Hooray for all the good news!!!
post #62 of 102
Yay for all the good news, but sorry you were scared for a while.

I am getting on my nerves with my nesting urges. Seriously. I cannot stop cleaning/purging/scrubbing/noticing things need doing. And dh works all week so he cannot do my honey do list fast enough. I am turning into a demon nester woman. I really need to chill.

I have a dr appt in one hour so going to get ready to sit in a waiting room for hours on ends. Despite working non stop yesterday and feeling like I wanted to die from exhaustion, I still did not sleep at all. My best sleep seems to be from 8-11am. Oh well, at least I am not sick anymore. Saw the nurse Monday and hbs were good, everything looked good. I am gaining weight really fast. I ate wayyyyyyyy too much over the weekend with all that funeral food.
Did I mention my dh is the most sweetest, kindest, loving man in the world? Everyday he tells me how beautiful I am, even though I look like death warmed up.

I hope everyone else is doing okay!!!! I am so ready to find out the gender of these babies!! I am 15 weeks today!!

That is really nice of your dh. Yesterday mine told me I looked nice, that lately I've been looking "frumpy". At first I was but then decided to take it as a complement... I'm at the stage where most maternity clothes are too big but regular clothes are too small, so yeah, I probably look frumpy most of the time. It was nice of him to complement me anyway

I, too, can't wait to find out the sex. I'm 16w 3d now, i have my next mw appt on Tuesday and will have an u/s I guess a couple wks after that. I really want another boy, everyone I meet thinks it's gonna be a boy so I'm soooooo curious! I know a lot of people wait til the birth to see the sex but I can't stand it. There's already enough going on I think I don't know, if I can know this, then I want to!

Not knowing the sex gives me a little more incentive to push that thing out! LOL

That is exactly what I am saying when people say- "don't you want to know.."

Trekking - Oh that is horrible they got you all scared. I'm so glad that everything is perfect with your little girl!

I had my second midwife appt today - everything is looking good. I'm 16w but my uterus is all the way up at my belly button. How is it possible that I'm not showing yet? I have a little pooch..but if you didn't know I was pregnant you would think it's just normal. Heartbeat is still in the 150s. The best part is - she's going to do all my visits in my home! She normally doesn't start home visits until 36w but she goes past my house every week so if we schedule my appt for Wednesdays she can just stop by!

We'll definitely be *trying* to find out the sex. We didn't with our first child...I prefer knowing! 2.5 weeks left!!

Well I am back from the Drs....I have to go next fri(after I am 16 weeks) to have another u/s......kinda excited, now I might not have to wait til Oct to see gender, it might be next week! Ob says my weight gain is great!!! He didnt tell me off for gaining oh about 25 pounds in 15 weeks. he said everything looked great and I was doing great. I just love my OB and his office. They are so sweet.

I am so there.Its so hot here, still in the 90s and will be probably til late Novemeber, so I should be able to get by with my skirts/dresses I have been wearing. The mat shorts are too big, my shorts are too little. Oh well, at least we are healthy!

I am so hungry. DH was supposed to be home by 4 30......its 6. Ive been waiting on him so that I can go get something to eat and rush to his grandfathers. Got word that he is not doing well.

Thanks everyone, Im really happy for my hubby, hes been working hard to earn that promotion.

Im delaying making the appointment for the 20 week ultrasound. Ill be 20 weeks 3 days when DH gets home from Guam and Im hoping they end up booked by the time I call so they say I have to get it done at 21-22 weeks. DH is kind of bummed that he won't be able to see an ultrasound with this pregnancy (I wasn't totally sure of my dates so they did a vaginal ultrasound on the first appointment to check dates so he couldn't come in with the girls) so Im hoping if I delay a bit I can go in a little late.

Im having mixed feeling about finding out the gender. In one way it would be a TON easier, especially if we end up moving, to only have one set of clothes to wash and get ready. In another way no matter what the gender is someone is going to be disappointed and I don't really want to deal with the comments being made. Seriously, I wish people would just be happy the baby is healthy and forget the gender. Its not like it makes a huge differance. I couldn't care less what gender it is, Im happy to have a healthy child, can't everyone else be happy to?..

Had an apt today

I had an apt today. Baby's heart is still in the 160's. Took my mw a little longer to find it this time which of course made me feel nervous for a few seconds, but then there it was, nice and strong. Also the baby was moving all around.

I told my mw i was hoping to feel more movement by now (i only feel the baby a little bit each night before bed it seems) and she said it's totally normal because at this point (i'm 16 weeks) the uterus is as big and fluid is as full as it's going to be in terms of ratio to the baby. That sounds more confusing then when she said it but basically as the baby grows from here on out it will take up more of the room and not have as much room to stretch out and swim around and therefore i'll feel the bumps more. Does that make sense?

