hi all. i've been MIA for a bit. just wanted to check in and let you know i've added everyone and updated everything up to here.

i'm nine weeks today. not feeling very pregnant at all (which, honestly, makes me a bit nervous). i had morning sickness all through the first trimester of my last pregnancy so i guess i think that you have to feel like crap to be pregnant. i know every pregnancy is different, but i still can't help thinking that i should be feeling worse. i am tired, but that's about it.

hope everyone's doing well.

CONGRATS! to ElliesMomma and

to hipumpkins, me&3 and zonapellucida!

just don't drink pineapple juice. I bought some pineapple and pineapple juice last week and the juice was disgusting!! After tasting it I wondered what the heck do people use PJ for...maybe mixing with other juices and drinks. ugh...the aftertaste was the worst.

LOL!! I LOVE pineapple juice! to each their own i guess... but it is super amazing if you mix it with orange juice if you are having a hard time with it.

Welcome back Samstress!

Congrats to Elliesmom! Welcome to all the new mamas.
Well I was having a completely uneventful pregnancy until Saturday night when we hit a deer with our van. Thankfully everyone was okay, but the van is undrivable and I was a little panicked, having taken the air bag blast right to the stomach/belly. I went to the hospital and had the fetal monitor for about an hour. Baby's heartrate was sky high, shooting up to 190 for the first while and then eventually it settled down to the 140's. The doc felt my belly for sore spots and asked if I had peed and noticed any blood, but all was good, so I went home. Hopefully the placenta is fine and baby is too. My older two (ds11 and dd8) were really worried about the baby after the accident. My youngest(dd5) was totally nonplussed and was more interested in showing her new witch hat to the police and ambulance workers.

Same here! That sounds like something that could happen in my neck of the woods! Ouchy... y'all rest up!

hi, everybody, sorry to be mia, but we were on a loooong trip for almost three weeks. had a great time, happy to be home!

welcome to the new ladies, and congrats elliesmomma!!

samstress, thanks for keeping - i completely understand wishing for nausea. after the bfp, the black hole of non-information sucks!

dmitrizmom, how are you doing??? i can't imagine going back to work that soon, especially at those hours! is it negotiable for you and your family? i really hope so for you! i really think if we're (preg women) able, we ought to have a few months to adjust to our new lives and be at home taking care of ourselves and our families, and being taken care of. it might sound idealistic, but unless my financial future will be truly jeopardized by it, that's my goal.

afm, yesterday (wed) we had our FIRST appt w/ our midwives, less than 12 hrs after arriving home from our trip. it was heavenly - they came to our house and we were sooo relaxed, despite wanting to hear the heartbeat very badly! both midwives were very good, saying at 11 weeks, we shouldn't worry if they couldn't find it.... but they did!!!

we are so relieved! i know you can all identify. it was actually really beautiful, hearing my heartbeat, and then the other one on top, so much faster. we cried

it feels good to have weathered the first 11 weeks together quietly, being calm and hoping for the best. and now we're telling

glad you had a good trip.

I'm still trucking along at 41+1. Been home since 9/14 - told my boss I just couldn't do it. Haven't told them at work yet, but I will not be going back at 2 weeks... maybe at 4 or 6. Too many risks associated for me with my job and early return. Honestly, part of me is hoping that they decide to fire me and I can be done with that position and move on.

Welcome back Peace+Hope! Been wondering how your trip went! Do tell!!

And dmitrizmom, my last ds was 12 days 'overdue' so I feel ya! Praying lo decides to come today!!

I am feeling REALLY pregnant now! At 15 weeks, I sure look much bigger! ha! Nothing else really to tell. It's hard for me to find things that sound good to eat and usually, I'm too lazy to make them. This morning, though, I made taquitos: flour tortilla with eggs, cheese, homemade salsa and sour cream with french fries and ketchup on the side. Mmmmmmmm...

Haven't needed my naps lately but ready for bed by about 10ish. Dh and I usually stay up until midnight or so visiting and/or watching a movie but it's getting harder for me to do so.

Have a great day everyone!!

