I'm off to my follow-up thryoid function appointment with my 'regular' doctor ... for some reason I'm feeling great anxiety about the appointment. Ugh. I just hope all is well or my levels are still borderline and haven't dropped too much due to pregnancy.

I'm 7 weeks 4 days today.... was feeling good but the closer I get to 8 weeks the more nauseous I get

We were out of town much of last week and over the weekend- we told our friends we met up with which was fun as we aren't telling people at home yet.

I have some house projects going on and I am just trying to stat focused on that and not the pukey feelings (although the need to clean the toilet just in case keeps crossing my mind).

Anyone else got the baby shopping bug?
post #23 of 75
I do! I want to buy maternity and baby clothes, but I'm kind of waiting until I get a heartbeat tomorrow at my appointment. Hopefully they will do an ultrasound and I'll get to see it.

I bought a few gender neutral items when I first found out I was pregnant but nothing since then. I really need to start looking for maternity clothes at goodwill but I just haven't had time to go over there yet.

We told the kids this evening. They really like to play games so we decided to tell them by playing a game of Hangman. They did a few rounds and then DH said it was his turn. He put the blanks up to spell out "We are having a baby!" and the kids started guessing letters. DSD 11 was the first one to figure it out but I don't think she knew that it was for real. They all seemed sort of shocked but DSS 9 was very excited. DSS 15 seems mad. Oh well. Hopefully he will come around. I showed the girls pics online tonight of how big the baby is and they were interested in that.

In other news I'm still needing to cram protein in my face as much as possible. It's getting pretty old. Hopefully it will let up soon.

Yeah, at 15 he's probably just disgusted to have confirmation that you and his dad are having S-E-X.

LOL!

I'm 9 weeks 4 days today. I was starting to feel like I was the slowest person establishing care with a midwife, but it seems like I'm not that far behind. I'm meeting with one in two weeks to see if we mesh. I should call another I want to interview and see if I can meet with her sometime before that.

I have not vomited and am still fighting what I call the war on vomit. All in all this pregnancy is so much easier than the one with my son was. I, too, have to cram protein in my face constantly, but it is making me feel good and seems to be keeping my milk plentiful.

I keep wondering if there are some special benefits to nursing while pregnant that might be part of what is making this pregnancy easier.

Hi Ladies!!!! I've been having a hard time keeping up on here so I wanted to stop in and say hi! I am 11w 1d today! I'm so happy to be getting closer to the second trimester.

I only skimmed the thread but I think someone was nervous about their symptoms. Anyway, I wanted to chime in that my symptoms are only hunger, exhaustion and metalic taste in my mouth. I have seen the heartbeat 2 times and rented a doppler and have heard the heartbeat recently . Anyway, just wanted to share that I am in a similar boat symptom wise and things seem to be going well.

Sticky vibes to us all!!!!

I had a great appointment! One healthy baby with a perfect little heartbeat. Measured 9w 3d ( due date March 13th) but they said by my LMP I am 9w 1d with a due date of March 16. So somewhere in that window.
post #31 of 75
Great to hear about all these heartbeats that people are seeing/hearing. I'm SO looking forward to my appointment on Friday. Today I got this bizarre paranoia (after watching a HPT commercial) that maybe I'm completely delusional and I'm not really pregnant. Of course, I've been tired, nauseous, sore breasts, metallic taste in my mouth and....oh yeah....no period for 2 months

I think I'm just going to have a bit of worry in the back of my mind until I see the HB. (and that's why I could never be a no U/S, no doppler expectant mama)

I'm 7 weeks, 2 days, and I'm trying really hard to convince myself that this is the worst I'm going to feel (in terms of nausea), but it was worse today at work than it has been any other day. Bleah.

I told my sister and my parents last night. They're all excited and supportive. My sister and I discussed my plans for a homebirth, but I didn't mention it to my parents (yet). One thing at a time, with them. I did talk to my dad about how much I like the midwife I met with.

I can currently eat the following things: peanut butter on (caramel corn) rice cakes, cheese and more cheese, peanut butter crackers (Late July brand), fruit (mostly peaches), cottage cheese, Greek yogurt with honey, Triscuits, Cheez-Its, pickles, chocolate, raw carrots, cucumbers with hummus, macaroni and cheese, Annie's frozen "Southwestern" burritos, 2 flavors of Clif Bars, McDonald's Fish Filet sandwich, and tater tots. I'm really trying to identify some more foods that don't turn my stomach. I miss vegetables and greens!!

