so, I'll wait. What I have will work to start out.
I ended up needing 3 different sizes during the time I was nursing anyway. One for engorgement, one for nursing regularly, and one for when we were working on weaning.

Even at a 34DD I prefer the nursing tanks/sleep bras at home. I just feel exposed going out in public that way!!

AFM: Congestion is getting worse, now I'm coughing. Everything's still coming out clear, but I can feel a sinus headache threatening again!! Ack!!! I had an epic coughing fit during dinner that made me have a little accident Of course, then my 2 year old threw a huge fit because she insisted she needed to be the one to change mommy's diaper. No amount of explaining would convince her I didn't need one.

Hehe, the mommy diaper thing is funny and cute 2yos are a riot.

Mine threw a ridiculous tantrum for absolutely no reason at bedtime. Seriously, we never figured out what happened or what stopped it.

All I've got is 33 weeks and haven't been able to breathe all week.

Apparently that's normal as 33/34 weeks is like the last big amniotic fluid spurt or something. And then it'll get better in a couple weeks when baby drops.

Which is, of course, whatever. Since DD never dropped (assuming she would have after dilation was complete).

Anyways... Baby is moving a ton and was transverse at dinner. I look down at my bump and I'm like 'how is that possible?' cause my bump isn't all wide or anything, but that was definitely a butt or head on the side. Guess baby is still smaller in reality than i tend to imagine. Now baby is vertical, but unless I feel hiccups, no clue which end is which

Can't sleep cause DH went back to work after dinner. Blah blah blah

Re: Chat Thread ~ Feb 17th - 23rd

Were you having contractions, or just lost the plug? If nothing else is really happening, that the plug will re"grow" and you'll get many more weeks baking baby - she may surprise you and give you a good couple months still![/QUOTE]

some contractions... and i lost my plug with the last 2 and it didnt regrow my water broke a week after loosing the plug... my last 2 were both born at 36 weeks im at 33 tomorrow.. (fingers n toes crossed she stays put at least 2 more) doc said my cervix is completly mush? not dialated but babies head is right there like 1 finger in n she can feel it ?

Based on Hiccup's hiccups he's still flipping head-down to breech and back. As long as he settles head-down in the end, I'm okay with that - not stressing right now anyways.

Just googled - 33-34 weeks, baby is about 18" and 5lbs.
Of course that obviously could be a bit more or a bit less, depending on baby's overall growth pattern and size at birth, kwim? But a guesstimate anyways, and not as small as I was thinking!

Sounds like a wonderful idea to me!

AFM: I'm puttering around the house today, but then we're going to town right away when DH gets home from work. His sister flies out tomorrow so tonight's our last night to visit. Hoping to take her to 'tutti fruitti' for fro yo! And we're hoping to get back in tomorrow first thing for breakfast with them, then we'd say goodbye when they (DH's parents and sis) leave for the city/airport, and we'll do our groceries and errands afterwards.

Re: Chat Thread ~ Feb 17th - 23rd

just got back from ob check and dr says if I can get to 34 we should be good with no nicu stay (fingers crossed hes right) we all agreed no cervix check because it can stir things up but her head is right there waiting and I have lots of pressure n pelvic pain because she is pushing down on cervix... so lets hope my water does not break for at least another week or 2

It is, but we're also very used to it. Until DH's parents moved here in Sept, we'd been living here for 8 years with only short visits from family every year or so. So, unfortunately, we're used to goodbyes.
It's really nice not to have to say a "real" goodbye to Grandma and Grandpa now, though!

Have fun at the pool! I bet it'll feel awesome to be in the water - I swam a ton when pregnant with DS1, it was wonderful!
