Born & Birth stories



You may feel as if you have been pregnant forever at this point. It might be hard to imagine being pregnant for another ten weeks, but your baby still has a lot of growing and developing to do! By this time, your baby's crown-to-rump length is a little over 10.8 inches and the total length of your baby is about 17 inches! Your baby weighs about 3 pounds now. Your uterus can be felt about 4 inches above your bellybutton. Your uterus, baby, placenta and the amount of fluid will get larger over the next ten weeks. You should be gaining about a pound a week at this time.

Because you are getting larger, you are probably becoming slower and clumsier. You should try to be careful to avoid dangerous falls. Good posture when sitting and standing can help you feel better during your pregnancy. You also should be rolling over on your side to get up after lying down because your muscles have stretched to accommodate your growing uterus.

Even though your baby is cushioned by the amniotic fluid, she can feel and respond to pain. Your baby now does `practice breathing` to get ready for life outside of your womb. If you have an ultrasound at this time, you will be able to see this. If your baby swallows amniotic fluid down the wrong passage, she will still get hiccups that are noticeable by you. If your baby were born at this time, she would be able to keep herself warm.

The skin begins to smoothen as fat deposits accumulate underneath. The fat insulates and is an energy source.

Anyone else suffer from sulfur burps gas diarrhea I do and I don't know how to get relief and I'm a bit embarrassed to talk to my Dr about it

sher-baby - 14.3 hours ago
I 'sleep' on my sides but i tend to wake up when ever I have to change sides and the side that I had been sleeping on + my pubic bone usually is in a ton of pain!!! It's soooo hard and sooo painful to change sides at night!!! I really actually hate it, but my ribs usually hurt from laying on them so i kind of don't have a choice. I also had to invest in tums today...the heart burn is starting to happen more often now! ..Yay!!

mandykat760 - 17.7 hours ago
I'm a back sleeper. I try to sleep on my side but end up flat on my back. Now I sleep with my baby fort, 3 normal pillow, a body pillow and a giant materity pillow. It's taking over our king size bed. Haha

RJean - 21 hours ago
I am normally a stomach sleeper. I can never sleep on my back until I'm pregnant-and than all I want to do is sleep on my back. Which is problematic because everyone tells me I should be sleeping on my left side. :) I go to sleep on my side and always wake up on my back. As far as baby positioning, this guy is as high as possible. I have a super long torso and he ignores all of the room and squashes himself as close to my ribs as possible. I wake up with a big lump right under my ribs every morning and can usually point out his head and back with little difficulty. Its cute but making me paranoid that he'll settle into a breach position in a couple of weeks...

sher-baby - 1 days ago
I get the same things Babylove, but I'm naturally a stomach/side sleeper so it's almost impossible for me to sleep in my back..sitting up or laying down. But he deff goes a lil nuts when I first lay on my side then he calms down...but if I switch sides, he starts all over again.

babylove5 - 1 days ago
The baby feels so big that I have to sleep sitting up in the recliner. When I lay on my side he goes wild with the kicking. It's not like I can put him in another room...

sher-baby - 2 days ago
I'll be almost 35weeks for my baby shower...so I hope I don't pop that early either!!! Lol....god! Wouldn't that be a complete gong show!!!

babylove5 - 2 days ago
Lexy I'm glad your cervix is closed hopefully it will stay that way until 39 weeks. I always Hv that fear of going into labor early again. It was w my third at 35 wk and I had low iron, wasn't gaining weight, and just felt tired. This one I feel pretty good. his head is leaning to my left hip bone so I don't feel the pressure right now. It is so odd how every pregnancy is different.

sher-baby - 2 days ago
That's good news, but hopefully ur test comes back with good results!! And there's nothing to feel embarrassed about!!! We got all kinds of 'stuff' going on...DH and I were at the grocery store and I had bit of a sneeze attack, but with every sneeze, I peed a bit!!! Uugh! I was like 'WTH!!!' I told DH..' Look if this continues I'm gonna wet my pants and have to wait for u in the car!' NOW THATS embarrassing!!! lol

lexy-b - 2 days ago
Oh & I'm measuring more like 33 weeks not 30 weeks which was a bit of a shock but she said it's my 3rd so it's not uncommon.

