Hi everybody! Looks like this thread is fairly old, but just in case someone else is reading it, I wanted to say hello and tell everyone that I'm due on May 22, '09 with baby #3. I have two boys, ages 7 and 2, and we're really hoping for a girl. I thought it would be fun to chat with other moms who were due about the same time, so if anyone is out there, nice to meet you!
Nice too meet you To!I'm still here..Some of the other moms have unfortunately miscarried So,It was hard sharing all the joys of pregnancy when they are grieving..
I have an 18month old son and am currently 12 weeks along for the 2nd!He/She will be due on the 15th of may!I'm hoping for a girl as well(I only want 2)So no matter what this is our last!I've been really sick this time so I hoping it's a girl they say you get sicker when it's a girl(Myth maybe)Anyways I have my 1st real dr appointment today I'm so excited to hear the heart beat..When i went in they only prescribed me diclectin didn't do anything else!This time I'm going to find out the sex are you?I'm hoping to know at christmas but I'm only 19week on christmas day so i don't know maybe the doctor will be nice enough to send me a couple days early!Well I hope to talk(type)to you and hope to see you again on the boards...Lots of great moms and dads out there!
Hey Fuzzy! thanks for the response. I saw that a couple of other may moms had miscarried - I'm so sorry to hear that. I had a miscarriage before my last son was born and it was devastating - I'm feeling good about this one, though - I had an ultrasound at 8.5 weeks and everything looked great. We're definitely going to find out the sex - I want to know at exactly 16 weeks - I can't stand the suspense!
I was very very sick also - my doc gave me zofran which is a crazy strong anti-nausea drug that helped a lot, and by that I mean I was only throwing up once a day instead of 3 or 4 times. I'm feeling a bit better now, though, since I'm closing in on the end of the first trimester. This is most definitely the last one for me too - I love babies and I love being a mom but being pregnant is not my cup of tea.
Hope to talk to you soon - have a happy pregnant day and good luck at your appt!
Hey moms! I am sorry to hear of the losses. I can't imagine how difficult that is for you. I went through a scare with this one, I had low HCG levels at first b/c it was just to early to tell so they thought I had an early miscarraige and it was tough. So, sorry.
I am 12 weeks also, and due 05/12/08/ Melissa, looks like you and I are REAL close with due dates. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, any other moms out there that want to keep in close connection while we travel through the great 40 week adventure. I am going for 12 week u/s tomorrow, I am high risk so I have had several but everyone of them is a comfort to know that everything is going well. This is #2 for me, mad sickness the 1st time and I have been blessed this go around. I tell you crackers before I even hit the floor in the morning did wonders for me. Good luck!
The coolest thing happened yesterday! I went for my u/s and they needed to get the baby in a better position so they could get the accurate measurements. So, they shook my tummy up a little and the baby started moving, I could see it. This is #2 and I never saw anything like this w/ DD. So, I was just amazed at being able to see my little baby moving insude if me, he/she were kicking legs and arms were moving. It was awesome! We are all so blessed to have this little ones growing inside of us.
I am new to this thread. First I want to say how sorry I am to read about the loss of babies. I just had a miscarriage in March of this year. In September I found out I was pregnant again. I am due May 8, 2009. This will be my second live birth if I carry to term. Hopefully now that I am in my second trimester I will. My son was 4 yesterday. I am looking forward to reading each of your posts.
im so deeply sorry to the ladies that had miscarriages and best wishes to all of you! well im 14 weeks and my due date is may 6th and im so very excited!!! to those of you still posting..i have a few questions? ive been alittle nervous because like the first couple of months i was so sick and i couldnt eat without forcing myself to...but now im not really feeling pregnant although i am still really tired. Do you think that im just worrying to much? or should i be worried? im just ready to feel the baby and start showing. my next doctors app is next week...should i just wait to ask>
Hi everyone my boyfriend and i are expecting our first bundle of Joy May 26. I am very excited. We were actually going to start trying next year around that time but looks like we will have a new addition instead. I noticed that a lot of your are not first timers and wanted to know what helps when trying to sleep at night. I know your not suppose to sleep on your stomach or your back but i've never slept any other way. Please help thanks
Hi everyone. I am so glad I found you!!! I feel a little better already. My due date is May 10th and I am already nervous about my little bundle of joy. I will be turning 30 in December and never thought that I would be a mother. I thought I met the man of my dreams and suddenly changed my mind. My first pregnancy (earlier this year) ended in a miscarriage requiring me to have a d&c procedure. We were devastated. About a month and a half later my husband decided he did not want to be married anymore and decided to leave me. Two weeks later I found out I was pregnant again. He wants to have nothing to do with the child and pleaded with me to terminate the pregnancy. Needless to say, I told him I was keeping the baby and he could sign over parental right, which he quickly decided to do. I know I made the right decision by keeping my baby, but I'm alone and have no idea how to raise a baby. I am excited to see so many veteran mothers because I am going to need all the help I can get.
Hey guys!Glad to see more moms join the group!Melinda_1227 I wouldn't worry about not being sick anymore(Lucky I'd say!) Usually after the first trimester alot of symptoms start going away..Except me..I am still taking diclectin(Anti-nausea)because I was throwing up to much and I have a 18month old to look after so I went to the dr for those pills to help.I would only start to worry if there was some bleeding.
Janae25,I am so there with you belly sleeper all the way!My dr said that you can sleep on your tummy until it causes you some discomfort..which is starting for me now So what I do is I bought a body pillow and I tuck it under the belly alittle a put it between my legs and pretty much hug it all night so it kinda had the same feeling of sleeping on your stomach..I hope this helps you
Msb30,Congrats on your pregnancy,I admire your strenght...There alot of great moms on these boards to answer just about anything you have to ask and there is always someone who will just listen!My son's B-day is the 9th of may,Close to you EDDI don't know if you are a believer in zodiac but I can tell you my son he's a taurus and very bull headed..LOL
My dr.appointment went well!Heart beat was 155-160bmp good and strong,I'm excited she's sending me for my routine ultrasound the week before christmas so I will know the sex for the holidays..I can't wait to find out.Well I hope all of you moms are doing alright and I hope to get to know you guys better through our pregnancies
