Alright, here's May's thread!  I'm not sure if I got everyone from the March thread, but I looked through the April one.  I also updated the "in our thoughts" section, but I might have missed someone there, too.  Please let me know if anything needs fixing or updating.  I'm not sure what's up with the formatting as I just copied and pasted, but that's this new format for you.

 

So, ladies... what's on your minds?  smile.gif

post #3 of 68

Hi, Jaimee. wave.gif Thanks for the new thread!

 

I'm officially in the 2nd trimester and I'm starting to feel a bit more human again. I'm still taking meds multiple times a day, but the list of foods I can stomach has grown a lot. I'm dehydrated some of the time, but my food intake is good... I think I've even gained a little weight! So all good stuff!

 

I'm dying to find out what the gender is!!!! I need to mentally prepare. Right now we have three girls and I really, really want a fourth. So do dp and the two younger girls. I'm going to have a brief freak out period if it turns out to be a boy, so I'm ready to know and get that over with. Chinese gender chart says boy and it was right for my other two..... 

 

How is everyone else??

post #4 of 68

 

add me to list: due november 13th, lost our son in October to SIDS and got pregnant on our first try with this baby.
 

 

I'm thoroughly enjoying being less sick and tolerating foods again. Planning a home birth, love our midwife.

AprilGlynn- Welcome!  I am so sorry for your loss.  Fox candle.gif

 

 

post #6 of 68

I am having the hardest time posting!  Whenever I backspace to correct or something it deletes everything I wrote, and half the time I cant put line breaks in between things I am saying.  Grr.

 

WELCOME April!  Glad you can join us!

 

 

Im envying you girls who are feeling better- 2 more weeks and my first tri is OVER.

Yes MDC's new format is full of glitches.  For me it takes FOREVER to load the ads so anytime I click on a thread, click reply, etc. it takes a long time, which is super annoying.  I know that has been driving a lot of members away.  I've really noticed that there is a dearth of interesting threads lately on all the forums and a lot of posts have zero or only one reply for days at a time.  It's really too bad.

Had my first prenatal appointment today and felt like a crabby old timer. No I do not have syphilis, no I do not want genetic screening, and no, don't base my due date on my LMP!  eyesroll.gif

post #9 of 68

Please add me to the list too

age 41.

Due Nov 27 with identical twins

Nursing DS who is 34 months.

 

My ob did not believe me when I told him I knew the date of conception. I chart I told him. Well he still did not believe me...for various reasons I am not happy with him. Due to insurance reasons I am forced to see an ob verses midwife. THere are only a handful of docs who do vbacs so that limits my choice even more. He tried to scare me from trying a vbac too but he said he would support my decision. This pregnancy is tough physically and mentally. I am super excited but oh so nervous at the same time.

Yeah, I'm not staying with this midwife practice as we're moving in a few months.  I'll then have to decide between a few homebirth midwives all of which have fairly major cons or a hospital birth with CNM's.  Or a UC, but I don't think we'll go that direction.  Anyway, I posted my last post to FaceBook and had two people ask me why you wouldn't use your LMP for your due date.  Do you ever feel like you're constantly educating people about things that should be so normal/common knowledge?  It's amazing to me how little most Americans know about fertility, pregnancy, and birth.

Seriously!  I'm amazed at how often I have to explain conception/ovulation, etc. to people (and people with kids!).

 

I haven't joined the "ONE" thread yet but joined the DDC... not quite sure how this all works... don't want to be repetitive but I'm a mom to a 20-month-old and due with #2 11/23.  

 

Just bought some slim fitting maternity jeans at a thrift store and am LOVING them.  Was wearing bigger jeans but they were uncomfortable and unflattering.  I laughed at thinking about wearing maternity pants this early (11 weeks!), but once I tried them on I was hooked.  They won't fit through the whole pregnancy, but I am so much more comfortable and have received compliments on how great I look (from people that don't even know I'm pregnant)- so that made me feel great!  I have a few stretchy skirts to get me through until my maternity clothes from my first pregnancy fit.

 

This week, my husband met with the midwives I chose and loves them as much as I do so we're stoked to plan our first home birth!  Had a really great natural hospital birth with our son, but the only negatives were driving to the hospital and trying to check out of the hospital so we agreed to go the midwife/homebirth route this time (likely our last).  

 

Looking forward to moving into the second trimester, starting to feel better already and really need to get back to exercising!  Took some time off for the first trimester due to exhaustion and nausea, but ready to workout again : )  Hope everyone is enjoying spring and feeling good!

I'm having a rough day ladies.  Mother's Day was largely ruined despite my dh's best efforts to make the day special.  We're in the process of selling our house and a couple decided Mother's Day was a good day to come look at it.  We ended up spending the day mowing the lawn and cleaning up the house so that they could arrive just before dinner.  My dd was in a bad mood all day and kept asking to see her friends.  My ds decided only to take one nap so he was a pill by the time the late afternoon rolled around.  And I could tell I was coming down with a cold.  A cold that kept me up ALL night last night so that I'm exhausted and nauseous today.  After dropping my dd off at preschool I get a call saying that I forgot to pack her a lunch for her special park picnic today and was then asked if I or my dh was going to come to the park.  I feel like a terrible mom.  ARGH!

 

I'm still not feeling great, but I just heard from our real estate agent that the couple that ruined Mother's Day loved our house!  It's their favorite by far!  We have been trying to sell for months and this would be such a great relief as we are moving in July.   Fingers crossed that kharma is swinging back around.

 

How is everyone else doing today?

post #17 of 68

Thanks for starting the new thread! Can you change my due date to November 6?

 

Things here are good. I'm 14 weeks 1 day today and hardly ever feeling nauseous anymore. Although, I went from constantly nauseous straight to constantly starving! I'm running out of foods that sound good to me. I'm so burnt out on everything right now! I had lost some weight at my last appointment, 4 weeks ago. I have an appointment this Wednesday and think I've definitely made up for the weight I had lost. Family members are telling me how much my belly has popped in the last couple of weeks, so I think this growth spurt has a lot to do with how hungry I've been.

 

I made a trip to visit my SIL while she was working (she's an OB nurse). She offered to take a peek at the baby to see if we could make a guess at gender and the baby was as uncooperative as possible! We got a clear profile view, full frontal face shot, but could only see down to the belly. Its butt was pointed toward my spine the whole time, so we couldn't even make a guess at what it was! She said I could come back in two weeks when she works again, but I think I'll just wait. The ultrasound with my doctor's office will be only a couple of weeks after that, so I think I can stand the wait.

I'm tired of eating, too.  Especially when there are so few foods that ever sound good.  It seems like in order to have a successful dinner that doesn't end in panting to prevent dry heaving, I have to eat a mini-meal about 1-2 hours prior to dinner.  It's crazy!

post #19 of 68

Jaimee-sorry about how yucky you feel. I can relate too. My DS caught a cold about 5 days ago and last night was at its worse. He was up every hour or so crying. I have not slept well in over a week. Today is rough. I am super nauseous but hungry and to top it all off I have DSs cold.

We are in the process of building a house and selling our house too. Now with twins coming we need to find another vehicle. Life is good though. I am just glad I got pregnant and lucky to have a loving family.

Thanks!  I know... we need to upgrade our car, too.  Three kiddos = minivan!  We're looking into the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, and the Mazda MPV.  Yes, new car, new house, new state, new baby...  time for a nap.
