Re: ****PG & TTC Check In 8/6/2012****

  • 1. What week are you in? Week 32.  Any new aches or pains? *Everything* I have eaten in the last week has given me heartburn, except watermelon.

     

    2. Any milestones this week?  Don't think so.  I'm now on every-two-week appointments.

     

    3. When is your next appointment? Tomorrow morning.  Will anything special happen at that appointment?  Hopefully I can get a recommendation or prescription for something that will help with the heartburn!

     

    4. What are you looking forward to this week?  DH coming home on Friday, he's away for business this week.

     

    5. Monday confession? I am currently eating Doritos, which I know will give me heartburn, because I am tired of watermelon.

     

    6. tips for insomnia? just can't get back to sleep and getting up at 4 am isn't working very well.  Have you tried unisom?  This did the trick for me.  One tablet just before bed.  It was a life saver in first tri, when I had the insomnia from h*ll.  I still take it occasionally.

     

    7. Any pediatrician recs for the area of bothell/mill creek/woodinville?  n/a

     

    8. For STMs or moms close to delivery - when did you start feeling like you were too uncomfortable to get things done and really needed to take it easy?  I want to get a bunch of stuff finished before baby, and I want to give myself a realistic finish-by date and not feel like I have to accomplish something when I need to rest.  This was my question.

     

    9. Questions for next week?  What did you wear with your first LO/what are you planning to wear home from the hospital? Since I am sure I will be in pictures, I don't want to go home in my PJs and look like I just rolled out of bed, but I also want to be comfortable.

  • 1. What week are you in? Any new aches or pains?

     

    I think I'm in week 7 or 8. food aversions have hit big time.

     

    2. Any milestones this week?

     

    Should have a heartbeat by now. 

     

    3. When is your next appointment? Will anything special happen at that appointment?

     

    Next Wednesday. First ultrasound. Can't wait!

     

    4. What are you looking forward to this week?

     

    Getting some much needed exercise

     

    5. Monday confession?

     

    We drove all the way up to Issaquah for Costco gelato on Sunday. DH has had more cravings than me. Lol. 

     

    6. tips for insomnia? just can't get back to sleep and getting up at 4 am isn't working very well.

     

    I'm in the same boat. Nothing is helping. 

     

    7. Any pediatrician recs for the area of bothell/mill creek/woodinville? Nope. Sorry :(

     

    8. For STMs or moms close to delivery - when did you start feeling like you were too uncomfortable to get things done and really needed to take it easy?  I want to get a bunch of stuff finished before baby, and I want to give myself a realistic finish-by date and not feel like I have to accomplish something when I need to rest.

     

    I was put on bed rest a week before delivery. I felt ok, except for the swelling. Was still getting everything done. I want some time to rest before this LO, so I want to be ready around 36 weeks.

     

    9. Questions for next week?

     

    What is your nursery theme?

  • Hi!  I'm new to this board but would love to participate!  I am originally from Seattle, but just recently in the last month moved to Mt. Vernon.  We are loving it so much up here and having a little too much fun and we got a little surprise. 

    Pregnant Questions

     

    1. What week are you in? Any new aches or pains?

    Week 5. No symptoms at all other than a missed period.  Any other symptoms that could be pregnancy related I am easily blaming on my toddler. :)

    2. Any milestones this week?

    nope.

    3. When is your next appointment? Will anything special happen at that appointment?

    I have my first appt on 8/21. To me it kind of seems like a waste of an appt. Being that I am new to the area and it's too far for to drive to my old OB in Kirkland, I have to start out with a brand new doctor and they are making me do an intake with an RN first to confirm pregnancy and make sure I'm taking my vitamins.  Not sure why I need to do a whole appt for that just to turn around and schedule another appt a few weeks later, but oh well. I guess I'll see what happens at that appt.  Has anyone had any experience with Skagit Valley Hospital?  I'm brand new to this area and don't know what to expect.

    4. What are you looking forward to this week?

    Telling my in-laws about our little surprise.

    5. Monday confession?

    no confessions.

