Congratulations Tresa!!

momma moo - Thanks for sharing your recipe!! I'm really craving some lentil soup but it's so hot out!!

I'm really anxious for morning sickness to start. I'm 4w5d now....I can't remember when it started with my 2 kids. My first pregnancy I didn't have it at all and that ended up as a missed miscarriage....so yep..pretty anxious for it!

Hi! I added an intro in roll call but I'll mention here that I'm due Feb 14! Valentine's Day! Baby #3.

Not feeling very pregnant. Not showing at all and am not feeling tired nor are my boobs sore. Just found out three days ago and was very shocked when I took my pee test. DH had had a dream about us fighting over an unplanned pregnancy and that prompted me to take a test the next day, even though I wasn't technically late. He took the news surprisingly well, lol! I am very excited even though we thought we were through after our two boys, who by the way both had their birthdays this past week.

Welcome andisunshine!

DH got a new job. Fingers crossed that this one sticks.

I am so so so tired tonight. And it's the last night of Sparks. And I have to do the dishes.

we are still trying to figure out what house we are going to move into in a few weeks... i cannot make up my mind for the life of me. im sure dh is going crazy that i cant decide... i'm 6ish weeks today, and our 1st appointment is on thursday...im anxious and scared...my symptoms are kind of all over the place...i didnt have much m/s with ds or dd...the m/c pg i just can't remember...i'm not currently have much m/s at all, but my hip/back hurts like the m/c pg, except its the opposite side this time. i keep picking every symptom apart...i've kept diaries about each pregnancy so i can compare but now i wish i had written more details back then!

Welcome Andisunshine

Congrats on the job twinkle!

Baby3 - my symtpoms are all over too. I'm waiting patiently for more severe nauseau to kick in. I know it didn't start before 6 weeks, with any of my 3 pregnancies. I only really puked with my 2nd one, and just once or twice. I was a little crampy, twingey last week but aside from bloated, crazy sore nipples and exhaustion, I feel ok!

Oh my friend who is due July 15th went to the hospital this morning.....she wasn't sure if she was in labor, but since I haven't heard from her since then I'm thinking she is having a baby right now!

Hey, how bout this Finn- Ill give you my morning sickness.. Then you can throw up all you want (totally joking by the way, I don't mind it since for me its a good sign).

DH just found out one of his Marines are pregnant due around the same time I am. Made me really grateful to be married to a wonderful guy, her baby's daddy is denying the baby could be his. Poor kid, I feel for her, shes only barely 19 and has no one over here. I had DH give her my e-mail address just in case she wants to talk to someone.

I'm not feeling any symptoms yet... except peeing all the dang time. Not my least favorite symptom though. So I'm ok with this. If only it'd stay that way... I am planning on calling my MW tomorrow. Since my babies were both so early, I like to get started on my care right away. They were making noises about a cerclage last time... Seems I have an incompetent cervix. I'm not looking forward for bed rest with a toddler AGAIN. So I may let them... This was a terrible month to get pregnant. Lol. I just had surgery. I have a kidney stone that I wont pass. I have a stent to get out. I just had an xray, have been drinking and was on vicodin (surgery related of course) for a couple weeks.... Horrible timing. And I couldn't be more excited.

finn...i didnt throw up (morning sickness related) with any of my other pregnancies...(knock on wood) but i did catch stomach bugs which made me soooo siiick...it was horrible...i have noticed that with my other pregnancies, even the m/c i had the tingly boobs (which made me test and it was always a bfp) and i didnt have that this time...
post #29 of 61
I also don't have sore breasts yet which is really odd. They hurt SOOO bad for the other two. Maybe this means this is a boy? or maybe that's just wishful thinking.

I just scheduled my first prenatal and I'm excited, it's not for an entire month but I'm fine with that. It's a LONG drive out to my midwife's office. I'll be eight weeks then.

That's how I feel only I have two other children to take care of! It's naptime soon, though, and I can't wait to snuggle into the couch.

In an hour or so we go for our final RE ultrasound. Nervous but confident. We are going to see a heartbeat that is at least 120bpm. I'm betting 132.

I'm sick. I had been, then it went away, then it came back Saturday with a vengence! From around 1pm-9pm I'm nauseaous and throw up anything I eat. Fantastic. I don't mind a bit!

I came down this morning to get something to eat for breakfast, opended the fridge, and dry heaved from the smell. So I've eaten 15 rice krispies. For some reason I'm still hungry...nothing sounds good (well, I'm desperately wanting a Hardee's biscuit with grape jelly but that is not an option due to the time) and I can't bear the thought of opening the fridge *ever* again. Gross.

Can I smother everything I eat in cheese or chocolate sauce?

Do I have to carry on conversations? Can everyone just read my mind and know what I mean when I say "that ...thing?" My brain isn't so great with words lately.

I feel like my body isn't my own. I feel invaded. I have been invaded. Someone else is running me from the inside...someone who wants to eat and sleep and not do a lot else. Ahem

I am not productive enough with my breaks from exhaustion, nor am I nice enough when I get a break from being grouchy to make up for how snarly I get.

Waaaaaaaaahhh!!!

Only add in raging, hormonal person everyone hates to be around...

Why did my DH do this to me???

I am the type to be embarrassed about an unorganized linen closet. There are worse vices than letting your type A personality out to play once in a while, right?
Absolutely!

I'm getting a jump on organizing DD's schoolwork for next year. I figure the more I have planned and in place ahead of time, the better chance we'll have of actually getting it done.

I am SO emotional this week! I am a preschool teacher and our big "faretheewell" ceremony is coming up on Monday and lots of kids having been having their "last day" throughout the week. I get sooooo close with all the cuties (many of them start when they are 2 and leave at 5 or 6...we are multiage). It's so hard to say goodbye!

Our Faretheewelll ceremony is BEAUTIFUL. The children will wear crowns made out of grapevines with ribbons and special beads/trinkets hot glued on. Then all the parents/teachers/family members make a big arch with our hands and the faretheewellers walk under.

Then they get to the picnic table that has a big bowl of water on a mirror with a floating candle and the look in and make a wish. The teachers share our favorite memories about the child and then we all send them each some "love and light" where we put our hands on our hearts and send them up into the sky.

Afterwards we have a giant potluck bbq and it is just the most beautiful event ever. *sniff

That sounds nice! I would be a blubbering idiot if I were you! But I am feeling very emotional lately. And crabby, and I am starting to feel m/s setting in, and finally my boobs are sore. ALL of which I am very happy about! It is much earlier than I have ever had m/s though. Which makes my dh smile his cheshire cat smile and say "I told you it's twins." Plus I swear I see belly growth from 4w to 5w. Hmmm. I vote girl before twins, but I did take soy isoflavones this cycle... Guess we'll know July 1 at my first u/s.

Holly - that ceremony sounds so sweet! I would cry too.

Amy - you are having twins, yay! I can't wait to find out.

Who got that thread locked down? LOL....I don't think I've ever seen a thread locked in a DDC.

I'm 6w3d today. I don't feel as nauseous as I did yesterday which of course makes me stressed. I'm still squeezing my nipples to make sure they hurt (they do) and i took my last HPT the other day so I'm done with that. 5 more days until my ultrasound. I'm already SO nervous about it..... oy.

I can't wait until you get the reassurance you need at that u/s! I took my last hpt yesterday and I am glad I have no more. Isn't it funny, when we have good days we can't even enjoy them!
