s/c: Started having BH and some cramping the past few days. My hips hurt, and I've had swelling in my hands, feet and ankles for about a month. Still sleeping ok, but having back pain when I wake up most mornings. I think it is just going to get worse from here, but so far it hasn't been too terribly bad. I think Hannah has found my sciatic nerve again, as it hurts occasionally.
other: We installed the car seat Sat. night, and started packing our bags. I got Hannah's bag packed (I just packed the diaper bag), and still need to pack a bag for myself. Only a month until the DD, it is getting so close now!
Next d/a: Weds 6/27, and down to weekly appts. Next and last u/s is 7/2!!
Sorry I have not been posting here lately. Life/work has been so busy, and some weeks I barely have time to read and check up on all of you. I promise I will do better since I only have about a month left. I hope everyone and their babes are doing great!!View Thread
Good to hear from you! Sorry about the GD. Only a few more weeks to go until they induce. I hope you can get the surgery done quickly and can start the healing process. I'm sure you are looking forward to not being in pain.View Thread
Hi ladies! Sorry I have been a bit MIA...life has been crazy busy with work and getting ready for this baby.
Cody and Hannah
w/g about 30lbs...yikes!
s/c: I had some severe sciatic nerve pain for about a week, which was unbearable. I went to acupuncture hoping it would help, but little miss would not budge. I also tried some exercises that are supposed to help with the pain. A few days after the acupuncture, she moved and I haven't had any pain in almost a week, which I am so thankful for. Otherwise, my feet and ankles started to swell up about 2 weeks ago, so trying to keep them elevated at work.
other: I had our coed baby shower on Saturday, and it was so much fun! I feel truly blessed to have such a wonderful group of family and friends to share this experience with. We got a lot of stuff we needed, and now I am ready to finish up and get the rest of the things we need that we don't have yet. Thurs. we are leaving for our road trip to Dallas, which will be a 14 hour drive with an overnight stop at my Dad's about half way. Work is crazy busy and I think I will be busy for the next 2 months.
It is so great to hear from you ladies! I miss seeing you on these boards, but am so glad to hear that all is going well with your sweet boys. Wow...2 months old already?? That is crazy how time has flown by! Our little girl will make her appearance in the next 2 months...there are less than 10 weeks until her due date. Can't wait to join you ladies on the PAL Grad board!View Thread
Aw he is so cute! That is too funny! My stepmom kept telling my dad names she thought would be cute for the baby, and he would respond with "I like fortune cookie" or "how about Wonton?" I think Wonton stuck, so that is what they have nicknamed her. She will officially be called Hannah though. LOLView Thread
