Anyone else due July 2014?? I'm due the 4th!!
It looks like we would need two co-leaders to volunteer to open the July DDC according to this post. Anyone up to volunteering?
I made my first appointment, too! Actually it's more like an interview, since I haven't met this particular midwife before.
Yes, I think Christmas time makes sense to tell people... I wonder if I can hold out that long. I want to tell everyone!!
Oh wow, congratulations!!
Ah! My people! I got 2 + on the 28th but they were so faint and showed up so late (technically within the testing window, though) that I wouldn't get my hopes up. As of today, the line was significantly darker and showed up faster. So, wonderful! It is just now beginning to sink in.
--As far as symptoms, they have been much more subtle and PMS-like than my first pregnancy, to the point that I absolutely believed I was not pregnant. Contrast that with my first baby, when I KNEW I was pregnant even when I was still getting negatives.
I'm so excited for the DDC to open! What exactly does being a group leader entail? Sometimes I have spells where I am do not even have net access, so I'm not sure if it's something I can do. In any case, I hope it opens soon. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you.
Being a group leader is pretty minimal. You just accept new members if it's a closed group (which ours wouldn't be). You don't moderate the boards or anything. It mostly just a title thing so they have people to get the group going, as far as I can tell.
Let me know if anyone is interested!
We're due *sometime in July* -- dates are a little tricky this time as I'm BF our 7.5-month-old, was having 17-day cycles, and then BAM - nothing. Sooo....yes.
I may consider being a moderator for July 2014.....just be forewarned that I'm not constantly attached to the internet - I do have a life away from the outside world.
ETA: I'm not available for nights or weekends - that's specifically family time.
LilyTiger, APBTlover, and JonsWife, congratulations! So happy to see more July mamas!!
Kittymom, yay! Congrats!! I'm 40 also.
Who else is already having symptoms? I can't tell if I'm actually having symptoms or just recovering from a really stressful round of traveling and then work. I was super sweaty today, which seemed a little odd and I've been having really tiny bursts of nausea, but they don't last long enough for me to be sure they're not in my head. I'm really hoping I can get my exercise and diet under control again after my travels in the next week or two before the real first trimester gross-ness kicks in. I'm only about 3-4 weeks (due July 15) and I can't remember when I started having symptoms last time, but it wasn't until 6-7 weeks I think.
Yes, I feel like I am pacing around waiting for the group to open, too. :) My only "symptoms" are things that could also just be natural variations in preference (for instance, suddenly wanting to eat meat at every meal) or just in my head (fleeting moments of nausea, peeing more often some days, emotional wreckage!). This wouldn't bother me if I hadn't had such clear symptoms with my first, before the + even started showing up. I have one more test lying around, so I think I'll be taking it in the morning just to see what's going on.
