Oh hang in there I'm can kinda relate, see once I found out we where pregnant and see how this is are first we moved back home to Ma. cause i wanted to be close to my family in Vt. and his family for support and help, The only thing is is i work for myself and after moving things went down hill fast with my job and my husband is in the Army and had to wait a month to find out when he needed to go to school so he was unable to look for work once we came back.on top of it all I've been looking for Insurance so I could set up an appointment with a midwife to make sure everything is ok with the baby. So thankfully we have some help from his family but we still have a long way to go before everything gets back to normal.

Tillymonster & LetniaLynne, I hope stuff goes smootly with your transitions. We're contemplating a move, too, and the timing of this pregnancy means I'm putting off beginning an academic program I've been looking forward to for another year, because I just don't think it's feasible to plan to start school next August. Which sucks, cause I'm not gettin any younger.
That's great, mrsandmrs, glad you're feeling better :)
This has been my easiest pregnancy so far in terms of nausea (pregnancy #7, but baby #4). Coming on the heels of a miscarriage last fall, the absence of significant morning sickness really had me worried. MS did eventually kick in and I do feel nauseated every day, throughout the day, but it's nothing compared to last time! I hope I'm just lucky this time around. I also don't look pregnant yet, and I'm really pleased with that. I started most of my other pregnancies at my usual weight, which is on the skinny side, and this time I'm still carrying about 15 lbs extra that I haven't taken off since having DS over a year and a half ago, so maybe that makes a difference. Whatever it is, I'll take it- not ready to have the secret revealed just yet.
I've also been having weird, intense dreams, too. I had one yesterday while napping with DS- in it DP, DS and I were at my mom's house and my dad was there, too. My mom started tearing into my dad, just yelling and yelling, very angry and irrational. Then she chased him out of the house and I was filled with this sense of terror and an urgent need to flee, but I couldn't get all our stuff gathered quickly enough. I was just so afraid she was coming back. It was awful. And strange, because while we've had our differences, my mom and I have been getting along just fine, for a while now. It helps that I live in another state :)
I keep hearing about Downton Abbey, too! I think I'll watch the first episode with my DDs tonight!
Jumping in to share. Food aversions getting better. I feel ultra chunky in my middle :) 9 weeks 2 days today. I have a crazy sex drive as usual but baby's father and I are complicated :( We actually love each other like crazy but he has depression issues that I was unaware of as we were only a few months in and blissfully happy in love. He is broken over this and other issues in his life. Orgasms scare me anyway. I had a mc with first pregnancy and heavy bleeding for ten days starting at 10 1/2 weeks with second pregnancy which began after sex/orgasm. He is 18 now :) I aso had bleeding with fourth pregnancy, third son starting at 12 weeks that lasted a few days. My third pregnancy was wonderful minus the PIH in the end. This pregnancy reminds me very much of that one except even easier.
On Thursday, I went into work and somehow all of night shift knew I was pregnant so I shared with everyone openly. I am so happy I did. I am a LPN on a maternity unit and I really believed that I would be judged harshly being my age (41) and single and a mom to three teen boys. THOSE WOMEN ARE SO EXTREMELY SUPPORTIVE AND EXCITED!!! I am blessed among women and I am sooooo much happier now about my circumstances. I am almost done with my RN but have major hurdles to overcome before the baby is born and I may have to find a job as my nurse manager only wants 12 hr shifts and I do not want 12. I also must have day shift as I do not have a partner to be with the baby on eve or nights. Huge, crazy year ahead but quite frankly I have broad shoulders and truthfully, I do have peace with all of this. God has a plan and I trust Him :)
Telling my boys and my oldest son's girlfriend tomorrow.............Scariest part yet.
. As soon as I felt it I thought "baby", but I'm not going to call it for sure as I'm only 10 weeks tomorrow. I felt my first at 15 weeks or so (with an anterior placenta) and my second around 13, so I have a history of feeling movement pretty early. I guess time will tell.
That's pretty much the timing of feeling my 3 babies!
i think i got too cocky about how much better i was feeling. i skipped my unisom / b6 last night. i didnt vomit today, but i was definitely uncomfortable and nauseous most of the day. i didn't enjoy much of my food and gagged a lot.
we "facebook announced" over yesterday and today.... first we announced the pregnancy, then a day later, we announced it is actually twins. so, we have been drowning in the well-wishing of a couple hundred people from our lifetime of friends and acquaintances. it has been overwhelming, and also overwhelmingly positive and exciting.
the other weird/exciting pregnancy thing from my world .... today i felt a weird sensation around my uterus. it kind of felt.... like a vibration or something? it was unlike anything i've ever felt before (RLP, gas, cramps...) my wife, who has been pregnant before, thought my description sounded like feeling one of the babies. i have no idea if that is what i felt, but how weird if i did!
Mrs&mrs- I got cocky too. Even though I didn't throw up yesterday morning I was still extremely nauseous all day. And I did resume my dry heaving this morning before I could eat anything. I bet you did feel one of the babies! I am almost 100% sure I have felt mine move a couple times over the last few days.
Yeeeey for almost being done with first trimester! My neasua is pretty much gone now, but still having very strong food aversions to meat which is pretty common for me.
I hope everyone is feeling good this morning! I feel very emotional this morning over everything. We moved across country in Sept and I have not made any new friends here yet. I am missing my friends back in Texas alot! But I don't feel like working too hard and new friendships here, because we most likely will be moving again 2 cities over in about 6 months. So now I feel lonely :( Perhaps this is my time to be alone and work on myself and my family. humm thoughts for the day.
I woke up early this morning and laid awake for a while thinking about how to clean up/reorganize clothes, paperwork etc. I ended up falling back asleep and when I woke up again I could've sworn it was past 11am but it wasn't even 9am... So I think that's my plan for the day. Since I always feel better in the mornings I will do that now and then I'll see how much energy I've got left over this afternoon. I'm actually kind of excited about it!
naturallyme: so cool that your colleagues are excited and supportive of you. Sometimes people can pleasantly surprise us!
bohemianmama: that sounds tough, because no matter how many online friends you have it's good to be able to meet up with a friend in person too. I don't think anyone would hold it against you if you started cultivating a friendship with them and then found out you were moving. It's become so much easier to stay in touch nowadays and you could end up making a true friend for life in which case FB, email etc. are such convenient ways to stay in contact.
dakipode- thanks, the thing is that I don't even feel like putting the effort into it, I just want my old besties to be here. Yes I know I sound like a dramatic teenager when I say that lol. I do have some fimilar faces that I see at the preschool story time at the library so I do get to talk to people just not on that intimate level, from a female stance, Hubby just doesn;t cut it sometimes.that is what I am really craving right now.
on a happy note I feel great today! I just wish I could keep my eyes open past 8:30! I miss hanging out with my hubby ;)
