post #41 of 52
Well 19 weeks this week and ugh. Back to feeling like crap. MY RLP is out of control. If I sit or stand forso long, I get it. If I roll over wrong, I get it. It never ends. Also, the backache is starting up already. No problems with heartburn that much. My libido is so high, too, but I cant do anything about it, because I am hurting so much in my sides from RLP, I cant move to DTD.
I am also very hot most of the time. I get huge hot flashes if the temp is higher than 75 and feel sick like I am going to puke and or pass out. B/p is still holding at 90/55 so low. No swelling going on yet, so far. Scored a lot of maternity clothes this weekend at yard sales. Tried them on, they will fit me for about oh another few weeks. Other than that, hanging in there....waiting for next monday, when I get to see the babies again on u/s and hopefully see the sexes!!

well, 17wks here and currently freaking OUT about how much weight ive gained...as of the scale this morning, ive put on 18lbs!! thats just so much.

i have been eating more...but not all the time...and maybe ive been using more butter than usual...heh.

the one thing ive definitely stopped doing is regular exercise...i need to get back into a gym routine now that im no longer feeling nauseous all the time...i still get pretty tired, but its manageable and i could stand to do an hour walk here and there. its still way too hot where i live to do this outside pushing a double stroller up all the hills around here.

Talk about a freak out!! I am HUGE and miserable already!!
But on the plus side,OB says that babes should be between 5-6 pounds at birth, judging by my weight gain......

i haven't been weighed since 18 weeks, since i packed up my scale and started this move across the country, but up till that point i was nearly perfectly on track for a pound a week, so 18 at 17 sound just great.

it will be interesting to see what comes of an appointment tomorrow and my grown in size and weight, i have so little to compare it to. of course the scales there never tell the same story as the way i do it first thing in the morning after bathroom and before too much food.
not that it matter a lot one way or the other, but i like the consistency my home weighing gives me to track the change.

Anything else you want to share? Really depressed I can't have a perfect h/b like I imagined, because FL is one of the most bass ackwards states in the nation. I'm having to transfer to a CNM (which will likely be more like a nurse than a m/w, so I know arguments will be forthcoming) Urgh. Just the thought of a hospital birth has been stressing me out, gonna labor as long as possible at home, and hope they just "pop out" before I get to the hospital

welcome to the new ladies!!!!

will update the front page soon.

as for me, i met the folks at the military hospital in my new town and they suck
so i went and met the home birth midwife (that also has privileges at one, no where near me, hospital) and i like her and her team so far and that is a relief.

so i have some pretty big decisions to make about what route i will take and a lot of talking to my DH as to his feelings and worries.

meenwhile my belly just keeps growing and Wed is another big scan, they are redoing my anatomy scan scan the other records never made it over and it was "too early"
im letting them because i felt like the first lady rushed thru things way too fast and never measured most things i hear are normally measured in this scan. (organs and such)
the next day i go back to the midwife for my first private full appointment with her and we will have a lot to talk about as i decide what the the best path for my babies births.

all this time i have still been living in a long stay hotel and looking for a house to rent every day, im so sick of this living out of a box and not knowing where i'll be next week. i just want to nest and enjoy this wonderful pregnancy, it really is going so well and i feel like im missing it.

just got back from the anatomy scan and i'll get the full details soon...but as for the twins' sexes, we've been informed that we're expecting our 3rd and 4th DAUGHTERS...wow.

i have to say i was surprised since i was convinced they were one of each...and then a little sad for my son since he wont be getting a brother (even though hubs and i both thought separately that we could 'try for a boy'...though that is just crazytalk)...

but as surprise/shock has worn away...im feeling pretty amazed that there are two more little girls coming to live with us.

they were measuring:

a: 18w5d
b: 19w3d

im 19w1d today so that is good!

i can't believe i am still pregnant!!! due date is 10-18.

amazingly i feel okay. i really, really want to meet my babies though. i def feel ready for this next step.

babies are measuring 6 1/2 lbs each... moving like crazy. both are head down.

cervix at the last check was 2-3/80% so hopefully something will start up soon.

my mw/ob will probably start talking induction at the due date... though they will try stretch/sweep, castor oil before pit so that makes me feel better.
