Re: Tuesday Ticker Change 2.7.17

  • How far along are you? 36 weeks

    How big is baby? Papaya 

    Upcoming appointments this week? Started weekly appointments this week. It went well. Initially I had a scare because my blood pressure read much higher than usual, and they were talking about having to do additional testing with me having to pee in a jug for 24 hrs....but the midwife rechecked by blood pressure and it was perfect. She thinks maybe the first time the nurse used the wrong size cuff. Whew! 

    Any new symptoms or changes? More aches and pains with my back and feet and such. 

    Rants/Raves/Questions? We are also pretty prepared. We did our hospital tour last night, I've chosen the pediatrician, we've got the swing and everything assembled and together...I've got a busy week this week at work, but after that I should be able to relax a little more. I'm excited for my work baby shower on Friday! That should be pretty fun. Only 4 more weeks! 

    GTKY: Are you doing any pre-baby pampering? I found a Groupon for a prenatal massage, so I'm going to do that after work on Saturday! So excited. I'm hoping it will help my poor back.

    How big is baby? A pineapple

    Upcoming appointments this week? On Monday I have an appointment.  Have to do the good ol' strep swipe.  ;)

    Any new symptoms or changes? Nope.

    Rants/Raves/Questions? I NEED to get stuff ready for this baby.  5 more weeks!  I haven't done hardly anything at all!

    GTKY: Are you doing any pre-baby pampering? No, I'm not.  I do need to paint my toenails at least.  Hopefully, I can get it done.

    How big is baby? Romaine Lettuce

    Upcoming appointments this week? Weekly appointment tomorrow

    Any new symptoms or changes? Last night I was up all night with random cramping/pain in my lower back and some contractions.  It got to the point where I was showering to get rid of the discomfort at 3am.

    Rants/Raves/Questions?  What do you girls know about back labor?  Anyone have it before it was truly labor time?

    GTKY: Are you doing any pre-baby pampering? Ideally, I’d like to get a pedicure.  I was at least painting my nails until two weeks ago, but baby is officially way too in the way to reach so I’ve given up.  Thankful for a “winter”ish delivery for this reason if nothing else.

    How far along are you? 33 weeks!

    How big is baby? Celery

    Upcoming appointments this week? Check up appt on Friday

    Any new symptoms or changes? Not really anything new recently

    Rants/Raves/Questions? I'm also feeling mostly prepared, just a little overwhelmed with the amount of baby STUFF we have now taking over our house after my shower Sat & after I bought most of the remaining things on my registry... no idea how we're going to store everything!

    GTKY: Are you doing any pre-baby pampering? Started taking epsom salt baths like once a week (although I felt more achy after my last one than I did before I got in the tub so idk how helpful they really are) & am trying to keep my toes painted as best as I can. We're getting maternity photos done next week so I'd like to get a manicure before that or may just try to do my nails myself, I'll see how I feel then...

  • How far along are you? 34 weeks today! 6 weeks to go!

    How big is baby? A butternut squash 

    Upcoming appointments this week? Tomorrow morning I have an OB appointment and then Thursday I have a follow up Ultrasound to look at her growth. It is so nerve racking!

    Any new symptoms or changes? My heartburn has been outrageous and not in a good way. It is not even lying down anymore, she is pushing my stomach up so much that I literally cannot stomach large meals. 


    Rant: Two weeks ago was one of the emotional week of my life. The current position I am in is in a very specialized niche department. Well, I found out that when I am on Mat leave they are going to phase the entire unit out as it being deemed redundant. I am guaranteed a job, but I am unaware where or what it is going to be in regards to hours and such. The same day I had that meeting with my unit, my doctor mentioned our LO was measuring too small. It was all just too much. It was so close to a breakdown. My husband was great in the sense that he said I have a year off, we will figure it out. It all just too much for one day!

    Rave: I suppose with one door closing another opens. For those who remember, I taught at a private school previous to my current job. Now this is not a guarantee, but I applied for a school board back in Sept, had an interview in Dec and heard yesterday that they have been contacting my references. Fingers crossed that I get accepted and then can go back to teaching once I am done Mat leave. Need all your jingles! (Jingles are good wishes!)

    Questions: How are you helping with your heart burn naturally? I am dying and I don't want to go above my Tums intake. 

    GTKY: Are you doing any pre-baby pampering? 

    I am trying to convince my husband to go to Niagara Falls so we can gamble and go to the spa! Or just me going to the spa while he plays poker haha. I want one last weekend, just  us being us and doing some fun stuff before LO comes. 6 more weeks! ahhh!!!

  • @MsTurney I'm sorry you had so much crazy happening at once, but sending you lots of hugs and hope for your lo and so many positive vibes for your possible new position!!!

  • @MsTurney Hopefully that school board job will come through for you-fingers crossed!  For heartburn, I usually drink some milk before bed and that seems to help. If it gets real bad, I prop myself up on a mountain of pillows to ease heartburn symptoms. Hope that helps!

  • Sorry I have been MIA ladies!  Work is kicking my butt horribly & will continue to do so through next week.

    How far along are you? Week 33

    How big is baby? Celery

    Upcoming appointments this week? I had one today.  

    Any new symptoms or changes?  Status quo.  Reflux, hand swelling, carpal tunnel.

    Rants/Raves/Questions?  Baby is currently breech womp womp.  I know there is still time,  but I suspect she may not cooperate.  She was transverse with her head on the opposite side 2 weeks ago.

    GTKY: Are you doing any pre-baby pampering? I plan on getting a prenatal massage at some point soon. I got my hair,  mani & pedi, and a microdermabrasion facial done this week.  I consider them more like routine maintenance rather than pampering though.
