Kat gosh i really hate that your feet are giving u problems Must be really terrible. Hang in there it ll get better. at least u are having bowel movements. One less thing to worry about
Laura dont think u are being insensitive. I am not thinking that at all and i dont feel like that. So its ok. When the roles where inversed i was always blabbing about my pregnancy when most of you hadnt caught yet. So i apologize to all that i was insensitive to in that time. It is sometimes difficult but i am mostly excited and happy for you all. I am happy to say i was here with u all from ttc to catching the egg to giving birth! That in itself is a wonderful gift from all you wonderful ladies. I am glad to have had u here for soo long keeping me relatively sane. xxxx
Laura lots of signs now! How far gone were you when you had your son?
Sal, sorry you're feeling so down. It will happen for you. Don't worry I never thought you, or anyone else, has ever been insensitive. We all hear for each other on this thread whatever stage we are at and I promise to still be here when you get your bfp and baby.
AFM I'm struggling a bit at the moment, mainly with the SPD. It's just so painful all the time. I just want to cry when I'm not sitting down. Still 7 more working weeks before mat leave starts.
Kat - Huge congrats on your girls, they are beautiful. My feet were SUPER swollen from the pre-e when I was in the hospital (I went to the NICU every day in socks bc my shoes wouldn't go on) and they got worse about 2-3 days after delivery. A week out I woke up and had NO swelling and it hasn't come back! It was horrible, though - with the numbness and pain like you're talking about. No fun.
Here's a picture of my sweet girls while they were still in the hospital, but after they got off the respiratory support. The second one is in their going home outfits - our college alma mater gear.
Amelia was 4lbs 10oz and Reese was 4lbs 13oz, both down to just under 4.5lbs at their first weight check after being discharged from the NICU this weekend. They are tiny, but doing awesome!
Huge hugs Sal I can't imagine how hard it is feeling like your watching from the sidelines while it happens for everyone else. Hang in there it WILL happen for you !
OUCHIES Kat ! my feet have swollen as well but not quite as bad, the dent thing is the fluid build up, I wore ballet flats and when I took them off there was a ridge of puffiness its horrid hahaha. At least now the weight is gone with babies out. Does putting your feet up help ?
BBA - OMG they are so gorgeous !!! yah for getting them home thats awesome ! how is your body recovering ?
Lousie oh man I so feel your pain ! have you tried a support belt ? I have a belt called a smiley belt and I found it really helped.
Laura eeeeek hopefully its soon for you !!!
Sorry if ive missed anyone im super hungry so just making it quick, AFM baby has dropped and gone pretty quiet compared to her usual self, must say a break from being whacked in the ribs all the time is nice ! im so hoping she will be early !
BBA, love love love their home coming outfits!!!! The girls are so cute! Thank you vet much for sharing.
I was told the swelling in my feet is mainly from all the iv fluids that were pumped into me during the csection (plus the left over swelling after pregnancy). I was driving today to our first pediatric appointment and the ride was sooo long because of traffic, and by the time I got home I couldn't even feel my right foot
Louise, I can sympathize so much about the SPD thing. I had it really bad, and not much helped. Just make sure you keep your knees together while turning in bed, and take it easy when climbing stairs. You can try putting a head pad between your legs, or asking a warm bath frequently. By the end, I was taking 4-6 baths per day.
The girls are doing great though, the doctor was very much pleased with their weights and well-being.
KAt im glad everything is going so well
AFM i am now anywhere between 17 -19 dpo and still no af. I ve been charting for over a year and never been more than 15 days!!! I ve tested with the internet cheapies at 15 dpo but still neg. Stupid af which shed just show up already. :P
