I'm sorry Maddie! That is no good at all! Hopefully it will all pass soon!!!
My baby shower is tomorrow. And I don't have a place for any of the stuff I receive to go yet. And I'm really really quite nervous about the whole being the center of attention thing. And then I'm also worried I won't have everything I need for the baby. And I'm worried about DH's job situation. He needs one soon!!!
Just feeling a bit anxious here. I'll be fine!
I'm feeling the same way (minus the DH part...), I hope he gets a new job soon. my baby shower is tomorrow as well and the only place I have for anything is in the crib. Although luckily I think most people have had their gifts delivered so we've received them already. But I am feeling nervous about figuring out what we will still need after the shower.
Its terrifying to think I have less than 8 weeks to go... And you only have 5 right?
If you are using a crib use the under the bed storage containers to store stuff and if your going to use a changing table use it to store stuff also. Over the door shoe holders is another good way to store stuff. My shower isnt for another week. So no worries this weekend on being the center of attention yet. lol Good luck to you both tomorrow. You will have to share pictures.
Ugh...who knows how many weeks I actually have left. Haha...but yes most likely around 6-8 wks. I'd be SUPER surprised if they don't take her before Christmas. We'll see.
Unfortunately we're already using all the space under the bed, and our changing table is the dresser which is going to house the baby's clothes as soon as I've sorted a new space for my clothes.
But we will make a plan, we always do
Aren't babies supposed to move less as they get bigger? My Squishy is moving more than ever since we got to 32 weeks.... And it's darn painful!
Sophie is moving a ton still. Specially when I poke or mess with her to get her to move. Then its like shes crazy lol.
How was your baby shower this last weekend? Mines this weekend trying to get a final head count and everything ug.
Hope the baby showers went well girls!! Hope you got everything you were really needing or that you can at least return some stuff that you don't need and can easily purchase what you do
I'm with you Roxi.. I kept reading that they are supposed to move less and I'm like... Daxton goes crazy in my belly. When I contract he throws a fit I think lol because he just wiggles wiggles wiggles.
He's at a Station -1 so when he moves his head it totally messes with my bones in there and doesn't feel good at all. and then he squishes my bladder too.. It's rough lol
I forgot to update after the baby shower.
It was so much FUN! My SIL did an amazing job! I now vote for her to be our family party planner....because she is AMAZING at it!
We got most of what we needed. We got a ton of clothes. With the cash money from some of the people at the shower I was able to buy her cloth diapers...yay! I was actually getting kinda worried about that. I also have about $75 in target gift cards. Which is GREAT for all of the other things we need, like a changing pad, bottle nipples, pacifiers, burp cloths, etc. I think we just about have clothing covered. A friend of a friend gave us all her baby clothes she was about to donate to charity...and so now my living room is OVERFLOWING. I'm going to sew some bibs because I didn't get hardly any at all. But that and burp rags are easy projects to do.
So, now its just a matter of putting it all away and getting the stuff from my SIL and setting up her room.
EXCITED!! Can't wait for her to be here!
Oh, and funny story. Braxton (DS) got SUPER excited when we told him we were having a baby shower for baby Aarilyn because he thought that meant she would be here that day. LOL He was disappointed but it was sooo cute. Then in chapel this week at school his prayer request was that his sister would get here faster. LOL I love that he is so excited about it!
That's fantastic Jana!
I only got like 4 bibs and like 4 burp clothes... and maybe 1 receiving blanket.. There are things i still need to get but I won't be getting them right now obviously!
It's exciting that babys are coming soon!! My friend is due in 2 weeks... She is dying to have her baby girl! It's funny because I'm like.. stay baby stay and shes like come baby come!
My baby shower went great. We had lots of friends turn up and got totally spoilt. Was very happy to get the nursery corner of our room finished before the shower so we had somewhere cute to put the gifts.
I still have to do a proper inventory but I think I got more newborn/0-3mth stuff than I anticipated.... And now that you mention it I think I forgot to put burp cloths on the registry. Got a bunch of face cloths but only a couple bibs.
I need to order doors that will convert one of our bookcases into a closet then I can put the baby stuff in the dresser and take stock.
How do they tell the station? I know my Squishy is head down 90% of the time (although this week I've felt her turn 90 degrees a couple times) and I don't think she's fully engaged yet but she often jabs me in the hip bone and it hurts like HELL! Just wondering if it could be a similar thing to what you're feeling.
