Hey there! We told our family and most friends. Last week. I am exhausted, going to bed around 7-8 each night. I have got the nt test an results came back low risk. 16 week appointment is next week then just 1 month until we find out the sex of the baby! How are you feeling? How is your spouse?

Awwww!! Did they give you a picture? Does it look like a little baby... lol or an alien!! :) That is funny how your Dr is doing things. Mine did all that stuff first and then scheduled an ultrasound at 10weeks... hmmmm!! Glad you had a good appointment!! 2week countdown for mine!! I am feeling pretty good! My jeans are getting uncomfortable, I have been putting a rubberband around the button to stretch them a little, lol! My husband told me I have a pudge, which tickled me to death!! I have also gained 4lbs, ouch!!! The reason being I eat whatever I want. If it sounds good I eat it, hehe I guess I better watch that though or I am gonna be as big as a house!!! This week I have been suuuuuper tired.... my emotions seem to be leveling back out a bit. Im not so testy with people.... :/ How are you feeling? What did they say about the dizzy spells? I can also feel my uterus stretching, I guess you could say. Do you feel anything like that? Bloating.... and such How did heartbeat sound? What was the number? They say if it is really fast its a boy, lol, old wives tale!!
I got an ultrasound! They said they always do one around 8 weeks to get measurments. Now my next appointment entails meeting with the doc to review bloodwork, urine, ultrasound...and to schedule a 12 week ultrasound (NT scan) Then i wait until 20 week appt for gender confirmation! YEY! How have you been? are you feelin well?
I did write down questions! I heard that this visit I wont even be seeing my OB? My husband will not be able to come to this appt. However he will be at the 2nd one when we have the sit down with the OB. As far as more blood drawn, and pysical-gosh it seems like i just had my yearly-UGH :) I have been having dizzy spells lately-no morning sickness, but around 11 everyday a little weezy! Ahh the price we pay for this little ones :)
My first doc appointment is on Wed any advice?
Wow you have told a few people ;) ha ha. So how far along are you? (Me, 7 weeks on Sunday) I ALSO have gotten all these apps. I did thebump.com but couldnt really navigate my way around. So now i have this and babycenter.com on my Ipad!! I just love keeping up with them! such helpful hints and tips!!! I also have been taking belly shots (well just a 6-7 week shot) So each SUnday I have my husband take one! Are you having any weird cravings? mine...get ready...pickles and hot sauce, fried food, nacho cheese..UGH all the junk food :( So far, no morning sickness! knock on wood!
This whole waiting game all the dang time is gettin the best of me as well. I had to move my 2nd appointment out 1 week just so my husband could make it. & my first appointment isnt even for 2 more weeks...UGHH!! The gender reveal will be more exciting than breaking the news...Im sure of it!! Symptoms: Tenderness yes! fatigue...major- I am so sleepy especially after lunch...bathroom breaks, a little more but not too bad! Have you told any Co-workers, friends your expecting? I think i am going to bring cup-cakes (pink and blue) to work with a card that says "Pink or Blue? You guess who!"
Bummer I'm really hoping for a ultrasound...I did a yearly exam, bloodwork in June do you think I'll have to do it again? My appointment is September 26th!! We are 1st planning on how to tell the parents and siblings... In December sometime we ARE having a gender reveal party as well... If a boy fill a box with Blue balloons and when everyone is around open the box and let the balloons fly out(Pink balloons if a girl) or a cake with pink or blue batter and when we cut the cake everyone finds out?! Do you have any ideas of how you will do your gender reveal party? Have you told anyone about your pregnancy?
How did your Doc appointment go? What all did it consist of?

My first appointment is tomorrow! I will be 6 weeks. They did not tell me anything over the phone, so I am not sure what to expect. I figured bloodwork for sure and I hope an ultrasound but I might be to early for that! Gender ultrasound should be early/mid December!! I really dont care the gender but I find myself looking at girl things and planning a girl nursery!! LOL My husband is all for a boy!!! What about you?
Ahh! Finally! Its so great to hear someone with similar intrests! I found out September 3rd! 5 weeks on Monday, first Dr. appointment on the 26th! A little nervous, but all they will be doing for me is an ultrasound & bloodwork. My husband works so is unable to come. On my 2nd appointment he will be there, (Oct. 16th). Will you be finding out the gender of your baby?
