Just thought I'd share a tip that I learned this time around. After the birth of DD1, I was given the squirt bottle to clean down there every time I went to the bathroom. This time around, the nurse gave me the squirt bottle and a package of baby wipes. The baby wipes really help you to feel fresher down there. The nurse told me to flush the baby wipes at the hospital, but I don't want to clog up my toilet at home, so I'm using the flushable moist wipes. Just thought I'd share in case you want to add it to your list of things to have on hand when you return home from the hospital.View Thread
So on Friday I spent alllll day sorting through baby gifts and baby clothes. Stored away any thing from 6mo + and hung everything up up until 6mo. Started washing the clothes then figured out that I don't have enough closet space (which I figured I wouldn't) and I don't have the dresser yet! So today DH and I went and ordered the dresser and changing table and picke dup a few other little things for organization/storage. Unfortunately he is going to have to tell his mother to STOP buying clothes because I no longer have any place to put them! I've already done one load of laundry and I probably have a good 2-3 more loads left to do once we get the dresser in!View Thread
before i start. i dislike the new boards! so i went to my 32 week appt. & was complaining of some pressure. my doc. did a ffn to see if it will be likely she will come within the next two weeks. & she checked my cervix by ultrasound. my cervix is really short & think & my ffn came back positive. so the next day she admitted me to the hospital to give me some meds & steroids to help baby girls lungs develop for when she comes. the also sent me home with @ home contraction prevention meds.
while i was there i ended up going into preterm labor again with contractions every 7 to 9 mins. they gave me a couple shots to stop the contractions & got sent home. next day i went back to get the second dose of steroids & everything was fine. till the next day at my follow up appt.
the meds they gave me were not working & i was still having contractions as i was in the office for my follow up so doctor gave me another ultrasound of my cervix which thinned out quite a bit more then the last time she checked. i was admitted back into l&d when my contractions were getting worse. they kept giving me shots to stop the contractions which didnt work so they changed the meds & finally got them stopped!
soo i am at home now on bed rest bored out of my mind but feeling better. i am on 32 weeks & need my baby girl to cook some more! hopefully she makes it till at least after the baby shower on march 14!
