Stephen and I attended the prenatal class at the Mis from 9-3pm.
It was a lot of fun, meeting couples, learning cool, new stuff, getting clarifications on certain things, a tour of the facilities, etc etc etc. We were sooo tired though but we thought it was worth it. The speaker was awesome, she was so funny :)
I would love to do a detailed post about our experience but nah. I don’t wanna bore you lol.
Oh, but my favorite part was when we had the Lamaze class and the guys (our coaches) had to massage us ladies. Ahh. Steve doesn’t have any excuse not to give me massages anymore since he knows how important it is to me/the both of us. Bahaha :)
I need help.
I’m trying to find a prenatal GUMMY with calcium & iron. My vitamins don’t have either. I’ve been taking a calcium supplement, and I’m thinking about starting an iron supplement if I can’t find the vitamin. My life would be so much easier if I had a prenatal gummy with everything in it, otherwise I’m gonna have to take 3 things a day, on top of nausea.
I would really appreciate your help!
Dr Appt #..um..
Who counts anymore? :p I feel like I live there but at the same time look forward to going back sooner than scheduled!
Today’s appointment went very well. Babygirl is measuring just right and mommy’s blood pressure is still doing awesome. She is transverse right now so we are going to try and coax her down to the vertex position (optimal position for birth!) in the next week or 2. It’s still pretty early, almost 32 weeks but I’d like to get her settled. So far she’s given me quite the fight. We are assuming she’s a redhead like me, that could be the reason lol. I try to gently massage her in a clockwise position and she kick kick kicks everytime. It’s cute to me, probably not so much if she was bigger.
I think she’s paying me back again right now by getting some extreme hiccups. I’ve never been annoyed by any of the movements or feelings though, I think they’re absolutely amazing! How do you feel about your baby movements?
So a couple people have looked at my food log and noticed that I’m taking a prenatal vitamin. No, I’m not pregnant (I wouldn’t still be losing weight…or trying to should I say if I was.)
But I do want to get pregnant soon. We’re gonna start trying after the besties wedding (no way am I going to be a pregnant maid of honor, tooo much stress for baby) and prenatals are important to have in your system before for the health of the baby (tube stuff especially).
Anyway, got a couple of questions about that. So there you go :)
Not pregnant, gonna start trying in a little over a month.
Today was my second appointment to make sure our baby was growing. Two weeks ago it was just a sack, and because I was spotting I was told I might miscarry and was put high risk. I am still high risk, however now there is a fetus with a heartbeat. He/she is six weeks and five days due April 12, 2010 just a few days after my butterfly’s birthday. Everything looked good but the doctor said she was looking for a heartbeat of 160+ and the baby had a 128 heart rate. She said she doesn’t want to scare me, as if the baby won’t make it but that she wants me to be prepared in case he/she doesn’t make it. This worries me, with my history of miscarriages and premature births. I will have faith though, so far so good right? I had my chart set up today, along with the lab work 8 tubes of blood -_- jeeeeesus ! I was drained after that and I’ve had a migraine ever since. Can’t wait to close my eyes. This pregnancy has me with NO energy what so ever.
I finally got to speak to my husband today, after like 10 days. He logged into Facebook and we chatted a bit I’m excited he’s a Black Belt instructor now ! :) proud of him <3
Prenatal Syphilis Screenings Cut Stillbirths
Screening pregnant women for syphilis could reduce by more than half the persistent toll of the disease in stillbirths and perinatal deaths, an analysis of several studies suggested. Each year, more than two million pregnant women worldwide have syphilis, and more than two-thirds of those women have adverse outcomes of the pregnancy, including late abortion or stillbirth and congenital syphilis. Evidence that these screenings prevent thousands of stillbirths could force health care providers worldwide to adhere to recommended screening policies for syphilis.
