I have had this sensation as well. I believe I described it to DH as "tap dancing on my cervix," LOL. I hope she turns head down eventually... I have been halfheartedly doing the inversions and pelvic tilts, but I probably need to get serious about it. Still, it's early from what I hear.

i don't have any little ones to take care of, but i'm defiantly feeling more exhuausted. i felt like i could sleep all morning today and baby is moving around like crazy these last two days, like almost non-stop the whole day. normally its a bit here, then rest, then again, repeat. but theres constant movement now. i'm also a lot more hunger sensetive. i was kneading bread this morning and all of the sudden had to lay down or i felt like i was going to pass out/be sick. my husband made me a grilled cheese and i'm starting to feel better but i'm still on the couch. i'm also seeing stars more too, when i get up too fast, or move quickly.

I get both of these very bad in pregnancy. Luckily, it seems to be a sign of low blood pressure for me (the stars that is) and happens especially if I strain my neck to see something (shaving arm pits, or trying to look behind me without turning around)

I had so much energy for a while there, but I'm starting to get tired more easily again now, too. I'm also having this really weird sensation of being able to hear the blood rushing though my veins sometimes. It's only every now and then, but it's really trippy when it happens.

this might to TMI ...but i've been battling with yeast infections for a bit and i finally got back on track, but then this last week i went right back to square one again. i've started taking ACV everyday and my mum got me hooked on kefir and i definitely consume my share of homemade yogurt! so i'm really trying. last time the dr. got me to take a 1/2 dose of canesten which i really didn't feel good about, but i didn't really know what else to do. so this week, when i think that i'm starting to get one again i up my water intake, cut sugar and all that jazz. so last night just before bed, i go pee and its a dark reddy brown colour. i'm kind of stressed out already because i hate yeast infections, and i'm just plain uncomfortable. i get my lovely DH to look at it to see if he thinks is just concentrated or if its a blood tinted red. he assured me it was fine. so this morning i wake up and the same thing, only worse. i feel like i'm really trying to get healthy but nothings working, it just frustrates me. so, i decided to google it. anyway...i'm a complete goof. i baked beets for dinner last night and inhaled them. i completely didn't even think of that! but at least my mood has changed, and i don't feel so discouraged anymore! happy sunday! :)

That's funny! I eat a bunch of beets with a meal once and then the next day couldn't figure out why my urine was suddenly so dark. Ha. Took me a few hours to figure it out, too. 

 

It's been gorgeous here for the past couple of days, which is wonderful since it's been nothing but very cold and rainy for quite a while. It's still frosting at night, so it's not really that warm unless you're in the sun, but still. I'm starting to feel the spring creeping in. I was at the fabric store yesterday and all of the fabric I bought was in bright sky blues or yellows and oranges. I think the weather was affecting my fabric choices, which is kind of funny. 

 

I've been doing some major nesting all weekend, too. It feels awesome to get the place looking a little better and get rid of some old crappy things that I've never liked. That was just in the bedroom! I'm starting on sewing my diaper bag today. That's what I was buying all of that bright fabric for so it's extra nice to be looking at sky blue and birds while I'm inside doing this stuff.

 

I am so ready for my maternity leave to start so I can spend more time doing things like this before the baby comes. It looks like my contract might end at the end of May instead of the end of June so I'll be done with work a few weeks earlier than I had originally thought. While it stinks to miss out that many extra weeks of full pay, I'll be glad to get to spend that time at home relaxing and organizing and all of that before the baby comes.

I went shopping and bought clothes this morning. CLOTHES THAT FIT. I am not a shopper, but I am SO relieved to have some stuff that will look decent for the next few months. I bought things that I can wear postpartum too.

And.. biggest bra size ever. dude. 2nd time around, the milk factories are serious about this.
post #88 of 112

i'm so jealous about getting new clothes! i'm not a shopper, but i got called in to sub at the school today, and it really made me realize how little decent clothes i have. i think i'm going to live in skirts from now on. :) 

post #89 of 112

yes, on the skirts.  i know i will want shorts, though, and i don't have any...but i do have a bunch of pairs of pants so I will be wearing cut offs soon, lol.

