hey mamas. just starting us anew.

not much new here, besides feeling the baby move a ton now. dd is also being really cute, like many of your kids. she likes to look at the pregnancy books and find the pictures. "baby in mama's tummy!" she'll point at the umbilical cord and alternately say "baby playing with toys!" or "umbilical cord napa" (napa is finnish for belly button). hee hee.

shane, would you mind posting the list??

Thats totally adorable! My Dh is spending lots of time being a total sweety to me as well, tells my tummy goodbye when he leaves, gives me kisses on my tummy and everything. Very sweet!

I also posted about this on a seperate thread but I'm totally amazed and thrilled that my boobies are working! Getting little drops of clear fluid (clostrum I believe) and its neat!

Today I'm halfway thru! 20 weeks today! That makes me happy, but it already seems like its been FOREVER! :LOL

Aren't children so adorable!

My 3 yo/ds and I were at the midwives yesterday. He went to a table with a bunch of pamphlets on it and said "mommy, this tells you how the baby gets out!!". I said "it does?" and he said "yes, it will pop out on my toys!"

Tooooooooooo cute!

I copied the old list, but I don't know if anyone new was added. Shane is good about updating it.

I am not feeling the baby move much, but I thought I was before. So I was kind of worried, but then I just decided not to be. There is nothing I can do and I am sick of worrying. I thought I was feeling a bunch of bumping, but then it really feels like gas. Sometimes I'd even pass gas after feeling what I thought was the baby, so maybe I wasn't feeling the baby. I had an u/s on Friday and the baby was moving.

Then I was supposed to go to the OB for my appointment on Monday, and it completely slipped my mind. We were supposed to be out of town that day anyway--what was I thinking? I just went to the OB on the 7th, why do I need to go 3 weeks later??? Just to get on a scale, pee in a cup and have him listen for the heartbeat?

My daughter has been wanting to see photos of babies coming out of their moms. I exhausted all the photos I had in various books, and I think she is happy now. I even showed her the Gentle Birth Choices video. She wanted to show them to her two year old friend and explain it to her so she would understand. Don't know why she got that into her head.

I read about the colostrum. I have tried manually expressing just to see if I could get anything, but I couldn't. But then I tried sucking on my nipples and I swear some stuff came out. You think I'd know, but it wasn't like when I was nursing and could definitely tell I was getting milk out when I tried that.

Wow thats a lot of info on our growing list! One thing though could ya correct the spelling or Orion? Not a biggie or anything

Wow I should try the nipple sucking thing I bet my Dh's eyes would fall out of his head! From ah, the mental stimulation AND from his new found, confusing, fear of my "leaking" boobies! (this from the man who thinks he's going to be fighting our babe for milk? I'm so confused!)

Hi Penelope,
I read that in this point of the pregnancy, not feeling the baby for a while is normal. I've had the same concerns with mine. They say that the baby moves into positions where it is difficult to feel the movements at this size.

We get an ultrasound tomorrow! I'm excited to find out the sex, but I'm also just wanting to see that everything is ok. I haven't been feeling the baby move as much either (I know, I just wrote that thing up there!!! ) and I have been having some weird discomforts in my lower ab every day for at least a week, to where I need to sit down for most evenings. Last night dh made sure I was constantly sitting or laying, and this was the first night where I had few problems. (I started a thread on this somewhere).

Other than that, I am sneezing/runny nose like crazy. I hate drainage!

Take care, everyone

milk - well, i'm 18 weeks and not getting anything. poor dd still wants to nurse asking "mama milk? just a momo bit?" (her way of saying a little bit). my boobs are sore again and when she does nurse, she can't be getting much of anything. when i try to express, i don't get anything.

movement - with dd, when i would get worried, i would eat something sweet (like raisinettes) and in a little while she'd go nuts in there!

we watched a pbs special last night on sex and birth. dd watched a mama give birth and she was really interested. we explained how the mama was working really hard. when the baby came out, she said "oooooh, a tiny baby! cute baby, ooh." dh and i wanted to laugh and cry. how sweet!

there is a great books by dr. sears called "waiting for baby". its one of dd's favorite books. talks a lot about pregnancy. when the mama and papa finally go to the birthing center, they have a picture of their kids and it says "mama will still be thinking of you..." oh my gosh does this make me bawl! i've never been away from dd overnight ever. even her move to the crib at 18m was hard on me. we're planning a sleep over at grandma's next month, so hopefully i won't turn into a puddle of mush. i just love her so much i worry myself to death over what she'll think when we're off having the baby.

mamas with pg with #3 or above who birthed in the hospital with #2 or above...how did you handle the seperation????

