View Full Version : Welcome December 2010 babies!
04-20-2010, 04:08 PM
I guess I'll get this thread started. I had a positive test yesterday after work and again this morning. I couldn't believe my eyes. I called the Dr. this morning and made my first appointment for April 29. I'm in shock and can't believe it actually happened. I'm worried about all of the possibilities and the chance for miscarriage. I've had cramping since last Monday, but the lady at the Dr. today said it was normal. I shouldn't be concerned unless I start spotting. I'm hoping and praying for a healthy pregnancy and baby. I am also wondering when we should tell people. I told my husband that I want to wait a while to make sure things are going ok. I think he's ok with that, but hasn't said much since finding out last night. I'm really worried about telling on of our closest friends. They have been trying for 6 years without luck. I know how depressed she gets when she finds out about another person being pregnant, and I hate to do that to her. I can't and don't want to take this back though, so I hope I won't crush her. I look forward to getting to know others that follow. Welcome and good luck!

Well, I can't say I have actually "confirmed" my pregnancy, but I am really hoping that I am! My period is currently 4 days late, but I have been getting negative test results. So frustrating! I have many symptoms, but I don't want to get my hopes up either. I have tingling breasts, fatigue, queeziness and headaches. What do you think?? Should I talk to the doctor and have a blood test done?
04-22-2010, 09:53 AM
Are your periods usually off? My can range anywhere from 28-35 even 40 days. I didn't usually test until I was at least a week late. That's what I did this time too. I had a friend tell me she couldn't believe I could wait. The tests usually say if you get a negative result to wait a week and test again. After that if you still have started and you still have a negative test, then call your doctor.
I know what you mean about getting your hopes up. I would tell my friend (the one mentioned above) about symptoms like you have and she would keep telling me, "I think you're pregnancy!" It was hard having someone who was pregnant telling me she thought I was and then it turned out that I wasn't. My husband finally said that he wished she would stop getting my hopes up and I told her that. She has stopped and doesn't yet know we are expecting. Good Luck and keep my posted=)

Hi ladies! So excited that this board has officially started. I'm just over 8 weeks, due Dec. 3. We had our second u/s today (we get more because we're seeing a reproductive endo.) and everything was perfect. HB was 161, and it was measuring slightly ahead. Now we move on to the regular OB for the next appointment.
As for our background, we started trying a little over a year ago, and ended up at the fertility specialist because I wasn't ovulating and my hubby had some lazy sperm. We got pregnant on our own in October, but had a m/c at 9 weeks. We tried clomid and iui in March, and were successful! We're still very worried about another m/c but so far everything looks perfect, and I feel different than last time, so we have a good feeling.
What are your due dates?
04-23-2010, 10:16 AM
Hi Julie and those to follow,
I was wondering how you were doing. I followed the TTC monthly posts for a while but never commented. We had been trying since July 4 of 2009, and I just had a positive home pregnancy test on Monday. I go to the doctor on the 29th of April. I'm figuring our due date is Dec. 20. I've been worrying like crazy that things are going ok. This is our first pregnancy and we haven't told anyone. I am wanting to wait until I go to the doctor to confirm and talk to her. Every little pain makes me worry. I've been reading and that makes me worry. It seems like I can't think of anything else unless I'm really really busy. I can't imagine the worry that will take place once this little bean is actually here. I don't want to get too excited about it in case something happens. When you m/c had your pregnancy been going good or were there concerns? I feel like I'm going crazy and am so excited to have someone who else to talk to about this journey. Good Luck!!

I got my first undeniable positive test on Wednesday last week (April 14) - 2 days after my "missed period", which usually fluctuates...so off to the doc to confirm.
Got in to see the doctor on Monday and they confirmed via urine test. She also confirmed the due date I had gotten: Dec 17, 2010. Plus, took several vials of blood and arranged for an ultrasound on Friday May 7 - right at the end of my 8th week.
I'm having a lot of the same concerns as everyone who has already posted. Miscarriage being #1. Especially after getting on a bunch of forums and seeing how (seemingly) often it happens.
But - my doctor reassured me that MY pregnancy wasn't like anyone elses' pregnancy. Just like the baby developing inside me, these 9 months will be like no one elses'. Even future pregnancies of mine will be nothing like this one and I shouldn't worry as everything checks out normal for now.
Still, I've decided to hold off on the announcement to friends and family until after the ultrasound confirms everything is running along smoothly. My husband seems to prefer to tell everyone now, but is willing to wait it out a couple of more weeks for me.
Congrats to everyone -

