Sorry this has taken so long for me to get started. Today has been a hectic one.
I still have some tweaking to do to the first post, so bear with me.

Hello! I'm 30 and I'm expecting May 2008. My partner gave birth to our first- she is 20 months old. Even though I "experienced" pregnancy vicariously through my wife, I have never been pregnant. It's already a trip:

Used to be stay at home parent to our two lovely girls, survived nursing school with family intact, about to graduate and looking for a job! I low-supply nursed my bio daughter for 3 years.

Thanks for starting the new thread Amiee! I can probably take on the November thread duties when the time comes - I will be away for most of September and into October traveling.

It's crazy (for me) to think that we have a new member who is due in May - that makes my being pregnant seem more real. I guess I'm about 8 weeks along right now and am due anywhere between April 14th & 18th but DH & I haven't even been discussing due date possibilities until I go see the doctor - which will be on Thursday - FINALLY! And really, other than trying to eat some extra protein for the baby and get some extra sleep I'm not really doing any baby-related stuff until we get back from vacation. And I failed miserably with the extra sleep aspect this weekend because the big project I have been working on launches tomorrow and I have been working late nights and early mornings. (This is the project: www.quantumshift.tv/schools if anyone is interested). Vacation can't come soon enough! (Only 11 more sleeps, but who's counting right?)

After my doctor's appointment we are telling the DH's parents. That should be interesting. We were going to wait until we got back from Ireland but we are seeing them on the weekend before we leave anyway so thought we had better do it before we see them (the DH is actually going to send them an e-mail so his Mum has a couple days to digest the information, do all her excited freaking out and then talk to us - it seems weird to me too but he doesn't have the best relationship with his family and deserves to deal with them in his own way.) I will be about 9 weeks along at that point - when do you gals start telling people you were pregnant, we've still hardly told anyone.

Mostly I'm just rambling and giving the other people obsessively checking the board for news of Emily & plummum something to read.

Melanie, Mum to DD1 (April 2008), DD2 (August 2010) and excepting #3 Feb 2012.

Ditto!! I though I'd missed their announcements, but nope. Hope they're both relaxing at home with their little ones!

Welcome new folks! Congrats on your pregnancies!

I'm still hanging in there. 40 weeks for me today and I'm feeling absolutely NOTHING. No cramping, no contractions, no nothing. I'm walking at least an hour a day and taking 2400mg of EPO orally, 1200mg vaginally. Nothing! It's a bit discouraging, but I have a feeling that my labor will start without much fanfare beforehand. Anyone wanna start taking bets on what day it will be? Personally, I'm betting on Tuesday.

Ok, I'm one of those obsessively checking the thread for news! Thanks guys for giving me something to read!

Becky, I hope labor comes soon for you! Are you really uncomfortable? Last night was one of those nights where I thought, I can't do this for one more day. I can't imagine how I'll feel in three months. One day at a time, as they say.

Melanie, cool project! Bet it does take a lot of time to put together. Are you a teacher?
Are you nervous about how your DH's family will respond to the pregnancy? We told close family and friends as soon as we knew (4 weeks) but saved the coworkers til they started figuring it out on their own, around 8 weeks. (I was eating crackers at work and people knew we were "trying"... they put two and two together and word got out. I mean, who eats starchy carbs in broad daylight anymore unless they've got morning sickness, right? )

Oh! Here's something else for the other obsessive thread-checkers to read:

MOTHER RANT:

So I thought she was turning things around and being supportive now... she bought a ticket to come see me in a month, and I was really looking forward to it cuz she was being all sweet, and now she seems to have taken another mean turn. Every time I tell her that something hurts, or my bladder is getting squeezed, or my legs are swollen, do I get sympathy? Motherly nurturing? NO! She laughs in my face. "It's every mother's revenge to see their daughters go through pregnancy." And, "Haha, see what I went through for you?" Even though she never had the back pain I do, or even experienced a contraction. GRR. Now I'm regretting that she's coming. I knew this would happen. Why is she so mean? Does she think it's funny to laugh at my pain? God! I mean, I never asked her to have me, ya know? I'm sorry that being a mother was so freakin miserable for her that now she has to rub it in my face. GOD.

Ok, rant over. Thank you for listening.

I'm sitting here eyes glazing over in front of the computer watching my images process. Thanks for giving me stuff to read while I wait . I'm anxiously awaiting new baby news!!

