This forum is extremly quiet, but hopefully it livens up a bit.

I have everything bought for Isabelle's room, but the painting and decorating have been put on hold until I started to feel better. Hopefully this week I can start on it. I love her bedroom set. I got it at Burlington Coat Factory. They have awesome baby deals.

We picked out her name the morning we found out what we were having. In fact we knew what it would be for either sex before we knew for sure. I love feeling her move. It's a special experience between her and I that no one else can truly feel. It's so neat. DH can feel her, but it's neat feeling it come from inside me!

Hey Griggsy I can definite relate to loving to feel him move, I actual get a little worried when he doesn't move!!  How are you feeling about the random late night kicks??
558728 tn?1275446170
I woke up in the middle of the night a few nights ago. I nearly had a heart attack she kicked me so hard. I thought for sure she was going to keep going, but she was asleep before I was able to get my heart back in my chest!

I love feeling her kicks and turns! My favorite thing is this: I'm a major side sleeper, but I like to go from left to right side. She loves to curl into a ball and sleep on the side of my belly that is closest to the mattress. If I roll over to fast it scares her and she starts moving all over the place before she settles on the new lowest side of my belly and goes back to sleep. I LOVE IT! I can't wait to meet her, and cuddle with her!

You can add two more boys to the count! Found out 11/24!

I LOVE feeling my little girl move!  She moves a lot, but I can't always feel it that well.  The placenta is on my stomach so I only feel her move on the sides, up high and down low.  With our oldest daughter she would move everywhere, a lot around my belly button.  We had Natalia's name picked out before we even got pregnant with her, but this time it's been harder, we were going to name her Jordyn Katharine.  We told everyone her name then decided we wanted to change it, it is now Lyla Katharine but we're not really telling our family for sure until she's here.

My MIL has been staying with us for the last month and has been in Natalia's room because she's got a bigger bed and Natalia has been in the baby's room so I don't have anything done in there except the painting.  I also have most everything that we need for her because we kept all of Natalia's stuff.  We just need to buy her a crib and dresser, a new pack n' play and we want to get a new double stroller.  Not to much stuff, just the big stuff I guess :)

How are everyone's appt's and tests going?  I just had my glucose and passed and got my RoGam shot yesturday.  I'll start having a Dr. appt almost every week until I have the baby, and will most likely have her early, but that's ok.  

Hope everyone is doing well, good luck!

I haven't been on here much because every time I checked, there was no real new activity...I've been on the regular pregnancy forum that we all see each other on anyways...

Nursery, not done...Well it was a guest room so we did take all that stuff out, put the crib, rocker recliner, changing table etc. in there so it looks somewhat like a Nursery but not done.  I'm having my shower on Jan. 31 and we'll do more after we have our bedding set so we can really see the colors we want to use.  

Name, chosen!  Tyler for the first name and Martin for the middle name after my father in law who has been ill for the past few years =(  We are hoping the baby helps him hang in there!

I'm going for my glucose test on Monday and my regular 28w appointment on Tuesday.  

And, I have to agree how AWESOME it is to feel the baby move!

Take Care!

So does everybody get to go to their appts. every week or every two weeks now??  My doctor won't see me like that until after 36 weeks I think he said.. Is that normal??  I have no nursery because I don't own my own home and it would be a waste because I would have to move again in July anyways... Oh yeah we've confirmed it's a boy and I can't wait for him to get here..
602509 tn?1227205082
i go to the doctor every week because we have run ito a few complications but hopefully nothing to serious. As far as the room goes we haven't even started matter of fact we haven't bought anything at all yet but my work is about to kill me and i stay so tired all the time. Plus my oldest is in school and he needs help with his school work and my daughter has just learned to get into everything so i have to keep my eyes on her all the time!!! lol!! My poor hubby tries to help but my kids are both momma babies so its hard!!! im hoping that they take me out of work by the second week in feb so i can get things done cause working 12hrs at night and constantly being on my feet isn't helping matters. we have decided on a name Jamison David and they have moved the due date up to April 1st!!!
435139 tn?1255463991
I go for my 28w appointment on the 27th (tuesday) and then I'll find out when my next appointment is...I am HOPING it will be in two weeks and he'll see me every two weeks for awhile and then bump it up to every week as we get closer =)  I'll update when I know...
581359 tn?1454010042
Most of the time you don't have Dr's appts every week or every two weeks until you hit 36 weeks.  The only reason you would have to go so often is because something is wrong or you need more monitoring so don't worry!  I just found out that I'll have to go twice a week for NSTs and get my amnio checked once a week, so I'll be living at the hospital!  It would be nice to not have to go so often like with our oldest, but when it comes down to it, I'll go as often as I need to so she's healthy.

Have fun for those of you that have to get the Glucose still, the drink is pretty nasty, but the test really isn't that bad.  I hope no one else has to do the 3 hour, I got lucky and didn't.  

I'm starting to get things going, I wanted to start washing all of Natalia's old clothes for the baby, but I don't know if they make HE dreft or baby soap... Do any of you know?  I'm going to make a day of baby shopping here in the next two weeks or so, but I think we'll get a baby sitter for it.  Natalia isn't easy when we take her baby shopping, she's good every other time, but she likes all of the stuff to much!  

It's good that everyone is doing well and we're starting to be more active on this forum.

Yeah I believe they make dreft I'm not sure where they sell it at though, all of my baby magazines and books recommend it so I would hope they still sell it...
581359 tn?1454010042
I just looked on the Dreft website, which is what I used for my daughter and they say that you can't use it in a HE washer!  That really s u c k s, so I'll have to find something else.  Thanks though.
581359 tn?1454010042
Well I just had an u/s on Wed and everything checked out great.  I actually don't have to do the weekly NSTs or the amnio checks.  I still have growth scans every 4 weeks so that will let me know that she's still doing good.  It's nice to know that the Drs think she's going to be just fine!  She weighed in at 3lbs 2oz.  I've had u/s early before, but never one at 30weeks or after, the baby looks a lot differant, her checks are filling out.  She looked so cute!  Also, she's still breech, the tech said that it was nothing to worry about until about 34-37 weeks.  It's just funny because she's got her toes and feet resting on her face, it's funny,
