Nessaw, I'm sorry you had a bad previous experience, I will keep my fingers crossed nothing happens until then. I want this to be as easy as possible for you.
You are sweet for checking in, but I hope there's a way I can keep an eye in yiu as well. Do you have a journal on here or anything? This isn't the end for you! Just a roadblock... I have a journal in parenting journals.
sunshine- I hadn't realized that we are almost exactly the same dates! I am 4w 5d based on lmp, but probably a few days less based on o, I just didn't track o this cycle so I'm not sure.
stillpraying- it makes me feel more confident to hear that you didn't feel sick until 6 weeks. I feel like everyone is saying they are throwing up right away at 4 weeks and makes me feel like maybe something is wrong for me, so it's nice to hear someone else didn't feel sick right away.
nessaw- I'm so sorry for you, sending you lots of good vibes and hugs
So I decided to go ahead and start taking the aspirin based on what you were all saying and researching a bit. When I get to speak with my midwife I'll ask her what she thinks for me, but for now it sounds like it can't hurt. I also bought red raspberry leaf tea but then lots of people saying it could actually be dangerous in first tri, so I'll save that for later on.
We are telling the in-laws today! We are having them over for chinese food so I went out and bought some fortune cookies and replaced the fortunes with little announcements like "you will soon take on a special new role" and "the best gifts take nine months to arrive". I'm so excited!
I didnt get sick until 6ish weeks with dd1, got sick from day 1 with dd2, and not till 9 weeks with luke. This one it started creeping up at 6 weeks but still isnt that bad. I get worried that im not sick enough lol
Red raspberry leaf tea made me super crampy with dd1 so i stopped until 3rd Trimester.
How exciting getting to announce to them! Are they the first?
You ladies are awesome for helping me feel less nervous about the nausea. I am just such a ball of nerves, I can't wait to get past this Friday because then it will be later than I was when I lost the last one. Even though I know that doesn't put me in the safe zone by any means, it'll feel a lot better.
The announcement was great! They were completely shocked, they didn't know we were trying yet or anything and they are so happy! They are very reserved though so no screaming or anything, they just really seemed to be in shock and happy.
