I've never heard of that! I thought if you let them know your pregnant they can get you an appointment. I'm sorry you're going through this.

Well with my insurance I have to get a referral first which isn't an issue since I have one already for the ob I refuse to see now. With this new one being I'm a new patient the earliest appt is around the beginning of February but they will make me an appt no questions asked unlike the last one. I just decided to wait to make the appt until after my next scan because I've had so many issues getting in to an ob that I want proof everything's fine so there is no questions. (I've been told twice now that my last u/S's showed an unviable pregnancy by the obs office I refuse to go to now)

I think you should get in with a doctor ASAP especially if you are high risk with your history if losses. Any doctor at this point. You have to keep a close eye in your little bean. Where do you live again?? I'll be thinking of you on Tuesday!

I had my 24 week midwife appointment yesterday.

Nugget is looking really good. A great size and his little heart sounded so strong!! The midwife said he sounds just like any other baby even with the defects. He is proving to be such a strong little fighter.

I'm so proud of him!!

On the flip side we are still awaiting the appointments to come through to see the specialist fetal medicine and cardiologists. There has been some confusion as to where we will be seen due to our location and the availability of specialists at different hospitals. Kind of feel like we're in limbo at the moment which is rubbish, but hoping to hear in the next couple of days or we will have to wait until the new year... :(

Red, I hope that you get good news at your ultrasound next week. I can understand what a trying time this must be for you with your previous losses.
I hope you get your OB sorted sooner rather than later.
Will be looking out for an update.

Ktee - according to everyone I've talked (doctors mainly) to my history doesn't make me high risk even though I thought it would. My primary is keeping an eye on me at this point since I've been having a hell of a time getting into an ob so I am seeing someone. Thank you for your concern.

S4mm13 - I'm glad to hear all is well with your little man. You both will be in my prayers. Thank you for your kind words.

Yay!!! Thank you ladies for joining in on the fun & for keeping the conversation going while I have been MIA since starting this thread, lol. I'll do an update on myself after I've responded to you all :-) ]

First of all, I am so happy to see all of my TTC buddies and some new friends all in one place!! Secondly, we have 2 Sams, which with my pregnancy brain already kicking into full swing, is going to get very confusing, lol. I shall refer to you Sams as Sam (s4mm) and Sam32 to try & avoid confusion. I hope that works for you ladies :-)

So on to personals (and I apologize that this will be a super long post....I have a lot to catch up on!)...

SherBears, welcome!! Of course you are welcome to join us! Happy to have you aboard :-) Sounds like our symptoms have been similar! The gas/bloat start off non-existent in the morning and gets progressively worse as the day goes on. From dinnertime on, I am feeling huge & super uncomfortable. My nausea has also been manageable for the most part. Found myself running to the bathroom on 2 occasions, but never actually threw up. I've been blessed with a strong stomach (when a stomach bug goes through our house DS & DH will be puking up a storm and I only get it on the other end), so it takes an awful lot for me to vomit. I'd say I'm fortunate, but some days I really think I would feel better if I could just get it over with & puke, lol. Don't feel bad about complaining. I am right there with you girl! Pregnancy is hard work and often unpleasant, but the end result is well worth it! That bleeding episode must have been terrifying!! I hope everything is ok. What did your dr say? I know many pregos get some bleeding with a particularly tough BM, so hopefully it was just from the straining. In the meantime, definitely load up on the fiber & fluids!! Please let us know how you are making out!

Sam, I'm so glad you joined me over here :-) I love hearing about your little ninja and that everything is looking & sounding so great thus far. You sure do have a little fighter in there!

Gina, yay! Thanks for joining me here :-) How did the ultrasound go on Friday? Everything look good? Did you stay strong & not find out the sex of your little nugget? I love your pic in front of the tree with your DH on Facebook. You have the cutest little bump!!

Sam32, thanks for joining!! I'm nervous about the whole doppler thing. I feel like I will worry more if I can't find the heartbeat myself. I figure I will wait & let the professionals do their job :-). Did you decide to get one? And I hear you on the exhaustion. I just want to live in bed. The holidays are NOT helping, lol Sounds like quite a fiasco with the bursting pipe/flooding. I hope you got everything take care of dried out & that you don't have any other catastrophes during your pregnancy. Maybe this is good luck...like when it rains on your wedding day ;-)

Welcome redneck! I've been following your journey on the other threads & I can only imagine how frustrated you must be with all the waiting & uncertainty!! I truly hope you get awesome news on Tuesday! I will be stalking for an update :-)

