I haven't checked this thread in a while! Love to all to new babies/mamas!

If I ever have another girl, her name will be Julia. It is an excellent name. :-)

Heard the heartbeat which put me at ease. :D With my very first pregnancy I had a missed miscarriage. The fetus died at 9 weeks and we didn't find out till 11. When I had to go in for an ultrasound for a screening, a heartbeat wasn't found. It was very devastating because I was so close to the 2nd trimester and thought I was safe. Because my body didn't miscarry naturally and it was getting to a month, I had to have (and wanted because I just wanted it to be over and move on) a D&C. So I get a little paranoid in the first trimester. Not spotting does not give me any comfort because there was none with my first m/c

But today at 12 weeks we heard the heart beat and I feel like I can relax:) They found it very quickly too so I didn't have to feel nervous for too long. With my first child (2nd pregnancy) it always felt like they took forever to find the heart beat with the Doppler. My OB also only does ultrasounds at 20 weeks unless one is requested. (With my second pregnancy, they did one at 8 weeks because of the previous missed M/C.)

Excellent Kal! I haven't had a miscarriage and I was still a nervous wreck and made my husband come to the first trimester US appointment with me in case they found bad news - I'm so glad things are going well for you this time around.

Yay Kal! That's awesome news. I have a good friend who's going through somewhat similar circumstances and just reached about the same point in her pregnancy!

Skipping a first trimester u/s is a little surprising to me since most midwives and OBs seem to want an accurate due date, in case the LMP isn't reliable. (I tend to have heavy implantation bleeding right around normal period time so i could probably very easily end up being wrong about dates in the event of an unplanned pregnancy) When I was pregnant with my older daughter I was super irritated because the army hospital didn't do a nuchal translucency screen unless the initial blood work came back high…but they did do a much lower res dating u/s.

AFAIK most insurance doesn't cover a dating ultrasound; my midwives behaved as if none did. I think that's half the reason the nuchal translucency U/S might be pushed hard, because it fulfills the purpose of getting dates while also being covered by insurance. Now that there are better genetic abnormality tests I'm sure I'll skip any future first trimester ultrasounds. My LMP dating was spot on anyway.

Week 12 and 13 have been the worst! I was hoping that first trimester symptoms would be decreasing, but starting at week 12 I have had a constant headache and have been lightheaded. My stomach also feels acidic and I've been very tired. I could barely get out of bed this morning and I took a nap in the middle of the day. I might go get tums. I've always been stubborn about taking medicine mostly out of laziness but I'll probably give in. There is still some nausea and the sight of onions still makes me nauseous. I just read that the second trimester technically starts at week 14. Next Saturday I'll be there!
