LOL Aileen . . . sure you're in no rush to be back on the bottom?!?!
I've had some terrible cramping the last couple of days, praying it's just stretching, but it really is freaking me out.
Here's a poll for everyone - at what point (if any) did you start to relax and actually enjoy your pregnancy? I'd love to get there sooner then later and not let this pass me by.
Bridgette: I'd have to say it really took me until about half way and my 20 week u/s to really feel more at ease. You will get there and all of a sudden the worry will go away... :) Hang in there!
Trying: congrats on the girl! I know we were all set for me to have my tubes tied after this one because it will be our second but now since we will have two boys I am deciding that I don't want to make such a permanent decision right now...two may be enough to handle but I don't want to close the door on the possibility of a third and maybe a girl finally!!!
trying - that is exciting! At least your DH is willing to get the vasectamy, mine refuses! I'm thinking sometime after this one we'll be looking into Essure. I don't want my tubes tied and I refuse to be on BC for the rest of my life. Our little girl will finally complete our family :)
Bridgette - yeah the cramping is pretty common, I had a lot of it with this pregnancy. I think once I had the 20 week ultrasound at 21 weeks I felt much better about everything being ok. I also did feel better when we actually heard the heartbeat, but it didn't make me feel like I could enjoy the pregnancy. Since this is my second pregnancy I think I can honestly say I haven't enjoyed it at all. I enjoyed the second trimester with my first, but this time I seem to have "skipped" it. At 29 weeks I look like I did when I was 40 weeks with my son, I have no clue how I'll make it the next 11 weeks!
Well leaving work a little early for the Glucose Test, I hope to get some sewing done while I wait, time to start drinking LOTS and LOTS of watter so I don't faint when they take the blood I guess, lol.
Hi Ladies! Just wanted to check in. I think I'm 39 weeks either today or tomorrow, so the count down is on now. Nothing new to report. Still getting some mild contractions, but there is no cosistency to them. I'm hoping I'm at least dialating a little bit more.
How is everyone else doing?
Bridgette- I think I was right around 18 weeks when I started to relax. After my gender scan I actually started shopping, although I did buy one little blanket when I found out I was pregnant. But after the gender scan I started shopping like a mad woman ( and still haven't stopped) I hope your starting to enjoy you prengnancy!
cocacolapanda- I hope the glucose test went well (I really hated it, I felt like I had a hangover the rest of the day)
Thanks Steph - I can't wait to hear when you have your little girl. I wish I was 39 weeks instead of 29! haha.
Glucose test went fine, just got the results and everything is normal! YEAH! I've been having a lot of BH contractions lately, today they just started to get more painful too. I don't want to deal with another 11 weeks of this!
Just got HCG levels back, 5 weeks, levels are 4,433. that # i can live with, was really nervous, but all seems to be ok.
