My DH and I were married July 7, 2007. This past August, DH and I decided it was time to start TTC. We immediately got pregnant, but lost the baby late September.
On December 22nd, I got a faint line on a dollar tree test (honestly, I thought it was an evap line, but I saw it during the alloted time frame). The next day I tested again, and got a slightly darker line. The night of December 23rd, I took a digital test and got this:
Based on my LMP my EDD is September 2nd. FF has my EDD at September 5th. I will make a doctor's appointment at the end of the first week of January. I want to make sure that we will have a heartbeat by my first appointment!
The winning chart:
How I told DH:
We were out of town at my parents house.
Upcoming doctor appointments:
January 13 @ 1:45 with midwife: Saw baby!! Baby is measuring exact with my O date at 6w3d. We saw the little heartbeat flickering! Blood was drawn, will check progesterone level to make sure that didn't cause my m/c in September.
January 15- B/w came back. Progesterone level is a 13.9 (11-45 is healthy range). Was called in progesterone supplements to take every other day for the next four weeks.
February 10 @ 10 weeks with midwife: Went great!! I have gained 5 pounds but she was happy about that. I'm not. lol We got another ultrasound to see the heartbeat. They didn't think the doppler would pick it up. Baby measured 35mm and was bouncing around!! Heart rate was 154. We saw the little arms and legs moving. Go back in two weeks, to make sure all is well with my progesterone supplements still.
First picture!! Heartbeat was seen!! YAYAYAY!! Baby measuring exact with O date: 6w3d.
10w3d- Ultrasound because doppler had bad speakers and mw was afraid wouldn't be able to hear baby.
Valentines Day (11 weeks even): We heard the heartbeat on our home doppler! It was the best sound ever!! I had the biggest smile on my face.
February 24, 2009 (12w3d)- Heard baby on doppler, though the speakers were not good. lol Kicked at doppler a couple of times and scared my mw. lol Surprise ultrasound to measure baby! Baby looked like it was using my uterus as a trampoline!
March 10th (14w 3d)- Regular midwife appointment: I get to "officially" stop taking the progesterone! I "unofficially" stopped 4 days ago. The itching has stopped!! YAY! We heard the baby's heartbeat! Nice, strong, and LOUD! She was very excited about this. She said we can relax now and enjoy this pregnancy!! Our next appointment is in 4 weeks!! The longest we have went without an appoinment!! She said we could come in after 2 weeks, but since we have a doppler at home, I'm feeling good about coming in after 4. They will do the BIG U/S then!!!
March 16th (15w 2d)- After two weeks of going "Was that the baby?", today was the day.... and there was no denying it. I felt the baby ALL DAY! For some reason, the baby doesn't like the way I sit in the car, because all car ride long I was getting a little something here and little something there. I am so excited!! I can't believe it!!
March 17th (15w 3d)- lol I felt the baby again today! Now I know I wasn't crazy yesterday! YAY!
March 23rd (16w 2d)- Tonight I was sitting at the computer, leaned over and I think the baby did a complete flip in my stomach. I think the way I was sitting helped me be able to feel it so well. This was the craziest feeling I've ever felt. lol It made my heart and stomach feel weird.
April 7th (18w 3d)- BIG U/S!! Had a really, really great appt today! They took some blood to check my thyroid and the tri-screen b/w (I'm thinking). She is very happy that I've only gained 11 lbs. Figures I would get the liberal midwife on weight. THEN it was time for the u/s!! I layed down and she went straight for the legs. Of course our LO was laying with her legs crossed, Indian style. She waited about a minute before she rubbed my belly to get the baby to move their legs. Then, the baby had their hand in front of the goods. I joked and said, "It has to be a boy, with their hand near their crotch." lol Then we got a good shot....
ITS A GIRL!!!!! Anabella Juliette! <3
lol Upside down baby:
Sweet little baby's profile
April 18, 2009 (20 weeks even): DH and I were listening to the doppler today, and she kicked right at the probe thing. So, I had DH clean the gel off and put his hand there. About 2 minutes later, she kicked again. He got to feel her!!! I told him I'm a little jealous because I haven't even felt her on the outside yet.
May 5, 2009 (22w 3d)- Had a great appointment. I am up *gulp* 18 pounds so far. I told DH I really should have taken the 5lb weight out of my pocket before going in. Told them about my "leaking". Had an ultrasound to insure that it is not amniotic fluid that is leaking, but actually ....urine.... Figures my little girl, likes to use my bladder for bouncing on or something.
Now for the cutest u/s pictures ever. lol Anabella sucking her thumb:
June 9th (27w 3d)- Had another great appointment today! Baby had a growth spurt! Last appointment, I measured 23 cm. This appointment I am measuring 29 cm. I have gained 25 pounds, which my m/w is cool with. They took blood since I had my GD test. Yuck. Will know the results July 1st at my next appointment. Had my last ultrasound today. She was very tired, yawning and drinking the whole time. We could see her stick out her little tongue. It was so cute. She weighs approximently 2.4 lbs. Here she is at 27w.
Her little face with chubby cheeks:
The cutest foot in the world (lol, it looks just like mine!):
Anabella Juliette was born July 14 at 10:30 am, weighing 4 lbs 5.5 oz. She was born at a little over 32 weeks. She was in the NICU for 19 days, but was absolutely perfect. She just had to get a little bigger.
