girl you look fan-tas-tic! wow! thanks for thinking of us and sharing.
I'm at negative 11lbs now. I gained 3 in 2 weeks, UGH!!! I'm so worried I'm gonna balloon up!
Well, at least you didn't start off gaining right away like me As of today, I'm up 43 pounds :shock:
Ugh! That is sooooooooooo unfair!!! There is nothing negative about my weight gain!!! I feel disgusting! You look great! Jamie looks awesome too!!!
Here are my 34 week pics! I feel soooooooo much bigger this time around!
I had an u/s last Monday to check fetal growth and my amniotic fluid levels (they were dangerously low with Max) and all looked perfect! Doc said bubs was in approx 50th percentile. We didn't get any shots b/c there really wasn't anything worth printing! Bubs is head down so I am all set for a VBAC provided I go into labour naturally! I am in the process of talking with a student doula who needs to attend 3 births to be qualified, we chatted for over an hour on the phone last week and she is coming over on Wed! She has had a VBAC so should be a great support. I am excited about the prospect of a VBAC though I must admit terrified at the same time! I have never even had a contraction!!! Yikes!
Physically I feel like the size of a house, very awkward and just generally uncomfortable. I have pretty much grown out of all of my maternity clothes which should make the next 4 plus weeks interesting! I am sooooooooo sick of my one pair of black and very unatractive yoga pants! Sigh.... No braxton hicks as yet, lots of back pain and just plain old tired! Yep I am having a big bi*ch and moan!! LOL! Sorry! Really I shouldn't complain as I do feel well other than the normal heavily pg while caring for a cheeky monkey toddler stuff!
On the home front I FINALLY finished my Masters of Social Work to me!! We are moving house Friday week and then it wont be long til bubs is here! :eek: Life is VERY busy!
Good luck to you Sarah! Well, the nice thing about moving is that if you're going to go into labor on your own, that should help! Hopefully you'll get everything done first though
Just had an appointment today myself, and had contractions all through the dang NST-a few I had to breath through almost! They were much stronger than normal.
Of course, they didn't say anything about them. I only have 17 more days on the meds and then I'm ready! They have me 4 days ahead of what my ticker says.
WOW! your both just so close! I cant wait!!!!!! We are all going to have to start keeping close tabs on you two!
Sarah I am going to say you will go 5-7 days early. Jamie, I say 2.5 weeks early. :grin:
Jamie, I say 2.5 weeks early. :grin:
Man, I hope so because every day is becoming more miserable and once i'm off this med I think it's going to be a horrible few days after! I need to find a cage to lock myself in-haha
Sarah I am going to say you will go 5-7 days early.
Oooooooooooooooooooooh! I sooooooooooo hope you are right! Fingers crossed! My mum was late with my brother and I, hopefully that isn't genetic!
Hugs to you Jamie, I really shouldn't complain about how yucky I feel!
Lovely bellies, ladies! You all look great
I can't wait to hear of any news!! Do you all have buddies that are posting for you?
My two buddies have been on bed rest and haven't been online. Actually one of them is Shannon (bunniemom), but I haven't seen her post in a long time and haven't contacted her.
I'll probably have my mom log on for me or if you don't see me post in 2 days, you'll know where I am
I don't have a buddy and I am a meanie b/c I will want to post the news myself so you may have to wait a few days! If I can I will post when I am in labour before I go to hospital and will get DH to pop on to let you know that all is okay. But when it comes to announcing sex and name I want to do that!
HeHe Sarah!! We know how you are!!! I bet you are having a girl this time! I have a 50/50 chance!
Jamie and Sarah, not too much longer now!!!! That is great, I can't wait to see what you are having Sarah!!!
I had a scan today and I am so pumped now!!!! The baby measured perfect 9+6 w/ 171 bpm h/b!!!!!!!!! The baby looked great and was wiggling about!!!
I go back in two weeks for another, WOO HOO!!!!
that's AWESOME megan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm soooo happy for you! :grin:
OMG I can't believe how close you ladies are!!!
Glad you got to see the little bean again Megan!!!
Wow, where is the time going??? I can't believe I'm half way through this pregnancy! I'm really starting to feel pregnant and boy do I look it! I will try to take some pix ASAP for you ladies.
Man soon were gonna be mama's of 2 or more!
Maybe you will have a girl this time Megan! Both of my girls heartbeats stayed up around 153 after the initial rapid beat at the beginning.
