Ah crud, I'm sorry- I was so excited to find a 'fix'.. Ugh, it is probably all device-dependent. I am sure they are working to fix everything.

Yay!!! Jenjy gets to join us! Grats on your BFP!!!

AFM, So... Today I am making an order of Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes for a friend that ordered them.... I think I'm going to have to charge more than $20 per dozen of these next time for all that has to go into them.
I have already made the pastry custard from scratch. It was actually pretty easy! Now I am about to make the sponge cake cupcakes and then on to the ganache. YUMM!

Your cupcakes sound incredibly complicated and delicious! More than 20$ per dozen sounds reasonable!

Bad wolf you are adorable.

Good luck Maof1! Hope they turn out yummy.

A little nervous this week bc I am approaching 12 weeks. My next appt isn't until next week at 13 weeks. I miscarried with my first baby right at 12 weeks. I'm terrified I'm going to go in and hear no heartbeat next week. Especially since my nausea is gone.
However meet my newest symptom. Constipation!!! Can I take ex lax? I seriously go days with out going.

Praying everything goes well this time around! I have my appt this Friday and it will put me 2 days shy of 12 weeks. We are supposed to hear the heartbeat with the Doppler then. I'm so nervous that nothing will be there...

AFM,
Here is the finished product of my cupcakes.

Mobile finally works!!

I've been up off and on since 2am. Muffin has been having a field day kicking my bladder. It's now almost 7:30. So much for sleeping. The dogs are even annoyed with me. Oops.

I found out the blood work I needed for the genetic testing is the standard follow up and part of the second trimester testing. And in July, we get the full anatomy scan. The one that confirms all toes and fingers, the breakdown of measurements, etc etc. I'm just hoping we can tell if muffin is a boy or a girl on the 16th. If muffin's growth is really 2 weeks ahead of schedule, there shouldn't be a reason not to besides baby shyness. Fingers crossed.

The Dr's say I just have it really bad and to make sure I don't get dehydrated again- which has a proven complicated task. We are 9 weeks. Glad to hear things are going well with everyone else. Heathy babies and happiness to all.

After being really reluctant we had our 20 week ultrasound. It was pretty cool. Didn't have one with my son and it didn't change anything so I thought "what's the point"? But it sure was neat to see the baby. Our gender picture is in an envelope. We don't want to know til baby comes out. I feel like it is a girl bc of how crazy I've been and all the extra CM from day one. Different than with my son but who knows? I have a midwife appt tomorrow. Baby is moving like crazy! I just love it! So glad to not be sick anymore.

More excitement, we got our house key yesterday, moving July 1st bc previous owners are renting back til then. Can't wait to move in and get all set up for baby! Including getting all my cloth dipes out of storage! Fun!!!

Thanks, Harmony!

Thanks, apeydef! I understand the nervousness. Which day next week is your appointment?

Wow, maof1, those cupcakes are seriously delicious looking!

badwolf, aw, what a sweet little baby!

edubluv, thank you! And yay that your 20 week U/S went well! You have wonderful patience to have the gender pic in an envelope and not open it!!

AFM, I spotted red this morning but my test this morning looked good for 12DPO. After having 5 losses that started with spotting, I'm realistic that my stay in here this time might be short... yet staying hopeful as well. As long as the tests get darker...

Your BFP looks great to me! It's darker than mine was at 12dpo. Praying you have a sticky this time and the spotting is a fluke.

Hi all! Been busy here, trying to keep up, but things are so crazy right now. I have to read through and then post personals.


AFM 14 weeks today. Wondering if the constant worry of loss ever goes away. I thought it would by now? Oh well, Little is still in there, fluttering away. I love when the kicks tell me that everything is still good. I have a Doppler, but I try really hard not to use it unless my anxiety is too high. I've only used it twice so far.
We go for the anatomy scan on the 27th, and have DD's 5th bday party on the 28th, so we will announce it at the party. Well, as long as Little cooperates

Hi everyone! Just popping in fresh off our first anniversary/babymoon getaway. We needed that little break. I did come back to the work to a hellstorm but I'll manage. 11 weeks and counting. I go back on Thursday (tomorrow) to complete my examination we didn't finish at my 9 week appointment. Hoping to see the baby again and hear that heartbeat. Other than that, I'm ok besides the exhaustion and the food aversions.

Naturallymo and dmariev so glad you ladies are doing good!!

I'm 12 weeks today. My belly is still not popping too much just bloated. I think that's mostly from lack of going to the bathroom! I never really show too much until 4-5 months though! I have gained 5 lbs though. So I'm on track there. I'm still nervous until I hear the heartbeat next week. I tried the iphone Doppler thing but didn't work. Just made me worry more. Still haven't felt any flutters yet but I'm sure it will be within the next couple weeks. Another good note.... We planned our summer vacation!! We always go Father's Day week. We are going up to my BILs first for three days. He lives in a Forrest area of the state and my husband and daughter are going to go four wheeling! We have a four wheeler. Then we are going more north to a lake. Beautiful town with shops and fun stuff to do! I'm very excited.

I turned 15 weeks yesterday, and my bloat is going down some and now my overall belly is actually smaller than it was a few weeks ago, although my uterus itself is definitely growing growing growing. I had the "old moms'" blood work done and should be hearing back any day, but I just texted her to ask if we had results yet, and b/c of the timing of when the draw was (the Friday before Memorial Day), there's a chance they might not be able to use that sample. But the company rep told them to send it in anyway and see what the lab said, and I'm thinking (hoping?) that if it was an unusable sample, they would have heard something before now, and that they're just processing it like normal. Hoping to hear something this week in any case.

edubluv and maof1, thanks!!

Thank you, apeydef! I would guess this next week is going to crawl for you -- I can't wait for you to go in and get reassurance that all is OK!!

dmariev, what a great belly shot! I'd say you have no choice but to announce, ha! That's great!! Beautiful! As for worrying, I would say I was always a bit worried although I did relax a bit after 30 weeks or so. I wish I could say, oh yes, at some number of weeks, the worry totally goes away. But I don't think it ever really goes away, it just morphs. My oldest is 11 and I'm still worried, lol.

Glad you had a great vacation, Mo!

Harmony, which blood test did you decide to do?

AFM: the spotting went brown and the test was acceptable this morning. Hoping!! If all goes well, I'll look to make an appt with a midwife next month. For now, the doctor has me on progesterone -- not much else can be done. I'm taking it easy and staying relaxed as possible.

@apeydef
iPhone Doppler? Didn't know about that app but I wouldn't let it worry you. Sounds kinda sketchy.

@harmony
Hope you get info soon.

@mo
Glad you had time to relax.

@dmariev
Cute belly.

@jenjy
Glad the bleeding has chilled out. I did the progesterone too. Not sure what it did.

AFM:
I am going to make a midwife appt with a highly experienced home birth midwife. The hospital setting is freaking me out too much! I think my first birth c section birth was a fluke bc baby was posterior. I don't think it will happen again. I think the hospital might push c section more than I am comfortable with. I wish I was blissfully ignorant about the whole situation.

I had my first appointment last week and an ultrasound this week. Unless something goes wrong I won't be having another ultrasound until 30 some weeks to confirm proper placenta placement.
Appointment element well, everything is right on track and i'm breathing a tiny tiny bit easier.

Yay, I hope you like the midwife! My sis-in-law had several babies as VBACs at home - they were such wonderful experiences for her, she started studying to become a midwife.

@LouisaG , wonderful that your appt went well!
