Didi - congrats! I can't wait to see pictures of your beautiful baby girl! Hearing success stories keeps all of us in the first trimester sane and focused on the goal!
Lou - seriously? It would suck to get that kind of reaction. Do they know how hard you were trying? Did you tell them last time? I'm sorry hon. Everyone here is cheering you on!
Ryann - I get the same reaction when I tell people about our journey so far. They don't understand why we are so desperate to have kids since we are so young. I get "well, why don't you wait a few years?" from EVERYONE, including my own mother. UGH. So what that most people I know waited until they were 30 to have kids? I want kids NOW (well, actually 3 years ago). Ugh. We will be great moms, even if we are young.
Chris - we were having sex right after the BFP - but we had to stop again because I had a big bleeding episode. I think you'll be fine. Just be gentle and don't freak out if you have a bit of spotting. Just a few more days until your u/s!
Nicole - I'm so glad your niece is doing well! Any idea when she'll get to come home? They say in general that preemie come home around their due date.
Jamila - hello April buddy - I can't believe how close you are getting to the end! She'll be here in no time!
AFM - I'm bouncing between stressing out like crazy and being quite confident that things are fine. I met with my new super-duper high risk OB on Thursday. He said that since I haven't had any bleeding, I can stop the bed rest and just take it really easy. He said one trip out of the house per day would be fine. Phew.
I'm still on pins and needles for my u/s on Sunday. Since the babies were both measuring small last week AND this is just about where I lost my last pregnancy (at exactly 8 wks I had an u/s that showed no hb), I'm actually freaking out a little bit.
Things are tense here, but hopefully after Sunday we'll both relax.
