ah thats such a hard choice hun. have you heard any negative things about the other hospital or is it just a case of not knowing? I dont get a choice so makes it easier
urgh i have gained! lol i'm not sure how much right now as a friend has my scales but im probably around 21 stone now!
nope im not going to make mine for another few weeks yet. I want them to think it wasnt planned so will be waiting till 11/12 weeks xx
The things we do lol I have to admit to thinking the same thing. Also I am wanting a slightly later 12 week scan as last time they couldn't get the NT measurement so I am hoping that a week or 2 later will make it a bit clearer.
I have heard some not so great reviews of the other hospital but some great reviews too. I just don't know. I wonder if they will let me have a look around before my booking appointment? It might help me decide.
I hope you ladies are doing well! Wanted to post my latest bump pic! I was scared I wouldn't look pregnant but I definitely do! I started out at 275 and I'm only at 279!
That is a lovely looking bump
You have done very well with your weight. You will probably be quite a bit lighter than when you started once baby arrives. With dd I did quite well, in fact I often say pregnancy was the best diet I had ever been on. I managed to stay the same weight throughout and just put a lot of water weight on in the final few weeks. So although by the time I had her I was about 10lbs heavier than when I started, the week after I had her I was 28lbs lighter than when I started (I was massively bloated in the last few weeks).
I decided to go for the hospital I had dd in. I have been to the EPU a couple of times so far this pregnancy due to bleeding and that is in the other hospital. I decided I really didn't like the environment so went with the hospital I had dd in. Now I have made the decision I am very happy with it. I just have to get OH driving now so he can bring dd to visit
Thanks ladies I have NO idea how I managed the weight. I had really bad morning sickness the first half, and I still get sick every once in a while. My appetite isn't typical, I still only eat 2 or 3 meals a day. Lately I've done a lot more walking. About a month ago I gained 3 pounds in 2 weeks. But since then I've lost 2 of those pounds. But at my ultrasound she is measuring about 5 lbs 12 oz so they don't mind the weight lost since she is growing. My best advice is to not go crazy on the cravings, just a little bit will satisfy the craving! I also do alternatives. Like if I want ice cream, I usually go for a yogurt instead!
Just got home from my ob appointment. Dr is not concerned. My vitals are normal. Baby is approximately weighing in at 3lbs 5 oz. He is slightly below average but nothing that dr is concerned about. He believes little man will be over 7lbs at birth. My csection is in 62 days. I was hoping they would confirm gender as i keep having dreams he comes out as a girl. They were not able to confirm gender as little man is breech so his bum was behind my pubic bone. Looks like I am 3 for 3 though as my other 2 were also breech. They said baby is facing my back so his spine is at the front and his legs at my back which maybe why I dont feel a whole lot of kicks or anything. Overall he is healthy though I just wish he would stop resting on my sciatic nerve. He looked absolutely perfect!!!
Wanted to update everyone! My little girl will be a month old on Wednesday! Can't believe it! I'm down to 254, I've lost 27lbs since given birth. I started at 275 when I got pregnant so I'm surprised! I'll be starting my work out plan in November and I'm hoping to get under 200lbs!
