Here's a little update on me!
Currently i'm 15 weeks along. I should be able to find out the gender in 3 or so weeks. I go to the doctor Tuesday for a check-up so I will update you all on the heart beat and when the scheduled ultrasound will be.
I'll post some belly pictures really soon!

Awww, thanks for the sticky!!!!!!
Currently, I am 11 weeks and just had my second US because I have a fibroid and they want need to monitor the growth. The baby was jumping up like a little mexican jumping bean, it was hilarious!!! I am still experiencing m/s but in waves now. I do get sick still though, :roll: YUCK!!!!! The meds (Reglan) does work, but I only take it when I really need it. I have my next OB appt next week when I will be 12 weeks!!! Yikes, this is going by fast!!! here'a pic of my little jumpin' bean:

WOW Mimi! I didn't know you were pregnant! Congrats girl! You're only a month behind me so we'll probably be popping these peanuts out around the same time! I think it's kind of cool that we can share pregnancy experiences together again! Smile

Crystal ~ I can't believe you're so close to find out the sex!

Mimi ~ Glad you're m/s is getting a little better at least! It's so amazing that your baby looks like an actual baby!!!!

Well this pregnancy finally seems real to me! I got to see the baby today. DH and Sutter came too which was really nice. The baby is measuring at EXACTLY 7 weeks and 1 day which is exactly where s/he is supposed to be. We saw and heard the heartbeat which was 133 beats per minute! I have my second appointment 2 weeks from today and my second u/s in 4 weeks from today. That seems so soon! Here's some u/s pics from today!

I had my 15 weeks appointment today.
Blood pressure was great!
Heart beat was 151 BPM.
I haven't gained anything since the last appointment which sucks!
I'm putting weight in my tummy, but not on the scale.
I also found out that I won't get my anatomy u/s until another 4 weeks! :*( My doctor will be out of the office two weeks in October so it got pushed back! I was so upset! I want to know so bad what the gender of this baby is. I'll be around 20 weeks then.
I also got blood work done to see if i'm at risk for having a down syndrome baby.
Overall, it was a pretty normal, uneventful appointment!

Great appt Crystal! Sucks about waiting longer for the u/s though. SO EXCITING! And your baby belly is too cute! Have you noticed that you popped so much sooner with the 2nd??? You look great!

Alright Crystal ~ you are killing me! Not a single stretch mark on that belly! LOL! You lucky lady! Seriously though you look great! Yay for a great appointment but sorry about the u/s being pushed back!

Thanks for the compliments ladies! Smile

I did pop so much sooner with this one, Pam! I was shocked! I'm in that irritating in-between stage where I don't fit my regular clothes hardly and maternity is still too big for me!

HI everyone. I had my 12 week appt today. I was able to hear the heartbeat on the doppler! Biggrin !! YEA!!!! I gained a pound or two (even thoguh I am still getting sick, something must be staying down! or maybe it's my BB's they wont stop growing Lol hahaha). It was a pretty quick appt. I go back in one month. Also, had some labwork done (routine). Woohoo for boring!

I was thinking I was ready, but I'm not. I'm thinking we'll start TTC early summer next year.
I just found out my SIL is pg. with their third. This was a HUGE oops pregnancy. Should be interesting!

All right--here I am! I was feeling a bit cautious about posting since I lost ALL my pregnancy symptoms about 3 weeks ago or so. The horrendous m/s suddenly disappeared at about 8 weeks and I wasn't as tired as I had been. It was bizarre! I took another test at the clinic, which confirmed that I was still pregnant, but I wanted to wait to post until I heard the heartbeat. I finally had my first appointment on the 29th, but I haven't had time to post about it.

Lil' bean is now 12 weeks old! We had a quick u/s in the office to see the heartbeat and we'll have another one on Friday. We're going to be sure my dates are correct and I'll get another picture. We're totally thrilled about this baby and DH keeps telling everyone he knows! I'm still having a hard time believing I'm pregnant, even though we were pretty much TTC. I definitely have popped out sooner than with Tristan and have a little belly. Someone at work even noticed, even though I've only told my closest friends. I am getting the "Are you crazy?" looks when people find out. They're like "You just had Tristan" but then comment that it won't be so bad when I mention that they'll be about 19-20 months apart. For some reason, people seem to think that I'll have two kids a year apart. Lol It could be worse, I could be having twins! Or be like my cousin who had three kids 11 months apart!

