Very pretty name for a girl :) it sure is exciting having our first child. We just want him to hurry up and be ready to be born. We have waited so long for him.
So far my pregnancy is going well. They are really keeping a close eye on me and baby since I have had problems in the past and I have a heart problem. But all is going well.
I work full time and we have decided finally that maybe I should slow down and go on early leave. So my last day of work will be feb.1st. I will be almost 33 weeks then. I am ready for the break. I am not a young spring chicken anymore! Hhehehehe and I have a highs stress job wi lots of demands on me, so it will be nice not to have all this extra stress and work.
How about you? How is your pregnancy so far? This is your first as well.
Do you know yet if you are having a natural birth or c section? I was leaning towards natural, but I think I have finally decided on having a c section. But still not 100% on it.
Have you started any prenatal classes? I am starting my first class on Tuesday night. My hubby and I are looking forward to it.
I know what you mean, its our first child and it was a big shock when we find out we were expecting, now im just at that point where i want her to come along just to cuddle her and everything. Aw well the best of luck to you. Im sure everything will be going fine though.
I have just stopped working recently, was doing housekeeping as a job but it got stressful aswell so i decided to stop working. I didnt much like the job anyways. I stopped working at 31 weeks . Its nice though just to relax .
My pregnancy is going good, got an appt tomorrow with my midwife. Last check up i was 1cm to small and i havent gotten my glucose results back yet. We are planning on a natural birth, kind of scared though. Well you have plenty of time to decide what kind of birth your having though. Just do whats best for you i guess. No i havent yet, some of the classes i find are starting near my due date. I really want to do them though. Just trying to find one thats all.
I wish you all the best in your pregnancy :)
I can't believe all the changes going on in my body and emotions. And there is so much to learn!
We started to work on the nursery today. It is looking really good. We are going with a jungle theme. My friend is throwing me a baby shower feb.9th. She seems to have everything organize as to who is buying what. I think I will have everything I need. I am so lucky two of my friends had boys last year and they have all given me stuff. So I really don't need much. I have all my big items, just need the little stuff like diapers, lotions, etc....
I also have a good support system. My two friends with one year old boys, my husband, my mom, and lots of friends that are wanting to help with baby. So we are feeling like we might be ready for this.
Do you have a good support system ready?
I know, i found myself crying the other daybecause i baked a cake and it didnt turn oit that great and i bawled my eyes out. Its amazing the little things that you get you worked up though. Aw really? My baby is on the 9th of feb aswell got everything confirmed for that. My mum organized it for me, as we had to book a hall and everything. I think mine is basically clothes, sometimes i cant help but get things i see in store. Thats great you got a good support system, i have my entire family excited about the new arrival plus my partner and his family then theres our friends aswell. I just really can't wait till i get to met my baby girl though. Plus she keeps moving to much it really gets uncomfortable. How do you find yourself being able to deal with the discomfort?
I am taking a lot of warm baths. I find it calms him down and he relaxes or falls asleep.
AlSo I find that he is squirming really bad then if I lay down in bed on my right side and snuggle up to my husbands back he seems to settle. Maybe it is because I am feeling relaxed, I am not sure. But it seems to calm him down.
I just keep on trying different things, till I find something that works.
I agree though, my hardest part right now is getting comfortable. He is still in the breech position and I find it hard to breath sometimes cause he is squishing my diaphragm. We started our labour and delivery classes last night and the teacher gave me some ideas to try and help him move into the correct position. We are going to start to try and do those exercises then maybe I will get more comfort.
I cant stand the heat of hot baths atm, its too hot as it is. I find myself comfy swimming around in the pool. Im 33weeks today and i honestly am never comfy, when i do find the right spot i have to get up and go toilet.
I habe the difficulties breathing when im lying on my back, my stomach tightens up for abit and i feel like im getting cramps and its sore to breathe. Until i lie down on my side or something.
As much as i want too i dont think i have enough time to do those classes at the moment. Im glad that its going great for you though. I bet it helps though:-)
Kris8322: congrats on the baby have you got any names? Wow baby number3? Hows the pregnancy going for you so far?
