    Thanks, Julie. I hope I do not have a huge baby!!

    Karma - that's great news. I bet it felt good to go ahead and take the test for your peace of mind.

    I just called the doctors office to ask for results, but the nurse was busy and I had to leave a message. She called at 2pm last time with bad news, so I'm hoping since she hasn't called - I may be in the clear. Fingers crossed!

    What week is officially the 3rd trimester?

      Yeah, I like to think no news is good news. My doc got the results yesterday but just called this morning (since it was negative).

      27 weeks is considered 3rd trimester! You're almost there too!

        o.k., I had another stupid question, but you would be so proud - - I looked it up myself.
        So you have to finish the 27th week, then week 28 is the 3rd trimester. Am I reading that right?

          Mo - I'm so sorry that things are still so bad for you. Have you been feeling any better since you got home from the hospital?

          Karma - I'm glad to hear the test was negative.

          Lisa - Keep us updated on your results.


          I'm so glad that I'm almost to the 2nd trimester. I've had a relatively easy 1st trimester, but it will just ease my mind to be past the riskiest stage of the pregnancy. Only 1 more week to go!

            Woo Hoo Lizz. That was what I was most excited to get out of. I mean there's risk the entire time, but the 1st trimester is the scariest.

                Yay, Lisa! I am so happy for you! I had a feeling everything was going to be fine!

                Different books/websites say different things. As far as I know and what my doc goes by is that once you hit 27 weeks you are in the 3rd trimester.

                  Good news, Karma and Lisa!

                  I got my results back and I am negative too! My yeast culture also came back negative, so that lowers the babies chance of getting meningitis or jaundice. Yay!

                  But.....I have been having a heck of a time catching my breath. I am not gasping or anything, just not able to catch a full breath of air. I called my doc and the nurse said that it is probably just the baby pushing up on my diaphram. I figured it was, but I thought it was too early for that?

                  Question, what do Braxton Hicks feel like? I know like contractions, but can someone explain it to me that has actually felt them?

                    I have been having them for a while. They feel different at different times. Sometimes it just feels like a tightening or cramping pain in my belly sometimes at the bottom, sometimes in the middle. And sometimes it feels like I have to run to the bathroom, like I have diarrhea pains and I need to go really badly, but then I get there and nothing, but still the pain. My doctor said both of these pains are BH, not sure why they are different at different times, but that is how I feel them.

                    That is great news Lisa that it was negative. I had a feeling that would be the result, but I am glad to know that you don't have to worry about it.

                      Martha - For me the BH feel uncomfortable but not painful. My whole stomach tightens up and gets hard as a rock. Sometimes they take my breath away and I have to take deep breaths. I don't remember them at all with my first pregnancy, but this time they are happening at least a few times a day.
