    Hi all!  Good luck to everyone cycling and hugs to those who need them.

    The nursery is ready to go and we've done our labor and breastfeeding prep, so I'm just rolling along on the crazy 3rd Tri hormone train with two months left until my EDD. 

    Here's a recent bump photo:

    We both saw and heard our baby's heart beat this week, so that was exciting and amazing :)  I go back to my RE for a third scan next Tuesday, and there's a chance they could start talking about releasing me at that point.  Other than that, just chugging along, with morning sickness and fatigue in full-swing!

    I don't feel very pregnant right now, can't really feel the baby move yet (occasional flutters that might be the baby), all my m/s and other symptoms are gone.  I am happy our a/s is next week, so I can see the baby again and hopefully find out the sex of out baby.

    Congrats to all the new BFP's and good luck to those cycling.  I am always lurking and cheering you on from the sidelines.

    I haven't posted here in awhile, I hope someone remembers me! No bump pic, maybe next week I'll finally brave it. I've really popped out there in the last two weeks! We went on our "baby moon" last week, we were in the Florida sunshine for a full week. It was very relaxing. We went to a Tigers spring training game and caught a foul ball for our little nugget, it was the highlight of our trip, lol. I had a repeat u/s yesterday to check out her little heart again, we're waiting to hear results. We are praying everything is just fine. Oh, and I made them double check that she was still a she, and she is :)  No other news really, I'm still having trouble believing we are really having a baby and I'm really this far along, it all seems so surreal. Good luck to anyone who can use some, I'm always lurking here and thinking of all of you!

    Hi ladies!!  Best of luck to all of you cycling and ((HUGS)) to those that need them!!  katib, thanks for taking over the Grad check in.  I hope it brings you lots of luck!

    I had my first weekly NST, ultrasound and OB appointment yesterday!  It is hard to believe they are here!  Baby is looking great!  She is measuring large per my last growth scan.  But, my OB is really happy with that.  Especially since we are at high risk for growth restrictions.  I'll have another growth scan around the begining of April.  Until then, I will keep having the NSTs, ultrasounds and OB appointments every week!

    I feel like such a slacker.  Our nursery still needs a lot of work.  Hopefully we can get it together in the next couple of weeks so I can share a picture!  I also need to get on the ball and upload a bump picture! 

    We are doing a 3D/4D ultrasound on Saturay.  I will try to upload one of those next week!!

    Hi ladies!  I'm still doing great and will be 19 weeks tomorrow.  We have our a/s 2 weeks from tomorrow and I'm still determined to stay Team Green.  I'm feeling movement more often, which is the best, and I'm growing overnight, it seems.  My baby showers are even in the works, which is hard to believe!

    Hi Everyone!  Things are going well here.  I have my GD in a few weeks and then my appointments will start going from every month to every 2 weeks.  I can't believe I am almost at that point already.  The little guy has been more and more active which I am loving every minute of.  We are slowly working on the nursery but we have ordered all the furniture and the place where we bought it is holding it for us until we are ready for it.

    I hope everyone is doing well.  I am always lurking to see how everyone is doing.  Big hugs to those who need it.

    Hi 3t ladies! 

    Things are chugging along here. I had a rough day yesterday because we had to put our 17yo dog, Nala down. It was extremely hard. She was our first and last pup. I miss her so much.

    Other than that things are good. I am starting knitting and sewing for the baby. Dh actually felt her kick last night which was amazing.

    Hi 3T, wishing everyone lots of luck and hugs for those who need them.

    Well Maddie decided to come early. She was born at 31w6ds due to pre eclampsia via c/s. I went into the hosptial on Tuesday for bp of 160/103..something like that and pulling a +2/3 on the protein stick. Results Thursday for protein were 2600 and by Friday morning the next one was 3800, so that coupled with high blood pressure still and Maddie kept having heart decels, they decided she was better out of my belly. So she was born at 1:19 pm Friday March 9th weighing 3lb 7oz and 17 inches long :)

    Here is my precious girl who will be in nicu til at least 35 weeks and then its up to her when she comes home :)

    Hi all! Good luck to all those cycling, hugs to those that need it and good luck to those on a break.  I lurk all the time just to keep up on everything.

    Well I'm 9 wks now and the morning sickness isn't as bad as it had been.  I'm exhausted though this week. I go in next week for my first official monthly OB appointment and I'm hoping they are able to find the heartbeat on a doppler.  I'm debating on if I want to buy one for home or not.  Not much else to report.

    Hi Ladies!

    Nothing much to update here.  My last ultrasound was at 8 weeks and I'm a little over 10 weeks now.  I opted to do a NT screening at about 12 weeks (mostly so I can get another ulstrasound).  I'm very anxious/excited for that since we haven't heard the heartbeat yet, so just want to make sure things are going well in there.  Otherwise I feel great!

    Madalinn, I'm so sorry to hear about your dog.

    I'm 21 weeks five days. Our level II u/s went great and we found out she's a girl! I have just recently started to feel her move. I feel pretty good, mostly some round ligament pain and heartburn. We also found out DH's brother and his wife are expecting. They'd been trying for a little over a year, and were just about to see an RE. I am so happy for them that they did not end up having to go through this.

    Good luck to all th ladies cycling out there!

    Late to the party, but you all look/sound great!

    I'm 9w1d and I find that so hard to believe! We had our third u/s tuesday and saw the baby moving all around. Pics are in my blog.

    I go back next Friday for my last appointment and then will be released to my OB. I'm having a hard time letting go of my RE!

    Hi ladies! I haven't been around much lately (it's my busy season), but we had our a/s today. We are officially Team Blue!

    Everything looked great, except for a "bright spot" on his heart, but the MFM isn't worried at all. He said it can be a marker for downs, but my b/w was fantastic. He's going to keep an eye on it, but he said over and over that it's nothing to worry about.

    Unfortunately, my heart has been acting up, so I have a consult with a cardiologist next week. I've been having palpitations for no apparent reason, and my OB wants to be extra cautious. I'll probably end up with a holter monitor for a few days to figure it out. Hopefully that ends up being nothing, too. 

     It's so great to see so many new grads on here! GL to everyone cycling, and (((HUGS))) to those who need them.

    Hi ladies,

     It's been a while since I last posted. I've had an eventful couple weeks. On February 25, I went for my high-risk appt. They took my blood pressure and it was really high. They had me do a 24 hour urine collection and some blood work over the weekend. That Monday, I worked all day, but got a call from my MFM, directing me to get into L&D right away.

    I ended being in the hospital for 8 days with severe pre-eclampsia. For some reason, unknown to all, including me, I seem to have recovered from it and have since been sent home on strict bedrest. I now go to the doctor's 3x per week and have to pass a battery of tests before I am allowed to leave again. So far, my numbers are good and I've been out a week now.

    We are hoping that I will get to carry the baby till 39 weeks. I will be induced at that point, due to gestational diabetes. The bad news is that all of this bedrest is taking a toll on my blood sugar and I am now on insulin twice a day. The amount of insulin I'm taking seems to be increasing by the day in an attempt to control my sugars in lieu of getting any exercise.

     My continued thoughts and prayers to all that are cycling. I'm rooting for you all and I'm always overjoyed to see the BFP messages.

     Here's a pic of me from yesterday, when I snuck off bedrest. Also, below is a pic of the nursery.

I have had an uneventful pregnancy so far, I have been feeling great, and luckily had no morning sickness or anything! It's so wonderful to see so many more new preggos on here!
