Kitty - I’m sure over time your 5 year old will come around. A new sibling is a huge change and I can imagine the emotions of wanting it and then not wanting it are totally normal.

LAR - I’m sorry you’re still getting sick. :/ I hope it goes away completely soon! I’m also feeling a bit anxious since we haven’t seen the baby since 12 weeks but I keep reminding myself that in the second trimester it’s very unlikely that anything terrible will happen.

AFM - we took the kiddos on a mini weekend vacation this weekend and I am exhausted. We all are. We’re having a great time and doing a lot of activities but being pregnant and walking as much as I have been is not the best combination. The kids are having such a good time though and the weather has been amazing. We have our anatomy scan next Wednesday and I can’t wait! I haven’t seen this munchkin in 6 weeks and I’m dying to get a good look at him again. I use my Doppler sometimes if I’m feeling really stressed about anything and need reassurance but overall I haven’t used it that much. I’m almost always able to feel him moving around when I lay down which is really comforting. He’s super active right now but I’m laying down very calm after walking around all day. No more nasty pregnancy symptoms here but my boobs (sorry TMI) have grown off the charts this week!

Glad you girls are doing well!

Ash there is no such thing as TMI on bnb! My boobs are also getting huge...well huger, I’m already a DD. I haven’t had to buy new bras yet, but it’s coming I’m sure.

I’ve been feeling anxiety too, we heard the heart beat at our 16 week appt but that feels like a long time ago! I am starting to show, but I can mostly still disguise it with loose fitting tops. I *think* I felt movement for the first time this weekend! Once on Friday night when I was lying in bed and then on Saturday while I was at a conference. It was in the same place on the right both times, and it just felt like a little “pop”. Not sure how else to describe it! Our anatomy scan is on Tuesday, so just 2 more sleeps! I’m so excited to see our little one again!

Kitty, my lo is excited but I worry about how sheís going to respond once baby is here.

Lar, sorry youíre still getting sick. But youíre not alone, I still get sick occasionally if Iím not careful about what I eat. My body responds so much better to fruit and a lot of leafy greens.

Ash, haha about your (.)(.) Iíve always been heavy chested but this time Iím grateful that they havenít grown. I donít think I could handle anything bigger than the F cup that I am. Thatís nice that you were able to get away and glad everyone enjoyed themselves. How exciting for your anatomy scan!!

Wishn, yay for feeling movement and your upcoming scan! Will you be finding out the gender?

My anatomy scan is in another 1.5 weeks. Iíve been feeling movement daily so thatís been reassuring over the last 3 weeks since I saw my doctor last and heard the heartbeat. My pregnancy is only noticeable in my fitted maternity or workout clothes. Today Iím wearing a flow-y top and you canít tell at all. Iím 18.5 weeks and canít believe Iím almost at the half way point already!

I have pretty small boobs (a B cup) so having them grow during pregnancy is so fun for me, but weird because they look so different!

Wish - I always describe the babies movements as a "pop". Like popcorn I love it! I've been feeling him move a lot more lately, even when I'm not laying down which is nice.

nogreater - I also can't believe I'm almost to the halfway point, it goes so fast over the big picture. Daily it feels like it's taking forever though! Good luck at your anatomy scan

Our anatomy scan went great today! Baby was so cute, moving around a lot, and waving at us, but she was still able to get all the pictures she needed and everything looks good. Weíll get the official report next week. Crazy to think the babe was moving that much and yet I felt nothing! She told us to close our eyes at one point since we donít want to know the sex. The baby is big for 19w4d, already 12 oz! I hope that doesnít mean Iím going to have a 10 pounder! Thinking I should start watching my sugar intake.

Hey guys, baby and I had our scan yesterday and we found a 2 vessel cord. Baby also was only 1-2 days ahead. My older two were like a week and one was 10 days ahead at this point, so I think I may see some growth concerns later with the cord. Oddly, DH also had a 2 vessel cord, but he's a twin.

azure - sorry t hear about the two vessel cord. I know a ton of babies who had the 2 vessel cord and they are on the smaller side but still healthy as can be

AFM - I had my anatomy scan yesterday at 19 weeks and the baby is super healthy! He's measuring 19w5d and was moving so much. He keeps me up almost every night from 9pm - 1am which I've read is normal but quite irritating when I'm exhausted. They also performed a fetal echocardiogram because he's a baby conceived from IVF and it's standard protocol. Heart is beautiful and working properly. I am so so happy and just can't wait to meet this little stinker. We're pretty set on the name Maxwell. How is everyone else doing? I've started to buy things here and there but since I've already had a boy have a lot of what I need already.
