I've added the newbie's to the list. Welcome!
I had my second CPM appointment yesterday and everything is doing just fine. Urine good, BP great, measuring just right. Still too early to hear heart tones with fetoscope. Next appointment for sure. I'm 17.5wks. I've just started to feel definet movement. I'm so busy that I don't feel it much. I do get a lot of stabbing pain in my ligaments around my lower abdomen. I feel contractions once in a while. Oh, and my belly has become obvious to the public! I keep saying 'Is it THAT obvious?". Guess I've been in a little denial
: Next appointment in 4 weeks or so.
Nursing now for us has changed. I've decided that my older boy is ready to stop. The thing is that he just does not remember how to do it correctly. He can nipple nurse but I just can't have that (ouch!) We talked about it and it was decided that he is a big boy and that he just grew out of knowing how to have 'snackies'. He's ok with it. Still asks every night to have them but doesn't ask again after it's explained that he doesn't do that anymore. I've cut my younger boy back just by asking him questions when he request 'snackies'. Are you hungery, thirsty, diaper wet etc. During the day it's pretty much any of those. By bed time only 'snackies' will do. He still has an ok latch, working on it. Got great information at a seminar I went to about off center latch. Want more info? I'll tell you all about firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of you have been mentioning that your appatite has gone up recently. I still do not have an appitite. I've always been a good eater so this has been weird. If I go too long without eating in the morning then I get the heaves and need to eat RIGHT AWAY! So I eat a little bit many time through the day. Mostly the kids left overs.
Symptoms with consecutive pregnancies: My first two were pretty much identical except for labors (both boys). This time has been very, very different. I've had morning sickness (minmal), aches, more fatigue and alot of emotional stress. Things have been very different with this third pregnancy. THe first that the other two were planned to happen (not necessarily planned at the planned time). My dh only wanted two children and I had started to think that also then boom, baby on the way. I've not had to deal with this emotional pull before and it has been pretty hard. Anyone else dealing with this?
Well, that was alot of talking. I dont' get around to posting much but do enjoy when I do and reading how everyone else is doing!
