Random Chatter Thread

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
I thought I'd start one of these threads... post away... not everything I have to say needs its own thread, so feel free to post whatever you want in here, random, pregnancy related, or whatever


I have dropped 3.6lbs in the past week... I guess my appetite is not so fabulous but I'm just trying to be careful because I started this pregnancy 8lbs heavier than I was with DS. I'm also trying to be sensible this pregnancy and not gain 40lbs... so I think my body is just readjusting to my usual weight.

It's crazy, I thought I gained weight but I think I lost two pounds. When they weighed me at the docs I was surprised. I am really trying to not gain as much weight this time too (gained 45 lbs last two times) but I am SOOOO bad at being disciplined about food. I mean, I'm horrible at it. I don't think of myself as overweight... I have about 10 extra pounds, but I don't look overweight, iykwim.

OK now I'm rambling. My kids are napping so I should be too, but I've been to excited to be tired!

Oh I hate my doctor's scale... it adds 5lbs consistently... and as for the nap thing... I am so very tempted to put my DS in front of the tv with Cars on and go take a nap myself... it hits me at 3-4pm every day.

That could be your doc's scale though. DS always weighs different at home and at the docs.
post #5 of 30
Yeah, I think either my scale at home weighs heavy or the docs one weighs light!\

Bella -- I say go for Cars and the nap!! I did that when I was pg with my first. Now my DD who is 20 months will not watch movies, so it kind of throws that one out. Although she does take good naps, so that's nice!

i have also lost 2 lbs. I am having major food aversions, and don't want to eat anything. but at least there is no vomiting yet. : that it stays that way.

but we have had two midwife interviews, i sorta liked one, but liked her much better than the other one. so one more tomorrow and we will have chosen a midwife for our home birth, yay.

Selena that is awesome to know you'll have your midwife chosen by tomorrow!

I have my second beta draw this afternoon. I am getting nervous. My symptoms no longer exist other than the fatigue... and knowing my OB I won't have my results until Wednesday... ugh.

Same here in Canada- no fancy tests. I like it this way
post #10 of 30
We are ignored here in the US until 8 weeks too unless you have a history of m/cs.

well my nausea is in full force now, i can barely eat anything. at least no throwing up yet (fingers crossed)
post #12 of 30
I have no morning sickness yet, it usually strikes around 8 weweks for me and last time lasted throughout most of the pregnancy, it wasn't always severe but was enough to make me feel crap.

I took another preegnancy test today, apparently I am still pregnant...... I think I am still in shock too...... I am going to do another tomorrow, just to make sure.......

Food is so blech at the moment, I have never had a good relationship with food and it usually seems rather blech but its just much worse during pregnancy...... I just want to enjoy food, for once......
post #13 of 30
The nausea really hit me today. It's been on and off the past few days, but today... blah.

I took another pg test earlier in the week because I was feeling paranoid. I'm pregnant I wish I could just relax.

Right there with ya, selena_ski. I started with the mild nausea on Tuesday, and by Wednesday morning, I was throwing up I had some major heaving this AM, but no actual vomitting. I'm trying to eat whenever and whatever I can, and I suddenly got a craving for nectarines, so I made a mad run to the store Hey, at least they're healthier than the chicken mcnuggets I was also craving (and promptly ate), right? :

What do y'all think of this dress?

So, my SIL is getting married May 17. The wedding is black tie optional, and DH is in the wedding. I'm not sure what color to get, maybe black, maybe some other dark color.

I'll be almost 17 weeks, then. I started wearing maternity clothes around 16 weeks last time (though I really just needed more room in the waist), and I'm hoping the empire style will allow me to wear something non-maternity: http://www.davidsbridal.com/social_d...&prodgroup=213

I asked Bella where the baby was, and she pointed to HER belly! So cute
post #17 of 30
Mrs Mama... I think that dress is so pretty! And it would definately work for the expanding belly. It's nice how empire is so in. A lot of my clothes now are that style, so I will be able to wear them for a while. That dress is beautiful though. I say go for it!
post #18 of 30
I think it's great! And you're right. The high waist should allow you to wear it longer. I know last time around, I kept wearing alot of my dresses even when pants and skirts were getting tight.

After the wedding, that dress would look fabulous as a knee-length cocktail number, especially with a pair of matching red strappy heels. Va-va-voom!

I am completely, utterly exhausted all.day.long. No matter how much sleep I get or if I manage to get a nap in, I am just dead tired. I also started to get bouts of nausea in the mornings, so I'd love any advice on dealing with that since I had NO m/s with DS. I'm treading into uncharted waters here.

I got my results from my first blood test - progesterone 29 and hcg 1400 at 4w5d - and I just went for my second today (I think just the beta this time). Hopefully I'll have the results tomorrow and they don't make me wait the weekend again. Either next week or the following one I'll have my first appointment with my MW. She was awesome after my m/c and even though seeing her will mean delivering at the hospital, I am really confident that I'll get the birth *I* want this time.

Ugh. Still tired. Going to take my third nap.
