Thanks for the new thread Uriver! I was gonna volunteer again but things might get crazy for me soon.

How are you feeling? Taking it super easy I hope.


Where is coffee??? Lol. I feel like I'm womb stalking her.

I have battled pica since I was a kid.. It's flaring up again. Just a craving so far... But it so annoying. This may be the first time I've actually admitted it.

Thebyr, you crack me up. Still here, baby in uterus!! smile.gif Crazy that today is my due date- the date burned into my memory so very long ago. I wrote it on a bank transaction slip and it felt so strange!

I'm trying to eat lots of spicy foods now- craving them, actually. Might as well- I'm already doing all of the other fun things to make baby come out! This is such an exercise in patience.

100% - ikr? Exciting! We spend so much time trying to get and stay pregnant that the end result is like "WHOA."

Lol coffee! Well hello due date! I'm glad you're having fun doing all the things that will make baby come. I hope baby makes an appearance soon - I'm pretty excited.

Thanks Uriver for directing me over to here!  And yes, I am holding onto the doctor saying that everything looks good at 6 weeks.  I have to do that.

100%--I know!!!  So exciting.  Three months does not seem long at all.  Especially with school and holidays.  Guessing I have 14wks left, though this will probably be the one to go to 42, lol.

 

Coffee-maybe you're craving for a reason :) Baby wants a jump start out.  Any ctx?

 

Uriver-you have 2 drs?  I was thinking you just had high risk ob by now.  

 

Front page list-should the 2012 rainbows be kept up?  Just wondered.  It makes it pretty long, and for some of them, it's over a year.  Maybe just 2013 rainbow babies, since it's 4 months from the end of the year already?  Just a thought as I was scrolling down to see who was next.  Looks like Sept-Dec are going to be lots of rainbows :)

What are you craving? I have a friend who was eating corn starch by the spoonful while she was pregnant. She was pretty freaked out when her doc told her that she had pica and that corn starch wasn't food. Dirt and clay also seem to be common cravings with pica.

thebyr- ive craved ice in the second trimester, and my midwife told me last time that is a pica symptom and to start iron supplements. I ended up severely anemic last time, but I think it was partly bc I added dairy t almost every meal trying to up my protein, since my iron comes mainly from leafy greens, I was not allowing my body to absorb it. this time, ive started to take floradix every morning, and I'm not craving It as badly. I was a peace corp s volunteer and my counterpart ate chalk, and lots of my students, especially girls, had Pica. you aren't alone.

I just realized looking at the list that I'm half way. I still am not feeling any movements, maybe some flutters, but by now with my son my husband could feel him kicking. I have a level 2 ultrasound down in San Francisco ( over 2 hours away) on Wednesday. I spent two weeks looking for childcare for my son and just talked someone into doing it. We will be gone for almost 8 hours, and we live on the opposite coast from our families, it's reminding how intense things well be if we make it to delivery.

uriver- I hope it goes well at your next several appointments, it seems like the high risk ob should see you asap!

coffee- I hope you don't have to wait too long! I know you are uncomfortable, but I hope you can find a way to pamper yourself everyday until your little one arrives.

Uriver: Thanks for the new thread! And I'm so happy you've made it this far too!!

 

Coffee: So excited for you! Any time now!

 

Thebyr: I had mild pica with my last few living children but it was pretty mild. I craved anything powdery. Powdered laundry detergent and Comet looked AWESOME although I never let myself taste it (almost tasted the detergent once...) I substituted by eating powdery candy like sweet tarts, smarties, pixie stix, etc. I wasn't anemic at the time and I have no idea where it came from. As soon as the baby was born I couldn't stand to look at any of those things.

 

Kimberly: I too think it's a good thing that the doctor said you looked great if you were 6 1/2 weeks. Because my O date has varied widely in the past (and you add in the uncertainty of implantation) I know I've gotten my dates wrong in my head and was expecting to be further along than I was.

 

Hello 100%, Tenk, pattimomma, hippy mum, writinglove and Sienna!

 

AFM: Took a bit of a break there from posting although I was reading along. Just feeling really mentally tired and spread too thin if you know what I mean. Things are going fine here, thank God. I got my two steroid shots Thursday and yesterday (no problems). They put me on the monitors for an hour when I had the first shot which I wasn't expecting. The nurse was dubious about getting a strip on a 24weeker but we got a great one. (She went to show it off at the nurse's station, lol.) I had one really awful run of close contractions a week or two ago but other than that things have been fine and no bleeding/spotting. I was surprised by the announcement Thursday when I got to the OB office that I was having my 1 hour glucose that morning. Thank goodness it went fine too: 127. Yay for no 3 hour! My mom has actually accepted this pregnancy might end happily (not that she's been a real downer, just not making plans - I don't blame her) and has said she'll get us our car seat. So exciting to actually talk about getting a car seat! Like I might have a real live baby at the end of this! My big personal goal is getting to 34 weeks so the baby doesn't have to be choppered out to the nearest good NICU (here they only take 34 and after). That's just 10 more weeks. Whoa. I would like to go past that but we'll see how things go. I'll be happy to get to 34.

