Hello ladies how are you all doing? It seems funny that when we were ttc we had so much to chat about . Now that we are “PREGNANT” we are much less talkative. I too have been guilty of not logging in much... Anyway even if you do not have a lot to talk about try to check in we still would like to here how everyone is doing. Let’s hear from you… Jessicaspatherapist, frozenfeet, angela1986, lissica, socalmom, javidsgirl, Cerendipy, CaseyB, preggoplease, karen W., and anyone else who would like to join in the conversation.

Okay so I had my very first appt. with the Obstetrician. She was very informative if not a bit of a know it all and stiff. DH and I figure we would rather have her this way that too relaxed. There are 4 female doctors in the practice. Each new appt. I will see a different doctor, as to get to know them all. My next check-up is March 22nd. I am however going in for CVS testing on March 8th. Dh and I decided to do this based on our advanced ages (I’m 37 he is 41). BTW I was surprised when the doctor said that since I am having twins I should treat this pregnancy as if I was a 39 year old.(WHT) Anyway we are doing the CVS so we will feel better informed. There is the chance of miscarriage so I am glad DH will be holding my hand the entire time. I know I will be a nervous wreck that day. Has anyone else had this test done? How did it go for you?

morning girls! hey hapi, i haven't had that test done, so good luck! the office that i go to also have 4 docs and i see one each time i go and i also see a nurse midwife every other visit. my ultrasound is tomorrow and i'm really nervous, i could hardly sleep last night! i guess i'm afraid that one of us will be dissapointed with the s_x of the baby. i know i'll love whatever i have, its just hard to think about bonding with a male child (i have no brothers and didn't have a "father" until i was 5.) But dh promised we could go out and by some baby clothes after the appointment so that will get me excited! so here's to hoping that my little one will show his/her privates to the ultrasound tech!!!

Jessica - You made me smile. That is just so wonderful you will be finding out the s_x of you little one. I feel that it will help you bond even quicker once you know. I'm positive you will bond just as well with a boy, because he will be all yours! Going to buy baby clothes is a great way to celebrate finding out what the s_x is. I think I will suggest that to my dh. Good luck tomorrow!

Hapi..i hope everything goes smoothly for you during the testing. I would be a nervous wreck as well. Dh and me won't be doing that testing. The nurse we saw said we were low risk so i'm not going to think about it. Jessica..i can't believe you will be finding out the s_x already. Wow time has flown! I'm sure whatever the outcome..shopping for some cute clothes will make you feel better. I have my first OB appt on march 8th and i just found out the OB is a man so hopefully things will be alright. I wonder if he will try to hear the heart?I will be 9 1/2 wks by then!! My appet_te has decreased finally. A bit more m/s but can't complain. Just still so happy to be a future mom!

lissica :) march 8 is my next ob appointment too! i don't have any male doctors and i'm kind of glad, but it would be okay if i did. one of my docs is about 8 months pregnant, i felt like such a baby complaining about my back pain when she was this little tiny lady with a huge pregnant belly and she was comforting me! lol.....i bet they will try to find a heartbeat or do a v____al ultrasound...so you can at least see or hear something. (by the way, march 8 is also the day before my 28th bday!....i'll be 20 weeks on my bday). hapi, i would be a nervous wreck about that test also, but luckily you'll have dh right by your side like you said, not like the olden days where the man wasn't involved in any part of the pregnancy or birth. and you're right, i will absolutely ADORE my baby wether its a boy or a girl....its just so exciting!

March 8th is when I'm having my CVS Testing done! lissica - I'm not sure if you can hear the heartbeat this early (does anyone else know for sure). But you should be able to “See” the heart beating. I first saw the twin’s hearts beating at 7 weeks. It was simply amazing. Enjoy it! And in the excitement make sure you get a picture of your ultra sound. Jessica- Very cute about the doctor at 8 months comforting you.

 

lissica - February 21

opps sorry i'm such an idiot!!! I brought back that old thread wondering where you all were. lol I was like."wow no one has been on for 3days!" sigh..must be the pregnant thing..i hope!

 

jessicaspatherapist - February 21

ITS A BOY!!!!!!!!!! and this little one likes to move around, kick, punch and yawn....such a cool experience! you all should've seen the smile on DH's face....priceless!!!!!

