I'll be the first...hey new smiles :horse1 :horse2
hmmmm....

Anyway - hope everyone's having a good weekend. Hope this week brings happy goodbye's to the nausea some of us are still suffering! (Shannon - )

I've been sorting out some of my cd research - it's slowly starting to make sense, and I hope to contact some local wahm companies soon. I'm reeeeally looking forward to leaving on vacation on Friday - hope I get everything wrapped up at work (yikes!)!

Out to shop for a pregancy journal, and maybe a new fleece for my trip...! (alas, no, my holiday will not be tropical, and I was warned the weather has turned fall-ish in Halifax...)

Nice to see that we're all moving into our second trimester! I hope that means the barf-fest is over for everyone! Shannon, how are you? Recovering from the bug? Ekblad, any m/s still? Is it getting easier? Heve, thanks for staring the new thread. After the week of hell is over, and hopefully the news is good, I will ask you about Cloth diapers, and who to buy from.

I appreciate all the kind thoughts and amazing support I've gotten from everyone lately. I honestly don't know what I would have done without you this weekend, with dh gone.

Tuesday is right around the corner, and I'm getting nervous. I'll let you all know how the procedure goes, and what they say during the level 2 u/s.

I also just discovered that my dd sleeps so soundly during her nap that I can clean her ears and wash her face without waking her up! This is so amazing, considering she screams like a banshee if water goes anywhere higher than her neck. Now if i could only figure out how to wash her hair while she sleeps....

Morning, mamas! I haven't been around much lately. Well, I've been lurking. I just don't have a whole lot going on as far as the pregnancy goes. I have felt some movement! That was my favorite thing about my 1st pregnancy, so I was thrilled, still am.
I never thought about keeping a pregnancy journal. That is such a great idea! I've never been a very good journaler, but I would like to keep a record of what's happening to my body and how our lives change between now and February.

Best of luck tomorrow, Lesley! I was so surprised to read that your insurance denied your amnio claim. I didn't realize they could do that for prenatal tests. That's messed up.

Have a great day everybody!

I didn't have much luck - there were about 4 different ones there, but none of them suited my needs. They had something like one line in which to write things. I want the tidbits, like where things are at the various stages, but with enough room to truly journal, not just put in weight, etc...The Sears Pregnancy book has room for pasting a photo, and some info, but only once for every month, and the book is far too dense and thick to use as a journal...besides, I may use it again, or lend it to a friend some day...also, some of them were a bit too "medical" for my liking...the quest continues...I'll have to create my own!

Heveasoul, have you checked out Chapters yet?? I was in the one in Oakville and they had a bunch that were more like diaries, sounded like what you are looking for. They should have them at the one in Guelph.
Seem to be feeling better today. Haven't bothered with my morning gravol yet and I even had a bowl of cereal. Have to finish cleaning this house today, it has just gotten so far behind that the catch up work is very daunting. First though I have to kick this fat cat outside, he's been sitting on his table eating for over an hour, now his bowl is empty so he keeps digging his claws into my shoulder to get me to fill it again-that ain't gonna happen!

Hi everyone! We've been up to our eyeballs in moving. We should be finished getting everything over to the new house today, then the fun starts with cleaning the old house Like I said before, my internet service will be out for about a week (hopefully it will be connected by Friday) so I won't be on. Hope everyone has a great one! Take care!

So much is happening We are thinking of moving to the Northwest and Thinking it might happen soon . I'm feeling great. I don't feel preg right now. I know that I am but I have lots of energy. I've got to run and finish cleaning the house.

Hi all, glad to see that everyone is feeling good.
I just came back from the ultrasound appt to check the cyst on my ovary, but it's gone!!!Yay, so glad. I didn't want to have to go every 2 weeks for an ultrasound.
But saying that, myself and dd got to see the baby, who is nearly 8cm and is measuring just fine. The hb was 155, and he/she was kicking their little legs around like crazy. It just seems so bizarre that someting is moving around like that inside you, and I can't feel it yet. Hopefully soon though! Can't wait for that feeling again.
Lesley good luck for tomorrow, will be thinking of you.

Hi Everyone!! Congrats to Adina! I don't know her but it sounds like a wonderful event!!

I am feeling good. I am still tired but other than that I feel good. I need to schedule another appt. with my midwife this week.

I was wondering if anyone knows of any good yoga or pilates (pregnancy) videos. I am needing something. I need to be excercising more.

Anyway, gotta run. The house is a MESS! I have got to get caught up!! It is driving me crazy!!

Life is to be enjoyed...not just endured!

Good luck with your move, Mama2Chloe! I don't envy you. I hate moving. Good thing you're feeling good, though.

Yay for Adina!


ella-makes-3~ Question. This is probably something I should know. When you say the baby measures 8cm...what does cm stand for? I think "centimeters", but our babies are much bigger than that by now. I've been going by inches. So glad your cyst is gone!

Lots of good news today! And on a Monday. Strange. Wonderful, but strange!

I just met my new midwife and I absolutely love her! The lady I planned on using will be out of the state in Feb., so she introduced me to someone she thinks highly enough to recommend. I am so so pleased with her. She is exactly what I was looking for. I'm so excited about that.

Now I'm off to start a thread in the pregnancy section. My hooha hurts.

Tracie, I assume she means centimeters and that she's also talking crown to rump length which 8 cm is pretty much accurate within a few cm depending on how many weeks one is.
I'm so jazzed about Adina, I was in tears most of the afternoon!!

Hi, guys, I'm actually getting a post in before the thread gets to be several pages long! I thought I was feeling better after prenatal yoga on Saturday, but then the nausea came back. Ugh. Poor Shannon, it's nowhere near what she's going through.

