Re: **2nd Tri Check-in Feb 8th**

  • Hi there. I am new to the 2nd tri board and I am so happy to be here. 

    My name is Terra, I live in AZ with my hubby of 10 years (this october). We have a son named Noah that is 21 months and we are expecting our next son, Wyatt this summer. My EDD is 8/4 but because I will be having another C section my doc think sometime the end of July. 

    I can't wait to get to know you all!

    Hi everyone! 17 weeks this week :) We had our anatomy scan today and everything was normal, or as the doctor said, 'perfect!' We even saw baby's hand with 5 very well defined fingers, waving at us! Love this little babe so much already!!!

    I told you all last week that I got transferred to high risk pregnancy at the hospital because of some antibodies in my blood. We also met with our high risk OB today. He is running some more tests to find out exactly which antibodies are in my blood and if they pose risk or not. Praying every second of every day that the results we get in a few days come back negative and that baby will be safe and healthy. I'll keep you all posted when I hear.

    QOTW: I cannot get enough milk! We have been going through 3-4 gallons of milk a week! Still loving carbs and cheese. Had a Belgian waffle craving and got my fix yesterday!

    @mechelita44 I'll add you to my prayers that your bloodwork comes back negative! 

    I'm excitedly joining this board today! I'm 14w2d and after a little scare this weekend am doing great! We still have to wait quite a bit for our anatomy scan and finding out whether we're having a boy or a girl; we don't have the scan until 3/18 and are finding out with my family on 3/20. For now, I'm just enjoying listening to the baby's heartbeat and hearing the baby moving on the doppler. I can't wait to feel the baby kick! My next doctor appointment is on Thursday. 

    I'm not really having cravings, but love carbs, especially Ramen with siracha and chives. Yum!

  • @mechelita44 Ditto with @riveridgional You are in my thoughts and prayers that everything turns out ok. 

    Oh I had the Sriracha cravings bad with my first and lately I've been drinking more milk too, but what I really want with this one is freaking candy! Anything sweet. So I've been trying to eat a lot of fruit but the chocolate craving always wins. I'm obsessed with Honey Buns too! GAH!

  • Hello ladies. Hope everything goes well with @mechelita44 and @riveridgional ;

    i just had my 22 weeks OB appointment and everything is going well. Baby girl has the most beautiful heartbeat :). We recently moved to our new house so we are still organizing things around and still need to buy furnitures so it gets really tiring. But we are excited because after the house furnitures I can finally get started with baby nursery.
     
    It's milk and Honey Nut Cheerios for me. And fresh cucumbers with salt and pepper.

  • Welcome to 2nd tri @TerraMae80 and @riveridgional keep us posted on how it goes! 

    I had my 24 week appointment on Friday. Ob said I'm measuring 3 weeks ahead again. I had to remind him there's no guess work as to when this baby was made as he questioned my memory on my LMP!

  • So ob has me worried that they will move up my RCS date. I really don't want that to happen and hope baby boy stays put because DDs first dance recital just got changed to the day before c-section date! And I will be devastated if I miss it. 

    QOTW: cinnamon life cereal. I seriously eat a bowl every night after DD goes to bed. I suppose it's better than eating a bowl of ice cream, right?!?!?

    @TerraMae80 and @riveridgional Welcome to your 2nd trimesters!!! So happy to see you both here!

    @NB817 that's crazy that they might change your RCS date! How soon will they / you have to decide?

    And thank you ladies for your kind words and prayers... they worked!!!! My test results came back NEGATIVE!!!!! Baby is OK!!!!!!!!!! I'm so thrilled, relieved and just plain happy! :) :) :)

    I'll still be seeing the high risk OB because of my autoimmune disease. Next appointment and ultrasound on 2/29. Ahh I feel like I can breathe again!

  • Yay @mechelita44 that's fantastic news! 

    As for me he didn't say that he's definitely going to but he eluded to the fact that it's a possibility. It's just annoying to me because I'm such a planner. Lol. Plus the date of the c/s right now is my husbands mom's bday (she died when he was 6 so I thought how wonderful this baby would have her birthday). Oh and just a creepy factor this baby was made on what would of been my FILs bday but he passed away last January.
