Any appointments? Questions?:
Any specific AMA concerns?
GTKY: Do you plan to announce your pregnancy on social media? If so, when?
Due date/W+D: 8/2 10+5
Age? 34 (35 in April)
FTM/STM/TTM, etc?: STM
Any appointments? Questions?: Next Tuesday the 15th I have a regular check up and will have my NIPT drawn
Rants/Raves?: I purchased a doppler last time around and I have been able to find the HB at home a few times now in the past week. I'm also feeling a little less nauseated during the day, which is great. It is still hitting me at night but I'll take any improvement.
Any specific AMA concerns? I'm nervous about the NIPT results, but I was before I was considered AMA as well.
GTKY: Do you plan to announce your pregnancy on social media? If so, when? Yes, debating sometime after the NIPT results come in or possibly after the anatomy scan. We did after NIPT last time.
Due date/W+D: 8/15 9 weeks
FTM/STM/TTM, etc?: 4th
Any appointments? Questions?: nope not till the end of the month
Rants/Raves?: dry heaving reared its ugly head last night... DH has been such a doll picking up my slack.
Any specific AMA concerns? I struggled with pelvic floor weakness after my last. so I'm trying to stay on top of my exercieses so that its not so bad this time.... I guess not specifically AMA but peeing yourself all the time sucks...
GTKY: Do you plan to announce your pregnancy on social media? If so, when? Probably not. As a IF vet I'm super sensitive to how those announcements trigger folks... that plus I don't post a ton on social media...
Due date/W+D: Aug 3 (I'm pretty sure this will be a July baby, I tend to go early) 10w4d
FTM/STM/TTM, etc?: TTM
Any appointments? Questions?: Appointment tomorrow. For this pregnancy I switched OB's (something I've been planning to do). The appointment I have for tomorrow is for a complete head to toe physical, plus a conversation about available testing and the option for progesterone shots (since we had issues with preterm contractions with my younger daughter).
Rants/Raves?: Gas!! OMG, the gas bubbles I get are horribly painful. I don't seem to have a particular trigger either, it just comes and goes. I'm talking folded over gas pains and of course once I make it to the bathroom, it's gone (except for at home, those people just have to deal with it ).
Any specific AMA concerns? No concerns at all.
GTKY: Do you plan to announce your pregnancy on social media? If so, when? We plan to, but we will probably wait until the anatomy scan.
Due date/W+D: 8/23 7w5d
FTM/STM/TTM, etc?: FTM
Any appointments? Questions?: Had another ultrasound today. Baby is on track with a heartbeat of 175. One more ultrasound next Wednesday
Rants/Raves?: Rant My RE said I was graduated from her today but Rave that when I said I didn’t want to go, she said I could come back for one more ultrasound next Wednesday
Any specific AMA concerns? Nope
GTKY: Do you plan to announce your pregnancy on social media? If so, when? Yeah. I can’t decide. I wanted to wait until I was 16 weeks. But I am a huge runDisney nerd and have always wanted to run a race in this cute idea I’ve had. The race in February is the only one that happens while I’ll be pregnant and I’d be 13 weeks.
Due date/W+D: August 13th // 9w2d
FTM/STM/TTM, etc?: Third-time mama!
Any appointments? Questions?: We had our first appointment on Tuesday. Baby looked great, measuring ahead & strong heartbeat. Next week I go back for NIPT bloodwork, next baby appointment is Feb 4th.
Rants/Raves?: I found out that I have complete placenta previa, which limits my activity... yesterday I found out that I can't do any kind of exercise except light stretching. No treadmill, no elliptical... So my rant is that I'm worried my weight's going to be out of control this pregnancy
Any specific AMA concerns?: Not any pertaining to being AMA, but the previa thing's got me a little nervous, I will admit. I made the mistake of Googling. Don't do that.
GTKY: Do you plan to announce your pregnancy on social media? If so, when?: We announced like, two days after we found out, because we are incapable of waiting.
Due date/W+D: August 30 ish 6w6d
Any appointments? Questions?: I had my confirmation of pregnancy appointment yesterday. We discussed testing
Rants/Raves?: Rant: I feel so much crummier this first tri than last time around! I know lots of ladies have it much worse and I shouldn't complain, but it's kicking my butt this week. Rave: My DH is also picking up major slack.
Any specific AMA concerns? Not really. Going to my appointment made it real that I am AMA.