Anyway... I just wish it would kill candida! I am fighting that, too! Really badly!! And I don't want to pass it on to the baby!!! What do you do for it?

Btw, I have heard that Colloidal Silver is a natural antibiotic. Have you tried that for anything? Anyone else?? I know of people who swear by it but I've never heard of anyone taking it for a UTI.
Abigail, candida is such a treat, isn't it? I try to focus on probiotics - my favorite one is Reuteri. It's expensive, but it's so very worth it to me. I get mine at www.iherb.com. They seem to have a better price than what I can find locally.

I don't really have a problem with colloidal silver in small amounts. I would first use the other immune system boosting herbs though ~ echinacea, propolis, etc. (plus dietary things like garlic & vitamin C) Anyway, as you know, I did all that faithfully & still needed the antibiotics.

gon2be ~ I hope you're still doing ok. That sounded SO scary. I'm glad your babe is alright!!!

you can take me off the list. I had an ultrasound today. I miscarried on monday.
post #75 of 103
hipumpkins, so sorry for your loss.

gon2be - I hope things are going well - sounds like a harrowing experience, to say the least.

Question for you mamas past first trimester - I'm still really really early - will be 5 weeks tomorrow. And I'm more than usually cranky and irritable. I haven't been pregnant for 9 years, and granted, my memory is really bad - - but I remember being on a high with my other pregnancies. Do you think this is a bad portent?

I was definitely a lot sicker with my first, but also much more on a high. I'm less sick now, but much less tolerant of not feeling 100%. I have a headache and I'm exhausted.

Wow, things have sure been eventful around here, I think I must have stopped receiving notifications.

Anyways, to address me&3's question:

I think the hormones in 1st trimester can make life a little crazy with all the changes and all, but once you're fully entered 2nd tri, you've adapted and forgotten anything that wasn't so great in the first.

I love pregnancy now, (almost into 3rd trimester...) It doesn't even feel like I'm pregnant, except for the big belly and the rhythmical kicking from the baby. So yeah, I think you'll get your pregnancy high back again!

Don't sweat it, girlie! I've started each of my pregnancies differently! I started this pregnancy very cranky and irritable... a very surprise bay, to say the least!! But he/she is doing wonderfully and mama is, too! Hang in there!!
post #79 of 103
hipumpkins-I'm so sorry this one didn't work out. Hope you're back on here in the near future.
Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts. I still have a really tender spot at the top of my uterus, hopefully just stretching or maybe bruising. I hope it is nothing more than that, but I don't see my regular doc until the 5th.
Beyond that I'm waiting on our insurance adjuster and have been since Monday. I'm paying for a rental van while my wrecked one sits in my driveway, not getting any closer to being fixed. And I have to replace three car seats because once they have been in an accident, they are considered unsafe. Insurance is supposed to pay for that too.
In other news, my boobs are officially enormous. I had to go buy another new bra today-a 34 F. I started this pregnancy a 34 B and grew to a 34 DD in the first trimester. The sales woman said "well you'll probably grow more before you give birth". I told her I was shooting myself if my boobs got any bigger.

glad to hear that being a super cranky early-preggo person is not out of the norm. kinda depressed today (my dh and eldest ds left early this morning for a trip until TUESDAY. UGH.) very bummed about that. but i'm compensating by being here and reading a trashy novel. maybe i'll add some chocolate later, too. (not working today, and have till the pm to be slothful before the other 2 kiddos get home. 'course i *could* clean and cook. laundry. nah.)

gon2be, sorry your boobs are ginormous :P Mine hurt, but since they weren't so big to begin with, we're not getting too big over here. biggER, of course, but not enough to warrant a new bra or anything.

am actually worried about the poor boobs with the pregnancy, though. with ds 1, had to be hospitalized to get intravenous antibiotics for abscess in one boob, for ds2, ditto, but the boob doctor actually cut me open in 2 places to drain the stupid thing (ugh, that was a misery). luckily with dd, ds2 was still nursing, so with the 2 of them working on them, i didn't have a problem. but with this one (ok, jumping the gun a bit, since it's pretty far away...)... still, they hurt now, and occasionally one feels lumpyish.