Hi Folks,
Haven't posted in a while and wanted to check back in. I passed the 17 week mark last friday. My first miscariage was at 17 weeks so I am finally truly enjoying this pregnancy.
And its so nice to not be barfing. I had my quadruple screen test drawn monday. I am 40 and I figured even if the results have a high false positive rate I can use the info. Did anyone else have this test done?

Hi all!

Ruth,
I had the test done as well.... not because of age (I'm 28) but because I have a first degree relative with a neural tube disorder (my sister has Spina Bifida). I only get it to help with the preparation, in case it comes back with a high probability. I'm just curious by nature, so I get it more as a curiousity. I do know several people who have had false positives with it..... I attribute a lot of that to their docs not knowing the specifics of the test. (My doc always makes me go for an early u/s to confirm fetal age, so we can make sure the test is being done at the right time. ) They don't do the test here unless there is a good reason, or if you ask for it. I'm glad about that.

I'm 18.5 weeks. My m/s is pretty much gone. What a relief!! I'm still very tired, but I find that curbing a bit as well. I still haven't gained any weight - even though it looks like a swallowed a basketball and my boobs are at least one size larger. With ds#1, by this point, my wedding rings didn't fit anymore..... with this one, they are falling off they are so loose. It's amazing how different each pg can be. Maybe this is my girl?

to everyone......

Hi everyone
I am now 20.5 weeks - it seems like this pregnancy is going so quickly... I can't get over it. When I was pregnant with ds, time seemed to just tick by - now it is rushing by.
I always find, like mamarsupial, that if I have some juice or something sweet, baby usually starts to move. Most of the time I am rushing around and don't notice. The time I notice baby 'dancing' the most is when I am lying down with my son at bedtime.

Is there anyone else in this group who is currently cosleeping with a child? My son is 19 months old and we have slept together since he was born (Dh sleeps in another room and joins us most weekends...). I am just wondering how things are going to work when baby arrives....


Hugs to all,
Emma

I'm so relieved that I'm not the only one feeling less movement! (I'm at week 18.) I was starting to get worried (shouldn't I know better by the time I'm on my 4th baby?!) but I'll give him a week or two and see how it goes. Here in Sweden, you don't see the midwife between 12 and 20 weeks unless you're high risk, which is longer than I'm used to...lots of time to wonder about things! No one has even felt my uterus yet!

Dh has been trying to listen to baby's heartbeat with a toilet paper roll. My sis (who's 2/3 of the way through a midwifery program) says it's possible to hear with a tp roll by 20ish weeks. Has anyone tried this?

We'll be back on US soil a week from tomorrow, and the stress of our move will largely be over. 'Course then I'll be involved in the finding a job--place to live--midwife--transitioning three kids kind of stress. Still, I'm looking forward to being home.

Nice to hear how things are going with all of you.

I'm almost 21 weeks now, and feeling lots of movement (dh has even seen movement - probably about a week and a half ago now), so baby is very active.

I felt this baby early - around 12 weeks, I think. But I went through over a week around 16-17 weeks when I didn't feel the baby AT ALL. It really worried me, but - like Sweden - here in the UK you dont' see a midwife between 12-20 weeks unless you are high risk, so...

All of that to say...baby is moving a lot now, and it's great! It must be very common to 'lose' movement between 15-18 weeks for some reason. It seems to have happened to so many mamas here (or perhaps we are just the ones writing about movement?).