cwdana-Great birthday-That's my bday too. Is your name Dana? That's my name. Interesting... My husband hasn't had much to say since we had a positive test. He's been pretty busy with work and stuff at home and we haven't seen each other too much.
Last night out of nowhere he says, "I can't wait anymore...I have to tell someone!" I asked him who and he said his mom. I couldn't believe that. I would like to tell the families on Mother's Day by giving them a card and picture frame with "Grandma" on it. It's the first grandchild for my parents and the first blood grandchild for my in-laws. They have step-grandchildren. I don't know if we will tell them then because we will just be 9 weeks.
I thought about waiting until Father's Day, but we don't usually see MIL then. The dads are usually busy and it's not a huge day. Hmmm... I think I'll wait until I go to the dr. and see how things are going. Then I'm sure we'll decide.
04-23-2010, 05:45 PM
Congrats to everyone!
Distamm, google is your worst enemy. At least it's mine. I google every feeling I have and I swear all of the negative results come up first. With the first pregnancy, there was a heartbeat at 5w5d, and then none at 9. Everything seemed to be going fine. It was a missed miscarriage, so I had no symptoms. However, I just feel different this time. But I really worry when I feel sick one day and then not the next. I don't think we ever won't worry. I'm excited to have people on this board to talk to. That will help with the worrying and stress!
04-25-2010, 07:57 AM
Found out last week and due 12/27! I still have to call the Dr. Office tomorrow to make the first appointment. I too have a friend that has been trying for several years with no luck and I'm nervous as to how she will react!
04-25-2010, 08:22 AM
After having trouble getting pregnant, and having a miscarriage, it was really hard for me to hear that other people were pregnant. I had two of my best friends get pregnant....one on her first try, and the other after 3 months. There were also 6 women at work who were pregnant. Even though I was happy for them, I just could not help but feel jealous. My advice is to tell your friends who have been having trouble, but don't discuss the pregnancy with them unless they ask. My friends were pretty good about that. I have to be honest that I sort of avoided talking to them for a while after I miscarried, because it was too hard to hear about pregnancy at that time. So be patient with your friends if they don't want to talk to you about it, and don't be offended. Ultimately, I'm sure they will be very happy for you, and it's much better to be upfront with them than to tell other people and try to hide it from them for a while.
04-25-2010, 08:26 PM
Have gotten 2 positive results now.. believe our dd will be December 28 if I did the math right.. calling the dr in the morning to make an appointment. My first child, Maddison, was born last June and will be 10 months old tomorrow. So if I did the math right they will be 18 months and 2 days apart that is crazy!! This is definitly unexpected, but very welcomed too! Good luck to all of you! =)
04-26-2010, 10:33 AM
Maddison-My younger brother and I are 18 months apart. My parents were shocked they had gotten pregnant so quickly because my mom had problems getting preggo with me. At the time she was nervous, but says that's how she would do it and recommend to anyone. Growing up, we were always doing things together and people thought we were twins. Good Luck!
Last night I had a dream that I was starting to spot, so now I'm freaking out that it could come true. Maybe the dream happened because I'm worried about it happening. Has anyone else had symptoms come and go? Last week when I first found out, I had symptoms and then they seemed to go away. This morning I woke up and was sooo dizzy. I'm guessing that it's normal to feel different things on different days.
My husband who didn't say much since finding out, insisted that we start cleaning the house and getting rid of stuff. We live in the house he grew up in so until this past Christmas we had and still have a few of his sister's items from her childhood. He went through his old room about a year ago, but didn't feel the need to get rid of too much. Yesterday we cleaned it out. The backseat of my car is full of clothes to donate and I'm not sure how many bags he took to the dumpster. Feels good to look at the room and know that it needs paint and carpet and then it's a much better as guest room. I think I'm going to have to move my scrapbook stuff into there too. I told him that we have plenty of time and I don't want to do too much in case something happens.
Hope everyone else is feeling well and doing good.
04-29-2010, 12:41 PM
Hello everyone, found out I am pregnant with our 1st child and my EDD is Dec 20th. Very excited, but I didn't expect it to happen so fast... We had just started TTC. I can't wait to see the little one on ultrasound, have one scheduled for May 11th. Aside from the nausea and fatigue it doesn't seem real yet, I just feel sick... I mean I am REALLY excited, But I didn't expect to feel so yucky. Anyone else experiencing the same?
04-29-2010, 01:45 PM
congrats arianeplus1! Yes I feel the same way. I have had much more nausea and everything with this pregnancy. I am due december 26 and this is my 2nd baby. I have had trouble eating anything without gettin sick. I am definitly getting tired of cottage cheese by now =) With my first pregnancy I was ok after the first trimester so hang in there it should get better for you and will be worth it in the end!!
04-30-2010, 09:29 AM
Arianeplus1-Congrats! That's my due date also. I am also feeling tired all the time and have nausea most days.
Julie-How are you doing? Hope all is well
I had my first dr. appt yesterday and I was given lots of information. I had a urine test, which I'm not exactly sure what they tested. I also had bloodwork and scheduled my next appt for May 26. I won't have an ultrasound until week 20-22 and that will probably be the only one unless problems arise.
I had my first crazy dreams/restless night last night. My dream was one I wanted to wake up from and when I wokd up and went back to sleep, the dream continued. There was lots happening, but the key point was that I was sterile so I was being killed. Lovely...
