Michelle, please forgive my shameless copying and pasting!

I'm off to see if I can get some updates on our May mamas, but does anyone know any news of them?

hi Vegan! Thanks for getting us going here in June. I'm shocked to be the FOURTH name on this list, realizing that the first two names are probably mommas already!!

I was actually trying to find news on our May mommas earlier this week and couldn't find anything - mind you, I am not a gifted researcher in these forums, so it doesn't mean they haven't posted...

WELCOME Seashelle!!!!! This is a great group - although a little on the quiet side lately...must be that everyone is busy with spring!?

Crosscat - beautiful pics of your baby girl!! Congrats!

Happy June everyone - here's hoping for a healty month for all.

Vegan - great looking new thread, thanks! When you get a chance, would you change my age to, gulp, 37?

Thanks for the bday and "happy swordfish" wishes, ladies. I had a lovely night out with DH. No one at work remembered... they never do... and I kinda purposely didn't say anything b/c... well, I dunno know why... I'm the person who always remembers everyone's bday at work but they never remember mine! (Poor me...) But overall, a great bday - what more could you want than a 3-day weekend!?

Welcome Seashelle!!

Crosscat - congrats again on your little girl!!

Things are rolling along here. I'm 20 weeks today! Likely more than halfway there (since twins usually come early). I'm starting to get the vertical line on my belly. I don't really mind it - kinda like a visual reminder of the cool thing going on in there!

My BIG u/s appt is this Wednesday so I'm super excited about that! We will see if the babies cooperate and show us if they're boys or girls!

Glad to see the thread higher on the list today. How is everyone else doing? Nony - how do you feel??

Welcome to Seashelle! Glad to have you here.

Wow, Nony! It IS soon, huh? I'm so excited for you.

Jencat - Looking forward to hearing all about your upcoming u/s.

I'm 21 weeks today and feeling pretty good. Had insomnia last night though, so I'm sleepy sleepy today.

I was tossing and turning and each time I flipped sides in the bed, the little one would start kicking. Then my cat decided to come and cuddle up to my tummy and the baby started kicking at the cat. I don't think kitty could feel it, though, she wouldn't move. This made me giggle, which woke up DH.

No one got any sleep last night!

seashelle, I've added you to the master list! I didn't get your age in there--I can add it if you care to tell!

Jencat, age is updated! I'm glad you had a great birthday. Anxiously awaiting your u/s appointment!

Cat, whew, that's quite a night! Hope you can get some rest today.

I looked for posts from the May mamas, too, and didn't find anything very recent . . . maybe they'll post something soon.

Hi Ladies!
I'm feeling pretty decent, for being in the late 7th month time...I admit, I do feel quite round all of a sudden, and a little like I could just bounce people from my path, but I am STILL just so grateful that winter is over - it's made everything better!!

Had a midwife appointment today (am going every other week now - yikes!!) and everything was fine. Baby's head is still down (AMEN!) and my blood pressure was quite low - which she was very happy with - she even called me mellow, which is funny because i'm such a chronic worrier!!

Jencat - was looking at your pictures - you look AMAZING at 20 weeks!! You are purely gaining baby and no butt...i have gained both I'm fairly confident it will all come off as I am determined to be a healthy mom with enough energy for baby, but I was not able to keep the weight from landing all over Ah well...But you do look wonderful and I hope you feel as good as you look and that those little ones are enjoying their half-way point of life in the belly! Good luck with your ultrasound on Wednesday!!!

Crosscat - that is an awesome night's story! Baby playing "kick the cat" from the womb?! lol!!

Maybe our May mamas are snuggling with and attending the babes and have no time to write??

Has the "first babe in our 30's thread" disappeared? I've looked for it but can't find it...i guess i'd like to catch back up with all our grads...

Anyone heard from halfasianmomma?? She's the NEXT one!!!

seashelle, I added you as 38 for now. If you post all about your birthday celebrations, I will *hopefully* remember to update it when the time comes!

nony, I haven't been able to find the First Babe in our 30s thread either, and I've done some searching. Too bad.

Anybody know anything about dealing with sacroiliac pain? It's an old injury that seems to be aggravated by pregnancy and I am really starting to hurt. I tried chiropractic, but it didn't really work for me. I also ordered a book called Relieving Pelvic Pain During and After Pregnancy and hoping it comes soon and has all the answers I need. I've also considered getting a sacroiliac support belt. Lovely, eh?

