Wow - 12 weeks!

I’m still here wondering if this is actually going to happen. I had my first OB appointment last Thursday. They did all the normal stuff like a pap and gave me tons of information. Then the OB said she would use the Doppler just for my peace of mind. Well, because of my tilted uterus she couldn’t find the heartbeat so I got an U/S! Everything is perfect and I am now measuring on schedule (11w4d on Thursday). Today I hit that infamous 12 week mark! I am just amazed that I have made it this far!


At the OB appointment the dr asked me if I was going to breastfeed. I was a little shocked that she asked me about something that was so far down the road. I have not really thought about anything past the 12 week mark let alone after the baby was actually born. I answered yes because I always assumed I would breastfeed if I could but it was just a bit weird.

I am going to call to set up our first trimester NT screening. I was debating on getting this done but in the end an additional U/S won. The results won’t matter one way or another but I guess it would be nice to know if something was wrong to prepare. After our screening I think I will start telling people about this pregnancy. I am not sure how much longer I can hide it from work. I work with mostly guys…I don’t think they will notice the additional weight in my stomach but they will notice the growing boobs soon enough. Thanks for sticking with me though all this. I have really needed your comments and support! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Cheers!

  9. 12 weeks?!?! Amazing! So happy for you :D

    Woah, that had to be weird being asked that, I mean even outside the realm of IF and loss that seems really early on. But still, kind of amazing to be asked that at all, right?

  13. Congrats on making it to the big 1-2!!! I CANNOT WAIT to get to that milestone. The first trimester is absolutely scary. Even though you want to celebrate, there is still so much worry and anxiety. I'm so happy for you. The next trimester will be smooth sailing for you, and then the last one will kick your butt (in a good way, of course). :)
