I am about to be 23 weeks. I am going for another ultrasound in about 2 weeks. I am pretty sure I will be okay. My mother says that WIC and doctors never agree anyways. The doctor says that gradual weight gain is okay.View Thread
Alright ladies, I am a bit frustrated at the moment... My OBGYN said that I was only supposed to gain 15lbs during my pregnancy and I have actually lost weight (because I have changed my eating habits to healthier ones and it has only been about 2 lbs.) and my WIC counselor said she was concerned that I was not putting on any weight yet... I am worried and it's driving me crazy... Should I eat more? Less? What should I do??View Thread
Oh my goodness congrats to you too Beautifully!! I plan to use one week of vacation before I take my leave so we will have one check while I am out. Unfortunetly, things will be tight because my husband is a disabled vet and unable to work. BUT, we are supposed to be hearing about it VA disability soon. I am so looking forward to this little girl but not looking forward for time at work. And I like the name Canaan it's interesting!View Thread
Congrats on your pregnancy D! I think hubby and I have a game plan when I am out on maternity leave. I get a bonus in December and three holiday pay checks plus tax season is just around the corner. So I think I was just over thinking it. I do qualify for FMLA and I have already informed my bosses that I have every intention on returning to my position after 6 weeks. I have prayed long and hard for this baby and today we found out that we are going to be welcoming a beautiful little girl! We will name her Caylee!View Thread
Thank you so much. I am getting better about not worrying. We are very very excited about this and now that I have felt the baby move for the first time it seems so silly to stress. We find out on October 23rd what we are having so I am online "window" shopping lol.View Thread
My husband and I had a hard time getting pregnant in the first place. So when we found out on July 20th that we were pregnant, my emotions were overjoyed and scared at the same time. There doesn't seem to be any issues so far but I am still worried. Any advice? View Thread
