post #21 of 41
How far are you along today? 8 wks 6 days

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? DH & I are both finding it impossible to refer to this baby as a boy. But that could just be because we already have a DD. Still, we have both been caught regularly saying things like "we have daughters" or "the girls".

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better? Yes, I've had it. Worse this time than last. It seems to be getting better & then worse again. Tomorrow will be 9 weeks so I hope we're turning a corner on that. From the moment I've gotten up this morning everything has made me want to hurl (luckily I havn't actually HAD to hurl yet).

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? Yes, and I'm actually enjoying it more or less but DH is definitly the ONLY one initiating things at the moment. I feel kind of obliged to enjoy it though since with my last pg I completely and totally lost the ability to O (sorry if TMI!) once I was a few months along! Not looking forward to that again. :

Cravings? Aversions? What are they? Oh...chicken just makes me ill. Smelling it cooking even does me in. And I normally love chicken! Also, making soy milk in our soy milk maker for some reason really turns my stomach. The only real craving I've had was for nectarines. Although I've been eating a lot more red meat lately because it's the only type of meat I can seem to eat and actually still enjoy.

Boobs and breastfeeding? My boobs aren't too sore, but they weren't last time either. DD has already weaned so breastfeeding isn't an issue for us.

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet? No, but I know it's coming. At this point I'd actually prefer the heartburn over the nausea. At least the heartburn I can drink an aspirin free Alka Selter or take a couple Tums and it will GO AWAY for awhile!

Mood? Are in your usual mood? Definitly not. Can you say hormonal? : :

Energy level? How tired are you? Actually, this is starting to get better finally! There were a couple days where DD & I pretty much stayed in bed all day & watched cartoons. : Still a little tired, but definitly improving.

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing? I can wear my regular jeans because I lost 20 lbs before becoming pg. Right now I'm wearing a maternity shirt & a pair of stretchy pants that I wore just about the whole time I was pg with DD.

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy? Hmmm...havn't thought about that before. It's interesting to see how it's going compared to my first one. I'm looking forward to feeling the baby kick & finding out the gender around 20 weeks. I'm also looking forward to the chance to breastfeed again & do another natural birth.

Appt's when's your next appt? First week of July.

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc? Not sure. Why don't we see how this one goes?

How far are you along today? 8 weeks 5 days

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? (You don't have to share what you think it is, if you don't want too.) everyone thinks boy...I think girl though

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better? nope, I'm lucky I guess

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? (Don't need to share if you don't want too.) I do only because I give into dh. I really don't wanna, but he'll die if we stop now

Cravings? Aversions? What are they? I crave everything and have aversions to nothing!

Boobs and breastfeeding? Are your boobs sore, how are you dealing with breastfeeding (if applicable). It's all groovy so far

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet? no, but I know it will be coming

Mood? Are in your usual mood? I'm a little more bitchy than usual

Energy level? How tired are you? So, so tired!

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing? mostly normal clothes, but sometimes I feel too bloated and need to wear my track pants or loose shorts

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy? being able to tell everyone

Appt's when's your next appt? June 27th, I think....

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc? monthly
post #23 of 41
How far are you along today? 11 weeks, 5 days

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? (You don't have to share what you think it is, if you don't want too.) No intuition. DD still insists she's having a baby sister that she has named "flower"

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better? Yup, have it bad. Started meds (unisom) for it so now its at least bearable

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? (Don't need to share if you don't want too.) Not much of one. I'm kinda into absitenence the first trimester

Cravings? Aversions? What are they? They change every day. Right now craving a peanut buster parfait from Dairy Queen. Trying to satiate it with some natural vanilla ice cream...

Boobs and breastfeeding? Are your boobs sore, how are you dealing with breastfeeding (if applicable). Very sore, and still breastfeeding. Hurts when DD latches on and every time she sucks. I hope it gets better as I get out of this first trimester! I definitely am still producing milk though.

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet? Yup, have heartburn periodically, but not reflux

Mood? Are in your usual mood? Definitely a cranky pants and everything makes me cry (especially those hallmark card commercials)

Energy level? How tired are you? Exhausted. Completely exhausted. Poor DD is a little bored with mommy right now.