No, I haven't tried that, Brittany. I had heard it is possible to hear the heartbeat with a stethoscope, so I thought I might pick one up since I know where I can get one for not much money. Maybe I should just try a tp tube.

I had the AFP tetra. The OB had said was the triple screen, but when I went in for the ultrasound, I was sent to the lab to have bloodwork drawn. I looked at the sheet and it wasn't testing for everything in the triple screen, and I don't know what the quadruple tests for. I wasn't going to have it done, but I figured I'd just do it since I didn't see my OB that day. The woman who took my blood did a really good job, didn't have to use my hand, and I didn't even feel the needle go in! So now I know that you actually can get blood out of my arm, which was good to know.

My dh hasn't been able to hear the heartbeat, but he can hear the kicks, especially when the babe kicks the tube, which he seems to like to do! He says it makes a very distinct tapping sound. It's been nice to have dh feeling for the baby and getting a sense of what's going on in there, especially since it'll be at least a few weeks before I set up a new midwife. If you do try it, you're supposed to listen without touching the tube, just the ear on one side and the belly on the other. Though I'm sure a stethoscope or a Pinard Horn would be a better bet. I spotted some really lovely Pinard horns here: http://www.1cascade.com/display/Fetoscopes/ scroll to the last picture. My sister says they prefer plastic horns and those cost less than five bucks at some sites. (But the wood ones are so much more appealing, I can imagine keeping it out even after the baby is born.)

I did the triple screen with my first three, but didn't this time. No special reason, just never arranged it in the rush to arrange so many other things (like health insurance in the US, that took some doing).

Hi Everyone,
I guess I am joining late...
I announced our pregnancy but then have been busy and not checking in...
I am due with our third baby on September 17th.
Just to give you an update:
#1 Baby - Emma May 30th - June 14th 2000
#2 Baby - Cameron July 22nd 2001
# 3 Baby - ?? - Due Sept. 17th

We are going for our ultra sound today and I am hoping to find out the gender...a bit anxious.
There is a certain amount of anxiety just having another baby, but I think there will be some emotion if it is another girl.

We heard the heartbeat clearly at our last appointment last week, it was 158bpm.
This baby does not move very much, so I am trying to not be worried all the time, but the other two were big movers.

Anyway, just wanted to join in...

20 weeks and still in skinny jeans,
Envision

Yay, tomorrow is twenty-one weeks!
For the past two weeks, I've been nervous about not feeling it move. I began to worry but then Dh was listening to my stomach and he heard it. He had his head on my stomach and says to me all serious-like, 'Did you move your tummy?' I said no. He said 'It must've poked me then.' Yeah, because I don't have any muscles in my stomach that poke, as far as I know. I don't understand why I can't feel it, I always thought I was very in tune with my body. But I have been so gassy lately, so that could be it.
I have a midwife appt next week, which should ease my mind.
I am so round now! I *finally* bought some maternity shorts. I got a bunch of tshirts from the thrift store, but I didn't have anything to wear with them. Plus, my younger sister borrowed me two pairs of her pants from her heavier days, so it's nice to have clothes again. I was down to wearing the same pair of gym pants everyday.
And, Dh and I bought a washer and dryer (yay CDing), which should be here today! He says it makes him feel like a grown-up (and us having a baby didn't?)

We went for our ultra sound this afternoon.
I drank too much and had to let a cup &1/2 out...man it's hard to stop peeing after you have started!!

Anyway, we got to see the baby and asked about the gender...and as best as ultra sounds can tell...it's a girl!!
I am excited but wondering what it will be like to have a girl that is not Emma.
Nevertheless, I am off Sunday to see what cute dresses that Baby Gap have...:

We saw everything and she has a healthy heart...a great feeling.

Well off to answer the phone

Let's see... I'm 16 weeks today. YAY!

