Update on me................(pg ment)

Wow these new boards are gonna take some time to get used to, but I think they are great!!! I just wanted to give a little update for those interested. Well I'm what 27w4d, baby is doing fine! I went to doc on Weds due to my consistant back pain. He feels all this pain is due to the way I'm sleeping & the extra load I'm carrying upfront! There really isn't much that can be done. He suggested moist heat, rest & some stretches (which right now are immpossible due to the pain). He took me off work for a few days, I go back Tuesday, just to give me some rest. Let me tell you today is only day 2 of rest and I am completely bored!!! Atleast my back will have a few days to stretchen up but I still haven't gotten much relief from his orders. I'm doing really great with my weight gain I'm upto 9lbs gained so far!! I looked at my records with dd and by this point in that pg I had already gained 25lbs, I do have to admit I was a bit under weight before her! I'm so happy now since before pg I wasn't exactally happy with my weight, a bit over than my ideal, I feel that after this baby the weight will just shed off (well I can hope for that right!!!LOL!!!). We start our Prepared childbirth classes this next Thursday. Dh starts working overtime next week, almost daily for the next 3 months, so we can have some extra money when I'm off work. I just hope he doesn't get to stressed out working so much, he works for the postal office. This means he works 10hr days & sometimes has to give up his day off to work (he still always has Sunday off but his other day rotates).

Take care,

janel & baby Ty (countdown has begun......86? days to go)

Janel...I'm sorry that rest is so boring, but I hope you feel better when you're allowed to get back up! Woohoo on only gaining 9 lb so far! My total gain w/ K1 was 15 lbs and total w/ K2 was 13 lbs...and the weight melted off afterward, so there's hope for you too! I haven't lost as much after K2 as I did after K1 but I'm still well under how much I weighed when I got prego w/ either of them! Sue

Wow Janel! I can't belive it's time for those childbirth classes already! Time is flying! I don't know if you've noticed, but you are as far along in weeks as my girls are old!

About being in bed, have you tried working on something for the baby? Either scrapbooking, or needlework or something? I worked on Christmas stockings. They wont be done for a few Christmases yet, but it gave me something to look forward to! LOL!
