One good thing thought.....I was able to finish a hat to match one of the sleep sacks I made for the baby.

When is everyone's next appt? I have one tomorrow and I'm a little bit nervous. At my last app I had gained 9 lbs and went from measuring right on time to three weeks ahead. I know I've only gained about 4 lbs since then but I'm curious about how I'm measuring.
I hope you pass!
My next appt is on the 15th.
I always measure bigger starting around 34 wks. I also gain around 50 lbs each pregnancy, but have huge babies, huge placentas, and lots of fluid. It always comes off, so I don't sweat it (and my midwife is really more concerned about a healthy high protein diet than weight gain, so I guess I am lucky there).
I have been known to gain nothing one month and 9 lbs the next.

Our district does a 4 day week, so they start early and end late. We don't follow any sked but our family cycles...we are starting early for us so we can take a month off when baby comes.
I had a lady at a store get me all worked up yesterday...
I had been running around town in hot humid weather and it was at my last stop. I was a bit cranky, too, lol. I walked by her and she said, "Oh, you're having that baby soon!" I kept walking and said, "I hope not, I''m not due til OCtober!" Too which she called after me, "Oh, then you;re having a boy, right?" I called back that we were team green and dashed away from her. Seriously, what karma o I have that gets me these types of comments??? I get so many starting at around 6 mos...I must be due, I'm having twins, just wait and see how big I get...on and on. I have had people ARGUE with me about the twins and edd. Mostly women, but once it was the same man at church, lol (which, ironically, is where I get the most negativity).
End vent.

Re: New chat thread--come in, come in!

Passed my glucose test DD got a sticker for holding my hand, but I didn't get a sticker Also had follow up ultrasound bc baby doesn't want us to see her head apparently... She did let them get the brain shots they needed this time, but no face ones... Bummed too, bc hospital has new technology and the features are so real and lifelike instead of alien babyish... She was also supposed to weigh about 2.5 lbs according to baby center and the sono guess was 3.5lbs... Wondering if she will be big or early??? Never had a sono this late... Both 20wk and 30wk sonos bumped my due date up a week to the 12th... Baby Center says the 16th, and Dr. says the 19th... 12th sounds hte best to me

Yay! Sorry you didn't get a sticker. Myself, I'd prefer chocolate...
I have been super tired the past two days...which isn't good because I ought to be doing more than chilling on DS, lol.

Re: New chat thread--come in, come in!

No kidding - they always give my DD candy just for sitting at the appointment with me. Where's my treat!?

I had my 30wk appt yesterday (I was actually 30wk 2 days) and all is well. Measuring a little big - 31.5 weeks - but midwife didn't seem concerned and weight gain and all the rest is on track. Getting into the 30's seems like a huge milestone to me...I just can't believe this baby will be here so soon!

Re: New chat thread--come in, come in!

I always measure ahead at the end...I haven't had an appt for 5 weeks, so it'll be interesting to see where I am this time.
I had a lady at church say, "please tell me you are due soon!"
Well, thanks alot. I lied and said next month...well, I could have him next month since I'm due the 5th and had my last 2 weeks early. Even "the end of next month" sounds better than October, lol. I don't get why people have to get so hung up on it. I would seriously have a much more relaxing last 6 weeks if everyone would keep their mouth shut!

I'm fairly small, but carry my 8lb babies ALL out in front like giant beach balls... people always think I'm having twins even when I have a month left... I don't think I get that big, but I think people are just not used to seeing really pregnant people since we are only really big for the last months... or don't know how to as you said, "keep their mouth shut" Don't let it bother you

Re: New chat thread--come in, come in!

For some reason everyone loses their mind and says stupid things when talking to pregnant people. I'm not sure why...I'm sure I've said dumb things too Anyway, it is annoying so I'm sorry it's bugging you - soon that baby WILL be here!!!

thx, ladies. I really try not to let it get to me, but it does.

On a positive note, baby is no longer posterior!!! YAY! We had a really great prenatal yesterday.

Checking in.

Been super uncomfortable, which is bad enough, but my big problem is that I don't get really beg at all. People keep saying "I was thy big at six months."
Well, this is my fifth baby, so I can assure you my back is a mess and my girly bits feel like they are holding up a bowling ball.

Also, my mom just found out her Mayo appt is October 8th. She will be there for like, a week. I'm due the 9th. She has been there for all my babies births. I just can't believe she will miss this one. (so far I have always delivered right around my dd).
