Re: All Trimester Check-in August 3rd

  • <ul><li>How far along/EDD? 37+3 / Aug 21</li><li>How are you feeling this week? Tired... Mostly good though.  Just little light nesting things to keep me occupied, as well as hoping DH will get the cradle assembled sooner, rather than later.</li><li>Rants/Raves? Questions? Rave: We got our family pictures taken Saturday!  Omg, so happy we got that done.  What a special little moment in time to capture, before we become a family of four.  Plus I didn't get maternity pics last time, so this will be extra special for me.  The IF in me is very aware, I may never get to be pregnant again. 😞 Rant: my leave is still messed up, which could totally jeopardize my STD/mat leave, and all our benefits including my health insurance. 😬 T&P are appreciated that it all gets straightened out ASAP.</li><li>Any upcoming appointments? Wednesday position check / scan.  Also got the message I'm GBS negative!  Yay</li><li>GTKY: What is your favorite thing about where you live? (Town / home itself)  I love our backyard.  I wish it had a deck and better stair access so we could enjoy it more, but the view out my kitchen window is just so cute.</li></ul>

  • Hi PAIFers, I am so early but wanted to intro myself. Like with my last pregnancy, I'm doing my best to enjoy the process and not be too anxious in between appointments (famous last words, right?)
    • How far along/EDD? 5+3, 4/3
    • How are you feeling this week? I've been pretty tired and crampy but this morning the nausea hit like a ton of bricks. I made the mistake of emptying DS' diaper pail which resulted in a quick sprint to the bathroom.
    • Rants/Raves? Questions? With my last pregnancy I hardly worked out at all - maybe a walk here and there. Now we have a Peloton and I was in a really good routine before this transfer. I am wondering what everyone's workout regimes have been. I don't want to push myself too hard but also don't want to not use it. Thoughts?
    • Any upcoming appointments? Just a short eternity until my first ultrasound on 8/18.
    • GTKY: What is your favorite thing about where you live? (Town / home itself) Gosh, everything? I am in Minneapolis and we have beautiful lakes in the city with really nice walking trails and then our cabin is a couple hours north -- so I guess the lakes. and the seasons. and the people. see, everything!

  • @madasm0530 Welcome, and Congratulations!  I have some workout from my online birth prep class, as well as links to a couple mamastrong ones recommended to me, but I am the wrong person to ask, bc I have been majorly slacking with both. Lol

    @laurad75  Squeee!!!!

    Congratulations!!!  So so happy to see you here!  Will just be over here holding my breath with you till Thursday.  ❤️❤️❤️ I'm sorry YH is not much help for the time being.  Mine was kind of like that too in the beginning - who am I kidding, pretty much the entire pregnancy. Lol it's so much harder for them to connect, like he is very much, he'll believe it when he sees it, meanwhile WE are the ones who are experiencing and feeling everything inside and out. (((Hugs))) keeping everything crossed for a beautiful H+H9mos and smooth sailing! 🎉🎉🎉

    • How far along/EDD? 9w2d due 3/6/2020
    • How are you feeling this week? Good! Other than fatigue, I haven’t had any nausea since I hit 8 weeks. I was very nervous about this at first but I should be thankful I’m not dry heaving every time I brush my teeth. I changed my vitamins at 8 weeks, not sure if this contributing to the absence of it.
    • Rants/Raves? Questions? None!
    • Any upcoming appointments? A ultrasound Friday! Last ultrasound was so unclear and it made me nervous so they are going to do another with another machine. They did hear the heartbeat at the last one but I want to SEE the healthy baby.
    • GTKY: What is your favorite thing about where you live? (Town / home itself) my home itself is cozy and is full of touches that speak to us! The town I live in.... well, we haven’t been here long and we find ourselves going back to our hometown often. It’s quiet, but not too quiet!
    [Deleted User]laurelew31magnolia
  • @cashewchicken So exciting!!!  And that is a great way to think about it.  I don't know what we have in store with our remaining embies, but I think even if we don't have another THB in our story, if I think of it that way, I can be happy and relieved to close a chapter in that sense (and not think about it like closing the door on <i>motherhood</i>, which of course, will never end! ❤️). You are such a rockstar, and I'm so glad we've gotten to walk this part of the IF journey together.

