Baby #2 ~ EDD 3.17.10

My name is Karol (29) and I have been married to Brent (31) for 5 years. We have one son already (J.P. - born 3/1/07) and are expecting Baby #2 in March 2010!

7.7.09 at 10dpo



Appointment #1 - August 10, 2009
Met with one of the midwives and did an extensive family history, chatted about diet and weight gain. Also discussed my hypothyroidism and made an appointment to see the endocrinologist next week to keep tabs on my thyroid hormone levels. Had 4 vials of blood drawn and an ultrasound to date the pregnancy. Baby was measuring 5 days ahead of my LMP (due to my short cycles) so my official due date is now St. Patrick's Day! I come back in 2 weeks for a physical exam

Appointment #2 - August 24, 2009
Today I met another one of the midwives, Penny, and had a routine appointment. I met another one of the midwives today, Penny. I really liked her. She did a quick pelvic exam and all looked normal, uterus measuring 11 weeks.

BP: 118/70
Weight: gained 1 lb
Urine: negative

She tried to find the baby's heartbeat using the doppler but was unable to since my uterus is still tucked behind my pubic bone. So she sent me down for a quick ultrasound to get the baby's heart tones. Not that I was gonna complain about that! I'm so amazed at how much s/he has grown in just 2 weeks! His/her heart rate was a very healthy 179 BPM! Now I don't go back for another 4 weeks! Yay! Smile

Appointment #3 - September 17, 2009

Make a pregnancy ticker

I'm Taylor, I'm 23 years old (I'll be 24 by the time the baby's born). SO is Jason, he's 26. I'm currently trying my hand at being a SAHM and he's a chef. We live in middle Tennessee, not Knoxville and not Nashville, but in between in another "ville". I moved here last year from Houston, Texas after Hurricane Ike and met the love of my life. This is his first, my second. I have a DD named Alexandra Faith born on November 14, 2004. I'm due March 3, 2010. This is a Bonnaroo Baby, apparently we brought home more than dirt from the last NIN concert Smile

First Belly Picture- 7 weeks

14 weeks

15 weeks

First Ultrasound- 7 weeks

Appt July 21 - U/S, baby measured 6 wk 6 days, but due date was kept. Found subchorionic fluid and was put on Prometrium.
Appt Aug 14- Heartrate of 163, found immediately with a doppler on my lower right side. U/S showed NO more subchorionic fluid!
Appt Sept 8- Diagnosed with severe anxiety problems. Gained 9 lbs. total, *****ed at for it by a stuck-up 19 year old looking MA. Decided after that appt to switch OBs because they screwed up my NT Scan dates. I now have to go to Nashville (an hour away) to have a specialist do a late scan.
Specialist Sept 16 Chances of Down's Syndrome is 1/2000 and everything looks great. Couldn't measure cervix due to contractions happening, put on close watch for it, since my mother went into bedrest at 18 weeks with my little brother and sister for the same reason. We got an extra special surprise- at 16 weeks, the baby was DYING to show us what it was. . . and we're having a BOY!
Appt Sept 22 Will check for contrax again, start the quad-screen bloodwork, and discuss the anxiety meds they put me on. Will most likely be my last appt with this OB.

EDD: March 21, 2010

Hi, my name is Jen and DH is Darin! We have been married for just over a year, and are currently expecting our first baby in March! I guess March is the perfect month for us, because we won't be finding out the sex until delivery day! So there is lots of green in store for this baby! Wink

BFP: July 8, 2009

8 Weeks:

12 Weeks:

8.04.09 - Prenatal Interview! Filled out lots of medical history papers. Tried to get bloodwork done, but no one could find a vein!

8.07.09 - Lab tech finds a vein! Woohoo! She takes 4 vials of blood and my pee in a cup!

8.10.09 - Pink spotting in the early AM. Brought in for an ultrasound at noon -- baby looks great! HB 183. Measuring 5 days ahead. No reason found for the spotting. Put on pelvic rest for one week.

8.17.09 - Brown spotting in the afternoon.

8.18.09 - Brought in for pelvic exam due to spotting. Everything looks fine - no blood, cervix nice and closed. Thought to be residual old blood from spotting episode last week. HB found right away with doppler.

9.02.09 - First official OB appointment! 12 week check. HB in the 160's. Doc says I have tons of pelvic room for a petite person! Everything looks great.

9.10.09 - NT Scan. Baby wouldn't cooperate! HB 166. Still measuring roughly 5 days ahead. It took the tech an hour and a half, plus the doctor, to finally get the measurements! Gave a small sample of blood for hormone check, and will get our results in one week.

