Pregnant after 35

PG>35 Weekly Check-In (OMG It's Monday Again Edition)

Hi, everyone! I LOVED everyone's silly factoids from last week! Clearly if I need to imitate certain animals or accents, all I need to do is ask you lovely ladies! Stick out tongue My goofy factoid is that I apparently spent more time upside down than right side up as a kid--I would watch TV with my head hanging upside down over the edge of the couch a lot, and I was unbeatable in local headstanding competitions--I could do 15 minutes easy. Unfortunately, this ability did not stick with me, and when I decided to show off in college, I was able to headstand for a few minutes, but I broke a whole bunch of capillaries in my face in the process. And that was the last time I ever did that. I think I got everyone's updates, but be sure to let me know about any more. OK, buckle up, 'cause herrrrre we go!

  • We found out on Friday that we're team blue! 

    QOTW: I'd go back to Hawaii with DH. We went there for our honeymoon and it was great. Such a nice, relaxing break after all of the stress of the wedding. I'd love to go back before DS2 arrives, but it will likely be another few years before we make it there.

    That's hard!!  Maybe Costa Rica....I would love to have a secluded bungalow in the jungle close to a river or something...or on the beach with the white sand.

  • We're having a baby girl (Emmeline) :)  

     QOTW:  I'd go to St Lucia and enjoy the sun, water, and the cooling winds.  If I get too hot, I could hide in the rainforest for a while and cool down.

  • Hi, 

    Please add me to the list :)

    hydrangeagirl 

    EDD:  7/3/13

     

    QOTW:  We've been so blessed to be able to travel.  If I could pick one place to go it would have to be one of my favorite places in the world: Ischia, Italy.  We've been there several times because it is the most beautiful and relaxing island known for its healing thermal sea waters and thermal spas. We were just there in May and thinking about it now brings back beautiful memories :)

    Me, 41; DH 38; TTC since July 2012, 1st round of Clomid, BFP on 10/19, what an incredible blessing!  M/c on 7w3d; D&C on 11/30; 4th round of Clomid 100mg = BFP on 04/19!!! M/c #2 at 7w; D&C on 5/30, then repeat D&C on 7/1.  Saline u/s on 8/2, uterus looks great!  Will start TTC in 09/13 w/ Clomid 100mg. Surprise natural BFP on 8/25!!! Beta #1=95, #2=182, #3=404!  EDD 5/4/13...Grow baby grow!


  • QOTW: New Zealand/Australia. Beach, sea, rugby, hiking, horseback riding... Paradise! The hubster has never been, so I'd love to show him around (I've only been to Australia, not New Zealand.) Second runner-up would be Slovenia-- maybe the Lake Bled area...

  • Update: Had our NT scan on Friday and baby looked great, bouncing and jumping, stretching and rolling. It was a wonderful experience with a fantastic sonographer.

    QOTW: I would repeat our honeymoon. DH and I had spend a couple of weeks enjoying the hot springs around the lake country of BC, and touring Canadian and US National Parks in BC, Montana, and Wyoming. I could really go for some day-long soaks in the hot springs again. Have dinner, and go sit under the stars in the water again.

    Paris- I was supposed to go for this bday, but ta da! I am pregnant! And not comfortable travelling internationally while in this state. So it's slated for DH and I in the next 5 years.

    Share your updates and vents:

    We had our A/S at 17w5d and everything was measuring right on track, no abnormalities cited and we discovered we are having a BOY!

    So, of course I promptly went and ordered the whole nursery. :) We have another scan the Thursday after Tgiving, just to give the heart another once over (although it had 4 chambers and looked good, it was just really small and the PN wants to double check).

    They tried to "encourage" me to take more tests to confirm that there are no abnormalities- at this point I'm over any testing and I kindly refused.

  • QOTW: That is a really hard question.  Right now I am so tired that I kind of want to say in my house with no one to bother me for a week.

    Updates and vents: My BP is still giving me trouble and it is very annoying to me.  Things are starting to feel very real.  I had to sit down with my boss yesterday and talk about what we were going to do about my maternity leave.  I have to have a plan written in the next month of how my work will get done while I am gone.  I don't know how time went so fast.  It seems like I was just complaining that time was standing still.

    definitely finding out!

  • Oh wow! July due dates!  (And when I first started on here, November seemed so far away...) Congrats to the new additions to the board.. and everyone else, of course.

    Danuli, I think my DD is going to develop the same skill. She already likes to hang upside down from the couch.. or her daddy. ("Lift me by by ankles!" -- silly girl. Smile )

    QOTW:
    I'd like to head to one of the Disney theme parks. Originally, we were going to go to Disneyland in July, but this was canceled due to *trumpet blares* Pregnancy, yes. And having to save up vacation time and money. So hopefully in the next few years we can take both kids to enjoy.

