Maryann, do you feel like the baby is lower? That's big.

Amber Lion- yeah for naps and for DH appreciating your efforts/being at home.

Orion- glad you are feeling better, and I'm glad you have help now too.

Maryann, that is big...do you feel like baby has dropped? Breathing easier but harder to walk? The good thing is, even if baby did drop, that's not a terribly good indication of when labor will begin...just that things are preparing and we're all far enough along for that to be ok. You seem a little concerned by the sound of your post. Try not to worry (I know...easier said than done).

Actually, I don't think it's big. Mine has dropped already. It's not common for second or more babies to drop early but it happens.

Well today was a very long day!!

I went to 5 different stores and my feet are killing me! They feel like the size of a balloon even though they aren't swollen at all. I was able to get our monthly grocery shopping out of the way, plus I picked up the last of the fabric that I think I'll be needing to finish my ever growing sewing list. Oh and I must say that I love remnant bins!!! Oooh and I learned how to make fabric covered buttons today...yeah yeah, I know it isn't hard but they are so cute!!

I also picked up some Always Night time pads (which have to be new!), new cheapie undies (and who knew cheap undies were so comfy!!), some travel toothpaste and deodorant and my special soap for PP Now I just need to get a few more things and I think my BC bag will be all packed!!

Now I'm going to beg DH to put the groceries away and I'm going to semi put my feet up and get to some sewing in my new chair

Okay, well mine are! They look so much like ugly croc feet I was considering reprising Traceyky's post. I have confidence that no one's feet are as gross and wide and puffy as mine. It's my one pregnancy complaint. My feet. They hurt. They're hot. They are huge and won't fit into any of my shoes except for my ugliest pair. It makes me feel better that my MW is unconcerned. I have perfect blood pressure and no symptoms of pre-e. My feet swelling is worse at night, no in the morning and I have not swelling in my hands or face.

I might go stick them in a bucket of ice water. Ech.

Puffy size elevens here, beat that!



Wow, around 4 oclock today I started feeling really strange. . . I think the baby dropped big time. All, the stresses are in a different palce, and I have new pressure in my bowel/bladder/pelvis that weren't there before. The feet also seem lower, and are now kicking me right where a round ligament must be, and it hurts!!!!! It's a new feeling for me. DS never really 'dropped' as an event anyway, he just kind of grew down into my pelvis very gradually. Very weird. . .we'll see.


BTW, I've totally had it with people saying, 'Girl, you'll never make it to your due date, you know that, right?' How in the heck would they know? :

I think I heard every stupid one tonight at church, including 'You're ready to pop!' Real. Funny.

Funny, I have people telling me every single day, "Wow, you really dropped!" Even my chiro says it every week.

OH!! Speaking of the chiro - I decided to call up this morning and let them know what was going on. They said they could accomodate me and modify the adjustment so that I didn't have to lie on my belly or have the table drop. I said, ok, I'll keep my appointment then.

Well, I get there, and explain to the actual Dr what I was thinking after what happened last week...and he was like, well, I can't really do anything if you don't want to lie on your belly and/or have the table drop. I cant do the adjustments. I was like, alright then, well, I don't know what to tell you. He asked if I was alright lying on my belly for a moment so he could check to see if I needed an alignment, and coincidentally I didn't need any adjustment in my sacrum at all? I mean, does this sound fishy or what? Whatever, I take it with a grain of salt. He did adjust my neck and upper back which now feel great, I just think it's odd that miraculously I didn't need my sacrum adjusted even though every single week I go there he talks about how out of alignment it is.

The only thing I can think of is that I didn't spend a week sitting at my desk at work, or lifting boxes at work, which could be what usually causes my need for adjustments.

Dunno. Just thought it was odd.

Work kicked my ass today, btw. SO GLAD I only have 2 days left!:

I don't know. I don't really feel like babe dropped. I was worried because things feel... odd... down there. But I looked in the mirror and everything looked the same to me. And I still feel squished up top... So who knows. I am just really wanting to hang on these last 5 weeks.

^Very odd chiro appt Carrie. My chiro can adjust me w/o me laying on my tummy or using a drop table (she doesn't even have one). I'm shocked that he didn't think your sacrum needed adjusting with all the changes happening in your body combined with the modified bed rest. That'd be the one place I'd think would need it the most. I know my SI is always out of alignment when I get to my appts (about every 10 days).

that chiro appt. sounds weird to me too. do they have the special pillows for when you lie on your stomach? my chiro has to use 2 of them now (yeh, im that big). i don't know..i love my chiro but i have never been to her w/o leaving feeling better....

i am on day 2 of being sick as a dog. im not sure what it is. ds *may* have RSV so it could be that but they screwed the test up yesterday and i was too sick to take him back today. thankfully the office is across from the chiro. and we are both going tomorrow for adjustments so ill get the test redone then.

being sick this far in preg. really really sucks.

