Hello Everyone - Let me try to do some personals....
Purplefish - Congrats on finished floors! That must be nice to cross off the to-do list
I too had an appt this week and heard the heartbeats for the first time! Baby A 152bpm and Baby B 142bpm! Bet you can't wait for your U/S! I can't wait until I start to feel movement. My DH and I were just talking about how quickly things are moving. I now have a little belly, we heard the heartbeats, we'll soon be seeing them at our Level II U/S in 3 weeks and soon I'll feel the "quickening" YAY!
I heard the Moby wrap is amazing, glad you like it so far, sounds like something I'm going to be putting on the registry!
Natasha - Welcome! I get occasional cramps as well sometimes in the lower belly - probably just growing uterus pains and sometimes cramps on the sides near my hips - probably just stretching and adjusting of the round ligaments which typically happens when I got from sitting to standing. All normal according to my OB. I recently got off progestorone and have been headaches so may be related. I hope you feel better soon.
Jenice - How are things with you?
Lisadb - I hope you're feeling better. How is the nausea, I hope not too bad.
PA_FA - I can't believe that there's still quite the buzz on Steven Slater. But I do wish I could down the slide in a non-emergency situation, of course! I read your post on Winter Friends and it's crazy how identical our experiences are. I too was recently taken off progesterone suppositories. I was so nervous to stop abruptly so I weaned myself off at my own pace. I went from twice a day to once a day x3 to every other day x2 then stopped. I wanted to check my blood level but my OB said it was unnecessary because I would not have gotten this far in this pregnancy and my uterus has taken over by now. So, I am glad to finally be off of those mess sticks! Unfortunately, I still have the discharge but that should be done too. I'm just glad I can stop the panty liners soon too! LOL I've also been getting headaches, as I mentioned to Natasha, it may be related to coming off of progesterone? The other day my headache was so bad, I actually felt better after I threw up, ugh. Sorry to hear about your woes with your maternity uniform and I love how supportive your husband is being!
AFM, went in for Week 14 visit on Monday and heard the heartbeats for the first time! 152bpm and 142bpm, I recorded the sounds on my Blackberry so I can listen to them whenever I want! Going in on 9/9 for our Level II U/S, we'll be at 17 1/2 weeks by then. We can't wait, I haven't 'seen' them since Week 9! Maybe we might even be able to determine the sexes then? So, finally told all the family and friends on Monday - it was so amazing all the well wishes and support we've received especially as many were familiar with our desire to become parents all these years. It's been so much fun letting everyone know. It is still a secret at work, I plan to share the news at a team meeting in Boston on 9/10. It's been tough keeping it a secret at work though because of this little bump I've developed in the last week and I swear I grow overnight!
Starting to feel better - off progesterone, nausea decreased, getting my energy back, feeling very blessed every single day.
Okay, I wanted to share something else, but can't remember.....ah, pregnesia setting in again (which was apparent when I lost by Blackberry earlier today, luckily it was found at the restaurant where I had dinner. I NEVER lose things - until now)!
Good Night All! Take care!