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing? Still just "fat" clothes though most pants are starting to be very uncomfortable if I try to sit in them. Maternity still looks a little ridiculous though.

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy? Natural childbirth!!! In the closer future, feeling the little one moving around inside of me consistently- there is no other feeling like it in the world.

Appt's when's your next appt? Have an OB appointment for my 12 week check-up next Wednesday, and I'm interviewing a midwife a birthcenter I really want to use the following week!

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc? Monthly
post #24 of 41
How far are you along today?
I'm 10 weeks, 2 days.

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? (You don't have to share what you think it is, if you don't want too.)
No real intuition yet, but I'm hoping girly thoughts.

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better?
M/S is definitely getting better! Woo-hoo!

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? (Don't need to share if you don't want too.)
We have sex about once a week, usually after I have an erotic dream. It's pretty good!

Cravings? Aversions? What are they?
I'm pretty tired of eating and thinking about food in general. I've been hungry for pizza, fruit, and tomato soup lately. I'm still not that into chicken, veggies, or most dairy.

Boobs and breastfeeding? Are your boobs sore, how are you dealing with breastfeeding (if applicable).
They're sore and tender, and I'm not breastfeeding.

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet?
I get heartburn once and awhile. It's not too bad.

Mood? Are in your usual mood?
My moods fluctuate quite a bit. I'm happy, lovey, tired, mad, impatient, bossy, etc etc all in the same day. Definitely not my usual mood.

Energy level? How tired are you?
I'm starting to feel more alive, which is so nice. I get tired pretty quickly in the evenings and need over 8 hours of sleep at night.

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing?
Regular clothes, but not tight ones. I'm wearing loose skirts, mostly.

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy?
Showing! And feeling the baby move.

Appt's when's your next appt?
Probably in a week or two. We're deciding on a midwife right now.

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc?
Monthly would be good in this format, but we could do a weekly "general discussion/how're you feeling" thread.

Nice thread!
post #25 of 41
I thought this would be fun... I have seen similar ones on other ddc's...

How far are you along today? 10 weeks (not real sure about my exact due date)

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? (You don't have to share what you think it is, if you don't want too.) I have been wrong TWICE now and thought both ds were GIRLS so I am convinced my mother's intuition is shot. I really want a girl, so I am assuming this one is a boy too until I am proven otherwise. LOL!

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better? I have all day sickness but have only vomited once (that is what I get for taking prenatal vitamins) in all three of my pregnancies that was the only time I have thrown up. But the weeks of nausea are killer.

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? (Don't need to share if you don't want too.) I wish my husband was home (and the kids weren't) during the times I want to! It's not happenin' after we get the kids to bed. Too nauseous.

Cravings? Aversions? What are they? Craving really bad for me fast food that I haven't eaten in YEARS. Most healthy things and anything I have to cook are an aversion right now.

Boobs and breastfeeding? Are your boobs sore, how are you dealing with breastfeeding (if applicable). Still nursing 20 month old ds. Nipples are sore when he latches on. Otherwise don't feel them at all.

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet? NOPE.

Mood? Are in your usual mood? No. I hate all the stupid wrong things my dh does and I am crabby.

Energy level? How tired are you? Almost too tired to function.

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing? I refuse to wear maternity clothes this early so I bought some new shorts because we just moved and apprently I didn't save any from last summer. But I bought them way to big.

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy? Finding out if it is a girl or another wonderful son (at the birth)

Appt's when's your next appt? Haven't even scheduled a first one yet!

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc? Monthly

Anything else you want to add?
Maybe what kind of a provider we are seeing, DR., Midwife, UP/UC?
post #26 of 41
How far are you along today?

9 weeks 6 days

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? (You don't have to share what you think it is, if you don't want too.) I do but my lips are sealed for now.

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better? I have it, I thought it was getting better but today has not been a good one.

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? (Don't need to share if you don't want too.) not really more poor husband, thank heavens for good pregnancy dreams.

