    S/C: indigestion / heartburn / braxton hicks - I can't seem to tell if it's the baby balling up or actually braxton hicks.

    Other: I have my 4D ultrasound scheduled for Friday. I found a good price that includes the teddy bear with the baby's heartbeat recorded. YAY!!!

    wg: 10 lbs

    heartburn all the time, baby's feet are in my ribs, and I'm totally done with being pregnant. I'm tired all the time, my back hurts constantly and I can't even change positions in bed without my pelvis popping, which is a killer in itself.

    oh wow! that sounds horrible!

    I'm sorry to hear that...I wish I was 34 weeks already. When did your heartburn start?

    36w2 d

    w/g 8 lbs

    s/c hmm. issues controlling the gestational diabetes, lovely sciatica, have given up trying to get out of bed without rolling (which my 9 y/o finds HYSTERICAL!) and cant shower without getting dizzy and fearing I will fall. DH and I have been showering together... which he sees as a sign to try to have sex with me. HA! OB has given an eviction notice of 1/5/13 unless I go on my own due to the GD. Strange thing is, without having GD, I had DD at 37w3, DS at 38w2, both uncomplicated natural labors... so I hope to not make it to the 39 week mark lol

    Next appt monday with sonogram to measure growth (last check 3 weeks ago was 5lb 14 oz) and BPP, NST and then to OB for the lovely group B strep test.

    I've had heartburn this whole pregnancy. Tums worked at first, for the most part. Now I'm taking Zantac and Tums, and nothing is helping, but it's much worse if I don't take either.
    BeautifullyBlessed replied to Laur1981's response:
    I think it is great that DH is showering with cute! But men are a could be in the worse situation and they will still try

    You are almost done though! I so wish I was 36 weeks...uuhhh...make that 40 if he's going to take that long, but if he wants to come at 37 weeks, I think that will be safe.
    Laur1981 replied to BeautifullyBlessed's response:
    Doc has moved eviction date to 12/29 due to abnormal lab values and the GD. was diagnosed with BV today so sex off limits which DH made a face at. Lol

    I hope and pray for you and your family that all goes well! Best wishes!
