weekly chat april 23-29 - Page 4

post #61 of 84

I'm so bad about posting on the weekly chats.  I want to respond to what's going on with everyone else, and then I never manage to actually complete and hit post...  So, I'm just writing about me for now.

 

Last week we spent lots of time at home as the kids took turns with a mild flu.  I've settled into a good school routine with DD1 (and DD2 who insists on "doing school work" too).  We clean out the study and have it all neatly set up for  school, which makes a huge difference.  DH cleaned out our pantry, and now I smile every time I open it love.gif  It's amazing how big of a difference clearing things out can make.

 

Wednesday we did a 20 week ultrasound.  DH took the day off of work, and we all went.  Everything looks good.  Baby is measuring a few days ahead, and was transverse.  I have an anterior placenta, which would probably explain why DH can't feel kicks yet, but I definitely can.  The fun news is IT'S A GIRL!!! jaw.gif  I'm totally shocked.  I was sure she was a boy, and it's the first time I've been wrong with one of the pregnancies.  I went in thinking that I've never seen a boy ultrasound first hand, and was totally shocked when she said girl.  She triple checked from multiple angles when I told her I had been sure this was a boy, so I'm feeling pretty certain about it.  As the shock is wearing off, I'm getting really excited about a houseful of little girls.  My girls are so bonded, and I think another sister will be wonderful.  And she'll get to wear all of the sweat hand-me-downs from the big girls, and with another 3 year age gap, I bet DD2 and DD3 (first time I've typed that!) will get to wear some of the matching/coordinating outfits DD1 and DD2 have worn.  It'll be much easier with room sharing over the years, and with lots of hand-me-downs waiting, we'll save plenty of money not creating new wardrobes in each size - though I know we'll buy some things for this baby too.

 

Yesterday I was supposed to have a midwife appointment at 1:30 and a PP doula interview at 7, but due to births, I had a midwife appointment at 5 and no interview lol.gif.  DH got some less than stellar year end news at work last week, so I don't think we'll have the funds for a PP doula anyway. 

 

Otherwise things are going well.  I'm up 8.5lbs at 19wks.  I'll have to search for that chart.  I hadn't seen it.  I'm definitely looking pregnant.  Random people ask me when I'm due, but I don't feel like I'm putting on weight other places.  I'm having trouble with fully emptying my bladder too.  I shift positions several times while peeing eyesroll.gif, and while I'm not dealing with constipation, things are very slow.  I'm increasingly uncomfortable lying on my back these days, which is sometimes frustrating.  Sex is already getting a bit awkward with positions I'm comfortable in, and my breasts are increasingly sensitive, which isn't always a good thing.  It does look like DD2 has pretty much weaned.  Nursing has been super painful for me, and only getting worse, so I'm pretty happy about it.  Now she often asks for DH to snuggle with her in her bed to fall asleep, which I think will be an awesome transition.

So much to respond to, but I'll do that later on a real computer (just on my phone right now), but I saw this link and I know somebody wanted a non-alcoholic sangria recipe!! When I saw this, I knew I had to link right away! http://www.thekitchn.com/drink-recipe-non-alcoholic-sangriarecipes-from-the-kitchn-170254

The midwives are so focused on making sure we are able to get the birthing experience we want, and today she was giving us hints like "I know you prefer not to use the doppler and when you are birthing in the pool we use the doppler by default, so just make sure that if I'm not the person on duty when you are giving birth you remind the midwife on duty you want to use the stethoscope instead so that she checks the heartbeat the way you want her to." At every point they want to make sure it is how my sweetheart and I want it to be. She was able to hear the fetus's heartbeat today with the wooden stethoscope! My sweetheart couldn't hear it yet, but hopefully at our next appointment in 4 weeks. I have gained 5.2 kg! I was shocked at the number, but when I looked it up on the chart someone posted above (thanks!) 5.2 kg at 22 weeks is right in between "normal" and "less than normal"- so right on target! My fundus was 21 cm, right on the idealized line. I'm so happy and lucky to be healthy and having a healthy pregnancy. Now I am off to my lunch time yoga class which counts as working time! Another advantage of living in Norway :).

