    @BabyMC517: DST needs to be banished for good! The vast majority of people don't want it, and petitions have been signed pretty much every year for the last century over this.

    I feel like this chat board already had this conversation... man, we've been pregnant forever.  ;)
    We did? Yeah, I don't remember haha I don't mind the fall back time change (gaining an hour of sleep is always good to me!), but this spring ahead crap can stop! I mean I like it in the summer when it is lighter for longer, but getting up at 6:30 and it is pitch black out is not fun! Not a morning person, can you tell?  :p going to be fun with a baby!

    I'm not a fan of the actual time change part of DST, but I appreciate the extra daylight since I have a toddler that loves to be outside.  

    He actually slept the entire night for the last 2 nights (this is a big deal at our house) making the time change a little less difficult.

  • @starphish18 I agree that it might be a little early to get a convertible if you plan to use a carrier. I always made sure to leave the carrier with the kid and have a base in each car. Our daycare has car seat storage in case I drop off and DH picks up. 

    I would also also recommend the car seat deals group. They will post great deals on seats when you are ready.

  • @clebl24  gallbladder issues suck, I'm so sorry you're having pain. I'd definitely check in with your doctor sooner than later.
    Way before pregnancy I noticed I would get serious pain in the area you are talking about, mostly after eating dairy. I was able to control it by diet for a while but then the attacks (that's how it felt, like something was attacking me from that spot) got so much worse, triggered by stress too. They'd be so bad I wouldn't be able to sleep at night, I'd have to make myself throw up or lay in a hot bath. The pain actually rivaled the severity of labor pains, not fun. Finally after lots of testing I found a doctor who knew what was going on and removed it - my gallbladder was totally flat and sick. As soon as it was gone I felt amazingly better, no attacks since. 

    Get yourself checked, @clebl24 and find some relief! sending good vibes your way
  • @clebl24 I've also had pain in the same area as you described. I had it almost every evening after dinner for about a week straight during 2nd tri and my midwife just said its most likely was growing pain. She suggested a couple of stretching tricks and they helped a bit. Nowaday, I get it occasionally here and there and baby hangs out more on my right side so it may very well just be him stretching and putting pressure under my right ribs. Its definitely not consistent.

    Maybe this will help further answer more questions. Those with gallbladder problems, was the pain consistent or was there a pattern or was it just sporadic?

    @LilMissCrafty Oh man, they should really pay attention. I had to do the 3 hr GTT as well, & its already not fun to sit there for 3 hours and get poked 3 times!

    @kayemjay2 - I say go for it. @LilMissCrafty - Oh no! I'm sorry you have to go back, especially after you already drank that nasty drink. 

    I think I'm in the minority here but I don't mind DST; however I do hate time changes so since DST lasts 8 months of the year already, I vote that they just take the hour away altogether. There is almost no point in going back to regular time for all of 4 months.

  • Random: My pregnancy brain has been out of control the last few days. Saturday night, I was changing our clocks for DST. I set all of the clocks in our house back and hour instead of forward and hour. DH said he didn't have the heart to tell me but we were actually 2 hours earlier than we were supposed to be when we got up Sunday morning. 

    Then today I was trying to write down the Salin bank for my boss and wrote down SALEM bank. I don't know why that work entered my mind but she thought I was funny.

  • @kayemjay2 , I agree with the other posters--you should not feel guilty about applying! Even if, best case scenario, you got a job right away, it's not like your current position is paying you for maternity leave. And, given that your current job is not permanent, they are likely expecting you to start looking soon anyway!

    @clebl24 , likely because of my cholestasis, I've developed gallstones during this pregnancy. They don't hurt (maybe they cause a little tenderness from time to time), but nothing major. I met with a Gastroenterologist and she basically told me that pregnancy can cause increased gallstone production, but they don't generally do anything unless it is severely impacting me. If I were in your situation, I would talk to your doctor and see how they want to manage it. An ultrasound and some blood work would be the likely first step, based on my experience.   They found evidence of the gall stones in my blood work (for cholestasis) and confirmed the gall stones during my liver ultrasound (for cholestasis). If you do have gall stones, they may put you on Actigall, which I am on now (for cholestasis, but it also helps with gall stone reduction and control), which is no big deal--a pill that you take twice daily with no real known side effects. 

    @LilMissCrafty , I would be SO unhappy. That test is unpleasant enough as is without having to drink that drink twice in one week. Sounds to me like there was a miscommunication and they didn't realize you were there for your 3 hour. I've had the 3 hour 3 times 

    @SKZW , your bed rest situation sounds really frustrating. Try not to feel guilty for inconveniencing people, even though it's hard. It's just a few weeks although I know it seems like a lifetime. 

    DST is ridic. And having a child made me hate it on a whole new, unthinkable level.

  • @clebl24 I had the same pain and told my OB. I got a full abdominal ultrasound and bloodwork done, and it came back completely normal. I have reflux on a daily basis, so my gastrointestinal doctor said it was likely a mix of increased heartburn and growing pains. My pain is daily and doesn't get better or worse with different diets of food. The ONLY thing that relieves my pain is laying completely flat. 

  • I'm antsy today. I feel pretty good other than my joints being a bit sore (think I slept funny), but my energy is good for once.

    @nda_roxybabe - Great news! Congrats to your H! 

    I am on antibiotics for a sinus infection and they are making me so sick! I have a tummy ache and feel like puking for hours every time I take them. Just two more days of this...

    So much for my horrible anecdote about gall bladder issues. I've been in the ER since 11ish today and the nurse just mentioned she's under the impression that I. Am getting admitted.

  • Does anyone have a good Birth Plan template/ sheet? I don't have much in the way of a birth plan (going with the flow!), but I have a few things I will want to note.
  • @WombThereItIs Perfect! I love it!

  • @mdlorenz That'd be great. I just need basics really. I'll take what I have into my OB and go over any things I am unsure of with her.

    This is the one I had with my first pregnancy, they gave it to me to fill out and return anytime.

  • So I filled out maternity leave paperwork today and they made me put a start date in instead of working until d-day  :'( So I guess baby better come around then or I'll be quite grumpy!
  • @absbubbs They made me do the same, BUT said it's flexible. They just need a start date of sorts and I can continue to work until baby arrives and they'll adjust.
