Erin–So glad your baby’s are doing well. I am sure little Erin will get more interested in food and start eating more. She will have her sister to keep up with. By the way which baby is the “oldest” ? Do they have your babies on a high calorie formula? Or what brand are they using?
I know I was told by my peds if Allie is on the small side I may have to supplement breastfeeding with a high calorie infant formula.
Chica–Yah it will take that reaction a couple of days. I think something with aloe would be helpful. I was just thinking the other day I should reeeeaaaly do something with my va jay jay but I am just too embarrassed to do that. Got too much going on down there right now.
Chica in comparison to myself I think 6 lb 6 oz is great!!! I am praying my little one is at least 5 lb and we are due within a day or so of each other. Also though at this stage the u/s can be sooooooo off with regard to weight. They tell you there is a 2 lb. error in either direction. So the likliehood that your baby is much bigger is high. I would not worry about it one iota, as long as the baby is in the healthy range. I have a growth scan on Friday and this point I am taking mine with a grain of salt unless the dr says I need to be worried.
Artchick–Who hoo!!! on your baby shower. Things are moving so quickly aren’t they. My first plan for travel with baby is a cruise in December. LOL I was trying to book the cruise and had to ask the cruise ship how do you book for a baby that isn’t born yet? They have yet to be able to answer that question.
AFM–I spent a good part of this early morning in L & D. :grr: :grr: :grr: :grr: :grr: Again had false labor contractions; they started at 12:30 at around 9-10 minutes apart. I tried to rest and ignore them but they got more painful and closer together until finally at 4:30ish I called my OB when they were 5 minutes apart and lasting about a minute and she sent me to L & D. Well I got there and I was contracting and having pretty strong contractions but they have not changed my uterus AT ALL. I am still at the 2 cm I was a week ago and my cervix is still pretty thick. They did say that baby is so engaged they can feel her head. Sooooo they made me walk around for an hour to see if it would make me progress and of course nothing so they sent me home. They did at least send me home with some ambien so I was able to sleep through the pain (ambien is good stuff, have not tried that before.)
I hate doing the walk of shame home because of false labor contractions. At this point, unless my water breaks or the baby starts sliding out I have no idea how to tell the real from the fake thing. I just know I don’t want to go through that again and I am still having contractions off and on today. This is really miserable.
