I used pampers with my first too,but in Germany there were not so many brands to choose from like here,so I just went with that to be sure.

I have a question about eating now at 21 weeks.I definitely gained weight,I find out Thursday how much,but I don't think I eat so much,I go with two large meals a day,lots of water and snacks like water melon or a hot dog...I will ask my doctor about it but I just find it weird that I am not starving like I used to.Two meals does not sound like it is enough right?

We are really suppose to be having 3 meals a day (pregnant or not). Breakfast, lunch and dinner. The doctor I spoke to yesterday says we have to make sure we have our meals and snacks in-between them as well when pregnant and they must be big meals.

Pineapple, the scan was soooo much better! Baby was in perfect position so we got told the sex instantly, which meant the rest of the time we could just have a good look at her, amd got a few minutes of 4d which was amazing! Plus my dd and mum got to be there too, which made it special.

I use asda little angels on my dd, and they are amazing. I prefer them to pampers tbh, although the only reason i prefer them is theyre a bit more spacious than pampers. Plus alot cheaper! We actually bought a pack of size 2s today for new baby =D

The last few days I have been feeling regular kicks, woohoo! I feel them for maybe 5 minutes then a couple of hours later I feel loads again. Still nothing strong as my placenta is obviously absorbing it, but theres no mistaking baby kicks now.

Names, we havent got any picked out yet for definite, but we are leaning towards Daisy just now. I love it and so does OH so its a definite maybe.
My friend who uses the Little angles, said exactly the same, so I will most probably go the same route. I do have a few packs though. A pack of Huggies (from the Sainsbury's pregnancy club) then a pack of pampers (from the Boots pregnancy club) and then a few pampers samples I got through the post. so Once they used I will most likely switch to little angels

Names, well. Before we knew the sex, i loved the name Addison and so does OH. He also like the name Brook, which I am not that keen on, so its a middle name (Addison Brook). We've not come up with anything else tbh. most names are already taken by family/friends little ones, but who knows, could change her name after birth

I am so happy you had a positive experience with your scan, and for 35 that is really cheap. I think the cheapest I can get round here is 65 and thats just to date/sex in 2D.

Well, i eat my 3 meals a day, and i snack on fruit. My meals tend to be more of the vegetarian type, but only because this pregnancy doesnt seem to like meat much. Yet I have gained a wopping 15kg's to date. So I am getting a bit worried that I may be eating too much!, Which is strange as its all healthy. (I def get my 5 a day in)

Baby movements - Well i feel her every so often, but nothing major,I cant wait for a proper punch or kick so OH can experience it too! (I cant believe I am actually wanting to be beaten up from the inside, how strange) But I think in my own little way its the reassurance of baby being active and healthy which out weighs the punches

Addison is awesome!

That we talk about names,I wasn't sure about the name "Jason Jay" anymore so I start looking more.I found fast one" Jayden Edward",I am not american so I don't know how common the name "Jayden" is..We also have the problem that the last name is" Jessup" which is so hard to get it fit with the first name. The first name,I think,got to start with a "J"so it sounds nicer with the last name...My hubby hates it...he say that is too trendy.
Now I like it so much that every other name does not sound good.

Hey ladies glad everyone is doing well and babies are healthy!

Had a quick question... So earlier today as I was doing my make up I started getting a cramp like it was inside my left hip but I ignored as I always get cramping because baby is growing. Well all of a sudden it went from cramping to this huge pain from the hip all the way down my leg and I was on the floor crying in pain because it hurt so bad. Fiance was scared and thought I was going in labor... he had to pick me up and put me on the bed. The pain did not stop for about five minutes. Then it was slowly gone and I was alright. I don't know whats going on but first I get the fainting and now this... it scares me.

You have to drink a lot of water.When I get a headache,growing pains or cramps I just drink lots of water and it goes away.I can see in my urine if I need to drink more or not.If is too yellow then definitely I have to drink more.The urine got to be colorless.One tip you can eat wetermelon that is full of water and cools you off especially now with the heat.I think you are not drinking enough..I get growing pains that goes from my bikini zone down to my legs but not so bad as you describe it.

Had my midwife apt today and talked to her about me fainting and the pain from yesterday. She said that it was most likely the baby on a nerve.

Decided to buy a pair of maternity jeans and they are so comfy but why do they keep lowering to the point were my pants get sagged at the butt? Kind of annoying but I love them because they are so comfortable.
