Made it past the first hurdle!

Postby meggles » Wed Mar 18, 2015 2:48 pm

I had my 8 week u/s today and am so thrilled to report that baby is still growing perfectly and HR was great (I got to hear it too!). This is the 4th time I've been pregnant, but I have never made it to this point before. I actually could see the head, body and little arms! I'm going to try to keep this positive vibe going as long as I can, but I know I'll find something to worry about soon :roll:

How are you ladies doing? Any milestones to share?

Yay!! SOoo amazing, congrats hun, this is my first, and I cannot imagine how big this moment was for you. Congratulations truly a blessing. You got to see baby as a gummy bear!! I love it! Try not to stress, I know its hard, remember its not good for you or baby. Just one day at a time.

Doing all good over here! 23 weeks tomorrow.. Cannot wait to meet our little nugget!

Meggels, that's wonderful news! I am so happy for you! :D

I am currently in my 6th week with my rainbow and this is when everything went wrong with my first pregnancy; I didn't find out until the 12 week scan. So, right now I am anxiously holding my breath as I wait to reach my milestone of 12 weeks. Hoping for a much better result at my scan!

Isis, gummy bear is totally right lol! It's pretty amazing. I have the u/s pic on my fridge and I just keep looking at it amazed that that little gummy bear is growing inside me.

Mrscolviper, I hope everything goes well on Monday! Keep us posted.

Targaryen, I can't imagine having to wait til 12 weeks. I hope the wait goes quickly and you get to see your beautiful little baby!

When is your due date?

DH and I looked into paying for an early scan but the out-of-pocket expense was too much for us right now. :( The hardest part about waiting is keeping the dark thoughts in check (I can't get rid of them entirely but I do my best to keep a hold of them).

My due date is 10/27/15 :)

Can you talk to your ob about being seen earlier? Maybe explain how anxious the wait is making you, which is understandable given your history.

A late October baby! How wonderful!

I'm seeing my midwife in 2 weeks so I'll ask her then if there's a way I can have a scan earlier.

When is your next appointment?

Thanks Care! How are you doing?

Targaryen- I hope you can get in for a scan earlier! Good luck.

I had an appointment yesterday, things are still progressing nicely. I have my last visit at my REs office next Monday then I get discharged to my ob. I'm going miss going to the RE even though it's a bit of a drive. They are much more reassuring than my ob. Oh well. At least, things are going well.

I made it past my first hurdle! Finally. 12 week scan went great; there actually is a baby in there! Heart rate was 164, measuring on time, everything looks as it should and baby was happily dancing. :D

Hope you ladies are doing great.
