  • @southernlady07 what a great trip!!!! Goats are the best!!!!

    @spottedginger I'm glad you mentioned this. I was just thinking about how I'm feeling so much more worn out this pregnancy and I think I was in better shape to start this time

  • @DanyTargaryen so glad you got good news today! I’m sorry for all the stress of last week though.  I bought a Baby Cache dresser for DS’s big boy room at BRU final day clearance on Friday and am very excited because it is really nice.

  • @spottedginger - I'm glad you found a good one! We did Baby Cache for DS's crib, dresser, and changing table topper and it seems like really good quality for the price!

  • So Saturday we ended up getting 3-4" of really wet heavy snow. Fortunately it all melted off the driveway. Unfortunately they are calling for 6-12 more inches of snow starting tonight and then cold temps for the foreseeable future.... Wtf April???

  • @MandyMost may I ask how the amnio was? Mine is scheduled for May 4, and I’m a little nervous, should I arrange for help w dd the next day or will it be fine to resume normal activities?? They haven’t walked me through it at all, I’m  sure they will but i’m curious to hear personal experience too!

    Note to self...no matter what time you eat dinner a midnight snack is not only okay but encouraged! Woke up and immediately got sick this morning but I think it is from my blood sugar getting too low in the night.

    edited to fix autocorrect...

  • @mrsman2018 I think it would be fun to start up ticker changes again. I think when the board first got going there were too many threads and not a lot to report so a lot of threads got dropped.

  • @MandyMost - I'm sorry you also got concerning results originally, but I'm so happy for you to hear your amnio came back ok!!! In our practice the only way to get a first tri u/s is to opt-in to the NT scan so I do, but I definitely understand now why a lot of moms opt out.

  • @jhjocelyn I'm happy to share my amnio experience. First of all, I REALLY didn't want to do an amnio because of the (very, very slight) risks involved, but the concerning screening test I had made me weigh the risks and go for it. The worst part of the whole amnio experience was by far my fear and anxiety over a complication and/or getting back bad results.

    Anyway, the actual experience: The do it in the ultrasound room, and they started with a regular ultrasound. Basically like the anatomy scan, where they start looking at everything. Then the doc came in, asked how I was, if I had any more questions, blah blah blah, talked to the tech and another doc about the best spot to put the needle, based on what they saw on the screen. Then wiped my belly with a bunch of iodine swabs. Then I closed my eyes! But the put the needle in...it feels like a regular needle stick, not pleasant but not bad either. It only takes a couple minutes max. Then they had me initial the 2 testtubes of fluid they had taken out, and we were done. The actual procedure literally took less than 5 minutes, start to finish, including the prep. But with the ultrasound first, I was there for 30-45 minuets. 

    My doc told me not to go to the gym, but otherwise normal activity was fine. I did try to take it a little easy, though. There was a bit of a cramp in the area they suck me, but otherwise I was fine. The next day we took my toddler to the zoo, and it really wasn't THAT much walking, but i started to get a cramp, and decided I just wanted to sit down and relax so we left a little early. It felt better after sitting for a while. The second day everything felt back to normal.

  • @MandyMost Thank you! We skipped the amnio last time knowing DD had a 25% chance of having cf, we monitored closely and let the newborn screen pick it up, since it wouldn’t change the first few days care anyways. Dd is a rainbow baby and we did not want to take any additional chances. 

    This time, we have the same 25% chance, but having cf experience now would prefer to know ahead and be prepared. If there is no cf we want to bank the cord blood to hopefully help dd in the future. If there is, we will prep our home, family, and medical teams ahead of time.  
    Our amnio is set to be right after our anatomy scan, so that makes more sense knowing how they did it for you.

  • We had to clean out our master bedroom entirely for remodeling that's underway right now...we've only lived there a year and a half and it was like "where did this all come from?! Did we actually pay movers to move this here?!". Granted, we had a newborn when we bought the house and definitely didn't prioritize the master bedroom at the time!
