I'm looking for some buddies that are going through their pregnancy journey's for the first time and will be due around the same time I am.
Some info about me, I'm 22 and OH is 25. EDD is March 29, 2013. So far my main pg symptoms are MS, mild AF like cramps, mild lower back pain, and sore breasts/nipples.
I've seen you on the first tri boards, but nice to see you here too! I'm due April 9th (according to ov date). I'm 26 and dh is 25. Had one previous mc in January, so this is second pregnancy but first lo (hopefully!)
Welcome doggylover, I'm glad to see you here. Have you got your first appointment set up? I'm impatiently waiting for mine which is August 21st at 6 PM. My ob/gyn wouldn't see me until I'm at least 8 weeks pg.
I'm sorry about the hip pain you're experiencing. At least you've been able to avoid MS so far. I was actually wanting to have MS because I thought more pg symptoms would make the baby seem more real. That sure was a silly thing to wish. I'm now stuck with nausea all day and feel pretty miserable because of it.
Aww sorry you're feeling bad! Although I am in that wishing for ms stage! I'll obviously be sorry when it arrives!
I have a gp appointment on Friday to get the ball rolling, and will hopefully get an early scan - if we go by my lmp I'll be 12 weeks at start of September, but knowing when I ov means I know I'll only be 8 weeks. Will keep that under wraps though to try to get to see baby early! Will you get a scan at your first appointment?
I thought I was crazy when I was wishing for MS but from browsing around the first tri forum it seems a lot of ladies do. Now I'll be thankful when MS is gone now that I have it.
I don't know when I ov'ed so I'm not sure how far along I actually am. I did track CM but didn't do any OPK's or temp so my guess is around the 10-12 of July but how accurate that is I'm not sure.
Hopefully I'll get a scan at my first appointment but I'm not really sure what they'll do. I had to switch to a new ob/gyn so I've never even been to this office before to know how they do things. I'm just hoping it's not terrible. It always makes me nervous going to a new ob/gyn.
Luckily for me things work diff entry over here - we don't have to go to a specific ob/gyn, we just go and see our regular dr and then most care is from hospital. It seems a lot more complicated in the states though, having to choose obgyn and birthing centres and things. I don't know how I'd cope with that at the minute!
I'm sure you're new dr will be fine, and if not would you be able to change again?
Ugh I have been gagging so much today, any little thing can set me off, like tossing out the left over salad. I've been starving these last few days as well. Can't wait to get home from my holiday (later today) and eat eat eat! The friend who I am on holiday with is a tiny tiny human who barely eats at all. Feel like such a fatso in comparison this week!
We don't have to go to specific ob/gyn but we have to pay attention to what hospital the ob/gyn works out of. My old ob/gyn works out of a hospital that is about an hour away from where I live now. Driving that far in labor makes me nervous (especially if I go into labor during rush hour when that trip could be much longer).
Then OH and I were driving around our new place and there is a hospital literally right down the road so I changed to an ob/gyn that works out of that hospital. It makes me feel comfortable knowing the hospital is so close should anything happen or when I go into labor.
As for the new doctor, the office has 6 ob/gyn's and they actually suggest you make an appointment with all the doctors since any one of them could be delivering your baby since it happens to be whatever doctor is on call that day. So I'm trying to go that route and should I dislike the first doctor I'll just avoid making appointments with her and make appointments with the others. I'm trying to think positive though, I don't have any reason to think the doctor will be bad.
Will you be giving birth at a hospital or will you be doing a home birth or something? I read a lot of about people doing water births and home births and that is almost unheard of around here.
Sorry about you doing all the gagging. When I hit 6 weeks, I started to get nauseated and the only thing that ever made it feel better was eating. Then anytime I went too long without a snack I'd get nauseated again and start gagging. Are you nauseated too? If so, I'd say you're starting to get MS.
I have felt a little nauseous if I get hungry as well, but nothing major at all. Once I eat I definitely feel better, maybe this is all my ms will ever amount to?!
That's interesting about how your system works, it makes a lot of sense to work with the drs at your chosen hospital. I believe we literally don't meet the dr who will be in charge of our labour until we are mid push
Yeah a lot of people see, to do water births. we have a show here called one born every minute, following peoples labour, and a lot seem to be going down the water route. Not for me I think - the thought of giving birth in a pool, with all the...bits floating around you? Yuk! I don't know of anyone who has ever had a home birth, but I know it's an option, I think really that would only be for second baby or more.
That's lucky that your hospital will be so close. We live in the I middle of nowhere, so it'll be at least 25 mins to our hospital, depending on traffic. I'm sure it will seem like the longest journey ever!
That's how my MS started out. Then it progressed to gagging and eating food not getting rid of it. Ginger ale has become my new best friend. I haven't actually thrown up yet though so that's good but I'm sure it'll be coming.
Tomorrow I hit the 8 week mark. I look forward to Friday's since I know I get a new fruit then. It's cool getting to see how the baby is developing. Then I'll probably get to the doctor and they'll tell me I'm not that far along. That seems to be the trend I see happen in first tri.
I hope your doctor makes a good impression when you get to meet him. I have a friend in a different state who had a doctor come in, in a Hawaiian shirt so he didn't look like a doctor at all. Of course, in the middle of labor I don't think you'll care too much.
25 minutes isn't too bad. That was about the distance the hospital that my old ob/gyn worked out of was. Then we moved and that time doubled to 40-50 minutes. I couldn't imagine driving that far in labor.