 

Excellent prenatal care is *soooooo* important!  I'm so glad you have a fabulous system in place!  I adore my midwife as well :)

so, there's been one stressor off and on, and i don't know if it's a pregnancy thing or just a woman thing. i haven't had a scale since i moved out of my parents' house at age 16, but now i'm weighing myself once a week at my in-law's so i can report back to my midwife, and the FLUCTUATIONS! we house-sit for them when they often go out of town, and the difference between 4 pm one day and 8 am the next is incredible. Yesterday I had a mild heart attack thinking I'd gained 4.5 pound this week, but this morning I'm down to just half a pound above what I was a week ago. of course, i've been reading a good bit about epigenetics and how what the mother does while pregnant affects the baby for the rest of its life, which doesn't help my nerves. most of my habits are lined up fine, but the weight thing is the only one that's been bothering me, partially out of vanity, i'll admit, but partially, too, for the reasons of my health and (as my husband calls it) the rutabaga's. my mother is heavy, as are all of her siblings, and i watch them all developing heart disease and diabetes and needing hip replacements. i don't want that!


i know it's a runaway train of worry, but we all know how pregnancy tends to make that happen.  

 

and my new cravings for chocolate glazed donuts and buttered cinnamon raisin bagels (neither of which i really cared for five months ago) don't help. 

 

My favorite pattern for a newborn diaper is the Darling Diapers newborn pattern.  It used to be available as a free download from the site, but that was years ago that I got it ;)  I have other various favorites for various styles/times of baby's life... for newborns I like fitteds and covers (because I like two lines of protection against explosive newborn poos ;) ), for smalls, I still like fitteds and covers, and then for mediums I usually am pretty lazy by that point and go with pockets!  Two of my favorite patterns are the Fattycakes diaper pattern (super cheap too... wonderful, long fit and economical! I use it for fitteds and for pockets) and the front snapping and/or the side-snapping pattern from Little Comet Tails... but I think the sizing runs a bit smaller than the Fattycakes.  But it has great, detailed instructions.

As for weighing, I never was one to weigh myself for years because there wasn't a scale in my house growing up and I never had one either... but when I decided I needed to lose some weight, MIL had one at her house I'd weigh myself on.. and then when I started going to the gym, there's one in there that I would use.  It's amazing how much weight fluctuates in a day!  Truly!  That's why, if I had a scale here I would only, a) weigh myself first thing in the morning... or... even better... b) once a week.  Any more than once a week is highly unnecessary anyway.  Things you eat in a day really can make things seem extreme one way or the other, but weight really isn't a static thing anyway.  (and... ftr... my caveat is ice cream.... ice cream with LOTS of caramel....)

Kicks down low suggesting where the baby is- She said you can't really know that the baby is mostly feet down just because all the strong movements I feel are down low. She said she can tell from the shape of my uterus that the fetus is not spending most of its time transverse, but other than that, it has lots of room to move around right now and can swim around however it likes.

 

Good point about baby's position... all I really know for sure about my baby is that he/she is not transverse ;)

I love having a gaggle of girls :)  For hand-me-downs it's completely ideal (except I have a mother that LOVES buying clothes for my girls... like... we are seriously swimming in girls' clothing of all sizes from 16 on down... I could open up a second-hand shop and STILL have plenty of clothes for my girls to wear... ).  For room-sharing, it's also fabulous!  We have just two bedrooms on our main level.  For years, the older three shared a room (one twin bed, one set of twin bunk beds), but just last month dd1 (who turned 10) decided she wanted her own room, so she moved to a room in the basement after we painted it pink and got it all dolled up ;)  Now, some bed-shifting occured and dd4 starts out the night in there before eventually coming to bed with us.  .... ... Let me also add that I'm jealous of your dd weaning.  I always feel terrible saying that, but lately nursing is so painful to me and I'd like to have my body *almost* as my own for maybe just a *few* months... But on the flip-side, I couldn't actively take that away from dd4 without her having some say in things (and if she could have her way, she'd have 24/7 access to me, I swear... ).

