Re: **3rd Tri Check In**

  • 1. Updates? I had my OB appointment on Tuesday.  Since I was still measuring small on the outside they had me go for an ultrasound yesterday.  Since the u/s was with a tech (not my doctor) I have to wait to hear back from my doctor today.  The tech doesn't really give away too much info, but she seemed to be doing well in there - kicking like a crazy woman!  The tech said she looks to be weighing 2 lbs 10 oz (give or take), but I am not sure if that is where she should be at 29/30 weeks (i have always measured about 1 week behind by due date).  

    Baby is currently in the breech position, but has plenty of time to move.  I asked for them to double check the sex, but baby wasn't cooperating for that, so I will just have to assume they were correct the first time!

    2. QOTW: Least and Favorite parts of your pregnancy. Least favorite part is the worry - throughout the pregnancy I have constantly worried that something will go wrong or has gone wrong, even though things have been pretty uneventful until now.  

    Favorite part is the kicks!  I love the time when I am alone and I feel her kick - it is a special time which the two of us share.

    1) having weekly NST's , everything looks perfect so far but found out baby flipped back to breech yesterday ugh. i know still time but not much!   def. getting nervous about this!

    2) least favorite:  this pregnancy has been  much more achey and painful.  my hips and back are out of control !   most favorite: being able to watch DS #1 get SO excited about his future brother.

  • 1) Updates: 37 week appointment went well. GBS negative, he's head down, BP is good. If he's still baking at 40 weeks I'll go in for NST scans 2x a week. I've been having a lot of BH lately that are messing with my head a bit and I "think" I may have lost part of my mucus plug this week but I'm really not sure

    2) QOTW: 

    Least favorite part of pregnancy: Probably the lack of sleep I've been getting throughout. Whether it's insomnia, or getting up because I have to pee all the time or my hips hurt and I need to change positions, I'm just not sleeping well. I guess it's practice for when he gets here, but really all I want is to sleep through the night again!

    Most favorite: Definitely the movement. I absolutely love it, even when he kicks a rib or moves into an uncomfortable position, I cherish every moment of it.

  • Updates-
    Last appointment went fairly well, his measurements went down which were a little odd but I'm writing it off that he shifted head & face down (hopefully), GBS was a negative, BP was a tad high so I'm watching that, he is VERY active and I'm dying to meet him.  I go back on Monday and I wish they'd u/s me so I could see him again.
    Least has got to be swelling.  It's in my face now and it's been awful in my legs and feet.  I kinda miss sleep too but that's just prep.
    Favorite has to be feeling him move all the time and listening to my DH talk to him.  Yesterday was the first day DH told him that he was tired of talking to him through my tummy. HA!  We're just ready!!!

    Me- 32, DH- 32- TTC for 4 Years

  • Update: not too much going on, I have my 30 week appt on Tues.

    Q: my least favorite part has been the lack of sleep and my moodiness..sure that one is related to the other but I have felt so much more b!tchy and emotional these past couple of weeks and I hate it! Favorite is def the movement like everyone is saying. It blows my mind that I have a living being growing inside of me. It's such a gift and I cherish every kick, punch and flip.

  • Could I be added please?  I'm due on 12/12 with twins.  We're Team Green, but they will either be B/B or G/G.

    Updates:  I'm 29 weeks (almost to 30 weeks, which has been one of my mental goals!)  I do not have gestational diabetes, although the glucose drink did send both babies into a frenzy of crazy movements all day -- even more movement than normal.

    I have another MFM appointment next week out of town, and I'll see if he wants to start seeing me more often than the 2-3 weeks we have been doing.  Hopefully my cervix is still staying steady and their growth discrepancy hasn't gotten any worse.  My OB said that their fluid levels looked good this week, although he doesn't take size measurements of the babies.

    QOTW: Least favorite part is all the stress and worry, especially with having higher risk mo-di twins.  I'm not sure I've really bonded with the babies because I've been so worried.  The physical demands of a twin pregnancy and all of the activity restrictions haven't been easy or fun, but I've made it this far! 
    As for the best part, I agree that feeling both of their movements has been really neat (and has helped my anxiety).  I feel like I've also gotten to enjoy the pregnancy more now that we are at a point that they could survive if born.
    Married 8/2008. IVF with PGD March 2013.
    3/22 ER: 25R, 20M, 15F. 9 genetically normal, and 3 survived to Day 5
    3/27 ET: transferred 1 embryo, beta 9dp5dt=163, 12dp5dt=639
    4/25 1st ultrasound at 7 weeks = identical twins with heartbeats?!!!
    PPROM at 31w, delivery at 32 weeks of two beautiful girls
  • Updates:  Had my 2nd BPP & NST of the week.  My fluid levels are still low but are holding steady and other then the low fluid, Baby girl passed the BPP with flying colors and also did exactly what she was supposed to do and more.  I go back Monday for another BPP & NST.  Twice weekly now.

    2. QOTW: Least and Favorite parts of your pregnancy:  Least favorite is the heartburn and hemorroids.  Also the sleeplessness.  My favorite has been, hands down feeling her moving and my husband rubbing my belly and telling her how much he loves her.  Melts my heart

  • (Sorry in advance for lack of paragraphs, dumb iPad). Updates: Monday we will have an u/s and put a c/s date on the calendar!!
