Congrats ladies on your girls=) I was supposed to find out in 2 days on Monday, but my doc's ultrasound machine broke=( So now I will find out sometime in the next week and a half. The good thing is that the doc bought a new machine and it is 3d/4d, so that should be really neat! Can not wait to find out, but I am still pretty sure that I am having a boy. Hope everyone is doing well!
Well I had a very scary day today. On our way to the ultrasound we got in a bad car accident. I actually broke the windshield with my forehead, and all I cared about was babus safety. Went to hospital and everything looked ok. I am so nervous something could g wrong in the next few days. On a happier note today, we did find out we are team pink!
Dana how scary! I hope everything is ok. Are you ok? I'm sure baby will be fine, all that padding (fluid!)
I've had an emotional week. Baby girl has choroid plexus cysts on her brain which they say aren't an issue, but that it is a soft marker for Edwards (t18). We had a level 2 ultrasound yesterday and met with a genetics counselor. They didn't find anything else wrong with her so they gave me odds of 1/500 which is much better than the risks I heard before the ultrasound. We saw her playing with her toes and hiding her face which was so cute! They were so thorough and I feel better afterwards, like being sure nothing got missed as far as other markers.
Thanks! I am ok and went to doc again today and baby is just fine=)
Sorry to hear about your week. I am glad that your odds are 1/500...really good odds! So cute that she was playing with her toes=)
At my ultrasound right after the accident she was not moving much and was literally folded in half. I think she was scared from all of the jolting in the accident But..she seems to be a trooper and so far all is well!
Daisy~glad you are feeling a little better after your ultrasound and you go to see your little one moving...how sweet, playing with her toes!!!
Danamm~glad you and baby are okay!!!
Welcome Bleeding Back!
Nothing too new with me...I can always tell when baby is growing b/c I get extremely uncomfortable and I still get sick!! Not everyday thank goodness! I had to do a 24-hr urine collection to check for protein. The amount was in normal limits thank goodness. For the most part, my blood pressure has been fine, but on occasion it is borderline (138/87, today it was 132/82). I see stars sometimes, get bad headaches that last for a few days at a time...but hoping it's all nothing.
Otherwise, I'm loving feeling my baby move! Baby is getting stronger...so fun!
Hope everyone has a good rest of the week...and a nice Thanksgiving, if you celebrate that
Dimples.... Sorry to hear about your headaches! Hopefully it's nothing... Just hormone related. A friend of mine is pregnant and she's had lots of headaches this pregnancy but she has normal bp.... So less worrying. By bp has been behaving for now. I think it helps that I'm not working. It was higher 2nd tri with Megan than it has been this time. My biggest issue is lightheadedness. I feel like fainting quite often and haven't gotten any great advice from 2 different drs about it. I only had it 1 time the whole pregnancy with Megan, and now sometimes multiple times a day. My hips and pelvis are already hurting. I feel like I've been kicked in my girl parts. Ouch! Had it with Megan as well. Was told it's my hips separating. Fun!
Have had some Braxton hicks, but last night I had an actual painful one. Sure surprised me!
