Name/SO Name: Ella/Andy

How many weeks are you? 11 on Friday

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? We have our sequential screening on November 12th, looking forward to seeing the babe again, hoping everything looks good.

Do you feel like you will go early or late? Late - Eliza was 8 days "overdue" so I assume this one will be late as well.

How are you feeling physically?  Better than I have the last few weeks!  Just really, really freaking tired.

How are you feeling emotionally? Okay.  Feeling my usual frustration/annoyance with DH that the 1T brings (for me at least). And now I feel like my frustration is with Eliza more than usual and my patience runs out more quickly than usual.  So, I feel bad about that. :/

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Nothing this month :)

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? We'll find out on December 28th.  I have no clue at this point.  I was sure it was a girl from the time I POAS'ed with Eliza, but this one I have no feeling either way.

Name/SO Name: Alyssa/Kyle

 

How many weeks are you? 4.5

 

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? 1st midwife appointment on Nov. 23, 1st u/s on Nov. 29

 

Do you feel like you will go early or late? Not sure. If anything like with Evan, early.

 

How are you feeling physically? I feel queasy in the mornings and tired at night.

 

How are you feeling emotionally? Worried/excited – early pregnancy is tainted after going through a m/c.

 

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Nothing really. I bought a pregnancy journal, but too scared to start writing in it yet!

 

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? Nope!

 

Jess – sorry you’re feeling so awful, and for having to deal with the contractor thing right now. I hope it gets resolved soon!

 

Jules – sounds like you’re ready!

 

Cassie – congrats again! We can be scared together. Stick, baby, stick!

 

Em – I can understand the feeling of sadness over DS not being an only child. We went back and forth for so long trying to decide if we want #2 or not.

 

Ruby – Can’t wait to hear what you’re having!

 

Ella – good luck with your u/s on the 12th!

 

AFM – TTCing and early pregnancy is all about waiting, isn’t it? I’m a bit worried about this baby sticking. I did have my beta levels tested and it was 185 at 4-weeks. That’s in the normal range, but my doctor is “worried” that it’s low? So, even though I know it’s normal AND it’s only useful if you have more than 1 number, I’m still worried!

I just noticed that Adrienne's ticker is gone. Did it just disappear or did I miss some news?

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? I am now on a wait and see thing. So far I had an appt yesterday and I go again Monday. (I will separate post an update on why)

Do you feel like you will go early or late? Now with recent events I am like 98% sure early.

How are you feeling physically? Okay.

How are you feeling emotionally? Not so good see my update in my next post.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Not too much. I want to start doing something but its too early. lol

Name/SO Name: Christine/DH

How many weeks are you? 4w4d

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? First MW appt on 11/30. Assuming I'll get an U/S then as well.

Do you feel like you will go early or late? Selin came one day after her EDD and we went by O date last time so assuming the same this time as well.

How are you feeling physically? Pretty good. The few days after my BFP I felt nauseous, light headed, sore BBs but now I'm just tired, esp. at 4pm when I'm driving home from work.

How are you feeling emotionally? Feeling a little cautious I guess. I haven't told anyone other than immediate family yet but DH is blabbing to everyone. For some reason I won't be relaxed until our first U/S.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Nothing yet

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? Hoping for pink again, but no feeling yet either way. I was totally off last time.

Soooo heres my long update... I went to my appt yesterday. It was a new pregnancy appointment with a nurse practitioner. She spent over an hour with me. She got my entire medical and family medical histroy. We talked a little bit about protocol at this office and hosptial. She talked about nutrition. And ordered normal early pregnancy labs. But at the begining of the appt before all this the nurse took my BP. it was SKY high 190/140 or something crazy like that. After an hour of talking and sitting it was 152/85 or something. Anyways. The put me on Labadalol (sp?) 2 times a day. I also have to take and record my BP 3 times a day. I had about 9 viles of blood pulled from me, I peed in a cup, and now I have a 24 hr pee scan to do this weekend. And I have to do my 2 hr glucose in the next 2 weeks sometime. :/ And I go back on Monday to meet with my OB again. And from there we will work out a more concrete plan. They are however for now (pending lab results) treating me like I have pre-existing hypertension. (so that is kinda a relief as at least it isnt pre-eclampsia at this point). Fingers crossed that the Labadalol brings the BP down. And that no further things come of it. SANDY- you said you have high BP normally in the last post?! (I hope I am remembering right?) What are you on during pregnancy? (If it wasnt you ignore me- lol.... I blame my preggo brain)

Alyssa - I think that is awful for your doctor to tell you s/he is "worried" about that level without a second beta 48 hours later. I mean, really!? That is ridiculous. You cannot tell anything without a repeat beta to see doubling time. And even if you were going to *only* consider the first number, it shouldn't raise any red flags; 185 is nicely within normal/average range for four weeks. I'm so sorry this has you worried! I totally understand why and I was (still am!) too. Given our histories it is impossible not to worry... :/ Hang in there. That is a beautiful number to start from and hopefully the 48 hour draw will be nice and doubled :)

Mandy - so sorry to hear about your BP issues, and so early on. :( Hopefully the meds control it and you don't get diagnosed with full blown pre-e.
