Kelly- I'm glad to hear your placenta has shifted; that's great news! Are you still having any of those pains you were getting before?

 

Jenn- Good luck on Friday!

 

As for me, I haven't had another bad episode again with the irregular heat beat (just short episodes). Just to be on the safe side my doc will be doing an EKG on me this week. But other than that my little boy is good and just moving around inside of me! He has started waking me up between 2:00-4:00am with his kicking and moving. I just sit there in bed feeling my stomach because I get so excited about feeling him move!

 

I hope everyone else is doing well!!

I love feeling my baby move too! I just love it. I can sit there and stare at it for hours (well, if it'd kick for hours). It's just so amazing to me!! Plus, since it's still pretty little and the kicks are really low, it doesn't hurt yet! :)

hey ladies.. no i'm not preggo! i just have a question. :)

 

i'm going out to lunch tomorrow with a good friend of mine who i don't get to see very often because she lives far away. anyway, she's preggo and this is the first time i'm seeing her since she found out. i'd like to get her a small little gift.. i don't really know what but just a congratulations type thing. did any of your friends/family buy you something small and cute and maybe sentimental when you told everyone you were expecting? or is something practical a better idea? she's not finding out the sex so it should be gender neutral, if that matters and also, she hasn't had her shower yet so i'll buy her a bigger gift later. i'm just looking for something small.

 

tia!

Oooo Katrina you tricked me wink.gif! I saw your name and thought you were pg! When I first found out I was pg we decided not to buy anything baby until after the first trimester. A few days later in the mail I received a congratulations package from my cousin's family with the most adorable little onesie! I had no idea something like this would impact us the way it did. Suddenly the pregnancy was way more real and we could picture a little baby fitting into it! It made me cry!

Trisha- I know exactly how you feel about the kicking- I'm enjoying them right now because I know later they will begin to hurt and feel uncomfortable!

 

Katrina- That's really nice of you for wanting to get her a gift! Do you know how far along your friend is? The reason I ask is if she's still pretty early, she may not have as many pregnancy books as someone who was probably later in her pregnancy. I received tons of books in the beginning, which I didn't think I would read and I actually did end up reading them all. I received this one in particular that showed 3D pics of the baby week to week and I loved it. I also received baby basics like body suits, socks, hats, etc. The only out-of-ordinary thing I received was a baby piggy bank from my parents with some $$ already inside. I thought that was cute and unique.

katrina- My mom brought me over a cute bag with pickles, a baby book and a few other cute little things. The pickles cracked me up. That is very nice of you to think of her and I am sure anything you get her will be great!

 

 

 

Ok girls, I am having breakout city going on! It is horrible. My face, my shoulders, my chest WTF?! I look hideous. I am going to make an appt with my dermatologist to see what he can do that will still be safe for the baby.

Wow, I have a lot of catching up to do! :) LOL

 

Kelly - Great news about the placenta! I know I was happy to find out mine shifted too :)

 

Jenn - how exciting about Friday! Hope your baby spreads the legs nice and wide for you! Good luck! Can't wait to hear who you're having!

 

GeminiLibra - can't agree with you more about how fast it's going! At first, it seems that every week couldn't come any sooner and now, it just feels like they're flying by toooo fast!

 

Mrs. Martin - glad to hear you're feeling better!

 

katrina - it's so nice to hear that you want to get your friend something. I think everything the other ladies suggested is great! I guess it's not too customary in my culture so the only "gift" I got was maternity clothes from my SIL so maybe something like a gift card to motherhood maternity!?

 

Kat - I'm right there with you! I actually broke out right after getting off the pill last spring. It got 10x worse when I got pregnant, came down a little during the second trimester and now, it's back to how it was during the first! I feel like I'm 15 again and I've been going through tons and tons of concealer! I just hope that it gets better after giving birth. I haven't found anything that helps completely so, maybe you'll have better luck! Let us know how it goes at the derm for you :)

 

As far as movement goes; I can't say it's uncomfortable for me but the days when he's really really active, I get really really tired! Otherwise, I love feeling him too and find myself watching my stomach move around from time to time. Just staring at it instead of working! :) LOL

 

I actually have some baby prep progress to report! We got the stroller yesterday!!!! Sooooo excited that we wound up playing with it for like 2 hours! Taking it apart and trying on all the different attachemnts! It's even cooler than I remember it being when we first saw it at the store :) The nursery is actually moving along as well! My dad came over yesterday and picked up the last of the furniture we wanted to get out of there so the only thing that's left is for me to find a new home for all the junk that's in there right now and for hubby to paint. He promised to have that done by the end of the week!!!!! Woo Hoo!!! Our crib actually came in and is currently at the store (we did the walmart site to store thing) waiting for us to pick it up and the dresser should be there shortly so it's even possible that we will have the furniture set up before the week's end!

Kat- Sorry you are breaking out so much! I know it's common during pregnancy for skin to react funny. Good luck with the derm and I hope he/she is able to help you. I haven't broken out, but my face has become very red in certain spots and it gets irritated easily. If I put cream on my face, it looks as if I have a sunburn because it gets so red.

 

Bisha- I'm glad you started working on the nursery and you got your stroller! Can you believe you are going to have a baby in less than 2 months?! Time does really fly by....

 

Ladies- we need to share our progress with belly pics!! I'm not one to talk since I haven't posted any, but I will take an updated pic tonight and post what I have ASAP!

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
