Weekly Chat thread - October 2-8th - Page 2

Oh Twilight! I hope it's nothing - I know spotting can be pretty common in early preg, especially around the time you would normally get your period. s

I'm pretty nervous still - AF was/is due on Sunday, and I just keep thinking that this is all going to come crashing down around me any minute...ugh.

More s !

Twilight I hope everything is okay.

I'm Marcy, 31, Dh is 27. We have been married for almost 6 years and have a 20 mo old dd. We both WAH and love it. I planned a natural hospital birth with a doula for my 1st but ended up with a C/S. I live in the sticks and the one hospital does not allow vbac, so for now it looks like I have to have another c/s It's nice to read about everyone and get to know you all a little better.

Twilight, sticky baby dust to you.

I'm B. I'm 35, and this is our third pregnancy. The first resulted in our beautiful miracle Julia, the second, sadly, was a m/c.

I'm really hoping and praying this baby is in for the long haul. Anyway, good luck everyone.

I'm Stacy, I'm 35, SAHM, and we have a ds who just turned 1 in late September, who is still nursing. We are happy to be pregnant with our second as I am no spring chicken! My dh, 35, just started medical school in August, so the only time I see him is at dinner - har har.

I attempted to go UC on our first birth, and made an emergency transfer to the hospital very late in labor. We will be have a midwife-assisted homebirth this time.

Im so glad there is someone else who has a one year old who i still nursing and we're due the same time!! How has your baby acted? Any diff? and do you have pain? also do you plan on continuing to nurse and tandem nurse?

Thank you guys for the hugs. It means so much.

I ended up going in to the OB's office, because this hasn't happened to me before, and I wanted to know what to expect. The spotting has stayed pink / brown and seems to be getting less... so that is good. They drew blood for beta HCG's. They'll draw more Sunday and I'll get results on Monday. For now all seems to be OK, but one day at a time, I guess.

Oy. I was a complete freak with my first pregnancy and was feeling so proud for being un-freaky this time around - LOL! And now I'm freaky-obessive again. Nothing I can do, I guess - if baby is going to stick, it will, and if it won't, nothing I can do now will change its mind... so I will just hope that the little bean is healthy and staying around for a while, and look forward to getting the hcg results Monday.

My baby is acting the same, but is not interested in nursing as much except at naps, bedtime, and in the morning when he wakes up. He probably wakes once a night to nurse, but sometimes will sleep all night.

I don't have pain per se, but I just feel a bit of aversion - like a weird feeling for a sec when he latches on, and then I start feeling antsy after about 5 minutes wanting him to be done. He usually nurses from 5-15 minutes.

I plan to let him nurse as long as he wants and as long as there's milk, but I hope he might wean himself before the baby comes. We'll see..You?

Hi everyone!

Well I am just thrilled to join you guys over here, I know some of you from the TTC boards and I was so hoping to move over here with a little Junebug, and here I am, got a just this morning, at 11 dpo!

I'm Kerri, just turned 28 a couple weeks ago, DH is Steve, 38. We have two beautiful little girls, Teresa (3) and Madeleine (16 months) and now our third little blessing is due 6/19! My dds are tandem nursing, although Teresa doesn't nurse all that much anymore, so we'll see if she self-weans by then or if I'll end up triandem nursing!! I'm a SAHM and an LLL Leader, and we homeschool (just started a preschool program with our 3-year-old).

My pregnancies were pretty uneventful and I had two "typical" hospital births with more interventions that I would have liked, but nothing terrible - anyway, we were living in D.C. then and moved to PA last year, so since I needed to find a new health-care provider anyway, I decided to go with a midwife. So, unless I chicken out by then (mostly fear of whether I have it in me to go drug-free after 2 epidurals, not fear of the out-of-hospital setting) I'll be delivering at a CNM-run birth center which is located right up the street from a hospital (that makes DH happy, he feels safe that way).

This was my second PP cycle so it didn't take too long to conceive, I feel OK so far, craving salty things and having some hot flashes, but nothing too bad yet. Anyway, so glad to be able to share this wonderful time with you all, and praying for for all of us!

Oh yeah, Twilight, hope everything is OK - I know plenty of people who've had spotting early on and it was nothing. : for you!

's Twilight. I spotted for the first 7 1/2 months with ds#1 - it freaked me out the entire way until that first time I wiped and there was nothing. I ended up having a low-lying placenta with him, but ended up being complication free well before delivery (as I grew, the placenta moved up and away from the cervix). How many dpo or weeks pregnant are you? I'll be sending you some this weekend until you find out on Monday how your levels look.

Twilight - I hope you get wonderful results on Monday! Sending you lots of sticky baby vibes.

BundleFishMama - congrats! It is so good to see some familiar names over here! I am thrilled you could join us.

Twilight~ I hope that everything is ok.

I'm Sarah and I'll be 27 next month, DH is almost 33. We have been married for 5 years and we have a 4.5 y/o DD. She is our honeymoon baby . This pregnancy will be our second child, but the 6th that I have given birth to. I was a surrogate to two beautiful boys that were born in April 2003 and two beautiful girls born in January 2005 that I breastfed for two weeks and pumped for 8 weeks. Those pregnancies were fun, but I'm so excited to be bringing home a baby to our house this time. I'm also looking forward to a nice relaxing singleton pregnancy LOL (unless twins are in the cards for us, but I doubt it).

My DD and the boys were delivered vaginally. The girl twins were by c-section. I am very upset about the fact that I had a section with the girls. I went into labor naturally when my water broke at home. By the time I got to the hospital I was 7cm. But, my OB refused to let me have them vaginally. At the time I wasn't in the right state of mind to stick up for myself and no one else did. By the time the surgery started Baby A was crowning. If I had known I was that close to deliverring while I was waiting for the spinal I would have just pushed LOL. I didn't know until they had cut me open and had to unwedge her head. I am really hoping for a homebirth this time because all of the hospitals and OBs in my area refuse to do V-bacs anymore thanks to the terrible malpractice insurace here in Nevada. I'm planning on consulting with the two midwifery practices in our area soon.

Sheesh I didn't mean to write a novel LOL. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!

Thank you Korin! I really enjoyed being pregnant, so it was lots of fun for me to do for other people. I'm dying to have a baby of my own now. I've had baby fever since before I delivered the girls!

Twilight,

You are in my thoughts. Take it easy and stay hydrated and keep your bladder empty. I received this advice when I'd had early problems in pregnancy as it decreases the irritability of your uterine muscles.

Also, my MIL spotted lightly nearly her entire pregnancy with one of my (full term and healthy) BILs. Bizarre, but possible.

Twilight... any news today?
post #38 of 46
gsmama2 you are amazing. Being a surrogate is something I have thought about doing but never got the courage! Kudos to you!

chiromama that is so sweet of you to ask. I am holding up. The spotting stopped, what a huge relief. It was pink and brown but never became red; a good sign also. I feel lousy today. A little nauseated, tired, irritable, and cranky. As miserable as I am to live with at the moment I am also taking that as a hopeful sign that things are really OK with babybean.

Good reminder on the water bonbon_mama. Off to refill!

I'm starting to get the feeling that baby will stick after all. I can make it till Monday anyway when the beta results get in! Here's hoping and thanks again for thinking of me, it helps. As much as I'm obsessing it's nice to be able to talk about it
