NEW MEMBER SURVEY:

1. Name or nickname? Camille
2. Date you are expecting? 02/13/2010
3. What was your reaction when you found out? A mixture of horror and joy
4. How long did it take you to conceive? Not long. We weren't trying, but we weren't NOT trying. It only took a couple of times before I conceived.
5. First baby or second or third etc? First
6. What are your thoughts about being pregnant and/or becoming a mom? At first, I was in a constant state of disbelief. I've always wanted to be a mother, but I've been so sick with this pregnancy, it's been awful. The first month was okay. The 2nd through the fourth were awful. I was sick all of the time. I threw up so violently, it scared people. The fifth month it subsided a little. At the beginning of November I was hospitalized with blood sugars in the 500s (normal is 60-100), at the end of November, I was hospitalized again and they found stones in my gallbladder. So, most of my pregnancy, I've been convinced I have a horrible little parasitic monster growing in my belly trying to kill me. Until I saw the ultrasound and started feeling her move. But it's still been a miserable existence for me, and I'm so ready to be done. :(
In addition to that, I get nervous sometimes. While she's inside of me, I feel like she's safe and fine...but on the outside, she'll be so helpless and there are so many things to keep her safe from.
7. Any other personal info you'd like to share? For example, your age, location, or marital status?
8. Any other things about your situation or yourself that you'd like to share or that you think we should know? I'm just lonely and depressed. I had to quit my job at the beginning of December and it's made me feel useless, on top of feeling so crappy.

I would just like to say that I am very happy to finally see a new pregnancy community. I recently left two pregnancy communities (to be unnamed) because of very rude and mean people. This community seems promising and I am glad to join.

So I haven't posted in a while...just thought I would give you all a quick update and ask a quick question.

I had my Nuchal Translucency scan this afternoon. Everything went really well. Apparently, my uterus is way in the back right now so it was hard to see the baby with an abdominal u/s, so they did a vaginal one. The doctor said that it was nothing to worry about. My baby was being so stubborn. The lil one did not want to move to the position it needed to be in. It took about 35 minutes until the doctor was able to measure the back of it's spine. Once the doctor was about to give up, the baby was dancing and kicking and punching all over the place! The babys heartbeat is strong and everything looks healthy right now. I even got an early guess as to what I am having. The doctor said he saw a penis=) I know its really early though (I am 12w2d) so I am not getting too excited over that just yet. My husband is though=) The doctor also told me he saw a cyst on the baby's umbilical cord. He told me that this in nothing to worry about right now. Most likely, it should go away before my anatomy ultrasound, but its something to watch. That made me a little scared.

After the NT scan, I had an appointment with my OB. Turns out I am O-. Apparently, if my baby ends up being +(which is most likely), my body may try to fight it off..so I have to get a Rhogam shot. I also tested positive for group b strep. I have to go on antibiotics now and when I go into labor. All in all everything seems to be healthy.

Onto the exciting part...Collapse )
