Sorry you are getting so uncomfortable. re: big baby=big belly My mom was so huge with me that she could not fit into maternity clothes, she was bigger around her belly than she was tall. When she ate, she could fit her plate, cup and silverware on her belly :LOL The dr. tried, but he couldn't hear more than one heart beat. She was always dealing with comments about the humongous kid she was carrying. Then, in labor, her water broke naturally and she gave 1 (she says maybe 2) pushes and out I came in a gush of water. 5 and a half pounds! So, you never know....
BTW, what kind of maxi pads can you freeze with witch hazel and how would one go about doing that? I've packed the baby's bag, but I have no idea (okay some idea) what to pack what to pack for me. I need to make myself a checklist.
midwife~- that belly cast sounds beautiful
I hope that you are able to post pics!
Brandi~ glad you're feeling better. So, will you still have an u/c hb if the babe is breech?
I'm 35 weeks and 1 day- other than the swelling in my feet and ankles, I feel pretty good. My belly is huge and I love it!
I feel like a goddess statue- I envision a picture of the whole world fitting on my belly, or the pic on the cover of Conscious Conception.... I've been doing the nesting thing too. Last week I took the whole fridge apart and cleaned it. I've rewashed the baby's dipes and am trying to organize all of his blankies, clothes, stuffed animals. There is just so much stuff- I don't know where to put it all! I think I am going to have to put up some shelves. (sigh) Hopefully Home Depot will be having a good sale...
