This thread is for members of the ONE thread from the Trying to Conceive forum. Some of you have started similar threads in the DDCs but this is an all-inclusive, cross-DDC thread. We have all made connections and friendships with ladies who got BFPs before or after us so this can be a central thread for us to catch up and for those on the other side of the One thread to keep up with us!

 

In bold, please tell me: Name, Due Date, how long it took you to conceive and what you went through to conceive, what "number" child this will be, and anything else you would like to add.

Hi guys! I've been MIA... don't quite know what happened there, it's like I've got a baby or something Sheepish.gif

 

I haven't been a thread keeper before, so please bear with me if I suck at it. Stephanie is 4 1/2 months old now and still a ton of fun. The last few mornings I've woken up thinking I could hear a rat scratching around in the wall, but this morning I discovered Stephanie is the culprit! She likes the sound it makes when she scratches the side wall of the little pod she sleeps in next to me... it's super cute, she's using her pointer finger and staring at it intently as she scratches, ha ha! Now that I know it's not a rat, it's sort of a nice noise to wake up to... she's happy so I can lounge for a few minutes before she realizes I'm awake and demands her breakfast!

 

Here she is with her big sister and brother:

Thanks for the new thread! 

 

Mummoth - Cute picture! My two DD's will be 7 and almost 11 when this baby is born. I notice your age gaps are similar. How are they with the baby? Any specific challenges you care to share?

The kids are great with her, the only 'issue' we've had is that they both want to hold her at the same time sometimes. My son tends to think he should be able to move around with her and hold her in ways he thinks he's seen us do (but he doesn't think about what if she arches her back or lunges forward, and his hand isn't in just the right spot to prevent that) so I've hurt his feelings a few times correcting him.

 

My son really wanted her to be a boy, but we didn't know until she was born and then it didn't matter to him. They want to see her as soon as she wakes up every morning, as soon as they get out of school, and last thing before they go to bed. They want to hug her when they're hurt, not me anymore! I've heard a few complaints about her crying, but in more of a "I wish she felt better" way that a "make her shut up" way. My daughter asked me not to tell her when the baby gets a needle because it upset her that her sister was in pain.

 

One thing I highly recommend is to have the big kids bake a birthday cake... we just got a cake mix, decorating supplies and a '0' candle and let the kids have at it. They thought that was really fun and it helped pass the time while I was in labour.

Mummoth - thanks for the new thread and that is SUCH a cute picture!  I love hearing about how awesome your other children are, too.  This will be my first, so I won't have any experiend with that for a long time.  A birthday cake is a great idea, I am thinking about having a birthday party even though I don't have any other kids... hmmm. Maybe I will change my mind after he is here and decide it is too much work hahahah :)

 

Well, I had another doctor appointment on Thursday to check me again and see if I had progressed any.... and.............. no. :(  I am still 1cm and even the doctor started feeling like I was less than that, this time.  Very depressing!  After my appointment, I spent the next 24 hours in a major depressed mood.  I know it's the hormones and all that but it really bummed me out.  I have been walking and walking and walking and he has dropped some (she even said he felt lower, so that is good) and I guess I just expected something more to have happened. 

 

My due date is next Thursday, so I am definitely hoping that something has happened by then.  I am not in the super depressed mood anymore but I am still just waiting around.  I am trying to "enjoy" these last few days but this hasn't been an easy pregnancy, so I really haven't enjoyed any of it much.  What I would enjoy is having my little boy here, finally.  I can't sleep now because I am always super congested, and have been for the last 9 months, so I would prefer to lose sleep over a baby than my stupid congestion. Plus I am gaining like 5 pounds a week now (WTF?) and getting really swollen so I am ready to be done with all of this.

 

Ugh.  Anyways.  I can wait, but I am just so over this pregnancy.  I am ready for the next chapter in my life.  Ok, rant over. :)

janelody~ I totally understand, it's hard to live in the moment when you know something awesome is coming soon! Tell that boy that the best present ever would be if he was OUT before Mother's Day!

 

And thanks to all about my kids... I really like my son in that one, especially. He looks a bit more like a little boy from that angle!

I feel ya on being tired of waiting, janellody. I'm due on the 11th. It wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't so uncomfortable, but as it is I can't really enjoy these last few free days. I wish I could bottle them up and save them for later.

I assume your doctor has checked you out for preeclampsia? The sudden weight gain and swelling are possible signs of it, but I'm sure your doctors are paying attention. 

 

An update for the list - BubbleMa had her baby! Born May 5.

Thanks KM84, I updated the first post, you're at the top of the list!

 

This part of the year is so hard for me... this morning, my son is trying to pretend that his sore throat is bad enough to stay home (no fever, he can eat no problem, and he's talking and playing) and I really wish I could let them stay home from school. I'm ready for it to be summer! Next September, they're starting a new thing where they go for 3 months and then take a month off, year round... I think I'll like that. Well there, he just found the blue jellos I bought them for school snacks... he's over it.

