I've got a UTI too. :/ My new midwife has been out of town, so I'm calling her today for an ABX script. It's been a week already! Ugh. I did D-Mannose and Cranberry too, but it's not cutting it. I think I've gotten a really tough UTI each pregnancy so far. Wish I had remembered and just started taking cranberry just in case! And after the ABX I usually get a yeast infection, which is equally as awesome. *sigh*
My morning sickness has totally amped up and it SUCKS. I just want to die today. We just threw my DD#1's 4th birthday party yesterday though so my house is a disaster and needs major cleaning so of course, laying on the couch in agony isn't an option. Bleh.
Sorry I have been out for a while, and so totally far behind on the conversation. I am at work, so can't write too much. Owlhowl, glad to hear DH is giving the belly some love! I am lucky because DH likes to rub the belly and is willing to talk pregnancy stuff a bit. He is super sympathetic about my aches, pains and exhaustion. We do butt heads sometimes when it comes to the details of labor and delivery. We have different perspectives on why I ended up with a cesarean last time around. I think it was "failure to wait," along with bad hospital policies that slowed my labor. He thinks the OB knew what was best. To be honest, only the Heavens know the truth. Fortunately, DH is trying really hard to be very supportive a VBAC even though he has some major reservations about it.
KaliShanti, I started feeling something like Braxton Hicks starting a couple weeks ago, but i just couldn't believe I would feel them this early. After reading your post, I did some quick searching and while some sites say they start in 2nd trimester, others say they start as early as 6 wks.
I have another appt. scheduled with my CNM this Friday. They squeezed me in last time, so this will be the full OB write-up. Hoping to hear heartbeat on doplar this time around.
Oh definitely! I measured ahead my last pregnancy as well.
Thinking of you owlhowl! KaliShanti, it is probably from being so active. I would just take it easy the rest of the day-if possible. I have also been extra achy/crampy today in my girlie parts and upper thighs. I am hoping it is just my body adjusting to the extra activity now that I am feeling a bit better.
