Congrats to you all!!!!!!
My due date is Nov. 1. I just found out yesterday and I am excited, nervous, etc. I have a 10 yr old, so this is pretty much all new to me (again). My husband is so excited (his first). Any (interesting) suggestions on how to tell the in-laws?
Well I told my in-laws last night. We already have a 23 months old. I happened to come across a tshirt on the clearance rack a few months back that said "only child" which was crossed out and beneath it said "big brother". Even though I wasn't pregnant at the time, we were trying. And for 2$ I figured it didnt matter if he outgrew it. So last night was my MIL's birthday and they all came over to the house for some cake and icecream, and my son was dressed in his declarative tshirt. It took them over 30 minutes to realize what his shirt said and even then they weren't sure what was going on. But they loved it and were super excited!
Mommy Moss that was a cute way to inform the inlaws. We still haven't told db's parents yet. My Mum knows and is elated. He knows that as soon as his parents know the whole city will know. We are trying hard to wait and tell people a bit later, at least once the blood work is in and I go back to see the doctor end of the month.
Ashley, seems we may be close to delivering the same time!!! How exciting!
I started Week 5 this past Wednesday, so I'm almost 5 1/2 weeks already. I read ahead to see what will happen with lil kiddo next week. By week sick there will be a teeny tiny heart beat, and kiddo will only be the size of a apple seed!!! So incredible!!!
Was very tired at work today, I nearly fell asleep a couple times at my desk. I decided to take home some work this weekend to play a bit of catch up. Been in a lot of meetings and training sessions this week.
Hello ladies, first let me say CONGRATS! I just found out I'm pregnant and cannot be any happier. My estimated due date is November 11th. My boyfriend and I were not trying but deep down we both wanted to so bad, financially things aren't what we'd like and I'm still attending school, but when is the right time?!?! Since Thursday when I found out I have done so much research! I can't believe how much info is out there...thank GOD! I'm waiting for my first doctors visit before I tell my family. I would like the ultrasound picture as part of my "big reveal". I am 26 years old but my dad still considers me his baby, so I need to really plan out how I will let him know. Its kind of freaking me out! Lol. But I think he'll be excited once the shock wears off. Oh, and just a little off-handed info, my boyfriend picked out my profile name...and I can't seem to change it! He is a dork sometimes, lol. Have a great week ladies!
Hi guys, Sexi - welcome! I know what you mean about letting your SO choose your screen name, I could never give my husband that kind of power unless I wanted to world to know me as sugarbutt or something way more obscene! And I wanted to let you know that Im still in school too working on my masters so don't worry too much about that, you will work it out.
Anyways, when i say I am tired, that is the understatement of the century. I am so tired ALL the time. Yesterday we slept in late because of the time change and everything got up about 9, made breakfast, and was ready to go back to bed again. Instead we went to the mall to get a few things, and I actually sat at the play area with my son while my husband had to shop. I was so fatigued that I felt almost outside of my own body, and I went to sleep the second we came home. Then I went back to bed last night at 8:30 and I woke up at 6 this morning still sleepy! This is nuts!
I completely agree with you, Moss. Not only am I tired all the time, I can't wake up! Definitely in a fog. But, I am counting my blessings as I am not sick! However, my new best friend, besides my bed, is my bathroom!
Congratulations to everyone!!!
I just took my HPT yesterday, and got a positive!!! My husband and I are so excited. He is 24 and I am 23, and this will be our first baby. The only real symptoms I've had so far are being REALLY tired, and burping all the time. I swear, I knew I was pregnant as soon as I started burping after I ate or drank anything (very out of the ordinary)! My due date is Nov. 14th!
Mommyslb... I too am lucky that so far I haven't been sick. I hope it stays that way. I am at week 6 right now. My new best friend is also the bathroom!!!
Welcome to the new mommys to be!!! It's exciting times for all of us!
Hi all! Congrats all around! I just found out I'm preggo and am waiting for my 1st doc appt this coming Tuesday.. can't come soon enough! It will be our first baby, my husband and I have been trying for almost 2 years & we're ecstatic that it finally happened I'm 27 and will be due November 20th. Symptoms so far are mild cramping, fatigue, sore boobs.. nothing much else yet! Apparently all normal symptoms, but I'll feel better after my blood test. Hope you're all doing well so far!
Moss--lol, reading that made me laugh, I walked away for a minute and when I came back he had it already set up. He tries to take what little power he can get!
I did not think I would be this tired so early in the preg. I read that working out helps with this so I'm still working out 4x a weeks. I have been going to bed by 9...usually it wouldn't be until midnight...and its so hard to wake up in the morning. I gave up my usual 10 cups of coffee so that is hardest is the morning. Everyday during my lunch at work, I start getting the dizziness and the nausea. I haven't thrown up but I think its working its way to that soon enough.
I am so happy and can't wait to have my little watermelon belly. Have a great Sunday ladies.
