Congratulations Darcytrue and Dmitrizmom!

Mamas
I wanted to let you know that I had my babe on 9/18. I had a quick and uneventful labor. My son was born at home in the water after 3 pushes. His birth was beautiful...and so is he

best of luck to all of you!!!!!

Wow congrats to all the new babes I'm imagining a peaceful, quick birth for me too, so you all are inspiring me!!
Welcome to pumpkincat and congrats on number 5. Are you in the under 40 or over 40 crowd(like me).


I think the tender spot is getting better. I pressed on it the other day and it took my breath away, but today I had a hard time finding a spot that sore, just feels like strained muscles now. I think I'm on the mend.

The insurance adjuster is FINALLY coming to look at my van today and I should find out at the same time if he's going to write it off or not. I'm hoping he doesn't, but I guess I have no control. We just don't need the expense of replacing a vehicle right now. Would be so much better to just repair the one we have, but I know they have their rules too. I'm on pins and needles

Congrats to all the new mommas! Wow, you ladies make me realize that I have a looooong way to go (babe is due April 19th).

I'm 11w1d today, and I have to say that I'm already feeling the exhaustion let up. Second trimester energy spurt, here I come! (I hope!) I already have stuff that I plan to do once I get the energy to do it--like workout. I have been able to cook again, and DH is quite happy about that. I feel terrible for saying it, but so far, this pregnancy has been relatively easy. I'm not taking it for granted, so I hope this doesn't change! It does feel great to be over 35 and having a pleasant pregnancy. Who says being pregnant is a young woman's thang?!

sorin, i'm with you all the way! my mil said to me the other day very sweetly, thank you for sharing your pregnancy with us (we recently moved back, and we waited til 11 weeks to tell). i said, we'll all be sick of it by the time it's over! i was kind of joking, but april does seem a loooooong way away, no? i keep remembering how quickly the last 6 months have passed while my sister has been prego. she's due in december and it's sneaking up FAST!

i also feel really fortunate, and i'm less tired too. just that dang nausea creeping up harder than it was

abigailgrace, i'm so looking forward to feeling movement from my little one, though as i type it, it sounds veeeeery weird too! glad you're doing so well.

questions for you all:
with home midwives/no US technology, anyone know when twins might be detected? i'm guessing fundal height would be ahead, and they'd start searching for 2 heartbeats.

another one: was reading (in a book, conception to birth) that at 12 weeks, you can pick up fetal heartrate often with a stethoscope??? but my MW said the fetoscope won't work til usually 20 weeks.... i don't even know what a fetoscope is . anyway, anybody have insight on this?

me+him for 15 yrs, welcomed our little one march 25th, 2010.
