We had our hospital visit yesterday. Measured exactly 24 weeks. They took a blood test and urine sample and said they would let me know if anything came back irregular and if I hear nothing assume all is okay and I can get the result at my next appointment. Was great to hear the hb again. I also called up a student midwife they can come to your appointments with you and birth if you choose and I thought it sounded great. I am meeting her for a coffee and chat to get to know each other to see if it gels and if I don't feel comfortable I can always tell her it isn't working out. It gives them experience for their training too so it sounds like a win win situation. DH is happy for me to get one so that makes life easier.
That is a great idea.
My little sister is in University doing a nursing degree and she will have a paed/midwifery part of her course & has to draw on real life experiences so I am letting her be at Millie's birth so she can use that!
I think it's fab to allow students to be as hands on as possible.
I was going to do the 3d/4d ultrasound but honestly, the $120 can go to towards my wedding. We are down to 10 weeks until our wedding and we still have so much to pay for! I've paid for half of it already and I'm waiting for OH to come up with his half. Only thing is that he hasn't lost all the weight for the military to sign up which he was counting on by now and his bank wont give him a loan either because he cosigned for my car and they say with his truck and my car payments he can't afford a loan. But he doesn't pay the car payment, I do. So I got really stressed yesterday and he says not to worry but I am trying to figure out where he is going to pull $3k out of his rear in just a matter of a couple weeks when everything has to be paid for. (He's a procrastinator which is why he hasn't lost the weight he was supposed to by now). I know it will turn out perfect but I hate when things come undone that I have already counted on!
JJ'S my DH and I were just discussing 3d/4d ultrasound as we had one with DD and we are worried our son is going to say "why don't I have one of those?" when DD is watching her DVD. It is a real shame but totally get you about wedding expenses. We had a low budget wedding and at our reception I was relying on my dad to pay for it as we didn't have the $ really was annoyed as my dad wrote a cheque to us instead of the venue so we had to then turn around and use our honeymoon savings to pay for the venue until we had a chance to cash the cheque and deposit the money back into our account. Not ideal but we had no other option.
All the best for your big day...
Thanks Libbysmum! Sorry your wedding didn't go as planned. I'm hoping that he hears good news today from his bank. Otherwise he will have to check with his mom. I'm going for a tasting today of BBQ pulled pork and good down home food with it. I was going to do this food myself but my planner said it would be too much added stress on me if I chose to do the food. Making me very hungry thinking about it! LOL!
Well ladies, I started leaking colostrum last night!! I can't wait to see my little man when he is fully done baking!
not really getting backache yet but getting that omg i cant breath feeling and have started getting braxton hicks...booo
aye I've been getting braxton hicks too. I don't mind them so much, I just find them to be a peculiar feeling (even though I'm used to them from previous pregnancies, it still feels weird, if you know what I mean).
i didn't get a 3d/4d ultrasound with my dd mainly because nowhere near where we lived offer them but my doctors office does an ultrasound at 36 weeks "to check position and size of baby" so they can get away with billing insurance for it instead of the patient and they said they do 3d/4d ultrasounds for free during that one. i'm kind of excited to see how it turns out since i didn't get it done with my daughter.
regarding the wedding sorry your stressing out about it hopefully you get good news!! me and my husband got married a couple months after having my daughter and we couldn't see spending money on a wedding when we could use that money towards her so we had a friend that is an ordained minister come to our house with my parents and my sister and he married us in my living room! it was perfect for us!!!
afm i received a letter today from old employer asking me to fill out an exit survey regarding my employment with them. so of course i was brutally honest and at the end it asked me for boss's name and said if i gave it the information would be given to her boss..it kind of made me feel good to know she may be reprimanded for a second time!!
