Hi lena241, I'm so glad your appt went well! I have one coming up on Thurs. then another ultrasound to see the face. The dr's actually scared me with that one because they said parts of the first ultrasound were inconclusive. I'm probably worrying over nothing but still, it is hard not to. On the up side, I feel the baby a lot now and my hubby was able to feel my belly twitch a few times the other night so that was really exciting for him! I love feeling her move, it is definitley reassuring, just like hearing the heartbeat!
Glad the appt went well. It stinks to wait!! I know what you mean!! I'm so afraid that we're going to go in next week (the 10th is my 'anatomy' appt) and they're going to say, "oh wait, it's a BOY!" after I bought girl stuff! I guess I could sell it, though.
We went to another clinic to find out the gender before the doctor would tell us b/c I didn't want to wait any longer. I know it's terrible to be so impatient with it, but I wanted to know!!
gostomskiart--we're almost 22 weeks. Can you believe it? It seems like it's going by so fast, but at the same time, i want it to be here!!
My husband is in the AF and we found out that we'll be moving at some point, we just don't know if it will be before or after the baby is born. I'm desperately hoping it's before. Did I mention before that I'm slowly beginning to hate where I work?!?
LOL, brittnee, it is too bad we don't live closer because I swear we have parallel lives! It is crazy that we are almost 22 weeks, it is like you count up to 20 weeks and now it feels like the count down (scary and exciting). My hubby and I are currently in a 1bedroom apt and looking to buy a house. I don't know if that will be before or after the baby either so I know the feeling of hoping it is before. I would like to have that "nesting" time before and get settled. And speaking of jobs..ugh...I can't stand mine! I'm a graphic designer, the place I work doesn't have a lot of room for creativity, plus there is not much to do so I'm bored and I hate being bored! Not to mention the people here are not that friendly. I shouldn't complain too much because I'm leaving in Nov. to be a SAHM for awhile, still, you should see me on Fri. I'm so happy because the week is over then Mon. morning rolls around and I look like I've been punished severely (lol).
Hello everyone and congrats! Im due on jan 25 with my second and very excited because i had my ultrasound last week and it came out it a was a boy!! I have a 6 years old daughter athough she wanted a girl and she is very sad about it, i have to say that im a little bit concerned because she said she doesnt want a baby and the she is going to hurt him when he arrives, thats why i think is better not to wait that much to have your second. This baby wasnt really planed, but i love him since the day i knew i was pregnant, but my daughter is sooo jealous Im really scared. Please give me some advice. Good luck to you all!!!!!
Hi keniapaez, congrats on your baby boy!! It sounds like your daughter is venting her disappointment right now. As you prepare for your son I would make sure to include her (especially if she shows an interest) with fun things like decorating the babys room/area, picking out baby supplies etc. Does she like dolls? Maybe (when you are further along) picking out a baby doll so you both have "babies". Also, books are great, I would research or ask a librarian what childrens books deal with the arrival of a new baby then you can read it together. I hope these suggestions help and that your daughter gets more accustom to the idea of a boy rather than a girl.
Ty gostomskiart, Im trying to do those things, fortunaly my daughter is getting more ecxited about having a baby brother. I think she will be better later on as she gets used to it. Sometimes she cries and tell her dad that we are going to love the baby more than her and he told her that is not like that , we love them both the same way.So , how are u doing? are you sleeping better? how much weight have you gained? its getting close. Im So excited, i cant wait to meet my baby boy!!!!!!
keniapaez, I'm glad to hear your daughter is warming up to the idea of having a brother. Something I thought of, you can tell her how special she is (being the first born) and just make sure to give her some extra special attention time when the baby is here.
I'm doing great, I've gained about about 15lbs so far, sleeping with lots of pillows (lol) and trying not to give into every "bad" craving I have! My hubby and I are also starting the process of house buying so just another added crazyness to my list!
I had my OB appointment on 9/24/08. The ultrasound tech and the doctor are 80% sure it is another girl. They couldnt give a 100% because the cord was bunched up between the legs....AHHH!
We are picking girl names for now, and are hoping to have another ultrasound. Does anyone remember of they do another one before you deliver? I had my DD 4 years ago and had a "special" pregnancy so I had a few more than what is usually given.
The nurse is also saying that the baby is about 1 week behind and pushed my due date back until the 29th of January, but she also said the baby is 1 lb, and that is what it should measure weight wise for the 24th week, which would be on target with my original due date of 1/22/09.
