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.

Ugh I forgot completely, since I'm fat I have to have an appointment with the anesthetist tomorrow.. My doctor pretty much said it's BS because I have had successful epidurals before.. But I have to because IM FAAAAAAT. PFFT STUPID. I'm having wicked anxiety about my appointment, because I have gained a lot of weight in the last year (my dad died, and I just binge ate candy to deal with it), so I'm super embarrassed and hate myself and ugh. I don't want some guy touching me, and I don't want to go and I'm sick and not sleeping and HORMONES ARE MAKING ME SO SAD. I hope I'm never pregnant again. I always wanted 4 children, but I think this is it for me. It has nothing to do with not being able to manage kids, it's being pregnant. Horrible experience this time around, and I feel like my body is weak and done. I have a huge lump on my foot, and I don't want an xray right before Halloween saying I can't walk on it.. I want to take my kiddos trick or treating!! Sorry for rambling. Its what I d these days. I want someone to hold my hand through my appointment tomorrow LOL :( BUT NOT THE ANESTHISIOLOGIST .... THAT WOULD BE CREEPY.

Kathy, I get cramping when I run and today my left side cramped here and there but not too bad. Deebo, I can't believe how much you have been going through this pregnancy! You need some kind of prize, like a pedicure or the easiest labor ever. I am feeling for ya!

deebo - 1 days ago
I'm getting wicked cramps, low down, or up one side at a time.. I've yet to get an 'all over' one, but these are painful enough that I can't even stand up straight. I'm avoiding getting my foot xray'd... I don't want a cast. I Have the worst cold ever right now, and I cough until I pee myself almost everyday... LOL!

kathy=^.^= - 2 days ago
Geez I'm in so much pain. The cramping is killing me. I don't think they are contractions but man it hurts anyone else going through this?

lissie**** - 5 days ago
Mel, you are fully effaced though so take it VERY easy girl!!! At least until 32-34 weeks don't do much at all!!! You can dilate super fast once you are effaced. But you are 30 weeks now and if you can just make it another 2-4 weeks it will do wonders for baby! Are you near big hospitals with great NICU? If so then you are in much better situation. Thinking of you!

Juliemom24 - 8 days ago
Lissie, that's what I was thinking. She just posted that on facebook and I thought I was going to die. There is no way that I could do that. Mel90, from what I understand you can be dilated up to a 4 for a really long time so I wouldn't worry too much.

Mel90 - 8 days ago
Had my doctor appointment today n he told me I'm fully effaced and one cm dilated...I wonder how long it would take to get dilated?? Kinda worried

lissie**** - 9 days ago
Wow two weeks! I know my sister actually lost weight during her pregnancy. So your friend must have not gained like most. B/c you can't lose that much fat in 2 weeks. Not possible. If you exercise before during and after you can lose it in about 9 weeks. But you still won't look the same for a while b/c the muscles and tone of your body will take more time to tighten up.

Juliemom24 - 11 days ago
Thanks! On a side note, my friend is down to her pre-pregnancy weight after two weeks. Is that even possible? I'm pretty sure I still looked 6 months pregnant at that point.

lissie**** - 12 days ago
glad your family starting to feel better!

Juliemom24 - 12 days ago
It was a total fluke (or miracle) because I'm back to not running. Monday I made it a third of a mile before cramping up and having to stop. I haven't done anything the rest of the week because my sweet little toddler has been throwing up for days. It's so sad. I think we're starting to see the sunlight again today through the clouds, thank goodness. Being sick is no fun!

lissie**** - 13 days ago
that is amazing!!!

Juliemom24 - 17 days ago
30 weeks today!!! WOHOO! To make it even better I was able to, by some miracle, run FOUR miles this morning. Ok, jog but still, I was only able to make it a 1/4 of a mile on Monday before cramping up so I was one happy girl! Oh, and I weighed myself this afternoon. 28 lbs so far.

Juliemom24 - 17 days ago
Lissie. Bless you. You are a sweetheart! I'll get the plane tickets;)

lissie**** - 17 days ago
aw I'd throw you a baby shower ;) It's your first boy!

Juliemom24 - 18 days ago
I may or may not have bought four adorable outfits for my little guy today. I don't feel too bad about it because I think there is a very small chance I'll have a baby shower here. I don't know too many people yet. He still needs so many things though. I'm sure as the time gets closer the gaps will be filled.

lissie**** - 20 days ago
I have been buying clothes here and there. I found out some ladies are going to throw me a baby shower as I haven't had a girl in almost 7 years--I didn't think they needed to do that but it will be just a small gathering and gifts/treats--no games etc. //letroise// that is too bad you gave away the 3 year olds clothes! I have given away clothing too but not all of it. //juliesmom// thank you! Still haven't heard back about the GD test results so I'm assuming everything is normal!

letroise11 - 20 days ago
My husband and I have decided to wait till November to see what we still need. It's defiantly more stressful having a baby so close to the holidays. I'm still kicking myself for giving all of my three year olds stuff away.

