sorry as well for quick response but already running late for work-I had a measurement scan as I was not growing but they said baby was 5.5lbs last week in the 51st percentile and that all was well....welllll I was supposed to go in for a apt. next tuesday but they left a voicemail saying they switched me to next wed so that i could have ANOTHER ultrasound and to then follow up with my dr right after....hmmmmm worried-not sure if it is a measurement followup for baby or what....i wonder if he is going to be comming early?
Almost- you are so close... my lo was born early at 36 weeks 6.5 lbs. I wish he could stay for 2 more weeks. I couldn't experience the body part showing from my belly. Dont worry even I didnt gain much weight. I was happy that lo was putting weight. You are doing good so far.
Jem- I am amazed. How do you and others take care of 3 kids...they are all small not much of age difference. . Here I am so busy with one child.
I think the biggest shock was going from 0 to 1 baby.
I was so anxious and worried all the time (even though I worked in a nursery looking after babies) when it's your own, you have the feelings attached.
Ruby Is a very good baby and never really cries, thank goodness.
Hope you and your family are well- Ruby sounds such a good baby bless her- aww.
bump is fine, starting to feel movement now love it- just worry that they arent that regular at the moment! but i suppose 20 weeks is still fairly early- had a few hard kicks last week and all bit quieter this week!
i have been spending toooo much this weekend on baby things just cant help myself its fun!
do you have any knowledge of sacra iliac dysfunction i have been to physio as i have been having hip pain and they said its quite common? Also have a numb thigh as a nerve is being trapped from my growing size! Have been given crutches and a tubi grip bump support.
Ive been put on light duties at work but i am signed off for two weeks now by gp as i was still in lots of pain last week- i feel guilty a for leaving my original post and b for now being off sick on the lighter duties, but i have to think of baby and stop feeling guilty. After one day off work im feeling much better and less pain! Feel great in myself mind is willing body not so lol!!!
Cant believe im 5 months its so amazing and love this little boy so much. XXXXX
Time flies...trust me and soon you will be holding your boy in your arms. You just think about the baby and dont feel guilty. Now you need to take it easy and not stress yourself. Yay for the kicks... its such an amazing feeling. Its early. Once you enter 7th month the kicks
Will get regular and strong. At 8th month you will have to start counting the kicks. At 8 th month I used to feel wave like movements...actually baby was turning whole body..... have you thought about the name?
Its cool to spend on baby shopping. ...I too have the habit. Even now I shop. If you can afford it then why not.
Hello, is that spd? I've no experience or advice on that. Sorry.
But I've had friends who have had that-not quite bad enough for crutches but it's been bad. Don't feel guilty, it's one of those things you can't control.
As for movements, I could barely feel Ruby at this point, scary stuff. My placenta was at the front so that was why I was not feeling regular movement. Maybe its the same for you?
It's amazing how much you can love a little being so much already. I find it amazing that it's half of you and hall oh your dh growing inside your tummy.
Time does fly, Ruby is 11 weeks already. Feels like yesterday that I found out.
Her little personality is coming through, she giggled this week. Just because she is my third, I'm still amazed by her.
