LOL...I went to a meeting yesterday and when I walked into the room, a friend (who just saw me less than 4 weeks ago!) gaped at me and exclaimed my name :P  (she already knew that I'm pregnant, but I guess I have really developed in the last few weeks!) Yup, it is definitely about that time that things start getting hard to hide!!

I have to say that this pregnancy is going by at a snails pace for me. I think it's because I seem so much more anxious this time that it seemed to take FOREVER to get to twelve weeks!  I'm sure it will speed up when/if I feel the baby move.  This pregnancy is going a lot like my first one in a lot of ways and I'm kind of hoping for a baby like my first.  Not that I don't love my second one but my first one was just a laid back baby that rarely cried.  My second cried everytime I put her down, including at night for the first 5 weeks or so.

Now, I'm off to the maternity store to expand my wardrobe a little.  Wish me luck.  All we have around here is a Destination Maternity store.  Otherwise I have to order online and that doesn't usually go too well for me.

So glad I'm not the only one whose pregnancy is just crawling by...man I wish it would speed up...at least a little.  Though I don't mind things being slow now...I'd rather it all speed up after New Years since that's the slow time of year. 

 

I'm 13 weeks todayjoy.gif  I'm so excited to be entering the second trimester and am hoping that the end of afternoon/evening sickness is near.  I've definitely been feeling better...at least for the first half of the day...around 3ish is when I typically start feeling horrible.  But hoping for an end this week.

 

I think I may call my MW and get in for a HB check...my ANP(not at the same place as my MW) kind of had me nervous over my progesterone levels(checked at 11w 6d so close to when the placenta takes over so progesterone supplementation does nothing) and now I've been over analyzing every symptom(even though the only ones I have signal being pregnant...like round ligament pain).  I HATE being fearful as it's not me at all...so I'm thinking a HB check may help.

It is dragging for me also but then sometimes I think, "Aughhh! Only 6 mos to go." and I sort of panic. LOL.

 

Maybe it would go faster if I started feeling better.

 

I was supposed to see my NP tomorrow but the appointment got moved to Friday.

Hi all! Never tried this chat thread before. I`m now 12 weeks. The last week has been a little difficult. I`ve had some small bleedings, wich freaked me out. Never ever bled a drop during my other 3 pregnancies. I had an US, but there was nothing to be worried about, baby kickin` and spinning around happily! Wery cute!  Still hard to not get a little stressed out if i see any blood though.

 

My husband left this morning to work for about 2-3 weeks far away from home. He works like 2-3 weeks on, and one week off. Not easy this time. One of my four boys was recently diagnosed with mycoplasma pneumonia. Last week one of his brothers had the exactly same symptoms, and was put on antibiotics. And off course, now it`s my turn. Been sick since Wednesday, and the caughing keep me up half the night.

And I just feel sooo exhausted! Some headache also bothers me, and my lungs feels a bit strange. Don`t like the idea of taking antibiotics when I`m pregnant, but as far as I can read I might be stuck with this pneumonia for weeks if not.

 

At least, I`m not nauseated anymore. Only when I`m very hungry and starts eating a meal a bit to fast I can feel a little sick just for a while.

post #109 of 166

I am finally coming out of being sick (cold sick).  I got sleep for the first time in 9 days last night.  I am dreading newborn sleep deprivation :)

 

It's flying by sort of for me... we have lots of things we're waiting to start till 20 weeks.  That's five weeks away!  Come on baby bump now... let's go so I have something to show off for thanksgiving.

I am starting to get some judgment for not wanting to give birth at home this time.  The problem is I also don't want to give birth in the hospital. So, I do have 6 mos to figure it out but I guess Ava's birth must have traumatized me more than I had thought.

Hugs to you mama. You have to do what is right for you.

omg you guys... I just put it up on facebook - I made it "official" - 15 weeks today... 

post #113 of 166

oh man...that's crazy! lol. 

i don't know when i'll put it up. :/

i have an ultrasound this afternoon for dating...and i'm having a hard time keeping it hidden because of my size so maybe today? i dunno. the closer i get to the date i said i'd tell (er...i'm past it now :P) the less i want to tell! i figure most people i care about already know.

post #114 of 166

Squueee! Annaconda!! I am waiting for the little heartbeat on Wed to make it official on facebook. I have been restraining myself, but it's been difficult. 

post #115 of 166

Welcome AuroraPolaris!  Boy, pnuemonia and 3 kids with a hubby away for a few weeks does not sound fun at all!  I hope you have  a support system that can help you if you need it!

