    Hi everyone! My name is Stacey, and I just moved up to the 2nd tri from the first tri board. I am 14 weeks today and already popped! This is my first, so I was a little surprised that I can't fit into my pants, but I keep telling myself, it's only in my stomach area (right now :)) so, I'm doing just fine! DH and I had 2 m/c before this pregnancy, so we are feeling blessed that things seem to be moving along nicely. Had my last d/a last Friday and got to hear the strong heartbeat for the first time! What a sound :) I'm looking forward to getting advice and perhaps offering some on this site!

    Your story sounds like mine! :)
    My boyfriend and I have also had two miscarriages (August 23rd, 2009 and August 23rd, 2010) We just made it to the 2nd trimester board also! Right now, I am 12 weeks, 5 days! Our 12 week appointment got cancelled due to this wonderful Missouri Weather, so I've gotta wait until next Thursday for another ultrasound. I'm super excited but SO nervous at the same time, I'm sure you're about the same. Right now, my due date is sitting at August 13th. Ugh, I REALLY want out of August!!!!!!
    marchbabee replied to MommyManda's response:
    Thanks ladies! The heartbeat is amazing! It was really funny b/c the doctor had told me that if we didn't hear a heartbeat, we'd go do an ultrasound. But, the second she put the wand down on my tummy, out popped the heartbeat. She said, "I like this baby! :) I'm thinking maybe it's a girl since the rate was so fast (160) and it was really active in an ultrasound the week before. We'll see! I'll be happy with whatever after our history!
    MommyManda I'm so happy that you've made it to the 2nd tri too! I just responded to your first tri posting about the doctor cancelling. I don't know that the fears ever fully go away, but I have to keep telling myself that up to this point, everything seems to be moving along by the book. Are you going to find out the sex?
    I'm due Aug. 4 and pretty psyched about it. I live in MN, and the State Fair is at the end of August, and I really want to go and enjoy everything on a stick and deep friend. Yum!
