Angel babies? 1 lost at 11.5 weeks...that is when I found out, size indicated growth stopped around 9.5 weeks

Due date? not really sure I think it's either April 1st, plus or minus a day or 2 or it's April 13th My ticker is for the later date so that would be super cool if I got to jump ahead about 2 weeks once I get a dating u/s
Any symptoms? Some slight nausea that comes and goes but really is so mild it's not much to speak of, general gastro type issues like cramping, some lower back pain that seems to shift from side to side (side note my sister is also pregnant and due March 30th which is super cool, she says she has this too and explained it like kidney pain which makes sense), headaches, round ligament pulling that comes and goes, tired and low endurance doing anything pysical, and increased pee output. That's mostly all I can think of. It's a long list but they are all mild symptoms and overall I don't feel very pregnant. Hoping everything is healthy in there and I'm just going to have an easy pregnancy this time...I think I've earned it after my previous ones b/c I usually have terrible nausea about halfway through...even had it bad with my loss.

Best moment so far? When that line popped up on the pregnancy test when I was totally expecting a BFN Biggrin

What are you least looking forward to? Possibly finding out baby never developed and my body is just holding onto a mmc
