jamie!!!!!!!! you just had to tease us and make us wait till thursday! meanie! LOL
sabrina, CONGRATS on 30 weeks!!!!!!!!!! holy cow did that go fast or what?!?!?!?
hmmmmmmmmmmmm makes me think..... have we seen a ms. sabrina belly shot this pregnancy????????? And yes we all know it's your 5th baby, so no excuses! I knwo your belly is still beautiful!
Sabrina, I can't believe that you are 30 weeks already!!! The time has flown!!!! I remember when everyone got their BFP's!!!
Jamie, you are going to be 37 weeks tomorrow, YEAH!!!! come on Jase!!!!!
I had a dr's appt last night, everything great. I got to meet one of the other dr's that could possibly deliver me & he's great! He said that after Aug 15th if I am dialiating that I could pick the day and just go to the hospital and have my water broken! I figure I'll see what happens but will probably wait until after the 20th of Aug and see where we stand at that point. Not 100% sure how I feel about breaking my water, I'd rather be in labor first.
So all is good but I did gain a total of 15lbs so far
Sounds great Jenny!!
Keep up the good work Jenny!!!!
sounds wonderful jenny! just remember that usually when they break your water it makes labor more intense. My water broke on it's own at 38 weeks and kayleigh was still up high so I couldnt walk around at all or do anything because they were worried about the cord prolapsing, so I had to lay in bed for 12 hours (wasnt in labor for about 6hours of it though). so depending if you dropped yet I would consider that.
ohhhhhhhhhhhh jamieeeeeeeeeeee it's thurssssday! whwere's the belly girl?!?!?!! :grin:
I went off my terb last night at 10:30..that was the last pill I took.
Went to work this am and around 11 started having horrible back pains. I was a little nervous about it because I didn't have that much with Brynn. Had some contractions too, but none that were very consistent.
I decided to leave from work and went to my OB's office for a NST. My contractions started getting a little more consistent on my drive there. I was hooked up and they were about 5 or so minutes apart and consistent. She checked me and I hadn't dilated any further so she sent me home
My sitter is keeping Brynn and will bring her home later tonight so hopefully I can get some rest now because I'm tired! Either that or I should go on a nice long walk....
Whoa Jamie, this sounds like things may be progressing quite nicely though!!!! I say go for that long walk!! I went for a walk the night I went into labor with Beckett!!! You're so close!!!! Be sure to KUP!!!
Wow Jamie, you could have Jase any time. Take a ride on a bumpy road, walk, whatever, but I think he will be here soon. Will you post before you go to the hospital? I'm so excited for you!!!!!!!!!! Now I am sending easy labor vibes!!
I'm still here and I'm timing them as I type and they are about 3 minutes apart.
I met Jeremy at Pizza Hut tonight (Brynn is at the sitters still and proably will stay there tonight) and then we went to Kroger to get a few things and ended up walking around more than I thought, so hopefully that helped some!
I've had about 2.5 glasses of water since I've been home at 3:00 and the contractions just continue to get worse, so I don't think they are going to get any better. I'm going to time them a few more times and then probably just head to L&D. The worse they can do is send me home!
OH WOW, this could be it, you could have a baby tomorrow!!!!!
lol Jeremy is mad that I won't call L&D first because he's worried that I'll have to pay a copay if they don't admit me-haha. IDIOT! I asked him if I should ask them over the phone what I'm dilated right now since I already know my contractions are 3 minutes apart-haha.
Oh hun, you are in labor momma!!!! Congrats! I hope it goes smoothly for you. I would go ahead and go if they are starting to hurt. Can we start guessing size now? I am going to say 7lb 8 oz. 20 in. This is exciting. I guess we will know in a few days. Is someone goiong to post for you?
Wow, good luck Jamie!
Everyone is soooo close now!
Oh wow Jamie!!! I hope this is it!!! If it is GL!!!!!
