Danny - EEeeeeeeek! I've been thinking about you all day today. I wonder what time your induction is; who knows, you may even be cuddling two gorgeous newborns even as I type this!!! Anyway, thinking of you and hoping to hear from you soon, but I know you are going to be super busy as of today. So happy for you!
Jina - No, they didn't do anything for my dizziness. They said something incomprehensible about crystals and sent me home. LOL!!!! I'm glad that the room isn't spinning any more, but hoping that you feel back to normal in the next day or so.
Haha, I did not make it 3 days in a row, unfortunately. I made it 2, and then today I had juuuuuust the very smallest bit of pinkish-red. That's what it has been like for about the last week, every other day or so, just a tiny amount of spotting once a day. Not enough to send me running for another u/s, just enough to annoy me and insert a little bit of worry. LOL Did I mention I HATE having a SCH?!? Oh well, I finally got up the nerve to order my doppler which is supposed to be delivered by Monday, so I am hoping I am able to find the hb myself on Monday and soothing myself that way.
Haha, I ordered mine on Amazon. Jina gave me a link to get the same kind as her, but I sat on my hands too long and missed a big sale they were having, so I ended up ordering one that looked comparable on Amazon. I'm a little worried that I'm going to drive myself crazy if I can't find the h/b, but assuming I can, I think it will be extremely comforting.
Hi guys I posted an update on my Sept2012 board with a picture, only have a minute
TTC since 2009
8/30/12 Lucas Anthony & Olivia Ann arrived at 37 weeks
Danielle, CONGRATS! Your little ones are absolutely precious. I am so happy for you and your DH. Enjoy this time with your little miracles! ((((((HUGS)))))))
Alissa, LOL @ the ear doctors. I hope I don't have any lose crystals in my ear.
UGH! Sorry about the annoying spotting. Stupid SCH! GTFO! It sounds like it's getting lighter though so that's good. Your u/s is coming up soon!!! I can't wait for you to share pics of your little baby with us.
SO glad you ordered a doppler. That's too bad that you weren't able to get the same one as mine. I just looked and it looks like they are still having a sale? Anyhoo, I can't wait for you to be able to find the h/b. Remember not to freak out if you can't find it. K? Though, once you find it, you should be able to find it again and again with ease. I've been able to find and listen to the h/b ever yday since 9 weeks.
Jessica, yes, you can buy or rent a doppler! It's been so nice to be able to listen to the h/b every day. You should definitely look into getting one.
AFM, FIL is set to arrive tomorrow which should be fun. I'm still trying to take it easy. I was on my treadmill yesterday walking and lightly jogging for half an hour or so and then the room started almost spinning again. So freaking annoying.
So, when I first wake up, I feel around to get a feel of where my uterus is every morning before getting out of bed. It's like inch below my belly button and is hard and sticks out while in bed. I get all excited (every freaking morning) thinking yay a bump! But, as soon as I get out of bed my uterus goes back down and disappears for the rest of the day. WTF?! Why is it moving around?! LOL I'm not like super eager to have a huge bump or anything but it would be nice to have a little bump.
Danny - Your babies are soooooo gorgeous. I am over the moon for you! I hope that you are feeling well after your delivery, and getting as much rest as you can. Please update us on how you are doing when you can (I know you're going to be crazy busy from now on!)
Jina - When you sent me the link, the doppler was like $60. I kept putting off because I keep getting worried that I won't need it. When I finally decided to suck it up and buy it, it had gone up to like $120!!! Eeeeep! So I found one on Amazon that got good ratings and looks very similar, for about $60. Now I cannot freaking WAIT.
Eeee! I just looked at the USPS website, and they expect it to be delivered today!!!!! Oh I hope I can find the HB, because I know I am going to freak if I can't. I just keep telling myself that it could easily be too early, and not to freak, but still.....*deep breaths...*
ooook.. So a friend of mine bought a doppler but she's a big girl, like me and she said she could never find the heartbeat. Should I even invest in one? I KNOW it would bring me peace of mind, I'll probably get one anyway.. but I'm gonna need like super extra strength..
Danny - I haven't gone to your thread but I AM SO FREAKIN EXCITED FOR YOU!!!
I got mine last night, and here is what I will say...even when you do hear something, it's harder than I thought it would be to interpret. I'm still not totally convinced I actually heard the h/b, although I am certain I heard the placenta. Over all, I do feel a little better about everything because I'm certain that something is happening in there, but it's still harder than I thought to tell for sure.
Maybe you could see if the nurse can find the h/b at your next appointment (at least at my OB, that is standard at every appt after 10-12 weeks) and if she can, then you probably can.
Hope you ladies are doing well. Anyone done anything special this weekend? I worked Mailed the rent on my way home - it doesn't have to "be" there until the 5th and it will be, but my landlord is a punk...and I'm sure I'll get a call today about the rent. UGH I'm getting mad just thinking about it. I've never been late anywhere I've lived..but I'm not early either.
DH's fam is having a Labor Day cookout but DH is at work. I was invited, but I'm not sure I'll go. My emotions have been all over the place lately and I kinda just wanna be by myself.
My birthday is Friday - I'll be 30 years old.
Got a wedding invite in the mail today... those two people are all wrong for one another. The girl's been cheating on the guy since day one...but they aren't my friends, they're DH's and he doesn't wanna step in ..and I don't blame him...that could cost him a friendship.
This post was fantastically random.
Jessica - Did you end up going to your DH's farm's cookout? I don't blame you for feeling moody and wanting to be by yourself. Ugh, that is rough when you see someone (like the guy that is getting married) headed straight into trouble but you don't feel like it's your place to warn them. I wonder why people bother getting married if they are cheating on their soon to be spouse? I don't get that; if you want to be single and date around, be single and date around, don't get married!
Jina - Hey there, fellow co-host. Hope you had a great weekend.
AFM - Weekend was a mixture of good and bad. I had the worst "bleed" I have had so far complete with a clot on Monday, which totally freaked me out, and of course my drs office was closed for Labor Day. Luckily, I used my doppler and am 95% sure I found the h/b (sounded like a little bom, bom, bom, bom, bom, way faster than my heartbeat) so that sort of made me feel better (although I am still nervous, like "What if that wasn't really the heartbeat? What if I was hearing my own heartbeat echoing around in there or something???") I talked to DH about going to the ER because it freaked me out so bad, but in the end decided not to since there isn't anything they could do (other than possibly put my mind at ease) and I have an u/s already scehduled for tomorrow. *Shakes fist at SCH* But after that one (big) spot of red blood and clot, no more spotting (so far) so whatever.
