I ate a banana and peanut butter just now...fingers crossed I don't need the gas relief. :P I'm still hungry tho...

Apparently movement really helps: walking, moving on an exercise ball, rocking in a rocking chair were all suggestions. Of course when I'm that bloated movement sounds like the last thing I want to do!
I've found getting out and walking (usually the dogs, which they are enjoying!) to be the least offensive activity to help with the bloating.

Nobody who isn't a recently pregnant mom will find this funny or cute so I had to share it here.

Earlier today I was talking about how a friend's son was born really premature a few years ago, and I told SO that he was born at the same age our baby is now.

SO asked "How big is the baby now?"
Me: "IDK around a pound and a half, I think"
SO: "No....I mean in fruit. What fruit size is she?"

I wish it were more of an option here - we've had heat indexes near 100 for the last week, so walks outside aren't an option after about 10a and before 7p. I may have to break down and treadmill.

See, my husband is just the opposite...
Roy: "Why do they keep using fruit to measure size? I don't know the size of half this **** right off the top of my head!"
Me: "What measurements do you want them to use? Puppies? Kittens?"

Lol.

LOL Every week I would send the Baby Center update to my DH to read about what the baby was at developmentally for that week. When I got home he would rub my belly and tell me whatever fruit/veggie the size comparison was. I don't know if he read any other part of the page or just scanned for the food comparison LOL Every week routine

Yeah, I am despising all the pregnancy weight I still have (I gained 35 lbs total, lost 25 lbs by 2 weeks post partum, need to lose another 10 to pre-preggo weight, but would like to lose 20 lbs to get to my "ideal" weight)...I would LOVE to walk but it's disgusting out. I am dripping sweat just pottying the dogs (aka standing in the backyard while they do their business). I hate getting all nasty and sweaty in my nursing bras. Looking forward to Fall already! Plus the little man's cluster feeding has finally tapered and we're at more scheduled feed breaks which should hopefully only get better as he gets older.

Work is driving me crazy. I had someone cover my lab for me while I'm gone. My son is 3 weeks old, and the girl is 2 weeks behind on running my specimens. I am caught up on getting the results out but she is not...and she keeps lying that she is whenever I have someone call to help her out. Extremely frustrated. Also, she's messy and I'm OCD so it kills me when I pop in on Saturday's to bill patients out and the lab is disgustingly dirty.

I'm in L&D (my new second home apparently) for the third time, at 28 weeks. I was having (I thought/think) Braxton hicks contractions that didn't stop and wanted to get double checked at the office. Now I'm hooked up to 20 machines and needles and hoping its dehydration even though I've drank over 2 liters since they started 12 hours ago.

The midwife said I'm 20% effaced and a fingertip. Does anyone know if that's normal

MM that sucks. Not sure it helps at all, but my midwife said I should be drinking at least 3L if not 4L of water to stay fully hydrated, so 2L in 12 hours is really not that unusual, even though it feels like a lot.

Everything I've read says dilation is no indication of how close labor is, but they were all talking 35+ weeks.

I'm supposed to be drinking 6L a day to help with my low BP, which is annoying and not usually achievable. I usually do drink about 4L a day, but it's been 100 degrees here and maybe I slacked off a little. I was pretty dehydrated coming in (even after guzzling near 2L from 9am-noon), but the contractions are still coming after IV fluid. They're weak ones, though.

I asked the nurse about the effacement and she was like "ummm....sometimes after your first baby the cervix is softer....she'll probably recheck you", and it was the least reassuring I've ever heard a nurse sound.
