Oh, Caly, I am sure that CaCountry is right about those signs. It won't be long now! I will have to keep my eyes on my cat in the coming weeks. Baking is a great idea. I think I've convinced dh to start making some meals to freeze (his last day of summer school is tomorrow!). I need to keep him kind of busy so I can still have some productive time at home and get closer to finishing my projects.
Boots, I get temporary hand swelling when I go on my walks and it goes down considerably very soon after. I was thinking along the same lines as what Lily's doc said. But, our 10th anniversary wedding band is long off my finger, and the full size larger one is now tight in general, so I definitely have more fluid in general in my hands.
Nice diaper cover and great compliment, Erica. I had two comments about looking small or not looking pregnant (?!?) today from random people. I think they were clueless, though, really. Um, I've gained over 25 lbs and have a big round belly that moves, and you've never seen me before, so wtf?
2sweetsparrows: I think anemia is pretty common at that point in pregnancy because of the extra fluid in your body (or so the ob told me). I have extra iron prenatals as it is, but I started taking them when I wake up in the early morning (to avoid nausea) so I can still have milk products with breakfast. Are those inches or cm you are gaining? I thought the fundal measurement was in cm, but maybe you are talking about a different measurement?
Hope to hear some good news from you soon, CaCountry!!
Nothing too exciting here. I seem to be getting a bit of nausea, has this happened to anyone in 3rd tri? Boots, did you mention this? I'm not close to vomiting, but it's a feeling that I need to eat crackers or something to calm my stomach.
I think my parents have decided to drive down instead of flying after the baby comes. I guess this will give them a lot of flexibility. I hope they arrive speaking to each other, though!
