Last week of second tri! I remember at like 15 weeks thinking second tri was sooo long! And here we are. Itís going fast... which is good as Iím excited to meet baby but OMG we have so much to do lol
Aren't you in the third trimester already? I thought it started at 27 weeks. I hate how every website says something different. If you take 40 weeks divided by 3, technically third trimester starts at 26.67 weeks (aka 27), yet for whatever reason some places say 28. I'm going to ignore those and consider myself third tri at 27 weeks lol.

I have always gone by 28 weeks as the 3rd trimester. It's what I have always seen on apps etc?

Alli - PUPPS has a rash, so you will know. Cholestasis doesn't present with a rash and the itching is normally on soles of feet & palms of hands, but can spread elsewhere. Last pregnancy it was only my feet and hands and it was INSANE. I have my appointment tomorrow so will see what my test says.

Buffy I did have a rash! Itís mostly gone away with the cream the doctor recommended so thatís good! It was so itchy.. it kept me up a couple nights. Misery! I do hope you donít have cholestasis it sounds awful!

Jwc I have always gone by 28 weeks and thatís what all my apps say but many women think itís 27 or even 26 weeks! My doctor goes by 28 as well and we start biweekly appointments then too!

Do your babies like to hang out on one side versus the other? Baby girl loves my left side. I feel such pressure there sometimes and sure enough it feels hard compared to my left and I swear itís her head or her little body squished there! Iíll push (lightly lol, sometimes itís uncomfortable how she sits) and sheíll move but come right back lol. Little turkey.

Eek! I dont know much about PUPPS, but I didnt realise it could go away. Cholestasis doesnt go away until you give birth. Im glad youve stopped itching. Its terrible!

My babe hangs out on the right hand side more. Sometimes my belly is even a little lop sided

I think it was eczema or perhaps a reaction to a new cream I was using for stretch marks. I donít think PUPPs goes away so my doctor was concerned that if it didnít go away it might be that but luckily it seems good for now! I did some googling about that and definitely didnít want it.

Gosh I donít know what any of those things you guys are talking about, I hope I wonít need to worry about them hoping for the best for both of you

Bubs hangs out on the right side always. Never have I had him sit/move/roll on the left side

This time next week I have my 28 week appt. not sure what to expect. Thinking of bringing hubby. He hasnít been to any appts other than ultrasounds yet so hopefully itíll be alright. Weíre thinking about going for a 3D/4D Scan maybe around 30-35 weeks. Mostly because Iíd like to make sure he is the right way around and to see if they can estimate the size of him.

Buffy - what is the usual timeframe for hosp appts after 28 weeks?

Yep, you don't want them!!

My next appointment is 3.5 weeks after my 28 week appointment. Then they are every 2 weeks until my c-section.

Hi ladies.

Is anyone suffering from vulva varicose veins? I had them with DD but this time they are SO much worse, they are huge.. doctors can’t do anything as they will go away once baby is born. They are so uncomfortable

I made DH look down there the other day as Iíve had a lot of pelvic pain and he said he didnít see anything... so Iím assuming itís just regular old pelvic pain and not varicose veins, which Iíve heard are misery! Iím sorry youíre suffering!

Some days it’s not too bad. I didn’t have them with DS but they came up with DD.

I had the midwife today. Baby is head down measuring a week ahead, HB was 141bpm. Don’t see her again until May 29th and a week after that I have my scan. It’s going so fast and I still have so much to get!
