Hello my dears!
This is the reason why I love this forum so much. You really get to bond with people! Thank you WashingtonDA and CT_Michelle for stopping by, it means A LOT to me. Love you girls!
I went for my 14 weeks check up yesterday and everything is looking lovely!
We got to hear the heartbeat through the doppler...it was so exciting. My only regret is not having a camera to take a picture of DH's face. hahahahhha! He jumped off his chair, open his mouth, and kept looking at the doppler with amazement....too cute, and super funny
I'm going back in 4 weeks. Our midwife gave us some "homework." She asked us to read a chapter from a book she gave us that discusses different tests. She said that we need to think about it, and we are going to discuss them during our next appointment. I'm a bit nervous about those
we'll see. The most exciting part is that we get to have an u/s next time to check the baby's anatomy. I'm SO looking forward to that. We had decided not to find out the sex of the baby until birth, but DH was so happy yesterday that he almost changed his mind. I asked him to wait, we still have 4 weeks to go!
ALREADYBLESSED: how cool that your daughter was there to see her little sibling! sounds lovely
I'm glad everything is going well. About the amnio, I'm not doing it. It's a personal choice for me (for various reasons).About the flu shot, I haven't even thought about it. My midwife hasn't said anything. I've never gotten a flu shot either, so I don't know what I would decide if she asked me to get one. Have you made up your mind?
AMAZU--honey, I'm sorry to hear about your fall. Sounds scary
I'm glad to hear that you're doing better and that the baby is fine. Please take good care of yourself. I'm sending you healing thoughts. About the economy, yes, it is awful and scary. I certainly hope your dh doesn't loose his job, and that your brother finds one quickly. It's so sad that with this big crisis the big shot guys that need to be held accountable seem to be getting away with everything; meanwhile it's us paying the consequences. Thinking of you.
LITERATRIZ--hi hon! I know what you mean about sexuality and maternity...can you believe that DH and I have not "done" it again since that day? hahahaha! on the one hand sometimes I feel crapy and tired and all I want is sleep (if he was up to it during the day, I would definitely get into it!), and on the other, he hasn't even tried anymore...I think he's scared! He keeps rubbing my belly, and after listening to the heartbeat yesterday, who knows if he's going to touch me again while I'm preggo...hehehehe, we'll see!
SONU--I'm so happy you had fun seeing the baby at your last scan. Is so exciting to see our little ones, even if it's just for a little bit
I always look up for your stories because you are ahead of us. Thank you for sharing so much good information. Did they tell you in your scan if the placenta had changed location? are you allowed to move around more?
I think it's interesting what you said about shopping. To be honest, that makes sense to me. After I loss my first pregnancy I decided that I would not buy anything until after the baby was born (whenever I got pregnant again), I even said that I would have my baby shower AFTER the baby was born. Now, after 2+ years of that experience I feel a little different and I think I could have my shower and do the shopping before, BUT all of that seems so faraway to me that I'm not putting too much thought into it yet.
Ok Lovelies, I hope I didn't miss anyone. Sending all March-April mommies LOTS of love and great vibes. Grow bellies, grow
