Lovebug. I'm so, so sorry. greensad.gif

 

Ava's Mama - congratulations! Were you shocked?

post #42 of 76

Lovebug: I'm so sorry. I've reread your post from last week thinking there might have been an indication that something 'might be going on' but nothing. I guess this came as a surprise to all of you. My heart goes out for you.

 

Judybean: LOVE the diapers...so very cute. I haven't started sewing yet. I'd love to but I don't really know what. I'm not great on clothes, they never fit LOL and it's gonna be so hot here that onesies will do. I guess I'll just make some cute burp clothes and maybe MAYBE a sleeping bag.

 

@Ava's Mama: Yay...congrats here too. A boy is awesome.

Lovebug- I am so very sorry for you and your families loss.  There are really no words to express the mystery and pain of loosing a baby. I hope you are able to find peace in these very difficult times.

Congratulations AmySue.

Oh Lovebug I'm so sorry.  I wish there were more I could say, I've been thinking about you since reading your post last week - - it's one thing when it's an outside employer that you're feeling pressure from but having a family run business must make it really hard to balance.  I hope that you have family and friends to support you right now, I'm very sorry and wish you all the best.

Today we found out that we are having a girl. :) So that makes 2 boys and 3 girls for us. I think we might need to add a couple extra bathrooms to the house. ;)

 

I did have some kinda scary news though. She appears to have a cleft lip. I go for a follow up ultrasound next week at the university to see if they can see it better with the higher powered ultrasound machine. But the good news is everything else looked normal. I actually GLAD that I declined the AFP test that would have disclosed this as a neural tube defect because I would have been freaking out worrying that it was something worse.

Congrats on the girl Lauren!  Keep us updated on the follow up ultrasound.  My ultrasound yesterday showed that baby boy has one heart valve with extra skin on it.  Heart is functioning fine and everything else looks great.  They just had to tell me because it can be ONE of the indicators of down syndrome.  But because all my blood tests and the anatomy screen look great, the risk is <1%.  They said I could do amniocentisis to verify, but DH and I agree that it is too risky for the low chances of there really being an issue.  My gutt tells me baby is just fine!

I hope everything is okay with your LO. My youngest had a spot on his heart that was found during the 20 week u/s and everything ended up being just fine. But it definitely had me worried for quite awhile. The u/s tech told me that she sees a lot of spots on hearts (forgot the actual term) and stuff that ends up being normal. This technology can be such a blessing and a curse!

So exciting that everyone is starting to find out what they are having....well, those of us who are too impatient to wait for a surprise. smile.gif. My US is next Friday. Dd is quite insist at that it's a sister, dh is sure that it's a boy (but he thought boy last time, too). I don't have a strong feeling either way (I knew that dd was a girl) but in all my dreams, I dream boy....so we shall see!

Pregnancy hormones story for the day: I was at an elementary school this morning and not long after I got there, there was a fire drill. The kids in the classroom I was in got out in no time, as did the whole school, really. But as we were outside waiting for the principal to send everyone back in, I looked at all of those kids and got inwardly panicked and outwardly teary at the slightest thought of 'what if it were the real deal?' I managed to not actually cry, but man.. Imaginary fire. Hypothetical fire. I can't believe how little it takes these days to set my newly sensitive self off.

hyde, I sympathize. I was at my daughter's parent/teacher this evening and started crying when she counted to 100 because I was so proud. My ex-DH and her teacher looked at me like I had 9 heads. 

post #55 of 76

This morning I threw up which caused me to pee my pants. Right now pregnancy feels like a series of disgusting humiliations.

post #56 of 76

Oh, Mole. I hope you were at home still?

 

Erika, yes! on the 9 heads.. and at the fire drill, I was standing next to my boss. Ha!

Oh no..happened to me too during my first 14 weeks. I threw up and peed and DH commented.."I just saw you squirt" I cried when he said it and started laughing hysterically right after...aaahh pregnancy...it's beautiful :)

Yes I was still at home, thank goodness! Oh MissE! My sweetheart was on the computer and did not notice a thing. Or he was studiously ignoring it- he HATES when I throw up. I am not a quiet sufferer. It's mortifying to think of him seeing. But then again, turning crying into laughter is a wonderful, wonderful thing :).

Sometimes it feels that way. And includes the things pregnancy does to your body even after you've given birth :/

Glad you were still at home at least. Here's to a day filled with much goodness and light even after a rough start!

Lauren- congrats on the girl!!!!

 

Ava's Mama- sorry to hear they found something that will make you worry.  I think your risk is low and you are making a good decision.  Warm thoughts..stillheart.gif

 

Hyde- I'll tear up at the drop of the hat as well.  

 

Mole- my entire first trimester- I was at home but when my vomiting got really bad I peed my pants a lot- my whole body would convulse and just PUSH- I was so glad I was not at work.  So humiliating- so this is pregnancy... hope it settles down for you!

 

My OB said her best guess was a girl- but after my u/s yesterday......

 

broc1.gifbroc1.gif      IT'S A BOY!!!     broc1.gifbroc1.gif

 

I am soooo thrilled- I would have been either way.  My dh, mom and friends all knew it was a girl.  My dh has a son, all of the children in his generation (5) are boys, our twins that never made it were boys.  I just knew it was going to be a baby boy.  I am so happy- this really solidifies this pregnancy and makes me feel like it is going to happen this time.
