MARCH 2009 BUBS- REVISITED Lock Rss

Hi girls,

Heartburn - I have been taking Mylanta chewable tablets. Seem to be working alright....

I think that I need to invest in some new shoes.... feet and legs have been pretty sore after work these last few days - although the heat has probably contributed too!

As my belly gets bigger, I am getting soo much more excited about this pregnancy, and am really looking forward to holding bubs in my arms!

Has anyone found anywhere that sells maternity nighties? I ended up buying a nightie about 4 sizes bigger... and although it fits nicely over the bump now - I'm not sure if it will in a few weeks!

Take care everyone,
Vicki

Big W sells maternity sleepwear, nighties and stuff! Pretty cheap too!

pokie.... definately get the fruit tingles. i cant recommend them highly enough. a midwife told me that at my first hospital appointment and since then i have mentioned it on here and it has helped others as well.. good luck

i carry a packet everywhere and i dont even like them, but they do work.

Hi Girls & Bumps

I dont know if I have heartburn or something similar, but i tend to get a burning feeling right in the back of my throat. Having never had heart burn before I have no idea if this is what it feels like! I have been taking mylanta and its seems to relieve it a bit - but i will be trying the fruit tingles for sure! They sound much tasstier than liquid chalk! Great tip!

Have any of you had any side effects from the Glucose blood test? I had mine this morning and have been feeeling shocking ever since! I am so lethargic, feel really really exhausted and feel really squrimy in the tum! My mum is diabetic and said thats the feeling she gets when her sugar is too high - i hope this does not mean that my body cant cope with the sugar! Hopefully this is all normal, and wont mean my tests come back showing that i have it.

I would really appreciate to hear from any one who has had the test and to see how you felt afterwards!

Talk soon,

Hi everyone. Finally got back to the thread and I thought I had lost my mind! Glad I have found you all again - not that i wrote much but never had much to report.

Well my name is Sarah and I am 28yrs old living in the NT. I have two girls Jordyn who is 8 and Gracie who is 5 on the 10th of Dec - going on 25 such a character!! My partner and I seperated for 2 years after a 5 year relationship and reconciled at the beginning of the year with a terrific counsellor who has claimed the name of Grandma LOL. He is not Jordyn's biological father but he has raised her since she was 5 months old as her "sperm donor" is a useless W!
So hopelessly back in love and happy as a pig in ****.

I am due on the 24th of March with a boy. They are tossing up my dates due to me being in hospital with threatened premature labour. It was so scary. I had pains for about 3 days and being baby number 3 I just thought they were Braxton Hicks as I dont remember getting many or any witht the girls and this pregnancy has been sooooo different. Anyway they admitted me and had me on some tablets to relax my uterus. They think I may have an Irritable Uterus. So I could be having a baby around the 19th but being the little trouble maker he is - he will probably stay in there 2 weeks extra just to make me love him more LMAO hahahah

Quick question what does all the Initals stand for when your shortening words like DD1 or DS2. I am feeling really dumb!! And the one you use for your partner etc

I found raw onion and tomato sauce gives me reflux. I have Rennie Tablets to chew on. I get the burning horrible feeling at the back of my throat too

Well anyhoo I had better get some work done while I am lasting at work!!!!

no probs.. was thinking of that earlier today

Hi all,

I'm starting to feel really uneasy about giving birth! I mean, there's no turning back and I wonder if I can do it. I know everything will be fine - the specialist will be delivering him and DP will be there to support me - Although when I expressed my feelings last night he said "well you should have thought about that 9 months ago..." Thanks love... Men!!

I'm really tired and I'm training my replacement at work which is wearing me out. Roll on maternity leave!! It all seems so far away but I know it will be here before I know it.

Hope you are all well,
Sarah smile
Hey Sarah,

I'm with you on the whole feeling uneasy thing. Im S**t scared that im gonna be a crap mum. I have never really had much patience for children. I can only hope that changes with our little one. I had a dream last night that I was trying to breastfeed and kept dropping the baby and it was giving me evils cause I couldnt give it any milk.....crazy!!

I've got to start training my replacement next week for 2 weeks then she has xmas and half of January off then I can finish up work Yay!!! I have been making notes for the last two weeks to help make training easier.

Im sure we will all be fine our natural instincts will kick in and we will be pros befor we know it!!

take care xxx

Well I got chucked back into hospital Wednesday night. I'm really not having much luck with this pregnancy. Hopefully I can get my operation before Christmas. I need to find out all the risks, but think I'd rather chance going into early labour than not have it and be in and out of hospital all the time. It's just getting so frustrating. And I don't know how Andrew would cope looking after 4 kids on his own if I don't have it till after Taylah's born.

Hope everyone is having a better time than me.

P.S. I've already told the hospital I'm straight for the epi. I don't do pain so as long as I don't feel it I don't care.

Penn - Yeah, I'm thinking I might have an epidural too.

I've seen a few birth programs and the epi births look much less painful and more peaceful! I don't do pain either. My mother-in-law was full of praise that my SIL did it naturally and made it sound as though she thought drugs were cheating but I don't care what she thinks.

It's just the labour & birth that I'm scared about. Stuff like will I get to the hospital on time and how long is it going to go for - Mum was in labour for 22 hours with me! Part of me hopes that they'll get me to hospital then say I need a caesarian so I just have to lie there while they whip him out. Perhaps they can pull out some belly fat at the same time? wink

I think I'll be a good Mum - I know it's different but I've been "mum" to so many animals in my life. I think natural instincts will kick in and your body will know what to do.

I'm so ready for the weekend. Anyone who disturbs my sleep in tomorrow is gonna be in pain. tongue

Have a good one,
Sarah smile
