lalazap- awesome for feeling better with chiro, it seems to work wonders.
thomatuttle- wohoo for mucus plugs! I hope babe stays in until your support people are ready though :)
chiro- bummer about the new mw/new person at birth but yay for natural progress and getting ready for labor!
day- can't look back but I think you were the one who was sad about your first stretch marks? I sympathize completely. With my first pg I made it until 36 weeks with no stretch marks and when one came, it seemed like quite a few followed around my belly button. I felt so vain for how distraught I got but I felt like it was completely normal to need to mourn that my body would be forever changed by my little one. I will say, they do not bother me as much now and that they definitely do fade more and more over time. I think I am getting a few extra now with this pg and it is a completely different feeling...like I just think "bummer" and move on. Hope you feel better soon about it and hugs.
isa- I remember being really sensitive with a vaginal check, or dtd, when pg with DS and it was a completely different feeling in labor and him coming out, I don't think it made me more sensitive at all.
itsasecret- I hope your bp comes back to normal very soon!
aletheia- hope you get stuff done! I have finished my "has to get done" list but I keep finding more things that I want to get done. So I guess it is all really done once the baby comes lol. Oh and I am very sorry about your kitty, that is very sad :(
ruby- I am sorry, that sounds really rough. I really hope things settle down for you soon.
Thursday- your poop talk made me actually laugh out loud but not at you, just in the way that you put it. I am sorry that people are not helping get stuff straight around your house, that is hard.
Had my mw appointment today. I am GBS negative hooray! I am a little down because I am measuring 3 weeks behind and only gained a pound in the past few weeks. My mw was not concerned and just told me to increase my protein and calorie intake. Honestly, I have been eating as much as I can but have not had as much appetite lately. I am going to try to add in some smoothies. DD has dropped so that might be part of the reason why I am measuring behind. My mw said that DD's head is on the larger side too so she really isn't worried. I just felt kind of bummed because I only want to hear "everything is perfect" you know? Anyone else measuring behind?
I am feeling good, my sister came in last night and is doing a great job entertaining DS and giving me breaks to rest. It means that my house is cleaner too which is awesome. My mother's blessing is this saturday and one of my other sister's is flying in for it so it would be a great time to have a baby but I am feeling really content being pg and just waiting. I like it because it is such a huge contrast to how I felt right now with DS. I attribute a lot of it to going regularly to chiro and I am so thankful that is an option this time around when it wasn't last time.