My doc said yesterday that my cervix has shortened and if I go into proper labor now he won't stop it. But so far the contractions are still non-progressive although they are causing more discomfort than before. I even have to stop walking/talking thru some of them. But they come and go still so not real yet.
The stations are how high or low they are. When I got checked at labor and delivery they said she was somewhere between -3 and -6 station which I laughed at. The baby needs to be at 0 or + for them to come out. Its how far their head is in your cervex.
From what I know about the stations and how its measured here is
(regular pregnancy)-4, -3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3, +4 (crowning)
It's measured off of how low they are sitting in the pelvis and can be checked during a cervical exam when they check dilation and effacement.
Here is an example but they base it off of 3 rather than 4. each office/person/place has a different measurement type.
Roxi- I absolutely love the nursery corner. It's adorable!
We didn't get any decorations for baby's room so It's pretty much... nothing. I guess we did get one. We got a cute monkey painting someone painted for us. I'm hoping to get it all set up cute before anything happens.. but since I can't do much I doubt that'll happen
My little rebel is breech. No stations for me. Getting checked again today.
Can they tell stations if there is no dilation yet? Squishy is probably still above -3 seeing as she is still turning 90 degrees and moving lots-lots.
We got the decorations ourselves, I couldn't bear to look at the blank white walls above the crib once it was set up. But I also didn't want to hang anything directly over the crib for fear it will fall off the wall, as well as because we're most likely moving apartments in March.
And No Maddie! You're not to do any decorating!
Oh No, Steph! I hope she turns at the right time!
I think they can??? I think a lot of women have the station change before dilation but I don't know for sure!
That's smart. I have wall decals on my registry but didn't get any which is a bummer. I figure for stuff like that I'm gonna wait for my 10% off coupon after my due date. That way I save a little bit of money.
My house is disgusting to me... I want it clean.
Urgh, I get you there! I'm not officially on bed rest but have huge difficulty doing much of anything nowadays. Even though I know I have to go at least another 6 weeks I can't imagine her getting any bigger than she is now and me still being able to move!
Yea they can figure out the station if there is no dialation. Im only a fingertip dialated(or was last week) and thats when they told me that she was -3 or -6 lol
Figure it this way. Atleast the baby wont be 14lbs like in an article I read a couple days ago. I like my babies they are smaller 6lbs 3oz to just under 8lbs.
With stress between xmas coming up, registering our new car, the baby stuff... DH and I are NOT getting a long.. and the house being dirty is stressful stressful stressful for me and I can't clean it and I depend on him for it.. but he's busy with work (it's been a long work week).... I just wanna cry and cry and cry. I tried to talk to him and yesterday and today he's just kinda been a ****. :/
((((hug)))) Sorry things are sucky. It's not going to be this stressful forever. I know how hard it is to relinquish the control, but you need to because the additional stress is not worth it. It's only going to make the pre-term labor worse.... Accept that DH has to do it and will do it when he can.
Is anyone else super touchy and emotional and snippy lately?? I totally bit a shop-girl's head off today at the grocery store today and then I just wanted to burst into tears for being mean.
I definitely have been snippy the last two days. Dogs, DH, and DS are on my last nerve. Guys at work and all their complaining, which I usually just ignore, I have been speaking out about getting them to just SHUT UP or go to a different room to complain. Ah!
Good News - squishy girl is head down for the moment. But during my NST (I get twice a week u/s and NSTs) they kept me on for an extra 20 minutes. Something about her heartbeat not going up and down as much as normal. Then my blood pressure was slightly elevated. Ugh. Made me late for my GD appointment, so then I just went home and slept instead of going back to work. Frustrating day.
So my new dr's office called today and they tried to schedule my Csec but the first available date at the hospital wasn't until Jan 3rd!!!! ARGH!! I can't wait that long, even if I don't go 'early' like I'm supposed to!! I'm so stinkin' frustrated and upset because all of this is coming about because of the insurance change. With the previous insurance we didn't have to schedule ahead of time like this. Otherwise it would have already been done a month ago on the old insurance. You can bet that I'm going to be doing everything in my power to induce labor early!!
ARGH ARGH ARGH!!!
