Time for a new thread ladies, the other is too long...

 

FrancesM - June 27

Morning all. Robyn, so sorry you are having such a bad AF, guess that gives us something to look forward too...NOT! I am sorry to hear about Julie! If you talk to her please pa__s on that she is in my thoughts and I hope she gets to feeling better soon...Allie, Katie, Jenna, when do you girls test? Lori, have a great trip. Stef, can't wait to hear what the Dr says today. Maybe Ava will be here this weekend. How are you feeling? Cyndi! Where are you? It has been a while!! As for me, did not make it to Curves but did take about a 15 minute walk this morning. Dh is off today and he is working around here and I thought it would be better if I stayed close to the house to help him. He is trying to get my office finished so Bean has a place to sleep in our room. I have a shower on Sunday. I am excited. Have to get things ready around here over the weekend. There should not be too much to do, TG! Good morning to everyone and Happy Friday!

Good Friday morning!!! :) I've been up since 4am again (2nd night in a row of this) and I desperately need to go back to bed but am too wound up since I have my dr. appt. in 3 hours! eeeek! Ava's been pushing up into my left ribs today which is a new feeling for me so I'm interested to see what the dr. says and how big she is.

 

AllieP. - June 27

Good morning girls! FRANCES-thanks for starting a new thread! Have fun at your shower tomorrow! :) STEF-good luck today!!! Please let us know how it goes asap! ROBYN-I hope your AF is almost done! And hopefully next month it won't be so bad. Can you go on BC? That may be something that could help! KATIE and JENNA- almost our time to test! :) LORI-happy camping!! Hope everyone else is doing well!

 

FrancesM - June 27

Stef, I am surprised that you slept as long as you did! I am excited to hear the news. I hope things are progressing well. Allie, when are you testing? Have you been feeling anything going on??

 

saramcg - June 27

STEF--- good luck at you aptt today! I hope you get some news about little ava's arrival! the waiting is just terrible isn't it?! let us know! ROBYN- so sorry about the heavy AF! hopefully they fix themselves soon! Hey- I was wondering if you wouldn't mind being the one I call/text if something happens and I have to go to the hospital unexpectedly? I'll explain what happened yesterday in a minute, but I figured I would get someone lined up sooner than later just in case! You have been doing so well for everyone else! so if you don't mind (and it's ok if you'd rather not) I think you have my email address and you could send me your #? I know that there is interent at the hospital, so hopefully I will know enough ahead of time to bring my laptop! let me know...oh and so cute about justin and the baby food...they just LOVE it..something so different from formula and baby mush cereal...Mikie devoured all of the things I gave him (well except the green beans!) and the kid still eats peas (real ones not mush) like it's his job! ALLIE, KATIE, JENNA---I am pulling for all of you this month!!! another week and hopefully we have some brand new long awaited bfp's around here!!! how exciting...we need some new babies on the way!!! by the way CINDY"S...how are you both doing???ZEN- only about 2 more weeks nd we will know what team you have in there!!! too exciting! LORI- have fun on the camping trip...we are planning one at the end of August, so you will have to let me know how it goes with brevin and give me any pointers for bringing a newborn!!! alright this is getting long..hi to anyone I missed and i am going to post again with my appt yesterday...

so I am NOT off of bedrest yet BOOOOOO....I don't have to completely lay down all day, but I have not been given any more freedom yet. I got checked yesterday and I was 2 cm dialated. I was 1 cm last week (maybe even 1.5) but I was a good 2 and she said I was really soft and 50% effaced (well we already knew that one!- I've been that way for 13 weeks now!) and the baby's head is engaged. I guess she really didn't like what she felt for a 34 week pregnancy. I was so annoyed/p__sed/whatever you want to call it b/c i was going to go to the Tiger baseball game yesterday (wheelchair or walking, it didn't matter to me) and she sent me over to L&D!!!! I had to be on e the monitro for a while b/c apparently whatever she felt made her think that I had the potential to go to a 3, 4 or more very soon! I old her I wasn't contracting, but she wanted to check to be sure. I had 3 contractions (very little) while there for about an hour and a half, but nothing to change my cervix. So now I have to take it easy for another week and go back next thursday...they wouldn't stop labor if it happened from here on out, but they want her to stay in there for at least another week or 2. so back to bedrest...but I don't have to totally lay down, just take it really easy and if i feel any contractions to drink water and lay down! It's funny b/c they don;t even really care about cervical length now...if it's not one thing, its another...so another week of bedrest...if i stay at 2 cm next week, I should be good to go, if not then I will hopefully be off bedrest at 36 weeks--We'll see!

