currently my husband and i have 2 beautiful little girls, and i was hoping for you ladies opinions. We know we want 2 more kids, hoping for at least 1 boy to carry on my husbands last name. Right now our little girls are 3 years and the other is 8 months. Any opinions on what is a good age to try again? i kinda wanna have my youngest started on potty training, but im finding myself eager to have another baby. The only other stipulation for us, is we have to move in December when he Graduates from Trade school & get settled back home. i dont wanna be prego during all that stress. so thoughts on how long to wait before trying again? Good luck to everyone else!View Thread

just over 12 hours from now i will be walking into the hospital getting ready to walk into the OR. Im nervous as heck even though i know what to expect, but my daughter was an emergency C-section after 24 hours of labor. This time i walk in knowing its gunna happen. thank god i get a spinal block & not epidural. The nausea was horrible with the epidural. but im worried, excited, out of my mind lol. i feel bad leaving my daughter with a babysitter for 2 nights. worried as a mom, i can handle a newborn with a 2 year old, and if she wil settle in for being a big sister. anxious to know if my baby is a boy or girl. so much is on my mind O_o /sigh. wish me luck? labor dust to all you waiting! <3View Thread
9 more days til my c-section and im getting nervous, excited and paranoid lol. the first two are normal but the paranoia spurs from the hope that i will make it to the 11th and not go into labor before hand. mainly because thats when my husband has time planned off and if i went before hand i would need to find a babysitter for my daughter while he worked at night and i recovered. otherwise i would be quite happy to have this baby in my arms and know FINALLY know what gender has been kicking me for months on end lol. But i did think i was gunna have to go in to the hospital for labor Halloween night when i walked about a mile with my daughter and hubby. after a sleepless night the contractions died off at 6am, and no change down there when my doc checked. /sigh all pain no gain i guess. on the bright side a friend sprung that shes throwing me a baby shower after baby is born ^_^ great surprise when i didnt think i would get one. hope everyone had a great Halloween! i showed off my big ol' belly with a preggo witch costume View Thread
movement is better today. ive been taking in a bit more sugar and such to make sure ive been feeling movement mostly every hour or so, even if its just rolling over. if they wont listen i will keep things in my own hands and watch my signs. if it happens again and they dont listen i may have to go to get another docs opinion. i like my doctor, and it was her opinion i get monitored. im not happy that the hospital sent me home after 20 mins. i was monitored for 8 damn hours fr the flu for gods sake, bu im contracting at 37 weeks, oh nothing could be wrong there! plus she had me eat dinner right before so anything that was wrong before my blood sugar spiked wouldnt have been seen. i was refused to get an ultrasound, and told not to worry. i come in when somethings wrong or they tell me too and they dont do anything? at this point im listening to my family friend who has 5 kids rather then the pros in some aspects cus she knows and listens. if they hadnt messed up the first time i would probably got home birth this time to save the trouble...View Thread
well after wasting my whole day in the Doctors office to get in to see her, she tells me im 1 cm dilated, baby's head is very low and the heart rate is low and not responding to pokes to my tummy. so she tells me to go eat something and go to the hospital to get monitored. i had also told her that all day baby hadnt been moving much at all, even after OJ and laying down. but somehow at the hospital the heart rate looks "fine", but way to low for my taste. (normally 150-160 and was lucky to hit 130-140 today) the looked at me for 20 dang mins! thats it! i even told the nurse its the same damn mistake that happened last time that made my daughter be an emergency C-section at 4am. no one listened to me til my daughters heart rate was below 90. im not happy. im in massive pain, contracting every 10-15 mins, i havnt slept in 2 going on 3 nights and i feel ignored. AGAIN. its not my Docs fault i know... but come on. is it really so hard to listen to your patient?View Thread
im scheduled for a c-section on Nov. 11, but the the past 2 nights and following days i have been getting more worried/puzzled. this is my second baby but i didnt experience much early labor with the first. ive been having alot of consistent cramping, ranging from 2-10 mins. apart that feel like more then braxton hicks. most take my breath away but they dont last more then a minute most of the time. ive tried a hot rice bag and Tylenol but they dont help at all. Baby has moved way down, and has been for a while and i can still feel movement, but the past few days i have had very sharp pains down by my cervix. im not sure what i should do, i have a Dr. appointment on the first of November and i dont wanna make a fuss over nothing. considering ive already been in the hospital twice already this pregnancy, once for the flu and the other for a UTI. opinions ladies???View Thread
Between lack of sleep, peeing all the time, hips and legs in massive pain from my sciatic nerve, swollen feet, keeping up with my 2 year old and the sudden slap of nesting instinct, i am so ready to have this baby. lol i have a scheduled C-section on 11-11-11 but i dono if i wanna go that much longer. i will say the sudden rush of energy was so nice today, but i took off way more then i could chew. now im left with a heaping pile of clean laundry to fold and put away, a floor that desperately needs to be shampooed, a dishwasher full of dishes to put away and several huge bags to go to the second hand store, but i am spent. still need to put the bassinet together too! /sigh and some how i know as soon as my daughter wakes up its all gunna look like a tornado hit the house all over again. sorry for the vent, but i know im not the only one out thee praying for labor to start lol. my bags are packed and everything, come on lets do more then braxton hicks! heheView Thread
