Has anyone ever been on pain after an ultrasound? I had my 20 week us yesterday and it took an hour and a half since the baby was laying weird. She had to push really hard under my belly button and now I'm in a lot of pain. Has this happen to anyone?
Ok. This is the story. I have 4 brothers, no sisters. I believe EVERY baby deserves to be celebrated. Not just your first.
1st & 2nd baby showers were big and beautiful. my mom and mil threw it together.
4 yrs ago I was pregnant w baby #3 @ the same time as my sil. 6 wks difference. My mom asked me to help her w my sil bshower so i offered to get the decorations & favors (w my sil name ofcouse) When i got to my mom's house there's no one there, she didnt invite anyone, just my brothers & their families. As i'm setting up my sil arrives & yell.. Surpriseeee! She look at me funny & tells me "i thought this was YOUR baby shower" .. So i look at my mom & she starts laughing "hahaha its for both of you" -- i didnt think it was funny!!! îŽ
This time my sil & i were pregnant again (she already had her baby). My mom tells me she's throwin her a bshower. We go to her house, no signs of being a bshower, just a regular bbq w my brothers & their families my sil is there already so when i hand her her present she looks at me funny.. My mom again laughs and laughs and says " hahaha i havent even told her" îŽ
My mil had one for baby #3, simple but very nice. I dont always get along with her but she does looove her grandbabies. So after my moms little "prank" i was very grateful w my mil. This time around i askes my dh to let me know if his mom was planning anything 'cause i wanted to help (they've had some $ problems) she didnt want to say anything 'cause she wanted it to be a surprise.. But She told me & we're doing it together. I invited all my family. My mom NEVER offered to help and 2 days before she tells me she doesnt think shes going. She'll give me my present later.. I dont care about the damn present!!!!! I'm hurt/pissed she doesn't care.. Am her only daughter for goodness sake!!!! I dont care about the presents or having a biggg huge party.. I wanted my family/friends together to celebrate my little one!
I'm hispanic and my mom refused to have another shower for my second baby. Her reason was basically because she didn't have one with her second then why should I. I would tell her u really want her there with or without a gift and tell her u don't understand y she "can't" make it. Maybe she will tell you.
Group B strep advice appreciated! As I've posted before I recently out that I have group B strep & have had a UTI from it, I've since been treated for it but am worried about the complications it can cause during labour, passing it on to the baby etc. I know that I will be given antibiotics via an IV during labour but am sooooooooooo worried I won't get to the hospital in time to get the antibiotics in my system to be effective! My first labour was only 6 hours and am worried I won't make it to the hospital in time as I live a 30-40 minute drive away! This is worrying me so much I want to be there with plenty of time to prevent my baby contracting GBS would really like some advice from anyone with experience of GBS or anything like this as am also worried about giving birth with an IV line in the entire thing petrifies me! Am stressing about it as have not yet spoken to midwife about my concerns and it's no good for my baby being like this please help!!
I had it but was given the meds fine since I was in labor for 22hrs!! My friend tho went to the hospital and got the first dose of the meds and hade her lo in I think like 30 from the time he got there to birth. All they did was give baby meds and watch him for a little bit. He was and is still perfectly fine.
If u r talking about the area of ur pelvic bone then no. I had that problem from around 22wks. It's from ur muscles loosening andthen ur pelvic bone slips out of place. There is a wayto pop it back in. I did it and on my goodness it felt so much better. I was having problems flipping from one side to the other while in bed, it felt like my body was ripping apart in tht area. If that is ur prob then lay on ur back(propped up) have ur legs bent with ur feet flat maybe like 4in apart. Have someone hold ur legs together at the knees and you try and open them for about 5sec. Relax then open ur legs and have them put their elbow on one knee and their hand on the other then u try and close ur legs. Do it like 3times each and hopefully it will pop ur bones back into place. Sometimes it works for me sometimes it doesn't but I usually get a little relief after. I am now 39wks and I've been doing for awhile. Hope it helps.
I have my 20weeks scan this afternoon, soooo excited! I have read that some of u ladies recommend drinking orange juice before the scan to make the baby activate! How soon before the scan do u drink it?? And how much do u drink?? Xox
I'm 38 weeks and my baby likes to push against the inside of my stomach. It feels as if she's trying to burst through my skin! My stomach is so tight that the pressure actually hurts. I know it's not Braxton hicks because it's a different feeling. Just wondering if anyone elses baby does this. I'm scared she is too big and running out of room!
For you lovely moms who have babies already. I am on #2 but I was induced with my first so my contractions just came alot faster. So I am almost 39wks now I feel sick kinda crappy I am having cramps in my lower tummy while my stomach gets really hard and my back kinda hurts. Could these be contractions or am I just getting my hopes up?
