  • How far along are you? What size fruit is your baby this week?

    I am 22 weeks 5 days--a papaya becoming a grapefruit I guess.

    Do you have any upcoming appointments or milestones?

    We have a cervical check and growth ultrasound a week from today.  And we are counting down now to viability.  I swear, this upcoming week and last week have been almost the longest of my life.  I know v-day isn't magic, but since I worry constantly that I am going into labor I feel like I need to be able to think that even if I am going into labor, that it is not necessarily all over--that there is at least a chance for the baby.  (I even asked my OB at our last appointment whether the nicu at the hospital I will be delivering at takes 23 weekers and she said it depends, but yes some of the specialists at the hospital have started referring to viability as being at 23 weeks and a few days rather than 24 weeks.  I'll take any little hope I can get!)

    QOTW: Have you had any "pregnant brain" moments?

    I have them constantly.  Last night I was ordering a pizza and we wanted pepperoni, green pepper, and onion on one half and pineapple, black olive, and extra cheese on the other.  When I ordered it apparently I said "pineapple" instead of "pepperoni", so the person thought I wanted pineapple on the whole pizza.  I didn't realize I'd said that so I was thinking "What--are you not listening to me?"  And then I realized oh, I totally just told you that didn't I?

    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week?

    Just the count down mostly.  And we did buy our first baby item last week.  There was a good sale on the pack n play we wanted and our cheapness got the best of us.  It makes me extra nervous thinking we are jinxing something, but so far so good (knock on wood).

    BFP #1 9/21/11. EDD 6/4/12.  Twins discovered at 8 weeks. Twin B lost at 14 weeks due to megacystis.  Alice Joe born and lost 1/5/12 at 18.5 weeks due to pre-term labor.

    BFP #2 7/11/12.  EDD 3/23/13.  Ada Alice born 3/20/13.

  • How far along are you? What size fruit is your baby this week?

    I'm not exactly sure... based on my last period I'm saying about 6 weeks, but we're waiting for a due date from our Dr.  I think that makes me some kind of seed...

    Do you have any upcoming appointments or milestones?

    Our first appointment is Tuesday.  I'm super nervous that this is going to be a dream.  That I'm going to go and, despite my 7 BFPs, they're going to tell me I'm not pregnant.  This seems too good to be true.  At that appointment I think she's just going to check my betas and bp and weight and refer me to the high risk dr. again.  Looking forward to that appointment.  He's one of the top 5 in the COUNTRY and he's amazing at what he does.  It gives me a lot of comfort when we meet with him.

    QOTW: Have you had any "pregnant brain" moments?

    Not too bad.  There's been a couple of times where I tell DH the same thing 3 or 4 times, but I'm chalking that up to exhaustion.

    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week?

    The range of emotions that I have about this pregnancy are so different from our first.  Mostly I'm excited, but nervous and guilty definitely come in at a close second and third.  I'm not guilty about being pregnant again.  We have always thought of this baby as a sibling to baby Gary.  I feel guilty that I feel so disconnected to this pregnancy.  I know it's just how I'm coping with the joy of a new baby and the grief for our first, but I can't help but feel like I'm cheating this LO the love they deserve.

    I am 25 weeks 5 days today and I am a head of cauliflower :)

    Do you have any upcoming appointments or milestones?

    We just passed the actual date milestone of finding out that Avery had skeletal dysplasia and obviously "first" holidays without her have been tough.

    QOTW: Have you had any "pregnant brain" moments?

    I forgot my phone number the other day.  I could not for the life of me think of the first three numbers (which are all the same number!!)   Who does that?!

    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week?

    I've been in a pretty good place this week.  I thought Thanksgiving would be much harder than it was, but it turned out to be a pretty enjoyable day in the end.

    Half baked today! Length of a banana.

    Do you have any upcoming appointments or milestones?

    Another sono in 2 weeks, looking forward to seeing our baby girl again! No big milestones coming up.

    QOTW: Have you had any "pregnant brain" moments?

    Almost every day when I walk into the office I can't remember if I locked the car or not and  have to go back and check. It has never been unlocked.

    Open Topic. What is on your mind this week?

    I wish Patricia could be here for her first Thanksgiving and I am sad to decorate the house without her watching. 



      Our Angel Patricia born sleeping 3/30/12 at 31 weeks
    Our Fighter Anna born early 1/8/13 at 26 weeks
    Hoping to bring home #3 due 9/9/15
