post #21 of 88
I am corrupting the DDC. This is my most suggestable pregnancy EVER. I saw them making tamales on Food Network and now it's all I can think of. I sent DH last night and they were closed. But today shall be my tamale day!

Not a tamale fan... though a Jamaican beef or chicken patty with a side of plantains would be awesome.

Had a quickie check-up on Friday b/c my symptoms disappeared. I think my MW thinks I'm a hypochondriac. Oh well. But the baby's growing, and has a strong heartbeat. I got to hear it!

So how was everyone's weekend?

I was at a friend's bachelorette party on Saturday night. It was fun, but kind of strange. Probably the last time I'm going to be out with my friends in a dance club for a long time. It's ok though; I realized that I'm way past that point in my life. And NOT being hungover all day Sunday, like the rest of the girls at the party, was terrific.

hi everyone!
I haven't had a tomale in years, yumm

I too am eating like crazy, at first I said to myself, oh it's just because I need to eat every 2 hours to keep the morning sickness at bay. yeah right! I love foood and thats that

my house is still a mess, but I do get bouts of energy now and then and I try to clean as much as I can. I did the dishes on sat, that was quite a feat. it took an hour........

i think i feel the baby moving? I am 12 and a half weeks. so I am pretty sure thats what it is.

I went swiming with ds 6, on saturday, and boy was I in a rotton mood. I don't know if i was hungry or haveing an axiety attack?? but everything bugged me. everything. I had to TRY to smile. I wanted ds to have a good time.. I prayed alot in that pool. then it was time to go, and in the change room I had to ask ds to not talk, the noise hadme so wound up, I just wanted to scream, I was really losing it we ate and I felt better. we came home and had a nap.
I feel really bad about being so grumpy. it could be because I haven't seen dp for a couple days and I really wished he could have come swimmming with us. we used to swim all most everyday, maybe I was just missen him?


today I am going to go to the store and get some more food. i have been putting it off for days, and we really are out of everything.

the morning sickness is getting better, usally it hits hard at night, but I just go to bed and sleep and it gone in the am.


have a wonderful day!!!

yes mrsm, I too have had these feeling about not being hung over with the rest of them.

I went to a treatment center, and had to get help for my problem. so needless to say I don't drink anymore and its not just because I am pg. dp has stopped too we are both recovering. its been about 6 months for me and 5 for dp. we are so happy with our new life. and with the new life we planned and will bring up in a alcohol free home. life is a journey and I so glad to be on this one, with my dp he is the best

I don't have a risk assessment with my MW...if I risk out at a later date, we just deal with it then so I'm curious how the assessment works? It was so devastating to risk out (at around 19 weeks) and I'm really, really hoping it doesn't happen again.
The risk assessment is really no big deal. I had to have blood drawn, vagina swab for STDS, pap smear (which I did not get and will do so at 36 week risk assessment instead), pelvic exam, breast exam, weight and urine check and answering a ton of queations about previous pregnancies, health problems, etc.

Also, I really wanted tamales but the only Mexican place in town is closed. So now I have no tamales.
It hurts when I sneeze too. I thought I was the only one


Ok, so listen to my HORRIBLE day.....
DH and I did not get much sleep and were bickering all morning. I check my e-mails and I have been hacked and sending out penis enlargement ads to everyone in my address book. Then, I leave the house to drive to my risk assessment and I am like 3 minutes away when I have to stop in the road for a frontloader who is stopped. He looks right at me so I think he is going to let me pass.....but no, he starts to back up, fast. I throw the car in to reverse and honk but it is too late he smashes the front of my car and windshield! I was so happy that DD was not in the car with me and that there was really no impact6 and I am fine but what a mess . I will be without a car for a couple of weeks now and have to wait for all of the insurance crap to go through. I then had to go right to my appointment and get all of my risk assessment stuff done while I was shaking and crying. My nurse waited until the end of the appt to take my blood pressure

Oh, mama, that is horrible.

Wildecat ~ Glad you're OK! I wish people would pay more attention...

I got up at 7 to go have my TB test checked at work, got coffee and donuts and went back home. Everyone was still asleep, so I got back in bed...and slept until 1pm!! I NEEDED that, and I so thankful for my husband understanding that! Tomorrow is my appointment with the dermatologist. I shouldn't be worried, but I am. I'm sure I'll feel so much better afterward so I can stop worrying. The thing that I have isn't even a mole, but I'm scared to death that it's going to melanoma or something...just the hypochondriac nurse in me, I guess.

Oh Wildecat! How awful! I'm so glad you are okay.

So good to hear positive heartbeat updates from so many!
post #29 of 88
Megan- I'm so glad your appt went well and you are starting to connect with this pregnancy.