Ive been getting frustrated and angry very quick lately and staying that way. Specially at work. Its not a good thing at all. Yesterday was a horrible day and so glad this week is over. Went shopping with my friend tonight that is doing my baby shower on Sunday and got things for prizes and what not. Then out to dinner and finally home. My son decided since I was on the phone with my dad about tomorrow morning that he would try n run around outside. Not a good thing. They are all finally asleep over a hour and a half after their bedtime. Tomorrow morning we are going to see the movie Free Birds for free. A lady that works with my company(shes a realator) rented out a whole theater and she does donuts and juice and popcorn and what not. All for free. Before hand they will show the video they shot with alot of the businesses she works with like they did last year. Not sure what song they did this year. My mom is getting my oldest brother, his wife and their 4 kids plus me and my 4 kids tickets to the polar express for December 7. Im guessing its going to be part of everyones christmas gift or will be the whole gift. My kids will love it. Me it will be interesting with the 3 older ones and a newborn.
On a bad note. Im retaining water really bad tonight my socks totally left indents and when I pushed in on my leg it stayed for a little bit. Not a good thing. Hopefully it goes away.
So we are all extra emotional!? That's fantastic!!! I'm not the only one. I thought maybe depression was hitting but it seems to be a trend with all of us!
Sorry that everyone is feeling that way though. Definitely not very fun. Hope we can get hormones under control. Not too much longer to go.
Jana- sorry to hear about the hospital schedule. Hopefully they can get ya in sooner :/
Kati- make sure you talk to the dr if you keep retaining so much! Be safe
DH and I had a good talk about our feelings lately and such last night and he came and just snuggled me. It was really really nice. I wish we could have had sex but since I'm not Allowed we didn't. Lol sorry tmi.
We got DS yesterday. DH works a 1/2 day today and off site so I'll have Ds by myself. It might be intense. :/ ds was extremely whiny all last night so I'm hoping he was just tired but I down it. He often comes back crying anytime he wants something from his dads house. He even cried when I told him he's gonna have to help keep the house clean. Turd. I wish I could make eggs in a basket for breakfast and do my mommy routine. wish me luck this week. Hopefully I find someone to take him to school most days :/
Oh Maddie! It must be so very difficult to not be able to attend to his needs. It's bad enough that I can't attend to my FurBaby and DH's every day needs properly, I can't imagine not being able to make things better for my little boy.
Kati: that movie day-out sounds like so much fun! What is the Polar Express?
Jana: that is seriously the worst news ever! I hope they sort it out.
ARGH!! I am so over being pregnant! but at the same time I'm not I still like feeling her move around in my belly (when it doesn't hurt like a beast). I just can't imagine another 4-6 weeks of being this uncomfortable and knowing that she is going to grow even more!!! I'm not sleeping well; I can't sit comfortably or get up off the sofa easily; I can't walk for more than 10 min without the contractions coming on; I also can't socialise with friends and talk and laugh without contractions starting; and to top it all off I have been feeling like I'm getting a cold for about a week now. Help!
Roxi this is what the polar express is The Polar Express Train Rides, 2013 It has them listed for alot of states. My mom got the tickets this morning. The kids will be sooo excited. I cant wait for it.
Im not enjoying this pregnancy anymore. I want her out. Every time she moves now pretty much it just hurts. Its never been like this. I think she is bigger than I think she is and possibly bigger then my other kids. If you guys with kids want a good movie to take them to go see Free Birds. My kids enjoyed it other than my 3 year old who again got restless towards the end. I liked the movie other then the contractions I was having and having to keep getting up to go to the bathroom. Atleast my dad and DJ came with to watch the movie and help with the kids.
Pregnancy is hard.
DH took DS and I to the mall today- He wheeled me around in a wheel chair the whole time. It was great to get out and spend time outta the house with the two of them.
I got home though and was so tired and grouchy. I took a bath to chill out and kept lightly dozing off so yeah.. Now I'm chillin' in bed and not falling asleep. Lame. But I haven't really tired...
Big day of hw tomorrow.
What are you all doing this weekend?
We had the wedding shower/party for my niece this afternoon/tonight. This morning I got most of the NB and 0-3 mo clothes for Aarilyn and most of the other stuff from the shower put away. (finally!) I've got the first load of 3-6 mo. clothes in the washer and the other 1/2 of 3-6 mo. clothes and all of the 6-9 mo. clothes are still piled on my couch awaiting washing now that they are all sorted. Yeah....I know I'll have to wash them again in several mo when it is time for her to actually wear them, but they smell soooo musty and yucky, almost like they weren't *quite* dry when they were put away that I can't handle putting them away in her closet that way. Yuck.
Tomorrow is church in the morning and evening with hopefully a nice nap in between or so much energy to get stuff done that a nap doesn't even enter the equation...(haha...that is highly unlikely!!)
