After scan update :-)


Hi there ladies,
So I wanted to update you on our scan visit yesterday afternoon! I was SOOO nervous ! They had told me to drink 1l of water and not pee so it was excruciating! The ultrasound tech was nice, and was trying to make me feel at ease. And on first try, there was our little bean! With a heart beating so fast I could see it with my own eyes. DH and I were so moved and I started crying! I swear little bean tried to say hi to me (the tech said the bean moved something)! Anyway, viability was confirmed and all seem well. His HB rate is 165 at 8 weeks and three days, the doctor said she was very pleased with that!
She also prescribed Diclectin for my nausea and I started taking it last night and this morning I am able to eat something! So all is well and I am over the moon!

As for the conception questions:
Where did you conceive your babes? At home, one saturday evening after too many glasses of a fabulous wine we had just received from France!!! . After an MC last summer, it took me about four months for AF to come back, and even then my cycles were all over the place. I started temping in january and in february started using OPKs. But DH didn't believe in them because he said when it happens it happens. So that weekend, my OPK was positive on Friday and then again on Sunday! We decided to ignore it and just made a lovely dinner for the two of us at home (like we do every sunday). Of course I was secretly hoping that it happens, but when my OPK still showed positive on Monday (so four full days of OPK+) I lost all hope. What a surprise to find out a few weeks later that it had happened!!
Were you planning to become pregnant? Yes, after an MC I was ready to try again! And DH too! We really needed some good news!
What did you do to celebrate your positive pregnancy test? I never know how to deal with emotions so it took me time to first realize it and then a weekend after our BFP DH and I treated ourselves to trip to beautiful place and dinner.
Do you have any preferences on gender? DH thinks it's a girl and I think it's a boy. We will find out as soon as ultrasound can tell! I am incapable of waiting full nine months! Simply can't.

Just saw this thread, nice to see a bunch of Canadian ladies here!

Where did you conceive your babes? Just at home (lame and boring)

Were you planning to become pregnant? Yes, we have been together for 12 years and thought if we want to have kids, we better start now before it's too late. So I stopped taking my birth control pills after been taking them continuously for 12 years and to my surprise we were pregnant within two months.

What did you do to celebrate your positive pregnancy test? Nothing really, took a while for it to sink in, I really didn't think it would happen so fast.

Do you have any preferences on gender? Well, we know it's a girl, but I think I would have been happy with either

Feb4th2011-that is such a great story. I totally agree that there should be some sort of "Mc" in your baby's name... and I can totally relate to it not being cold. My hubby and I lived in Saskatoon for a few years and going from that to Van Island, well, even in the middle of winter it feels like a late spring/early summer day. Good on you guys for getting the job done regardless of where it had to be.

As for us, well nothing exciting here. Baby was conceived at home after many many months of trying. I was hesitant to be too excited about my positive test after having gone through heartbreak in the past. I have no preference for gender and won't find out until birth, although another girl would probably be easier. Thanks for sharing your stories everyone. Always good to get to know the group a little better. Great idea oneteddybear.

So glad to hear you had a great scan! I went today and I know exactly what you mean about the having to pee! The tech laughed at me cause I jumped up and ran off to the bathroom with my pants undone and all the scan gel still on me. lol

As for the conception questions:
Where did you conceive your babes? We were at home too. It was St Pattys day weekend and also DHs birthday. He asked for a B-day baby so we tryed to make it happen Luck for us the OPKs were the darkest I have ever seen them in the last few months and we managed to catch an egg!
Were you planning to become pregnant? Yes. I actually started 'trying' in December before DH actually agreed to trying. I was using CM only. Obviously that didnt work and we went into Trying in Jan, then trying with OPKs in Feb, then were temping and OPking in March along with the SMEP schedule.
What did you do to celebrate your positive pregnancy test? I was testing with ICs for a few days before I did a FRER. lol I thought I saw a line on them but DH was not convinced. Silly! I finally decided to test after a long day at work when DH was outside waiting with the dogs to go for a hike. I took the test out to him and told him "See, I told you I saw a line!"
Do you have any preferences on gender? I guess just a healthy baby for us but deep down (and I know this is shallow and it actually makes me cringe to know I have these feelings) I want a boy... DH has a daughter from a previous spouse and I really want something that DH and I can have to share that his ex doesnt have. Terrible I know. I will be happy with either though and have started buying both gender stuff.

DH was so excited!! We saw a great little heartbeat and we are measuring exactly perfect! You can see the umbilical cord going toward the top of one of them too. We even got a little wiggle from Goo!

Thats sooo exciting! I can't wait to be able to hear the heartbeat! It must have been the most amazing experience!

I also was prescribed Diclectin yesterday, and it has done wonders! I felt amazing today!
