michelle - December 12

Justine good luck at the docs - I too am orignally from snow babies - em invited us. look forward to getting to know all you bfp's and us trying for a bfp.

 

Justine - December 12

Welcome Michelle. I read some of 'snow babies' during the crazy time of the imposters!!! Hope you're all settled down there now. My drs appointment was originally for Friday but I was too impatient to wait so I brought it forward. How long have you been ttc?

 

Emily - December 12

Hi Justine, hope the drs app goes well. You will have to keep us updated. Hi Michelle gald you could drop in. I loved your pic on yahoo, so sute! I hope no one minded me inviting the snow babies to join us. I hated that this site had gotten so out of hand. I am gald the reg is up and running though. Anyway how is everyone feeling? Any af yet Michelle? I tested neg at 11 dpo and got my bfp at 13 dpo. I am now in my 2nd trimester! Such a relief. Will be even more of one after we hear the heart beat tomorrow....Can't wait. I am still feeling pretty good. I am glad a lto of the orignal gals are back. How is everyone?

 

michelle - December 12

No Af yet Em - hopefully that is good news. i do have a question for you preggos though. when you and dh bd. does it feel more sensitive in there, kind of felt like he was hitting my ovaries.-lol? I am still having the ewcm.

 

nikki - December 12

I AM FROM SNOW BABIES TOO. THANKS FOR THE INVITE, EM. HOPE TO GET TO KNOW ALL OF YOU!

 

Emily - December 12

Michelle after I found out I was pregos again, it was a little sensitive, but I think it may have been since I was tensing up. See when I had my m/c, we bd a day or two beofre I started spottting. It was painful. Sorry tmi but I think he was hitting my cervix. When I started spotting of course it was the weekend and my ob wasn't in, so I called my GP. She said not to worry too much, as ling as it wasn't red. Drink lots of water and rest. So I did. Then on Sunday it was worse. Still only pink and when I wiped but more often. I called my ob on call number. The doc that was on call was not my ob. She told me not to worry wither. Told em to go in Monday to see my doc and get an u/s. The u/s showed no fetal heatbeat. My dh and I were so upset. We went through the list of I wonder if we shouldn't have.....Well we mentioned the bd episode and he said not to worry, the baby was probably already gone, and my body was getting ready to do its thing. It just took it awhile, so we had to get a D&C. I didn't want to do it casue I was hoping he was wrong, silly I know, but I felt much better for a while emotionally afterwards. That is until I had to go back to work and see a bunch of people that dint' really know what was going on. But anyway back to the point, I was a little nervous about bd again once I found out I was preg again. But I didn't notice anything before I found out, just after, so I think it must have been in my mind! I hope you get your bfp! I was 23 when I got preg w/ my dd. I turned 24 shortly after. I was 25 when I got preg w/ my m/c and this one. I will be 26 on Friday. It only took me four month off bc to get preg the first time. If I didn't get prego that last month, I was going to start worrying, casue that is what I do....) Ha, how silly I was. I know now I was very lucky it only took four months. My doc says me and dh are fertile. We got preg on the pill the 2nd time and after only tow months the third! Anyway, sorry to ramble on. I have to get myself motivated to get some work done. I will check back later....

 

michelle - December 12

thanks emily - it isn't painful at all - it was actually quit good. I just couldn't believe how diff it felt. - i have no sign of any pms. and i dont know how to check my cervix to see if it is high or low.

 

Justine - December 12

Hey snow babies ladies i've just checked out your lovely pics on the yahoo site. i don't know who mentioned that her dh didn't want her to post pics but mine is like that too. so when i get around to it, it'll just be me as dh is too shy...lol! michelle - i gave up with the whole cervix checking thing as i didn't know what i was looking for or where it was supposed to be! fortunately the opks and ewcm checking methods worked just fine on their own. em - what can i expect to happen at the drs today?

