Ok ladies, I naively decided to show the pix to d in laws and SIL jumps in again and ruins it for me.
she pointed out an empty circle on the baby's forehead and said its "not normal"

I'm attempting to wash the baby's clothes and get them ready this weak..so I have a couple of questions for u mummies out there,
1. is it Ok to wash them using our washing machine? "One that had regular detergents used in it"
2. is too early to wash them now? (32 weeks)
3. what detergents do u recommend?

been feeling good lately apart from the BH contractions that r officially back since last week. today I had a BM (sorry TMI Alert) and after leaving the toilet had extremely mild cramping and a strong painful sensation across my lower abdomen. it was pure pain that last about a min or less (sure felt like more) I was wondering if this is a real contraction, a strong Braxton Hicks contraction or simply the adhesions from my scarred tissue from my tube removal surgery 2.5 yrs ago? shouldn't it b one sided if it were?

what do y'all think? any1 experienced this b4?
Ur input is highly appreciated..Thanks in advance!

Ps: pain was at the lower end of my bump from right to left following a straight line.

SIL is a OB "don't know if its a positive thing or a negative thing right now".
so today at the weekly family gathering she looked at me and said..
has ur Dr mentioned anything about excess amounts of amniotic fluid? I asked y? she said "the shape and looks of ur bump look suspicious. I think u do have more than u need to..but it doesn't matter usually its nothing."

I don't know what to make up of that. my Dr is on holiday till the 13th of nov and I'm already freaking out. how can a person just drop such a comment on some1 and not b considerate enuf to explain or talk more about it! I didn't ask cuz she didn't seem to want to talk more..dunno what to do now.

any of u know anything about it? I'm quite "petite" thought that justified my big bump but after doing some research on "Polyhydramnios" looks like it only shows on week 30 which is how far I am. My Dr thought everything was fine up until 28 weeks which was when I saw him last. Do u Ladies think i should ring him and ask about it? or am I just too paranoid and shouldn't believe everything any1 says to me?
ur comments r highly appreciated ..thanks!