I was going to ask you for pics Jenny!! Okay Megan you too. You are a little over two months now. We might be able to see a little bloated belly.
Man this thread gives me baby fever!!!!!!!!!! Sometimes I can't let myself look..lol.
Everyone looks so good!
Megan, I'm glad your scan went so well, I admit that I accidently found your post that you were worried...I wasn't stalking you or anything, I just followed it from the home page and didn't even know it was you until I got there!! :oops:
Sarah, you're definitely bigger this time! I remember that you looked very tiny last time to me. I guess it's true what they say that you're bigger the second time around! You look GREAT!
I CANNOT wait for the birth stories and pictures to start!!
Great bellies! A small part of me wants to be right there with ya!
I'm so going to cry when I see the newborn pics and birth stories.
Great news Megan!! Glad to hear that all is well!
How exciting that there will be brand new babies soon
Man this thread gives me baby fever!!!!!!!!!! Sometimes I can't let myself look..lol.
Congrats on a great u/s Megan!!!! I can't wait to see some pics!
Sarah and Jaime, I can't believe you all are going to be ready to pop any day now! Ahhhh!!!!! Where did the time go?! It's scarey how fast it really flies. I can't wait to hear all about your births and new babies!
As for me, I have my u/s tomorrow to rescan Julia's spine. I have faith that all is alright though and lucky me I'll get to see her again! YAY!!!! I'm on 2 week appts now. I failed my GD test by 8 points! BOO!!!! BUT, I opted out of the 3 hour test and am just testing my levels 4 times a day from home. My CNM thinks that I just wasn't ready for all that sugar. Since I've been on a pretty good diet this time around. My body just wasn't used to all that sugar. And since I was SO close to passing, we're just gonna do a watch and see. If my fasting levels in the morning start to get too high then I'll have to go to the strict diet. Blah! Praying I don't! I love my pasta salad too much! LOL Anyways, that's about it on me. Appts. have been going great. Last Thursday I was 28 weeks and measures 29. So just a tad on the larger side. BP has been awesome this time around. Really no complaints other than the uncomfy tummy that comes with pregnancy. But it's really not that bad this time around. I am starting to have my gall bladder pains again so I started on my Prilosec again and hoping this will take care of it as it did with Abby.
Jenny, how's it going with your CNM? Are you still liking her? I sure hope your birth experience with a midwife is as great as mine has been!
I had my u/s this morning...I'll just paste what I wrote on the July board...
And all went great!!! She said it was the spine in the neck she was having a hard time seeing and everything is closed and growing as it should. She also pointed out the lower portion of the brain that was growing normally and the skin was smooth which she said is almost a dead on indicator that the spine is perfect as well! Julia weighs 3 lbs 9 oz and is on track to be another 8 lb baby for me! LOL My boys were all 6 lbers and miss Abigail was just shy of 8 lbs. We got a very up close and personal shot of her "business" and have concluded without a doubt she is a girl! LOL
Glad to hear that the u/s went so well Sabrina
Yay! I so wish I could get a weight estimate on Jase! I asked yesterday, but she said it would take too long to do the full scan and since I just get my fluids checked twice a week, that only takes 2 minutes.
Jase had his mouth open and was sticking his tongue out though so she stopped the scan to watch him for a bit-it was so neat! He STILL will not look at us though! Never once has he turned his head! He's not afraid of showing us his parts either
OH SABRINA! that's wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry you had to go through the worrying but glad you got a second peek. :grin:
Jamie, how are you doing contraction wise and taking it easy?!?!? thinking of ya girl!
So far, so good! I have an appt tomorrow morning and am going to get confirmation that I'll be able to stop my meds on Thursday....so ask me next week how I'm doing and it may be a different story
Glad to hear that you are doing well Jamie!! Not too much longer now!
Had my appt this morning and I am no 2cm and 60% effaced. I can officially go off my meds on Thursday! WOO HOO!!! I'm pumped!
Everything looked good today! She said I can get my rest and not have to wake up in the middle of the night to take my meds this week because if I go in labor, she's not worrying about it since everything looks so good! Yay for sleep-even though I'll be up anyway peeing
So, since I am caught up at work and sitting here bored to death for the next 2 1/2 hours, hopefully I only have 4-5 more days here!! I honestly can't even make up something for myself to do because I'm so organized and caught up-haha. It's such a nice day I might just act like I'm doing something and take it outside to get some sun
holy cow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! there will be a baby soon!!!!!!!!! yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! go outside and enjoy the sun girl :grin:
So exciting ladies!! I can't believe we're going to have a couple of babies in the next month (or week with Jamie)!!
