Hello, I'm 29 (will be 30 when baby arrives), and this is #1 -- we are thinking this is the first and the last. Due 5/8/2012.
Boobs are killing me, a little nausea. The bloating is unreal - I've already incorporated some maternity pants and a belly band. The pants are a little big but my normal pants are really uncomfortable, so I'm kind of in limbo.
I don't notice the extra trips to the bathroom except at night. For awhile I was waking up at 5:30, this morning it was 2:30.
I am curious to know from you more experienced mamas what sort of clues one gets about gender. In my mom's family, we went more than 30 years between baby boys (1977-2009). So from that I feel girl vibes, but then there's my dad's side, and my husband's genetics, etc. Not that gender selection is genetic anyway.
Also, do all doctors do beta testing and/or 1st trimester ultrasounds? I would really like a confirmation to ease my worries but haven't even been given an appointment at the OB yet.
