i have my first ultrasound in 2 weeks. I don't think I will get a lot of testing done. I know I am in the age bracket for high risk for Downs but meh, I don't really care. I know that sounds cold but I won't abort if he/she does have downs so there really is no point. I worried and fretted and obsessed enough over the TTC numbers, I don't need more. If the baby is fine and heart is beating strong that is all that matters to me. I'll go for the 12 week scan but no amnio or anything like that. And we have the 20 week scan in December (I am hoping to get it done on Dec 22 for a special Christmas gender reveal).
Congrats you!! How very exciting for you, you and your husband must be over joyed!! I too have opted out of testing like you said as long as the scans don't show any defects and the heart beats strong then I am good. Keep us posted on your 12 week scan, love to hear and or see how the baby is growing!! How are things going right now for you any symptoms?

8+ weekl appt yeasterday update


Well ladies all is well, I thought at 8 weeks I would get to hear the heartbeat but sadly no they told me at my 13 week sono, which I can't remember from my last child. So this time I just had an internal check with some cultures done and I set my future appointments. I go Sept 30th for a sono and they will make sure all things are present and make sure I am progressing right and on Nov 12 I will have my gender sono!! Again I am going to vent about the next 4 weeks being so annoying as I really need proof of life, my only symptoms are soar boobs!!! Hope you all are doing well. I am going away for a long weekend so I might not be back on until Monday or Tuesday!!

Right now I still get on and off cramping but most of it has gone away. I had a load of symptoms start at 3DPO. I was feverish/flushed, tingly, oily skin and my allergies went crazy. I knew I was pregnant. Some thought I was getting the flu. lol Most have tailored off. My boobs are heavier (even hubby noticed), some tingles in the boob area but they don't hurt. I am not sure what to expect in the boob area because I had a reduction when I was 18. We had no idea how that would have affected anything until I got pregnant. So far it's been pretty mild. Although there are times when my nipples stay hard. That's annoying lol and the baby doesn't like chocolate. Gives me nasty heartburn. I've had 2 bouts of nausea so I am hoping that stays mild.

I can't wait for my first scan. Just to see the heartbeat. I'm hoping to get pictures. I will be 21 weeks on December 22 so I am hoping that we will get to see the gender. I have a big reveal planned for the family on Christmas day. Everyone thinks we are waiting until the birth but we want to know.

Hi ladies!

Though I'm not technically over 35 yet (my 35th bday is this weekend), and I'm actually due at the end of March and not April, I am definitely concerned about this whole AMA thing and hope that you will all welcome me here anyway.

This is our first after nearly a year of trying and 1 miscarriage in June. Since I wasn't yet 35, my doctor would joke that our 1 year of trying (and thus time to be referred to a fertility specialist) would coincide with my 35th bday. Thankfully we ended up not needing any extra treatment, just more careful follow-ups for my thyroid.

I have my first scan next week (12 weeks) and am both excited and nervous. We're doing the NT-testing and the accompanying blood work, but are not opting for the NIPT (Harmony/Panorama) because it isn't covered by our insurance and the province only covers it for moms 40+. Hopefully all is well with baby... it's what I keep telling myself every time I'm nauseous or throw up... which has become more often since weeks 9-10.

May I join you? I just turned 38 and am due in April with #2. My daughter just turned 2. We tried for over a year and used IUI to conceive. I haven't thought about testing yet, but we won't due amnio or anything too invasive. I heard there is a new early blood test that can also tell gender? We will find out the gender but I liked seeing it on the 20 week scan with my daughter, not on a sheet of paper.

I'm Canadian too (from Ontario) but now live in North Carolina!
