  • Well, we have @halfanewt and @Klyn7 with babies coming soon! @halfanewt Glad you decided to start your ML! I hope things are progressing well with baby and you're able to get everything set up the way you want for your ML. And keeping FX for @wildrainbow that your LO will stay put for a little while longer!

    How far along? EDD?
    31 weeks 2 days. Baby bean's EDD is exactly 2 months from today! Wow!

    How is everyone feeling this week? 
    Eh. For some reason, acid reflux hit me this weekend out of the blue! I haven't had any problems throughout the entire pregnancy, but this weekend was brutal. It didn't seem to matter what I ate or what position I tried to relax in. I hate that burning feeling in my throat. Other than that, things have been pretty calm.

    Any upcoming appointments? 
    Had a regular appt last Thursday and everything looked fine. I got my TDAP shot, too. Next appt is next Thursday. Still need to get my flu shot :neutral:

    GTKY: Any big/exciting October plans?
    We have our 2-session birthing class this month - hooray! I'm mostly excited to finally get a tour of the maternity ward where I'll be delivering. The first class is next Tuesday night - I can't wait! We've also got some other stuff planned, like a trip to Letchworth for the long weekend and our maternity photo shoot. Plus my shower and Halloween of course! It's going to be a busy month!

    Third trimester heart burn was no joke. It did not matter what I ate or didn't eat or if I ate at all....almost constant heartburn and acid reflux. It got almost unbearable if I ate pizza or something spicy. The doctor said I could try to drink some milk to see if that calmed the acid down, but he said not to take anti-acids. I mostly just toughed it out...

  • @halfanewt Congratulations on your baby boy! That's so exciting! I'm glad everything went well and that you and baby Zane are doing good! Enjoy all your new baby snuggles!

    @wildrainbow Glad to hear you're back home and still doing the 2 appts each week. I hope everything looked good when you went to L&D and that baby stays put for just a little while longer! Are still trying to get to the 22nd, or have things been moved up?

    @artemis618 Welcome to the 3rd tri! A Sunday night wedding - interesting! I would be exhausted! 8:30-9 has become my bed time lately! And an avocado sounds so cute for Halloween!

    @prudence9-2 I'd agree that this year is a much better birthday than last year! Glad you're here and that this journey is almost over! And sorry about the back pain. Hopefully it'll go away soon!

  • @mag1cbeli3ver Things have moved up, the latest I go will be the 15th. Since I'm so thinned out, my nurse speculates that I will go into labor before we schedule my RCS. She thinks it will be later this week/weekend. Next appt is Thursday. Should be interesting to see how my cervix looks then. 

    @prudence9-2 Baby was totally fine. He started moving as soon as they put the monitor on. Because he apparently wants the title of problem child. 
    lablover78mag1cbeli3ver
  • @wildrainbow glad you’re back home and doing alright! Hope baby stays put a little while longer! 

    @mag1cbeli3ver milk with ovaltine was my go-to heartburn cure for most of 3rd tri. Milk by itself worked alright, but something in the ovaaltine = magic
    wildrainbowmag1cbeli3verBusinessWife
  • @artemis618 welcome! so nice to see you here! 

    @wildrainbow I'm so glad everything turned out ok. Good luck with everything. Can you remind me again why they are inducing you early? Sorry, I should know this but you know how the pregnancy memory is, I cant remember what I ate yesterday!

    Heartburn hit me very badly last weekend too. I have a magic solution and it really helps. Not sure if any of you tried but try steeping 1-2 teaspoon of fennel seed in freshly boiled 8 ounce of water.  Drink it up and eat the seeds too. 

    • How far along? EDD? 30w
    • How is everyone feeling this week? Overall so much better than before. My hip pain is managable and baby turned head down (I think!) bc I feel kicks around my belly button now and its so much more comfortable. As I mentioned heartburn crippled me for a couple of days but it went away, so yay! Now, I hope my natural treatment of UTI is also working. I will test again next week and see if I still the antibiotics. 
    • Any upcoming appointments? Tomorrow with the high risk doctor. He will do the growth scan and chcek the growth of the fibroid. I'm sure he will be angry with me not taking the antibiotic and will give me a whole speech but we shall see. 
    • GTKY: Any big/exciting October plans? Started to buy more stuff for the baby. I already had one compnay wide baby shower and my team will be throwing another one soon. I also have my own shower the following sunday. So, I'm super excited!

  • ***lurking....Yay @llky thrilled ur doing so well!!! Wonderful finding natural remedies! I was terrified to take anything during my pregnancy not even Tylenol even though they say it is OK! I had shingles end of first trimester and didn’t want to take a thing! Spoke with 3 different dr including high risk and gave in to taking them...thank Gd she is fine after the fact.  I was terrified taking the meds.  I will say my heartburn was unbearable since day one and had to live on tums and take meds for it.  I’m still on the meds after pregnancy as I’m still having the issue hoping it’ll eventually go away as I never had it so bad before. @mbradfo2 can’t believe ur dr said to stay away from the tums! 

    Happy biryhday day to the older mommies!! So happy to see u here! @prudence9-2 @artemis618

    @Joslynj11 happy birthday to ur precious sweets!!! I’m still in aw with ur double blessing thrilled ur doing well  <3 <3

    @wildrainbow best of luck!

    @halfanewt sounds like u had some excitement, glad ur both doing well congrats!!

  • @Ilky I have Cholestatsis of Pregnancy (ICP). Because of this, and my previous pregnancy, my dr isn't letting me go past 36 weeks. My liver enzymes tend to spike suddenly. I will have a RCS, as induction can potentially be dangerous due to the liver issue. This time, my body seems to want to go into labor naturally, so this babe may be born by the weekend or the beginning of next week. 
    BusinessWife
  • @Hopeful_mom so good to hear from you! how are you doing? I remember you were having slight issues with breastfeeding. I hope everything is now much better and you are enjoying your little precious baby :)
