I hate this in between stage. I've felt my lil guy move a few times, but nothing major yet. I just want to start feeling it more. I'm so nervous all the time I get so scared that something is wrong. I didn't rent a doppler because we don't have the extra money for one. So, I sit here daily and worry. Any suggestions on how to get through this? I go for my next appt a week from this coming Monday. I can't wait to hear my baby's hb.
Oh I wish I had some advice. I am still kind of in that in between stage, although they are finally getting more frequent and more on schedule. I don't have a doppler either, and for me that is probably a good thing. I just spend my time on JM..lol No seriously though, I keep trying to find other things to occupy my time and my mind. I have been working on Abby's scrapbook, so if I am focused on her then I have less time to think about this baby not moving in there. And then all of a sudden I would get that little flutter that I needed to go on. Also sometimes when its been far too much time in between I will call the dr. and see if I can be seen. I hope someone else can offer more advice. Its always just one day at a time for me. Hang in there momma!! We are here for you.
Sometimes you can make them move with a really cold glass of ice water, guzzle it and then lay down. Also after eating breakfast or a little bit of sweets. I know its not good to give our little ones sugar all of the time, but a little bit to just make us feel better!
Thank you Mistyx5 for my siggy.
I wish I had some advice, but I don't think I have even felt my little one move yet. I don't even know how it will feel like
But I'm with Rhonda on this one, take it one day at the time, try to keep your mind busy, you have Haley's brithday coming up very soon, that should keep you busy. I also did not rent a doppler, we do have the money, but I know that if I can't find the h/b I would be freaking out and putting more stress on the baby...
I'm with you on siting here worrying, wondering if everything ok, that why we have each other to help with our worries, among other things.
i agree with the other ladies - it helped me to find something to keep me busy a lot. i threw myself into work during the middle of my pregnancy.
i also did not rent a doppler b/c i would have been using it all the time and stressing out to find the heart beat so i figured i would be less stressed without one.
each day is a day closer to your next apointment & soon you will be feeling your little one moving more and more!
