Cari I can tell you the trick of taking floradix (man it's bitter!)...it's the only iron my stomach can take so i've had to find coping strategies!  LOL

 

Pour a cup of orange juice and dump in the floradix.  Grab a straw, stir well and drink it fast as you continue stirring the end of it (you want to get the bottom stuff first so your last drink is OJ!).

 

It makes it totally doable!

this is going to make my mother sound awful but she was somewhat relieved that I miscarried in April. Another baby was a bit more than she expected (us too to be honest :) ) 

actually most everyone was shocked and I have little doubt they will be again when we tell them (still wondering if I can hold out until the new year :) ) . See we have the van for moving more than just our family so the question remains why does our extra vehicle need to as well?? 

Ah well its really none of their business, I just know that some are wondering and because of the reaction to our announcement in the spring (maybe that should be announcmentS) I am not looking forward to dealing with the reactions this time around. Then we can add my own fears and concerns regarding being pregnant again myself! it all starts to get overwhelming! 

whew! I think I need to go back to the breathing :) LOL

Had an early ultrasound yesterday. My symptoms basically stopped a week ago, so we had been questioning viability, but we saw our little gummy bear looking baby and its heart beating away (167) yesterday. DH was so relieved! He almost passed out.

They said May 2, but I still think April 25. What is the margin of 'error'? The ultrasound was abdominal, not vaginal

11 weeks and 1 day.  This morning I noticed that I had a fat roll pop out from nowhere.  I still look fairly thin from my hips down but there is suddenly a soft roll that just sticks out. It's sudden and there is actually a crease under it. This is my fourth and nothing like this has ever happened before.  Anyone else have this happen? (I'm pretty grossed out by it)

I'm noticing that I'm looking fuller in a sense. I had still been losing weight before I got pregnant and my stomach skin was kind of loose. Now it's looking full, round and not so loose. I know I might start getting sideways looks soon. 10w2d

I feel so behind everyone else! I just tested last night and got a positive. I'm going tomorrow for confirmation from the doctor, and then I have to figure out what we're going to do about insurance. We are going to try and get me on His insurance, but it seems like someone told me pregnancy is sometimes considered a pre-existing condition, so I might not be able to? I don't know. But I would really like to have a midwife with this baby, and maybe even a home-birth (if He is okay with it, we haven't talked about it since DS was born 3.5 years ago), but I don't know how many there are here in Central Indiana. If anyone is familiar, I wouldn't mind help.redface.gif DS and DD were born in Tennessee, so things are a lot different here.

 

I haven't gotten sick at all this pregnancy, just constant nausea. It's not terrible, but sometimes I wish I would just get sick and be done, you know? I keep reading about y'all having ultrasounds, and hearing the heartbeat, and I'm excited to get to that. I wish it was yesterday! This is the latest I've been and just found out.

Oh FML! DH and I were just able to go on a nice little dinner date together and we chose to go to Outback Steakhouse which is somewhere we haven't gone forever. We had a nice meal, enjoyed a non-rushed adult conversation and then came home. The second I walked into the kitchen something sent me into gags and I just barely made it to the kitchen sink before getting rid of the entire meal. =( Thanks goodness for running water and garbage disposals though! Soooo much better than puking in a toilet. 

 

I'm not really nauseas on a regular basis anymore (hooray!) but stuff like that will no doubt still happen. The only good thing about it is feeling sooo much better once it's all over with.

Don't quote me on this, since I haven't lived in the States for a while and I'm not 100% sure, but I think that part of Obamacare is making it so insurance companies can no longer refuse to cover someone because of a pre-existing condition (nor can they charge women more for coverage, just because they're women). But I'm not sure when each of the changes goes into effect. Some started right away, and some will be implemented over the next few years.

Bmcneal - if you can't get on your SO insurance, Medicaid is an option. There are no income restrictions for pregnancy care coverage. (I don't know if they would cover a midwife tho, that would prob depend on which state you are in) in our area none of the midwives that do home birth accept insurance, they charge a certain price that covers all prenatal, delivery and postnatal care... And it's paid over time (monthly)

This isn't exactly true (at least in my state). There are income restrictions but they are much higher than for applying for medicaid as a nonpregnant woman. Either way, it is definately worth looking into.

Thanks evreybody. I'm going to go get an "official" test done in the morning, and go from there. I'll check into the Medicaid, too, since His insurance doesn't start until end of November.

We have our first US scheduled for Friday, and I'm getting anxious! Getting chubby, too... My nausea has not resulted in vomiting once during this pg, which is nice, but my hunger is crazy and my cravings are driving me to eat in order to stave off MS. Lame. I'd just gotten back into my smallest pre preg jeans, but already that's a thing of the past.

Anyone else thinking of belly binding post partum?

I got the official test done, still pregnant. *surprise* But because she went by LMP, she put that I'm due January 2013. But I was taking Seasonique, which means only four periods a year, so I guess we have to wait and get an ultrasound. If I go by when I stopped taking the Seasonique, that would put me getting pregnant at the end of July/beginning of August, which would mean I'm due middle to end April. She said "that would put you due in January." And I just looked at DF like, "No, I'm not." Ugh, just frustrated. I go back at ten. Hopefully they'll be able to tell me something more then.

I learned this today. At 10 weeks, do not order a size up in your old brand of jeans and think that will cut it. I think I should've gone 2 sizes up! Also, size large pants at Forever 21 is only large if you are a) not brewing a baby and b) actually a size 4 or 6. I should've known, ordering from Forever 21, right?

This is why after three kids I have a complete wardrobe ranging from size 4-16. I just go through the sizes until I feel like maternity clothes undefined

That's awesome! What did you use? I tried a waist band last time, but it really wasn't enough support or coverage and I wasn't impressed with the result.

kellykins, it was one of many, many odd pregnancy dreams. But I usually forget them shortly after waking.