And I'm EXHAUSTED and ready for bed already.
Is it bad to be DONE with pregnancy already and just want it over with? I want all the worry/stress of pregnancy over with already and my precious baby girl here and safe and healthy. Really the pg itself still isn't so bad that I can't handle it, it is the stress of how birth/work/hospital stuff is going to play out that is getting to me still. I've got to let it go bc stressing out about it at this point will change nothing. Only prayer will do that! So, basically I need to start listening to my own little sermon here and stop worrying and start praying instead!
I think I'm about to head to bed. Too tired to think straight!
I'm supposed to be studying this weekend seeing as my next exam is on wednesday but I am struggling so much lately. We went out to dinner with friends last night and it left me broken today. I've had 5 or 6 contractions tonight, more intense than previously. I've also been feeling half-crampy today, kinda bruised. Had back ache yesterday and last night. So freaked that it might be the heralding of early labor but at the same time I just want it over.
We had the movie this morning then did shopping this afternoon for food and some stuff for my baby shower tomorrow. Then kmart to get a baby book(finally) and some socks for lil miss(cleranced). Tomorrow have to finish getting stuff ready for the shower and the shower is tomorrow afternoon. Other then that I am meeting a lady to buy something for the baby.
DH and I had a date night last night. Which was shopping, dinner, and a movie. It was nice. We barely talked about kids. It was just nice to get away. But I have part of a paper to write and some other school stuff to get done.
Hoping today before we pick up DS we can move some furniture around so I can finally put Nora's clothes away. I've washed some but they are just sitting up on furniture so they don't get touched or anything.
I'm done with this pregnancy. I know I will regret not being happier about this pregnancy later (this may be our last, just due to funds and I"m not sure I want to be out numbered). But we've been waiting so long for a little baby, and I'm just so uncomfortable. I don't have all the contractions it seems a lot of you have, but she switches between breech and head down almost daily and I just never know what to expect anymore. Plus sick of all the GD stuff. *wah*
Maddie - how's bed rest going?
Steph - Date night sounds fun!! I totally understand being done with pg too...I'm sick of GD stuff too...diabetes is much easier to control outside of pg.
Kati - Sounds like ya'll had a fun Saturday!
Roxi - how are the contractions/crampiness now? Good luck with the studying!
Rough morning I woke up early, which gave me a false sense of security and I did way more than I usually would on a Monday morning, which resulted in us running late anyway. Then I burned our breakfast. Then we got to the school, couldn't get the alarm to disarm and ended up setting off the burglar alarm. Its def one of THOSE mornings. Lol
My best friend went into early labor yesterday. They sent her home because she still wasn't far enough along, but she is definitely in labor and progressing. Woo Hoo! And she is only 37 wks too...I'm hoping that happens to me too!
I finally got all of the 0-3 mo and 3-6 mo clothes washed. Now I only have the 6-9 mo. clothes (another two loads...lol) and I will FINALLY have my living room clear of Aarilyn's clothes. I may actually find that I have furniture under those piles of clothes.
Tomorrow a.m. is my first appt with my new Dr. He is doing an u/s and a longer appt with me since I'm so far along when transfering to him. Hopefully it all goes well. :/ Then on Wednesday I have my first biophysical and NST w/ my MFM. I then start the twice weekly appts with her. So.....here we go! We're officially on the downhill slide! Can't wait to meet little miss Aarilyn!!
Bed rest is going alright. DH swept and mopped the kitchen and living room yesterday and picked it up and it definitely relieved SO much stress for me. Unfortunately dishes have already piled in the sink and the table is messy and food got on the floor.... its what you get for having a 5 year old lol. We get outta the house at times because I'm on a moderate bedrest and so we've gone to the mall and wheeled me around in a chair. It helps to be able to get out a bit but I'm so tired of being so limited. :/ bleh!
Sounds like people had their weekends planned. hope it all went well!!
I agree that that date night sounds great Steph.
How did school/studying go to both Roxi and Steph?
I'm falling behind in my classes and am having seriously motivation issues to catch up. I just feel like I'm in the complete dark on when this baby is coming and feeling hopeless with everything. I hate school. I'm like constantly EXHAUSTED lately... IDK why. Probaby because I'm getting ZERO exercise. :/ I feel pretty lethargic.
The last couple of days I am just feeling totally off... IDK how to explain. but really off... today I have a huge headache too and last night I had one.. I hadn't been having headaches for like a week or more. So I'm bummed about it.
