Here, here!! I had a workshop that I *just* entered the order for, from Tuesday! Talk about unmotivated - I typically get those entered right away, as I love doing it! We were at our home group last night for a baby shower for friends, and I barely moved after finding a comfy place to sit. Doesn't help that my regular jeans are getting tight! I'm on the lookout for comfier pants now... suddenly those "transition" pants don't seem like such an absurd idea!

I've been nauseous for 2 weeks now. It was my first symptom--I was pretty sure I was preggo before my BFP because this feeling was eerily familiar to my first pg. I'm also super tired and pee all the time. No boob growth here...darn!

Welcome to all the new mamas who have joined us!! I'm so glad this discussion is so active this early on.

I had my first OB consult yesterday. It was basically a little hand-holding session. I didn't expect that anything would come of it, but DH seems to believe that medical professionals should be consulted and/or that they can "do" something this early.

OB is basically very happy with my beta HCG (posted earlier: 749, then 5,127 4 days later), and he didn't see the need to do a third draw. I go back in a month for my first ultrasound (~8-9 weeks). I will be closely monitored due to lupus, but I don't want an ultrasound at this point.

I have very few symptoms: big boobs, likely due to the progesterone I'm taking, and perhaps I was nauseated last night and this am. However, I had a pretty bad day at work yesterday, which resulted in a very emotional evening. (cried myself to sleep - haven't done that in years) So, my upset stomach could have been emotional. Basically, my career is going to h#ll. Another reason we're keeping this under wraps at the moment.

I'll be gone for the weekend and most of next week. I bet by the time I return, there will be a lot more women who have joined us.

I lost 15 lbs last year and was about to throw away all my "fat" pants when my mom stopped me and said..."You should keep those for when you get pregnant". THANKS MOM!!! I'm so glad I don't have to squeeze into my skinny pants.

ok, all you ladies still nursing...anyone else's boobs ON FIRE? i can't believe the unbearable pain i've been in for the last day or two...i can't believe how conflicted i'm feeling about nursing...it's making me so sad to think our nursing relationship might not actually last much longer

I am new on here so I hope that it is ok to "jump" right in. I have been lurking but I'd like to be part of the oct due dates. Mine is 1 oct and I went exactly 9 days early with both my kidlets so I am probably more of a sept edd but I don't wanna push it. Is there a dictionary online of all these acronyms? I have managed to figure some out but I am not getting all of them.
I (sadly) just weaned my ds (4 y/o) but my boobs hurts so much! I full term bf'd with dd(10 y/o) and always though ds would stop when he was done. I have had a ton of cramping this go round (6th preg) but no signs of miscarriage Although I was reading about someone else bleeding. I bleed (red and clotty) with ds pregnancy for the first 4 months and still got a healthy baby. My m/w thinks he was a twin, so does he. We are all real excited and planning another homebirth.

Hi everyone! We just found out we are expecting and are hoping to go to the Farm on Friday to start prenatal care, we should hear back from them Monday. I am nursing my 2 year old and haven't really had any symptoms yet other than the missed period. We are VERY excited but I think DH is sick of hearing talk about the pregnancy already and I'm kinda sick of talking about it. I just can't help it LOL.
post #129 of 287
ok Stacey, you're scaring me! I will be OK if DS decides he's done during this pregnancy (but he's older than your guy), but he doesn't seem like the type of guy to do that easily. so the prospect of pain doesn't sound good!

Welcome faithvoid, sticky vibes for you! And welcome hippiemommie, talk all you want here, we won't get sick of it

My baby is one month older than yours and still nursing so I'm just waiting for the pain to hit.

My toddler is 2.5 and still nurses regularly. Every now and then, it's sore when she nurses, but my supply hasn't dropped yet, so it's not bad. Although, last night she woke up at about 5 and nursed for an hour. It's not at all unusual for her to wake in the middle of the night to nurse, but usually she just fills up and falls asleep -- doesn't take longer than 15 mins. Even switching to the other breast didn't help. It was especially frustrating because I had woken at three, and stayed in bed until about 15 mins before she woke up, and decided I would get up and get some food because I was starving and obviously not getting back to sleep. I had taken 2 bites of my english muffin when she woke up -- and I was still starving!

I had more nausea and heartburn yesterday and this morning. I find that getting up and doing stuff, especially like picking up toys where there is lots of bending down and getting up, makes both worse. And today I have to take D to his swimming lesson; dh usually does it, but he's out at a seminar thing until this afternoon. I'm not looking forward to keeping S and M happy there in the heat and chorine-y smell while I feel like this.

Forgot to say -- Thanks! -- when I first read this.

Suddenly... so... tired... can't.... keep... eyes... open...

Seriously, I'm about to leave for work at the Y for a few hours and I'm already dreaming of returning home and putting on pj's again and laying on the couch. Or in my bed, if I can swing a nap after work.

I wish my 4yo twins still napped.

Name: Rebecca
Relationship status: married to DH for 2 1/2 years
Children/Pregnancies: This is #2 - I have a 2 yo DD
Due date: Oct 25-ish
Birth plans: Not sure yet, we're moving to San Diego and dh is in the military, so we have to see what they'll allow. I would really love a birth at an alternative birth center with a midwife and doula, but I don't know if the military will pay for that.

I was going to store my fat jeans too, because I lost 10 lbs since January 9, but pretty soon I'm going to have to bring them back out.
post #137 of 287
i wish i had some fat jeans to pull out of storage...i'm at my heaviest weight ever right now and live in yoga pants...blech...i'm thinking i should just donate all my old skinny clothes because they will be soooo out of style before they ever fit again. boo hoo!

ok, i take back what i said about my boobs...they feel ok today...lol

they are getting huge, though...before DS was born i wore a C, now i'm busting out of my DD bra! i can't believe its' come to this...specialty sizes!

raingyrl ~ i'd love to hear what you have in mind for an outdoors birth! it's a little too chilly in October to think about that up here! lol
post #138 of 287
I still don't understand all the abbrev...

I did 2 POA that were both positive! Yeh!!!!!!! This is going to be our second baby.

Me- Hayley
DH- Jay, married almost 3 years
DD- Nyamae, 16 mo
Due date- Oct. 12 (Nyamae's due date was Oct. 26, born on Sept. 20)
Birth Plan- We are planning a home birth, especially after Nyamae's unplanned hospital birth. We have just moved back to Ohio, so we have some homework to do with regard to finding a midwife.
My concern- Nyamae was early, healthly as can be, but early so I am technically "high risk". I am nervous about finding support for a homebirth and I resent the negative expectations regarding "prematurity".

So, do you do crunches?
post #139 of 287
New Mamas!! So glad you're here! What a great place!! Hmm..wow I get emotional so easily.
post #140 of 287
I feel totally screwed on maternity clothes though - I had dd in February in Green Bay, this pregnancy is due in October and I'll be in San Diego, lol. I guess it's a good thing I didn't spend too much on maternity clothes last time (maybe $100-$150 total.) I picked up some maternity clothes on freecycle, and I'm thinking once we get to San Diego, I'll ask for some on their freecycle. Can't beat free maternity clothes
