I am so surprised. Every single doc appointment I have been certain they would say the baby is gone, but it just keeps shocking me. I am just starting to come around to the fact that I am pregnant and feel like I am starting to get excited. I had lots of spotting in the begining of the pregnancy and I never had any symptoms. So different from my previous pgs. I do have gd again and am on insulin for my fasting sugar already, but I am not surprised by this. I am also currently on rest for a few days as I had bleeding last weekend and cramping for several days. I believe I had a cyst rupture which caused the bleeding. But that combined with the cramping and the very tender abdomen led me to think it was over once again. "Little shocker" shocked me again when I heard the hb on Wednesday. I did have to get bloodwork to test for antibodies (I am rh-), but thankfully that came back neg so I was able to get a shot of rhogham. So that's my update. I can't believe this might actually happen!

Awesome! And hey, we're due date buddies, I think. I know how you feel about being so sure something bad would happen. PAL brain causes so much anxiety for me. We went for our NT scan last week and I was certain we'd get that horrible news again. Even now, I hate having to wait 17 more days until our next checkup. Anyway, sounds like you're moving right along too!

yay! Congrats on the 2t! I felt the same way, always going to the dr waiting for them to tell me the baby was gone.. Its really only started getting better now that I can feel the baby move everyday, but at least its getting better, even if it did take time!
