It is hard for me to not do everything-I am a clean freak so it is hard to not keep things spotless(though I must say the rest of my family seems happier with out me on their case to not make a mess because I just cleaned!)Anyway,we haven't told everyone yet because of the spotting in the beginning we wanted to wait-I am 34(35 in Sept)so I know my risks are higher than last time.I saw some of you guys talking about pain meds-I was enduced with my 1st and had an epidural but I am not sure this time if I get one again.I didn't like it at all,and after I had alot of pain in my back.It took 2 tries for them to get it so I don't know if that is why.Good luck to all the moms close to delievering and thanks for listening to me whine!
I feel ya! I lost 22 pounds in the first 14 weeks, but I still wasn't as bad as what you are describing...I would definitely talk to your Dr. I know that my issues were related to my pre-natals, not totally the reason, but they contributed.

I hope you figure it out and feel better soon!!

He's the best kid ever. I seriously couldn't ask for anything more. He's so calm, and friendly, and just the cliche bundle of joy. And freakin cute, if I do say so myself!

Congratulations Scornelius!!! Dawson is adorable!

Hello everyone. I havent been around much this past week-- just being lazy laying by the pool and stuff.

Has anyone had experience with the Rhogam shot? I have to get it in my rear end on my next apt.... not looking forward to that one (lol Patsy reminded me when she said she didnt want people looking at her butt).

Patsy-- dont forget to update us on your little one! We will all be eager to hear and see photos ofcourse!!

I've had many, many Rhogam shots. My best advice is: stand up, hold your leg straight, but don't tense the muscle. It will pinch (and maybe burn) for a minute, but then you should be ok. They use a slightly thicker needle because it's an oil-based serum.

If you really tense up, then it might hurt for a while after.

As far as your December trip goes, as long as you aren't having any preg. complication, I say go for it! The weather will be awesome and James will have a blast! It will be your special trip with him before the baby comes!
Thank you! We are really excited! I was really thinking December would be the best time to go anyway- any earlier would be more crowed and too hot, and any later is cutting it too close! I'm pretty sure my doctor will be okay with it, he is very laid back. Man, I don't think he expected to see me this soon .

I had the epidural with Madeline and plan to have it with this one as well. I'm more afraid of the pain of labor than I am of the poke in the back! I don't know that I ever got the option of the Nubain shot (I don't remember it being mentioned with either pregnancy).
Phew, thats a relief. I just know if I forget something DH will never be able to find it amongst all these boxes.
I forgot-- I also have the two baby books in the car, as they said they'll ink anything I want with his feet/hand prints and I've got one photo book thingie and one actual album thingie to do.

I don't know why but I just REALLY hate the idea of an epidural. My OB is one of only two in the area that offer the IV medications as an alternative... I learned that at my childcare class...
They said it's less common because the IV drugs can make the baby less responsive (because Nubain is a narcotic)... so it could possibly heighten the chance of a C-Section if baby went into distress.. but I've been given Demerol twice (same category of painkiller as Nubain) for my gallbladder attacks and they've monitored Lucas well after the shot to see how he handled it and he was fine, so I'm not too worried about that.
I trust my OB and sorta thought it was fate that the two OB's I was torn between at the beginning are the two that offer this as an alternative to the epidural. Kinda like I was meant to do it this way, as I'm more comfortable with it. Is that crazy??
I'll report back how it goes!

Talk to whoever is doing your prenatal care, NOW! Don't wait until the day before like me and still be a bit wishy-washy...
I hate when other peoples opinions overshadow what I want. My MIL gave me a TON of crap about circumcision ("How can you do that to him? They don't use pain medication you know!"..actually, my OB DOES use pain medication, LADY!) ...and told me I was an idiot for not wanting pain medication and how I'd see afterwards and blah, blah, blah.
Decide on YOUR terms and if anyone asks say "I haven't decided yet" but be confident in what you chose and not take anyone elses crap. Best advice I can give!

With my 3rd I said NO nubain and got the epidural. I labored for 17 hours before I got it and ended up delivering within an hour of getting it... that was the best hour of all 3 labors for me.

