That was me too! I got full body RLS and sometimes the hypnobirthing tracks helped and sometimes they were TORTURE. Giving yourself a little leeway to make it work better for you is a great idea.
Had my 38 week appt today! Very boring and absolutely nothing to report. Well, other than the hospital and my old OB both refusing to send my surgical report so that my office has the report about my scar. First requested a few months ago! They're calling and faxing both places today in hopes of getting something. Can't say I'm surprised! Not a huge deal since they know where my scar is without a doubt, but still need this to cover their butts.
OH! The MW thinks my itching isn't PUPPS. She's thinking new stretch marks and something might be irritating my skin. Well, this afternoon my itching went crazy again. I'm now thinking that the belly band part of my pants and the stretchy under tanks I wear is what is causing the irritation! The itching did improve yesterday and I was wearing PJ pants under my belly and a loose cotton shirt since I hadn't gone anywhere. So no more over belly band and not going to wear the tanks that cover my belly either. Hopefully this will make a difference! Would be nice!
Got lots of comments today for wearing one of those skeleton t-shirts with the baby skeleton. Apparently no one there has ever seen one! lol! DH said he'll take a few pics when he gets home later today.
So as late as a month ago the BX (base exchange store) carried 7th generation diapers. Guess what they don't have now that I want one single pack for my son while he's in my SILs care. She'll use cloth diapers, but no way would I expect her to wash them and what if I need to wash CDs desperately when I go into labor?! lol. Anyways, no one in town sells them or similar as far as I know. Never seen them anywhere else before. *sigh* I just want ONE pack. Not a jumbo pack. Not 200. Just one simple small pack for a few days. :P Had no idea this would be so hard! Kid has had issues in huggies, pampers, luvs, etc before unless he's completely covered in white diaper cream (ew) so I am picky!
Zoe's room looks awesome!!
I'm glad your MW doesn't think its PUPPS. How annoying about the TX hospital not sending your records. I can't wait to see Halloween pics!
Here's what you do about the diapers. Throw a load in then order a pack on Amazon. The diapers will get here before Zoe or you'll have a fresh load just cleaned.
Amazon pretty much sells them in huge packs or you gotta go through a 3rd party. But apparently BRU an hour away has some, so I guess I'll get some next week at my appt while I'm in that city. What are the chances are me actually going into labor in the next week? And if I do I'll give my SIL $20 and tell her to go by the BRU in her city. Actually her NEX (same as a BX) is a lot bigger than ours and probably has them. I'm just doing the 38 week pregnant woman panic over dumb things I know. I actually had the "omg this is going to HURT!" thought hit me today. Hi Jack, this is why you've been doing hypno.
Do you have a Kroger where you are? Their Comforts for Baby Chlorine-Free diapers are AWESOME (and cheap!) I actually like them way better than Seventh Gen, and they are less than half the price. Comforts for Baby - Touch of Nature
Nope, no Krogers out here. Not even one of their many spin off stores.
Aw! You're both so cute in your skeletons! All three of you even!
Make sure the BRU has the 7th gen diapers. My BRU (well, the one back in Kalamazoo) used to carry them, and then they stopped. But they did still carry Earth's Best, which I liked as well. Also though, BRU delivers, so you could order them online from there!
Sorry about the itching! I'm glad your midwife thinks it's just irritation/stretchmarks. I know my stretch marks itched like crazy. I had such a hard time not scratching them! And in my first pregnancy, I got my first stretch marks at 38+ weeks, which seemed, SO unfair, especially considering Beni was born at 39+2. And of course, now I'm covered in them, and they are still really apparent 5 mos after Z was born. Some parts of having babies are not THAT cool.

The majority of my stretch marks with Aiden (like 98% of them!) came at 40 weeks +! Zoe? Yeah, not so kind. But until the itching started they were flesh toned and didn't look too terribly bad. Just annoying (especially the ones that decided to go through my c/s scar). Now they're all red, puffy, dark, and icky. Ugh. Whatever. Almost done. Just don't expect me in a bikini like I was the summer after Aiden was born.
Ugh, sorry about the itching. Glad you figured out what may be irritating it more. Hopefully now it will lessen. I love the pics of Zoe's nursery. That's a great idea on the fabric covered cork boards. I may have to steal that from you.
Love the skeleton outfits on all 3 of you! How has your itching been today?
