Your age/your partner’s age: 34/35
Baby #: 2
How far along are you/when’s your due date? 9w4d (by dating scan), Dear Daughter Nov 16, 2018
What is your TTC/MC history? TTC 8 months for #1, TTC 4 months for #2, MMC at 12 weeks (growth stopped at 10 weeks), TTC on and off (LOOP procedure) for another year (6 cycles trying), BFP at 3w3d – and so far it’s sticking.
Having any symptoms? Nausea, food aversions, general gross feeling, bigger/sore boobs, bloating, very mild occasional cramping, husband aversions, and fatigue.
What’s the next milestone for you in this pregnancy? My dr is sending me for an ultrasound during week 10 (just for reassurance), then I have my NT scan/blood draw on May 8 followed by a geneticist consult as my daughter and I both have a gene mutation.
Any coping strategies for dealing with the anxiety that comes with pregnancy after a loss? I’m praying lots, thinking positive, and my husband I and assure each other that we got through a rough MC once, and if we needed to we could do it again. I had a doppler that I purchased during my last pregnancy, but it’s not working this time (it seems to have crapped out, as I can’t even find my own heartbeat).
What are you most excited about with this pregnancy? I’m really hoping that I don’t have an anterior placenta again, so I can feel more movement. While I’m starting to allow myself to feel some excitement, I don’t think I’ll be really excited till around 14 weeks.
Any babymoon plans?? None, we’re probably heading to the west coast for some camping in August, but bringing the toddler, so it’s not going to be a super chill vacation.
