Hi everyone! I'm expecting my first around Jan. 21st. Just wanted to join the club
I had my first sonogram today!!! Everything was fine and I saw and heard the heartbeat! YaY!!!!!!!! What else is going on with everyone else?
I'm due January 12th 2010 with my first. I'm so excited but still so nervous. My first appt is 11 June. I'm hoping everything is ok with the baby. Me and my husband are both in the Air Force and I work in Vehicle Maintenance and there's a lot of fumes and chemicals in the air so I have a high risk for miscarriage and what not, but I do work in the office and have been banned from going on to the shop floor. So wish me lucks girls that everythings ok and is going as planned. It does help that I still have random nausea and my chest hurts horribly also that I have a little bump starting to grow. But until I'm out of the woods in the 2nd Trimester I'm still going to be nervous. I just have to make it to June 30th!

By our calculations - We could be due anywhere between December 28th and January 10th. My first appointment is not until the 29th. I wanted to wait until the first trimester was over and the doctor's office didnt think this was out of the norm. We've told a total of 3 people and plan on sharing the news 4th of July.
My hubbie & I have been married for 2 years, and this is our first child.
I'm really excited & have been reading as much as I can on the subject, however there's still so many questions.
I'm working - but my mind has been elsewhere lately. I wish I could sleep all day!
Have you started buying anything yet? I dont want to buy too many useless things.
Have you started showing yet? My belly's still fairly small - but my hubbie & I can tell. Also the lovies (Lovehandles) I worked so hard to get rid of are now back. Oh well! Well worth it right?

A little long....
So I had my first Appt yesterday and it went great. The baby is 1.3 inches long and growing normally. I'm so happy everything was ok. We got our first picture of the baby it looks like a Teddy Gram. When we looked on the screen for movement the baby was moving all around so now me and my husband call it out little dancing teddy bear. It was so amazing to see my baby moving. The Dr. said since everything is perfect and nothing was wrong that I have a less likely chance of miscarrying now and I should be fine, but of course until I make it to the 2nd trimester I'm going to worry.
I went out and bought my first neutral outfit for the baby it is of course yellow and has little ducks all over it.
And to help with nausea eating every hour or other hour has helped me a lot. I just eat something small like crackers or a some sun flower seeds. I've been getting heartburn with eating anything tums will be become your best friend if they aren't already they alsp help a little with nausea.
Good luck ladies!
I'm 19 and this is my first and my fiance's second, he is 29. I'm so nervous. Based on my last period, which was very light and short, on April 20th, they say my edd is Jan. 24th, but he and i both think i'm either farther along or carrying 2. We dont find out till the ultrasound 4 week from now. We did not plan this at all, but we are both very excited. He is so amazing, even before getting pregnant, i wake up to "good morning beautiful" everyday. We have been together for 1 year and it is the best relationship i've had. But i'm just so nervous. We have almost absolutely nothing for the baby, all we have is a cradle which my mom's friend gave us. He lost his job a few days after we found out i was pregnant, so money is TIGHT. I'm so afraid we won't be able to afford the things we need before the baby comes. We don't even have a car. I'm supposed to be meeting with dhs for insurance and food stamps but even then idk if we can afford the baby stuff. Any suggestions besides thrift stores? thats the only answer we've been given so far.
Sorry so long. First time jitters I guess. I would've gone crazy already if it wasn't for him.

Hi Sandra! Good to hear from you! It sounds like everyone is doing well! I am good too, except on Friday I started having a few strong cramps, I called my dr and have been resting ever since. Then today, just now, I started spotting a little and I am having light cramps, so I am scared. Is light pink spotting normal? I have read that it is, but I am scared and nervous, I am 8 weeks and 2 days now. I am going to see my dr tomorrow but has anyone experienced pink spotting before?
And the military girl that called her baby a teddy gram is hilarious!!! It kind of DOES look like that in my sonogram too! :-)
Hello Cynthalia,I would not worry about the spotting,sometimes it is normal unless it is very heavy I myself experiecing a little spotting too and my Doc say as long as it's not haevy bleeding and bad cramps I should be fine, I have a ultrasound for July 1,what about have you done a sonogram yet by the way I am also 8 weeks and few days try not panic and worry too much stay in bed as long as you can and rest rest rest,I am 36 and time is not that good and I had 3 miscarriages before this pregnancy I am praying everything goes well. Drink plenty water trust me it can help with the cramping, no lifting and try not to have intercourse for a little while that is what I am doing let me know how you are doing.Sandra
