How is everyone doing?
Wow, it's been really quiet over here lately! ;)
How are you guys doing? Hopefully you are all feeling better now that we're getting closer to second trimester. Anything new going on with you? Have you told everyone yet? Are you guys thinking names or have any gender guesses? Come on ladies! Let us know how you're all doing! :D
I'm doing good. I had my NT scan today and got to see baby waving hi! It was so cute. We got some cute pics and a dvd of the whole session so I'm pretty happy. So far everything looks good so we are praying that things continue to go well.
Have I told you guys how much I love my OB? I talked to her about getting an early gender scan at 16 weeks at a 4d u/s place and she asked if we could wait until 18 weeks for the anatomy scan. Hubby and I both said heck no! lol She laughed and said she would feel more comfortable doing the scan herself so we made an appointment with her for the early gender scan at 16 weeks! My Anatomy scan is 2 weeks after that. I'm so excited! :D
I feel pretty good these days. M/S has pretty much left the building, I think. I still feel off here and there but for the most part I feel good. We're still keeping the pregnancy under wraps until the gender scan so we've been laying low. So far, I don't have a bump so it's been easy hiding my pregnancy with loose shirts. Though, I'm really excited to start showing. :D
I still can't believe I've made it this far. After 3 miscarriages and a CP, I didn't think I'd ever get this far. I'm thankful every day and I hope things continue to go well.
Jina, I'm so happy to hear everything is going well and I can't wait for your gender scan :)
Baby seems to be fine but I'm feeling tired and just out of sorts a lot. I don't know how people have more than two kids because handling pregnancy with a 2 1/2 year old is rough! Haha. I'm glad this will be our last. I just keep tellin myself to enjoy this part, but it's hard when I feel like crud !
We are telling my dad at dinner Thursday night. He is the last important person to tell. Everyone else will find out on Facebook. The next Thursday (8/9) I have a doctors appointment where I will hopefully hear our baby. DH will be out of town but I'm going to try to record it on my iPad somehow. If all goes well at my appointment we will share the news on our 3rd anniversary (8/15) on Facebook. I'm so excited for everyone to know :)
I'm still here! :wavehello:
I've been having some problems with the site over the past few days so I've kind of been hit and miss.
Jina, SO EXCITED you got to see the baby and your OB is doing your early gender scan!! Your OB sounds SOO amazing! and.....tomorrow marks the start of the 2nd Trimester for you, right??
AFM....well, we're kinda in limbo still. The hospital is backed up so I can't get in for my U/S until the end of this week, when I was supposed to have it last week. And we're really not 100% sure what scan it's going to be.....It's supposed to be the NT scan, but when I got my blood work done a few weeks ago, they said they think my dates are off, so now they're doing a dating scan. So....not sure if they're doing both the dating and the NT, or if we'll have to go back again, or what.
I finally told work yesterday. I couldn't believe how nervous I was! I couldn't even drink my water my hands were shaking so bad!! I've been here 7 years, and I'm the longest running employee they have, so this change for them is going to be pretty difficult.
My nausea has more or less gone, but I still can't beat this fatigue. DH and I had started going for walks in the evening, but now more often than not, I'm asleep on the couch by 5 or 6 pm! And on the weekends, I could EASILY have 2 naps a day!
And I've officially made the switch into maternity jeans! Not really starting to show, but the extra fluffy layers on my midsection are getting pushed up and out, so I actually look further along than I am.
DH And I were going to come out of the baby closet and announce it tonight since I'm officially into the 2nd trimester, but now I think we're going to wait until after the U/S on Friday so that 1) so we have the right dates to give everyone, and 2), we have a pic to show :)
Also.....I have a sneaking suspicion my SIL is pregnant as well, and I think she's going to hold out until the 12 week mark to tell anyone. If she is, I think we'll be due about a month apart :)
I'm far behind the rest of you, since my due date is technically 3/3. So I'm still experiencing all the first trimester fun. My nausea had let up for a few weeks, but is back in full swing now. I am sooooo tired. Not much else is going on with me!
Well my horrendous sickness has been easing off - I went 3 days withing being sick, until last night :-(
Tiredness isnt too bad can't do too much all at once and working 40hours a week takes it out of me. I have been given my maternity work jacket an it looks like a tent lol. But I have my work maternity pants and they are more comfortable.
Parents and work know I'm preg but not announcing it properly untill 12 week
Scan which is 2 weeks today.
I have a 7 year old too and she is a great little helper. She is. Very excited about being a big sister
Megan, thank you! :) I'm sorry you're still feeling crummy. I hope you start feeling better soon. How exciting to tell your dad! I can't wait to hear what he says. Good luck at your appointment! Oh and what a fun way to celebrate your anniversary. :D
Jo, thank you! I think I'll officially consider myself in the second trimester this Saturday. Getting close! :)
I'm sorry you guys are still in limbo. I wonder why they want to do a dating scan? I mean, I thought NT scans are supposed to be done from 11 - 13w6d. I'm pretty darn certain that you're over 11 weeks! I remember you getting a bfp shortly after me so you couldn't be that far off in your dates. Either way good luck at your u/s! You'll have to update us asap!
Congrats on telling work! :D How fun to have your SIL to go through this pregnancy with! Oh and we just found out that my BIL and his wife are 6-7 weeks pregnant with their 3rd. They still don't know about us though! lol
BuckeyeK, I hope you start feeling better soon! 2nd trimester isn't too far off! :)
Danielle, I'm sorry the nausea came back after giving you some reprieve! Your work outfit sounds very....comfortable! ;) How exciting that your DD is so happy about being a big sis! So cute!
Hi Ladies! Glad to hear all this good news! I just got home from my NT scan. Baby wouldn't cooperate, and the tech couldn't get a good reading. I was just happy to see arms & legs moving, and hear a heartbeat. They took some blood, and I go back in a month for the 2nd part.
DH is telling his dad & brothers tonight, and I'm going to call my dad & sister. My mom already knows. I wanted to tell my principal in person, so he doesn't hear about it through the rumor mill, but he's on vacation until next week. I just sent him an email to tell him.
We also need to tell our son! He is 4, and really wants a little brother. I have a few friends who are pregnant, but I don't know if he really understands when I've explained that they have a baby in their belly.
I'm feeling really good. My first pregnancy was a breeze, and I'm hoping this one is just as easy. Hubby & I are walking at night, and I try to do an exercise video during the day. I gained 28 pounds with my first, and I'm trying to control myself more this time.
So incredibly happy for you!!! :bighug:
Jina, how the heck have you managed to keep quiet for so long??!!!
Cathy, I'm glad you got to see your baby moving! Sorry s/he wasn't cooperating! How did your friends and family react? I bet your DS is super happy! :D I'm glad you're feeling good and great job on the walking! 28 lbs sounds awesome to me! :D
Marisol, thank you!
Kristi, haha! I dunno but I LOVE having a secret. I was telling Hubby that I kind of want to just keep it to ourselves for as long as possible. Like, maybe until 20-22 weeks or even longer but he thinks lots of people would be upset if I'm visibly pregnant and won't announce. :rolleyes:
