    WooHoo for being first to the party!  I haven't checked in for a few weeks.  Here is me this morning at almost 30 weeks:

    image

    LO is doing well and I'm really feeling great.  I really have no complaints other than the fact that figuring out my maternity leave has been a real pain.  It will get sorted out though.  I'm also really looking forward to my baby shower this weekend!

    I still lurk all the time and I'm rooting for all the TTGPers!!

    Hi Ladies!!!

    Not much to report. I had my u/s last week with my OB. Everything was great. Strong HR of 170, measuring 3 days ahead. Baby was super active and wasn't interested in sitting still for the u/s tech. I think she was annoyed - but I just laughed! That's clearly my child!

    M/S has seemed to subside itself this week - (yay!) last week it was nasty! I have my first first actual prenatal check up with my OB this Friday. Other than that I'm just chugging along.

    I'll start posting bump pics next week - I really don't have much to show at this point! Can't wait to see the rest of the updates!

    Always rooting for TTGP! Miss you girls like crazy!

    Yay, I'm early today!

    So far, so good, I'll be 14 weeks tomorrow.  My morning/all day sickness is starting to get much better, and I've even got a bit more energy through the day, by evening though, I'm exhausted, and usually in bed by 9pm.

    Had my routine monthly checkup last week, they used to doppler to hear the baby's heart beat, and it was the best sound ever!  Took the nurse only a minute to find it, and the heart rate was 160.  I did find out my next u/s will be at 20 weeks, which is june 13, where the do the a/s and we get to see what we are having.

    As always, routing for you ladies, and always lurking here, and will be back to read everyone's updates!

    Sickness, I am getting about a good 3 day stretch of feeling decently good.  round ligament pain has been in full force the last 2 weeks! 

    Had a doctor's appt last Friday, HR was 150/151 bmp, everything was a-ok.  Just waiting for my appt for my u/s, impatiently so!

    I've forgotten to play the last few weeks.  Charlie is 3.5 months - I absolutely cannot believe it. He is so interactive now, cooing and talking to us, smiling at things, grabbing for toys, etc. 

    I think he's starting to teethe though, which is not great because he goes through phases where he thinks it's ok to bite down (hard) while nursing Indifferent   Last night was probably the worst "teething" night he's had - screaming, chewing on anything you put in his mouth.

    This is Charlie after church on Sunday... he was hungry and sleepy, so what does mommy do?  Take a picture, of course!

    Hi!  My appointment last week went well, but I've been referred to a MFM to check on the babies (conjoinedness & mo/mo).  But Sunday night & yesterday I was having very sharp pains on my right side, so they wanted me to get checked out (as if my weekly appointments weren't enough).  They couldn't pinpoint the pain, but did an ultrasound and baby A had done a flip - they don't think they are conjoined!  And.. And... he thinks there is a membrane between the two!  They may have their own sacs!  So, instead of them being mo/mo (very high risk), they are mono/di - which is a lot safter.  Although, now we have to worry about the chance of TTTS, which based on the size differences of the babies, is a good possibilty. 

    My MFM appt is tomorrow, and he said they would have a lot better equipment and should be able to give me answers tomorrow.  Yay!

    Yesterday, Baby A's heart rate was at 177. Baby B was 115.. so I'm still a little worried about my fighter. 

    Can't wait to see the other updates!

    Good morning ladies! Love those puppies :-)

     I am 33 weeks and had a growth ultrasound this past week. They said his head his measuring bigger than his body. Hopefully that doesn't give me too much trouble when it comes time to deliver! Heartburn has hit me like crazy and I am very tired! 

    Here is a 3D pic from almost 32 weeks:

    Good morning ladies!

    Not too much going on here.  My next appt isn't for another two weeks so we're just chugging along.  I'm feeling consistent movement now (finally) which is nice. I have another anterior placenta so it took a while.  Still haven't discussed names and I think we're both in denial that we only have 4 months left (give or take) as a family of three.

    Here is my bump this morning. Don't mind the little photobomber - munchkin was up earlier than usual this morning and hanging out while we got ready for work:

    Still rooting for all the TTGP ladies!  Now it's time to go back and read some updates.

    Good morning everybody!  Benjamin is 8 days old today.  Things started off on a decent foot with BFing, but in the last few days things have gone downhill and I am really struggling.  I have decided that the easiest part of having a child for me is labor and delivery.  Pregnancy and postpartum can suck it.  Any T&P that we get the nursing thing sorted out would be greatly appreciated, as it is an extremely important thing to me and I will be extremely disappointed if, after a successful 15 month nursing relationship with DS2, I can't get this to work.

