How far along: 12 weeks (I cheat…..12 weeks tomorrow!)
Next Appointment: April 26 for 3rd prenatal, April 30 for IPS #2

Hi ladies! I’ve been stalking but not posting because I’ve been so busy trying to catch up after a week out of work! Lots to catch up on here too!
@Miss Root: Congrats on your little boy!! 🙂
Estimated Due Date: September 3rd 2012
How far along: 17 weeks and 4 days
Next Appointment: April 19 for the anatomy scan (2 hours!) and April 24 for midwife appointment
How are you feeling: Getting better, actually! Fingers crossed that I will continue to be able to live without the nausea medication! (Today is the first day without needing it!) My back/ribs hurt, though, especially after work.
Gender preference/prediction or outcome: I have two boys!
Weight gain: -0.5 pounds. I lost 8 pounds from MS in the very beginning and I haven’t gained it back yet. This worries me 🙁
What are you researching: Not much – I’m trying to be a good girl and get my wedding thank yous out before the shower invitations! With my mom’s cancer and the pregnancy, the time has flown by!

@Audreysdance: I am not leaving that scan until they get a perfect nub shot. NOT LEAVING. But my husband can get his hands on an ultrasound machine because he manages a imaging center….so basically I’ll get ultrasounds for free whenever I want! But the girls there don’t specialize in OB US so they wouldn’t be able to tell me gender, they’d just be able to show my baby if ever I felt the immediate urge to check on him/her.
When do you girls plan on having showers? I think I want mine before the summer ends but as close to the end of summer as I can get. I wanna be BIG! Many over Labor Day weekend? First week of sept?
Post # 297
@TurtleDoves: yay! Heheh.
Looks like my shower will be early may. I’ll be about 24 weeks by then so big enough for some good belly rubs I think. Mine is gonna be small because I moved recently and only know a small handful of people close by.

Estimated Due Date: September 9, 2012
How Far Along: 16 wks 5 days… but I’ve been measuring ahead by about 4 days since the beginning so I’ve been saying I’m 17 weeks 🙂
Next Appointment: April 27, just the quickie check in with my doctor
How are you Feeling: Good. I’ve been lucky to have an easy pregnancy, so now it’s a question of when my energy will come back. I have a feeling I won’t get it back until after MiniRoot leaves for college!
Gender Preference/Prediction or Outcome: BOY!!! Found out today!!! WooooO!!!! I always had a feeling it was a boy.
Weight Gain: 4 lb
What are you Researching: strollers, car seats, nursery decor
What have you Bought: Maternity clothes, although I don’t really need them (yet), new bras (those I definitely needed!). Nothing for baby yet- we were waiting to find out the gender and now it’s shopping time!!
My darling Mother-In-Law told me that her best friends want to throw me a shower- in August. I think I have convinced her that June or July would be better- I want to have plenty of time after the shower to get everything else in order.

I’m a sapphire mama too!
MissRoot congrats on your little boy!
maybe we can start a google doc like the spring mamas had on their earlier threads. That way we can update it when we get info!
Estimated Due Date: September 6th, 2012
How far along: 17 weeks 1 day
Next Appointment: April 9th for my anatomy scan! Then April 10th for a monthly appointment. I just switched doctors (long story) so it will be the first time I meet my new doc.
How are you feeling: I feel awesome. Way better than the first trimester. Hubs and I took a really long bike ride yesterday and it was wonderful. I am feeling sort of fat. I want a definite bump!
Gender preference/prediction or outcome: most people guess girl from my nub shot. I have felt like its a girl from day one, and hubs is convinced it’s a boy, but I think it’s more to tease me because I alwayyyys say she. We’ll know in about a week!
Weight gain: 4-5 pounds. I didn’t check my weight in the beginning, but I’ve been eating a looot and I’m up about 5 pounds from what I can remember.
What are you researching: When I should start showing. When I will feel movement. I think I may have felt some in the past few days!
What have you bought: a couple of books and a bunch of long shirts with stretch in them:)

Yay! There are all the Sapphire mamas! I knew we were out here, I just kept feeling alone because it seemed like I was further along than everyone else.So many of us have due dates that are close together too! That’s so exciting!
Post # 301
Estimated Due Date: Officially 7 October 2012
How Far Along: I’m 13 weeks tomorrow (Sunday my time)
Next Appointment: April 23 with my midwife
How are you Feeling: Pretty good, I was lucky enough not to have any MS but I certainly had days where I felt pretty average and the last few days I’ve been feeling ok.
Gender Preference/Prediction or Outcome: No feeling or preference at this point and we’re not sure if we’ll find out the sex or not.
Weight Gain: Nothing so far, but my shape has certainly changed.
What are you Researching: strollers,
What have you Bought: New bras and a couple of baby books.
I had my second midwife appointment yesterday, baby was a we bit shy but we got to hear the heartbeat which was awesome 🙂 Turns out I have excellent iron stores (above the healthy levels!), no HIV or syphillus (good to know) and my blood type is A+. All in all, a good appointment and we meet again towards the end of April.
