Re: Daily Chat 4/2-4/8

I was sick last week with a sore throat and ear ache but I am feeling better now and no one else appears to have come down with it.
I am no longer planning a homebirth. I was not happy with the prenatal care my midwife was giving me. She is a very hands off midwife and refused to do any tests (I am Rh- and wanted to test for sensitization at least). So I have transfered my prenatal care to a local OB office because it is too late to get in with another midwife I will be able to give birth at a Natural Birthing center that has nice big water birthing tubs so that is a big plus. I am also happy about getting reassurance that the baby is okay by getting some prenatal testing and an ultrasound done. I go to my first ob appointment this Friday.
I still have not gained any weight with this pregnancy! I will be 18 weeks this Thursday and that seems really weird to me to not gain anything. It makes me nervous! I am actually down 7 lbs from start of pregnancy. I am starting this pregnancy quite a bit heavier than my first two so I probably shouldnt be too worried but it is so different for me to not gain! I am not craving sweets this time around and I think that is why. Anyone else not craving sweets?

I am definitely not craving sweets, they often sound gross. Well, ice cream can't ever be gross, but candy, donuts? Even soda, yuck!

Glad to hear you ladies are feeling better!

I do have to point out that it's May now, nor April though.

Re: Daily Chat 4/2-4/8

Ambersrose...so glad you're feeling better! that sucks about your midwife though, I hope you find a good ob that will be more hands on. It is not fun to have a caregiver that you aren't happy with...I've been there!
As for sweets...YUK! totally not feeling sweets.

Brandilyn....yay for no gagging!!!

AFM...16 weeks! yipee!! 2 more weeks for the big scan, can't wait! I'm getting big already too and starting to feel some movements and braxton hicks (very mild). Peeing like crazy, and starting to really concentrate on my prenatal pilates. I want to stay as healthy as possible.

Thats great that you are feeling better, and have a wonderful ultrasound. Will you find out if its a boy or girl today?
