I'm almost certain I felt movement during my 10th week (this is my 4th baby). Then I was totally certain at 12 weeks that I did! I feel movement now, but am often too busy with the other children to realize it, aside from at night right before bedtime (where I'm resting in a chair).:yawning:
Just started 2nd trimester today! My nausea goes off and one these last two weeks. I'm hoping I don't have to deal with it for the remainder of the pregnancy, like I had to do with my last. Though, if that is what it takes to get a healthy baby here, I'll do it!:
7 pounds at 14 weeks (I am at 147#.) Pre-pregnancy...average size woman 5'5", 140#. I have been weighing myself on a weekly basis. I gained five pounds during my 6th week. Stayed at 145 for 7 weeks, and gained 2 pounds this last week. I seem to be following my weight gain pattern that I had with my last two babies, where I gained 40 pounds with each. (They were both boys....and I have a feeling this one will be, as well.) ???:???

One of my doula friends is an acupuncturist. I had acupuncture with her to induce labor. The points sound right. Yes, electric stimulation is an option. I did it once...you don't feel a difference. Generally, it takes three visits for it to work. I had success with it...as have some of my doula clients. It is clinically proven to work!
I'm not in your DDC, but I thought I would give you a link to a birth plan tool online...it is what I refer my clients to after I play a birth plan game with them. http://www.childbirth.org/interactive/ibirthplan.html There are others online, but I find the one above to be the most detailed and easy to use! Another good birth plan tool online is from Earth Mama Angel: http://www.earthmamaangelbaby.com/birth_plan.html I had one client use this and handed...

Okay, here is mine at 7 weeks 0 days: http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/d...jcmehl/7wk.jpg I have been weighing myself on a weekly basis since I got my BFP. Anyway, I have gained 6.5 pounds this last week. Anyone else experiencing this yet?
