Hi ladies, wow part 13!!! And happy Easter to everyone! 

 

Question- I’ve had A couple of very active days cleaning, unpacking, shopping etc due to my arrival in aus,  the house being a mess plus Fiance being away on work and I’ve noticed that my belly gets super tight. Even sore. Is that contractionS? Is it bad? How bad?! A friend told me to be extremely careful of tight feeling in belly and now I’m panicking! 

 

But yea, a couple of you were talking about your dh being away… It does suck big time. my fi is   Kinda what they call in aus a “fly in fly out” employee , meaning he works somewhere else (2 hours by plane north of here) and he’s usually away mon thru fri. Home only sat and sun. It gets me super upset as I never accepted this situation, long story, but now I have to deal witH it and in a country im brand new to. It’s been a challenge to say the least.

@cjfs:  That could be Braxton Hicks – in which case it’s not a bad thing but you should try to take it easy just to be safe! And it never hurts to call a doc if you’re worried. That sucks about your FI’s work situation. I really hope you two work things out!

 

How far along are you? 24 weeks, 2 days

What have you purchased so far for baby?  Not much yet – waiting until after the shower to do most of it. We did get our rocker/glider last weekend, we have a few clothes, and I’m getting my diaper bag next weekend for my bday! 

What colour/theme is your nursery?  Our nursery colors are yellow, grey, and navy blue. Not really doing a theme but having lots of patterns and trying to keep it clean, modern, and graphic. 

When is your baby shower?  May 18! 

 

What are you craving?  Nothing really – I haven’t had much for cravings this entire pregnancy. Except for maybe pasta but I craved that and ate it all the time pre-pregnancy also. I have  eaten more ice cream/milkshakes lately but that was after the dr told me to try that to help gain some weight and they are delish, but not sure I’ve really craved them…

From last thread:

@wifegoodman:  Aw thats adorable! I recently found that my baby LOVES anything with piano and dances to it. 

@MrsB1015:  I have my glucose test in three weeks and it just feels like it is going to be a pain! lol

 

@MrsB1015:  That is so cute! Oh my goodness!

@Mrs.D:  I would just eat a good meal, and drink a small glass of orange juice. Nothing crazy! When I went for my last 3D atg 15 weeks to see the gender, I was told to drink 20 ounces of juice an hour before my appointment. I did not do that and just ate and drank juice fifteen minutes before and was fine. =]

@MrsDTMajor:  Adorable bump! Don’t worry, someone asked me if I was having twins too on Friday. Um…just one in there. 

 This thread:

@katlovesjames:  Wow, that view looks amazing! So jelly! It’s so cloudy today when it was really hot this whole past week.

 

@cjfs:  Yeah, could be Braxton Hicks. I was told to watch out for a tight feeling on my stomach almost like a big cramp. I get a tight feeling if I eat too much, but it’s a different type. I would take a breather, drink some water, and if it happens again call your doctor.

 

@wifegoodman:  I can’t wait until Friday so I can join the 24 week club! lol

What have you purchased so far for baby?  What havent I? I am a little crazy.  The nursery is done except hte mattress and changing pad and we have a closet full of baby cothes from newborn to 3T!! Most are hand-me-downs but a lot are purchases too.  Because – again, I am crazy.
 

What colour/theme is your nursery?  It is a bird theme with mostly pink and green with grey.

 

When is your baby shower?  May 19th

 

What are you craving?  Fruity candy – I still cannot find the sprinkle taffy ( i have tried over 10 gas stations, not kidding).  But i have been known to eat some sprees, nerds, shockers, etc.  I also am a big sweets/icecream/brownie girl too.

 

Anndd..

We have finished the nursery!! We obviously need the mattress and changing pad and the sheet/cover for each.

What have you purchased so far for baby?  Just some outfits and onesies. Waiting until after the shower to buy most of the other stuff.

When is your baby shower?  Probably June 15th

 

What are you craving?  Not many cravings. I do want fruit a lot and fruit smoothies, though. I craved hot fries for a week but then got sick of them when I ate too many lol.
