How far along are you? 5 weeks 3 days
Any milestones passed? not yet, still waiting to reach SOMETHING good...lol
Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? I have my 'nurse' appointment this week, I am going to ask for an early ultrasound. I normally don't want them, but I feel this need to know the baby is developing. I have had some right sided pain that feels like ovulation pain, so I would sort of like to rule out ectopic.
How are you feeling? I am recovering froma cold, but other than that I feel pretty good.
Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) see above
Thing you are most excited for? hopefully getting to have an early ultrasound and see the baby and a heartbeat!

How far along are you? 24 weeks and change
Any milestones passed? Nothing new, but everyday with movement is exciting
Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? Well... I have been MIA for a bit as my in-laws have been here and we have had a house full of people. They headed off on their return cross-country journey this morning so things should return to "normal" around here. While they were here we had our gender reveal party and it is official... we are on team pink. DD is thrilled to welcome a little sister into our family - and so are we.
How are you feeling? Really good... with the exception that I am slowing down and my hips are sore at night making it challenging to sleep.
Next appointment and what for? June 3rd... my doc now has me on visits every two weeks. Normally this happens when you hit the third trimester, but she is erring on the side of caution with my history. Should have another U/S at about the 28 week mark.

Any milestones passed? Nothing new

Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? My husband felt the baby kick for the first time on Sunday, and my 7-year-old felt a kick today. I also saw my belly actually move today. HB at midwife appt today was 147.

How far along are you? 9 weeks 3 days

Any milestones passed?Waiting on that 2nd trimester...please, please, please!

Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? Nope

How are you feeling?Been really sick, lost 5 lbs so far...but yesterday was a much better day and so far today too. Of course this makes me nervous, but I'm trying to remain positive and hope it just means m/s will end early for me this go-round. I wish I had an appt for a heartbeat check...if I feel too much better I may just go in for peace of mind.

Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) June 13th, regular appt but he agreed another look at baby would be a good idea. So yay, another u/s!!

Thing you are most excited for? To start feeling movement so that I have that constant reassurance. This "limbo-land" is just awful. It was bad enough before I experienced a loss...but I'm driving myself insane with worry on most days at this point.
