I feel the most bumps and rolls when I'm sitting at work or laying on the couch, when I get up in the middle of the night to pee she'll also bump me. Today I was at the dentist and when the tech sat me up in the chair I think I had some bits and pieces of her up under my ribs, that hurt alot!

I finally committed to a crib and dresser. That is monumental for me, nothing like waiting til the last minute... :/

So disappointed....stupid pregnancy tests. I'm using wondofo, because they're cheap on Amazon. I plan on throwing them away. My temp is dropping, and still getting negative tests.

I hope your labor goes smoothly, Sharon!

Sharon ~ Still for you!!

Andi ~ Thanks for the offer on the OPKs, but I ordered some before I saw your post.

Krissy ~ Furniture pics?

I'm on cycle day 26 and no egg. It could be the travel that's delayed it, but who really knows. In all my months of charting, I've never seen a cycle like this. I'm just so annoyed today.

Hi all! I am copying and pasting this from my PG post since I am sooooooo tired (and back at home if you can believe it!):

Hi there! Get this....they sent me home, and we are going to try another induction on Thursday!! The cervidil (sp?) they used did absolutely nothing....it was supposed to thin my cervix and that didn't happen. I had it in for over 12 hours too. I'm still only 1 centimeter dilated, and have had absolutely no contractions. I had to promise I'd go in tomorrow for a bio physical profile (ultrasound) and then as long as there is a bed available, I go back to the hospital on Thursday morning for induction part deux. They said the baby is still pretty high up and he (and my body) are just not ready yet. If the induction still doesn't go too well this next time, then I think they'll want to give me a c section (they really don't want me to go too far past my due date because of various health issues I have). Sooooo, I'm going to bed now and hopefully catch up on some sleep that I missed from last night's stay at the hospital. I'll keep you guys posted, thanks for keeping me in your thoughts!

DP-I had some pretty bad allergies in the beginning of this pregnancy. Interestingly enough, I did not have any for the last one, even though I was pregnant at pretty much the same time during the year for both. Even though I tried to manage without it, I finally gave in a few times and took Benedryll (the only thing that my doc would approve---oh yeah, she also said sudafed was okay but I've never taken it before so I decided to stick with benedryll). It just made me so miserable, I know how you feel. I would literally sneeze for an hour straight every morning then I would wind up peeing myself (TMI, I know!) because my bladder still hadn't recovered from delivery #1. This went on almost every morning until suddenly at some point in my second trimester it just stopped. Weird!
Feel better, allergies suck!

Sharon, you poor thing! Apparently baby boy is quite fine and content up in there!

The furniture I picked out was the BRU Babi Italia Hamilton collection. and let me say - which I'm sure you guys already know - BRU do not have their s% together. Every time I go in there they can't ever get anything right! but it's like a monopoly around here because you need stuff and they're the only place in town to get what you need. sigh.

I dunno if it's allergies or what, but every night when it's time for bed I get stuffy and have a hard time sleeping! Stinks!

Lol Sharon- I've peed myself a couple of times too. It's awful! I might have to start wearing a panty liner if this keeps up. Last night I went to bed and it looked like I had pink eye. I've never been like this

Sharon ~ The baby isn’t ready yet. He’ll come at the right time

Krissy ~ I love it!!! Are you doing pink bedding?

Finally got a thermal shift this morning! It's not confirmed yet, but I think we got an egg yesterday. Timing was really good this month The tail end of my TWW we'll be in Disneyland. I'm not sure if roller coasters are a good idea now. Should I be throwing my uterus around when the baby is trying to implant Am I overreacting? What's your take?

Sharon, yep that little guy isnt ready. I am so happy they didnt force it. My SIL was in your position and instead of sending her home, they forced the induction and she had a horrible, horrible birth experience. It was her first too so that was a bummer. Maybe you will progressed more by Thursday!

Carlini - Yep, totally overreacting. The rollercoasters wont be harmful at all at that point. If you are pg it will only be a blob of cells by then and very well protected in your uterus. No worries, enjoy the rides!

Not much going on here. I am 6wks today, just waiting on my doc appt!

Sharon, sounds like your little man is staying put a bit longer! Get lots of rest! Can't wait to see some pics (hint hint).

I am feeling insanely tired! I am wondering if it is all in my head, just a side effect of the cutback in caffeine, or maybe I'm far enough along to feel these symptoms? I could lay my head down on the desk and take a nap.

ETA I'm 4 weeks 5 days, I think.

I had a feeling I was over doing it.

CJ it's probably a combo of different things, but I know when I cut back caffeine I'm really tired for a while.

I'm about 7 weeks along and I've been tired for weeks now! I'm sure it's pregnancy related. This cold I've got 2 weeks after the last one I got is probably also related. My body's too busy growing a baby to worry about fighting off something like a little cold. Does make it hard to get enough sleep though!

So, I am back at Labor and Delivery! At my ultrasound, they found my fluid was really low so they didn't even want me to go home and get my bags. I am having some contractions too on my own w/o pitocin. Have the cervidil in right now, it should come out by 7 am or so.

Looks like there will be a birthday today! I was also really congested during my pregnancy. I ate dairy though and that always gives me a stuffy nose. I also had a terrible cold. My ody was so weak from making a baby, I had nothing left over to fight a cold.

Pretty bad cramping last night whenever I got up to do something. Felt like my uterus was tightening and hardening. It would subside quickly and went away completely whenever I layed down.

Trying to take it easy today, but I'm supposed to work the garden at work today. Well when I went to bed they said our rain storm wouldn't start til later in the day and I was bummed because rain would give me an easy out from the garden.
I work up at 5am to sprinkles and thunder! WOOHOO! keep it coming!

Hi all....probably my last post for awhile....they did a dose of cytotec and were going to do another when they discovered I made some progress finally (had dilated to a 3!) So, I am now on pitocin and contractions are about 3 minutes apart....and they will probably break my water soon which means there is no going back! I'm getting a bit uncomfortable so will probably request epidural soon. Thanks for 'helping' me through this, ladies!!
