I had a great wkend. I went shopping for my girls and for me. I got a new maternity wardrobe! I can't wait to start wearing them all. I never had much in mat clothes for my other pgcies and I just tried to tough it out with the few mat clothes that I did have.<br><br>
Today, I also have a midwife appt. I can't wait. My dh wants to bring the girls so it would be totally cool if we could hear the heartbeat.<br><br>
How many wks are you today?? I'm 10wks and 1 day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'm 8 weeks today! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> Have fun at your appointment today. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I don't have my first appointment for another 2-1/2 weeks.... I'm trying to wait patiently.<br><br>
Speaking of exciting maternity clothes- I hit the Goodwill last week, and it just happened to be $1.29 red tag day, and I found 2 really nice long sleeve shirts (perfect for this winter!) with red tags!! Gotta love that deal.

I am eight weeks, five days today. I started getting morning sickness on Friday, along with a big, bad case of the tireds. I couldn't even stand up long enough to let my sweetie give me a good hug. I want only bean and cheese burritos, but haven't been able to bring myself to soak beans. I even made my fella stop at Taco Bell yesterday, since we were driving through a town we aren't very familiar with.<br>
Today, I think I might have enough energy to water the garden and call another couple of midwives, since the more I think of it, the less I relish the idea of having to live somewhere else for the last month of my pregnancy in order to be close to the first midwife I interviewed. Shame, I liked her.

10w6d. Oh my, time is already going by so quickly. Before we know it, we will be holding our new little wee ones. I am starting to feel better. As long as I keep the procession of food going LOL<br><br>
We started out fall session of homeschooling today. Whew, wears me out. Atleast the kids have been more than happy to start up again. They love learning and it keeps them busy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Of course the babies are playing nicely right now and as soon as I am ready to start up the next lesson, they will get rowdy again.

I'm 8w1d today and have barely any symptoms. I'm exhausted and I have a lot of trouble moving food through my system, but no nausea or ms, no real issues... I do have a lot of a metallic taste in my mouth, and that's about it... Oh and I'm starving!! I just ate two servings of green beans and now debating a yucky big Mac! I'm a nervous wreck about this pg because I've already lost three babies, but in somewhat of a pattern.... We lost one in october 2002" then had my dd in aug 2003... Lost one in April at 11 wks in 2006, then had my ds in march 2007... Then lost this most recent one in feb 2010, at ten wks... So I'll feel a lot better nice we get past the eleven wk mark.... We have found out both of those losses when the md tried to listen for hb and it wasn't there.... My body apparently doesn't let me know when there's an issue and that is no good!<br><br>
Anyway, I am still Hanging around for now and will be hopeful that we all have a long time together here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

Hi ladies! I'm 10w3d today and I thought I had made it past the sickie days but nope, came back on strong! I pretty much go downhill after lunch. Hopefully this will be over soon. I had an appt with my endocrinologist today to go over my TSH levels. (I have Hashimoto's) We agreed that even though my TSH is a little low right now, we are going to keep my meds as is because I haven't hit the peak time yet when my body will be requiring more T4. I'm so glad that I happened to start seeing him right before I got pregnant!<br><br>
DSS 15 comes home tomorrow from running camp so we will tell the kids then. I'm getting nervous! And I want to tell them in a fun and special way but I don't have any great ideas...anybody wanna help out? They have younger siblings at their mom's house so giving DSS 9 something that says "Big Brother" wouldn't make sense because he's already a big brother.

I cleaned my bedroom and bathroom Saturday! Yahoo!! Sun I came down with a cold<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> so I am fighting that now...<br><br>

I am so hungry, I eat a HUGE meal and I am starving 1 hour later. This is ridiculous. I have no adversions to foods at this time. If its there, I eat it.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I'm 10w2d today ... and awaiting my first midwife appointment on Wednesday. Praying we hear a heartbeat, as dh's vasectomy is the next day and I don't think I could deal with worrying about baby AND dealing with dh. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">: I have a follow-up appointment with my doctor tomorrow to see how the labs came out for my thyroid levels and to see if we need to up my meds. I had a BUSY weekend and a BUSY day today and just want to curl up on my futon and sleep, but alas, I'm providing childcare for a 2 year old, 3 of my kids have soccer camp this evening, and I have a ton of housework to do that didn't get done this weekend. Ugh.

10 weeks today! I'm in no rush for this pg to fly by. I actually hope it is long and I accomplish a lot of to-do's.<br><br>
Still sick, dizzy, disgusting breakouts. I hope this isn't an ugly pg. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I'm really surprised at how big my uterus is. I'm not showing at all but the heart beat is way out of the pelvic cavity for 10 weeks. Probably something to do with 7 babies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

I am 8w5d today. Like Strongmama, I've got a cold and I'm feeling kind of lousy.<br><br>
I had a couple days without ms, followed by 2 days of constant nausea. My stomach is like a volcano, and green beans and tomatoes, two of my favorite summer foods, don't do well when they hit the molten lava.<br><br>
My kids are sick, too, so we're just sitting around watching PBS all day. We went to California Adventure on Saturday, so it's kind of nice to have a lazy day. But I suppose I should try to rally and fix them some lunch, as Sesame Street is only on for another half hour. And they're getting a little restless, but I'm ready for a nap.

