Yup.  I noticed it last night in a different forum, but didn't notice it here until I looked for it, since I normally just click through the subbed threads. 

 

ETA - I tried posting a question in the Q&A forum right after posting this, and apparently it's a known issue due to a software update, and they're working on it.

Body changes and other milestones: Feeling baby move a lot more lately. I love it! & I finally have a baby belly vs. just looking fat haha

Thoughts: It has been over 5 years since my last pregnancy. & I just can't believe how much faster I got uncomfortable this time around. I don't know if I am just way more out of shape, carrying higher or just a big whiner. lol Either way, I am a little nervous for what the future holds.


I feel exactly the same way! Not only am I eating cereal (and other breakfast foods) all the time, I am carrying high and get uncomfortable especially after eating. So, basically I eat a giant bowl of cereal, feel way too full and uncomfortable, wait a little bit until I feel better, and then pour another bowl of cereal. <sigh> this is why I gain 50 pounds when I am pregnant. lol.gif

I hope they fix it too! The new threads are still coming up in the little navigation thing above this reply box, so I am able to see Linnie's spotlight and our other threads...it just takes forever to get to them!

I've banned cereal from the house, for now. I don't know my limit!

 You just described me perfectly, Meredith!

I'm having the same issue with the DDC page. :(

The same thing happens to me.  I usually have a bowl of cereal before bed, but I've had to cut it out because after I eat it and lay down it starts coming back up.  :(  So gross and uncomfortable.  So, I've stopped eating anything after about 9pm.  I get so hungry though!
 

 


ETA:  I forgot why I came here.  Oops!  I went to the Midwife today, and I have a kidney infection. :(  She gave me a list of stuff to start taking: GSE, cranberry, apple cider vinegar and a probiotic.  I hope it works, because I do not want to be put on antibiotics.  Of course, I will if I have to...but hopefully I don't have to!

post #47 of 80

Ooo...we are out of cereal.  I'll text dh to get some on the way home.  That's all my high carrying overly full belly wants, too.  Strange.

 

Sorry about the kidney infection.  Ugh.

 

My kids are all sick, and exhausted.  Their snoring is keeping each other up at night, too, and so they aren't even getting enough rest to feel better.  And at naptime, the second someone moves (even me), they are all up.  I just made them go back to bed.  It wasn't pretty, but they so need it.

Try digestive enzymes or papaya enzymes shortly after eating.  It helps prevent the reflux.  I was keeping the bottle on my nightstand until I packed it for our Xmas trip, it was the only thing that helps me (besides avoiding wheat completely, which I find very difficult). 

 

post #49 of 80

Name: "casmer"

Weeks/Days along: 19w6d

Appointments: Had my anatomy scan today everything looks great!

Symptoms: Reflux has improved since I started a probiotic.  Still there, but not as bad.  Still pretty hungry

Food: Craving sweet stuff (which is nothing new for me) and crab puffs

Exercise: Went to the gym yesterday, it was nice getting back into the swing of things after the holidays

Body changes and other milestones: I'm definitely showing now!

Thoughts: I'm just incredibly happy that everything appeared "normal"  I don't think I could handle any extra anxiety at this point.  Stupid hormones are not being nice to me.

 

For this week only-- Any New Year's resolutions/ reflections? We are doing "no TV Sundays".  It was really nice and really weird all at the same time.  We both got tons of reading done and DH played the piano for the first time in a LONG time...like probably year.  The piano definitely needs to be tuned ;)

 

Oh yeah...IT'S A GIRL!!!!!!!  babygirl.gif

 

I'm SO excited and I think it's cool that my intuition was spot-on!  I'm aware of the 50/50 chance...but it's still nice to think I "knew" :)

Name: Maggie

Weeks/Days along: 20weeks4days

Appointments: I had an anatomy scan today. JUST ONE BABY!!! Everything looked good to me. 2 techs scanned me, and one was super stern and wouldn't let me see the screen. 

Symptoms: indigestion alot, and I am not sure what foods are causing it as my diet is pretty bland. Feeling big.

Food: Loving eggs and cheese lately. And juice like crazy. 

