Im still hanging around here..not as much as I use to ever since the change on this sight because it takes so long for me to log on but Im still here! Im 33 weeks along tomorrow and this pregnancy has been not an easy one for me. I past out a couple weeks ago and when I fell I hit my kithchen table as I went down my husband said..when I came to my tailbone felt like I had broke it and had some major stomach pain..needless to say I got a trip to the hospital in the ambulance. They did some testing on me and one of the tests they performed was called ( howardbedkey test) I have no idea how to spell it! Anyway it is where they found blood from baby in my blood..so I had to have a rogam shot since I am rh neg. and they are now monitoring baby really really close! I have to go in twice a week to get non stress testing done and every week to my O.B doc with ultrasounds to check for anymore bleeding. I was so afraid of what this could have been but yet my little one is still hanging in there thank goodness! I did find out that he is on the 66th percent rate for his weight so far so that is great! My back is still REALLY hurting me but I will not let them x-ray it because if my tailbone is broke I dont think they can really do much for it anyhow. So here is to the hope now that baby will continue to be okay and remain put for aleast a couple more weeks!!!

I'm here, although I feel like I shouldn't be posting until I know that I am staying.  Betas Monday.  I can't believe I held out for a week and didn't get bloodwork yet!  HPT was very dark today, so hoping it's gonna stick.

I'm here too.  I have a follow-up sonogram on Monday, Feb. 11th to check for fetal growth.  The baby measured 4 days smaller than it should have according to beta draws, so we want to see if the growth rate has picked up. I'm hoping for a big growth jump!

 I'm 7w 4d. I have my 1st viability U/S tomorrow at 11am EST. Not too optimistic after the fall. Then some brown to pink discharge this weekend. Didn’t go to the doc cause I have the U/S this week. It wasn’t much at all. It’s not looking good IMO but we will see. DH has to work so I’ll be going at it alone tomorrow. Which I’m perfectly fine with not much he can do either way. Hopefully I’ll be back to report an awesome HB and official due date. It’s to keep my head up but I’m trying J

I'm still here, just not on much. I've been keeping myself pretty busy so that I have less opportunity to stress and worry over things I cannot change. January 20th was 1 year from my angel Elijah being born. It was a tough day, I ended up being alone all day, SO had to work all day, my other kids were with their dad, so just wasn't looking great for me to not fall apart. Then I just decided that instead of being sad, I needed to do something positive. I posted a long post on facebook about how my life has been for the past year and how even though it was horrible at times, overall things are better than they had been before I found out Elijah was gone. Then I went and submitted an application to enroll in an online associate's degree program. Now I'm in my second week of a three week orientation. I had a level 2 ultrasound last week and things looked good. Baby was measuring a week ahead of what my original viability scan had shown. I'm 13w1d today and going to the dr to check up on things. I'm considered high risk because of my loss last time, and I have been having some problems with my blood pressure being a little high, so I think I will be able to start going in a little bit sooner. Also, I ordered a doppler, just waiting for it to come in the mail. I think as long as I can figure out how to use the thing, it'll give me some peace of mind.
