well just thought i would open up a post where we can put down our weekly updates...
i am 20 weeks today my next doctor appointment is 11/19th i also get another ultrasound to finish the anatomy my little princess was not cooperating to show her face to well...
i have been feeling the baby move a lot the past couple of days she kicks down though ? LOL so it feels a little weird...
i have gained about 9 or 10 pounds so far... not sure if thats a lot or not??? i feel like it is a lot!!! :(
thanks, JennieTTC2, great idea :) congrats on half-way!
i will be 24 weeks tomorrow, and have gained a total of about 15 pounds on doctor's scale.. 20 based on my own pre-pregnancy calculations. don't worry too much about the weight thing.. our bodies will do whatever is necessary to support our lil' ones.. granted we take the best care of ourselves we can. i'm feeling great for the most part. baby girl is kicking all over it seems.. the coolest is when i feel her on both sides of my belly at the same time. it gives me a better idea how big she is!
I turned 24 weeks yesterday 11/10. My little princess is moving all over the place thou for 2 days this week i didn't feel her move at all and finally did the flash light trick and it worked she kicked really hard and is know moving normally.I go for my sonogram and doct appt tomorrow 11/12 so we will see what she is up to in there now. I will keep everyone posted. God Bless!!
I am 22 weeks and 4 days today. I had an ultrasound 2 days ago. I still have a low lying placenta and the baby is currecntly in the breach position. That explains why I feel her kicks low in my tummy. She is a constant mover- my Dr calls her the karate kid =) Otherwise baby is doing great inside and I have been feeling great except for some back pain that worsens at night and I seem to be getting a bit tired again. I am scheduled for my glucose screening on 11/22 and go back to the Dr 12/07 for another ultrasound. My fingers are crossed that she changes positions and also that my placenta moves up =)
Hi ladies, turned 20 weeks weeks today, halfway there yay, like rbohl01 I too feel movements in lower abdomen but not sure if it is the feet which i suspect should be giving off the most movement. Last visit my exam showed that the baby was low, I gained 2 pounds. Will be getting ultrasound next Wed 17th so we'll get to see what's going on and maybe the gender, I'm excited now as the movements are now so frequent can't wait til hubby can see and feel movement poor thing is sooo excited, shined flashlight on stomach to get the baby to move lol!! Happy Baby dust to you all!!
Hi all ! im week 23 i sow her last around week 22 she has perfect she still looks like she has my lips so that make me very happy to know we will have something the same ,the week is going good i gain already 10 kg i think is alot but the doc says is all good so i will try not to worry u should do the same like everybody says after birth will lose it all. im experiencing a lot of itching around my nipples and bely and i im again more tired in the noon then before hope u all have a good time with the kick i love it and i even start her on gym " i put on my bely a remote and wach her kick it she love it ".have great week ladies
Hi ladies! I will be 21 weeks on Saturday, and I had my dr appt today... Dr went over my u/s and said my lil boy posed really well for his photos and everything looked great!! I am so thrilled to finally get all good news :-)
I feel Hudson kicking low, as well. At my anatomy u/s he was breach, so I am assuming that's why I am feeling him low down. I can't wait till hubby can feel his kicks, too!! Hope everyone is enjoying their little one's!! :)
well yesterday i had to go to the ER for pressure pains in my abdomen
i thought i was having what seemed to be contractions but all seemed well
baby was doing good and kept kicking the monitors out of place...lol
they said it could just be a bad case of ligament pain...
well it ***** alot i tried tylenol and nothing
it feels a little less today and i am just resting as much as i can and taking it slow...
my next appointment and ultrasound will be on the 19th so we will see
she has been a little stinky about showing her face... lol she keeps hiding it behind her hands or even up against my placenta... lol
we will see what she does next friday :)
hope all the ladies are doing good :)
and yea i am going to TRY to stop worrying about gaining the weight...
its just that before i got preggo actually september of last year i weighed 370pnds and i made it to 190 in less than a year!! it was a lot of excercise and small meals, etc so a pound to me seems like 20!! LOL i wanted to only gain 15 pounds this pregnancy but i have almost done 10 pounds and the real weight gain has not even started yet so they tell me... :(
my doctor says im doing good i dont look fat... yet lol I'm tall though im 5 ' 9 and big boned... so doc says im still ok... i guess as long as the baby is doing good i should be gratefull :)
Well I will be 21 weeks tomorrow and I was feeling great until this past week. It started out with the normal achy pelvic pain and I didn't think anything of it, but then it turned into a pinching feeling whenever I try to walk. I didn't think anything of it, but it got really bad Thursday morning so when I was at the Dr.s office for my weekly shot I asked the nurse about it. She checked my urine to make sure I didn't have any infection or anything that might be causing it and that came back fine. She told me since that was clean to monitor the pain and if it got worse I needed to get back in because with my history of pre-term labor they want to check my cervix to make sure nothing is changing. Well now it has gone from just when I walk to anytime I am standing and even when I am using the restroom. So I am going to get in Monday to make sure everything is okay. I am pretty freaked out about it, but I am hoping it's nothing that will affect my little man staying in there A LOT longer. Luckily, this week the BH contractions haven't been nearly as bad as they have been because if I was having the pain and the contractions I think I would have been to the ER by now. So this weekend I am just praying extra and really hoping that like Jennie it is just some strange ligament pain.
Other than that though my guy is kick like crazy and getting stronger everyday. When I had my scan at 18 weeks he was head down, but he has flipped again because I am getting tons of kicks really low.
I'm so happy that everyone else is doing so well and I love this thread!!
