I'm loving this thread.   I'm 28 and DH is 29. We'll have been married for two years this summer, and were a couple for seven before getting married. Hard to believe we're closing in on 10 years together -- it has seriously flown by.   So far, it's just the two us, our four year old dog, and our baby due in December. Baby was a surprise after we tried for a year and then were told I'd need surgery in order to get pregnant -- we got the positive test exactly one...
  Oh yea, I forgot about the fatigue! I feel like I could sleep for days and still not be well rested. It might be all the 'getting up to pee every two hours' that's keeping me from getting a good night's sleep...   I also feel like it's going by so fast. We'll be ten weeks along in two days, and I keep thinking that it was only yesterday that I was crying on DH's shoulder because I thought we might never have a baby. It's crazy to think that we found six weeks ago that...
  Looks like we have a lot of relationship similarities! DH and I have also been married about two years, but will have been together for 10 years by fall 2013. We've been looking forward to having children one day for what seems like the entire time we've been a couple, so we couldn't be more excited about this little one on the way.   I'm also dealing with worries about my career. DH and I move a lot because of his job, so that's already been a hurdle that I've had to...
This is baby number one for us, also!   I don't feel that too much has changed pregnancy-wise. I'm struggling with the combined feelings of being queasy and hungry, but that's only been happening a couple weeks, and I just keep telling myself that it should go away by second trimester (I'm 10 weeks this Wednesday).   There are a lot of other changes in our personal lives for DH and me and those are exciting. DH got a new job, so we're moving again, but this time...
    Okay, you've sold me on the original plan! That moment is something that I've been dreaming about. Plus, I imagine any disappointment DH or I might feel will be gone in a flash once we have the baby in our arms. I'm wondering if gender disappointment would seem like a bigger thing if all we end up with is an ultrasound photo and then have 20 more weeks to wonder about the what if's and if only's.   I should print this out so I can keep it in mind for about 12 weeks...
    I don't think that's anything to be embarrassed about! I think it's pretty normal to have a preference. You'll love your baby either way.   DH and I don't plan to find out. This is our first, and I think it will be fun to find out at the birth when we get to hear "It's a ___!" after all that hard work of bringing the baby out into the world. And in more practical terms, with this being our first baby, I would love to avoid the flood of pink or blue things from...
This is the first pregnancy for me, so I don't know if I have a working intuition about this yet. But in the first few weeks of knowing we were expecting, I was pretty sure we will be having a boy! I think it's because, even though we weren't trying that month, we did have sex the day before and the day that I'm assuming I ovulated. So I guess we'll see if that theory about boy-making sperm and girl-making sperm holds true for us!   We don't have a huge preference...
Mine started around 7 weeks, right around the time that the intense cramping I was having started to fade a bit. It's gotten just a little bit worse everyday since, but it's not unbearable or anything. Usually I feel okay unless I haven't eaten in 2 or 3 hours -- then I feel like I'm going to throw up until I do eat something. It's not the best feeling being hungry and queasy at the same time, but I'm trying to keep in mind that it means things are probably progressing...
    I think it's the B vitamins that make your pee turn neon yellow. Definitely startling if you're not expecting it, but it's normal! I remember discovering that a couple years back when I was experimenting with taking a vitamin B complex to lengthen my luteal phase.  Liquid highlighter is an apt description!   I'm also taking the Rainbow Lite prenatal, plus some Fish Oil with DHA and a Vitamin D supplement. I'll stick with that until I hear otherwise from a midwife or...
Back in the early days of waiting to try, and trying, DH and I had talked about waiting at least until 10 - 12 weeks before telling family. That was before it ended up taking us a year to conceive. I had been seeing a fertility specialist for about three months and had been diagnosed with with a handful of problems that he felt I needed surgery for. We'd scheduled the surgery for this past Wednesday, and then told everyone about the infertility and treatment plans. And...