I had my 30 week appt today...I'm just gonne paste what I put on the July board because I'm too lazy to retype...LOL
Went pretty well... here I was all worried about my one fasting level that was elevated and she said it was fine! And for some reason I was thinking I was supposed to be under 120 at 2 hours after a meal and it's 140...so the one reading I had at 135 was still fine! So I'm not having to "strictly" follow the diet though I have cut out fried and fatty foods (which I did before my test anyways due to my gall bladder :roll: )
I've gained a total of 7 lbs this pregnancy (before you boo me please know I have MUCH extra already! LOL) BP was the bst it's been in forever! I normally run mod. high averaging around 135/90 or so and today's was 110/70!!! I haven't seen a number like that since I was hemorraging after having Abby and I had the DNC! LOL So WOO HOO! I'm measuring at 32 weeks which is normal for me. And my last u/s last week gave me an all clear for a happy healthy larger (for me) baby!
We discussed my gall bladder and she told me it really needs to come out after baby is here. They told me to have it out after Abby and I never did...so looks like it will happen sometime after baby. I also learned that my gall bladder pain can most definetly be contributing to my "high" sugar levels! So it's not my eating or body!!! I had no idea that pain or being sick could throw sugar levels high. So that's a relief! I go back in 2 weeks...then 2 more 2 week appts and I'll be on weekly! EEK!!!! :shock:
Congrats Jamie!!! I can't wait to hear the news!!!!!!!!!!! I hope all goes well.
Sabrina, sounds like things are going good. Yea, for the good blood pressure. Sorry about having to have your gall bladder out. You better take care of that after Julia. No more excuses.
THIS SUCKS! They sent me home! I can't believe it! My contractions are like 2-3 minutes apart and I have to breath through them they hurt so bad! I went from 2cm around 3:00 today to 3cm tonight when she checked me, but then I walked the halls for about 45 minutes and she said I'm about the same-she could maybe stretch it a bit but I'm still about 3.
At this point, I'd rather just stay there because I'm not going to be any more comfortable at home not knowing when I should go BACK in if they hurt this much now! I just don't want to miss my epi-ha.
Aww wow you're SO close! I hope I go at 37 weeks LOL...no earlier, but anytime after that is JUST FINE with me! I get to see my lil guy on ultrasound tomorrow, but thats about it. Man...I'm so far from being as far along as you, I'm over this!!!
Good luck Jamie!!!!!
Wow Jamie!!! GL! Happy birthing!
Yayyyy that you are all doing well!
38 weeks today, still no internet but should have it on Monday. I am sick with a throat infection and feel like crap! UGH! Will take some belly pics tonight!
Miss you all!!! xox
Good luck, but you are probably already at the hospital having the baby now!
Sarah, it will be anytime now! Good luck!
Sabrina, it sounds like the gall bladder needs to come out! You are getting closer!
Melanie, it will be over before you know it!
Alright Jamie, you better have gone back in and be having a baby right now!!!
Sabrina that sucks that you have to have your galbladder out, but good to know that may be causing your high sugar levels.
Melanie you don't have too much longer now, just think, you have as long to go as I am far along!!!, not even!!!!
Sarah, I can't wait to see that belly of yours and I hope that your throat feels better soon!!
oh my god!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cant wait to get an update about jaime!!!!!!!!! good luck girl!!!!!!!!!!!
My guess is 6lbs 9oz (that's what kaleigh was hahaa) and 19.5 inches. :grin:
sabina that sounds great! well except that gall bladder, get it out of there! LOL
Sarah, belly pics!!!! yay! LOL hope you feel better quick! Strep throat has been going around here like crazy. Bri had it in jan, march, then dh got it at the same time, then dylan got it about a week ago. ugh! no fun!
melanie, i just cant believe how fast it's going with you! I swear you were just pregnant a couple days ago. yikes! PLEASE share your u/s pics.
I didn't even realize Jamie is so close...OMG....Good Luck girl...I hope everything goes well, and have an easy painless labor...Can't wait for the news either.
