Hey ladies – hope it’s not too late to join! I was a regular for awhile before and after my wedding but haven’t been around for a few months.

Due date: 12/26/2014 from LMP 03/21

How many DPO were you when you got your BFP (if you were tracking?): Wasn’t tracking.

How long did you try before your BFP? Trick question for me. 6 months NTNT but not really trying, and somehow managed to miss every fertile window – UGH! But then we DTD twice in April, and I thought we missed it again because it was a day before and a day after my fertile window and BAM. Pregnant. So really only 1 month.

Do you have any kids yet, or is this the first? First one here!

Any symptoms yet? All of them lol. Nausea, tender breasts, exhaustion/fatigue, heightened sense of smell, food aversions, food cravings (much more rare than the aversions), peeing every hour, bloating, and I’m waking up at 530a every day for no reason.

What are you most excited about? EVERYTHING! Seriously, everything. Even the non-fun things. I’m just really excited to finally be starting a family with my awesome husband who is amazing with kids.

What are you most nervous about? Just hoping for a sticky, and then healthy baby. I’m afraid of losses and I’m a little apprehensive about how much my body can take since I’m so miserable already.

What will you miss most while pregnant? Turkey sandwiches and Dr. Pepper.

Hi Ladies! Soooo I had my first appointment with the OBGYN last Thursday. There isn’t much to report but I’ll tell you what happened. We waited 2 hours and then we were finally seen.. Took my weight, asked a bunch of family history questions and then questions about my health and DH’s health. Then exam time, she told me to strip down and she would come, 20 mins later she comes in, does a quick pelvic exam and then says “ok so I’m not going to try to hear the heart beat because your uterus is flipped and you are under 10 weeks so it’s hard to hear”… Ok but I’m a couple days away from being 10 weeks.. She says no she won’t try and also because I’m underweight it makes it harder to hear anything. HUH underweight? I’ve never been told that from a Dr in my whole life. So all in all, not much happened.. we were told that we could go and pay for a private ultrasound if we wanted to but we have one booked for June 5 so we decided to wait. I was disappointed, we were waiting for that appointment to give us some sort of confirmation but nothing. Anyway, on to the next one…<br /><br /><br />

octoberbaby:  That is strange that she wouldn’t even try!  I also have a retroverted uterus, am underweight, and was 9w1d at the time of my first appointment, and they did a transvaginal u/s to see and hear the heartbeat.  When I got home, though, I used the doppler I ordered for the first time, and was able to find the heartbeat just fine!  It took a couple minutes to make sure I wasn’t hearing my heartbeat (or the blood pumping through the placenta), but sure enough I found it (175 bpm, which was the same rate recorded at my u/s).  I’m not planning on using the doppler often, as there are conflicting reports of the effects of overusage of at-home devices, but if you’re interested, the one I have is the Sonoline-B (and it’s FDA approved).  It shipped in 2 days.

mfitzp1:  I know, I was bummed that she didn’t even try. She doesn’t have the u/s machine at her office either so we didn’t do it. It’s so funny, everyone I have spoken to have a retroverted uterus too! She told me only 25% of the pop do but it seems like it’s more common than we think!

AlmostMrsShield:  Congratulations- I’m a little late, of course, there will probably be a February board soon! I wish I could help, but I’m only a group member, not an admin, so I’m not familiar with the intricacies of setting up the group… I’m going to tag our two experts, maybe they know.

Here is a picture of Baby L =)

octoberbaby:  I think everyone is too busy chatting on the FB group and hardly ever come on here to be honest. Hope all is well with you πŸ™‚ Hope your NT scan is well today! I am 12+1 and had my second midwife appointment this morning and was able to hear the baby’s heartbeat with the doppler – so amazing.
