Can we talk about bloating? I'm bloated like several times worse than PMS, and I can't button up my pants. I'm not pregnant enough for maternity clothes. It's only a few weeks in! I'm doing the ole rubber band-buttonhole trick I remember from my last pregnancy (loop a rubber band through the button hole and make a loop - then put the loop around the button). But this seems inadequate.

Is anyone else really bloated?

I'm not really bloated in my belly, but I'm retaining fluid in my hands and feet... SOOO swollen. Can't get my rings on and off, and when I wake up I can't open bottles like juice and stuff. Makes feeding DS difficult.

hi steedalyn, congratuLATIONS.

I haven't been bloated, but my pants are not fitting well, that is due to about two weeks of eating way to many cookies.

I bought 8 internet cheapies in bulk. They didn't arrive by the time I was ready to test (9dpo) so I went and bought a pack of FRER (3). I took one and it was a faint positive. Took another the next day, also faint positive. Next day, more positive.

By the time the IC's came they were still reading negative when I was having positives on the FRER for days. They finally did start showing up but were much lighter than the FRERs. That's my experience with them.



UGH!!!! I'm having a horrible day today. I'm having palpitations because I ate donuts today which had MSG in them (I'm sensitive to msg). I've been having insomnia so I can't sleep and when I do I wake up about a million times and then my nervous system starts to go all crazy. I'm SO tired today but I can't get a break. Ds poured his milk out and mixed it with his donuts ALL over the table and floor, then he pooped on the carpet, then I spent 30 minutes trying to fix the nasty clogged garbage disposal and I can't get it to work. My 6 year old is not listening and has been in trouble all morning, and then I discovered he had flung spinach sauce on the white kitchen wall last night. I just want to lay down!!!!!

I realize I just made my house sound really nasty, and my kids are unruly. I promise it's not. It's generally quite nice and relaxing around here, and my kids are good. Today is just a bad bad day.

Hi all,

I want to introduce myself and share my BFP. I am also due Feb. 2 based on my LMP.

So far, not very many symptoms-- bloated, some heartburn at night, a little more frequent urination than usual, but I am not nauseous or fatigued and my BBs don't hurt. I hope the grand trifecta of pg symptoms kicks in soon so I can start to feel pg and stop worrying that it won't stick!!! I am still nursing my 3 yo dd once/day at bedtime, so I am a little worried that may affect this pg.

My symptoms when I was pg with dd didn't kick in until about 5.5 weeks, so hopefully in another week or so I'll be miserable and feel quite pg! :

congrats tulip.

I nursed through most of my last pregnancy, and as I type she (the baby from that preg) is nursing. And both girls nursed much more then once a day!

Has anyone started thinking about names? I am such a name junkie. I can't wait to have a ddc so we can have a whole thread devoted only to names.


Kimmie, do you have a key for your garbage disposal?? Many times it just needs the little key that came with it. I will talk to DH (he's a plumber) and ask him what you are supposed to do, and where to get one if you don't have yours.)

Yes we have one of those "tool" things. I always push the reset button and then put the tool in and turn it. It always works even if it takes a few tries. Dh is home now though, and he says there's something else wrong with it. He's still working on it though.

Things just keep getting worse and worse around here with the kids. Let me tell you. Today is definately one of those days.

visiting from the Jan 2009 DDC; my experience with the internet cheapies was the same as previous posters. I saw some *VERY*VERY*faint line, that I thought may be an evap line, on an internet cheapie, and was irritated enough that I went and bought an Answer Quick & Simple early test... which showed up + right away. Just for kicks I continued testing with teh cheapies, and they got progressively more dark - but not until I was... hmm. at least a week or more late. I won't be buying them next time, I had to confirm with a "regular" test... so if you're using them for early results, they're not fantastic.

I have a babystrology thing on my blog. http://www.babystrology.com/baby-tools/baby-tickers/

I am using this for my calendar http://www.justmommies.com/pregnancy_calendar.php

And I am using a lilypie ticker on my myspace page to remind me how many weeks/days I am. www.lilypie.com



Has anyone done the chinese gender chart? I did and it says GIRL. It was right for EVERY one of my others. http://www.thelaboroflove.com/chart/cal.html

So I told my partner today and--well he was not as excited as me . I know he'll get there. As I stated in my other post we both kinda thought it would take longer and well it didn't. I have been very tired today--and having to pee an awful lot. My boobs are still very tender. And I am kinda crampy every so often.

I have always had a running list of names in my head as far back as I can remember. We already kinda picked out a boy name that we both liked--but its alwasy subject to change IMO... My first baby went a few days without a name cause he did not "fit" any of the names on my list.

Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Does anyone know of a good site to keep a baby "diary". I guess I could always make a blog just about my pregnancy for family and stuff, but wondered if there were any specifics site made for that?