Cravings? Aversions? What are they? meat aversions, no real cravings yet.

Boobs and breastfeeding? Are your boobs sore, how are you dealing with breastfeeding (if applicable). My boobs are sore but my ds weaned almost 2 years ago.

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet? yes I love the rolaids softchews.

Mood? Are in your usual mood? I'm pretty irritable

Energy level? How tired are you? exhausted

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing? still in regular clothes I have lost 2 lbs.

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy?
I can't wait until I start feeling movement, then I think it will really start to feel real, and when my dh and I will start picking names.
Appt's when's your next appt?

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc? I think monthly would be nice.

Anything else you want to add? THis is a good idea thanks for starting it.
post #27 of 41
How far are you along today? 8 weeks exactly

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? No, though our boy's name keeps floating to mind.

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better? Definitely have it, and while its still here quite prominently I definitely feel better than I did in an on-again off-again kind of way.

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? Not really. Too tired, and DH gets freaked out about knowing the baby is there. Just waiting for that 2nd trimester surge. :

Cravings? Aversions? What are they? It keeps changing. I have a lot of aversions to anything protein and a lot of dairy. Mostly I want to eat junk... I have newly discovered KFC, and ice cream and Pringles are staples. I am eating a lot of fruit though, which is good, and some salad.

Boobs and breastfeeding? Are your boobs sore, how are you dealing with breastfeeding (if applicable). Mine are sore a little, and have grown a cup and a band size, which didnt happen in either prior pregnancy! I weaned in November so I am happy to have had a break from BFing before starting in again.

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet? I have had some heartburn.

Mood? Are in your usual mood? I'm a total bitch at the moment.

Energy level? How tired are you? The utter bone-deep exhaustion seems to have passed, and now I am just plain tired, but reasonably functional again.

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing? Sadly, maternity pants. I have a few pairs of drawstring or elastic that fit too. I dont need maternity shirts really, but am wearing them to cover some of my old-fashioned huge-panel mat. pants.

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy? See above about the sex. Also, feeling movement and getting to know this little one. Other than that I am just panicked about coping with three.

Appt's when's your next appt? Next wednesday, though I had my MW give me a poke today just because my hubby was so freaked out that it might be twins. She said I'm measuring right where I should so I'm not worried.

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc? Monthly for now, I'd say and weekly later when there is more to report?
post #28 of 41
How far are you along today? 8 weeks and 4 days

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? (You don't have to share what you think it is, if you don't want too.)

ummm I think it might be twins, I kinda hope it is twins, but I will be ok if it isnt. Other than that I just want a healthy baby.

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better?

It's getting worse

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? (Don't need to share if you don't want too.) :

Cravings? Aversions? What are they?

Craving, fresh food. Aversions, well everything looks yucky til I actually eat it.

My Nips are starting to feel better actually.
I could bear bfeeding 2 weeks ago

How far are you along today? 9w6d

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? Not really, DD says she's having a sister, LOL!

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better?Not really, pretty queasy at times, threw up once. It seems to be getting better this week.

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? NOPE! Poor DH... Just SO SO not interested!

Cravings? Aversions? What are they?Cravings- popsicles, fresh fruit, chocolat milk Aversions- really varies- lately, red meat

Boobs and breastfeeding? Are your boobs sore, how are you dealing with breastfeeding (if applicable). Varies, some days OK, other OUCH! Working on cutting down length of nursing sessions and night weaning. DD seems to be nursing MORE to get all the milk she can since my supply is dropping.

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet?Nope!

Mood? Are in your usual mood?Um, no.. Very crabby with DH. I seem to be OK with other people and DD though. But poor DH gets the brunt of it! :

Energy level? How tired are you?So tired, but can't sleep. I try to nap with DD but wake up. I tend to fall asleep with DD at bed time at about 9pm and I'm usually down for the count.

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing? Mostly my own, only one pair of jeans still fit. I'm wearing 'early' maternity shorts right now. Morning I'm OK, but by 5pm or so, I'm pretty PG!

