Lol, Nell, not a bad training method at all! I'm starting to think of ways to train Gabby to fall asleep without needing a boob. And to also train her to nap for more than 45 minutes in her crib. Had her sleeping on me for 3 hours in the moby wrap today. If only there was better head/neck support in that thing, i could do more while wearing her.
MrsP and Katie, love the bump pics! And the photo bombing by the dog My cats like to show up in all of my pictures too, its funny
Katie, I hope all of that movement means baby has turned! everyone told me i would know if baby turned because it would be fairly painful and different from the normal movements.
What breed of dogs you got daydream? I've bought a Sophie la giraffe too, it's so cute!
Ha ha Chloe my cats are the same, we've got 2 cats & a dog How are your cats with Gabby?
I saw the mw today, good & bad news, my urethra pain & swollen ankles/thread veins are nothing to worry about, blood pressure fine (not sure how after a very stressful weekend) & still head down. BUT baby has only grown 1cm in 3 weeks! It was a different mw & she admitted thy could all measure it differently but she needs to act on what she's seen today so I'm booked in for a growth scan tomorrow. I've measured behind all the way along but now 3/4cm behind. Did anyone else have this problem? x
Mrs pttc - i measured 5cm behind and had no bump growth from 34 weeks. My scans showed baby to be 95th percentile though and a whopper. The Dr started talking about induction as soon as i hit my due date (but i was early so it didn't happen)
At 36 weeks the scan showed baby to be 6lb 10oz (so approx 9b at term as they say half a pound a week), she was born 2 weeks and 2 days later at 6lb 9oz. she's 25th percentile not 95th!
Enjoy the scan and the chance to see bubs but take it's measurements with a pinch of salt still. The lady in the maternity ward opposite me chose a c section based on scan showing big baby.....ended up being 7lb, poor woman
Good luck, MrsP! Hope the scan goes well. I doubt you will be able to determine gender without someone pointing it out. I often had to be told which end was baby's head! Those ultrasounds are tricky sometimes.
Measurements are also all over the place. Some women just have small babies. My ultrasound the day before Gabby's birthday put baby at 7 lbs, and she was born 6 lbs 13 oz, so it was pretty close, but then you have other people who are told they are having giants and the baby is born small So its all over the place, really.
Gabby has not been napping well yesterday or today, so I'm one exhausted mommy! Overtired babies are no fun at all!
Thanks ladies all is well, weighing estimated 5lb9 at the minute & expected to be around 7 or 8lb mark at birth. Hope its no bigger ha ha! Not sure if she dropped a clanger, she mentioned 'she' but this was before she'd gone down that end, & when she did go down she said we could look as we couldn't see anything anyway, so maybe it was a slip of the tongue, most people call it he or she rather than it, maybe she just thought its face looked like an she ha ha. It was frowning lol. Scary from your story Nell how wrong they can be! Anyway do they not normally say the bigger the baby the easier the birth (unless a whopper of course?!) x