9.16.09 - Results came back great! Our odds are 1 in 17,000 for Downs Syndrome and 1 in 36,000 for Trisomy 18. Genetic Counselor tells us that is excellent and perfectly normal. Phew!

10.08.09 - 16 week appointment. Everything looks great! HB in the 160's again -- no problem finding it at ALL! Nothing too exciting at this visit, just a belly check! Starting to feel fetal movement this week! :biglove:

11.04.09 - 20 week ultrasound and appointment. Baby looks perfect! Measuring right on where he or she should be (except for the legs which are measuring a week ahead right now! :eek: Tech said that was normal for this stage, though!). Baby was weighing in at 13 ounces, HB was a loud, strong 148. Heart, brain, kidneys, stomach, bladder and spine check out beautifully! We even got to see the baby swallowing amniotic fluid during the 4D! Ultrasound tech knew what we were having (baby was spread eagle!), but we didn't peek!

12.01.09 - 24 week appointment. Just your typical belly check! I've officially gained 15 pounds! :eek: HB was loud and strong and lovely! Had my belly measured with the tape measurer thing for the first time! Wink Everything looking spot on.

12.10.09 - Glucose test. Ew, awful! Orange drink wasn't cold yet (they'd just restocked the fridge) and it took her four pokes to finally draw blood! So instead of blood drawn at 60 minutes, I had blood drawn at 90 minutes! The lab technician said it shouldn't skew my results. :eek: We shall see!

12.29.09 - 28 week appointment. Passed my glucose test! Yay! Doc said everything looked great and right on track (even though my belly is measuring a week ahead! :eek:). Baby's HB was 144 and kept moving away from the doppler! So cute. Smile Blood pressure was great, weight is fine (though I feel like a whale...). Nice, routine appointment!

1.13.10 - 30 week appointment. Belly measuring 31.5cm (up 1/2 cm from my last visit) and looking great! BP was 110/70 -- looking good so far! Smile HB was 150, and weight gain is right on target.

1.19.10 - Having tons of BH's, so I called the doctor. They brought me in for an NST. Baby seems fine, but I am having contractions, so doctor does a cervical check. I'm a fingertip dilated and thinned. Sad Prescribed 5 mg of Terbutaline to slow down the contractions, and bedrest until my follow-up on Friday.

1.20.10 - Biophysical ultrasound. Perfect score! Baby looks great! Biggrin No signs of stress, despite the contractions. We got the cutest little chubby cheek pictures!

1.22.10 - Follow-up appointment. Cervical check shows no change... whew! I've decided I don't like the Terb, but I'm still having a ton of contractions, so the doctor puts me on bedrest until 36 weeks. That's 4 weeks from now!! :eek:

1.26.10 - 32 week appointment. I've still been having a ton of BH's, even though I've been on bedrest, so the doctor lectured me about not taking the Terb and instructed me to take it from now on. Sad He checked my cervix and I'm still only a fingertip, but very "flat". Boo. Baby's heart beat sounded great, though! Belly measuring perfectly, too!

2.9.10 - 34 week appointment. Great appointment! Doctor says everything looks fantastic and right on track! Got my Group B Strep swab. :eek: That was unexpected! I thought it was done at 36 weeks! Hopefully I'll get my results next week! Also got a cervix check, and I'm still less than a centimeter dilated, and soft. So far, so good! Biggrin Put on weekly appointments now just to keep an eye on the preterm stuff.

2.16.10 - 35 week appointment.

A Little About Me
My name is Sarah and I'm 19. My boyfriend's name is Michael and he's 22. We live in Texas and are currently both students. I'm in nursing school (will be taking Spring semester off, starting back up in Summer semester II). Michael is in the fire academy, followed by EMT school in the Spring. Both of us are crossing our fingers for a baby boy, but of course will be happy either way! Michael has a 2 year old daughter, Talyn, and is taking care of her brother Tye as if he were his own. We're going to have our hands full for sure, but I'm definitely anticipating the future Biggrin

IT'S A BOY!!!!!!

August 17th, 2009 Saw jellybean for the third time (first two times were in the hospital), so precious!
September 14, 2009 Heard heartbeat, in the 160s. Set date for gender scan (Oct. 16!)
October 16, 2009 Had our anatomy and gender scan today. Everything was perfect. Found out baby is a BOY!!! Every little part of his body is growing and developing perfectly. Heart rate of 145. I got amazing pictures and I couldn't have been more happy after this appointment. Since I conceived on the pill it's hard to say a real good estimate for a due date. But at this appointment baby boy was measuring about a week ahead. Got diagnosed with shingles, put on antivirals, and received flu shot. In two weeks I'll have a regular OB appointment. Total weight gain at this point is 10 lbs according to home scale, 12 according to OB's.