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy?Feeling the baby move, watching DD react, that magic of creating life feeling.. I loved being PG with DD and am excited to do this all again!

Appt's when's your next appt?Should be next week but I have to reschedule, probably two weeks from now, at 12 weeks

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc? Monthly or bi-weekly would be fun!

Anything else you want to add?Just enjoying MDC, it's so nice to have such a natural living friendly community, where I am not the crazy breastfeeding a toddler lady!
post #31 of 41
How far are you along today? 9w2d

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? Heartbeat was 189 (!) the other day, so I can't help but think it's a girl. However, based on when we concieved (on O day), I would think it's a boy. In other words, I have no idea.

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better? It's so bad, and it doesn't feel like it's getting better. I am nauseous all day long, but I only throw up occasionally (only in the morning).

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? Yes, probaby 2 or 3 x per week. And I initiate. I'm also a "do it yourself" girl. Second trimester, it get's even worse/better ???

Cravings? Aversions? What are they? Cravings - popsicles, KFC mashed potatoes, toaster struedal Aversions - cooking anything, and really, nothing sounds good

Boobs and breastfeeding? Are your boobs sore, how are you dealing with breastfeeding (if applicable). I am nursing DS (20 mo), and my nipples hurt so bad. We just successfully nightweaned about a week ago

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet? This is even worse for me than the nausea. My stomach hurts so bad I want to cry and it keeps me awake most nights. I just started taking acidophilus yesterday...hoping it will help.

Mood? Are in your usual mood? Laid back to the point of "I don't care." Not like me at all.

Energy level? How tired are you? Exhausted, but I have insomnia at night AND during the day when I try to nap with DS. With DS the age he is, I have never gotten a full night's sleep since he was born, so I have been tired for what feels like forever.

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing? I'm wearing maternity pants and shorts because they are more comfortable. Regular shirts.

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy? A home VBAC!! Also, really looking forward to 2nd trimester. I remember feeling SOOOO good during that time.

Appt's when's your next appt? First appt. with OB was Wed. Saw the heartbeat (and there's just one baby in there. Yeah!). First appt. with midwife is June 28.

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc? Monthly or bi-weekly

Anything else you want to add? At some point, lets put a question about names you are leaning toward.
post #32 of 41

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? (You don't have to share what you think it is, if you don't want too.) back and forth

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better? yes. Bad waves seems to be further and further apart.

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? (Don't need to share if you don't want too.) ummmm, who has time for that?

Cravings? Aversions? What are they? Looking at eggs makes me ill. Fruit, fruit and fruit.... oh and pizza always sounds good!

Boobs and breastfeeding? Are your boobs sore, how are you dealing with breastfeeding (if applicable). I'm nursing my 19 month old DD. Nipple soreness seems to be subsiding and I've had no breast tissue soreness this time around.

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet? No.

Mood? Are in your usual mood? Oh no... much more "hate."

Energy level? How tired are you? No where near as tired as first go around. I crash without warning though and can hardly stay awake.

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing? transitional. I pulled out a mat skirt this week.... ooooo so comfy!!

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy? All of it. I loved being pregnant with my first. I'll be glad to hit the point where "everyone knows."

Appt's when's your next appt? July 7th

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc? monthly

Anything else you want to add? Saw the heartbeat at 8weeks 3 days-- high 170's
post #33 of 41
How far are you along today?8weeks 2days

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? (You don't have to share what you think it is, if you don't want too.)I think it's a girl

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better?I have it and it SUCKS! I didn't have it with 1st pregnancy so it has really gotten me down!

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? (Don't need to share if you don't want too.)yes, but I am looking forward to the 2nd trimester!

Cravings? Aversions? What are they?Cravings: Mexican food, salsa, refrieds, etc. Aversions: anything that I have to cook!

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet?not yet

Mood? Are in your usual mood?definitely more grumpy and weepy in the very early weeks. Things seem to be mellowing out now.

Energy level? How tired are you?oh, so tired! I could take two naps and day and still need another.

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing?a few of my regular clothes have gotten too tight already, living in my comfortable clothes now.

