Other than our Dr/midwife appts, how is everyone doing? Anything new going on?
I think my pregnancy has been pretty good besides the whole hernia surgery thing. So I really don't like to complain. But the last 2 weeks it's been a little harder for me. Night time is rough because I am up doing things all day. This past week has been full of errands and I am tired! My dr gave me some pain meds I took them 2 times and I don't really want to anymore, I have been taking a HOT shower almost everyday I told hubby sorry for the high water/gas bill but it's the only thing that helps my stomach!
I just can not wait for her to come and if she wants to come early fine by me
Things have been good. My little man turns 4 on Tuesday, crazy! I just found out my mom can go to my measuring u/s on the 20th which is awesome because she hasn't been able to make any of them this pregnancy and this would be the first one of all her grandkids she hasn't seen yet. I have almost all my Christmas shopping done, just have a few more things to get for siblings Now I have to wrap it all. We didn't give the kids too big of a Christmas this year but they each for 1 big thing and a couple little things so they will be happy. Everything is almost set to go for Maya, I got the kids room completely cleaned last night, which wore me out, and the old dresser cleared out to be taken out to the curb tonight and I will be getting the new dresser in tomorrow. DH wants to paint the walls so I guess if he wants to do that we need to get in gear and get the paint. I figure white and we will do the ladybug decals on her side and Mario on my sons side since that's his obsession right now. I want to get her crib too but she wont use it about February so im fighting off the urge to get it and waiting I think that about concludes my book here lol.
I'm feeling pretty good right now. I'm much more comfortable than I was with Nathan at this point. I have no back pain which is some sort of miracle. Mostly I'm dealing with substantial pelvic pain and the hemorrhoids situation is starting to get slightly out of control.
Our house is a huge mess right now. We're trying so hard to get things in order so that there will be enough room for all the baby stuff once baby comes. It's really tough. I just can't seem to keep on top of the regular cleaning and the baby preparations. Fortunately in 2 weeks I will be off work until January 9th for Winter Break and hope I'll have the time I need to get everything sorted out.
I'm doing good. We had our first baby shower today and it went really well. It ended up being just family because all of our friends were busy. I just finished my internship and will be busy working on finishing my coursework to graduate in 2 weeks.
Our birthmom is doing okay. She is uncomfortable and has 7 weeks left unless baby girl desides to come early.
Kebrina you will have to share some pictures!! I am glad you had a good time. Glad the birthmom is doing good and 7 weeks will fly fast!!
I am doing ok. Had to run a bunch or errands today which took me to the mall, beside RLP and becoming winded when I move to fast it was ok. I am really starting to feel the 3rd tri!
We have nothing and I mean nothing ready for baby! DH has to get everything out of the attic and we have to get everything set up. Not to mention get the few things yet we need to buy. I work well under pressue thank goodness!
Our C-section is scheduled for 01/11/2012, we are excited to have a date!
Glad to hear that everyone else is doing good and I am not the only one that still has "work" to do!
meh doing ok here. I am really looking forward to my last day of work on the 30th, and I am still dealing with a lot of sciatic pain and pubic pain, so I look forward to when my chiro appts will go down to once a week. The chiro really helps, but after about 4-5 days it wears off and then I am in pain again until the next appointment, which are two weeks apart at the moment.
As for having things ready for the baby, we have the room set up and the clothes arranged, now I just need to vacuum and steam clean the carpet. But I also need to pull up the car seats and wash the covers, and replace the straps. I am really putting it off though, because there are spider webs on it I hate spiders so I have to attack it with a vacuum before I can even bring it upstairs. Then I will still have to scrub everything to make sure all of the spiders are gone. I also have to bring up the swing and highchair, but I will wait until after Christmas to do those.
Doing ok here, just really run down feeling and moving slot slower. We've been working on DS's new room and hope to have it finished within the next few weeks so I can work on getting stuff ready in the nursery, I have all the clothes washed and have his coming home outfits for the hospital packed, we have to get new bottles/nipples, diapers and all that still.
I'm going for weekly NST's now and have an u/s this Wednesday, they rescheduled it two weeks in a row and I was bummed so I hope they don't again or I'll be pretty PO'd!
Just finished our birth classes so hopefully we are little more prepared for when I go into labor. Still have a few things to get for nursery - dresser & glider/rocker, I need to start prepping his cloth diapers to increase their absorbency though we plan to use disposables until he gets past the meconium stage and his umbilical stump falls off. I've been cutting my work days back to 2 days per week - I've noticed I'm moving at about the pace of some of my injured and sick patients which is not a good sign, plus the poor sleep means I spend most of my work day yawning and feeling in a fog. I've been seeing my chiropractor every other week to get my spine and pelvis back in alignment which helps with back pain for most part though still having bad hip pain at night. Heartburn has really picked up and seems to be exacerbated by drinking water. Otherwise though we are doing well and I just try to take it all day by day.