I say its 7lb 11 oz
So I had my ultrasound today. It was so awesome, the best one yet! He looks completely like a baby now! I got some awesome pics so I'm happy, he's measuring with a due date of June 12th (11 days early) and about 5lbs. His foot measured 6.4cms. Go look at a ruler, its crazy! He was gorgeous...and head down! No wonder my sciatic is hurting so much more lately. It was so awesome...I'm awestruck.
7 more weeks. Maybe less. I'm scheduled to be induced June 14th but shooting for more like June 7th.
Great news Melanie. I can't believe his foot is already 2.5 inches. Man!! So, you should bake him for about 5 more weeks. It won't be long Melanie and then I will be super anxious for you too!!
Wow Mel!!! He's gonna be a big boy eh? I can't wait to see pics of him!!!!
So has Jamie posted at all today? I haven't see anything from her...hope this means She's either had or is having Jase!!!!!!!!
that's awesome melanie!!!!!!!!! big healthy boy! and they gave you such a hard time about your weight! it's just all going to the baby
I'm dying to hear something on jamie!!!!!!!!! aaarrrggghhhh!!!!
I had my shower. It was AWESOME! Much smaller than my first, but then again that was less than 2 years ago and I'm having the same sex as my first child! My camera died and I got no pictures, but my parents did so I'm hoping for those. We got almost everything we needed minus maybe 4-5 things, and they are all small. I'm so excited about the video monitor, yay! And we got some awesome homemade blankets. There's one family member that made one for Zackary and its his favorite, so I was stoked when I saw that she made one for Reese. So special! Anyway, just wanted to share!
Melanie that is awesome you got to see Reese again and that he is so big!!!! You don't have too long to go now!!!!! I can't wait!!!!
Sounds like you got some great loot at your shower, good work!
Sarah, I was worried that you'd be in labor while moving. I'm glad you're settled in, even if you don't have Internet yet.
Well I had my 32 week appt. today. Pretty boring which is great! My sugar levels are great...urine, BP, Julia's HB and uterus are all perfect! We talked again about my CNM going on vacation during my 38th week. She's not going to do anything to stir up labor until she returns on the 22nd I think it is...it's the Friday of my 38th week. She said her flight will land very early that morning and her pager will be put on asap. She said she'll go right from airport to hospital if need be and is taking her scrubs with her! I love her so much! We also talked about placenta function and how she won't allow me to go over due because of the GD. I've also opted out of the Group B Strep test. Since I was + my last two pregnancies I will go ahead and get the antibitotics anyways. Even if the test came out - I would sit comfy and neither would our ped. So it's pointless to take the test...we're going to assume it's +. Ummm I think that's it... I go back in two weeks then it's weekly! YIKES!!!
Here's my 32 week pic... I'm just going to copy and paste what I wrote on the July board...cause well ya'll know me by now....I'm too lazy to retype!!!
Eeeeek! :shock: BEWARE NOW! LOL It's NOT a pretty sight!!!
Here's a comparison. I've been SO bad about taking pics this pregnancy! I've just been so busy I kept forgetting. So the only other pic I had taken was at 20 weeks...here's before....
And here's today at 32 weeks 2 days
Up close and personal with the belly... LOL
Please excuse the messy bathroom....I've been too exausted to clean properly! LOL And someday I might get those red bathroom walls painted with the white chocolate paint I bought a year ago!
Yay for the great appt. Sabrina!
Your appt. sounds great!!!! It looks like you have lost weight everywhere but your belly, which looks beautiful!!!!! You are growing wonderfully!!!
Great pic! Glad you had a good appointment!
everything sounds GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and you look fantastic! I didnt even see stretchmarks!@ lucky duck!
I cant believe it's almost time!
You look wonderful Sabrina I can't believe how far along you are!
Here's a new pic of my hugeness!!! 14 weeks
AWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!! Your popping!!!!!!!! I cant believe your going to find out the sex in less than 2 weeks!!!!!!!!!! I cant wait to hear. thinking lots of pink.............