Appt's when's your next appt?July 10

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc? weekly

Anything else you want to add?thanks for starting the thread, this was fun!
post #34 of 41
How far are you along today? 9 weeks, give or take a day

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? (You don't have to share what you think it is, if you don't want too.) I suspect it might be a girl bc I conceived early in the cycle, as I did with other 2 dds. I also want another girl, so some wishful thinking is undoubtedly mixed in.

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better? Just now starting to get a bit more sensitive food-wise. Have written more about it in the "Confessions" thread.

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? (Don't need to share if you don't want too.) It's OK, could be better. We're both stressed (DH with work, me with hormonal insanity) so are cutting each other some slack.

Cravings? Aversions? What are they? Starting to get sort of turned off by broccoli, chicken with bone, random stuff. Not so much craving anything, but finding that citrus-y things really make me feel better. Current citrus fave: Edy's lime whole-fruit bars.

Boobs and breastfeeding? Are your boobs sore, how are you dealing with breastfeeding (if applicable). Were kind of sore, it's tapered off in the last couple of weeks. Not currently bf'ing, but it seems like it would be very uncomfortable and I don't know that I'd want to bf while pregnant.


Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet? Not much, although I had WICKED heartburn the first 2 times. In fact it was the first sign I had.

Mood? Are in your usual mood? Bitchy, cranky, impatient, Squidward-esque ("Everyone's an idiot except me" kind of thing), very blunt and tactless. None of those things are exactly new, but they're pretty subtle and well-hidden when I'm not PG and on meds. Now they're all turned up full blast.

Energy level? How tired are you? Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Although if I'm not asleep early in the evening (which never happens) I catch a "second wind" and have trouble getting to sleep. That's why I'm here now, in fact!


Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing? Oh dear lord, don't talk to me about clothes. Everything looks weird/wrong, I feel like I'm being chopped in half if I sit down in most of my pants unless they're unbuttoned/unzipped but am too small for regular maternity pants yet. I'm going to make myself a few tents, or just never leave the house. Not sure which yet.

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy? Having another child and my family feeling a little less "incomplete" than it currently does. Watching my dd become a big sister and seeing how she grows and blossoms.

Appt's when's your next appt? I have a 3-hr GTT on Tuesday, and then another regular appt on Monday the 26th. I'll be going in rather frequently due to age (41) and health (probably GD).

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc? Monthly for now, maybe weekly after we all hit 6 or 7 months?


Anything else you want to add? Bleah, I feel pregnant, queasy and lethargic. I feel like Jabba the Hutt looks.

I thought this would be fun... I have seen similar ones on other ddc's...

How far are you along today?

8 wks 3 days

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? (You don't have to share what you think it is, if you don't want too.)

Everyone thinks its a girl...But I think Boy


Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better?


Its the strangest thing....I get really quizzy when I havent eaten in a while


Sex life? Do you have one at this point? (Don't need to share if you don't want too.)

Nope...Thank Goodness my Husband seems so responsible to take care of me : that he doesnt even ask!

Cravings? Aversions? What are they?

Meals...Heavy, fattening southern food! Meatloaf, Speghetti, Mashed Potatoes, etc. Aversions...not wanting sweets right now..so wierd for me!

Boobs and breastfeeding? Are your boobs sore, how are you dealing with breastfeeding (if applicable).

Not BFing but my Boobs are killing me. I am very excited to say they have gotten much bigger

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet?

Yes! Heartburn bad. Isnt that wierd to have it already?

Mood? Are in your usual mood?

I am chilled out majorly. Laid back. Not freaking over the house being perfect like I usually do or anything. Weird.

Energy level? How tired are you?

I could sleep all Day and Night! and if I am off work I do. My husband insists on it. I work 12 hour night shift which is killing me right now. We work 3-4 in a row. Its very very hard on me so when I am off I sleep the whole time.

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing?

Thank goodness you ask this question. I feel huge! All I do is sleep and eat and my regular clothes are tight. I am wearing comfy clothes for now. I dont own maternity clothes. Should I start shopping?