Best of luck tomorrow morning!!

My original plan was not to have any meds at all though after more than 48 hours of labor (BACK labor at that), I just was so exhausted that I needed a little something to help me to relax to have enough energy to push that baby out. By the way, pushing was the EASY part! totally!
My OB said she turns the drop off about an hour-two hours before she thinks I'll be ready to push so that I'm not out of it. Demerol, like I said up yonder there somewhere, is the same class and never made me groggy.
We shall see!
Thanks for the input though, it's appreciated!! Definitely why these threads are great!

Thanks!


Scornelius

Awww, now I'm super exctited to see my guy TOMORROW!

Ugh, I was going to the pool yesterday (my parents have an in ground I totally planned to be taking advantage of ) but it was 50 outside! WTH?!

I got my Rhogam in the shoulder... Just walked in the lab, told them my name, gave them the order and she stuck me in the shoulder while still discussing their co-workers affair with the other lab attendant...
Why your bum?!

I'll report back Friday, probably. I never asked if the hospital had wifi.

When I had James in December I brought sooo much stuff to the hospital. I thought I was going to need so much stuff. Turns out I used almost nothing and then I wished I hadn't brought so much since we had to lug it all home. And you get so much stuff from the hospital it ends up taking up a bunch of room! This time I'm, just bringing my camera, my make up/ toiletries, and some extra socks!

Wow- crazy busy board yesterday and today.

Dawson is such a handsome little guy. So cute Glad to hear all is going well.

Piecey- Goodluck tomorrow. In less than 24 hours you could be a Mommy

Harleyquinn- Thanks for the Kohl's heads up. What great deals.

To all the new Moms to be... WELCOME AND CONGRATS

I had my doctors app't yesterday, I was there for 2 hours. She was called away to do a C-section. Oh well, I did get a lot of reading done. Anyway, not much progress on my end. She thinks Natalie is 6 1/2 pounds now. Looks like she will be an 8 + pounder. Both me and my DH were 8 pounds so I am sure she will be too.

Okay girls- have a great day!

My cell phone will definitely be on me at all times. But it turns out a few of my friends are offering to come over and keep me company, at least until bed time so that I don't have to be alone Then of course I have my very fierce (read that with MUCH sarcasm) guard dog keeping watch too


Scornelius, your little guy is absolutely precious! What a sweetie

Harleyquinn- I just ordered some stuff off of Kohl's. Thank You ()so much for the tip. I was able to use the charge today and still save an extra 15%. The swing ended up being only $59.49. I was looking at that exact one on Amazon, but they were out of stock. Thanks again!!!!

AHHHH!!!

I'm so sick of these stupid computers. For over a week our computers at work (library) will not stay up. They go down for a couple of minutes and then come right back. Sometimes they go down for about 20-45 minutes and we have to shut off all the monitors and constantly tell everyone walking in that they are down..."No, the Internet isn't working...no, you can't type something...no, I have no idea when it'll be back up."

This happens from time to time, but it usually stays down completely and then is fixed, but AT&T won't fix anything because by the time we call them, the stupid system is back up. They won't do anything until they see it's down themselves...there is obviously a problem with the lines.

We've been dealing with it for a week and a half, and I keep telling the regulars that they need to go to our other buildings (4 of them less than 5 miles away) until at least next week or they have to deal with it going down. They won't listen and they are getting more and more mean as it keeps happening.

AHHHH!!! It's gone up and down 4 times since I've been trying to type this!!!

Ugh, I HATED when computers went down at work.

Whats my balance? I don't know.
How much is my payment? I don't know.

Manual teller work is the poops.



I'm off to make sweet and sour chicken for my and DH's last night alone together for awhile... I can't believe I go in in 12 hours!!!

I spent my last day having lunch with a friend and then we came home and unpacked my kitchen and I did laundry, too. SO exciting!
Oh, and the house got treated for termites (which we don't have, but it was written into our contract when we bought and we never had the treatment done)...
What an exciting last day as a non-mommy!
