Heather & Amber, I've had the cramping like this, well somewhat at least, during my cycle, but the back pain is what is getting me. I've never had the pain like this. Did any of you have the lower back pain early on???

Heather, on the dress issue, I would've told you to do just what the lady told you. My mom is seamstress & when it comes to weddings dresses, bridesmaids dresses etc, her advice is to always buy the next size or even 2, up from what you think you are. Not to mention, those dresses always run SMALL!!!!! I am a size 10, but my wedding dress was a 12 & it fit me almost too snug. Any good seamstress can always take a dress down to any size, but they clearly can not add to the fabric ya know? Well, except for in my sister's case. LOL For my 1st wedding, my sister was about 8 months prego. They did not have a dress big enough to fit her. So we bought 2 smaller dresses & my mom used the 2nd dress to sew in "panels" on the side to make the dress fit her belly. That woman is a Goddess when it comes to the sewing machine I tell ya. LOL I would say maybe even order an 18 just in case your (o)(o)'s are bigger than your bottom half due to milk etc.

Good luck lady!!!!!! :)

hahaha thanks Jilly, I don't think the boobs will need more than the 16 though! I'm not exactly filling out the 14 in the chest region as it is these days, so I'm counting on the milk helping me out in the boobage department anyway :p

As it is, the size 14 bust is 41 inches and pre-baby I was 38", and currently 6 1/2 months pregnant wearing a full padded bra I'm only a 40 1/2" so the 43" bust the 16 offers should be more than adequate!

I was just concerned about the seamstress only being able to take the dress in a certain amount before it started to lose the style of the dress. When I got married I was instructed to buy a size 18, even though I was a 10 at the time - turns out, I should have ordered smaller as my seamstress had to take 2 1/2" off each side of the zipper in my bodice just to make it fit around me - and she lectured me about how it was almost too big, and that if I had been any smaller, she would not have been able to make it work.

... perhaps it's different with boning though... or my seamstress was just a cranky pants who didn't want more work than necessary :p

It sounds to me like she was an old hag who just did not want to do her job! :wink:

I have watched my Mom do AMAZING things with fabric for little or no money. There will be a special place in Heaven for that lady! :D

We've all been super busy, yikes! Mark and I went to see the Dark Knight Rises last night (awesome). Baby Dragon was kicking from the moment the previews started, I guess it must've been pretty loud for her in there!

We have Mark's parents and youngest sister coming to stay with us tomorrow for the rest of the week. I'm excited, but pretty burned out on having visitors. Cleaning and cooking for days before their arrival, and then cleaning up after they leave...it's just exhausting. Mark's Dad is going to help us frame the basement for the extra bedrooms (we want two more spare rooms for guests) we've been planning, so their visit will be a very busy one. Friday my SIL, BIL, and their 3 kids will arrive to join in the fun. I'll pretty much be in my kitchen non-stop! Eh, it'll be worth it in the end, our family will be helping us so much by doing this, so I've gotta do my part by feeding them! :D

Jilly, I don't remember cramping at 5 or 6 DPO, but definitely did around 14-21 DPO when Dragon really burrowed in. But that's just me, rubbing my belly for you, sending baby dust!

I've been inspired to make a few maternity diy tops from men's t-shirts - I'm starting to find that I'm running out of things to wear these days (what with constantly spilling things on my belly and all...)

If anyone has any cute and easy tutorials - send em my way!!!

I have a sewing machine that MIL snagged for me from a neighbor at a garage sale, but I have yet to even open it... so I don't know what I"m up against. (I do know how to sew... but basically only on my mom's singer sewing machine... to be honest sewing machines scare the crap out of me, I can never seem to thread that damn needle right!)

I've been doing some baby spending!!!

