I have heard swaddling is the way too go....
I am planning on 6 NB outfits/sleepers, 12 0-3 Sleepers and onsies to start
Socks, mits a few hats... maybe two or three outfits for when guests come but that is it.

So hungry this week! Anyone else ravenous?

I would buy 5-6 outfits in each size as everything gets covered in poo/wee even with constant nappy changes. The more outfits you have the less washing

My thyroid turned out to be almost nothing. It's normal size and doesn't have any nodules but I possibly have thyroiditis, which is inflammation (but maybe it's not even that). Anyway, I have to get a referral to an endoctrinologist.

I couldn't give the cats away, felt sorry for them plus one of them is pregnant so we will soon have a baby and kittens!!!!

Hope everyone is ok . Happy new year.

Re swaddling, tried one of these swaddle me things once but never worked for us. DD1 spent all her time asleep on me or on her dad .

Glad your thyroid is nothing Sweetkat- thatís great.

Not sure if I am going to get a swaddle thing, but will swaddle with a blanket. Super easy and donít have to buy all the crazy gadgets.

Just ordered our mattress from babies are us. They actually have a decent sale going on.

Ah! Went into the docs for a US to check weight due to GD and my fluids are low. They gave me a steroid shot in case she has too come early, getting the second one today.
Non stress test went great, so that is reassuring at least, and She is measuring at the 53% percentile - so no weight or growth issues due to GD. I am trying to keep calm and keep tally of all the positive things right now so I don't freak out. He did advise the was a chance she will have to come early if the fluid starts to impact her health, but at this stage we could be looking at a 37-38 week induction. Although we did discuss what would happen if she needs to be delivered in the next few weeks.

Send me prayers and positive vibes!

Hoping for the best for you and baby Myshel! 37-38 weeks wouldn't be bad at all if that is when you need to deliver. I definitely understand the worry though.

Sweetkat I'm so glad you kept your kitties. I just love my cats and can't imagine parting with them. I would start looking for homes for the kittens though. Also glad that all is well with your thyroid!

Myshel, wishing you luck and I hope you can get to 38 weeks safely! How often will they do nsts?
Sweet cat yay for keeping the cats

Afm, last ultrasound (4 weeks ago) put baby girl in the 41st percentile, and everything looked good. I have my next ultrasound on Friday to check her size, so hopefully she's chilling out around the same percentile! 30 weeks this week and i gained my first pound back after losing 10ish in the pregnancy. I also got a call this week that my lab results show Im anemic and I have to take extra supplements until delivery, so that's fun.

We're almost through ladies!!

Looks like I will be monitored weekly or more. Levels went down a bit more but babe looks good.
Hoping to keep her in here until 35 Weeks but could be anytime if Levels start distressing her in th womb.

Take care with the amemia darling queen! Glad she is on track so far.

I hope the anemia is easy to control darling! I'm glad everything is looking good otherwise!

Myshel - I hope baby continues to do well and stays in there as long as possible. At least at this point if she came early you can feel pretty confident that she will do alright. She would probably need some extra time in hospital, but otherwise I doubt would have any real trouble.

Hi ladies. Looks like she is coming in the next week or two (or three please!)
Levels went down again, however umbilical cord is still working well, she is still moving well which is great. If her growth scan which we are doing on Wednesday, shows she is still growing strong we will have another week at least. So fingers crossed and lots of prayers and positive thoughts.
Getting house ready as fast as possible if we can. Going out tomorrow to get some preemie things as we have nothing for preemie, just newborn. Hoping she stays in until 34 weeks and only has a small nicu stay.
