Hey Ladies!

I've been awful about getting on here. As an update on my friend, she ended up needing a D&C. I felt so bad for everything she's been going through. I sent her some things to hopefully help, but we all know time just needs to happen. She'll get her rainbow.

AFM, feeling so much better, only took me till the halfway point. Keeping active has been a life saver. I try and do 30mins almost everyday, but I definitely give myself reprieves from that. Next appointment is next Wednesday for my monthly scan and regular OB appointment. I can't believe how quickly this pregnancy seems to be going.

Stephanie--I've been bad about checking-in too. I am so sorry to hear about your friend!

How is everyone?

AFM I am 18 weeks and feeling good. Staying very active (walking on average 4 miles/day.) Have my anatomy scan at 19w4d on May 8th. Little nervous, because I don't feel like he's growing.

Hey everyone.
SMS- so sorry about your friend.

Not much to report here. 26w and overall feeling Well. Biggest complaints are heartburn and feeling tired every so often but I’m also painting the house and chasing two. So busy. Trying to get these rennos done before the baby comes woohooo.

Hi all!

SMS - so sorry to hear about what your friend is going through. No words ever help, but I know you are being there for her and that helps a lot! :hugs:

History - what makes you think baby isn't growing? Being active is great!

Star - I so look forward to getting my energy back! I have zero and it's so sad. My brain says work out, clean, whatever and my body says NNNEEEEWWWWWP! :rofl: I am also chasing two toddlers and man they wear ya out. Love it though!

Hope everyone else is well. Does anyone talk to KeepTrying? I would love to know how she and baby are.

All good over here! Looking forward to ultrasound and blood draw for genetic testing on the 15th. My in-laws will be here to visit on the 26th so hoping to have the results by then!

:grouphug:

Lindsey-I just thought that maybe he wasn't, because I hadn't gained any weight. I have been very active though, and I am eating healthier than normal. Come to find out he's growing just fine :)

Baby James looked great today. He measured 11oz and they said he's in the 64th percentile :) I found out that I currently have placenta previa though. They said my placenta could be pulled up and off my cervix as my uterus grows. Praying!!! They will check again at 28 weeks.

Glad to see everyone is doing well!!!

Oh yeah I wouldn't worry about placenta previa at this stage - I had it early on with both mine and it grew away from the cervix by the anatomy scan.

Glad to hear baby James is doing well and so are you! All good over here, just waiting for my appointment next week. :)

Quick update - blighted ovum discovered at ultrasound today. D&C coming soon, and we won't be TTC again until we get to Australia next June-ish.

Hope everyone is well. :)

Girl, what a bummer. I hope you're doing ok. You'll have to keep in touch so we know how things go.

D&C scheduled for tomorrow morning. Our timetable for Australia has opened up now though, so that's a positive. We can go as early as this fall or this coming December/January. :)

Looking forward to trying again, but the priority now is getting the family to a better place first!

Hi y'all - the board slowed down for awhile and I quit checking in. Hopefully I can do a better job

Steph-- so sorry about your friend. Sadly we all know how badly a loss feels!

Lindsey-- still so sad for you, sending good wishes for quick healing and I am glad you have the prospect of Australia to distract you a little. Always good to have something happy to look forward to!

History -- I agree with Lindsey, PP will most likely resolve itself but praying it does as I know anything abnormal can make you worry in pregnancy and yay for James, he's growing (I love that name BTW)

AFM: 14 weeks, 2 days - and pregnant with a GIRL !!! woohoo, sisters! They will be 2 years and 9 months apart (ha, we found out about baby 2 the weekend of baby girl 1's 2nd birthday) We really thought boy so we were surprised (the pregnancy just felt a bit different so I thought different gender) BUT we are thrilled for 2 little girls. Still thinking of names... we tend to disagree. So far the front runner is Lilette Clair and call her Lilly. I love a ton of other names too but DH only loves that one haha

Excited for a 4 day weekend (I don't work Friday and with Monday off...) BUT sadly its supposed to rain in ATL for the whole holiday weekend so trying to change our plans (picnic by river, pass festival in park, pool days, zoo) to indoor plans. I hope you all (Americans) have fun holiday weekend plans too.

Hi ladies. I check in every now and again and it seems the board is slow these days! I know we are all busy!

ALthough i dont check in often anymore, I will try to peek in a couple times a month to see whats going on, if any. I think of you often and am praying pregnancies, TTC, moves, life, etc is going well!

Update from me- 21 weeks pregnant with our daughter, Lilly (Lilette or Lillette for her formal name, not sure on spelling yet) Feeling good but definitely appear a lot bigger than last time. In some ways, its going way quicker this time - well after first trimester ended- or maybe it just feels that was because I have done NOTHING. I bought like 2 outfits thats all so time to start working on nursery and unpacking all that baby gear.

Hope you are all well. Steph and Shannon - looking forward to your upcoming arrivals!