    @Kimbrlyg814 Ah! GL Friday! So glad they are able to get you in and scanned with a better machine. 👍👍
    Kimbrlyg814laurad75laurelew31magnolia
  • @BusinessWife thank you!! So much excitement on your end! You’re so close! ❤️ I can imagine that knowing this may be the last one is challenging to think about. Hang in there and focus on the present moment ❤️❤️

    • How far along/EDD? 9w4d, EDD 3/4/2021
    • How are you feeling this week? Anxiously awaiting my first OB appointment next week.
    • Rants/Raves? Questions? Wed, Aug 5 will officially be the last day of my PIO shots and estrogen!!  Also we loved the daycare that we toured last week and put down a deposit to hold a place for our LO for this time next year on the spot.
    • Any upcoming appointments? OB appt Tues, Aug 11.
    • GTKY: What is your favorite thing about where you live? (Town / home itself) I live in South Jersey just outside of Philadelphia.  The town I live in is small (~2 sq miles) and very walkable with a very quaint main street.  All of the kids walk to school.  I love everything about it so much.
    @BusinessWife I hope that you can get the maternity leave sorted out before your due date.  How stressful. :(

    @madasm0530 and @laurad75 Welcome!  I'm happy to see both of you over on this board. :)

    @cashewchicken Thinking of you tomorrow!  <3

    @Kimbrlyg814 So happy to hear they were able to accommodate you for another ultrasound this Friday.  Enjoy!

    @cashewchicken Thinking about you today! 

    @mtpbadger My little guy is constantly dancing on my bladder. I feel like I am constantly in the bathroom!

    @BusinessWife I’m sorry you are dealing with maternity leave stress. Hopefully you can get it figured out quickly. 

    Kimbrlyg81431magnolia[Deleted User]
  • @laurelew Almost done with PIO and estrogen!! It’s so nice not to be on all the meds. 

    @Kimbrlyg814 I’m glad you get to have another ultrasound! Hopefully you can see much better this time!

    @JWatt5 Welcome!  How did your first beta go yesterday?
    JWatt5[Deleted User]
  • First beta is in and she ain't good. 328.
    The nurse called and said youre pregnant with a positive blood test, do you know the start of your last period. I told her I'll double check and while I did that I told her I'd used the digi ovulation tests and when it said I peaked and based on that I should be 5 weeks today. She said she didnt think I was 5 weeks per this beta so we'll do a repeat tomorrow morning and see then get a dating ultrasound done. but when I told her my LMP she kinda went oh ok. So, beta hell for one. Wait until Friday morning to see if it's going up or going down. I'm pretty nervous now.

    I'll have to give my update in a bit. It's been a crazy week. 
    I just had to say I saw a notification that @lucyb1954 mentioned my name and I came to take a look. I literally have tears in my eyes seeing you on this post! I'm beyond excited for you girlie! Keeping everything crossed for you! (hugs)  <3

    JWatt5Kimbrlyg814lucyb1954[Deleted User]
  • @JWatt5 The wait between tests is the worst! Hopefully you just had a late implantation. I’ve got my fingers crossed for you, and will be thinking about you Friday. 
    • How far along/EDD? 35w1d
    • How are you feeling this week?Achy, tired, uncomfortable and overwhelmed. AND still not motivated to do a whole lot, which is bad. I'm running out of time! Also, baby is even more active (hard to believe) and I'm having to get up now two times during the night to go to the bathroom that's on top of the countless times I'm going throughout the day. And just contact kicks and jabs to my ribs and cervix. 
    • Rants/Raves? Questions? Rave - Contractors are finally here to work on the nursery and guest room remodeling.I'm so excited to get this going! ---- Rant - Contractors are finally here to work on the nursery and guest room remodeling. This means my upstairs looks like a freaking war zone!  I still need to declutter. And I have ppl walking in and out of my house. So I'm trying to stay completely away  from the 2nd floor. That I don't love at all. Stuff is adding up quickly (between the house and remodel) so we may need to cut back on what we were going to spend. 
    • Any upcoming appointments? Echo results tomorrow. OB and ultrasound on Aug. 11. I can't wait for the ultrasound! 
    • GTKY: What is your favorite thing about where you live? (Town / home itself) I do really like my kitchen. It was gutted and redone!
    @BusinessWife - thanks for starting this post! I didn't get maternity pics either. Not official ones. My SO did some at home pics but that was it. I'm hoping to do family pics when baby girl is about 2 months. 

