Tear: Hoping everyone is healthy and baby decides to come soon!
RCR! Congrats! I missed the boat as I've been offline and traveling for work the past few weeks. YEA!!! This is wonderful news.
As for symptoms, I'm at 11 weeks and have only had three total days where I felt nauseous/pukey (2 at 4 weeks and 1 day at 10.5 weeks). Otherwise just some big boobies and tired from the progesterone. As soon as I stopped progesterone supps last week, my energy definitely shot up a notch! I have some sore nips this week and a little sciatica pain from starting to sleep on my side but nothing else really. I was remarking last week (before my puke day) that I barely felt pregnant -- won't say that again, b/c my next day after SUCKED!!! lol...
And Tear!! YAY Hope all goes wonderfully tonight! Blessings!!
As for everyone else, so much good news... I'm waaaaaay behind so will take some time to catch up... but congrats to all the new BFPers!! I'm rooting for all and will try to catch up next weekend, as work is insane this week.
AFM -- 11w0d, best I know the three beans (now "limes") are still ticking, another U/S later this week to confirm. Hopefully all still going strong. Broke a tooth this morning (sux!!) but otherwise just dandy...
i'm cheering you on Tear!! Go baby GO!!!!
guppy, great to hear from you! glad all is going well and you're feeling good!
rcr, i did a mental cartwheel for you and your beta. i'd do a real one but i'd probably hurt myself.
afm, only got 2 hours of sleep last night and was SUPER cranky. plus it felt like i was having a day long hot flash, and my back started hurting out of the blue. i went to the chiro for an adjustment and hopefully that will help. all i want to do is call out of work tomorrow. it's terrible. i know i should save my days. plus i have an ob appt tomorrow so at least i can sleep in a little longer. i know i'll be even more tired after the babies are born, but at least then i'll have babies to look at. right now it just feels like i have a boulder on my lap.
Tear - I hope all went well last night. Maybe you are in labor now?
Aura - thanks for not really doing cartwheels and hurting yourself.
guppy - glad you are doing well, and that your three little limes are doing well.
AFM - I have an u/s appointment for Thursday morning. I won't yet be six weeks yet, so they might not see anything. I am kinda wishing that I wasn't doing it, because if they don't see anything I will just worry. I would rather wait until they are supposed to see something so that I will know for sure one way or the other. Last time I was pregnant, my betas were rising and rising, but there was no fetal pole - just an empty sac. So I know that a missed m/c can still happen with rising betas. My betas were still rising even when I had a D&C several weeks later.
Tear - thinking of you and hoping all is going smooth and you are making great progress and maybe holding your little guy in your arms already!!!!! So excited for you!!!!
rcr - Holy beta!!!! What was your first beta number again? Your first one was last Monday right??? So this one was a full wk after???? Is that right??? If i remember right, I think w/ our twin preg we saw two sacs at 6wks and they told us then that one had a good heartbeat but they weren't sure if the other was going to end up being a vanishing twin and then i think we went back at 8 wks and you could see both heartbeats and hear them clear as day. So you just never know. Also, sometime the dates are kinda off so if you don't see anything right away if you wait a wk or so there might be a huge growth the next time you go in. I totally understand how it can be totally nerve wracking. Is DH going w/ you or will he be out of town on work? Can't wait to hear your news. What time is your appt so i don't have to keep stalking my email w/ excitement??
Aura - ugh for the back pain and not sleeping!! Hope your chiro helped and that you got more sleep last night and that your appt today w/ your OB goes well. Keep up the good work mamma!!!!!
guppy - I can't even believe you are almost to that 12 wk point!!! Yeah!!!!!! What is your next step?? What day is your next u/s? Keep us posted!!!
Hope everyone else is doing well!!!!!!
AFM - 5 days to go- not much going on here!!!!!! Yesterday i was having a lot more pressure and shooting pains in my cervix which i'm hoping is a good sign. Haven't had any more spotting since last week. I'm really going to be disappointed if i see my OB on Thurs and we have gotten no where when we are due this coming Sunday!!!!! Ugh!!!! We will see. Just trying to tie up loose ends and hoping to drag DH to BRU tonight to get a few items that we still need off of our registry so we will be all set. DH was convinced yesterday that we would have to baby today b/c i kept saying that I just wanted to get past April fools day and the 39 wk mark for sure and then I'd be fine w/ him coming when he wanted. Oh and I think DH has pregnancy brain... is that possible for it to rub off on him??? LOL. Okay, well i need to jump in the shower while Abby is sleeping or i'll be in trouble. Good training for having a baby!!!! Picking up a craig's list baby item today too which is a little scary after all these stories you hear about the crazy people out there. I'm sure it will be fine.
rcr - I am so excited for you! That's a GREAT strong beta! I know how you feel, too early isn't going to help your mind rest any.... I'm hoping they can see something!
guppy - That's not so bad for 3 :-) Let us know how the ultrasound goes.
aura - that sucks, I'm sorry, hang in there. Can't believe how close you are getting!
blue - almost there! Man the last 39 weeks have flown by (for me LOL). I had so much pressure and pain in my cervix before I had DS, the good news there is it was in part because he was so low, which was what made my labor nice and quick! Can't wait to hear!!
Tear - YEAH!!! I am so freaking excited, I cannot wait to hear. I keep thinking about you and checking in to see what's going on!
rcr, I was looking for a collection of what scans looked like at different weeks gestation. Found this cool website that goes week by week. Here is what week 5 would be http://www.baby2see.com/development/ultrasound_sonogram/first_trimester_scans.html#week5
I hope that little ones are here for the long hall!
blue, lol, have to laugh about the April fools baby. My sister had her baby girl this morning April 2 at 1:30 a.m. My sister was so scared her daughter would be born on April fool's day but once her water broke, my sister just kept praying that it would happen sooner. Glad you made it through April 1 still pregnant as well.
Tear78, I hope your little boy makes his exit into the world sooner rather than later! I know you are ready.
Tear: I am so excited for you!! And I think it's awesome they used a foley bulb instead of meds! Sounds like it is working. :-)
RCR: I think my beta was around 5k at the 1 week later beta - I'm betting you have 2 in there! They should be able to see how many sacs - it's just maybe too early for a heartbeat.
Lilac - that link was really helpful. Thanks!
Tear - hang in there! I am glad things are moving along. I can't want to hear an update from Carlyle.
Blue - my appointment is at 9:15. The office is an hour away, so I will probably update when I get back to work around 11 or so. DH is going to be out of town for work. I can't believe you have 5 days to go! I can't wait for you to meet your baby, after such a long wait!
So Tear is still in labor (!tough cookie!) and is now dilated to 6cm, having regular contractions, and progressing slowly but steadily. Sounds like she's having some back labor (counterpressure is helping), and she's been laboring all night (from what I hear she wasn't able to sleep through the contractions even with the Ambien). Our mom says that they're giving her some Nubain to help her get a little sleep this morning and I'm really hoping that her body and baby's body respond to it better than mine did (I got whacky on Nubain) because she could really use some sleep. I'm hearing all of this 3rd hand (through her dh and our mom), so I'm going a bit crazy over here (having spent most of the day on a plane yesterday) and just sending her love. It was incredibly difficult to leave her yesterday! It sounds like her labor is so similar to my first, and it was a bear. I'm hoping that she's feeling good and proud of herself to be dealing with such a long labor--it's hard!!! Send some love!