Congrats ladies! I am Due December 27th. I had a posotive on the 22nd and was only a day late. I think i am almost 6 weeks. My first Prenatal appt isnt until the 17th. Is that too long to wait for my first Prenatal? I have been feelibg sooo fatigued. Luckily not much morning sickness. Been cramping a little but not to much. Have any of you started showing at all? Any weird cravings? I have been eating like there is not tomorrow. lol! This is my 4th Pregnancy but I only have 1 son who is almost 10. So its been a while for me...=0)
04-30-2010, 02:00 PM
Crod congratulations!! No, I dont believe that the 17th is too long to wait for your first prenatal visit. I went to the dr and had my pregnancy confirmed but dont actually go into the ob for my first visit until June 2. He doesnt see patient until between 10-12 weeks. I havent had any weird cravings, I am just getting over the morning sickness and able to eat more.. and I am with you I am eating like there is no tomorrow. Although I seem to only be able to eat so much, then be stuffed and have to go back to my meal in half hour to and hour. so it really does seem as if I am always eating. lol.. no I am not showing yet. I didnt show with my daughter until right at 4 months so I believe I had awhile yet, although I have been told you do show sooner with your second pregnancy. So I guess I will wait and see. Congrats again! Hope everything is still going well with everyone else as well.
Thanks Maddison, Ok good I guess im just anxious. =0) So how far along are you? Yea your right on that..I seem to be earing like every 2 hours or more often at times. I showed right away when I had my son. LIke right at 3 months. So with this pregnancy I seem to have a nice sized little belly already. Im a little scared I might be pregnant with twins. It runs in my husbands family. I guess all I can do is wait and see.
04-30-2010, 05:16 PM
Congrats to the newbies. I'm 9 weeks today (or yesterday because I was measuring a little ahead at my last u/s). This is a nervous time for me because this is when we lost our last one, but I still feel good about this one. I am very bloated, I feel like I look 5 months pregnant, but it's not a baby bump, it's just bloat that won't go away. Since I've graduated from my RE to the OB, I have my next u/s with them on Wednesday. I'm really excited for this one because we might see the baby moving around. I'll also feel a lot more confident since we will have made it farther than last time. If all goes well, we're telling our parents on Mother's Day, but still waiting to tell friends. I told everyone right away the last time, and it was really difficult to then have to spread the bad news. My parents were pretty upset too, so I didn't want them to spend all these early weeks worrying....we're doing enough of that we don't need any help. Besides the bloatedness, my m/s seems to be disappearing, but yesterday I woke up with brand new boobs. It was like a I had a boob job overnight, it was insane. They had been growing very slowly, and I was noticing other changes, but out of nowhere they doubled I swear. I love anytime something new happens, because you know things are probably going well. I hope everyone else is doing well. Some of you are due right around x-mas!
05-02-2010, 11:58 PM
Crod, yea I guess that the best thing to do would be wait and see but I can agree that I would be anzious if twins ran in either of our families =) And to answer your question I am just over 6 weeks pregnant, my daughter Maddison was born in june 09 and it is crazy how different pregnancies can be! My morning sickness is going away but I am eating weird things that have never even looked good before haha.. just got done eating a snack of spinach dip with hawaiian bread! =) now since it is nearing midnight I think I am going to head off to bed.. Juliebean.. congrats on this baby. Your are in my thoughts and prayers that everything continues going smoothly with your pregnancy, You are lucky being able to see your baby.. my first ob visit isnt even scheduled until I am 12 weeks.. keep us updated on how everything goes!! =)
05-03-2010, 09:57 AM
Congrats Crod and Welcome!!!
Julie-glad to hear things are still going well.
My husband is ready to tell everyone our news, but I keep pushing him off until we are closer to the end of the 1st trimester. I told him to think about it like this-right now we are the only two who knows what's going on. This is the only time in our life that it will just be the three of us. Once we tell everyone, they will want a part in the baby's life. They will be asking about us, wanting to hold baby, wanting to tell us how to care for baby, and so on. I'm not saying that it's a bad thing, but let's treasure this time just for the three of us. I think he's just excited to let everyone know that his boys can swim=)
Maddison, Our DD's are only 1 day apart. Oh yea With my first pregnancy I really didnt have any symptoms besides my missed period. But this time around I am soooo tired. I mean soooo tired I just want to sleep all day! Oh and that hawaiian bread sounds sooo good, I love that one. Oh and I could not stay up till midnight even if i tried. I am in bed by 10. Last week I actually slept from 530 p.m to 530 a.m. 12 hours! I loved it! =0) I cant wait for my appt in 2 weeks. I hope the days fly by.
05-03-2010, 02:01 PM
Hi ladies! I am due Dec. 16th. I have a daughter, Mia (ME-a) who is 4. I wish everyone a happy and healthy pregnancy.
05-12-2010, 01:42 PM
Congrats mbenit4 and welcome.
We decided to tell our parents on Mother's day that we were expecting. They were surprised! I have my next dr. appt on May 26 and am waiting patiently. I feel sick most days-all day. So far I haven't actually gotten sick which I am thankful for. How is everyone else doing? Hanging in there? Having any symptoms?
05-12-2010, 05:46 PM
