I am going crazy... - Page 2

I have a few of those tiny spider veins on my legs, too. My friends say you can't hardly see them, but I can! I think it comes with age...guess I better expect more of that since I will be 40 in 3 years.

Debby, I am joining this thread late, normally I am a very active person, at the very end of my pregnancy I felt just the way you do now. For me, it meant I was nesting and the baby was born about four days later.

Daniala, I am about 5 ft 2 in; when my son was born he only weighed 5 lbs 11 oz, and my stomach was absolutely huge. At that time, my OB told me that the largest baby I was physically capable of being pregnant with was 7 lbs. It's amazing that your son weighed 10 lbs at birth.

Yea, my pregnancy w/ him was unbelievable. First off, I was only 19 when we got pg. so I was scared ( just married, living in Germany ). Secondly, I was soooooooo big, that I was terrified to deliver. I was having nightmares, the whole deal.

Anyway, at my 38 week appt, the doc did the ultrasound and said he was over 9 lbs so they wanted me to deliver immediately considering I was a fairly small person ( at the time I was 5 feet tall and weighed prepregnancy about 110 lbs ). So they did a csection the next morning, and low and behold he was 9 lbs 15 oz and 2 weeks early! It was truly amazing, he looked like he was 2 months old at birth!! The doc said he knew he was going to big based on the ultrasounds.

My daughters was much more normal. I was older and wiser, I was 25 when I had her. I had read normally your second child is larger, so I was really scared. But they monitored me closely, and around 37 weeks they were estimating her at 7/8 lbs so they let me carry to term. She was 7 lbs 10 oz, and I had her about 6 days before my due date. I felt a lot smaller w/ her, even though looking at the pics I was pretty big.

I'm done having babies now.

Daniella, that sounds like my pregnancies. I'm 5'6 1/2" and big-boned. Pre-pregnancy weight 135#.

The doctor said my first one would be about 8#. Richard weighed in at 10# 1oz. I was able to deliver, naturally. Never thought I'd be grateful for these broad hips! I was 17 and breezed through it.

Three years later, Mark weighed in a 7# 6oz. Don't know what happened, there. Usually, in my family, each subsequent baby is bigger. He WAS a lot easier to deliver, though.

My main concern was twins. MY mother is a twin and all four of us are singles. Sometimes these things skip a generation and we know WHO it would have hit.

That was it! I hit my two-kid limit and forced Mark to be the baby of the family. I HAD to quit having babies - it was too easy and God knows how many I'd have, by now!

Found some pix. The first one was taken at my baby shower (8 mos). The second was 12 days postpartum.

Actually, everyone who sees me lately tells me how terrible I look. They all say I look miserable. Alot of it is the lack of sleep, I think. Last night I tossed and turned all night, and finally got to sleep at 7:00 this morning, then was up again at 11:30. I need to clean out the closet in the babies room and the rest of the drawers in her dresser today, and I just don't have the energy. I thought if maybe I got online for awhile first, I would perk up a little. So I will be starting on that stuff here soon.

Cindy...I love the pictures!!!

Debbie, I'm sure your friends mean well, but I don't think anyone should tell you that you look terrible! When I'm not quite up to par I feel better when someone tells me I'm looking better. So--take a shower, put on a cute shorts outfit, some makeup and jewelry and know that pregnant is beautiful!

Debby, I can't think of a better time for you to get your new scanner out of its box and hook it up to your computer. (hint hint)

You will be sooooooo proud of your brand-new daughter, (you'll feel much better after she's born) and we will really enjoy looking at some nice pictures of her!!!

That's a really good idea!! If I have any energy left after I clean out the babies closet and dresser, I will do that! I have been waiting for my sister-in-law to have the time to come over and show me how to hook it up and use it, because I have no clue, and don't want to screw something up...but maybe I will just give it a go anyway!!!

Jeanie, yes...my friends mean well, but they are just worried about me I think, because I look so worn out.

Debby, it shouldn't be that hard. I had never touched a computer, in my life and I hooked up the computer, scanner and printer, all by myself! Mine are all HP and came with instruction posters, with step-by-step pictures. I figured that, if I can put together a dress, following directions, I could do this.
