Jen, I'm glad you got some donuts, so cute about getting an extra stuck right in your mouth. Awesome score on the free dipes! I hope we all are so lucky.
Sarah, a bacon egg cheese biscuit sounds so good to me right now! And I have been anti egg for weeks, I'd be happy to get over that. I don't have 2 chickens out back laying me eggs every day for nothing!
Steph and greenbeing, I have the end of the day bloat too. I tell dh its his preview.
Chrissy and Caroline, I hope you feel better soon!
Kim, I'm glad you had a great night with your girlfriend. Keep hanging in there, we are thinking of you.
No urge to buy baby clothes here, but I keep looking through catalogs and wanting diapers, slings and other baby gear. However if I were in a store near some baby clothes, I am sure the urge would be unbearable.
OK, so my appointment yesterday was awesome! I am measuring perfectly for 12 weeks, bp was great and I've gained 4 pounds since my 8 week appt in my last pregnancy. Haha, I haven't weighed myself since then (August), so I'll call that my almost pre-pg weight. I got a wonderful foot bath and massage, we talked about foods I should be trying to eat, how caloric intake will be increasing in demand now, what the baby looks like now, and how he/she is devloping. I got the best feeling from her saying that my uterus feels exactly the way she would expect it to at this stage. I am very happy, and I borrowed a book that I had to make myself put down to come here and post. My next appointment is in a month.
Oh yes, Anna, I asked my mw how they figure out there's twins if a woman didn't want any u/s. She said that your fundal height will be increased throughout the pg, once you are big enough, they can usually feel two babies from the outside, sometimes can pick up 2 hb on the fetascope. She said that more often twins are suspected and there is only one baby, than being surprised by a twin. It seems that if you don't get an u/s and they don't figure on twins, you could run into possible induction talk if you consistently measure ahead. If you decide to wait it out, maybe see how the mw you plan to see feels about induction.
Happy Hump Day!
