Sparkly i totally get you babes...With Hero i did not enjoy even ONE scan. Everytime i was crying my eyes out in advance and during the whole scan. I only allowed myself to relax for about an hour after the scan and then panic set in again. If we ever go for number 2 i dread going through all that stress again....
Sparkly, I held my breath in sheer terror at every scan. I couldn't bring my daughter till I was over 30 weeks and even at that point I was afraid in case something happened. Everything is going to be wonderful. Give a wave to your gorgeous girls from us.
Vicky, thanks for the tips. I'm brewing some tea for my boy right now. I'll let you know how it goes!!
Sassy, haven't read your journal yet, but I'm so sorry.
Got a sitter lined up and we're going out for dinner tonight to my favourite restaurant. Hope I can stay awake!
Enjoy your night out, Round! Sooooo well deserved!!
Good luck Sparkly!!!
Vicky, that trip sounds great! Hero sounds so clever and adorable.
Hearty, you asked how I put Alistair to sleep. Well, until he was about 11 months or one it was bath with bedtime (lavender) bubbles and soap followed by a quick infant massage and pjs. Then I nursed and sang him the same few songs, and then Alex gave him a bottle of formula. We laid him down in his crib with his noise machine and ceiling projector on and told him 'night night' and then left. Every once in a while he would protest for a few seconds but usually he'd roll right over and sleep. After I stopped nursing he also seemed to dislike the massage thinking I was tickling him! So, now it's bath (some nights.....still use the bedtime bath), pjs, cuddles with a story and bottle (...need to drop that bottle), a quick prayer or song and then he's usually saying 'night night' and will sometimes even walk to his room! If we carry him he still yells "night night!" We put on his noise machine, tell him good night and lay him down with his CoCo (his toy monster) and blanket and leave the room. Again, he almost always rolls over and goes straight to sleep but every once a while he will protest (not by crying but by hollering for us) for less than a minute. If were more than a minute I would go in and see what was bothering him.
Of course I was being ridiculous......and both my baby girls are just fine even better than fine, they are both measuring 19+2 so that's now officially a week ahead of dates!!! They are both just over the 50th centile and no abnormalities were seen at all
I ate half a bag of skittles before I went so they were both quite active, and at one point near to the end of the scan Pussycat was kicking Owl......so Owl punched her back That's what I like to see, my girlies taking no shit!!
Unfortunately Owl's placenta is posterior low lying, so they will keep an eye on that and hopefully it will move up as my womb grows.
