If you have any specific Qs Id be happy to help.

I may very well take you up on the offer! I have been pretty anxious about everything but I tend to find one thing to obsess over and focus my anxiety on. This week its definitely breastfeeding!

Good luck and welcome!

AFM - I had a non-OB ultrasound today (for my oncologist) and it was uneventful. So I think I will not be hearing from her till April! My son (inside me) was dancing around a bit but that just was reassuring! DS (outside) was well behaved too. Next appointment is OB on Tuesday (a week from tomorrow).
Glad the US went well and that you got a peek at the baby, too!

I had pre-e with my first and preterm labor. My pre-e was pretty bad but nothing like my aunt, she went into cardiac arrest from hers and ended up in a coma for 3 months.
My second I had preterm labor starting at around 30 weeks, full blown at 34 although they stopped it. Both pregnancies I delivered at 37 weeks exactly.
This time I have a even more sensitive cervix than last time ( I was on bedrest with both girls for months, in the hospital with #2 from bleeding).
I am 10 weeks and I have been bleeding daily since 5 weeks. I am on modified bedrest for now, and pelvic rest since 5 weeks. I will be put on full on bedrest by about 20 weeks my doctor said if things do not change. I am mostly concerned because I am a photographer and I have a wedding this weekend. 6 hours of work I can't get out of it but I did get a second shooter thank goodness. I told my doctor and he okay'd it just said to sit as often as possible. Prayers that Saturday goes well please!
How did Saturday go for you?

Good luck on Thursday.

My DH just got back from a deployment (I am living with my mom until baby is born). He has to go back to our home station in two weeks but its been so nice to have him here all day! And i dont feel nearly as guilty asking him to do things for me as I do my mom.