GTKY: Do you plan to announce your pregnancy on social media? If so, when? I'm not sure yet. Last time it was just a very impulsive and not very creative announcement, so that's probably what will happen again.
Due date/W+D: Aug 16 / 8w 6d
Any appointments? Questions?: I’ve graduated to my OB so next week I have an intake phone call (I like that method to go over all the basics without having to trek over to the office), and then the week after that (1/22) I’ll go in for an US and hopefully NIPT draw
Rants/Raves?: I had a really rough week, with a 2-day migraine (and then 2-day migraine “hangover” ha) and nonstop vomiting. I caved and took more medicine than I would prefer to, but since I threw up so much of it I’m guessing not that much got to the baby.
Any specific AMA concerns? Not so far but I wonder if that will become more distinct when I start with the OB, since at the RE AMA is pretty standard so they don’t make a big deal about it
GTKY: Do you plan to announce your pregnancy on social media? If so, when? Nope.
Due date/W+D: 8/1 - 11 weeks!
Any appointments? Questions?: Next Tuesday OB and next Friday nuechal translucency screen. I found out I shouldn’t do NIPT as my results will almost certainly be skewed. Super bummed!
Rants/Raves?: got to give a plug to my Roomba I just got. I have not had to sweep or vacuum my main floor in 2 weeks!
Any specific AMA concerns? Oh just the normal “my odds are higher for this and that” stuff.
GTKY: Do you plan to announce your pregnancy on social media? If so, when? Ehh probably not. I know way too many mommas who have\are majorly suffering with infertility and since this is number 3 I want to be sensitive. Plus I’m also trying to put less personal info out there. However, I’m sure a bump pic or 2 will eventually get posted.
@hey_clever_girl - Oh nooooooo! I'm sorry you've been put on SUPER rest. I know you're one of *those* who love to stay fit and active If it makes you feel better, one of my friends - a TTM at 39 - had that with her last (born in October) and it cleared itself up at 35 weeks ... so there's hope! FX for you.
Due date/W+D: August 16th // 8w6d
Age?: 35 (36 next month)
FTM/STM/TTM, etc?: STM
Any appointments? Questions?: I go on Monday for my final appointment with my RE, hoping to see my little Survivor hanging in there ... then I "graduate" back to my OB (whom I saw last week, when I found out one of the two babies was no longer growing) and have my MaterniT21 test on the 30th. Was already warned my 16-wk appt - somewhere near my birthday - will be with MFM, but that if everything looks ok that should be my only experience with them. FX.
Rants/Raves?: I've developed some crazy kind of congestion in the last two days that only strikes at night, it's gotten so bad that I'm having apnea. Last night, I woke up 4-5 times, *gasping* for air. Not today, Satan! MAma needs her sleep!! (I'm holding off on taking the amoxicillin I was prescribed because while it's Class B, many of those Class B meds are no buneo in the first trimester ... better safe than sorry is my motto; I'm not dying ... yet.)
Any specific AMA concerns?: Not any pertaining to being AMA, just find it funny that the break is still at 35 and not closer to 42+, especially since NONE of my friends had any children before 30
GTKY: Do you plan to announce your pregnancy on social media? If so, when?: I'm a huge sports fan (especially football), so I'm thinking about doing a little announcement during the half-time at the Super Bowl. Either that or the following week at Valentine's Day - which is also the beginning of FebruKerry, the month-long celebration of me (Kerry)
Due date/W+D: August 31 / 6w + 5d
Age? 34, 35 at delivery
Any appointments? Questions?: I had one this week for dating since it was up in the air. Got to see little one's heartbeat!
Rants/Raves?: My morning sickness this go-round is at night instead of the mornings. Its way brutal with two young kids and a husband that travels.
Any specific AMA concerns?: This is not AMA specific, but I had GD last pregnancy and I really don't want to experience that again
GTKY: Do you plan to announce your pregnancy on social media? If so, when?: I don't know, but am leaning towards no. We are very happy with the baby, but I think I can announce without specifically saying it, as we plan to sell our house in the next few months.
@peachy0709 solidarity I also had GD last pregnancy! If I have it this time, once diagnoses start rolling in I’ll aim to start or contribute to a specific discussion thread/s for support bc that was a lifesaver for me last time. I’m not optimistic about avoiding it since the older you get the more likely it is, but you never know!
