Thanks Lizzy for the chat thread! Just wondering if we could try and get the July Roll Call thread as a sticky? Does anyone know how to do it?

It keeps dissapearing and I think it would make it easier for all of us to know who all here.

Just a thought.......

We can either wait for a Mod to read this, or one of us can PM her to ask... I think.

wow- how exciting that you saw the heartbeat! Yay!

What are you studying?

Not so much to report here. I still feel pretty good. We have been away from home since I found out (I will be 6w tomorrow). I have been at my in-laws since Sunday and I am soooo ready to go home.

I can't imagine trying to do homework with the way my brain is working right now. I'm so foggy and dopey. I keep losing my phone and car keys.

I went shopping for some maternity clothes last night, yeah, already. This is my third time and I had some tummy coming into this. I swear my body just popped right out. And, I don't like to have anything put pressure on my tummy. So shopping for maternity clothes was kinda like shopping for a swimsuit... I don't fill things out enough to feel cute and pregnant, just kinda flabby and pale. Stuff was either too big or too small and I couldn't decide if I should buy clothes that looks good now, or wait till I'm much bigger. I ended up being there too long and got really tired and hungry and almost threw up while driving home. However after I got home and ate some meat glop I found I had some really great clothes in my shopping bag, and I was excited to slip into some great new maternity pants today. Horray for Old Navy!

I actully did the same thing. I am almost emarassed about it. But I cannot even button my jeans, or if I do, I have to pull them down below my tummy. They are just so much more comfy!!!!!!!! I am only 5wks with my 2nd. This shouldn't be happening right??? I am so blotated it is not even funny. One of the teachers that I work with asked me if I was pregnant. I asked her if I looked pregnant and she said kinda!!! : I was hoping to hide it until after christmas break. Looks like that is a lost cause.

My Mom and Dad think I am having twins. I had a dream about it and they said it is very possible. I go to the doctor on Tuesday for an u/s so we will see.

I want to go shopping for maternity clothes, too, but I know that it is too soon. I looked so dumpy during my last pregnancy... I want to look cute this time around! DH's cousin is trying to get pregnant, and I know I'll have to go to these family gatherings and stand next to her while she is sporting $250 size 0 designer maternity jeans. I shouldn't care, but I do. I always feel like a fat, fashion-challenged cow next to her. Pregnancy will only make it worse. Strangely enough, IRL, I am actually of normal weight and dress decently. SHe, in particular, makes me feel insecure.

I have one of those 30% coupons for Gap/Old Navy next week, so I want to take advantage of that and buy some jeans. I can plan for the belly... I just wish I knew how much my thighs are going to inflate!

Anna -- I am so foggy right now too. My friend asked me to make a quilt that she is going to buy for a present for a co-worker, and do you think I can do basic measurments for it, or make something that looks decent? I'm going to have to rip the top apart for a third time, and I should really be done it by now!

I pulled all my size 12 pants out of the basement this morning with a giant sigh. It takes me so long to lose my pregnancy weight that I actually keep three sizes of clothes in the house plus my maternity clothes. Seriously, who pushed the "look pregnant" button this morning? Of course it had to be today because I have to go to a pancake breakfast at our church (I'm the minister's wife) and all the old ladies will be there. Oh well, it'll give them something to talk about for a couple of months, anyway.

Lizzy Q -- thats awesome that you got to hear a heartbeat already!

My dr is so busy right now (we have a bit of a doctor shortage around here and another doc is leaving town this month -- one of the downsides of public health care) that I can't even get in for an appointment until Dec. 11! I'll be almost through my first trimester before I even get to see him. But he's so awesome that its worth the wait. And this is my third time around, so I'm not too anxious, fortunately.

Where did you get a 30% off coupon?
post #14 of 153
Kohls is having a great sale until noon today, and Mervyns is going out of business. I will be heading down there to look for some new pants! I was already between sizes before this pregnancy, and so over half my pants barely fit as it is, I'm pretty sure I have no hope in delaying the maternity pants too long. Well, thank God for day after Thanksgiving sales!!

Does Mervyns have maternity? I never shop there, so I don't know. Kohls is too far away from where I live, so I probably won't make it there.

ETA: I kept some of my favorite maternity clothes from last time, but I have nothing maternity to wear to work!

For the past year I have always LOVED targets Maternity clothing. I an't wait to go shopping there. I have never checked out Old Navy, so that will be fun!!

DH and I have always wanted to tell our family w/ their Christmas presents. So I don't want to be showing until after the holidays. Is this wishful thinking? I'll be 10 weeks at Christmas, so I think as long as I kep eating healthy I should be able to pull this off, right?

Anywho, that means no maternity clothes until then....

I got some target maternity last time I needed them, and I wasn't impressed. Old Navy maternity clothes are so much more comfortable.

If this is your first, I think at 10 weeks you wouldn't be showing too much. But it differs from person to person. I was about 20 weeks during Xmas, and I was BARELY showing.

However, I think I will be showing this time, because this is #2, and I already have a pooch.

Hi Everyone. I'm very curious about that coupon for Old Navy. I pulled out my big bag of maternity clothes last night. It was very disappointing.
Right now I'm still fitting into my regular clothes. I'm only about 6 weeks and 2 days but every day I'm crossing my fingers. It's #3 for me, with #2 I feel like I was showing at 4 weeks!
I don't think I even knew Target had maternity clothes! I'm going to check out some stuff next week I think.

So how many of us are on #3 or more? I'm curious to know when everyone starts showing.
post #19 of 153
I'm on #3 and by the end of the day, my stomach is bloated out. With dd2 I switched over to maternity pants around 10 weeks and I didn't know I was pregnant until I was a little over 8 weeks so it felt like it was right away. I figure at this point I am about 5 weeks along and hoping to fit into my pants for the next month. I still fit into my regular pants and I lucked out that those babydoll shirts are in style right now that make everyone look pregnant anyway. I have a ton of super long ones that will get me through the winter, but I've never been hugely pregnant during the summer so I will need to buy shorts and tees come spring.
