This is a 2 part vaccination (my research online shows that they are given 6 weeks apart) and than you need to wait 4 weeks after the 2nd shot to start our next round of fertility treatments. We did manage to track down a nurse that can give me the first shot on Tuesday morning so that we can get this show on the road.

I cannot believe it. We were so close to our 3rd IUI attempt (less than a week) and now we are talking a minimum of 10 weeks so pretty much the New Year before we can try again.

I went through a wide range of emotions yesterday. I was so positive this was our month and now we cannot even try.
They won't let you get IUI without the vaccination? You have never had chicken pox?

maof1 Ok. I have to do a ME post for now... I am driving 4 hours south tomorrow to attend my cousin's wedding... I am so flipping nervous about driving there tomorrow. It's not like I haven't driven down there a gazillion times before but this time I will be 1 day shy of 31 weeks pregnant. Please tell me I am not crazy and this is completely normal! I'm so worried that something is going to happen. It's just me and my 9 yr old DS going as my SO has a football game to attend for his 4 kids. Ahh! I'm freaking out here!
10-17-2014 05:21 PM
apeydef Hi alivewithyou! Good to hear from you. You too Kita.

Yes only 9 more weeks for me. I'm panicking on how I'm going to manage 3 kids lol but getting excited to have a newborn around here again
10-17-2014 04:39 PM
alivewithyou Hey everyone. just wanted to let you know I have been following along.. just finding it difficult to keep up with all the threads.

Congrats @edubluv !

Keeping on eye on you @badwolf092087 : hopefully your little girl can stay cooking as long as possible and doesn't put you at too much risk. Do you have an idea of timeline? Oh and sorry if this is an ignorant question.. but you talked about possibly inducing. Wouldn't it still be risky to induce and have a vaginal birth with the position of your placenta?
@maof1 : I also have an anterior placenta and my doctor didn't seem concerned at all. Mine is along the top though so maybe that's why.
@tinytina : good to see you and i hope that everything goes well and you get your sticky baby soon.
@Kita4 : Hi! Sounds like everything is going well for you despite some of the typical pregnancy annoyances. We have picked out the name Charlie Rae for our little girl and our super excited. Mostly just enjoying my own pregnancy woes: back pain, aches, heartburn, stomach issues, etc but we are loving being able to feel her kicks all the time now.
@Harmony96 : can't believe how far you are already!
@apeydef : Hi! 31 weeks already? wow. I really need to check into this thread more often.. i feel so behind on everyone.

hi @nsmomtobe : sounds like you are also getting close.

AFM: I am doing pretty good. Finally starting to get a rounder belly, feeling little kicks and jabs constantly, and just trying not to get overwhelmed with what feels like a massive to do list before baby gets here. Started on her nursery already, starting to look into hypnobirthing and other birthing classes, and working on our registry. That's about it other than trying to take care of myself.

Kita4 Hello everyone! I suppose it's time to check in on you all and give an update .

Been busy working and getting nursery ready. I swear we've changed baby boy's name like a million times. Good thing none of our family and friends know our ideas yet! We are waiting to officially name him until we see his sweet little face. So far the top runners are: Dallas Mitchell, Scottland Mitchell, Maverick Blaze, Hunter, or Carson.... it seems like my husband comes up with a new one every day though, haha.

Baby and I are doing well. We are at 28 weeks. Passed my glucose test- wasn't as nasty as I thought it was going to be. Did end up on the floor when they drew my blood and gave me my TDAP and Flu shots though.... oops. Too much in one appointment I guess. The nurse thanked me for making her day exciting though- ha! Baby boy is moving a ton and kicking a lot! We can't wait to meet him.

The nursery is woodland animals/foxed themed. I am making his bedding- it's grey with white birch trees and orange foxes. Super cute.

I've been busy nannying a toddler with Down Syndrome M-F... 8-5... so my days are packed!

I'm trying to get the dogs used to "baby things" being around. We'll see how they do when he arrives. Luckily they are snow dogs and can be booted out in the snow if they freak out when he comes this New Years.

Congrats on the little girl @alivewithyou that's so exciting! Any names yet?
Sorry you are having pains @badwolf092087 ...soon your little princess will be here!
Congrats on your little peanut @edubluv !!! Love the name. Post a pic!
Soon your babe will be here @Harmony96 !
Glad you are off bedrest @maof1

Can't believe everyone is so far along already. This is getting so exciting!!!

*ETA: I have also been having crazy Braxton Hicks, leg cramps and some minor Round Ligament pains. My nausea comes back some days. I have also had a few lovely vaginal infections. Gotta love those b*tches. NOT. Besides those.... no back pain (yet).
10-14-2014 12:47 PM
Harmony96 I'm already on weekly visits! How did that happen? My MW checked her apprentice's phone today to get my gestation and it incorrectly had me at almost 36 weeks, so she was going to have me do the GBS swab today.

DH passed his CDL driving test, yay. Just in time, too, b/c yesterday his work said they're restricting him to 40 hours until he gets his CDL (which he's been trying to do for a month and a half.)

maof1 Badwolf, sorry you are having such crap from your neighbor and MIL. The neighbor was just flat out rude and as for your MIL, it's her son and your life not hers and if she can't respect that then it is her loss.