I totally agree with you there. The past few days I have been worried almost to the point of paranoia. While I know I am pregnant and everything is fine, I am still worrying about MC or something, anything, else. This will all hopefully go away when I have my u/s in 7 days. After that, I probably won't have another u/s, but I'll do the doppler every chance I can until the fetoscope will work.

Hi gals...just got back from the OB 3 hours after my appt time. He had emergency surgery. But I met a very nice new mama in the waiting room, and saw dh's ex wife(who is due in Oct) so it was a nice wait.
Anyway, all that waiting time for them to say everything looks great, they said my weight gain was awesome but OB couldnt hear heartbeats.
I am 10w 6 days so early but I was hoping. He wasnt worried, and I am not either...I am still pregnant, I feel them in there moving around! I go next week for my Nt scan, so thats going to be fun.
I am feeling great. I cleaned my whole house this morning. Ive been on the go all day.
post #35 of 75
Wow, Strongmama, you give me hope! Oh to feel so good I'm on the go all day again!

Go, you!

I updated in my "worried" thread, but will here too - Midwife appointment today - didn't hear heartbeat, but my uterus feels bigger than it should at 10w4d, so I'm having an u/s tomorrow at 2pm - 2 hours after picking dh up from his vasectomy! I think we're going to do lunch and then go for a drive to get the 2 2-year-olds to sleep ... and then dh can chill in the van with the girls (and a movie on my computer) while I go in for my u/s. I'm just hoping to see a heartbeat and find out if I'm further along than I think and/or if there's more than one in there.

I'm actually feeling good ... I do have nausea, but I'm so used to it now and it's NOTHING compared to the horrible morning sickness I had with A... but I have more energy now and am getting so much accomplished (just wish it included some housecleaning! ). Today we went to my mw appointment (an hour away), then to the beach, then to the CSA, then I dropped of CSA veggies to a local family in need, then home to put my CSA stuff away, then brought my oldest 3 to soccer camp, ran some errands, picked up my 2 & year olds and my friend Renee (I'd dropped them at my house to chill while I ran around like a crazy person ) and we picked the kids up at soccer camp and met my father and my sister's family at the Chinese buffet for dinner. My dad took my oldest 4 home for a sleepover and I ran more errands with Renee and A and now am home catching up on computer stuff. I'll put A to bed, fold some laundry, clean up the living room a bit and then curl up with some Ben & Jerry's and call it a night.

Oh...and I weighed myself at my mw appointment and according to her scale I've lost 19lbs from my pre-preg weight. Crazy! I still look the same, though!

Hi all~

Just popping in. I'm 10w?d today. I've been on meds which have taken me from feeling like I was dying all of the day to feeling flu-ish some of the day. It's an improvement for sure, but I've been throwing up more the past few days than I had in a while. My first mw appt. is tomorrow. DH has been trying to get the house presentable for them. It helps some that I know them (socialize with one, friends with the other), but I still hate for them to see my house a disaster. Oh well.

Not expecting a hb tomorrow since it's still early and I'm a fluffy mama. We'll see how it goes!

Congrats to everyone who is having outstanding visits and hearing HBs! I can't wait until our appt. in a few weeks.

Also so proud of those of you who are getting stuff done! You guys give me hope!

Last night DH & I went out to dinner with two of my coworkers (and one of their kids). DH was AWESOME. He played with the baby, fed her, kept her occupied, and just generally was attentive and did what was needed. Both my girlfriends were like, "You're gonna be a great dad!". And then later when we were talking about homebirth HE was the one that spoke up in its defense. O-M-G who is this incredible man??!!!

I have still been feeling whiny lately with my mostly all-day nausea. I am getting some things done, but also spend a lot of time doing nothing-ish. But then I feel guilty and wonder if I took a walk or exercised if I would feel better.
I got some seabands, but so far they don't seem to be doing a lot other than making my wrists hurt!

I did discover that I can eat sugar snap peas! So I'm getting SOME kind of vegetable! I'm also enjoying chicken noodle soup. Basically anything too salty or too sweet to be good for you. DH made pasta with ground turkey and tomato sauce last night. I thought I would be able to eat it and it was so disgusting to me. The ground turkey was a big mistake.

Anywho, so I'm just trying to persevere and trying to have a thankful heart and enjoy the time with DS while he's still an only child (although I have popped a movie in a couple afternoons and tried not to feel too guilty about it!). DH is being really helpful, making me breakfast and on night duty with DS.

Meeee too. I've found that carbs are the only thing that will keep the nausea under control. So my diet has now gone from very little carbs (like maybe 1-2 servings per day), to 90% carbs. And I've got the extra pounds already to prove it. arg.
