Great news MM! Some other moms I've been talking to swear by the angel care monitor so that's the one I've registered for but I've heard good things about the one you're talking about too!

In other news, I'm 26 weeks and I've gained 28lbs. I feel like a whale.

Like, even before I got pregnant, I would think about what if I ever have a child and SIDS happens to us. I know I'm going to be neurotic and nuts about any sleeping area for my baby, probably have a fan and humidifier going, constantly check the sheets/mattress/etc...

I'm wondering if a monitor for breathing would be a good idea, at least for peace of mind.
A friend of mine used the angel monitor thingy... just beware, they can be prone to false alarms lol. She said hers went off a couple times in the middle of the night and even at times where no baby had been in the crib for hours and they thought it was off LOL

No you are not a whale! You pretty much gain whatever you're going to gain during pregnancy so try not to stress over it. At 25 weeks I'd gained 25 pounds too but I've gone back to "normal" gain at my last appointment. Pregnancy screws with everything, including metabolism.

I have the OPPOSITE problem. Wanna switch? My doctor keeps fussing at me. Since 8 weeks, I have lost 48 lbs. I was 263. I weighed in at 215 last appt.

Allison, that doesn't sound like too much to me. I guess I should be one to talk, at 23 weeks I've gained 5.5 lbs, but my doctor wanted me to gain 40? and I'm pretty sure for most people of average weight around 30 is the goal? And your weight gain will slow down a bit in the end, so I wouldn't worry. I'm sure it's uncomfortable, or annoying, but I doubt that much would be difficult to lose post-baby or be unhealthy at all.

Barbara, how many weeks are you? I'm 23 weeks and only gained my last two appointments, so started gaining at 18 weeks. And I didn't have to increase my calorie intake so, I guess metabolism slowed.

Yup and so did Erica!!! But everyone who is currently pregnant (both here and that I know IRL and on tumblr) is expecting a girl.

Now I know Barbara having a boy, myself and one friend who did not find out, and...Taq, Jen, Allison, plus 5 on tumblr, plus 2 IRL, having little girls!

DEFINITELY a boy.

He hates the Doppler, lol. Whenever they put it on me, he begins kicking and punching like mad. He is 11oz, has small feet, and is almost as long as a banana.
