He said "up to 5 lbs in the first 20 weeks and then 1 lb/week after that" so he was using 20 weeks rather than the first trimester as his cut-off and he said I gained 5 lbs more than I should have. I...

I think technically the earliest viability can be considered is 24 weeks, but survival rate isn't great that early and chances of disability are high. 26-27 weeks gives the baby a good chance of...

I'm so sorry, jenjy. It sucks when things seem like they are finally going well (after a good u/s), only to find out that they are not. I'm sorry to hear that you have dealt with a later loss before...

I had my anatomy scan today. I'm probably going to have to go back because the baby was not in a good position for a lot of the shots, but what they did see looked good. Measuring 20 weeks 1 day. The...

I thought I felt movement between weeks 10-13, but then nothing until 18 weeks. It was very clear for a few days, but has trailed off as I approach 19 weeks. I can't wait until it is more consistent.

I kind of think it would provide some sort of closure if this baby is born on Dec 20th (i.e., turning a sad day into a happy one). I'm sorry you found out you lost the baby on your birthday.

I was always told to get the 6-7 day stuff because it was gentler. I assumed it was less concentrated and that's why it needed to be used longer.

Thanks for saying that. I think I will ask him to do a swab to check for infection, along with looking to make sure that my cervix is still closed and checking the heartbeat (for reassurance).
