Re: IFV check-in

  • Hi!!

    How are you doing?  I am doing great. Only one day of m/s in the last week and a half...so nice to be feeling better. Went out to dinner last night, and enjoyed my food. It was yummy!! Still dealing with a little swelling in my feet each night, and I've gone down to wearing just my wedding band, as opposed to band and engagement ring...it was too tight with both!

    How far along are you? 21 w 2 d...seems hard to believe!

    When is your next dr's appt?  I have a growth scan with my MFM on Thursday to check on my marginal cord insertion.

    what strollers are you looking at or have you purchased? So overwhelmed with strollers right now. We just started looking and I'm having a hard time deciding.

     what features are you/did you look for? I want one with 3 wheel sets, rather than the 4. I feel like it's easier to manuever, but I also want the safest infant car set out there. I feel like G.raco has the most 3 wheeled options, but doesn't isn't the highest safety rating....not sure there; having trouble sorting through facts on stats and ads.

  • Q'sOTW: 

    How are you doing? Same old, same old. Still contracting daily and full of anxiety although I think the magnesium is helping a bit (thanks Worms!) Baby girl was up to 14 oz. on Monday and baby boy is 12 oz. Baby boy has some fluid around his kidneys still but they said that's common with little boys and should go away in the next few weeks.

    How far along are you? 21 weeks

    When is your next dr's appt? Next Tuesday with Ob and next Friday with MFM

    What strollers are you looking at or have you purchased? We haven't bought anything yet but I'm looking at the double snap n go to start with. A friend of mine with twins said it was a "must have", especially if I go out with the babies on my own b/c the heavier double strollers are near impossible to get out of the car by yourself.

    What features are you/did you look for? Lightweight and easy to maneuver

  • Hola ladies!

    I am doing alright -- the baby is sitting very low and makes me uncomfortable at times. I am also very achy and my feet are swollen. But overall I am feeling great!

    I am 30 weeks, 4 days!!!!

    I just had one yesterday, everything is well. Iron back under control. I go back in 2 weeks! wow.

    We have a carriage from DD -- a Chi.cco Cortina. I wanted something that was a travel system and I was very happy with it.  My girlfriends gifted us with a double stroller that can convert in 12 different ways -- grow something from Graco. I am pleased with it.

    Q'sOTW:  How are you doing?  How far along are you?  When is your next dr's appt? what strollers are you looking at or have you purchased?  what features are you/did you look for?

    Unfortunately it looks like Baby F will be here far sooner than anticipated. My FFN was positive and the Procardia less effective, so I am contracting more. I am getting the steroid shots because my OB thinks It will happen soon. My next appr is on Friday unless something happens before then. Just shows how an easy, uneventful pg can suddenly change. 

    My MIL bought us a Bugaboo Cameleon. It is a gorgeous stroller, very easy to push bur probably more appropriate for city living. We are also planning to get the Baby Jogger City Mini.

    Yikes, Baby F could be here by next week's checkin.

  • Howdy Ladies!!!

    How are you doing?  Pretty great!  We finally announced to my family over the weekend (only my Mom and bro knew) and it was really special for all of us.  I haven't had another bleeding episode since the one at 14w, and m/s has eased up quite a bit.

    How far along are you? 15w5d

    When is your next dr's appt? July 2, then my a/s is July 9!

    what strollers are you looking at or have you purchased?  what features are you/did you look for? I am completely overwhelmed by them all!  So far I'm thinking a SNG will work best.

  • Q'sOTW:  How are you doing? Great! The heat is not fun, but I am staying indoors mostly. 

    How far along are you? 24 weeks tomorrow!

    When is your next dr's appt? The 29th is a/s attempt #3 and the 2nd is my next regular appointment.

    What strollers are you looking at or have you purchased? We registered for a Graco stroller / car seat combo, but I am thinking about changing it. I keep thinking I am making the wrong choices on our registry.

    what features are you/did you look for? We originally wanted an all in one type deal, but now I am reading that they are super heavy and bulky which may be a problem in my tiny car / house. We are planning on using carriers a lot while we are out and about instead of a stroller so part of me thinks I shouldn't bother with a stroller till after the baby arrives, and just get a car seat.

    any ?'s you want me to ask in coming weeks?

    . I'm feeling good! I have popped finally!  I have my forth anatomy scan tomorrow and a fetal echo on tues. stubborn baby won't move from spine up, so they can only see blood flow on the right side of the heart. Was at the Mfm monday, and all is well. I'm. 23w1d today. 

     

    Hum, I'm really into strollers bc walking is how we get around.  We don't drive much at all. I have a bugaboo chameleon in the limited edition all blk.   But my friends said I need something lighter.  They said its hard to go in taxis with etc.  So I think I might get a city mini gt for that. And use the bug for strolling around the city.

  • Q'sOTW: 

    How are you doing?  I'm alright.  Just tired.  This heat is killing me!

    How far along are you? 19w tomorrow.  I'm starting to feel constant flutters now and distinguished kicks are coming more frequently.  So I'm super excited about that.  

    When is your next dr's appt? a/s Wednesday.  I WILL be finding out the sex.  Little stinker better flash the goods!!!! He or she has been quite shy at my last few u/s!!

    what strollers are you looking at or have you purchased?  what features are you/did you look for?  We registered for the Aprica Moto travel system.  We played with a bunch and we loved the quality of the fabrics and canopies over others.  We went in dead set on Chicco - but the fabric just wouldn't stay were it was supposed to.  We were really impressed with the Aprica.  After researching a bit, a found that the only real negative is that it's hard to find extra bases.  Well I emailed the company and they are available directly from them.  So we're sold.  We loved it.   Now, researching a jogging/all terrain stroller for my mom since she will have the baby when I go back to work.

  • How are you doing? Pretty good today, saw baby A and s/he looked great and had a very strong heart beat which was a huge relief.   SCH was a little larger but I haven't had any bleeding.  Baby B and it's sac is already getting smaller which was heartbreaking to see but good that my body is doing what it needs to do.

    When is your next dr's appt? Ob on Monday and NT scan with MFM next Wed.

    what strollers are you looking at or have you purchased? When it was two babies I was planning on the Baby Jogger Citi Mini (I researched last pregnancy.)  I am not sure now that there is one - maybe the single version or maybe the BOB.  We won't buy anything or register until after 24 weeks.
