Anyone else spend every waking moment and thought on this new found pregnancy and baby that is to come?!

I am! You would think by the 5th time it would be old news!

I'm just so excited! I'm excited for the pregnancy and the baby belly! I keep imagining my labor and delivery. The sweet smell of a newborn! (I wish I could bottle it!) I think of holding a brand new slippery little being, the nursing, the cuddles, the teeny tiny toes! AHHHH!!! I just can't wait!

Maybe it's because this is VERY likely my last baby and I want to enjoy every second!

So...how about you? Are you obsessed yet?

Life is to be enjoyed...not just endured!

I know! Me neither!!! I keep thinking of the sweet little bean growing in my belly and how nice it will be to bring another member of our family into the world.

I already bought a few maternity things since I gave away all my stuff thinking I wouldn't have any more.

I was looking online today for maternity clothes. I went through my bin of maternity clothes and I think I'm a bit "heftier'' now than I was then.
So, I will likely be buying more clothes also!

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

yeah, i am too. i'm really really excited--cautious a bit, as i typically am until the risks of miscarriage lessens, but i've been giddy happy since finding out. i haven't been in this good of mood in i don't know how long.

been reminiscing about the 2nd trimester. i absolutely love the 2nd tri. morning sickness and lethargy are gone, as is the moodiness, you're finally showing but your bump is still really cute and compact (unlike the whale proportions it becomes toward the end) and maternity clothes are fittin' real cute.

i left the bfp stick on the back of the toilet this morning for dh to find. while he hasn't said anything yet (i think he must worry that he's in trouble, lol) he's been super sweet and attentive.

Midwife apprentice and mama to 6, including three UC babies: Jude River, 06/04/08, Alora Wren Isolde, 9/27/10, and our newest addition, Ailish Brynn Elspeth, 6/12/14!

I'm really excited, too. Glad to see I'm not the only one thinking about buying maternity clothes already.

At the same time, I'm a bit cautious like you, ladyelms. I've never personally had a m/c, but a close friend had one just a couple of months ago. It was obviously really rough on her, and as a result, I think I'm a bit guarded. We're not planning on telling anyone for several weeks yet. We just had a death in the family last month, and the miscarriage the month before, so I don't want to be the bearer of more bad news if things don't work out with this baby. But, that's not stopping me from being totally happy right now and completely consumed with this tiny little life growing inside me!

Me, married to DH, my childhood sweetheart. Lucky mom to an amazing DD (10/15/10), , a funny little DS (1/11/13) , and 3 silly dogs. Expecting someone new February 14, 2015!

Yes definitely..only slightly tempered by the fact that DH isn't quite as excited as I thought he'd be. He's happy - just worried about financial stuff lately.

I started looking for maternity clothes online the same day I got my bfp. Specifically, I need clothes to wear to church and Motherhood doesn't exactly sell what I need.

This little baby is the first thing I think of, the last thing, the all day thing. I couldn't bond with ds until he was born, I think because I didn't realize how naturally he would become a part of my life that I couldn't ever imagine not having -- as if he'd been a part of me all along and I just never knew it. Now that I know how cool that bond is, I want nothing more than to meet the rest of my family.

I must be the anomally because although I am sorting out a me and come one here once a day, that's really all I think about it. Maybe it's because me and the little one are sick at the moment, or maybe it's because I am just so busy trying to make the most of our alone time before baby comes, but I really dnt even think about this pg much so far. I guess I still don't really believe it either. Guess that will change when the morning sickness kicks in if it is anything like last time!

I just found out this morning, but so far, yes. I feel all giggly and like every topic on Earth comes right back around to the baby. "I need to clean off the nightstand... where will we put it when we sidecar the crib?" "I should put this away for our Halloween Party... but wait, we'll have a newborn, we can't have the party this year." Etc.

Awwww...I love this! I am not quite obsessed yet...but I can already feel that soft melty-ness of being pregnant creeping in around the edges of my heart...It's such a surprise, but every day I am growing more attached to this third baby and marveling how a mommy's heart can expand more and more with every child.

Yes...totally obsessed...but I am pregnancy obsessed to begin with. I LOVE LOVE LOVE being PG...I love everything about it. My hubby says this is our last baby but I hold the fact that we have three frozen embryos in the back of my mind...I want one more in about 2 or 3 years...we'll see...

I'm finding it hard not to scream it from the rooftops...I want to tell everyone I walk past...I love being PG!

Mama to Jack (12/7/06) & Liam (4/3/08) & Iris Hope (10/6/10)
