Hi to all the ladies that are re-joining us.
I didn't notice a big difference in baby dropping between Tori and Jack only because I carried them both SOOO differently.
Tori was HIGH HIGH up under my ribs until about the last week & a half. Then she moved down about "halfway" down. It was funny to hear people say, WOW you are carrying so high still... HA, she's low now!! :LOL She didn't fully drop until a day or so before I went into labor.
Jack was a LOW rider the ENTIRE pregnancy. He was always way down in my pelvis. My bladder was his pillow, trampoline, dance floor... whatever the entire pregnancy.
: So I didn't really notice him "dropping" so much until the last couple of weeks when his head was fully engaged.
MUNCHIE CENTRAL here! I'm constantly snacking. Luckily we've had a lot of fruit and nuts around... but the POTATO CHIPS are constantly calling me. :LOL I've gained more weight because of it though.
I'm not worried and neither is my OB but is does make a difference on how easily I'm getting around... or not rather. :LOL
David leaves for 2 weeks in a couple of hours. He's currently cleaning out his car (why do they look like they live in them??) and packing up his military gear. Should be an interesting 2 weeks... and very exhausting since I won't be able to have my morning naps. (sniff sniff) But we talked about using this time to get the kids back on a strong schedule with bedtimes. They both really sleep better with a 'schedule'. David is always the one to throw the bedtimes out of whack. Hopefully we'll be able to keep them on track for when Radish gets here. That's going make it a lot easier.
I've been making a few lists of some
of the projects I hope to get done while David is gone. I can use the time when he wanted attention after the kids are in bed.
Allergies are kicking our butts here. Both Tori and Jack have the clear running noses and the sneezes. I've been waking up with some sinus pressure too. The weather has been GORGEOUS yesterday and today. Like 10+ degrees COOLER and the humidity is down like 30%, this is SOOO not Texas summer weather!! So we've been outside in the grass (which is getting the allergies going
). I hope we get to spend the afternoon before David leaves just lazying around in the backyard.
I've slept horribly for the last two nights, Radish has been "uncomfortable" apparently and is constantly moving around trying to find a comfortable position. And if it's comfortable for ME... he hates it.
: No need for kick counts with this boy. :LOL
Great belly pics everybody. We took a bunch again the other night but they are STILL on David's laptop (so are the ones from 2 weeks ago!). I need to get him to transfer them before he leaves today.
I just measured my belly for giggles... 47" around. :LOL :LOL Yep, I'm a petite belly... NOT! :LOL
Caroline I'm sorry to hear about your + GSB test. Well if you have fast labors, that's a good thing. The risk of tranferring is when there is a long period between the waters breaking and birth. Hope you are able to find a solution you are comfortable with.
Okay I need to go make lunch, I'll be back later tonight.
