The BSL Graduate/Stalking Thread - Winter 2011/2012 - Page 9

post #161 of 210

Hi all. Just stalking...

post #162 of 210

Woo, I'm behind. Baby and her big brother are keeping me busy. smile.gif

 

Kyamo, your baby is almost here!

 

Regarding spotting, I spotted very often during pregnancy, and all was well. On the other hand, I'm 5 weeks post partum and still bleeding! greensad.gif

 

Our little girl is very active, though she also loves just staring at our back speakers (black on white wall). Her brother also rolled over early, and he's a wild one. So I think they'll be a good match for playing. But our poor home will be a disaster zone. winky.gif

LTB, that melted my heart to read that your DD cried when you told her! I love it. Also, I am sorry you are so depressed about the weight. That is one thing I am really worried about as well, since I am starting out 30 lbs heavier than I was with DS. Not good! I'm scared to think how big I may get. I am really happy things are going well and you are feeling ok! Are you finding out what you are having?

 

Kyamo- Sorry, I forgot that so many midwives and ob's don't check for dilation..I've been so focused on the getting pregnant part for so long now! But I was glad mine did with DS, since it kind of gave me a heads up. I honestly didn't have any BH with DS. Anyway, I would think your vagina is just getting longer as part of the whole pregnancy..not sure why that happens. I hope it's all smooth sailing though during this last part of your pregnancy!

 

SweetBee- That is just too cute that your little girl is very active. That's how my DS was and still is so I completely understand the disaster zone you are expecting! I wonder if my next one will be the same way.

 

rcr- smile.gif hi!!!

 

AFM, still anxiously awaiting the big appt on Thursday. My guys both have a cold and I am trying so hard to not get really sick.

In all honesty, I am feeling so much better now that I just need the huge amount of snow to disappear, so I can walk more easily and even ride the bike to go swimming, I guess I do have hope that I don't have to gain at the same rate, at least not just tons of fat. We will have snow for at least another month, though... Also, I need to stick to eating low carb, as that is the only thing that works for me. I am so envious of those who don't have to think of it so much. I was telling someone yesterday how much I was craving a sweet bun (sugar, cardemum and white flour, that is about it). Her response: "I am sure it is ok if you have something like that just once a day!" It reminded me that my body really functions differently than that of many. If I had a treat every day, I am sure I would be at least 20 lbs heavier. I have never been able to eat stuff like that, not even as a kid (and not even when playing a sport 4-5 times a week.) I am just so jealous, as it would really make me day to have something with coffee each afternoon. (Dumb topic to whine about, but it is as it is.) I know there ARE low carb treats that I am able to have and managed to make something really nice yesterday, so I think I will simply need to plan better and learn to make new things.

 

We found out that we are having a boy. :) We are a bit scared, as our dd has been so easy. I "get her" so well and am not an active mama, so a little boy is a bit terrifying. Of course we do feel very, very thankful, as everything seemed to be okay. I am hoping that was my one and only ultrasound.

 

Thinking of you all!

lilmom - Just one more day till your appointment! Can't wait to hear the report!

 

LTB - Yay for a little boy! Now you can start getting all the obnoxious comments about how you have one of each and now you can stop! eyesroll.gif I am sure you will love being a mama to a little boy as well, however he turns out. I totally understand your feelings about snow. I have told dh that I just can't live somewhere with long winters because I get too depressed. (I spent four winters in Chicago at school, so this is not just a guess on my part.) I hope you can get an early spring! And I'm sorry... I think most people would gain weight if they had a sweet bun a day - I'm sure I would. I can appreciate that it might be more detrimental to you than the average person, though. I was blessed with a very good metabolism when I was younger, but it has been sucking it up in the last while (whether due to PCOS, fertility drugs, or aging, I don't know), and it's not fun. I'm not stressing it too much while I'm pregnant (though now that I'm not sick so much, I am trying to be more careful what I eat), but I know it's going to be tough trying to lose weight after the baby comes.

 

MBA - Good to hear from you! Glad your little ladies are doing well!

 

AFM, still no throwing up this week! I haven't felt awesome every day, but I am so excited to not be puking every morning! Now if I can just get that fabled second-trimester burst of energy...

post #168 of 210

Lilmom - I don't think I ever said Congratulations!  So happy to have you here.  Good luck on your appt. today!

 

LTB - My first was a girl and my second was a boy... I was never someone who really really wanted a boy so I had been hoping for another girl.  But my boy has been a totally different experience in so many ways, I'm glad I didn't miss it.  I'm thrilled that #3 is a boy, too.  There is just something about boys and their mamas (which I totally didn't understand until I had one!)

 

Monkey - I hated those "you have one of each, now you can be all done" comments! I got that all the time after DS was born... I just don't get it and find it very presumptuous... Happy to hear you are doing well, and I hope you keep feeling better and better as you get into the second trimester!

 

MBA - so happy to see you here and to hear an update on your girls.

 

Kyamo - you look great!  I remember that feeling when I passed full term with my baby... like she could come any day now, it was so surreal!  My stubborn girl held on until almost 42 weeks though and I had to be induced... hopefully your baby will be a little more cooperative!

 

Kinza - I just noticed your due date in July 27th... that's my birthday (and I have a twin brother).  Hope you are doing well!

 

AFM - Everything is looking good... I'm almost at 27 weeks.  Baby is measuring big just like my first two but his head is average sized (my first two had giant heads... thus the full labor followed by an unplanned C-section and medically assisted VBAC...) Still trying to decide how I want to deliver this one, my first two births were so traumatic that I am seriously considering a repeat C-section at 39 weeks...   

post #169 of 210

It was bad news at my Dr.'s appt. today. There was a sac but nothing in it. Now I'm just waiting on the inevitable. brokenheart.gif

 

Would really appreciate any prayers or good thoughts for DH and I as we are devastated, again.

post #170 of 210

LTB- You are going to love having a little boy. Don't worry, boys are fantastic. I'm excited for you.

post #171 of 210

Oh no no no no no Lilmom. Tears in my eyes feeling for you this morning. Awful, just awful news. I'm so sorry. 

 

I know you're probably too upset to be thinking along these lines, but I just hope you get that surge of fertility that is so common after a loss. Sweetest being a wonderful example of that.

So, so sorry, lilmom!!!!

 

Thank you for your nice comment to me, in the middle of all your sorrow.

post #177 of 210

So sorry Lilmom.  You are in our thoughts and prayers.  Hope to see you back here soon.

 

post #178 of 210

Thanks everyone. I will be back here one day, I hope.

post #179 of 210

Lilmom - just got on here to check up on you... so sorry to hear your news greensad.gif  I went through a similar experience last spring (baby was there at 6 weeks but way too small and I knew my dates were good).   You are in my thoughts and prayers...

Having a bunch of contractions today, much stronger and more painful than my regular BH. So far, ranging from 5-36 mins apart over 8ish hours. I think they are slowing down now, so I don't think this is going to turn into the real thing, but I do wonder what this might mean for the next few days! I'm 37.5 weeks.