 

Carrie - December 12

Hello ladies! Hope everyone is doing good. Em - that is great news! The 2nd Trimester...yay!!! I hope you can relax a little knowing you're past that scary timeframe. Justine - I'm sorry that you're sick but at least you know baby's healthy. Well, I didn't get much done yesterday, just got M&M cookies done and the dough for the C'mas cutout cookies done. My os showed up and my ys showed up too, so all three of us girls were making goodies. My ys wants to join us again today, I have to pick her up on my way to our parents. Yesterday I wasn't feeling good in the morning, 2am. Early this morning, 8am, I was awaken with stomach pains..or pains in that area. I was still so tired I'm not quite sure of the exact area. lol But I know that it hurt and it woke me up! Then there was more discomfort just a bit ago (10am) and I'm not feeling the greatest but that could be because I haven't eaten breakfast yet and I'm hungry. Dh made these sausage sandwiches (micorwaved) and he put them in front of me to smell....omg! my stomach just about turned at the smell! I don't think it's anything to do with pregnancy it's just I didn't care for the sandwiches in the first place. *Owie* more discomfort....geez, i thought it was gas but this does not feel like gas. Well, I've got to get going and pick up my ys and then we're meeting our os over there. Want to get most of the baking done today while Trev is in school...he was just a pain in the b___t yesterday! i know he wanted to help but he was just getting in the way instead, plus his attention span is that of a fly! lol Well, I've really got to get going. Take care all!

 

kristen - December 12

Hey just wanted to pop in and say hi, i still have not gotten AF i am guessing this is a good sign until proven otherwise...i think i might test tis weekend mayb the last test i took was on Dec. 5th when i wuld have been around 2w late right?? mayb my body is just slow in producing Hcg.....anyone else have this problem ....it is really fustrating....

 

Emily - December 12

Justine, most likely your doc will do a urine a___lysis, and blood work, although sometimes that isn't doen until the 2nd appointment. It really depends on the doc. Also id you haven't had a pap done recently, he or she will most likely do one of those. Mine told me that I may bleed a bit at the site, but not to worry as long as it wasn't w/ cramps. I did not have one done w/ Mary since I saw him in Dec and just had one done in July. I did have one w/ the m/c and of couse since I just had that one, not one this last time. Also a lot of medical history stuff. I had not been to him before with Mary and he needed all that kind of stuff. Then I hadn't seen him since my six week post pardum with Mary so when I went in w/ the 2nd baby, I had to update all that info. Then he told us what to expect durring the pregnancy and his policies and procedures and I got a goodie bag with perg magizines, baby magizines, free samples, info on the clinic, info on the hospital, a list of things to avoid, things to call the doc over and what not... He also checked for Mary's heartbeat at her first appointment. Couldnt' hear it though, so witht eh 2nd he didn't. And of course sinve I had athe m/c and was freaked out about it happening again he did an u/s with this one, but that isn't normal. Anyway, I think that is about it. Besides the blood work and the pap and the urine, it is mainly jsut talking and answering any questions....Carrie have fun with the cookies.....

 

Emily - December 12

Kristen, I have never had that problem, but I know that my sis who is a nurse said that some woman never test positive on a urine test. As much as 10% of tehm don't, even when they are like 4 or 5 months pregnant. I also know some woman it takes a while to get a pos result on a urine test, like weeks and weeks. I personally never had that problem. Good luck and keep us updated. How long have you been ttc? Were you on b/c pills? Sometimes that can mess up your cycles....

 

