I second yay for hear beats! I am waiting for my next apt. With midwives in sept. I will be 11 weeks. Renting a heart monitor is tempting but if I couldn't hear I would fret so waiting it is for me.
Judy, what a super cute outfit! Very inspiring. I am hoping to take a class to learn how to put my serger to better use in sept. But that involves an hour commute to the city. Where did you learn how to do that? Very cool. I wish we learned more sewing and knitting stuff in school(girls and boys).
Thursday, sorry to hear about your mom. Big big hugs!***heads up for mamas unable to read about the f**d word...skip this part*** About diff symptoms I feel this way too. With dd I was so sick I slept in front of the toilet and crawled to the bed(which felt like running a marathon) when I could muster up the strength. The thought of greens and meat and everything made me repulsed. I lost like 10-15 pounds. This baby I feel queasy but only got sick once. I can only eat cereal or oat meal during the day but at night I crave meat(last week made family drive to Cuban part of nj about an hour away so I could eat ropa vieja). I can eat it at night but there is no way I could prepare it my stomach isn't strng enough for that. Plus If I think about it too much it becomes repulsive to me. For weeks 2,3,4 of this pregnancy (two before finding out and one after) all I did was craft hot dogs, hamburgers, and peanut butter and these are three things I usually dislike. So, I think this might be a boy. But it's still kind of early I don't want to make that call. Lol
Momma2be, Good luck! Also I am from north jersey too.
Flavorful, how'd Irene treat you? I hope you are doing well. We are in north jersey and everything seems fine but across the street there is a pond when there is usually grass. Oops. All in all we are very fortunate.
