LoL, "wow" is right! Well, I can't really help it... if I don't eat every hour and a half-2 hours, nausea sets in. I'm an average size woman and I always said that I wouldn't become a whale when I became pregnant....not that I will lol but hey, at this point, it's about not being nauseous since I work full-time. I'm not eating fastfood and soda. I'm eating pretty healthy, just alot lol... if it's what my body needs, so be it. I guess I'll have lots of work after April lol
by the way, is anyone else afraid of breastfeeding? lol
I really want to since it's best but I've heard so many horror stories about the pain, sores, cracks, yikes!!
so I'm getting close to 14 weeks, still nauseous and still having headaches.
I still think it's a tad soon for registries. I'm not finding out the sex so I'll keep things neutral. In the meantime, I'm researching products...comparing carseats and strollers...
why are there so many options?!?
This is also my first child so I'm not even 100% sure about what I even need lol
Yeah, I'm also scared to breastfeed...some of those pictures in the baby books of red, sore, cracked nipples are terrifying! On the other hand, breast milk is the best source of nutrition and the best way to build your baby's immune system! But HEY, maybe just maybe the negative side of breastfeeding won't happen to any of the 2011 mothers... lol (wishful thinking)! Apparently, my prenatal pills were making me sicker so my doctor suggested Flinstones Complete....Can you believe it!! I wanted to laugh at them but when I compared the two, Flinstones Complete actually has all of the same vitamins and minerals a prenatal pill has...and I feel so much better! Anywho... ttyl
APRILAAG, my doc suggested the same thing to me and I laughed too. He just said as long as I'm taking something it didn't really matter what it was. But he also said that if I couldn't take it, not to stress too much because we typically get most of what we need anyway just to eat as healthy as possible. I'm a little nervous about breastfeeding too but hopefully there are enough tips and ointments out there to keep things from getting too...bad. :-)
Hi there! I'm due on April 10th also! This is our first and we're so excited. Everything is going well for us as I hope the same for you. I'd also like to chat with someone due around my time too. Also, I'd be interested in chatting with someone whose done IVF.
so 15 weeks this week yay
anyone else feeling the stretching ligament craps?
also feeling out of breath after small tasks
and even having some difficulty putting my socks on!!
its a small belly but its not easy to work around lol
Diana, I can relate. Its different than a "fat roll" because its hard! LOL! Its hard to put my socks on, bend over, and a number of other things. I haven't felt the ligament cramps yet. What does that feel like?
ok so im about 16 wks give or take and this is my 2nd child this preg is so much diff ... im depressed an mad and weepy and i think im losing my mind...i thought id be happy and all the "fun" preg feelings.... but i cant seem to get a hold of my self.... im not sure if i came here looking for answers or advice or if just to hear im not losing it....
so the stretching feels like period cramps lol
at least thats what i think it is!
keehmer-you're definietly not alone! im 15 weeks today and its my first. Im not exactly a happy and excited pregnant lady. im pretty sick and im gaining so much weight! my problem is nausea but only relieved by eating. so i was at the doctor on monday and he says that my condition is impossible so according to him, i eat due to stress and i only make myself sick. so all im doing is hurting myself and my baby. so he recommends i see a therapist!
can u imagine what a mess i was...
so hang in there....im trying to get through all this crap too
My first Child is due April 4, 2011. I am proceeding on 21 weeks. Found out I will be having a sweet baby girl. I was lucky I didn't have any issues in the beginning of my pregnancy besides being exhausted and overwheled with joy. My birthday is the 17 of April and I turn 22...wish me luck I don't go over my due date and give birth on my own birthday.