I managed to read thru 4 of my remaining 8 chapters yesterday after having a (relatively) good nights sleep. Been sleeping a little better since I found new positions for my body pillow. Haven't had to move to the sofa for 3 nights now and woke up with less hip joint ache today! Yay!
I dont have very high hopes for these 3 exams tho. My focus is gone again and all I want to do is rest and prepare the house for this baby. I haven't sorted thru any of the clothes I have, let alone washed them; haven't sorted out my new closet yet; my bag isn't packed; haven't found a doula yet; haven't got any bottle feeding equipment yet; haven't got a stroller yet; SO MUCH TO DO!!
I am sooo ready for this baby to be here. Financially I am better off then I thought I would be. If I make it through this whole work week (ug) I will have enough to stay home longer then I expected. Which is way nice. I just need to make it through work and Ill be ok. lol Im struggling with the stupidity and crap at work. Its hard not to loose it sometimes. I just need a break from it. We will see. So I bought a car seat cover for the car seat yesterday and pulled out the car seat to show DJ how it works and there was freaking mold on the carseat. It was on the straps so in the trash that went. It was so gross. Its been in my closet since I got it so have no clue. I have to go through my closet and the kids closet to make sure everything else is ok. Not something I want to do but since I have alot of the babys things stored in my closet I will have to do it to make sure I dont have to get rid of anything else. I have 2 other car seats that I can use so atleast thats a plus. Just frustrating.
Yesterday was my baby shower. It actually went rather well. Everyone I figured that would show up did other then my best friend but she called me earlier in the day and told me she was sick and I appreciated her staying home. lol. I got some more diapers and some clothes. I got a pink rock and play from my aunt and cousin which is really nice. Totally didnt expect it. Also had one so am going to sell the one I had and my travel swing so I can have a little extra money and get things she needs.
GAH! I can't do it! My mother in law took Riley to school and said she'd pick him but. I told her the time a couple times. I'm REALLY thankful that she offered to help.
So he gets outta school at 3:50
at 4:05 his school called me saying he was still there and asking me the plan.
I called my MIL immediatelly and she apologized, said she got caught up in what she was doing and her alarm didn't go off and I'm not really mad at her BUT
I don't feel like I can depend on anyone. I have to take him to school and pick him up. I always make sure to be there within a couple of minutes of the bell ringing and I'm very "there" for Riley all the time. My poor baby today.
Oh no! Poor little man! I remember the few times my mom forgot to pick me up I was devastated and I was in high school!! I hope your MIL becomes more reliable so that you don't have to worry and can rest.
DH is SUPER sick..
He's got a fever, sore throat, chills, and muscle aches. My poor sweetheart.
Not really good to be on bedrest while DH is sick and we have DS :/
I'm so sorry Maddie! Ya'll have it rough over there!
My nephew was playing with DS today and accidentally busted (like totally shattered) DS's window in his room. So now we've got cardboard and a plastic garbage bag taped over it...so doesn't feel safe, but there's nothing else we can do for at least a couple of days.
But I'm so excited bc tonight on the way back from a meeting one of the houses in our neighborhood had a baby swing, bouncer, play jumper thingy, rocking horse toy (all were girly looking too) out by the curb for trash/give away. DH wanted to stop bc these are things we have yet to get for the baby...and they are in PERFECT condition!! And all have batteries and are working well!! Jackpot! So, I've gotta wash them up and wash all of the coverings and stuff...but sooooo excited because those are things we just thought we'd have to forego because the money simply isn't there right now until DH finds another job, and they are not absolutely necessary. Soooo thankful!!! Maybe some would think it silly to find something someone else is throwing out/giving away as a blessing, but I absolutely view it as a blessing!
Tomorrow is the big appt with my new doc. I also get a u/s with him....sooooo...wish me luck! I'll let you all know how it goes.
Aw Maddie! It never rains for you, does it?? I hope DH gets better soon and that DS is ok with you being on rest. Hows the resting going? Still contracting and everything?
Jana: that is so awesome! I totally get your excitement at finding that stuff! I collected the whole Twilight book series off the sidewalk in my neighborhood
I have suddenly become very anxious about not having things properly ready for the baby to come home... And it is seriously interfering with my study concentration. And then suddenly today since after lunch I can barely walk I have such intense pressure down there! Part of me hopes its just a growth spurt and that she'll bake a few more weeks but part of me wishes she would just arrive already!