 

I don't know if you guys remember, but she taught us how to say "nay nay" for nursing at around 6 weeks. She made that noise anyway when she was crying so I started saying it and she yells "NAY!" at me when she realizes I'm heading for the change table. Well, she's trying to talk like crazy now, and her favourite word is 'hungry'. It comes out like gunga, gungy, hunga, unga... she's still working on the pronunciation, LOL! I think we know what her priorities are.

Good morning everyone.. yes still here and waiting :)  I just noticed it shows my due date as the 12th on the this thread, it was actually changed to the 10th, but either way it's close...  So this Thursday is my official due date and I hope that I have something to show for it.  SOME progress would be nice.  I am spending time walking each day, but maybe I am not walking enough?  I walk for about 45 minutes, maybe I should do that a few times each day instead?  To answer your question, yes I am checked at each appointment for preeclampsia but I am always fine.  For some reason I am just having a hard time not gaining weight at the end here and getting really swollen, so hopefully when he comes out I will deflate!! 

 

I hope these ladies post some baby pictures for us when they get all settled in :)  I would love to see the babies!  KM84 - we are so close on due dates, I hope we both have some good news here soon..!!!

 

Mummoth - that is very strange, when I was in school forvever ago (I am 29 now) they always talked about doing that 3 months on, 1 month off thing, but it never took off.  I totally forgot about it until you just now mentioned it.  Sounds like an interesting plan, I never wanted it because I didn't want to spend summer months in school.  That will be interesting to see how it all turns out!

One tired mommy -- admitted Thursday evening after my doctor's appointment when we discovered I had preeclampsia, cervadil all night to soften cervix, then pitocin Friday morning.  After trying for an hour to do it naturally, I broke down and got an epidural.  Then late Friday night when I was fully dilated, I pushed for 2 hours only to discover he wasn't budging and his head was stuck and we had to do a c-section. SO all in all, everything went opposite of my birth plan BUT I am not gonna cry over it, because I got beautiful baby Deacon and we couldn't be happier!!

Awwww, what a cutie! Congrats!

 

We're heading up to my parent's cabin for the weekend. Why, I don't know... I'm already looking forward to getting home again and we haven't left yet! It's going to push me over the edge to having PPD, I've already told DH I'm not going anywhere else this year. Just this once for the kids, then I'm done.

Hi MamanF! I am here, doing well at about 35w. I keep worrying about my blood pressure etc. (just because it's a little on the high side when I'm not pregnant, and I'm overweight) but it hasn't gone up yet. Hopefully I'll be able to hang in there all the way until baby is ready to be born. Otherwise I feel good... just tired, and I haven't really been exercising for the past couple weeks, so I need to step that up. I need to get more sleep while I can. Last night I did at least get myself to go to bed before DH.

 

My best friend just had her baby this morning (a 7 lb 6 oz boy). I can't wait to be done with my work stuff for the day so I can hopefully go back down to the hospital and visit them again...

 

How are you doing?

Well, I'm only 27 + weeks and I'm already counting down the days until I can go on maternity leave. 39 business days to go (not counting weekends, stat holidays and my week long vacation coming up) LOL. But who's counting.

 

I have a lot of pubic bone pain - turns out it's actually ligaments. We just set up our pool so hopefully that will offer some relief. It's not heated though so I have to wait for the sun to do its job and warm that sucker up. I am not getting into 65 degree water LOL.

 

Other than crying with ANY emotion and the pubic pain, I'm doing pretty darn good. It's hard to believe I'm at the point where I go to the midwife every two weeks! This pregnancy has been flying by.

 

Hope your BP stays put and that you're able to get a lot of comfortable rest for the next 5 weeks!

Hi, everyone. Man, I suck! I've been completely MIA.

 

Everyone's so pregnant, it's awesome!!!

 

Congrats on baby Deacon!!!

 

Life is crazy. DH and I bought a house, moved into it a few weeks ago... I'm still in school full-time (UNTIL DECEMBER, WOO!) and work full-time, so I hardly have a second to myself.

 

Little Conner Dean is 7 months old now, 15lbs, 28". He's a little guy, but gosh, is he growing. He army crawls, sits up by himself, laughs, has two teeth, and he's just awesome (I like babies so much more than newborns, LOL!). Here's some pictures for you ladies:

Well, I think you can be confident that he will be adorable forever, because he is still just so cute! lol.gif I can't believe how time has flown. Teeth and everything, holy cow!

Hi everybody-

 

Jane!  Congrats on your gorgeous boy!  He is such a cutie- he reminds me of my little guy when he was a little.  I'm sorry your birth didn't work out how you wanted, but I'm glad Deacon has arrived safe and sound.  (And will you be mad if I just put Deacon on my list of names?  DH and I haven't talked about them at all and we really need to get crackin'.  As soon as I read it I thought CUTE!)