Ktee, hi!! Still feeling pretty well? I admire your determination keeping up with your workouts!! If I wasn't for Bodyflow and I didn't have members expecting me to show up & teach them, I don't know that I would ever drag my tired butt to the gym, lol. Luckily, I teach 3x a week, which is enough for me these days :-) And I am lol-ing at the clothes issue because I am right there with you. I am a SAHM, so I can mostly get away with sweats/yoga pants, but I had one heck of a time trying to figure out what to wear for our family Xmas party last night. I hate this early stage where you just look like you gained a few lbs (which I haven't...yet), but don't look at all pregnant yet. I'm hoping I pop early since this is my 2nd baby and can just make the transition to maternity clothes, lol. Btw, I am super jealous that you have appts every 2 weeks! Lucky girl!! Waiting 4 weeks is like a freakin eternity! My dr does every 4 weeks until the third trimester, then every 2 weeks, then every week the last month, which seems to be the norm.

Anna, welcome!! You look great! Such a cute little bump you've got going on! How are you feeling? Good luck on the long flight! Just make sure you get plenty of fluids and get up to stretch your legs every hour or so. How long will you be away? That is a beautiful u/s pic! Your little boy looks perfect :-)

Sarah, thanks for joining us!! I'm sorry you've been suffering with the morning sickness so badly :-( That sounds miserable. I hope you have found ways to cope with it & that it eases up by the end of the 1st trimester! Have you told the rest of your family about your pregnancy yet? Maybe you should just get it over with & tell them so they at least understand why you are running to the bathroom on Xmas day, lol. The risk of miscarriage goes way down after you've seen a heartbeat :-)

AFM, I'm so sorry I've been off the radar these last couple weeks. I am just SO. DAMN. TIRED. All the time. It's ridiculous. I feel bad for my DS because most days these last 2 weeks, I have had to sit him in front of the tv with a snack & go lay down for an hour. I just can't make it through the day without a nap. And even then, I am ready for bed at 8:30-9:00. I sure hope this doesn't keep up for the entire pregnancy! It doesn't help that I get up to pee anywhere from 2 to 4 times a night (even when I try to limit how much I drink in the evenings). And our busy schedule with all the holiday celebrations doesn't make it any easier either. As much as I am looking forward to Xmas, I kinda can't wait for it to be over so I can get a bit of a break! Other than feeling so unbelievably exhausted, the rest hasn't been too bad. Mild, occasional nausea, some constipation/bloat/gas, broken out skin (I feel like a teenager again)....the usual. Definitely noticing my tummy sticking out a little more & my pants are getting tight, but not enough for maternity pants. I'll be 9 weeks on Monday and have pretty much told the whole family except for my dad & stepmom. We're seeing them tomorrow to celebrate the holidays, so we'll tell them then. My next dr appt is Jan 7th and my next scan is Jan 17th, so still a ways to go. Just trying to make it through life one day at a time until then and hoping I get some relief in the 2nd trimester. I don't remember being this tired when I was prego with DS, but, of course, I could nap whenever I wanted back then too. I know most of you are first-time mamas, but I read this article the other day & it made me LOL because it was so very accurate, so I wanted to share: http://blogs.babycenter.com/mom_stories/top-10-differences-between-your-1st-and-2nd-pregnancy/. I love that you all have names picked out already. My DH won't even discuss names until we know the gender. Personally, I like Haley Madison for a girl. I have absolutely no idea what we would do for a boy. I kind of like Andrew because you can do a lot with it (Andy, Drew, etc). We've talked about Jeremy in the past, but I'm just not really feeling it. I guess we'll see in another 9-10 weeks when DH is willing to talk about it with me :-)

How is everyone else doing? Hope all is well with you lovely ladies!! Can't wait for more appointments, scans & updates!!

Our u/s on Friday went amazing!!! We got to see EVERYTHING except what was between his/her legs. My favorite two pictures where the one with the heart and the one posted below. Man! I can't wait to kiss that little nose!

I hope all of you who are still in your first trimester get some relief over the Christmas week and get a little energy and relief from the feeling sick.
Redneckgurl26, I sincerely hope that everything goes great tomorrow and you get started down the road of getting some confirmation of your pregnancy and getting yourself in to see the new OB. I know that this has probably been very frustrating for you, but I try to remember that all of your emotions can be felt by your nugget. Try to accept that your old OB just isn't going to be supportive and let them go...they obviously aren't the right practice for you. It is probably all happening this way for a reason and you will end up with a terrific OB at this new practice. Try to stay calm, focus on sending your little nugget positive/happy vibes, and lots of love.
Please keep us posted about tomorrow as we will all be here cheering you on!!

s4mm13, so excited to hear about such a great appt!!!!!! It definitely sounds like he is up for this challenge in his life so I know that gives you and your DH even more determination to bring him into this world prepared to love on him and give him the best.
Where are you located? I know the chances of us living near each other are slim but if so I have a great recommendation for fetal medicine specialists through my hospital. Let us know how your search goes and what you're finding out about those doctors.

