~Weekly Chat Thread for June 7th-14th~ - Page 2
After high BP readings with my MW yesterday, I asked a MW friend to check when I was at her house tonight. 112/74! Whew. Slightly higher than in the last couple months but very healthy. Will be keeping an eye on it (where is my cuff??), but relaxing in that there's likely nothing sustained happening.
I think my fussy, clingy toddler is finally asleep AND fully detached. Now I guess it's my turn, as long as this heartburn stays away. :/
Same here. Actually, the fullness seems to come and go, but yeah. I've actually had random let-down feelings throughout the whole pregnancy and they surprise me every time. Lol... And I haven't done this in five years!
I'm hoping this is all a good sign, it was a huge struggle with DS... :(
I have a little something when I try and express. And now that you mention it, DS has been actually nursing a little rather than just hanging out on the boob...
I have been feeling very belly-full all day long, yet still hungry at meal times which just makes me feel MORE full after I eat. Also, mild BH all morning. I really wanted to go for a long walk today, but I am not feeling up for it. Bummer.
I have had a little bit of the crusties for a couple of months now, I think. I haven't tried to express it or anything.
Tonight I had to extract a tiny little tick from DS's upper inner thigh (what a spot for one) while he was rolling around on the floor finding the whole thing hilarious. I may have permanently strained something with all the contortions required to reach it.
Reading through our DDC posts, I love the theme that's arising--heaviness, readiness. Reminds me that the end is near--although I'm not sure what I'm really counting down to--baby's arrival or the end of HG forever.
I didn't post this earlier, but after a week and a half off my meds, I started throwing up everything and losing weight again. Couldn't even keep down water. So I hauled it in to the doc to get my prescription refilled and I am doing better. I even managed to do one more performance this past Saturday. I sat down most of the time, but I was actually surprised baby cooperated and stayed down off my diaphragm enough to allow me to sing for an hour without losing breath. The clients were super nice to me and thankful I could make it. I did feel massive though! After i had finished singing through the cocktail hour (all i was contracted for) I almost cried when a rep from the company asked me if I would like to stay for dinner-- I looked down at my huge belly and asked "don't I look like I want dinner?!" Lol. So I had Caesar salad and steak, and now I am on maternity leave--officially! :-)
It's super hot here every day, but my kids have been really patient with staying indoors all the time. I think my memories of this last trimester will include lots of Keva blocks and organic nectarines--and Orangina!!!
So besides getting all colostrumy and milky, how are the rest of you doing?? :-)
Going up the stairs multiple times a day wears me out too! Our last house (during DD's pregnancy) was a ranch with a rarely used basement, so I'm not used to this two-story with basement conundrum. It seems like I'm constantly needing something that's on another level of the house! Sigh...
I started seeing a chiropractor- first time ever for me- yesterday after having some lower back pain this past week. Two adjustments in and my back feels 90% better!! I am waiting until after my adjustment tomorrow to learn the cost of keeping up with chiropractic care for the rest of my pregnancy. The chiropractor I'm seeing specializes in pregnant women- so I'd like to keep seeing him through the end if the cost isn't too prohibitive. We'll see... Has anyone here seen a chiropractor for general pregnancy preventative stuff?? I.e., good positioning for pelvis, baby?
I haven't, but I'm about to call one. I've probably always needed a chiropractor, but my weekend back "injury" (nothing serious, but ouchie for a day or two) along with the referral I got from my midwife last week for one not very far from me was the kick in the pants I needed! This baby does not like to hang out head down, so we'll see if we can make it more hospitable.