Melanie, we told people almost a week after we found out. First we told parents, siblings, and close friends. After we told everyone that we wanted to tell personally we let everyone know that it was ok if they mentioned it to others. I recently told colleagues since I know the rumor mill can go crazy and I've been telling my brides as their weddings happen (so they understand why I am constantly munching on something). I'll probably make an announcement on our blog once my 2nd trimester begins.

I'm a writer, so I'm trying to hammer out all the guidelines/faq/information video-scripts etc. that we need. I'm not the only one working on it though, there is a team of us but since we all telecommute it can be difficult getting the right information.

However, telecommuting also means I haven't had to tell any of my coworkers yet. Unlike you, the other day when all I could eat were Triscuits, nobody but the DH saw.

We are nervous about telling the DH's Mum because she will go nuts and start shopping. I know that sounds odd but we are quite anti-consumerist people, preferring to shop second-hand and don't like owning a lot of stuff and live in a small (although perfectly accommodating apartment). When his older brother & wife started having kids they begged her not to go nuts buying things and she got really offended and said she could do what she wanted for her grandchildren. Christmas, needless to say, is a bit of a nightmare with the nephews crying because they don't want to open any more presents! Talk about an odd problem to have eh? However the DH's brother & wife also put a lot of the presents away to donate to kids who need them and the nephews don't even mind. Most of the presents break within the first couple months anyway. We just wish they would save their money and buy a cow for a village or something. We think spending time with your grandkids is much better than just spending money on them, they do that too but feed the kids full of sugar and get them really wired and I can tell it is hard for the DH brother & wife to calm them down after a couple days a grandmas. Really, I don't even like talking about this kind of thing because I know how ungrateful it makes us sound. His parents aren't bad people, but he has a hard time getting along with them.

I'm so sorry Grace that your Mum is saying these things to you! This makes my rant seem fairly insignificant. I always find it so interesting to hear how people react to pregnancies. My sister calls almost every day now giving me "advice" - like telling me that I probably shouldn't worry about breast feeding since Mum & her didn't do it. And that she would kill me if I went to a midwife and home birthed etc. (We aren't going to a midwife but only because we can't afford it and don't have any insurance). I always find it interesting when people find happiness in other people's pain. I hope things work out for you soon.

I'm looking forward to do this too. It has been weird not to talk about it there but I don't want people who I do know in "real life" to find out via my blog without having the opportunity to tell them first.

Can you tell I'm really not into work-mode today?

OK I admit I've been checking for updates from Emily and Plummom too!

Aimee
thanks so much for the new thread!

Jenn, Karen and Erin!

Jenn(Piper) how are you? I've been thinking about you & your family.

Becky wow your due date is here! How does it feel to see zero days remaining on a ticker? I'm amazed at how calm you are about it and hope I can be the same way. She'll come when she's ready, right? Of course a little EPO can't hurt!

Julia I'm sorry your mom is being like that. : How can she blame you for her pregnancy? Hopefully her sweet side will be showing when she comes to visit, then you won't have to deal with her in the crazy period after birth.

Melanie I told my parents a couple days before AF was due. I got a BFP very early and had a good feeling about this pregnancy, so I went ahead and told. They knew I had 2 early losses a few months before this preg, so it wasn't a big surprise. DH told his parents a few days later, I think. I told work around 7.5 weeks since I worked with potentially hazardous materials. I understand your issues w/ your MIL & FIL too - I think you'll find that behavior isn't unusual. In our culture grandparents are supposed to spoil their grandkids, so affection expressed through products instead of time. Sounds like your BIL and SIL humor them & that may be the best tactic for you too.

Good news! The Breathe Right strips worked to stop my snoring! Oh I'm so relieved. I slept so well last night - I guess the snoring had been interfering with my sleep too.

OMG I'm officially 8 months pregnant now. Wow.

Dee, mommy to Miss M 11/07 and little Miss I 5/10/10!

Becky, Hang in there! I would put my bet on Monday. I am certain it will be Friday at the latest. Crossing my fingers for you.

Natalia, How are you doing?

Um, no, I'm actually quite comfortable. I don't know how I've gotten away with this for so long. I even got 10 hours in bed last night, only getting up to pee twice. Weird, huh?? I'm enjoying my sleep, though!

Julia, sorry your mom's being that way! Ugh! Sounds like my MIL!!

