ok.... why do I constantly freak out that the baby has died? Yes, I had one missed miscarriage, but the odds of the baby dying at this point are really slim.

I know my tummy is growing (I couldn't get comfortable in bed just now because I can't sleep on my tummy anymore!).

I guess I should try the doppler again. I couldn't find the HB at 14 weeks and got frustrated and gave up. I know I'm fat and have an anterior placenta, which makes things harder to find.

Lori - I've heard of the extra salvia thing (a girl on "16 & Pregnant" had it!) and that sounds awful. I'm still puking all the time and I'm firmly in the second trimester, so that's pissing me off!

Kynlee - amazing how everyone else's ticker seems to move faster than mine! :D I keep thinking "wow, she's already 15 weeks", but can't remember that I'm 16 weeks!

Ryann - glad to hear the little bugger is doing well! Sorry you are so sick, but remember, that's a sign of a healthy baby!

MadameX - I'm so sorry your friend miscarried, that's so hard for your friendship that you are pregnant and she lost hers. I hope you can both figure out a way to make it not too weird between you. Why do you not like Halloween? We don't have Halloween here, and I grew up not celebrating.

Christy - you'd BETTER be joining us over here soon! It's been way too long for you, sweety!

Leorna- i know what u mean...i freak out every so often myself. i decidied not to buy a doppler at this point not to make it worse. im not sure when i will be more relaxed

hope everyone else is doing well!

Hi ladies. Thanks for checking on me. I'm hanging in there. Yesterday I woke up feeling wonderful and was so excited. I got ready for work and the. Used the washroom before I left and had a major gush of blood. I freaked out because not only was I not sick, but then bleeding too?! So I got into my OB yesterday and my gummy bear is perfect! No clue where the blood came from, but it stopped now. I got to have a "kick your feet up" day, which was nice. I needed my Zofran today, but ate like a crazy person for the first time! I'm talking 5 cinnamon rolls in one sitting :-/

We went official on FB, so for those of you who aren't on FB with me, here was our announcement :)

Ryan- What a cute way to post your news on FB :) Sorry you had a scare yesterday but I have heard of that and then everything is fine :)

Leora- I would try the doppler some can hear it earlier then others but if you dont find it dont freak out everything is ok your little one is nestling in nicely :)

Madame- Sorry about your friend :( Life so isnt fair...

AFM- Why is it when you want time to fly it drags on by I cant wait to get through the holidays and get to 2013 :) Listen to my precious little one this morning with the Doppler love that sound never thought this was going to happen for me and so glad I wasnt going to give up :) Just being pregnant is a Dream come true but holding my baby next year is beyond anything I could imagine :) Thinking of each of you :)

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!! How is everyone feeling?

Had an OB appt on Friday and heartbeat is 154. Talked to OB about this saliva thing and it seems that it is more than just having a lot of saliva. She believes that over night my stomach is getting too empty which does not keep stomach acid at bay so she suggested if i wake up in the middle of the night to eat some crackers ( even though the morning sickness is gone ). I have tried the past 2 nights and it has HELPED!!! I might cough a couple times but not like i was and i dont have to end up in the bathroom!! So very excited but i always dont wake up in the middle of the night so we will see how it goes :D

14 weeks today! I never thought that I would ever be able to say that.

Always- Glad your Dr found a solution to the saliva thing, I must eat to much so I dont get that problem lol... Happy 14 weeks I know the feeling of excitement everyday that goes by makes it that more real that Dreams do come true... :) NOw that I am showing people are starting to ask and I love that I can smile and say Yes I am expecting ;)

Always - you can take meds for acid reflux and that would greatly help as well. The cough is prob due to acid backing up into your throat. I take Zegerid 2x/day because of it and I'm so much better now

Lori - I'm glad your doctor's suggestion worked! Happy 14 weeks! That's a great milestone!

Kynlee - You're lucky to be showing -- I'm just looking fatter! :D If I wear maternity clothes (especially a high empire waist) AND tell people I'm pregnant, maybe they'll think I'm showing :roll:

Lauren - Does the Acid Reflux meds help with the heartburn? My heartburn is getting SOOOO bad - and taking Tums just makes me want to puke more....

AFM - still worried about baby boy -- I haven't tried again with the Doppler, because I think it's just freaking me out more. I know I have an anterior placenta, so hopefully it's just that.

I think I'm starting to feel some movement - just little flips and jabs. I hope it's baby boy, and not just my imagination!

I have my next OB appt in a week (on Monday), but I'm freaking out a little bit. I have to go into the clinic on Wednesday for my AFP blood draw (the triple/quad test), and maybe I'll ask for a quick u/s for peace of mind.

This next little bit is the scariest for me -- I wish I could just skip over the next 10 weeks and go straight to the second trimester. I hope baby boy keeps cooking until January at least!

Leora- My niece said her placenta blocked her from hearing the baby too, so its probably the way yours is position as well... My placenta is the opposite so I think that is why I heard it so early... I pray that this trimester flys by for you, I know you must be on pins and needles but this is your Rainbow baby everything will be ok :)

AFM- Felt like I had the bug yesterday so I rested all day.... Baby was active all Saturday morning felt like popcorn popping lol what a awesome feeling...

???? IS anyone getting the Flu shot? My Dr highly recommends it but with everything I went through I am nervous that it could harm the baby :( All my relatives that have had babies got it and said its fine but I guess since I had to work for my little bundle I am more cautious...

Leora- yes!! That's also what it's for. Try it out. It's a lifesaver.

Kynlee - going to the on today and requesting a flu shot. I'll let you know what happens. Hope you feel better.

Also, leora - it's gonna be fine. I know after all you've been through that this is terrifying, but please try to believe that this time is different. I mean, think about how all this started. I feel like your baby boy specifically told you he wasn't going anywhere.

leorna-things will be fine. You have done great so far..this is your time and you will have ur rainbow baby. I agree with Lauren!

kynlee-when i went to OB they offered it. Due to my job as well i have contact with a lot of people so my job has a flu clinic every year and i was planning on getting it then after speaking with OB. OB offers all patients the flu shot. She told me that there shot does not have preservaties and i needed to make sure the one at work also had no preservaties and it must be the shot ( not nasal spray ). She also said that the short needle shots the ingredients are unknown so i need to be careful. With all that and too many what if's...i had OB do the shot on Friday when i was there. She said it takes 2 weeks to be effective.

How are u feeling today?

Lauren- thats exactly what it is. With no eating overnight, in the am the acid comes up into my throat. I now have a couple cracker in the middle of the night, then still eat as soon as i get up then sit for at least 45 but more than an hour if possible this helps to settle the food! Weekends are no problem but work days it is hard to do it but overall it has been better.

AFM: feeling ok. Still gets tired and winded quickly. Needed new tires and DH came with me and the smell of the rubber almost made me pass out in the store so i needed to go outside and sit in my car with the door open it was like 45 outside.
Just curious...what time do u ladies go to bed, stop eating, and stop having water ...just wondering if i am stopping to early but i get tired and sleepy sooo early. Im usually in bed by 9 and had a snack by 830-845 for the night.

I guess there was a reason I felt something was wrong....baby boy has no heartbeat. I had no bleeding or cramping. I can't believe it. We are heartbroken and numb.

So Sorry Leora.. this just isn't fair. The bad thing is, this was probably just a freak accident like a problem with the umbilical cord or a genetic abnormality.. Nothing due to your body or anything you could control. Just plain bad luck.. this just sucks.. it heartbreaking.. Sending lots of hugs to David and You.
