s/c: So I did end up failing my 3 hour GTT, which I figured just based on my own readings at home. Ticks me off that my MW did not take me seriously and I had to push so hard to even get the 3 hour test. Anywho weight went down a bit due to the GD diet.
Other: I ordered the crib and bassinet this week yayyyy!!!! Finally starting to get things in order!
Next d/a: 8/28, MW
Korin(31), DH(26), DS(3), DD(1), Khloe Madison EDD: 10/18/12
s/c: Exhaustion has really been hitting me, seems like I will have a few good days and then one really bad one where I just want to lay around all day. Other than that things seem pretty normal, and although I'm super tired of being pregnant, I don't feel this close to EDD.
other: Finally got the rooms switched (YAY) Plan to set up DS's bed today and will have the crib up by this weekend! Once those two big things are done, will wash all baby clothes, toys, & blankets... pack bags for the hospital and be ready! Finally feeling a sense of relief!
next appt: tomorrow 8/21/2012 - every week with reg ob
*********** Korin its a good thing that you have been keeping track and taking care of yourself and the baby with your GD, sucks that the MW wasn't willing to take your word sooner!
S/c : still having this same pubic bone and lower back pain .. Sometimes getting up I feel like the bones are separating and it's not until I'm up and about that they pop back and I get som relief ..
Other : had a small shower with just family for my lil guy this past weekend as well as my bday . It was a really awesome time and I'm so thankful for my family getting together to celebrate my lil guy especially my older girls who planned and cleaned and were beyond helpful <3 my girls ...so now it's time to get organized , get the room painted and get everyone settled : )
s/c: Having contractions on and off. Last night they were 10-15 min apart. Extremely exausted and ready for the next 6 weeks to go by faster.
Other: Had an ultrasound today and baby is measuring 4 days ahead. Baby is in the head down position and facing back so couldn't get a profile picture of him today. Start non stress test next Monday and will have them twice a week.
Next d/a: Today for follow up from the Labor scare I had last week. Aug. 29th, ultrasound Sept 17th.
Well thats great that she was good in the beginning, hopefully this is just a small snag & since you were watching it, atleast you know that her delayed response wont hurt the LO... Now that you are in the home stretch hopefully there are no more issues & shes great when EDD finally comes!
s/c My hip and groin pains are getting unbearable, I just want this baby out already. My belly is always hard as a rock anymore and his kicks have slowed down. Thursday I see my doctor and hopefully he will put me out of my misery, lol.
other: All ready for baby, we just need him to come out
next d/a : 8/23
Madeline(32)DH Nathan(31)-DS Paul(5), Angel baby mc @ 6weeks 8/2008, DD Isabella (17 months), New Baby Boy Mathew Charles EDD 8/25/2012
s/c: My desk chair at work HURTS my hips. I can only sit for half an hour and then I have to get up and walk for a few minutes. It's seriously hampering my productivity. Lots of BHC, and they're kind of painful now, where before they just felt tight. Occasional nausea, when I'm not starving. Belly skin hurts above my navel where it's stretching
Other: Got the 3rd bedroom set up as an office finally! And bought a crapton of baby clothes hangers. Am planning to spend an evening unpacking the teeny clothes and hanging them up. I still need some of those canvas box-type things for drawer organization. Will likely hit up IKEA this weekend!
Next d/a: 8/27, routine OB check
Julie (28), DH (35) DS Kawika 4/25/11 Due 10/7/12 - blue team!
s/c: Horrible hip pain, tailbone feels like someone hit it with a hammer, stronger braxton hicks.
Other: Had a pre-op appt today for my c-section booked for Aug 29th. (Provided I haven't VBAC'd by that time) Have to go to a different town/hospital if I do go into labour, because my small town has closed the OR for a week so staff can go on holidays. We have to have OR back up for the VBAC. It's always something......
Mon 27th: regular OB appt, crossmatch bloodwork, test poke of morphine to test for allergy. Wed 29th: 6am c-section
Hopefully you go into Labor on your own but either way, Best of Luck with the labor and delivery whether it be VBAC or another C-section! Sounds like with your hip and back pains you are ready to go either way!!!
I will keep my fingers crossed that this is your last update and that the next time we hear from you, you will be telling us your birth story. I remember just feeling so miserable those last 2 weeks before my little one came
