star- That's exactly what I heard with an anterior placenta, around 20-22 weeks you're supposed to feel something. How cool to feel that one kick! That must have been so amazing. That's great that you have flexible hours. DH works at my company now, so we're thinking of doing something like one person works 6-2 and the other works 10-6. That way we only need child care from 10-2. I don't know if it'll work out but we'll see!

hopeful- Welcome and congrats! That's an excellent first beta. Good luck tomorrow!

october- Great scan pics! Aw, that's so cute your DH is excited. I know what you mean about buying things but worst case scenario, it could be returned. That won't happen though!!! I'm so glad your scan went well. I'm actually measuring 3 days ahead and they told me that's fine too. I think better bigger than smaller, right? My RE told me that this early it's common to be off by as much as 2 weeks! So try not to worry.

My appointment is at 2pm, I'll update after. Super nervous about this one.

Scooby, that sounds like a good plan for childcare, I always find it an effort now taking Madeleine to nursery or my sisters and then to work son can't see me doing it with 2 haha, think I'm just finding it an effort now with the tiredness too really

Yay for scan today, sure all will be great!

Ko, mine isn't until 2 weeks today when I'll be 12w4d feels like such a long wait! I'm sure your bump will suddenly pop out soon, you will just wake up and it will be there lol, very exciting

koj- I'm sure your appointment tomorrow will be fine, but I totally understand the nerves beforehand! As for having a bump, I know so many people who barely showed until they were 4/5 months along. (My sister carried SUPER small.) One thing is certain- it will come eventually

star- I know some places don't like part-timers or charge a way higher rate, so hopefully we'll find somewhere that can work with us. We're also hoping my boss will let us both work from home on Fridays so we can limit daycare costs even more.

hopeful- Awesome beta! I'm so glad everything looks good. Good luck at your scan! Hope the 2 weeks passes quickly

October- I just wanted to tell you the ultrasound tech I had yesterday said the measurements are so variable at this stage because the baby curling over a little bit versus stretching out can cause a 7 day difference in the dating. It gets more accurate when they get bigger.

AFM, scan went very well. NT measurement was 1.3 which is very low and they saw the nasal bone. Baby was being very uncooperative because it just wanted to lounge facedown lol. We did the Natera test (like Harmony) so we'll get to know if we're having a boy or girl in just 2 weeks! Also anxiously hoping that we're low risk for chromosomal issues.

KOJ- Goodluck with your appointment tomorrow. Being nervous is seems to be the norm for me now. But I'm sure everything will be just fine.

Star- two weeks it's just around the corner. I know you're anxious to check on your baby.

Scooby- so happy to hear your appointment went great. So exciting you get to find out the sex of the baby early. Thank you for the update. I was told today that it was normal as well.

Afm, another appointment today! I'm so burned out on appointments now. I'm seeing a high risk doctor next Tuesday. Since I delivered my son early 7 years ago and I'm hypertensive. It's just a precautionary measure, better safe than sorry. After this next appointment I won't have another one for 4 weeks. I'll be holding my breath then

Scooby, that's good the results don't take long and finding out the gender so soon must be so exciting! Who else is finding out the gender?

October, how early was your son if you don't mind me asking? My dd was 2 weeks late and ended up being induced, I hope that doesn't happen again, put a stop to my pool birth because of all the monitoring!

October- I hear you, I was also getting super burned out on appointments! Mostly it was blood tests for me but it still meant waking up early and spending lots of time in waiting rooms. Now that I'm almost off PIO and graduated from my clinic, it's way more manageable. But I literally didn't go more than 2-3 days without being at a doctor for over 4 months! The only thing that got me through was telling myself I was doing it for the safety of the baby.

How's everyone doing today? Any new symptoms, weird cravings, etc? I haven't had too many cravings, but when I do get one I can't stop thinking about it until I eat it.
