Eeeekkk!!!! Im already getting stretch marks??? Really??? I knew i would be prone to them since i got some from puberty, but really??? New red marks on top of my old but going towards my belly vs up and down with my old.
Im prone to them too :/ when i was in middle school i had a growth spurt and got them on my hips.... Then in highschool they got worse, and i was teeny tiny only 103 pounds and still had them so i KNOW im gonna get them. Iv been putting coco butter lotion on all over belly, hips, butt, thighs and boobs twice a day in hopes that it will help them from getting too bAd but know i will definitely be getting them even if i dont gain too much weight.
Ok so I know I said yesterday that I probably wouldn't post a bump photo for another week or two, but I was trying on some of my maternity clothes today and depending on what I am wearing, you can kind of see a bump... lol. If you never saw me before, you probably wouldn't think this was a baby bump... but I definitely do not usually have this much of a belly.
Hi ladies! Hope everyone is feeling and doing well. I shot off a quick thread this morning on my way to work to ask people to guess gender from my scan yesterday over on the general first trimester board (only to find out we are apparently not supposed to be posting those there now. um, oops) but also wanted to throw it out to this group here. Any thoughts on gender based on these pics? I've got no clue. I don't think we got a good shot of the nub and the previous guessers were equally split on boy vs. girl so we may have a mystery on our hands!
Im pretty sure i see a girl nub on the second pic and the skull looks girly to me too just myguess if u go back a few pages my pic shows a nub that my tech guessed boy and my nub sticks dtraight up where yours is low and angleing down if thats what i think is the nub
FTMOMMY...I am going to go with GIRL too...definitly looks "girly" to me, and I don't about the "nub" doesn't look like much of a nub, and looks like lines to me, which makes me think girl Either way...your baby is ADORABLE and those are great pics
As for me, I can now finally relax and enjoy 2nd trimester...YAY!! My scan went well so far and I have passed the first portion. Now wait for blood work to come back to tell me for sure. Babies HR has come down a little, it was 158. Also, he/she was moving and kicking (which I could actually feel 1 or 2 kicks pretty easily). Not able to get any good gender guess shots and couldn't get between the legs at all, although there was a time or 2 when baby stretched out and for a flash of a second I could see the between the leg shot and swore I saw a shadow of a "bulge". lol, so who knows. But I was leaning toward girl, now I am thinking boy. The babies head reminds me so much of my first son. Most important though, is that babies is growing and thriving, so I am glad no matter what!!
Are any of you having the new "HARMONY" testing done? This is the blood work that tests, with 99% accuracy, whether or not your baby will have downs, trisomy or spina bifida. It also tells the gender through blood test. I didn't think I would be able to get it, but they did it, so they call me in 10 business days with results. So in about 2 weeks I will know for sure if it is boy or girl. I am excited about that!
Anyhow, I am glad to be able to see all of your pics, so here are 2 of mine from today. They are not that clear, but still worth looking at
My babies hr have come down to 158 and 160- but still good :-) I got no nub shots though. I have an u/s July 10th with regular OB then the big u/s and gender scan July 31 with the perinatologist- I'm so excited to find out :-)
