Hey! I'm so excited to be over here now. The relief is great from not worrying about bleeding, etc. How are you today?

 

AmyF - April 10

HEY! OVER HERE!

 

AmyF - April 10

I know- it was quite a shocker to see I jumped from 12w to 13w in just one day- literally! :) I'm pretty excited. Sorry to hear about the little one throwing tantrums :( I like it over here- it feels nice and safe for the time being. hee hee. I'm one day ahead of you now? Dr. hasn't told me my new due date b/c she wants to wait until my next u/s. Yep- she did an u/s when I came in thursday and did measurements. She said my date will fluctuate by 2 weeks- yay! I'm 13w4 days- I CAN'T believe it. I noticed the linea nigra on Sunday- thought that was pretty interesting.

i never got linea nigra, still havent, id be careful with your next us, ive heard many conflicting things about dating by later us (thats why if your unsure of your dates doc will do us right away) i know i like it over here too....not too much talk about miscarraige so i lilke that....how are you feeling?

 

AmyF - April 10

Totally true. I mean, being that I had a m/c last year I didn't want to think about that (always thinking positive!)... This Dr. is really good, so I mean.. I've always been scanning one week ahead so I don't doubt her judgement. She said the farther along you are- it's harder to tell because all babies grow at different paces so since I'll only be at 17w maybe that's why she might re-evaluate.? Not sure. Feeling great today except for the mild cramping. I've been having more and more the past couple of days. I felt a small bit of fluttering last night but it was only when I was laying on my right side and I was totally relaxed. It was pretty cool.

OH- and headaches. Been having quite a few of those.

HannahBaby - April 10

hey amy girl. just wait until baby starts kicking your b___t!! Hannah used to kick me so hard that i would grab my stomach (scared my husband half to death a few times he thought i was having contractions!!) I took hannah to the play ground today she had fun going down slides with mommy and daddy. Its SO nice here today, i have all my windows open and the birds are chirping away. well i gota go put hannah to bed before prision break comes on haha. talk to you tomorrow

Good morning amy

 

AmyF - April 11

morning! Yep, definitely confirmed last night- having movement in the belly although it was difficult to stay asleep. I'm not used to feeling my belly moving!

 

HannahBaby - April 11

Good for you!! I have been feeling a few nudges here and there. Its just strange because i remember the punches hannah threw that would just jolt my tummy so i am anxiously wait for those.But hey movement is movement ill take anything. I look so pregnant today its scary. My doc told me not to worry because 1)im losing weight (not on purpose) and 2) people with their 2nd child generally show 2-4 weeks earlier than people with their first. I started to show at 15 weeks with hannah and im 13 weeks 4 days today so im pretty much right on track. Almost puked this morning b__wing my nose....gets me everything i have to b__w my nose standing in front of something that i could puke in (kitchen sink is my fav.) how are you feeling today??

Feeling great except I just ate a nutrigrain bar and my tummy is growling. Grrr. I hope this doesn't mean my appet_te has grown. That would be bad. I've only gained 6 lbs, but I'm overweight so I'm happy I haven't gained more. Hopefully after the baby (wishful thinking) I'll be able to get back to a size I can like :) My twin was telling me if she has a baby she'll just pump and use the control/bottle feed method so she knows how much the baby is getting. Have you heard of that? Would it work? I'm pretty large b___sted so I don't know if the baby would be able to 'latch on' so to speak.

 

HannahBaby - April 11

its hard to pump exclusively, i thought about it but its hard to keep up your milk supply and you need to buy an extremely good (and extremely expensive pump) and i didnt want to spend all that money then give up after a few months. ive lost 5 lbs since getting pregnant, but im also still 10lbs heavier from hannahs pregnancy, i dont worry about weight too much because it will consume you

 

HannahBaby - April 11

ps. thats so cool you have a twin!!!

 

AmyF - April 11

Thanks :) Actually, my friend bought a really expensive pump (electric/double) so I might be able to rent it from her or something. I wouldn't want to just borrow it without giving her some money. Just a thought. Ugh- I went up to HR and they said they only give you 6-8 weeks of paid leave for the baby after it's born. Can you believe that? I was shell shocked and told her that if the daycare doesn't take them until 3 months then I'll have to be off and I thought you got 12 weeks (unpaid/paid doesn't matter because I know some companies don't pay you for mat. leave). Her reply? Well, you'll just have to find someone to watch the baby until then. Um- hello. Everyone lives away from me. I'm sure my boss will be accomodating but that p__sed me off earlier. I had to buy a Baby Ruth to calm me down LOL.

I thought being preggo, I'd be hot. I'm actually colder. My hands and feet can never be warm enough. Have you noticed your hands are dry as a bone?

 

HannahBaby - April 11

im always hot. my husband hates it. im always turning the fan on when he falls asleep. Ive been pretty busy today went for a long walk now trying to get hannah in for a nap but shes up there talking away. Ive been pretty good today. My hands are always dry, (we have hard water and dry skin just runs it the family) mmmm baby ruth!! Im going to be good this pregnancy :o) i gained 40 *unnecessary* pounds with hannah ( i gained 20 in 2 months from eating so much halloween candy!!) I still am 10lbs over what i weighed with Hannah so i am really going to try and not gain more than 20 lbs but if i do, then i do. No big deal. That really sucks about your medical/maternity leave. Im so glad that i dont have to worry about that, its such a pain in the a__s to get the time and money that you deserve. Doesnt this month feel like it is flying by??!!