lexy-b - 2 days ago
Just an update on my 'rectal pressure' lol so embarrasing - I had my routine OB appointment & she checked my cervix which looked great but ordered a Fetal Fibronectin test. She said the babies head is where it should be so she's not sure if it's because of his position but wants me to take the test because that kind of pressure is a sign of preterm labour. I go on Monday, still feeling the pressure but not as bad. Hopefully it's nothing but better safe than sorry.

sher-baby - 3 days ago
Haha@ pornstar boob!!! That's one thing I'm not looking forward too!! I had a perfect breast reduction in 2010, and I'm not to happy with the fact that they will be soo large again. It's all worth it but I will deff have another reduction if they don't go back down to a decent size.

sher-baby - 3 days ago
Ya u remember my daughter falling asleep quick too....that was an issue I had also. But I thought it was kind of normal...we'll see! This lil guy doesn't seem to sleep so I'm curious to see if it will be the same after birth.

babylove5 - 3 days ago
Machala I know what you mean. Some women have sensitive nipples and I am one of them. The lactation consultant got on my nerves saying it shouldn't hurt. It hurt even when they were doing everything exactly perfect. My 2nd son was excellent at breastfeeding. When he would drain the boob he would shake his head side to side w my nipple in his mouth trying to get more. The longer you do it they stop being as sensitive. My 3rd son was lazy and would fall asleep after 5 min of nursing it was a struggle to keep him awake.

lexy-b - 3 days ago
Nursing did not come natural to me or my babies. I think it took at least 4-6 weeks until me & babies got onto it. I was shocked when my milk came in, hurt like heck & could not get over the porn star boobs haha.

machalaB - 3 days ago
More power to you mommas with breastfeeding..i tried with my daughter but it hurt like crap, felt as if my nipples were being ripped off..maybe i was doin it wrong. I plan on bottle feeding with my lil guy tho.

sher-baby - 3 days ago
Ya my milk took a lot of time to first come in and I was sooo stressed!!! Plus she was only 5lb11oz to start with, so when she started loosing weight and not plumping back up, I was scared!!! Then my drs were scaring me saying 'you need to supplement...you need to supplement...' I was like 'OK FINE....' So I did. And I think that also helped to reduce my supply. So this time!!! No stress!!! No supplementing!!! I'm bringing my pump to the hospital so I can nurse and pump like crazy and hope my supply comes in faster. And my daughter was good at breast feeding...I didn't have any latching issues, it wasn't painful....she was a natural! I hope this one is good too. If not, I'll make like a cow and pump, pump, pump! Lol

babylove5 - 3 days ago
I agree it can be stressful. With my first born I was so upset when my milk came in 3 days later and I was in horrible pain. I had no idea it would hurt so bad but i was engorged. She wouldn't latch on well and I was to immature at the time to help her. I wrapped my boobs up tight to try and stop the milk. I was not prepared at all for the trials of motherhood but she survived....lol With all my sons I did breastfeed and pump. I only had one I enjoyed breastfeeding because he was very good at breastfeeding. The rest of them it took a while for them to be quick and drain the breast.

sher-baby - 4 days ago
That's what I was thinking too lexy...maybe it's the way he/she's facing. If he/She's facing your font, you will deff feel more pressure towards ur back end! Let us know what ur dr says tomorrow

babylove5 - 4 days ago
Lexy the only time I had really really bad back pain was when I went into sudden labor w my 3 rd and he was facing the wrong way. They are suppose to be face down but he was born face up and the pain was insane! Spinning babies. Com tells about how they rotate in the womb.

sher-baby - 4 days ago
Well that's my 'plan' of attack! I hope I can commit to it, but breast feeding on it's own I found very stressful with my daughter. This time I will not settle for any substitutes tho!!! I will not use formula! No matter how much my drs pressure me. I feel tired but not abnormally tired I think...my dr said in about a week of taking the supplements I should feel like a million bucks!! That would be a nice feeling considering I've felt like royal crap over the last few weeks!

babylove5 - 4 days ago
Sher that is called commitment!!! I am impressed at your determination. I am only planning on every 3 hours and pump if the baby doesn't empty the breast. Did you feel tired w your low iron? I had that with my second son. I take iron daily in my vitamin but I don't eat red meat except twice a year.

sher-baby - 4 days ago
Haha!!! I know the feeling! I've caved and put the clothes we've bought in the dresser just to kinda make space and organize (and to satisfy my urge...ha!) but I'll wait until after the shower to wash everything and put it all back.

