Everything looks great, baby's HB is high (but not too high) and Danny, you may be right! The clots may well have been the SCH finally breaking up and leaving the building because he couldn't find the SCH when he went looking for it. Granted, we were on their old portable machine (the nice new one is at the office across town) and my OB is also not an u/s tech (lol!) so it's possible that he missed it, but he looked all around the lining of the sac, and said that everything was smooth instead of having any dark areas that would indicate the clot. So who knows, maybe the wretched thing really is going to go away and stop making me crazy. They were so sweet at the office. I told the lady flat out "I'm sorry I call and come in every couple of days." She was so nice, she just said "We want to make sure you're okay, especially with your history. We don't want you to just let things go, it's better to know. Call us as much as you need to, that's the whole reason we're here." My OB said the same. He also scheduled another quick u/s in two weeks, but added "unless the spotting continues and we need to see you before then, then we'll see you sooner." I love them so much.
So uh...having survived this 8 week scan (the one I was truly dreading, because that's the one that revealed the mm/c in my last two losses....I'm starting to think I may have a good chance at actually having this baby.....:yahoo:
Oh my gosh Jina - Eeeeeeee! Your appointment is tomorrow. I can't wait! You MUST update us as soon as humanly possible. Your dinner sounds amazing, by the way, and I will definitely check out the recipe thread.
Danny - Haha, glad to hear that I am not the only crazy person that is spending the first trimester basically camped out at their OB's office. :)
Babywings - Did you make your chicken marsala? That sounds really good! How did it turn out?
Alissa, love your update! I'm so happy and excited for you! :D
:D :D :D
Jina - love the blinky sign, it is perfect. :D
Oooooh, I am sooooo excited that today is the day of your gender scan. I cannot WAIT to hear all about it (with PICTURES!!!! I demand pictures!!!!!)
*Happy Dance for a happy day*
Hey guys - I was put on full bedrest today with bathroom and light food prep privileges. Excessive swelling, put on a ton of water in one week. Just got bloodwork and not signs of Pre-E but doctor mentioned wanting to delivery next week....the little ones will be here maybe in a week.
Already going crazy not working....I am not a good sit still patient.
Oh my gosh Danny! Do you feel okay? Rest up, you are going to be very tired in about a week. :) Oh my gosh I can't believe how close you are!!!!!
Ditto! I'm sorry about being put on bedrest but try to rest up as much as possible! I can't believe it's almost D day!!! You can do it Danny!! :D

Hubby's birthday is coming up in a few days so I'm pretty excited about that. I got him 2 smallish gifts. We'll probably go out to eat and I'm trying to decide if I should bake a cake or just go buy one.
FIL is coming to town next weekend for my niece's birthday party so he will be staying with us. He's pretty laid back and easy going so it's always nice to have him visit. I'm sure Hubby will have a good time visiting with him since they only see each other twice a year for our 2 nieces' birthday parties.
I feel really nauseous and hungry at the same time today. I started feeling like this last night during dinner and I still feel like cr@p. Yuck.
I guess we're going to start telling people about our pregnancy soon. We're trying to decide if we should wait until after my niece's party. I'll be 18 weeks then....I don't know...I don't want to wait too much longer because I don't want people to ask or wonder why we kept it a secret for so long. :rolleyes:
Haha...sorry for rambling on....I hope everyone is having a great Friday!
Jina - I'd never ever ever ever ever ever be able to hold it in as long as you have! I think I told like 6 people right when I saw the line...lol.
AFM - hmm.. this weekend will probably end up with me sitting in the couch. I feel so LAZY lately. I mean, I don't even want to cook dinner or do laundry. Well, I never want to do that stuff, but I realllly don't now. I talked with a friend of mine who has the same due date as me - her ultrasound showed a gestational sac and a yolk sac but the tech wasn't sure she could see a baby, so she goes back this coming Friday. Talking with her makes me feel bad for worrying... I mean, we saw a baby and a heartbeat.. but then again, she could have O'd late..so I try to keep my worries to myself and make her feel better. I had a lunch date planned with another friend, but I bailed on her. I can't fathom going out to eat with m/s like this... I'm sure I'd enjoy the food, but it probably wouldn't enjoy me.
I kinda hope DH works this weekend. They are approaching the time of year when they don't get overtime at ALL, so I keep telling him to get it while he can.
If I can manage to get off the couch, I'm gonna make cube steak and gravy tonight. Maybe I'll do a load of clothes too. Maybe.
