PGAL Check-in 08/03/17

Hey everyone. I noticed no one started a August check in so I thought maybe we could try a weekly one? I've found these threads to be a great place for support. Anyway, let's get going! 

How far along are you?

Any appointments or tests coming up?

How are you feeling mentally/physically?

Any Questions? 

GTKY: Any tv/internet shows you're watching/binge watching/finally discovering after all these years? What do you recommend?

    How far along are you? 10w1d

    Any appointments or tests coming up? Tomorrow for follow up US & due date confirmation. I'm assuming I'll also get scheduled for NIPT if all goes well.

    How are you feeling mentally/physically? 
    Still taking things day by day. Trying not to get too excited yet but this is the furthest my husband & I have gotten so it's hard to not celebrate that milestone!

    Any Questions? 

    GTKY: Any tv/internet shows you're watching/binge watching/finally discovering after all these years? What do you recommend? 
    Game of Thrones & Supernatural. GoT is definitely a weekly watch but I'll confess that I wait for SPN to release a new season on Netflix so I can binge watch it. I tried watching new episodes weekly but it was too hard!

    I would say it's safe to assume this thread is a collective TW considering the topic.

    Good luck tomorrow @rainafire77!  @ash0625 When I was reading your "appointments" section, my heart felt like it could explode for happiness for you!  Sending you both so many positive vibes!!

    How far along are you? 10w1d

    Any appointments or tests coming up? Monday--ultrasound/meet with dr/bloodwork

    How are you feeling mentally/physically? 
    Mentally, I am still so nervous. I have had 2 great ultrasounds--but I can't shake that uneasy feeling.  Hopefully after next week's appointment my nerves will chill.  Physically, I am feeling decent--still feel crappy and tired at the end of the day.  Hoping my energy is back by the time school starts in 2 weeks!  Preschoolers will not care if I feel like crap.  

    Any Questions? 
    nope.

    I am just ready for Fall shows to come back on.  I love Grey's still, Blacklist, Law & Order.  This sounds crazy, but I've been getting a little bored this summer, so I have been  watching news stations (CNN, MSNBC, and FOX mostly) and comparing what they report/how they report it.  Yes, that is nerdy.  I love politics.  It amazes me how different all of the stations report and what they are actually reporting.  It's been interesting.

    I can't do political shows! It drives up my blood pressure. My husband's client (he's a in home care provider and she rooms with us.) is a hoarder but now that she can't hoard stuff she boards news shows, recording EVERYTHING on DVD. My husband had to make a rule that she's not allowed to turn on any news when he's up and hasn't yet had coffee.

    just had my first appt with my midwife last week- quick US showed a healthy baby! I found baby with my doppler the other night and that was reassuring. NT scan on 8/14. 

    How are you feeling mentally/physically?
    Physically still absolutely horrific. Mentally, I feel pretty okay right now. Moments of panic but mostly okay.

    Any Questions? 
    not right now!

    Any appointments or tests coming up?
    14 week appt w/ the OB on 8/23, Nuchal Fold u/s should be very soon.  NIPT bloodwork was drawn Monday.

    How are you feeling mentally/physically?
    A little better physically although I have days where I randomly revert back to being super queasy and SO tired.  
    Mentally it's a little more challenging.  I had an SCH at 7 weeks that bled heavily and scared me to death.  Ultrasound showed the baby was in good shape & I went 3 weeks with no more bleeding.  And then this past Sunday morning it started actively bleeding again.  It was a loooooong wait until Monday morning when I got in to see the OB.  Thankfully, the baby looks great and was wiggling/kicking like crazy.  So now we just wait for things to heal up and try to be patient.

    Any Questions? 
    None I can think of!

    Congratulations @ash0625!
    Good luck @rainafire77 tomorrow and @magnolia305 next week!
    @sgio7485 congrats on your last appointment and finding your LO on the Doppler!