mandykat760 - 4 days ago
I keep getting the urge to wash the clothes and blankets but why. I'll just have to do them again haha.

lexy-b - 4 days ago
I get a lot BH contractions but no real increase since this started - probably about the same but I can feel it kind of in my back a little more. I'm thinking it's just the baby's position but I didn't have this type of pressure in that spot with my last 2 babies. It was always more to the front. Baby is moving around lots too which is a good sign. I think I'm just going to wait it out if it doesn't get worse.

sher-baby - 4 days ago
Lexy-are u noticing more BH's or contractions at all?? If not, I would think ur baby could just be getting down into it's position, and maybe that's why ur feeling the sudden pressure in ur butt

lexy-b - 4 days ago
TMI alert but is anyone feeling a lot of pressure in their butt/rectum. I have had the normal pressure like a bowling ball down there but now I'm starting to feel really uncomfortable & it's more in my 'butt' then in my lady parts. I have an OB appointment tomorrow & this started yesterday. Should I be worried?

sher-baby - 4 days ago
Babylove- I watched this youtube video of this woman who vlogged about how she pump oz.'s upon oz.'s of breast milk and she said for the the first 3 months she pumped everything 2hrs, no matter what! Would wake up and pump every 2hrs..!!! Her baby was in the NICU for a while so she couldn't 'breast feed'. I don't think I can do that BUT I'm going to give it a shot!! I wanna breast feed for atleast a year but I want a frozen stash to last for atleast another 6months after I stop breast feeding. My plan of attack is to pump while nursing (so pump left while nurse the right, then switch) then pump both for about 10-15mins after nursing, taking fenugreek and oatmeal every morning...and drink gatoraid!!

sher-baby - 4 days ago
Machala- ur good! I wish I had the power to embrace any and all my weight gain!! I'm far to self conscious about my body to NOT worry about my weight!! But it stresses me out sometimes! I wish I was more relaxed about it, but instead it causes a lil anxiety!!! Ugh!!!

babylove5 - 4 days ago
For those of you that are going to breastfeed, do you feed every 3 hours or on demand? I know the first week you Hv to do on demand but I always like to put them on a schedule.

babylove5 - 4 days ago
Sher I have already washed all the clothes and blankets and put them up.

sher-baby - 4 days ago
Our dresser got delivered today and I'm trying sooooo hard not to nest and put all my baby clothes in it!!!! Ugh!!! It sooo hard to fight the urge!!! Lol I feel like an addict!

sher-baby - 4 days ago
I too am hoping for a good supply. I feel the let down feeling occasionally and I've noticed a yellowish/white discharge from my breast but not a leak! I started stocking up in fenugreek to start taking to help my supply. I'm actually putting it in my hospital bag so I can start taking them right after birth.

floydianslip2 - 4 days ago
I still need a lot too… car seat, diapers, baby bath, bottles, all of the little odds and ends! Babylove, I haven’t had any leaking yet. Last time I started around 29 weeks, so I’m a little concerned that it hasn’t started yet. I’m hoping for a really good supply and while I’m sure that leaking now has nothing to do with supply, it would sure make me feel better to see some sort of activity! I guess soon enough, I’ll just have to keep watching and waiting, lol!

machalaB - 4 days ago
30 weeks! Whoop! Ive hit 178lbs, not complaining but this is how much i was weighing when i delivered my diva. N i have 10 weeks to go before my guy is due ...hope u ladys are well....

sher-baby - 4 days ago
So I've gained 7lbs in 4weeks!!! Gosh!!! Good news is baby is head down and I passed my sugar test!! Whoo hoo!!! Bad news is my blood count and iron level is low....so inorder to avoid a blood transfusion afterbirth, I need to also add an iron supplement to my prenatal vitamins! Yikes!! He said within a week u should feel more energetic too but it's mainly to make sure I'm ok after birth...fun!!

