Mommies to be check in

Recommended Posts

Hey girls,

Well I had my appointment yesterday. They actually had me come in early cuz I wasnt feeling good. They did the stress test AGAIN. They do it every week. She is at the point she doesnt like to be tested anymore. She moves away from the monitor. Oh my little princess. Well doc didnt like that her heart rate wasnt getting up so he zapped her. Let me tell you that really pissed her off.

Then they took blood to make sure my white count was ok and my sugars are ok. Thought maybe that was why i didnt feel good. But it all came back okay.

Then he checked me to see if I was dilating. He said I was only at a one. But to me at least it something. When I got home I was bledding a little and later that night I lost my plug. I never did that with my daughter so that was new for me. So I guess we will see what happens from here.

 

As far as the strollers...I have the one that comes with the car seat and an umbrella stroller. Hubby wants the jeep stroller to take her out in the woods, but Im not a big fan of that right now.

 

I dont get the leg craps I get the reastless legs. It makes me crazy. It feels like the creepy crawlies...

 

Hope everyone is doing good.

Kelly- Sorry to hear you're not feeling well, that's no fun..

 

Mrs Martin- I used to get leg cramps soooo bad! Not fun at all, I'd do the same thing to FI. Do you drink much soda? My doctor told me that soda can cause them, I don't drink a lot of it at all but he also suggested drinking more milk. So I started drinking a lot more milk and rarely get them now. Also, sleeping on your back can cause them too but I doubt at this point you can lay on your back...I definitely haven't been able to for quite awhile now!

 

Are any of you at all concerned with all the guests that will be stopping by with this now pandemic they've declared? They've got some pretty bad outbreaks of it fairly close to where I live so I'm a little bit concerned...Would it be horribly rude of me, when the time does come, to post a note on my door asking anyone with any possible symptoms to come back? I probably sound like a crazy lady, but our public health nurse was pretty stern in prenatal class to even ask people with the common cold not to come..How do you not sound like a bag/crazy lady when it comes to something like that?

Summer, I dont think it sounds crazy at all. I dont let alot of people around my new babies. And i dont plan on starting now. I went and stocked up on germ x also. I dont let anyone touch them without using it first. And I am a serious freak when it come to strangers in public. Why do people feel the need to touch someone elses baby. Strange.

Kelly - I am new to this whole pregnancy thing, what does it mean that you lost your plug? Your water broke? Don't laugh at me if I am way off, I have no clue!

Yeah, I was wondering about the plug too. I think it's the plug that closes off the uterus? Someone told me you have the baby within days of losing the plug. Is that true? Either way, progress is exciting and hopefully you feel better soon Kelly!

Andrea, you are right the plug closes it off and helps protect from germs getting in there. Lots of women do go into labor soon after losing that however, I lost mine about three weeks ago and have since had my membranes scraped by the doctor in hopes that might help bring on labor...But she's a stubborn one sad.gif

 

Kelly- Thanks for the input, that makes me feel a lot better! I live in a small town and I know we're going to have probably every person we've ever waved at either stopping by or else smothering us when we're out in public, so I'm really quite nervous.

the mucus plug starts forming right after your body realizes it is prego. It falls out before you go into labor. Some girls I have heard don't realize they lose theirs because it happens while they are going to the bathroom. The Dr's told my friend to always check before you flush lol

Calia- Thanks for the info. I actually did see a light-weight stroller from MacLaren @ BRU, but it was over $200 and I thought it was too much. However, I checked online yesterday and they seem to have another MacLaren light weight for less $$. I'm going to check to see if they have it at the store so I can try it out in person. I registered for one from Chicco and it seemed to be just fine for my height.

 

Kelly- This may sound like a stupid question considering I'm a few weeks away from having a baby and I should know this by now, but what does the plug look like? Is it obvious when it falls out? I also heard some women lose it gradually, not all at once. Is that true? I know what it is, I'm just not sure I would be able to identify it considering you tend to discharge a lot when pregnant.

I can tell by the hiccups, and I have a heart listener and the only place that I can hear her heartbeat is at the top of my stomach.

I've tried many position and she isn't budging. I'm kinda just giving up on turning her because she's getting bigger as the weeks go by and my doc told me there is really only a 10% chance she will turn. So I may just settle with the c-section on the 29th. censored.gif

You may still have some time to turn your LO.

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