 

...

 

AFM, I'm home all alone.  My mom took my four girls to see my grandma (so, my girls' great-grandma) in a town just 90 miles to the south for lunch and hanging out.  I feel like there's so much I should/could get done (because seriously... how many times a day do I say, "If only I had some time all to myself, I could do xyz....!"?), but at the same time, a nap ALONE sounds really appealing.... we'll see what wins....

 

post #65 of 84

Just got back from my midwife appointment and everything looks/sounds good. I'm always a nervous wreck the 24-48 hrs before hand. I'm 20w1d and have been feeling little nudges here and there for several weeks but it has been very sporadic until the last few days and I know I felt more last time so it is such a relief to finally start feeling things semi-consistently. 

 

I've been having a lot of hip pain this time around too. I saw a chiropractor on Monday and that helped a lot but it is already returning. She said since it was my first adjustment, I might not make it a full 4 weeks before wanting to come back and I think she is right. Luckily she works out of her home so she isn't expensive and it fine for me to take DD along. It would be hard to find the time if I had to get a babysitter or try and schedule appt when my husband is off. But I've been having to sleep on my back to or I wake up from the pain. I try and lay at an angle with pillows too so my belly isn't right on top of me but it isn't uncomfortable so I feel fairly safe about it. 

 

I'm glad to hear someone else mention RRL tea. I drank it from the second trimester on with DD but my midwife mentioned today she likes women to wait until their third trimester. I saw her with DD too so maybe I just didn't think to mention it then? I'm now drinking gallons and from what I've heard it is perfectly safe in the second trimester so I think I will continue to drink a glass every day (or every other day because I'm horrible inconsistent about things like that :-) but has anyone else's doc/mw seemed concerned?

 

Overall, I just keep getting the feeling (from various sources, not really my mw except for RRL) that I'm doing all these dangerous things. My preg app told me a few weeks ago I should be taking the temperature of my shower water! What the heck, who has time to do that? I would never get a shower. And DD and I split a dairy queen blizzard earlier this week while we had an hour to kill outside DH work and it wasn't until afterwords that I remembered it was soft serve ice cream...oops. I feel like I'm cautious and haven't even taken any drugs even with this horrible cold that is keeping me up at night because I want to err on the side of caution but sometimes it all just seems a bit excessive. 

 

 

post #66 of 84
Umm... what's wrong with soft serve ice cream? ... And I don't take the temperature of my shower. I do like hot showers, but I wouldn't stay in until I'm too hot. I just figure my body will know.

My midwife encourages RRL tea, especially in the second/third trimesters.

Exactly. I'm not saying I want to spend all weekend getting drunk and sitting in hot tubs but whatever happened to a little common sense? A warm shower feels so good on my hurting back and hips and I have never gotten out of a shower thinking about how overheated I feel. Soft serve supposedly has a risk of listeria but everything has some risks. Having said that I probably won't have any more just because trying to eat something with thoughts of listeria running around your head takes all the fun out of it.

 

 I think I just needed to vent here because sometimes if I voice my frustration over the growing list of things us preggos, I get looks from people that read "You care more about ice cream than the lift of your unborn child?" It is just nice to have a place to say that you still sleep on your back or you enjoy a glass of wine with dinner every once in a while (well, I don't, I can't stand the taste of wine but you get the picture smile.gif

To a lot of people, pregnant women are a great target for great advice. My MIL has finally stopped telling me what to do or what not to do. Maybe it's also because I don't talk about a bunch of things anymore. I looove warm baths and I usually like my water HOT, like steamy hot. It just doesn't feel good right now, so I don't do it. I do have soft serve icecreams though, and blizzards, and shakes etc...Perfectly fine.

