Hello ladies. Hope everyone is doing well. I am doing fine. Waiting to start my job.
SConcrete Angel - I know the cabin fever oh too well!! I am a military spouse who has a professional job. I have never in my life been unemployed until we were transferred to this little ole country town we are in now because my hubby is in the Army. This town has little to no jobs and to get a job, you must drive about 45-60 minutes away. I finally got a job at the local hosp. and am awaiting to start my first official day. I have done my orientation already and that felt great!! I can't wait to get out of the house too. People ask me if I'll be a stay-at-home mommy... I say "he* no." I am a working mom. There's a lady in my neighborhood with 2 small kids and she walks them regularly in their stroller just to get out the house. Everytime I talk to her, she sounds depressed for being at home all day with her kids. I don't want to be like that. It seems nowadays it's not cool to work while your kids are in daycare especially when they are newborn or young. People look at me funny when I tell them I work. I will be working part time even though working full time would only require 1 more shift per week but I'll enjoy the slight break I'll get. If I get bored, I have the option of full time.
I do water aerobics daily and I love it. It makes my body feel great. I hate to see the weekend come because when I don't attend, my legs, back, and hips hurt!! I really enjoy it. Everyone in the class is talking about the weight they're losing from the class. Me, I think the class helps me maintain my weight so I don't balloon out like a blimp.
How much weight has everyone gained? I've gained 15#. I think that is on target considering I was already a plus sized woman (at 167#) for my pre-pregnancy weight. Isn't that something, I don't consider 167# to be al that fat but I guess since I'm 5 feet tall, I look a little stocky
I don't know what's happened to our blog... it looks like everyone has disappeared except for the 3 of us. Oh well, I'll keep blogging anyway. Hey, has anyone elses's belly gotten tight. It is like I can feel my belly literally growing at times. When I did some reading, it seems they are Braxton Hicks contractions and round ligament pain. Oh well, it doesn't last long... maybe a few hours or so and it is not a periodic pain like labor.. it's more like I've just done crunches. Well ladies, until the next time... take care and happy pregnancies.
Hello ladies! How is everyone doing these days?? We had a echo-gram on babys heart with a pediatric cardiologist as I have an older son who was born with two holes in his heart and I am happy to report that this baby's heart is absolutely wonderful - no problems! So thats a relief! Its amazing the stuff they can do while baby is in the womb! Anybody feeling extremely huge these days? I have on a regular pair of my pants which are size 7 buttoned below my belly but then there is this huge belly on top of them!lol No hiding it anymore! My boss who is gone most of the winter months came back this past week and I finally told him I was pg and he's like your due in 3 months?!?! lol YEP!! Have a great weekend!
Okay ladies its time for a good laugh

Hi June mommy's! What happened to our board?? We need to jump back on and start posting! Everything is going good here, getting bigger and bigger everyday! 8 weeks and counting until we have the baby and find out if we will have a son or daughter! Its been so hard not finding out when I have had so many ultrasounds but it was our decision! Plus shopping has been hard, even picking out a stroller/carseat! UGH!
It's good to see that someone is still on here. I hope everyone is doing OK. I am doing well except for the sciatica flare-ups and now the ankle/feet swelling. It pretty much resolves each night as I sleep with my feet propped up. The baby moves regularly and now I can distinguish his butt from his head when he seems to nearly poke out my belly at times. I wish I had a see-thru belly so I could see what he's doing at times. He be fumbling around my bladder area and that does not feel so good. But, no much longer... wow, can you guys believe we only have 4 more weeks to go? I've only gained 13# and everyone tells me I am not that big. That makes me feel self-conscious when I go to a baby store and the store employee asks, "so, who are you shopping for." I want to tell her "Damn, don't I look pregnant." I sure feel pregnant but I have not gained much weight. I am full after eating 3 bites of food but I force feed myself and eat about 6 times a day just to keep the calories in me. I am not sick or anything and all my tests are normal except I'm anemic again. I work 12 hour shifts so I am walking a lot. My pedometer told me I walked about 7000 steps on one shift last week. Maybe that plus my prior water aerobics is preventing me from gaining too much weight. At least i am not an obese monster that's gained like 100 pounds like some women do. Oh well, ladies please keep me posted and I'm glad to read the posts from the 2 others that keep this blog going. Maybe the others will get back on board.
Hello again!!!!!!! I had another ultrasound on Wed and the baby weighs 3 lbs 13 oz. give or take 5 oz. either way! Its so exciting knowing that the baby is already that big and not too much longer!!!!!!!!!!!! The hardest part is going into these ultrasounds knowing that the tech person knows the sex and I dont want to know since I've waited this long! How is all of the June mommies feeling?
he Everyone, I hope you are all enjoying your pregnacy. I have Xavier William on Friday he was 4lbs 8 oz and 17 inches. I had pre eclampsia and have been in and out of the hospital the last 2 monthes and on bed rest for what seems like for ever. He is tiny but doing a lot better than they thought he would. I hope to be on more now that I'm allowed to sit up and move. He will be here for atleast 2-4 weeks, but thats ok. Talk Soon shannon
Shannon - congrats on your lil' boy! Wow, how early was he?? He still was pretty good size!! Enjoy not being on bed rest any longer and snuggle with that new lil guy! Our board has been kinda dead so it was nice to hear from someone! Take care! Sandy
Congrats on your new little guy. I wish you all of the best.
How are all of the other momma's doing? Well today is my last day of work. Maternity leave beginns. I have had no complaints about being pregnant up until now. Swollen feet. ugh...My feet hurt so bad. Gained 23 pounds. All belly so I did very well with this pregnancy compared to my daughter. My daughter is starting to get a little jealous. She will be 7 in July and now that she is having a brother, she is starting to act up, which I was expecting. Due June 3rd. Hope all of the other mommies are doing well.
Hey ladies. Glad to see everyone doing well. I guess one by one, we will be delivering. I see we already have 1 that's done so early but at least the baby's doing pretty well. I am growing! All belly though. I think I've only gained 15-17 pounds so far. My ankles stay swollen so I guess I'm normal like everyone else. My last day at work is next Thursday. My body is slowing down and I can't move as fast as I used to. The baby is low right down on my bladder. I work in the ER and do 12 hour shifts; It's very fast pace so the time passes fast, however I'm anemic again and my energy level is going to the pits. We are about to get the nursery done. We put together the crib yesterday. Til the next time ladies... ttyl.
