Glad all is well with everyone! I had an appt today, and they just listened to the hb and it was 158-160, so all was well! I go back in 3 weeks for the measurement u/s and for the quad screen bloodwork. I'm now 13wks2days today. I'm still very sleepy and tired, but hope that goes away soon! I'm feeling the stretching, crampiness now......growing pains! Have a great weekend everybody!
I haven't posted in almost a month! Where has the time gone?? I've been busy with DS, work, and everyday life. All is well. We had an ob appt this week. It went well. No ultrasound, but the heartbeat sounded great. We go for the level 2 scan mid-December.
Oh-at our 13 week NT scan the doctor said he thinks we are having a girl!! It was still early to tell, but he'll confirm it in December. We are very happy to have a healthy baby-boy or girl, but are very excited at the thought of one of each. : )
I'm going to put up a 2nd post with our dates so we can update it/add to the list as more May Moms join in.
Hi everyone, I am new to healthboards, only posted once before.
I too am a May mommy. Due date: 5/28/2010
I have a question to ask. I went to my 1st trimester screening on Friday and the genetic doc was out sick, so they sent my ultrasound to another doc and before I left they sat me down to talk to this lady over the phone. She said the NT results were 3.1mm, for my age (24) and due date it should be more like 2.8mm but normal is 3mm, she said if it were something to worry about like downs it would be 5-6mm. So she wants me to do more tests but I have this feeling like its only .3mm off from "my" normal and .1mm off from "normal" so that cant be to much to worry about right?? Also this is not my regular doc i was referred to them by my doc since they do not offer the screening in house.
This is my 1st pregnancy and I feel so clueless for some reason. Thanks for any help my husband and I dont want to worry to much.
I don't think there is any cause for worry. Doctors like to take precautions just in case. But I would say if it was 3.1 and not any where near the 5 or 6 that you're fine. Like I said doctors do like to be cautious.
I had to have genetic screening because I'm 36 and it had me SO stressed out but it turns out that I have as much chance (after being tested) of having a baby with downs as a 20 year old. (surprised me) It took them 2 weeks to get me those results so I got to sit for 2 weeks worrying myself.
Welcome to the group! I'm so glad to see another May mommy, there aren't that many of us so I get stupid excited when we get a new one. The more the merrier right? lol
But yeah, don't worry , its more than likely just a doctor precaution.
So I let my curiosity get the best of me and decided for giggles to get one of those intelligender gender prediction kits. It said girl. I still think its a boy. lol. Anyone ever done one of those and had it been accurate? So now the hubby and I are placing bets on whether its right or wrong.
I haven't ever did it, but plan to get one soon! I did have a woman on ebay to predict and she predicted this one was a boy. Ha! We'll see......I'm doubting that one! She said she calculated with 94% that it was going to be a boy! I will let you know when I do the intelligender though!
I was thinking about going to get a 3D/4D u/s done here in a couple of weeks sometime after 15 weeks which would be next Friday and finding out if the ol intelligender was right or not either way I'd like to know before Xmas so that I can tell the fam. My husband would be THRILLED if we have a girl like it said but I still think its a boy. lol. Plus if I'm right he has to buy me new bedding. lol.
I'm doing pretty good! Most of my extreme nausea has said good-bye, but I was really bad Monday night, but I think it might have been a touch of a virus. Smells still really gag me. As far as actually "feeling" pregnant, most days I don't. That worries me sometimes. I hope baby is growing like he/she should be. I have my 16wk u/s next Friday 12/4. How about everyone else......do you all "feel" pregnant? I don't have much crampiness either. Maybe b/c this is the 4th pregnancy and I'm in the 2nd trimester?
I know what you mean by not "feeling" pregnant. Sometimes I feel that way except when I go to sleep. Then , well then it becomes more apparent.
I have had the WORST heartburn lately. If that isn't a reminder that I am then I don't know what is. lol. Glad to hear from you.
Just checking in on everyone! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! How are you all feeling? I know what you mean Lisek by the heartburn. gggrrrr...........mine never went away from last pregnancy, following along is the acid reflux! I don't feel much stretching or crampiness now. I have a doc appt this Friday, 12/4, and they will be doing an u/s for measurements. I can't wait to see my little one in there. I would love to hear from you all!!
My thanksgiving was good. the rest of my week, well it wasn't all it should have been. I got to go not once but twice to the ER, once for my oh so lovely migraines and today for food poisoning. My little bugger is fine though as far as I know. Thank god for that. I go see my dr on the 11th for a check up and lucky me, a colposcopy because I had abnormal cells on my last pap. That should be thrilling. I'm not freaked out though , i'm sure it was just one of those things, I've had one before. I might see my dr before then because of my lovely trips to the er this week. We'll see on monday. er uh tomorrow.
My heartburn has been outrageous this time around.
well ladies. I hope all is well with you all.
Hello again everyone. I got my results back from my NT scan the genetics doc said no worries she didnít seem concerned I am going back to them for my 18 week ultrasound on Dec 28th, I couldnít get in before Christmas cause technically I am not 18 weeks until Christmas day. Oh Well I can wait.
Another question since again this is all new and confusing for me. I went to my doc for my 2nd appointment and I have not gained any weight and have not had any morning sickness, I feel like I am snacking all the time and I am starting to show a belly but nothing to noticeable. My doctor told me I have to gain 1 or 2 pounds before my next visit but whenever I weigh myself at home I am not gaining anything. Ugh what can I do?? Maybe I can wear some weights in my pockets haha jk
