I'll keep my fingers crossed for your doctor's appointment to go well. Keep us posted.
Thanks MayMommy. I will let you know. I am working 1/2 day today. Nurse told me not to go in if I was swollen but I figure I can make it 1/2 day plus I want the dr to see what a full day can do to my feet. They are already swollen, but I am going to push through. Its really nice to have ppl listen and understand...Thanks to you all!
I can totally understand why you want to work the 1/2 day - the last thing you want is to go in after resting your feet and have the doctor tell you that everything is fine because s/he isn't seeing you after you've been on your feet for an extended period of time!
Hey, I'm liz nice to see all you guys here. I'm due may 29th with my third baby. I already have two girls at home, hannah(5), and madalynne(14m). We are having another baby girl. This one was a suprise (my dd was only 8 months and I was still nursing when I got pregnant). I'm excited but a little scared about having the two so close together. Any suggestions?

Our families are sooo excited for her to get here, and so are we. She has been kicking up a storm latley letting us know she is getting ready. I am nervous of the whole birth issue. I am planning on going natural due to bad experiences with needles(had a spinal one time and my blood pressure dropped drastically and I was out of it for a week) My husband and I have been having a blast going to our childbirth classes and the tour of the hospital helped ease our worries a little. 13 weeks to go and lol my hubby is already beginning to pack my hospital bag!!

A few tips she gave me is to always sleep with a pillow between my legs and my ankles(body pillow works) and to not cross my legs as much as possible and to always make sure when you are sitting or driving that your pelvis bone is straight that you aren't leaning on one side more than the other...That one really made me realize when I was driving i was putting alot of pressure on my right hip..No wonders I'd get out of my car to find i couldn't walk!Anyways hope these tips help I hope everyone continues too post and have happy healthy pregnancies!
Hey everyone! I am sooo pooped latley, seems I can't find enough energy to even do the dishes much less clean the whole house! I guess I wore my self out the other day finishing up the babies room! Does anyone else find themselves out of energy at this time of their pregancies? I am also a lot crankier with the hubby, everything he says or does just irritates me and I go off on him, I feel soo bad about it later and he takes me snappin at him very personally! He just dosen't get the whole mood swings being a first time dad. Any one else cranky or just me? Also with this lil one kicking me I am also not getting any sleep. I am constantly worrying about what I did in the past before I found out I was pregnant(horseback riding accidents, x-rays, ect), wondering if I am doing everything correctly right now, and if I am going to be a good mother! I am also tired of being useless, I can't help any projects my mother is doing(remolding her house) But don't get me wrong I am ready to have this baby in my arms for both my hubby and me to enjoy! Well off to try to fall asleep!
I asked my doctor about getting mirena for birth control after the baby is born. She said they can put it in right after the birth so you don't have to go in and get it later. Has any one heard of this before? Or has anyone tried mirena? It sounds so easy! Especially because i'm not good at remembering my pills.