Hey ladies!!!î• I'm 25wks preggo with a girlîŒ¨îŒ¨(I also have a 4 1/2yr old boy) since i could feel my baby move (around 12/13 wks) the movement has always felt extremely low and even now still very low and I can tell exactly how she lays with her head on my left hip and her feet the right!! She's been in this position for ever!!! At my 20wk ultrasound we had to stop n walk n drink juice to get her to move so they could measure correctly but she just rolled over!! She stayed horizontal but I guess the tech had a better view of the spinal view as she now faced their direction. I didn't have this problem with my son (but he was high risk due to him being a twin n having low amniotic fluid...the other twin disappeared at about 12/15wks) I'm scared that shell stay in this position and I'll end up having to have a c-section which I DON'T want!! I had my son naturally with a hell of a 23hrs of labor but I survived!! I guess my question is 'am I the only one with a stubborn horizontal laying baby'? Or if you had this problem what can I do to make her move or what was your outcome during labor?
Helloî– This is my second little one and i was wanting some ideas on what i could have instead of a baby shower? With my little girl I didn't have a baby shower as such but my workmates thru me a small surprise party where we went out for a meal and I got loads of baby clothes and wotnots and it was lovely but my mum and sister weren't a part of it and now I'm pregnant again I thought it might be nice to do something to involve them. I just want some ideas on something I can do with me mum, sister, mum in law and a few friends, there would only be about 8 of us in total but I just want to have a nice couple of hours with close friends and family before little man arrives but i want it to be something special like a baby shower but not quite a baby shower? Lol i'm sorry if this sounds very confusing...i'm suffering from very bad baby brain at mo making me confusing than normal! All ideas welcome anyways, thankyous in advance î–x
Have a diaper party. I was going to hve one since I already have a girl and I'm having another one. I made diaper invites by hand which are online. You can still do the fun games and have food and hang out but the gifts would only be the essential baby stuff.
Things are just going all wrong and I don't know what to do. First off I'm 38/5 with baby #2 due any time. I am due around the 15th but in sure I'll go over. My mom and stepdad are opening a new restaurant on the 21st and are having the grand opening that day. They are so involved with that they never ask me how this baby is doing, and haven't bought anything for this baby. They don't seem to care. On top of that I just found out that in the begining of my pregnancy my df cheated on me with a woman from work a couple times. We both want to try and get past this and get help or something but I can't stop crying when I look at him since all I see is him with another woman. My heart hurts from all of this and I just don't know what to do. Not obly do I not have my mom by my side but I feel like such an idiot for being with my df. I feel like everyone knew but me about his actions and now I feel like the other woman instead of the one he was suppose to love. I don't even know where to begin the healing process I am so emotional from being prego that I don't want to make any decisions right now on me and him but I feel like for my sanity I need to tell him to leave and never come back. But he has no where to go since he moved 1000miles away from everything he knows to be with me and so I could be closer to my mom, so I end up feeling bad.he says I have a big heart and I have noticed that I put all of my feelings last for everyone else and all I do is hurt myself. I wish I could be stronger right now but I just don't know how to.
I posted yesturday about all this crap and was expecting to find a bunch of woman telling me tha I should leave and a whole bunch of negitivity but that wasn't even what I got I have been getting alot of support and right now that is what I need. Right now I am staying at my moms house in the "apartment". So i wish I could leave but I can't go anywhere since I wil be delivering soon and my mom is the only one I know up here. His whole attitude has changed (for the good) but it has obly been two days since I found out and I only found out because I caught him talking to this other woman again. When I confronted him about it he said it was hard to work at his job with all her dirty looks and dirty looks from her sister. He didn't sleep with her this time around he said he was trying to be friends so he could get thru work. He told me that she would give him oral and that he felt like he "had" to sleep with her because of what she was doing for him. Really?!?! I told him to stop acting like I'm stupid you can't tell me that u started to have feelings for someone and then you slept with them because u felt bad. The thing is she has a family too. A husband and two kids and when I called her she told me to stay out of THEIR buisness. I want to call her husband so bad I can taste it but what will that do? Only cause more drama that I don't need. I plan on getting tested this Friday at my appt since who knows who else she slept with. I already have a lo and I'm trying to be strong or her but being around him and my family is tearing me apart. I hate involving fam in my relationship issues because I think fam holds grudges longer then the person that has been hurt. I have become great at acting like I'm great around people and it hurts me to the point my chest hurts and I have to hold back tears. I know only time will heal this between him and also with my famiy but I feel like I don't have time to deal with life right now and it bothers me. I am not in control of my life anymore and I'm lost.I need to leave n get out but we have only one car and I don't have any friends her that I could call up n say hey let's get out. I don't know what I'm more upset about the cheating, lying or that he lied when I asked him after I found out he was talking to her the first time. He will still have to work on the same shift as her so what do I do about that? How do I get my mind to stop racing while he is gone. I can't talk to him at work and can't afford for him to quit.
