Thanks girls! I really just didn't know; I mean I know they aren't harmful to adults, I just worried b/c she was getting them ALL THE TIME and I always felt so bad for her LOL
I've tried to not let a lot of little things bother me with this pg. With my first (which was discovered almost year ago), I was soooo paranoid about everything: deli meats, cat litter, coffee; I avoided all of those, went by the guidelines... and still lost the baby. So I've tried to be much more relaxed with this one, and she's doing great! Thanks for the great advice, makes me feel a little better, and it put DH at ease too View Thread
It seems like my poor Baby Girl gets the hiccups A LOT, usually once a day. It feels weird for me, but they are really strong and I feel so bad for her! I keep meaning to ask my OB about it, but always forget when I get into the office. I don't think they are harmful, but I know how much I hate getting the hiccups.
Is it normal for a baby to get the hiccups this often before she is born? Is there anything I can do to prevent it?View Thread
Besides the medical staff, it's just going to be DH and me, as well. We wanted it to be a special moment, for just the two of us. I think MIL is coming up after the baby is born, and I'm not sure when my parents are coming up. If I know my dad, though, he will want to be there the ENTIRE time, even if it is in the waiting room! lolView Thread
Sorry to hear about your previous losses, but Congrats on the new pregnancy! Sounds like you're doing well, and the doctors are keeping a close eye on things. Hopefully some of the anxiety will go away when you reach second tri; I know it did for me! Welcome to the board and KUP! View Thread
BethAnn, Congrats on the good glucose test results! That must be a HUGE relief
Glad you are finally getting to enjoy the second tri, Kirsty... it's the best trimester LOL
Home from work, sick today Appointment today at 3:30, OB still wants me to come in if I'm up to it; will have to see
Charlotte and Baby Girl
w/g: 29 lbs
s/c: Had my first real occurance of BHC this weekend, and it kinda freaked me out. I had about 4 of them, and they all came about 5 minutes apart. I waited to wake DH, just in case it was a false alarm, which it was. whew!!! Other than that, not much new to report, other than this crazy bug I've got (which I'm starting to think is just something I ate). Still have HB and stiff hips in the morning, and I literally waddle everywhere. This little stomach flu deal kinda worries me a little; is it making my Baby Girl sick too? Can it harm her? Lots of questions for the doc, if we make it there today.
other: Was a busy weekend; had two baby showers, and it was almost overwhelming. Amongst everything, we got our Pack 'n Play and crib mattress, which were really the last two essentials we needed. Besides picking out a carseat for DH's car (he has a VW Jetta, and we discovered that there is NO WAY our travel system carseat will fit in his car) and stocking up on diapers, we are pretty well ready to go! I feel so blessed to have such a generous group of family and friends, and don't know how we can thank them enough.
OH and I found out some other great news... after a couple years of trying, one of my BFF's is finally preggo!!! Yay!!!
The girls are right, Nicole; your feelings are completely normal. I will be 37 weeks on Sunday, and I still have moments of panic when I realize I haven't felt her move in the past couple of hours... when in reality, she has moved, I just didn't realize it. The fear sets in so I have to get up and walk, or drink something, or physically push on my belly to see if she moves.
The nurses at our clinic also said that if you are worried or something doesn't feel "right", come in and have them check for you. With your d/a 2 1/2 weeks away, I would give them a call. ((hugs)) Trust your instincts, mama! KUPView Thread
Wow! Sounds like there is a lot to keep you busy LOL Maybe it will make the last few weeks go a little faster And that is just too cute, about Joshua wanting to get a toy for Samuel; what a good big brother!View Thread
