How far along? 19+3Appts this coming week? I was scheduled for anatomy scan this week, but due to a complication (see below) it got bumped up to last week. The good news is the anatomy scan went perfectly and we are having a Boy AND a girl!How're you feeling this week? Last week was rough. I woke up Sunday morning around 4am bleeding. This happened to me early on in my pregnancy due to a SCH, so I tried not to panic. I'd been bleed free for 10 weeks so it certainly wasn't something I was expecting at 18 weeks but it stopped as quickly as it started. They put me on bedrest and brought me in for an early anatomy scan- it's another (or maybe the same) hematoma. It's small, and near my cervix but not near the babies or the placentas. It's not really dangerous as it is now but the risks are that it could either grow/move OR heavy bleeding could force my water to break. So I'm back on pelvic rest and limited activity- no bed rest officially but rest as much as possible. My OB has me coming in every 2 weeks now moving forward.
I've also been having terrible sciatica pain. One side tingles when I lay down, the other throbs/spasms depending on how I'm sitting/laying. The couch has been particularly problematic, I guess not enough support. I seem to feel better standing/sitting up straight in a firm chair. Sort of hard to be on modified bed rest when it hurts your back to do so! I'd really like to see a chiropractor but I'm nervous about the implications with the SCH.
GTKY: What is everyone doing as far as showers / sprinkles? Who is hosting? Are you having multiple showers? Etc. A friend is hosting one for me where I live in mid-July. I was really hoping my MIL would offer to host one at her house in Orlando since I have a ton of friends in FL that might not make the trip otherwise, but so far she hasn't and I hate to ask.

I'm blogging about it here
I ladies. Just wanted
to drop by to say hi before moving on to the third trimester board. I really can’t wait to see you all there and
of course keep up with you J I really can’t believe how quickly the time
@dragonfly6191 congratulations on your little boy and
girl!!! I’m sorry you have been having
complications I’m sure that must be very scary and tough to stay put. Sending
you good vibes that those babies stay safe and sound.
@adirat you are my partner in never ending nausea. It’s not fair. I have given up about taking the high road
with it and now constantly complain about STILL being sick. I’m just so much fun to be around. Hope your previa improves that uterus and
baby still has a lot of growing to do.
@sarcsticowl Sorry about the heartburn and swelling. I hear you that Tylenol is useless. Have you tried pre-natal yoga? That has really helped me with my back issues
and learning some techniques for the swelling.
I don’t know much about BabyList but I wouldn’t be too
concerned about what has been purchased.
Maybe they are all just going to give you cash.
Great to see you here @radmom27! We’ve had quite a ride together so far haven’t
I’m super anxious for my appointment today. I know baby boy is doing fine because he’s
been so active lately but my husband is traveling so I’ll be alone and that
just makes me nervous. I was told there
was no need to fast before my glucose test but I’m being extra careful with my
sugar intake just in case. It’s going to
be a long day before I leave work at 1:30.