Exercise: Walking the dog, yoga mildly... nothing strenuous

Body changes and other milestones: I have def. popped out. My belly is very pregnant looking. Bigger boobs again. 

Thoughts: I was a little disappointed that there was only one twin, as we have been psyching ourselves out for 2 for the last couple of weeks. BUT- very relieved at the same time. Two is alot of pressure at once. And expensive. 

 

For this week only-- Any New Year's resolutions/ reflections?  Walking more often and doing more stretching. Having date nights again as we haven't had one since Nov.

Name: Marina

 

Weeks/Days along: 19.5 weeks

 

Appointments: Ultrasound on the 11th, hopefully we'll be able to determine the sex then. I'm really excited to find out...it seems like the final push I need to really get my excitement going. Plus, then we can really start arguing about names, haha.

 

Symptoms: Nothing too bad, though I'm starting to have trouble getting comfortable at night and the whole-must-pee-after-every-5oz-of-liquid dance has truly begun. I guess I've started to produce a little colostrum, maybe? I've been noticing some stains on my tank tops for the last 2 weeks. I have zero/zilch/nada libido...I would pretty much give anything to get that 2nd semester burst of "energy".

 

Food: Weirdly enough, craving a lot of salad though still only really interested in eating when other people fix it for me. Luckily, my husband has really taken an interest in learning to cook over the last few months, which is awesome. I blame some of my lack of food enthusiasm on having to argue with my toddler constantly about eating something other than cereal.

 

Exercise: I guess knitting doesn't count, huh? Took advantage of my husband being off work last week to take a prenatal yoga class, the first yoga class I've taken since 2 weeks before my son was born. Turns out, i have a lot of muscles I'd completely forgotten about in my thighs.

 

Body changes and other milestones:  I finally popped out the week of xmas! Very exciting, and then the next night, I started feeling the baby. It feels much stronger already than it did with my son, so I'm hoping that maybe I don't have an anterior placenta this time. I've only gained 3 pounds total, but I feel like that's about to start snowballing a bit.

 

Thoughts: Now that I finally look and feel pregnant, I'm finally able to find my excitement about being pregnant again. I'm feeling a little bummed at my mom right now though. She isn't coming to see the new baby until it's 6 weeks old. She took a baby nurse job in NYC (she's a baby nurse/travel nanny) the week that I'm due, and then she's traveling to Australia right after that. On the way back from Australia, she's meeting my dad and her Belgian cousins in Paris for 2 weeks. Then and only then, is she coming to see the new baby. I mean, I know these are high paying jobs and she loves to travel, and she's offered to stay at our place for however many weeks to help out when she finally get there, but...it kind of hurts my feelings that the baby will be like 6 weeks old by the time she gets back to the States. It's immature of me to whine and I know I should be grateful that she'll be able to help us out at all, but still...

 

For this week only-- Any New Year's resolutions/ reflections?

 

Trying to find more patience for my son this year as he advances through these crucial toddler years. Try to focus on being a better partner, better household manager. Oh, and really make a point of listening to my Hypnobabies tracks every day like I'm supposed to!

I'm off to my 20w anatomy scan! I'm so excited and nervous I can't stand it!!!

post #53 of 80

Woohoo have fun hollyann!!

post #54 of 80

Can't wait to hear details Hollyann! Best wishes and enjoy!

post #55 of 80

Just got home from work and am sitting here waiting for Hollyann to update orngtongue.gif

 

Casmer, I am glad that your scan went well -- congrats on your baby GIRL!

post #56 of 80

Casmer, congratulations on a daughter.

I'm 22 weeks-ish pregnant and all of a sudden I can feel the baby move all the time. Today for instance baby woke me up by kicking  my bladder. I was like "Whats that? Oh, wow"

I'm wondering if the craptastic diet I've been scarfing the last few days has any thing to do with it. lol

Holyann- Will check back in :)

I've been feeling a TON of movement at 23 weeks. Lots of fun. With DS I had an anterior placenta so didn't feel much for a long time. Loving this.

 

I don't even want to think about what I've been hoovering up. Craptastic is a good word for it, Onemore! I'm thinking of writing a book called The Craptastic Pregnancy Diet.

post #58 of 80
