  • Ahhh it cut me off! I had a good Whiney vent session going too! Well y'all probably didn't want to read my petty complaints. Let's just say I am stressed right now...first world problems.

  • Going on 34 weeks and starting to feel it. Appt tomorrow but right now no real updates. Had my baby shower on Saturday, so now we really have to work on getting ready.... Eep!

    QOTW: sweets. I do not usually have a sweet tooth, but pregnancy seems to have totally changed that. Case in point, bedtime snack consisted of a handful of chocolate chips.

  • @potatocastillo - I hear ya, I'm not ready either!
    @jeannaqueena - You are totally allowed to vent about first-world problems here.  I'm with you on the aches and pains and no sleep.
    @emcarl24 - How was the baby shower?

    As for me - 35 weeks tomorrow - today is 8 months!  Gulp.  Had a mini-freakout this morning but I'm realizing that I will probably never feel ready.  Next app't is next week, we'll see if my amniotic fluid level has stayed steady or increased (would be great) or decreased (not so great).  I am sore all over, my hips hurt and I keep having pressure (not quite pain) in my pubic area.  None of this feels familiar from the first go-round.  Strange.

    QOTW - I've been having (microwave) s'mores.  I'm currently out of marshmallows so now I'm just dipping my graham crackers in Hershey's chocolate syrup for a sad, pale imitation of the real thing.

  • 35w3d - how many hours not sure but I'm at that point where I'm counting down the moments.

    I ache. I am sleeping only about 4hrs a night but last night I did manage a few more than that but I think the exhaustion just caught up. I'm also a little weepy and feel like I'm living in another persons body and head.

    I am very conscious to enjoy the end in some ways. So every day i just sit a love all the kicks and marvel over the whole thing. But there is a definite shift in how it feels and I'm at the point of feeling my body is just at its capacity especially at night.

    Saw doc yesterday for scan and consultation. Baby is a big guy still he is at the top line of the chart but they are happy as his growth has been consistent and in proportion just a big guy!

    This beating feeling is freaking me out a little. I had a good cry to my mum last night. As a perpetual nomad I have never had that home bod urge. It's so alien to me and I'm also not in my own place and have been moving from place to place! I was so confused by these feelings of getting things ready and needing to wash all the clothes and going over and over if I had everything. My mum was great she was like your not crazy your pregnant and at this point they feel similar. She had me laughing and embracing this new character of mine

    We are going in next week and we are going to try an ECV to flip my little breech baby. I am really scared about having a c section so I'm hoping this works!

    The funniest part of my appointment was the doc from Ghana knew my OB from East Afrca that looked after me when I had the bleeding! What a small freaking world!!!

    Ice cream! I just love the stuff! I've always loved it but this is pretty intense addiction!

  • @marnief The baby shower was great! Chill and comfy with good friends and family. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that your fluid levels look good next week.

    @somewhereinafrica I feel ya on the sleep and the aches. Ooph. I hope your inversion goes well. Flip baby flip!

  • Had my ob appointment and ultrasound today. Things going well. Babies are gaining weight. They doubled since last month. Now they are 3.5 and 3.2 lbs at 29 weeks. No good pictures though because they were facing away from us. Oh, well.

    My odd craving right now is ice water.

  • I'm 32 weeks and had my regular checkup on Wednesday. Everything looks great and I don't have to go back until 36 weeks. I'm pretty tired though, curtailed all my Xmas shopping to online and pretty much declined a lot of parties and activities. I'm still working full time and just don't have the energy to stay out late and be at work by 7 am. I lost a little weight, but the dr. Wasn't concerned. It is getting harder to eat an entire meal. Have to eat every 2 hrs. now.
