I had my 1st appointment today. Everything went beautifully. Got an u/s and dh got to be there for it. Hearbeat at 150bpm. Measuring exactly 7w4d Only ONE baby

I was so afraid we might have twins. I already even stalked the mommies of multiples board for details on vehicles that fit 3 carseats. LOL So glad, that was just a fear and not intuition.

I got a Zofran script and took the first one already. What a difference! I think I might actually be able to help dh with the laundry, dishes, child care and other daily tasks.

The u/s did reveal some trapped blood so my midwife told me that as fetus moves up in the uterus, some of the blood will begin leaking out. She told me not to freak out when I start spotting. (She also told me "no SEX"). The same thing happened with Makenna, so I'm a bit more prepared. (Remind me when I start freaking out though, OK?)

This is my BIG milestone. With my missed m/c, we never got a heartbeat or even a fetal pole. I'm feeling SOOOOO much better.

My instinct tells me BLUE. But I had the same instinct with my daughter.
I would be THRILLED to have another girl. My SIL had a girl on Monday, so it would be cool for all the cousins of similar age to all be girls. (Her other cousins are 6yo and 20yo.)

Thanks, Laurie... I'm still praying for Chloe. Did I ever tell you that Chloe was one of our top three names? We ended up going with Makenna, obviously. Hang in there, girlie!
