Kelly- Glad to hear your results came back negative!

 

I just got back from doing my glucose-tolerance screening and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I kept hearing horror stories about the orange drink, so I was expecting the worse. I can see why someone without a sweet tooth would hate it, but I didn't think it was that bad (not that I would want to drink again though); it's just very sugary. The waiting around was the worse part for me. I was falling asleep the last hour but my baby's kicking would wake me up. I'm at work now and I could feel myself going down fast. I have no energy and I'm starting to regret coming in at all after taking that test....

I have my glucose test on Friday... I'm NOT looking forward to that!! I too have the ice cream/smores/chocolate/anything bad for me needs right now, so being told I can't have it will really suck! Hopefully all is good though!!

Babies are soo exciting..Congrats to all you expecting and new moms! I'm 33 weeks now and starting to get antsy for this little bambino to get here already! I waddle, and get beat up quite regularly haha. We get to go for our last ultrasound within the next couple of weeks. We tried finding out at our 20 week scan what baby is, she could only GUESS that it's a girl..So I couldn't contain myself and bought a few girly dresses and onsies but for the most part we're still not sure, and not sure if we'll ask now or just wait for the surprise at the birth..

I love all the baby bump pictures! I only have taken a few, wish I'd done the monthly pictures like a lot of people do! This one is one from when we had our engagement pictures done, our photographer offered to take a few belly shots and I'm so thankful she did, I love them. We got this one made into a big plaque to hang in our baby room, I love it!

30 weeks- I should take an updated one, I've already dropped! Feels so much different!

 

Is anyone having trouble with PGP (Pelvic Gridle Pain)? My hips are unbelievably sore! If anyone has any good remedies I'd greatly appreciate any advice!!! I take lots of baths which seem to help and try not to aggrivate it by sitting on the couch a lot or bending too much...

Hi everyone, well what a week it has been. I woke up around 2 am on Thurs. morning with bad back pain and lower ab cramping. It went away after 45 min it came back at 3:30 again for 45 min and returned yet again at 4:15 and we went to the hospital. I was vomiting everytime the pain returned, it was unbelievable pain. It turns out I have kidney stones censored.gif I have never experienced pain like this. I was sent home and then admitted me on Friday and I returned home on Sunday. They still have not passed and I am miserable. I am drinking tons of water, taking baths, using a heating pad and trying to not take the pain pills, because of the baby. Has anyone else had kidney stones, and how long did they take to pass? I am in pain and not happy. But, on a postive side the baby is great and kicking up a storm and I feel very connected to her since we get so much quiet time together.

GeminiLibra- Sorry to hear about the kidney stones. That sounds so painful! My aunt found out she had kidney stones when she was 33 weeks pregnant. She described the pain as you did and she couldn't take medication either. It just had to pass and luckly her stone passed within 3 days. Have you passed yours yet? Hang in there!!

 

Summer- Cute baby bump pics, thanks for sharing! No, I haven't had PGP yet and it doesn't sound like much fun. Hope you feel better and it goes away soon!

kidney stones totally suck!!!! I had one two yrs ago. I had to have them broke up to get it out. It was too big. My uroligist tells me to drink lemonade. With real lemons. Not countrytime. Something in the acid of the lemon breaks it down. Maybe that will help.

 

Summer, pics are so cute.

 

Well I just got back from my doctor appointment. I failed my diabeties test. Not cool. I have to go to the diabetic doctor on friday, he wants me to test 4 times a day for 2 weeks. Then he will reavaluate things. He said I didnt completely fail but I got a "D". LOL.

 

He also said we will probably see her between july 4th and 10th.

Hello ladies... I've been totally AWOL from BDW (and busy on FertilityFriend), but I just got my BFP and wanted to share!!! We've been trying for 9 months, so while I'm totally excited, we're also feeling a bit cautious about it.

 

Anyhoo - just wanted to pop in and say hello!

If you have any questions please feel free to PM me, I have had gd since week 6. I am in a good routine now and pretty much have it under control. My diabetes dr told me she wished all patients were like me. Ah...geez!

yari your too cute. How did they know at 6 weeks? He said that I didnt completely fail I just got a "D" so he wants me to eat normal for 2 weeks and test and we will go from there. But I will definetly keep you in mind if he starts cracking the whip.

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
