sheacox:  Yay for no herpes! haha.  When is your next appt?  I want to say it's early next week? 

sctiger:  Wahoo for baby girl being head down!  Did you make some good progress on the nursery over the weekend?  I'm impressed that you're already washing clothes!

RedCherry:  Seriously how did you get your sn changed?!  I am impressed, I thought that wasn't done anymore!  Congrats on passing the 3hr!!! 

ShannonR7:  I don't think that's bad!  Pregnancy isn't exactly glamorous so I get being over it and just being ready to meet your LO.  When is your next growth u/s?

andreamarie:  How is the insurance battle going?  That just seems so ridiculous that you have to jump through so many hoops to get it all sorted out! 

WhitWed:  Ok I just googled polyhydramnios.  Are they doing extra monitoring because of it?

lioness13:  Can't wait to see pics of your finished nursery!  Ooh, so are you hiring a doula/lactation consultant?  I am nervous as well, toddlers I can handle.  Babies are a totally different story...  I just haven't been around them very much.  I'm sure we will both get the hang of it quickly though.  That infamous mother's intuition has to kick in, right?!

SunshinyLees:  How was your shower?!  Did you find a new outfit for it?

minicheezburg:  So did they determine which was baby D is turned right now?  How did your regular appt go on Friday?

LeggyNic:  Ok I have such a bizarre picture in my head after the description of the nurse you saw last week!  Almost a Jessie Spano type in my mind, haha.  I hope you had a great time in Maui!  And I'm sure you will get all the baby prep done in time.  The good thing is, I bet you already have almost everything you need?  So it's just a matter of organizing it all so it's easy to get to/etc?

ConnieRob:  I'm sorry you had a scare last week!  Sounds like Will was having a lazy morning!  Have you been feeling better or have you had more dizzy spells?

HisPromiseIsTrue:  How did your appt on Monday go?  Did your dr put you on insulin?

AZAmy77:  Ugh, I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well.  How was your shower over the weekend??

atangiblewish:  I love how drs just keep telling us to drink more water. Like you said, because we aren't peeing enough already?!

pinktrojanbride:  So glad your baby boy has been so active lately!  Mine is the same way though - there are definitely some quieter days where I start to worry.  Then my LO seems to make up for it in spades the next three days!

     Haha.  I guess she would be like a 60yo Jessie Spano! I do have most things I need.  Just need to wash covers to all the gear (carseat, bouncy seat, etc) and get them out of the basement.  We're actually home this weekend so it's all on my list. 

    Any updates, appointments, concerns or random pregnancy thoughts this week?

    I don't go back till Weds, 5/8 for my 36wk appt.  Hoping DD is head down but have been asking around about chiropractors who do the Webster technique just in case. 

    QOTW: If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be and who would it be with?

    DH and I are hoping to go to Austrailia and New Zealand for our 10yr anniversary.  We have about 3 more years to plan that one.  Thailand would be another fantasy vacation.

  • andreamarie:  How is the insurance battle going?  That just seems so ridiculous that you have to jump through so many hoops to get it all sorted out! 

    Oh my goodness, what a nightmare. I did talk to my OB at my appt on Tuesday, and she said to take all of our bills, benefit statements, etc. and make an appointment with their business manager. Supposedly they will write a letter to my insurance stating that everything they've done is medically necessary and so it should all be covered. She said it may take a while to get it done - so in other words, don't pay anything yet!

    This was after I nearly fainted when they told me they wanted me to start coming in 2x a week for NSTs. I can only imagine what my insurance bill would be then! But they said nevermind on those, I don't have to do them based on my history. AND, no more PR intervals every other week - just standard OB visits and growth scans from here on out. So hopefully no more crazy insurance bills! 

    Any updates, appointments, concerns or random pregnancy thoughts this week?

    Had a growth scan this Tuesday and Maddie is up to roughly 4 pounds! Everything still looks good and no heart problems at all. Weight off my shoulders. 

    I pulled a muscle or something in my back and holy crud does it hurt. I spent all day yesterday lying in bed on a heating pad. I can move today, but not well. Ugh - I can't wait for June so my body will start going back to normal! 

    QOTW:  If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be and who would it be with?

    I've already been to Ireland, Italy and Greece - but all with friends/family. I'd like to take DH to all of them - he would love them. And I wouldn't have the slightest problem going back!

