  • @krbjoy : I have a stupid anterior placenta too! I've been feeling occasional little flutters now and them for about 2 weeks, but if it wasn't for the precise location I feel them in, I'd assume it's just gas!

    My hips/lower back were also super sore a week or two ago. I got a prenatal massage and while I was hurting after from the deep massage, I've been doing really good since. I booked another one right before christmas, so that should start the holidays right :)

    Other than finding out we're having a boy and spending the weekend planning the nursery, it's pretty quiet in terms of appointments. Next visit to the OB is right after the Holidays.

    Hope everyone is doing well!

  • @KidShrink Yeah, I've felt some things, not sure what they are though...it sometimes feels like she has her arm or leg straight out into me...but then, that's all. 

    My bestest is a masseuse and has promised me some massages...I think I will hit her up for one real soon. Maybe here in the next couple weeks since I have vacation from work. I really need it.

  • I had an OB appointment on Monday and heard the heartbeat. It was 140. The heartbeat is music to my ears. There truly is no better sound than that to me right now. :)

    I have my A/S on Monday. I can't wait to see our little bean again!! :D

    I've felt some little flutters here and there. Saturday I really felt it and it was the first time I absolutely KNEW it was baby, without a doubt. It was awesome. :) I put my hand over the spot and pushed down a little afterwards hoping it'd happen again but it didn't. I haven't really felt anything since. I can't wait until it becomes a daily thing!

    Welcome to the second tri @HBamama2B!

    Does anyone have any fun plans for Christmas?

  • Welcome @HBMama2B and @Binnie505 !

    @AdorkablePixie : We're going to spend the holidays with our families, 6hrs from our new home. It's the first time we go back during the holidays (we go to my in-laws in Florida every 2nd year, so that's where baby will spend his first Christmas). We're also taking advantage of our time there to see friends that we no longer get to see on a regular basis even when we do go and visit...sonit's going to be VERY hectic for 9 days! I also seem to be coming down with a cold now (thanks to the very sniffly kid I saw last Thursday who was pretty much wiping his nose on me), so I'm hoping I'm better by then because it's going to be crazy! But we're so happy to see everyone! What about you?

  • I am 14 weeks today so I thought I would join in :)

    My EDD is June 15, 2016 and we are expecting one little butterball. (We announced to our friends and family on thanksgiving so the theme of a turkey kind of just stuck :))

    We find out the sex during the last week of January- can't wait!!

    Had my NT scan on Friday- measurement was 1.7mm. Also had my first round of blood work done.

    Next appointment is January 4. Just a routine check up and the second round of genetic testing. Should get results back at our 20 week appointment.

    I'm feeling pretty decent, except light headed and migraines every so often. I'm going to prenatals yoga, but last class had to just lay there because I felt like I was going to faint :(

  • @NB817 I have a cold too. It's the worst! Hope you feel better soon!

  • Hi everyone and welcome to the newbies! I cannot believe I'm 28 weeks tomorrow and will be in the 3rd tri! Can definitely say the 2nd tri was good for me- but now I'm starting to get the aches and pains and I'm slightly worried about my weight gain this past month (I blame thanksgiving). I'm starting to waddle and my lower back hurts, hips hurt, and it's harder to sleep (hard to change positions but glad I have my snoogle).

    Finally got a good ultrasound yesterday and got to see baby's face (although distorted) on the 4d ultrasound! I'm feeling her moving all the time too which is so cool. I'm just so happy right now in this journey. :)

    Hope you all can feel baby's kicks soon if you haven't yet and I wish you all a happy holiday season!! I'll be over on the 3rd tri check in next week so Ta-ta for now!

  • @KidShrink DH and I will be visiting family locally. I think we will be juggling my family and his family on the same day which is hard because my mom is an hour away from his moms. I might ask if he'd rather do Christmas Eve with my family and Christmas Day with his. We shall see!

    @NB817 you're only the second person that has guessed girl! Everyone else thinks boy. I do too. But if that tech says girl I might just cry. lol My mom had three kids before she finally got her little girl. i just always imagined it would be that way for me too, though I know it has nothing to do with us. Lol

  • Hello gals!!

    This is my first post here in second trimester! (Crazy to think)... I was 14 weeks on Wednesday so I think it's time I say hello! My EDD is June 15, 2016! We are not going to be finding out the sex, GO TEAM GREEN!

    Had my NT scan on 12/7.... Everything is perfect! We feel so blessed to say that! Like many of you, it's been a long road to get to this point and I'm just enjoying each and everyday of a healthy pregnancy!!

    I go back again on 12/28 for another routine check...

    Other than that, nothing much to ask or say... Just so happy to be here! <3