Welcome Mynetname!!

I've been with some of these ladies since our TTC days and have found them to be wonderful resources throughout the pregnancy!! Hope your pregnancy is going well so far!!

Vegan - that's what I was afraid of - once the baby arrives, we retreat!! Hmmm....Gosh....I'm a little sad....

RE: your sacroiliac pain - I'm afraid (happy) to say I don't even know what that is!! Does it have to do with how baby is sitting or just the fact that baby is THERE!! I hope you find some relief. I started feeling sciatic pain in the early-mid 20's weeks range and panicked because I thought it would stay with me the rest of the pregnancy!! Thankfully, baby shifted and it went away as easily as it came...that's probably my worst complaint.

That and having to pee in the middle of the night EVERY night for the last 4+ months...woah. That got old real fast

Seashelle - I liked your : That was just funny...

Halfasianmomma......keep us posted!!

Hi everyone!

Welcome seashelle and mynetname!

Catherine - sorry to hear that you are hurting. A support belt might not be pretty but if it helps you feel better, I guess that's what really matters. Maybe you can bedazzle it with a cupcake or other image of your choice (just kidding! the inside of a bedazzled belt would probably scratch you to death and be really uncomfortable).

Congrats Crosscat , and it's Wednesday, JenCat ::, so keep us posted.

Nony - maybe the May mamas have kept up in the May DDC? I'll take a look.

Nothing new here, looking forward to feeling movement but it's still early for me. I'm starting to get a distinct baby belly though, which is much preferable to the overate-at-lunchtime look I'd been sporting.

mynetname, I added you to the list! I gave you the "surprise" stork, but if you know you're having a boy or a girl, I will change it to the appropriate color!

Jencat, waiting, waiting, waiting to hear about Finnegan and LaFawnda today . . . .

Oooh, ~sweet pea~, I love the bedazzling idea! Maybe embroidery will have to do. I do hope the belt will help. Or a different chiro. I'm not really happy with the chiro care I have been getting--he doesn't seem to do much for my lower back at all, even though that's what really bothers me.

Nony, I think it's less related to baby's position than it is to overdoing it in the yard (a lot of bending for weeding and such), combined with relaxin. On the other hand, I'm glad to hear that your sciatica didn't last long!

I was stalking HalfAsianMama and found she is very busy with last-minute baby preparations. I may continue to stalk her.

Our May mamas haven't posted since April, so I don't know anything else about them.

Just a quick note from work...

we're having......




one boy...


and one girl!!!



The tech said they are long! (DH is very tall!) And the boy is kicking his sister in the face the little bugger! Both were wiggly she said.

Dr should call today if anything is askew. Otherwise, I'll confirm their healthiness with him next wed at my next appt.

More later!

Congratulations, Jencat!!!! WOOOOHOOOO!
:::
How fun for you and DH!! Looking forward to more news of good health and baby happiness!!

So glad to see some grads pop in!! Judy - I love the picture of Callie!! She's beautiful! And Amiee, thanks for the link to my much searched for thread!! I'm getting close enough that I actually feel like I should be lurking there...

Celesterra - great to see you! Checked your blog and you look great! Even with inbetween stage hair...

Random question - anybody here planning to cloth diaper? I need to do some research - heard diaperpin.com is a great resource...but I was just wondering if others here were considering that route (even part time)...

have a great night!!

Yes ma'am, we sure are! All the information out there can be a little overwhelming. Diaperpin is great, but again, overwhelming!

Here's my advice: either buy mostly what is universally popular (Fuzzi Bunz come to mind), or see if you can buy a mixed package with a return policy (seems like Jillian's Drawers has something like this) to try out or borrow from a friend or acquaintance to figure out what you like. Things like baby's build (chubby thighs? skinny tummy?), your own personal preferences, how heavily baby pees, etc. will make a difference in what you like and what works best.

I know there are a lot of grads who cloth diaper. I bet they can give some good advice, too.

hi nony, thanks! I haven't taken the time yet to catch up with everyone... looks like you're almost there! How are you feeling these days?

I'm also planning to CD - I'll be staying with a fellow CDing couple when the babies arrive, so it'll make it much easier. She's collected a full newborn stash for me already! Are you going to try it?

Vegan, sorry to hear about your SI pain. I also have an old injury (pelvic fracture), so I hear you loud and clear. Is soaking in a warm bath an option? How about massage, if chiro isn't working? I'm also thinking that maybe some easy pelvic rolls and other exercises might help - I'm sure with the added strain on your abs, the SI is taking the brunt. Can you lie on your back for a few minutes still?

