I don’t post very often but I thought I would update after our anatomical today. I am 18w 1d today and we had our anatomical at 9am. I was sooo nervous, i could honestly barely sleep all night. Our tech was amazing and even though they arent supposed to tell you anything he walked me through everything and showed me everything. The baby looked great and was wiggling around like crazy through the whole thing and we also found out that it’s a girl!!!! We are so excited and can’t wait to finally meet her and be able to call her by her name and not ‘it’!!
It’s done, it’s done!!! Our google doc is done!!!
I added everyone I could see that did the most recent thread “update.” The doc is editable by everyone so feel free to add yourself or update your info. I put everyone in order by due date, so let’s keep it organized! You can add rows above or below by highlighting a row and clicking insert at the top!
YAY! let me know if we need anything else.
Also, when we start a new thread try to post the link to it in the first post so we can keep it in an easy place to find.
I’ve been quiet lately because I’ve not had anything cheerful to say (horrible morning/all day sickness) but after a whole THREE DAYS without puking, I’m feeling more optimistic : )
I’ve been reading everyone’s updates though, it’s so exciting how quickly this first trimester is going!
Okay so a little refresher…..
Estimated Due Date: November 6
How far along: 9 weeks
Next Appointment: April 27 for full physical
How are you feeling: Last week, really miserable, some days the sickness was starting at 5am and I was puking up a storm all day and feeling crap the whole day and night. The last few days have been so much better though and with my new pills from the doc, I’m hoping I have many more puke-free days ahead! Yeah!
Gender preference/prediction or outcome: Ooooh not sure – will be delighted either way
Weight gain: A few pounds – what morning sickness takes away, excessive chocolate eating gives back : )
What are you researching: I’ve kind of stopped that for now
What have you bought: Nothing for baby, plenty of meds for me : )
@yellowbird: yay! Thank u thank u thank u for the googledoc! I might have to change my due date up/down a day or two after my NT scan because me & my doctor are argueing over due dates haha (i know, i didnt go to med school or anything, but im putting up a good fight!)
I can’t believe how much I’m feeling the boys now! They move a lot when I eat and when I’m in the car (they don’t like the seat belt!). It’s such strange feeling but so cool at the same time!
I’m super excited today because we scored a free pack and play on Freecycle in our area… I love that site. DH is going to pick it up around lunchtime!
I’m also excited because I can say that I’m done with work at the end of this month! My job has been jerking me around about light duty (I’m a visiting nurse) and they still haven’t provided a position, so I told them that I’m going on leave at the end of April! They totally understand. I’ve been having a lot of back pain and sciatic pain at work from standing/bending, and my belly is already getting huge!
I bought a support belt to help me with my back pain… even though it was expensive (I got it at Destination Maternity because I couldn’t wait for it to be shipped…) it has really helped so far. It comes with a hot/cold pack that tucks in the back, so that should be helpful too!
(TMI alert) – Is anyone else kind of swollen in the lady parts department? I’ve been feeling a bit uncomfortable down there, and I know that there’s a ton of blood flow in that area now but it’s not the greatest feeling!
Things are going well here too! I am starting to feel a bit better during the day. I do still get sick every once in a while (last night when going to bed, I felt awful), and still really tired, but definitely not as often as before! I’m still super scared that I’m going to show up to one of my appointments and something is going to be wrong. Any others who have had a MC feel the same way? Does that fear in the back of your head ever go away?