I felt the baby move for the first time on Friday! I'm 15 weeks, so it's a little early, but I know some moms who say they can feel the baby even earlier. There was one gigantic kick or something then a few smaller movements and that was it. I haven't felt anything since then, but it did reassure me a little. My midwife is coming out tomorrow; hopefully we'll be able to hear the heartbeat this time.

I hope everyone starts to feel better soon!

Thanks Shannon, that's totally what the ultrasonographer said at the time, but I just didn't remember it correctly! Duh! I was just trying so hard to remember 8cm!!!!But yes it was the crown to rump measurement. I am still thinking about it, it made such a huge impact on my day!

Hi,
Just checking in. MS is pretty much gone, but I seem to be getting more tired. I am definitely in maternity clothes now, it seems as though pregnancy #1 just stretched out everything so that my guts stick out. Lovely. It seems as though everything is stretching, rather uncomfortably. Next midwife appt next week, and I will have a lot to discuss with her.

BTW does anyone have any opinions about omega 3 fats and mercury contamination in fish? What are you doing to reconcile these things? Any insight is welcome.

Waiting for baby kicks. . . . and :yawning: :yawning: :yawning:

hi everybody - we're back from our "vacation" at the beach. didn't turn out quite like we expected. on friday night, i had some (it seemed like a lot at the time) bleeding and went to the er of a local hospital. they found a heartbeat and saw that the cervix was closed and so said, "well, there's nothing we can do. either the bleeding will stop or you'll go on to miscarry." don't move for the next two days.

so, for fear of moving, we stayed at the beach and i stayed in bed for the next two days. the bleeding stopped. we went back to the er on sunday and begged 'em to let us listen for the heartbeat again. they did and they found it right away.

yesterday, we drove straight from the beach to my ob's office. she did an u/s and says that i have a subchorionic hemmorhage. that caused the bleeding plus there may be some blood internally. i also have an almost placenta previa. i am going back today for a more detailed u/s. the baby is still doing fine and we are very cautiously optimistic. i am on bedrest for at least the next week and maybe the rest of the pregnancy.

so, be careful what you wish for! i kept wishing that i didn't have to work. well, now i probably can't....

we just keep telling ourselves, "she's ok for now, she's ok for now."

glad to hear most of you are doing a little better with the nausea! soon, we should all be feeling the little ones moving!

Kristin - haven't solidified my knowledge of which fish is fine and which is not, beyond the following (too lazy to look up an official list right now):
NOs:
white (albacore) tuna
shark
swordfish

YES:
wild-caught salmon
sardines
roe
shrimp (I think)

Also, to ensure you're getting the fish goodness without consuming it daily, you can find high-quality cod liver oil that is safe (Carlson Lab's, Premier Cod Liver Oil, available from Radiant Life, Blue Ice). Carlson's also maked fish oil. They flavour theirs with lemon oil, if the fish taste is offensive. (I don't mind it - I prefer the unflavoured one, but then, my background is Portuguese!)

Tug I'm happy to hear your baby is okay, but what an awful, scary thing to have to go through. I do hope you don't have to be on bedrest the rest of your pregnancy!

Lesley -- thinking of you this morning. Please keep us posted on your amnio. I hope you don't have to wait too long for the results.

Kristin, I take an oil supplement 3 times a day -- it has all the "good stuff" without the danger.

Twinmom -- how exciting to feel the baby move!! I felt "something" last night, but honestly don't know what it was. I figure I"ll know when the baby moves?? What does it feel like?

Hope everyone else is doing well this a.m.

Good morning everyone!

We got back from 1.5 wks vacation in the Adirondacks. It is soooo peaceful and relaxing up there. We're all trying hard to get back in the swing of things.

I had a blood screening (can't remember the name). All good news. Risk of down's 1:5185 (1:500 normal for my age) and risk of Trisomy 18 is 1:1309 (1:1100 normal for my age). So baby looks great from that angle.

But some currently scary news -- my OB now does a genetic questionnaire for all moms to identify risk for various genetic disorders. I hit as high risk for Cystic Fibrosis carrier as I am of exclusively northern european decent on both sides of my family for as far back as I know about. So... he recommended I get a blood test to see if I am a carrier of Cystic Fibrosis. Guess what... I am. The odds for just being caucasian are 1:20 but apparently it can be as high as 1:5 if of *primarily* northern european decent, not just caucasian. So this morning my dh (who's English-Irish for generations :0) is going in to see if HE is a carrier too. If so, each of our children has a 25% chance of not being a carrier, a 50% chance of being a carrier, and a 25% chance of having full blown CF disease. Oh please oh please no no no. We should no in a few days. I'm actually more freaking out for my current kids than I am for baby #3. Anyway, right now I'm just trying not to get worked up but it's hard.

Tug, that's so scary, the bleed I had was a sub-chorionic bleed and it resolved after a couple weeks, but I didn't have anything wrong with the placenta. Do you have a laptop?? That makes bedrest much easier.
Lesley, I'm thinking about you, be sure to let us know what's going on when you get home.
Periwinkle, remember, everything is still the same as it was before you knew you were a carrier. Also remember, for your current children, obviously both of YOUR parents were at the 1:5 risk level, so the risk of you yourself having CF was higher than the risk of your children having CF. Your husbands Celtic blood should water those risks down as the chance of him being a carrier is pretty slim (I assume by what you've written)
Super tired today, but not feeling pukey, so I'll take the tired. I do however think I'd like to get a porta potty for beside my bed!!! What I wouldn't do to have an on-suite bathroom back!!! Inevitably there are canines stratigically placed in the hallway between the bed and the bathroom, and they only get up when you've decided they won't get up and go to step over them--add to that Bedlam's mandatory escort to the bathroom where she growls and any dog's blocking the way and these every other hour trips are getting really bothersome!!
