12 weeks

We hit a big milestone last Thursday, the 12 week ultrasound.

Baby L is measuring right on track and things look good. Baby L is definitely an active one already. Seeing Baby L move truly made both my husband and I's heart beat a bit quicker for this little one.

sigh of relief 

I am feeling alright. Truly it depends on the day, but I definitely have more energy and less nausea. I have experienced more pregnancy symptoms this time around compared to my 1st and 2nd pregnancies.

My jeans still fit, and I have gained 3 lbs which is to be expected.  My OB stressed my uterus knows exactly what to do and it would be normal if I showed earlier than before. I had originally thought it was due to Progesterone bloating. Guess not.  This is definitely the case, but my jeans still fit. Odd.

We have encountered a minor blip in my sticky situation called thrombophilia. My APTT test came back with my blood clotting quicker than it should. It was within the margin of lab error at .2 percentage points, but my RE agreed to up my Lovenox dosage by 20 mg.  I am waiting for my follow-up test results. Hopefully it was a fluke and all is well.  Stay tuned.

Whats in store for the future?
  • 14 week OB appointment
  • Continued twice monthly thrombophilia labs up until 20 weeks 
  • 16 week cervical length ultrasound due to my second trimester D&E
  • 18 week OB appointment 
  • 20 week anatomy ultrasound 
Keep growing little one!
