Kara's pregnancy space!
I'm 27, married to Aaron, 28, for 3 1/2 years. I'm due with #2 on April 1st. We have one perfect little princess, Amina, who was our first surprise, and she is so excited about the baby in mommy's tummy... surprise #2! I guess it goes without saying that we're really bad at planning these things...
First appointment: 8/21 at 11:30 CST. Saw and heard the heartbeat!
2nd appointment: 9/17 at 11:30 CST. NT scan, everything looked good. Had blood draw. Gained 1 pound so far!
Blood draw results: 9/24. Very low risk for Trisomy 13, 18 and 21.
3rd appointment: 10/15 at 10:15 CST. Quick checkup, found the heartbeat, scheduled the anatomy ultrasound for November.
4th appointment: 11/19 at 11:00 CST.

I'm Kristen, 30 (when did that happen ), mama to Alexa who was born June 27, 2007. DH and I have been married for almost 7 years and are excited to be expecting again & feeling lucky to get pregnant on our first cycle trying (for the 2nd time!).
Look what we got!! (July 24, 2009)
EDD -- April 2, 2010
First appt 8/20 -- measuring right on track at 7w5d
2nd appt -- 09/18
hb was 170. Had u/s for integrated screen.
20 week appt and BIG u/s
Found out I have an anterior placenta which is likely why I hadn't felt too much regular movement early on.

Pregnant with #2!
EDD: April 4, 2010 (Easter Sunday!)
My name is Corinne & I am 24. My DH (28 ) and I have been married for 5 years. We have one DD, Caylee, who is 4 (diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 10/7/09) & a little dog named Freckles. DH is active duty US Navy, and I am a SAHM. This was our 15 month of TTC, and we have recently just been through about 1 1/2 months of infertility appointments. We are thrilled to finally be pregnant again, yet still in shock!
1st BFPs: Wed., 7/29/09 @ 12DPO (8 AM) - Digital (6:50 PM)
Another darker BFP: Wed., 8/5/09 @ 19DPO (9 AM)
HOW I SHARED THE GOOD NEWS WITH DH:
THE WINNING CHART:
Appointments:August 17, 2009: Urine Sample to confirm pregnancy. It was POSITIVE!
August 27, 2009: 1st appointment! Met new Dr, did basic labwork, and had an ultrasound. Saw ONE baby & saw the heartbeat. I have a cyst on my right ovary. Will have another ultrasound later on to make sure it's shrinking.
September 24, 2009: Gained 1 pound! Will have to get measles vaccine after baby is born. The nurse couldn't find the heartbeat at first; Made me NERVOUS! The Dr. came in and found it right away. Baby's heart was beating around 161 bpm. The cyst appears to be "leftovers" from where I ovulated. At my 20 week ultrasound, we will determine if the cyst has shrunk or grown.
October 22, 2009: Gained 1 pound. Baby's heart was beating around 152 bpm. Had the quadruple-screen bloodwork done. Results should be back within a week.
November 19,2009: Gained 4 pounds. Baby's heartbeat was at 142. Everything was measuring right on time. We had our BIG ultrasound, and it's a... GIRL! We're thrilled to be adding another girl to our family. I still have the cyst on my right ovary. It measures 2cm. Will have an ultrasound several weeks after baby is born to determine whether I need to have surgery to remove it.
December 17, 2009: Gained 5 pounds. (YIKES!). Baby's heartbeat was at 140. Baby Girl is measuring right on time. I go to the Dr every 3 weeks now.
January 7, 2010: Gained 2 pounds. Baby's heartbeat was at 154. Measuring perfectly. Baby girl appears to be head down! Did the glucose test to check for gestational diabetes.
January 28, 2010: Gained 4 pounds. Baby's heartbeat was at 149. Glucose test came back "perfect"; Blood sugar level was 90! I go to the Dr every 2 weeks now.
February 11, 2010 (Caylee's 4th Birthday): Gained 1 pound. Baby's heartbeat was 138. Dr ordered an ultrasound due to my belly measuring much smaller than he would like at this point, even though it has been growing consistently. He just wants to make sure baby is developing properly and that there is enough amniotic fluid to sustain baby.
February 17, 2010(ultrasound): Met with the ultrasound tech. Baby is still a girl! Heart was beating at 139 bpm. Amniotic fluid amounts looked good. From what I observed, Baby Girl was measuring right on in some areas, and 1-4 weeks behind in others. She is head down! U/S tech commented on her "large feet". From the u/s, Baby Girl is approximately 4 pounds 1 ounce. AND, the cyst on my right ovary appears to be smaller! Will discuss ultrasound results at my next appointment with my Dr, unless he calls and wants to see me before planned. Keeping my fingers crossed that everything is good, and we're just expecting a petite girl.
February 24, 2010: Gained 3 pounds. Baby's heart was beating strong at 143 BPM. It was the first time she didn't try to hide from the nurse. My Dr went over the u/s results with us. The amniotic fluid levels looked good, and baby's body parts were measuring fine. The only cause for concern is Baby Girl's body fat percentages, taken from her abdomen. She was 58th percentile at my 20 week u/s, but now only 22 percentile for my 33 week u/s. The Dr said the decrease wasn't enough to "whisk me away and do a c-section", but I guess it's still somewhat concerning? I'm hoping all it means is that Baby Girl is just slender like her mom, dad, and big sister. I now go WEEKLY to the Dr. Next visit we'll do the Group B swab & he'll check me to see if I'm progressing.
March 3, 2010: No weight gain this week. I've been sick & had somewhat of a loss of appetite, so that wasn't a real surprise. Baby Girl's heart was beating away at 143 BPM. My Dr did the Group B test, and I should get those results back next week. He also did a pelvic exam. I'm dilated to a 1, cervix is still thick, Baby Girl is head down, and VERY low.
March 10, 2010: Gained 2 pounds. Baby Girl's heart rate was 146 BPM. I'm dilated to between a 1 and 2. Cervix is still thick and high.
March17, 2010: No weight gain. (I think this is because I wear shoes when I'm weighed & I wore flip flops rather than my "regular" shoes.) GBS test came back negative! Baby Girl's heart was beating strong at 148 BPM. I'm now dilated to between 2 and 3. Cervix is now 80% effaced, and baby's head is at a -2 station. My Dr said I was "ripe". He also seemed confident that I could go at any time.
March 24, 2010: Gained 1 pound. Baby Girl's heart was beating at 133 BPM. No change in dilation, effacement, etc. Dr said that Baby Girl is low enough that there's really no chance she could turn breech. He also talked a lot about possible induction at any time. However, I want to wait and see how this week & my next appointment goes before making any decisions along those lines.
NEXT APPOINTMENT: March 31, 2010
