Happy to hear that you're both well, ASEXYWITCH and TEIKSTADT. Wishing you both continued good health!

BTW, 9 months sounds like such a long time until you're actually getting ready to have baby. I can't believe I'm at 20 weeks already! So much to do to get ready for the little one.

Congrats to everyone so far. I just had a scary appt yesterday. Had some funny pains. Doc wanted to rule out preterm labor and gall bladder problems. I had every test under the sun during a 3 hour, stressful visit and then had to wait for all lab results today. Finally heard back and everything was negative! What a relief. This is my first, so I felt silly, but at the same time I have no idea what this is all supposed to be like. I'm glad I went and can relax a little now. I have my 27 week appt next week. Entering 3rd trimester...woo hoo. It's going so fast. Hope everyone is doing well! emoticon

Actually I have been off bed rest for awhile and just told to take it easy, although I have had a cold for months now and it drains me so much, I stay in bed and sleep a lot anyway! At the Dr. today we scheduled my C-section for 1-2-12! Getting all my ducks in a row and so ready! :)

Congrats, GSWINNIE!

ASEXYWITCH - How are you doing on bed rest? It's got to be tough, but it sounds like you've maintained a positive attitude throughout the pregnancy.

As for me, we had our fetal survey ultrasound today. It took a long time since the baby didn't really want to lay on it's back for measurements, but everything looks good. We also found out that we're having a girl! My DH and I both had a feeling the baby would be a girl, so it's funny to know our intuition was right.

Take care,
Rosie

I had my first appointment. I'm about 6 weeks along and due on June 3rd. I have to make an appointment to have a ultrasound in a couple weeks. I had to laugh at the Midwife's advice. (the regular OB doesn't do the first few appts because they are time consuming) She told me the best thing to do was eat right and get plenty of water. That's what I've been doing!

I will do one thing today to make my life better.

Yesterday I had a gush of blood come out when I went to the bathroom! Went to ER, found out I have a tear in my Placenta probably from picking up my sleeping 45 pound Son up off the floor. I am on strict bed rest for a long time! The US tech said to me "Well, your baby is still alive and his/her heartbeat is 157" He said it just like that, can you believe it?! I am 15 weeks along and have a 50/50 chance of carrying to term a healthy baby! I now have a chance also of getting blood clots, infections or my baby losing oxygen or nutrients along with tearing it more if I am not very careful! I have been lightly spotting all day today. I can't even describe how I am feeling at this point, I cried enough yesterday to last a life time! Sorry to share such scary sad news! :( I have an appt. tomorrow with MY OB and will learn more.

Oh my! I couldn't imagine that. I'd be scared just from getting my tooth worked on! Glad you're safe and have a pain free tooth. =)

My next appointment is on the 7th. I can't wait. I was rear-ended 3 weeks ago. Just hours after my midwife appointment. I'm sure nothing is wrong, but I can't help feeling worried. Just hearing the little one's heartbeat will help put me at ease!

Ok so while getting my tooth extracted today, tornado sirens were going off! They quickly yanked it out and all patients and Dr's went to the basement/garage! My husband and Son were in the car and they came in the office building because police were driving down the street with their megaphones saying take cover immediately! Very scary! Finally home safe 3 hours later!

Went to the dentist this morning about terrible toothache and I need an extraction it is that far gone! Why did it not start hurting til I became pregnant? I could of taken care of it and maybe saved it long ago. That's why it is important to keep regular appointments!

Had my first sonogram today. I thought it was too early to see anything at 6 weeks, but Doc wanted to see the sac was formed at least and we did! I did my blood work and have another appt. next week. Here we go, because of my age and weight the appts begin and will be often!

My first sonogram this Friday, a little early but I am considered high risk. I had 10 of them with my Son and endless NST's! I live for them though, I loved hearing his heartbeat and seeing him!

so excited for everyone. :D I am in the homestretch 35 weeks along due February 20th. Had my last appointment Friday. I have been having so much pressure and my Dr. checked me I am dilated to 2 already [this is baby #3- Sydney] and I dilated early with the last one. But no sex for two weeks -trying to hold out until 37 weeks just to be sure baby will be ok. And not a lot of walking or anything. Hard to do when you have a 1 year old [Caroline] too lol [I also have an 11 year old [Alayna] All Girls!
Next appointment is Friday. [I go weekly]

I have my first ultrasound this Friday...soooooo excited! I mean, it's one thing to know you're pregnant, but to actually hear the heartbeat and stuff...to know that all this nausea, crankiness, exhaustion, etc. is really for something...I'm so excited!!!

I had my 2nd appointment this past Thursday, and it was my 2nd only because I did my ultrasound then. I have my next appointment the day before Thanksgiving. My due date is June 3rd, but they are going to shed a few days off of that for a planned C-section.

So I had my 3rd Doctors appt Yesterday and there is a couple things I am not doing that well at. One I have gained a couple more pounds then the Doctor and I wanted me too. I have no been very active and have been eating a lot of food that isnt healthy for me, also I have been only eating a a few times a day and they have been large meals instead of many smaller meals. So I am going to watch what I eat a lot moreand I am going to try and get myself out walking everyday and yoga like I use to!

But besides the weight I need to get some maternity clothes I am definately showing now and I am still trying to fit into my old clothes because I hate spending money and I hate buying larger clothes!

So I have a couple things I need to watch for the next month or so but Baby is doing great, heartbeat strong and doctor says in a couple of weeks or sooner I will start to feel him or her. It is kicking so much and Next month we get to see if i is a girl or boy!!

We have gone to only one apt and that was with the nurse to see when our due date will be. Nov.13th. ANOTHER Friday the 13th baby! We were hoping to switch doctors because with our first little guy the doctor was not too friendly with the, how do I say this delicatly, large patients. On I think it was about the 4th month he put me on a diet and told me to only gain 10 more pounds. Lets just say I cried ALOT when I went to each doctor visit. Can't wait to go and see him now! Other than that we will be going on the 30th for the "official" visit that little man will be able to go to. I am very excited to get our little guy involved with everything!

I had my first appt on Friday, I went alone and once I got there I wish I would have had my Fiancee come with. I was there 4 hours! Did everything from learning about pregnancy, meeting doctor, having him exam me and tell me how far a long and have some blood tests, urine tests and swab tests! No calls so I am guessing everything is going good so far. I was really upset that I didn't get to see baby or hear heartbeat, but I get to in 5 weeks at the next one and Fiancee is coming with, plus in 5 weeks I will be thru the first trimester!!

8 weeks to go and baby is doing great!! :) Kicked the doctor, turned and tumbled all over for the whole session. And i think he/she has the hiccups alot.. Or just loves pounding mommy! Hopefully that doesnt continue outside..!

Well over to mommy, im not doing good at all! Got the flu, hight blood pressure and high pulse. Feel like im letting my self down.. My heart is pounding for every little movement it seems. Hopefully ill get well soon so that i can get out and walk to get that pressure down!

Went to the Dr's yesterday, baby is doing great. Haven't gained anymore weight. So our total still stands at 23 pounds gained the entire pregnancy. Had a non-stress test done and baby passed. Had our induction scheduled for tomorrow at 7am. but because of Marion General doing remodeling on the labor and delivery floor it had to be rescheduled for Friday morning at 7am. Yeah I know that sucks it just makes this week go by even slower than usual. Anyway's I'm trying my best to hang in there and be as patient as possible. (Easier said than done at this point.) Still hoping that baby boy will take matters into his own hands and put mama into labor, but I just don't see that happening, he's just to damn comfortable in there. At least there is an end in sight for me and this pregnancy will not go on forever. I'm so ready to be done with this whole baby making business.

Well, I went to the Dr's today and boy is still breech ( big surprise lol) I'm going into L&D @ Marion General at 2pm. tomorrow to see if we can get this boy to flip. If we are successful then I will be induced afterward. If we are not successful at flipping him it will be a second trip home from the hospital still pregnant and this coming Monday we will schedule for the c-section. I'm really hoping we are able to flip him tomorrow. So as it stands now his birthday will either be July 8th or 9th. or if we have to go with the c-section it will be the 16th. One way or another we're getting this boy out!!! SOON!!!

I've been MIA the past few days. We were having some problems with the computer, but all is back to normal for now.
Went to the Dr's monday for our week 36 appt. Baby is doing well hb was 141bpm and had my first internal exam since the begining of the pregnancy. Cervex is still high and completely closed. So no signs of any preterm labor. Only one small glitch, it seems as though my LO has flipped himself and is now breech. lol. little rascal. I go back on 6/30 for our next appt. and they are gonna do an ultrasound and attempt to flip him back. I hope we are successful cuz, I really do not want a c-section. Have a great day

I would say if it is not normal it is probably the hormones. I always get a bit nauseous but for me it is normal. I just HATE having my blood taken!!

I get that way every time blood is being drawn from me. I am not afraid...well sometimes wierded out, but I am used to it. The tech was worried about me when I went in for HCG tests (2 times) because I just started going limp.

