I have been pretty MIA lately from the boards and the internet in general. October is always a very busy month for us with our sons birthday, halloween/fall events and such.

I had my 12 week appt on Wednesday and it went very well! I got to hear the hb on the doppler They had a student try to find it first but he couldn't, then the nurse found it...I thought I was all done after that (sat up and fixed my pants etc lol) then the doctor came in and he had trouble finding it. So I got a quick ultrasound...and the HB was 165 My lower stomach was kinda sore after all that haha.

We even got to see the baby kick and bounce around some which was really awesome to see. Made me feel so much better.

My next appt is Nov 2 for the quad screen (blood test) and then my fetal scan (finding out the gender) would be at the very end of November around 18 - 20 weeks. I think 20 weeks he said so Nov 30...I wish I didn't have to wait that long!

I also will be weaning off the prometrium over the next two weeks. They said I could stop taking it immediately but that I could wean off of them if it would make me feel better. It kinda worries me to stop taking them...but it is supposed to be safe now. Just hard when I know it has helped me sustain the pregnancy this long.

Anyway here is a photo from the 12 week ultrasound. I am feeling very positive about this pregnancy now. So happy to almost be in the second trimester:



Oh and after our appt we went car shopping and found a new (used) car! I am so excited. We just have one car right now, a Nissan Sentra, and it just is barely cutting it as far as room. So it def would not work with 2 kids. We got a 06 Jeep Liberty Renegade. Eep!

I am glad that your appointment went so well. It would be scary to wean off of the prometrium. I would do the wean rather than the instant stopping of it as well!

YAY for an awesome appt! I was told at my peri appt on the 29th that I could stop my Crinone. I had just filled it, so I kept taking it every night this past week. I'm going to start weaning tonight. I'm honestly scared. He also told me I could stop the baby aspirin, but that's not happening!

YES. Ours is a 2004. I feel like we really need a van...but I am not sure I am ready for a van just yet hehe. I am sure all that space is freaking awesome though. Prob when number 3 is here lol...we will need a van.

yay for a great appt & hearing hb on doppler! Congrats on shopping for a car...we need to do that too, but probably won't get motivated until early next year. A bigger vehicle is def a necessity with 2 kids..heck i think it's a necessity with just the one i have

This is awseome news
good luck on the weaning off. My dr said I will be stopping it at 12 weeks too. I wont be able to wean though because I am only using 1 100mg pill at night.

My Crinone is a gel dose that's hard to judge in the prefilled applicator. I'm going to do every other night and then every two nights and so on. Could you do something like that with the 100mg pills?

No its a really small round gel cap pill.
I am not to worried about the progestrone, I think the ticket for me is the Lovenox shots my DR just put me on the progeatrone because he said he was not taking any chances this time.

Congrats mama!! So glad things are going well

I was terrified coming off the prometrium as well. I weaned myself down over about 3 weeks. And things obviously went fine. But it was scary