Emily - December 12

Justien, Ifound this on baby center. My doc didn't do all of these, but this should cover most of what could happen at your first visit.... As soon as you suspect you're pregnant, schedule an appointment with your doctor or midwife. (If you haven't chosen a pract_tioner yet, this is the time to find one!) Even if you've confirmed your suspicion with a home pregnancy test, it's wise to follow up with a professional physical examination so you can begin getting good prenatal care. Most pract_tioners won't want to see you until you're about 8 weeks pregnant, unless you have a medical condition, have had problems with a pregnancy in the past, or are having problems now such as v____al bleeding, abdominal pain, or severe nausea and vomiting. Also, if you're taking any medications or think you may have been exposed to hazardous substances, ask to speak to the doctor or midwife as soon as possible. Your first visit will probably be the longest one you have with your caregiver, unless you encounter problems along the way. For all your prenatal checkups, come prepared with questions regarding anything you might be wondering about. Here's what you can expect your doctor or midwife to do this time: Take your health history She'll want to know the day your last period started on, so she can determine your due date; any symptoms or problems you've had since then; whether your menstrual cycles are regular and how long they usually last; details about any gynecological problems (including s_xually transmitted infections) you or your partner has now or had in the past. She'll also want details about any previous pregnancies. She'll review the rest of your medical history as well, including chronic conditions and medications used to treat them, drug allergies, psychiatric problems, and any past surgeries or hospitalizations. And she'll ask you about activities such as smoking, drinking, and drug use that could affect your pregnancy. Take your family health history Your pract_tioner will ask if any of your relatives or your baby's father or his relatives have had any chronic or serious diseases. Many health problems are at least partly hereditary, so knowing your family's medical history helps your healthcare provider watch for potential problems. Do a genetic and birth defect history She'll ask if you, the baby's father, or anyone else in the family has a chromosomal or genetic disorder or was born with a structural birth defect. She'll want to know about all the medications and nutritional supplements you've taken since your last period, about any exposures to potential toxins (bring a list of possible "suspects," especially if you live or work near toxic materials), and whether you've recently had any rashes, or viruses or other infections. If you're going to be 35 or older on your due date or you have other risk factors for genetic problems, your pract_tioner will talk to you about genetic counseling and genetic testing. Check you out and run some tests Your pract_tioner will give you a thorough physical, including a pelvic exam. She'll do a Pap smear (unless you've had one recently) to check for abnormal cells, including cervical cancer. She may also do a culture to check for chlamydia and gonorrhea. Next, she'll order routine blood tests to identify your blood type and Rh status, and a blood count to check for anemia. She'll also have the lab test your blood for syphilis, hepat_tis B, and immunity to German measles (rubella), and offer to test for HIV. (If your pract_tioner doesn't offer you an HIV test, be sure to ask about it. Being treated for HIV during pregnancy can dramatically reduce your chances of pa__sing the infection to your baby.) In addition to taking blood, she'll ask for a urine sample to test for urinary tract infections and other conditions. If you're at high risk for gestational diabetes, a glucose challenge test might be done at your first visit. In some cases, your provider will also do a skin test to see if you've been exposed to tuberculosis. And if you're not sure whether you've even had chicken pox (or been vaccinated against the virus), she'll order a blood test to check for immunity. Counsel you and let you know what's coming Before you leave, your caregiver should give you advice about eating well, foods to avoid, and what kind of weight gain to expect; describe the common discomforts of early pregnancy; talk about the benefits of getting a flu shot (if it's flu season); and warn you about symptoms that require immediate attention. She'll also talk to you about the dangers of smoking, toxoplasmosis. She should ask you about domestic violence — whether you are or have ever been a victim of abuse. Tell you about your options for prenatal testing. Your pract_tioner may offer you genetic screening tests that can give you some information about your baby's risk of having certain chromosomal problems and other birth defects. During your first trimester, you may be offered a nuchal translucency screening (an ultrasound done at 10 to 12 weeks) or a first-trimester combined screening (an ultrasound and a blood test). Or you may decide to wait and have a multiple marker screening (a blood test done between 15 and 20 weeks). If you'll be 35 or older on your due date or are otherwise at high risk for having a baby with genetic problems, you may be offered genetic diagnostic tests that can tell you for sure if your baby has Down syndrome and other problems. These include CVS, done between 10 and 13 weeks, and amniocentesis, done between 15 and 20 weeks. Finally, depending on your ethnic background and medical history, you may have a blood test to see if your baby is at risk for sickle cell disease, Tay-Sachs disease, cystic fibrosis, thala__semia, and certain other genetic disorders.

Em - thanks for the info. it doesn't sound too scary so i think i can cope with all of that...lol! Carrie - it sounds like you have another busy day today with all your baking. I so miss not having my sisters around me as I'm really close with both of them and it's hard them being so far away. Em - that is weird why some women don't test positive on a hpt when they're pg, I wonder why that happens? Kristen - keep us informed with what's going on with you and let's hope that you fall into that 10% group. Jessica - are you around today?

 

Justine - December 12

Em - thanks for the extra info. it was very helpful. i guess i could be in there for quite awhile today then as this seems like it's the longest appointment. are you excited about your u/s tomorrow?
