Thank you to everyone that commented about my pictures : ) a little update on the baby: he weighs 1lb 8oz already probably more now cuz that was as of last week. I feel huge and im only 23 weeks a long. The baby is doing fine and I found out I have an anterior placenta. Also I will be switching doctors as of mid april cuz the one I go to now is a dumb ass and don't do anything for me and I have told them over and over again that im high risk and they just ignore it so im going to a better doctor who deals with high risk pregnancies. Sry for the little vent.

If any of you ladies have had a previous c-section, does your scar itch CONSTANTLY? I am assuming it's from stretching but it is like an unholy amount of itch - right across the scar, nowhere else. Been going on since about 17 weeks or so.

Quoting DylansMommy(21 weeks!):" Hello ladies!! So I have friends who are going through their boy's clothes, since they just had them ... [snip!] ... January, and I was wondering...how on earth do you dress a summer baby? Do you keep the footie pjs and the long sleeve onsies? "


Ive never had a newborn in the summer. but here our summers dont get too terribly hot. Although we do get hot days. I will prob mostly dress it in onsies adn cute little summer outfits. Footy sleepers are fine for us as our house has a/c so its never hot in the summer at bedtimes.

If your talking about the ones that support you and are tight and stiff and are supposed to help you get skinny again then no i havent used those. I was just talking about the ones that you wear when pregnant when your jeans cant do up anymore...or to extend the length of your shirts haha

As of yesterday afternoon, I am released from bedrest for the time being! So happy. Had a hell of a time with the doctors office, which I'll get into later when I have more time, but...ya. Ultrasound was done and Lola looked great and there was plenty of water surrounding her!

Quoting Chris's Mommy:" So I had my orientation with the Women's Health Clinic that I will now be seeing for the rest of my pregnancy ... [snip!] ... since Feb 12 at my last appt). Here I am at 22 weeks and 6 days. Sorry they are blurry, but my stomach has really popper. "


I ABSOLUELY recommend a midwife if you are a good fit for one! I had one with my oldest and, although my midwife sucked, I know in general you get a much better birth experience. They are MUCH less likely to opt for a c-section. OB's are trained surgeons. It is what they are trained for, surgery and intervention. Midwives, are trained in child birth - just, over all, the healthy birth of a baby with minimal intervention. They are much more likely to let your body work at it's own pace instead of putting time limits on things, and it makes recovery and bonding so much easier. Absolutely recomend!

Breastfeeding doesn't help me lose weight :( I always hold on to those last 10 lbs. I'm hoping a Belly Bandit will help shrink the tummy!
