Sorry I went MIA but my computer freaked out on me - not sure what caused it yet but I had a lot of client work I had to get done since Friday so I stuck to that and avoided using it for anything else. We had the gender confirmation scan on Friday and we are indeed having a girl! (see photo below) DH is SO excited and I'm just happy to know for sure The appointment was awesome cause the monographer really took the time to let us watch Bean hang out and showed us all her little parts and took some great photos. I shared a video of her playing with her feet on my journal page if any of you are interested
sam - can't believe you're at 32 weeks! I'm glad boob is head down and ready to go My LO was head down too on Friday…wonder if she's planning to stay that way moving forward My belly definitely has gone from being up high to down low and I can feel LO down in my very low abs - could I have dropped at this point too? I hope she's not prepping to get out!!!!
Clarkey - my LO is on my left side and I haven't been able to sleep for 4 nights now as she seems to be pressing on some nerve too - it hurts! So I literally can feel your pain!! But how exciting about your crib! We still haven't picked one out…definitely on the to do list for this coming week. Which one did you get?
Zeez - how exciting that you finally got to share the news! Such a wonderful feeling, isn't it?
sasha - I can't resist from saying this: but as awesome as it is to see your LO, too many ultrasounds aren't good for your LO. They are safe when used in moderation but they don't know what excessive use of ultrasound can lead to. Sorry, but I had to get it out or I'd feel super guilty. On the other hand, glad everything looked great and your placenta has moved!
MrsChezek - Glad that you got confirmation that it's a girl at your scan. I just looked at your video of your lo playing with her feet. I can't believe how clear it is! Amazing and so exciting to see. Even if our bellies have dropped I'm quite sure that our lo's won't be making an appearance anytime soon. Are you feeling your lo's hiccups more these days as she is head down? I know I am, and it is a weird feeling having the hiccups down there.
Simms- yeah!! congrats on team pink!! We need some more team blue on here! lol.
Zee- Exciting you told your family about LO!!
Sasha- Happy your LO is doing well! I see my OB tomorrow and she will tell me about my placenta then and discuss back to work details. Hope all goes well!
Chezek- YEAH 100% girl And dont worry about baby into position or "dropped". Doesnt mean baby will be coming anytime soon! We bought our crib at Babies r us- Hamilton crib. It converts to a bed after but we might keep it as a crib for the next one and convert it after our second baby. Geez already thinking about the second one..lol. but we dont want to wait too long!
Pilot- Oh wow those pics are so clear of your LO face! Your baby is so sweet. I love it. i hope our pics will look that clear. We still have to book our appt but wont be until the end of January.
Hi Ladies - have been trying to catch up with everything on here as haven't been on for a while! Love all the scan pics - pregpilot great 3d pics!! We had another scan a couple of weeks ago but didn't get very good pics as baby was moving around so much!!! Scan was just to check blood flow as high risk pre eclampsia - everything was fine with it but they did find some protein in my urine! Just need to make sure my BP stays down!!
Had a crazy couple of weeks - went to London with DH for a couple of days and it wiped me out! Ended up full of cold!! Also having the house decorated so trying to live out of two rooms with the cats!!! Will be glad when it's done!!
Think we have decided on a name though - Isabelle Rose and she will be Izzy for short. What do you think? We now can't decide how to spell it
Also like Francesca but DH isn't too keen!!
Pilot and mrschezek - great pic. Both of them are so cute!
Clarky - know what you mean, we were thinking of number 2 while still ttc.
Joey - that's a lovely name. Hope that the Bp stays down, sure everything will be fine.
Afm - my scan today had to be rescheduled to Saturday because my doctor had to go to a delivery. Still it's not long till then. I'm still getting used to everyone knowing. My brother is so protective of the little one already and my mother is shopping up a storm.
Joey - glad things are looking good for you pre eclampsia wise! Love the name too…Izzy is super cute for a nickname!
Zeez - good luck at your scan on Saturday! Let us know how it goes
AFM, 27 weeks today. Crazy how quickly the second tri flew by! I took some pics this morning so I'll post a new progression shot on my journal probably tomorrow. Otherwise, nothing new…trying to manage constipation and the back pain. Staying afloat so far but it's definitely hard! Trying to increase my liquids but that seems hard in the winter for me…I'm just not as thirsty Any suggestions?
Mrschezek - you already had a healthy diet to start so might be doing this already but most fruit and veg will help for constipation. I found fruit like watermelon, citrus and grapes extra good for hydration. Soup is an excellent way to add liquid and veg and is lovely in winter.
And don't wait till you're thirsty to drink water. Set an alarm to go off a few times a day to remind yourself to have a glass.
If you like herbal teas make them part of your routine. I drink chamomile tea at night to help me sleep but Warning - drinking anything before bed means waking up to go to pee an extra time.