Sabrina and Megan you both look great!
So I had another OB appointment. I was hoping I'd be dilated but no, closed tight. Oh well. However, I did lose some of my plug tonight and had like 15 contractions very close together...painful...ugh. Doc had told me today that if I went into labor he wouldn't stop it, so there's no point in going to the hospital just for contractions. I am so miserable though, I just want this to be over, yet I have so much further to go! UGH! Ok, thats my appointment/vent.
awwww melanie! enjoy it. Sit back relax and enjoy all the one on one time with little Zack that you can right now. I promise you it will be over before you know it adn you will wish you didnt rush it. LOL that little boy in there needs to cook alittle bit longer. At least 2 more weeks! you can do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is Miss Mindy at almost 25 weeks. Isn't she cute? The U/S tech said she is textbook perfect and she looked at everything from all the chambers of her heart, her kidneys, her bladder, and her brain stem. I couldn't stop smiling she is such a cute baby.
She's facinated with her fingers and her toes as you can see from the picture LOL. Oh and my doctor came in and told me I was doing awesome. I've only gained two pounds since January. My BP was wonderful at 130/70. I've been on a high ever since.
awww kathy those are GREAT pics! she is a cutie for sure!!!
She really is beautiful! I love the name. I don't think I have heard you use it before. It fits so well with the other kids names! So, cute.
I had a dr's appt this morning - nothing special, h/r's great, I've gained a total of 25lbs so far, and little Miss Bailey is doing just fine!
My next appt is in 2 weeks, I have to do my one hour test and get my rogham shot....fun!!!
All in all everything's going good.
I must take a belly pic soon for you all, I'm HUGE!!! I look like I'm already 9 months preggo!!
sounds great and I CANT WAIT to see the belly pic! get on it girl!!!!!!!!!!!! no teasing!
Kathy those pics are great!!!! What a sweet baby girl!!!!!
Jenny, lets see that belly!!! Don't worry I am right there with you, I already look 20 weeks!!!!
Okay Megan, I still look bigger than you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate this flab on my belly. I never had it in my life, and now it won't go away.
I hope everything is going alright for you Sabrina!!!
Melanie-It will be over soon!! This sounds bad, but I am missing being pregnant. You know I have been pregnant the last two summers.
Kathy-Very cute pics!!
Jenny- I love the name and we would like to see some belly shots. I know I popped out a lot quicker with Macy. I was smuge!! I gained the same amount of weight with both pregnancies, but I just looked bigger with Macy. I guess the skin was already stretched.
Just thought I'd give a quick update...
I had my 34 week appt. last Friday and everything is going great! I go back next week and I'm on weekly appts from here on out. I cna't believe how it's going so quickly now. I had about 2 weeks there where it seemed like an eternity but now it seems to be flying! I had all 4 of my kids in my 38th week which is only 3 weeks from Tuesday! YIKES! :shock: I still feel great! Of course I feel like I'll never be able to bend over and pick things up or tie my shoes again, but other than that I really don't have any horrid complaints! So maybe that's why time seems to be flying.
On a side note...I've been looking more and more into having a tubal ligation done. Still not 100% sure but I know I felt "done" with Abby. But always seem to go back to that longing for a new baby. But I feel like I'm ready to be done having babies and moving onto the next stage, if that makes sense. I'm going to talk to my CNM about it this week. I really only have 2 concerns, one is that I've read and talked to many women who say their AF's have gotten horrid after they had it done (And mine were that way already!) and two is I want to make sure it won't hormonaly imbalance me for BFing. If there's even a slight chance it would I would wait until after I'm done BFing to have it done...though I don't really want to wait that long because honestly I don't want to change my mind....we shall see...
Ok so that wasn't so much of a quick update
Wow Sabrina, you are getting closer and closer!!!! I feel like I want another baby that I can truly enjoy in about 4 more years, but I don't think DH is too keen on that idea. He says two is enough.
