Jessica- I can't believe you are so close to your due date now. I hope the little peanut decides to come sooner than later for you. I will keep your Aunt in my thoughts. I am sorry about your car troubles. That stinks!
Adrienne- I hope you have a great week with your sisters. Oh, my EDD based on the u/s is now March 10th.
Devin - Happy 12 weeks! I am glad that you had a nice birthday.
Emmy- Don't you just love the 1T insomnia. It does go away, but it is such a pain while it lasts. I can't wait to hear how your scan goes.
Alyssa- Yay for getting more shopping for Evan done!
AFM- The u/s Friday went great. Based on the measurements they are guessing my EDD is March 10th. The baby's heartbeat was 178 bpm. I have to call and schedule an apt for the NT scan now.
Hi ladies! Wow, talk about an intimidating thread! :) I have been hesitant to join since I got my BFP but I figured what the heck, might as well jump in. I read the whole thread but I will wait to do personals until next time...it's a little overwhelming with so many preggos!
I am 5 weeks and feeling good so far. I've had a little bit of nausea off and on, like I'll have some one day and then not again for a few days...werid. My BBS still hurt and seem to be getting bigger and more sore, but other than that I feel pretty much non-pregnant. The last time I POAS (just this weekend, I know, i'm nuts!) the test line was as dark as the control line so it made me feel a little better. My first appt is on the 17th with the prenatal nurse at 6 wks and then my first u/s will probably be a week or 2 after that. I of course will be a nervous wreck until I see that beautiful little flicker of a heartbeat. Sigh. But I couldn't be happier to be here. :)
Now if I could just get a new siggy I'd be set.
Jess, I hope that peanut decides to make her appearance soon! I'm sorry about the car trouble. That stinks. I hope it is an easy fix.
Alyssa, yay for buying more things! How fun!
Cheryl, I'm glad you had a good scan!
Lisa, this thread can be hard to keep up with. When I get too far behind, I just pick a place to start up again.
Adrienne, I hope that your cleanse is going well!
Hi to everyone else!
I did end up going back to sleep for an hour or so. I'm pretty tired now and am just glad that I'm still on summer break. I have a few things to do today, but not too much. Hopefully a nap will be part of the plan!
Today's scan went well! I got to hear the heartbeat, which measured 180 bpm. The baby is still measuring a day ahead. We could see the spine, arm, and leg buds. We could also see the blood pulsing through the umbilical cord. It was great. I have one more appointment with the RE a week from Thursday, and then I'll be released to an OB! I still have to find one!
Cheryl - Glad the U/S went well on Friday!! That's great.
Emmy - Glad you got back to sleep and so glad to hear that your scan went well too. Awesome HB!! It was amazing when I had my 6W 6D U/S even though it was just a little bean, I could see the heart pulsing. I will always remember that!
Lisa - Don't worry about keeping up with the thread, I have fallen behind so many times and sometimes I am just plain too tired (especially in the 1T) to do personals.
AFM - I am back to feeling normal again, so I am giving up on her coming today. I knew I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up. But it's awesome to tell people my due date is tomorrow. All my co-workers are like "Why are you still here" and I am thinking what would I do at home?? better that I still come to the office a few days a week and fill my time up.
Jess: Don't despair, baby will be here before you know it. Relax and try and enjoy the last few days 9hours) before baby comes. Don't read too much into what your body may or may not be doing. You'll drive yourself insane. Babies minds of their own and will come when they are ready.
Cheryl: Congrats on getting an EDD. i can't believe you are already scheduling your NT scan. Wow, that went by fast.
Emmy: I am glad everything is looking good for you.
Lisa: Welcome to the thread, and congrats again. I wouldn't worry about trying to keep up, I don't think anyone really can. Just jump in at the end, do a few personals if you can.... but most importantly, let us know how you are doing.
AFM: I did a celebration dance this morning... I only got up once last night to pee. My energy and appetite are coming back. I love the 2T.
Kate - Glad you are doing better! Awesome on the only once to get up and pee...
AFM - Still here :) I have given up that she is coming anytime soon. The funny thing is when I tell people that I want her here, they think it's because I am uncomfortable, and besides a few times a day I am really not. I am a little more tired, but nothing like I was in the 1T. the heat is icky, but it would be icky anyway. I am feeling awesome, I think I lost two lbs. My diabetes is going well and I am just inpatient to meet her...
We got my car fixed yesterday - spent almost 900 on it, but it's fixed and it runs AWESOME! I can't believe how great it runs, should have done this a long time ago. I have let go of the fact that I can't do anything for my aunt so it's in God's hands. and everything else will just work itself out. All that I need to worry about now is just waiting for her to come and relax and be at peace with when she decides to show up....
Jess: That is awesome that your feeling so well. That's how I was when I had Ray, I never got to the "uncomfortable, just want to have this baby now" phase with him... and I was loosing a few pounds a week in the last few weeks as well (granted he was early)... but still I know where you're at. I am glad you made peace with yourself about her arrival.
Speaking of cars... my check engine light when on today. We've barely had the car 9 months and it's already been in the shop twice. This will be the 3rd time... it's going in next Wednesday. So frustrating.
Kate - that would be frustrating about the car. Man. I shouldn't complain too much about mine, since it has 111,000 miles on it and we don't have a car payment on it, so it's cheaper than a car payment, more just the timing of it all. Apparently this Throttle body fix has been out for awhile, so I should have taken it in years ago, but the car seemed to run fine..
Hope everyone is having a great day!!
Jess – thanks for the hint on the pack n’ play. Sorry about your co-workers (and other people) being annoying about your EDD. Glad the car is fixed, and that it’s running great now. One less thing to worry about!
Cheryl – great news on the u/s! It must be nice to have an EDD now.
Lisa – don’t worry about keeping up with everything in the thread. If it gets too overwhelming, I’ll just look at the 10 most recent posts and start from there – or you can bypass personals entirely! As for POAS – hey, do whatever makes you feel better, right? :)
Emmy – great news on your scan! So glad everything is looking good.
Kate – yay for only getting up once at night to pee and having your appetite back! That sucks about the engine light coming on. Hopefully it’s nothing major!
AFM �� we’ve decided to go get me a new car this weekend! Hooray! I’ll be getting a Toyota Matrix that’s a couple years old. I’m so excited to not have to drive standard anymore and to have room to haul stuff around.
Not much PG-wise to report. I have a midwife appointment on Monday and I just hope that I didn’t gain too much weight again!
Alyssa: I have a Toyota Matrix and I do love it, but with more then one child it is small, like really small. It is going to be really bad with three children, but even with 2 it is small. The trunk can hold a umbrella or slightly nicer then umbrella stroller and have room for 2 suitcases, but it can't hold a full sized stroller and have any room left. That being said I did love it with just Desmond, but it is too small with Desmond and Eloise, and it is going to be horrible with with Desmond, Eloise and newbie.
Cheryl: Congrats on figuring out your due date.
At the moment here not much going on. Desmond was sick with something on Tuesday and still feeling off yesterday and today. DH was really sick yesterday which was too bad since I had asked him to stay home since I was feeling bad and hadn't gotten much sleep Tuesday night. He is feeling much better today, I am still feeling pretty blah today. Tomorrow is my first appointment, it is just a basic appointment so I am not really that excited about it, especially since it is going to include a Pao smear, and I hate Pap smears.
