    Julie & Little Dude


    w/g: 16 lbs

    s/c: Hip and lower back soreness, lots of BHC but some occasional "real" contractions too! Sharp bladder pains when dude moves around and I feel like I have to pee every time I stand up.

    Other: DS1 is STILL teething. He's cut 5 new teeth in the last couple of weeks and more are coming in. Poor little guy is MISERABLE and nobody in our house is getting any sleep when his baby Advil wears off. Still need to get the PnP back from my mom's, move a dresser, and pack the hospital bag... GBS test came back negative though!

    Next d/a: This Thursday (they're weekly now!)

    Beckie and Blue team

    35 weeks

    w/g 9 lbs. I've gained 7-8 lbs just this week. Doctor thinks that most of it is water weight because of all the swelling.

    s/c: Bad hip pain and acid reflux. Can't get comfortable at night because my hips hurt too much. My feet and legs are now 3 times larger than they should be. I can't wear shoes and even my crocs are tight. I've tried several different things to help with the swelling and nothing seems to work.

    Other: Had an ultrasound today and baby looks great. Heart beat is strong and he's still moving all the time. The aprox. weight is 6lbs 3 oz so he's a big baby due to the GD. I'm dialated to a 2 with 50% effacement so the contractions i've been having are doing their job.

    Next d/a:
    9/20--Non-stress test

    Next d/a: 9/25 OB

    MENDEZWARD replied to ChristinaTT's response:
    33 WKS as of today. Moving slower as everyone is telling me. I don't care, i am not in anyone's hurry. Getting comfortable is getting harder everyday, even sleeping on my left side is hard sometimes, just because i am used to sleeping on the right. My next apt. is 9-25-12, and i'm supposed to have another ultrasound. My nurse said much about gtt, hope i don't have to have it. I will keep my fingers crossed. Until next time folks.

    w/g : 10 lbs

    s/c Having contractions some "real" and some are BHC. Doctor has me on bed rest for few days and they seems to be slowly going away. Not dilated but he said I am "very soft and thinned out". Hoping everything stays ok and can go back to work on Fri.

    Other: Got FMLA papers from work and to the doctor to fill out. My sister is coming up to help me finish getting stuff together and helping me clean since I have to take it more easy according to my doctor.

    Next d/a: Oct 5th unless contractions come back strong