Starshine- weight and midwives are very individual things. I risked out of my first midwife because she didn't like how much weight I gained. It was not a good situation, she stressed me out so badly and made me feel so bad about gaining weight. It's all we *ever* talked about. She risked me at 35 weeks when I gained 40lbs. I started my second pregnancy 30 pounds heavier than my first (I was over 200 too) and it was never an issue with that MW. She just wanted me to eat healthy food and move my body and there was no stress or pressure. I lost 10lbs and then gained 30, for a total gain of 20lbs that pregnancy. This pregnancy I am using a different mw again and it is again not an issue and I am over 200lbs. She again said, eat healthy food and move your body and you'll be good. She's not even making my weigh in, I'll just keep an eye on it at home and check in with her, no pressure. So basically, if it's an issue, look for another provider. Good luck! And, awesome on the sleeping!! That would be so great!

Corysmilk- that sounds rough! i definitely feel my blood sugar do wacky things when I need to eat and I get very short tempered. Try keeping a little snack with you to give you a boost if it happens again. It's been happening to me a lot this time. Congrats on your sobriety!!!

Wildecat- how scary!! I'm glad you were okay and your dd wasn't with you!

I am feeling much, much better than I was a week ago, but I'm still having a rough time. At least the nausea is more hit and miss rather than all the time though. I am still really tired, no energy and no motivation. My husband did all the laundry and all the dishes yesterday. I was so thankful and felt so guilty! He works 70 hours a week right now and he is having to take care of everything else too. I can't wait to feel better! I have an appt in 2ish week, but I may pop in sooner to get to hear the heartbeat, I love that everyone is hearing it! I'm 10 weeks today so I'm hoping to feel like a new woman in the next week or 2!

Oh my gosh, that is really horrible! I'm glad you're all right.

AFM...I just got back from an OB appointment. They found the heartbeat with Doppler and it sounded great! I also had a Pap, which was lame, but I decided not to fight them on that one. I'm going to have to pick my battles with this office.
post #32 of 88
Wildecat, I am so, so glad you're OK! How scary that must have been.

I actually scored a doppled but am apparently the world's worst heartbeat finder. I have two in there and I can't find a heartbeat. And I'm fairly certain things are OK, because unless I completely delusional, I feel them squirming around.

My round ligaments are killing me but that's OK because my husband is out getting my TAMALES!!!!!

Glad you got a nice nap. I had a skin tag that freaked me out. Hopefully it is something like that.

Le sigh.

Annette ~ Were they as good coming back up as they were going down? :Puke

Sarah ~ Thanks for sharing your experiences! I don't THINK it will be an issue, and I'm eating healthy and I'm on my feet every day, so that bodes well for me. I'll let you guys know what I found out.

Cathy ~ I know what melanoma looks like and my thing looks nothing like it...it's more like an ingrown blackhead or something...I can't make it go away. *sigh* Well, hopefully she'll remove it tomorrow.

I found out two days ago that my grandpa on my mom's side had a heart attack. He wasn't in the best of health and is in his upper 80's, but it's still sad to know that he'll be gone soon. He's in Missouri, and I haven't seen him for years, only sent pictures and talked on the phone. I called my uncle and he held the phone up to Grandpa's ear a little bit ago so I could talk to him and tell him that we love him, etc. I see people at the end of life all the time, but I was still choking up while I was talking...it's so hard when that person in the hospital bed is your own family! He's unresponsive and the Docs say hours to a couple of days. I hope he goes quickly so he can be freed from the body that's been failing him for several long years.

No. Luckily it was just one little bit of reflux and now I am doing OK.
post #37 of 88
I'm so sorry Starshine.

My mom came over today and cleaned (and I helped a little). I love her!

She also took my oldest with her so now it's just ds and myself hanging out and relaxing. Waiting for dh to get home from school tonight because he's going to make us steaks, sweet potatoes and roasted corn on the cob.
post #38 of 88
It is amazing how energy inducing a good cup of chai can be!! I treated myself this afternoon and my day got WAY BETTER It consisted of drinking my chai, watched my oldest DD walk her lovely goat Sunny (well her goat walk her), then 4 year old Indigo learned to climb trees and is in awe of herself, 6 Year old DD and 3 year old DS are making compost together and I got a call that DH will be home tonight a day early! YAY! Could not be happier about that! ..And we have a helper here helping with our fabric form foundation for our cob home!
Ahh what an afternoon now for homemade pizzas.. caffeine isnt that bad is it ?? cause it sure helps me get off my butt!!
post #39 of 88
Off to the "meet the midwife" thingy! I just had my first bout of vomiting in the shower, real, true vomit, not just dry heaves. What a bummer. I nibbled on 1/4 of a grilled cheese that I just made for my sons and feel a little better.
post #40 of 88
How exciting that we're all in that timeframe where we are starting to hear our babies heartbeats!! It definitely makes things seem more real, you know, if the exhaustion, nausea, and vomiting werent enough. LOL

I hit the 10 week mark today, and Im getting so excited to be nearing the end of the first trimester! I will be happy to finally be able to say good riddance to the exhaustion! I feel so useless around the house these days. Today I worked from 730-430 (Im a receptionist in a medical office), went to buy some hanging plants for coworkers birthdays, and came home to make dinner. Now that my bottom is on the couch, I dont even want to get up! But I still have to make brownies for their birthday tomorrow.

Overall, a day like this wouldnt make me feel so dead to the world. I cant wait to get my energy back.