    Updates/Vents:
    Two days until due date, and waiting to see if LO comes tomorrow (to fulfill that though I'd had for weeks that he'd come early) or if he takes after big sister and is at least a few days late. If not tomorrow, I'll find out Thursday if the doctors will "threaten" with an induction on the following Monday (as apparently they only do this on Mondays) or see if he comes before the following Monday.
    My family is planning on coming down tomorrow (my mom will be staying for the long haul to help after first being here to stay with DD for the delivery.) They'd been thrown off by the storm effects, but call every day to ask "Is he coming yet?" (I'll see if my sister decides she has to help enforce birth if LO doesn't come before she has to head home on Saturday...)
    Whee... Sorry, babbling. Oh and I'm on half days at work until Thursday then my boss said to not come back until after my recovery. (Except to visit with the baby.)

    Updates:  Nothing much going on.  I don't have another appt. until after Thanksgiving.  I have seen alot of my extended family in the last week and its nice to see how excited they all are for us.

    first name (optional):  MC

    due date:  5/19/13

    sex of baby (if known, or will it be a surprise?):  Don't know yet and undecided if we are going to find out

     

    Every time we go away, we talk to people and always ask what their favorite vacation spot was/is.  We honeymooned in Aruba because so many people  had said it was their favorite on previous vacations.  While in Aruba,  a bunch of people said how they loved Aruba but that if we ever had the chance, to go the Cayman Islands.  So I would love to go there and relax on the beautiful beaches.  Sleep in a lounge chair. Sigh.

    Probably Machu Picchu.  We were suppose to go this December but I don't think climbing mountains at high altitude would be the best thing right now :)

    I had my regular OB checkup last week and everything looks good so far.  Got to see little baby girl lying on her side with arm tucked under her head (just like how her mama sleeps!) Anxiously looking forward to our A/S appt next week!

    I just turned 35.

    If I could travel anywhere: It would be to New England (MA, NH, ME, VT, CT, RI). I grew up in MA. It has been ten years since I been to New England.

  • QOTW: If you could travel to any place in the world (guaranteed safe trip, of course, you won?t go into labor or get sick from the water or anything!) to relax by yourself or with your SO before the baby comes, where would you go and why?

     This is a tough one. I would say Italy since i have tried to go at least 4 times now and various things have come up the last one being this little one. Maui is one of my favorite places though and always love going there. Don't do much just relax but it is so beautiful

    Biophysical profiles continue to go well. I did have a very small amount of protein in my urine. I am hoping it was just a one off and not the sign of possible complications. Baby is breech and has been for sometime. We are not going to try an inversion. not comfortable with the risks and % of it not working. We now have a c-section scheduled for Dec 3

  • QOTW: I'd go to Canyon Ranch Spa, solo. Massages and pampering all day with someone else cooking me health yummy meals. And yes, no DH to take care of, just me.

    Updates/vents: a quiet week! Worries me that LO was quieter too, but the other boards say this is normal/ok. We started to make progress on the nursery, which was fun:)

  • I missed last week, and am late this week - we took the kids to Disneyland - yes, at 33 wks. It was nice, but not quite the fun-filled adventure I was hoping for (that I've had at other times). I was T-I-R-E-D.

    No real update. GD still seems well controlled. Today is my MW appt - so we will see what is what when I get there. As of last appt, I had still only gained 3lbs, so they are thrilled about that. I've started taking Red Raspberry leaf & will start primrose oil next week to start prepping my body for labor. I used it with the last two and really felt like it helped.

    I'd love to go ANYWHERE with DH that included the kids, dogs & chickens being left home, in good hands so I didn't have to give them another thought - and then he and I could just putter around and explore/be tourists somewhere.

  • Apparently I haven't updated things on this check in yet.  Oops.

    I had my 8w appt with my OB on Nov 2nd.  Got a referral to a peri (AMA & hx of pre-e) and a geneticist (AMA & 1:10 T21 odds with my sons pregnancy).  Had to wait until 11/9 to make appt with them due to insurance.  Still waiting on a call back from the peri, but I have an NT scan on November 28 (exactly 12w) with the geneticist.  I'm terrified of that appt.  I'll get the results from the blood test/ultrasound there...and that is where I got the news of the 1:10 odds last pregnancy.  Even worse, I'll be at the NT alone since my DH will be with DS (timing and location of the appt aren't conducive to them both coming with me). 

    Getting those referrals and making the calls made it really real that I'm considered high risk this time around Tongue Tied
