Weekly check in! 12/17 - 12/21

Thought I'd get a weekly check in started.. Smile Maybe carry it through the rest of our preggy days. Biggrin Just some random questions..

1. What's one pregnancy symptom you're experiencing hot and heavy right now?

2. What kind of birth plan are you preparing - meds for pain or working on au naturale?

3. Is this your last or do you think you'll have more?

Biggrin

Indigestion Sad It started last night.. BLAH!!

2. What kind of birth plan are you preparing - meds for pain or working on au naturale?

I went med free with DD so if it goes similar, I'd like to stay med free but otherwise, drug me up! Lol

3. Is this your last or do you think you'll have more?

For now, DH says he's happy with having one girl and one boy. My gut feels good with one of each but I can't say I'm 100% confident we're done.. But I'm about 95% sure. Wink

1. What's one pregnancy symptom you're experiencing hot and heavy right now? ITCHING!!! It's horrific. My entire body itches non-stop and nothing helps. It has hit me EVERY pregnancy now, right at 16 weeks like clock-work. The last two times, it went away around 24 weeks, so I can only hope it goes away this time also.

2. What kind of birth plan are you preparing - meds for pain or working on au naturale? I don't do much of a birth plan. I just go with the flow, whatever feels right in the moment. I'm trying to mentally prepare myself to go with no pain meds because my BP dropped pretty low, like 70s/40s with DS2 when I got my epidural.

3. Is this your last or do you think you'll have more?About 90% sure it's our last. Sad

Biggrin

ETA: I actually think I'm okay with being done after this. I just lurked onto a thread where people were comparing darkness of lines at 9dpo, 10dpo, etc. And it gave me the same early pregnancy anxiety that I've had every time, especially since my m/c. I think I could be okay with not going through that part of it again. But it does make me sad that this will be my last time to snuggle my own little newborn.

1. What's one pregnancy symptom you're experiencing hot and heavy right now? Still having morning sickness. Yes, still.

2. What kind of birth plan are you preparing - meds for pain or working on au naturale? Pain meds. I'm a big baby when it comes to pain and I cry really easily, so... there will be no "going naturally" for me, unless of course they don't have time for an epi

3. Is this your last or do you think you'll have more? We'll have more. I hate to even think of going through another pregnancy while I'm still in the middle of this one, but I'd really like for DH to have a little boy. Although, if we have another girl that'd be just fine too!

1. What's one pregnancy symptom you're experiencing hot and heavy right now?
Leg cramps, only at night. But horrible Sad Oh, also eating chocolate and candy. Went from needing sour to all sweet now Sad

2. What kind of birth plan are you preparing - meds for pain or working on au naturale?
Give me the epi asap Smile Not that it worked properly with either of my 2 deliveries, but third times a charm, right?

3. Is this your last or do you think you'll have more?
DH and I always agreed we'd have an even number of kids (we're both one of 3 kids and want to avoid any kid feeling 'left out' - in theory), so I have a feeling we'll go for #4 a couple years after this one (if we can figure out a way to be able to afford it...)

1. What's one pregnancy symptom you're experiencing hot and heavy right now? Constipation...the dr. gave me zofran after last weeks debacle and O...M...G! I know you guys said things about it, but I only used it twice and holy cow is it bad. Other than that I don't feel pregnant still. Sad

2. What kind of birth plan are you preparing - meds for pain or working on au naturale? I would love a VBAC going au naturale, but if this baby has issues with the antibody, it will probably end up as a repeat c-section quite early.

3. Is this your last or do you think you'll have more? I would love more, but since I have this antibody I doubt we will be able to afford it. Nor will we want to go through all the health issues :/

1. What's one pregnancy symptom you're experiencing hot and heavy right now? I'd have to say indigestion too.. I just am so uncomfortable after I eat.. especially lunch/dinner.. for breakfast I am fine.

2. What kind of birth plan are you preparing - meds for pain or working on au naturale? More than likely c-section again. I'm already starting to swell some :/ My BP hasn't been the best the past couple of times. I'm ok with it though..

3. Is this your last or do you think you'll have more?I don't think so. We always wanted just 2 but you never know! There could always be a surprise baby lol

Sorry I haven't been around.....I've been soooo busy at work, plus getting ready for Christmas & all.

1.) I'm feeling good but I've developed terrible varicose veins in my legs that look so nasty. They get painful when I'm at work on my feet for 12 hrs a day! I thought abt wearing compression stockings but the veins start at my thigh and go right to my groin. Never had them with DS so it's strange, I just hope they go away after....

2) I'm not opposed to meds for birth but I know I don't want an epidural. I think I'll be asking my doc if I can just get a shot of something although I'm also leaning towards natural!

3) I would love more, and so would my SO but it really depends on finances. I'm still paying off student loans plus we both have car payments. It really depends, if my MIL was willing to stay with us so my SO could work full time then it would be more possible.

1. What's one pregnancy symptom you're experiencing hot and heavy right now?
Hot and heavy? Well... I'm still really fatigued and I get super hot really easily... But that's about it.

2. What kind of birth plan are you preparing - meds for pain or working on au naturale?
I am planning for an all natural birth again. I am open to needing the pain meds but I am aiming to play the same game as last time Smile

3. Is this your last or do you think you'll have more?
I am planning on having more. This is my second but my soon-to-be Hubby's first. and I think we'll have 1-2 more after this baby... when the time comes.
