Faith- You out there? It's been awhile, how are the triplets?
How bout you, Fitz?
May- Oh so constipated. My mom suggested I get an enema because i'm that uncomfortable, even just moving around. I've pretty much been backed up since day 1. My uterus is tilted and I think it's tilted in a way that it's making it even harder to go. I take Colace and my prenatal vitamin, CitraNatal has a stool softener in it, but I find that it actually makes me cramp, so I went back to my storebought ones and continue to take Colace, which has been a teeny bit helpful, but better than nothing. If worse comes to worse, I may suck it up and get an enema (ewwww!)
deftones- Love the pic. Boo, I don't get 3d or 4d u/s either! I wish I did now, i'm so totally jealous! Looks like a boy to me! Ha ha, I know that pic was prob way too early to tell and i'm sure it's umbilical cord, but i'm going with it. I would post some pics, but they'd just be the good old black and white ones, no bells and whistles! I agree about the pregnancy nose. My doc says mucus increases everywhere when you're pregnant and gets thicker too.
Cheryl- Not yet for me, but with everything else i've experienced, as far as symptoms go, I wouldn't be surprised if those little suckers popped up soon! No flutters for me yet, but I keep trying to feel it so bad that sometimes I think I make it up in my head!
mjay- Yay! You're back! I'm glad you're okay. I understand the busyness with work and school, that's for sure! Don't give me a heart attack though, woman! Oh, the spotting and bleeding. I seriously hate it more than anything. What you said about multiples makes total sense though and it honestly made me feel so relieved! I felt way better after finding that out, my doctor never said anything. I have DVR'ed all episodes of a Baby Story while i'm at work. I watch them all the time. I steer clear of the scary ones like "Birth Day" because it freaks me out and makes me worry.
Well, I had my NT scan today. Sort of. I saw the maternal fetal specialist, they did the scan and did all the measurements and everything looks fine. The second part, the bloodwork, he told me not to do because I told him that if I tested positive, I wouldn't get an amnio because of the risk of miscarriage and he told me not to bother with the bloodwork then because why find out if something could be wrong and not follow it up with more testing, I guess. I understood that. I wasn't even sure until today that I wouldn't get an amnio, but when he said 5%, that number seemed too risky for me, considering i'm the type of person who always falls into those odds, I thought I better not. He said that there's plenty of other screenings around the 20 week mark that I can do that aren't so invasive, so i'm fine with that. I really only wanted to see my babies again anyway, so I didn't really care about much except seeing those little heartbeats! Anyway, both babies looked good, but when I asked about the sex(es), he took a look and those babies, I swear, knew what was coming and they clamped their legs up and crossed their feet so tight we couldn't get a look in there! Oh well, I guess I'll just have to wait a bit longer. I go back to my OB on friday and I go back to the Maternal Fetal specialist every two weeks until January so that he can make sure my cervix is cooperating. 2 more days in the first trimester! Tick tock!