  • I got a new OB. My old one that I had for 2 appointments gave me weird vibes. I had to change from one I loved when we moved. I love my new one! Everything is measuring great.
    If I could go anywhere on vacation I would go to Disney world with my husband. I would bring my son too but prefer to have someone to watch him when he goes to bed so we can go back! I've always wanted to go to disney world.

    I had my ob appt today. Everything looks good. BP, no protein in urine, she said HB was a little fast for baby but then said it was in the 160's. I said that was normal for her. Oy, for a split second I had PGAL brain. and I'll admit it still makes me wonder..but then I have to remind myself that she's ranged 150's-170's. I asked the MW when that office induces, and she said 41 weeks. That bugged me because I don't want Pitocin or any other interventions if at all possible. So i'm praying Victoria comes when she's due. Oh she also said to look up GD eating habits since my 1 hour was 130 and they count failing at 135. However, there was nothing in my urine this AM when they tested it, so I'm not worried... 

    QOTW: If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be and who would it be with?

    I would go to England - where my Grandma is from. I love history as well, so it's perfect. Of course I'd want my FI and Victoria with me :)

  • I had an appointment this morning. I have a heart murmur so my OB said I will have to go see a specialist. My appointment is in 2 weeks. I am hoping this won't interfere with my goal for a natural/non-medicated labor and birth. Also, I think I have had a few BH. I thought they were just gas but my doc said they sound like BH.

    My DH and Dad did a nice job with the nursery. Its not done yet but here are a few sneak peek shots:

  • ShannonR7: I don't think that's bad! Pregnancy isn't exactly glamorous so I get being over it and just being ready to meet your LO. When is your next growth u/s?

    I have a dr apt with a growth ultrasound on tuesday. I'm really looking forward to seeing my little girl again. I'm also hoping to get a rough idea of how big she may be at birth.

    Any updates, appointments, concerns or random pregnancy thoughts this week?

    Nope not really. Just fluctuating between wanting to have her here and not be pregnant anymore, and thinking holy crap soon I'm going to have a newborn here to care for.

    QOTW: If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be and who would it be with?

    I would go to europe with my hubby I think just to 2 of us. I've been to England twice and denmark once but I'd really like to see more countries over there and my DH has never been outside north america. I'd want to maybe get a Eurorail pass and just visit a lot of countries like France, italy, greece.

  • No updates this week. Appointment with midwives next week, then going from every two weeks to every week for visits. Baby is doing very well. Hiccuping up a storm, wiggly, but still very much head down (and fingers crossed she stays that way). I am still fatigued. 

    QOTW: I think I'd love to go back to Paris. I'd go with DH. I'd take the kids along too, and bring my parents so they could stay with the kids while DH and I enjoyed ourselves. Ha. That's what grandparents are for, right? But actually, my fatigued brain says: Go back to Maui instead! Sleep on the beach for a few hours might do me good.

    I have an apt on Tue. And if baby hasn't moved they will make an apt for the next week to try and flip her (doesn't sound fun at all!)... STARTING next week i am at the every week apt time frame... i'm almost there!! so close and yet so far!

    on a side note... i kinda wish hubby and i had been able to get some maternity pics because i love all the ones i am seeing... but oh well... AND i'm kinda actually excited we never saw a profile shot, or did a 3d u/s with baby because i completely have NO CLUE what she looks like at all. (i know they look different when they come out) but i am completely clueless and think that will be a nice surprise and excited to see...

    IF i could go anywhere... i wish i could have gone to figi and stayed in one of those huts over the water... that would be my idea of paradise... pre baby body hah... oh well... i'm sure i'll make it back to a beach at some point :)

  • minicheezburg:  So did they determine which was baby D is turned right now?  How did your regular appt go on Friday?

    Dalaney is head down and about as low as she can get. We did figure out my pain is due to Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction. My OB told me she does not think I should be concern but, I am starting to feel brushed off. A friend of mine went through it and was in just as much pain as I am and it turned out she needed a section because her pubic bone was too small. Still maintaining a great BP and no protein in the urine, D's HB is always around 140/150 and my feet have been staying swollen but, my OB is not concerned.

    Any updates, appointments, concerns or random pregnancy thoughts this week?

