Does the toothache have anything to do with the pregnancy? I know sometimes your gums can be swollen and bleeding.

tfrias- can you use orajel or anything? I'm not sure if that's on the "approved for pregnancy" list but I would lean towards Yes since it's not ingested, except for maybe a small amount.

AFM, the spotting has stopped completely for almost 3 days now, which I'm hoping is a really good sign that I'll get a positive outcome tomorrow at the check-up ultrasound. I know I'll have to take it easy the rest of the pregnancy (no yard work- darn!) but I'm really hoping I'll be able to come off strict bed rest tomorrow. Other than that, I'm still taking a Zofram some evenings if I feel nauseous by around 4pm because I know it'll get worse and not go away, but I'm trying not to take one every day.

Hope everyone is doing well and feeling good!! :)

Hey ladies :) The babies are doing great! I'll be 12 weeks on Monday, and we have our 12 week appointment on Wednesday. Nausea still comes at night, but the fatigue is getting better. I'm just trying to keep my belly full, and that seems to help with the nausea. I'm definitely showing already, and I had to tell work, but they were all so excited :)

How's everyone else doing?

LCP- glad the twins are doing well :)

My doctor visit on Friday went great- I was taken off bed rest that day and told to just take it easy throughout the rest of the pregnancy- no strenuous activity (and tmi, no sexual activity for the time being, and those 2nd trimester horny hormones are definitely in full swing- grr!! My doctor's exact words were, "you can do whatever you want to him, but he can't touch you" haha.. that was awkward) The ultrasound tech was also able to give us with 65% accuracy at 14.5 weeks that our little peanut is a girl!! We go back in 2 weeks at a day shy of 17 weeks to confirm the gender and check on the progress of the clot (that's all that's left from the tear now, and my body should absorb it on it's own) and then we're planning a gender reveal party where we'll cut into a cake with all of our family and friends that weekend. I'm officially showing and people at work are starting to notice and comment on my bump, but I'm 5'1" so I had a feeling I'd show early. Definitely feeling the "bliss" that is the 2nd trimester. Hope everyone is well :)

Hi ladies! Hope everyone is doing well! Ive definitely felt bettet and more energetic in the last week! Im anxiously awaiting next appointment on the 24th! Dr is going to try and see gender then! Yay!

What are your opinions on the "quad screen" tests? Im very up in the air about whether to do it or not. My dr told me to decide that before our next appointment.

Hopefulmomma- I was just thinking the same thing. I think I might have mostly talked myself out of it, I mean even if they think something is wrong i still would continue with my pregnancy. And I think I remember the nurse saying something abt false positives?

Tfrias- it's a test that screens for certain abnormalities. Which ones exactly is slipping my mind right now though ( along with many things these days...pregnancy brain!)

From the American Preg. Assoc.:
The quad screen test is a maternal blood screening test that looks for four specific substances: AFP, hCG, Estriol, and Inhibin-A.

AFP: alpha-fetoprotein is a protein that is produced by the fetus

hCG: human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone produced within the placenta

Estriol: estriol is an estrogen produced by both the fetus and the placenta

Inhibin-A: inhibin-A is a protein produced by the placenta and ovaries

The quad screen is a maternal blood screening test that is similar to the Triple Screen Test (also know as AFP Plus and the Multiple Marker Screening). However, the quad screen looks for not only the three specific substances evaluated in those tests (AFP, hCG, and Estriol) but also a fourth substance known as Inhibin-A.

The screen is essentially the same as the screening tests that look for only three substances, except the likelihood of identifying pregnancies at risk for Down Syndrome is higher through the evaluation of Inhibin-A levels. The false positive rate of the test is also lower.

My ob doesn't do any screening till 18 weeks... I've been up in the air about it too.
Completely off subject: the fam and I went to Corpus Christi! A little pre baby trip for us since we hit 13 weeks :) it was beautiful. I couldn't stay in the water though cause the waves were kinds rough. Saturday I start second trimester!! Woo hoo!!!

Happy - that's great! I love the beach! Swam at my parents pool for the first time yesterday and it was so nice.

Talked w hubby about quad screen last night, and he doesn't think we need to do it. I'm still thinking/praying about it. It's crazy that we may know it's gender in like 11 days!!!
