haha Big FF fan here, too! Just finished the latest Wii FF installment. I am loving all the re-releasing coming out for DS as well. I kept wondering if your screen name (nintendork) had anything to do with gaming haha-- we should start a gaming preggo mommies thread.

Had my first ultrasound this afternoon, what an amazing and relieving experience seeing the heart beat!! I had to have a vaginal ultrasound (OUCH) because my uterus is retroverted but other than that all is well

Congrats to all the pretty ultrasound babies!! We just had our first one today and everything was A-OK! YAY!!! I can't believe how relieved I feel. I wasn't sure if I was far enough along to see anything but it looks like I'm 7 weeks or so.

Heartbeat was 132 bpm and it looks like the due date is Feb 7th. Woo hoo!!! I think I'm having a baby!!!

It's at 10am. I hope I don't pass out from the anxiety... LOL.
My midwife is going to think I'm a loon. I'm just nervous because the last time I had any U/S it was obviously really bad news and I totally hyperventiliated..ugggg.

For all the healthy babies!

I'll be thinking about you tomorrow Michelle. I am confident you are going to get great news.

My u/s isn't until next Thursday. It seems like forever away. I would like to bring my 10 y/o dd. Any thoughts? I have been super sick so I am not expecting any bad news. That would be the only thing that would worry me about her being there. I just thought it would be a nice thing for us to do together.

You ladies are making me want an early ultrasound! We're home birthing so we are only doing the 20 week one. We'll should be able to hear the heartbeat at our first prenatal - I'll be 10-11 weeks then (July 5th) Seems sooo far away!


Happy to hear about all the healthy little baby flutters!

Just got back.

This was my first U/S and I'm 7w1d today.

The baby measured 7w3d and had a heartrate of 154.

I was SO relieved, I had bloodwork taken today and I have another appt in 3 weeks.

Based on the u/s it would be 2/6 but since I'm pyscho about charting I know it's 2/8....my midwife says she goes more by Ovulation than u/s if the mother is charting. So we're keeping feb 8th (which will probably be feb 18th with my luck).

I had an abdominal ultrasound at 6w5d and was able to see the heartbeat, so it doesn't always have to be vaginal (thank goodness!). I am due in late January, but spotted this thread and peeked in because I have already had two ultrasounds during this pregnancy (one at 10w yesterday), after being pretty anti-ultrasound for quite a few years!

Molly--mama to two sons (9/03 and 5/06), one tiny son forever in my heart (14w5d, 11/09), and one early m/c 2/10. Gave birth to my rainbow baby girl in 2011 and surprised to welcome another rainbow in October, 2014!

I had my second ultrasound yesterday. Saw the heartbeat and everything. And it turns out that I'm further along than I thought. She put me at 8w1d yesterday, moving my due date up by 4 days.
We also found out why I've been having cramps. My left ovary is HUGE! It's almost bigger than the amniotic sac! Guess we know which ovary was responsible for this pregnancy. Other than that it was a very good appointment.