 

Megs - February 22

This is officially SAD! I have to venture over here to check up on you ladies?? Haha! YEAH Jessica for a BOY!!!!!!!! That's SO neat! Got any pictures to post???? Rebecca, You'd better update on the CVS testing... I'm sure, with all three of you having appts on March 8th, we'll have LOTS of news!!! Lissica, have not heard from you in AGES! Glad things are going well and you're considered low risk. :-) This is weird... i'm posting onthe first TRI board! LOL Maybe it'll bring some good luck? Haha. Some come over and chat with us in the TWW still... LOL

ooohhh kay!! Hello ladies! How is everyone feeling? Jessica- Congrats on the bouncing baby boy!!! I know for sure my husband wants a boy first time around! He'll be in the delivery room with helmets, bats, b___s, hockey gloves, shin pads on and whatever else he can fit...going...."well??!!". Either way, I'm sure he'll be happy. We aren't finding out the s_x...we love suprises! Hapi - best of luck to you on this test you are having done. I never would have guessed you and your dh were in your later 30's / early 40's!! I thought by your pictures...you were like 28/29 years old!!! How are the beans doing? Lissica - congrats on being low risk! I was deemed low risk as well! It's a great feeling but not as good as it will feel to get that first appt. and u/s under our belts. I did have all of my blood work done last week and my numbers were nice and high where they were supposed to be and low where they were supposed to be. The only concernd was my thyroid was a bit hyperactive. It explains a lot though, starving all the time, rapid heartbeat, hot skin, fatigue...etc. Anyhow, my first prenatal is on Monday....they will recheck my thryoid then. I hope to listen for the heartbeat and I think that I might request an U/S....I really hope that they'll give me one if we can't hear the heartbeat with the doppler. I'll be 9 weeks on monday...so...it might be to early to hear the heartbeat yet with a doppler. I'm sure you are really looking forward to your first appt.!! The 8th..right?? Have you ladies heard from Cerendipy??? I wonder how she is doing? Well, cerendipy, if you are out there.....check in with us and let us know what's up. Don't work to hard! Have a wonderful day ladies!

 

jessicaspatherapist - February 22

hey frozen, good luck on monday! definitely request an ultrasound!!! s80.photobucket.com/albums/j196/healingfeeling/ultrasound%20photos/ here's some pics and don't forget to take out the dashes. also, according to the ultrasound tech he weighed 7 ounces and his heart rate was 148 beats per minute. HEY MEGS...sending you some babydust!!!

 

frozenfeet - February 22

Wow jessica - those pics are amazing!! Congrats to you! I think that I might ask for an u/s but typically, they don't do one until the 14th week so I'm doubtful that they'll do one! Here's to hoping!

 

CaseyB - February 22

Congrats Jessica on having a Boy! Your ultrasound pics are amazing!

 

hapistuff - February 22

Jessica…Oh my, I am so excited for you -a BOY! Did you and dh go out and get a few new things for the little fellow? For some reason I am unable to open the site to see your pictures – Hmm. Megs…You are always welcome here! Frozen…Thanks for the compliment, but we are a couple old farts. Do let us know what happens at your first prenatal appt. on Monday. Lissica…How have you been feeling this week? CaseyB...How are you? I'm sorry I have not gotten back to you regarding your e-mail. I have the vitamins at home and keep forgetting to send you the name brand when I am there. I promise I will send you the info soon.

Get this ladies. Last week I was eating some bread and a piece of one of my back teeth broke off. I went to my dentist the next day and low and behold I have been grinding my teeth throught-out the day and that three of my other teeth are cracked. BTW I only used to grind them at night and have worn a night guard for the last year. He repaired the broken one but would not fix the others until after I deliver. So now I have to wear a bite plate all day. I thought I have been handling my stress during the pregnancy so well, only to find out that I haven’t been dealing well at all. So here is a visual: 37 year old female, with much needed highlights to hair, looking a little over weight, bad complextion do to pregnancy and to top that off a plastic night bite-guard that must be worn all day. My husband must really love me more for my personality right now. LOL

 

CaseyB - February 22

Hapi - too funny! No problem about the email - I am just unsure what to buy for Omega 3, I don't want to over do it or buy the wrong kind. I am feeling much better though. With the exception of last night my ms is starting to decrease. I am anxiously waiting for my next appointment as we should hopefully be able to hear the heartbeat. Hi Megs - your right in the middle of ovulating now right?
