How far along are you? 15w4d today
Any appointments? Questions? I had an OB appointment last Thursday, it was just a quick check-in and I got my flu shot. Tomorrow they are doing free ultrasounds (for ultrasound tech students) where I work, so I will get a peek at baby girl!
Rants/Raves? I think my feet are getting bigger, my shoes today suddenly feel too small which is super annoying!!
How are you feeling? Feeling pretty good overall still, though heartburn is getting worse as the weeks go on. Ugh.
GTKY: Has anyone made their pregnancy announcement? If so, what did you do and if not, what are you planning to do? I announced it in a Facebook moms group I'm part of (from back when I had my daughter in 2011) and that was fun because they all know about our infertile journey! I've told people at work and have told most family/friends. No Facebook announcement yet.
@JamieH2000 I haven't watched your video yet because I'm at work but I want to watch it later!!
@kristimh80 - do tell about your heartburn relief variety pack! so far I've been using Tums but I feel like I'm going to be immune soon haha.
How far along are you?
15 weeks, 1 day (EDD April 2)
Any appointments? Questions?
OB appt next week.
Just started cleaning out what will be the baby's room (and is currently an "office", aka room full of junk)! A lot of work to do before we get to the decorating stage but I've never been so motivated to clear out junk before
How are you feeling?
For some reason I escaped the *having to pee all the time* until now, but boy has it hit me. I'm constantly thirsty and then constantly having to pee. Fun fun because I have a bit of a walk to the washroom at work! Otherwise feeling good.
GTKY: Has anyone made their pregnancy announcement? If so, what did you do and if not, what are you planning to do?
We told our parents right away. Told close friends after ours 9 week u/s. Started spreading the word to family at 12 weeks. Just did a FB announcement yesterday. Nothing fancy, just a classic u/s pic
Happy Thanksgiving, fellow Canadians.
@uterusdreams I got the Zantac 150 yesterday and so far it's worked miracles! I still keep my tums in my purse, but haven't needed them at all today. Omg about the shoes! I've gone up at least 1/2 a size. So have been sticking to open toed shoes to deal.
placenta concern is due to the low fetal fraction results of 1.2% in the Panorama
test. It should be at least 10%. So the reasons for low fetal fractions are: 1.
Overweight which I’m not. 2. Test done too early, which it wasn’t 3. Just
because 4. Placental problems. They didn’t see anything wrong in the
ultrasound. So the Quad Screen plus the Maternt21 will let us know if I should
go forward with an amnio.
That’s so annoying about your doc but I’ve also had
experiences like that. Where they ask me all these questions again and again
and I’m like “it’s all in my chart, dude” read it before you come in here. That’s
good you will get extra US. And it doesn’t sound like the baby has any alarming
heart issues. As I mentioned before, my daughter has heart issues and we visit
a cardiologist every 6 months and all is ok. She still may need angioplasty but
we will worry about that when and if the time comes. I know it’s so hard, but
try not to stress because no matter what it’ll be ok!
Thanks so much @halips and @uterusdreams and yes a boy! I
have no idea what do with that information lol. I’m used to having a girl!!
@uterusdreams 50 degrees? Oh my! It’s so hot and humid here
in Pa and NYC still.
I know! I have no experience with boys either so this will be interesting for
sure. Interesting about IVF causing higher placental issues. My daughter was
conceived through a fresh transfer and I literally had ZERO problems. So I’m
curious why this time it’s so different. I didn’t have pre-e or GD or any type
of issues last time.
JamieH2000 yes! I
hope they come back ASAP too. We are both having a boy so that’s exciting. Will
keep you updated.
more14 I did
Qnatal with my first and all was perfect. This time panorama. And now waiting
for maternit21 results so will see what comes out of that.
my first pregnancy for the first 16 weeks I wanted so many ultrasounds but then
realized Doppler and hearing the heartbeat at the docs office was ok. then I started
having weekly appointments and that just because annoying. Lol. Went from
wanting to be at the docs every day to not wanting to go at all. Ha! This time,
will all these issues I want to go in every day now.
