Oh Congratulations!!! That is so exciting. I love having my two girls, they are the best of friends (and the worst of enemies at times).

And thank you for finding this thread again.... I didn't bookmark it : and since I don't seem to spend as much time online anymore now that it is summer, I couldn't seem to find it in my half hearted attempt at finding it. So now it is bookmarked!! And now I better get busy and update everyone!

It's a pretty amazing feeling! And now for the most-loved TTC word I'm sure you had gotten used to - RELAX! As long as you're not bleeding/cramping, chances are everything is peachy keen! To pass time you could create a registry and start picking out maternity clothes (just don't buy anything yet)...that's what I did!

ooooh I could do that. My husband wants to go to the stores and register. I am thinking that is jumping the gun just a bit I have a good feeling about this pregnancy, it just seems surreal and I am getting impatient! hahaha I want to be out of the first trimester danger zone. I know noting is ever 100% safe of course, but I think I need to ignore those other what ifs for the time being you know?

Yay I'm glad to see this thread revived! I haven't posted much through the weeks of m/s but it is on it's way out. I am finally starting to feel normal again. I went shopping last week for some big clothes. I was stoked to get some great shorts and long shirts at the goodwill that should get me through the summer. I'm not getting any maternity until late summer. Last pg I couldn't wear maternity until 6 months, so I have not idea what this time will be like.
I received a TON of maternity clothes but unfortunately they were way to big for me. We also got a lot of baby boy clothes, which I sooo don't need but it will be nice to have a few new things. But the woman who gave them to us also has a bunch of girl stuff too which we will need IF it's a girl. DH and DS are still determined it is a girl. I really don't know, I thought DS was a girl .
Everything is feeling pretty good, but I'm just SUPER bloated. I'm hoping it will subside soon.

: Yay for old friends in new pregnancy forums!! So happy for you gals!

I'll be 20 weeks on Tuesday. Been battling some migraines this week, but that's about it. This baby is less active than DS, but I feel him every evening when I sit down and put my feet up. We have our big ultrasound on Wednesday. I had been pretty positive that it was another boy, but now that we are close to finding out, I'm waffling a bit. Still, excited to find out one way or another.

I am 5 weeks this week. So it is still early. I am getting pretty excited. The parents and in laws are horrible at keeping a secret so I guess if they tell people, . If, God forbid, something happens, I know it will not be my fault and it's nothing to feel shamed about, you know??? I have some dull twinges/pains in my uterus. I hope this is normal...

With my first, I felt cramping off and on every day for over a month. You've got lots of changes going on in there. All those twinges you're feeling are normal...you're growing a baby!!

It's nice to see everyone posting again. I'm 22 weeks (well, I will be tomorrow) and am feeling pretty good. I look VERY pregnant! Other than the Braxton Hicks ctx, everything is great, but to tell you the truth the ctx are driving me nuts. We had our u/s a little over a week ago, but didn't find out the gender. I still think it's another boy, which I'm really excited about. He's moving a lot these days, which is so much fun.

Glad to have you here Lauren!!! I had lots of cramping and a heavy feeling at the beginning too. Now I have tight stretching feelings and BH ctx. Still, everything is great and baby is healthy and so am I. Try not to worry...what you are experiencing is totally normal.

Ok I'm dragging this thread out of oblivion because I heard that RavenStar had her baby ::: congrats!!!! and because I'm worried about Octobermoon. I also want to know how the rest of you are doing, I know it's getting close for many of you! Thinking of you ladies! and :
post #256 of 273
Yay Ravenstar and Octobermoon!

I know there are many more Zen babies on the way soon...
post #257 of 273
I have been looking for a tribe for a while and think this one might be it for me if you will all have me. My road to pregnancy was stressful and the first 14 weeks have been equally stressful and I am so ready to just be myself and relax the rest of the time.

Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Thanks for resurrecting this thread Tear!! (I'm still following you on bitter sushi, and think of you lots!)
I've been thinking I need to do it just to get updates on everyone. I'll update the first page tomorrow.... but in the meantime welcome effervescentmind!!

I have been really good about not stressing much! I think last night my husband felt the baby move for the first time last night. I always think, hmmm was that gas? A fish? the baby!?!?! LOL he said he felt it! He sounded pretty excited about it. Right now I am keeping myself busy planning a thanksgiving weekend trip to Berlin. Also, I have to figure out whether I should Substitute teach on post or not. It seems like a good idea but maybe it will make me tired or God Forbid get the flu! I have not gotten a flu shot and am not sure whether I should or not. OK I guess I am stressing about that! lol.

I was so surprised to see this thread up again! It got started when I was first pregnant, and now I'm about ready to give birth. I'm 38 weeks and totally not stressed! I'd love to know when baby is coming (or at least when baby is not coming, so I can get some things finished in time). We are pretty much ready, so anytime is really OK with me. My last was almost 2 weeks early, but I'm trying not to get myself psyched out about that, in case this one is late or something.

Congrats to the moms who have had their babies!!!
