Congrats Tigereyez!!! How exciting-twins.
It amazes me everyone who has had an ultrasound this early. My dr. told me that I would only have one around 20 weeks. Makes me wonder how they are going to make sure everything is ok. I guess there are other ways. I understand if you are high risk, but I guess I'm a little jealous that I won't get to hear the heartbeat until I'm half way through.
@tigereyes Oh wow that is awesome. I am sure you are very excited. I found out I was pregnant april 21 and I am due the 27th of December as well. My appt is on Monday and I cant wait. So I guess we will both be 8 weeks on Monday. I wish you the best and let us know how everything is going. =0)
Congrats to everyone. Glad that more people are joining this board. I wanted to let you know that if anyone was planning on ordering a heartbeat doppler, mine came and works great! It's a sonoline b 3mhz fetal doppler. I ordered it from amazon for $62. I thought that was a pretty good price for my sanity. After my m/c I've been super nervous. I feel much better now that we've made it to 11 weeks and everything seems great, but now that my appts are 4 weeks apart, I have so many worries. I found the heartbeat the second I put it on yesterday (although some don't hear until 12-13 wks) and it was the best sound ever. It put me in the best mood. The only issue is that the number isn't exactly accurate I think because it's early and sort of faint. It fluctuates a lot, but I've read some reviews and that seems normal. I'm counting the heart rate as the highest number it climbs up to, which is right in line with what it was at my last appt.
Baby #1 due December 3, 2010
wow twins that is so exciting.. congrats tigereyez!! I know what you mean dlstamm about not getting an ultrasound yet.. i have not even had the first prenatal appointment other then him doing bloodwork to confirm my pregnancy I still have to wait just over another 2 weeks for that.. he doesnt see you until 10-12 weeks. But that is ok I guess..Lots of due dates around Christmas as mine is.. is everyone hoping to miss christmas or hoping for a christmas baby?? =) hope everyone is feeling well!!
I'm hoping to be early by a few weeks-as long as the baby is ok. My bday is a week before Christmas and I hated it as a child. I still kinda dislike it. My loving husband always forgets it or says that it just snuck up on him. I always felt "cheated" when I was a child, so I hope this baby comes earlier in Dec. so there is more of a separation between the bday and Christmas. I guess we'll see though. God has it figured out for me, so I try not to worry.
I had my first prenatal yesterday and my doc moved my due date up so this saturday I will be 10 weeks. So my due date now is December 19th and I hope I go closer to the begining of Decmeber. But like you said dlstamm God has it figured out so no worries. =0) We didnt get to hear the heart beat but we got to see my it...It was such a relief. Now to wait until June 18th. =0)
Hey everyone, You guys have been pretty quiet. How is everyone feeling? My fatigue is almost completley gone away I am so glad its not how it was like 6 weeks ago. Really super tired all day. And yes I have heard that regular soda is definatley better for you than diet during pregnancy.
It is really quiet! I hope everyone is feeling well. I will be 13 weeks on Thursday, I'm SO excited to be going into the 2nd trimester. It's a relief that the risk of m/c goes down, and also I feel great! I'm still tired, but not as exhausted, and I haven't been sick in a few weeks now. My latest is that I have some heartburn, but I will take that any day over being sick. I had to come out at work because I am 100% showing. I'm a teacher and I'm trying to hide it from my kids for as long as possible. It's been pretty hot, but I wear my jacket all day when I'm inside. They just had family life ed. a couple weeks ago (aka sex ed) and I think some of them caught on to how babies are made. I feel like they will look at me differently haha.
Out of curiosity, does anyone have any gut instincts about what they're having? My DH and I are both convinced it's a boy. No real reason, we're just so sure ,that we will be shocked (though equally happy) if it's a girl.
Baby #1 due December 3, 2010
Yea I cant wait to get into my 2nd Trimester too because of the risk of m/c gonig down and alot of the fatigue and naseau go away too. JuieB are you in maternity clothes yet? I still have been using my regular pants but using a rubber band for now. I think in like a couple of weeks or 3 weeks I will be in maternity clothes. =0) In the beggining I swore I was having a boy but then I started breaking out real bad like I was back in high school and I guess he myth is that when your having a girl you break out like that. So I dont know what im thinking now. lol! Are any of you going to find out the sex soon, like in a couple of weeks? My sister found out what she was having at week 14.
glad to hear that everyone is doing well and that the morning sickness is getting better. Crod you are right I asked my dr at our appointment yesterday and diet soda is definitly out until I have the baby she made it very clear that regular is MUCH better lol... With that said out due date was confirmed and is dec 26 and we got to see our little miracle on ultrasound, which always amazes me!! I cant wait to be into the second trimester so that the rest of the nausea will go away.. I am a few days away from 10 weeks so I have a little bit for that still.. going to be busy planning my daughters 1st birthday party which is the end of june but will try to keep checking in every once in awhile.. hope everyone continues doing well!!
