That was an amazing video! Awesome to see those ingrained instincts kicking in, no matter your thoughts on breastfeeding or natural birth. I will definitely try harder to get breastfeeding to work this time; hopefully it will. As for natural birth, I think it's awesome when women do it, but I desperately needed that epidural the first time, so if I need it again, so be it. Just want a healthy baby in the end.
Great u/s pics Leikela!!! So sweet. I know it's early, but I'm already guessing girl for you.
i had a stomach bug when i was 6wks. it was horrible i couldnt keep anything down or in the other way (Sorry TMI) i ended up having to go to the emergency room because it had been over 24hrs and i wasnt able to even keep fluids down. i was dehydrated so they gave me three 1000 mL bags of fluid. not fun at all. only good part about it was that was the 1st time i got to hear the babys HB.
Oh you poor, poor thing. It is such a worry isn't it? But such a relief when they say that the baby is absolutely fine. Pretty scary for the first time though!! I guess the worrying thing is the dehydration- which is what I found.
Glad that you are better now
ah in the UK it's the 12 week scan that determines your due date. I had mine changed by a week last time, only 3 days this time.
In the US (well at least for my Dr., not sure about others), the ultrasound equipment isn't present in the regular OBGYN's office. For my first one, I had to go to the Imaging Dept. For this past 12 week one, since it was a Nuchal, I went to a special lab where they specialize in what we call the "1st Trimester Ultrascreen". They analyzed my blood as well and based upon my scan and blood work, gave me my percentages of my baby having Downs and Trisomy 18/13. I even consulted with a genetic counselor afterwards that gave me all my results.
With that said, my regular OBGYN was not there to change my due date. I go for my follow up appointment on April 18th and perhaps she will change it then.
In Ontario Canada it's the same for our 12 w scan. The testing is completed if you choose to have it. The earlier scan is our dating scan , generally in the 7-8 week stage. they usually won't change your dates based on later scans as I was told at my appointment babies tend to find their own growth rate past 11 to 12 weeks, so they have found the other is more accurate. They got my last pregnancy dated right on as I went into labor the day after my due date, but was measuring earlier based on later scans.
