Christina - May 26

I just started my 7th month today, so close! In the last month I have had terrible backache, and rib ache! I also pee all the time!!! I think I get up at least 3 times a night! Other than that I don't have too many other consistant symptoms. I am pretty forgetful and occationally have headaches. All I know is that I am ready for the baby to get here!! When are you due? I am due august 25th.

My name is Christina as well! im due 9/15 im so anxious!! Is this your 1st??

 

Christina - May 26

It's weird when I find another Christina, doesn't seem like there are many out there! :) I am anxious too!! This is my first and it's a boy!! What about you? Sometimes I get confused about what month I am in. I am 27 weeks today according to my last period so I think that makes me 7 months?! Some of the web sites say different things.

Oh and I forgot to answer your are you showing question....yes I am! very much!!

I am about as far along as you two, I am due early Sept w/ a boy... And I am definitely showing. I just had an appointment this morning and I have gained 20 lbs. The doctor said I should 'slow down'. Yikes! My worst symptom is heartburn. I have Tums with me at all times. Other than that, getting up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night is pretty bothersome. That just started recently. I was horribly sick in the beginning, so all-in-all I feel pretty good!

Congrats KrisD! I definitely understand the annoying getting up in the middle of the night, I hate it!! I have already gained about 24 lbs and weighed about 114 before I got pregnant. Monday at my appt my doc said he wasn't concerned about my weight. Hopefully I won't gain too much more, but that is doubtful!

 

KrisD - May 26

Ya, I was a little upset about the weight comment, I was 122 at my 1st visit and I actually feel pretty good about how I look. I'll have to check my book, but I thought it seemed pretty normal. I had gained 5 lbs since my last appt and maybe she though that was a lot... who knows. I guess I will skip the ice cream after dinner now! Congrats on your boy, seems to be a lot of boys these days... Grumpy, do you know what you are having?

 

Christina - May 26

Well thats nothin, I had gained 9 lbs since my last appt and he did not seem concerned at all. I would of been hurt if I were you too!! I have tried cutting out sweets totally and exercising more.

 

KrisD - May 26

HA! Well, sounds like your doctor is a little more reasonable... I was looking at my dr and she is a very teeny woman... Maybe that has something to do with it (but then again, when I was looking around the lobby at the other pregnant women, I thought I looked pretty good!). To tell you the truth, I don't care how much I gain as long as I am able to get back to my normal weight after the baby! Besides the health of my baby, that is one of my big concerns.... What this 'after-baby' body will be like! The weather here in New England has been really bad for a few weeks straight, so I have not been as active as I normally am. I have to admit, stepping on that scale is pretty scary each visit!

I am 5 months. Cant wait. My precious one is a boy too. I have heartburn, intigestion, hurger all the time, sweet cravings, tired, lazy and lack of concentration, memeory loss etc etc. So far I have gained 13 1/2 pounds. I have also started walking 3 times a week.

 

Christina - May 26

Yes, I understand the scary scale visits!! :) I have never weighed more than 120 ever so this weight gain stuff is new to me. I feel like I look pretty good also. Sometimes I get down, but for the most part feel pretty good. I am like you I just want the baby to be healthy and to get back my "before baby body"!! I am in sunny Florida so it is easy to stay active! :)

 

KrisD - May 26

I am so jealous that you are in FL. My husband wants to move there so badly, and our close friends just moved to Ft. Myers. So we visit anyway (we go to Marco a lot - at least, before being pregnant!). At my first visit, I almost died when I weighed 122, I tried to say it was all in my chest (I had no chest). Oh well, everyone says it will all be worth it. What part of FL are you in?

 

Grumpy - May 26

Hey girls i don't now what im having i had a ultrasound at 12 weeks and havn't had one since, its depressing i want to know so badly!! i have gained 12 lbs and i don't look pregnant at all. I went to start my baby registry and the lady said "we advise you be at least 14 weeks before registering" she though i was lying when i said i was 23 weeks but im 24 now and don't look preggy i have "bump" envy

 

KrisD - May 26

Oh Grumpy! Just be happy. I sort of forget that I am pregnant and then I go to bend over and pick something up and this huge belly gets in the way. Or I go to get out of bed in the morning and I find my stomach muscles don't work and I sort of roll off the bed instead... I wish I didn't get so big so quickly!

We live in Jacksonville, we just moved here from Kentucky in January for my husband's job. It is nice here, but HOT!! Grumpy, don't worry your bump will come soon enough! I look like I am 8 months and I am 27 weeks! You should request another ultrasound, they should be giving you one soon anyway. I try to blame it on the b___bs too Kris! I hear it is worth it too, guess we will just have to bust our b___ts to get back in shape!

I'm in my 6th month. I get pains in my hips and b___tocks all night and hardly sleep. I can't stand for too long because It makes my stomach muscles ache. Headaches are a problem for me too, and forgetfulness (could be due to lack of sleep). Keep going upstairs and forgetting why the hell I went up there in the first place and opening the fridge when I'm looking for my purse, that kind of thing. Think I may actually be going senile.