Dee, well, I'm calm now. But that comes and goes. I was a tearful mess Thursday and Friday! Then I got zen. I'm sure as the week progresses I'll get anxious again, especially feeling the pressure of an induction I'll want to fight after only one week. Blah. But YAAAAY on your snoring problem being solved!! WOOHOO! And how in the world did you get to be 8 months pregnant?? Gawd, I can remember when we were all still TTC!

Pie, tomorrow is fine by me!! How's Lorelei doing?

oh lord, we are having a rough evening, as detailed in my thread in BF'ing. I am feeling maxed out from 4.5 + hours of nursing, with breaks of no more than 3 minutes. dh will be like, 1 more round? please? i felt resentful because it was like never-ending. but before that it was glorious. we took our first bath together and she loved it and dh got the cutest pictures. and we figured out how to use the sling, so we have been out and about a lot -- her first social outing on friday, with my pregnant friend; yesterday out to brunch and a romantic dinner with dh at the hot new ethiopian restaurant; and a museum today. OMG, is that her barnyard noises or is she going to cry? ok, not crying. thank god.

i am pages behind in this thread.

Hidy ho, ladies. Doing my monthly check-in.

Grace, it's interesting: your mom and my mom seem to say sort of similar things, but I think it's all a question of tone. It doesn't upset me because she's only ever teasing. (Of course, my mom's wanted me to have a baby forever, so that probably helps, too.) If she were being mean about it, I'd have to just stop talking to her for both of our sakes! I hope you find some way to let her know that she needs to back off.

And Becky, I am so jealous. I don't think I've gotten 10 hours of sleep since I was a newborn! And the worst part about it is that my dear, sweet nephew boy is the most chipper morning person I know! Seriously, he wakes up giggling "Hi Aunt!"
(He is definitely the only morning person in this house!)

Yay for more December mamas joining! It still feels like I have so.long.to.wait!
At least I'll have company around here.
(Though, ooh, if Dee is eight months, that means I'm seven. Thank goodness: we're in the third trimester!! Woo hoo.)

Good morning ladies, I'm still anxiously waiting for news from Emily and Plumm!

Grace my mom is a bit like yours with the comments she makes, when I wad there visiting this summer I had a couple of times when I was nauseous and vomiting and when I said I was going to lie down she rolled her eyes and said "you're not sick Sarah, you're pregnant get over it!" She had three kids and was never sick through her pregnancies but I still couldn't believe that she was so unkind about it. That's my mom though, she has very little patience for any kind of 'weakness' in her eyes. She's going to be in town when I give birth and in a way I'm glad for it because she'll get me up and moving when I'll probably need it but on the other hand I wish she had a slightly lighter touch.

Dee good to know the strips work, I might have to get some for dh - he has horrible allergies and I have to banish him to the couch many nights at this time of year.

Becky sending you lots of easy labour vibes!

Nothing much new for me, I'm getting a terrible cold which is always fun when it's sweltering out. I'm still getting sick most days but it's just routine now. Our big u/s is Thursday and I'm so anxious to find out the sex now that we've decided to that I can hardly sleep. All the dreams I've had since the start have been about having girls (including one doozie last night that I gave birth to a 8lb9oz girl in great detail including placenta which totally freaked me out) but I have a strong feeling also that it'll be a boy because all dh's family has boys. We'll know in a couple of days!

Welcome to all the new people, congrats on your pregnancies

Morning ladies, still no news from Emily or Plumm? I'm getting worried.

Thanks for all the support about the mom-dilemna. I think she thinks she's teasing when she says those things but I'm never laughing and she's not getting the picture. I did tell her this time, "One "I told you so" and I'm taking you straight back to the airport", so I'm getting stronger with her. Maybe that's why she's getting worse, who knows. Perhaps she's pushing back. It's just weird to me that she's like this so much during my pregnancy because I thought she wanted a grandchild so badly and she's been all weird. Oh well, what's new.

Sarah, good luck on your u/s! I was so excited for mine I could hardly sit still for days. I also had dreams about having a girl, but was wrong! I was like, "Why does my little girl have a penis?" Good luck and come let us know how it goes! I'll be waiting for Thursday now!

Oh, thank GOD the weather is cooling off. I have to go buy new maternity clothes... but I'm outgrowing my XL's from Motherhood... NOW where do I shop? Man I feel huge. Why can't they make maternity clothes that grow with you the whole pregnancy? :
