Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

Getting Better...

Fewer sniffles and coughs today. I finally made it back into the office yesterday. Geez. How does my dear husband work from home ALL the time? 1 week and 2 days was way too long for me. Although I did get my fill of baby shows in - Baby Story, Birth Day, Baby Diaries, Special Delivery, and probably way, WAY too many that showed emergency births or what could go wrong. And can I just say that even though TLC/DHC blur out the hoo-hoo shots, what you see coming OUT of the hoo-hoo made me want to throw up on the spot. I know the placenta has to come out, but all that other crap and fluid too? G.R.O.S.S.

I am missing my weekly photo op with Peanut this week. Dr. H wanted to skip this week and come in at 11 weeks.

A few questions...

  1. For those of you have who already graduated to your OB, did you miss those weekly u/s pics from your RE?
  2. Did your OB understand and give you pics and u/s anyway at every appointment?
  3. Did you rent/buy/borrow a Doppler to get you through the "hard times?"
  4. If so on the Doppler, where did you get it from? I found some place called StorkRadio.com.

Thanks in advance for the info!

3 nice things to say...:

I never watch those baby shows. They always piss me off.

1. For those of you have who already graduated to your OB, did you miss those weekly u/s pics from your RE?
-- Of course. It's hard to just let nature take it's course and not monitor it, but my first 2 babies were only with an OB and I never saw them before 20 weeks, so I just loved the RE, but the OB experience was also normal for me.

Did your OB understand and give you pics and u/s anyway at every appointment?
-- heh. No. My OB hasn't done any u/s except the NT test and big u/s.

Did you rent/buy/borrow a Doppler to get you through the "hard times?"
-- oh yes. I use it up through delivery because when the baby doesn't move at 39 weeks, it's scary.

If so on the Doppler, where did you get it from? I found some place called StorkRadio.com.
-- I don't like storkRadio, as their dopplers aren't that strong, so makes it harder to hear at first. I get mine from babyFM.com

No, sadly the OB only does 2 ultra sounds and you will most likely only get one because the first one is done around 7/8 weeks. Sorry! My big one is in 4 weeks. I can't wait.

So glad you are feeling better. Everytime I watch the baby shows I feel like I should be clocked in and working. It's funny, for the most part,as a clinician, you do get used to the blood and fluid "gush" with delivery. That's why we wear tall booties. OB probably won't U/S you unless clinically indicated which means likely no more weekly peeks, but that's a good thing ala normal pregnancy. Re.dopplers were unheard of when I had the boys, but if it will give you some reassurance, go for it. Thanks for the update, ((Hugs))
