Katja: I am so sorry about your grandma, what a difficult time for all of you but how nice that you can also focus on something positive with the coming baby.


Jamie: I'm so sorry your morning sickness has been acting up. I always feel really miserable the first 12 weeks and am so happy to hit the 2nd trimester, I hope you feel better soon.

Jenny: I do kind of agree with your doc as here in Germany we get an ultrasound almost every appt and especially towards the end when the baby is bigger there is so little that can gained from having one and they really don't know the total effect u/s have on babies that being said if it is important to you why not:-) good luck on figuring out where to move!

Mari: hang in there, the last weeks are always hard but just remember no matter what it isn't more then a few weeks.

AFM: I have been able to feel the baby a bit over the past week and on the weekend DH could too which was cute it is still just the little stuff not strong kicks but fun all the same.

P.S. Ruthie, I like the name you are planning on, I would stick with whatever name you like best for the middle name since DH picked the first.

Katja--I'm so sorry for your loss. My great-grandparents died close together like that; apparently a broken heart is real.

Jenny--Funny, because around here a 32 week u/s isn't common at all.

I went this morning for my interview with the midwifery, and my first "real" appointment will be in two weeks. She said that she trusted my chart, so no dating ultrasound. I can choose to waive any bloodwork, and the 20 week u/s is optional (I'll be having that one). I also now have a list of stuff to try to quell the yuckiness; she was a big taken aback when I told her that by 9am, I had already thrown up twice. I forget that it's not normal, since it is to me.

Also, cue freak-out when she told me most subsequent labors are half the time of the first. That's puts me around 3.5 hours, and my office is one hour from home. We're already having discussions with baby about coming at night or on the weekend. At least there are two hospitals on my way. That helps.

Mari - I hope little Julia doesn't decide to delay her entrance to the world. Sounds like you're about done. It's so exciting that you're so close now.

Ash - That's very exciting that you're starting to feel little flutters and movement. I can't wait to get to that stage.

Liz - 3.5 hours is not a long time! Hopefull you go into labor at home & don't have to worry about making it to a hospital from work. Hopefully your list of yuck remedies helps you. Puking 2x by 9 am sounds terrible. My full day queasiness/nausea is no picnic, but really, I feel bad even complaining!

AFM - I don't know if I mentioned but my first "real" appt went well on Friday. The mid-wife was so lovely - she totally remembered dh & I, welcomed us back, hugged & kissed us both, went to great length to discuss how they'll monitor me this time because of our loss. It was just a nice appt. And uneventful, which is fantastic.

I scheduled my next ob check for March 30th, as well as the sequential screening u/s for the same day. The u/s is at the hospital where I will deliver. We aren't high risk for Downs or anything, but I figured I'd do the scan anyway. It'll do my heart good to get an extra peek at the bean. Especially a little further along when s/he will look so much more like a baby.

Jamie-

I think I remember you saying at one time that you are located in northern Jersey, which is where I am too, and I was wondering where you found a midwife that works

Liz- I totally hope that your midwife's saying 2nd labors are half the time of the first is true, but I worry about it as well. I work 45 min from the hospital I will deliver at and my first labor was 3 hrs including pushing (15 min for that part). A 90 min labor would be great, but (for me) it wouldn't be much time for an epidural. I was told at my first OB appt that from 36 wks to delivery I shouldn't travel more than an hour from home.

The big day is 36 hours from now and I am a nervous wreck. I will love another boy as I do William, but would love a girl. We are more than likely done after two and I am not ready to be outnumbered at home. Anyways, I'll let you all know sometime this weekend how it all goes :)

Liz – I would love to have a labor cut in half for #2!! I was 18 hours with Selin. My mom was 12 hours with me and I was really banking on it being that short – wrong! We should take a poll here to see if it held true for most moms with 2+ kids. Do you know if they’ll be bringing back the poll feature?

Jamie – So glad you had a good appt and good luck with the screening! You can never have too many peeks at your LO. 3/30 is a great day – it’s my wedding anniversary! ;-)

Katja – Hope you’re able to find a hospital MW that you like. I love ours but unfortunately I don’t live in NJ, sorry!

Elyse – Sending lots of *open leg vibes* for your big reveal! I'll be checking back for your update! :-)
