Glad to hear your scan went well and it is still a girl!!  :D   Mine is Monday and I am starting to get nervous.  My measurements have still not evened out and while I know it is still likely 1 baby....  20w and I am measuring 26w.   I told myself I wouldn't worry as long as I didn't start measuring 6 weeks ahead (gulp).  Ahh well, just a few days and I'll know!!!  I swear at my second scan the subchorionic hemmorhage (sch) looked exactly like a second sac in size...
love all the bellies!!  :D
Okay I finally took one (you don't get to see my face because I have a horrible cold right now LOL!    This is 20 weeks:
Oh my goodness, it sure sounds like they are really trying to alienate you, camprunner.  I have MIL issues (she has mental problems) but I am fortunate, as you are, that my husband is supportive of me over the insanity!  LOL  I am thankful we live in a different country because that sometimes doesn't feel like enough of a buffer!  LOL

I wonder if you load up on water an hour or so before if it might be better.  I'd be bummed for the same reasons, so I understand!!  One of my pgs I was so super sensitive it was actually painful and that was really frustrating for me too!!

Gosh BeanBean that is so scary!  I'm so thankful you got the cerclage in time and that they are being so proactive.  <3  I pray that you will make it farther than you and your Drs ever expect.  Hang in there mama  I'm so thankful you have the support you need!
alaskanmama I have plenty of worries and I think it just comes with experience and knowledge of the things that can go wrong...for me I've had traumatic births so that is what I am worried about.  We had a sch this pg and were basically told baby wouldnt' make it from the start so it's been rough and I don't take anything for granted.  After 2 m/c previously I don't think the anxiety is ever quite gone...but it also makes me thankful and appreciate the miracle that is...
Congrats!!!  :D  I am waiting impatiently for ours...still 3 weeks away as of yesterday!
