I suppose I should do one of these..
My name's Megan, I'm 28 and live in Ontario, Canada. My SO and I have been together nearly 5 years (although just became common-law last month). This pregnancy was planned (despite the shocked looks his parents gave us when we told them).
We aren't finding out the gender (or aren't planning to, if (s)he flashes us through the u/s who knows..).
July 22 - IPS (~13 weeks)
July 15 - first appointment with midwife (~11 weeks)
BP - 90/50, doppler couldn't find heartbeat, but still earlyJuly 22 - IPS u/s
got to see the LO (actually a child, not an alien species as I feared), got to hear the heartbeat, didn't ask what the rate was, they were understaffed as it was and bean was being uncooperative as it was. Picture above..July 23 - Research appt
I'm participating in a research study looking at the effects of air quality/environmental factors on mothers and children and breast milk. This was the first appointment with the nurse. There was about 40 minutes worth of questions about eating habits, household cleaners, paint etc. and the she took 4 vials of blood and a urine sample. Aug 5 - second midwife appointment
Heard the heartbeat - 154, and went over the ultrasound. MW told me that everything looked good, but that I'm about a week further than we'd thought. My placenta is growing in the front, so likely no real movement detection until later. BP - 110/70.Weight tracker
Before BFP - 140; Aug 2 - 136; Aug 5 - 136