I was sick all day without throwing up from about 6 weeks until Monday. I will be 11 weeks tomorrow. All of a sudden, on Monday and Tuesday I felt great...more energy, I didn't feel sick, and the thought of food didn't make me sick. I feel exhausted again today, but still not sick. We had an appt. last week at 10 weeks where we saw and heard the heartbeat, and we could actually see the baby jumping around in there. It was really awesome to see. We're used to getting u/s every 2 weeks because we were seeing the RE, but now our next appt. isn't until 14 weeks and we won't have another u/s until the gender/anatomy scan between 18-22 wks. I actually caved and ordered a doppler off Amazon. I swore I would never do that because it would freak me out even more if I couldn't hear the heartbeat, but I read some really good reviews and I caved. I will let you know if it actually works and is worth it. How is everyone else doing?
Hello all, I am just about 8 weeks along now and my first appt is on Monday. I am soo excited. I hope we can hear the heartbeat. Its funny cause as soon as I hit 6 weeks I have been feeling queezy. Just the thought of food made my stomache feel icky. I am not as tired as I was a month ago but it hastn completley gone away. So does anyone know if regular soda is better than diet soda. I mean I know caffeine isnt really good period but I did hear that diet isnt good when your pregos.
05-12-2010, 09:00 PM
Hi everyone. Thought I would join our group. I am about 7 1/2 weeks due December 25th. I have twins that are 11, a 9 yr.old and a 6 yr. old. All girls. We had been trying for about a year. I was diagnoised with PCOS last May and didn't think I would be able to conceive again. Thankfully we did. I have been sicker with this one than the girls. I had my first dr. appt. last Monday. They did a u/s and found one sac. It was hard to see the baby. Next time there should be better pictures. I am 36 so I am classified as "advanced maternal age". Not sure how I feel about that. Maybe it just means I am smarter that I was the first time I got pregnant. The girls are excited. They want a baby brother. My husband is a little concerned about all the things that could go wrong but I told him I was fine with everything and for him to stop worrying. What will be, will be. There is no going back now. The baby will be loved no matter what. It will be nice going through this time with all of you. Hope everyone is feeling good.
05-12-2010, 09:10 PM
So I am about 8 weeks now and the nausea is a little better.. still seems to come and go though. I am still very tired but I have also attributed that to having a 10 month old that I chase around all day as well! We dont get to go into the dr until June 2nd, so we have 3 weeks from today. We are very excited to see the little one for the first time.CROD- I can honestly say that I am not sure about if diet or regular soda is better when you are pregnant. I have been drinking Diet but I am interested in knowing if you find out the answer to your question. I hope that everyone is doing well and hopefully everyone is getting over the morning sickness and the fatigue. I am hoping before long mine will go away completely. I sure dont remember being this sick the last time. I have been having pains in my lower stomach and sides that the doctor said was from ligaments and everything stretching has anyone else experienced those? Was wondering if anyone had any good things to do in order to help with them.. hope everyone is good and to hear from you soon!! =)
Mccrislip congrats...How soon did you start showing with your twins? You are about 2 days difference from my due date. =0) Do twins run in your family? Are you hoping for a boy? Madddison ==> I will definatley look into the soda thing some more. I have been getting cramps almost every night. Sometimes even in my back, I wonder if thats normal.
05-14-2010, 01:15 PM
Found out April 18 that we are surprisingly expecting. This was not planned, but is very much wanted. I am due December 27. Had an u/s Tuesday at 7 weeks 1 day and found out that our surprise baby is actually 2 surprise babies! We're having twins! I am almost 8 weeks pregnant with baby number 3 and 4 and showing quite a bit already!
05-14-2010, 03:30 PM
Congrats Tigereyez!!! How exciting-twins.
It amazes me everyone who has had an ultrasound this early. My dr. told me that I would only have one around 20 weeks. Makes me wonder how they are going to make sure everything is ok. I guess there are other ways. I understand if you are high risk, but I guess I'm a little jealous that I won't get to hear the heartbeat until I'm half way through.
@tigereyes Oh wow that is awesome. I am sure you are very excited. I found out I was pregnant april 21 and I am due the 27th of December as well. My appt is on Monday and I cant wait. So I guess we will both be 8 weeks on Monday. I wish you the best and let us know how everything is going. =0)
05-14-2010, 05:15 PM
Congrats to everyone. Glad that more people are joining this board. I wanted to let you know that if anyone was planning on ordering a heartbeat doppler, mine came and works great! It's a sonoline b 3mhz fetal doppler. I ordered it from amazon for $62. I thought that was a pretty good price for my sanity. After my m/c I've been super nervous. I feel much better now that we've made it to 11 weeks and everything seems great, but now that my appts are 4 weeks apart, I have so many worries. I found the heartbeat the second I put it on yesterday (although some don't hear until 12-13 wks) and it was the best sound ever. It put me in the best mood. The only issue is that the number isn't exactly accurate I think because it's early and sort of faint. It fluctuates a lot, but I've read some reviews and that seems normal. I'm counting the heart rate as the highest number it climbs up to, which is right in line with what it was at my last appt.
05-16-2010, 01:00 PM
wow twins that is so exciting.. congrats tigereyez!! I know what you mean dlstamm about not getting an ultrasound yet.. i have not even had the first prenatal appointment other then him doing bloodwork to confirm my pregnancy I still have to wait just over another 2 weeks for that.. he doesnt see you until 10-12 weeks. But that is ok I guess..Lots of due dates around Christmas as mine is.. is everyone hoping to miss christmas or hoping for a christmas baby?? =) hope everyone is feeling well!!
05-17-2010, 09:53 AM