 

ROBYN - June 27

Morning girls, I agree definitely time for a new thread. I just put Justin in his crib for a nap i normally put him in his swing but i think hes getting too big for it so i decided to try him to nap in his crib which is where he belongs to be doing that anyway so the sooner the better. Sometimes i feel guilty for changing things but i know its for the better. The kids not going to be sleeping in a swing when hes 18 to take a nap so better start the transitioning now. Plus what happens when he no longers fits in its period then what. See girls all the fun things to look forward too LOL. SO my AF still remains awful i woke up to my underwear soaked in blood and my pjs again as soon as i get sit up a gush. This has been lasting for like 3 days for the past few AFs so i am hoping that the next few days it will die down though its doesnt feel like that now. SARA - absolutely i am flattered that you want me to be the one to spread the good news i will email you. I am sorry about the modified bedrest i know it sucks trust me i did it for 3 months at the end with Justin i hated it. But its not forever and there will be an end in sight i know you know that. Trust me some days i wouldnt mind just lying in bed again especially when i dont feel well. OH girls also i have had really really bad joint pain since the pregnancy ended so bad that i can barely walk sometimes and i my hands were killing me i thought it was carpal tunnel. So i spoke with a chiropractor and she said when we are pregnant our bodies release a hormone called relaxin and our joints move to accomodate the baby once the baby is born the joints try to go back to normal and sometimes they just dont. I googled this it also has to do with the total drop of estrogen in your body from no longer being pregnant. Well i noticed since i got my AF the past few days i have had no pain whatsoever. I am talking not even being able to lift Justin or walk up the stairs to literally feeling like nothing is wrong with me. I have been taking joint vitamins called Glucosamine i dont know if thats helping but i also dont know if i am getting severe PMS which also brings on joint pain this is all interesting to me LOL. Anyway Stef good luck at your appt today. Try and sleep your days are so numbered LOL

Sara, boo hiss on the bed rest. Sounds like Anna is getting ready! Dh's cousin that is pg is on bed rest this week since her baby is engaged and she is due right when we are. She has a recheck next week. There is nothing going on with me (other than thinning) which is just fine. I want ABJj to stay till at least the 3rd or 4th week of July. Here's hoping! Sorry you missed the game...Robyn, I think the crib is a great place for a nap. I agree that he will have to get used to it as the swing seems to be shrinking! LOL That is great that he is loving food too. Some can be so picky. I hope my little man does not take after me!

 

Tory1980 - June 27

Hello lovely ladies. First off update on me and if this post turns into a book I am apologising in advance. Okay here goes ------ I have had my x-rays back and they show Scoliosis of the Spine, double curavature so 's' shaped and thay have said this is often a gentic following or could be due to trauma ergo that d__n riding accident. I was beginning to think it was all in my mind! Anyway, the 's' leans more to the left as well and the pain I have had for the past 8 (9 years in August) years is mainly due to the muscle spasms trying to correct it. Fun times. She mentioned surgery which I freaked at but told me not just yet (thanks DrMcQ) but that I need to be x-rayed every two years or sooner depening on how I progress. I am on painkillers and must say the drugs are good! LOL! Bloods came back showing inflamation and I have specialist appointment with GI Consultant on 18th July to discuss treatment/operations etc. I have had bloods back and I am severely anaemic so they are checking for a B12 deficiency (results should be back next week at the latest) since my mother suffers from it and gets injections monthly. She has also been diagnosed with osteosporosis (?sp) in the lower spine and has an MRI on the 17th July. If we were horses we would have been shot by now. Bob can't have chop since they have pulled the funding for sterilisation of males (not sure on females) across the Board in Northern ireland and gonig Private is just stupid money! How the hell do you lot pay for medical care I have no idea! Okay so where to begin with you lot. Hmmm - Robyn AF for me came lighter after Matthew, heavier after Joshua (as in I wished I could die), light with Logan and so far with Imogen nothing. No AF as yet but I did suffer from incredibly heavy periods that lasted 10 days on average and crippled me. What you have though doesn't sound normal at all and I would push to get checked out. Sounds like your lining may be getting too thick or possibly not shedding completely during each cycle. Relaxin has a lot to answer for and is what cause the Pelvic Arthropathy with me during Logan and Imogen's pregnancies. If you are having pain around your hips and pelvic bpne it might be worth getting that checked out as a cause. It needs to be treated or at least monitored carefully. Sara, did they say how far engaged you are? Rule of thumb is once baby is engaged it is usually a maximum of 3 weeks before labour starts in earnest. I would say once you are on your feet to expect little madam to make her appearance soon afterwards. Julie, I am sorry to hear you are suffering from PPD and I hope your Doctor is keeping a close eye on you - not as in bug under microscope but as in any way they can to help. Stef, any news? How'd the appointment go? France, poo on sugar levels. Shower on Sunday - your first? Seriously you should get one more often and you wouldn't smell too bad then! LOL! Only kidding. I hope it goes well for you! Lori, you are a braver woman than me to go camping with a newborn. Not likely - I learnt travelling with newborns is more stress than I needed! Who is soon to test? Sorry to anyone I have missed!

 

AllieP. - June 27

SARA-like Frances said, BOO on the bed rest! That really stinks but you don't want little Ana coming too soon! ROBYN-sheesh woman, do you feel lightheaded or anything? I know i would if i was bleeding that bad. If you start feeling dizzy or anything your iron may be getting too low. Do you take an iron supplement? I hope it slows down some soon! TORY-YAY your back! Goodness girl, i hope they can come up with a good plan of action for you on July 18. I'm glad the painkillers are working for you! Please keep us updated!

