  • @livingoffpbjs I bought maternity pants at 11 weeks and have resorted to mostly dresses now at 13 weeks. I have also been wondering why I'm so obviously showing when everyone says I shouldn't be yet. Just keep reminding yourself that everyone's body is different! I love it because DH is none the wiser and has started kissing my bloat belly at goodnight, no complaints here!

  • @carlyk414 I just asked my ob this question today! She said that there is no known risk of going through the full body scanner - that being said, it is radiation. She said when she was pregnant and traveling, she always opted for the metal detector one but I have her blessing to do the full body scan if it's way less time to go through the security line or something like that.

  • I'm 10 weeks 1 day. 

    Any appointments this week/last? How did it go?

    Yes Friday for ultrasound, genetic counselor and genetic screening. I'm nervous about getting the screening results (I'm 38 now, 39 when baby comes)

    Cravings? I wish. Nothing sounds good. 

    Rants/Raves? The bloat! So miserable. 

    Questions for FTM, STM+?
    I don't know which brand screening test I'll take yet but do they all take a week to get results? 

    GTKY: Do you have any pets? What is/are their name(s), species and breed(s). Share pictures if you want!  
    Yes my cute rescue pup Rico. He's a true mutt, did his DNA test and it was funny... chihuahua, lab, pit, Doberman and other unknown.

    How far along are you?  13 weeks

    Any appointments this week/last? How did it go? No appointments this week. Appointment at 12 weeks got results of chromosomal and carrier testing, all came back with no abnormalities. I just wanted to know to be prepared. SIL has Downs Syndrome and needed heart surgery within first few months so I wanted to be prepared in case that was likely.

    Cravings? No cravings, I've just found things to avoid (soups and baby carrots).

    Rants/Raves? I'm with everyone on the bloat, so frustrating. It was really bad around week 10, my pants all started to be too tight. I started eating a lot more fruit and veggies then the bloat reduced and my pants fit again. Really weird but I weighed 3lbs heavier at 10 weeks then I do now (thought I'd gained 6lbs but I'd only gained 3lbs).

    Questions for FTM, STM+? None

    GTKY: Do you have any pets? What is/are their name(s), species and breed(s). Share pictures if you want! :)  
    DH is allergic to everything with fur so no pets for us. I have two nephew puppies though that I get to cuddle with then change clothes and wash my hands, Squiggles and Rudy.

    @darkrose88 that stinks when you have to PIAC but didn't expect it. I had that happen at my first appointment, had to sit in the waiting room an additional 30 mins chugging water.

  • ***TW*** (x-post to Weekly Appt Thread)

    Had my follow-up today at 11 weeks 4 days.  Fetus is showing a cystic hygroma on the back of the neck.  DH has been quiet and I feel devastated and overwhelmed.  We waited 2 years for our BFP & just told our families this weekend.  We've been referred to the Level 3 in our area for a follow-up high-def U/S & consultation and are currently waiting on the genetic test results.  I should get a call from the Level 3 tomorrow to schedule that appointment.  I know I'll be classified as high risk at this point and am coming to terms with not delivering at the hospital we'd chosen and the probability of a cesarean.  I'm trying not to focus on it too much.  There are too many potential causes and too many potential outcomes for me to mentally process right now (from resolving itself on its own to fetal death).  I might lurk a bit more than usual the next few weeks until I find my center again.

  • @WildMagelet thinking of you  <3
  • How far along are you? Today I'm 11w 3D

    Any appointments this week/last? How did it go? I had the stomach flu this weekend and ended up in the ER due to dehydration. I got to hear my baby's HB for the first time! I'm much better now, thankfully. I was glad for the inadvertent check on the baby through. 

    Cravings? Not really, but food isn't quite right with me just yet after being sick

    Rants/Raves? I'm excited for my 12w ultrasound next week and to do the genetic/sex testing! 

    Questions for FTM, STM+? Is it odd that I'm not showing yet? I feel wider (lol) and I'm a size 14 to begin with.

    GTKY: Do you have any pets? Yessss! My fur babies! Tucker and Lola. Tucker is the smaller mut . He's the tan one and we rescued him 3 years ago. Lola is our big baby girl. She's a year old and quite the handful lol. She's a boxer/pit mix. Lola was starved and left at a truck stop with her brother. We took her and my brother took her brother ❤️

  • How far along are you? 11wks 6 days(just updated today from original EDD)

    Any appointments this week/last? How did it go? Had an appointment with my GP to follow up on initial blood tests and dating US. All seems good but I need to re test for possible Hypothyroidism

    Cravings? Nothing, but starting to feel hunger instead of nausea

    Rants/Raves? Kind of confused/frustrated deciding between a Dr and midwife. Only met with a midwife once and any time I called to get test results I wouldn't get a call back

    Questions for FTM, STM+? Did you worry or have an issues with your Dr or midwife being occupied with another mom whe

    GTKY: Do you have any pets? What is/are their name(s), species and breed(s). Yes two mischievous cats, a ginger and an all black one. They have very different personalities but we love them for it.
  • *Lurking here as a STM*

    want to say thinking of you to @WildMagelet. Sending positive vibes your way. Please let us know how the appt goes.

    Also animal lover here enjoying everyone's photos.

  • STM lurking... thinking of you and your LO @WildMagelet

    @dgaugler86 totally normal to not be showing yet. With DD I didn't actually "pop" until week 20ish. 

    @westcoastbaby2018 I delivered DD in a large hospital and didn't have any issues at all with my doctor being preoccupied with another mom. The nurses are the ones who will be with you most of the labor and the doctor will come in to check as you progres...and then when it's actually time to deliver.

  • @WildMagelet I'm so sorry that you are going through this.  <3
  • So glad I clicked on this thread because these animal pictures are insanely cute! Hugs to those of you struggling now... I would also add re: the tight jeans (STM here) that you don't get a big belly until later, but that doesn't mean your body does not start shifting things around. My pants were definitely tighter toward the end of the first trimester, and I "gracefully" and with no shame moved into leggings  :)

  • How far along are you? 13w4d!

    Any appointments this week/last? How did it go? Yup, NT scan and OB intake appointment. Both went really well. Baby's HB was 153 and one image captured was the baby laying there with his or her's ankles crossed and arms behind the head. I almost died, so cute!

    Cravings? Yes, fruit and alllll the cereal. 

    Rants/Raves? I rant for feeling like crap the past two days and breaking out like a pubescent boy. I. Am. So. Over. It. Oh and the bloat, yah that too. 

    Questions for FTM, STM+? Not at the moment. 

    GTKY: Do you have any pets? What is/are their name(s), species and breed(s). Share pictures if you want!  We have a (6) year old cat, Thumbelina. She's a polydactyl cat, hence her name. I also rescued the cutest pup (2) years ago named Atticus, but my mom was wayyyyy too attached to him for me to bring him
    to move in with me. He gets to visit often though!

  • @gilsam1 when I told my parents that I was planning to try to conceive, they were non-plussed. In fact the only person actually happy for us was my father-in-law. When I shared the news that I was pregnant though they were all very happy - I think my mom and dad needed those 8 months to get used to the idea (this is also their first grandchild). I think your parents will definitely come around!

  • @williams-jen Thank you for sharing your story,  it was reassuring.  I hope my parents come around too :smile:

  • I have been kind of AWOL for a bit. Things with the end of the school year got intense and with my anxiety disorder I was overwhelmed. I am free now though so should be back to participating!
