Hey everyone, I just read that we are finally moving over to the third tri board and I'm so excited. So here's to the rest of a happy and healthy 9 months!

Haha well I guess that answered the question. I know they changed your date a few times disko so I woulda dragged you over here kicking and screaming if I had to :) I actually got a full night's sleep last night. I took my meds as soon as I woke up because I've been taking them around 5am and I got up at 8 today. It doesn't say to eat with a meal or anything like that but DAMN did it give me some serious heartburn for a little while. It doesn't do it everytime so I think having food in my stomach helps with it. I'm excited in a few hours I get to go get ready for my dr. appointment. My contractions have deffinately gotten better each day so I don't know if it's from the meds, the rest, or if they just wanted to stop on their own. We'll see what she says after my ultrasound and NST. I'm so happy to see my little guy and you know I'll have some pictures up later! I'm hoping today I can get a picture that shows more of the front of his face rather than the view be at an angle.

Good Morning ladies! I was so excited to start this thread on teh third tri board. It's all starting to seem super real now. HAHA Fred was laughing at me last night cause I was saying how real it feels, and he was like um yeah, it's felt real for me for the past 6 months. So King is laying on my right side half under my ribs and half into my back. It is not comfortable whatsoever. I have been trying to move him all morning and he'll move for 2 minutes and then resume right back to his comfy spot. So we went to my MIL's house for dinner last night and had corn beef and cabbage and it was sooo yummy. But today I'm paying for eating all that cabage, I've had bad gas pains since 3 AM. And I splurged this morning and got a half decaf, half regular cappuchino, and it is sooooo good. It' only 9:30 and I'm debating whether or not to eat my lunch now. Kay I'm jealous that you get to see a pic of your little guy today. I won't get another u/s, so I'm gonna have to wait until he is born. I go for my glucose testing on Wednesday, and then I have my 28 week appt. Ok talk to ya ladies later, I gotta get some food.

Hey girls, i went in to the 2nd tri and noticed you moved. Wow Kay glad your doing alright. Well i went in to the hospital friday as well, not sure if you guys remember me asking about baby's movement decreasing. well i told my mom and she suggested i call the doc and so i did and he told me i needed to go to the hospital. They hooked me up to the monitors for the heart rate and contractions, and apparently i was having contractions, which of course i could not feel. and they did that test kay was talking about which thankfully came back negative and no s_x 24 hours before so there was no possibility of the spermys throwing it off. The nurse asked me how the pain was and i looked at her like she was retarded cause i had no pain and she kept asking me if i felt the contraction and everytime i told her no. so im gonna have to listen to my body very carefully cause im suspecting a repeat labor like i had with my daughter. if i can't feel contraction how do i know im going into labor??? well i have an appt. on thursday so my doc should be able to answer a lot of questions for me. He was out on friday so his midwife was the one to give the o.k. for the release and boy was i glad. that was the longest 3.5 hours ever. Gabby, i couldn't open your pic. Disko i will send you some pictures and then you can just reply. our system has like a size limit so anything over it just gets sent back. weird but it does. oh and of course once im hooked up to the monitors, baby starts moving like crazy, making up for all the days she would barely move.

 

ma1008 - March 17

ok. so since you two are really good on the researching and gabby goes to nursing school, i have to ask how the heck would you know you are going into labor or preterm labor if you don't feel contractions?? maybe i should walk around with a contraction monitor hooked up LOL.

 

HeatherIsHopeful - March 17

hey guys... Im at 27 weeks 2 days... super excited to be ending the second tri and enter the home stretch!

 

gabby509 - March 17

Ma, I'm gonna have to ask my teacher about that one. I'm not sure, the only thing I would think of would be the lack of movement like before or back pain. I know my MIL was telling me last night that she went into labor early with my sister in law, and the only sign that she had was bad back pain. They ended up stopping her labor though, adn she went on to deliver at full term. But I will def. ask my teacher tomorrow and let you know. Heather, it's good to hear from you. I hope all is well. Did you move back in with your parents yet? How is DH doing? Well I hope you'll be here more often to chat with us, we've lost so many June mommies in the last few months. I guess everyone is busy getting ready for their little ones.

