Regarding swimsuits -- first pregnancy I had the worst time finding a swimsuit. I finally brought a non-maternity sport two-piece swimsuit -- the top looked like a jogging bra and the bottom was just bigger than my normal underwear size. That worked really well. This time I have a tankini ready, I hope it will fit right! I normally wear a size small top so I brought a large, anticipating the boob growth. The belly growth won't matter since the tankini will just allow for the expansion.

Hope that helps!

The problem I have with swimsuits is that I just can't imagine what a 2 piece tankini is going to look like/do around my big ol' belly! I imagine my belly peeking through, which is the last thing I want (not the most attractive preggo belly, here). I am trying to remember where I bought a 1-piece last time. Simple, black, one piece - it looks ginormous when I look at it un-pregnant, but it was quite comfortable when I was. I think I found it online. If I find any identifiying information, I'll post it. Sorry I'm not more help.

I think our bellies will be just cute and round during the summer. I didn't really "pop" (as in the full-on preggo belly) until 7-8 months w/ DD. That will be towards the end of the summer for most of us.

Anyone else excited that the December DDC is up?? We're moving right along, even if it feels like a snail's pace right now!

That's true. Maybe I won't be as HUGE this time. Last time, I was 7 months and the sub at our birthing class thought I was due any day. I'm a little self-conscious because we're going to visit dh's family who live in the south of France...where all the women are teeny-tiny, even pregnant. Oh well, I'll just enjoy the sun.

Regarding dreams - I never remember dreams, but I had a really freaky one the other night that actually woke me up and I couldn't go back to sleep. Fortunately, it wasn't pregnancy/baby related, but it involved terrorists and farm animals. Too weird.

Crazy that December is already up. Have we filled up the end of our month yet with new mamas! I know the beginning and middle got pretty full!

The maternity tankini I had covered my belly until about the last month. Although I usually wore the tankini and bottom I had up until about 7 months. But then I wasn't wearing hardly any maternity clothes until 6.5 or 7 monts.

I just got my bella bands yesterday! Although now I don't feel so bloated and may not need them for a couple more weeks. I tried one on and it felt nice down around my achey hips. I realized I think the ache is sciatica because it extends down my legs. I did go to yoga the other day, which is the first class in a week and half. But then I do yoga every morning on my own and so maybe it is just a coincidence. Plus I know that yoga will help the sciatica this time. I just may have to tell my teacher about the pg sooner than later, so I don't extend myself. My hips were really hurting last night in bed again. Geeze I feel like I'm five months not five weeks! They feel better now that I'm up. But my headache is back with a vengence, okay so never really went away. I thought maybe it was caffeine withdrawals, but I'm still drinking one cup half regular half decaf. Dh said he's fine, because I've been sneaking it in on him too. Can you take tylenol? I think I did with ds1, but can't quite remember. I don't think I can handle it if I have it tomorrow too.
The NAUSEA started yesterday, but only when I eat. I know that is just the start though.....ugh.

I wore my normal bathing suit to go to the pool to try to get dd to go headfirst the week before she was born.

My mom can't use our bathroom because it isn't handicapped accessible, so she cleans herself with wipes intended for bedridden people. The perfume in the wipes is making me want to die! But I can't say anything because I'm afraid she'll either feel hurt, or do something crazy like try to take a shower in a truck stop. :

I've been feeling pretty good this week, other than a nagging knee pain (but I think that's activity indiuced rather than pg induced!) We had our 8 week U/S yesterday and that was awesome! Hearing that little heartbeat was just the best thing to date!
And today, with picture, in hand I told my boss and coworkers about my pregnancy! Everyone was so happy and excited for us, even my boss who I was sure was going to be upset (maybe she still will be once she realizes that I'll be on maternity leave during the holiday season!)
Cravings: Orange Juice and lots of it! Very thirsty in general but particularly for OJ or Juicy Juice Fruit Punch
Aversions: Nothing Really, though the smell from the onions on the Coney Dogs they ordered in at work last week about did me in! :-)
Dreams: I am so glad some of you are in the same dream boat as me. I have been having very vivid often odd/strange dreams for the past couple of weeks. Most of my life I've had dreams that I could remember at least once or twice a week, but it's been most nights lately and like I said just odd things that make you go "huh?!" when you wake up. Interesting!

I'm getting nervous with all the ms talk I was horribly sick with dd and I can't imagine letting myself get that sick again. I feel like I can stay on top of it this time though, I hope so anyway. I am working and I really don't want to take any days off of work. bleh. I was thinking of trying accupuncture and sea bands and if I have to I will go to Unisom as that help me big time before.

So far I feel good..my boobs are sore. My dd tried to nurse (she hasn't asked for it in like 2weeks) and that was painful. I want to feel more strong symptoms before my worries fade. Nervous of another miscarriage.

Hi all. I didn't want to make a big kerfuffle and start a whole new thread about it, but did want to let you all know...I've lost my pregnancy. Went in for an ultrasound yesterday. No heartbeat. The bean stopped growing a week ago.

It's been wonderful getting to know you. Goodbye, and I wish you all : and a wonderful eight more months!
