I finally had an ultrasound today, and everything was perfect, measuring three days ahead! Such a relief.

As for labor, I love it (and I've done it four times. Lol). I used an epidural each time, although it failed with my third so I experienced all the pain with that one. Still, it's such a rush of adrenaline!

Allie, yep. And it wasn't even an OB appointment, it was just an ultrasound. I have my first OB appointment next week.

Thanks! I think I'm probably closer to 6 weeks im thinking but by lmp they said 10 weeks which is why I assuming they are getting me in right away since they go off that date until the dating scan. Just praying everything is okay! I'm super anxious to see baby and find out

Welcome, four2five.

Great news, spiffy.

That sounds horrendous Rach, arm up to the elbow. I actually feel sick thinking about it & it didn't even happen to me!

Mom, I've heard other people say similar about fast births, & also that they're a lot more painful as the pain ramps up quickly, not gradually.

I'd love to experience Labour with a live baby (I had to give birth to my son because he died so late on so I believe I could do it), but I just don't think it will work out that way for me!

Welcome four2five

Glad the ultrasound went well Spiffy.

I was in labour for ages all worth it in the end, contractions are a bit crappy but pushing is great.

My first I was in labor 36 hours, my second was 24 hours and I'm praying for 12 hours or less this time!!

It's so crazy to think about labor and things like names. For the first time last night I started looking up names. Of course I'd had some swimming around my mind but I was actually looking up baby names. For instance I love the name Amelia for a girl but it's like the 5th most popular name in the UK and we like to be a bit more unique. Granted, we don't live in the UK anymore but we will probably will again before the kids are grown.

Found baby again last night on doppler....baby runs away from the doppler, it's kind of funny but also means I only do it for a few seconds at a time. I catch the hb and then it's gone and find it in another place.

How is everyone's MS?

Ouch rach does not sound like fun!

Mom I'm with you on not feeling prepared! Although I was in labour for 27 hours the hospital wouldn't let us come in because said contractions wasn't close enough, it got so bad dh called for the umpteenth time and said we are coming now, they argued but we went and my dd was born 10 minutes after arriving at the hospital. Having had absolutely no pain relief and not happening how i imagined I went into a bit of shock and I feel that really affected the first couple of hours with dd.
This time I want to have all my active pushing in the hospital and not the majority in the back of my car!!!!

Yeah spiffy great news about your scan!!! Measuring ahead as well that's such a relief
