Hello Ladies,

I'm a little late to join but I thought I would stop by. I'm currently 23 weeks with baby girl #2 after 2 miscarriages in the past year. I'm so happy to be here but so nervous. It seems like every time I worry about something and find out everything is OK I find something else to worry about . I didn't even start telling family and friends about the pregnancy until a few weeks ago!! Anyway, whishing you all the best on our rainbow journeys!

Karoolia - agreed, I would be so mad to find out i had GD so far in. I am sure you are fine though. He probably doesn't think you have it so is making the test later.

Welcome Love.
Congrats on your rainbow pregnancy! May you have a happy and healthy rest of your pregnancy. We only told family on thanksgiving (Canadian so in October), and even then it was a panic. We haven't announced Publically and I have a few family members that don't even know yet.
So far we have had an easy run, but that doesn't stop me from having a panic attack every meeting or ultrasound! Just try to enjoy the good days when you have one.

Welcome LKGlove! I didn't announce for a long time either. We told our parents around 13/14 weeks then some other relatives (siblings, close aunts/uncles) around 16 weeks and did a big announcement at 19 weeks (also Canadian thanksgiving!). I worried constantly. I still worry at times, but the last few weeks have been better. It took a long time to get to a place where I felt relatively confident in the pregnancy though. A mc will do that to you. I hope your pregnancy continues to progress without any difficulties. You're more than half way through now!

Myshel - he probably does think I'm fine. My weight gain is right on average and I eat well and exercise, but still, I'm not impressed with how relaxed he is about everything. I would probably switch to someone else to be honest, but all the other OBs work with my husband's colleagues who are all my friends and I just want to keep those worlds separate. Besides, from what my husband has seen in the hospital my OB is truly the best when it comes to deliveries. He's the guy the other OBs call in when things get complicated.

Good delivery is important for sure. As long as he isn't ignoring you now t is worth it I think. Sounds like your hubs feels confident in his ability, that is reassuring.

Has anyone heard from our other March Rainbow ladies? I know not everyone lives in this site like I do but it has been awhile.

Hey ladies. So I found out I have Gestational diabetes. I am bummed about this, but after lots of research have decided I have this and can manage it. Will be going to the dietician on dec 12 so will see what else I need to do beyond diet change than.
Sending positive vibes to you all. Hope you are having a good week.

I'm sorry Myshel As things go though, that one isn't too bad really. A friend of mine had gestational diabetes. She was devastated at first, but she decided to really work with her dietician and was able to control it with diet. She actually lost a few pounds in her thirds trimester, which made her feel better overall. It wasn't easy, she really had to focus on meal prep and making sure she ate enough of the right stuff, but in the end it was absolutely manageable.

Myshel - I had GD my first pregnancy and I'm guessing I have it with this one also (I take the test tomorrow). I was a little scared at first but it gets easier. For me it changed from more of a hard core structured meal plan at first to knowing what I can and can't eat and what will and won't raise my numbers. You get use to it and it becomes more relaxed as time goes on. Bread and rice always seemed to make my numbers go a little over but adding exercise (small walks) helped.

Happy third trimester ladies

Not much to report here. I had a 4d scan on Monday and I have some really good shots of the face. Also had my anti D as I am Rhesus negative and my OH and DD1 are both Rhesus positive.

It feels amazing we are in third trimester but at the same time still so long to go. I am having food and prosecco cravings. Just over 2 months to go until I can give in

DD knows she is having a sister and she is very excited

Has anyone heard from Maryanne? Is she ok?
