Good afternoon, ladies! I hope everyone is having a great Monday!!!
This is a check-in for anyone pregnant after a loss. Being pregnant after a loss comes with a lot of emotions and, while we're thrilled to be here, it's scary as well. Hopefully we can use this check-in to find support and friendship in other women going through a similar experience.
I'll post the check-in every Monday.
*** Sending lots of positive thoughts and luck to everyone with appointments this week: HimandMeplus3, wmorgan003, KLJ3, April!, Emily1107, pnutg, WAis4Ris, tuffytiff ***
Welcome to all the new check-in members: Sad panda because there weren?t any new members this week.
If this is your first check-in, please post an intro with your story.
*~*~*~* Lots of T&Ps to KLJ3 for her anatomy scan this week! *~*~*~*
cgiles120812 - Glad to hear you are continuing to feel good, but sorry to hear that the gas has increased. I think that?s part of the 2nd trimester? It definitely was a problem for me last night :(
Emily1107 - Good luck at your appointment today! And yay for officially popping! Looking pregnant is a good thing :)
mom2be0513 - How was your appointment last week? I hope you were able to hear the heartbeat! And were you able to find out if you were having a boy or a girl?
wmorgan003 - I?m so glad to hear that your back is feeling better! I hope you have an awesome appointment this week!
lavril - YAY for a great NT scan!! Congrats! I?ve also been struggling with neck pain / tension that seems to get worse overnight. Perhaps it?s time for a new pillow?
bethanyreese - Oh no! I?m so sorry to hear about your whooping cough! Are the antibiotics working? I really hope you are feeling better this week.
HoolahZinger - I?m really happy to hear that your headaches are getting better and the new med works if you need it too. I have my FX that you don?t need to take any further steps.
pnutg - Good luck at your appointment this week! I have my FX that you?ll be able to hear the HB on doppler for the first time.
bananers - I?m sorry to hear that your PgAL brain was in overdrive, but I?m hoping that this week is better for you. (((hugs)))
E&Jhssweethearts - Yay for your boss compromising and you scheduling your a/s. I?m happy to hear that worked out (even though she was out of line).
Skk1977 - I hope you had a great appointment last week and were able to hear the HB on doppler!
dmbabe67 - Crap. I?m so sorry to hear that you are still struggling with the bleeding. That really sucks, but I hope you are able to find some reassurance in seeing a healthy and happy LO every time.
AudUy - Yay! I?m so happy to hear that you are continuing to feel better on your meds. And re: the snoogle -- I have to fight my dog for it every time I put it in the bed. He loves it more than I do!
nortiz03 - I?m glad to hear you are feeling well! I hope you had a great appointment last week!
dillngr9 - I have my FX that your nausea starts to let up soon and you and Zofran can go your separate ways. I?m hoping that it?s at least doing a good job controlling the nausea while you are taking it.
annarussell05 - I?m so sorry to hear that you?ve been struggling. Huge (((hugs))). Being PgAL is really hard and I hope that this week brings you more comfort than the prior week. Did your OB have any reasoning for your itchy arms?
tricia560 - I?m happy to hear that you?re feeling pretty well overall, but am sorry to hear about the heartburn. I know it can be terrible for some women -- have you found any relief?
KLJ3 - Lots of luck at your a/s this week!!! Also, I hope this week brought you better sleep than last week. Turning off the brain is really hard, I know.
Brianswife1227 - I?m sorry to hear that you are feeling so tired. Pregnancy exhaustion can be a real beast. I hope this week brings you better sleep!
HimandMeplus3 - Best of luck at your 3D u/s today! I hope your LO cooperates and you are able to find out if you are having a boy or a girl!
krwact - I?m so happy to hear that you are enjoying the check-in! I love doing it -- it really keeps me in the loop re: what is going on with everyone. Speaking of...I don?t think you are crazy for having a preference for sex. I just hope that you are happy with whatever your a/s shows in less than two weeks!
tuffytiff - Good luck at your appointment on Friday! I?m sorry to hear about your scare last week. That would have absolutely terrified me. But I?m soooo happy to hear that everything looks good. I hope you don?t have any more scares this pregnancy.
How far along are you and how are you feeling?
Any updates or appointments coming up that you'd like to share?
Are you feeling any movement / flutters?
Random GTKY - I keep seeing previews for all the big holiday movies. Are there any that you really want to see?
If you?ve made your anatomy scan appointment, please share so I can be sure to include it in the check-in. It?s a big u/s, so I want to make sure that all the special T&Ps and FX get done :)
(I have it written down if you told me last week)
Also, please feel free to add any suggestions or comments to the check-in so we can make it as useful and helpful as possible.
I hope you all have a great day!!!
