Hi ladies. I have been fairly quiet lately because we've been dealing with a lot over here. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and is having surgery next week. It has been very hard. She is a Thyroid Cancer survivor, and it just doesn't seem fair that she has to go through this again, with an even scarier cancer. I've been trying not to get too stressed out because I don't want it to hurt Birdie. We are 14 weeks along now.
Deborah - I am so glad you have found the wonderful adoption agency you have and that you and DH are on the same page. I know you will be an amazing mother.
jenger - welcome! I'm so glad you are pregnant with #2 after all that time. I'm not sure I have any tips on making it to the 12 week mark. I tried to keep distracted, but it wasn't always easy. If you're having any symptoms, I know that feeling them helped assure me that things were still ok. Even at 14 weeks I am still nervous, but am feeling much better about things. Also, posting here does help. The wonderful women here really do get it because they've been through it. I can't wait to hear more about your pregnancy.
wissa - time seems to go so quickly! I can't believe she is 4 months already.
cait - I hope everything is going well.
monkey - it's good to see your name! I hope teething isn't too awful for you guys
AFM - besides what I already posted, we haven't been able to get in with a midwife because they are all completely booked. I started seeing an OB, but we are on several wait lists. I like our OB, so we'll see how it goes. She did a quickie ultrasound at our first appointment and this time Birdie was bouncing around like crazy (the first ultrasound she/he was sleeping and they had to wake him/her up). Here's the picture, it's from 10 days ago..
My nausea hasn't gone away yet. I'm still throwing up several times a day, but haven't been feeling much of anything else. My stomach is hard now, but I'm still not showing. Maybe in a few more weeks.
Lots of good thoughts to everyone!
