My sister is a lurker here as well, she also really likes our DDC, as do I! I'm so glad I get to go through this with you ladies. I'm with everyone else in that I hope we all stay in touch as our LO's grow. I lurked in my sister's DDC for her now 3yo (at her request, she's been trying to get a niece or nephew for a while now), and they have transferred their group from a DDC, to baby, to toddler, and now to a childhood thread. They just had one of those great combinations of individuals that meshed really well.
Intime, congrats again on your little boy! What a blessing that he is doing so well for such a little guy!
Penny, congrats on the 3rd trimester and good luck on your glucose test. I'm sorry that you had to deal with that kind of disconnect from your OB, but happy you have a better option now! I am a day behind you. It does feel like such an accomplishment, and it feels like it came quickly. Although, I've got to be honest, I thought the first four months would never pass, they were so tough!
LeAnn, I hope that you are feeling better. It does sound like you may have overdone it and that a couple of days rest should help. I hope you're continuing to mend.
Liz, I feel you...not so many issues with the sneeze-pee, but B has gotten plenty of laughs from my puke-pee incidents, particularly in the apartment when we only had one bathroom and he would walk out to me holding a plastic bag and yelling at him for taking too long. Fun times, being pregnant!
Sol, hope you're enjoying all the nesting and planning and keeping your energy up enough to get through it all!
Poppy, I'm so sorry for your tough and emotional week. I'm glad you're starting to feel a little better about everything.
Ithappened, I hope you find all the energy you need to work through your to-do list.
Lakeruby and Boots, so glad your results came back fine!
NewMum, I'm totally with you on the feeling somewhat prepared just because of a willingness to kind of go with the flow of the birth, but unprepared for what follows, you know, having a little human...I keep trying to prepare myself for that part, but it seems SO unreal at this point. I just don't think I can comprehend it. I wish I was close to my sister so I could "observe" her with my little niece. I spent the first 3 days of my niece Coraline's life trying to picture myself as the mother to try and prepare myself for what was to come...I don't think it was successful. I'm glad that your mom is heading out to visit. The fact that my mother will be here in July is really comforting for me as well, I'm just hoping the reality matches the fantasy, since my mom requires a lot of attention.
Sarah, I'm sorry about your iron levels, but it is good that you're feeling well. I hope that it is just temporary due to increased blood volume like a couple of people mentioned. I know my sister was having issues with her iron levels and she was having to split up eating, I think, iron and calcium (totally can't remember what she was carefully not eating together) in order to get maximum iron absorption. [Thursday, if you're lurking feel free to jump in and correct me here].
Chotchkes, I'm sorry you're feeling such anxiety about Z facing the wrong way. Have you tried any of the options to help turn her around? And so sweet about R being so loving and concerned. I hope this all works itself out. I'm sending spinny baby vibes your way.
Andaluza, good luck at your appointment. I'm glad you've figured out a way to get some snuggle time with your DH. Between my belly and my body pillow, that is one thing I'm really missing.
AFM, I randomly met another 28 weeks preggers lady in the locker room at the Y after my swim yesterday. I was running late for my first Bradley class, so I didn't catch her name, but she and her DH are very active like B and I, so we chatted for a minute and hopefully we run into each other at the gym again. It is also great motivation for me to make it to the gym after work. Now that I'm done with the CPA exam (no word on my score yet) I'm hoping I can meet some people. The first Bradley class went well too. The other 7 couples all seem very nice, as is the instructor, so it should be a very informative and enjoyable 12 weeks, and when it is all done, I will be ready to pop!
