So much going on I'm having a hard time keeping up.
to all newbies!
Emily, congrats on handing in your grant, now all you have to do is give birth...
Btw I loved all the wedding pics! Nice to see some of you for the first time.
I've still got my sausage fingers and some fat feet, my birks are tight... so I'm down to this raggedy flip flops... I guess I don't need to impress anyone anyway, right?
I can't complain as this is really the only 'bad' pregnancy symptom I've had.
I don't know how you ladies are still using your abs to get out of bed, every time I make a weird move I get a terrible pain below my belly in my pelvis area. I thought it was those braxton-hicks contractions but someone here mentioned ligament pain... I don't think I've had any braxton-hicks. I have had a few pains that feel like I've been poisoned, like gut-twisting pain. I don't know if that is a contraction but geez... I sure hope not... otherwise I'm going to get scared.
Dee - thanks for asking, yep the baby is head down. I know someone was asking about the need for u/s and from all the info I've read, I say you don't need them really. But I think I mentioned before seeing the baby for me was just too special to pass up. That's the only testing we've done. No glucose test or what's this one everyone is now getting, GBS? I don't even know what that is...
Btw lethargy has set in... I'm no longer concerned about being productive, I'm happy - even proud - when I'm able to actually make dinner. And I keep wondering when my nesting urge is going to hit me... I'm looking around my quickly becoming the yuckiest place ever and dreaming of someone coming to clean and organize everything before I give birth.
Just a few weeks to go. Btw I now feel like I'm having a boy. All girl vibes have disappeared. AND we don't have a name for a boy. Suggestions please?
Oh Elizabeth your DH is Spanish? I'm so nosy, just wondering where from and all that. At least it's your MIL - for me it's my mother and there is no escaping her. My DH doesn't speak Spanish so he just does his own thing whenever my Mom's been here for a visit since she only speaks Spanish to me. I think he prefers it like that since it gets him off the hook.
Judy - your dream... I agree with Emily, you are the best interpretor... and be warned that pregnancy brings some funky dreams! Good and bad. I just had one where I meet up with someone to go sell meth for $3000 (this must be related to my money fears!!). Well I don't know anything about meth or how it's done or anything, so in my dream I ask the guy - you got the stuff? And he shows me a little cassette tape from an answering machine... okay even I know that's ridiculous. I guess I should stop watching these CSI shows.
On that drug dealing note I guess I'll stop now before you all get the wrong impression about me!
