Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Thanks, AHL!! Yes, all of those things pretty closely match what I've read about the Spectra pumps. I've been considering the S1 over the S2 (has the rechargeable battery), because I haven't been able to confirm yet whether or not I'll always have access to an outlet at work. The flanges always seem...

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

AMC, Cooper is a cutie-pie, and definitely the spitting image of his big brother! Bobbin, you're a real trooper, making it so far past your due date with that incredibly unhappy ute of yours. How wonderful that you were able to achieve the birth experience you really wanted, and with a 10lb babe no ...

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Evergreen, for some things we've also closed our eyes to products not making it to all the lists (e.g. crib mattress), but for some other things I quickly realized I needed to broaden my search if I was going to find something that was best for us (like the diaper bag). Between the mini and the GT, ...

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Evergreen, we've actually been referencing babygearlab and the baby bargains book quite a bit! We found both pretty early on - I forgot to mention them before, so I'm glad you brought them up. They're both great resources, although we're finding they can be frustrating because they don't consider AL...

Still getting heartburn and occasional headaches, but I can move and do things without cringing. I got my craft room all settled (including hanging the shelves), so I shou...

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Blingbunny, I hope the friable cervix doesn't turn out to be a constant source of unnecessary worry - from what I understand it will likely mean some bleeding or spotting, which are always a bit scary to see when pregnant, but by itself I haven't heard that a friable cervix during pregnancy is a big...

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Yikes on the fainting! Have you talked to your OB about it yet? I'm curious what he/she thinks it could be. It took too long and way too many calls from my doc's office to the imaging center to get my US report sent back, but I finally heard the results yesterday. They're saying I have moderate hydr...

Thanks for the blog link, Evergreen! I will have to check it out. You are so slim that I'm sure once your bump really pops it will be super obvious to any stranger. But yes, I can see what you mean that right now even a trained eye might have trouble picking it up. My anatomy scan is scheduled for J...

Hello again, ladies! I've decided it's time to graduate up to this thread. I'm 14 weeks tomorrow, but in so many ways I feel and look much further along. I'll let you girls decide just HOW far along I look, but at my 12 week appointment my doc told me I'd be wise to compare my physical symptoms to t...

Oopsies, but congrats! When the FRER or digi show the same thing, and once DH calms down, hop on over to JBP. Everygreen and I are both nearly ready to graduate to the big thread, and Blingbunny will be happy for some company. ;)

Re:

Evergreen, if it weren't for the bellaband I would have bought the maternity jeans a week sooner, at least! At 8 weeks the fibroid was 8cm. Google says most grapefruit are bigger, at 10-15cm, though it is entirely possible the fibroid has grown to that size by now. Regardless, even at 8cm it gave my...

Re:

Blingbunny, I can't see why the Bellband wouldn't work with most buttoned/zipped pants. The one catch is that for it to work well, you have to pull it down far enough that it will cover front/back pockets on most pants. It's not a deal breaker for me, since I can hike it up to get in my pocket and t...
