Hope it's okay if I join in as a new person around here. :) I've been lurking now and then as it's taken me some time to get comfortable with this unexpected pregnancy and feel well enough to spend any of my free time on the computer!
sounds like many of you are feeling better and yay on finding a good midwife!
I am in week 9, my conception date is a little fuzzy but I know I am somewhere in week 9 now. :) My main symptoms have been all the time nausea since somewhere between 5-6 weeks and lately I have been more tired. And I started waking up much earlier in the mornings, having to pee, and not being able to get back to sleep but not wanting to get out of bed either! Hopefully I will go back to my old wonderful sleep schedule for awhile before having to deal with the sleep deprivation of a new baby again, I am feeling waaaay too old to go through that again (I am 36).
we've only told our parents. I am very nervous about telling people at my work (I work as a university librarian) as this will be #3 and that will undoubtedly be viewed as excessive since my job is pretty career-oriented. Sigh. One day at a time! So I'm trying to counterbalance my workplace, with my friends and other communities that are supportive.
Have been holding my jeans together with a rubber band, I ordered a belly band thing and am waiting impatiently for that to arrive! At work it's lots of drapy tops and cardigans.
I have a fantastic homebirth midwife that I worked with in my last pregnancy and am so excited to go back to her. My first appt will be March 14. Due to early bleeding I had an u/s at around 6.5 weeks and saw the heartbeat, I plan to have the big u/s around 20 weeks as well and find out the gender.
Looking forward to getting to know you!
