Can I join you?! I'll be 38 in January and pregnant through ICSI with number 2.
I've been very cautiously PUPO until we saw the heartbeat at the scan on Thursday so now I'm throwing all caution to the wind and joining in the pregnancy threads - yay!
We're undecided about finding out the sex yet but due 25th June 2012.
I can't beleive your 20 weeks already I remember you from the TTC forums.
How are you feeling ?
Truely, The only testing I have had is a MW appt and U/S at 6 weeks ( mine was so early because I had a TR back in '08 and we wory about a tubal pregnancy since I only have one tube)
I had another MW appt at 10 weeks, they did bloods then.
My next appt is at 16 weeks..
Here in Canada you usually have a appt every 4-6 weeks till 32 weeks then every other week till 36 weeks then it is every week till birth.
We also have a 20 week U/S and nothing else if everything seems okay.
I opted not to do any "extra" testing due to my age.. amnio ect...
They won't tell you the sex of the baby at the U/S which is done in our local hospital so we are having a pvt scan done on Dec 3rd.. plus we plan on doing a 3D /4D U/S around 26 weeks ( same as we did with our last daughter)
Thanks I think you remember me from first Tri though, as I wasn't on the TTC board This one was a TOTAL suprise! LOL.
It's the same here in the US...every 4 wks we see the MW or Dr, have u/s a few times, unless there are problems. My next u/s will be on Dec 7th, and that's a 'just because' quick look my MW likes to do which is totally fine with me.
I, too, decided against any special screenings cause of my age.
That's why I like using a MW ( which is fairly new here) I didn't feel pressured to do any testing except they " advises me" to do a glucose test at 26 weeks because my last baby was drasticly ( 9lbs 10oz) larger than my other children.
I did suffer with my pelvic bone in my last pregnancy also so I will be fitted with a brace early on ( 20 weeks or so) so we can lighten the pain I went through last time.
I haven't bought many things when it comes to clothing.
My last pregnancy I got away with wearing yoga pants and xl shirts. I did buy a nice pair of dress pants and two dressy type shirts.
I am a SAHM, so I can get away with a min. wardrobe.
Welcome Mellybelle and congratualtions on being on team blue.
How are you doing ?
So far so good. Apart from some round ligament pain when I'm on my feet for too long i've got no pregnancy complaints.
I did get infected with whooping cough a few weeks ago and that has driven me crazy with the constant coughing. I have so far managed not to pee myself but my pelvic floor muscles have been getting a big workout. Cough is easing way off now, but its been 7 weeks of coughing.
Did every one know the immunisation for whooping cough only lasts 10 years. I didnt know or i'd have had a booster shot.
