Mommies to be check in

yeah, working out didn't work out so well for me either. I was really sick through 22 weeks and if I walked or did the eliptical for even 20 minutes I'd vomit. So... yeah, that stopped. Now that I feel better (or can at least control the vomitting) it's REALLY hard to get back into it. I'm extremely winded after just walking five feet! It's ridiculous what carrying around an extra 30 pounds will do to you! Plus, you are already breathing twice as hard to produce the extra oxygen needed for the baby... so if you aren't working out from the start, it's just too much.

 

So, just keep going with your routine and hopefully you'll be one of the lucky ones who isn't sick or told they can't do any activity until 12 weeks and you'll be good to go!

Hey ladies...I just needed to come and vent. I'm so upset...but also so happy I only have 3 weeks go til my due date. I got put on bed rest today sad.gif I was supposed to go for my regular weekly check up tomorrow but had extremely swollen feet this morning and didn't think that was normal that early in the morning so got in today and my blood pressure is up quite a bit from last week but my urine is still clear. So I have to go back in on Friday to make sure it's all still under control. He's a bit worried about toxemia but thinks that more likely I could be going into labour sooner than we think. Apparently sometimes before labour your blood pressure goes up and swell more but urine stays clear....So hopefully that's what's going on and I don't develop toxemia!

 

Kelly good luck at your ultrasound! Sorry to hear you're having trouble controlling your numbers, that is not fun!

I just wanted to let you know Summer, that I had toxemia at the end of my pregnancy with Katie. She was born on time (well four days before the due date), and apart from being undernourished she was fine. She was followed by a pediatrician for a few months to keep a check on her weight. Trust me, she's doing just fine at 25 this year :)

 

Follow the doctors instructions. Take it easy and try not to stress about things!

 

Good luck :)

Summer, no worries just listen to what they say. I got induced a week before my due date and she was fine 8 lbs 2 oz and 21 inches. So Im glad they took her then I cant imagine if she got any bigger.

 

And guess what I just got home fromt the doc and my blood pressure is up. 122 over 88. So I have been told to behave myself. He says he wants me to atleast get to 37 weeks. I have to go and have an u/s on monday and an office visit on Thursday. Oh the fun begins...

Congrats Bisha, Gavin is adorable!!!!!

 

Hey ladies!!!!! Hope everybody and their LO's are doing well. I've been so busy since I stopped working last week. It's like I've been doing something everyday. But my son is loving it, he gets to hang with mommy all day.

I had my babyshower last sunday and we got everything we needed. I'll post pics when I upload them on my computer. We actually had to take a couple of things back because we got duplicates. So we are all set, and we didn't even buy anything except my breast pads and cream. Of course I wanted to buy some clothes but she has soooooo much I didn't want to waste money.

I went for my appt the other day and realized she is now in a breech position, she was head down 2 weeks ago so she managed to turn. I'm a little bummed so I'm doing whatever I can to turn her. If she's still breech by my next appt they will discuss my options. In other words, the easiest thing for them to do would be a c-section.

Well that's the latest on me.

Summer- How have you been feeling so far? Sorry to hear that you were put on bed rest. But, like someone else stated, take advantage and just enjoy doing nothing because you will not have that luxury when the baby comes! Good luck!

 

Kelly- Have you been behaving (as your doc put it) so your blood pressure won't rise again?!

 

Angel- congrats on getting everything at your baby shower; that must have been a relief for you! Can't wait to see pics!!

 

I have my first baby shower tomorrow and I'm really excited!! It's being hosted by my DH's side of the family and then 2 weeks later my mom is hosting one for me for our side of the family/friends. Then I have another one in July hosted by my friend at work. We don't have anything (besides a few onsies and a Halloween costume) for the baby yet, so anything is a blessing at this point!! Besides that, I'm feeling very well! Just starting to get some minor swelling in the feet/ankles by the end of the day, but nothing else going on.

 

How are the rest of the ladies feeling?!

    • 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?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
