Jennifer... take that nap! At least the exhaustion doesn't last too long.

Mrs. Mama I love that dress. I'm a maid of honor (matron of honor?) in my best friend's wedding that is August 31, so I'll be 7 months pg. She wants us all in black, so I'm thinking some kind of wrap dress... that's the only style I can think of that would look OK at 7 mo. pg!

Mrs mama, beautiful dress! We have a film premiere to attend next month and ugh I have no idea what to wear... my boobs wouldn't fit in something like that, I'm sure

Jennifer, great numbers

I think I'm coming down with something ::

I'm finally officially "late" today - another milestone that makes the pregnancy feel more real. Yay!

I am so upset.

I am a Girl Scout leader, and I have two co-leaders. I told both of them that I was pg, because we are starting to plan things for next year, and if I'm pregnant or have a newborn, it influences some things.

Well, one of them - I don't know which - told another mom in the troop, who then mentioned it to me today, in front of her kids... so now two of the girls in my troop know, but my own kids? No, they don't. And I totally didn't WANT to tell anyone else in the troop, much less the girls in the troop, for quite awhile. I guess I wasn't explicit enough in asking not to share the news, but I'm still upset about being gossip, and about these girls knowing before my own kids...

Ughh....WOMEN IN GROUPS!!

I know how you feel mama, BTDT! Regardless if its a mama group or a GS troop, women in groups tend to gossip more than they would if it were just one on one.
Well, I would definitely tell your kiddos soon, as the other kids might tell them


Take care and don't let their need for drama get you down!

Got my second beta back

My first was done on 2/29 (5w) and was 1400+. The second was done 5w6d and was 11,000+, so doubling almost exactly every 2 days. I seriously let out the biggest sigh of relief on the phone with my MW. I was so terribly worried, especially since it took so long to get the results. I'll have an early u/s next week to check growth and we'll go from there. Fingers crossed that everything looks good!

I am officially experiencing m/s this time around. Mornings are bad and so are afternoons. It's hard to find a time to take my prenatal and DHA, I just feel so yucky most of the time. I'm going to try to eat a little something in a bit, it's not as bad as it was earlier. Thank goodness I haven't thrown up... yet. I guess I should watch what I wish for...

so I have this sil who was less than excited for us with #4 I think her words exactly were "how did that happen" my reply "the good old fashioned way" duh, anyway she is the closest family member in regards to distance that dh has, he's not telling her yet and I don't want to be the one to tell her period. I think she will find out this coming weekend though cause our kids know and they can't keep it shut, and we are having a family thingy sooooo we'll see what goes down. I really don't want to be a doormat to her negativity and at the same time I have had a very hard time not letting what she thinks bother me. any thoughts?!

Nurnur-Maybe just go with the approach of letting everyone know how excited you are for the new addition? The happier you are, I think the less likely people are going to give you grief. Although people always have their opinions, don't they?

So we ended up telling MIL a couple days after bfp and I was so worried b/c she is so superstitious and thinks she knows everything about living a healthy life, etc. She's known for a week and a half now and besides the initial talk I had with her she hasn't brought it up to me or DH at all. Even when she spoke with my Mom over the phone that day I asked my Mom what MIL said and she said "Oh, just that she had lost so much weight, but she's gained some back now". A little back story here: FIL passed away a year ago from the day that my DH told his family I was pregnant. We thought it would be a happy thing, but now I'm second guessing the timing. MIL just called DH yesterday b/c she wanted to book a 3 week trip to Prague. She has very little money for retirement and DH spoke with her about this last summer b/c while we won't have her on the street, when we have children of our own we don't want to have to choose between supporting our children or MIL. I think the reality of us having a baby hit her now and I don't know how we should handle this.

Wow, that was a very long paragraph!

Patchfire! That is pretty crummy that people can't keep their mouth shut! We haven't told anyone yet for that precise reason. I know that as soon as I tell one person, everyone will know.
I"m 5 weeks, too, and we want to tell our families first. It still doesn't seem real to me!
I guess I need a little reassurance - this is my first pregnancy and I don't feel ANY different.: I missed my period and have had several positive tests, but I can't physically tell that I'm pg I feel a little tired, and I've had some spotting over the last week, and I have tender breasts. Is that all there is?? I don't want to feel sick or anything, but it scares me that I don't feel anything...any advice?

Totally normal. Everyone's body is different and every baby is different. I had no symptoms with DD#1, only fatigue and nausea with DD#2. This baby is testing out everything in the book. Maybe it's just that I'm getting older. You're normal though.
