The doctors visit

I was so nervous for my doctors check up on Tuesday, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. It was quick and definitely, DEFINITELY uncomfortable. The strep test thing was cake, but then to see where Hayden's head is was not super. He was pretty high when my doctor checked, Hayden apparently loves the nice little home that I have made for him and would like to continue bonding. But I have heartburn and numbness in my arms and hands that take turns wreaking their unpleasantness on my body. So the Doctor thinks that Hayden probably drops(which causes the pins and needles, numb feeling) and then goes back up under my ribs(super duper heartburn) and then drops(numb) and hangs out and then goes backup(heartburn?... what a silly, silly boy but I don’t think he is very funny... I’m sooo ready for him to come and not be pregnant anymore. But at the same time I am not ready at all. I just can't wait to be able to sleep with only 2 pillows instead of 5 or 6 and not have to toss and turn all night. I will venture back into the doctor next week on the 23rd, 2 days before Christmas... My little counter only says 20 days left... HOLY COW! That’s nothing... I'm trying not to stress and get all the stuff together that I need and figure out how much stuff is necessary. How many bottles and nipples and formula/breast milk bags, and how many of this and that... blah... hopefully I will keep my sanity with Christmas coming and such. Oh and I need some opinons... I have a sweet gift card for onestepahead.com and I am debating between this sweet 4 in 1 nursing shawl or this baby wrap thing....which do you think? Both? Neither? I can find a different more awesomer, possibly cheaper version of these somewhere else?(click the black parts for the link to see 'em )

I am sorry you are so miserable! I had to sleep with tonz of pillows too. I basically say up when I tried to go to seep at night! Heartburn is the most awful thing ever. By my 8th month I could not eat hardly anything, cause it all gave me heartburn, then I cold not eat anything after 5:30. Good times!! :) It is almost over though :) I would say get the 4 in one nursing shawl. That looks very handy :)

Well, that is really a hard choice...um I think I like the baby wrap thing better mostly because I think the nursing shawl is probably really over priced and you could find something like that somewhere else for a lot cheaper? I don't know though it's hard to decide. So does the doctor think the baby will still come this year? I'm really excited for you Megan you are right you are almost there!

Your BIG day is almost year. Sorry you so miserable. I slept with a body pillow when I was Pregnant. It work really well. If I were you I would go with the baby wrap. I have a wrap and I love it. You can get a nursing shawl reaper at Target. They have really cute ones. Good luck with your doctors appointment next week. Sounds like you might be having a Christmas baby.

Jacob's Aunt made me a baby wrap just like the one you want. I love it. Jacob's Aunt says you can use it to nurse too. On this website www.mobywrap.comit it shows you how to nurse in the wrap.

Dang.. baby come out! and dang number two.. I dont know which thing you should buy.. both would be wonderful. maybe the shawl though.. i love mine. and with Jaxon he didnt drop until after I was in labor and in the hospital.. and I knew when he dropped because i could breath all of a sudden. so dropping is a sign of labor, but it doesnt always happen before labor. your babe will come.. no worries.

Hang in there girl! Don't stress out - it's bad for you and bad for the baby and bad for the delivery and just BAD BAD BAD all around. Be calm and know it's all gonna work out JUST FINE :) You've made it this far - what's another 20 days? Cake walk!

Ahhh the 'I don't want to be preggers anymore' stage. Its a fun one. I hit there with both my boys when my feet turned to tree trunks from edema!

I say if you have stairs one step ahead has some REALLy good gates!

Good luck and like you said 20 days....give or take a few anyways....

Jenn said...

Hey Meg! Glad you hear you are hanging in there. I'm praying for you. Hope you had a good Christmas and got some shopping done. =) As for the gift card. I would definitely recommend the sling thing. All my pregnant and mom friends highly recommend this nursing cover. They say it's the best ever and now they get them as gifts for everyone. I would get you one, but I couldn't make it to your shower...and I'm poor. =) Anyway check it out. http://nursingcovers.com/catalog.php?category=4
