I"m down to the nitty gritty now. I have 21 days left and I think about 5 more doctor visits. I have to go 2X a week now. They say it's because I'm over 35 and have had a previous csection. One day is my short day and only consists of a NST and then the other day is my long day which consists of US, NST, and talk to the doctor. I have my next 3 appts scheduled now and still have to schedule 2 more before baby is born. My next appt is a quick one and I'm happy about it too. Last appt I was told that baby weighed 6# 9oz. I didn't ask how much he weighed yesterday. I will ask next Friday at my next long visit.

Had my 20 week checkup yesterday and.......it's a BOY!! I'm excited and scared at the same time. Hubby is freaking me out a bit but it will be all good. Just excited now about the baby. Doctor said everything looks realy good but I'll need to come back so the tech can get measurments on his heart. He wouldn't cooperate with her yesterday towards the end. I enjoyed the slide show but he seemed to get a bit peeved after a bit. Today he was awake at work and decided he didn't like how I was sitting and kicked me. Next appt US only 10/4 then 24 week checkup 2 more weeks.

I had my first doctor visit yesterday and it went fairly well. All is good with the baby and I even got a few pics of it too. I go again week 12 (in 3 weeks) then the next ultrasound is week 16 I believe. I'm pretty excited so far.

My first real doctor visit is Tuesday. I'm getting excited to see the baby for the first time. I will get a more clearer due date so I'm excited. I will also get more information on what to expect this go round since I'm older, had a LEAP procedure done, and this will be second csection. Fingers and toes crossed for a healthy uneventful pregnancy.

Ok I did see the heartbeat again but we weren't able to hear, so Doc says, I swore I did for a second before she moved on! So had a sonogram and my very LO is a mover like my Son was. Another sonogram in 3 weeks, can't wait, then the next one after that we should be able to tell gender!

I will be thinking of you, keep us posted and know we are here for support. I understand the not wanting to tell anyone, I told my Mom right away and in turn she told everyone! i kind of felt like ok now I can't let everyone down, and in know way should we feel bad about what is in God's plans for us! Best Wishes!

I will be having my first dr. appointment on June 2nd. I am a bit nervous, since the last one I went to confirmed that I had miscarried the night before. I am just praying to make it past that point in this one. emoticon So, I am just keeping my fingers crossed and praying like crazy. Also, trying not to be a total freak about it. Week 5 starts tomorrow and this time around, I am afraid to tell most people for fear of looking like a total asshat. Right now, only my DH, and a couple of other people know based on neccessity.

Had my first sonogram today. I thought it was too early to see anything, but Doc wanted to see the sac was formed at least and we did! I did my blood work and have another appt. next week. Here we go, because of my age and weight the appts begin and will be often!

Went for my 6 month checkup on yesterday. Still have a few fibroids in my uterine wall but nothing to be concerned about. Was told that if I haven't conceived by April 2009, will be referred to a Reproductive Endocrinologist. Was told to purchase an OPK yesterday. Interest as I'm already on CD12.

Went to my 1st OB appt. today (8 weeks.) Got an ultrasound and got to see the heartbeat. Had about 8 vials of blood taken and all the other fun stuff, like PAP, etc. But I got my official starting weight. 181. Ugh. Well, with my first pregnancy I started at 170 and went up to around 220. I'll just keep working on keeping it minimal.

At my last Dr. appt. and sonogram, I did the glucose testing and my results were not good. Should of been under 130 my level was 167. So today I had to go for the 3 hour test. I went to the lab and they drew blood, then I waited and hour and they drew it again, it went on two more times for a total of 4 times! It was the longest 3 hours of my life. Te worst part I had to fast for 12 hours, my baby boy was kicking up a storm letting me know he was hungry and then I didn't get to eat for another 4 hours so all I had in my stomach was a nasty Glucose drink in a 16 hour period. It was terrible. I will learn the results tomorrow.

A little sore from playing Wii, but other than that no complaints!
I know that everyone at the shower is going to be so excited and happy for you! Can't remember if your husband has any boys or not. I'm sure he's walking around like Superman right along about now! Many blessing to you and your new son!

