Thank you Rachel... I have been doing some irrigation.  Thankfully the worst seems to have passed now.  I did use a little bit of nasal spray with decongestant in it.  The doctor that confirmed the pregnancy said it was safe but I hated to take it.  I'm feeling terrible that I took that and Tylenol during such a fragile stage of development.  greensad.gif  I meet with the midwife I hope to use for the birth soon... hopefully she will confirm that I haven't done anything terrible.  I feel such sympathy and awe of the people that suffer from sinus headaches regularly.

Now I have a work question for everyone. I run a program at my office and right now, I take care of all the progamatic management and I am also the project manager for most of the individual projects. Some of the porjects I assign to 2 other people in my office and they are the project managers for those ones. My plan for materinty leave was to just hand over all my projects to these 2 other poeple and then do the programatic management from home. Now all of the sudden, they are talking about majorly expanding my program and the big launch would be in (you guessed it) November. Should I tell my boss now about my pregnancy? I feel bad about them making all these plans that are laregely dependant on my work when I know I won't be here to do very much of it.

 

Assuming your boss is a nice and reasonable person, I would definitely tell if they are making plans that you know will be affected.  I'm planning to tell the chair of my board earlier than 12 weeks (just not yet orngtongue.gif).  It is going to come out so soon anyway, I think that most bosses would appreciate your efforts to keep them in the loop.  I plan to just say something along the lines of "It's really too early for me to be telling you, but I wanted to give you as much notice as possible" and then let him know how excited I am about the baby, and my work, and tell him my thoughts on how things are going to work.

 

I'm really stressing about this.  I go back and forth between thinking they are totally kind people who all have families themselves and are probably not surprised that the young mother they hired is having another child and good for her because life is so much more than your job!  And thinking that they are going to think "AARGGH!!"

 

Probably the former huh?

 

TalktoMeNow - so sorry you're not feeling well.  Nausea stinks!

Thanks for the advice guys. I think I am just worried about it because I told them early last time and then lost the baby but I know that is unlikely to happen again. My boss is out with his own kids this week for spring break. he is a really great and supportive family guy. He was so helpful after my loss and let me take as much time as I wanted. I think I will teel just him (not my co-workers) next week when he gets back. He can tell me what to do about all this. He is the boss afterall winky.gif

Hi everyone!  I'm Amy.  Just got a BFP yesterday, at 11 DPO, which means my EDD is December 2nd.  But my last 2 (DS and a Surrobabe) have come 10 days and 3 weeks early, so I'm betting this will be a late November baby.  Got pregnant on the first try after waiting years for DH to be ready for a 2nd.

 

I'm not having any symptoms yet (except that I had to pee a million times yesterday, but that could be because I was eating tons of oranges and drinking smoothies).  It feels weird to be pregnant but not feel pregnant.  With DS and Surrobabe I was extremely tired my whole first trimester (like, didn't even want to move tired).  The second time I know this was compounded by injectable hormones.  I hope it's not so bad this time.  I'm going to force myself to stay active and keep my intake of greens up, even if I have food aversions.  I think this will help.

That's why we told everyone. My brother is shipped off (Marine Corps.) and he kept putting stuff on my wall that I had to delete. It made me feel bad, so we just told.

 

And I'm already tired of everyone's "advice" and horror stories.

Ok, anyone else tired and not sleeping? Up since five thirty am over here... Boo!

My morning sickness if feeling so much better yesterday and today. I'm not feeling 100% yet, but I can eat almost anything as long as I don't try to eat too much at once. I still have to eat every couple of hours, I feel kind of queasy if I let myself get hungry. But I'm feeling pretty great in between. Still tired as can be, but I'm not heading for the bathroom anymore. I do remember my morning sickness didn't last too long with my first pregnancy, so I'm hoping it's really going away for good. I thought it lasted more than a week, but it was 3 years ago so I could be wrong. 

 

I go in for an ultrasound tomorrow. The heartbeat was so brand new the first time, so it was a little slow. They're checking to make sure it is getting faster. I'm excited to see how much this bean has changed in just a little over a week. This will be my last ultrasound until the 20 week anatomy check, so I plan to soak it in as much as possible. With my first pregnancy, I had ultrasounds every two weeks to keep an eye on my cervix, but I don't need that this time. It'll be hard not being able to check on the babe as often, I was spoiled the first time around!

Ouch, I am so sorry  you are dealing with this.  That adds such a bummer to the whole preggers deal.  Hopefully it gets better for you. (and your partner;)

Hi!  Can I join?  I'm Summersquash, age 32, pregnant with #2 and due 11/5/11.  smile.gif

 

Mal85 - that is great that your m/s is starting to go away.  I really, really hope that mine decides to go away soon.  I feel like it is so much worse this time around!  I ate some tunafish at my ILs last weekend and embarrassingly had to run out of the room into the bathroom to retch.  blush.gif

post #90 of 201

Welcome! Amy and Summersquash!

