11 weeks here-nausea has lessened, and  my weight has also redistributed so I look like i'm showing when my uterus is barely poking up :) I'm trying to stay active and drink a lot of water as it is getting hotter here.....

post #62 of 94

So happy to hear some of you say that you are feeling a little better at 11 weeks.  I am 8 weeks and moving in two weeks Ahh!  I can't even pack I just lay around looking at everything.  I am glad it is taking a long time here to get nice out because the heat is soo making me sick.   How is the heat for those of you that are not in morning sickness anymore.  Does the heat get easier?

Oh I can't handle the heat worth a darn :) I just do my running about in the early morning or evening. I also hydrate and stay in the ac!

I am at 12 weeks tomorrow and I am starting to feel much better, I am only sick in the late evenings and mostly that is only if I don't get a nap. I still really need my nap everyday, i wonder how long needing a nap will last, I am not getting much done but I do enjoy it. On Saturday we went to Durango for the dinosaur train and had so much fun! It was the longest day ever though, after only 4 hours of sleep I drove 6 hours there, spent about 6 hours there and then drove another 6 hours home and had to take care of all the animals and such but it was worth it! I am not enjoying the heat we have at all right now, it was 103 yesterday and the weather says it will be like that for at least the next 5 days! Its not even July yet, usually July is the hottest month, I so am not looking forward to July if June is already this hot. The only good news is the farm stands are opening this weekend, so I am going to go get fresh peaches!

I finally have an appt tomorrow with my hospital based MW. I tried to go last week, but she had to go to a delivery (I was pretty miffed, I know she can't control when a momma needs her, but they didn't even call me before hand, I was already at her office waiting and lost a whole morning at work)

 

We have a HB consult with a cnm and her assistant who was my doula last time the 1st week in July. The consult got DH on board with the doula last time, I'm hoping it will work again with the HB.

 

I had a crazy dream! I was having a HB and everything went perfectly. I gave birth to a healthy full term cat. What do I make of that? lol

You will have a very fuzzy person! JK that's funny. We tend to have fuzzy babes here though for whatever that's worth.

 

My uterus was popped at my 6/7 weeks apt...can't imagine where it is now! My Dr was like, your uterus is nice and swollen :-)

Ugh, moving?! I couldn't imagine packing right now either, that sounds terrible!  I hope everything goes smoothly with your move though.

We picked a midwife for our HB last week, and I'm getting more and more excited :)  I was so freaked out/not ready when I found out I was pregnant 4 weeks ago, so it feels good to be excited finally.  DH and I also talked about the placenta last week and this week.  Encapsulation costs $200-$250 here, so I was mostly thinking I'd just use it "fresh"/frozen in smoothies or something.  DH was totally squigged out by that, and looked up encapsulation and said we should just do that instead.  Love it!  HB supporting, placenta encapsulating hubby, what more could I ask for?

 

Probably won't have my first official prenatal appointment with the midwife until 16 weeks, and then an appointment with the back-up OB at 17 or 18 weeks. Until then it's just me taking my vitamins and staying active and eating well!

We are going to do the encapsulation also, sounds dumb but I am so excited! I had really bad ppd last time so I really hope it helps with that for me this time. In all honesty I still have some lingering side effects of it to this day. Eating it "fresh" totally not my style, I just don't think I could do it, but I can take anything in pill form. It's only $100 here, so luckily I don't have to much of an expense to worry about.

I'd love to do the encapsulation. My good friend and probable doula does placenta encapsulation. Unfortunately, we're looking at likely having a hospital birth and the hospital here won't allow you to take home your placenta (ridiculous, they say its biohazardous materials!). I'm going to fight it and hopefully will get it, but don't really expect to...

I'm really excited too, I didn't have severe PPD but a low-level and persistent PPD that cleared up at around 13 months post-partum. It sucked. I am ready and willing to do whatever I need to do in order to avoid it this time, I want so badly to have that "love at first sight" experience with this new baby! I love DD with all of my heart now, but I also hope having a gentle and private birth at home will help me feel closer to her too.

Definitely fight it! We have a birth center attached to a hospital close-ish, and they just instated a new rule that they won't release the placenta until 4 days PP, at which point it is no longer safe to be eaten or encapsulated. People are outraged here and are fighting it, it's your "bio hazardous material" and they shouldn't be allowed to destroy it without your consent!

It seems like such a waste to just toss it out, really!! Plus, our official due date is January 6th - we usually get our first major storm in mid-January and February is a mass of blizzards and darkness here. SAD is a big issue here whereas we have winters that extend into May or even June sometimes, so PPD is an absolute concern at that time of year!!

In that case placenta prints are still an option. placenta.gif Not medicinal by any means, but at least something beautiful can still come out of it.

Ohh so exciting to see so many of you into placenta love.  I encapsulate placentas.  I actually have two to do in July and I am a little concerned with the morning sickness and all but it will probably be fine.  I am actually excited because I get some of the juju from the beautiful placentas every time I encapsulate(it is such a fulfilling job).  I plan on having my husband help me encapsulate mine.  With my 1st I laughed about encapsulation and said I would just eat steak.  Then had severe baby blues.  With #2 I had a friend encapsulate and really really feel like it helped(I used them for my period too and that was amazing since I got it 2 months postpartum ugg!).  I recommend asking if they do sliding scale if you can't afford it.  I would never turn anyone away so I offer trade.  I do feel like I need some exchange of energy though because it is a lot of work.  And if your husband is into doing it have him look up you tube videos it is seriously just like a steak.  I really prefer the raw method because of all the extra mojo in their and when you cook it, it smells really bad whereas if you just chop and dehydrate you can barely smell it.   I am excited for that 4th trimester, baby in arms, ohhing and ahhing stage.  I am really done with the I'm gonna barf or fall asleep stage and good lord I miss spending time with my hubby.  When I go to bed with the kids every night their is no time for us.

Claim spiritual beliefs and they will give it to you right away.  Think of how silly this is and fight for the organ that you took 9 hard months to build and enjoy after the birth.  The hospital here just packages it in three biohaz bags and then sends them off but that is because so many women here have fought for that.  Good luck I would be pissed but I guess that is why I try to avoid all that drama at the hospital.

I did encapsulation with my last two placentas, will definitely do it this time around too!

 

My oldest was born in a hospital and they let me take the placenta home.  Actually, it wasn't even *me*, a friend of mine took it home in a tupperware container, it was cut into 99 pieces and the scent was used to train search and rescue dogs.

I'll be encapsulating my placenta this time, too!  I had it done with DS2 and loved it.

babyf.gifI've felt the baby move every day for the last few days. Someone is in there! Any fetal movement from other top of the month mamas?
