    Welcome Caniac- and congrats. Stop visiting Dr Google until you meet with your Dr.



    Week 6 hit on Sunday with a vengeance, but I am so grateful. I am pretty sure I’ve been having symptoms since conception…a myriad of symptoms. First, it was hard-to-manage blood sugar levels, light-headedness, mild headaches, and exhaustion. During weeks 3 and 4, it was sore breasts, dizzy spells, extreme hunger, cramping, and more mild headaches and exhaustion. Weeks 5 and 6 have seen increasing nausea, cramps, and exhaustion. After losing a baby to a miscarriage at week 9 in 2007, I am happy for every symptom (except the cramping…that scares me). I had no symptoms during that pregnancy. 8 years later and at the age of 37, I wasn’t sure that I would ever have a baby. I am soooo excited and soooo happy, so Nausea, bring it on!!!



    I understand completely ibaheir2dathrone, I lost my baby Jonathan at almost 19 weeks 3 months ago. and I am like a woman obsessed. I must have more children. as many as I can! part of me wants to fill that hole that is left because he is not there anymore. and another part wants so badly to feel that love again. that feeling of absolute wonder and amazement the second you find out you are pregnant and that moment when you meet your baby for the first time. we are trying again now and I am simply desperately hoping that this time when I hold my baby he or she will be alive and healthy.



    HAYZ- I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Congrats on your pregnancy, we will be holding your hand the whole way! ANNIE- So glad to hear that your appt went well, when is your due date? BECKY- lucky- I’m still getting bit! Dang mosquitoes! MEGS- YAY! He will be here before you know it! EM- Counting down the days until the 14th! I don’t know if you saw one of my previous posts, but for some reason I also thought you were having a boy 😉 JENN- Thursday morning?!?! Oh my goodness, I didn’t realize it was so soon! 3BOYS- Can your dr. try to turn him? Also, have you tried getting on your hands and knees while rocking your back up and down to encourage baby to change position? I know there are a few other things you can do – maybe google it?



    Hi ladies.. So i went in to the specialist to have my level 2 u/s. They looked at the brain and there are 2 cysts but are small. There is also still a calcium deposit in the heart.. With these things she still didnt seem concerned. She said that the calcium she wouldnt even really look at. She said that it should get smaller once the baby grows. With the cysts she said they were small. We go back in 4 weeks for another u/s to check to see if they are bigger, smaller, or gone. WE are hoping gone but if they are still there its ok as long as they havnt gotten bigger. All the other measurements showed normal. So she is thinking that these are only small findings and doesnt think its related to down syndrome. Thats a relief but there is still a chance because of course they cant be sure without the amnio. Our baby is still girl which is great.. It was so cute she was playing with her fingers in the ultraound and we saw her opening and closing her mouth when they did the 3d view. It was great…



    I have my FIRST u/s on Tuesday! I can’t wait to see him dancing around! All of us are nervous, but getting nervous this far away from our appointments is crazy. We should save that for the night before! Let’s try to enjoy the sickness, tiredness, headaches, bloting, constipation and crying spells! We have lots of prayers and support here!



    red> those are good news sweets!!

    lannie> Ejoy the first trimester (not easy though)



    I so can’t remember how DS kicked, I never paid attention to it! It seems ridiculous how much I pay attention to everything in this pregnancy. I just don’t like how this one sometimes kick right down on my cervix (that’s how it feels like anyway) – it almost feels like he is going to kick his way out!!



    That’s not shallow at all! I was hoping for some good pictures, and I was a little annoyed with my little girl cos she refused to let them take a good picture of her haha. Cheeky little girl she is. I’ve only uploaded my u/s pics to facebook so far though, can’t be bothered adding 12 photos to my photobook on here. I love when she kicks, it’s the best feeling.



    Going to a walk in clinic wont do much unless they have an u/s machine. Everyone is different.. Some people neve get moring sickness.. Some only get it a little here and there.. All you can do now is try not to worry about it.. Trust me I know that is easier said than done. But, even if you go to the OB right now.. They couldn’t do anything if something was wrong. But, I know through my entire pregnancy. I had days when I felt more pregnant and days when I didn’t feel much at all. Good luck!



    So yeah, speaking of ‘what would have been’ – this has been one crazy year in our house. If Glory had lived, we would have had a newborn in our arms for Christmas; if Promise had lived, I would have been in my third trimester; if Peace had lived, I would have been in my second trimester…. But here I sit, *still* (okay, *again*) in a first trimester with Baby Six! How crazy is that?!


    Ok, looked into it more since I wasn’t sure… The progesterone supplements make the lining of the uterus thicker and more nutrient rich for the embryo to implant. Once baby is snuggled in tight around 8 weeks the placenta will be developed enough to be producing it’s own progesterone, thus making the supplements unnecessary. The women who may be taking progesterone from say 16 weeks on need it to prevent preterm labor since their placentas aren’t producing enough of the hormone naturally. So you should be right on track to stop taking the supplements Dan.



    thuy & roosa – Thank you for the welcomes and suggestion. I am hoping once I sit down with the OB next Friday I can make a sound decision. But you’re right, if I cant get what I feel I need then I should look else where. Thank you

    Congratulations ladies for making it through this. I am so happy for you and it gives me much hope.



    megs, sorry to hear you are still having problems with your tooth, that is no good. I hope they will be able to do something for you. A friend of mine who is 32 weeks pregnant has an infected wisdom tooth and they won’t do anything for her until baby is born. That can’t be fun. xox



    Jenn, nope… cycle before my BFP was a 15 day LP! I did have a ruptured cyst though that we found out about at the ER with my first bit of spotting and the dr did say at my last u/s that I still have some free fluid so I guess I should expect this…. but its the twinges I dont like…. they seem to be getting a little more constant… grrr….. can we just fast forward like 6 months!
