I feel you on the stressing and this will only be #2 for me. Sounds like you have alot on your plate and even more coming up... Hopefully in the past few days you have been able to make arrangements for the kids or get some of the things on your list completed so you can relax a little. I'm not sure of the ages of your children but have the older ones help out with cleaning so you can get your own things done. Depending on the ages they can do anything from cleaning their own rooms to helping cook dinner, do dishes or assist with laundry. And if they start now, they may be willing to help out once this LO arrives. If they can help out with some of the household chores, that will empty up some time for you to pack your bag and find a caregiver for your hospital stay.. and maybe even put your feet up so you can relax some!... Make up the list and divide things between you, hubby, and maybe the kids and hopefully that will have you breathing easier soon!!!
Good luck and hopefully this LO holds off a little while so you can complete everything you need to before hand!!View Thread
I have had the same dizziness with both of my pregnancies and the dr put me on iron supplements because my blood levels were low. They have helped but another things that helps is drinking lots of water. Staying hydrated has relieved much of the dizziness. and small meals often so that her blood sugar doesn't drop!...
Hopefully that helps a little until she can talk to the dr! View Thread
w/g: 17lbs as of last tuesday - hopefully lost some while on vacation with all the walking we did
s/c: While on vacation we did ALOT of walking so although I thought LO was low before, now he is even lower and I feel like he's ready to fall out. Had lower back pain and some hip pain along with mild swelling in my hands and feet (probably sore and swollen from all the walking)
Other: Now that we have returned from vacation its time to get to work. I have to get the baby's room ready asap and then pick up a few minor things before I will be 100% ready for him.
I have felt several things under the skin being my LO's hand and feet and a few time I have felt his little elbows which were rather pointy and uncomfortable so anything is possible. The baby should still be active so don't be surprised if she resituates and the point is gone, but I would say something to the dr if the point is still there by the time of your next appt.View Thread
I have read that when the mucus plug is lost early, it can rebuild itsself as extra protection. I had a dr appt this morning and was told not to worry unless there are contractions. I have also read that there is a difference in the mucus plug and the bloody show but I have no idea on the amt of truth of either of those findings.
Hopefully the blob you saw means that your body is one step closer to natural labor and you wont need the induction meds!... Best of luck to you and your LO to be! View Thread
That is exactly what it is... there are blankets and thing we have found with Mickey Mouse in any NFL team. DS1 loves both Mickey and Football and with me, my mom, & her fiance all being big football fans it works out. My team is the Miami Dolphins, been a fan since marino was there. Mom's team is the Dallas Cowboys & her fiance loves the Tampa Bay Buccaneers... The baby's bed will be dolphins and DS1's bed will be cowboys and then they will have a little Bucs stuff throughout ... & Mickey is easy to find without football so he will be everywhere as well...

Must be... and although its really not much fun for you, its probably best for LO... Leaving town this evening after work so I hope mine is as comfy in there as yours is so he doesn't arrive 10 hours away from home!View Thread
I have a relatively small build, wearing a size 4 or 6 in jeans so any other summer I wear a bikini and this summer is no exception. my stomach is the only thing that has grown so bikinis still fit the other places. We are leaving for the beach tomorrow and I have my 3 favorite bikinis packed. The way I see it, I'd rather see a pregnant girl in a bikini than a big man in a speedo lol.... View Thread