    @madasm0530 - Welcome and congrats! I had a good workout routine before getting pregnant and then everything stop once I became pregnant (doctor didn't want me working out at all). And I haven't been able to get back into a routine the rest of the pregnancy. Question - How much do you love your Peleton? My SO wants one, I keep saying no. Lol.

    @laurad75 - Welcome and congrats!! 

    @cashewchicken - How are you and baby?? Hope all is well. 

    @Kimbrlyg814 - Yay for no nausea! It feels so good when you finally get to that point! lol

    @lauralew - Yay for no more PIO shots and estrogen!! lol

    @mtpbadger - I hate the 2 am dances on the bladder! 

    @JWatt5 - Welcome and congrats!!

  • @31magnolia i feel like i could be a commercial for it - i'm obsessed. and the app has everything - not just biking. we got ours about 4 months after DS was born so the timing was perfect!!

  • @madasm0530 - haha! good to know. I've had the app for about a year  or so. I would do the spin workouts on the bikes at my job. My SO would do their other cardio and strength workout.  I am just not sure if I want give in and buy an actual Peleton bike. BUT it doesn't seem like the pandemic is ending anytime soon and I'm not comfortable going into any type of gym, so.......

    madasm0530
  • @JWatt5 I'm so sorry to hear that you are in limbo currently.  Sending positive vibes your way for that number to at least double by tomorrow. <3

    @31magnolia You have me chuckling with your rave and your rant.  Contractors are such a necessary evil.  We've had some work done on our house since we purchased 3 years ago and are currently waiting for our contractor to come out and give us an estimate on the rest of the work we want done.  While we really like our contractor (great price and does a wonderful job) his time management skills are lacking.  If we succeed in getting him out here before my due date (March 2021!) I will be thrilled.  Best of luck with the work going on at your house.  You'll have to share some pictures once everything has been completed. :)

    JWatt5
  • @laurelew - It really is a catch 22! I want the work done, it's just after a week I'm over it and I want everyone out the house. I don't even think I can blame this on the pregnancy because I'm pretty sure I felt the same way when we got the master bedroom done last year. Lol.  And you have a lot of patience! I would go batty if I had to schedule my contractor 6 months out! haha.

    Awwww @31magnolia thank you girl! <3<3<3 I honestly did not think our DE transfer would work. After all the crap I've been through I just really didn't feel positively about it. It's still so scary, I'm 8wk2d today and have a scan tomorrow. But I'm guessing I probably won't feel like it's safe until I have baby in my arms and then there's another whole ball of wax to deal with with caring for a baby!

