Quoting Tabitha+4:" I will probably be a little fickle as a due date buddy, b/c I hardly get on BG anymore. I've been on ... [snip!] ... A few questions: Who is finding out the sex? Who is keeping the surprise? Anyone have a preference to which sex they want?"


I'm finding out the sex --- all my life, I thought I'd want to be surprised, but all I can think about now is whether there's a boy or girl in there :)
I have no preference --- thought I'd always want a boy first, but after losing my first baby last year --- all I can say is just that I want one this time :)



How about you?

I hope everything's ok. Let us know what the Dr says!

Quoting katxo:" I know mama, me too. I wish I wasn't a worry wart :( but I am and only b/c I have gone through a m/c. ... [snip!] ... When I was pregnant with my son, I never worried about anything and I never had symptoms. I wish I could be that same person :/"


AGREED! I miss the wonder & excitement of the first time when I was a mildly worried about loss, but was looking forward to Tri 2 & really didn't see the loss coming. I feel bad that my first thought after the initial excitement of finding out we were pregnant again was whether this would be a loss, too. I think about that almost as much as I think about the good parts.



EMILY -- I hate wishing that you get your MS back (seems almost cruel), so I'll just wish you peace in your heart and that you feel better tomorrow. If it makes you feel any better, I stopped feeling sore in the b**bs for a few days, then they came back double! :)

Just my next appointment. I won't have another scan till the anatomy one, so that kind of sucks. But I'm so glad I went.



Everyone else, let us know about the spotting! I'm still spotting after 5 weeks so I understand the worry!

Let me ask you ---- b/c I've not really asked anyone (probably b/c I've not gotten this far with good results)... what are anatomy scans (is that to find out gender)? Are these different than the nt scans? I'm just not "up" on what scan is for what and when! lol TIA!

This is the one they do around 20 weeks and its a major growth scan. They take lots of measurements and it takes at least a half an hour. The gender is just the bonus. :) I'm really excited for that one.

Sorry to hear so many mama are having spotting and worries about loss of symptoms. I had some spotting a few days ago but baby still fine and my hcg levels still going up so all looking positive. I to have had one miscarriage and a missed miscarriage. So had pretty much convinced myself yesterday that the baby had died before I went for my scan so burst into tears when I seen the heart beat. I get to go for another scan in 4 weeks to have the nt done.
And as far as finding out the sex I want a surprise this time as this baby will definitely be my last. and I don't really have a preference although I am sick of everyone saying I must be hopeing for a girl (I already have 3 boys)
Also just wondering it there any of you mama's who are due in August who already have a baby under one??

Ok so update. What I was pretty sure was baby movement DEFINITELY is. It's so obvious I literally squeal from surprise when it happens. One is in my lower left side and the other is top right by my belly button. And I feel it always in the same spot. It's like a surprising unexpected POKE. So strange because with my son I felt him at like 14 weeks.



Is anybody else feeling anything yet??

No but you're having twins so its a possibility.

Ok so I think I'm having some pretty sharp ligament pains..it does it if I stretch to far ...I've never ever ever had it this sharp feeling....I'm still seriously worried about the twin idea...I'm getting big quick...like I can see a tiny bit of a bump starting to form in the low low abdominal area. Which makes absolutely no sense ...because at 8 weeks the baby is about a half inchish?
