I know how you feel about no one talking on these forums. I guess people are really busy. Congrats on making it to the third trimester! I will be 32 weeks tomorrow! I'm quite nervous, expecially since this is our first child. My husband and I are very excited. I just love when she kicks and plays around in there- it lets me know she's doing well! I have a ob appt. Today- after 30 weeks, you see your Dr. Every two weeks. I can't believe how fast it's been. It seems like only yesterday we found out we were pregnant.
Tell me some of the symptoms you've been experiencing. Me- the balls of my feet hurt, pubic joint pain, and back pain. Incontinence too!
Hello ladies. I definately can relate to the no one talking on this particular forum. I always am hoping someone is talking baout something jsut because this is my first bundle and like to read about everyones experiences and stuff. So if yall will write under the 3rd trimester then I will do my best to respond. Deal? I mean who knows maybe others will follow. Lol.
Congrats to the both of you. I had a dotors appt. Today and got my rhogam shot. Ouch. So far the baby is really healthy and all seems to be going well. Right now she is weighing in @ 2lbs 0oz. She is super active now a days and I like you enjoy the movement, for the mose part except when she digs her heel up in my rib and its tough to breathe. Lol. I talk to her when she moves and like to think shes soaking in the info im taling to her about.
Ive been fortunate not to have morning sickness or feelings of uncomfort. I have been more hungry it seems.Lol. For all sorts of foods. Although nothing seems to really be the best anymore.
Well thats alittle about me hopefully you dont feel alone on here.
Hi to the both of you....Just wanted yall to know that I am 28 wks 2 days today and its sooo exciting...She is moving around and everything. I went to the doctor monday (10-10-05) and they said everything was doing great just that my iron was kinda low so they put me on iron pills....Either one of you have to take them? Well keep posting and we can let each other know how things are going...
Wow, you're due date must be just two or three days after mine! Mine is january 6th. Everytime I come on here to talk I realize that messages have been posted from august or something and then I can't find hardly anyone to talk to. I only come on here about once a week though. I just thought i'd say hello to you since we are due around the same time.
Hmm I Feel Like Writing So Sorry If Its Long....lol....
So it seems as though a couple of our due dates are close to eachother. Im am due jan.10th and am like I said enjoying her movement. Although the other nite I could nite sleep a wink cause she is definately more active at nite. She usually gets all riled up around 1030 and will go strong till about 4am. Lol. She loves diggin her heels into me. Lol.
Hmmm. As for the iron, I actually just got it checked and it normal so I luckily dont have to take another pill. Mine are horse pills already. Lol.
Uh im not sure if you like raisens but they say they are really good for iron. My ma had low iron when she was prego with me but the iron pill was too strong for her so she got used to munching on raisens.
As for the getting on and there being no recent posts... I know the feeling but hopefully we all can keep eachother updted at least in this forum...Maybe we'll start a trend. Lol.
Neat fact I learned...The doctors and fellow mothers were telling me that right about this time...6months she should start being able to taste the things you taste. Which is neat...They can hear you when you speak and recgonize your voice. So start talking to your tummies ladies...If you already are keep it up. Hey it cant hurt.
Question::: if you ladies are up for it I was wondering about you other moms and your dreaded weight....Dun duh duh dun....You dont have to share you weight if you are worried about it but I was just thinking about it because when some people ask me how far along I am they either say wow your big for 6mon. Or you are small for 6months.
So I will start and if you are comfortable following feel free...Besides they say this is the only time in our llives when our weight "really" doesnt matter....
Normally I weigh in @ 130....And I am so far @ 156....I dont look chubby its really on in my tummy. My face and arms are about normal sooo ...
You can just mention the # of lbs you gained if you would like...Or not ...Thats ok too.
So lets keep the chat going ladies....
And again congrats to you all....
i had to retake my glucose test yeterday bc my first one came back abnormal. I had to fast until it was over which was about noon. Let me tell you, it was not fun. I not only was stuck with the needle four times, but I was very hungry afterward!
Kismit, to answer your question, I have gained a lillte over 30 lbs. I weigh around 140 lbs. I don't think it's a big deal to tell people- we're supposed to gain weight- if that's what it takes to have a healthy baby, then pack on the pounds baby!!! :)
i'm also glad you addressed the iron issue. I try to eat raisins because I know they're good for me. I'm really glad to know they're high in iron!