Well ladies I look forward to hearing from all of you over the next couple of days and I hope you all share lots of stories of joyful holiday memories. Congratulations to all of us for our wonderful Christmas presents that unfortunately we have to wait to unwrap, lol. God bless you all!

Sorry I haven't replied lately. I will catch up and reply when I'm feeling better and not in so much pain. I just wanted to let y'all know what's happened.

I found out Saturday evening after I started spotting that I was going to miscarry. The u/s that night showed only the sac again dating 6+6 this time though but my beta was only 4200 when 4 weeks prior it has been 3600. So putting the 2 together the doctor believes it was a blighted ovum. I've been bleeding on and off since that night but today it had gotten heavier than spotting. I know this isn't much to be positive about but I'm happy that this time it's happening naturally and I don't need another d&c.

Good luck in your pregnancies ladies and I'll check back soon.

redneckgurl26, I am so so so terribly sorry for your loss. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you because I imagine you must feel so frustrated and alone with another loss.
I hope that you can find an OB or a specialist to talk to after this angel baby. To have gotten pregnant 4 times and lost them...I think someone needs to take some real time to talk with you and do testing for you and figure out what is going on because you are young and this is not normal. Please know that you are worth a doctor taking his/her time to walk with you through the process of conception and hopefully carrying your baby.
Good luck, God bless, and know that we are here for you sweetie.

Good morning ladies! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

Gina, what a perfect little nugget you have there!! I love seeing that cute little nose :-) Such a perfect early Christmas present!

redneck, I am so sorry to hear about your loss :-( I second Gina that I truly hope you are able to find a doctor who will help find answers for why you continue to suffer these early losses. My heart is breaking for you sweetheart. You are in my thoughts and hope you have some support to get through this rough time.

AFM, our holidays were good, but would have been better if DS hadn't been sick with a fever & a cough. He is finally feeling better now and he still enjoyed opening all of his presents, but it put a bit of a damper on the day. Such is life with kids! Other than that, things are good. Still feeling about the same...still constantly exhausted, but otherwise not feeling too bad. I already have round ligament pain when I sneeze or get up too quickly. My pants are starting to get tight, but I'm still wearing my regular clothes for now (but opting for elastic waistbands these days!). I've been taking weekly pics and am just starting to notice some changes. Here's a pic for comparison...on the left is 4 weeks and on the right is 9 weeks:

Image

I really can't wait for my next appointments for confirmation that everything is progressing properly. The 4-week wait between appts seems like an eternity!! My next OB appt is Jan 7th, but probably won't be terribly exciting....just an external exam and should get to hear the heartbeat (which will be very reassuring). My next scan is Jan 17th at 12w4d and I can't wait! At least the time between my 1/7 appt & the 1/17 scan should go quickly since my mom is having her next surgery (reconstruction) on Jan 10th, so I will be plenty busy helping her during her recovery.

I hope everyone is doing well and feeling okay! Update us when you can ladies (and please post u/s and belly pics...that's my favorite part of the prego boards!)!

Oh Redneck, Im so so sorry to hear your news. I agree with the others, and that you find a doctor who can help you find answers to your losses :(

AFM - I got a doppler and, it took me half hour but I found the baby heartbeat :D Sounds so different to mine, like a fast train, was amazing for a few seconds then it vanished lol. First time I have heard it! Feeling a little overwhelmed now :D

Hello everyone!

I'm Rachel! Thanks for setting up the group Elysia! I've been away from the boards so I didn't see the posting right away. I'm 13 weeks, 5 days. Happy to be in/near that 2nd trimester depending on who's schedule you're going with. I just set up my next ultrasound appointment today for February 18. Can't believe we'll be finding out so soon if it's a boy or girl. I have 1 normal doc appointment on January 21 which will be a nice check in and I'm looking forward to hearing the heartbeat again! I broke out some maternity clothes this week too. I have a bit of a hump but my normal clothes still fit. The maternity stuff is just so much more comfortable!

Will check back later and do some personals. Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year's Eve!
Rachel

It's a girl!

Thanks for inviting me to the group Elysia! I just got my BFP today which would make me due on Sept 11th, which is the same date I got my BFP with my last pregnancy this past year that ended in a miscarriage. We decided to really take this month off from trying because of the holidays/vacations and only BD'd once but I guess that didn't seem to matter:) After my last miscarriage my dr wanted me to do betas if I got pregnant again (since I had a tubal reversal last year) but I think I'm going to wait it out for another week then give him a call. I'm trying to be as stress free as possible and I know that the beta hell I will not help. I hope everyone is feeling well!
