all, i've updated the thread up until this point so everyone's status should be current. please let me know if i've left anyone out and i will update them also as needed!

i'll be stepping down from post keeper today! the last two and a half months have been fun, but i think it's time to pass the torch on to someone else. so, to whomever feels led, please start a new posting topic for december! of course, wishing everyone well.

gosh, this sounds like i'm leaving, but i'll still be sticking around...

Megin and Katie, any news? I have been watching this thread all day.

Tiger, how exciting that you are sooo close! What did the OB say?

AAU: Things are coming along. We are now just past the half way point. Quasar is really starting to show and we are feeling kicks rather consistently now. We are leaning towards one name (well at least I am and Quasar isn't fighting me) but nothing is set in stone. My family Thanksgiving went better than last year (last year ended with a giant F.U. exchange) though it is still tense and I guess my dad has since had not nice things to say. Mom won't buy any baby like xmas gifts in an attempt to not rock the boat. I'm thinking Quasar being 6mos pregnant will be just as obvious if not more so than a bassinet. Maybe we will skip xmas at their place altogether. Work and the economy in MI weigh heavily on my mind as our baby grows.
I need to clean my house for our work party that I accidently offered to host. Oh well, it needs a good cleaning anyways.

Can you tell I'm kinda blah today?

well, my cervix is still to high and posterior to be easily checked -- as it was, I was nearly in tears -- so it can be assumed that it is still pretty much closed. I am still having contractions whenever I stand up, which, while not exactly painful, is highly uncomfortable and distracting.

the awesome lunar conjunction outside was a treat to see on our way home -- we stopped and had frites at a favorite restaurant, the one we ate dinner at the night I peed on a stick and found out we were pregnant. le sigh.

I am so ready for this baby to get out of here. but if my cervix check was that painful, I don't know if I can handle labor...

Go without the internet for 6 days and you sure miss a whole heck of a lot!

First of all, what an amazing birth story JenInMpls. I am so glad that E's surgical birth is one that you feel more at peace with, and that everyone treated you with respect. You gave it your all, and I'll definitely be thinking of you and your strenght when my time to VBAC comes. I hope that E is "eating and excreting" to everyone's satisfaction and that all of you and yours are doing well. Can I just say that the "10 fingers, 10 toes, and 1 extra chromosome" line tugged at my heartstrings? What a great way to describe what I am sure is a perfect little boy. I can't wait to see pictures.

miep - despite your Braxton-Hicks, I hope your little one stays put until the 13th for you!

And Megin, Katie and Quinn, I am very sorry that yesterday's ultrasound didn't bring good news. Hugs to all three of you.

Not much is new with me. Just got back from a 6-day trip to Oklahoma to visit DP's family. We had a great time, but spent pretty much the entire day yesterday in the airport or on a plane. With the weather in Chicago our place out of OKC was delayed by two hours, we made our conection at O'Hare by 4 minutes, and got home nearly 3 hours later than we were scheduled to. I'm feeling pretty tired from it all, but we had a great trip that involved lots of stops at Sonic! I have an appointment with our midwives tomorrow afternoon, and our 20 week ultrasound is scheduled for the 15th. We're not going to be finding out the sex though, so basically it's just a bit of a fact-finding mission to make sure that the babe is growing and that the placenta is in a good position.

oh, and I forgot to say, if there is anyone out there who does want to know what E's name is, I'm willing to share it privately, just not out there on the boards... being married to a techie who gets squirmy about our names being out there on the internet and all. But if you want to know, PM me and I'll happily PM you back.

I'm very, very sad to say that I went for a routine appointment today and they could not find the baby's heartbeat. I was sent for an emergency ultrasound that confirmed that my baby has passed away in utero.

I will be going in to the Early Pregnancy Loss unit at the local hospital tomorrow to discuss our options. Never in a million years did I think we'd be dealing with this at 18 weeks.

lemurmommies - I am so sorry. There are no words. That is just horrific. I'm so sorry. I felt especially invested in your pregnancy since we were in the same due date club before I miscarried. It's so f-ing unfair. I can't tell you how sorry I am.
