Despite the fact that I'm pretty adamantly against ultrasounds for me, I do get jealous of others experiences with them. I secretly consider going to a walk in clinic to get an Ultrasound ordered and not tell anyone.
I'm sick of feeling sick, already. And I'm only 7 weeks! As long as I'm distracted feel okay, but I'm generally too exhausted to get distracted, and just want to curl up in bed and sleep. Today I laid on a blow up mattress with my boys and let them watch movies for several hours while I dozed. Ugh.
I went to my bff's DH's birthday tonight. She is pregnant with her first, and I haven't told her yet. Her mom, however, came right up to me, completely sized me up, staring at my belly, and said, "Adrienne says that you are trying to get pregnant?" I guess I look pregnant, at least to a mother of three who is a little more intuitive than most. I just laughed and said, "Ya, we've been trying for a while..." I should have worn a bulkier sweater.
I will see the midwives on January 16, which puts me just under 12 weeks. I'd rather wait a few more weeks for my 1st, as they usually can't hear the heartbeat without the doppler until closer to 14, but oh well. There is a new midwife on my team that I haven't met yet, so hopefully I'll get her. The annoying thing is, after 3 births with this team, they send me a whole package to fill out, and I don't even want to look at it. Medical history. Diet journal. Birth plans....
Hi ladies, I'm up earlier than all of my kiddos, so I figure it's a good time to introduce myself. My name is Jenny. I'm 33 years old. We are pregnant for the 7th time, hoping to birth our 4th baby, which will be our 5th child. (We've had 3 miscarriages, and one of our children is adopted.) My 1st 3 are boys, and my oldest is a girl (adopted). I will be delivering this kiddo at home. I tried to do so with my 1st 2, but ended up in the hospital. #3 was born in the...
I've been on edge for the last few months, waiting for a court date to terminate post PGO parental access so that our adoption could proceed. This afternoon the hearing took place, and the parents actually consented! That means that in January we can take our little girl home!!! I can't share yet with many, but knew that a few of you would understand the unspeakable joy!
I have been extremely nauseous, and while it's a little bit comforting to know things are happening (I had zero symptoms with my recent mc and it worried me the whole time) I could kind of do without. I've had so much stress in my life elsewhere that I've not had much time to think about this pregnancy, so I don't know if that makes the symptoms better or worse.
I'm nursing my 20 month old. I nursed my 1st through my second's pregnancy, and until he was 4. My second self weaned while I was pregnant with #3. I'm open to tandem nursing again, but will be okay, too, if he weans while I'm pregnant.
