Emily - April 12

My doc freaked me out yesterday. I went in for my appointment and we saw the nurse (I was dehydrated a bit (big surprise since I was sick Sun and Mon)) I also lost 6 lbs. They were a little concerned about that. My doc asked me if I had been trying to lose wieght, ah well I wasn';t trying to do anything but eat. Then he asked about my appit_te. He must be nuts. I eat anything I can get my hands on. When we go out, I order teh meal that comes with salad and a potato. the other day I even had room for cheesecake! I love cheesecake! I sometimes order cheese on my fris. I know really healthy. I lost wiehgt with Mary the whole time so I thought it was strage he start to worry now. Of course I am smaller than I was then (not much, but a bit) and and I had lost only a lb or two each visit and this time I have been gaining a lb or tow. I was up 15 lbs form my pre pregnancy wieght and now I am up only 9. He listened to the heartbeat and then he goes, oh well lets go take a peek shall we. And normally I would be thinking, oh great, yah. but I was a little concerned as to why he wanted to. Was he concerned about the baby? With Mary I had a total of two u/s. Both with the tech that were scheduled in advance. So this time I have had one witht he tech and three that he has done. I also had my sugar test. I drank that awful stuff beofre my appointment and then got my blood drawn afterward. Tehe u/s took up some of that time we would have had to wait. The doc said everything looked good. Good heartbeat, good fluid. He said that is a good sign of a healthy baby, good fluid. Also it's still a girl. my dh isn't still hoping for a boy. After having one little girl, he just loves the thought of another,. plus I like it cause now I have him open to at least talking about another one later on. We figured we would wait till Marcy is out of diapers though. May is getting close. She knows when she needs changed and likes to sit on the potty but always tells us ight after she goes in her diaper. But she is only 20 mos and at least she is showing interest. Anyway the baby is fine.. I jsut got worried, I am like that by nature I supose. My dh said not to worry he worries enough for both of us. He gets that from his "the sky is falling" grandmother. Anyway just thought I would pop in and say hi. We did get some cute pics of the baby again. Plus the doc put me on half days so I could get some rest. I work above a gargae and the steps are getting to be too much to handle. Anyway I will let you all go,. Talk to you later.

Hi Emily, Glad to hear everything was ok at your appt. I hope you are able to get some rest and feel well. My boys are off school this week. So I have a full house. At least the weather is nice we can enjoy the outdoors. Have a good day. Hope all are feeling good.

Hi Emily oh my goodness I would be scared as well. That's so strange that since you are eating well you're still loosing weight. I mean if you're confident with the amount of food you're eating then you should be fine. I'm sure the cold you had didn't help things either. It's great that you got another U/S to make sure everything is A-okay :) That's great the your dd is getting potty trained I know it can be hard. Umar was potty trained about about the same time as your daughter...boy was it hard. He now has to conquer over night no pull up's. It's hard for him he doesn't realize when he has to go. So I take him at least 2 in the night and them when Farhan get's home he takes him once and still sometimes we have an accident! Oh man is it hard!. We'll I'm glad you got your half days which is awesome ! It will help you out for sure. Laura hope you're feeling good. Okay talk to you ladies soon!

Shae-lynn - April 12

Hi. If it's not one thing with this pregnancy, it's another, I tell ya! Yesterday after my walk, I noticed a small brown spot on my underwear and a bit more when I wiped. Talk about scary! Went straight up the hospital where they hooked me up to the monitors and checked me out. Cervix was closed but she did say it looked slightly soft (yikes). However, I have a polyp on the outside of my cervix which was causing brown spotting in the first trimester but hasn't in over 2 months now. So why start now? ERRRRRR!!! They also did the fFt test on me - which is a test they do to see if you're at risk for pre-term labor which came back negative. It's sort of guarantee that you won't go into labor for another 2 weeks or so. So I should be feeling better but I'm not. I'm going to be freaking out every time I go to the bathroom even though it's supposedly not bad.

 

Shae-lynn - April 12

And what about the slightly softenend cervix? Should I be freaking out over this too?

