12 wks 3 days... phew!!!  I think I was first in line though... it's a relief for sure, although I know there's nothing magical about going from 11 wks 6 days to 12 wks 0 days.  orngbiggrin.gif  It's still nice having the first trimester done, especially since we skipped the u/s for the first time and I'm used to having a heartbeat by now!

Cherish every single day pregnant with your little love. It seems like it takes forever to get your sweet babe but them when you finally get your little miracle you never get the pleasure of being pregnant with that particular child again.

I would give anything to go back just for a day (even the worst day) and be pregnant with each of mine.

For many of us, it isn't a rush to be done with it. Many of us have had losses, and this marks a point where statistically, things are less dicey. I know that is the case with me, at least.

Well put.  And even for those who haven't experienced losses, the possibility is still there and it's so nice to know that more than likely, the baby is staying put for another 6 months!  Personally, I'm in no rush give birth... that will come last trimester I'm sure, lol!  I'm just relieved to be past the high danger zone.

I'm past 12 weeks too, and I'm very relieved to have made it this far. I feel like I can settle in and start preparing now :)


Happily married to my soul mate, and a mommy of two girls + another baby due in June!

I will be 12 weeks on Sunday - so 3 more days!!!  It is like a weight off your shoulders isn't it? I have not had a loss, but I still feel like I am in limbo until that sweet 12 week mark.

5 more days! I'm looking forward to it. It hasn't been easy, but it's actually gone faster than I expected... I'm hoping to get that famed 2nd trimester energy boost soon, so I can actually get stuff done!

Yes, that!  And for me I'm also hoping that at some point very close to the 12 week mark all of this nausea and vomiting will stop!!!

Oh I so hope and pray that the queasy feeling stops! I managed with HG last time, so I know I could manage being queasy, but it makes it difficult to eat what I should be eating. I want to be able to enjoy the fresh eggs we have from our hens, the yummy veggies from the garden while they last, etc.

one week and 1 day to go!  I, too, feel like it's a great milestone and "safety" point.  Although to be honest, i saw the little bean jumping around today during my first tri sono and looked so much like a baby that I am very satisfied now.  it was just beautiful.

I am 12 weeks tomorrow.  It doesn't mean much to me, though--I just started spotting & bleeding this week.  Also, my nausea is not letting up at all.  So, no relief either way (I can't be happy about being safe from loss, and I also can't be happy about feeling better physically)greensad.gif.

I am 12 weeks and 3 days. I just had the nuchal scan yesterday and saw my baby on screen moving for the first time. It was really exciting. For me I am hoping that the nausea will start subsiding soon :), so that I can start enjoying my pregnancy much better. So 12 weeks is quite significant for me too.

All the best to all you ladies out there touching week 12.

I'm 9 weeks.  The nausea has been steadily increasing.  Weeks 9-12 were the worst with my first so while I'm not wishing for this pregnancy to hurry along, I *am* eagerly awaiting the end of the nausea and indigestion.

Crossing my fingers, but the nausea hasn't been around the past few days. I still have an aversion to certain foods, but it is getting better. I was able to eat a burger today without gagging. I've got four more days as of midnight!

Two days left!! I'm savoring every moment of this pregnancy, but when we have our 12 week appt on monday and hear the heartbeat on the doppler I will be happy to say goodbye to my 1st trimester anxiety. We're officially "out" to all of our local friends and family, if all goes well at the appointment out goes the mass email announcement to everyone else!

3 weeks and 4 days to go and I am anxiously awaiting hearing the heartbeat and telling everyone before they start wondering about my rapidly growing belly! I can't get over how much faster I'm popping with #2 than with #1.

I am 10 weeks today, so two more weeks. I have an appointment next Tuesday though so hopefully I'll get some reassurance from my doctor then. I know it may sound silly, but I don't feel pregnant right now. My nausea has stopped and I don't really have any other symptoms. Well, except my boobs. LORDY. I don't even want to think about how big they'll be by March.

I was like that with my son.  I had no symptoms for the entire pregnancy and it actually worried me.  I had a blissfully uneventful pregnancy and a beautiful homebirth.  I felt downright awful for the first 2 months of this one but now feel great since about 9 weeks.  I immediately panicked and went for a sono and everything is fine.  enjoy the no symptoms!!!!

I'm 10 weeks today and my uterus practically doubled overnight!   At least that means I might look pregnant at 12 weeks, I love baby bellies.

Nausea has moved more towards the evening and during meals. yay.   Things do feel a little more real but still haven't heard the heart beat and wont until around 15 weeks.  

The next few weeks and going to be really rough, so maybe when I've made my way through them I can just settle in and enjoy the rest of pregnancy. Baby kicks and bellies and etc.  Please?

Mine are tender, but they aren't growing.  I still fit in my old bras.  Should they be bigger already?
