I will def find out gender but I don't want too many scans so the gender and anatomy check will happen at 20 weeks. I'm hoping to get away with just two the whole pregnancy (12 and 20 weeks) as long as I have an uncomplicated preg that is. I don't really want to go for regular check ups with the dr either but I don't know what exactly is recommended until I see the dr. I get my blood work confirmation on Monday and I will discuss with my PCP about what I should do and then make an appt with the OB group I picked out (my friends recommended).
I know it's suppose to go up faster with twins but I don't know about what it does before the 25 mark since there isn't much data about that early.
Names will be tricky. My husband is very Italian and his family has a tradition of 3 first names. We don't have that in the US. We have a first name and prehaps a middle name and sometimes two but that makes paperwork complicated. The names he's mentioned before I don't like too so we will see. The Italian names I like are Matteo and Nicco. I like Sophia but I have a friend named that.

Welcome Emiloo

April - do you mind me asking why you don't want many scans or check ups ?
I love the name Nicolette for Italian families I probably couldn't get away with it because we are very Irish blooded lol .


Kittykat - try not to worry ! As long as it's well above cover it's fine ! Mine have also dipped some but I stopped recording it on my chart . I think after implantation your temps fluctuate a bit until they find a 'happy spot'

I was a part of a group like this on this site a couple years ago and we all decided to make a private Facebook page where we could interact a little easier without logging in on here , & it was easier to post updates & photos . We are all still friends , it's awesome !
Would anyone be interested in that ?

I will probably only have 2 scans as well, that's all my Dr does unless necessary to do extra. Baby brain has got me bad already, which is awful since I do analytical work!! We have some preliminary names, but no middle names yet.
I am also in a Facebook group with ladies I met here 4 years ago with my son's pregnancy. We are all still connected through the group and it's fun watching the kids grow up together. A bunch of us have met up when we are near others, too! One of my closest UK friends from the group is coming to the US in the spring and we are already planning on meeting! I became very close friends with a girl in our group, we both ended up being from New Jersey and see each other frequently. We also do secret santa, different games, and funny videos to each other.

A couple of reasons. I don't like dr offices- they tend to stress me out. I don't like ultrasounds as they stress me out and I read that if not done properly they can be harmful for the baby. I don't want anything that's unnecessary that could harm the baby.

Hi Ladies!

Can i join please? I am due August 21st! My only symptom so far is extreme bloating. So much so that a co-worker jokingly asked if i was pregnant!! Told him he was being rude and i just had a big lunch haha

I have my first doctors appointment tomorrow just to get bloods done. I have extremely low iron when i am pregnant and need to take supplements. My proper appointment with the Ob is 29th December when i'm nearly 7 weeks and get to have a scan! So excited as i never got an early scan with my previous two.

Those that are on to subsequent pregnancies, when did you tell your other children?
