Thanks! I'm pretty excited that it's over!

Went to my first appointment today with my midwife. It went really great. I really like her but found out that there is a possibility that I might not be able to go through a midwife at all.

My husband and his father both had pyloric stenosis (the valve connecting the stomach and small intestines doesn't function properly) when they were born. It's hereditary in boys and if we have a boy he will most likely have it. This would probably make me a high-risk pregnancy. I have to go for genetic counseling and would need a doc instead of a midwife. Isn't as hands-off as I would have hoped. Kind of disappointed, but a healthy me and baby is most important.

Anyone else have this or know anyone that has dealt with it? Any advice would be great!

Have my first "real" appointment on 6/22 - excited!

I have been very lucky with little to no morning sickness, which is a huge difference from when I was pregnant with my little guy. However, the ms has been replaced with cramping, sore boobs and complete exhaustion.

Also, does anyone else feel like their belly is already growing? I know mine has has, .5 inch in a week! Seems like alot for just 7 weeks.

I have my first dr.'s appt. June 11, with a new dr. I liked my old one well enough, but I don't like his office and staff or their professionalism... just didn't feel comfortable, seemed more like a cattle call.: So, we'll see how this one goes, I hope he's very non-invasive and I feel comfortable with him and his office.

ugh morning sickness has arrived well more of morning nausea and I gag at anything that smells bad...it seems to be getting worse though as the days go by..6 weeks and 6 days here I had no morning sickness with my first which was a boy and then with my second which was a girl I had the wonderful M/S. Nothing really helps it but it does start to fade by noon time....

I am feeling pretty good again today! Don't know what is making the PG so easy, but I'm not about to complain. I do feel kinds sick, but no throwing up Guess what I got in the mail today? A bunch of BumGenius 2.0 XS AIOs!!! ANd let me tell you they are adorable!!! THey look really comfy, and I think they will fit great on a newborn. I got a good deal on them from another mama, b/c she didn't wnat to get the stains out. I am going to try a few things this afternoon to get them out. I got 18 of them for $120!!! I cannot even buy the materials and make an AIO for htat (yes, I do sew and make pockets, costs about $3 for the materials, then I get CPFs for the inserts at about $2 each). I also ordered some orange edge prefolds for myself and my CDing friend due in July this morning as her shower gift from me and a few other CDing gals. There are 4 of us now that CD, and we all share a snap press, and make our own dipes It's so much fun! I just know I am going to have too much to do to make up 20 newborn dipes. I do plan to make some embroidered smalls when I find out the gender, though! I still have some yellow PUL w/ the cute Princess embroidery on it that I never used w/ Laina. Maybe I'll get to use it this tmie (or maybe not, thinking boy vibes!!!). Anyway, I guess I am almost done diaper shopping and I am only 7 weeks! :crazy I still have a bunch of stuff on my list, though, and most of it has to wait until I know the gender!

WE told our news and it got mixed reviews. My family were all excited and congratulated us. DH's family not so much. MIL just said "I thought you were building a house" followed by "I'm sorry I'm not acting more excited. I think I'm just in shock" FIL was MUCH worse. He told DH one of us needed to get fixed... Ummm.... we plan on 4 kids and this is only #3!!!! At least DH is standing up for us and telling them we are happy about it. I know mIL will come around in a couple of weeks, and FIL, well, you just have to know him. Iknow he loves my kids, but he isn't one to really show it. I am trying not to be hard on them, b/c ths WAS a complete suprise, for all of us. And I KNOW we are building a house next year (supposed to start in February) and I know it will be harder w/ an infant, but we can still do it! (and we will need to b/c we are out of room in this house!). Oh, well.

Okay, so this is *kind* of comical to me. Every book I read says that most morning sickness starts around six weeks, when your hormones peak. This morning is six weeks and wouldn't you know, I woke up feel a bit on the queasy side. Ew.

