I'm so excited to start hearing birth stories and seeing pics of our babies!

 



Yes!  I mean, in "normal" life a couple of weeks or even a month goes by sooooooo fast!

Anybody else losing their appetite? I lost about 2 lb over the last couple days (no idea why but love it LOL) but was still eating everything in sight. Today I have had very little appetite. Only ate 2 very small meals today and because the first time my blood sugar was low (hypoglycemic with low bp) and dinner was just because I knew I needed to eat....I haven't even been craving the cookies on the counter and I am a chocoholic/sugar junkie!!! I have had ctx all day but just light BH, only a few have been even slightly more intense/achey, so it's not like I can blame the ctx!!!! It is just odd, I never once lost my appetite during my other pregnancies.

I wish I had less of an apptetite... My cravings have been out.of.control. From 37-38 weeks I gained 4lbs... Hoping and praying that doesn't happen again next week! :/

I've kind of had a drop in appetite, but I think I mainly I'm just bored of what I've been cooking and need to get on tastespotting or something and find some new ideas/motivation, lol. I also have a hard time eating much when I'm stressed out, which has been the case for most of the past few months, unfortunately!

 

Of course, the only real craving I'm having right now is something that I can't eat...homemade bread straight out of the oven, with a great big slab of extra sharp cheddar on top...waaaaaahhh (just gave up dairy, and need to stay away from it for at least 6 months)!

I'm definitely slowing down on eating, 1babysmom.

I'm at a strange point. I've been feeling ravenous constantly but my weight keeps dropping slightly at my checkups. Not complaining one bit but whoa. With DD1 I gained right through to the end thanks to swelling. This time I'm not dealing with swelling (yet) so I guess I'm leveling out.

 

 

As a side note, I wonder if I'll hit 1000 posts before LO arrives.

 I had pregnancies with my first two where I also gained all the way to the end, probably mostly water weight because I swelled a lot.  But I wasn't eating a ton!  This time I have been eating WAY more (until maybe the last couple of days) and totally plateaued on gaining.  I've only gained 6lbs total in the third tri, and none of that has been recent.  Fundal height also slowed down too.  It's so fascinating to me, how my body could the same thing twice and then a TOTALLY different thing the third time.

Do posterior babies cause your back to hurt more during pregnancy? I know the posterior position during labor causes back labor, but what about pregnancy?

Same here, except it was 3 identical pg's for me! (Well 3 1/3 because even my later m/c was exactly the same!)

Is anyone else trying to come to terms with baby's position? For the last week or two my babe has persistently been between ROA and ROP. I am really good about working towards OFP during pregnancy, ad while sometimes I can get this little one back LOA or OA, it keeps rolling back closer to ROP (suture lines are very obvious, babe gets head WAY down in my pelvis). I have never delivered a posterior baby, and I don't fear it but it isn't my ideal situation. However, I am beginning to believe that this baby may have a reason for it's position, possibly cord related because my pelvis is pretty great if I might say so myself. LOL. I know s/he could still turn before/during birth but it has just been one of those things where I am thinking I need to come to terms with it in case s/he is MEANT to birth posterior.

With regards to the weight, I stayed the same weight for the longest while, and then in the two weeks between this week's appointment and the previous one, I gained between 4 and 5 pounds.

My baby is ROA, sometimes OA, but all three of my babies have been ROA in the third tri and I have had two great births so I'm not thinking about it even though I know SpinningBabies says ROA is not ideal.

My previous ones were ROA until birth as well (one or two were LOA just as frequently, though...I have dancing babies LOL).  This is my most posterior babe yet though...even when I disengage him/her for the purpose of turning, and wrap up while LOA or OA, s/he still engages back to closer to ROP, so that's why I'm thinking maybe there's a reason.

Can someone explain to me what all the terms mean with regards to position? I honestly am clueless. I should probably google it. =P

LOL I googled this just the other day! Found out that spinningbabies actually seemed to have the most thorough info on it. Lotsa pictures and whatnot. Really interesting stuff!

I think they can cause more pre-labor contractions because your body is trying to help turn them.

 

The last few days I have been having a break from my daily 4 hour false labor but today when I laid down with DD for a nap I had a good amount of pressure in my back and crotch and a few weak, but real contractions. I am planning on going to the gym in a little bit. Curious to see how it effects me today. Not that I want to go into labor at 35 weeks but maybe I can get some effacing/dilating done ahead of time.

 

Cagnew - I meant to say contractions in your back.

Baby's ROA, I think.  And, just like DD1, today I felt her pressing her hands on my cervix, so I got up on the couch and did the balancing ligaments inversion thing that Spinning babies recommends to get her to stop that.  It did seem to help  I pushed for SOOOOO long with DD because she had a nuchal hand, so I've been asking this baby not to do that. :)  The spinning babies website is really cool.

 

I'm really not very hungry either.