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy?

Seeing my baby. Going through this expericence with my husband. I love him so much and I cant wait to share this miracle with him. The thought of our love forming a human life is amazing to me.

Appt's when's your next appt?

Friday...

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc?

Every couple of weeks would be good. We could tell everyone how our symptoms have changed or what is added to the list of maternity bliss

So regarding the sex thing...

Last night my sweetie asked me if I wanted to have sex. I just looked at him like, "Are you f-ing serious?" Then he asked, "So, when you get preg, do you, like, never want to have sex again?" I assured him that most women are too exhausted to even think about it during the 1st tri, but that by the 2nd, I'm supposed to want it all the time. Since we're only 3 weeks from the 2nd, he perked up a bit

And then there are freaksh women like me that want it a LOT! But my DH and I haven't been home together at the same time awake with the kids ASLEEP in weeks. :

Great idea!

How far are you along today? 11 weeks, 6 days.

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? (You don't have to share what you think it is, if you don't want too.) I'm not sure...I think other people's constant predictions are interfering. I can say that this pregnancy has been somewhat different than the last so far, so maybe a girl this time?

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better? I did have it. It seems to have abated for the most part. I never had it all last time.

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? (Don't need to share if you don't want too.) Well, my DH has been traveling a ton for work, so it hasn't been possible, but now that the sickness has gotten better, I'm planning on getting back in the saddle soon!!!

Cravings? Aversions? What are they? Craving apples and peanut butter. Aversions...nearly everything else. I am having a hard time eating.

Boobs and breastfeeding? Are your boobs sore, how are you dealing with breastfeeding (if applicable). Boobies are sore, but I am not bfing.

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet? Terrible. From the beginning.

Mood? Are in your usual mood? A little weepy at times, but nothing horrid.

Energy level? How tired are you? Still very low...I'm exhausted. But of course I am chasing a toddler too!

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing? Mostly maternity clothes!

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy? Really everything. This is probably my last so I am trying to savor it.

Appt's when's your next appt? I'm on vacation, visiting with my parents, but I am having a nuchal translucency test tomorrow (it was a pain to try and schedule, but there is only a two week window in which you can perform the test, and I will be here the whole time!) I see my regular doc again on July 14.

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc? Weekly! Why not?

Anything else you want to add?[/QUOTE]

How far are you along today? 8ish weeks

Do you have any intution about the baby's sex? (You don't have to share what you think it is, if you don't want too.) girl, but I though that last time too.

Morning sickness? Do you have it is it getting better? Queasy a lot, but if I eat healthy and sleep well I'm ok.

Sex life? Do you have one at this point? (Don't need to share if you don't want too.) DH has sex during pregnancy issues. I have jumped him a couple of times, but he won't initiate.

Cravings? Aversions? What are they? Aversions: chicken, cooking meat, onions, otherwise it chances. Cravings: Lays potato chips, Kraft Dinner (mac and cheese), varries otherwise.

Boobs and breastfeeding? Are your boobs sore, how are you dealing with breastfeeding (if applicable). Sore nips, sore when milk comes in. Still bf-ing, but trying to cut back becuase it hurts when he latches on and he loves to switch boobs every 5 mins for 30 min - an hour, 5 - 6 times a day.:

Heartburn/reflux Has anyone gotten these yet? Nope.

Mood? Are in your usual mood? Impatient, overwhelmed, feel like my neurotransmitters have turned to mollases (ie- stupid)

Energy level? How tired are you? Tired, but also unable to sleep most nights

Clothes? Are you in mat clothes, regular clothes or transitional clothing? Transition clothes -- I lost 25 lbs before ds, then had to loose it again after ds, so I have LOTS of transition clothes.

What are you looking forward too with this pregnancy? Telling people, feeling the baby move, ds's reaction when we explain there's a baby in mom's tummy (waiting until high miscarriage danger has passed -- he's very sensitive), meeting baby #2

Appt's when's your next appt? July 19th

Do you think we should do monthly or weekly updates on this ddc? Monthly until around 20 weeks when things pick up a bit.
