Re: ****3rd Trimester Check-in**** 08/03

  • Questions:
    1) How far along? 40 weeks tomorrow..... still pregnant. boo.
    2) Any appointments this week? Thursday if I don't have the baby before then. Sadly, I think I will make it to that appointment. My doctor said we will schedule my induction and do an ultrasound at that time.
    3) How are you feeling? Anxious. I'm so anxious! I'm worried my cervix won't perform and I will need an induction and eventual c section. I had a LEEP procedure shortly before getting pregnant and my doctor is worried that the scar tissue isn't allowing my cervix to dilate. I'm just nervous....

    QOTW: I hadn't even thought about the sleeping thing... I'm excited to sleep on my back and I am really excited to lose weight. I've been a little nuts since getting pregnant. I told my husband that I'm convinced women are constantly checking him out! He loves it!! 
    Our story:
    Married 7/2013 - been TTC ever since
    Me: 35 - normal test results
    Husband: 30 - Concentration:10.8 Million/ml, Motility: 16%, Progressive Motility: 9%, Morphology: 3%
    First started talking to fertility specialist in 4/2014
    IVF #1 
    11/13 - 19 retrieved, 18 ICSI, 15 fertilized. 
    Transfer 11/16 - 1 blastocyst transfered, 3 frosties
    11/28 - Beta #1 BFP! 12dp5dt beta 1,699
    11/30 - Beta #2 14dp5dt 3,400 
    12/8 - No signs of baby at first U/S (6 weeks)
    12/15 - yolk sac, fetal pole and heartbeat all there! I'm still pregnant! One girl, due 8/4

  • @carrieharry79 Yaaaa for hitting 40 weeks... boooo for hitting 40 weeks. I understand how you are feeling. I'm not going to lie I haven't really enjoyed anything either. Send an update on Thursday to see what the doctor says... Fx for you! 

    1) How far along? 36w4d
    2) Any appointments this week? Thursday for another check up. Hopefully there is some progress. 
    3) How are you feeling? Crap. I feel like crap. She is head down according to my last sonogram and my ob said everything looks great. On Saturday night I swelled up pretty bad and was having Braxton Hicks 3x an hour. No sleep. I'm just really ready. 

    QOTW: I want to do everything. I want to sleep on my stomach. I want to drink a damn margarita. I want to be able to put my underwear on without having to hold on to something so I don't fall. OH and I would like to see my lady parts again without using a mirror. Just saying.

  • I'm 36 weeks 5 days today. I have been having tons of contractions, so I am happy to be almost 37 weeks because I have to reach 37 to give birth at the birth center. Now of course I know I will go past my due date since I have been afraid of going early! Lol. I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon, but I don't think I will have them check me this week since my cervix was checked last week. I am not sleeping well. Especially last night, because I have a sore throat plus my normal aches and pains.

    QOTW: I know from having my son that I won't be having drinks or laying on my stomach due to breast feeding. Laying on your stomach when your boobs are hard and full of milk is super uncomfortable! I'm just going to be happy to be able to get up and down and bend over without this huge belly in my way.

    Hi Ladies!  I'm finally joining you here - can't believe i'm in my 3rd tri already - time has flown by.  My due date is 10/24 and team green!

    Questions:
    1) How far along? 28wks 4 Days
    2) Any appointments this week?  I have an OB appt on Thursday
    3) How are you feeling?  Tired so very tired.  I spent 4 days in the hospital few weeks ago due to unexplained high fevers.  After testing me for everything under the sun they think I just had a virus.  I haven't gotten my energy back yet!

    QOTW: What is the first thing you are going to do postpartum? Drinks ? Sleep on your stomach  I'm going to eat bread!  Recently diagnosed with GD and I'm reallying missing bread!  It's the one thing my sugar levels haven't tolerated yet.

  • So here I am.... 40 weeks and 3 days pregnant... had an appt yesterday and they did an ultrasound. Estimated the baby to be 9 lbs (yikes) and scheduled an induction for Tuesday. Said I was a fingertip dilated, but I think she lied to me because, for some reason, I started sobbing in the exam room. I'm clearly too hormonal and need to have this baby!!

  • @Justone13 omg it's almost time for you!!!! How are you? Is it ok to ask this here?
  • Hey @przemosbabe I'm doing ok! Went today for a check up. Not dilated or anything. Tuesday is my last day of work. I go in Wednesday to get checked. Thursday I go in for induction. If it doesn't work my ob is going to send me home and have me come back Monday to try again. So hoping it works and I don't need a c section. How are you?