I went in for my appointment last Monday (14w4d) while my mom was here visiting from CA. She went with me. It took my OB a while to find the HB and while he was pressing on my with the doppler I had some stabbing pains from the other side of my uterus. He said that was normal, but I'd never had that kind of reaction before... anyhow, heard the HB when he got to the midline, 138BPM. My next appointment isn't until the 19th of this month, I believe. At that time we'll discuss doing the quad screen, however I never did the triple with any of my other kids when it became available... I don't know if I'll do it or not. Why stress unnecessarily if the results aren't "normal" when we wouldn't do anything about it anyway, ykwim?

He wants me to have an u/s within a week of my next appointment, and that'll be the only appt. that my dh will go to. He's *so* over coming with me to appointments!

I'm occasionally feeling the baby moving, but not often enough to be sure that it's not gas... I'm also starting to show, however being already 100+ pounds overweight means that I only know that I'm pregnant... I can barely fit into my big, baggy pants and told dh that I may actually need to shop for maternity clothes this time around.

We're watching my sugar and blood pressure levels carefully too. I have to monitor constantly and absolutely hate it. Oh well. I was also told that I may need to see a perinatologist at around 20 weeks just to rule out any possibility of problems with my or the baby's health. We'll see.

I guess that's it for me now!

I'm with you on this one. I'm just about 255 pounds right now. I actually haven't gained any weight, but my jeans just aren't fitting that well. I wear them anyway, and some maternity pants that my friend lent me. I have a pair of XL maternity pants--In Due Time brand, and they actually fit (OK, a little snug in butt and thighs, but not uncomfortable). Yet if I order from Motherhood Plus online, according to their measurements I'm off the chart for even a 3X. So I'm guessing their sizes run small?

The lady who owns a little maternity shop not too far from home told me she had ordered plus sized clothing and she'd give me a call when they are in, but I haven't heard from her. It is taking a long time!

I haven't been paying all that much attention to the baby moving. If I'm really still and lay on my back in the late afternoon, I can sometimes feel it, though, so it doesn't really worry me.

I'm starting to approach filling out my maternity clothes, and becoming steadily more scatterbrained and less able to concentrate on much of anything not baby-related!

Amywillo, Motherhood clothes ran *big* on me! I usually wear a 3x (at 240lbs here) and the 2x's fit me perfectly! Don't know if that helps at all but I thought I'd throw it out there...

I just got to meet my friend's baby (6 weeks old) last night... he was in the nicu for quite awhile, but is ok now, thats why it took so long to meet him. What an adorable baby! Of course aren't they all? I got to hold him for just a minute and he's just TINY! 6 pounds 5 ounces (and he was full term! ). I so can't wait until September!!

I am perhaps showing just a *tiny* bit if I wear the right maternity pants and shirt.. ones that flow over the whole area work out... my upper tummy is bigger, I can tell that, but down low where the baby is is just the same still... I can't wait until strangers can tell!

Hello All!

Sorry I did not get to coping the list over.

I did not have the screening test done. I did not know that it was not called the quad test. Didn¡¦t it used to be the triple? I have opted to only have the routing blood work done because of state laws in CT. That will be it for any type of test. I¡¦m even opting out of using the dopler to hear the fetal heart tones. So I have yet to hear them. Possibly at my next appointment in few weeks.

I do not feel much movement at all. I think I feel something small here and there every few days but nothing definitive. It is a little uncomfortable to stand up from the chair at times though.

Oh, and my rings are falling off also. I actually got them sized up after the birth of my 1st because after 6 months my fingers had not gone back to normal. So now my ring it too big may have to resize it again ļ Maybe this could be a girl like someone said. I have two boys and this pg has been very different.

We coslept with our baby and toddler when #2 arrived. This time around it will be baby #3 with daddy and mommy. At this point in time the boys fall asleep in their own room (shared) but come into the big bed with mommy during the night. Daddy ends up in the boys room for the remainder of the night. The Queen bed is just too small for two adults and one child. When we had baby and toddler I just made sure that baby and toddler just did not sleep right next to each other in the beginning.

Other than that things have been busy with the boys. My car decided to stop working today and I'm now without one. I've had to ask a friend to come pick THeodore up and take him to school and bring him home. Very nice but what a bother! Hope I have my car back tomorrow.

Take care -
