How far along are you? 10w 2d
Any milestones passed? nothing new
Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? not really
How are you feeling? a little better -- i still puke at least once per day, but when I'm not puking, I have longer periods of feeling good
Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) 8/30 -- regular
How are you coping with the hot summer weather? strangely enough, it hasn't bothered me yet. I'm not outdoors too much (it is FLORIDA), but there have actually been more times when I've been COLD instead of hot. The only times I really get hot are when I'm puking.

How far along are you? 9 weeks, 5 days
Any milestones passed? No but I'm getting closer to another one. My first m/c I had an u/s at 12 weeks but the baby only measured 10 weeks. I'll be 10 weeks on Wednesday. After Wednesday I only have one more hurtle before I'm farther along than any of my losses.
Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? I rented a doppler and I'm loving it! I've only used it every few days or so but it's so nice to hear that little sound. I think it's reassuring when it's a nice, strong h/b. It took me forever to find it this morning but I wasn't stopping until I did. =)
How are you feeling? My nausea is about gone. I'm still really tired all the time and I nap everday. My bb's aren't as sore as they were for awhile. I can sleep without a bra on now again.
Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) My next appt is at 11 weeks and 1 day on Sept 1st. That's how far along I was with my last loss. I hope she'll schedule my 12 week u/s for the following week. I think once I can have a successful 12 week u/s I'll feel like this one is my rainbow baby...
How are you coping with the hot summer weather? I stay inside! LOL I work during the week indoors and when I get home I pretty much nap. Around where I live the weather has been nice enough to leave the a/c off though. At night it gets down in the 60's so it's great sleeping weather with a fan in the window sucking that cool air in.

How far along are you? 9w3d
Any milestones passed? I've passed the point when pink spotting started. And you better believe I've been very closely inspecting this past weekend. Tomorrow is the point where it picked up and an ultrasound diagnosed the miscarriage.
Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? I was at the doctor's on Friday and I have an infection. I'm hoping the antibiotics clear it up, because it's linked with 2nd trimester miscarriage.
How are you feeling? Woozy and queasy. I expect the zofran to be wearing off shortly, but I'm trying to hold out in hopes of getting the intestines to do some work before taking another zofran that'll put them to sleep again.
Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) A week from today! Intake appointment so about 900 blood tests and hopefully find out that the infection is gone.
How are you coping with the hot summer weather? The past few weeks haven't been bad. Not that I've been outside. I have a thing against being outside/in public when having to puke.

And I get chills when puking. How funny.

How far along are you? 19 weeks 2 days
Any milestones passed?tomorrow is the half way mark before my scheduled c-section
Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? nope - this is the quiet stage after last weeks excitement
How are you feeling? Good! It's all starting to feel real. Started organizing clothes and getting ready to tackle the nursery in a couple of weeks.
Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) Repeat anatomy scan next tuesday to check the heart. Nothing to worry about but it was too hard to get a good look at 18 weeks. (If this isn't as normal as the doctor said it was, don't tell me!)
How are you coping with the hot summer weather? Hasn't been as hot in NJ over the last few weeks - i can handle anything below 90.

How are you coping with the hot summer weather? Not very well. I live in Florida and it is the hottest summer I can remember, during the only pregnancy that I've actually had to so through the whole summer. I'm trying to stay inside as much as possible and only take walks just before sunset.

How far along are you? Should be 6 weeks as of tomorrow (tues)

Any milestones passed? Not yet

Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? No

How are you feeling? Alright...I have been off work for a week so I am kind of dreading going back to work tomorrow even though I only work 2 days a week...how lame is that haha! I've had very sore breasts for a week now...and light cramping. I wish I had some morning sickness though. It would put me a little more at ease.

Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) This Wednesday 8/24. Pap/Ultrasound and hopefully go over all the stuff I need to know to start my lovenox injections. I am praying we have a HB on Wed. I am starting to get a little nervous.

All my losses have been right at/around 7.5 weeks so I hope we can see a HB and get me on lovenox asap. I am getting a little anxious about the shots too.

How are you coping with the hot summer weather? Lots and lots of a/c. Me + Heat = No Bueno. I am day dreaming of fall. Not much longer!

How far along are you? 35 weeks 4 days
Any milestones passed? nope
Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? Good appt yesterday. Fundal height of 34. Heart beat was fast, but not sure of the BPM, plus he was "kicking" at the probe while we were listening
How are you feeling? Tired and sick of work!
Next appointment and what for? Sept 6th, regular
How are you coping with the hot summer weather? with A/C at work and by freezing my poor DH at night (every morning I find him curled in all the blankets up to his ears lol....I call him my "corpse-sicle"). It's not really the "summer heat" though, it's more preggo hormones...I get hot flashes when it's a cold morning and can't even cool down standing in front of the A/C sometimes.
