♥January 2011 DDC Roster ♥ Due Dates, Intros & BIRTHS! ♥ - Page 12

post #221 of 414
Thanks Painted for the warm welcome!
I am a night owl by heart/nature and apparently the 24hr sickness isnt getting in the way, at least not tonight/morning.
I do spend a lot less time online though lol.
Something about nausea doesnt seem to mix well w/the computer.

I told my fiance that I wasnt sure I could go through another round of this
sickness, ie another baby, I mean it's THAT bad, I guess Im just a wimp ugh.
Ive been sleeping pretty much all the time, Im very lucky I have my retired dad around to look after Caden while Im feeling so crappy.

I dont remember being THIS tired last time, I do remember the nausea though ugh.
Normally all I drink is water but since this crap Ive been drinking some soda, I guess just to keep that dried mouth taste out of my mouth. Once Im over the nausea it's back to straight water for me.

We've moved since I had Caden and my current nurse prac doesnt do the OB thing so I have to find special doctor.
Im almost 8 weeks and it's going by SOOOOOOOO slow!!
Im looking into trying some ginger capsules, as I cant stand the tea, anyone have any morning sickness suggestions? Beyond crackers and flat gingerale?
I can actually eat and if I make an effort I can keep it down but I still feel sick, it just sorta hovers all the time.

I did cloth diapers w/Caden and overall really liked it, my fiance being of the typical (not yet enlightened) school of thought thinks it's nuts and gross said we will have to get a 2nd washer lol.
Thats fine but Im insistant on it! The man has got a very sensitive gag reflex so, Ill be doing all the poop diapers. Seriously when the cat gacks and he has to pick it up he nearly loses his lunch. It's not just an excuse lol.
I think the diapers and the clothes shopping are what Im most excited about lol. Im looking forward to all the cute baby diapers (sigh). I am sure Caden will be eager to help me w/the baby he really is a sweetheart.

I havent told him yet but when weve talked about a future sibling he says he wants a baby sister, I think he likes the idea of being the only boy lol. He wants to be "special" but he IS special and I cherished every moment of his babyness (as well has his boyhood now of course) that it's hard to imagine having that w/another new baby. It's weird, maybe because Im an only child and I was a TOTALLY single mom (had nearly 24/7 help from my parents though), it was just a very unique time that only he and I shared.

Oh well Im babbling, I have a lot more to say but I think Ill go check out those US's.
Now Ive been thinking about how I need to get some folic acid tablets, Im usually the supplement queen but w/this MS that's gone down the toliet, ugh

thanks again!

I'm so happy that you decided to join us here. We're a pretty chatty group - apparently not always the norm - so jumping right in should be pretty easy. Everyone here is great and I'm not just saying that. Some people can be a bit grating, even through the internet, but all the ladies here are really great.

Wow that was really neat! Loved the video, thanks for sharing!
Caden was about 15 weeks by the time I "saw" him, they sure do grow fast!
Very sweet and exciting!!

amber87507-I've been taking Mommy's Bliss Morning Sickness Magic & they have totally helped. They are small easy to take capsules but they do smell like ginger, so I don't know if that will be a problem for you. It's the b6 in them that did the trick I think. DP found them at whole foods. Good luck!

My due date has been changed! I went to the hospital Tuesday b/c I was bleeding. They did an ultrasound and found out that I had twins(!) and one of them was miscarrying. The other one is fine (thank goodness), but I am on bedrest now for the next couple of days until everything is stable again. They dated me by ultrasound, and found out that I will actually be due January 1st now!!

I'm sad about the baby, but I'm so relieved that the other one is alright!!! Prayers work!

CMNEWBS, don't worry if you do end up nursing throughout your pregnancy and tandem nursing. I did it with all of my kids, and they ended up getting plenty of nutrition, being healthy babies, etc. It is hard, but you can get the hang of it fairly quickly if need be.

Coming out of lurkdom to post

EDD: January 5, 2011
Your Name: Kelly
Age : 35
State or Country: Ontario, Canada
How long it took to you to get your BFP: We were doing a "not trying, not preventing" approach.
What number child is this for you: This is my sixth pregnancy. My first ended in a m/c at 12 weeks, second ended in a full term stillbirth and then I had a DD and two DS.
Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): It's my husband and I, our three kids (8, 6 and 3), two birds and a bunch of fish
Baby's Gender (hopes or guesses): I'm thinking girl...but I thought girl with my last son too so not sure my predictions are all that accurate. I know when we tell our daughter she will *really* be hoping for a girl
Birth Plans/Preferences: midwife, probably hospital birth. We attempted a homebirth last time and we were an emergency last minute transfer/CS because he turned transverse during labour! I will be attempting a VBAC
Blog, website or the like: nope, have a hard enough time dealing with day to day stuff
Anything else you'd like to share: I'm so nervous this time around. Almost like I have three healthy kids and I'm tempting fate. Plus I'm not feeling much at all which makes me nervous. (with my others I had varying degrees of sickness). I sometimes wish I had a window into my uterus so that I could see what is going on in there

Hi!

Late joiner I was here for my last DDC but didn't know if this baby was a go so have waited a while.

I'm Christina, 35, with one daughter, Stella, 2.
Live in Victoria BC
Took us three months to conceive this child, following a m/c with hemorrhaging, emerg dnc, blood transfusions, and hospital stay. Needless to say, we've been nervous this time around.
DH is Mike, furkittens are Mason and Maria Borracha (drunken Mary)
I'm pretty sure we are having a girl but won't find out.
Birth plans: Basically, I'm hoping for the push-twice-and-she's-out at home but am much more flexible than I was in round one; going MD instead of MW this time and am willing to accept intervention if that's how it goes.
post #240 of 414
Please add me!
EDD: 1/1/11
Your Name: Theresa
Age: 29
State or Country: Georgia, USA
How long it took to you to get your BFP: Um, got my PPAF on 3/27 and got pregnant about 2 weeks later
What number child is this for you: We have had 3 miscarriages and have two fabulous little girls.
Family (partner, other children, and/or furbabies): DH = Matt, DD1 (3.5) = Hannah, DD2 (1.5) = Sofie
We have seen the baby twice now, at 8w3d and 11w2d. NT Scan went well, and everything is looking good. I'm able to find the heartbeat with my doppler whenever I try.
