My cpm does not think it is necessary, but now I have doubts and fears, so I will probably just go through with it.
When you are ready to talk about it let us know. I'm trying to think of everything they test for and what they would want to look at again unless your iron was low or something and I wouldn't think that would be an emergency to be so mean to you. Not cool.

Sorry you are having a rough time Bliss - sending positive vibes on over to you.

We met with our OB yesterday and heard the HB - woo hoo!!! He also said that he will be doing the c-section at 38 weeks unless M's BP is too high and then it will have to be earlier which we really hope not. I think he will take good care of M and seems to understand the whole surrogacy thing really well.

If he is taking out the baby at 38 weeks, that is around May 19 - do I have to join the May DDC now?

Critty, why's he doing a c-section at 38 weeks?

M suffers from severe pre-eclempsia at the end of her pregnancies, having to be hospitalized and everything

Oh no! I'm surprised she's a surrogate if that's true, but hopefully this pregnancy goes better. I'm scared of stuff like pre-eclampsia.

I know! We found out after the transfer of the embryos. She is taking supplements and taking care of herself and we are all thinking positive thoughts. We want surro mama and baby to be healthy, healthy, healthy!

Only a small number of my coworkers knew about my mc. Now that I've announced my new pg I can see them doing the math. I got pg less then 30 days after the mc. I had one just ask me again when I was due. Do I need to address this?

I don't see why you should, unless you're close enough to discuss private matters like that. You're pregnant, you've given them a due date, what more do they need to know? If anyone is prying enough to ask you outright, then I guess you could tell them, "Yes I was pregnant before and miscarried, and got pregnant again, thanks for bringing it up."

I'm speaking from experience here b/c I wasn't nearly circumspect enough myself, and it's really gotten annoying having everybody and their dog knowing everything about my medical history...

I do not think you need to address it unless you are a. comfortable doing so and b. feel you want to do it. It is none of their business or concern when you conceived.

Something stupid that I can't complain about anywhere else...

I feel so good that I hardly feel "pregnant" anymore. Nausea, fatigue, all gone. I know "they say" that second trimester feels better, but (naturally) it's freaking me out mightily. EVEN THOUGH I can feel the critter tumbling about in there, AND use the doppler from time to time... I honestly don't know what it would take to make me feel secure in this pregnancy, short of a real live baby in my arms.

(((((MARA))))))
I know that feeling, although anyone who has eyes can tell by looking at me that I'm pg, so I'm kind of feeding off of the excitement of others. Let me assure you, though, that when you belly really starts growing and you can feel your little Junebug from the *outside* and your dp can feel it too, then you will really feel secure in those moments.

Well I am still feeling nervous, and I am NOT feeling good! I wish I was feeling better, I keep waiting for this second trimester more-energy-less-nausea miracle and its just not happening. I think I'm nervous because I'm still not showing and not feeling movement. I had an ob/gyn appt yesterday, so I know everything's fine, and I even threw up yesterday (2nd time in two weeks, its odd that the days its bad its worse than it was before)

I told my mom this past weekend finally, and will tell my dad and MIL this week, so I guess that's part of why I'm a bit more nervous. Although hitting 16wks for some reason made me relax a tiny bit, wrap my head around this a bit more, since I'm finally looking into birthing classes and the like.

Seafox - I really felt uncomfortable when we told our relatives ... I felt like I had some how jinxed everything. I felt uncomfortable for about a week.

For us, of course, it is really hard to feel that the pregnancy is real, but that's why I love coming here, I live vicariously through you girls! I know that you all really want your babies as much as I do ... not that most people don't want their babies, but after suffering loss, and set back after set back, it becomes even BIGGER to us.

I love getting together with M and seeing how her body is changing. I miss all of the u/s from the fertility clinic, but am so excited that a week from tomorrow we get to hopefully see is it is a girl or boy and to make sure it is healthy! It is a big relief knowing the M can feel the baby moving around, so we know everything is ok. Felt M's tummy today, it is getting really hard - so cool!!!

I hope you all have wonderful holidays (if you celebrate) with your families and next year we will all have a new family member to celebrate with!!!!! Woooooo hoooooo!!!!

Just Checking In

I will be travelling to New Mexico for the next week, so don't be alarmed if I'm not around here-- I'm just on vacation.

Can't wait to come back to see how everybody's doing!
