Okay mamas- how you all feeling?
post #3 of 94
Anytime now, Two nights ago I thought for sure because i was having ctx while laying down/sleeping which hadn't happened up until then. Yesterday ctx were actually noticeable without actually touching my stomach. Tonight, they still aren't timeable but they are noticeable... I have to keep telling myself to just take it in stride and not get excited until i know for sure because usually when i go to bed things stop.. and the drop to rock bottom of having two weeks of maybes on my mind really stressed me out for two or three days (broke down crying/throwing tantrums/yelling at DH for a day and a half before i evened out) I'm feeling much better now, everything has come together as far as finances and the house being clean and knowing what town DH is working in and stuff... I'm so ready to meet my baby and know whether i have a boy or a girl!
post #4 of 94
whoohoo come on babies! I love birth.
post #5 of 94
Definitely sounds like baby is coming soon for ya, muskokan! YAY!

I had some really intense squeezes last night while laying on my side trying to fall asleep. I felt my stomach lift off the support pillow! So exciting... Am I kwazy for loving labor?

awesome Yvonne! Thanks- I'll update the list
post #10 of 94
Hi mommas!

After bragging about how I haven't been sick this time (had severe hyperemesis with my daughter) I am starting to get queezy. Ugh.

Other than that nothing new. Hope all is well with you guys!
post #11 of 94
Weegift333 here...

Because we aren't completely *certain* on our dates and have elected not to have any u/s during our UP, the earliest we could possibly be due is 2/6, but the latest we could be due is in the first half of March! :-P So I am completely in the dark on it...

I have had really good, strong braxton hicks contractions for about 1/2 of the pregnancy, and I actually enjoy how they feel for some reason. I don't remember thinking that they felt pleasurable during my first pregnancy, so that's interesting (and odd)...

I feel like it could happen anyday; we did a belly cast a couple of weeks ago, that was fun -- when I compared it with the cast I did for my first, my belly looked very much the same in terms of size and shape! Kinda funny...

I'm pretty sure I just have one in there but there are days that I wonder... ;-)

I've pretty much assembled our supplies etc, except for snacks and drinks and also sitz bath herbs --

BTW, is anyone nursing through their pregnancy? My dd occasionally asks to nurse and I go as long as I can but it is excruciating; does this change once the baby is out and my hormones shift around or can I just expect to be sore/sensitive during nursing b/c of the frequency of newborn nursing needs plus having a toddler who will undoubtedly want "the other one"...? :-)
post #12 of 94
Oh how exciting... babies due anytime.

I'm still feeling like the walking dead with m/s but I'm 11w on Monday so maybe the end is nigh? One can hope! I have been praying for it... having it all day is so awful when you have two Beans needing care and all the regular stuff that comes with life. Still though... it is reassuring as well since we have not heard a heart beat or what not. I am resisting using my midwife friend's doppler and holding out for the fetoscope whenever I feel so inclined. Can you hear on those at 12w? 16? I can't remember.

In the meantime, starting to put together a list of things I am going to buy to have on hand (herbs, tinctures, homeopathics, etc.) so I can figure out how to spread out the cost. I also keep wondering in the back of my mind about 2 since I'm a fraternal twin and have had a thought that I'd have two girls next pg (before I got pg) but we'll see. Not holding my breath, the chances don't increase a huge lot with me being a fraternal twin... but a little.

My twin sister is due 2 days before me (my due date is actually 8/28) so that's pretty cool. Just waiting for the blessed 2nd tri.

Happy births to you Mamas that are due... wishing you well!
post #13 of 94
wow BirthFree, you and your twin sister are pregnant at the same time? that is cool. when your bellies start getting big, you'll have to share some pictures!
post #14 of 94
I know, isn't that a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? She's my only sibling too and my best friend (and lives all of 15 min. from my house). We have had a tough time getting together for pictures but we'll keep trying - we surely can't miss the opportunity (and as of now, little belly (or at least for her, she's a first time Momma)). I'll share some pictures when we take them.

I was going to but my son actually FORGOT how to nurse. (He can't figure out how to latch nor how to suck any more...) This was around month 5. It's probably more painful because your breasts are making colostrum now instead of milk. I bet after the milk kicks in, it won't be as painful (unless you have thrush?).

I'm hoping my boy can re-learn to latch and suck once there's milk in there to reward him for his efforts. Right now, it's just colostrum and ain't flowing the same, although he likes the taste and thinks it's funny to try to latch on. I maybe expressing milk for him for the next few years (non-vax'ing are we).

I'm nursing my 18 month old dd, with no end in sight. It hasn't gotten painful yet, but boy is it irritating sometimes. We used to nurse pretty much all night long, but now I pretty much nurse her to sleep and substitute the breast witha binky, because if she nurses all night I cannot sleep at all. When she fusses and spits out the binky I nurse her until she's satisfied and pop the binky back in, so we're still nursing on demand but her need to comfort suck is being met without driving me insane. It's my way of avoiding actual night weaning, which I know she isn't ready for yet.

I am so sorry! I think the same thing happened to me.. the efirst 6-7 weeks were good.. then bam.. puke city until week 19! heheh..

My mucuos plug is falling out... falling out... falling out... (like to the tune of london bridges falling down...)

Not too much at once, but enough to notice it.

Tee hee, my DH was stressing about some extra work he promised to do for another company... so i teased him that my waters breaking now and baby coming would probably stress him out even more... but he replied, "no, it would bring welcome relief and a stress break"