That's great Sarah!! I am glad you are feeling good!

I totally know what you mean about people's comments. It's funny how you mentioned that a lot of people automatically think they will be one year apart. I am finding a lot of people have kids once their 'baby' turns one. I also cannot believe I am pregnant too. I am totally happy, but an soooo sick and tired of feeling like crap (the m/s comes and goes still).

Anyway, cant wait to see pics of your little bean!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!

Sarah, I get those "I thought you JUST had a baby" looks all the time and what makes it even worse for me is that i'm still young so they think i'm absolutely nuts! Some say "you don't know what you're in for." I know it'll be tough sometimes but aren't all babies blessings no matter what? I just feel like if they aren't the ones supporting our kids, who the heck are they to judge? LOL! Sorry girls, I just hate when people judge us just because we're having BABIES. Goodness!

LOL Crystal! ITA! Sometimes people look at me like I grew a 3rd arm when they see I have 4 children. I cannot WAIT to have another - it will happen when it happens for us - not worried, God has it all planned out for our family. We believe children are always a blessing - I say to ppl who ask if we are having my children "Some people like to have a lot of cats, I like to have a lot of children!" LOL Wink

I too thought I was ready for a while, I even scheduled an appt to have my IUD removed, but I am getting a little scared now? I just dont see many women out there who have a lot of children and who work full-time! My family thinks im crazy for even thinking about it?

I want 2-3 more...but not yet Smile I've done one 20 month spread, now I'd like a little longer break, then maybe have 3 and 4 close in age?

Besides, dh and I are planning a South America vacation--childless--next sept/oct. And mil has agreed to take the kids for a week! So I CAN'T be pg or have a newborn or we can't go. So, maybe ttc next fall? That would make a summer 08 baby...perfect almost 3 year spread from Kaitlyn Smile

Just hope my birth control cooperates Wink

I had my 16 week appt today. It was pretty routine. I had to have my labs drawn again. I also had my AFP done. I get so scared when they do this test (when they check for spina bifida, etc). I am a nervous wreck waiting for the results. Anyway, I was finally able to schedule my BIG U/S!! It's for Tuesday, November 21st. I cant wait that long!!!!!!!! I tried to be sneaky and asked to have it done a week sooner, but the receptionist said I really should be closest to 20 weeks as possible! Egads, you mean a few days will make a difference???? Heeheeee. Anyway, I cant wait!!!!!!!!

Also, I think I am starting to feel little flutters in my belly!!!!!!! YAY!

GUess what?!!! I am feeling my little bean move finally!!!! It's so funny at the strangest times I feel this little 'thud' in my lower belly. I still cannot believe I am pregnant again. Feeling s/he move makes me feel so happy. I love this!!!!!

Lovely to hear all the nice updates and future baby plans.... I think someone asked what their favourite age gap was...IMO 2.5 years is perfect, they are close enough to enjoy playing the same games, but the older one is usually a bit more independent, toilet trained and walking(not wanting to be held all the time too ! ) .

Congrats on feeling your bean movie, Mimi!
Mine has been moving a lot lately! When Braden got up in the middle of the night last night, this one kept moving around and poking me in my side! It was kind of funny...I told Matt, "They're up at the same time...oh goodness!"

Thanks, but I dont feel tiny! I. really think the angle makes me looker thinner than I am hahahah!! It's funny, as the day goes on I notice my belly pops out more!

I really dont know what to think about the gender. So far, I have had two dreams about a boy, however, he was over 20 pounds!!!! The US is in 14 days!!!!!!! (Chrissy that's your B'day right??) I can't wait!!!!

No belly pics for me yet! I'm showing quite a bit, but I haven't been able to take any pictures yet. I'm feeling great, but am still quite tired most of the time. We find out what we're having on Friday! This pregnancy's gone by so quickly! I remember it seemed like forever before we found out what Tristan was.

I'm thinking girl, but another boy would be fun too! I'm having those ligament pains today. Ouch! I really don't remember them hurting as much with Tristan. Maybe I just overdid it yesterday.
