How far along are you? 7 weeks 6 days
Any milestones passed? I am at 56 days pregnant. My cycle that I had my missed miscarriage, we found out that the heartbeat was gone on day 55. I guess that's a milestone .
Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? Nothing since last week (heartbeat 160 at u/s)
How are you feeling? Mild nausea all day/dry heaving. Vomited friday night after having some chili. It was so good but I guess it was too spicy for me. No more chili for me!
Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) June 6 for u/s and regular dr. appointment.
Favorite thing to wear right now? Anything with an elastic waistband. Sigh...

How far along are you? 13 weeks
Any milestones passed? We have passed our loss date, and now I am more pregnant than I have ever been before!
Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? Ummmm, not really.... I am finally weaning off the progesterone.
How are you feeling? I am still having a TON of food aversions and feeling nauseous for a good part of the day. I am really looking forward to wanting to eat again.
Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) May 19th for our NT scan and I think a consult with the high risk OB about my clotting disorder.
Favorite thing to wear right now? The less constricted the better, lately whenever I am at home I immediately change to running shorts and a T shirt with no bra

How far along are you? Just passed 38 weeks!!
Any milestones passed? Not really, still full-term
Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? Getting some serious-feeling contractions and low-down pressure sometimes. But my doctor checked me today and I'm still 1cm and 0%, just a little softer.
How are you feeling? Excited... tired... emotional... hungry LOL
Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) Next Monday, another weekly check-up. At that point I'll be officially allowed to go for an induction anytime I want, which is sort of an interesting option, but I'm pretty committed to my all-natural-birth wishes
Favorite thing to wear right now? Only my biggest, stretchiest, least-binding maternity clothes... even my maternity tank tops are too tight on me now

How far along are you? 35 weeks today!

Any milestones passed? most of them.. just a few more weeks till full term.

Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc) had my 35 week appt today, GBS swab done, got a baseline pre-eclampsia blood panel done just to make sure things look good (I had pre E with my DD and was delivered at 36w6d with her because of it) blood pressures are good and will hopefully get those results in a few days.

How are you feeling? pretty good, tired, big, uncomfortable, it's getting hard to pick up and carry my rowdy 30lb toddler and my pelvis aches at night.

Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) next monday for my 36 week check up with the midwives. I go every week now, eeek!

Favorite thing to wear right now? yoga pants, nursing sleep bra and maternity t shirt!

How far along are you? 18w3d

Any milestones passed? screening tests came back very good

Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? Yes- had the anatomy ultrasound last Thursday, and baby looks perfect! We did not find out the sex yet. I don't know if my dh can hold out the whole pregnancy, but we are keeping it a surprise for a little longer. All 1st and 2nd trimester screening greatly reduced the risk for chromosomal defects.

How are you feeling? Pretty good

Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) May 24 for routine prenatal visit

Favorite thing to wear right now? My maternity jean capri pants.
