Hello ladies! Please reply so we can see how each other is doing!
Melissa & Baby Clark 26w1d
wg - up around 18 pounds and now I have stopped looking lol.
s/c - Crazy heartburn still but also having some upper rib pain and the bottoms of my feet hurt. Some minor swelling both nothing to bad yet. Mostly just starting to feel uncomfortable. Went to the doctor last week and everything is looking good. Only thing is my docotor is pregnant (i did not realize as she was hiding it under scrubs) and is going on maternity leave so she will miss my whole 3rd trimester and possibly my birth if she dosent come back on time or if I deliver early. I am bummed about this. I wish she would have told me in the beginning but not much I can do about it now.
Good Morning ladies!!! First update of September! How is everyone doing? I notices a lot of people are not updating, tell me how you are feeling ladies!!
Melissa & Baby Clark 25w3d
w/g - Up 16 pounds!! Wow!! I am getting chunky!!
s/c - Bad, bad acid reflex,,,, ugghhhh,,,, Kept me up all night had to drink a big glass of milk and take 5 tums before it settled down. Hands & feet are starting to swell now and I am feeling a little uncomfortable but otherwise ok. Lots and lots of baby movement!
Next appointment is tomorrow! Also going to tour the hospital so that should be interesting.
Hello ladies, I know I should be posting a happy Monday update but I am not feeling really happy right now........ I am currently playing hookey from work because the thought of going in today made me want to cry an then vomit in that order...... So here I sit eating pizza and drinking caffeinated soda... 2 things I really shouldn't be ingesting and not feeling much better for staying home only more building anxiety that every passing hour bring me closer to tomorrow when I must return to work. Things at my job were not great before my pregnancy but I make the money. My husband is great and he works but he does not make enough to support us on his own plus I need the insurance for baby Clark's delivery and therefore cannot stop working at any point. I cannot even take a small vacation because I need all my vacation time for my un paid maternity leave. So now, and after maternity leave I must work. I am the definition of burnt out here...... I won't go into the details but my work is very high pressure dealing with a boss who only sees my pregnancy as an obstacle and excuse to not work as hard or as much. I don't want to go back but I have to...... Anyone been in the position before? How do I shake this awful feeling and stress? I know this has to be bad for my pregnancy.... Help?View Thread
s/c - Heartburn, RLP, peeing all the time!!! But otherwise same ole, same ole lol.
other - Not much to report, the rest of August is relativley uneventful. But September I am going to a wedding in Austin & my baby shower is at the end of the month. Also I am going to take a tour of the hospital I will be giving birth in. So hoping the rest of this month will fly by!!
