Yay for the eased up muscle cramps prayingfor12!


Ok, so I am wondering if I need to worry here. This afternoon my almost 4 yr old dd (33ish lbs) and I would laying in my bed watching a movie (trying to get a nap). She jumped onto my lower abdomen. Should I be worried???? I know there is tons of padding, but...

We haven't told her yet that I am pregnant - we want to wait to tell her till I am past the 1st trimester. Sooo, she has no idea why I was so upset.

You could tell her she's got to be careful with your tummy (and guard against being jumped on kids have poor memories) I think you will be fine as you are still in the pelvis mostly...

Seems that if something were wrong, you'd be hurting. You'd get squished before the baby would I think - you'd probably know.

I can't believe it! Bettie I just came on to ask the same question!! My toddler body slammed my tummy today and I was quite concerned, expecially because afterwards my tummy felt sore and a bit crampy. Luckily my dd went down for a nap shortly thereafter and I took the opportunity to lay down and do nothing for an hour or so. I was/am concerned but I'm trying not to over-react.
Now is the time when I wish I had one of those at home dopplers to check for the hr

My baby daddy (aka BD) did the sweetest thing Saturday night. I spent the night at his house and while I was sleeping, I felt his hand on my stomach. The baby would jump and his hand would be there. He said he did that for almost an hour while I was sleep (I was exhausted and hadn't rested in days). He said it was cool and he felt as if the baby were responding to him because it kept moving around all night (granted it was 2 inthe morning). Then Sunday morning I woke up with bad m/s and he went out in the cold and the snow to get me some grits and watermelon since that's the only thing I can stand to eat in the mornings. I was craving spinach by dinnertime and he made me a big pot of it (I LOVE his spinach) and just told me to relax while he took care of me since I'm always having to do it alone.

Times like those, I really love that man...and other days, he's just a baby daddy. LOL

Monique, I am so glad that you had a great weekend with him! Hopefully he just needed a little reality check and will be a responsible man.

Let's hope so, bettie.

Is anyone else experiencing back aches already? My back has been killing me all weekend? I thought maybe I slept wrong but today it's so achy. Any relief suggestions?

My three year old has jumped on my tummy SO many times since I've been pregnant. It's no cause for worry unless it's causing you lots of pain. There's a ton of padding in there. For both of my previous pregnancies, I fell straight on my belly once each. . once on the sidewalk and once on paver stones. Both times, I was about 20 weeks, and although it hurt, the babies were fine.

Me too. I have been trying to nap with ds in the afternoon so that I can spend the time after he goes to bed with dh, but some days it's TOUGH!! Like I doubt I will make it long tonight because ds caught a nap in the car and I missed out

I am SOOO tired the last few days and still pretty sick. Smells send me over the edge. Public restrooms are a BAD idea but I have to pee so d*mn much I don't have much of a choice and I am a horrible mouth breather. I get all Darth sounding. Cute.

Sad Sad bad Day today

Well I have been dealing with insomnia BAD, Cant get to sleep before 1pm and then get woken up multiple times by my DD, the pinging heating system, hubbie rolling over or snoring, massive tummy acke, the cat RUNNING around the house, basically anything! Then when my hubbies alarm goes off at 6:20am I can't really get back to sleep. Last night I maybe got 3hrs total, I feel wasted and ill, it made my M/S SOOOOO much worse today. I have basically been lying on the floor trying to play with my DD all day while she destroys the house. BUT the worst of it is that today is the 3rd anniversary of my dads very sudden death (he was only 58). I just want to crawl under the covers and be alone.

At least my mom is here now having a jolly time with my DD (its good to get her mind off today) and I am vegging in bed with the laptop( I should be napping but I can't sleep). Also my hubbie is bringing home dinner.:

I HAVE been going to bed with my 3 year old at 8:30. If I'm not in bed and sleeping by 9:30 I get too tired. I am rarely able to nap and I find I need a good solid 10 hours to 'keep up'
My DH works construction and gets up at 5 am so he often hits the hay early with me.
Occasionally the phone will ring around 9;30-10 and I catch myself thinking "Who would call at this hour?" and then realizing it isn't that late yet.

Thanks for the replies about the belly jumpers. I did have cramping worse than the normally dull cramps last night, though not much. But just to be safe, I was horizontal on the couch all night after getting dd to bed at 8.

Totally unrelated to pregnancy but I'm addicted to celeb gossip and just found out Heath Ledger is dead! How awful is that?! http://www.people.com/people/article...173072,00.html

Aside from the fact that this is super-cute... Exactly HOW far along ARE you?! Girl, I can't even feel the baby myself - no way could someone else feel it! Are you having septuplets and just not telling us?

Yeah, mild ones. Heating pad?

BakerALM, I'm sorry your day is going so lame. Best wishes for good sleep tonight and a nice day tomorrow.

Me: Woke up with a 2-finger-sized numb spot on my rear. Seems to only be numb when I'm walking. WHAT is THAT?! My chiro said not to worry unless it gets worse or the spot gets bigger. Ideas, Ladies? Seems freaky to me.

Oh, and in random news, my parakeet has a massively swollen and discolored leg and toe. He's going to a bird vet Friday.

I am feeling so depressed right now. I don't know if it's because of the m/s messages people are posting of their losses or if I'm just out of it, but the depression really just hit me. I have my first appointment tomorrow and are terrified right now. I need a hug. Ithink I'll call my grandma.

Reading about losses always makes me nervous, too. Just remember that most babies are ok. It just seems like there are a lot of losses because those people post, while most people don't post daily. I don't have a better way to make you feel better, though.

Meg: Take me to the bed or lose me forever!

Oh my god, I love that scene. I say it to my husband all the time. (especially lately when I am so tired that I can barely drag myself from the couch to bed).

I could have sworn I could never feel as tired as I did taking care of my older ds when I was pg with #2, but I take it all back now!! #2 ds is not a great sleeper and was up and down for 2 hours last night and then up at 5:30 again, though thankfully went back to sleep until 7. The kid is killing me!! I'm thinking about puting the humdifier in my room with the door closed and asking dh (who can sleep in the guest bed) to care for him until at least 6am. Ds is night weaned so he should be fine.

: let this part be over soon!! I'm seriously going to be in bed by 9 tonight!