 

aurora - April 12

WHOAH SHAE-LYN I AM SO SORRY ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH THAT HAS TO SUCK I HAVE BEEN NERVOUS MYSELF EVER SINCE MY COUSIN HAD A PREMIE BABY NOW I GET NERVOUS HER'S WAS DUE TO PREECLAMPSIA SO I GET SO SCARED SHE TELLS ME HER SYMTOMS AND I FEEL LIKE I'VE HAD THEM A TIME OR TWO BUT IT'S JUST SCARY SO I WISH I HAD AN ANSWER FOR THE SOFT CERVIX BUT WOW YOUR DOCTOR TOLD YOU IT WASN'T ANYTHING TO WORRY ABOUT? HMMM THAT'S ODD I DON'T KNOW BUT IT DOESN'T SOUND TOO GOOD WELL YOU KNOW WHAT YOU SHOULD REALLY TAKE IT EASY SO THAT PRETERM LABOR TEST THAT THEY GAVE YOU IS THAT A POSITIVE ANSWER LIKE WHEN YOUR 5 OR 6 WEEKS AWAY FROM YOUR DUE DATE ?IF SO I WOULD LIKE THAT TEST DONE ON ME THAT'S MY BIGGEST FEAR I READ ALL THESE NEWSLETTERS ABOUT THE BABY'S DEVELOPMENT FROM WEEK TO WEEK AND IT SAYS IF THE BABY WERE TO BE BORN AT 24 WEEKS (THAT'S HOW FAR I AM ) IT WOULD HAVE A CHANCE FOR SURVIVAL OHHHH THAT GETS ME NERVOUS I ALWAYS PARY PLEASE LET HIM GO FULL TERM THAT'S TOO HARD TO LEAVE YOUR BABY IN THE HOSPITAL SO LADIES I TELL YA IF IT ISN'T THING IT SURE IS ANOTHER RIGHT HANG IN THERE BE STRONG FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR LIL ANGEL INSIDE HUGS TO YOU ALL!!!

 

Emily - April 13

oh my, how scary for you. My doc was very rea__suring to me any time I have a question or concern I mentioned that I seem to be very wet at times, almost liek I sprung a leak and hoping I hadn't literally. He said no, that the animotic sac was fine and had lots of water. He siad that is a sign of a healthy baby. He siad it is common for those kinds of things even if it hadn't happened in a previous pregnancy. I haven't had any spotting except the dya my period was due like 25 weeks ago. That was scary enough. I hope everything is okay with you. If the test came back neg and the doc doesn't seem woried, then try not to, but def rest. Call again if it happens agian and maybe call and ask about the softened cervix. I am in my 3rd trimester now and about 10 weeks from delivery date. So exciting. my dh is getting really excited too,.

Mellissa - April 13

hey ladies... emily, i'm glad your doc isn't concerned about your weight loss. i think they see so much with pregnant women, and pretty much know from your history whether or not it should be of concern. so that's really good that they said everything is okay. :) shae-lynn, i hope you start feeling better!!! i'm not too sure about the softened cervix. i know it thins out and opens during labor, maybe it's just getting ready? did your dr seemed concerned at all about it? i would try not to get too freaked out... i'm sure your dr would have said something if it was something to worry about. :) they usually like to cover their b___ts, just in case something goes wrong, you know? i would probably take it easy though if i were you,but i tend to be a bit paranoid and think everything that goes on with me warrants bed rest. lol. aurora, that is so neat the xzavier is responding to his dad already!!! i know by now they say the babies can hear sounds and recognize voices, so that's neat. the only thing Diesel seems to respond to is the remote control on my belly. he FREAKS OUT!! lol. it's so funny. yesterday i went swimming (at an indoor pool) and i was kinda bobbing up and down in the water, and he started moving all over the place... i couldn't tell if he liked it or not... but it sure felt nice to feel weightless for a little while. :) i was so proud of rylee yesterday!! for the first time she remembered the baby's name without me having to remind her!!! i asked her who is in my belly and she said, "my baby brother diesel"!! it was soo cute! and since then she's been referring to him as "baby diesel"...she says, "i want to give baby diesel a kiss" and lifts my shirt up and kisses my belly. it's just adorable!!! well, i have two days left of work, then i get to focus on rylee and this baby. yay!!! oh, i don't remember if i told ya'll or not, but we found out that Chad will most likely be able to get two weeks vacation! yay!! we don't know for sure when it will be, but he will be one of the last to get it, so probably august or september. that works for me though. i am going to ask my midwife if he comes home in july and i'm like 38 or 39 weeks, if maybe they'll consider inducing a little early so he can be here. we'll see what she says!! well, you ladies have a good day! talk to ya'll later!

