DS: Mason/15 months
EDD: August 23
I'm Amber, DH is Chris and we are expecting #2! We've been together since Dec/04, married since Dec. 15/06. We got a BFP in Feb/08 but unfortunately 2 months later, that April, I suffered a m/c at 13 weeks, and it was 2 months before the bleeding/spotting completely stopped. Thankfully it wasn't very long before I got my second BFP in Aug/08. I had a very easy pregnancy and on Apr. 21/09 at 9:46 pm we welcomed Mason Christopher via c-section. Shortly before Mason was born DH who was a Chef at a restaurant decided to change careers to something a little more stable so he joined the Canadian Forces. When Mason was 3 months old he left for his 14 week basic training. We decided that when he got home in Nov we would start TTC a sibling for Mason. I wanted them to be around 18 months apart, and since I was still nursing and hadn't had a PP period I had no idea how long it would take us this time around. DH came home Nov. 6 and on Dec. 10 we got our BFP! I had an ultrasound to date and our EDD is Aug 23. We are so thrilled and excited to add to our little family.

Jan. 6 - Dating ultrasound. Saw blip and HB (160s) Got an EDD of August 23
Feb. 8 - 12 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/170's. Weight/126 lbs. Boring paperwork stuff, bp good.
Feb. 25 - Went in for early pregnancy bloodwork. Gave 5 vials of blood and peed in a cup.
Mar. 8 - 16 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/150's. Weight/131 lbs. FH measuring 17 cm. Pap done. Results of bloodwork came back, thyroid a little high, some blood in my urine, nothing to be concerned about at this point.
Mar. 29 - Anatomy ultrasound revealed an active, healthy looking, boy.
Apr. 6 - 20 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/153. Weight/138 lbs. FH measuring 21 cm, bp good. Pap results normal, u/s results normal with baby measuring 4-5 days ahead, but no change in EDD.
Apr. 20 - First meeting with an OB. Baby hb/160's. Weight/144.7 lbs. FH measuring fine, bp good, urine fine. Went over the report from my last delivery and decided that unless any complications arise I should be able to attempt a VBAC, but I would be on a very short leash and monitored very closely due to the closeness of my deliveries.
May 4 - 24 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/146. Weight/144 lbs. FH measuring 25.5 cm. Urine and bp both good.
June 1 - 28 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/142. Weight/153 lbs. FH measuring 30 cm, urine, and bp all good. Baby is head down.
June 5 - Had our just for fun 3D ultrasound and got some great pics!
June 7 - Glucose screen and third trimester bloodwork done. Peed in 2 cups and gave 3 vials of blood.
June 15 - 30 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/133. Weight/152 lbs. Bloodwork came back with low iron, so I'm on supplements. Passed my GD test. FH measuring 31 cm, urine and bp all good. Wants me to have blood drawn again in a few weeks to be sure my iron is going up.
June 28 - 32 week prenatal appt. Baby hb/144. Weight/152 lbs. Urine and bp fine. FH measuring 33 cm. Baby is head down.
July 12 - 34 week prenatal appt. Didn't find out baby hb. Weight/155 lbs. FH measuring 35 cm, urine and bp fine. Baby still head down.
July 29 - 36 week OB appt. Baby hb/135-140. Weight/155 lbs. FH measuring 38 cm. Urine & bp fine, iron is up but still on the low side. Did GBS swab, will get results next week.
Aug 4 - 37 week OB appt. Baby hb unknown. Weight/159 lbs. FH measuring 38 cm, urine and bp fine. GBS results came back positive. Baby had an irregular hb so I was sent for an NST which was good enough to send me home.
Aug 11 - 38 week OB appt. Baby hb/130's. Weight/158 lbs. FH, urine and bp fine. Got checked so I could get the green light to travel, am 3 cm dilated and very thin. Baby hb still irregular, sent for a BPP/NST, everything still looks good aside from the skip.
Aug 18 - 39 week OB appt scheduled.
Never made my Aug 18 appt, Isaac Alexander was born August 17, 2010 via VBAC! 8 lbs 8 oz, 20 inches long.