I'm hoping to be early by a few weeks-as long as the baby is ok. My bday is a week before Christmas and I hated it as a child. I still kinda dislike it. My loving husband always forgets it or says that it just snuck up on him. I always felt "cheated" when I was a child, so I hope this baby comes earlier in Dec. so there is more of a separation between the bday and Christmas. I guess we'll see though. God has it figured out for me, so I try not to worry.
I had my first prenatal yesterday and my doc moved my due date up so this saturday I will be 10 weeks. So my due date now is December 19th and I hope I go closer to the begining of Decmeber. But like you said dlstamm God has it figured out so no worries. =0) We didnt get to hear the heart beat but we got to see my it...It was such a relief. Now to wait until June 18th. =0)
Hey everyone, You guys have been pretty quiet. How is everyone feeling? My fatigue is almost completley gone away I am so glad its not how it was like 6 weeks ago. Really super tired all day. And yes I have heard that regular soda is definatley better for you than diet during pregnancy.
05-25-2010, 05:27 PM
It is really quiet! I hope everyone is feeling well. I will be 13 weeks on Thursday, I'm SO excited to be going into the 2nd trimester. It's a relief that the risk of m/c goes down, and also I feel great! I'm still tired, but not as exhausted, and I haven't been sick in a few weeks now. My latest is that I have some heartburn, but I will take that any day over being sick. I had to come out at work because I am 100% showing. I'm a teacher and I'm trying to hide it from my kids for as long as possible. It's been pretty hot, but I wear my jacket all day when I'm inside. They just had family life ed. a couple weeks ago (aka sex ed) and I think some of them caught on to how babies are made. I feel like they will look at me differently haha.
Out of curiosity, does anyone have any gut instincts about what they're having? My DH and I are both convinced it's a boy. No real reason, we're just so sure ,that we will be shocked (though equally happy) if it's a girl.
Yea I cant wait to get into my 2nd Trimester too because of the risk of m/c gonig down and alot of the fatigue and naseau go away too. JuieB are you in maternity clothes yet? I still have been using my regular pants but using a rubber band for now. I think in like a couple of weeks or 3 weeks I will be in maternity clothes. =0) In the beggining I swore I was having a boy but then I started breaking out real bad like I was back in high school and I guess he myth is that when your having a girl you break out like that. So I dont know what im thinking now. lol! Are any of you going to find out the sex soon, like in a couple of weeks? My sister found out what she was having at week 14.
05-27-2010, 03:16 PM
glad to hear that everyone is doing well and that the morning sickness is getting better. Crod you are right I asked my dr at our appointment yesterday and diet soda is definitly out until I have the baby she made it very clear that regular is MUCH better lol... With that said out due date was confirmed and is dec 26 and we got to see our little miracle on ultrasound, which always amazes me!! I cant wait to be into the second trimester so that the rest of the nausea will go away.. I am a few days away from 10 weeks so I have a little bit for that still.. going to be busy planning my daughters 1st birthday party which is the end of june but will try to keep checking in every once in awhile.. hope everyone continues doing well!!
05-27-2010, 04:04 PM
I'm not in maternity yet, I've been wearing all of my pants unbuttoned and some even unzipped with the be band from target. It's just like wearing maternity without paying for the clothes. I did buy one shirt and one pair of maternity capris. I will probably wear the pants soon, but don't think I'll need the tops yet, they're pretty big.
I know everyone is different, but just to give you some home Maddison09, my m/s disappeared at 10 weeks with the exception of maybe 2 or 3 mornings.
My DH doesn't want to find out the sex, but I really do, so I think we will either do the popular cake idea or have the dr. put it in an envelope so we can open it with family or go to a nice dinner or something and open it. That makes it more of a fun surprise so maybe he will go for that instead of waiting. I am fine with not knowing now, but once I know it's a possibility there is no way I will be able to wait.
What is a be band? Yea most of the maternity shirts I have wont get used till later. This is probably a really stupid questin but what does DH stand for? Im just full of questions today but what is the popular cake idea? I really like the envelops idea though I might have to copy you with that idea. Yea there is no way I can wait till D day to find out...=0) Have any of you been getting pretty bad back pain?
05-28-2010, 06:25 PM
Sorry, I've been on the ttc boards for way too long, so I got all the lingo. DH stands for dear husband. The be band is the target version of the bella band. You can wear it over your pants unbuttoned. http://www.target.com/BeBand-Maternity-Band-Ebony/dp/B001DDRYCU I highly recommend it.
Also, the cake idea is that you have the dr. put it in an envelope and you ask a friend, family member, or bakery to make you a white cake dyed pink or blue, so you have to cut into it to find out. It would be fun if you got people together to do it. Sorry, I've been reading these boards for a long time, and forget that not everyone has :)
Another great site if none of you haven't checked it out is thebump.com. I just read the boards, and don't comment. People can get a little mean with each other, but I've found it to be a very informative site.
No back pain for me, but I know people who have had some.
Oh its okay, Ok atleast I got the DH right, thats what I thought I stood for. =0)
Ok so imma go check out the band from Target. I could definatley use something like that. And Oooh I like the cake idea. That is sooo cute! I love it! I am definatley goin to do that. I have checked out thebumb.com I like the site but I like this site much better. So I guess some back pain is normal. Thank you for all the great info JulieB! =0)