babylumpp2015 - 4 days ago
I need just about everything for baby too, I managed to get a car seat so I feel much better that that is out of the way, now to just find out how to make it fit in my car with the other 2 I already have, should be fun!!! I've somehow lost 6lbs in a week, doctor was not impressed as I was suppose to gain at least 2 but I've been running around like a crazy woman with my other kids and working so im always on my feet and it's hard to 'rest' like he keeps telling me. Go for another ultrasound next week to check in on little Emma. I haven't had a baby over 5lb 11oz so I'm use to having tiny babies. My first pregnancy I gained 45lbs my second I was much more careful with what I ate & gained alottle over 30 and so far this one is at 18 so we will see how much this little one weighs soon enough!

babylove5 - 4 days ago
I felt the let down sensation again last night and looked to see if it was my imagination. I have one boob producing clear and one producing yellow and white milk or colostrum. Just a drop but It's good to see. I just wonder why one is different.

babylove5 - 4 days ago
Sher as long as you have diapers, wipes, destin, and back up formula if you want a break from breast feeding at night you will be doing good. Floy that's great he's almost 4 pounds. I feel like mine is 4 at minimum. I have 3 newborn outfits packed for the hospital. They only go up to 8 pounds so he better fit in one of them.. Lol

sher-baby - 5 days ago
Well I still need...everything!! Lol we didn't realize until we did the registry that we need a boat load! Ugh!! Hopefully our friends and family are generouse at our shower...lol is that bad to say?? Lol

floydianslip2 - 5 days ago
Well, I had my apt today, everything looks great! I’m measuring about a week ahead, and little man is 3lbs 13 oz and is in the 55th percentile. She said at this rate I’m probably looking at a 7 ½ pounder, but we’ll see! I’m super happy because my BP looks great, the medication is really keeping it in check. And the best part is the u/s tech did a 3D for us, so we got to see what he looks like (from the nose down, he had his arms crossed across the top half of his face).

RJean - 5 days ago
I am measuring 3 weeks behind...the doc aet me up with an us in a couple of weeks, but the wait is excruciating. I'm usually not too much of a worrier, but pregnancy hormones always ratchet up my anxiety lol. On a happy note, I only have to buy a new car seat and stroller and then I am done with buying everything hurrah!

sher-baby - 5 days ago
I'm feeling better today...finally!! Omg...yesterday was tough! I was measuring a little small with my daughter and turns out she was small...there wasn't really any explanation as to why. I wasn't sick it dealing with severe m/s...she was just little, in the 10th percentile. Now she's in the 80th-90th percentile!!! I get weighed tomorrow...I'm thinking I've gained around 25lbs min! At my last appt I was 157...I better not be more than 165!!! I prob will cry if I am!!! I'm also going to ask about the baby's position. I feel him all over the place, like I'm a human bouncy castle!! I have nooo clue if he's head down or what!!! If my dr can't figure it out, he may send me for another u/s...we shall see!

babylove5 - 5 days ago
My baby is measuring BIG in the 80 th or 90 th percentile but I know he will come out the right size. I always gain the most in the second tri. The last tri I tend to not gain much and the baby evens out, so I don't think he will be over 8 pounds. I had one pregnancy I only gained 9 pounds and he was healthy but I was just doing to much. He was born at 35 weeks. This time I'm right on target 23 pounds....ugh

RJean - 5 days ago
Is anyone else measuring small? I am way behind this pregnancy and totally freaking out. I never thought I would be so worried about not being able to gain weight and not getting bigger, but I am super freaked out. I always had the problem of gaining too much for my other too pregnancies....arg.

babylove5 - 6 days ago
Lol sher you crack me up girl! Just wait you will be so uncomfortable in about 5 weeks. You can do it just think how healthy your lil man will be! I Hv no hot water heater they are replacing it now and it will cost 1300.00 ugh that's a lot of money!

sher-baby - 6 days ago
Oh god save me!!! I'm sooooo uncomfortable today! Like....soooooooo uncomfortable!!!! I hope u ladies are doing a butt load better than I am!

babylove5 - 6 days ago
I know what you mean only 9 more weeks and they will be in our arms. I will miss feeling him kick and the peace and quiet. I guess I should try to enjoy it while he is still inside my tummy.

spacystaci - 6 days ago
10 Weeks....love being pregnant and feeling my baby boy move around, also love meeting our sweet babies!! Mixed Feelings!

babylove5 - 6 days ago
What is with all the nosebleeds? It is odd but I feel like it's all the extra blood from pregnancy. Either that or I Hv really dry air, so much for my new white silk pillow case. I went shopping and I saw some pregnant women thats bump made my baby look small.
