Patch, that's wonderful! I started doing research a few months ago and found my current midwife/ob practice based on which birthing centers they work with. I also hope to have a waterbirth.

sandra - i was so looking forward to m/s (then i'll really feel pg) but now that it's here i'm like 'oh yeah, i remember this - ugh, hopefully only six more weeks of it'

is there any truth to the rumor that people feel sicker w/ girls than they do with boys b/c of different hormone levels? probably not, huh?

I talked to my homebirth midwife yesterday. Her policy is mom comes in whenever she is ready. I am leaning toward around the beginning of second trimester, or the end of first. I think that will take some of the "will we/won't we" anxiety away from the heartbeat. I would prefer to hear the heartbeat after I feel movement in some ways, but I'm not far enough along to know how I'll feel when the time comes. She just talked about nutrition and trying to eat as much good stuff as I could, and enough calories. And she said to rest rest rest. (Who does this with a 1 year old?!) I try to just lay down when Riley does, hopefully that will work. In any case she and I were on the same page. This pregnancy I am just going to try and stress-less. I'm trying to trust my body, trust my uterus, and trust God. I'm not going to assume the worst, because there is no benefit to that. I spent most of my first tri last time worried sick, and I refuse to do that this time. Whatever happens with this pregnancy, we will deal with as it comes. Until then, I am going to assume everything is normal and healthy, unless I have reason to think otherwise. That feels good. Very liberating. That is how I know that we're going down the right path, with the right midwife, at the right time. I am ready for this.

Today is CD1. So I am starting all over again...hope to get my BFP next month!
So Sorry Mandy :

Hmm, if people feel sicker with girls, then this one MUST be a boy. I keep forgetting that I'm pregnant. Clothing still fits great, I'm eating normally, still running around on my crazy work schedule. Feeling at least a little something would be nice. This is starting to make me nervous.

With my DD my gag reflex was up, but I never actually puked.

So far my gag reflex isn't even bothering me.

i felt sick all three previous pregnancies, and now i'm just at 6 weeks and i'm thinking "oh no! here i go again!" it's just that awful underlying nausea, like i'm trying really hard NOT to feel nauseous, but it's just right there waiting for me to not eat enough protein! yuck. i'm thinking the same thing, violet- only six more weeks, right??!! the last day of my first trimester is my birthday (nov 19th), so it's extra fun to look forward to that day this year!!!

I feel the same way, Patch! My friends keep assuring me it's ok to not feel anything yet, so I'm trying to stay calm.

Becky, I also have friends who are great at telling me to relax. I'm trying hard to stay focused on being lucky to feel so good. That works most of the time, usuallt right up until I'm lying in bed trying to fall asleep. Oh well. MW appointment is in a week and a half, that should help reassure me that everything is ok.

Mataji4- My birthday is November 20th! We'll have to share virtual cake and candles.

It works out well...my birthday, the beginning of the second trimester, and Thanksgicing so we can tell the family all in one fell swoop. If I can make it to "turkey day" I think I'll be able to relax a bit.

And I agree with everyone...although I've got nausea that comes and goes, and a few other "signs", I don't really feel pregnant yet, you know? DH and I have been trying for so long I just can bring myself to believe it's happened!

Oh yeah...so the third largest book sale in the country is taking place right now in my home town (Ithaca Friends of the Library Book Sale)! I'm going to go this afternoon and see what sort of pregnancy books they have...I gave away all my books after dd arrived and I can't wait to fill up the bookshelves with a few more "baby on the way" books. I have Kitzinger's Complete Book of Pregnancy, and Birthing from Within, but they're library copies and I'd love to have my own.

Stay healthy all!

My uncle passed away last night. Hard day around here. In the midst of it, I found out that my cousin (his daughter) is due right around the same time as me. And she hadn't yet told him.

I went to get a pair of pants for the funeral and I ended up buying maternity. I'm far more bloated this time and I was in maternity by 9 weeks with DS. I have a feeling I've only got 2-3 more weeks.
post #92 of 99
FWIW, I didn't get sick until about 6 weeks last time. I think that's a fairly common timeframe because that's when the placenta forms? Or am I mistaken?

I think it is around 8 weeks the placenta begins to take over...although with my first pregnancy I was nasuea until about 16 weeks..not getting sick but feeling like I could!

Heyla mamamin! You have to type the characters into your signature line to create a ticker...

So if you edit your signature, you can type in the correct number of * (****5****10****etc) and pick an icon to use as the place holder. Then just move the icon each week.

Hope that makes sense!

Makes perfect sense. I was starting to think that everyone was doing that. Thanks Clay!!

I'm so sorry for your loss, Shell_Ell. My uncle just died last weekend and we had his memorial service on Saturday. I still haven't told anyone in my family that I'm pregnant. I was thinking about telling my mom, but I was already so emotional at the service that I just couldn't handle anymore tears, even happy ones.

I started feeling very slightly queasy this morning, but I'm not sure if it was hunger or not.
