Hi Karen,

Congrats on the good u/s result!! You must be so happy!! I had the triple screen (just a blood test) and decided if it was ok I wouldn't bother with an amnio. If it was positive for possible problems I would then have an amnio. Didn't want a needle in there if I didn't need to. Luckily my triple screen came back fine and our baby is healthy. The nt maybe a good idea b/c you can have it earlier than the triple screen and it may ease your mind.

Keep in touch hope you have a breezy pregnancy.

Thanks Karen!
I love my boys and it has been a really wonderful 7 months. Beginning was incredibly hard but I found that 3 1/2 months was a big turning point for us. Our colicky baby turned into a calm, smiley, happy baby and things got a lot easier. Now they are ready to crawl and are babbling and even playing with each other, they make me laugh all the time with all the funny stuff they do.
Some days I still can't believe that I am a mommy and Dh and I often look at them in wonder.

OMG, they are adorable - they look identical, but I'm thinking they're fraternal???

Karen,

Just wanted to pop in and see how you are doing with your pgcy. Hope all is well and you are feeling OK and have no complications or anything. How far along are you now? Are you going to find out the gender? I did and am so glad I did, it was fun planning. Anyways, take care!

Kiisu- Your boys are adorable!!

Not much new here, just still getting used to motherhood. I am already starting to think about cycling again next summer!! Crazy, I know!! I already want another one. I guess when you are in your mid 30's you think tic toc...

Hi Andia,

I'm doing well - it's so sweet of you to ask! I was 17 weeks on Friday and will be having my big u/s soon (in about 3 weeks I guess - I go to the dr. tomorrow and will then be able to book the appointment).

Yes, I want to find out the gender as well - I'm a big planner and that will help out a lot - DH and I are having real problems with names so we need to be able to narrow it down LOL.

Glad you're doing well - wow, good for you being ready to cycle again. I have a feeling one will be it for us...I'm happy to just have that!

Take care,

Karen
