I have a question.  Have any of your doctors recommended you take the TDAP vaccine.  My daughter's doctor recommended she take it as well as grandparents.  Your thoughts??

My OB just advised me of this. I was told it gives baby a 90% immunity against whopping cough if given between 28-36 weeks. We have had more and more cases of WC here in Alberta so I think I am going to get it.

Awwww Rebecca,

 

I am sorry you are feeling anxious.  My guess is your baby is growing and there is not as much room.   Why don't you call your doctor and express your concerns?  Maybe the doctor will suggest an ultrasound or something to put your mind at ease.

I got this from my OB.

 

Movement is different the last couple weeks for me but I wouldn't say less frequent. Do you have a birthing unit close to you? In Red Deer we can just walk in and get baby checked if we feel something is wrong.

I had something similar to this where she wasnt really that active for 3 days straight and her movements were very weak. After lots of worrying she picked right back up. My doctor said it is normal for them to be like this and that as long as I feel her move throughout the day, even if its faint, its normal. I would make an appointment to go in and get a quick check, but I am sure everything is fine.

I saw my OB today - he actually picked up after 3 days of very little movement - OB said his head is down and he is perfect size!

 

She re-assured me - but said if I ever felt worried to go to labour and delivery to have him checked!  As of right now everything is perfect!

 

Thanks for the messages!

Hi all wavey.gif My blood pressure started to creep up last week. I started swelling in my ankles and feet and have developed carpal tunnel. My OB sent me for preeclampsia bloodwork and urine test and thankfully that was all good.  I had an NST and blood pressure monitoring on Friday and will again this Thursday as well as an u/s. I developed preeclampsia around 36 weeeks in my last pregnancy so I will be monitored closely. How is every feeling?

Odessa, so glad you are ok and being monitored carefully.  My daughter had her 3D ultra sound today and for $12.95 my husband and I got to watch it streaming.  Wow!  She is 30 weeks, due May 27.  Saw all 10 fingers and toes and lots of hair. haha.  Said she was 47% for weight and should weigh about 7 1/2 lbs. at birth.  Technology is amazing.

 

We are having a big family and friends baby shower this weekend, so I am busy making favors, light pink nail polish and small hand sanitizers in cute baggies tied with pink ribbon.  Wish I could post a picture.

 

I have a question.  What is one item you think is a must for a new baby?  There are so many out there.

 

Let us hear from all of you.

Odessa - hoping that this pregnancy is better than the last!

 

NanaDeb - I've watched a lot of youtube videos on "must haves" for baby - while a lot of them differ - one thing they seemed to praise was the Fisher Price Rock n Play" - we purchased ours at indigo.ca - a lot of carriers were featured - everyone seemed to love aden and anias blankets, sleep sacs

 

AFM - I have a serious case of the feels these days it can go from angry to thankfulness to whatever...today I am frustrated that our ultrasound date is finally here and Josh has a cold - so he isn't going - so I am going alone. I have an apt at 11am, then my ultrasound at 2pm (which parking will be impossible - our last few times at the hospital Josh had to drop me off and circle until someone left) then an offsite staff event from 3-5 and pre-natal at 6- did I mention I drive an hour to work and back - I am just exhausted and feel a bit alone these days.  All prospects of a family/friends baby shower have fizzled...I just feel like I am the only one excited for this baby!  Lord knows when I catch Josh's cold - life and appointments will still have to go on...

Odessa – Glad the docs are going to start monitoring you closely. FX your blood pressure stays good.

 

NanaDeb – that sounds cute. We are not doing a baby shower this time around. The girls are so close in age that we have everything we need. At our 1st baby shower we gave out body scrubbers with notes attached that said “From our shower to yours – Thank you” People really liked them and they were not expensive. 

 

https://www.etsy.com...=sr_gallery-1-3

 

Lets us know how the shower goes. I wish we could see pictures.

 

RebeccaG – Everything will work out. You are allowed mood swings when pregnant. Try not to be to bummed. You are carrying a little miracle and at the end of the day…. That’s all that matters. Keep your head up and vent here as much as you need. We understand!!!

Hello everyone

 

Sorry for being MIA, I've just been so sick.  Still nauseous and vomiting and still on diclectin, maxeran, ranitidine, and ondansotron at 31 weeks.  I can now add high blood pressure, anemia (for which I'm getting iron infusions), and gestational diabetes.  I just found out about the diabetes 2 weeks ago and have been monitoring my blood levels for the last week - as of yesterday I've been put on insulin as there is nothing more I can do diet wise.  After 1 day of 2 doses of insulin today my blood levels went even higher - highest they've been since I've started monitoring.  My body just does not like being pregnant :(

 

Hope everyone is doing well.

Nope - don't know gender - it'll be a suprise :)

Yesterday my doctor said she was pleasantly suprised I'm still pregnant - she thought I would have had baby by now bcse of all the issues I've been having (last pregnancy DS was born at 32 weeks).  But she also mentioned if I make it to May that I would be having a c-section no later than 37 weeks.

UGH, Sami99, I am so sorry this has been so rough! Sounds like you're 6 weeks away, at the longest. Thinking of you over these next weeks. Hoping having this baby will finally give you some relief! He/she is really making you work for it...

 

On that note, I can't believe we're talking in terms of single digit weeks! Technically, I still have 10, but it's still hard to believe.

 

The in-laws visited us this week in Seattle, coming from Iowa. First time they saw us pregnant, and I wasn't sure how the long weekend would go. I have wonderful in-laws, but still in-laws, and they do all sorts of things that annoy the heck out of me (and make me feel like an awful person saying this). I was a little worried I would be resentful that my parents aren't here to be a part of all this, and I was. My mom was the ultimate grandma to all babies, even though she had no grandkids while she was alive, and my dad wanted nothing more than for my husband and I to have kids. Still, lucky to have the in-laws :)

 

Sami99 — thinking about you in the coming weeks.

Rebecca — hope you're feeling better about everything this week. I have my down days, for sure.

Sarah_Someday - I can't  imagine not having my mom around - sending you strength!  Hope that you were still able to enjoy some time with the inlaws.

 

My MIL doesn't like our boys name Samuel - but we've had it for 5 years and while she is consistent in suggesting we change it, we are not budging.

 

As a follow up to my last post - Josh called me and decided to come in for the ultrasound and prenatal class...all I had to do was type and he proved me wrong :-) - they did a 3d ultrasound which was a surprise and melted our hearts - our 3 pound little guy with chubby cheeks and luscious lips!!  I am feeling the best I have over the whole pregnancy - can't believe in just 8 weeks we will have our little man in our arms!!

 

It's been amazing hearing your stories - and having a place to come and share and vent!

I had a 32 week ultrasound last week and had my follow up with my OB today. Apparently my baby is fairly big for her gestation, she is in the 95th percentile at 5 lbs. My fundal height has been measuring around 3 weeks ahead for awhile. The NST and my blood pressure has been good this last week smile.png So as long as my blood pressure stays good I have an induction date of April 25th, I will be 37 weeks.

Looks like my induction date is May 18th - getting nervous/excited!!!!

 

My Dr said that all IVF babies are induced early - is everyone going early?

My doctor is going to let me go into labor naturally. He never mentioned anything about being induced. Im starting to feel like the next 6 weeks for me are going to be really long. Lol. I feel huge.