 

iakram - April 13

Hi Melissa! What great news Chad may be able to come down for the delivery after all!! :))) I'm really very happy for you. Aurora - that's really funny the baby responds to DH voice - Emily/Laura/Shae Lyn/Crisy/Melissa/Aurora hope you girls have a great weekend. Crisy I know we'll have an extra long weekend cause it's Easter....and we get Friday off Yippie. Do you ladies in the States get it off? Anyhow enjoy the weather :)))

 

Emily - April 14

I get to pick a day to take off for Easter since Easter is one of our company's paid holidays. Strange since only the warehouse works on weekends. They son't even get Easter off, they just have to work. they get paid the holiday and time and a half to work it. I get an extra day off. I a taking Monday....now i am wishing I took today. no one is here, well some people are but not many, anyway I have gotton a lot sone so far. I have been on half days for two days and was able to sort out the rest of Mary's clothes. I put the ones I will be reusing in the dresser and put the bigger sizes up in the closets. I threw out some things that my dh grandmother got us a yard sales that we never used. she is a yard sale junkie,. Most of the stuff she gets ends up in her own yard sale. And I threw away some things that were stained, or faded of Mary's. I figure Marcy will get her own stuff. I want to buy some new crib sheets for Marcy. We had some plain unixes ones for Mary and I would like to have some girl ones. I was never a girly girl, but now that I have little girls of my own, I want them to have some of that stuff. I also got my bookslef organized. I have bookslef in my bedroom that has faimly history binders (I like geneology) and some books, and Mary's picute albulm a keepsake albulm for her with ticket stubs form vacations and such and her baby book and a memory box form when I was pregnant with her and all the cards she got when seh was born and for her first birhtday. I have onefor the baby I lost too which sympathy cards, dried flowers, my pregnancy tests. I also started one for Marcy too. I am glad to get a dent in my list of things to do before the baby is born. anyway, Melissa, it is so great that Chad may get to be there. How wonderful. Also have fun focusing on rylee and deisel while you are off. Mary is 20 months old and each time she sees my belly, she says hi baby. sometimes when I am stiing down she will lift up my shirt and kiss my tummy. then she says bye baby when she puts my shirt back down....

Mellissa - April 14

hey ladies... today is my last day of work. yay!!! :) i'm excited!! i was wondering... does it feel like your pregnancy has gone by fast or slow? for me, time has flown by!! i can't believe it's been 6 months since i got pregnant!!! it's making me a little sad thinking i only have 3 months left!!! i guess i am lucky, because i LOVE being pregnant. everyone i know thinks i'm nuts. but i really do love it. my sister is the same way, that's why she has 5 kids and still wants more! lol. i am very excited at the thought of Chad possibly getting to come home for the birth. but i'm not getting my hopes up. the army has a way of making you get all excited about things like that, then letting you down at the last minute. last time chad was in iraq, he was supposed to be home in december... then not even two weeks before they were supposed to get home, the army decided to extend them until the end of february!!! it made me and alot of other wives very upset. but unfortunately there isn't anything we can do about it. :( oh well, at least i have my mom here, and you ladies to talk to. :) emily, you are reminding me of all the things i have to start doing!! lol. i have so much to do in preparation for Diesel. at least i will have the time now. :) i'm glad you get to work half days now!! that should make things a little easier for you!!! aurora, being in the pool felt really good. i've decided that i'm definitely joining the prengancy swim cla__s they offer. well, i hope you all have a great day and an awesome weekend!!! talk to ya'll later!!!

 

Mellissa - April 17

hello hello. just wondering, did everyone have a good easter? rylee loved it! she was so excited when she saw what the "easter bunny" brought her. (i got her a tea set, and she hasn't stopped playing with it since!). she's a little too young to understand that easter is a religious holiday, and i'm not really that religious...so i figured we'd just stick with the egg hunt and easter basket thing, although i did spend the whole day wondering how that got started....maybe i'll look it up online. well, tomorrow is my 3d u/s AGAIN. i'm not saying it out loud, because i think Diesel might rebel and not cooperate again. lol. weird, i know. i hope everyone had a good weekend, and i'll talk to ya'll later!!!

 

Laurabb4 - April 17

Hi Ladies, I hope youu are all feeling well. My family had a good Easter. My boys had so much fun finding their baskets! I have jury duty this week. I was released to be home and just call in for tomorrow. Melissa I hope all went well with your ultrasound and Diesel cooperated! I hope everyone had a good weekend. I am off to find something for dinner.
