The AWESOME ONE Thread - March/April 2012

post #1 of 121
Thread Starter 

This thread is for members of the ONE thread from the Trying to Conceive forum. Some of you have started similar threads in the DDCs but this is an all-inclusive, cross-DDC thread. We have all made connections and friendships with ladies who got BFPs before or after us so this can be a central thread for us to catch up and for those on the other side of the One thread to keep up with us!

 

In bold, please tell me: Name, Due Date, how long it took you to conceive and what you went through to conceive, what "number" child this will be, and anything else you would like to add.

See guys...I warned you...Worst.Threadkeeper.Ever.

 

So it's a week late but here is the new March thread!

 

We need to send some goodvibes.gif to the ONE Thread in TTC because those poor ladies didn't have one February BFP.

Andthestars- Yes we do! Thanks for starting the thread.

Thanks for the new thread!

 

I'm thirty five weeks today and have now reached the really uncomfortable stage. It took me hours to get into a comfortable enough position to get to sleep last night. Also, I am apparently allergic to something in my house because I broke out into an intensely itchy rash on my face, hands and feet. The midwife thought it could be cholestasis but that doesn't seem to really fit. I have an appointment today so hopefully we can figure it out.

post #6 of 121

belacmsage--that sounds really crappy--I hope they can get that itching figured out for you. My SIL had PUPPS (I believe) and was miserable for weeks.  greensad.gif

 

AFM I am having some issues getting comfortable at night myself--it feels like as soon as I finally find a position where I can doze off, one of the cats wakes me up. I feel like I'm waking up all night long. I'm sure it's nothing compared to later in pregnancy, though. I really think the main problem is that my body pillow takes up a lot of space, so I'm very conscious of not moving around much so as not to accidentally punch DH or invade his space or something, and then I feel "constricted" and uncomfortable and sleep lightly. So really it's all in my head at this point. Guess I should try to get over that before I'm truly uncomfortable later on, and actually can't sleep. smile.gif

Hi everyone!  

 

In two days I will be 20 weeks pregnant.  Halfway!  Probably more than halfway because I don't think the OB/MW will let me go long due to my many risk factors.

 

Can I just say...... THANK. THE. LORD.  I am not a good pregnant person.  This has been an incredibly long 4ish months.

 

And...... it looks like I'll be off the Zofran pump in 10-days to 2-weeks!!!  Fingers crossed that I continue to feel ok without it.

 

 

Happy March to all!

Does that mean you are feeling somewhat better, Belia? Great news!

post #9 of 121
Thread Starter 

Belia, that's great news!  Is the 10-14 days to wean you off?

 

scowgirl, not sleeping well is one of my biggest pregnancy pet peeves.  You get so little sleep afterwards that it seems totally unfair not to be able to sleep when you have the opportunity.  If I were you, I'd kick DH out of bed or go sleep in another bed (if you have one) and just get some rest!  DS turned out to be a super crappy sleeper so I haven't had more than a 4-5 hour stretch of sleep in 3 years.  If I knew that was going to be the deal when I was pregnant, you can bet that DH would have been sleeping in the guest room from 20 weeks on.  I would also advise purchasing a king sized bed.  I know they're a lot of money but its the best money DH and I ever spent.  We didn't get one until DS was 9 months old so the first nine months in a double bed with me, DH, DS and two cats was just stupid looking back on it.  Anyway, that was a super long digression when what I really wanted to tell you was, I feel for you and you shouldn't be afraid to do whatever you have to to get some sleep now!

 

AFM, I'm going on a trip next weeked with two girlfriends.  We used to travel every year together before DS came along.  This will be the first time I've ever been away from him.  I'm so nervous but really looking forward to some me time and some sleep!  So fair warning that I will be gone for 5 days and will continue to be the world's worst threadkeeper.  But maybe this is exactly what they need over on the ONE Thread to get some BFP's.  It will figure that I would be (happily) called into service when I'm not around.

 

Any birth updates that anyone knows about from WritingLove, OdinsMommy or Tantylynn?

 

Maybe I will stalk all the MIA mamas and post updates later.  You know, in my spare time.

post #10 of 121

Thanks for the well wishes, everybody.  Yes, I am feeling better.  Not really good, but definitely better.  I can eat a lot of different things now (at least, compared to what I was eating) even though I'm still kind of weird about food, and I only get sick about once a week.  Usually if I go too long between snacks.

