    I am also "underweight" according to the BMI classification. With my first pregnancy, I leveled off around a 28 lb weight gain around 37 weeks. My DD was a healthy weight, 7 lbs 3 oz, so I know that the "recommended" weight gain isn't as big of a deal as some people make it out to be. This time, I am about 4-5 pounds lower than what I weighted last time, but I did loose a little more weight in the first trimester because of digestive issues and a little because I was still BFing. PLUS, I've noticed that I have no swelling yet this time, so I'm sure some of the less weight is because I'm not retaining water.

    Try not too worry too much. There can be a lot of reasons why you are measuring behind. It could be from him moving lower or being in a different position or it could just be human error with a measureing tape. I hope your placenta and fluid levels look fine on your ultrasound so you won't have to worry about it!

    I have a sick boy today. Dealing with a fever and going on fairly little sleep. At about 3 last night i started having mild cramping and by the time i woke up at 8 it was a full blown eternal cramp that does not seem to go away and Tylenol wont touch it. Im having contractions as well but they are still very irregular. I have some that double me over. I keep getting stabbing pains as well. From what i can tell it has intensified a little bit from what it was earlier today. Nothing that i would seriously call labor though. In fact i have no idea what is going on. About all i can tell you is im really uncomfortable.

    I'm sorry you are uncomfortable! Even though the contrax are irregular, they are doing something. I hope you and DS both feel better soon!

    Sorry you're feeling crampy/having irregular contrax in addition to having to take care of a sick little boy. I hope your DS feels better soon!

    DS is feeling much better today. His fever finally broke at 4 yesterday afternoon and he started to feel better yesterday evening but today he is doing much better. Now to get his appetite back.

    My contractions settled down and my abdomen doesn't hurt nearly as bad but my hips are still rather sore. I think they have about had it with the extra weight. I can be just fine walking around one minute and then the next my right hip (it's only my right hip) freaks out, i don't know how to explain it other than sharp stabbing pain that i can't move through, and i have to sit down on a heating pad before i can walk again. It seriously hits so fast and so out of the blue i'm about on the floor when it hits. Could it be sciatica?

    For the most part i'm actually feeling better. I'm ready to be done being pregnant though. My emotions are so out of whack that i almost feel like i'm going crazy. DH and i have been having more arguments as well because i guess i'm moody and talk to him like he is an idiot. I don't even realize i'm doing it and i certainly don't mean to. I think physically, mentally, and emotional i'm just drained and it seems like there is nothing i can do about it.

    My son had a small and calcified placenta, he had IUGR from it but other than that was fine. Try not to worry between now and your ultrasound.

    You could be experiencing sciatic pain, when I had it it felt like a huge cramp running down my thigh and it was very hard to stand upright when it hit. The chiropractor helped me a ton with getting it to stop.

    I'm glad your little boy is feeling better.

    I've been having a lot of discomfort in my right hip, lately, too. I'm glad to hear your DS is feeling better. It can be really hard to not be mean to your husband when you're pregnant--I'm pretty sure I do it without realizing it, too.

    Had my ultra sound today to check on baby from measuring small.

    Baby is looking good. His head is measuring at 38 weeks, so a full week ahead, and his body is measuring 2 weeks behind. But i make skinny kids, not that i can help it with skinny genes from me and their dad. His heart rate was a little lower than i would have liked, 121bpm, but i had nasty contractions all morning long too. He is in the perfect birth position. Head down back on my right side, butt up in my right ribs. The fluid level looks good as well. They estimated his weight to be about 5 pounds 10 oz. The conclusions, I just make small kids.

    So glad everything looks good. I'm way over these "practice contractions" though. I'm seriously in pain.

    Yay! Wonderful news about your ultrasound! I'm so glad and relieved that his head measured big and everything looked good with fluid levels and your placenta. Some people just make small babies just like some people make large ones. Sorry about the "practice labor" bothering you.
