Ok, i read this thread so far, typically i'm horrible at keeping up with this sort of thing - but i need it to help me meet my goals of not telling anyone i'm pg (yet) - i need somewhere to vent and talk about pregnancy.
What's going on?
I'm pregnant!!! I am kind of riding the shock of that still..
When is your first appointment, if you are seeing a doctor or midwife?
I texted my (homebirth) midwife the other day, she texted me back that she was in the middle of back to back births/labors - so i haven't heard from her yet- i'm planning to call/text her again tomorrow or thursday if i don't hear anything. I expect she will want to see me soon - i think my first appointment was around 6 weeks last time.
What are you scared or anxious about?
Well, we were not TTC, we just stopped preventing this cycle - my cycles had been weird and i have been and did ovulate really late (CD 35) - I'm worried that my uterine lining wasn't ideal or something would be wrong with my egg(s) or something from having such a long cycle .. the only other time i got pregnant when i ovulated really late i had a miscarriage.. all signs point to a healthy pregnancy so far - i'm having a lot of symptoms (symptoms i didn't have when i had the m/c) i'd just like to get through a few more weeks and start feeling really horrible so i can know everything is still going ok.
What are you most excited about?
I'm excited about everything. I love babies. and as horrid as i feel during pregnancy, i love being pregnant. its just so exciting.
Have you bought anything yet? (dont be shy...)
no, and i doubt i will buy anything any time soon.. If we find out the gender i plan to buy newborn outfits but since i have 2 girls and a boy, i shouldn't have to buy much.. though i will likely need some newborn/0-3 mo winter clothes for a feb. baby if i have a boy - if i have a girl i should be fine since i had a girl in march. i keep everything. lol.
What is one aspect of your health that you are trying to change for the better during this pregnancy?
as i said in another thread - this is my first pregnancy off Soda!! I'm so proud of that! and caffeine! my big big goal for this pregnancy is to stay off sugar and junk food, so far so good. normally i live off fast food and mac and cheese in the first trimester (not literally, but it has been pretty bad in the past) - i have been eating nuts and seeds for snacks, and so far that is going alright. i know it will get worse. but i'm keeping my fingers crossed that my morning sickness won't be so bad without all that crap food and soda.. I'm also telilng myself that without all that soda and sugar that my baby may be smaller, or better fit to my frame.. my other babies have been VERY difficult to push out and i'm just hoping that this will make a difference.. please please let it make a difference .!!
What's your favorite color?
green .. :)
Any hobbies that keep you busy?
children!! lol seriously. i love to sew and make things, but i just don't have time with 3 kids..
