I still have insomnia had it the whole pregnancy. I have almost everything ready. How about everyone else?
    Hi, I'm feeling very uncomfortable now and getting fed up. 8 weeks seems like such a long time to go! Did you go for your growth scan? I was just wondering if they told you an estimated weight. I went for a scan on Friday and she is measuring two weeks bigger. the tech estimated her weight to be 4 pounds and 8 ounces at 31 + 5 days, she kept saying she was a big baby and asked if I was hoping for a natural delivery. This made me very nervous!

    I don't know the weight. I forgot to ask. I have to get another scan on June 12th and will ask then. Don't be alarmed. I ran into my son's old basketball coach and she was told she was going to have a 10lb baby based on ultrasound give or take a pound. Her dr. told her to get a c-section and she did. She was worried about having a c-section. She had her baby this past Monday and he was only 8.5lbs. She could of had a natural delivery.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the weight either at this stage. At 32 weeks with DD I was told she was a 5lb'er but she was only 7lb 1oz at birth. I think our bubs go through a growth spurt in the early 30 weeks and then slow down in the latter stages. Plus the growth scans can over estimate a baby weight by up to 60%.

    This baby was 5lb 8oz at 34 weeks and doc said that was within normal ranges.

    Hi ladies,
    Hope everyone is well! I am due 25th July with bubs no. 1. (6 weeks left)
    Sorry if this is a taboo subject but how is everyone going with weight gain?! Ive only put on 3.1kg so far and apart from my huge belly, the rest of my body is slimmer than when i got pregnant. I eat regular meals and still eat chocolate etc when i feel like it, including lots of midnight snacks! Keep getting told off from friends that i must be starving myself but im not, far from it! Thanks

    Hi miss sweet 3.1kg is very little alright. Did you have bad morning sickness as the start. I have gained about 8kgs or 18lb starting from a healthy weight and I have 4 weeks left. But I didn't make it to the recommended minimum 2stone gain last time either and had a normal 7lb baby. If your doc is not concerned then don't stress too much about it and keep eating healthy meals & snacks. I just gain a belly too and the rest of my body stays the same. I wouldn't tell anyone in real life about your pregnancy weight gain as people love to criticise

    Hi Pearl327,
    my bmi was classed obese when i fell pregnant (164.5cm tall & weighed 88.3kg). I had all day nausea in the 1st trimester, and since about 30 weeks ive been feeling a bit off again.
    Because my arms legs and face have slimmed down so much its bit hard not for people to notice and comment on it.
    Doesnt really bother me as my doctor and midwives are happy and bubs is growing well and healthy, was just wondering how much others gained i might just be one of those people that stack it on near the end of the pregnancy! Atleast i havent got any fluid retention or swelling. Which is important seeing as im still working and my job involves being on my feet and busy busy for 8 hours a day.
    I see youre having a boy after a successful sway, a huge congratulations to you!!

    I have gained about 20lbs this pregnancy. My last pregnancy I gained like 8pds but was over weight. I weighed less this pregnancy. I am also due July 25th. I usually go earlier though. I had a NST test on Thursday and the baby was uncooperative so I had to have a biophysical ultrasound and this week I have an ultrasound for the follow up on the femurs. I am trying not to be too worried.

    Hi iluvmy4sons,
    Sorry what is a NST test? Im sorry things arent going as well as they could be xx
    Have got fingers crossed for you.
    What is it like raising 4 boys? Is 2, 3, or 4 children that much more expensive than 1 child?
    I havent written enough posts yet to be able to see your signature so cant see if you are having a boy or girl this pregnancy

    It is a Non Stress Test. You are hooked up to a monitor that sees if you are having contractions as well as they track the baby's movements by you pressing a button when you feel the baby move. I guess they check to see how heart rate fluctuates as well. I am having a girl after 4 boys. It can be expensive, but to me it is worth it. You can cut corners and with have the older boys they wear some hand me downs, but we also get them a few new things as well. I buy items on clearance etc.

    Iluvmy4sons - oh a girl, congratulations
    Sorry, i had never heard of a NST test before, i dont know if they do them in Australia.
    It's hard not to worry but theres not much point stressing until after you have the results from this weeks ultrasound and know for sure whats going on. Easier said than done though when it concerns the baby growing inside of you.
    Fingers crossed for good news x
