Sorry to hear about the leg cramps. I've always heard bananas are good for leg cramps. I guess it's the potassium that may help.
For those worried about TUMS, I don't know. While I don't think they're the best form of a calcium supplement. If they help with heartburn, shoot, take 'em. I doubt any of us are chewing up too many of them anyway. I think I've probably consumed about 4 during this whole pregnancy. And I don't feel bad about it at all.
I'm so sad to hear about Nemmer. Big hugs to her.
Yesterday, I had an OB appointment. This office does not do the typical diagnostic ultrasound at 20 weeks. However, they offer a quick check if you want to find out the sex at your 30 week appointment. Well, I didn't want to know the sex so I figured I wasn't getting an ultrasound, but then they offered to give me a picture and I said ok. Please don't flame, I know how some feel about the use of ultrasound for shallow purposes. It's funny, because I typically feel the same way. However, it was just too tempting. So I did it and it was really neat. The doc took a picture of the baby's foot. It's sooo cute. Just like a little foot print.
All in all, I'd say it lasted about 3 minutes. It was very fast, just to get a peek.
Many of you may remember that at my 22 week appointment, my fundal height was 6 cm too large. Well, now at 30 weeks, I'm measuring 32 cm. So, I guess I'm evening out. And I gained 1 lb in the last two weeks. So, I feel pretty good about that. For a few months in the second trimester, I was gaining like 9 lbs/month. EEK. Since then, I've been walking and trying to watch it with the junk. And I think it's helped. So far have gained about 29 lbs. YIKES!
Also, ladies, my next appointment will be at 33 weeks. My first was born at 34 weeks due to PROM. I'm not really worried about it happening early again, just I guess anxious. I think it's like the anxiety one might feel more toward 40 weeks. KWIM. I just am wondering WHEN? Like waiting for an expected phone call.
Sorry such a long post. Rambling mostly.