 

stefkay - June 27

I'll come back and read, but I need to lay down now...just frustrated. No progress so she didn't even do the u/s which i've been looking forward to ALL FREAKING WEEK and then said she wants me to just come back next Tuesday and she will check me again. Made it sound like she would schedule me for induction MAYBE next week,but possibly the week after which would totally make my sister miss the birth which is why she is coming here next week. She hasn't been home in 4 years and already got plan tickets. I want to cry.

 

FrancesM - June 27

Oh Stef, I am so sorry! Maybe something will happen over the weekend and she will make her appearance next week. How long is your sister staying? Maybe Tues the Dr will decide to do something and you can get in and have her before your sis goes home. I am so sorry you are frustrated and nothing is going on...

 

cyndilea1973 - June 27

Hello ladies. Wow I have missed a LOT! Stef--Sorry Ava is being stubborn. maybe she will decide to make her entrance early next week! Sara-BOO on the bedrest..You have such a good outlook though, hang in there. Katie--Sounds pretty promising with the cramps..I had some cramps before my BFP this time and I was ravenously hungry about 7 dpo..the progesterone can make you crampy too, but I am thinking you will get your bfp this month! Allie--I sure hope this is your month too, Jenna--What cd are you on? I get SO excited thinking more of us will get their long awaited bfp's, it makes me want to cry (tears of joy of course), we have all had a hard road to get to where we are. Frances--Glad the dh is back to help you get your furniture settled for ABJ. As for me, hubby still can't stop attempting to maul me.LOL. I told him to wait unitl after week 12 is over, and he is counting down the days like a child before Xmas..and my s_x drive is NIL..He went with me yesterday to Old Navy to buy some preggie jeans and we parked in the spot 'reserved for expecting mothers' and I got all weepy eyed about it. They actually had some nice low rise pg jeans (LOL..low rise will be interesting in another 3 months) that weren't hideous. the other jeans I had seen at Penneys and Sears were ACID WASH..I want comfort, but I HAVE STANDARDS. I have my big u/s Tuesday at 1, and I am excited and nervous. I still have the nausea off and on througout the day and wake up in the night starved and bursting to pee, so I feel that all is well with little peanut :) My dh had his blood drawn Weds for the cf carrier test. iread the chances of him carrying it are 1 in 25 or 96% chance he doesn't have it and if he does have the gene, the child has a 25% chance of the disease. I am praying that he does not have the gene. for once the internet research didn't freak me out! My brother has a child due Aug 1 and there is a 50% chance he is a carrier of the cf gene as well, same slim chance his wife is a carrier, so we are going to hope their little one is ok. Geez, I never thought this would be a worry of mine. I knew mu cousin had a child with cf, never thought it ran on my mom's side of the family, I thought it was from my uncle's wifes gene pool. I will have to tell my child to be tested whenever he/she decides to have children as they will have a 50% chance of being a carrier. My poor mom never knew she was a carrier! We have been thinking of names and have a girl's name : Caleigh Renee. Boy's name: all we got is Alexander as a middle name. I like the name Kellen or Daylon..but hubby is the picky one. I have missed you ladies a bunch , sorry to yack your ears off! have a wonderful weekend. +++Cyndi+++

 

april baby - June 27

Hi ladies!! I hope you are all having a wonderful Friday. Sara - sorry to hear about you staying on bed rest for another week. I sure hope it will end soon. I am glad that you are not confined to the bed any longer. I sure hope that little one stays in there for a little longer. Robyn – I am sorry to hear about af. That truly is no fun. I hope the joint pain gets better. This is the first I have ever heard about joint pain after pregnancy. I think it is a good thing to be aware of. I sure hope af leaves soon and your joints gets better. Frances – I hope you have a wonderful shower this weekend. That is so exciting you are getting closer. Tory – it is so good to hear from you. I am sorry to hear about the Scoliosis of the spine. I really hope you are not in to much pain. Stef – I sure hope your little one arrives when your sister arrives. When does your sister come to town? A lot can happen in the next few days. You never know when your little one will decide to arrive. As for me I am almost done with work so I can get home for a run and clean the house. DH is working late tonight so it is just Zipper and I at home. It should be a nice evening. It is kind of cloudy out today in MN so I think clean the house would be a good option. Tomorrow we are working on the kitchen and yes we started this project a few months ago but life gets busy and now we have little time to work on it. I am on CD 18 and 7 dpo and I am so excited to see what my chart will do over the next few days. My b___sts are a little sore but who knows what that means I feel that they are sore all the time. Today my temp sky rocketed to 98.4 which is crazy because it has never been that high before and no I didn’t have any alcohol nor do anything different that I normally do and I am feeling fine so it is crazy. Yesterdays temp was 98.10 so I am getting a little excited. I just can’t wait to test. If anyone gets a chance will you go out and look at my chart. Anyway, I will try to check in later. I hope you all have a great day. Jenna
