I forgot to ask you ladies (Pregnancy fuzz..) but when you guys got your anatomy scan, did you guys see a clear 4 view of the heart chambers? I saw the tech only list that she saw 3.. and now that I think about that i'm feeling really paranoid.

Quoting Ayzya:" lol I hear you on the ultrasound thing too. I found out the gender at the 4D place and she was like "oh ... [snip!] ... surprised I don't have nasty issues because i'm tall and so i'm always awkwardly crossing my legs, and I know you shouldn't."


Ugh, that sucks. My ultrasound tech ladies aren't too bad.. at my 20 week ultrasound though I was freaking out because the lady who did mine was the SAME lady who did my 20 week ultrasound with my last pregnancy and that's when I got all the bad news about my son, so that right there had me paranoid.. and then I was asking her if everything was okay and she was like, "Let me look and I'll let you know.." then she started asking me, "Have you done genetic counseling for this baby? Have you had any problems?" asking me all these questions, making me think something's wrong and at the very end of the ultrasound she tells me everything's okay. So of course I was having a heart attack the whole damn time cuz she's giving me the run around lol.



And I try to keep my feet elevated too but for some reason my left foot gets this weird tingly feeling and it starts to swell up way worse than my right one. My boo massages em though so that helps. :D



And when I went to my last ultrasound she was in the perfect position to see her heart, so we saw everthying. Maybe your little one just wasn't in a good position to see all the chambers..

Well I called the Dr's office today and she said that the baby looked fine and they did find four chambers after all, so that was good news, but then they came to tell me that the doctor says I have a slight placenta previa. So she said no intercourse and no exercise.



Does anybody else have this issue? What does this usually mean? I mean no intercourse isn't going to kill me, but I really need to exercise. I've gained so much weight its insane. I went to my Endo dr for my hypothyroid and told him my concerns about the weight gain so he wanted me to pick up on the walking each day and watch what I eat. Argh.. if its not one thing its always another!

I have no idea what that even means, did they not really give you any info? Is it something you should worry about? And I think unless they put you on total bedrest, walks should be okay.. I mean it's not strenuous exercise. I mean I'd ask first but I think walks would at least be okay. And don't worry about the weight gain girl, I've already gained 30 lbs.:oops:

I actually mentioned that I was going to do more walking but it was the nurse I was talking to on the phone and not the dr and even she was like "Yeah.. no." so I dunno! I looked it up online and it's basically when your placenta slides down into your cervix. If it ends up covering it completely then you have to end up doing a c-section, and depending on if you start bleeding early then you might have to have the baby prematurely.



Since mine is just a slight previa, there's a chance it could move up and out of the way so I think I just need to stay hopeful. I just.. have a tendency to freak out too much. xD

Welcome Amy! You're just a few days ahead of me. :D More for team pink, that's awesome.



And yeah I am surprised that my stomach hasn't rounded out completely yet. I just look fat, but I don't think people feel certain that i'm actually pregnant yet.



These are some terrible shots I took of myself but I was trying to squeeze into my gown for Chinese New Year and obviously couldn't zip up my pants lol so it showcases just a big stomach but not necessarily a pregnant looking one..

So at least you ladies look pregnant and actually have people recognizing that you aren't just overweight. I've been keeping my hand on my belly as I walk around just to emphasize that i'm pregnant lol.. I'm so embarassed.. I wish my stomach would round out perfectly already.
