Emma- That is so cool that you have the same Due Dates for both! I may copy your photobucket idea, you have such BEAUTIFUL bump photos. What an adorable pregnant woman you were ! Question: How far along were you in the pink shirt and how far in the plaid shirt?
Missus and Emma- I feel like I have a small bump too and have been in denial of it because it's so early I didn't show until I was 4 months with DD. I also wonder if it's just from eating and bloating but I'll post a pic of my teeny bump. I even had a girl at my dance class comment and ask if something was going on ( so I had to tell her); so that night I decided to take a bump shot.
also, Thank heavens for good numbers on your blood test missus, what a breath for fresh air
Sasha - Love you girls too, where would we be without eachother? It's such a warm feeling knowing that we are all here for eachother. ....... soooooo how's hubby?
Jbell- I'm so happy your U/S made it real for DH, I don't think it has sunk in for my OH yet but I'm sure it will in time. And..... Congrats on your "Raspberry" growth yesterday, how exciting
Has anyone ever heard that theory that once you see a heartbeat on an U/S your chances of M/C dramatically decrease, or is this just in my head?
Soooooo OH and I dtd last night and these progesterone suppositories dry me up ( they said they would... blah) so when OH was finished he noticed some chafing on his "member". I went pee shortly after and there was light spotting in my panty liner. I got so scared I didn't know if it was me or from him because he said he had a little bleeding but unfortunately I never got to see it on him. (TMI alert) I'm really bloated right now and OH has a little buddah belly.... he was on top and his belly was pushing into my belly and I had to stop a couple times to catch my breath because our stomachs were pushing into each other so much. Then with the spotting after I was thinking" OH NO could that pushing on my belly have started a MC, or am I reading to much into this)? EEK I don't know what to think, and of cource it's Saturday so I cant call my doctor . Also, Oh wont go down on me anymore , since I started the suppositories it grosses him out, but I always "clean up" first. It's not fair, he gets his cookie but I don't get mine UGH!!! SORRY FOR TMI
Hi all! Sorry I've been MIA last few days. Been really quite ill. I have been checking in often though to see what everyone's been up to.
Emma, those bump pics are lovely! That is exactly the kind of bump I want. I just have pudge! The pudge is definitely getting bigger but it is still just pudge.
JBell, aaaah! A raspberry!! That actually seems big! Compared to our wee poppy seeds that we had a few weeks back! I also had four vials taken but no idea what for (good on you for doing your homework - I was just like 'sure take my blood, take my pee, any other bodily fluids I can help you with?') I was told I didn't need to phone up about them. They're just routine and if anything was wrong the midwife will let me know.
Sasha, so glad things are sorting themselves out with DH. How's he been since? Grovelling I hope!
Momof1, I hear it's really common to have a bit of spotting after dtd although...this is quite embarrassing but DH and I haven't we are both just so scared of doing any damage. I know it's ridiculous but it's just got in our heads. I know we have to get over it at some point or another but I guess I've been so ill lately I just haven't really addressed it. Any other girls been brave enough? Although I would say...no cookie for you...no cookie for him! Haha! I bet he'll soon feel better about it then
So I found out why the rumour mill has been going wild at work! It's all because of...my boobs! I had no idea my colleagues paid so much attention to my décolletage but apparently a number of them have been talking about how big they've grown lately and worked it out! not sure whether to laugh or cry about that!
Location: I live in Southern California. Its no Rocky Mountains but hey.
Momof1- I think its so funny that you said cookie because that's mine and hubbies code word for dtd! Lol Anyways... I am sure you are fine and you can always get an all natural water based lubrication(talk to midwifevfor suggestion). I am sure the blood was from how dry you both were (it happened to me all the time right after aunt flow) and it only came out after there was wetness to wash it out. Hope that makes you feel better.... oh one more thing after the heartbeat is seen you mc risk drops to 3% and after week 8 2% by week 12 its 1.5% and by the end of week 12 1%...(statistics courtesy of my ob) your good I'm sure
Mammy so sorry your so sick... up till last night I only had nausea but I went to a birthday party at a bbq place and the smell of meat was too much! Eeewww.. I hope you start feeling better.Also you may feel like dtd in the second tri because as the baby moves up you will have more room down and the increase blood flow will be hard to ignore!
As for me and hubby... he stuck up to his mom and she apolagized... it was shocking!!! I feel much better now and all that's left is telling hubbies brother who will be angry too
However despite all of that, hubby and I have experienced a lull in our dtd life but we still dtd often at least 3 times a week. Sometimes there is an uncomfortable pressure but I just warn him then tilt a little this way or that or change positions. It has happened to where no matter where we moved we couldn't get comfy so we chose an alternate way to get our jollies but for the most part communication is what makesme feel comfy dtd! I hope maybe that helps.
