  • Yay Ladies! Thanks for checking in! I miss seeing you around :) 
    @livingthedream - the wait for the first appointment and the wait for the first US always felt like eternity to me. It's exciting that you will have the maternity21 test to find out what you are having though :) 
    @kindbytealikat - I love the name Gabriella :) I'm sorry about your SILs loss.

  • @kindbytealikat I've been MIA and I think I missed your BFP announcement, congrats!!!! I'm sorry for your SILs loss. It may hurt her a bit to hear that due date, but I don't honestly think many people would think about that when TTC, I'm sure she'll be okay with it after a while. Or maybe just fib it and give a few days before or after? My MW with my son even said she likes to say "the first week in March" or something general like that.

    @LivingTheDream I honestly only had one ultrasound with my DS, it was the anatomy scan. Part of me wished I had more, but at the same time I knew I wouldn't because I was with a MW instead of an OB, lol. 
    DS1 born 2/28/16
    DS2 due 12/12/18

  • @LivingTheDream 11w does seem like a long time but at least by then he/she will look more like a baby and less like a peanut! I did NIPT last time and think it should just be standard practice at this point. Excited to find out what you're having!

    @kindbytealikat  why not Rain if you like Raene but not RAE? I think your SIL will understand that you can't really plan when your EDD will be, but that's tough. I would probably go with @CecilB93  and just be vague or fudge it a few days

    Some people were saying that the younger you are the less accurate the NIPTs are and can cause undo worry. I had one last time w/ my second, but I'm all old and stuff. 
          
  • @notthefather - Yay!!! So glad to see you check in :) I am so happy your appointment went well! I can't believe you are 8 weeks already! Love the US picture.