 

and yes on the BIG bra sizes...this is my 3rd baby and I can't believe they are getting even bigger this time again WOW big boobs.  lol  It's so weird that they also wind up smaller than ever after each baby is done with them.

Don't think it is the biggest ever yet...I couldn't believe when I needed a G cup.  I am at a DDD right now and they are only going to get bigger.

I feel like everything is up top. My belly still isn't bigger than my breasts. Not that I want my belly to be bigger than it has to be, but the proportions are off.

I can't believe how big my breasts are getting, too. My maternity bras were starting to feel like torture devices so yesterday I finally went and bought a couple more. Turns out I need to go up a size and a cup size. Holy cow. I'm SO much more comfortable now, though. I also make sure not to get anything with underwires which I think was also part of where the pain was coming from. I've never had breasts this large before, it seems so crazy to me. They don't look all that large when I just look at them when I'm naked, but maybe that's because my belly is so big that it makes them look smaller or something? haha

 

DP and I start our childbirth classes next week. The first two weeks are 1 class a week for each of us in separate classes. This should be interesting. I tried to choose something that was a bit more crunchy and was recommended these by a good friend of ours so I'm hoping I'm not rolling my eyes and trying to find an escape route.

I'm wearing 40H today. 

I hate having a huge chest, even before I had kids and I was in the "healthy" range for my height... I had a HUGE chest (34DD for a 140lb, 5'8" woman)

Has anybody seen the hubbub about Alicia Silverstone "kiss-feeding" her son? I guess there was a post on Jezabel about it, along with a link to her YouTube video.

post #96 of 112

I understand why some people are all in a tiff... but those people are generally closedminded people who don't like to think of anyone doing anything a different way than they do.

Personally, I've done that myself a couple times. Not regularly... but a few times.

I am normally 34DD and 5'2" ~115lb. Right now, I'm only up to 36DD/DDD depending on the bra. They just feel so much heavier. I was 34/36 DDD before kids so I'm hoping to maybe get down to a single D after this one winky.gif. For my size, my body is hugely disproportional. I also have very small hips so it's not like I'm typically curvy. It's kind of a strange shape. When I was younger I thought it was so advantageous to have large breasts, but it's very annoying.

I have very large hips and very large breasts even when my mid section isn't large. I'm really hoping my weight loss after this baby gets them down to a decent size... but I've been seriously considering a breast reduction if not, since they're a large part of my back issues.

Me too, I've definitely got the hourglass "womanly" thing going on.  When I'm not pregnant or nursing and I'm a decent weight, I'm a 34-36 D/DD.  Before children I always wore C cups, not realizing I was actually a D.  I'm really, really, really hoping I magically shrink down to a C cup when I'm all done nursing.  My hips never really went back in all the way after having my first, so I don't imagine they will anymore.  I measured myself today, just to see where I technically am.  I had a little less than 36" chest and a 44" inch breast.  So, that puts me at a 36H.  But, my 38DDD is fitting well, so I will go with it for now.  It just stinks to only have one or two bras that fit at any given time.  That will be something I enjoy once I'm not with having kids and nursing.

 

Regarding the "kiss-feeding" - I think it's odd that people think it's weird.  I don't do it regularly, but I have done it.  And I'd much rather do that then feed my kids most baby foods - that stuff tastes nasty.  Even the organics usually do.

I envy those of you with breasts that are growing. I'm normally a 38G and in past pregnancies have gotten much larger and fuller but mine still seem the same so far. A little fuller, maybe, and I've had very sore nipples all pregnancy but I'm not feeling those changes this time and it makes me nervous that I'm going to have issues. I've read that it can sometimes be an issue for women with diabetes, but my OB has said she hasn't ever seen that to be the case. I scheduled an appointment with the lactation consultant who works at her office and the hospital we're delivering at (also have heard that they may try to supplement with formula at birth for babies of diabetic mothers so we're getting her help with advocating for the baby) but it would just be nice to feel my body getting ready to support this babe, especially with the added worry of being an older mother. My poor dried up old breasts, haha.