I haven't read the whole thread so I don't know if anyone else has already burst you bubble, but... ummm... People who are going to bug you near the end feel no obligation to wait until your due date. If I were you I'd say you wanted to be the first surrogate birthing a "love child" for Valentines Day. If you say a number date in February most folks will forget it, remember February, and start bugging you once they flip their calendars. If you say the beginning of February, the "buggers" can start in the end of January (cuz half of all babies will be born before average, doncha know?) Valentines Day is a much more fixed and memorable date. JMO

Ugh. Woke up this morning, and the m/s was back with a vengeance. It was all I could do to get the kids' breakfast ready.

Luckily, it was getting better by 10 am - my mil and sil come over every Friday morning to play with the kids (and let me get things done), and this was my morning to bake dd's birthday cake! (She wants a duck - I've got quite a cute thing planned - I'll post pictures if it turns out) The cake's in the oven right now. But 2 days of brutal tiredness and one morning of blecch equals a very messy kitchen, which I have to go and tackle now. Ugh.

I was 9 weeks yesterday - only 4 to go (I hope).

I'm baking a cake today too (well baked now it just needs to be frosted)! Today is my DH's birthday. Luckily the tummy is feeling alright on my end. Just a good bit of the same low level nausea I've had since it all started. Kitchen is still a mess though and I don't have any excuses.

DS#1 was the one who told everyone as well. Including dh. Needless to say I was a little shocked when I took the test and he was standing right there.

My first appt is that day as well, with a new ob too!! But its a woman this time, I'd done the man ob with the first two. Hopefully she is good.

One more comment- since this is our weekly thread . . . today is the first day of Hurricane Season!! And here I sit in Orlando, with a possible tropical storm going overhead tonight. So wild! Anyone else down here? We do need the rain, but I could do without possible 45 mph winds!

Hello Everyone. I'm Melanie and this is my first pregnancy. I don't know why I was so prideful in thinking pre-pregnancy that I wouldn't have all these symptoms, but I'm definitely more forgetful or "spacey", amotivated, struggling with my normal runs, CONSTIPATED ! (I've never been constipated in my life !! And I definitely eat LOTS of veggies so I don't get it), plus my boobs are hurting so badly, and my husband keeps complaining I toss and turn frequently at night. I wake up CONSTANTLY ! (not usual me)

also I'm breaking out oh so gloriously and I shouldn't be complaining but I've outgrown my bra already! And I definitely have some sort of "belly" going on (this is different from when I've gained a little bit of weight too. I have even lost a couple of pounds but still manage to have this pooch?)

Hooray haha

no morning sickness persay just aversion to my usual cravings for a glass of wine at night with dinner and coffee in the morning (I don't even care for decaf). And certain smells REPULSE ME (cigarettes or any type of fumes I swear it's not the knowledge of me being pregnant just I feel I'm gonna retch whenever they hit me)

my EDD is 1/28/08. Seems a lot of us are then

I'm trying not to be negative and just enjoy this pregnancy but I'm SO FATIGUED ! I tried giving a presentation this morning to a roomful of people who obviously don't know I'm pregnant and just couldn't help feeling how much of a ditz I wa

Hi ladies!! I'm tired today.. went on a field trip with Madison's 1st grade class.. so we went to a Farm which was super cool. they had people dressed as characters Mother Goose, mother hubbard etc reading stories and telling stories about the animals. We had lunch and then went to Riverfront park and played for a bit.. plus it is SUPER HOT today 94* tha's 20* warmer than usual this time of year so we had to stop and get popsicles.. I ran into 2 women who were due anytime in the next 2wks.. lol.. and they were talking about MW and such.. so I earsdropped to listen who they go to..

then came home and was catching up when Aidan walks up to me and I see what I think is chocolate... let's just say IT WASN'T CHOCOLATE...: it came from his diaper and he had it all over his body and hands... ewwwwwww so off to bathland we went.. I gagged the whole way there.. that never happens to me!!! UGH..