 

CD's mom- Your little guy just gets cuter and cuter.  I can't believe that he's already so big and developing so fast!  I loved the 5-9 month stage with my Colin- they're so much fun and have such big personalities in their little bodies.  

 

As for me, I'm almost 34 weeks pregnant.  Hanging in there.  I have the same pelvic pain that you do, Maman F!  It's MISERABLE.  Especially when I try to change positions in bed.  It's really messed up my sleeping- between having to pee 5 times a night and coming to full consciousness everytime I move because of the pain, I'm lucky to get 2 hours in a row.

 

The nausea seems to be returning as well- I'm still on a lot of medicine for it, but it's discouraging nonetheless.  I didn't realize that my feeling "good" for a few weeks there was actually "good" because, frankly, I've felt pretty crappy all along.  Poop.

 

So.... I'm ready for this pregnancy to be over, but I sure as hell am not ready to actually have a baby!  Quite the conundrum!

 

 

How is everyone else?!?!?  

 

What up, Maman F?!?!?!?

That is exactly how it is for me, too! And I'm only at 29 weeks! My DH isn't getting much sleep with me moaning and whining as I turn over in bed every few hours (or less) or try to get up to pee (for the 10th time). We have one of those tempurpedic beds so I don't even have bounce to help me out...

 

I'm so sorry you're still sick! OMG, I don't know how you are still sane after everything you've been going through. 6 more weeks(ish) and at least you'll have some relief. 

 

My newest thing is that everything and everyone irritate me. I mean to the point where I can feel my blood pressure rising and I actually want to yell at people. It's out of control. I snapped at a coworker (although she deserved it but I would never normally be so unprofessional), and I WANT to snap at my DH, my kids, everyone! AHhhh! I want to check in to a luxurious hotel for the next few months and be left entirely alone.

Maman F, I am convinced that you and I are the same person, because every time you post anything I read it and say "Yup!"  Right down to the Tempuredic bed!

 

I had a TOTAL. MELTDOWN. last night.  Just could not stop crying, and I'm not really a crier.  It started because I had to work a half day, so I was up super early and rushed around all morning and early afternoon and that is what typically sets off my feeling sick.  When I have to go-go-go.  Then DS woke up an hour early from his nap, and I had only drifted off about 45 minutes before, so I had to be up and moving before my stomach was ready to be up, too.  So I parked DS in front of the TV and tried to drift in and out, which just made me feel crappier.  By the time DH got home from work I was hungry and crabby but didn't want to eat ANYTHING because everything sounded gross, yet I knew I was hungry.

 

So I started crying, and that made me throw up.  A lot.  Which made me cry more.  Then I started thinking about my dog, who died in November.  Ummm..... whaaaaa?  I mean, I think of her every day, but my emotions were so strong it felt like it had just happened!  I was just so hopeless and helpless and tired and sick and DONE.  

 

But then.... I fell asleep propped up against three pillows because I still felt nauseous and had a little heartburn, and I had the best sleep in weeks.  I don't think I woke up to pee once.  The pelvic pain never woke me up either, because I don't think I turned over or changed positions once all night.  I didn't exactly feel great this morning or anything, but I definitely felt better.

 

Maybe my guardian angel... or my angel dog???... decided to cut me some slack and give me a break.

 

 

And I actually had a good moment today.  DH, DS and I registered at Babies R Us, not because we actually expect anyone to buy anything for baby #2 but so I could get coupons and free samples.  shy.gif  One of the free samples was a size newborn Pampers diaper.  We use the earthy-crunchy, plain, free-of-everything 'sposies, so I had forgotten how GOOD plain ol' Pampers smell!  And how small the newborn diapers are!  I opened up the little package and pulled out this teeny-tiny little diaper, and the smell hit my nose and all of a sudden I remembered that not EVERYTHING about babies totally suck.  It actually brought tears to my eyes.... good tears.  A little diaper and that clean smell of Pampers.  Amen.

 

So that's my novel.  Maman F- I'm not surprised that your pubic bone pain has started early- so did mine.  I washed all the windows in my house on Easter weekend, and that is what kicked off my pain, so it's been a long time for me, too.  My midwife also told me that it gets worse with each pregnancy.

 

Scowgirl- how are you doing?  Are your HCPs still being supportive?  Now that I'm reaching the end all of my docs seem to be getting more nervous out of nowhere.  I keep thinking..... this pregnancy has sucked since day 1.  Why are you all starting to freak out now?

Hi there. I'm new here. I'm a recent graduate of The ONE TTC thread. I'm due with baby #2 in early March. We're really excited, even though it's so early (I'm 6 weeks). I look forward to getting to know you all and hear about your happy births!

Welcome, MayDayMom! 

 

I'm glad someone resurrected this thread!

 

 

As for me..... I'm 37 weeks pregnant and just discovered that I have hemmorhoids.  irked.gif  I really hate being pregnant.