 

ma1008 - March 17

Thanks Gabby. Hey Heather long time no talk, how are you doing? Is it just me or is it hard to go from a sitting/laying position to standing?

hey everyone! hahaha Kay... I knew you would drag me over here eventually.. and by the way they have been changing my dates around ... dumb. So I may have to have a scheduled c-section due to the cyst on the umbilical cord and i'm kinda freaked out a little by the whole thought of it! I think its because I had my other three babies v____ally with no pain meds... The pain meds things wasn't exactly my choice but it had to be that way because my labors are so intense and fast that I didn't really have a choice!!! So I guess the part that freaks me out is the whole recovery time following... Kay? You have had a c-section before right? How was it?? So I'm sitting here inside planned parenthood with Taylor and we have been waiting here for one hour! ugh! but a mother has got to do what a mother has got to do! Right!?! it is so effin' hot in here too! So, hey heather! How are you? We all have missed you so much! Ok marisol... Whenever I get home I will resend you a few pics ok. ttyl

Hello girls!!! Woo hoo 3rd tri!! Well I had my appt today went good babies heartbeat was fine - she was concerned with mine though she listened to it and looked at me like i suddenly sprouted a 2nd head and she goes 'did you feel that' I was like yeah i been feeling that .. she goes it just stops then starts again hard .. i was like yep i know lol i think I am not so moved by it anymore lol but i couldnt get this lady off my chest she kept on listening then listening with a doppler ...i mean i had finally read somewhere online that it is sometimes normal to have during pregnancy but this woman apparently never heard of it - then she gave me a prescription for another EKG .. she wanted me to do it today but I couldnt I was way to hungry they made me wait a hour and I hadnt eaten breakfast so It was already noon and I couldnt sit there anymore. I lost 3 lbs too haha figures I would be pregnant and loose wieght Anyway I am going to call and schedule the ekg for another day this week and she said my blood work looks good which is great so i can still have sugar haha Heather glad to see your back! I missed you!

ma1008 - March 17

o.k. Disko, i just sent you some pics. Newleywed doesn't want to move over just yet so she is still in the 2nd tri post. Well im going to vent, sorry if i put you guys to sleep, lol. So DH's sister calls him yesterday, (i personally can't stand her) cause she always calls to talk about everyone else which is none of her business let alone ours. and im a__suming she was asking him what we were having and he told her a girl and she is responding with thoughts like its such a bad thing to have girls. and im getting extremely p__sed off cause i honestly can't stand people who think boys are better than girls. and he was just like yeah well its another girl, (we're at target by the way) and i just get my annoyed face on and he hangs up and we walk to the baby section and i say to him, it really p__ses me off when you try to act like its the end of the world because you're having a girl. mind you that lady's son is the same age as Keily, and is nowhere near as independent as our DD, plus he is super rude, hits his mom and curses at her. i would much rather have a little girls than a little boy like hers, sorry but i just cant stand her. anyway and once we get home i still am stuck on p__sed so i tell him i really hope its the last time he says anything trying to make it sound like its a failure to have a girl or to give in to what anybody is telling him trying to make that point. He said he wasn't trying to make it seem like that and he doesn't think its a bad thing or that its the end of the world. Makes me so mad cause he is fine until somebody tries to make a comment making it seem like oh you're not having a boy... what a failure. Nobody in my family has made any comment like that, they are the opposite, always asking what name we picked, telling him to start getting ready for the baby, etc. o.k. im done with my rant, just had to b__w the extra steam. lol.

omg I am still still waiting at planned parenthood. Taylor and I were in the general waiting area for 3 hours and they called Taylor in and now I am still waiting. Let me see... its been just about 4 hours! This is absolutely ridiculous! She wanted me to go in with her and they said 'sorry patient only' which I'm happy about cuz she was big enough to do the dirty dirty then she is big enough to go into the doctors office and get the depo shot!!! I am literally starving though. I only had one piece of toast and some orange juice! Ugh. Hopefully soon food will be a reality rather than a mirage!!!