    Tomorrw and I can't wait! My DH and I tried using our home Doppler last week briefly without success. Granted we used it when I was further along with DD so it was easier, but not finding LO didn't help my PGAL brain. The good news is my nausea has still been present. So just hoping to hear LO tomorrow for reassurance. 

    How are you feeling mentally/physically?
    see above - stressed hoping for a good appointment

    11w5d.

    Any appointments or tests coming up?

    I think I have one this Friday that I have to reschedule due to dd1's 7th grade orientation. I should receive my NIPT results this Friday. I'm hoping the genetic counselor will get it by Friday.

    How are you feeling mentally/physically?

    I still get bouts of queasiness here and there and heartburn later in the day. Mentally, I'm feeling fine at the moment. I was able to hear the heart beat on my doppler earlier this week. :)

    Any Questions? 

    GTKY: Any tv/internet shows you're watching/binge watching/finally discovering after all these years? What do you recommend?

    We're currently watching GoT, The Mist, The Strain (getting caught up), FTWD (mid-season break), and have several shows we need to catch up on: American Gods, The Handmaid's Tale (read the book last Oct for a graduate writing course. The show is a faithful adaptation.), Mr. Robot, Arrow, The Flash, Fargo, 12 Monkeys.

    Marvel/Netflix's The Defenders premiers this month. We'll binge watch it in about a day or two. Can't wait. We mostly watch sci-fi, fantasy, crime thrillers/dramas, action/comic book, and apocalyptic/dystopian shows.

    How are you feeling mentally/physically
    ? I'm feeling good physically, which makes me worry at times.. a little anxious mentally, but I will feel so much better once I get the NIPT results.

    Any Questions? 
    none at the time

    GTKY: Any tv/internet shows you're watching/binge watching/finally discovering after all these years? What do you recommend?
    I'm in need of some new shows to watch so I'll definitely scope out all your lists,  I'm sad shark week is over and looking forward to Ray Donovan next week!

    New to forum! 

    Bit of background: I had an induction and delivery in March 2017 at 21 weeks pregnant. Have an 18 month old little boy who is my world! 

    I'm 11 weeks along this time around. 
    I have 12 week NT scan coming up and am beginning to feel anxious. Part of me wants to ask them to turn the screen off so I can't see and try and read into every shadow! Would that be weird?? 
    Physically just tired. 
    Emotionally I've been quite good until recently and now it's all sinking in that I'm in a position where my heart could be broken all over again. 
    Thankful to have a community like this to share how I'm feeling. Thanks for being here  
    Currently loving GOT and Taboo (omg Tom Hardy)

    @bigred226 Welcome and I am glad you are here.  Pgal brain is hard to turn off--hopefully we can help you through it! 
  • Options
    @msunshine123 Hope you get to hear something today to relieve that anxiety. 

    @soulcupcake I keep going back and forth on buying a doppler. I have it pulled up on my computer at work every day and just haven't clicked "purchase" yet. Glad its been a positive experience for you. 

    @bigred226 So sorry to hear about your loss, but glad to have you here.

    @ash0625 thank you - heard LO's heartbeat all is good. Such a relief!

    How far along are you?
    14w3d

    Any appointments or tests coming up?
    I'm currently in limbo, again, due to a Fifth's Disease dx  8 weeks ago. I had an u/s Monday, and man, let me tell you, when the Radiologist himself walked in the room I almost lost it.

    Luckily everything was okay, so far. Another u/s in a couple of weeks. About a month until we (hopefully) get the all clear.

    How are you feeling mentally/physically?
    Physically: like crap. I'm tired. The nausea seems to be subsiding but the heartburn is picking up... which brings on nausea.
    Mentally: depends on the day.

    Any Questions? 

    GTKY: Any tv/internet shows you're watching/binge watching/finally discovering after all these years? What do you recommend?

    I haven't watched a lot of TV lately. I go to bed with my daughters.
