OMG!! finally a BFP! when is my due date?
Q: OMG im so excited to finally get a BFP. after 18 months of negatives, im finally positive. my last period was jan 30th. i had implantation bleeding on feb 15th. i should be due in october but im not exactly sure how they count up your due date. this will be our first child. I feel like since i found out(sat) i have been more aware of how much i use my stomach muscles and keep thinking im going to hurt the baby if i use my muscles too much, lol im sure im just overreacting but like i said, this is the first time ive ever been pregnant so i dont know what to expect. Could any of you please help me out and give me a few heads ups as to what i should expect during pregnancy. so far i havent had morning sickness or any weird cravings but im sure its coming. Thanks to all of you that read my questions on here month after month and gave me lots of baby dust.my birthday is oct 29th so that would be a great bday present.Baby dust to all that are TTC!!
A: Well to start not all woman get morning sickness. I have 2 boys and I never had any sickness with them. I did cramp in the beginning like mild period cramps and tended to get more pain on one side. You may not get all the symptoms and every pregnancy is different. I will share with you my experiences for both pregnancies.Pregnancy #1 - mild cramps, light bleeding, @ 20 weeks had some bleeding and got checked at ER in the hospital. Turbed out it was just some change in my cervix but baby was fine. Only thing I craved was chocolate----I gained 80lbs!!!Yes, that's right 80lbs. Had on and off mood swings but just to hubby...lol. Had a couple ultrasounds but more closer to the end as we thought he was going to be over 10lbs. Dr suggested c-section and also had some medical problems as well. Around 36 weeks he was laying on my sciatic nerve and I couldn't walk. Had to use a cain. I had a scheduled c-section so I never got to experience the whole going into labout part. He was born at 38 weeks. His due date was Apr 25/06 but had him Apr 13/06. My son hd his cord wrapped aroundhis neck twice so my dr said I probably would have ended up having a c-section anyways so lucky for that. My incision got infected and had home care for 6 months. I breastfed the whole time until he was 9 months. He self weaned so that was nice. Oh and we chose to find out the sex and we also got the 4D u/s sound. It's so neat to see the baby like that and we could tell the sex then....he had an erection...lol.Pregnancy #2- Just had my other son 7 months ago. Same mild cramping and at 13 weeks I also bled a bit and went to hospital, baby was fine. I have a introverted uterus so not sure if that caused it. Anyways, I craved Pepsi like there was no tomorrow. I bought the caffine free one as you want to limit your caffine intake. Just felt a bit different with this pregnancy. Was more tired. I couldn't eat much as it made me sick. I had really BAD heartburn with him. I was constantly eating tums or drinking milk. Since I had the infection I was scheduled for another c-section which I didn't mind. His due date was Aug 21/08 and I was scheduled for c-section Aug 19/08. From about 37 weeks I lost my mucus plug which I hadn't experienced with my first son. It was nasty snot like thing. Actually iy came out in pieces. I was also having cramps. Around Aug 14 I went to the hospital as the cramps were so bad. Wasn't sure if it was contractions or not. It was just some bad Braxton Hicks and was sent home. On Aug 16 went back as the pains were worse and they gave me some pain meds as I was not dialted and they sent me home. I could not sleep the whole 2 days and was so tired. I timed the contractions and they were random like 5-8 min apart. So the next morning on Aug 17/08 I went back tio the hospital as I thought my water broke but it didn't. Ended up in that day I was dialted 2 cm and was 100 effaced. So they did the c-section that day. All went fine with the surgery and he is now 7 months. Time flies by. Hope I shared enough with you and if you want more then message me back.
potenial law suit?MY DELIVERY STORY?