Congrats again to my DDC buddy jencat!
Welcome to the thread mynetname!

Hope everyone is doing well. I'm doing fine. I took a day off work yesterday, so I feel pretty good today. Also I have pre-natal yoga tonight, and I always look forward to that.

Also, I think I experienced my first BH last night. What a crazy sensation! I'm finding pregnancy to be very exciting.

Take care, mamas.

We started CDing around week 2--we just did disposables in the very beginning. I really wasn't able to do laundry after the c-section, so glad to not have the extra load, KWIM?
Anyway, we did mostly prefolds and covers the first month. I mean the babes grow so fast, and I didn't want to get stuck with expensive NB and XS sizes. I did buy some used Kissaluvs size 0, which were awesome for holding in poop--prefolds, not so much. I only had about 6 KLs, so we saved those for middle-of-the-night changes. Trying to do prefolds when your head is spinning isn't easy.
I can recommend Bummis Whisper Wraps and Imse Vimse wool for covers. I didn't really like Proraps or Swaddlebee covers. The Proraps didn't fit her right and the Swaddlebees held the stink, even after laundering. Yuck!
After she grew out of those (at about 12lbs), we started using old-style small FBs and BGs OS (one size). We really like both. The aplix on the BGs are great because you can get a good fit and the FBs are great because they are just so easy to wash because of the snaps (don't grab hold of everything like aplix).
We are still using those, but will soon be moving up to medium FBs and medium HHs.

I should mention that I got all my used old-style FBs for free (Yay!) and got the used KLs and HHs at a pretty good price. I bought all the covers new.

Try diaperswappers.com if you are okay with used dipes.

Good luck!!!!

PM me with specific questions, if you want. I don't always check here as often.

Thank you for the dear compliments ladies.

And Poet - so glad you popped in! Thanks for the well-wishes. I think you know that I lurk in your world too cheering you on! You WILL be joining us sometime...

nony - so glad your babe is head down!

crosscat - I should have known with "cat" in your name, you were a cat lover too! But wait, that's your name too... how perfect.

Vegan - sorry to hear about your sacroiliac pain. Just from the name it sounds terrible! I hope that book comes soon and has some good advice/exercises.

Welcome mynetname!!

sweetpea - glad you're looking pregnant!!

Yep - we're planning to cloth diaper the twins... In our area there is a cloth diapering support group and they have meetings where you can check out different diapers and talk to moms and dads about what they like. Nony - maybe they have something like that near you? The group here is a chapter of the real diaper association. www.realdiaperassociation.org I have not been to a meeting yet but I'm planning to go soon. Celeste - you have your diapers already? - lucky!!

Ok, I have more fun news today. DH felt one of the babies kick tonight! On a whim I told him to put his hand on my tummy and see if he felt anything. After a few minutes, I felt a pretty good kick and looked at DH and he clearly felt it too!! That was really cool! I think he was really happy to have felt it.

Well, I have to work at 6 am tomorrow - ugh - so I better get to bed. Boy am I glad this week is over soon. Can I go to 6 hour days????

Poet, glad to see you lurking about! I hope you'll come to stay soon.

Jencat, the Real Diaper Association is totally cool. Lucky that you have a diaper support group near you. And yes, the shortened workday sounds divine!! Please, pretty please?

Celeste, wow, a pelvic fracture sounds very painful. The book did come, and the exercises seem to be helping a bit. Many of them involve lying on my back, and that's still ok. I also found a different chiropractor (have I visited every chiro in town? Almost!) today and I think he might be able to help.

Ive read that women who conceive after 35 have ahigher chance of carrying multiples. I was wondering how many in this thread, if any, has this happened to? I'm curious and secretly wanting multiples...but I wont know until my U/S next week. I say secretly wanting because DH isnt quite over the shock of us being pregnant..so I'll keep my wishes to myself and you fine ladies of course!

I think there are 3 of us on this thread having twins (if I remember right - pregnancy brain!)

My dr told me I had 8% chance of getting twins naturally and 10% on clomid. I got PG on 50 mg of clomid.

It wasn't really a surprise for us for some reason when we first found out. But then we spent the next 2 months in shock and denial! At least since they are our first we won't have anything to compare to... we'll think all babies are that much work!

I hope you get twins if that's what's in the stars for you!
