I've been a bit slack on here. But I haven't really had anything to report.
I'm glad to see everyone is doing so well though.
Ladydee, would an au pair be worthwhile?
Snuffy, I hope you get a scan soon too
I'm off for my dating scan today. I'm very, very nervous about it. I wasn't too nervous until yesterday, when Mr 6 accidentally found out about the baby (he has hearing like a velociraptor!). He's so excited and has wanted another sibling for so long, I can't bear the thought of him suffering another loss. We had planned to tell him once we saw the heartbeat, so now I'm really crossing my fingers that we see that flicker!He's already said several things like, "I hope this baby doesn't die". Ugh, I hate that my 6 year old even has thoughts like that.
How did you go sms89? thinking of you
welcome to the new ladies!!
Hope everyone whos had bleeding, is resting and that it eases so bubs can snuggle in tight for the next however long till they come out healthy and happy.
Congrats to everyone who had great scans/results.
sms, how was your scan today?
AFM - 28 weeks today - THIRD TRIMESTER!!!
We had our first growth scan...and...well a few things came out of it.
- Bub is STILL a boy. (She double checked for us, even though i pointed it out at our morph scan before she said anything)
- bub is almost head down (oblique) With his head in my right hip.
- he is healthy....very healthy...His average measurements have him measuring 15 DAYS AHEAD!! Which has me measuring 30+1. Including his head circumfrence!
A little bit worried about trying for a VBAC with a huge baby!
The sonographer asked me if i had Gestational diabeties he's growing ahead that much, and she tripple checked the measurements! But no, i dont have GD. I just seem to grow big bubbas!
They start small and slow, behind 4-5 days at dating scans...but gradually catch up, and then some. DS measured 4 weeks ahead at his 36wk scan!
OB appointment tuesday to discuss the VBAC nitty gritty. We are starting on the nursery this weekend.
Oh shadow angel that is awesome... Glad things look good ... Good luck with vbac discussion.
I've found a great online deal for cot, change table and bassinet... Just worried about transporting across States and any issues that could arise. It's a Tasman Eco stuff... Which compared to the boori stuff I'm looking at could save ne a good $4-500 (as long as postage costs are accurate
Went to the dr yesterday and she said my hcg levels had risen from 15700 on Tuesday to 17500 on Thursday so that's a good sign. I had a scan on Tuesday and sac was measuring 5+3 so I have another scan on Thursday next week when I should be 6+6 hopefully we will see a heartbeat. I know the number hasn't doubled, but I've also read that when they get up that high they take a lot longer to double. Feeling a little better, but just want to see a heartbeat and I'll relax a little. They couldn't see where the bleeding was coming from and had no answes on that side of things.
Scan was good Nice, strong heartbeat and bub is measuring spot-on for dates.
Now I'm trying to decide whether to get a Harmony test done.
