Thanks so much. I feel so bad for the doc earlier. I got extremely cranky when he told me they would not do it. I guess I'm just very curious if there is a slight fracture or broken bone since it's still the size of a grape lol but I guess I will never know. I hate being curious lol I know he was looking out for the baby and I should thank him for that but my crankiness got the best of me (and the pain) poor guy...View Thread
When I was pregnant with DD#1 I had a possible broken toe and had an xray in my first trimester, they covered my belly with that protective gear and told me it will be fine.
Last night I was coming downstairs and walked farther to the right than I thought I was and was also walking quickly so I crushed my toes into the couch and one immediately swelled. (same toe I had the xray on last pregnancy) This morning It was still swollen, hurting and very bruised, it hurt to walk on it so I had to call into work and go to urgent care. I let them know I am pregnant and she referred me to a radiologist. When I went to the radiologist I waited about an hour or so before being called back. When I got back they asked if I may be pregnant and I said yes. They asked how far along and I told them I was not sure as my appointment isn't until next monday but I'm certainly in the first trimester. She then walked out and came in with another fellow who told me they will not do an xray on me because I am pregnant and in the first trimester. I don't understand, It's my foot, not my stomach or even chest area. I told him they did before when I was in my first trimester and they covered my belly with that protective stuff. He told me yes they do that but the doctor does not want to be responsible for any damage that may occur to the baby. He also said if it were my leg they'd have no problem but since it's just my toe they will not do it. I realize you can't do much about a broken toe however I would like to know whether or not I should take the next few days off of work. I was a little agitated even though I know the doctor was looking out for the baby to me it just doesn't make sense why it was ok for the same xray on the same toe with my first pregnancy and now it's not? even after being referred by the doctor who knew very well that I am pregnant and in the first trimester. Sorry for the rant, I guess my question is what would you do? assume it's not broken/fractured and just stick it out? or would you contact another radiologist who will administer an xray to determine the diagnosis?View Thread
Early this morning I had a scary dream I just can't shake off. I had a dream that I wandered out of bed to see why my fiancee wasn't in bed yet and if maybe he needed help bringing anything upstairs. When I walked out I saw him rub my sister's belly (he HATES my sister in real life) and he doesn't touch anyone even a pregnant family member. Well I asked about it and he said it was nothing. Then later in the dream he brought it up and told me to ask all I want to know, so I asked him why my sister looked like she's packing on weight and he was rubbing her belly and he told me "she's having our baby" ("ours" as in him and her) I woke up after that, just heated. He was at work when I woke up but I didn't even want to see him when I woke up anyways. It took me over an hour to shake it off and go back to bed. When I went back to bed the dream picked up where it left off!!! (really? that never happens when I want it to) He continued to apologize to me and try had to shave my legs, which was random lol
It felt so real but DF HATES my sister because of how she's treated me in the past and how she treats her kids so there's not really any validity to my dream. I just could not help but wake up and be so angry at him, luckily he was at work during all of this. I still feel weird idk what to say when he gets home. I looked up pregnancy dreams and it's common to have dreams of cheating or being cheated on, they can represent fear of how the child will affect your relationship, or can have something to do with how pregnant women feel about their looks.
Tell me about your pregnancy dreams, and what you think they might mean, or if you have any advice about deciphering dreams please share your thoughts ladies.View Thread
I have a beautiful 7 month old daughter who I love more than anything she is my world and now she is going to have a sibling. IDK how far along I am yet. I had my period last month and tested before that period many times and it was negative so I can't be too far along.
I have been struggling to accept my body after my first pregnancy. I made a new years resolution to lose weight. I hate my thighs rubbing together when I walk. I have a small frame except for my butt and thighs. That's where my weight lingered after pregnancy. I went from 130 pounds and at my last appointment before labor I was 182! now just over 7 months later I'm at 160. Not so much at the stomach, yes a little but mostly at my thighs and butt. It makes me sad to see pics of me before my first pregnancy and can't help but to think "man I looked good... looked, past tense" I promised to get back into shape and hopefully get back my dancer body but I found out Iam pregnant. I couldn't be happier to give my daughter a sibling and have a new bundle of joy. This time I want to avoid gaining 50 pounds.
The only questions I have are: 1. Is it ok for me to lose weight? I realize that sounds ridiculous, I guess I really mean to gain less weight. I'd like to work on my thighs ASAP
2. Can I start working out? normally it's ok for those who already have been doing it routinely to continue but moderate. I hadn't been since before I found out I was pregnant with my first which was well over a year ago. I'd like to start going for walks/power walks in the morning and maybe buying myself one of those yoga dvds for pregnant women and of course cutting back on the fatty foods.
3. What are you ladies doing to control your weight gain? how is it working for you? What does your daily diet consist of?View Thread
