Good Monday afternoon! What's new this week, ladies?

Not a whole lot for me... I'll be 30 weeks tomorrow! Holy Moly! I've started dogging my husband to get the crib up from the basement and the gigantic desk that is currently in the nursery down to the basement so I can finish setting up the nursery. DH built both pieces of furniture and they are massively heavy. So, he needs to bribe his brother to come help. I'll happily provide pizza and beer... I just want to get it done.

I'm working from home today so I can stay home with my poor DD. She has strep throat again. This is the 4th time since July. I feel so bad for her, she is such a trooper. Her pediatrician referred us to an ENT for a consult to possibly remove her tonsils. Before July she has never had strep before. No trouble with ear infections or anything, she's maybe had 3 her entire life. No clue why she keeps getting strep. So, she has an appointment next Monday for the consult. Not sure how I feel about the surgery, but we'll see what the specialist says.

I have my next appointment on Wednesday, but other than that, not much excitement.

Woohoo for 30 weeks. And yes tell DH to get a move on , boo on DD having strep. Tis the season. They will probably recommend surgery. On the plus side though once its over then its a pretty easy recovery especially being young and she won't have to worry about it much after. They may recommend adenoids as well. Its pretty common to do them both at the same time. Beats continuously getting strep. Bleh. Hopefully she gets to feeling better soon though.

I am 13w5d today. Feeling about the same as last week.I announced my pregnancy to coworkers on wednesday and they were all happy. Dh knee is a bit better. He has been bad and not been wearing the knee immobilizer they gave him. At least he has been wearing a knee sleeve. Stinker.

My grandma passed away on friday she had a heart attack on wednesday I think it was and then had a stroke. When they did a ct scan on thursday she had massive brain damage and little to know brain activity. Its sad but glad she isn't in pain anymore. My sister drove down and we said our goodbyes together prior to them taking her off the vent. I knew I couldn't be there when they did that because of the stress it would put me through.

Carson is such an accident prone thing. Not only has he had a cold but he was playing yesterday and slid on our linolium and hit the recliner chair handle that makes the leg part go up. With his head.... He has a big mark on his head from it. Then about two minutes later he was following daddy to the room and hit his head on the wall when he walked into it. Poor dude. He had kind of a rough night too. He hasn't been napping well and so he fell asleep early. He woke up at midnight and 5am. I ended up sleeping on the floor with him at 5 to help him sleep and me lol.

I am having troubles with dizziness today more than the last few days. Oh joy. I have my appointment on thursday. Oh and I found my doppler on saturday night. Felt the overwhelming need to find it so I tried it when my DS was playing in his play area and DH was shopping. I was able to find the HB pretty quickly thankfully. We only heard it the one time via u/s when the dr couldn't find it on the doppler at my last appt. We saw the little hb and wiggle worm (he/she flipped a couple times when it was getting poked at, did show its face and arm/hand and legs briefly). So it was nice to find it.I listened a short time yesterday right before bed too. Oh and I keep getting cruddy dreams. boo.

Hope you all are doing well.

Hello Ladies!
Jenny: Wow,times goes by fast.Sorry about DD,hopefully she feels better soon.

Heather: It's so great you heard the HB with the dopler.Sorry about your little guy getting hurt. That's how DD was about that same age.

Well,I felt my little one moving on the weekend,that was so exciting.At first I couldn't believe it so I waited to see if it was going to happen again and surely enough,it did.
I called the Dr's office today b/c I have a cold and I told her about feeling the baby, she said,it's early but it could happen more so b/c I am skinny.I felt DD at 15 weeks and I have heard that with the second one it happens even earlier.
Next appt.is next Monday.

Yay for baby movement. I haven't yet determined if I have indeed felt baby move. I have felt little thumps a few times on a few diff days but don't want to get excited if its not lol. I have also heard with second prengnancies you feel them earlier because you know what to look for. I didn't feel DS till about 21.5 weeks but that was because I had an anterior placenta. When we went for our anatomy scan with him he was punching the placenta and it looked like he was kissing it because it was so close to his face. Thats awesome. I have had a cold the last couple days as well. Fun times right. Have you started your injections yet or not till like next week when you go in for your appt?

I haven't started the shots yet. I will be starting them at 16 weeks. I will be discussing the details with the Dr. on my next appt.
It's never fun to have a cold especially if you are expecting. I have a little cough and I have to say it's very uncomfortable.
Hopefully you'll feel better soon.

Appointment Update: OB is sending me for a level 2 ultrasound with Maternal Fetal Medicine, appointment is scheduled for next Thursday at 9:15. He says it's just a precaution because I have a lot of amniotic fluid. Said most of the time, it's nothing but there could be an issue with the baby causing the extra fluid. I had a regular u/s last week and from what he could tell, anatomy of the baby looked normal, but now he wants a closer look. I am now measuring 6 weeks ahead (was 5 last week).

I don't really know what to think. He seemed fairly non-chalant about it, but it is somewhat alarming to have a level 2 u/s after just having a regular u/s last week.

Ack! I guess there is no sense worrying yet.

Jenny,I really hope that the u/s next weeks goes well with good results.We are mothers and we never stop worrying,that's normal. I wish you could go in tomorrow so you don't have to wait until next thursday.
I know somebody that had a lot of amniotic fluid when she was pregnant and everything turned out good. She has a 7 month old baby now. I'll keep you in my prayers. KUP.

Jenny. I hope the level 2 u/s goes really well. Maybe baby just has extra good kidneys and thats why little one has extra fluid in there. Will keep thoughts about you and your little one. KUP on how the u/s goes.

My update:

14w1d today
w/g: 1lb as of today (I gained this in the last two days boo haha)
sx: doing better. still get sick a couple times a week but I will take that over every day, RLP and normal pregnancy stuff

Had my appoinmtent today. She found hb right away this time. Didn't even have to move the doppler. She said hb was in the 150's. I am still about 2lb under my prepregnancy weight but she is not concerned especially since I am feeling better for the most part and that we should begin to see a rise in weight now.But still not concerned. I have my second draw for my integrated screen a week from tomorrow. And then I go for my next appt 11/8 and they will schedule my anatomy scan for that next week or so because they like to do it between 18-20 weeks (it would be around 19 weeks I would have it done). So I am inpatiently waiting haha.

Best wishes ladies.