    I had the same problem....my milk never really came in.  On average I would only get 1 oz a daySad  I finally threw the towel in yesterday and will just FF her from now on.

    Hi everyone! Libby will be 13 weeks old on Thursday and is doing so well! Our biggest problem for the past few weeks has been getting her to take bottles of breast milk. She's improved drastically and drank 3 bottles yesterday with no problem at all while I worked for the first time. She still hates tummy time with a passion, but has managed to roll over a few times to get out of it.

    ETA: Finally got tinypic to work, here's a pic of her stretching:

      Many T&Ps that things will start going smoothly soon

     

    AFM: not much is going on.  I feel like I'm in the doldrums of pregnancy.  I don't feel pregnant (besides for exhaustion), I don't look pregnant, every day is SUPER long (due to exhaustion), and I don't have another OB appointment for 2 more weeks, and every week feels like it's about a month long!

    I do have a maternity ward tour of hospital #2 today.  I thought I had picked my OB (#2), but I REALLY liked the hospital tour for #1, so now I'm wavering.  Today's tour should help me make up my mind.

     

    As always, lurking and cheering for TTGP gals!

    Hey there ladies!!! Haven't checked in for a few weeks, but all is well over here in this baby camp. My little Mr. Wiggles in on the move with turbo boosters strapped to his feet. He took his first steps on 4/19, and now he is stalking through the house like it is his job! Crazy!!! So we are on full patrol all the time. :)

    The pup and the kid became partners in crime over this past weekend tho. I dropped a container of puffs, but the lid stayed on. After a few minutes I hear a ruckus and go over to find these two feasting on poured out puffs all over the floor. Taylor had got the top off and him and the pup were just having a hay day under the table. Too cute!! Good thing I was vacuuming!! Here they are in the midst of the crime....HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Today I hit my second goal milestone... 28 weeks.  Survival rate jumps to 90% I believe.  (I honestly can't remember.  They gave me a lot of information that day and that was more than half my pregnancy ago.)  Next goal is 32 weeks.  So far there has been nothing to worry about; although I did get concerned yesterday at the growth scan when we found out that E hasn't grown as much in the last four weeks as W has.  He's still on track but she went from being a day a head to about a week behind.  Their discordance is only 8% and I guess the docs don't worry until 18-20%.

    I haven't dropped in for a while, life's been amazingly crazy since B arrived :)  To be expected, of course. 

    B's 7 months now (wow, how time flies!) Crawling, standing, even a bit of side-step walking while hanging on to things...loves to say "mama" a million times a day now, although I'm sure he still has no clue exactly what it means, lol...

    One of my favorite pics (first time eating apples).  He loves them, but that first mouthful was a bit of a surprise!

    Below is a pic of my baby girl who is 11 months old!! She is amazing - so funny and happy. We have her in swim lessons and she LOVES it! She just started her version of crawling and has started to clap and is always jabbering. She has also cut two of her one-year molars already!

     I am planning her birthday party around a puppy theme. She just loves dogs and squeals at our all the time! Here is a photo of her on a walk this weekend.

    Here's my little blue eyed boy at 15 weeks :) We got a little excited because it was 70 degrees in VT for the first time in a bizzilion years. He's cooing all the time and starting to learn how to raise his voice which is pretty entertaining.

    We fed his his first cereal last night and he seemed to like it, he wasn't sure about it at first but he caught on quickly and then demanded more, lol. He's been sleeping 11-12 hours a night with only one wake up in between, my husband and I are getting very spolied ;)

    Hi Ladies!!!

    Not much to report. I had my u/s last week with my OB. Everything was great. Strong HR of 170, measuring 3 days ahead. Baby was super active and wasn't interested in sitting still for the u/s tech. I think she was annoyed - but I just laughed! That's clearly my child!

    M/S has seemed to subside itself this week - (yay!) last week it was nasty! I have my first first actual prenatal check up with my OB this Friday. Other than that I'm just chugging along.

    I'll start posting bump pics next week - I really don't have much to show at this point! Can't wait to see the rest of the updates!

    Always rooting for TTGP! Miss you girls like crazy!

    Hi!  My appointment last week went well, but I've been referred to a MFM to check on the babies (conjoinedness & mo/mo).  But Sunday night & yesterday I was having very sharp pains on my right side, so they wanted me to get checked out (as if my weekly appointments weren't enough).  They couldn't pinpoint the pain, but did an ultrasound and baby A had done a flip - they don't think they are conjoined!  And.. And... he thinks there is a membrane between the two!  They may have their own sacs!  So, instead of them being mo/mo (very high risk), they are mono/di - which is a lot safter.  Although, now we have to worry about the chance of TTTS, which based on the size differences of the babies, is a good possibilty. 

    My MFM appt is tomorrow, and he said they would have a lot better equipment and should be able to give me answers tomorrow.  Yay!

    Yesterday, Baby A's heart rate was at 177. Baby B was 115.. so I'm still a little worried about my fighter. 

    Can't wait to see the other updates! 

    Ive been following your story. So glad to hear things are getting better each day :) Praying for your fighter.

    Hi everyone! :)

    It's been awhile since I've checked in, so I thought I'd stop by and say hello! This will have to be a P&R for now, but I'll try and get back here tonight to catch all the updates! :)

    Jonah just turned 20 weeks old on Friday - he will be 5 months old on May 7th. Time is FLYING. We have an amazing sleeper on our hands. Since the beginning of April he has been sleeping through the night. He goes down around 7:30 and sleeps straight through until 5:00 or 5:30 when we have to get him up and ready to leave for the day.

    He is changing and growing every day. It's unreal. He has found his feet, and he is starting to really reach for things, too. He LOVES cereal :) We had some pictures taken of him this past weekend, here are a few (sorry if they are huge - my computer at school does not let me resize for some strange reason!):

    Hi there TTGP! It's been a little while. James is almost 7 weeks. He is lifting his head well, cooing, and smiling.  Right on track! We are working on crib sleep, and he is currently in his crib for his morning nap.  Motherhood is for sure an adjustment, but getting easier every day!

    We've decided to use birth control for awhile until we decide what we want to do. I'm ready for #2 ASAP but finances would be tight, so H prefers to wait awhile.  It will be weird to be on birth control since since little pumpkin took us 4 years!

    Here are some pics for ya:

    Hello TTGP!  I don't get to lurk as much as I'd like but I usually stop in on Fridays since you ladies tend to have the best FFFC posts ;)

    I'm 35/35 on Thursday.  Trying to get some projects done around the house and finish organizing the baby's room.  Still hoping this DD isn't breech so that we can go for a VBAC.  I don't have a lot of time to be down with 2 older DDs around and school will already be out for the summer.

    Here's a pic from my maternity session on Friday!

    22 weeks tomorrow but not much to report :)  I have another cervical check on Thursday so I'll get to see my little Sammy again!  I can't wait.  She has been getting a lot more active lately and feels like she's doing gymnastics in there.  It's such a great feeling!!  Here's my Bump pic from last week:

    Good Morning, Everybody!

    This is my first Grad Check In post. This board helped me so much in 2011 while TTC #1. Now I'm back to TFAS. 

    Here's my little one. She's 11 months old and is the most precious little baby ever (of course, I'm biased :--))!

    Have a great day!

    18 weeks today.  We had the a/s scan this morning and everything looked great.  The tech did a fantastic job of explaining everything.  It was cool to see the chambers of the heart and the different parts of the brain.  

    And we found out it's a GIRL!   Yeah!!

    My sleep is getting better, and by that I mean I have some 2 hour stretches of sleep where before it was every hour to hour and a half I was up.

    I'm still in regular clothes, although I'm starting to mix in some maternity clothes that were lent to me.  Only because they are cute and actually make me look like I have a bump.  Otherwise I'm still in that in between stage.

    Now I'm going to read everyone's updates and oogle pictures.

    Whimmy! Where have you been??? Jessuh, I love J's facial expressions. 

    C is looking more like a little boy than a baby, which makes me sad. Here he is playing, and refusing to look at me for a picture. He's started cruising on furniture and with his sit n' stand walking toy thingy. Freaks me out. 

    Bean is 21+ weeks and a little girl. Kind of fun to have one of each. Names haven't been decided yet. C was named about 20 minutes before he was born, so I imagine we'll wait awhile with this one too, though we have some ideas.  

    ALWAYS always rooting for my loves.

    In hiding. :)

    But I'm back now.

    I'm going to post and then update after I go through this thread.

    I am 9 weeks today! We had our first ultrasound yesterday and it was amazing! Baby is healthy and has a strong heart beat at 160 BPM. I started laughing at one point and baby started waving at us with those tiny little arms. It was unbelievable. DH and I are so in love. Here's a pic of our little one.
