Mommyxofxone - Lol! They are girls. I told them today and they both were so excited and said they were wondering if I was. One said she was looking at me the other day and my skin was glowing, and also she's noticed I've been going to the bathroom a lot. Plus I've had 2 appointments recently. I told them I appreciated that they waited until I was ready to tell them! They haven't said anything about the boobs, lol. I think this last scan was so amazing because the baby was moving! No longer a blob where I can't figure out which side is the head lol. I so can't wait until I'm all big and feel him/her moving around!!

So excited for all of you! Congrats on the scan ksquared! And congrats on the little boy mommyofone!

The Chinese gender chart was the only gender prediction thing that was right for me.

I have exciting news about my little man - he rolled over a couple days ago! He's only 10.5 weeks! And he's already 15 lbs!

Hi Ladies, sorry i am not really updating much but i am having such a tough time with the pregnancy and keeping my positivity levels high. Daily i find myself working myself up because i have little to no symptoms. I know the odds are in my favour but when my only symptom (slightly sore bbs) goes like it has now i just have a complete meltdown. I have a private scan booked for a little under 3 weeks but i am driving myself nuts which is really not very good for me. I sit and cry and think its all over and worry about a mmc. I am a mess.
So sorry to bring the mood down i just sometimes feel i cant cope and feel awful for my husband as he is the only one who knows and can begin to try and comfort me.

aw hun i'm sorry i know how it feels. somedays now i have nothing at all. somedays he doesn't even kick so i really freak out. i actually used the doppler yesterday cause i was so nervous. but i didn't feel him all night last night so guess what- i'm freaking out. even though i know i listened yesterday and felt him a ton, i can't help it. scares me.

Crazycatlady - Omg I can't believe your little boy is getting so big already! That's so exciting.

Mommyxofxone - Congratulations on getting some strong kicks! I'm sorry that it's been stressful not feeling them all the time, and without other symptoms it makes you worry. If I have an anterior placenta like my doctor thinks, I fear I'm going to be a mess of worry when my first tri symptoms subside. Hang in there . You should be able to find the heartbeat easily now with the Doppler, right?

HopefullyOpto - Oh I am so sorry that you're so worried. I absolutely hate that feeling. And even though you had a beautiful scan just a few days ago, it is only reassuring for maybe like a day. I totally understand. Have you noticed that your nips are darker than they were pre-pregnancy? I feel like that is the one thing I can count on to be the same. But I also don't want to worry you if you haven't noticed that! But just wanted to say that is the one consistent thing that tends to make me feel better. Hopefully you start feeling some more symptoms within the next week just for reassurances. I keep thinking about you and sending you good vibes. If you're really nervous and can't stand it, I would just pay for a private scan. Like when I went to the emergency room because of the spotting. Big big hugs and I'll be thinking of you and your little bean.

Afm - I've been having pretty consistent nausea all week, which is good. It's weird because it's not like my stomach is upset, it's more like I'm fighting the urge to gag and dry heave. It is very mild and only usually if I'm hungry or have just eaten. It may have lessened a bit yesterday. Also, this is so tmi but the last couple of days and especially yesterday my sex drive has dramatically increased. I get all hot and bothered so easily it's distracting! I hear that happens toward the 2nd tri so I guess it's started a little early. But it helps me think that things are still progressing. This was the week where all of my symptoms stopped with my loss and I didn't know about the mmc until week 11, so it's reassuring to feel these things.

Aidensmomma - How are things with you? How was your scan??

Yes I can find it on the Doppler but its hard cause he moves so darn much! It takes me forever!!! And I have an anterior placenta as well (did with dd too) and I can only feel him in certain spots.

Oh man I hope the nausea leaves. I got that in first tri. I never get the sex drive though lol

Yes aidens how did it go?!

How far along are each of you now?

Hopefullyopto I had worries off and on the whole time too, especially during the first trimester. I found a chart that tells you the risk of mmc and it was comforting to see the risk decrease as time went on.

Ksquared I had the sex drive thing too, it started in the second trimester and never went away throughout the third. Which was awful because my husband was away during the 2nd trimester and I just saw him for a bit, then in the third I was a giant! And even though I wanted to have sex it was hard to get a position I was comfortable in!

Hey ladies

Sorry it took me so long to update - I've been super busy and just haven't had much time to update.

My ultrasound went well. We got to see our little baby (although it just looks like a smudge right now ) He/she was measuring right on for dates and we got to see the heartbeat We didn't get to hear the heartbeat and it was a pretty quick ultrasound, but I'm happy nonetheless. I have my 12-week ultrasound scheduled for February 18th.

crazycatlady - Your little man is getting so big! Must be super exciting

As for the gender predictors, I've used a bunch of different ones so far online and most of them say boy, although there's a few that have said girl. One of them is going to be right at least.

HopefullyOpto - I'm sorry that you're struggling to stay positive. Sending lots and lots of your way.

ksquared - I'm glad you're getting reassuring symptoms. I'm jealous of your sex drive - since I found out I was pregnant, I have had no sex drive whatsoever. I feel so bad for my OH...we've DTD once this month. Luckily, he's taking it in stride, but I feel so bad. I hope things get better in second tri.

mommyxofxone - I'm glad you're getting some proper kicks now. I can't wait until this baby gets big enough that I start feeling him/her move.

**Oh, and could you also change my due date from September 7, to September 4? My doctor is using the due date based on my lmp, which is close to my due date on my ovulation day, so I'll just go with my doctor's due date so I don't get confused.