 

I just popped in here to say: MY FRIEND HAD HER BABY TODAY, 3rd boy. She was 41 weeks and 5 days along and the little boy was only a little over 7lbs, he needed every extra day. She had him via planned UC, her husband caught the baby. Her husband is a doctor who - guess what, guess what - LOVES to do c/s. I believe he's a family doc but with c/s privileges. I have seen the video of her second boy's birth and he was all doctor, while she was telling him to stay calm LOL. They are total opposite when it comes to medicine but they make beautiful little babies.

I'm going to post this over in another thread too but I just saw a message from a friend n facebook: "cautionary tale to pregnant ladies! My friend had a baby boy today and is bringing him home to a pink nursery. Ultrasounds aren't always right!" Can you imagine??

I have a friend that had the nursery all set for a girl also, and then 38 weeks, baby was breech, they did a version to confirm, and sure enough - boy.  She was crushed.  I mean - she wanted a healthy baby more than anything.  But after being so excited for and planning for a little girl, she was just heartbroken.  She has a miscarriage or 2 after that baby also.  But now she's over 21 weeks with a healthy girl (a few u/s have confirmed!)  :-)

Dh's cousin and his wife had that happen. But they were told boy... and 'he' was a girl!! (And they are pretty well off and had quite a lavish nursery set up)!
post #73 of 84

I ate ridiculous amounts of soft serve ice cream while pregnant with DD2.. literally chasing the ice cream man down the street daily.  I had no idea they had added that to the absurd "warnings" list!

 

 

And on the topic of sugar, I have a stupid yeast infection.  It's pretty bad actually.. I'm allergic to monistat so I usually just use Nystatin (what they give you for nipple thrush) and it goes away.  It is SO bad this time.. I called the midwives last night (and thankfully it was the sweetest one!) and she called in a prescription for diflucan.  It always does the trick for me, and I feel I've exhausted all of my options.  She wants me to do two back to back doses, though, with another dose a week later if things haven't improved enough.  I'm not sure I need that much..

 

AND happy 20wks to me!

This was my first thought when the tech said "girl" and I was sure this was a boy lol.gif  Generally you hear it the other way with a boy thought to be a girl based on what they didn't see.  I'm pretty sure with us, we had a good clear view from several angles, and it was a pretty clear vulva not penis.

 

Besides a few girly clothes and a name, we're not doing anything different for a girl, so I'm not too worried regardless.  I won't be buying a pink car seat, or setting up a nursery, much less a girly one.

 

Magnolia Maye is growing on me, and DH too.  I think we're pretty close to settled on it.  It's really neat to think about three little girls running around together.  I'm getting more and more excited about a little troop of girls love.gif

I liked hearing this, it made me laugh, picturing the laboring woman telling the professional Dr husband to calm down.  winky.gif  Congrats to your friend!

 

Gender: This is the first time we are considering finding out the gender ahead of time...these stories bum me out!  But, it's good to be aware going in that that could be the case...

 

AFM, something else that bums me out is how, what's the right word, "unmagical" the third pregnancy is, compared with the first, and even the second.  NOT that I will feel differently about this child than I did about the others, but there are some days when even I almost forget I am pregnant!  I just don't have the time to remember, I think!  (chasing a 2 1/2 y.o. and a 1 1/2 y.o., starting a part time job, building a house, packing up the one we're in, trying to get in something of a garden...yes, very busy these days.)  Also, first pregnancy, I was barely allowed to move my own chair at a table; this time around, my husband asked me to get a box of something down from the garage rafters while I was heading out there.  !!  (He's not a jerk, quite the opposite, actually; he just remembers less than I do that we're pregnant, I think.  Or, maybe it's going faster and I'm further along than he realizes when he's asking me to do that?)  Anyway, is anyone else experiencing this?

Ah... subsequent pregnancies certainly *do* take on a very different feeling!!  With dd1, I probably wasn't *super* cautious and I don't know if dh or I really knew what the heck to expect... but I remember with dd2, having dh (and me too, honestly), concerned with picking up dd1 and such, so he would always carry her.

