I hope you feel like absolute crap tomorrow - sounds so strange to say that, lol - and get some reassurance that things are okay in there with your bean.

So at least we're good financially and it takes some worries off my shoulders because my boss will be able to hire a maternity replacement Still a weird feeling that I'll be a SAHM until baby turns 2. But not a bad thing for sure!
Stupid HG. I'm so sorry you're having to deal with it. I can't imagine being sick like that.
for the leave working out for you! That's gotta be a bit of a relief!

I've heard of that happening with other babies after a loss, too. I'm kinda excited to see if it happens with Hiccup.
Actually, I think Hiccup looks like Elli on the u/s (and no, my babies haven't all looked the same on u/s!)

Last night as I was sitting there, I felt baby wiggling around in my belly for about 10 minutes. Pure bliss. I'll be 15 weeks on Wed and I don't remember wiggles happening this early with other pregnancies, maybe I'm just more in tune with my body this time. I don't know, but it was really wonderful to feel baby moving around in there.

It certainly helps make things more real and calling him by his name and talking to him is just what I needed to get out of this funk. DH has a permagrin too lol. We're going to tell our families at Christmas.
Congrats on your not-so-shy baby boy!

Will I be able to go back to work, care for myself or my family again?
Unfortunately, yes it will likely be a problem for the remainder of this pregnancy, and likely with any future pregnancies. It may or may not go away after birth, there's no way to tell until you're there, kwim?
I have weirdness in my left hip/pelvis, much worse in pregnancies, that gives me horrid pain, and sometimes my hip will either completely give out (which is just annoying!) or kinda "freeze up" and get stuck in a position. It's bothered me with all my pregnancies, and doesn't go away when I'm not pregnant, though it's not as bad without the extra weight in my pelvis and hormones relaxing joints.

I did have one pregnancy nearly pain/problem free - with DS2. We were going to a chiropractor at that point in time and would see him every couple weeks. By the end of the pregnancy I was going in 2-3 times each week for an adjustment - but it was totally worth it!
I don't know if that's an option for you or not, but it definitely made a difference for me.

AFM - Anyone else not thrilled to hear about the new royal addition? I am already terrified of loosing this child, now either way I will be reminded of this child for the rest of my life. Which will really stink if I do end up loosing this child.
With a normal pregnancy you have appts every 4 weeks until 26 weeks, then every 2 weeks until 36 weeks, then weekly until baby is born.
Now that I've typed that out - crap. I'm getting close to every 2 weeks!

I don't pay that much attention to the royals, so it wouldn't feel like a reminder baby for me. I'm kinda glad for them that they're actually pregnant now and the tabloids can stop trying to magically "make" her pregnant every other month!

AFM: I was in to see my Dr last Thursday and he got a letter of referral sent to my OB that day. Today I got an appt card in the mail from the OB - for the 10th!
That's likely normal for most people/OBs, but with Levi's pregnancy I got referred to him at 24 weeks and then they "couldn't fit me in" until I was 35 weeks along! So this is like... whoa.
