Hi ladies! How's everyone spending their long weekend?
Maryz---I had little waves of nausea even before the BT to confirm BFP, but MS wasn't really bad for me at all both pregnancies, I think I only ever vomitted once each. However I was on Prednisone for the first 10 weeks, and it has antiemetic effects. I had the cramps in most of my BFPs, it's worse if the hormone levels were high (ie. slightly overstimmed). This time I felt like I've been punched in the lower abdomen the whole time up till about 13-14 weeks. I get the low cramps as well 30mins after using the progesterone. They say once you see a heartbeat the stats are really good for a take home baby.
Marzi--- How are you? I'm glad I finished work, as I think I'm expanding by the minute, it's getting very difficult to get around now. My right hand is almost always numb now from carpal tunnel syndrome, the cankles don't hurt, I just can't fit into my shoes anymore. Beside the constipation and haemorrhoids , there's the round ligament pains if I walk more than 10 minutes or if I walk too fast. LOL! You now regret asking how I'm feeling?
AFM---We're on the home stretch! I've never believed it'll ever be my turn. The nursery is all set up, even the bassinet and cot is made. The baby's hospital bag is packed, mine is half packed. We got the car seat yesterday. Missy is still breech, I'm starting to wonder if my fibroids are preventing her from turning. She was head down at 29 weeks but has since turned breech, she tried to flip two nights ago, (I felt her kicking my stomach instead of bladder) but didn't stay down. Anyway, I'm booked for elective C/S. My ob wanted me to have one, one of her main reason was this is such a "precious" pregnancy after what we've been through to get here, she wanted a controlled environment. She also worried about my multiple fibroids obstructing labour. Now it seems bub is breech as well. I didn't need a lot of convincing to go elective CS either LOL! DH is using the holiday to fix up all the stuff he's put off doing for months and years. He said he's "nesting". ROFL! Talk about being a drama queen!
