***Weekly Chit-Chat, 1/24 - 1/30***

Thread Starter 
This is a place for October DDC peeps to post anything that doesn't seem to fit in an existing thread, and that we don't really want to make a new thread for. If you spent time in the TTC forum, this is very similar to The ONE thread.

Don't forget to add yourself to the October DDC Roster!

Holy boobs!!

Okay.... so I'm usually a 36B. I had to go out and buy two 38D bras yesterday.

This is insane. Anyone else having body changes so early??? I also am having an inability to suck in my gut and my pants are already uncomfortable. I think I am just bloated.

No boobie symptoms for me yet. Everything is normal there...but I'm craving food! I'm dying for chinese. I really want sweet and sour chicken with fried rice and egg drop soup...oh and what I wouldn't give for a good egg roll! Which is totally weird since we almost NEVER eat chinese. Dh makes these eggs that I normally HATE but that's all I've wanted to eat the last couple of days. Weird! I don't think I ususally get any symptoms this early. Oh...and the headache...it's already started.

My 4 yo dd woke up barfing this morning. I had to leave her in the bathroom til she was done. I couldn't handle the sound of it! Hopefully everyone else doesn't get it too! Anyway, the boys are all getting ready for church and dd and I are gonna stay home and cuddle in bed!
I have to run over and do my mom's chores really quick! She had pigmy goats and miniature burros. I totally forgot to take care of them yesterday! Poor things!

Anyway...I love this thread! Thanks Lindsay!

Amber, I hope your DD feels better! (And, I hope you don't have to listen to it again! Uggghhh!)

I definitely look pregnant already! Gonna be pulling out the maternity clothes soon I think.

Today I'm working on figuring out the balancing act between nausea and hunger. That's probably the worst part of morning sickness for me - if I don't eat I feel bad but if I eat the wrong thing, I'm miserable. It was never this bad the first time, and definitely not this soon.

I'm in love with the chicken and rice soup I got from our favorite Thia restaurant last night.

I'm really concerned that I'm going to have to let the cat out of the bag at work much sooner than I had planned if this keeps up.

Okay now I'm craving Chinese food and Thai food. I'm very suggestible.

Luckily DH is cooking today and making some of my favorite food and dessert so I think my tummy and baby bean will be happy.

I only have one bra that is still comfortable and I am bloated too! I have a meeting to go to on Thursday and Friday and my suit pants are too tight. I'm going to go look for one of those extender thingies.

I've been craving a veggie Subway sandwich with extra pickles and extra, extra vinegar! In fact, I had a 6 inch for lunch yesterday and a 12 inch for lunch today. Before I found out I was pregnant, I had 3 different people comment on how much I was eating. Normally, I eat like bird, but I've really been putting away the food these past couple of weeks. If I keep this up, I'm gonna gain 80 pounds!

Me too! I'm eating a ton and stuff I don't normaly want. I ate nasty bday cake at my bf twin boys bday party tonight and now I'm regretting it. I should have just went back to the veggie tray. Ugh.

Dh is yelling at me to come finish watching the game with him! Go Vikings!

I have a WWYD question for all of you. I play soccer once a week. With my DD I stopped playing when I was about 5 weeks pregnant. I really want to keep playing but also don't want to be foolish. I would probably only play for about another month.

Obviously I would play more cautiously, but wondering people's honest opinion on this.

Thanks (and congrats to all!!).

so funny.. this exactly is one of my major pregnancy cravings. weird, huh.
i live in a teeny tiny town but the "big city" nearest me has a subway and i walked past it on wednesday and totally wanted to eat there. which is crazy because normally i think its pretty blah, especially with all of the really good food in that town!
that said, im still a lurker and cannot base my pregnancy on my want for a veggie sub

suuuubbingg...


..but can I just kindly request that if anyone has anything remotely interesting to say or ask, that you start a new thread? These threads are so notoriously hard to keep up with, especially with pregnant brain, and we have this whole giant DDC to use for our chit-chatting pleasure...



I am so so so happy to be pregnant tonight

If you are already doing it, I would keep doing it. I ride horses and I don't stop when I'm first pregnant. I am however, a lot more cautious and careful and don't ride hard. Also, a lot of times it becomes uncompfortable, so it's not enjoyable anymore anyway. I think you should just do what you feel ok with. If you feel like it's too much or dangerous, stop playing. If you feel like it's ok, keep it up!

I'm a crazy hormonal freak! There I said it! What's wrong with me? This can't happen already! I just had a serious melt down this morning. My poor family. I really hope it isn't like this the whole time. I might end up family-less!
Ok...that's all!

Uggh - I'm right there with you. I don't think it was this bad last time, or else the excitement and DH's special attention got us through it better. Las night I had a melt down and accused DH of wanting me to be cold when he said I had the corner of his sheet and we should straighten out the bed. Oh well

I agree with AmBam, if you were already doing it you should be fine. My Dh and I ride 4-wheelers (not so much this time of year). We are more cautious when I am pregnant, but I still ride. With my dd1 we went when I was a almost a week late to try and start labor and Nothing! lol

What Lyndzies said.

And, on the subject of boobs, I don't know what I'm going to do if mine get too much bigger. I've already gone up about a cup in the past year and a half, and I don't have much experience with the size I've already got! They ache already, too. Even when I was still getting negatives on tests, I was suspicious because of just how achey they are.

desamom - Hmmmm.... I guess I'd probably keep playing, though I probably (knowing me) would be worried about falls/checks, etc.... but I think if it feels right to you, that's what's most important!

AMF - OMG, I am SOOOOO pissed at my OB practice right now. I wasn't happy to begin with after going there Friday and feeling like I was getting attitude from them because their crap-ass pee stick was negative (I've since gotten two FRERs w/ strong second lines and another +digi), but now... ugh! I was told to call around noon for my HCG and progesterone levels from Friday's draw... not only did they put me on hold for 30 MINUTES, they also did not have my test results. I've waited another 2 hours plus for them to call me back, finally got fed up and called again, and they STILL don't have the numbers on my chart yet.

Grrrrr.... I think I will be checking out some other practices very VERY soon.

Sorry to rant, girls! I'm still fantastically happy, even though you can't tell from my growling post. Lol!
