I'm in for late February! I've known for sure that I was pregnant for about a week now, but tested yesterday. The moment the + or - area got wet, it was a dark, distinct +. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I've had a huge list of symptoms that made the test pretty unnecessary.<br>
Little crampy pains in my abdomen.<br>
Belly a little bloated looking.<br>
Uncontrollable sex drive.<br>
Big huge breasts.<br>
Nipples sore when I nurse.<br><br><br>
And DH says my calves look stronger, as soon as I get pregnant. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I know there were a couple of others, but that gets the idea across. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
We have a 3.5 yr old son. He had craniosynostosis which is a congenital premature fusing of sutures in the skull. He had surgery at 5 months for it. Most cases are random, but there is a possibility of a genetic link, though no test for it. DH and I both have heads which are slightly less round than normal, which can, but doesn't have to be, a link to the genetic factor. So, we worry that this critter may have it too.<br><br>
Last December, I miscarried a blighted ovum that appeared to be twins, since there seemed to be two distinct placentas. (And, DS had a twin that didn't develop.) So, I'm also aware that twins are a big possibility. They definitely run in my family. I can't get my keyboard/mouse to get the cursor back where I want it, so I'll just add it here that my m/c was at 17 wks. And, I'll add that 98% of craniosynostosis is non-genetic. Sorry those thoughts are out of place, but I don't want to retype the whole thing to get them in line.<br><br>
Whew...that was a huge intro. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Hi everyone!!!