    I was sitting on the couch last night and my boob just started leaking all over the place. Not a couple of drips like usual but, full on leakage. I was a bit caught off guard. 

    QOTW:  If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be and who would it be with?

    Germany! I want to do castle tours and horse back ride in the black forest, I of course would take DH.

  • RedCherry:  Seriously how did you get your sn changed?!  I am impressed, I thought that wasn't done anymore!  Congrats on passing the 3hr!!! 

    Because it was my son's name and birthday, they were able to change it for me. I don't think they will just it just because you want it. Thank you, very glad that I did pass yet.  

    Any updates, appointments, concerns or random pregnancy thoughts this week?

    Had my appointment today and only gained one pound...very happy! Everything was good, had her check me and I'm still closed and not leaking( I thought I might have been). I should get my last ultra sound next week to make sure Briar is still head down and growing like he should.  

    QOTW:  If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be and who would it be with? I would to Galveston, it was the first place the DH and I went to when we were first together. We haven't been in a few years because the last Hurricane that hit it destroyed it pretty bad and had taken years to get back to where it was. Although it will never been like when we were kids.

    My shower was great!  Friends were super generous, and we got so much for baby.  Actually a little worried we got too much of the activity stuff - pack n play, rock n play, bouncer, and swing!  I went out afterwards and got carseat, stroller, and monitor so I really feel like we are at least ready with gear for baby to arrive.  Now I just have to find room for everything!

    Any updates, appointments, concerns or random pregnancy thoughts this week?

    Feeling somewhat better, but still battling some heartburn.  Just mostly coming to terms with taking zantac with some milk every evening and then I seem to be feeling better for the rest of the night.  We are having a bunch of friends over for a pool party on Saturday so looking forward to probably last pool party at our place before we are a baby household!  Also recliner is coming in tomorrow, so feel like I am actually getting the nursery together (if only I could say the same for the rest of the house)

    QOTW:  If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be and who would it be with?

    Tahiti!  I really wanted to go a year ago when we went to Maui (yes, Maui was incredible too).  Tahiti was just such a long trip and so expensive.  So definitely my dream vacation.  Guess I better say I would go with DH :).  Not sure Tahiti is the best place for a baby, so maybe if we win the lottery and in laws can watch baby for a vacation :).  We've really done quite a bit of traveling before baby, hope we continue to do some afterwards too!

    Any updates, appointments, concerns or random pregnancy thoughts this week? We've gotten a ton of progress on the nursery.  All the clothes are washed and hung up, and we're going to hang stuff on the walls this weekend and order the rest of the baby gear.  I had an appointment on Tuesday and all was well.  I have another appointment on May 14 and then it's every week until she gets here!  We're trying to get everything done in the next week or so just so we have everything ready.  I'm planning on working more on her quilt this weekend.

    QOTW:  If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be and who would it be with? I would love to go on a trip to the British Isles with H...someday!

  • I can't. Believe we are in the home stretch! It seems so surreal!!! Thank you Jesus for all of these healthy babies you are growing, and I ask for a spirit of peace and confidence on the mommas and papas :).

     Any updates, appointments, concerns or random pregnancy thoughts this week?

    i started insulin yesterday. It was easier than I expected! I only have to do it for 4 more weeks because the MD said they will induce week 39 .... So I will have a May Baby!!!!! Sometimes I am shocked I am having a baby THIS MONTH!!!!!!! I am so thankful the nursery is done :)

    The down side of the insulin is I have to go 2x a week for monitoring, plus my weekly OB checks ... And the GD specialist only has hours in Philly ....so it's. 30 min drive from my job off peak, but 2 hours from home during rush our ..,ugh ... We will make due ... Just 4 weeks :).

    QOTW:  If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be and who would it be with?

    israel and Greece with my husband, and a very cooperative baby :)

  • No big updates here -- had a check-up Thursday and everything is still looking good - baby's been in head-down position since my appointment last month, so I hope that's a good sign! :)  I've been feeling good this entire pregnancy, until this week -- belly is getting heavy and I'm starting to feel the pressure of everything all over...I even started the pregnancy waddle! :) Can't believe we've only got a month left!

     QOTW: Any fun, beautiful place - like Hawaii - with my hubby and my rainbow baby in my arms! :)