Hi ladies! Hope all is well with everyone. It's been very quiet on this board. I go to the OB tomorrow and my DH will be joining me for the first time. We will hopefully hear the heartbeat for the first time.
I've had a horrible last week-I've been really dizzy and couldn't figure out why. After a trip to the OB and the ER in one day and a trip to my chiropractor on Saturday, they think I have an inner ear infection. The ER said my bloodwork was fine only to find out that it wasn't when I went to the chiro. Long story short, I'm on antibiotics and slowly feeling better.

Hi Ladies...I am so excited this is my first pregnancy and today I am 12 weeks..YAYYYYY....When I really think about being pregnant I get scared and excited at the same time. I've had two ultrasounds so far with strong heart beats. Thank God. It's great to know their are other women out there who want to chat about pregnancy. :)

Hi its good to know about this board. A close friend told me about this website and I just had to see for myself. I'm expecting my second child and it has been 5 years since I've been pregnant. It seems as if I'm starting all over again. So far this pregnancy been okay but being nausea in the mornings, tired at work, and sleepy when I get home is awful. My first was a whole lot different from this one. My family and friends told me it would and I'm truly a believer. Gratefully, everything is going as plan. To everyone else congratulations on your pregnancy.

so great to see this thread active still, im 27yrs old and almost 15 wks and this is my first pregnancy. ive been reading lots of different sites to get answers since most of my friends have already had their kids years ago and dont remember much about pregnancy. Is anyone else going through horrible back pain? its sometimes so bad that i cant walk for about 15min or so, im wondering if this is normal or something i should talk to my doctor about. Im also very excited to find out what it is im having. ive noticed a few posts where some have already found out but we still have not been able to. im hoping by the next ultrasound at the end of the month we will be able to tell. I also think ive started to feel the baby moving, that 'quickening' i see people posting about, but im not sure, sometimes it will feel like i just rode a rollercoaster and my stomach is doing backflips, especially when the daddy is around me and talking it gets stronger. i havent told him yet since im not sure if thats what it is so any ideas would be great :)