AFM, I am OFF BED REST!!! Yay! was told to still take it easy though. We upped my BP med dosage, upped my water intake, and I can't bake anymore for orders but can for leisure... I just have to be careful. Glad to know that I can get out of bed finally! My midwife is having me do another 24hr urine collection just to verify there is no protein in my urine to rule out pre eclampsia. I have a feeling I will end up with it in the long run but for now baby and I are good. Sage is TONS more active since I really upped my water intake too. That makes me happy because I hadn't been able to feel him much before. Oh and I have my final ultrasound on the 27th in the morning.

Tina how are you doing??
10-14-2014 05:36 AM
badwolf092087 Hubby had a talk with his mom last night after work, and it looks like she won't be involved in Madison's life. She doesn't think he should be having kids because of his career and life choices. That in turn made him decide that she isn't allowed near Maddy until she comes to her senses. Knowing this woman as long as I have, that won't happen any time soon.

tinytina Sorry to hear about your stress @maof1 , @badwolf092087 , and @nsmomtobe

Congrats @edubluv
10-13-2014 05:57 AM
badwolf092087 Thanks for the support, ladies. We discovered that I had placenta issues that went unnoticed 5 years ago thanks to a crappy doctor. But we cannot legally bring this up. It wasn't really a discovery. Just a realization while going through Connor's baby box. I never read any of the papers the hospital have us, hubby started and noticed the blood transfusion and remembered me bleeding out. And they noted "ruptured placenta" which we found odd because it was never communicated to us. This is why I don't trust the hospital we are being forced to deliver at. We got a private practice OB to avoid being there, but insurance is dictating where we have to deliver which makes me very emotional. Probably the hormones.

My daughter is still pushing down extremely hard. I felt like I needed to pee all night but nothing. I'm kind of hoping for an early bloody show to avoid being induced at this point. If not, I'm hoping the insurance doesn't find a reason to deny this.

Our neighbor saw me getting the paper yesterday and asked how many months I am. I told her over 8 and she said I'm not eating enough because I'm not big enough. When I explained that was from far the case, she delivered me a lecture that I didn't want on a Sunday morning. She ended it with the assumption that I'll probably end up with a cesarean, and I blew her off. Nosey old bitty.

I have a follow up appointment tomorrow morning regarding my bed rest. I am pretty sure I will be stuck on bed rest due to the pre eclampsia symptoms I am having... Persistent/severe headache, swollen fingers and toes/feet/ankles... Gained 6lbs in 3 weeks which going by my weight gain the rest of my pregnancy was quite a lot in a little time... I just hope I can let little Sage bake longer than another 2 weeks! He's not due until December 21 but scheduled for December 16.

Congratulations Edub!!! Happy she was a healthy little one!
I wouldn't worry! There's a chance I could have a csection. My last birth was a csection but I'm trying fir a VBAC this time, and I wasn't told that the anterior placenta could interfere.

I don't blame you on doing whatever is needed to keep your baby safe. I am on bed rest because my BP meds are no longer working for my body.
I so have an anterior placenta and the DR and ultrasound tech told me it poses no threat. Did your dr tell you something different?

Harmony96 Congratulations edub! I love her birth date and time combination - 10, 11, 9, 11.

badwolf, hoping baby can stay baking and your placenta doesn't cause any interference.

maof1, sorry you're on bedrest.

AFM - still trucking along here. Baby is breech more often than not so I've been going to the chiropractor to try to get him turned. Next appointment is Tuesday so we'll see how he's lying then. I might be going to three-times-a-week visits instead of just two if he's still head down.

My placenta is low "again," though I think the specialist misdiagnosed it as shifting back to normal a few weeks back. If I had delivered and my doctors didn't catch that, I could've bled out. Maddy's head is resting directly on it as of now, so it puts me in a scary position. Everyday hubby says he believes me in and I'll be okay, but my faith is misplaced at the moment.

Boy do I know your pain right now... I had my checkup this morning and now I'm just freaking out even more. I've been dealing with SPD pains since I was 13 weeks... As the time has gone by they just recently started to slowly fade a tad. My appointment this morning was horrible! I wanted to just cry my eyes out. My lil guy is okay for now but even with my BP meds I am on my BP was still 135/88 this morning and I woke with a severe headache. I got told I am to do nothing but lay in bed all weekend and see if that doesn't help my BP issue along with my meds. The problem is I have to finish my nephew's birthday cake and my son's cupcakes for their bday party on Saturday. Asked my midwife if it was possible I go ahead and have a partial hysterectomy once my son is taken via section due to family history (mom had a 10cm cyst that was on one of her ovaries and has had abnormal Pap smear results) and got told no. That my insurance won't approve it because I'm not having any problems myself. So I can only have a tubal ligation done. :disappointed_relieved: So now I sit in the truck waiting on school to let out to pick up my DS who just turned 9 on Monday and take him home and at least get the 2nd layer of the cake done and crumb coated then make dinner... All with the headache I still have after taking Tylenol and sleeping for the last 3 1/2 hours..

Hope all of you other ladies are doing well.
