    @Ms.Mermaid: Stalking from the December board... We're planning on team green and I had to tell the OB today when she called with my NIPT results that I didn't want to know. Will totally do the same with the anatomy scan though! Do they still look in the genital area and just not say anything??

    @LindsayInNY: we were team green our first two times, they will look anyway but just not tell you. they have to check for any abnormalities. i think sometimes they tell you to look away, but my husband (a pediatrician) snuck a peak but thought he was looking at the heart, so its not always super obvious to the untrained (or even slightly trained) eye.

    @Silva: Haha, I love your husband's interpretation! That'll likely be us I'm sure we'll look and have no idea what we're looking at.

    @LindsayInNY: both times the tech had us close our eyes. Last time they just wrote “normal” in the file and so we didn’t risk the OB telling us.

    @Ms.Mermaid: I actually wondered if they wrote anything down. I feel like I’ve heard mixed answers. Good to know!

    @LindsayInNY: my SIL they keep almost slipping up, so it varies by practice.

    @LindsayInNY: they didn't write it in our file the first time. The second time there was a weird error, and the sex was printed twice in the electronic results that were posted to my online health account. The first line said Sex: Unreported, and the second line said Sex: Male. We kind of assumed it was a boy after that but nobody could ever confirm that it wasn't just a weird computer glitch because it wasn't written down anywhere else.

    I met with a urologist today at the encouragement of my midwife and I ended up crying in her office. If men peed uncontrollably when they sneezed, there would be a magic pill for this. Instead, I just have to go change my pants. I didn’t think there was some magic solution but I dunno, I hoped for some kind of “okay, this is what your birth plan should be to avoid further trauma” and I didn’t get that. Plus she said that she finds that how long people push for doesn’t decrease that much with subsequent babies so I should adjust my expectations. Also she mentioned that the only thing I can try to do is eat healthy to control the size of the baby which just made me feel like crap because i have already gained 27 pounds and im only 20 weeks and I started 10 pounds overweight.

    @Ms.Mermaid: It sounds like you need a more compassionate urologist! I'm due in Nov and ever since my son was both two years ago I've had issues peeing when I sneeze too. It was getting better till I got pregnant again. I also discovered that when you barf you can end up peeing yourself... exciting huh?!

    Right now I just use a liner and work on kegels. If I have bad issues after this birth I plan to get a referral to a physical therapist from my OB (or if it gets worse I'll see about doing so earlier). So I'd recommend talking to a physical therapist instead. I do also know some women do end up needing surgery to fix damage from labor! So I'd totally seek a second opinion if it's bothering you this much!

    And lastly you could tell the urologist to shove it about eating healthy to control the size of your baby. Many Many factors play into the size of your baby and your diet isn't the biggest one. I recall talking to a mom who was pregnant in the 80s and her doctor told her to take up smoking so her babies would be small - maybe you could run that by the urologist!

    @Ms.Mermaid: i agree that that is bullshit, and i'm sorry you had to deal with it. I'd look for a physical therapist who specializes in pelvic floor health.

    Finally started feeling the baby move last night. I thought I did before now but this time it was for certain the baby and not gas. Anatomy scan June 1st. Woohoo!

    Crazy thought- I tend to have my babies between 38-39 weeks. I might be having a baby 19-20 short weeks from now since tomorrow I’m 19 weeks.

    Next thought- let’s see those baby bumps! I will be taking a pic and posting tomorrow.

    @RKitty: I’ve done two rounds of pelvic floor PT with little success. I am at family camp with my cousin who had surgery post second pregnancy that resolved her issues that was different from what the urologist said, and it sounds like a good option. So I feel better.

    But omg you guys, I’m at family camp staying in a cabin and chasing kids and hiking back and forth to the dining hall and I’m SO TIRED and SO UNCOMFORTABLE. I’m rethinking all my summer pregnancy plans.

    Sorry I haven’t been around or even checking in! I have so much going on medically, between work and my other kids I’ve been exhausted!

    Anyway everything is going well. We found out about two weeks ago that baby #4 if a girl! So we will have two of each, which we are thrilled about! We have a name picked out that I don’t foresee use changing. My due date is 10/8, but because of everything else going on I won’t go past that date and maybe be induced as early as 10/1 (as of now, may change earlier). I’ve had uneventful inductions with every pregnancy so what’s one more?

    @alwayssunny722: Our 3rd wasn’t named until the day before we left the hospital. We just couldn’t agree on names. Ended up narrowing it down to two and drew best 3/5 from a hat. The name I favored won in the end.

    @Ms.Mermaid: I'm sorry PT didn't work for you, I have a few friends who have had success that route. I hope you get some answers soon!

    Had an ultrasound today. It went mostly well except for some reason E had extreme tachycardia. Waiting for the Dr. To call me on Monday to tell me what they are doing next. I’m so stinking worried even though the tech said it could be nothing. I just don’t know right now.

    @littleblessings: That is so never wracking to hear news like that with time to wait. Hope you've heard back today already and things are ok!

    @littleblessings: I'm so sorry, I hope you get more information soon

  25. littleblessings

    pear / 1736 posts

    @yogifish: still nothing yet. I see the busiest OB in my town so I’m not all that surprised but I want to know what the next step or steps are going to be. I just want it to be a freak thing that happened once and won’t happen again

  26. yogifish

    cherry / 125 posts

    @littleblessings: hopefully it's just a misread, but it is for sure scary to hear anything might be up with baby when there isn't much you can do about it expect hope and wait. Sending good thoughts and hope you hear back soon!

    @yogifish: it’s 2 and they close at 5. If I don’t get a call before 5 I’m going to cry and throw a fit tomorrow over the phone. I have like 0 patience lately.

    pomelo / 5807 posts

    @littleblessings: thinking of you- I'd give them a call if it was me. It sounds impossible to wait in your situation.

    We had our anatomy scan today. Everything looked good, but because of the baby's position she couldn't get a good picture of one part (I forget if it was umbilical or heart related....my son was there too, so I was a little distracted). She said she isn't worried, just wants a clear shot, so I will do another ultrasound at my next appointment (which won't be until I'm 25 1/2 weeks along because of vacation/scheduling! Yikes!)

    @yogifish: @Silva: they called at 3:10 and again at 3:40. I have an emergency ultrasound tomorrow at 4:15 unless there are cancellations in which they will bump me up further.

    @Silva: @yogifish: thank you ladies. Her heart looked normal on the ultrasound today. They will continue to monitor it to make sure. I’m so relieved! Attaching some pictures from the ultrasound. The bottom is her heart

    @littleblessings: so glad to hear everything looks good! I have an in detail fetal echo tomorrow to check our little guy's heart, it's neat to see, but nerve wracking until they tell you all looks good.

    Anatomy scan went well today besides the fact this little bugger was facing my back and they couldn’t get a good look at baby’s heart- so we go back in 4 weeks to make sure everything else looks good. And we are having a BOY!!!

    @Kmomartin: yay!

    Is anyone else already horribly uncomfortable and dreading being pregnant the rest of the summer? And I had to take off my wedding ring bc of the swelling!

    @Kmomartin: Congrats! boys are fun.

    @Ms.Mermaid: Ugh yes. I am already having terrible swelling in my feet and legs (heart problem related) and not looking forward to the heat amplifying it even more.

    @Ms.Mermaid: it’s not gonna be fun! and we don’t have central air this time around

    Anatomy scan went great today! Loved seeing baby boy move around. Looking very healthy, 12 ounces.