Passionate writer, I'm sorry to hear that you're feeling rotten. How frustrating that they messed up the RSV test too. It's early for RSV, however, so I'll cross my fingers for you that it's not.

Carrie- even in early pregnancy my chiro never put me on my stomach. That sounds really odd.

AAM: I found out yesterday what I'd suspected: My health coverage which includes chiro ran out Aug. 31 b/c I'm no longer on the payroll of my employer. I need to call and see if DH's plan has miraculously added chiro. If not, my chiro said he'd be flexible with charges/payments, but I hate to ask. Still I need to get my hips into alignment. I put aside a bit of extra money into a personal savings account for these types of medical "surprises" before I stopped getting paychecks, so perhaps I can just tap into that right now.

DH finally got it. We were talking with DD last night and I said "only three more weeks until the baby is at term." He was incredulous, although I've been saying it since Sunday. He replied "three weeks is nothing. You need to pack your bag!" I was going to work on it soon, and need to go back to town today anyway to get his birthday present, so I might as well go ahead and pick up the items I need to have in there which don't currently exist in my house.

Last night a sound jolted me awake and I tried to sit up normally, but of course cannot. Now I have a nagging pain just under my ribs, between my breasts (can't remember the anatomical name for that little bit of bone dangling at the end of the front ribcage.) Hopefully it goes away today.

I should clarify for those concerned about chiro care and laying on the tummy....
My chiro puts me on my tummy for the first part of the adjustment (but doesn't HAVE to adjust that way, it just works well for me). She has a table that allows plenty of room for my belly in the middle....the center portion is adjustable and she just lowers it for me instead of having it flush for non-pg adjustments. I start standing up facing the table and she lowers the table and I just lower down with it. It's perfectly safe and SO comfy. I enjoy going just so I can lay on my tummy for a few minutes!

I'm thinking about skipping my chiro appt today. I just don't feel like being messed with and nothing hurts. I am going to work out in a few minutes so that could possibly change.

I've got a bunch of sewing to do today. I'm excited! I love projects.


Oh and btw- if anyone needs any still I found some great sleep type bras at Tjmax yesterday. Just super stretchy microfiber bralettes. I got 2 for 5$

Good buy Changed! I'm definitely in need of some sleeping bras as the ones I wore pre-pg are FAR too small! No TJ Maxx here but we have a Marshalls and I think that's the same thing.

Changed- what sizes do they run? I do need a very stretchy bra type thing , but I'm an H. . .

Carrie- that was very weird. It sounds like my old chiro who just adjusted everyone the same way regardless of what they need. He was just a stupid stubborn doc, and refused to think beyond his own reasoning.

Can anyone in your area recommend a better chiro? There are probably 100 ways to adjust someone, a good one should be able to find a way that works for you. My belly did not fit into the sculpted pillow my old chiro had, not after about 7 mos. And I agree with Tararae, you DO need adjusted everywhere especially on bed rest.

Audsma- we'll be paying out of pocket for chiro for a while too. Mine's pretty inexpensive, but if I go every week till the baby's born, that still adds up!


Well, I defiantely dropped, but I'm sleeping better. I think I've had an increase in mucus too, so who knows? Maybe this baby is comeing sooner than I think!

Yep, my chiro has the same type of table and it's sooooo comfortable. She keeps telling me I'm going to go early. I have no idea why. And she told me I could come in for a foot manipulation to speed things along when I'm closer

Tiger Lily, my chiro keeps telling me how easy and quick my labor will be too! Hopefully not early though, for either of us!

Holy cow Maryann!! Big news! Congrats to your Dad (as long as you're ok with the whole thing ).

AAM: Had my 34wk appt today. We saw the CNM since the OB didn't have anything open tomorrow and isn't there on Thurs. She took TONS of time to talk to us about our birth plan and let us know what she and the OB thought was unnecessary to have in there as well as rewording some of it so as not to offend the nursing staff and create a good relationship with them so we can get what we want. So, DH and I will revise and take in another "draft" to our next appt in 2wks. The feedback we got was very helpful and will help us create a friendlier birth plan. I also talked to her (CNM) about testing for GBS today. She said it's normally done between 35-37wks and asked why I wanted it early. I explained that if it were + I'd want time to treat naturally and retest. She suggested I "treat" myself now and we'd test at my next appt (36wks) and go from there. If it's +, she agreed to retest closer to the birth in hopes of not needing the abx in labor. Sounds good to me! So, I stopped at the health food store on my way home and got echinacea, vit C, garlic, and grapefruit seed extract to add to my probiotics. Hopefully I won't test + after all that! She also recommended I take alphalfa to keep hemoglobin levels high (or increase them if they're low) since she understands how much bloodwork stresses me out and causes unhealthy amounts of anxiety (not having another hemoglobin reading). Gotta love CP's that are willing to work with you and acknowledge your stressors! All else is great. Baby's heart rate was staying between 139-147 and I'm measuring at 35wks. It seems I'm beginning to get back on track with "normal" measuring. I've been measuring 2wks ahead so we think baby must be lower since I'm only 1wk ahead now.

