holding- tell your hubby congrats! I know its a temp job, but its a job with money, so thats awesome! I’m glad you have a new plan for your next cycle, and it sounds like donor sperm might be the way to go. I think it’s amazing that your DH is ok with that, some men would be too proud. That just tells you how much he loves you and wants you guys to have a family. Keep us updated!
Jenn- can’t believe you are 16.5 weeks!! so happy your bleeding has stopped, I hope you never see it again. My friend who had the SCH, had it thru the first trimester, then it went away. So I hope you are having the same luck. I agree with holding, you have to stop listening to others peoples horror stories. I’ve had to cut people off, and tried to do it in a nice way, so they wouldn’t continue their story. It’s too much for people like us. The constant worrying you are feeling isn’t going to go away. Unfortunetly, with our pasts, it’s just normal for us. Just try to tell yourself that every woman’s pregnancy is different. Your friends baby might have been constantly on the move, then your other friends baby might have been more mellow. Their are similarities in pregnancies, but not exact pregnancies. Any concerns, ask your dr. At least, that’s what I do. I’ve found that most of the stuff I am stressing myself out about is normal. So hang in there!
Jencat- how are you doing? Never heard from you after your last dr appt, I hope everything is ok with the baby and that you haven’t been on the thread because you are just too tired. Thinking about you
Afm, things are progressing along, I’m 29 weeks, so in my 7th month and in my 3rd trimester! Getting bigger, hands and feet are starting to swell a little, but it seems to depend on the day. We did the 3d ultrasound, my little guy is shy and was totally in the fetal position. We kinda got a side profile, but it wasn’t very clear. We are going back tonight for a 3rd try to see if we can get anything. I’m not expecting much, since both times we’ve been there, he’s pretty much stayed the same. I’ve tried drinking oj, apple juice, pinapple juice to try to get him moving, but he’s a stubborn little guy. What can I say, he’s like his mama, and his daddy! My baby shower is in a few weeks, and we’ve already gotten so many hand me downs that this kid is set for the first 6 months! It’s great how generous people can be. Me and DH went up north to a cabin for the weekend as a last time getaway before the baby. It was nice to get away from the heat, yes, it’s still in the 100’s here and killing me, and just relax with each other.
I hope everyone else is doing good, I miss hearing from you ladies. This journey started back in January when holding started this thread. It was then that I felt like I finally had people who understood what I was going thru. So i love hearing updates from everyone, I think of you all often, and love to see sucess stories. And even when they aren’t success stories, i want to support you the best that I can because you all supported me.
Take care everyone, :grouphug:
