Re: Can you ladies recommend some comfy shoes?

I've really liked Payless's SafeTStep brand this pregnancy. They were pretty cheap and have been very comfortable. I usually stick with New Balance or Skechers, but those just haven't been as...

Chicco Neuvo Travel System Deal

I got super lucky ladies, and wanted to pass it on in case any of you can take advantage, too!

Many (though not all) Target stores have their teal travel system on clearance. It's the Keyfit 30...

Re: Ahhhh...taxes

Ally, you're not doing anything wrong! We've had to pay a couple hundred the last couple of years, and while it's not fun writing a check in April, at least we've had our money the whole year and...

Re: Support belts

I got one at Sears in their Two Hearts Maternity brand a few months ago when they had buy one get one free on maternity items. It seems fine to me - my back hasn't been bad at all so far. It's not...

Re: Whooping cough tetanus shot

I had a reaction. I got the dtap shot at my appointment 2 weeks ago. The next day the site was just sore, but by 2-3 days after, I had a spot that was red and warm and sore, and had grown to 4-5...

Re: Appointments Week of 1/19/15

Me, tomorrow. Ultrasound to check on my placenta previa, followed by appointment with the doctor who handles more high risk cases and would probably do my c-section if I need one. So we'll see how...

Re: BTDT Moms- What should FTM expect with their bodies after giving birth?

I was not prepared for how soft and flabby my belly was, or how long it took to feel that I didn't look pregnant anymore. I breastfed DD, but that was not a magic bullet for my belly the way it is...

SPD

I'm planning on talking to the doctor this week about it at my appointment, but I may not have much time, since he's not the one I usually see, and it will be right after my ultrasound to check on...

Re: Anyone still not have a name for their LO?

We're still not sure either. I think we both really like the most recent name we've come up with, but making a decision just seems so final.

Re: What's for dinner?

Burgers. I've been craving them (maybe because my iron is low side of normal?). We even found some ground beef reasonably priced at Sam's Club (ground turkey just wasn't going to cut it this time,...

Re: Freaking out! Opinions please!

My first thought was UTI, too. I just had one last week, and it didn't hurt to pee at all, but my lower back was hurting. Maybe it was a coincidence, but the back pain went away after day 2 of...

Re: Pelvic pain and pressure..like crotch punch?

I have the crotch punch pain right now, too! I don't remember feeling this with DD. It's right at my pubic bone, and it hurts pretty much all the time. Better when I'm sitting with my legs...

Re: Worried - GD and baby's weight

Yeah, what everyone else said. One of my DD's playgroup had her baby's weight decrease from one ultrasound to the next in the third trimester. (It didn't really - her baby was perfect and healthy)....

Re: Failed....

Sorry to hear. :-( I didn't have anyone else in DD's DDC who had GD (how's that for a bunch of abbreviations?) but I think there's at least 3 of us in here.

Re: Fabulous Friday

Christmas vacation! I'm off work now until mid-January, and it's fabulous. I have a hard time keeping track of the days of week, especially now that DD has the next 2 weeks off from preschool, too.

Re: Super Itchy Belly

I had that bad with DD. Your skin is stretching and dry. Any lotion you have, multiple times a day, will help. You can use calamine lotion, too if you need the itch relief, but the moisture is...

Re: Gestational Diabetes

It's not a weight thing. It's just how your pregnancy hormones affect your insulin production/resistance, and they're still not sure how or why it happens. Genetics seem to play a role. Getting GD...

Re: Selective interuterine growth restriction - need prayers

Yikes. Well, one ultrasound can be off - it's not an exact science. But if they're checking on you frequently and it still shows that, then I'm so sorry.

Would they consider delivering them both...
