post #81 of 122

I haven't been on this group in ages. nice to see a chat going :)

 

I've been super busy with Homeschooling my 5yo, running a WAH business and just the normal everyday stuff. Also sewing baby things, diapers etc and knitting bean's woolie stash. 

 

I have been eating a little too much Chipotle though and need to force myself to stay away, but it's so good... lol.

Today is my 2 year old's birthday.  He's such a big kid now... as ambivalent as I have sometimes felt about this pregnancy, I look at him and I know it's going to be all right, because if his brother is half as great as he is, he's going to be pretty wonderful.

 

I have a repeat ultrasound today.  Nothing big-- my doctor just didn't get a clear visualization of his heart (what she saw looked good, but he kept moving so she kept getting just a sideways view of it or something) and also, he didn't have an inflated stomach bubble which can sometimes indicate a problem.  I haven't been stressing about it at all, but now that it's the day of, now I kind of am.  My in-laws are coming with us to the scan (they're in town for my older son's birthday) and I really don't want to receive bad news in front of them.  Urgle.

happy birthday to your little guy, coldandsleepy!  i hope you have a great day with your ILs.  i think two is a really fun age, and it's sweet hearing how your love for your son encourages you with thoughts of your new little guy.

 

good luck with the ultrasound, too.  i also have to have a repeat ultrasound on friday, cause we couldn't get a bunch of images the first time around, and i agree that while it's simple to put it out of mind when the appointment is far off, the closer i get, the more nervous i feel.  fingers crossed that everything is ok with your babe!

Happy birthday, little coldandsleepy!

Thank you for mentioning your occasional ambivalence. I'm still there and I can't seem to snap out of it. I'm guessing that's more common with subsequent pregnancies (as opposed to the first timers), but it also helps to imagine how my awesome kids will take in another to our little clan. I still feel *very* guilty about stealing the baby-dom away from my youngest.

chilichiki,  I'm having the random rib thing but not for that long.  Just pokes and kicks to the lowest ones for a few moments.  I never had that with my son.... and for some reason I was feeling it was too early for the little one to be reaching up that far, but so it is!  I feel like I am carrying much higher than with my son.  It definitely is a weird thing!

Holy crud!  November DDC has two births already!  bigeyes.gif  I'm not ready...need more time.

I'm having some of this too.  When people look right at my belly and ask how we're doing I automatically answer with news about Rocket, they have to prod to get pregnancy info out of me, I just don't think of it.  When I have those forehead smacking 'Oh, yeah, AND I'm pregnant" moments I feel like a huge jerk.  We're really excited about this baby, just so busy with a toddler that it isn't at the front of my brain I guess.  With the first one we were obsessed with the belly.  We're still obsessed with him.  I know when the new one is out he'll be just as enchanting, but for now "out of sight, out of mind" I guess.  I'm a little less ambivalent now that he's moving around more!

YIKES!  nut.gif  I can't even imagine.  We're looking at moving in November, maybe as late as early December.  If our Jan 8th Bean comes that early my brain will explode!

Not yet, but this baby is still pretty low (all of her many kicks and movements are just above my pelvis or even it in).

 

Last time around 34 weeks, though, my son was up against my ribs for several days. The first night I survived but did not sleep. The next day I was throwing up every few hours from the pain. Luckily, he decided to move somewhere less unpleasant after a few days, but not before I had been to the hospital (it was a Sunday) and then my doctor's office (the next day), but they couldn't really help. I was given some paracetamol for the pain, but I threw it up. greensad.gif

 

Wow, that sounded kind of depressing, but the pregnancy was otherwise just fine. I have never heard of a similar experience from anyone else, so maybe I just have a low pain threshold.

My god, my little one has been stuck in my rib for 12+ hours today and it is such an awful feeling!!

wow, guys, i'm so sorry about your babies up in your ribs like that.  it sounds terrible.  this is one time in life when it pays off to be freakishly tall- my torso has tons of room.  it kind of makes up for all the times i hit my head on light fixtures and generally look goofy.

 

i hope your babies cut you a break!  i guess you could look at it with gratitude that feet in ribs = baby head down.

now i will humbly shut my mouth.  :)

post #92 of 122

It sounds like it definitely isn't as bad for me as it is for you guys..... I can just feel the rib prods when I'm sitting down.  I'm pretty tall too, though.  I  hope they cut you all some slack soon!

post #93 of 122

It took until about two in the morning for my little guy to finally move out of my ribcage, but he keeps finding his way back there and randomnly jabbing me.  Uck.

 

When I was pregnant with my first son, he never was anywhere near my ribs, so this is something new to me. OF course my son was a little guy, and this one already is measuring a few weeks ahead (which makes me paranoid!)

 

I can actually feel between my ribs and feel his limb poking me. I'm not in pain, just some really awful discomfort.  Last night was hard..I actually debated going into the ER to see if there was anything they could do.  He moves the rest of his body around still though, so I don't think he is getting stuck, just must feel extremely comfortable to him.  About all I can do right now is just push on the spot and hope he moves (which he occasionally does, but then like I said seems to find his way back). 

 

I must have a stubborn child.

Not much going on here. DS was "helping" me wash the kitchen floor a bit ago and splashed warm vinegar water EVERYWHERE...we smell like pickles. Maybe we'll go "clean" the shower!

post #95 of 122

This baby is working his way up under my ribs as well.  I'm really short so it's not too surprising, but I don't remember it happening with DS1.  Yesterday was awful though - I had round ligament pain on the right side and the baby's butt or something was pressed right up against it as well.  I was doubled over most of the day...and trying to attend to a very clinging/fussy 2 yr old (which is very abnormal for him).  Today was much better - the sun FINALLY came out this afternoon so we just spent a few hours outside!  YAY!

how did things go?  i was thinking of you guys today. blowkiss.gif   i hope it was a memorable birthday, and that everything is looking good with the u/s!

post #97 of 122

I feel baby in my ribs too!! It gets painful sometimes if i move really suddenly. And this little one is full of hiccups! Oh my goodness, it is getting slightly annoying... lol. 

 

Happy birthday to your little one coldandsleepy. 

post #98 of 122

Good news on the ultrasound!  Not only was his stomach bubble present this time, but my doctor also kept marvelling at how large it was.  "Wow!  He must have just swallowed a TON of fluid."  She also got a beautiful view of the heart this time and it looks great.  The rest of the evening, my 2 year old kept asking, "see mommy's baby?  see mommy's baby again?" which was really funny because he didn't seem that impressed at the time.