Where's everyone at? Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the 2nd trimester. I had my 3 hour glucose test and I'm praying and hoping that I pass this one. We started registering on Monday, but have a long way to go to finish. Other than that, I'm slowly cleaning out the room where baby will go.

We had our big anatomy scan on Tuesday, and wow was that amazing. We decided not to find out the sex, but it was still so incredibly exciting to see our healthy baby moving around. The tech even showed us some 3D/4D images which was so neat. We came back with lots of pictures. My last u/s was at 10 weeks, so it was amazing to see what looks now like an actual human in there! I could also feel the kicking while I was watching, which confirmed for me that was in fact what I was feeling, and not just gas or muscle twitching.

Hello everyone! This is my first child and I am so excited. I'm due 12/4/10 and just found out it's a girl. I'm actually enjoying my pregnancy and had little to no morning sickness in the first trimester and I feel pretty good considering my body is changing rapidly. I try to eat well but have a weakness for fast food at the moment. I'm glad that I now have people to compare stories with and am no longer on the outside looking in.

Glad to hear that everyone seems to be doing well in their second trimester. It has been awhile since I last posted anything. I wish that I could say that the morning sickness had let up but I still seem to be dealing with it daily. I have yet to gain any weight even though I am now over 17 weeks into the pregnancy I am still losing because of being so sick. Have lost almost 30lbs since we found out we were expecting again. But at the last dr app we were assured that the baby seemed to be growing well. We are still expecting the baby to be here on 12/26, the first ultrasound that we had confirmed that it would either be 12/25 or 12/26 for a due date.. hope everyone continues feeling well and to hear from everyone soon. Hopefully now that we have our daughters first birthday party done and over with things will settle down around here and I can start coming back to the board more often =)
Maddison-I am sorry to hear that your morning sickness has yet to let up. I cant believe have lost 30lbs. WOW! I have gained like 4lbs but I will find out tomorrow how much more i have gained. I hope not too much. Well I will talk to everyone soon. =0)

This board seems to have grown really quiet as of the past month or so. I thought that I would do a quick update and see how everyone was doing. We are now sure that we are expecting a little boy the end of december.. not sure of the date.. the original due date was the 25 or 26 and now they are saying he is measuring ahead of schedule so we will see if they change the dd or not. I am having less trouble with the morning sickness now and am no longer losing the weight.. I have actually gaineda whole 2 lbs now =) I hope that everyone else is doing well and hope for an update from everyone soon.
