January 6: First ultrasound at 4w 2d. Saw the yolk sack
January 9: First prenatal appointment
January 23: Heard Peanut's heartbeat for the first time. 126 beats per minute :)
February 9: Fell and injured shoulder. Ultrasound showed heart rate at 157 bpm :)

February 27: Next prenatal appointment, will hear heartbeat with doppler for the first time
February 27: Sequential screening ultrasound and blood work. Results were reassuring :)
March 15: Had some bleeding and went for ultrasound. Peanut looked good and tech said she thought it looked like a boy ;) We shall see!
March 25: Second round of blood work for the sequential screening and the results were amazing :) Lowest possible chances for down syndrome, trisomy 18 and spinal defects!
April 1: Went in for emergency ultrasound. Have cervicitis but found out we are having a BOY!!! Heart rate 132

April 25: Anatomy scan at 20 weeks :) He is definitely still a boy and completely healthy! Looks like he has all his parts and is a very active little boy :)
June 6: Had my 1 hour glucose test. Heart rate 141 and measuring 28 weeks (2 weeks ahead).
July 6: Admitted to the hospital for back pain. Robbie's heart rate kept dropping so put on hospital bed rest until I deliver. He had the cord around his neck and was cutting off his blood supply.
July 17: Looks like cord loosened on followup ultrasound so I'm off 24 hour monitoring and now just on hospital bed rest with bathroom privileges. Should have another ultrasound in a week and if the cord is off his neck I'll be able to go home :)
