So yeah,just tired and feeling yucky all the time.With my dd's i felt like this.
How is everyone?
I see a few mama's lost their babes i'm so sorry.
March Mama's Arrival Dates for 2005
Somewhere to grow 3/13
I am so sick this morning.I was hoping the B vitamins would kick in more but no.In the morning i know i need to eat but i'm too sick to make anything.
I have lots of catching up to do and i need to meet with some midwives to pick the one for us.
The midwife we're going to use is out of town at present, but I need to get dh to call and leave a message - I hate using the phone, in general, so one thing he does for me all the time, but especially when I'm pregnant, is make all the phone calls.
I went out this morning and bought some Preggie Pops. I think I'm going to have to buy a box off their website.

I'm feeling good. I've have the slightest bit of nausea at times and a little more fatigue than usual. At this point in my last pregnancy I was tied to the couch for weeks, so I consider myself fortunate. Thank goodness too -- I don't know how we would get our work done otherwise.

I went to the library today and checked out a monster stack of pregnancy books. I'm going to be reading up a storm, because I only grabbed about 1/3 of the books that interested me and there's more that I want at other branches. :LOL I was surprised to see so many natural pregnancy and childbirth books!
Big hugs to mamas who have lost babies.
ravenmoon, Big Sur? aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
What books is everyone reading? (Yes, that's proper grammar, I just spent three minutes mentally diagramming the sentence. : ) I went through some of my books when I was moving three months ago and tossed out some, and I'm starting to think I could have gotten rid of another couple. My favorite book at the moment is Aviva Jill Romm's The Natural Pregnancy Book. She actually lives near me, but apparently she stopped practicing last year (she's a CPM), and decided to go to medical school. I made up a list of books I'd recommend to give to a friend a few months ago and it was an interesting exercise!

Feeling apprehensive about my weight. I'm starting this pregnancy 20 lbs. heavier than the last--and I had 20 lbs. to lose to begin with! I don't believe in restricting weight gain in pregnancy. I do believe in eating the best foods you can and letting your body gain what it wants. I didn't gain weight until my 26th week with my daughter (just checked the calendar to confirm that crazy statistic)!
All that said, I'm worrying about coming out of this one looking like a stretched-out cow. I'm the heaviest I've ever been, and getting used to this new...er..."voluptuous" body is taking some work!
Thanks for letting me get that all out there. It's nice to have a place to talk pregnancy stuff! Blessings to all!

Oh Patchfire... I just saw Aviva Rom speak a few weeks ago and I talked to her a bit personally. She is sooo great. She really misses practising but because she is going to medical school she can't risk the practising without a liscence. Do contact her for ideas on other midwives, she was so wonderful and she would help. She is going to medical school to see if she can make herbal medicine and natural things more prevelant if she comes with a recognized medical backgroud .
I have my perinatalogist appointment tomorrow afternoon. It's a 2 hour drive to get there so it'll be a very loooong day. Fortunately dh is off tomorrow so he's going to stay home with the kids. No sense strapping them into the car that long. It'd be nice to have the company though... I'm feeling pretty nervous at the moment. I just don't want to be patronized as so many doctors love to do... The doc I love here says she'll be putting me on lovenox tomorrow so we'll see if that actually happens. I doubt they'll do an u/s, I'll only be 6w2d. We'll see. But I'll definitely be asking for one at my reg OB appointment on the 21st. I'll be 7w1d so should be able to see a heart beat. I'll be able to breath a little easier once we see a heartbeat... It's all I can do not to dig out my doppler! LOL Obviously entirely too early but it's sooo tempting to try! I found ds's at just 9 weeks. I rented it during the 5+ months I was on bedrest with dd and ended up buying it. It sure helped keep me sane between appointments!
Anyhoo... have a great night everyone! Welcome and congrats to all the newbies!
Kash, you asked about books--I'm reading From Conception to Birth (the photography is amazing!) Other than that, I'll probably re-read Birthing From Within

I am also at my heaviest weight, but I am strangely in better shape then I have ever been. In April, for my birthday, I started an exercise routine that I've kept up with - Pilates ab workout 3/week, 20 min on the norditrak 2-3 times a week and walking whenever possible. I already can't reach the handles on the norditrak and be comfortable so that's out!
Anybody got any ideas for indoor aerobic exercise (for during toddler naptimes)? If I don't get those endorphins I will not be able to get out of bed every morning!!!!
will have my first meeting with the home birth midwife this sunday. she lives about 1 1/2 hours away!! I am so much more laid back about prenatal care this time around. I feel like I could probably do without most of it. I just don't want to be bothered with anything these days! Ugh!
I guess I'll have to ask how often she is over booked? I did like though, that their well and sick rooms, were literally seprate, 2 different doors and a wall in between. Not like our last place, where it was all open, but the better toys were in the sick side! So duh, where did ds always go?!
Anyway, I have an appointment with the OB's office next Wednesday, and a meeting with my HB MW the first week of August,probably Tuesday, not 100% sure yet. One of thoes visits, I'm sure I'll run in to you Kash! lol
I have been very bad in the last week, buying maternity clothes. But I think I'm done until it gets cold, then I'll buy a sweater, maybe 2 if they are on sale.
And to top it off I had a horrible dream last night where I went to the restroom and there was blood everywhere. Scared the crap outta me. And of course dh just snored on....I hope I don't have anymore dreams like that.
Anyhow it was very cool. Nothing really happened but it was truly that first time I have ever visualized my baby as anything other than a newborn.
In other news, I feel like my stomach is so huge! This is my first pregnancy, I just don't understand why I have such a big stomach so early in the process. I also wonder if my coworkers, whom I have not yet told, wonder if I got a boob job. I was gone for the last month or so and now I'm back with these huge gazongas...
Welcome Wildcrafter I am sticking with walking fast on the treadmill and yoga right now.Running was my thing but it makes me feel very crampy.
Going to meet with an OB today as my back up person.He works for the nearest hospital so that works for me.I will meet with a few midwives next week.I am having a backup because our insurance doesn't cover the midwife.So just in case!
Still feeling very yucky and food is always making me gag.All of it too.I tried eating ice cream and i got sick.Now my boobs are finally getting sore.They haven't hurt once and now the nursing is getting painful and the shower this morning
My week's been crazy... a good friend from RI is visiting, got her Tuesday evening. Today I drove her and her teenage son around Atlanta and tried to convince her she wants to move down here.
My boobs are just killing me. Not my nipples so much, thank god, but overall, it's no picnic. I've got the hypersensitive sense of smell going on too, bleh. No uke yet, thank goodness. Just feeling a little Definitely on the 'must eat every three hours at the maximum plan.'

I hear you! With each one I became more laid-back. When I was on the phone with my midwife and she asked when I wanted to come in, I was thinking, "Ohhhh...how about February?" :LOL I'll go in for the bloodwork and such next month, but really, my feeling at this point is, the baby's gonna grow, and then in March he/she will come out--what else is there?
Amanda--I'm soooo glad to hear that someone besides me is buying maternity clothes this early. I found some good sales and couldn't resist, but I felt a little silly doing it this soon. Twice now, I've given away my maternity clothes, thinking I was done. (But this is *really* the last time.)

I'm at six weeks now, mamas, and yesterday my pants definitely felt too tight! yikes! the scale says I haven't gained any weight but my body shape is definitely changing. I'm puffier on top of my stomach, as if things are already starting to get pushed out of place. all in all I am happy with my progress so far because with DS I gained 16 pounds the FIRST trimester!!!! yikes~! (my thyroid problem was undiagnosed at that point, I had just quit smoking, and I took "eating for two" a little too literally - LOL)