I'm going to go workout this evening (my fave class at the gym) so I'm debating whether I have the energy to complete any of my to do list before then. I really need to vac and mop but those both take a lot out of me. Maybe those can wait until tomorrow since I don't have workout plans for then.

Tara, can you point me in the direction of a protocol online that helps you treat with these? I think I am interested in doing the same sort of thing as you are. I am getting swabbed at my 36 appt. I would just rather the thing be negative (obviously) than go through the hassle of retesting closer to time. TIA!!

just to clarify (for myself anyway), my chiro does adjust me on my stomach each time...but w/ 2 pillows on the table. chiro's have differing views on teh pillow vs. other table. but i think its important if you (general you) feel ok about it.

i was able to drag myself there today and feel alot better.

the rsv test came back negative. thank goodness! we are still miserable though.

See that's what I'm thinking is fishy! I mean, how could my sacrum not need any adjustment when every single time I go he adjusts it? Odd, I thought.

Anyway, my chiro DOES have the special pillow and it's cut out enough for my belly. It's soft like memory foam and does cushion. It's just I always contract when I'm there and I thought that if he could do something with me on my side it would be nice. I guess he doesn't know how? I'm not sure if I'm going to go back. I mean, whatever at this point. Baby is head down, that was my main reason for going - everything else was just bonus.

Thanks for the shoutout! I'm glad my research is helping others! Tara, I hope all your preventative care truly works out for you. I had luck just taking my probiotics.

Something I used to tell myself to get me through it was that most mainstream medically managed pregnant women don't do any of this preventative probiotic stuff, and GBS is still pretty rare. It doesn't mean don't bother to do it, but don't panic over it, I suppose. That line of thinking helped keep me sane. The same way I kept thinking most women don't spend hours a day sitting on their birth ball or on their hands and knees, and their babies still turn on their own!

PW - Sorry you're still feeling icky! Hope it passes soon!

1 more day of work, then I'm home for 16 weeks!

There isn't a cup size. It goes by like M/34, L/36 etc. I wear a 36 C right now and bought the large. There's more room in the cup area but I don't know how much more. It's stretchy yk?

Not to burst anyone's bubble but I have to laugh when people try to set others up for a 'quick and easy' labor. I have wide hips that spread...technically I'm made for birthing...and my first labor was 24 hours with 3 hours of pushing. Not what I'd call quick and easy.

So glad it came back negative. : If it did come back postive I was thinking that this is going to be one nasty year for it.

No bubble burst here . Both of my labors were 11 hrs and one was born on his due date, the other 4 days before hers. I've only met this chiro twice and while I love her, I just thought it was odd that she was making predictions about the birth when she'd just met me. I think her reasoning is that I'm so big--this baby is ALL out front and I look further along than I am. I don't actually know what I'm measuring. . . my doc forgot to measure (subjective anyway. . . and pointless, IMO) and I didn't even think about it until my OB Nurse mom (who is constantly worried about me having to push out GIANT! EIGHT! POUND! BABIES! ) asked about it. Did I mention that I TOTALLY love my docs hands-off approach?

I craved them so much the beginning of this pregnancy that my poop was a funny color green (from excessive amounts of dyes..)! I stopped eating them when dh said, "Um, you eat a lot of lucky charms" when I was pondering the color of the poo

I find it so hard to keep up with these threads, I've ready through the last 3 pages so far. So yay for those doing good, and I'm sorry for those having a tough time. Next week I will keep up!

That is awesome about just one more day of work Carrie!!!!

Well, I got quite a bit of the baby clothes done today and have put all that ARE done away in our newly painted and IMO super cute dressers (we got the dressers for free from freecycle.com but spent about $100 on paint and such... oh well, I love em!)

Wife & Mama to Two Loving Kids DS1 (7/7/07) DS2 (925/08) and DS3 (6/28/12)! And our new furbaby puppy Koda!

Carrie, there are adjustments that can be done lying on your back too. My chiro adjusts me in multiple ways because doing just one way doesn't work. I'm on my tummy for my thoracic spine, on my side for my SI, and on my back for my neck and limbs. Also, that's a great way to think about the GBS test....I really hadn't thought of it like that. Thanks.....

No bubble burst here either! I never believe anyone when they tell me how easy my birth will be. I get comments like that all the time simply because I work out pretty intensely. "That baby is just going to fly right out!"

YES! It was Capt'n Crunch for me early on too, Carrie. My latest craving is french toast....in fact, I'd love to have some NOW. :