Not much time to reply, since I'm on my lunch break at work. My first day back and I have 2 weeks to set up my classroom and then the children return the 23rd. My appointment is in two days and I'm so excited. Right now, I'm just feeling extra, extra tired and still fighting nausea. I'm 9 weeks today.

My appt went well but we didn't find the heartbeat with the doppler. So we'll try again next time.

I'm just about 9 weeks. Still feeling icky, puking about once a day and overall ew feeling rest of the day. Can't get anything done and the cosmos has been working against me napping for the last 3 days in a row. I swear if I could just get a midday nap I'd feel so much better! My poor kids aren't getting exercise besides running around the couch and jumping on the bed but it is a hundred degrees outside! So even if I wasn't pregnant there isn't much we'd be doing, maybe swimming more.<br><br>
Plus we're trying to buy a house with very little money and the struggle is stressful. We're on our second bid and hoping to not get outbid again but it's looking like a strong possibility.<br><br>
Just getting through each day and trying to relish the day I'll wake up feeling good again!

Well, if the dates are right, I am 8w3d today. The need to eat everything is starting to fade, but I am still tired as all get out. If the craps table is dead, I can almost fall asleep standing up.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shake.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shake"><br><br>
Everything else is going well and I'm scheduled for an u/s on the 18th. We are all really looking forward to it. We'll be pulling DS out of school early so he can go with us to see. Afterward, we are supposed to meet with a midwife and possibly a doula to see if we will work well together and I might get my homebirth after all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

I'm 9w 5days today. Besides insane exhaustion, I feel pretty good. I have a MW appt on Thursday and hope we hear a HB. Then we are leaving for a 6 week long RV trip across America <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> My 2 and 4 year old are sooooo excited! It's something my DH and I did 6 years ago and are excited to share this experience with our little monkeys. Thank goodness for MiFi, as I will be connected to internet our whole trip <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I hope everyone else is enjoying the end of summer!

I'm 8wks 2days today. Still feeling sort of ick. Not as bad as a couple weeks ago (all day puking), but I still feel like things are landing in my stomach with a "thud".<br><br>
DD started school last Thursday, so I'm still trying to get into a routine. And now my boss has just offered me a new schedule which will require a whole new routine. Right now I work Mon-Fri 4p-midnight, which causes me to hardly see DD (she gets home at 3p and I have to leave at 3:20) and never get enough sleep (I get home at 12:30 and then get up at 6a to get DD ready for school). So a 8a-4p schedule will be AWESOME, however my off days will be Mon & Tues, which means I'll miss DD's Saturday soccer games. (That's really the only downside, I guess). I don't know...I've been on this schedule for so long that I guess I'm just afraid of change. This all has nothing to do with pregnancy, except that I'm tired and emotional....<br><br>
I have my 1st appt on Friday. DP is taking a long lunch so he can go too. Last time we were pretty laissez-faire (because it was out 2nd) and he didn't go, and then I was a complete wreck waiting for the U/S because I was convinced something was going to be wrong and I was there alone.<br><br>
Ugh, it's SO HOT HERE...I can't wait until it gets cooler. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

8w 1d today! Feeling pretty yucky still.. worse then the weeks before this I think.<br><br>
Didn't some of you say you had your worst time around 8 weeks and then started to feel a bit better? Maybe?<br><br>
I had a plan to get a lot done today - got nothing done at all. I had a headache last night all night finally started going away this morning but I felt drained. Talked to my mom today who is helping provide care to my beloved Aunt who as at home with hospice care and not much longer to live. I deal with that ok most days but hearing my mom who was obviously having a hard day today really made hit me hard again.<br><br>
After a good cry about that and just feeling bad and stressed in general I managed to have what turned out to be a very peaceful nap and I am now dressed and have to do pick up DD from daycare already! So much for getting something done today (supposed to be working at home getting ready for next semester and our upcoming trip) but at least I feel a bit more able to cope for the evening then I did earlier today.<br><br>
EARLY weds morning we leave for a trip up to an Island in the St. Lawrence riverway in Canada. My stepmom has a cabin on a Island up there and it is wonderful. I am starting to really worry about the plane travel/car drive but I am hoping that being able to hangout on a hammock at the tip of a island and let other people deal with all the cooking etc. will help. I need to get out my house where I just feel bad all day.

I'm at about 7 weeks 1 day today and feeling pretty bad. Tired, nauseous and having lots of food aversions. I'm really hungry, but everything just sounds so gross, even healthy things I normally like, i.e. brown rice and avocado. Just thinking about food grosses me out!<br><br>
I know this is just a phase and it will pass, but it is a doozy!<br><br>
My first prenatal appointment is tomorrow! Don't think I will be getting an ultrasound or hearing the heart beat or anything fun like that until later though.