 

ma1008 - March 17

dang, thats a long wait disko. why do they take so long? i just had lunch and i was starving, i can only imagine how hungry you must be. Hopefully you can get out of there soon and put something in your tummy.

 

disko love - March 17

oh wow ladies.... 4 hours at the planned parenthood clinic!!! 4 hours! that is absurd! i guess they had two doctors call in sick this morning so my 10:15 appt really became a 2:15 appt! but she got the shot and lots of info so i feel lots better right now. now if my sinuses would clear up that would be fabulous but i see no clearing in sight! ugh. my head feels disconnected from my body. weird. but oh wow my pelvic bone is so aching and hurting me today. but only on my left side. is that weird? and it's like the ligament underneath... that hooks my thigh bone to my va-jay-jay... do you know what i mean? ooohh ouchy momma! lol omg my MIL can be such a pain in the b___t. remember how i said that sometimes she loves me and sometimes she talks so much shyt about me and my family. well all she keeps saying to freddie and sometimes to me is how she just wishes my parents would buy me a crib and how she wishes that my parents would offer to buy me a crib... yada yada yada.... mind you, i have never even asked my parents to buy me a crib and that is my personal business, right? it's not the money issue with my parents... they could and would buy me one if i even mentioned it... so today i finally had it with her comments and i called my mom and told her that i was registered at target and i was wondering if she would please buy me the crib that i put on my registry... my mom just laughed (probably knowing the beezy MIL was talking shyt! my mom is so cool like that! lol) and she said 'sure'.... i was like okay thanks mom...... so now i can call my MIL and be like 'well you don't have to buy me a crib cuz my mom and dad are gonna buy it for me'.... face card! i swear my MIL is such a beezy like that... like money means everything to her and she is just so jealous of my mom and dad cuz they are still married and they are retired in maui. but they worked their b___ts off to get there... anyways... sorry for the rant but geez she really bugs me! oh yeah and i finally got to eat! woo hoo! we ran right over to sonic after tay's appt.... yum. okay ttyl

hey girls - I was MIA this weekend. My friend that was 2 weeks overdue had her baby this Saturday. She went in Friday at 2pm to be induced, they broke her water at 6 pm, she was having major contractions from 10-2:30am - they called me to get over there as they thought the baby would be born by 5am - and as soon as I got there they took her off the pitocin because the baby wasn't liking it. Wel, that slowed everything down and they had to restart the Pit. at 6am. At 8:45 she finally got around to pushing but after 2.5 hours they got out the vacuum, did and epesiotomy and get the baby out by 11:20. So...I had only about 3 hours of sleep and was dead tired and then had to go to dinner with some friends - with no nap! What a long day - I'm still recovering. I was the "picture" taker so I had to be there. It was really cool though. I almost started crying when he was born, it was so sweet! I can't wait for our little guy now!!! 11 more weeks!!!!!

Hi Girls...it's been a long time. I've been pretty busy lately and then I went to Florida for a week for our March Break. I just thought I would update you all on my situation. The good news is that I haven't had any more bleeding since Feb 8th. The bad news is that I went to see an obstetrician for a second opinion and she seemed to think that I have a small abruption (placenta detaching from the uterus). The big risk with an abruption is preterm labor, so they gave me two injections of Celestone which is a corticosteroid that helps the baby's lungs develop faster so that if I do deliver early, the baby will have a better chance at surviving. I have been feeling pretty good lately and I have been very careful not to do anything strenuous because I don't want another bleeding episode. Baby is very active which keeps me positive and I will feel better once I make it to 28 weeks because there is a good chance of survival after that. I am 27 weeks tomorrow, so one more week to go! I hope you have all been well and I will check in again soon.
