There is a constant underlying ouch, but this is a sharp/stabby pain, particularly bad whenever I have BH.  It feels 'off' to me somehow.  My OB is good, and not over-reactive, but concerned enough with my history that he put in an order for an US should it not get better in the next day or so.

Well let us know he finds!  Mine isn't constant, so I'm not overly-concerned about it.  I'll ask my OB about it the next time I'm there.  It does hurt enough though, that I totally have to breath through the pain, so that's weird.  It lasts about 30 seconds.  Is anyone else having weird pains?  I also had these cramps that were in the front and in my back really low, but I was not contracting when they happened.  They would come in waves every 5 minutes or so.  I'm wondering if the baby was on my colon and I was trying to pass something, because I went a lot later that day, but they were also freaking me out.  Seems like I'm all cramps these days!

If only the legs weren't finding purchase in my ribs still!  (Darn short torso!)

 

I couldn't sleep well last night, so I got up at about 4am.  While I know I will regret it later, it's kind of nice to have the quiet house to myself for a couple hours.  Ahh- three sleeping children! Summer appears to be having a last hurrah today with highs in the 90s, so I plan to do as little as possible later in the day. Hmm, maybe I can find a movie for the kids and nap.... mmm.. afternoon nap!

 

I *may* have an ultrasound in the next week or so- I've been having very sharp pains in one point of my uterus, and they are worried about scarring and rupture. I think that if I do, I might just see if we can figure out the gender. :D I knew things would get more medical towards the end, so I find ways to make peace with that as I can. 


My baby has recently made residence in my ribs too. I don't remember my older 2 really bothering my ribs all that much, but this one!.... I get woken up with him kicking my ribs!

I had a 3hr glucose screening today. Not fun. I had to stay in the dr's office from 8am-11:30. I did get a chance to work on a paper for a class, but I still would have rather slept in a little more.

I have no idea what position my baby is in :-/ I think she may still be laying straight across!!! She feels kind of low but not super low... and she is definately not in my rib cage.

 

Mummoth- I think you have met your drama quota! I'm really glad the school stepped in and took it seriously though...

 

BennyPai- I like the idea of the social group - but, I don't have time to organize it!

My most recent ultrasound yesterday showed both the babies are frank breech.  I was wondering why I feel so beat up - I have two heads and 2 sets of feet kicking me in the ribs.  When I have a BH my belly takes on this weird heart shape.  Now I am trying some spinning babies techniques.  My 2 year old seems to think that if I do an anterior inversion off the couch I am really just creating a human slide for her to climb on (can't be good for my back.)

I had a really good MW appt yesterday. She was in the area, so she came to the house, it was such a relief because she lives about 1hr15min away. So, all was good, and I see her again in 4-5 weeks. I suppose after that we'll squeeze them a little closer.  My girls loved hearing the HB, I think it's the first time for them both. My 4 yr. old was there was DD2 was born and still remembers it and can't wait for this one!!

When my past MDC  DDCs ended, we had to find an off-site location to continue chatting as a group.  Unfortunately, a lot of the DDC members didn't come along when the group left MDC.  greensad.gif  Once in a while, I happen across people from my old DDCs in Life With a Babe.

 

This is why I'm excited that MDC is hosting on-site social groups so we can stay in touch without leaving MDC.  I don't think there is much time commitment involved to be the organizer.  I'll have to ask some questions about that...

I don't keep in touch with any from DS2's - but, didn't get very involved either as FT student; but, I am still FB friends with several of the people from DS1's - one lady I see pretty often IRL too because we live close and she is also friends with my mom because of homeschooling haha ;-) Even so, the social group sounds liek a great plan...I kinda like you ladies :-)

Thanks, LilMomma83.  :)

I just re-visited the social group thread.  AveryLamb is on top of it.  Looks like we'll be co-leading.  smile.gif 

Other than approving members, the only other responsibility a leader has is to enforce MDC user guidelines -- our DDC has never had an issue with violations, at least not that I've seen.  In the unlikely event that there is a problem, I don't mind taking care of it.

He's home! DH & I spent yesterday together and he went to work this morning. It feels good to have him back.

 

I went and looked the other day and could find our social group :( I'll have another check now & post the link if I find it incase any one else is having the same issue.

post #32 of 122

I can't find our social group. lol!

post #33 of 122

I don't know if the social group was started yet.  We've posted on the social group thread.  I'll check and see if we have a response from the admin/mod/powers that be...

 

ETA:  I don't see a post from the Admin yet on the social groups thread.  I'll definitely update here when there is confirmation that our group is started. I'm thinking the social group will be mainly for staying in touch after this December DDC closes (a month past December, I think...). 