     

    6. tips for insomnia? just can't get back to sleep and getting up at 4 am isn't working very well.

     no tips on this one either. 

    7. Any pediatrician recs for the area of bothell/mill creek/woodinville?

     

    8. For STMs or moms close to delivery - when did you start feeling like you were too uncomfortable to get things done and really needed to take it easy?  I want to get a bunch of stuff finished before baby, and I want to give myself a realistic finish-by date and not feel like I have to accomplish something when I need to rest.

    For round 1 I never really got super uncomfortable and worked right up until my due date.  I was due Oct 4 and my last day of work was Sept 30.  It was actually really nice because I would have been going crazy sitting around at home waiting for the baby to come.

  • 1. What week are you in? Any new aches or pains? 20 - yes, deep burning pain that wakes me up in the middle of the night between my public area and my right leg. It hurts so badly at night and just hurts a little bit during the day.

     

    2. Any milestones this week? hopefully passing the glucose challenge test that I took today

     

    3. When is your next appointment? Will anything special happen at that appointment? Next Wed, we finally get our a/s and find out the gender!!

     

    4. What are you looking forward to this week? having the house to myself, now that my parents have left from their visit.

     

    5. Monday confession? I'm feeling overwhelmed with all their is to do now that I'm half way through the pregnancy.

     

    6. tips for insomnia? just can't get back to sleep and getting up at 4 am isn't working very well.  lavender eye pillow? that is all I can think of that is completely safe while preg.

     

    7. Any pediatrician recs for the area of bothell/mill creek/woodinville? n/a

    8. For STMs or moms close to delivery - when did you start feeling like you were too uncomfortable to get things done and really needed to take it easy?  I want to get a bunch of stuff finished before baby, and I want to give myself a realistic finish-by date and not feel like I have to accomplish something when I need to rest. n/a

     

    9. Questions for next week? Does anybody have experience with cats and baby gates? We're worried our cat won't be able to get to his litter because of the gate(s) on the stairs.

  • I know it's been ages since i've been on the board.  But I have news!

     I am in the two week wait during my second cycle of IVF.  I had two day 5, 4BB blasts transferred yesterday, and froze two more, 4BB and 4BC.  It's good to know we'll have a back up.  So, PUPO!

    I am looking forward to bedrest and feeling some symptoms.   I will know more by the end of next week.  

    I wish I could have a glass of wine.  

    Thoughts on managing twins and a preschooler? 

    After three years TTC, four IUI's plus 2 cancelled, MFI (morph, motility, count), maternal age (40 as of 5/12) & former endo, we're moving to IVF spring 2012 (good/avg AMH and FSH). We did beat the odds once, however. DD born after 2 years TTC with clomid and no monitoring at my age 35. Doctors are SHOCKED we were able to conceive. Here's hoping for another miracle.
  • New to the post, I am due in December with a baby boy!
  • For insomnia, you could try cds of guided relaxation.  I've been stunned at how well they work.  This one has four 20 minute pieces: http://www.amazon.com/Letting-Go-Stress-Steven-Halpern/dp/B00009N1WZ/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1344406654&sr=8-8&keywords=steve+halpern+relaxation


    Also, I recommend finishing things about four weeks before your due date.  Although there is something to be said about keeping busy in those last few weeks.

  • I've been kind of silent the past couple of weeks because I've been in limbo. We haven't had great ultrasounds and I'm about a week behind in growth. We have another ultrasound next Monday where we'll hopefully get good news. But it is more likely than not that this pregnancy is not progressing and I may miscarry at some point. I'll update next week when I know more.

    Changed clinics: February 2013

  • So sorry to hear KRoseToes - I wish I could reach out and give you a big hug - it is crushing to be in limbo.  I had bleeding at 5.5 weeks & 6.5 weeks (and a no heartbeat on the ultrasound)  then nothing till another ultrasound at 8.5 and still no heartbeat. Ended up with a d&c scheduled the next day to rule out molar pregnancy. (my betas were still rising)

    I hope you get positive news next week!
