My name is Rose! I've got a lovely husband J, two great stepchildren, a 16mo daughter, and this bean on the way! I'm a younger mama. I tested yesterday and got my BFP, two years and one week to the day I found out I was pregnant with my daughter. I was only about 9DPO (but I have an 11 day LP so not surprising) and probably due somewhere between the 23-28. It was our first week (!!) trying. It only took one weekend with my daughter as well.
So far I'm just really emotional, peeing and eating LOTS, and ((TMI WARNING)) gassy, and somewhat dry as far as trying to have sex. I've felt a bit weird, don't know how to explain. I just knew! :) With my daughter I had moderate HG up until 15 weeks and mild HG all the way until 20 weeks, so far so good...I'm hoping not to get it this time.
I scheduled a consultation with a semi-local midwife for next week seeing as I need a conf. of pregnancy for insurance.
Although I've just joined Mothering, I was part of a separate pregnancy/parenting forum before and it just got way too heated ALL the time even while we were all having babies. I had my daughter August 7th, and really just stopped going after that because of all the flame wars. I couldn't enjoy it anymore because it was all about who was in the "cliques."
I'm hoping to meet some like-minded mamas due around the same time and forge indispensable friendships along the way.
