Sara- the babies are so beautiful. I loved the pics of them all snuggled. I hope you are feeling better and are starting to adjust at home. I love the names you picked out!
Katie- OMG Ryan is such a cutie! Sorry you had such a long labor with him only to end up under general. It's all worth it in the end though, right! Did Chris cry? I have a feeling my DH will. He gets misty eyed now when he sees my tummy move. I hope you are healing fast from the cs. And I hope you darling doggie is behaving for you!
No more fur and drooling doggie toys in the nursery now that Ryan is here!
Franca- I feel the same things sometimes. I feel like maybe I have over done it and I lay down to rest. How often you you see your OB? I would bring it up next time for sure or call if it gets too bad.
Claud- Have fun on your maternity shoot. You are doing it outside right? Or am I thinking of something else? I hope you are able to avoid the traffic today with the marathon going on! I can't wait to see pics. I know you will look gorgeous.
Sonya- My only first trimester symptom was being tired. Around 9w all symptoms had gone away...so much so that I demanded another u/s just to make sure there was still a hb. I agree though, once you can feel him/her it is much more reassuring.
GI- Your DH is so funny! Sounds like he would get along marvelously with mine. My DH keeps making Alien references since he can watch my tummy move now. Since you are probably next how are you feeling?
Angela- How are you doing sweetie?
I know I missed people but I can't scroll back any further~! I hope everyone is doing well with their new families and impending births!
AFM- I am bored to death being off work. Yet, I have so much to do. I still have to clean out the nursery. I have to get it painted asap. Our crib that was supposed to take 8-12w is in already after only 5w. I mean that's great but I am no where near ready for it to be delivered. I did finally give in and order our crib bedding since we didn't get it for the shower. It kept showing on back order so that made me nervous. It is now showing as processed and on its way to my house! WOO HOO! We ordered our glider and are waiting for that to be delivered. I was able to hire a great housekeeper. She has been a great help. She is only here every few weeks to do floors and bathrooms and I do the rest. It's been a Godsend though. My sister-in-law told me she hired one while she was pregnant 8 years ago. She still has one. LOL I guess it's one of those things that if you get used to it you really don't want to let it go!
Question ladies...did anyone get super stuffed up or have lots of phlem in their chest during pregnancy? I am super stuffy every morning. After an hour or so it goes away. However, by the end of the day I am so tired and it becomes difficult to breathe. I have to use my inhaler way more than I ever have had to before I was pregnant. It's kind of freaking me out. The only thing that calms me down is feeling my little kickboxer in there saying hello.
I have another OB apt on Tuesday. I am hoping he doesn't tell me that there is even more protein in my urine. I am so scared of developing pre-e. I am thinking that they will have me go for my 1 hr GTT this week. Cross you fingers. I hope I pass!
