Yeah, I see that same "requirement" for kicks, and I keep thinking that my babies are overachievers, lol.
Thanks! I'm lovin' it too, and it's a good name to share with the kids.

overachievers - by 24-26 weeks my babies have all given me no trouble at all finding 10 movements in 2 hrs - can't wait for that!
I've been feeling a lot of squirming and bumping around in there today, too

I get it mama. I'm sure we all do. And no worries about joining "early" - I certainly don't mind! I'm glad our group can be here for those who belong... as sad and horrible as it is to belong here.
No worries about the word throw up either - we all do that from time to time. It's just wonderful to have a safe place to spew.

Congrats on your new bean - for a sticky bean, and many months to come with it for you.

So far this one seems to be going ok. Tests have gotten darker & my breast tenderness is insane, but of course those signs are no guarantee as my 8w loss started out that way too. So I have a long way to go before I'm secure with this pregnancy, but I'm super excited to be here for now.
Welcome mama.

I called the doc and they sent me to the ultrasound place where I found out the baby had died. :/ sometimes I wish I could enjoy nausea free (or lesser nausea) days. :/
I've had those days. Which is why I'm grateful for my doppler. I know there is a baby in there with a beating heart and that gets me through the uncertain days.

I don't want you to leave. I think having the rainbow mamas stick around is encouraging. It's proof we can get through this.

I can remember moving it before 10 weeks... and now I'm getting really darn near 20 weeks - scary and amazing!
I'm not even comfortable yet putting a ticker in. I have a u/s on Wednesday, so maybe after I see a healthy baby I'll be ready for a little reality in my siggy.


Welcome Itasjoi. I know the feelings. I was very glad for this thread to have a place, especially early on, to express my hopes and fears.

I feel like we've been waiting too long for this not to be important.
So glad you're here with me!


Elena...when was your Levi born? My Levi is 2 also.

Ultrasound tomorrow.

I've walked out of an ultrasound to awful results many many times---listening to baby on the Doppler tonight has GREATLY lessened my anxiety about tomorrow! I know baby is alive---and kicking!!! Got a few goldfish flutters while laying here doing numbrix puzzles before I broke out the Doppler.

Now, lets just hope baby is growing perfectly! And I'm hoping for lots of good wiggles tomorrow morning too---and crystal clear pics too (hey, if I'm gonna think positive, might as well make it totally perfect, right?)


Also, progesterone suppository induced yeast infection (the first y.i. of my LIFE) is GONE using nothing more than high-dose OTC probiotics and eating a boat load of Greek yogurt! Seriously...NEVER want another one of those. All because I ran out of my preventative first -tri low-dose probiotics to fight constipation and I figured I hadn't been constipated, so no rush to get more til next shopping trip...3 days after I ran out I got my first symptoms of the y.i. ---sheesh!!! They could have warned me that that was a possible side effect!!! I'd have never run out!

I think a lot of mamas on this thread can relate to those feelings. Dont be afraid to feel whatever you need to- excitement or fear! Congrats again! So glad to see you on this side!

I totally understand that. With a few of my miscarriages, the spotting/bleeding started a day or 2 after "coming out" on here and adding a ticker to my siggy - it's always slightly anxiety-inducing to add it now!
that you get to see a healthy bouncing bean in there and feel a bit more comfortable to add him to your siggy - even if it's not in a ticker!

Awesome, thanks Amanda! I'll keep that in mind and be able to ask you gals to start them for me in another month or so!

He was born about a month before yours! June 14th, 2010 (and 11 days late at that!)

for a wonderful scan.

So glad you got rid of the YI rather easily! Hate those damn things. I've only ever had a few, and only when pregnant. They suck.

Cool! DD was 10 days late & DS was 13 days late. This one may never come out!

I honestly hope to go late again this time - a few more days pregnant
Although with Levi I had tons of anxiety going late, I don't think I would this time - I was trying for my first VBAC with him, and I was just more and more worried every day that it wasn't going to happen, seemed like I was having every odd against me for it to be unsuccessful. But it all went really well, and I'd love for it to happen again!