Well good news when we went to vote no waiting what so ever! Even more good news, this last sonogram showed It's a Boy! All is well, heartbeat and fluid. He is a regular little wiggler at 2-1/2 pounds, it is such an awesome feeling! Now 3 days til shower, I am going to announce the gender as a surprise at the party, can't wait. So how is everyone else doing?

One week til my appointment, can't wait to find out the gender it is so exciting! Getting out there to wait in line to vote today. I am sure I will be running to the bathroom at least twice and husband will have to hold my spot, also taking a lawn chair so I can sit while waiting or my ankles will be balloons before we're through! ;)

I was able to change my appt to before the shower, hopefully my little one will behave this time and we can find out the gender to announce at my shower. I was thinking of handing out Pink or Blue somethings and seeing if someone says why this color, because everything else right now is of neutral theme. This will also be be my husbands first time at an US. I can't wait to see his reaction. He was unfortunate in his first marriage and births of his other 2 children as he was in the service and gone a lot so this is his first time really being involved in it all.

I had a regular OB aptt. yesterday and they gave me the Glucose drink to drink an hour before my next appt in November for my Gestational Diabetes test. They also set up my third Sonogram to find out the gender since my LO didn't cooperate the last time. At first I didn't care what the sex was, now I am excited to find out. Unfortunately the sonogram is after my baby shower by 3 days, I am tempted to call and see if I can get in a week sooner, it would be fun to surprise everyone at the shower with the news of the Gender. But with doing the test the same day that might have to be done at a certain week, like I think in your 28th week. ??

Thank you and well I saw the Pediatrician yesterday, it ended up being two days aftr my OB appt. But I met her for all of 2 minutes, our meeting consisted of her asking "How far along are you?, Where are you having the baby? and who is your Dr? then she said not to worry about my Doc retiring someone will take over. But my insurance, as most of his patients have also is limited so the Doc is having a hard time finding someone to to take over willing to take it. I am going to start looking for another Doc just in case. Anyway that was all she asked then she said ok see you after the baby is born just tell them I am your pediatrician and they'll call me and that was that. I guess I should of went prepared with questions but honestly I don't have any for her right now.
My next appt. is on Monday not with a Dr. but with the hospital to check out the Maternity area and look into some classes that offer free stuff after you complete them like a car seat and breast pump. I wasn't going to take any classes but for that stuff I will!

Good News! All is well with our little one! Everything checked out as normal or better at my sonogram today. Maybe now I can get some sleep, these last couple of months waiting for today has been so stressful as most of you know. Not that it mattered because I just wanted to hear he or she was healthy but we could not find out the sex anyway because he or she wouldn't stop moving around and was being very playful, we have ourselves a little mover and groover! I could see him/her grabbing his/her feet with his/her hands and turning his/her head toward our voices. It was amazing to watch! Due Date remains the same Feb. 7, 2009!

Nothing like a good bit of stress to keep the mind ticking! Sounds like they've got some explaining to do. At least you found out now and not in December or February I guess. Good Luck with your next visit. emoticon

I found a Pediatrician two doors down from my OB. I will have my first consult the same day as my next OB appt. and sonogram on the 23rd. But the person who took my appt. for the Pediatrician informed me that my OB was retiring in December! Hellloooo, I am due in Feb. Why wasn't this mentioned to me? I sure hope they have a Dr. to take over for him in the same office at the same hospital. I have a list of questions a mile long for everyone in that office when go in next!

I want it to a surprise too, everyone says "You should find out so you know what to buy." Well I just want it to be healthy and don't they live in onesies forever anyway,I can buy girls or boys clothes later. I registered for my shower already which isn't til Nov. (A little over excited but it will come quicker than we know.) My Mom wanted to wait til Jan. after the holidays but I am almost due then, I need to get my nursery together before then and she had hers late when she had me and ending up not even being able to go to it because she was in labor that day! Well, the Holidays is a good excuse to get it done early. ;) And I did neutral colors for the crib, etc. which I prefer. I am not into all the really foo foo stuff! 9lbs. Wow! :)

Had a regular OB appt. today, was hoping for another sonogram but they said not til week 20 in another month. They are killing me, I am so impatient. I want to see my little one. I did get to hear the heartbeat again though it was at 150 which is good. Still in disbelief this is even happening!