    How did everyone get through the nausea? I have B6 and Unisom and Seabands, but man, the nausea is much worse than I expected mostly because it's constant. I took Tuesday off of work because it was so bad. Blech!
    [Deleted User]
  • @lucyb1954 I've been suffering from the nausea/queasiness the past couple of weeks also (not to mention the food aversions).  Mine is also constant. :(  I've been doing the B6 and I like to think it helps a little but who can say.  Some days are better than others.  I just hit 10w today and some women report that the symptoms started to go away for them this week so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  For the most part I've just been trying my best to get through each day and make it through this phase.  I'm lucky in that I'm still working from home for now.  I can't imagine how I would be able to cope if I was going into an office every day.  Have you been throwing up too or just nauseous all day long?
    [Deleted User]
    • How far along/EDD? 19 weeks, so officially half way 
    • How are you feeling this week? Better actually- the fluids really seem to be helping, I’ve got the medication in a good routine. Exhausted and still queasy but at least I’m not vomiting 20 times a day. 
    • Rants/Raves? Questions? I did. not. throw. up. today. First time in 14 weeks. 
    • Any upcoming appointments? Cardiologist was today!  my first tri echo looks good. The shunting is about the same as my last (non pregnancy) echo, which is good. The tachycardia they monitored in the office for a bit, and we need to keep an eye on it, but he said if it stays where it is, he isn't concerned. He said to make sure I don't get behind on fluids because that can tick up the tachycardia. But all in all "Everything looks good, see you in six weeks for your second tri ECHO."
      I mean I'm still never doing this again, but I'm actually starting to have hope this will be okay.
    • GTKY: What is your favorite thing about where you live? (Town / home itself) I am in an extremely rural town of 600 people - I love the beauty here, but I also love the way you can really just sink into the community and be part of things 🥰🥰
    @jwatt5 hoping for a good result! My first number was similar - 271 at 4w 5d, so hoping for good news! 

    @mtpbadger I’ve been working on planning my maternity leave for three weeks- there is so much to it!!! 

    @BusinessWife Just don't do what a photography client of mine did - changed her mind right after she went into labor and ran into my studio in a panic. Fastest photo shoot of my life! 

    @madasm0530 Welcome and congrats!

    @laurad75 Welcome and congrats!

    @cashewchicken How are you?!

    @Kimbrlyg814 Omg. I feel you on that. 

    @lauralew That's an exciting milestone! If you are really struggling, talk to your doctor. I am 19 weeks and finally feeling human. 

    @JWatt5 Welcome and congrats!

    @[email protected] I love my kitchen too. When we looked at houses, it was what first sold me on this house. 

    @lucyb1954 Weekly iv fluids, Zofran, Phenergan, and unisom and B6. Talk to your OB - they'll usually start you off with zofran if you are ill.

  • Thanks everyone - my second beta came in at 467. Only went up 42% in 48 hours. But it went up. See what the nurse has to say tomorrow morning about the next step. 

    @the_road_to_oz - thanks for sharing that. I have a bit more Hope now that it’s gone up and not down. Not as well as I’d hoped but we’ll see what happens. 

    @ReesaAnne16 - that’s exciting!! I’ve been cramping since the day before I got my positive and I remember a ton of cramping with DS. So much so I thought there was no way an embryo was going to survive it.

  • @Kimbrlyg814 Great news!!!

    @ReesaAnne16 okay now I'm legit in tears.  So excited for you!!! Congratulations!!!! I can hardly wait till you get that call Monday! ❤️❤️❤️

    @ReesaAnne16 @lucyb1954 Welcome!!!!  TB won't let you edit a post past 24 hours anymore, so just remind us of your EDD once Monday's check-in is up, and we can add you both to the list!

    @JWatt5 This really is torture.  I will keep thinking all the positive thoughts for your little bub! ❤️

    @31magnolia  omg, having the house torn apart is so stressful, but it will be worth it!  DH is not working today (for once on a Saturday) so we are going through attic bins, clothes, donations etc so we can finally have some space to bring the baby things down.  I already feel like it's breaking me lol

  • 752 - went up 58% in 48 hours. Ultrasound Monday to check for ectopic. Really hoping it’s not but I know the numbers are low for how far it should be.

  • @JWatt5 hang in there girl. Prayers for you. I had an ectopic last year and my number doubled initially and then slowed down. But I’ve heard of women who’s numbers didn’t double but they went on to have healthy babies. Hoping for good news at Monday’s appointment!

  • @Kimbrlyg814 - these number speed up in the doubling department with each beta but still they are slow. I’m really hoping it’s not ectopic and has a chance. 
    @ReesaAnne16 - thank you