 

And I've been in the process of weaning slowly off the Zofran pump already.  At my highest dose I was .72, and I've gradually stepped my way down to .42.  They want me to lower my dose every other day, but I'm doing every 5-7 days instead.  I don't want to push it.  And I'm still on some oral meds to help keep the edge off, too.  That;s why I have about 10 days left- I have to lower the dose 2 more times before I'm off the pump completely.

 

Next week is the ultrasound- fingers crossed that everything looks OK.  I have a bad feeling for some reason.  Probably just my general bad feeling about this entire pregnancy!  But all of my baby-related planning is completely on hold until after that ultrasound.

 

Do you have any idea how utterly PISSED I will be if something goes wrong at this point of the process?  I've been miserable and non-functioning for months now.  If anything goes wrong now that I'm finally starting to feel better..... yes, I will be sad, yes I will be devastated, but HELL YES I will be pissed!!!!!  angry.gif  Hope that's not too sacreligious of a thought for you all.

post #11 of 121

Belia, that sounds like great improvement!

 

When Stephanie decides to have a growth spurt, she doesn't mess around! Today is Day Three of Power Nursing! I've lost 4 pounds... and I'm eating like crazy to keep up with her, too. She rolls over instantly when I try and do tummy time with her. I just keep flopping her back onto her tummy, she thinks it's funny... so do the big kids if I say "Stop that! Bad baby! It's tummy time, stay on your tummy! No no! She rolled over again, oh no! She's driving me koo-koo!" They all giggle at that. 

post #12 of 121

Belia- I'm glad you're feeling better and I don't blame you for being cautious. LOL I have a completely "lame" pregnancy and was still nervous every single time I went to the doctor.

 

Conner had his 4-month check-up last Tuesday. My nice 8lb2oz newborn only weighs 12lbs4oz now, LOL. Skinny minny. He's grown 5 1/4" though, so he's going to be tall and skinny like his daddy. It's so crazy watching him learn. He can grab stuff now and I LOVE watching the concentration on his face whenever he goes to grab something, LOL. It takes so.much.work.

 

A girl at my work had a son 5 days before I had Conner and told me yesterday that she "wouldn't be upset" if she got pregnant again like... Now. *GASP* Yeah, right.

Belia, I think everything will be fine.  It's totally ok to feel however it is you feel.  But I'll think postively for you. 

 

Here's my first belly pic from last week , I'm such a slacker.

Yes, my belly is the hugest thing ever.  I'm going to have an enormous kid at this rate.  Or I'm just getting fat.  Which is what I'd prefer at this point.

You look awesome! So cute!

post #15 of 121

post #16 of 121

Hello hello!  31 weeks over here... I get another ultrasound on the 19th so I am just waiting around until then when I get to see my little boy again :)  Super excited!  I am getting reeeaaallly uncomfortable with everything these days.  I can't believe I could still have another couple months, as I feel huge and uncomfortable all the time.  I think I am going to quit working in 2 more weeks (I do massage).  It is getting kinda hard to do it anymore... I like the extra money but I am so exhausted every time I go in to work.  At this point I am only doing about 6 massages per week, so it isn't a big change anyway.

 

Had my baby shower a few weeks ago and since then we have been buying all our stuff like crazy!  My nursery isn't quite done yet, but it's getting close.  It is looking SO freaking adorable!!  I can't wait to show it off once it's done, hubby won't let me show anyone until it is (weirdo). 

 

I think he thinks it will be longer than it could be, he keeps saying we have 2 months left every week, but I keep reminding him it could be less than that, or more, no way to tell!  A good friend of ours was pregnant just before me, with her first like me, and delivered at 37 weeks, so I keep reminding him we need to have everything ready before then just in case!  Yes, I will probably go longer than that, but I certainly don't want to be unprepared when that date rolls around...

 

Andthestars - cute belly pic :)

 

CDsmom - I hope my baby is small, too.. I fear he will be ginormous, though!!

AndtheStars- You are adorable!  But I will admit that I GULPED when I looked at your siggy and saw that you're only 20-something weeks. You sure there's only 1 in there?!? winky.gif
