While I don't shop at WalMart, that lady could've been me, LOL! I've so done that on a number of occasions. Of course I always have my babe on a cart seat cover...don't think I'd have my bare boob resting on an icky cart handle. I actually had to resort to nursing like this when my dd refused to nurse in the sling. I'm sure I was a sight!
Well, I saw my mw today for our first official appt. It was pretty laid back. We basically discussed the game plan if I'm carrying twins. She seemed to think the possibility was pretty great, too. I've already gained close to 10lbs: and my uterus is where one would expect to find it at 15-16 weeks. It was funny the look of surprise she got on her face as she was palpating! My hemoglobin has gone down a bit since the beginning of pregnancy despite little change in my diet. We didn't listen to the babe(s) b/c I heard the HB the other night at work and I knew all was well. I kind of wanted dh to hear it, too but my mw convinced me to go get an u/s to rule out twins so we'll see it soon enough. Anyway, although it was good to see my mw, I have mixed feelings about it all. With my history of pp bleeding I wouldn't be a good candidate for HB with twins. I would be so sad to have to birth anywhere but at home. I wasn't going to have an u/s til 18 weeks but now I think I'll need the extra 6-7 weeks I'd have if I found out now to prepare myself if it is indeed twins. I just have so many "symptoms" and honestly I'd be shocked if there was just one.
I wasn't going to have an u/s at all if i could help it, or at least at week 38 or something but this is throwing a wrench in those plans and i think i need to rule twins in/out. ive been thinking about that this whole trip...im only into my 2nd trimester and im looking like im 6 months pregnant.
Babycakes, im keeping a food log too. I am using one of my really pretty journals and recording some other notes about how i feel, etc. etc. That way i will keep it for memorabilia..i know that sounds corney, but doing it online before i just quit and felt nothign invested. i keep it on my kitchen counter and have a really nice pen to write with on it....helps me want to do it.
and good for you about hte MW...the only one we could get (due to our stupid state) is in MT..she is comign to live with us for 2 weeks prior to the EDD..talk about traveling, huh? lol!
