Last one My last pregnancy I got some pretty intense BH's really early on too, they had me worried for a bit but seemed to settle down. This time has been the same, bub has moved up past my belly button this week and I think is putting pressure on my diaphragm, every time a BH hits it feels tight to breathe, but if past pregnancies are anything to go by it'll settle down in a few weeks once everything has moved up and out of the way. If bub is being overly active she sets them off too. I know with my last pregnancy even being able to walk while having a BH was difficult, really not looking forward to that stage again!


Thanks so much Mic...I have been getting them still, sometimes more intense than others, but with them being very irregular Im not as concerned as I would be if they were every 15 mins...
My baby is very very active! goodness knows what the little one is doing in there lol.
I guess even subsequent pregnancies are scary when you experience different things!
This pregnancy has been so much different than any others!

QUOTE (Megan! @ 05/02/2012, 10:27 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
I bought the Preggi Bellies DVD & have loved doing the workout!
It's a combination of cardio - which is done whilst sitting on a fit ball, toning and stretches. My thighs/bum were burning after the first time using it - which I thought was great because it's working the labour muscles.
The whole program was designed by Physiotherapists who specialise in prenatal exercise. There are also options to do easier or harder versions of the steps so you can decide what suits you best depending on your fitness level and energy.
It's available from Rebel Sport and they have a website if you want to check it out:

This looks awesome Megan! I might check it out too original.gif Thanks

Hi ladies

Well I have been away on holidays for 2 weeks so sorry am not even going to attempt any personals!

Welcome Jo&co, best wishes for a smooth pregnancy!

Have had a wonderful relaxing time off and enjoyed having DH around to help with the boys. He is fantastic and practically did all meals, nappy changes etc, so I had a good break from the kids which is what I needed...and my belly is really starting to pop out now (will have to take another photo to add to the bump thread), but that may also be the extra food consumed  original.gif

Have our morph scan in 2 days and booking in appt at the hospital next week, so reality is setting in! We don't plan to find out the sex either so will be a nice surprise at the birth.

Hope you are all travelling well, and big congrats to pink survivor!

Hi, I did the Aquanatal class on Saturday and also loved it, so will definitely keep that up. You don't realise how heavy you feel until you get out if the water. I am in Sydney so mine isn't the one in forde.

I am feeling massive! And definitely look like I did at 7 months in previous pregnancies. I'm catching up with a friend who is 36 weeks pregnant with her first baby. I'm curious to do a comparison. I reckon we will look about the same gestation.

stella777 - I am jealous about your holiday. I'm actually thinking of taking off for a weekend on my own. I think it's the only way I will get a decent rest anytime soon. Mind you I slept all afternoon yesterday which was great!

elmo_mum: welcome home!

Just a quick one for Ruth, yep I do aqua mummas at Forde. I originally sent them an email and never heard back, so called a couple of times until I got someone. Basically you can just show up on Monday or Thursday evenings at 6.35pm, pay your $15 and climb on into the pool. There seems to be different people in the class each week, but i have short dark curly hair, so if you see me say hello (my real name is Shannon!). I have been going on thursdays but am going to swap to Monday's as I start a yoga class on Thursday's this week. I highly recommend the class, just like newyearbaby said, it feels like a weight off (until you climb back out afterwards, when you realis just how much weight you're actually carrying around each day now!).

hey guys!

seems like days i haven't caught up on here!

congrats to pink survivor!!!!!!!!!  so happy for you and everybody else having their healthy pregnancies

for me, i been so tired cause bub has been kicking and kicking all night (thought i was dreaming but woke up and it was bub kicking me lol).

yesterday did the morphology scan at 20 weeks and i am having a little girl (my partner a bit disappointed but so happy now lol but i knew bub was going to be a girl right from my first scan!).  the sonographer commented that she has a fat tummy, very long legs and long arms lol...no wonder why i can feel her kicks soo much!

the sonographer says she is a big baby and maybe i am 21 weeks instead!  my dates keeps on changing but i am sticking to my first scan date.

i don't look that big for 5 months probably cause my skinny frame and my partner is wondering why i haven't gained so much weight like some other pregnant women.

alvarywinters

The only way to join now is to PM myself of Alvarywinters, we will then have to add you as a friend to add you to the group, once you are added to the group we can delete you from being our friend.  Hope this clears everything up and hope to see you in the group soon original.gif

I am battling migraines at the moment, a on day 3 so I apologise in advance if I don't get to your PM straight away EB is a pain to access on my phone and usually doesn't let me post or PM anyone back, despite the fact it takes half an hour to load!  I am making sure I get to a computer every 2 days though. Thanks for your understanding original.gif

been missing in action for awhile.

week 22/23 and feeling huge. I have out on 10 kilos even though I have not been eating too much. I sure can feel it in my back.

My morning sickness still comes about once or twice a week but nothing as bad as the first 16 weeks.

Feeling lots of movement have been since 16 weeks which is much earlier than my last pregnancy.

Bought a second hand mountain buggy and a few bits and pieces but still need heaps more!

Where in sydney are the aqua classes?

#138 newyearbaby

Posted 07 February 2012 - 04:58 PM

Hi kittycat1, the aquanatal classes are in Alexandria (near Bunnings if that means anything to you). They also have some in Caringbah I think.

http://sydney.aquanatal.com.au/

Highly recommend it. I did the Saturday 3.15 class. There are classes through the week as well, which I am going to try to get to as soon as I organise babysitters etc.
