CONGRATULATIONS!!! This is great news.. I'm so happy for you!! Hope your ill feelings get better soon, but this is soooo AWESOME!! yeay:
Really you have names picked out?! That's soo cool.. gear and all too eh, nice! So happy for you both, it's so wonderful!! How soon will you be sharing the great news? Are you thinking of a BIG announcement over Thanksgiving dinner type thing or can't wait~ you'll be calling everyone you know?
Ann~ I hope you get better soon, you know, you're next right?!! Just think, you'll soon get over your cold and get pg just to go back to the little illness symtoms, how exciting!!! Wishing you a speedy recovery!!
How's everyone else doing?
Sorry, I've been MIA, DH had a softball tournament in Vegas, we left last Friday and we just got back. First time in Vegas PG~ very dif. experience. We had a good time, but I was home sick.. I couldn't believe it, it's our yearly get-a-way weekend with a bunch of friends, this year it was all family style (last year was just couples) -- so it was another reminder that we're not dreaming that we're really PG! At Vegas we told all other friends that we hadn't seen from last weeks news, I'm still in disbelief ~~ EVERYONE was thrilled for us. DH was great, eventhough he was enjoying his game time, he always kept an eye on me and making sure I was all taken care of.. I'm SOOO Lovin' his attn right now~~ he's great! One of my best friends gave us some books, needed them and she picked one specially for DH, he's a reader and it helps him to not worry about every little thing. So far so good. My Dr. apt. is next week, Monday ~ I'll keep you guys updated. Oh yeah, no nausea for me! I'm loving it!! Since we just got back, I haven't really had a chance to hit the stores, can't wait to go looking-shopping. I don't know where to start, so much to do and only a short time to do it all in
We need to move our office down stairs so that we can clean up, paint and ready baby's room.. have not started looking for furniture yet, next on the list. Need EVERYTHING!! We're considering taking a birthing class, I think it would be cool to do, not too sure yet though. Has anyone found a PG count down cheat sheet? If so, send me a copy! I'll be : for you all!
Take Care and Best Wishes!!
I'm glad to hear everyone is doing good.
I am pretty lucky to not feel ill (I guess) although sometimes I worry that it's been too easy and worry about things going wrong. Last night I told dh that I felt weird, that so far I'm really the only one I know of not having bad pg symtoms, when is the nausea going to start? the cravings? the frequent urination? I do have to go in the middle of the night, but it's usually only one time even if I drink a whole gallon of water.. I do have occasional backaches and head-aches but not severe. I've been waiting for this event for so long and now that it's here, it's got me all confused. : I guess when my friends all got pg (4 gals) x 2 each at least, all were miserable at one point or another, I just assumed that would be me too. I guess these symptoms would remind me daily that all is ok~ that all is normal. I do end up snapping out of it when dh reminds me that I'm lucky and all is well, to enjoy how nice it is for me. Is it normal to worry like this sometimes? That was my worry last night, today I'm more assured again. Devilish- are you having similar doubts? Anyone else knew of someone ok w/no symptoms?
I think after my u/s on Monday, I'll feel much better~ I'm so looking forward to Thanksgiving next week, family will be together and we may be able to have more news for all, hope they're able to tell us if single or multiples.. although I'm trying to convince dh that if they tell us multiples that we don't tell family until almost the end (before shower though) 'cause if it's multiples we'll need more than what we're planning for.
Thanks all for listening~ I don't like telling dh when I'm doubtfull of things, I don't like him to be concerned too much, it's nice to be able to put my worries out there with you all, and not keep them in my head!
Have a great day everyone!! Best Wishes!!
~~~ STAYING POSSITIVE AND THINKING BEST THOUGHTS FROM HERE ON OUT!!~~~ --
I had my u/s today and we have 1 baby!! We were able to see our baby's heart-beat, it was awesome!! Talk about a speechless moment.
We had prepared ourselves for the possibility of multiples, just incase so when the Dr. said one, DH asked "are you sure?" I think he was hoping for twins after-all. I'm just glad that all looks good and that things are moving along. Dr. said I'm 6wks 5 days, I thought I was between 4&5 wks. Where did the time go, what did I miss? My due date = 7/11/08 Doc said that this u/s is the first of a set of 3, so I have another one next week Monday and the last one the Monday after next~~ after this we graduate back to my OBGYN.. and the normal pg schedule beggins. They gave us a card with our baby's 1st pic, so cute~~ so amazing! I'm so happy that things are going great and that we're doing good. The reason for the 3 u/s is because wks 7-8&9 are the crucial weeks, if anything's going to change it usually happens during these weeks.. so keep us in your thoughts and prayers, we're almost that hump! Now that it's been confirmed that there's only 1 baby, we can focus on all the other details.. we're so fortunate and we're so happy and full of joy! It's REAL.. not just in our hearts, but REAL - finally! Will definitely keep in touch! Oh yeah, as of last night belly decided to grow, I can't fit in my 6's no more.. I'm in the 8's now and they're ok -- if I have another belly jump soon like last night the 8's will be gone soon too or actually I may be able to use "bella band" with the 6's & 8's!
Ann~ how exciting!! Lupron I think you're supposed to refrigerate it, that's what they told me, takes the itch away too.. with you being so busy and all your days will fly by~~ make sure to take some chill time for yourself whenever possible.
Devilish~ your u/s next week? WOW, that was quick!! Great news! There is so much good stuff going on.. it's so amazing. Any plans on how to hide the nausea during Thanksgiving dinner? TOO cool that you're waiting to tell parents on Christmas~ we couldn't wait, we see them/talk to them at least 1 a week and my Mom is really good at picking up on things/vibes.. there's no way I would've been able to pull it off! The reason why you're not having a drink? = antibiotics, reason for the antibiotics= throat infection. why you're a little nauseated (sp?) throat infection causes you to gag..
I could go on all night, so I won't.. Take Care ALL!!
BEST WISHES TO YOU ALL ~~ HAVE A GREAT HOLIDAY!!
So thrilled... yeah we had geared ourselves up for the possibility of twins and when Dr. confirmed single bean, I could see a bit of sadness in dh eyes, he was so happy/thrilled to see the one heartbeating.. but I could tell he was almost wishing there would be a 2nd.