I'm bad about eating vegetables, so I need a good source of iron.
My husband and I took a tour of the maternity ward at the hospital today and it was really nice. I love how the hospital is big about the "rooming in" policy. I definitely want my baby with me the whole time, esp since it's our first! Gosh, i'm so excited and nervous. Btw, I am 32 weeks and 2 days!!! Eight more weeks to go!
Ctrule-- hope your test results come back ok this time. Yea keep up the good work with the raisens. I have yet to tour the hospital...Ive still got some time. I will be 28wks tomorrow (10-17-05). Over the last week my tummy has really taken shape...She's gotten round.Lol. I actually have a break from doc appt for another 2wks. Then ive got a few lined up one after the othr from there....Lol.
hope everyone is feeling ok. Congratulations kismit on making it to the 28th week! Yay! What aches and pains have you been experiencing? With me, sometimes she'll lay weird and I have a hard time walking and it's quite uncomfortable. Your belly will definitely round out and expanddddddd!! The stretch marks on the sides of my belly are getting worse and worse. It's a little scary. I sure hope they go away afteward. I really hope the glucose test results come back normal too. My Dr. Said it was strange that the results were abnormal and that 3 other patients within the last month or so had abnormal when they shouldn't have as well. Strange.
Has anyone been having mood swings lately?? I find I get very irritated now! I mean really irritated- angry is more like it! Lol. It's not fun.
Keep updating us mommies-to-be! (mommy2b06- hope you're doing well- haven't heard from you in a while)
The baby has been pushing on my left side for some time now- I think it's her most comfortable position- for her anyway. Lol. I've been having period like cramps for over a week now. It worries me. I hope it's not a sign of going into early labor. I would be happy to be able to carry until at least the 38th or 39th week. I don't think that should be a problem, seeing as with your first you tend to carry full term or even after.
Have a good evening everyone! (husband is home from work-yay!)
p.S. My heartburn has returned with a vengeance. :(
Ctrule-- yes im excited to make it another wek with her being healthy. As for my aches and pains...Hmm...Its definately getting tougher to get in and out of bed or to even get off the couch.Lol. Mainly at nite or early in the morning...Those are the toughest of times. I havent really been achy...Maybe my back at times... I could use a foot and leg massage though...Cant we all...!
Sleeping is getting more tricky. She is super active at nite and early morning. Not too mention I keep wanting to switch sides when im sleeping and everytime I do my pelvic bone pops so loud its crazy.Lol. I sear im fallin apart.Lol
have you been rubbing cream or lotion on your belly for the stretch marks? Im sure if we're meant to get em we will but it doesnt hurt to lessen the effects. Ive been using a shea butter creme that I found at the store. It all natural will lots of vitamins and moisturizers. I rub it on my tummy and around my chest ...Like I said it cant hurt. The more often you can do it the healthyier your skin will be. Just my opinion though.
I know what you mean when you say shes crawled up in waht seems to be her favorite spot. I think we all are experiencing our little ones cozy spot...Meaning cozy for them of course.
Well thats enough about me and my blessed baby girl....
Hope you all are doing well in your pregnancies....
(kismit, I feel like this our forum since we talk the most- lol)
i totally know what you mean about having trouble getting in and out of bed and off the couch! It gets worse. My husband has to help me up all the time and he puts my socks and shoes on for me too. I told my friend how when i'm laying in bed, I have to get a rolling start by rocking from side to side to get up! Lol!!
Yes, sleep does become a tricky situation. I, like you, toss and turn from side to side a lot during the night too. I only get up once though during the night to pee. I just hope by the time I hit the 35th week and on I don't have to get up 4-5 times a night as i'm told.
Lol about your pubic bone popping!!!
I use palmer's shea butter for my stretch marks. I've been good about using it consistently for over three months now!! I'm starting to run out so i'll have to get more soon. I agree with you, it does not hurt to use it! I haven't thought to use it on my chest though- thanks for the tip!!! :)
Hi everyone. Just wanted to let yall know that im doing good. Thanks for asking. Im 29 weeks and a day today. Getting bigger of course. Sorry I havnt posted in a while ive been trying to work alot and make the money. Ill keep yall up to date.
Hi everyone I am 34 weeks pregnant and dont know the sex of bubby does anyone know any nice girls names?And also do you think baby needs a middle name?My partner doesn't but I do.Please tell me what you think nobody replyed to it.
