lindsayE :  congratulations on seeing a heartbeat! That is a great sign!

candy08 :  yes, thankfully I felt worse weeks 7-8 so I think I definitely dodged a bullet with that conference, although I still feel horrible, I think I have just gotten used to it. Congrats on finally finishing your IVF meds! That’s great news and I know you will be happy to move on from those!

bjenmomma :  congrats on making it to trimester 2! And hahahaha at the dramatic response, it’s so hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you are in the throws of being miserable.

sparklesbelle :  congrats on your BFP and best wishes for an uneventful 9 months!

amanda1988 :  awwww he is such a cutie!!! How many weeks are you now? I was going to ask my doc about the NT ultrasound but maybe he just figures the NIPT is enough? I’m so happy for you

sunshineglam :  13w 🙂 

yeah, i mean there are a few things they can find on the NT ultrasound they can’t find via NIPT (e.g. they checked his brain had two seperate hemispheres and was developing properly, that his heart didn’t have any hole in it, measured his arms, legs and feet, etc..) but none of it was stuff they wouldn’t catch at the 20 week anatomy scan so I can understand why a doc may say NIPT is enough.  In the end I’d say push for it if you want it–just make sure your insurance will cover it first.

amanda1988 :  ahhh good to know! My doc just didn’t mention it, my next appt is in 4 weeks where I’ll be 14 weeks which I think is still in the window for the NT ultrasound so I will probably just call in the next couple weeks to ask. Since I am of “advanced maternal age” I’m guessing they will cover it, I should ask though.

sunshineglam :  oh yeah, i mean mine is covered because I’m “high risk” due to my heart-shaped uterus.. i assume anyone of “advanced maternal age” is “high risk” and therefore covered too.

they did measure the width of his NT and look at his nose bone, I think I mentioned, but the tech told me over and over it was just a bonus (I did look up the measurement and its well within normal, so she wasnt just saying that to be like “dont freak out..” haha)

candy08 :  Thank you!  Appointment was okay.  My hcg is 100, which the doctor said was a good number for this early in the game.  Weirdly, the urine test that they had me take at the office was negative-but my urine was super diluted (I was very hyrdated and had also just peed before they told me I would be taking a test) and my Dr said she wasn’t worried about that.  Of course I am now worried!  Sigh.  Anyway, I’m going back to get more blood drawn Friday morning and am trying to be calm and optimistic until I get more information.  I miscarried around 8 weeks, and my hcg was only 130 or so…so I’m trying to take some comfort in that and the fact that I’m in a good place right now!

tiffanybruiser :  ohhh god I am so sorry that happened to you! But happy you made it back safely, I had 2 super bad experiences with United and vowed to never fly with them again about a year ago. I leave on Sunday for a week in Paris (flying American) and I have been dreading the flight for weeks. I will be 11 weeks on Monday and I still feel kinda crappy when I am not eating. I plan to pack lots of snacks, water and lemonade to hopefully lessen my nausea. Any tips? 

Congrats on making it out the 1st tri! I cannot wait for that day, I have a little more than 3 weeks to go!

sparklesbelle :  100 is a great number and the blood tests are much more reliable then the urine tests. If it was dilated that was probably the reason it came back negative. I wouldn’t worry and trust the blood test but I understand it is hard. I am 12 weeks and I am still nervous and worry about everything. Probably will though the whole pregnancy. After a loss it just causes so much more worry. Good luck on Friday and fx for great numbers.!!!

tiffanybruiser :  the water consumption has been my hardest challenge, I don’t drink enough but I am going to work at it on this flight. My doc recommended a low dose asprin or compression socks and because I am extra I am doing both (along with getting up every hour – I got an aisle seat for this reason). But the foot exercises sound good, I will have to do those!

Wow, yeah that doesn’t sound very good, especially not when you are already not feeling so hot, having gross looking/smelling/tasting food just makes it worse. I am going to load up on snacks at Target this weekend.

Does anyone know when the 2nd trimester officially begins? I have read anywhere from 12, 13, or 14 weeks starts the 2nd trimester depending on which site I read.

candy08 :  hahahaha I literally just googled this! I think I am going with 14 weeks, no matter how painful it is.