Jana- That's AWESOME!!! I would be extremely excited too. That's super lucky and I'm glad it worked out just right for ya! However, a total bummer on the window. :/ Do you guys live in a pretty good neighborhood?? If not I might have DS sleep on the floor in your room or something?? Good luck with the new DR. I hope it's a perfect match and the ultrasound goes great
Roxi- UT OH. Sounds like you might be starting early labor or something... KUP okay? and don't hesitate to go to L&D for practically nothing. It's better to be there and know whats going on!!!
I can't seem to catch a break.
The resting is not going the way it should. I am doing more than I should be doing but with DH sick there is just no way to rest as much as I need. and I'm nesting super bad. I've actually gotten all NB clothes out along with blankets and other things to wash.. I haven't gotten to that yet and I was able to take off all the tags and such. and the dishwasher REALLY needed loaded. and I had to stick some clothes in the washer to wash tomorrow. IDK.. I know it's not good to do so much... But what am I supposed to do?! and It helps relieve stress for me... and my stress levels are OUT OF THE ROOF!
I am still having contractions but not too many. Nights/Evenings seem to be quite a bit worse than day. I notice that when I have contractions though, when I go to the bathroom I definitely see mucus plug. I know it builds all the time.. so it makes me wonder if my contractions are kinda productive since when I have them is when I loose mucus plug?
DS also threw a HUGE tantrum tonight- COMPLETELY out of character for him. He cries a lot to get what he wants (doesn't work in my house but i think it does at his dads) but tonight he was literally screaming and crying in his room because I wouldn't finish the bedtime story and didn't snuggle because I was frustrated with reading and him not paying attention/trying his best. It was wrong of me to get upset but he was wayyyyy dramatic. Once things calmed down, I apologized but he still didn't get snuggles for bed, but a kiss goodnight.
I'm stressing out about when the baby comes. I sometimes feel like a terrible mommy because of my lack a patience and here I am about to have a 2nd child. I worry I'm gonna be awful. Anyone else having these concerns??
Super emotional this evening/night. I just want to cry and cry kinda.
I wish DH were feeling better. he's hardly moved around at all tonight... I really think he might have the flu. Good thing I was able to get my flu shot!! Why is everything so overwhelming!?
Roxi- UT OH. Sounds like you might be starting early labor or something... KUP okay? and don't hesitate to go to L&D for practically nothing.
I dont think its early labor just yet but I think we might be close to that: I just got up to go to the bathroom and realized that I can feel her bum/feet dead center now instead of off to the right so I think she has fully engaged. Also I think she had a growth spurt because the fundus seems to be night now than it was on Monday morning. Strangely I also only had one or two contractions yesterday, even when walking was so difficult.
I'm sorry yesterday was so tough Maddie. You're feeling overwhelmed because DH is sick and can't help out, plus being nesty is obviously not helping.
It's 3.30am right now and I'm wide awake. If it weren't so hard to move I might've gone to do some studying but it actually hurts getting up and out of bed
I'm a nesting machine! DH went to this volunteer meeting he is involved with (he was cleaning since I got home, made dinner and everything) I just planned on bringing a basket downstairs to consolidate all of the dirty clothes in the living room. That turned into organizing things I haven't touched in months and just generally going crazy. I hope this, and the contractions I had earlier this week turn into something a little more!
Although her coming early would ruin all of my plans. I practically have everything planned up until the day she is due. But she has been so uncooporative this entire pregnancy I would not be suprised if she showed up early. Today I found out in my u/s she is transverse, although I think she may have flipped at this point, but probably wrong side up. I don't have another u/s till Friday to confirm.
What is really strange about this little girl is that she HATES heart monitors! At a 7 week check up she kicked the monitor so much they had to check me on u/s. At my 12 week u/s she kept moving so the u/s tech couldn't get a clear shot for all the genetic screening. Now on my last 2 NST's she has avoided the monitors, even if they strap me down extra to keep her in place. So then I get stuck on the monitor for an hour plus (its usually about 20 minutes or so). Plus in my twice weekly u/s she is head up, then head down, head up, then transverse. I'm almost scared for her to come out! At least she is contained at this point!
So, today I have my first bio-physical with the MFM. I can't wait to see how much little miss weighs and where she is growth wise. Huge, we know, but I want numbers to put with that term. I just realized that Thanksgiving is only 2 1/2 wks away! Wow! Then only 2-3 wks before I have a baby, then Christmas!! Double Wow!!
Can't believe how close we are all getting!!
I agree: WOW! and Double WOW!