Q: Is this malpractice my delivery story?So I had my son 4 months ago, and i had the worst birthing experience ever!!!!After 20 HRS of labor it ended in a C-Section.....I had a 9lb 3oz boy :O)My issue is during labor my epdiural wore off, I was given torid for pain, and from my understanding that is Motrin in the IV, however it was requested by ongyn that it be given around the clock. Hours after delivery my epdiural was still numbing my legs but it wore off in the incision area of where my c-section was. I was is serious pain to the point where i couldnt even breastfeed my son. I couldnt move my arms or abdominal area non what so ever. I kept complaining to the nurse whom stated that i was fine and there was nothing should give me for pain, because i wasnt due for medicine, anyhow this went on for hours. During my pregnancy i was diagnosed with Gestational Diabete, and had a pretty tuff pregnancy and resulted in fetal monitoring in my last trimester twice a week. Prior to pregnancy i was on pain management due to a rare muscle disorder, however when i became pregnant i stopped smoking, stopped taking pain medicine and stopped drinking my dunkin donuts coffee :O( well I couldnt figure out why my nurse was so mean to me and tellingme to deal with the pain, she told me i am going to have to get over myself and get over it, she was so belittleing and i just didnt know why, well whne shift changed my new nurse came in with the same attitude and dispostion, and agin i was exhausted from birth, tired and in pain, and over whelmed with the way iwas being treated. So after complaining a young doctor comes in to re-evaluate and talk to me about my pain, at this point i was trying to tell him how bad it hurt how my epdiural had wore off and only my legs were numb and how my stomach was on fire, he then has the nurse bring me 5mlg hydrocodone. Well it took the edge off a little but it just wasnt doing the trick, so the nurse was tellingme i needed to get up and walk around. I told her i am not getting out of this bed and she said you are going to get out of that bed, suck it up. I cried i was in pain, and at this point my mil and sil had come to visit. Well the doc who prescribed the meds came back in and asked me in front of them about my pain and asked me if i took pain medication at home? Well i answered "no", and didnt think much of it, well another 1/2 hour goes by and he come back and asked my mil and sil to leave the room and they did!!!!!! Well he proceeds to ask me how much pain medication i have abused while pregnant, and how often i have i taken it, again i answered i dont take pain medication, and then he said well i need to know how much pain medication you have used while pregnant with your son!!!!! That pissed me off and hurt my feelings, because at that point i realized these people think i am a drug addict.So i told him i didnt like where this conversation was going and asked where all this was coming from...His answer was " well you history shows that prior to pregnancy you were taking pain medication and prescribed 5 mlg oxycodone for pain, and when i asked you if you took pain medication at home you said "no". I was livid...i said i thought you ment while pregnant when you asked that earlier and my answer was no. I said call my obgyn, ask him how many time i called him during this pregnancy to see what i can and could take. I told him i didnt take tylenol or anything!!!Well he left and i was crying and i called my husband and my parents and explained the situation. My family came up and i thought my dad was going to kill this guy! The doctor said " Irealized after i left from speaking to your daughter that she was not a drug addict. I also told him while he was in the room if you dont believe me check my babys blood and see what is in his system......The doctor then proceeded to tell my father that he didnt realize but i had only been given motrin and 1-5 mlg hydrocodone in 12 hours and i indeed was in pain, and he would get me comfortable. In the mean time i was in the room flipping out crying, i was devistated because it hurt my feelings that these people could be so mean and accuse me of being an addict when i indeed was never addicted to anything. Even when i had pain management i never took my meds unless i needed to. Well after the incident the rest of my stay i was still treated poorly by my nurses and let alone the nurse who was taking care of me neglected me she never gave me water or never brought me the formula i asked for because iwas to sore to feed my son, she treated me terrible. Is this a potential law suit. I dont want money i just need to make a point that these people shouldnt treat others like this. Every time i am asked about the labor of my son it makes me sad that someone could think of me like that, it hurts my feelings that my memory is ruined and unenjoyable I live in Maryland and I delivered at Franklin Square Hospital in BaltimorePippin--I think it was Toradol, and the point was I was given this right after delivery....i went twelve hours after delivery with nothing. I am a bf'g mother and i needed formula because i was in too much pain to nurse and couldnt hold my son. My point is they judged my character treated me like crap, and assumed something based on prior medical report, however i suffer from a muscle disorder that causes my muscle to deteroriate in my blood stream, i am excersixe intollerant, and this is why my labor was 20 hours trying to avoid surgery due to muscle injury and trama. Your answers was rude, and i dont appreciate it. Nurses and Doctors should do there home work before they treat people like shitttttttt!!!!!!
A: O my god you have every right to bring a lawsuit against these incompatent idiots. How dare they accuse you of being a drug addict, do not let this go. Not only that they could not even get the pain relief right. As for pippin, how would she feeel if she was treated like this after giving birth? Its emotionel enough after giving birth without nurses and doctors treating you this way, and just imagine she is a top contributer how laughable.Good luck to you hunny and i hope you get the result you want.

A: While it doesn't sound like a very enjoyable experience, I really don't see anything that would be grounds for a lawsuit. You certainly don't have grounds because the nurses were mean. That's just a fact of life sometimes. As far as the whole drug addict thing, I understand why it pissed you off at the time, but I'm not sure why you continued to be so upset about it after the fact. I mean, it was simply a misunderstanding- he made assumptions based on your past medication history and you misunderstood what he meant by a question he asked which caused him to believe you were lying. It was unfortunate, but hardly earth-shattering. The only thing that possibly presents itself for a claim is the medication mix-up which caused you unnecessary pain. But honestly, even if awarded a settlement, it would be small and probably not even worth the time it took to win it. Just move on and enjoy your life with your son.
