I do the same thing all the time. Or I'll read on my phone and say I'll respond on the computer later. I was ditzy enough prior to pregnancy, now I need to literally make lists or things that I can do (like post here lol) won't get done.

So I've been dealing with a lot of back pain for the past couple weeks. I prefer not to take anything unless it's absolutely necessary, so I've been trying to just work through it.
I'm still taking half a Zofran occasionally, but I'm trying my best not to take it at all.

We found out last Friday that we are having a baby boy, and today at my appt the doc said all his measurements are good. 7oz boy at 17w3d is pretty good, I think.

DH's only source of income stopped... We are able to get by right now, but it has left us in a situation where we will be selling our big, beautiful house, and moving an hour away. We will be staying with my FIL and SMIL until we find a place that will suit us. Not thrilled about that one. Really sad to leave our home but I know it's for the best.

That's about all my scrambled brain will let me get out right now. Thanks for listening.
I was 17w3d last Tuesday and Madison weighed 7oz, so yes, very good! I'm sorry to hear about DH's income. The outlook I've been trying lately is these things happen for a reason, and if the higher power out there didn't think we couldn't handle it, they wouldn't have thrown us that curve ball. I hope you get things settled and the brighter side of it all shines sooner rather then later!

This past week has been a challenge on my husband and I, considering I never needed help in the past. I break down constantly because I'm not allowed to do anything. Our friends take rotating shifts to help out, hubby is working 70-90 hours a week to make up for two incomes, and I feel like crap. And to make matters worse, I feel awful asking him for food or water or whatever I need. He gets grumpy with me, and when I approach him about it, he says I'm looking into things too much. I read body language, faces, and tone of voice. All three of his fall right into the category, "annoyed and pissed off." I don't want the help, I want to be able to function on my own. I keep telling myself it's his job making him crabby, but the immediate emotional affect it has on me has been taking it's toll.

Thankfully on the 12th, my other MIL comes home from taking care of her sick mother. Oh yeah, I technically have 3 MILs. His biological who we will never ever hear from or know so she doesn't count, his adopted mom who is the one I've been dealing with forever, and the woman we call his 2nd momma who is finally coming home. I'm excited, because she is ready to help me out and won't let me say no. And she is the most excited about baby Madison. Hubby is going to have a problem though, because she is going to end up ripping him a new one. There's a lot not getting done here, and I'm not suppose to be doing any of it anymore (but I've tried). I'm still not going to be happy about someone taking care of me, but it's more consistency which will be nice.

Sorry for the ranting. Sometimes I just can't keep it all in, and our friends don't need to hear that he's being a "jerk." They have unfortunately and they're far from happy, but that's a whole other story.

It sounds to me like he's just under a lot of pressure! Not to take anything away from your feelings, they are valid. I'm sure you are both very stressed. Blessings to you both. It will all be ok in the end!!

Hello Ladies, mind if I join again? Sorry for the absence.

We are 14 weeks and I am finally starting to feel a little better . No more barfing every day! And I can finally look at a computer screen long enough & not be as nauseas . Baby is doing well- Great heartbeat! Our next appointment in on July 18th. We just told FB and all friends and family know so that was fun.

Welcome to all the new graduates! How exciting this is!! I loved seeing all those BFP's from the TTC thread. Wishing you all happy and healthy pregnancies. I will try to "catch up" as best I can with personals!

Have a great day everyone!

Married August 2012 .......    Baby BOY due Jan 6!
Love my two monstersMalamute & Newfoundland

Ladies do you think we should start this over each month, so it's easier for others to keep up? Most threads that's what they do. Any thoughts? @innacircle would you mind? I can do it. I know you've been busy.

Yes. I actually suggested this earlier, but didn't get a response. There was also talk about putting due dates on the front page at the time.

Now mom to a boy born January 2010.

Ok. I've read every post and I'm all caught up! I would love the monthly thread. It's way easier for me to stay caught up.

Dm sorry about the financial situation!

Mo I'm right there with you on fears of vag. birth but the repeat cs sounds worse at least to me!


Kita hello again! Glad you are feeling better!

Badwolf I feel so bad you are basically trapped by pregnancy but it will be well worth it once your babe is here!

Sorry if Missed you!

AFM soooo busy and exhausted. We finally moved to our new house and the work putting it together is endless! That plus STAIRS and 800sq ft more room makes me one tired mama! Like BAD!!!! What a task! At least the house is great!

I'm due OCT 12th according to my ultrasound and LMP. I'm assuming I'll go over but we shall see. 25 weeks already is just crazy!

My first came a month early, and everyone in my family is known for early labors or babies that hang out too long past 40 weeks. No one has ever been on time. I'd prefer the early labor lol.

Alright, today is the day. Doctor's appointment at 15 weeks. IF this busy child of mines cooperates, then we may get to find out the sex. If not, just seeing him or her bouncing around and a strong heartbeat works for me. I was up to 3am last night feeling so anxious. I always feel that way just before a doctor's appointment. Anyway, I'll update later.

Just got home from my appt and everything looks good. Baby has a great heartrate in the high 150s. We didn't do an ultrasound this time so I go back in two and half weeks for a full scan. Hopefully we find out the sex.

I tell you, there is something so relieving about hearing that little heartbeat each time.

No matter what the doctors/midwives might say during appts, the heartbeat makes everything better than it was prior.

Hey ladies just a quick update. Had our heartbeat scan this morning and everything looks great still. Baby is actually measuring 3 days ahead at 6 weeks 6 days. The heartbeat was 120. it was amazing to see the flicker and get to hear it. I have been pretty miserable today. I actually had such bad stomach cramps this morning that I thought I was miscarrying. No blood.. Just a lot of gas and stomach upset.

@alivewithyou yay for a heartbeat! And gas is going to be completely normal for you for a few weeks. It definitely helps to stay away from dairy for a bit.

AFM, attempting to enjoy this holiday weekend. We went to DH's friend's daughter's 1st birthday party yesterday. It was fun. Though as always, I felt awkward. More people I don't know VS people I know, and my networking skills lack these days. Being on crutches and pregnant is not my strongest moment, and that's all people want to talk about even though I don't want to. I will gladly talk about Madison, but I hate talking about this damn foot! People don't pay attention though.

Hope everyone had a Happy 4th!
