  • @hopefulmom yes, thanks for noticing.  I have PCOS and insulin resistance.  So as soon as I got pregnant my blood sugar went up a bit from hormones.  They put me on insulin week 5 to nip it in the bud.  I'm on GD diet and was 6 months before getting KO also. So yeah if you had SCH you know how I feel with bleeding.  I think I remember you had that from your posts before.  Glad it has resolved itself!  My sch resolved itself at week 10 and they don't think it's back but I don't think they can see as well from tummy sono....I might just be crazy though- it's a real possibility. 

    Also just wanted to share a big second trimester milestone for me. I went to a meeting and walked for an hour and a half with no cramping or breaks.  I'm exhausted, but I couldn't of done that a month or two ago.  I was so tired and scared of bleeding then.  Also been working the majority of every day and still feel good!  Cheers to the magic of the second trimester!!!

  • @hottietoddy GD that doesn't sound like fun but i guess you're used to it by now.  Congrats on having all this energy just remember to pace yourself!  I previously asked about my SCH to my OB and he was no longer worried once the spotting stopped and also said at this point the baby is bigger and thats what we wanted...so I"m pretty sure you should be in the same boat!!

  • @Hopeful_mom That sounds so scary! I'm sorry you went through that! I'm so glad baby is ok. <3
    @safire3 We definitely got hit with this latest storm...20 inches of snow! Unbelievable. But our power stayed on, so hurrah to that! Hope your placenta previa does indeed resolve itself :)

  • @hopeful_mom what a crazy scare!  Keeping calm is super important.  I can be a bit of an emotional hot head and I have noticed I’ve calmed quite a bit in recent years.  It’s really true what they say about not sweating the small stuff.  Things that used to leave me reeling for days barely are a blip on my radar these days.  Meditation really helped me and honestly I think IF in general helped me to change a lot of my “life perspective.”  For some people its religion, some people benefit from therapy there really isn’t an easy fits all solution.  It’s a struggle but I encourage you to find something that works for you.  I’m so glad you and baby are a-ok J Also on the med-free labor thing…I’m so NOT brave in fact one of the reasons I want to do the natural is because I’m so so so scared of Pitocin and a c-section and my fear of that is greater than my fear of labor pain.  I figure the longer I can make it walking around and getting things moving naturally the less chance I have to have more serious interventions.  Granted I may still end up with those regardless but hey I figure it’s worth a try!

    @hottietoddy yay!!! To the long walk.  The second trimester really does improve things.  Although I’m still calling BS on the magic energy golden trimester thing I guess we can celebrate being sorta kinda almost normal again ;)

    @safire3 great to see you back.  So glad the anatomy scan went well even if your little one was being camera shy.  I hope your placenta Previa resolves itself and your echo goes well. 

    @holls214, @safire3, and @mtpbadger love those cute bumps!

    @safire3 glad your back and all is well!  I cute and lovely does your bump look!  Hoping your appt went well!!

    @2momshoping its very true to not sweat the small stuff and I feel like I've come a long way but its tough.  I promise its major stuff that I get crazy about ;)  I'm terrified of labor pain BUT I have such a sensitive vag that I'm nervous of the destruction that will occur.  We discussed swollen vag and I've been in pain these last few days as my vag is like a balloon  :s

    @mtpbadger glad things went well - great bump!!

    @TravelingCouple holy moses u did get hit hard, glad your power didn't go out!

  • Thank you everyone for your help last week with my work situation. @mtbadger it is so cool that your sister is a probation officer too.  I hope it gets a little easier as I go along and good advice about saying, 'nope just fat.' I love to shut people down

    I had a little scare yesterday. My feet and hand got really swollen.  I'm going to be 19 weeks tomorrow so it's VERY early to be swelling.  The OB took that very seriously because it is the first sign of pregnancy induced hypertension.  Turns out I was dehydrated and I have to drink quart more water per day. I went home and drank water with my feet up and it went away.  I can already feel it coming on again today so I have to get a blood pressure cuff.  Has that happened to anyone else?

    @hopeful_mom It sounds like you went through such a huge fight and then a scare.  What a terrible couple of days for you.  Family life is so complicated. I commend you for stopping when you still had plenty to say and hope you were heard! 

    @mtbadger, @Holls214 and @safire3 Great bump pictures! You guys look great.  @safire3 your dress is so pretty. looks like a fun event.  

    My app is being really weird right now so I'll respond to everyone soon.  I just wanted to give a shout out to the bump pics and see if anyone else has swelling :)
