Update on the Puking.... er, Pregnancy
As of today I am 15 weeks 1 day pregnant. The fetus is exactly three calendar months old, retrieval having been October 3rd.

The puking had gone away at about 12 and a half weeks, leaving me a little anxious even though I knew that 'morning' sickness often abates towards the end of the first trimester. When the early risk assessment scan showed that everything was still fine I was terribly relieved. I continued to not have nausea. Then I went for last week's OB appointment, and mentioned to the OB the fact that the puking had stopped... and then promptly threw up my entire dinner later that very evening. The puking, it seems is back, it's just less predictable now. I had a bad nausea moment the other day when trying to obtain lunch, and a rather impressive puking episode this morning. It would seem the fetus is still alive, let's hope it stays that way.

My pregnancy books tell me that I might begin to feel fetal movement this early, but I'm much more likely to begin to feel movement in a couple of weeks. True to my legendary ability to imagine symptoms, dating back to my early days of trying to conceive, I felt something today. It was rather sharp, though, and I suspect the culprit was actually my lunch taco getting into a fight with my intestines and not the fetus at all.

In other news.... brrrrrr.

Current Mood: cold cold

Congratulations on making it to the second trimester! The morning sickness should improve from here on out.

Were they able to tell you anything about the location of the placenta when you had the NT scan? I didn't feel movement until after 20 weeks last time, because my placenta was anterior and therefore positioned between the baby and any nerves that I might use to feel her with. I just don't want you to freak out if you don't start feeling movement in a couple of weeks - it could be for perfectly normal reasons.

Nothing definitive about the placenta. It was on the right side, but it was too early to tell if it was low or not. The doctor who did the ultrasound was good and understood exactly why I asked about it. (I asked right before he was about to check it.) The next ultrasound should tell us if I need to worry on that score, and hopefully whether I need to buy blue yarn or pink.