I'm hoping the social group will be started and we'll have time to work out all of the kinks by the time babes start arriving.  ...  Right?   orngbiggrin.gif

Oh my gosh!   I need my patience back SOOOOON.  DD is driving me up a wall today.  The drama!!

 

The social group thing seems like an ok idea (I have mixed feelings about them as I think that having a fairly open format in general is preferable, but I do understand people who might want more security than that as well... ) It's frustrating though because you can't really peek in on the months surrounding your own anymore.... 

 

Cool weather is finally here again,  so I'm going to try to find a little bit of inner Zen by hiding in the kitchen and baking. 

post #35 of 122

Ohhhhh... that could be why it was nowhere to be found! 

 

We're heading out to my parent's cabin for the weekend tonight! It's supposed to be wet all weekend, but DH is going to teach us a skip-bo game that his brother gave him when he was up for his moms memorial. And DD is bringing her guitar so she can jam with Grampa! It'll be a good time :)

So I went for my one hour Glucose test on Wednesday, and got a call yesterday that I will need to do the 3 hour one because my number was 149 (which I think is slightly high) their cut off is 130, but I hear some places is 140.

This upcoming week is fall break, so I can't go and spend 3 hours with DS at the lab to do this since everyone I know works during the week and I don't have a sitter. So I will have to do it the week after.

I went into panic mode when she said that to me, she told me not to worry that this doesn't mean I have GD yet!

I never had it with DS, I am a little overweight, and only my grandma has diabetes. 

People blame it on poor diet etc, but I have known many woman who were their normal weight, ate super healthy and still got it.

 

I want to get this out of my head for a while, but it keeps sneaking back in! :(

Even if it does come back as a problem (and many MANY women who 'fail' the 1 hr will pass the 3 hr)  you may well be able to control the numbers through diet and exercise alone.  If you want to have some reassurance in the meantime, pick up a glucose monitor and a few strips and track your blood sugars from now until the test.  If anything does come back on the test as being off, you'll need to start by tracking numbers anyway, and it is really a better overall picture of what is going on for you throughout the day.

EuroMama- My mom had GD a couple times and controlled it just fine with her diet....so hopefully IF you do not pass the 3hr it will be ok.

 

I am SO happy- My SIL is organizing a (small) baby shower for me/baby! Its going to be on Christmas Eve when our extended family is in town...baby will be born by then most likely, but, I think stuff wise there is plenty we can wait to purchase until after birth - we already have most of the absolute nessecities (other than clothes, but, a coworker has promised me lots of those). The biggest thing is that it will be great just to celebrate the little one, also it kind of sets in stone which week MIL will come and stay with us (week before Christmas) and that should be when baby is at least a couple weeks old so I think that might work better...she's well meaning, but, opinionated, and likes to be entertained....she does REALLY help out financially though, and like I said - she is very well meaning...I'm just not sure I want her here the first couple days after baby is born, you know? I there is no way she would be invited to the birth (which she was eluding to wanting to do) she just isn't the type of person I would want there (and I am pretty open about who comes, as you may have seen from my other post - I like lots of people...just they need to be a certain type of person). Anyway, planning the shower with SIL (she basically has it planned and was just consulting me on the theme and guest list and date) really made my day. :-)

 

Hope everyone is doing well :-)

The social group is there now, so when this group closes (end of January, I think), we'll still have a place to connect on MDC.  I recommend joining before this group is officially closed so we have time to work out any problems before we're consumed with our new babes.  My understanding is that you can go to mothering.com/community/groups and find our group there, named December 2011 DDC, click on it and have some kind of "Join" button to click on.  Then one of us will approve you and that's that...  I hope it's that simple. 

Here is a link that I hope will take us directly to the social group:

Time is sneaking up on me! I am 31 weeks already and feel like I am not prepared at all for this baby to arrive.

 

Yesterday I got ambitious and organized all the baby/kid clothes, put them in boxes, labeled them, and rearranged the closet in the kids' room! I really only need NB, 0-3, and 3-6m clothes.. all of those that I had got donated to a friend- who is planning on giving them back as soon as we're able to meet up.

 

We really need to buy a van. Not only is DF carless at the moment, but there is just no way we can fit an infant seat in our car we have now (infant + convertible + booster). So we have about $1000, give or take, to work with. Anyone have a cheap older van that doesn't need repairing all the time, they'd recommend? We could use that $1000 for a down payment, but I just don't want a car payment and more expensive insurance.. financing isn't totally out of the question if we can't find a decent van in our pricerange.
