I had my GTT today. I assume I will pass as I have never had a problem before. Dh went with me in the hopes of touring our new hospital, but they said they were full & couldn't show us around. I was bummed. But at least we got to go to lunch together. I should find out the results on Monday at my next appointment.   I don't like the new format either. What happened to our signatures?   How do you know if you are anemic? I mean besides blood work? I'm not sure if...
I'm 26w (yesterday) and I have been getting bh for weeks now. I think it's completely normal. I wouldn't worry unless they become regular or are painful. Geez, isn't this what our bodies are supposed to be doing now anyway? Oh, I also get them when I know I haven't had enough water. We are still having sex
Uggg, I have 1 girl and 4 boys. I have been battling this battle for years. I wanted to add more children to my family not a specific gender. I have never been disappointed and I firmly believe you get what you are meant to have. There was such a hard core demand for this baby to be a girl. I almost didn't find out the sex because I felt like our families would love a little boy less than a girl. It drives me crazy. It turns out everyone got lucky and she is in fact all...

After my third baby who was 9lb 7oz I have had to do the test twice. Once in the first trimester and I need to do it again this week. I have never had to do the 3 hour one at all. I keep trying to tell them I just make big babies! Can you ask to do the regular test first? Chances are you don't have GD, you just make big babies too.
I have been feeling a little off too. The weather is changing and the heat is on which has been drying out my nose and throat. I had a wicked spell of the worst stomach issues on Thursday night - worse than labor! And I have been in crabby overdrive. It feels like everything is just getting on my nerves. And I'm crying at the drop of a hat. Otherwise I'm totally happy and very excited for this baby. I think it's called nearing the "third trimester" (add scary music here)...
I have been drinking swiss water processed decaf when I do have a cup of coffee - I had no ides there was an issue. FYI: I have a Keurig coffee maker and Paul Newman's Special Decaf is swiss water processed.
besides me? I'll be 26 weeks tomorrow. My belly is as big as I think I was full term with my first! I am getting tired. I can do some chores & have to rest, do some more & have to rest. I have been having a cup of caffeinated tea a few days a week just to keep up. Mentally I could go on like the Energizer Bunny, but man my body is not cooperating. It's going to be a long 14 more weeks! Oh and by the end of the day my back is killing me like crazy!!!
DDCC to say Congrats! I am expecting #6 and my children will be 10, 9, 5, 4 & 2 when this baby is born! Having a large family is a blessing! Challenging, but absolutely amazing!
I was just in the same boat. I had a marginal previa at my 18 week u/s. I had to go on pelvic rest, and stop exercising. Every time I did exercise I spotted or bled. In fact I had spotted pretty much from 8 weeks on. I was well behaved and went back at 24 weeks and my placenta had totally moved out of the way. I now have the green light to resume all activity. I however, have not continued to work out. I have a history of complicated pregnancies and my dh, mw, & I have...
