soontobemrs1011 :  congrats on the good test results! What a relief! And yay for a baby girl!!

YogaMama :  yay for good test results!

Dreaming13 :  eek we went through a move recently too and I know it’s so stressful! You still have some time! Hang in there!

DrunkInLove :  You poor thing! What an awful scare. 🙁 did you get an update? I had brown spotting that turned into a big gush of red blood while I was at work very early in my pregnancy. Waiting for answers is complete agony. I hope everything works out for you!

AFM I am 32 weeks today. I had my appt. this morning and the doctor said my fundal height is still 29 cm so she is sending me for a growth scan. They can’t fit me in for a scan for 2 weeks so now I’m all worried and impatient. I just want some reassurance! Heart rate is still good and she moves constantly. I also think she is laying kind of diagonal or sideways based on where I feel her. I have been feeling really nauseated today though so I don’t know what’s going on!

<u>hollyberry4 :</u>  Yes! Thank you! It’s been super stressful but I (well, both my husband and I) breathed a huge sigh of relief when we saw a little nugget in there measuring right on time at 6w1d and with a heartbeat of 110. They like to see 120, so I go in for another sono at 8 weeks but I’m not complaining about the extra scan… they’re not worried though since it sometimes takes the heartbeat a few days to reach that point.

So, yes, answers and relief but I honestly don’t think I’ll feel better until a baby is in my arms.

36+4 and feeling pretty uncomfortable with Braxton Hicks and swollen legs and feet. My feet look like watermelons and my toes like cherries. 

Finally got our Genetics results; 0.0134% chance of Cystic Fibrosis (DH’s cousin has it) and thankfully I am not a carrier for Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia. My husband will pass on the gene, but baby will be an “unaffected carrier.” Grateful. Praying that baby boy will stay put and be as healthy as possible. Check up Friday. 

I will reply to others soon. 

Have a wonderful evening, ladies! 🙂

Dreaming13 :  How are you doing? Any more progress with room painting?

soontobemrs1011 :  Glad you are feeling well and getting great test results! 🙂 Congratulations on a girl! Such beautiful news! 

ajillity81 :  How did your OB appointment go? I think that’s great that your son has the baby doll to help him slowly understand about the new baby. My girlfriend is pregnant with her 2nd and her daughter is 2 years old and not quite understanding yet about the new baby on the way. I guess it’s hard to grasp at such young ages. Hope you are feeling well! 🙂 

vanike :  How are you feeling in your pregnancy? How far along are you now?

YogaMama :  Yayyy for great test results!

DrunkInLove :  Glad you had a great scan! I am 36+6 and I still worry about baby boy at every appointment, I think it’s common. 🙂

AFM, Back from my check up today. Back pain and swollen legs and feet are not of concern to my OB, the pains are not Braxton Hicks and he said the swelling is part of the pregnancy and also could be weather related. He joked it brings out my pedicure, lol. Pre Op Monday and hoping that goes well. Can’t believe how fast the days are going! 🙂

weightwatchers152 :  I can’t believe how close you are!! My feet/legs are getting swollen when I’ve been on them all day in the heat. I imagine it’s only going to get worse (my blood pressure is super low so no worries there). I hope your time left before you are a mommy is enjoyable!

Dreaming13 :  Thank you, friend! Hope you had a great weekend and are feeling well. 

AFM, had my Pre Op today, it went well. I met with a nurse first, and then the anaesthesiologist.

He went over the procedure, risks, and plan. They are going to use a combined spinal/epidural so that if they are concerned the C Section will go longer, the other medication will kick in and also less in the blood and going to the baby. He did caution me that they may have to convert to general anaesthetic, but ideally they want the Mom to be awake and be able to meet the baby, etc. 

Once the baby is out, he’ll be examined by the NICU staff, then my husband can go over, then they’ll bring baby close to me for the first hug and kiss. 

The doctor told me it may be chaotic in the OR because there will be lots of people taking good care of me. He told me the anaestheologist working that day is excellent. 

Can’t believe I’m reaching the end of the pregnancy. Surreal. 

Have a great day, ladies! 🙂

weightwatchers152 :  glad your appointment went well! That’s great to be prepared and know exactly what is going to happen. Please remind me what day your C-section is scheduled for?

It’s Friday ladies! We have our last shower on Sunday so I’m excited! It’s co-ed and at our house so DH is excited, too! I hope everyone has a good weekend!
