Hi HeatherB! Congratulations! It's physically impossible for us to have a surprise pregnancy, so my first gut reaction is one of barely suppressed glee, but it doesn't take much to imagine that sort of shock and then the mental gymnastics required to come around to the reality of it.
FarmerCathy, my dd has been insistent that I will have triplets for the past several months. I'm just going to chalk it up to wishful thinking, because I think I might actually have a heart attack otherwise. ;)
This is sort of tmi, but I've been having some pretty nasty GI issues for the past couple of days. I know it can be normal, but I'm still a bit shaken as the idea of all of that movement in such close vicinity to that little poppy seed-sized bean in there is a little concerning to me. Kind of in the same vein of how taking too much vit c can cause a miscarriage. My partner rolls his eyes and tells me to relax. Bah. I just don't think they get it until there's a belly to been seen and a baby to feel. (side note, I swear I *have* a little belly. At a whopping 4.5 weeks. I did at 6 weeks last time, so maybe not inconceivable? I know, I know, it's just bloat...)
Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving!