Everyone is looking great - can't wait for birth stories!
Good luck with the VBAC Sarah - you will be a champ, I'm sure !
Really random but here's me at 31 weeks!
You look wonderful Melanie!!!!!!!!!!
Jamie, okay now you can get out and take long walks, drive on bumpy roads, and DTD plenty. It is safe for you to have Jase now!!!!!!!!! Did I miss anything in there girls. Those are some of the things I did to go into labor. I will have to say (TMI) that DTD put me in labor both times!!!
Okay Sarah, I haven't heard from you, but I know you are moving. Hmmmmm!
Jenny, your belly is perfect too!!!
Oh and Megan, we want to see some belly shots now.
and DTD plenty.
HA! I haven't let Jeremy come near me for 8 months now so it won't be happening anytime soon-lol
Melaine you look awsome!!! I love that smile of yours!!!
OMG Jamie I can't believe how close you & Sarah are!!! This is getting soooo exciting!!!
Wow you guys are going to have two babies SOON!!! I am so excited!!! I can't wait to hear all about it and finally hear what Sarah is going to have!!
Melanie you look great!! I can't believe how far along you are already, it seems like the time has flown!!!

No time to comment on anyone - SORRY!
We moved on the w/e! I am EXHAUSTED! No interent until the 30th! I am currently sitting on our empty house on the floor b/c I had some urgent e-mails to send! Just wanted to let you know I am fine, no sign of bubs but I have told him or her that come next week an eviction notice will be served, I am soooooo ready!
Miss you all! Hope to have the internet on before bubs gets here!!
Glad to hear it all went well Sarah!

sarah, glad you got moved and cant wait to see lil bub pics!!!!!!!!
jamie, I say cook the little boy for another week.... I ALWAYS wanted to have a baby in May...... :grin: I think it's just the perfect month. RELAX RELAX RELAX while you can!
I need more belly pics girls. Been awhile since we hve seen Megans..............
Alright ladies, without further adieu here are some pics of my gut!!!
Flashback... 4 weeks
I had my ob appt today and everything went well, he couldn't find the h/b with the doppler so I got another scan :yahoo:!!! The baby looks great and the heart was beating away!!
YAY! loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee the belly! You are too dang cute!
And hooray for another scan! They could never find the heartbeat with the doppler with me until after 12 weeks cause I have a tilted uterus. :roll:
My next belly pic will be on Thursday.
I'm glad you got to see the baby again Megan. And btw I look like I have your belly, but the only problem is, I'm not preggo anymore. LOL!!!!
You look great!
I can't wait to see the next one Jamie. Who knows, maybe by Thursday, you will be in labor.
Megan you look awesome girl!!!! I would kill for your body now and you're almost 12 weeks preggo! LOL
Sarah, so glad to hear everything is going so well!!! I can't wait for you to have that little one because I can't STAND not knowing if it's a boy or a girl!!! AH!!!!!! Easy labor vibes to ya, cause I think you'll go soon!!!
Jaime I can't wait to see your next pic!!!! You're so close I don't think it'll be long for you either.... it's like a race between you and Sarah, wouldn't it be neat if ya'll had the babies on the same day...and if Sarah has a girl you have future bride and grooms on your hands! LOL
Well my milestone is I'm 30 WEEKS today!!!! My sugar levels are creeping up so as of today I started to GD diet...blah! I actually don't mind the diet, but I can only get so creative with chicken and turkey! LOL Can't wait to bend over to tie my shoes normal again... LOL My next appt. is on Thursday!
Oh and Megan...my CNM still has a hard time getting h/b on Julia. All my kids have been that way, for the same reason as Jess....stupid tilted uterus! LOL HOWEVER...how nice to get the extra scans! :woohoo:
Yay for 30 weeks Sabrina!!!!!!!!!! Only 10 more to go. Did you go full term with the others? I am so anxious for all of you preggo momma's!!!!!
Thanks! Nope never made it to my EDD with any of my kiddos. They've all been born in the 38th week. Praying that little miss Julia stays on track with her brothers and sister!!! Mama's banking on a 3rd week of June baby!!! LOL
