That's AWESOME news. I know there is a huge allure about twins, but really, you can count your blessings whether you've got them or not.

It's a beautiful Saturday here (in the 70s-80s which is great for Texas). DF and I were planning on getting some new clothes for me since my wardrobe is kinda small but since we were up last night I think we're just going to relax around the house and take a little nap. Tonight we're meeting up with friends and having dinner so that'll be fun. I work tomorrow so I plan on being a complete and total bum today lol. I did start spotting a bit this morning but I'm hoping its nothing to worry about. Its super light and looks like old blood so we'll keep an eye on things. Hope everyone has a good weekend.

I'm not too bad, except I just tried to take my engagement ring off... and it wouldn't budge I'm seriously gassy though.

Happy Thanksgiving! We're off for Turkey tonight, with another one on Monday. We are going to tell our parents this weekend too. I figure it'll be a great time, as we usually go around the table and say what we're thankful for.

Congratulations on hearing the heartbeat : I can't wait for that, although it's going to be a long time yet as we aren't planning an early ultrasound.

So,
Is anyone else losing weight? I'm about 3 to 4 lbs lighter today than I was on Monday when I got my bfp. I'm obviously not trying to lose weight now, I'm eating lots and I'm not to nauseous. Do you think this is a problem? I'm not overweight, but I'm certainly not underweight either, so I can probably spare 10 or so more pounds before it's an issue, but I want to make sure the baby is getting everything s/he needs!

As long as you are eating healthy, the baby will take what it needs before you get what you need!! It isn't uncommon to lose a few pounds as you adjust, as long as you are eating well and eating when you are hungry you should be fine!

Thanks Chely,
I guess I know that, but it's pretty unusual for me to "accidentally" lose weight. It took me about 4 months to lose 10 lbs before this. I wish it had been this easy!
post #27 of 103
These threads are hard for me. Hard for me to keep track of who is who and what's going on with who, so I'll probably do a lot more reading than posting in them. As for me though, I'm pretty much nauseated all day (expected it) and am craving junk foods and I don't enjoy being pregnant much at all.

Alohamelly. Sorry you aren't having a good time. I know what you mean about the threads moving fast. It took me 1/2 an hour to catch up today and I was on MDC way too much yesterday!

AFM - Dh was gone all week on a work trip - i picked him up last night at the airport and of course im working today and tomorrow and then he is going away again on Monday. I'm so sad. It was awesome to see him last night, since i told him i was pregnant while he was away, he came running up to us and kissed my belly!!

What does everyone have planned for monday?! We're (me and DD) are gonna go to a local fair for the day.
I am very close to my brother. He is my best friend. We usually see each other once a week, and talk almost every day. He still does not know about the baby, so that is a little weird. I told him I would tell him right away, but he said that the loss was so hard on him that he would prefer we wait to tell him. We are compromising and telling him after the time we lost our baby, and hopefully that will be a good sign that this baby is .

Right now hubby is out helping a friend air up her tires because her hubby is deployed, then we have errands to run. The dorky dog keeps digging up the dish cord so we are going to get paving stones to cover it.
That sounds annoying and dangerous that your dog keeps digging up your cord. Good luck getting it covered.

How did the cheesecake come out? I have been craving some almond cheesecake.

we have 3 more births for this month and then 4 next month. i don't know how to balance it all with having a little one, a husband and being pg. i feel like i embarked on this about a year or two too soon, but i am managing as best as i can. being on call 24/7 for the whole month is challenging, and i am the only assistant my mw has, so i HAVE to be there no matter what.
Wow, that is a lot of births. Hopefully things will slow down for you soon. I am sure you will figure out a way to balance everything.

So the total haul is 2 pairs of super duper comfy brown cords, 4 tops, and a cami. :
Yay that is great!

I hope I can get out of this funk soon! I don't know why I'm feeling so down!
Probably just hormones.

Have a great night. Most likely the spotting is nothing. I will keep you in my thoughts.

I have not weighed myself, but doubt I am losing weight. It is not a problem at all and very common. Your body will take care of the baby before it will take care of you, so do not worry at all about your baby.

me: We went out to lunch today. I had a yummy pasta with seafood. We stopped off at dh's parent's house after. Ds had fun playing there. We went to the library to get some books for ds, and now we are relaxing at home.

What about the junk food are you craving? Salty or sweet? Can you somehow give into your craving in a healthier way?

Yeah it took me a while to catch up too.

We bought paving stone things to cover the cord and hubby is going to do it in the morning (or so he says... he better!!) I am going to make my cheesecake once the baby is in bed... so I will let you all know how it turns out!!
post #32 of 103
Thanks everyone for the reassurance about cramping. I'm 5 weeks today and feeling much better I'm so glad a friend told me about motheringdotcommune!! It helps so much to have others to chat, share with and get advice from! I was in quite a state yesterday and after reading everyones responses about their cramps too... I chilled right out!
Hope everyone's having a wonderful weekend!!

ps, last night i had a few sips from my husband's wine glass to celebrate the pregnancy. shh! don't tell anyone. my husband and i sort of have a european attitude about that kind of thing.

have a beautiful saturday, everyone.
We must live pretty close, I'm probably 1/2 hour from Yellow Springs. I have an Etsy shop. haven't stocked it in a while though. I've been making tutus and leg warmers that I'm going to put on there.

I hope it's nothing. As long as it's old blood it should be ok.

I haven't weighed myself in a while, but I lost weight in the beginning when I was pregnant with DD. I think it's because I was eating healthier.

Yes, I am as well. I've lost about 4lbs and I'm only 5 weeks today. Ever since my missed miscarriage my body has been gaining weight and refusing to loose any. I have been working out like crazy everyday for the past 6 months and I could not loose a single pound (abnormal for me). I knew it was hormonal and that as soon as I got pregnant the weight would start to come off. Since I got my BFP, I have backed way down on my workouts and I've still lost.

That is interesting because since we lost our baby I put on 10lbs, and could not get rid of it. I definitely was not working out like crazy, but I have never had trouble losing weight with a little working out. I am definitely not losing any weight now. I am only about 9lbs from what I weighed the day I gave birth to ds. It will all even out eventually. All that nursing postpartum always does the trick.
post #39 of 103
I've lost about 5 pounds too - but i also have plenty to spare! I think ive just been trying to eat healthier, and i am actully just starting to get a little twinge of nausea.
post #40 of 103
Nausea's hitting me too. I seem to have more evening sickness than morning sickness, but at least I've started wearing my hair in braids all the time (it goes past my waist) in case I do barf.
