The girls on the boards have many tips and things that they believe have helped induce their labors naturally in the past, but what works for one may not work for another so hopefully you find the perfect solution for you! Just don't wear yourself out or get too overheated! I can't wait til this LO is out but i know from experience he will come when he is good and ready! good luck!!!View Thread
Lurking from 3rd tri Don't get your hopes up too high ladies lol... I felt liek this little guy would come early as well but here I am 37 1/2 weeks and the dr is showing very little progress in that direction. My DS1 was exactly a week late so maybe it was just wishful thinking that this little guy would come early, but I feel like if he had his way I would be stuck like this forever!...
Lurking from 3rd tri This isn't much help to you but from my experience DS1 has a heart rate that they said was very high for a boy, staying around 165 the whole pregnancy... with this pregnancy I have been told another boy DS2 - the heart rate has stayed low as in 125-140. My pregnancies have been very different from one another. With the first, I had nausea in the beginning but never actually got sick, with this one I got sick rather often. With the last I had problems passing out because of where the baby was sitting and my blood levels, with this one I had minor dizziness but nothing too bad. Last time I carried very high until delivery and with this LO I dropped around 34 weeks. Also with this one I hve develope some minor acid reflux which I never experienced with the first. They say this one is another boy and I 2 have had my doubts but I should know for sure in about 3 weeks... This probably didnt help you much but I want you to know that things can be very different but the gender outcome may be the same... If you are still doubting the u/s tech findings you could probably request to have another u/s done, however you may have to pay for it out of pocket.. Some other girls on the boards have done that and it doesn't seem too expensive but I guess it depends on where you live and whether you have a reg u/s or a 3/4D u/s done... Well good luck and lmk what you decide or find out! View Thread
Well thats really good news for me because DS loves swimming and it wears him out so after a nice relaxing day in the pool we will both be able to have a great nights sleep as well... Thanks for the tip! H&H 9months!View Thread
Lurking from 3rd tri... Glad everything is going well for you! The doc said swelling in a summer pregnancy is very hard to avoid but sounds like the pool is working for you! Congrats! I havent had any swelling yet, but if the pool keeps it from coming then the pool is where i'll be when I can! lol...View Thread

DS1 barely moved unless he had the hiccups but during that pregnancy I was always on the go and had very little down time at work or at home... with this LO I work a desk job and he moves constantly. I know that your movement supposedly soothes baby to sleep so it could be the opposite for you... as long as he is moving i wouldnt worry too much about it. docs say if you are worried drink a glass or 2 of water and lay on your side, the kick count isnt supposed to start until 28weeks but if baby is usually easily felt, it may work for you, but don't panic either way!