 

TTCOC - There is a big part of me that wants to tell EVERYONE and the advice/horror stories is one of the big reasons we are keeping it to family and friends right now so I totally feel you on that one. It is so much fun to be able to talk about it though. Sigh. Pros and cons both ways.

 

Mal85 - yay for MS letting up!

post #91 of 201

The good news is that my mornig sickness has led up.  The bad news is that I am sick (sore throat) and I can't eat much.  This sucks.  I have to take at least tylenol or I can't talk or swollow.  I hate having to take something even if it is reasonablly safe during pregnancy.  I am stumpped about what this is though since my throat isn't even red but it hurts worse than I can ever remember it hurting if I don't take anything.  My coworkers keep trying to offer me things I can't take because I am pregnant.  It is getting harder and harder to hide from them.  One of them actually suggested I take a pregnancy test because she noticed I have been so tired lately.  I can't tell them yet though.

Morning everyone. I'm going to start zofram today. greensad.gif I don't like it, but I need to be able to get out of bed and eat. Right now I mostly lie in bed all day feeling sick and weak. But I still feel guilty that I have to take meds.

Hope everyone else is doing well.

Hey! Just wanted to throw in that I was really sick and throwing up my whole pregnancy (before my bfps) with all three of my older kids but I am taking B6 this time and NO yakking yet! It's a miracle! I can't 100% say it is the B6 because I won't stop taking it to find out for sure. :) But my midwife thinks that's the difference.

Thia, EDD 11/14/11, I will be just about 35 when newbie comes (bday Nov 10). Bfp after 2 months and 1 loss greensad.gif

Hi, ladies! I am active on Diaperswappers, but decided that wasn't enough for me and joined up over here too. I have been lurking for a little while.

I am 6 wks, 3 days today, so still very nervous about this pregnancy. But, I have a "dating" scan today that will hopefully settle those nerves some.

This will be baby #3, also my last. We are hoping for a girl to balance things a little bit. Our 1st was supposed to be a HB, but after 48 hrs with ruptured membranes and no contractions, we had to head for the hossie for an unmedicated pitocin birth (ouch, IYKWIM). DS2 was a UC. We saw an OB through the pregnancy, but convieniently forgot to show up his birth. Surprise! He was a frank breech! My OB never once put her hands on my belly, or we might have known that smile.gif. Fortunately, he was fine, but it scared DH (who is a paramedic) so bad that he insists on our MW again this time. So, since this is the last, maybe we can finally have an uneventful, beautiful HB.

So far, I am having morning sickness a lot earlier than with my previous 2. And my fatigue is just now starting. I haven't gained any weight yet, in fact, since I am still nursing DS2, I think I have lost a little.

I look forward to getting to know you ladies!

Hi, new ladies. I promise I'll add you as soon as I get a chance.

 

It's finals week at school so I am going insane!!!

 

My next quarter starts the 4th of April. My teacher informed us today that we'll have labs the entire next quarter, WEEKLY and the first few labs we have will be dissecting cats. =( I called the doctor to make sure I could do that, because of the chemicals and such and he said as long as I wear a mask, I can do it. Poo. I was hoping he'd let me out of it. Hahaha.

I can understand why you feel that way, but please don't feel guilty.  You are doing what you need to do.  I hope that it will help you and you will feel much better very soon.

Ooh!  Thank you for the tip!  Going to go see if Whole Foods has some B6 tomorrow!

Hello-

This is my first pregnancy.  I'm 30.  EDD 11/4/11.  My husband and I were TTC for 4 months intermittantly, and I think we conceived the day after we got home from a great vacation out west with lots of hot springs and hiking.  We live in VT, along with our dog.  I work in various roles in healthcare primarily in the family practice and birth-related settings.  My first appt with the midwife is early April.  She is a naturopathic doctor and attends home births.  I hope she is able to hear a heartbeat because I would love to know I'm not this increadibly nauseated for nothing and I know I won't get an ultrasound unless it's needed for some other reason.  I am living in the present though, not stressing becuase I'm too nauseated to feel much of anything else.  Can't even enjoy these new boobs ;)

Welcome ratchet!

 

Amanda: Don't feel guilty! The best thing you can do for the baby is get some calories in there. However you have to do that is the best way, you're taking good care of it!

 

I had my second sonogram today. Heart rate went from 98 last week to 154 this week. And the baby itself has tripled in size! Was it on here that I read the article about which side of the uterus it implants on determines the gender? Seems a little far fetched, but I asked the tech today. This baby is on the right side, which should be mean boy. Crossing my fingers that it's right!
