Update since I've been MIA

Sorry I've been gone for so long! Life has caught up with me and I just can't seem to find time.


Baby is doing great. I feel it move all around all the time and DH even felt it for the first time the other day! We go next thursday for our U/S and hopefully find out if we have a boy or girl rolling around in there. I haven't had a gestational diabetes test yet, which worries me since I'm already 18 weeks along. Shouldn't that have been done earlier? I plan on asking at my next appt. I feel like since the fertility clinic released me, I haven't had any blood tests or anything done. Odd? I remember alot with my DS, but that was almost 10 years ago....


My 2T isn't so fun. I've been fainting alot and getting migraines for 3 days at a time just about every week. I can't seem to get the baby's room started, it's still so cluttered, and I'm apprehensive on moving forward. I just feel like something could still happen. PAL brain working hard. Plus it's hard to do anything with a migraine!


Other than that, I'm trying to stay as stress free as possible. Not so easy to do with everything else going on; we're having some real struggles with my DS and his biological father. If you could send some prayer our way for that situation, I'd greatly appreciate it. It's a major safety issue and I think social services will be stepping in soon, which is a good thing, just alot of stress and worry.


I hope everyone is else is doing well! I'll check in more regularly to catch up with some of the fellow TTCAMs that keep on coming (YAY!).

Glad you are doing well! They don't usually do the GD test until 3T (28 weeks) unless you had previous GD, then they'll sometimes test earlier.

Thanks for letting me know about the G/D test being in the 3T. A friend of mine is only a couple weeks ahead of me and she had her test over a month ago! She had a m/c before, maybe she had it then, or maybe bc she's a little over weight they did it early? In any case, good to know I'm not missing the time frame!
