Sorry Momo. There's always next month... enjoy a few glasses of wine while you still can.

Sorry Momo. Getting your hopes up every month can be exhausting. Maybe you already are, but have you tried charting your temperature?

Thanks ladies, can't do wine because of the candida so I will indulge in sf cookies. We didn't try much this month so that could be why but I will look into the temperature tracking.

I had a too early ultrasound and it is still up in the air on whether or not the babe is still in my gestational sac. I have a tilted uterus and they couldnt see it at 7 weeks. I am going to a midwife tomorrow to get some advice and will be almost 10 weeks. I have been uncertain about what is going to happen for 4 weeks now and it is killing me. Hopefully everything is okay but if it's not I am just going to have to deal with it and keep trying. What other choice do I have right? I have still been having pregnancy symptoms. My breasts are really sore and bigger, I am not having morning sickness but a little nausous because of certain smells, pooping sucks and my belly is getting a bit bigger.

Anyway, wish me luck.

Good luck Tank! I hope everything turns out okay. Did they not do a vaginal ultrasound the first time?

Oh gosh that's tough. I'm a week behind you and have been so frustrated that my healthcare provider (soon to be ex-healthcare provider, bwahahhahahaaa) refuses to do u/s's until 10 weeks.. which will be almost twelve by the time we get back in town from the holidays. We have to face either telling the family before we've even heard a heartbeat or wait until we can't tell them in person.

Good luck and I hope everything works out for the best and you get some comfort/resolution quickly!!

the midwife seems to think that because I haven't had any bleeding that there is nothing to be worried about. I have another appt next week and maybe I will ask them to use a doppler.

the standard here is 18-20 weeks! The only reason I went for one at 12 weeks was because I had cramping and bleeding :( which resulted in me finding out that the fetus hadn't progressed past 7 weeks :( next time around I will be demanding an early ultrasound to make sure things are going smoothly.

Well that is good to hear! You should definitely request the Doppler.

i'm 35 wks tomorrow, and i have entered into a state of complete and utter laziness. i feel like it's way too early to be this sloth, but between the fatigue, my spazzy toddler, the holidays, and all the things i should get done but haven't my mind overloaded and has shut down. also, i might be imagining it, but i think i'm bigger than i was at 40 wks during my last pregnancy. i look ridiculous trying to get my boots on because bending over is nigh impossible. also-also, i'm starting to get really freaked out about my vbac prospects. getting a c-section wasn't horrible, but i don't really want to deal with that kind of recovery with a toddler and newborn. still, if i go through all the work of labor again only to have it end that way... i think i'm going to be kind of remorseful i didn't just schedule a c-section and avoid all the pain and uncertainty of labor. i wish i felt more confident i could get a baby out my vag, ya'll.


sorry it didn't work out this time, momo. don't put too much pressure on yourself and enjoy the baby making process!

tank, fingers crossed for you. i hope you get good news yet this week. i'm glad your midwife was positive.

My understanding is that most providers don't want to see you until you are 8 to 10 wks, and usually U/S's before 18 wks are for if you don't know your dates or they have reason to believe something may be wrong. The dopplers don't even usually pick up heartbeats until 9 wks at the earliest (with both my babies that was too early).

isybb, 35 weeks is definitely not too early to be lazy! You are so close! Can Milo help you put your boots on? ;) With regards to the VBAC, I don't know what I would do in your situation, it's a hard decision to make. Has your doctor or midwife given you reassurance that it will probably be okay (I guess they feel pretty confident about it if they are even giving you the option!)?

I say rest while you can, bobbybrown. Take a nap, lady. I hope you get the birth experience you want. I'm sending confident vibes to your vag.

thanks, ladies. i appreciate the vag vibes, mitten! i have actually cried some days because i want nothing more than to take a nap, but felix is just too hard to work down for one. sometimes (most days) i let him watch tv just so i can lay quietly on the couch.

my midwives/ob have a very high rate of successful vbacs and are extremely vbac positive, and i am a good candidate based on several factors (time lapsed betwixt kids, age, reason i had my first c-section, etc). i really do want a vbac, but i think since the prospect of labor is looming closer i've been reflecting on the last time and psyching myself out a bit. if only childbirth was predictable and easy to control!

isybb, I'm sending you good VBAC vibes! It really is a tough decision to make, but just remember that recovery from a vaginal birth is supposedly much better than a c/s. It's hard to wait and not know exactly what's going to happen, but it sounds like you have a great support system wanting you to have the birth that you want and deserve! Lots of love ansd strength heading your way! Your body was made to do this - you can do it!

thanks for your kind words, fb! the faster recovery time is a huge motivator for me. i am oh so pleased with the hospital birthing center i'm at, and i feel good knowing they won't recommend surgery unless it is truly necessary. we're all going to do our best to avoid that, and it makes me very excited.

i think part of what makes me doubt myself is that most people i talk to irl don't really seem to get why i wouldn't just want a scheduled c-section. i'd just feel better if i had more people cheering me on instead of having to explain myself over and over. why must they all make me doubt the mighty power of the vag?!

I'm 10 weeks today and I think (knock on wood) my nausea dissapeared a few days ago, hooray!

Have we heard from Pinko in a few days?!

I haven't seen her here for a few days, and I've been sort of obsessively checking for signs of Baby Pinko. Maybe she's just caught up in moving and the holidays, though.

Ha! I'm still baby-less. You guys guessed right - just busy with the move and holiday stuff. Baby Pinko is more than welcome to hang out in utero until I get my new house in some kind of order. Of course, by saying that I probably just jinxed myself.

Good luck, Pinko! Make sure you take lots of sleep while you can, though. That's more important than organizing your house. Other people can do that for you, but only you can make sure you're rested. The night before I went into labor, I stayed up late cooking, thinking I could nap the following afternoon. Instead, I had to go through 20 hours of labor on almost no sleep, so by the time things got difficult, I was really worn down. You never know when Baby Pinko will decide it's time, so rest, rest, rest!