 

annaconda,  Glad you are feeling better!  I am also dreading newborn sleep deprivation.  I am not a pleasant person when I dont get sleep.  With your first though, you can nap with the baby.  DO IT!  Screw the cleaning.. just take a nap, or a shower.  :)  Or feed yourself.  I really wish I would have laid down more in those early weeks because I hit 4 months like a brick wall and it will show you just how much of a superwoman you are not. 

 

Evergreen,  So sorry you are getting such bad support!  Birth happens best where the Mom feels most comfortable.  I hope all your armchair quarterbacks can learn to contain themselves and be the support you need.

 

 

 

Things have been busy here.  Hubby was away for a booze cruise from LA to Mexico in honor of one of his oldest friend's 30th bday.  The boat that left a day after theirs was stranded for a few days.  Im soooo thankful he wasnt on that one!  4 days was enough to be away.  Im so glad to have him back.  But then another friend since Elementary came to visit us 2 days after he got back and stayed for 5.. so Im tired and just glad to have my family and my house back.  I cant wait for our datenight this week!  Ive put the kibbosh on anyone else coming to visit until a month after the baby comes.  Keeping up with the holiday season is enough for awhile, and then in Jan we leave for a couple weeks in Hawaii for a babymoon and DDs birthday celebration.  I cant wait for that trip!  Ill get to rock my cute sized baby bump and beach myself in the warm water :)  Ive also been craving a Puka dog.

 

 

15 weeks this week if you go by my non-adjusted due date and this pregnancy is finally starting to feel "real".  I have been really tired lately but am so thankful the nausea is gone.  Ive been able to do 1.5 miles at 3mph with a 10% incline on the treadmill every day for the last 5, so that is awesome.  I really want to keep this up 6 days a week until the end.  I did my weight training two of the days and think Ill shoot for 3 days a week weights.  Im also going to add a really helpful yoga dvd for hips and lower back in 2 days a week.  It feels good to use my body again instead of trying to distance myself from the nausea.  I view my VBAC as preparing for a marathon so I was getting a bit discouraged when I couldnt excercise for so long without throwing up or wanting to throw up!

 

Dh felt the baby move for the first time this last weekend.. that's always exciting for me, when he gets to be part of the mystery.

 

Now that the nausea isnt an issue, I need to get back into my meal planning.  Our fridge went out a couple weeks ago and the last couple trips to the store Ive gotten home and realized that we didnt have something I needed for a meal.  Ill be glad when everything is restocked.

 

So yay!  For life getting back to some semblance of normal!

 

 

 

 

post #116 of 166

we had visitors last weekend and I too have put the kibosh on anymore visits (except our siblings - they're easy) until after the baby is born.

 

Guests are great but a real pain and energy drain.

post #117 of 166

Glad we are all seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!

 

I am 13 weeks today and doing well...although I am having a lot of round ligament pain...it started with my last one at 16-18 weeks, but this is starting earlier....it is painful on either side of my uterus when I walk or move a lot, or if I bend over. 

 

Other than that, feeling good. Oh, I am also in my maternity clothes, they are comfy and my others just don't fit at all...

 

Hope everyone continues to do well!

 

Ceris

post #118 of 166

oh man the round ligament pain is soooooo painful this time around. it hasn't been too bad for me this week actually...but the last few weeks have been horrible! i was waking up a lot with it in the night.

post #119 of 166

I've been getting the round ligament pain for at least a month now and I'm only 14 weeks. But I have PCOS and IC, so maybe I'm just more prone to pains from the growth in the bits. My husband asked me yesterday, are you getting bigger? To which I replied, yes, daily. Still not feeling any movement to my knowledge, but this is my first so I'm not too sure what I'm looking to feel. :)

post #120 of 166

So far I am only getting round ligament pain when I stand up too fast fingersx.gif It is however sharp enough that I generally make a noise and have to stand there for a minute or two breathing it out.
