I am SO glad I am not the only one who does that! If I do not feel her move for an hour or two I freak out and try to get her to do something. My midwife was making fun of me she said I only need to fee a couple good kicks once a day and she is allowed to have "quiet" days. Well not in MY womb sweetie

I don't freak until half the day has gone by. By if I start to worry I have a glass of OJ or ice water and lie down. That usually gets them going!

I'm mobile.... sorry for the typos!

Had a midwife appointment yesterday and one of the girls in class had decreased movement. They sent her for monitoring and they gave her peanut butter. They said it's better than orange juice. I freak out easy too so next time I will try this for sure.

Re: Lil Shamrocks - January chat

Wish I had known about peanut butter during my 3D scan! Little lady wouldnt wake up for ANYTHING lol!

I had my 32 week midwife appt yesterday and it went great! Im measuring about a week ahead (which is normal for me). My midwife seems to think Im delivering at 39 weeks this time around (compared to 41 weeks last time) but I will believe it when I see it :-). We also talked about my birth plan, and she even referred me to some great resources for med safety during breastfeeding. I have medical issues and have been worried about taking meds during breastfeeding. For a while, I worried that Id have to either be under-treated or stop breastfeeding (both crappy choices if you ask me), but her resources helped to reassure me A LOT! Its good to know that I can have my cake and eat it too- nursing and being healthy!!!

Hubby is just now starting to be open about talking about our birth options, but I'm still expecting RCS. I think I can push it until the 27th (a little over 40 weeks), but I'm considering pushing for a later date. Just uncomfortable evicting the little guy since my other two wanted to bake so long. And it will likely be my first c/s without laboring for quite a while first. I just don't know what to expect.

Trying to figure out bc for after the baby. What are you ladies doing?
Hope all are feeling better! Do docs typically not let one schedule a CS whenever they feel like past 39w? As for bc, we just do NFP. Eventually DH will get the snip snip, but unsure when since our insurance doesn't cover any sterilization procedures or bc (I work for a Catholic hospital) so we'll have to pay for it out of pocket.

I'm not sure if I'm measuring ahead or not, but I'm not very graceful either. I literally have to roll out of bed. Good thing we have a high bed! Getting up from a chair is rather uncomfortable, too. And let's not talk about tying shoes.

My little lady has her head crammed down into my left hipbone. The u/s tech told me today that there's plenty of room up high, but she chooses to stay squished down there. No wonder my hip has hurt for the last 2 days and I walk funny!

Safe travels and have a great time!

Can't wait to get that part done! The ILs are bringing the crib when they come up to our place on Sunday to celebrate DS' belated bday.

Yuck! Feel better ASAP! I'm praying daily that no one here gets the flu that's going around.

Good to know!


AFM: The little miss looked good on the u/s and doppler scan this morning. Had my first NST which showed 1 contrax and 1 decel. They weren't too concerned about that. We'll have a growth u/s next week to see how she's growing, along with another NST. Hopefully I'll see the MFM doc next wek as well so she can update us on the plan for the next (last!) few weeks.

I *think* docs around here typically want you scheduled for before 40 weeks. And the docs I have seen have certain days of the week they schedule surgeries. The nurse said my doc was comfortable going up to 41weeks for a RCS (he was fine going to 42 weeks with my TOLAC, but vbacs are banned at the hospital he moved to). He did mention at one appt that there is no reason to go past 40weeks with a RCS, which was the only reason I anticipated having to push a bit for a later date. I am sure we will discuss it at this month's appt. I have seen the NP for the past few months, so it hasn't come up.

Glad there were no big concerns for your NST!

Panic is setting in! I'm just a couple days shy of 31 weeks! Maddie came at 31.6 after water broke at 31.3, twins were 32.3, kyndal 32, Kaiden 35.6 after mag, bedrest and being dialated to a 5 at 32 weeks! I could literally be having this baby next week o.O

Keeping you in my thoughts and hoping baby bakes a little bit longer!

Hope the LO stays put! Any need for bed rest so far?
