Yay! For all the great scans! ...go team blue huh?
...is sunshinebell the only one of us with a girl on board so far??? My scan is next Thursday, so we'll find out then whether we are team pink or team blue
Sorry you received such a thrashing sunshinebell ...stay over here in the safe zone! Xx
Hi ladies haven't posted for a long time but thought I would update you all. Finally met our OB last week. Very happy with her. She did a quick scan on blob who is starting to look more like a baby and less like a blob. I am 11 weeks today on Father's Day so getting closer to our nuchal scan which is on the 9th. Still nauseous especially in the afternoon and shocking heartburn and reflux at night. Still very nervous that this isn't real but trying to relax more. No Father's Day plans for us as I am at work and DH is home studying. Hope you have all had a good day and get some rest.
Oh I almost forgot we finally have a definite due date which is march 23rd. I am still guessing blob will come on the 20th as that is dads anniversary
Love to you all
I am having my first evening in months with no nausea or heartburn - yay!! I switched my multivit from Elevit to Blackmore's as some suggested...and it does seem to help with the nausea as it stopped almost instantly. Funny, I've literally been taking Elevit for years with no problems, but even if it's psychosomatic I'll take that over nausea. The heartburn seems to be made worse by drinking fruit juice, so I'm going to keep off that and see what happens.
Congrats to all the good scan results of the last few days. We won't know gender til our morph scan. We have a feeling...but keeping that to ourselves
Littlesunflowers - yay on the multivit switch being a good thing
Pilbara - not long now until your scan either There seem to be a bunch of us with EDD's fairly close together. Do you have a boy/girl preference?
Jedi - I have had terrible reflux since about the day I got my BFP, so I sympathise I have prescription meds from the doctor that work reasonably well & are safe in pregnancy, you might want to consider that. In particular the meds helped me sleep better (because I wasn't waking up choking on stomach acid).
Jedihouse - glad to hear you are doing well!
littlesunflowers - yay for some nausea relief! I feel like a different person now that my morning sickness has gone
twocam - yes, there are quite a few of with close due dates! I keep oscillating back and forth between hoping its a girl and thinking how nice it might be to have a boy ...at the end of the day, I don't mind, I'm just desperate to know so that I can get excited about which ever one it turns out to be! Hopefully I don't get told the wrong one like that lady in the UK tat sunshinebell posted about!
...does anyone know how to start a role call with due dates and genders (for those who are going to find out)?
I've been laying low for a while. Still can't quite believe that I am 13.5 weeks pregnant! I've been waiting for the bad news at every scan, or waiting for cramps and bleeding, but I am relieved to say, beanie bubba looks like it's here to stay! So now that we've passed that 12wk zone, we've actually started to believe that there is no reason why this bubba can't go full term. Why can't this happen for us? It actually just might! Little miracle indeed.
At every scan bubba has been leaping around in there. Puts on a real show. It's so cute and it makes it real. After every scan dh and I high 5. We can't believe how clever and lucky we have got. I've been so lucky to have escaped morning sickness and really only began to feel tiredness in the last 2 wks. I've been weaned off all ivf medications now, so am waiting for the moonface to go down from the prednisone, and maybe a bit of belly swelling to go down, cos I seriously look 5 mnths gone. But I don't care. I'm pregnant!
The next ob apt isn't for another 4 weeks. I have no idea how I'm going to handle that. As an ivfer I'm used to constant monitoring, measuring, counting and conferring. Now it's like I've just been told to go away and grow a baby! Well I guess there's nothing more for anyone to do. Just carry on! So I will. Edd is 7 March. Can't wait. After all this time. .. is really happening. Xx
