Guys I'm really starting to get nervous I have felt no movement that I'm sure of! I have a bad feeling. I'm hoping I'm just overly worrying and it's not intuition. My next appt is wed and I'll be 17 weeks. With baby #2 I think I felt movement by now!!

Sorry for the worrisome feelings! Hope all is well. Sending you good thoughts.

Personally, those first movements seem so faint. I didn't really feel them til late in the 17 th week. I was told baby's position in my tilted uterus can make it extra hard to feel.

I'm sure none of my rambling will mean much. Hearing a heartbeat will help. Good luck!

No blood.. Just a lot of gas and stomach upset.
Yay HB!!! Sorry about the tummy pain.

AFM, attempting to enjoy this holiday weekend. We went to DH's friend's daughter's 1st birthday party yesterday. It was fun. Though as always, I felt awkward. More people I don't know VS people I know, and my networking skills lack these days. Being on crutches and pregnant is not my strongest moment, and that's all people want to talk about even though I don't want to. I will gladly talk about Madison, but I hate talking about this damn foot! People don't pay attention though.

Hope everyone had a Happy 4th!
I tend to be a homebody and have a hard time being social with ppl unless I've know them a while. I always feel awkward. DH and I always have to have a game plan for me to participate in social activities! Haha. So basically I get you!

Praying everything is okay for you. We just have to remember that EVERY pregnancy is different. I didn't realize how close our pregnancies are! I hit 16 weeks today.

AFM, I've been off here for a while because I've been feeling pretty down. I'm slowly getting to feeling better. Just taking time.
DS heard his soon to be sibling's heart beat this past Thursday. His face lit up like a Christmas tree.
I go in on the 24th for our gender ultrasound.
The doc did schedule me for an ultrasound on this coming Friday though. She thinks I may have an enlarged thyroid. Said my bloodwork looked fine but is still having me do an ultrasound. Hoping that is all it is.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Ok I got this text from a friend yesterday, I'm posting to see your opinion. Background: she had a MC in March at like 8 weeks. Now her husband are back to trying. She also told me she normally does not get CM around ovulation time. I think she either ovulated late or us getting CM and cramps from implantation?!

Sorry hope this isnt too much tmi but im so confused. I had my last period june 13th and ive been averaging 30 days in between since the d&c so 2 wks before my nxt period was around the weekend of june 28 th. However not until july 5th did i get any noticeable discharge and i had brief but uncomfortable cramping yesterday and have had clear discharge the past 3 days....do u think i ovulated a week late? We stopped really trying cuz i thought (based on dates) that i caught the right time butnow im questioning myself.....what do u think ?

I hope everything is alright @apeydef !!

That's so sweet about your son and hearing the heartbeat @maof1 Hopefully your thyroid is fine and you get to find out baby gender soon!!!! So exciting!
@alivewithyou hope tummy pain stays away that's so great you got to hear a good heartbeat yay! I love that reassurance every time.
@BadWolf -I'm so excited you're having a girl!!! Sorry about your foot hope it heals fast.

We just got back from a long weekend vacation on Mackinaw Island in Michigan- so fun and relaxing. Although the ferry ride over was a little rough . It was great to spend time with family and friends.
Our dog just got over the Parvo Virus (even though she received her puppy shots on time, she still contracted it from another dog. grrr.... angry pet mom) and we haven't really been able to bring her anywhere or take her on walks. I can't wait till next weekend when she is not contagious anymore and can be around other animals!
I've been doing this internship at an urban farm in Grand Rapids MI.. kinda cool actually. I do a lot of office work and then run the farm stand on Thursdays. It's nice to do something out of the house. Some days don't go so well pregnancy wise though : ).

I hope everyone had a great fourth!!

Married August 2012 .......    Baby BOY due Jan 6!
Love my two monstersMalamute & Newfoundland

I haven't felt definite movement since one instance many weeks ago. Heartbeat was fine at 15 weeks. Hopefully we'll both feel something soon. Otherwise I won't have reassurance until my 20 week ultrasound.

At my 10 week ultrasound I was measuring a day late but they said they don't change the due date unless it's a week.

I had what was suppose to be the last round of second trimester genetic testing today. WRONG! Baby Madison was taking a nap and they couldn't get her to change positions, so no measurement of heart growth or anything below the legs. Worst hour and a half of this pregnancy. They brought in a specialist without telling me and scared the hell out of me. And he just kept mumbling notes to himself, which was annoying me. And then he would start saying, "Nothing to worry about, but I'm making you come back in 10 days. And find an orthopedic who will MRI your foot." My mood swings are through the roof today, and I just wanted a nice, positive doctors visit since it had to be at the hospital. (I hate our hospital with a passion.) Ao now I'm more miserable, exhausted and want today to end. This week has had more negatives than positives, and I'm over it.

Sorry for lack of personals. I'll try later if I end up at the PC and not my phone.

Thanks everyone! Dr appt went fine. All they did was check the heartbeat and she found it right away. She gave me the paper to set up an ultrasound. I owe the hospital money so I'm worried they won't do the ultrasound. I need to quit worrying!!

I've developed this issue where I keep forgetting to take my prenatal vitamins. Is this the worse thing in the world? Or should I force myself back into habit, even if it means writing it on my hand every day until I take them?

The only thing I worry about is the folic acid bc lack of fix acid has been known to cause spina bifida. Although the risk is low and your pretty far along so the spine has probably already formed. I would try to remember though bc you want you and baby to get all those vitamins bc minerals and they help keep you from getting sick!

The right mix of vitamins and nutrients is most important in the first trimester, since a deficiency here and there can cause developmental issues (the most widely known being the folic acid/neural tube defects link, like apeydef mentioned). But then after that, even once baby has all of her proper parts and they just have to grow, baby still needs nutrients because if they don't get what they need from your diet, they'll take what they need from your body, like stealing calcium from your bones, etc.

But missing a few days here and there at this point wouldn't be a huge tragedy. I even think I remember one care provider telling me that even just remembering to take them once a week isn't detrimental (but I still strive for daily). What's helped me to remember is a daily pill organizer that is in a closet right now, but when I needed to develop the habit, I had it out and about where I'd see it several times a day as a reminder. Setting an alarm on your phone could help, too.

@apeydef : Happy your ultrasound went well! tummy pain is a lot better since I cut out dairy, but the constipation is starting to build up again so I won't be shocked if I am in pain from the build up eventually lol.

7 weeks today.. I can't really fully believe it. I know that I am just getting started but so far I feel so good about this pregnancy. Everything has been textbook and every good sign I could have has been here. I am freaking EXHAUSTED.. just feel dizzy and in a daze all the time.. and the nausea and lack of appetite is ridiculous. No throwing up yet *fingers crossed*. I can't wait for our appointment with a regular OB/GYN next week. Hoping I like my new doctor and that it's a good experience.
