I made up the pregnancy announcement I want to put on Facebook, when we announce it to everyone! I am so excited about how it turned out! We originally planned on waiting until second trimester, but we are both getting very anxious to tell everyone. I could see us spilling the beans if my ultrasound (Wed.) and dr. appt (Thurs.) go smoothly this week!

Here is the announcement!:
VERY CUTE IDEA!

Missing hubby, he started night shift last week, nights a week. But has spent the entire weekend doing side jobs to earn some extra cash to pay for the midwife. So he hasn't been here all weekend either. Hate going to bed alone so many nights in a row.


My neck has been killing me from trying to sleep on my side! So annoying. Trying ice yet again, I iced a good long time last night and it wasn't as bad this morning.

Aw! Well I think it is great your husband is working to pay for the midwife. Such a bummer to miss him but feel blessed that you have a great partner for this pregnancy and to raise a child with. Sounds like a great guy If I were you I would put some heat on it, ice is only good for really fresh injuries.

absence does make the heart grow fonder! i had the man home for the weekend and we got a lot accomplished - we signed on the house on friday and then he worked on packing up the kitchen for our move and kept the dogs occupied while i was at work. now he's back on the plane headed to work. next time he comes home it's baby time! hard to believe i only have 3 weeks left of work! i feel so big large and awkward. it still baffles me that there's a 5 lb human inside me.

DP - Stella's room!

Suzie - That announcement is adorable!

Krissy - I cant wait to see your little munchkin, 3 weeks will go by so fast!

As for me, I am hanging in there. TOM is supposed to be here Wed or Thu and I havent tested yet. I figured I would just wait as long as possible. Fear of dissappointment I suppose.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

I am due in 2 weeks (Oct 8) so I assume I will be before Krissy. I am also so uncomfortable. I am ready to be done with this pregnancy, but on the other hand I am not ready yet for him to be here, there is still so much to be done.

My sciatic nerve is flaring up sooooo bad, it is practically unbearable. It was good for a few weeks, but then starting getting really bad since Saturday.

Right now, we are trying to figure out what convertible car seat to get for Brandon so the new baby can use his Chicco KeyFit 30 infant carrier. Anyone have any good recommendations? It also needs to fit my 2011 Subaru Forester in the rear facing position for quite awhile (we want to rear face until at least 2 years old if not longer).

I really am blessed, he's been a better husband then I could have ever asked for. I gush about him all the time. He's truly an amazing gift. I make sure I always let him know how much I appreciate him.

I tried heat, ice helped the most. As a massage therapist we were always taught that heat is great as far as feeling good, but it doesn't help the problem. Heat increases inflammation and and ice decreases it. And to only use heat if you are going to follow it with ice.
After a nice long icing last night my neck is 75 % better. And tomorrow I get one of the pregnancy massages my hubby got me for my bday! YAY!

Good luck with the test! I didn't think the stuff tasted all that bad. The worst part for me was being hungry for so long!

Lucky! I had to fast! If I was allowed protein before hand my numbers probably would have been better.

I'm getting a headache dealing with all this GD stuff. The pharmacy called me to tell me the strips my doctor ordered were ready to be shipped, but I had a high co pay of $100 but they'd give me a coupon bringing it down to $60. I asked how many strips is that? Thinking it must be like 500 or something! She said that was for 100 strips! I told her that was crazy because I can go to walmart and get 100 for $40. So then she offered me cash patient pricing on a generic brand. How can they charge so much for this stuff?
I don't even know yet what glucose meter the diabetic program is going to give me and set me up with, so why are we getting strips already anyways?

Had an amazing pregnancy massage in the comfort of my own home last night. I felt soooo good. Then I had a night full of scary nightmares. ugh, there goes the stress relief.

We had our second ultrasound today! It went great! She said baby is growing perfectly and showed us baby's strong heartbeat! They are confident all is well now. She said they most likely wouldn't do another ultrasound until 20 weeks. I see the doctor tomorrow at 2:30, and am so glad to know going in this time it is all good news for sure!

Yay for a good ultrasound, Suzie!

And congratulations on the BFP, Andi! That was a long time coming for you

Things are good here, the diet is more under control and I'm less fatigued. In fact, I began swimming three days a week and have been doing very well with that, and will add my TTap back in on the off days I'm not swimming. Officially 14 weeks and change now, so no matter what litmus is used I'm in the second trimester (some people say 12 or 13 weeks, it gets confusing!).

Oh, and after much hoping and praying, it looks like I'm actually getting my homebirth VBAC! We cash pay our medical services, so a homebirth is much preferred. The hospital VBACs I've had were hugely expensive, even with no anesthesia or complications, just because they can charge more. So finding a CNM with one of our local birth centers who is willing to take previously successful VBAC witness at home is a blessing. We're talking paying $7500 for the birth, as opposed to $20,000.

Given that we write a check for it, I'm happy to be to be writing the smaller check. It's taking major budgeting every month, but is still very doable. And I've wanted a homebirth since my first daughter ended up being a transfer to an OB and ended in a c-section. Then, with our state's laws disallowing direct entry midwives from attending VBACs, I figured I'd always be stuck in hospital or going unattended at home if I wanted something else. This is a great compromise and I'm the first woman in our state in recent years who gets to try this with a licensed midwife at home. Guinea pig time for me

We got to that point too Suzie. We made it public right at 12 weeks but told mostly everyone as soon as we found out

I'm SO exhausted! Went for our run/walk tonight and it wore me out. It always gives me BH after too, which is annoying.

I have about 3 weeks until dh comes home. Still no official date but we are getting there..thank goodness!

WOOHOO! That's great news! Some how I've already had 3 ultrasounds and I'm only 15 weeks! At the first two appointments they were intentional, and at the last one they weren't planning on it. But they couldn't find the heart beat with the little thing they were trying to use so they moved me to the ultrasound room and checked for the heatbeat that way.

I am sooo happy for you! That's amazing! Are you going to be able to do a water birth at home?
I'm aiming for an out of hospital birth too. I have my midwife all lined up! We are paying $5600, after a 10% cut for paying in advance.
People ask me "Why would you pay that when you have insurance and it would only cost you $100 to deliver at the hospital?" Some people just don't get it.
My husband has been working night and day shift for the last week to save up the rest of this money, I feel bad for him and told him we can forget about the midwife so he doesn't have to kill himself like this, but he wouldn't hear of it! I'm so glad we are on the same page with the midwife delivery!

When are you due?