I really love my mw and glad we get to have her the whole time (and not have to switch to the ob's...if you remember my post from a while back, my mw said i could request her the whole time and she'll come to my birth even if she is not on call )

Overall great apt. Oh and i found out the protocal about my strep B thing (remember my uti thread?). Because it was confimed i had it during pregnancy, i HAVE to get the antibiotics at birth. She still *is* going to test me for it later on (the swab test) if I want to. It won't get me out of needing the antibiotics if it's negative BUT she was saying it's a good idea to do the test becasue this way if the baby is sick for some reason at birth, they will be able to rule out the strep as a cause (becuase of the negative swab) where as if i don't re test they may have to assume the strep B is what made the baby sick and have to do more testing and meds to the baby.

I hope that all made sense, i have MAJOR preggo brain and I know there are tons of typos because my fingernails are too long for me to type efficiently on my laptop keyboard LOL.

Our next apt is for the big U/S No finding out the gender for us though!!

hollytheteacher--congrats on the great appointment...it is so wonderful to like your midwife! i did understand your explanations on everything, so even with the preggo brain, you made sense!

Nice. I'm excited not to know this time. Though I'm sure it's going to kill me. All the temptation during all those u/s of my cervix... Not looking forward to that. I feel less crampy today. And I keep trying to go without my vicodin, but if I move around, I get sore and need it anyway. I might not need it by tomorrow if I take it easy, I think.

Wow, I just saw this thread! I was just thinking I wish there was a place I could just blab about being pregnant.

I am having spotting today, which is freaking me out after that huge bleed I had almost two weeks ago. I would feel better if I could feel some movement, I am 17 and a halfish weeks, seems like I should feel something? I have never been pregnant before, so sometimes I feel a little quiver and wonder if it was movement or gas or something.

Heartbeat was good at 155 last friday though.

I told four people at work I am pregnant, but I still hesitate to say anything to the whole pack since things seem iffy.

On the finding the gender thing out, I am totally going to find out!!!!! We have sort of been mulling over names and not agreeing to much, I think if I could discard a whole gender's worth of names it would be easier. Plus, I really feel like it is a boy and want to know if I am right.

Hooray for good news and to greenmulberry.

I'm having a terrible week - it's INSANELY hot here (it was up to 113*F yesterday, it just DOES NOT get that hot here, ever.) I'm dying, it's just too hot to live.

I'm really hoping that Hurricane Earl takes the heat with him, if he must hit!
post #74 of 102
I'm 15 weeks here and the 24 hour nausea is gone, exhaustion is lessening, but I'm still getting blind-sided by unexpected puking bouts.

Still not feeling much movement, very tiny flutters once in a while...but, we can often feel a little bulge when the baby is hanging out in a certain spot. The other night I showed dh and he put his hand on it and then his eyes popped out because he said he felt a kick. I thought that seemed surprising since I hadn't even felt it. But later that night I put my hand on my belly and felt 4-5 little kicks in a row!! This is the earliest dh has ever been able to feel anything.

4 friends had babies in August and that's been helping me get more excited about this baby. The last two babies arrived last week and both were totally amazing gentle births (one hospital water birth and one a homebirth).

I'm off to make those lemon bars that were suggested in the mothering pregnancy newsletter for this week.

Well, looks like another typhoon is heading our way! We have been here 3 1/2 years, the first year we were hit with two (one somewhat bad, one that was barely there) and then nothing until now.. I honestly could go the rest of the time without another one but I don't think thats going to happen.
post #76 of 102
so I just realized that I have a bunch of boy clothes saved but I'm having a girl! I wish I new a way to swap with someone who is in the opposite circumstance. Any ideas?
post #77 of 102
Trekking- how bout trying to post on craigslist asking? Or if you are a member of a playgroup/church/homeschool group etc asking around there might help as well. Even just asking among general aqantiences might help too, you never know who might be pregnant and you just don't know yet. I found out someone I work with doing a kids clothing swap is pregnant and due 3 weeks after me, she just isn't telling anyone because she had a second trimester loss earlier in the year and doesn't want to have to spread the news if she has another loss.
post #78 of 102
I feel sick today. I haven't really been able to keep anything down. Which I hope changes since my discharge paperwork says to call if I can't keep any fluids down, and I'm home alone with the kidlets at night. Blah. I just tried eating a piece of toast with just a little water. I'm hoping if I'm not too full it'll stay down a little better. It's not the pills, because I haven't taken any since 8am.

Today I busted deeper into the pile of donated maternity clothes and am wearing a nice comfy pair of pants with a full belly panel.

I don't need the full panel yet, but it is soooo much more comfortable than walking around with my pants unbuttoned!
post #80 of 102
i could never properly fit into full belly panels with my other pregnancies. They are comfortable to wear early on, but loose...and when my belly was big enough to fill them out, they clung on tightly in uncomfortable places. Maternity pants. sigh.

Last night was rough. My kids and fiance took turns waking me up from 1am-dawn...and between the turns they took, baby demanded to be fed and kicked my bladder enough to prompt me out of bed to pee. It's not always fun being the most popular person in the house. It's not that I'm especially physically tired, but I can already feel my brain just not working. And I really do enjoy being unconscious for several hours a day...I don't have to think, it's bliss!

But it's Friday, I don't have to make dinner because we're going to a pizza dinner birthday party, and I don't have anything I really *have* to accomplish today, so I guess it could be worse.

Ooh! And...I'm in a C-cup now! Began the pregnancy as an A. Eeeeee!