I bought this:

https://www.etsy.com/transaction/88497401?utm_source=transaction&utm_medium=trans_email&utm_campaign=purchase_buyer

and some fabric for the baby's curtains! I wanted the vintage pink in this design, but it's been out of stock for 2 months, so I just opted for the purple instead - the walls will be grey, and it still matches so I'm happy with it (and Ben's relieved - he hates pink :p):

Heather how exciting! We need to start buying. More...All we have is the stroller/car seat and clothes...I feel like I'm so behind but I've been SOo tired I haven't had the energy or motivation to shop or work on the room. I feel horrible for it too....we got the room almost completely cleaned out it just needs a little more work. This is our last week off of worm and we don't have anything done from our to do list! It freaks me out every day but I still can't pull myself to.get anything done! Anyone have any advise to get out of this slump?

Kymbr - 2 cup sizes!!!! Here's hoping!!! As it is I think I"m going to cry when my boobs sink back down to pre-baby size! I've really gotten used to them to the point where if feels like they've always been this size I can't imagine myself without them! At the best of times I'm all butt, and actually have plans to get a boob job in the future once I have my kids, I want to be proportionate I'm tired of being bottom heavy! I want an hour glass! My frame is too big to be flat chested!

As for your MIL what you are going through is exactly what I'm concerned about with my mom. All the years I struggled with my weight my mom would peer pressure me into treats and snacks, and every time we are there no never just means no, she goes on and on and makes us feel guilty. Back in December I hadn't had my period yet, so I wasn't drinking just in case, and claimed it was because I was trying to get some weight off, and she tried several times to convince me that I could have a little glass of wine, or that such and such wasn't going to do anything. No never just means no to my mom and I'm concerned that she isnt' going to follow my rules for our little girl. I have no concerns about Ben's parents as they are always very courteous to make sure they aren't stepping on any toes, and even at times MIL will call to ask me for a favour, and then spends the rest of the day taking it back and apologizing, and telling me that I don't have to do it etc. She's very worried about upsetting anyone, so I haven't a concern with leaving our little one with her - Mom on the other hand... she better learn the rules or she will be spending less time with her grandchild.

I hope your MIL figures that out too - that's such a shitty situation, especially since she's not directly related to you, it's more of an issue to come right out and say something.

What?!?!? Not a single post since yesterday?!?!? Shame on all of you for working, spending time with your children, or being on Holiday. Tisk! Tisk! :)

Not much going on here. I'm having lots of yellowish creamy cm, but that seems pretty normal for me around this time. The backache still continues (new syx) and last night before bed, I kept having sharp stabbing pains in my left breast near my nipple??? :omg: Anyone else have anything like this????

Oh come on BFP!!!! I so badly want to use my sand bucket idea at the beach!!!!!!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Wednesday!!!! :hugs:

Kymbr ~ My plan is to not test at all unless AF is late. The good thing about not temping, I do not see the x DPO on my ticker, nor do I see a high temp in the morning, so I really do not have the urge to test. :) I'm sorry to hear little Fox is giving you such a hard time! Hopefully after the baby is born, he will back off of you a little bit. LOL Even though your little peanut is not here yet, your growing belly is already taking time away from Fox that he is used to. Just give him time to adjust after the baby is born & I'm sure he will go back to the little angel that you know & love. Well, until he turns 3. :omg: 3 is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy worse than 2 :wink:
I can not believe your MIL!!!!!!! :shock: I do not know how you kept your tongue! I would've said, "Well, I would much rather him be uncomfortable, than dead!" His safety is not her call, it's your's, as HIS mother! The same goes with the food issue, again, not her call, it's your's! I hope Nathan's talk goes well! FX!

Tessa ~ Well let's hope the stabbing pain is a good sign? LOL

AFM ~ Not much to report. I know! I am so lame! I am moving on to CD 20, yay! My boobs are full, as usual, but they've been super sore & like I said, I had that sharp stabbing pain in my nipple area last night. It lasted for maybe 15mins, but was still kinda "stabbing" as I fell asleep. Does anyone have a crystal ball I can borrow? :)