 

Um... now with this baby #5, I still take out all the trash to the dumpster behind the house, I clean, I carry dd4 all the time, I've raked the yard, I've carted my (quite heavy) sewing machine and serger up and down the stairs, I haul 50 bazillion loads of laundry up and down the stairs about a bazillion times a day (it feels like!), etc, etc.

 

But, on the other hand, one of the more beautiful things about subsequent pregnancies is the ability to let go more. I don't worry over everything (well... to some degree... experiencing a loss before this pregnancy really changed everything for me).  I feel I trust my body so much more to inherently *know* what it needs (like, sleep positions, which have been a topic even just this week on this thread!).  I feel more empowered with what I am doing -- I know I am strong, I know I am capable, I know I can do so much... yet... if I need help or feel I really shouldn't do something, I'm not afraid to ask for help or remind others of the miracle I'm currently working on ;).  Even though I get quite wrapped up in so many goings-on during the days with my four girls, I still revel and cherish each and every little kick that I'm aware of.  I know exactly what I'm doing and I can see various stages of that result already on the outside and it Blows. My. Mind.  This little person growing inside my womb is really going to be a unique person that will be wild and hilarious and full of a zest for life just like the two-year-old... that this little baby the size of a banana will grow to have his/her own sense of style, of quirkiness just like my six-year-old.  That this little person, with such a tiny heart right now, will grow to be as kind and generous and all-giving as my eight-year-old.  And that this 10.5" baby will grow to be like my 5'2" ten-year-old that carries herself with poise and such a loving heart.

 

And even better?  This baby will be nothing like his/her sisters -- or everything like them!  My girls are all so amazingly different, yet share so many wonderful traits!

 

and.. yeah... that was a pep-talk for me just as much.  Some days it's hard to realize I hardly even thought of this baby during the entire day because somebody else was always needing my attention for food, hugs, butt-wiping, mediating, etc.  So I try to capture even the smallest of moments and revel in them.

ok soooo does anybody elses feet/ankles/legs hurt so bad????  at the end of the day "especially after i have to work...im a cashier and stand for several hours in one place" my ankles and feet and knees hurt so bad, i actually just tried to soak my feet and ankles in ice water but the bucket wasnt big enough to put my foot in flat and my ankles didnt really get to soak :( isnt it a bit early for swollen ankle pain???

post #78 of 84

Oh SilverMoonMama! You have a really hard job for a pregnant body. Is it possible for you to sit on a stool instead of standing while working the cash register? (That is how cashiers work in Scandinavia). If that is not an option, can you get a small foot stool so as you stand one foot is raised, then you can switch feet? I hope you can find a solution that causes you less pain.

post #79 of 84

I am late into this thread this week.  My laptop has been on the fritz and I have been on my phone.

 

Silvermoon - When I worked retail with both my previous pregnancies, I found that good shoes where super important to how my feet and legs felt after a shift.  I found that crocs (I KNOW, they are super ugly!) worked really well for me and helped a ton.  I am also tried to make sure that when I took my break that I put my feet up for most of it.  

 

AFM -  We are just chugging along.  Nothing really too exciting going on.  I have been feeling more movement which is reassuring for me since baby hates for me to hear it in the doppler when I have an appointment.  I have a crazy week ahead, Monday I see my midwife, Wednesday I have my first Chiro appointment and Friday my 20 week ultrasound.  Plus I have to work in there too.  I am tired already.

post #80 of 84

oof. spent the morning moving from my apartment into SO's ( i need to come up with a better term for him that SO- maybe babydaddy will work) house.

 

granted, my friends did the heavy lifting, all i did was boxes and trash bags, but all those stair trips- oh my god my back hurts. doesn't help that i had a terrible time sleeping last night and the night before!

 

i'm so worn out right now, sitting here looking around at these boxes... and my sister comes to visit tomorrow AND i have to finish moving AND work all week AND AND AND

 

i just have to keep reminding myself to take it easy, don't do too much, stop and drink some water, etc. at least ( hopefully!) sleeping tonight won't be a problem orngtongue.gif