No one has ever told me to put my head between my legs, although I do not doubt it works. Possibly the hormones are accentuating it.

My 2nd appt. is April 22! Just wanted to ask a question. At my first appt., they did blood work. I will graduate from nursing school in May so blood doesn't bother me...usually! Well, when they started taking my blood, I got really lightheaded, nauseated, and tingly so they made me put my head between my legs (which prevents you from passing out). Do you guys think its just the pregnancy hormones causing me to be that way? By biggest fear in life right now is that they'll have to take more blood at my next appt!

next week I will have my 7 month apointment. I am having a baby boy in about three months now. I am having the diabetis check this one the one where they make you drink the sugary drink and do blood tests. I am kinda nervous cause I think I have that based on how much water I drink. Over a gallon a day, almost two gallons. I crave salt and everything diabetics do we will see how that one goes.

I got to my appt. a lil' late this morning due to the weather. School was canceled so my oldest Monica got to come with us. (lucky her) Once they got me in they did my weight and blood pressure, both came back good. My weight is 141lbs. with shoes & I had just ate. Still that only puts us at +4. Doing great on that!! Then we went in to talk to the genetic counselor. She was great answered all of my ??'s. And informed me that if the ultrasound came back okay there was really no need to do the amnio unless I still wanted it. (No thanks, lol. ) So we had the ultrasound done and everything looked great the baby was moving around alot. It's so cute!! lol. AND.. of course the big news everyone is waiting to hear (or read rather) IT"S A BOY!!!! We're so excited!!!! Especially daddy cuz he wanted another boy. Now we gotta come up with a first name to go with James as the middle name. That's hubby's middle name. The Dr. came in after that and felt the baby was healthy and growing right in tune with my due date so I declined the amnio. I feel we made the right choice. I'm so relived that all is well with our new son.

Went to see Dr. Foulk yesterday for our 4th month appt. and everything is good for the most part. Baby was moving around alot while I was in the waiting room. Think maybe it was trying to reassure me, lol. Heartbeat was 143bpm and my weight is almost back to pre pregnancy one pound to go, I weighed in at 136. I also got the results of the AFP test. 2 of the 3 test came back with normal results. ( spina-bifida and tryisome 21) The 3rd screening for tryisome 18 came back as a 1 in 87 pregnant woman. Which means with this baby I have a 1 in 87% chance of it having tryisome 18. So Dr. suggested an amnio on the 27th of February, I'll have to go to Columbus to have it done. I'm kinda scared and nervous at the same time. I've never had an amnio done. I'm not very fond of needles either. lol. Has anyone else had this done before? Is it as bad as it seems? I guess the only good part is we'll be able to find out the sex sooner than we expected. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mary

I went to the Dr. today for our 3 month visit. They had my prepregnancy weight wrong, they had it as 149 when it was actually 139. I told them I hadn't weighed 149 since Aug. of last year. lol. Anyway got that fixed. The nurse couldn't find the heartbeat at first, then when she did we kept losing it. I think the baby was moving around to much. lol. We did hear it long enough though, 149bpm. I weighed in today at 134lbs. Next appt is Feb. 15th.

I did bloodwork and the doc called me and just confirmed yep you are pregnant. She said to come in for an estimated due date. I don't cycle regularly or at all actually. I have been taking progesterone to make me have a period every 3 months or so. I wasn't even sure if I ovulated at all. I've been taking metformin for 6 months now and just working on losing weight. I 've lost 30 lbs since starting ttc. I definitely think it helped. Me getting pregnant happened a lot sooner than I thought it would and with so much less trouble than I thought it would take! I am so HAPPY!!!!This month I was supposed to start clomid and low and behold there it was! A positive pg test!!! I was so elated and so happy that it didn't take clomid to happen and now i know I can indeed conceive.

I am so not far along at all! I am going to have an ultrasound on Dec 26. It is to make sure the baby is implanted in the corect place and that things are good so far. I got pg between 11-20 and 12-10. I found out on Dec. 10! I am so overjoyed! I will have another ultrasound shortly within the few weeks after that so I can listen to the heartbeat. I am going to cry I just know it!

No it's to early to know the sex of the baby. Will find out sex at 22 weeks. (sometime in March.) Good luck at your first appt. Your definitly right about it feeling more real when you have apicture to look at.

Glad your appt. went well. Did the doctor predict wether it's a boy or girl? My first appt. is on January 3rd. I can't wait. It begins to actually feel real when you have a picture and hear the heartbeat!
