Not a 2013 baby here, but kinda close.....
I have been lurking around this board for a while and cheering everyone on. I am due on Nov 13th of this year (35 weeks, 2 days today) but we dont' have a board for winter babies!
Just wanted to drop in and say hello and if anyone has questions, i've been through it all.
My hubby and I got pregnant in October of last year on our first try and were so excited. We unfortunately lost that baby at 8 weeks. I ended up having a missed miscarriage. We went in for our ultrasound at 6 weeks, 5 days and the baby was measuring 5 days behind. We saw the heartbeat and everything so we thought everything was ok. We went back 2 weeks later for an ultrasound and unfortunately, the heart had stopped. We were completely devastated and blindsided. We had told our families and close friends so we had to tell them we lost the baby which was even harder. I ended up having a d&c on Dec 5. It was the hardest thing we ever had to go through.
We ended up waiting 2 cycles and got pregnant again on our first try. Of course I was a nervous wreck before that first doctors appt. I ended up getting a doppler and was able to find the heartbeat at 8 weeks, 5 days! We had our doctors appt at 10 weeks and saw a very healthy baby on the screen. I listened to the heartbeat every day probably until about 20 weeks. It was so reassuring.....
Anyway, here we are about a month away from our due date and still can't believe it.
If you have any questions about anything, feel free to ask, I've been through it all...NT scan, GD test (passed the 1 hour!), 20 week ultrasound, feeling the first kick- you name it.
Best wishes to everyone!
