just cant wait for the 5th! its the big U/S and although i only pray for a healthy baby, i also hope for a boy. I also have a worry to see if its twins! because im much bigger then i would think i should be, and there is LOTS of movement going on in there! in 20 weeks now, & my daughter wasnt this strong til about 25-30 weeks! but it seems like time is molasses in January, and even more slowly as we get closer! anyone else feeling like time is going so slow?View Thread
welcome aboard and congrats! my names Christine, this is my second child and i'm due 2 days before you ^_^ and i find out the 5th for our baby's sex hehe.
im sorry about your father and what happened back then, but i also wish ya the best of luck this time! I know miscarriage is hard, a copper IUD got me down that road and i was upset for weeks. but on top of everything you said, i could never guess your pain.
anyway, welcome to the gaggle and if ya want a buddy to chat with, im on every day between MSN, Facebook or here so drop a line if ya want hehe. good luck!View Thread
glad im not alone! lol i was starting to wonder if my baby was growing at lightning speed or if i had a twin hiding behind on the first ultrasound. ive been feeling completely different in this pregnancy and it makes me worry. ive gotten much bigger faster. Movement sooner and harder. Lack of most any appetite at all, when the first time around i was munching fruits and veggies all the time! my husband worries im not eating enough and ive been slimming down, but baby belly weights taking its place, so im not loosing weight. i dono what to do, i hate forcing myself to eat every day but its always worth it! Cant wait til the 5th to see how much the baby has grown.View Thread
was curious if i was alone. this is my second pregnancy and already at 19 weeks 3 days i can lay down or lean back and press my tummy lightly and get good thumping kicks or rolls from my little one. i mean that i can have me or someone else feel them already by touching me. it boggles me cus my daughter wasnt this strong til like 25-30 weeks, cus only i felt her til then. im also kinda worried because at term my daughter nearly broke a few of my ribs she was so strong. if this ones already as strong as she was at a much older age i feel like im in a pickle already lol!View Thread
would agree with her. phenylalanine, aspartame, asperphlame (or how ever you spell it) are HORRIBLE for everyone, let alone a pregnant woman. they are all bi products of really nasty chemicals that they cant find anything else to do with. albeit it does help diabetics, but still even then its not good for the body in any other way. aspartame has been linked to so many sicknesses and health issues its not even funny. my grandfather lost nearly all his memory because of all the diet soda he was drinking. once my gran took him off it, not 2 months later he was back to almost normal. every doctor i have ever seen has flat told me, if you are not diabetic, don't use anything like that. and my prenatal Dr.s strongly say not to go for any of it in your diet cus it can do just as many things to your baby, if not more, then you your own body. sorry for the semi rant but that gunk is horrible and i would hate for something bad to happen because of it. i would suggest just water or plain ice tea. sugar in small amounts wont hurt. i myself hate that i had to cut most sodas from my diet but its for the best. there is also some all natural sodas that have lower sugar or natural cane sugars that taste great. they are like carbonated fruit juices. hope it helped.
