Weeks/EDD:25/March 16What's new with baby?Not too much, she still has a nice strong heartbeat in the 140's so next week is my last weekly heartbeat check until I'm "out of the woods" so to speak in terms of heart development. Girlfriend has also decided that 2:30-3:30 AM is the best time ever to have a dance party and it's waking me up every night. While I love feeling movement I wish it wouldn't mess with my sleep so much! She also doesn't seem to like when I bend or lean forward (guess I'm putting pressure on her?) and starts moving around a lot whenever I do thatWhat's new with mama?At my dr's apt yesterday he told me he wants me to go see a hematologist. At my GD test (which I passed with a 95-bring on the sweets!) they test iron levels too. I've always had low iron even when not pregnant and since pregnancy makes it worse I started taking an iron supplement right away. My iron level was 9 (don't know what that means except apparently it's pretty low) so he wants me to go see someone to get that level back up because apparently as your pregnancy progresses your iron level decreases even more and he doesn't want me to have to get a blood transfusion after birth. I didn't know but he said that you lose more blood with each successive birth so since this is my third he wants my iron levels back up. He's not sure if I'll be prescribed an oral or an IV but I put in a call first thing this morning to make an appointment.Rants/Raves:DH gave me a full body massage last night and it felt amazing! I wish it hadn't been at 3AM (baby was up partying and he wanted to relax me). He's also started being a little more over-protective. For example I wanted to go out at 11 a few nights ago to order something from the gas station from down the road which has amazing MTO's (If you live in western/central PA you've heard of Sheetz before-it's awesome!) and he said he'd rather we go together but that wasn't possible since both of the kids were already sleeping (obviously). I was going to go and try to be nice to save him a trip but he decided to get dressed and go himself because he didn't want me out driving around and going to a gas station (even though we don't live in a bad area, upper-middle class) so I got to stay at home in the nice warm house and wait for him to come back with my order. Anybody else's SO becoming over-protective?Questions:Anybody have any girl name suggestions? I'm pretty old fashioned when it comes to names and not against nn.GTKY: How are you doing on picking out a name? Share! If you haven't picked one, let us know the contenders.
See above! Haha DH and I are having a difficult time picking out a name for this baby. Our first was pretty simple and with the second I lobbied hard (and got!) the little boy name I always wanted. This one is hard for us to pick out especially one we both agree on. The name I like such as Cora, Ava, and Emma have all been vetoed. The only one we've both agreed on so far has been Abigail nn Abby. We're looking at lists online and just looking around when we're out for inspiration.
Weeks/EDD: 28 weeks DD: 2-23-17 (HELLO 3RD TRIMESTER!)What's new with baby? She's still a ninja that loves fruit and her daddy's voice! She just goes crazy when he talks to her. Melts my heart! What's new with mama? I FINALLY slept last night after weeks of restless sleep. I'm sure that was a one time thing though. I failed my one hour GD test so I have the 3 hour one next weekend. Yippie. -_-Rants/Raves: So a few months back I had bitched about how my DH's cousins didn't respond to any of our pregnancy stuff and they still haven't acknowledged it. So last night facetiming with his mom, she asked us if we have received any registry gifts from any of them (we never told her about the subtle battle going on with them but she obviously knows.) I told her NO we haven't and quite frankly we don't expect anything from them. If they don't want to acknowledge the baby and be in her life, their loss. I'm not going to chase them and make them love her. So that annoyed me. My DH said when we got off the phone, "well it's obvious now."
Guess what? Don't care. If she wants to tell them what I said, be my guest. They already know. Questions: Nothing at the moment GTKY: How are you doing on picking out a name? Share! If you haven't picked one, let us know the contenders.
We have our girls name picked out but no one knows yet. It's a secret til she's born!
