BABY MAKING IN OUR 30'S PART THREE

Postby teachingmom » Tue Jun 28, 2011 8:15 am

Hope everyone finds us here.

I had my doctor apt yesterday and it went great!!!! I'm am so thankful I was so worried they wouldn't find anything on the ultrasound like my last pg. But they did we saw a beautiful little bean measuring 9 weeks 3 days which I had 9 weeks 6 days so we are all good there. Due date is still January 24th. My blood pressure was good. We didn't get to hear the heartbeat :( something was wrong with the machine but we did get to see it beating away :D :D :D. When I go back next month I have to do a 24 urine hold. I am not real excited about a jug of pee in my fridge for 24 hours. But as we all know we will do what ever we need to do for our baby. I am considered high risk so my doctor said I'll prolly get a ultra sound every time I go :jump: :jump: :jump: I'm super excited about getting to see the baby grow and change. I love my new doctor she's young and just had a baby six months ago so pg syms are very fresh in her mind. She was very very friendly and I love love love my nurse I had her son this past year in class. My first actual real utlra sound with the big guns equipment as my doc called it. Will be Aug 8th they will be checking my cervix then so see if I am having any problems that warrent a clerage (sp).
Here's a pic of my little bean

Babydreams sending lots of baby dust your way for this cycle. It'll happen soon!!!!

Monica~ I forgot to let you know I asked the doctor about the folic acid. She said it was very good to keep on it. She always likes her patients to take it if they have a history of m/c. So for now I'm still on my folic acid and my prenatal which has a ton of folic in it. I'm also drinking lots of juice.

Lesley, that's a wonderful report. Thanks for sharing the picture of your little bean. I am so glad you like your doctor and your nurse.

Baby Dreams, I'm on CD 2 today as well.

AFM, Ever since I got back in town I started on a big rearranging project at home. AF showed yesterday and has been horrible with terrible cramps. I am disappointed that it is so painful because I have been taking false unicorn root which is supposed to make your period milder. Herbs are slow to work so maybe next cycle will be better.

Hi!
Can I join you ladies?
I'm 33 and ttc for 10 months now. I'm not sure what DPO I am right now. I had to take a break from OTC's due to all of the stress. Last month I was pretty sure of O, but this month I couldn't tell for sure. I could be anywhere from 4-7 dpo I think. My cycles are around 28 days on average.
Trying to be positive about things!
DH had SA a few months back and everything is in normal range. I've had blood work and ultrasound and everything is normal from those tests too.
I have a 1 year appt. scheduled with my Gyno end of August.
I think I will try the OPK's for cycle 11 if need be. This month I definitely felt more laid back, but also very confused again about my cycle. I've also put on about 7 pounds since ttc, so I'm focusing on being healthy and happy.
Looking forward to hearing more about you and feeling the support from ladies in the same boat as I am. :)

Thank you:)
Feeling a little down lately. Not sure exactly where I am in the TWW. I decided that after this cycle is over, I'm not going to actively try anymore. I have an appt. with my doctor end of Aug. Think I will just give the whole thing a rest til then. I've been feeling way too stressed and much too sad.

Welcome kit cat ttc can really wear you down focus on you and positive thoughts. Luna and baby dreams I didnt realize you guys were on the same cycle day. That's pretty cool to have a ttc friend that gets where you are in your cycle.
Sorry I've been mia for a few days. Our modem finally died but dh kept trying to make it work I finally talked him into buying a new one. So I'm back up and running whoo hoo :jump:
AFM I'm finally feeling some better getting the zofran was a great help just wish I'd gotten some sooner. Its hard to believe that in another week I'll be in my second trimester. It seems to be going by fast. My birthday was on Thursday 36 years I'm officially In the advanced maternal age bracket
According to my dr. I knew would be but its really bothering more than I thought it would. I'm hoping it's just me being tired and hot it so hot here in Arkansas and I'm cranky. I'm hoping in a few weeks I'll be feeling better and it won't bother me. My age hasn't bothered me till now but it's killing me this year.
My father in law has his heart valve replacement on Tuesday the 5th. It was supposed to be a 4 hour surgery but ended up being over 7 hours he had some complications with bleeding. Everything seems to be better now he was moved to a regular room yesterday. We are very thankful.

Teachingmom--2nd Trimester already! Time is flying by! Glad your FIL was moved to a regular room, that's a positive sign. I hope he has a speedy recovery.

Has anyone heard from Morrigan or Bilson?

Baby Dreams,

I am not for sure when I Oed. FF hasn't given me cross hairs yet and I have not had a big temp spike but I did have fertile CM on CD 12 and CD 13 so I think it was one of those days. My boobs are sore so I am thinking I have already. Generally my boobs are sore from O to AF.

Green tea? Is anyone drinking it? I started drinking it a couple of weeks ago as an alternative to coffee and I had lots of CM this month. Don't know if it attributed to that or not but I kind of think it did.

How's everyone?

I have been drinking green tea for the last several months. I also noticed an increase in CM. In the summer, I don't like hot tea as much. If you can find it, "Teas Tea" is excellent. It's bottled all-natural, unsweetened green tea.
I also got an increase in CM from eating grapefruit.

Hey Kit Kat! That's awesome to know about grapefruit. I have been drinking my green tea iced in the afternoons but in the morning I drink one cup hot with local honey. I have to take local honey daily to keep my allergies from going insane. Where are you in your cycle now? Is it time to POAS yet?

I'm CD 28 today. My AF has been arriving anywhere from CD 26-33, so not sure what to expect. I have been feeling slightly crampy, but I don't feel as much PMS as normal. I don't like to test unless I feel suspicious. I don't really feel suspicious yet, so I will wait and see. 28-30 is pretty much my average time for AF to arrive, so if it doesn't by Saturday, I will test then.
How about you?