I'm sad to say that my pica craving is Ajax. I ate it as a kid and the taste for it flares up every now and then. I have a strong desire to eat it... But I won't because I think it's crazy that I want to at this age and of course because I'm preggers. Lol. M Anna - sounds like your laundry detergent/comet craving. I haven't even allowed myself to smell it... But I want to. I'm sure it's pregnancy related. My iron dipped slightly because of my daily calcium/mag supplement for uterine calmness, but I've been off since week 30 and I still eat greens once a week. I noticed that I craved ice water during that same period. Glad to know I'm not alone.

Hippy- I'd be ok with taking off the 2012 rainbows too.

Jildez- do you have a Doppler? I used mine whenever I got nervous about not feeling anything.

M Anna- I felt the same way about 34 weeks.. I can finally breathe now. Glad you got the shots.. I thinks doc forgot about them since I hadn't had any contractions after 23 weeks. I was kinda nervous that baby would come early and not be able to breathe.

I'm still womb stalking coffee. I can't believe I'm next after her. Wow.

My angel baby's due date was aug 7th last year, I can't believe that it's been almost 2 years since we started this baby journey... And now we're about to meet our rainbow.

thebyr- sadly, I would love a Doppler, but we are barely surviving financially, my husband works for the federal government and I stay home. because congress never approved funding the government, we have been dealing with furloughs every paycheck which takes us 5 dollars above the level were we qualify for wic. with our mortgage, bills and food, we are slowly running out of savings, and we are trying to prepay our mortgage bc it's looking like the republican party may shut down the government completely in October. I really try not to think about it and just have faith that it will work out, but, when I think about it, it stings.I know we live so frugallynit going out, sticking to free activities, owning only one paid for car, not using credit cards, the whole nine yards, and ive watched our savings evaporate this summer. We were hoping my husband could work some fires this summer, but he can't get away from his responsibilities here, so he hasn't been a

as for your Angel birth day , I don't know how it will be for you, or child would have been bitten around June 24th, and for about a week I felt empty and detached. my husband Kelly saying I needed to focus on our current pregnancy, but I needed to grieve, so I did.

Yep checking along too. Our little champ is doing well. The nicu med bills r coming in daily, pretty nuts but he is worth every penny!

Thebyr can u just rid your house of Ajax so the temptation isn't there? Would that help?

Where r the bump pics?

J&J, I'm trying to find the right way to ask this question without bringing on unnecessary worry - Have the doctors evaluated Cole for hypoxic brain injury? Will they be monitoring his development throughout his childhood? The reason I ask is because if he did have any issues he would probably qualify for Katie Beckett Deeming Waiver which is medicaid for a child with a disability. It would pick up all the bills from the NICU. There are no income limitations for Katie Beckett so you could make millions of dollars a year but if your child has a qualifying disability he would still get medicaid. He would also qualify for Babies Can't Wait. A friend of mine had a preemie and the issues didn't start to show up until the child was a year and a half old. Katie Beckett has been a life saver for them. My son has Katie Beckett because of his autism. Of course I hope Cole is perfect! I just wanted to make you aware of the programs.

 

Uriver, You asked me about my signature. The IEP binder club is just slang for being a momma of a child with special needs. I never attend an IEP meeting without my binder which contains every piece of documentation regarding my sons' (I have two kids with IEPs) disabilities, current level of function, progress and so on. How's your DH doing? Have you been able to communicate about his concerns and fears? Keep cooking Amberlee 3rdtri.gif

 

manna, Your pica sounds very texture based while thebyr's sounds taste/smell related. It's interesting the unusual stimulus our bodies crave.

 

jildez, My work is all federally funded projects as well. I hear you on the financial struggles. Because of the number of children we have my family is just $5 under so we get WIC. We have nothing left in savings.

J&J - I wish it was that simple. We don't even use Ajax.. But the taste comes to mind and then I have the urge to eat it. Weird right?

Yes patti, that sounds right. I'll remember the smell or taste and them bam - I want some. I don't eat it anymore... But the craving is real. At least I can talk about it without wanting it..it just strikes at certain times.

My belly is huge, my left hip and back are in shambles, my stretch marks look like complete devastation and I have carpal tunnel now and can barely use my right hand for more than two minutes at a time. What happened to my "frolicking in the sunflowers" type pregnancy? Lol

No updates? Where are you ladies?!?

Hope everyone is ok, has a great week and gets to enjoy some great weather. I'm officially home bound now. The back and hip pain is too much - I have one week of work left , so I'll be working from home. Baby in 3 weeks.... Can NOT wait. So excited! Allowing myself to let it sink in now and be in this moment. I'm finally just being pregnant instead of just trying to STAY pregnant - if that makes any sense.

Hey guys, my water broke last night while we were watching TV. Crazy! I've been up for much of the night with gushing water and intermittent contractions, but I managed to get some rest. Since baby is active and fluid is clear, we're waiting until contractions become more regular and intense before going in to the hospital. Can't wait to meet this boy!
