Definitely great news about the midwife, Amber. I heard back from one that I am interested in, and she said she could take me, too. I think DP and I will schedule a consult very soon.

prettyuglybefore - KD was super psyched. Especially since his girlfriend is currently interviewing at many out-of-state schools for grad school, and moving is a very real possibility. He said "I told (gf) that my work in Philly is done, so now we can move if we need to." He is really the sweetest. We are so lucky.

Oh, and I definitely hit a wall, too!

AFM - today had repeat beta draw. Hopefully I'll have good doubling time! I think we're looking for a number around 180-ish or higher.

Also, I've noticed that drinking TONS of water (as I think another mama mentioned) has really helped w/ any abdominal cramping.

Oh, and today is the official due date of AF. Something scary about this day... but I know I am pregnancy, and I will get through today (and subsequent days).

P.S. I love our DDC mamas, too.

Part hippie-chick, part type-A career woman, all mama. Enjoying life as a wife to my partner of 11 years, and a mama to our smarty-pants toddler, Cadence.

Went to the Dr. for a blood draw- it was positive. I was hoping for a quantitative test, I thought that was what the nurse ordered after telling her about my bleeding and my confusion. Oh well, my symptoms are getting stronger which is very reassuring.

I am going to have to find a MW. I had one that I loved, but we moved, so I am going to have to do some interviews. I know one personally that does HB, but appts. are in her home and that is a 40 min. drive. I am hoping to find a MW that will come to my home and that is really hands off.

Lindsay -- can't wait to hear about your beta! I have my repeat draw tomorrow and have my fingers and toes crossed.

I know what you mean about AF...I have to pee all.the.time but hate going because I'm afraid that I might see something red when I wipe! Does this feeling go away? I know I was neurotic with #1, but this is really stressing me out!

DD March 2007...happily nursing, EC graduated, family-bed-sharing family... expecting another in early November!

Man, are my boobs sore! They are huge and sore! I'm just 3w6d today. How long is this supposed to last? I took my bra off when I was getting ready for bed, and I sneezed. That didn't feel good at all! Thanks for letting me complain a little.

I really hope so. I'm starting to feel a little OCD w/ all the "checking." Lol!

I am 4w2d and my boobs are swollen and sore, too. I can't imagine that they're actually going to get even BIGGER!

AFM - I get my second beta results today... I'm hoping for a 180 or better, which would indicate doubling time of about 48 hours. for good news this afternoon! I feel like numbers showing good doubling time, and progesterone that stays high will finally be enough to make me relax a bit and embrace this pregnancy a bit more!

Took my last pregnancy test today lol. Its a digital and it didnt even take it a minute to come up as pregnant!
DS is starting to sleep alot better at night... maybe its because I am sleeping alot deeper. maybe its me that has been waking him up who knows but I am loving the sleep!

Cat married 4 yrs to DH DS '08 Early October 2010.

I'm hoping your numbers are GREAT!!

I told my 12 yo ds last night. He's pretty excited. I usually don't tell anyone this early, but this is my last, so I don't care who knows and when!!

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

I am the opposite. This is our last so I don't want to tell as we won't have this secret again. I plan to fully enjoy every moment. I am sure I will have to remind myself to enjoy it once I start feeling sick.

Cat, I am enjoying sleep too! I seem to go right into deep sleep as soon as I hit the covers. I am also having CRAZY dreams, but they have not disturbed my restfulness.

I e-mailed some MW today! I hope, hope, hope, I find one that will come to me. Two are not in the same town as me and I don't really want to drive very far for prenatala.

Yeah!! Today is the first morning since Sunday that I didn't wake up to a kid puking!

I'm feeling really, really good. No symptoms the last couple days except a headache. My nausea is pretty much nothing and although I'm tired, I'm not completely wiped out! It feels good and I'm going to enjoy it! Hopefully it lasts!

Hope eveyone is doing well!
