It breaks my heart to not see DD the whole time I'm there. : It's just more incentive to get my vbac and get out of there so we can be together as a family.
Oooo, how crummy! I am going to not think about that until it gets closer, I plan to have dd there for labour if it's a reasonable time of day. Here's hoping for your VBAC, for one more reason!

This gets under my skin! I never knew, not even when we got a bfp and neither did anyone else. I'm just saying some version of, "Well, all I can say is that this really is a miracle and we are so lucky."

Did this bug any of you? What did you say?
That would sooooooo bug me!! I feel bad sometimes for how dodgy we are (like someone asked me if I'd be having my tubes tied after this baby and I said it'd be dh's problem - of course he has severe MFI , so our contraception is kind of up to him). But dumb comments like that are why I am not honest, I don't want to hear it and this way when people say the wrong thing, I know they really don't know better. Why are people so nosey and in your business? Grr. You are kind to be not rude when you get that comment, not sure I'd be able to poker face it.

AFM, appt yesterday. Yep, I'm still getting bigger. Yep, the babies are still in there with hb's. Ok, see you next week. Can you tell the weekly appointments irritate me.
Yes, we are all well at the moment. It seems like there are so many bugs going around that she or my dh get something every couple of weeks. So far so good for me (yay Neti pot!!). Thanks for caring guys!

Oh Juliasmom, I cannot imagine how uncomfortable you must be (is that like saying "you're going to feel some pressure"? ie. massively annoying understatement?). I am so so happy for you that you are this close to term. Even though you have to go get checked every week. Take good care of yourself.

I had my u/s on Wed, and found out that they don't tell sex unless you are after 20 weeks ( I was 19 weeks, 2 days). Baby looks healthy, but wouldn't move around so she could do all the spine measurements, so I have to go back in a couple of weeks. Now that I've decided I want to know the sex this time, I really want to know. NOW!!! And man, I am really big already. It is freaking me out to know how much longer I have and how much bigger I'll get.

to all, hope everyone is doing great.

Gumby - Those pictures made me cry :

I am so happy for all the new mama's on this thread. It's a beautiful thing, especially after all that we've been thru to get here.

Perdita - I will go into spontaneous labor. The ob will let me go until 42 weeks, which I really don't think I"ll make. Even if a c-section is then required due to babies position, at least they chose the birthdate.

CRM - Sorry you have to wait for the gender. Is that so they can be more sure? I know I got a preliminary guess at 16 weeks that was confirmed at 20 weeks. I hope you're just popping out now and the baby gives you a little break so you don't get too big.

All of you ladies are so sweet to be so supportive. I'm actually feeling better now that I have for the last 3-4 weeks. I think it's because I'm at term and more at peace with the idea that I only have to hang on for up to 3 more weeks. OF course, then I think about labor and that kinda freaks me out. Besides, I'll admit the attention I get now whenever I go anywhere is a big ego boost. They're still shocked each Sunday when I make it to yet another service. I haven't done belly shots, but I"ll try to get one before I deliver, just to memoralize the shape of my body, and to remind me to never let it get this way again.

Just some advice to all you ladies, build up your immune system as much as you can. I rarely ever get sick, yet have caught every cold, infection, etc. that I've been around for the last month. My system is just shot and I'm so thankful to be done with work and am hoping the extra rest will help me get over it all before birth.

Gumby- He is adorable!!! So sweet. Thanks for sharing with us!

CRM- That stinks that they wouldn't tell you the gender! What is 5 days gonna do?? Weird.

Juliasmom- Yay for 37 weeks!!

AFM- I am 34 weeks tomorrow. Still doing well. Although now I have the cold from hell, so I am feeling really crummy.

Hope you all are well!

You are doing awesome as well!! Take real good care of yourself and keep on top of that cold. The first cold from hell I got led to the ear infection from hell. I now see more benefits to have a spring/summer baby.

First I want to thank all of you who affirmed that I was not off my rocker to be totally irked by the "I KNEW it would happen" comments. If I get them again, I'll be a little franker.

Gumby, What a love.

Perdita, It's SO awesome about you BIL/SIL! I love hearing about ART successes. All the best to them~

J's Mom and Mandy, First off, you are both amazing. Twins and working through the last frontier. Sorry you've both been sick. Hoping for a healing and recvoery respite before those babies come!

CRM, That 5 day thing seems a bit literal. I mean surely they could take a peek and make a guess.

AFM, I'm great but so so dry. I keep drinking and am getting a good amount of fluid, but my nose and throat are parched dry. I'm going to pick up a humidifier and see if that helps. When DH takes a shower I hang out in the bathroom. I think our house is just too dry for some reason. Anyhow I keep reading about excess salivation and runny noses and I'm confused about this symptom. Anyone?

No, they have a policy of not telling until 20 weeks to prevent people from terminating "wrong" sex pregnancies!! That issue is specific to some cultures in my city, and I don't belong to any of those cultures, but they have to make the rule solid for everyone or they would be discriminating. I told her this was a $25,000 baby and I don't give a damn, I'd just like to know, but she wouldn't tell (the tech obviously knew). Had I known, I would have booked it for a few days later, but I have to go back in a couple of weeks anyways, so they'll darn well tell me then.

I am so excited for you making it this far!!! And even contemplating going to 42 weeks, wow! Do take some photos, the babies will love to look at them some day. I've been starting to wonder if there'll just be a break in your posts and we won't even know you're in labour. When it starts, can you take a minute to let us know?

I know, I really tried to convince the tech to bend the rules, but.... no. I hope you feel better soon!!!!

Poet, would a Neti pot help? Or that saline nasal spray? I have been drinking lots and am always thirsty as well, it's annoying because I am soooooo bored of going to the bathroom every 5 minutes!

Peace and love to all and keep those cutie baby pics coming!!!!! Congrats again Gumby!!

Water broke and we're off. 99.9% chance it will end in c-section since A was complete breech this afternoon and B was transverse. If so, I won't be able to update until released in a couple of days. Wish us well.

I'm not doing to well either... The holidays are always crazy for me so I end up relying on Panera Bread and other take out much more than I should... and water (and only water and unsweetened tea for some reason) is giving me crazy heartburn right now so I'm drinking Gatorade all the time to quench my thirst
