Well, we just got back from our first appointment, and everything went well!

Chessa is 25lbs, and about 30in long now, and in the 95th-98th percentile for everything. The hubby pointed out that she's almost half of how tall he is! (He's 6'1", once DD hits 36in, she'll be 3ft tall!) Everything with Chessa is great, she's learning well, and doesn't have any medical issues at all. We have definitely, truly been blessed (I also don't have many medical issues, and never have...so I'm thankful that Chessa is taking after me!)

Anyways, the new baby is almost 7weeks along (on thursday), and our nurse AND our doctor were both shocked to see me back in so soon! I had my IUD taken out September 7th...so needless to say, my new nickname is fertile myrtle. Haha. I feel kinda bad though, cause our dr's nurse is trying for another baby now too, and she's not having any luck =(

Our dr just basically went over all the basics, that we've been through once already. Nothing new Our next appointment is November 23rd, and I'm hoping we get to hear the heart beat(s) at that appointment (I also get to have a pap at that appointment...joy of joys! =/ ), and we will have our first ultrasound at around 18 to 20 weeks (end of January) to check up on him/her/them

Just thought I'd share how everything went! Hope everyone else is having a great first trimester! (despite the morning sickness, crampiness, etc etc! )

Yay, congrats! =) Yeah, that was probably my favorite part with Chessa, was feeling her move. After I had her, I missed that sooooo much!

My first appointment was on the 19th of October and I was 7weeks 4 days. I had an ultra sound and couldn't hear the heartbeat but It was going strong:-) I had my mirena taken out on the 25th of august and was pregnant the next month:-) my next appointment is on the 15th of November and I will be able to find out the sex in the 2nd week of January right near my birthday:-)

Aww I'm glad you're all doing well! Are you feeling great? Morning sickness? Cramping? Heart burn?

My first appointment is on Nov 4th, I'm 7w2d right now, so I will be 8w4d for my appointment and I will probably find out then when my first ultrasound will be :) If they don't do an ultrasound around 8 weeks it's usually around 12 weeks, so I'm guessing my first ultrasound will be at the end of November or early December.

My drs office has a doppler machine (I think that's what it's called) that I will be able to hear the heart beat with on the 4th, I'm so excited for that ♥ I know I'm gonna burst into tears like a total weenie!


I know what you mean about feeling bad because you know someone else is trying to have a baby. A friend of mine recently had a miscarriage after her and her husband had been trying for nearly 9 months to get pregnant. I stopped taking the pill in July and I got pregnant at the beginning of September.

She has acted happy about it, but I don't talk to her about anything to do with my pregnancy because she gets distance and cold with me... it's kind of put a lil riff between us that I'm not sure can be helped, or how it can be helped :\

yay! I'm so glad to hear that everything went well! :D I still haven't had my first appt and I'm 9 weeks today! I'll have it on the 2nd...we got pregnant pretty fast too when I had my Mirena taken out so we were really lucky...I'm deffinatly NOT looking forward to the pap :O and I'm happy to say that I'm still NOT puking and my cramping is like COMPLETLEY gone! :D we should be able to find out as soon at Dec 28th with an ultrasound what we are having...we already had a first ultrasound and that went well. I was 7w2d and the heartbeat was already 137 so I'm hoping what they say about a "lower" heart rate meaning its a boy. I'll keep my fingers crossed :D
