How far are you now?
Uhhhh. 17 1/2 weeks
Have you been feeling movement?
not too much, really.
If so how often daily or sporadic?
Usually at least once per day, but nothing regular yet.
Have you found out the sex of your baby?
No, it will be a mystery until birth-day. DH dreamed of a boy last night, though.
Have you been hit with heartburn yet?
Not really yet. But, I am still dealing with hard-core nausea. HB is only sporadic now; it was RAGING with my DS until he slid out!
Can stanger's tell you are pg yet?
I think so, but lots of people seems to have a pregnant-looking belly, so only the brave ask about it.
When is you next appt and what do you expect at that appt?
Sept. 3; just the usual. We will get to hear the HB with the fetoscope!
Oh, on the sorta yucky side... this state requires doctor backup and I have to get a pap smear next week. I will go to a medical practice for that, with a midwife, I think (not my regular HB midwife).
For ladies still bfing... hows it going?
We are still nursing a couple of times a day (DS is 3 yrs 4 mos), but there is no milk at all. I think it went completely away at 16 weeks. It hurts a lot when he latches on, but it is not excruciating. ETA: last night, we got colostrum! YAY! I really am so happy b/c DS has a staph infection. With DS, I didn't have it until much closer to the end 8 months or so. And having the colostrum allows me to nurse for longer with less pain.
Anything else you want to add?
Is anyone else still nauseous? I have tried everything: ginger, 20+ homeopathic remedies (I see a prof. homeopath), relief band (electro-stim), acupuncture (effective, but $$$). I also had to use Phenergan when I was unable to hold down water. Now I am not vomiting, just low grade, daily nausea. I am soooo sick of it.