Thats funny because i am 25 weeks also and i feel like i got bigger just over night. Yesterday i could tie my own shoes ok and this morning my fiance had to tie them i couldn't reach them lol. This week is going ok for me i am feeling her getting bigger and she is really moving alot more than she was before. I guess that's good thou. I am starting to feel some pressure but the doct said don't worry about it the further i get the more pressure i will feel. I am just waiting for my stinky butt to turn around and come see mommy and daddy. God Bless and Good Luck to everyone.
lisa0114, must be common at this point in pregnancy! i swear, my belly just popped out even more overnight, like you said happened to you. the shoe thing gets me too.. my husband laughs as i try to get my boots on. i think i am pretty close to asking him for his help when he is around! my baby seems to have started moving more frequently in the last two days as well.. coinciding with the sudden boost in my belly size.. cute :) blessings to you as well <3
So far since my false contractions i have been ok. I am resting as much as possible. I still feel pressure and alot of back pain at night but the doct said that is normal. Just taking it one day at a time and waiting for the day my princess gets here. God Bless everyone and stay positive!!!!!
well all went well on Friday at my appointment My little princess was cooperating very well and gave me beautiful profile pics...
i should have my scanner fixed at home so hopefully i will be able to load pics in by Tommorow :)
baby was measuring right at 22 weeks and weighing just a little over a pound...
i was super excited all of my blood work came back good and she passed her anatomy testing beautifully
i thank God for my healthy little girl!!!
hope all og you ladies are doing good!!!
my next appointment will be on 12/17 but i beleive they will only hear the heartbeat and measure the belly...
i think that is when i will probably have my glucose test done (not looking forward to that!)
well ladies take care and have a happy Gobble Gobble Day!!!! :)
I am a couple days away from 27 weeks now but she is measuring 5 days above my due date. She was breech but i think she has turned now i feel her kicking more at the top of my stomach where as before i felt her kick at the bottom of my stomach. I still feel her move at the bottom but it's more like her moving not kicking. We will find out when we go for our next sonogram next friday 12/10. I am feeling more pressure below also. I still don't sleep well at night my fiance bought me the body pillow and it helps a little bit but it all depends on if the baby sleeps or not if i sleep. Good Luck & God Bless you all!!
I had my 26 week appointment and ultrasound today. Everything went grear. No more placenta previa, no more breech baby, and my glucose screening came back good. I am soooo thrilled to be on the right track now. I am scheduled to go back on January 4th for another ultrasound and appointment just to make sure all is still well. Baby is currently weighing in at 2 pounds 5 ounces. I can't wait to meet her!!!
I had my 24 week appointment today and even with all of the cramping and contractions I've been having my cervix is still holding up nicely. So we continue to monitor everything and take it day by day. I am continuing my two week appointments through the end of this month and then I'll go weekly. So I have an appointment and ultrasound scheduled for the 21st, possibly doing a fetal fibronectin test at that time if the contractions keep it up. Also, I lost a pound since my last appointment two weeks ago (woohoo). All in all a good appointment!
Rbohl01 - So excited that everything has turned for the better!!
I had my 28wk appt yesterday and a check as well as I had a small wreck on Monday. All is great! The baby is growing just fine and is not large (so far) like my other two boys were and no signs of injury/trauma from the wreck. The doc said my lil man is just a bit on the long side and already estimating at around 15 1/2 in long!! and he is roughly 2lbs 10oz so far. We went ahead and scheduled my c-section for February 22nd and that will remain contingent on the size of my lil man and if he waits that long. Doc said we should expect him anywhere from February 11th to the 22nd depending on size and previous pregnancies (my first son decided to come on his own 3wks early..lol). So now I feel panicked trying to get all last minute details done and manage Christmas and set up my youngest son's b-day party in January...lol. Can anyone say..."stressed"!!!
I am 28 weeks today :) I feel alot better than i did last week. I don't have that awful pressure when i walk anymore and the bleeding has stopped (thank god) and my princess is moving like crazy so i know she is ok. We go back to the doct this friday 12/10 for our glucose test and sonogram so we will see whats going on with our angel. When i went to the hospital last thursday 12/2 she was still breech and weighing in at 2 pounds 5 ounces.
Lol..she sounds like my lil man...he is stubvornly staying breech but doc said since it will be another c-section he is not worried.
I hate the glucose test. I am and have been diabetic for nearly 8yrs so I didnt have to do it this time round. I found out hard way that babies do indeed get large with diabetes and carrying them becomes somewhat a small problem. I remember with my second son I could barely move. It felt like he would fall out everytime I moved and I would have to get on hands and knees just to get comfort from pain/pressure when I got to the last stretch.
I hope the bleeding stays stopped and all remains good with your little princess. Monday after the accident that next morning round 3am I had a couple spots of blood but that was all. I felt a little relieved that my little guy was moving all over the place so I knew he was ok and I kept an eye on his heart rate with my doppler just to make sure. Come to find out I am just a little banged up round the kidneys and it made me have a little blood in the urine so that made me feel sooo much better in terms for him but I'm still sore...lol.
Good luck hun and welcome to the third trimester!!
Ok ladies went to the doctors this past friday 12/10 and all good news :) my princess is not breech anymore and weighs a good 3 pounds and 1 ounce :) the pressure i am feeling is her head in place. Let's just hope she stays in place she moves an awful lot. The bleeding i was having was my cervix and they said its normal and happens in some pregnancies thou i have never experienced it. Everything seems to be going good right now so no worries for now.
Lisa - I'm glad everything is going well now and that baby has turned for you. Hopefully, you don't have to deal with the bleeding anymore because I am sure that would be enough to freak any of us out!!
