this is going to be my first. I ve had two miscarriages and i m terrified that it will happen again. I m due Sept 4. I woke up to find my belly had popped on saturday. i cant help but think it seems really early to be showing. i don t want to tell anyone yet because of the losses i ve had. It s really nice to have a place to talk about this with people in the same situation
i just went today to get my hcg levels checked, cause i've had some spotting and some cramping, so i guess we will see how things go?
newmom i also have a little belly popping out! but this is my 2nd. my fat pants are starting to get a little tight! lol! and i agree its nice to have some where you can just log on and spill your feelings and nobody will say your stupid! i hope this one will go full term for you! you deserve it!
Congrats to everyone. I hope you all have great pregnancies!
This is my second - I have a 7yo girl, so I'm hoping for a boy this time. I thought I was due in August, but I had my first appt today and they said mid-September. I'm going back in 2 weeks for another ultrasound to determine due date.
Hello ladies! I am due September 28th. I am a little over 5 weeks along. I too am so worried about miscarriage. I dont feel pregnant, my boobs dont hurt as much as they did a week ago, I am a little nausous but nothing crazy. My hcg levels are great per the doctor! I too am starting to show! Is it too early? This is only my first! I am on the smaller side to begin with but I had no idea I could be showing already! The only people that know is DH, my best friend, and my mom. We are trying to figure out when we want to tell everyone else. I cannot hear the heartbeat until mid-march I am hoping we can talk them into letting us hear it earlier on!! We had one miscarriage in early sept and told everyone all about it only to lose it a few days later - very hard. We really dont want that to happen again! We are thinking of waiting until we hear the heartbeat before telling anyone. What are all of you doing?
Well I went for what I thought was going to be my first appt last monday. Which turned out to be a silly questionaire with the nurse. I was hoping I would hear a heartbeat or something but it was not. I have to go an have some blood work done, then I will see the dr on Feb 11th. All the questions were like when was your last period, How are you feeling what type of prenatal vitamins are you on, what genetic problems run in your family etc. I was disappointed I guess that nothing else was done. I'm sure they have their reasons for initiating your prenatal care this way, but it was different then when I had my son almost 6 years ago. I also think I have a pooch popping out, someone asked me yesterday If I was expecting? I could not help to smile and beam. Then I double check myself and wonder if I'm gaining too much weight. But according to the Drs scale I lost 7 lbs since my last visit in Sept. Some of my pants are tighter, my bra definitaly is I have already bought another bra for comfort. My nausea never seems to be giving up, moments I feel okay. Then other times I'm heading to the bathroom. I personally have a count down until week 13 where i'm hoping the morning sickness will vanish instantly. LOL today I'm at 9 weeks so I have 4 more weeks to go "I can do this" To all the other moms out there who is going through the same thing "WE Can Do This" I also think tonight Dh and I finally agreed on a female name Lydia Lynne but we are also going to keep looking but the main thing is we agreed simultanously. lydia is such a pretty name i like it. any ways i'm getting carried away. I wish everyone the happiest pregnancy of all to everyone out there. Talk to you all soon.
Hello to all the expecting moms and moms trying to conceive I'm Tiffany and am due around Sept 13 with my 2nd child(according to the due date calculator). I have a 2 1/2 year old son and have a bad memory on what happens at each appointment with the doctor so I'm hoping everyone can help me out. I have my first doctors appointment on Monday and was wondering what will be occuring at this appointment? I know the usual weight mesurement and urine sample but what else? When will they listen for the heartbeat and do a sonogram?
my doctor told me i don t need to go back till my second trimester. thats not till the beginning of march, with a belly already showing i want to at least tell my family cause i don t know how to hide it anymore. someone asked me yesterday if i was pregnant..... will the doctor think i m nuts if i go in early just to make sure things look alright before i share my news? I had this great idea that i wasnt going to tell anyone till april fools day... haha... baby has another idea. apparently my growing belly won t wait that long. I guess i should get used to someone else calling all the shots already.
We just found out we're expecting baby #2. We have a daughter that's 2. I have already told all of our friends and families. I have already seen the baby but only because I had to have an ultrasound of my bladder for reasons other than being pregnant but I was so excited cause it was the first time that me being pregnant again really felt real. This pregnancy is already way different than my first. I am having just about every symptom there is this time around and with my first I had none. I wonder if before it was cause I just stayed home while Dh worked and now I go to school full-time and take care of our 2 yr old, who's got a case of the terrible 2's really bad. I have'nt been to the obgyn yet but from my ultrasound last week of my bladder she said I was at least 6-7 wk. so i'm 7-8wks now. Congrats to everyone!
