Michelle, I feel the same way. I was up all night thinking about them. I spent all day thinking about them too. DH knows how much I lean on my MDC friends and he was really sad for them too.

To everyone today. I did SO many errands today!! I had my first appt with the new doc and after she made me wait for 10 min with my legs hanging off the exam table, they got SWOLLEN. So when she asked about swelling (which has been minimal) she grabbed my now puffy and red legs and commented on us needing to watch that. I told her that it was the dangling but I dont think she believed me!! Oh well, she was very nice and the offices were nice, clean and there was no wait.

Is anyone addicted to Law and Order?! DH put a tv in our room (the first time ever having one in there) and I cant get enough of that show!!

not to feed your addiction (as if there arent enough L&O in th us), but the uk has a version of L&O now that's really good. Only there are a lot more wigs in their version

The HB MW and the CNMs I am seeing for co-care/shadow-care are not into predicting size. Nobody ever says anything about it (they measure me and feel the baby, but no discussions one way or the other). They didn't even think it was important for me to do the 20 week US (I didn't).

I am going for a size check US b/c I have gestational diabetes- really to make the hospital-based people happy, even though I am not planning to birth there (but can't totally tell them that). I am SOOOOOO skeptical about these things, they are renowned for being incredibly inaccurate. EVERYONE knows they are, and so why do they keep doing them? Just because they've got the machines? I honestly don't care if my baby is "big" and I don't want people trying to get me worked up about it in advance anyway... knowing some (inaccurate) number will not change the fact that I'll be giving birth!

My midwife guessed 6 pounds at 34 weeks, and after that hasn't wanted to guess or tell me what she thinks. She's been pretty strict about my diet because I'm at risk for GD but never developed it, and I get the feeling that she thinks I'm going to have a huge baby and doesn't want to scare me by saying I have to push out a 10 pounder. She did say that she didn't think it would be good for me to go much past my due date.



After Mischevium's terrible news I've been feeling pretty down, and last night I had a breakdown pretty much freaking out about any number of things that can go wrong between now and the birth, and beyond. And just as I got here this morning I saw a thread with "stillbirth" in the title, which I can't bear to read. I hate that these things are happening. This forum has been a great source of information and comfort in the past few weeks, but that kind of news has such a powerful effect on me that I don't know if I should allow myself to be exposed to it. I do want to read all of the birth announcements and stories that I know are coming, but I may have to lay off for a while until my baby comes. I don't know. I hope you all are doing well.
