I think we need a weekly chat like the other DDC's!

I'm 5 weeks 1 day today according to my O date. Still not feeling much symptom-wise. It makes me nervous that I don't have morning sickness or anything yet but I know its still early. My mom never felt sick so maybe I'll have it easy like her. I have been craving pickles, chicken salad, and port wine cheese terribly. The pickle cravings are strange to me because I never liked them!

I have my first appt in 16 days and I can't wait. This is my first pregnancy and first baby and its scary. I just want to see that heartbeat!

Loving my husband and our beautiful daughter.  TTC baby #2!

Good idea!

Try not to worry about the lack of symptoms - I had very little in the way of symptoms last time and the same this time - plus you've still got time

Actually, my main symptom thus far has been bloating - which I did not have this badly this early on last time. Weird? I think I also feel much less jumpy this time than last time - or maybe it just hasn't sunk in for me yet?? We are planning to tell the family this weekend which should be fun.

Yes thats exciting! We're telling my grandparents tomorrow and I'm really excited. This will be their first great-grandchild!

And I know what you mean, it hasn't sunk in yet for me at all. I'm excited but it doesn't feel real!

I'm 4w2d and had my first OB appt today (just blood work and confirmation of pregnancy). They scheduled me for an u/s a month from now and I can't wait! We won't be telling family until 14 weeks or so and will wait to make it public until even later (probably 20 weeks) due to my past losses.

I'm 4w1d today. I had my first beta today it was 315 I'll have another on thursday. We concieved with IUI & injectables. I started having symptoms at 8dpo Heartburn, frequent urination, sore boobs and excesive hunger. I was poas every as I was testing out the trigger, I had what I thought were evaps on 8&9dpo by the evening of 10 dpo I saw faint pink by 14 DPO the test line was as dark as the control. I also got an intestinal virus yesterday and have been suffering since, I'm starving but anything I eat goes right through me, it is not fun.

I'm 4w1d today. I haven't had any symptons yet either. With my previous two pregnancies, I didn't really have any symptons until morning sickness hit around week 7-ish. My mw doesn't need to see me until 12 weeks, and we're not telling anyone until after that appt. Can't wait to see that heartbeat

I'm super excited, but also super nervous. I've mentioned in other posts DD2 is not quite 9 months, so I'm a little worried about continuing to nurse her and how we will all adjust to #3.

AHA!!! This is where I read about the port wine cheese!! It stuck in my brain and I HAD to have some!! LOL!! I did not eat the entire jar with a spoon but I did put it on a burger!!

Other than that and some bloating I'm not feeling anything! I'm sure I'll kick myself for this but I could do with a little something to make it seem more real. Maybe I need to go POAS!

Hi All!!! OK if I join? I'm due at the end of March, but I'm nearly certain I'll have an April baby. My first was 10 days late (and would have gone later but I was induced ) I will happily let things ride their course this time around, and will likely get that support since we're going with a midwife/home birth this time.

I'm 6 weeks and a handful of days and have been a bit queasy the last couple of days, and having some crazy insomnia.

Hey - here's a question for you ladies in the same boat as I am...Almost a dead give away for me that I am pregnant is that I start to have really racy dreams. Like racy. Like Harlequin racy. Uncomfortably racy .

Anyone else "suffer" from this pregnancy symptom

I wish....my dreams are always really freaky. The most memorable from my 1st pregnancy was bear sex robots (like the country bear jamboree )

4w3d here, not a whole lot in the symptom dept. Boobs being a bit 'heavy' was one of the tip offs I might be pg, and I look bloated for sure, but not too much else.

THis will be baby #4 for us, I'm still trying to process another one, but I'm really excited too. THe kids went nuts when we told them, it was sweet.

Looking forward to a h&h 9 months for us all!

LOL to the dream stuff. Same here and it results in some mid-nights romps with DH I second the waking up with an orgasm, but for me that was always more likely to happen when breastfeeding

So DH keeps laughing at me because I'll mention a "non-symptom" like wanting a boiled egg and he'll say "this is just like the last time!" and I swear I don't remember these things with DS. So maybe I am symptomatic.

Anyone else crying at commercials yet?

It's not so much the commercials with me but these darn sappy songs all over the radio LOL

Other than that I'm not really feeling many other symptoms....which is starting to worry me a bit.

I have an 18 month old that has picked up a few extra nursing sessions too. Maybe our supplies are dropping?

Congrats Jenn! I would be so surprised if you heard a heartbeat at your first appt! So don't be scared if you don't. I mean, I have heard of it happening, but even at 10 weeks, it is not for sure; not until 12 weeks, generally.

We told my parents this weekend, earlier than we planned, but we figured, if I m/c, we'd tell them about that. So it's just immediate family until 10+ weeks. I'm just about 5w now, so a bit of time yet before we share. My husband is a pastor of small church so they will be sooooo excited at the news. I have a 15mo DS. I got my very, very faint BFP at what I think was about 10DPO, but I wasn't charting, just approximating. Only today did I get the slightest bit of nausea, and immediately took more milk thistle.

It doesn't seem real since I don't feel much! Apparently our babes are about the size of a poppy seed right now...

kaPOW, you are more than welcome! You could very well have an April baby!

LOL @ racy dreams. Not me but certainly possible! haha.

wildponie - I just read a thread in the March DDC that someone theorized that nursing while pg lead to no breast tenderness, so maybe that is the case with you? It describes me...mine isn't asking to nurse any extra.

I'm not sure if DS has picked up extra sessions--he is pretty much always eating anyway. And I am starting a freezer supply just in case since he's so young and can get 2oz in a 5-10min session with a manual pump (same as before) so I think my supply hasn't dipped yet.

Hey all! Feeling more and more pg everyday. SO excited for that! Hoping that this one sticks and I dont mc again. My nips are super sensative today...as well as bb's getting BIGGER already and more sore. I just had a HUGE twitch right in the middle of my uterus...so weird! LOL I'm at the annoying 'oh so hungry, then I can only get half of it down'...urgh. Told all of our immediate family this weekend so I can finally talk about it to people IRL. YAY! Already have pg brain. So annoying. I too cry at everything. EVERYTHING. A friend that havent talked to in awhile(long story) messaged me when I posted on FB that I was pg today and I teared up. Getting dizzy when I need to eat...like right now. Oh my...I'm feeling several twinges right now! gonna go eat!