Juliemom24 - 20 days ago
Good luck Lissie. They told me the results before I left the office thankfully. This new office is a lot different than my old one. I am def in nesting mode. I just want to buy baby clothes ALL the time... My sister was good to remind me that I still have two and a half months left but my body is going into overdrive.

lissie**** - 21 days ago
I don't know my results of the glucose test yet--but soon. I had the test yesterday.

lissie**** - 21 days ago
You are still putting in a lot of hours! My body is just getting to the point the past couple of weeks I really can't do what I used too. But I try. awkwardly I might add.

lissie**** - 21 days ago
Lol my body is getting there too!

letroise11 - 21 days ago
My glucose was fine but the doctors assistant keeps telling me that my iron is little low. That lady is crazy if she really thinks I'm taking those horrible iron pills. I've had a lot of cramping and contractions but I'm still working 45-50 hours a week😑. We will all be done in just the next few months and as for me this is hopefully my last. I feel to old to keep having babies.

lissie**** - 22 days ago
finally I'm 30 weeks! I'm having my glucose test in a little bit!

lissie**** - 22 days ago
oh adorable! puppies!

lissie**** - 22 days ago
I am extra crampy too. Not even when I run (had to quit that early on boo). I'm impressed you've been running this long that's great!

Juliemom24 - 22 days ago
I think that my body is finally done with running for the remainder of this pregnancy. I made it 1/4 of a mile before I started cramping. I had a beautiful walk though. Looks like I need to join a gym and do some low impact exercises.

Juliemom24 - 22 days ago
Awesome Letroise! Your kiddos must be so excited!

letroise11 - 22 days ago
So my dog gave birth last Wednesday. So we will be raising puppies for the remained of this pregnancy. At least it will keep my mind off the third trimester issues. Hope everyone is well.

jojo - 53 days ago
Good luck with everything. . Hope your lil girl stays put a few more weeks. . Fingers crossed x

ASergeantsWife - 53 days ago
Ladies, I had two positive Fetal Fibronectin tests with Jackson and he waited until week 37 so keep your hopes up. Stress can cause contractions. Not too much longer now :)

ASergeantsWife - 53 days ago
Yeah! We made it to 30 weeks! onward and forward! Found out this week that I have cholestasis so they will probably be taking Maleiya at 36 or 37 weeks. The itching has been extreme but thankfully is under control now with medication.

matoks - 54 days ago

jojo - 56 days ago
Hey twinny I am so with you.. I'm off work and yesterday and Mon I've been absolutely exhausted. . And I haven't done anything! To top it off I have just had the worst nights sleep so far.. I've been up all night with acid reflux.. awful :( :( :( I last saw the clock at 3.33am but was back awake by 6.30am.. I'm gonna be one grumpy bum today!! :(

bonitadiane - 63 days ago
Hello week 30. Wow, 10 more to go.

afshanm07 - 69 days ago
Week 30 im so scard of delivery now of contractions and all that again

glowingwith2 - 69 days ago
WOW! You must be due to drop any day. I sure wish I would.... last night I woke up choking because of my heartburn! I only had salad for dinner too! Crazy! I had my first 2 week appointment today. I haven't gained any weight in two weeks! Woohoo! My total weight gain is now at 27lbs though. Trying really hard to stay within 35 pounds by the end. I know that will be difficult considering baby alone will put on around 4 pounds between now and 'D' day.

Blondeabby - 69 days ago
Fundal height is measuring 6 weeks ahead. At 29 weeks was measuring at 35 weeks.

glowingwith2 - 70 days ago
Blonde, that is crazy! Are they saying the baby is measuring that far ahead, or your uterus height is? My ultrasounds keep saying that the baby is a week ahead. I've adjusted my due date, but the doc said he wouldn't change my due date unless the baby was showing being 2 weeks or more ahead. Last day in 30 weeks for me. Almost to the 8 month mark!!

Blondeabby - 71 days ago
Can't believe week 30! Last week at the ob I was measuring 6 weeks ahead! How does that happen? I go for an ultrasound Friday. I am also having a lot of pain at the top of my belly:( I am really scared...why am I measuring so big?

mammaramirez - 79 days ago
tomorrow I'll be 31 weeks!!!!! 5 more days and I get to see my baby's chunky face at our 3D ultrasound and so happy that hubby will be able to go as well!

msjenn727 - 82 days ago
This week went by pretty fast! Tomorrow i will be 31 weeks :)

msjenn727 - 83 days ago
I failed my 1 hr glucose test, now i have to take the 3 hr test!

mammaramirez - 86 days ago
30 weeks tomorrow!!! 10 more to go!!!!!!!

msjenn727 - 88 days ago
I can't believe i'm finally 30 weeks! I can almost see the finish line lol :)

leanbean - 89 days ago
Been getting busier and busier! I guess it'll make things fly even faster! :) I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing! LORI~ How fun! MOMIIB~ No fun with all the Braxton hicks! Hope they ease up until 40 weeks for you! Let us know how your results turn up.

MOMIIB - 91 days ago
That great loriandrichie! Off to 31wks tomorrow. Had to go to OB yesterday bc I have been having pretty bad BH the last 3 days. NST was good and I am not dilated any. Still measuring ahead at 34 wks :-/ baby is big and super low causing alot of discomfort. They sent off culture to see if I will go into labor the next 2 weeks, Hopefully that does not come back Positive. Should have results by Friday hopefully. I really need him to bake until 40wks. We are still in the process of selling/buying our house and there is much left up in the air right now :-( hopefully it will all work out! :-)
