Yes! Kind of freaked out, honestly DS is only 6 months old. I don't think it's totally sunk in yet, honestly.

Welcome, wamommy and congratulations!

Something I have to share from this evening:

Our parents don't know yet, and we're going to tell them the news when we see them in a couple of weeks. This will be their first grandchild, and they are starting to get grandbaby envy (well, more longing really) from their very good friends whose children have produced one apiece. In addition, my mum has been battling an illness this year, which has left her super exhausted and demoralised at times. This news is going to get them so stoked! So this evening we were talking on Skype and all the time I was fighting this massive urge to just blurt it out, combined with worry that I would make some comment about my due date or not drinking at this wedding we're attending together. It's so weird having this massive life event pressing against my bladder as I talk to them! Hope I can hold out the two weeks, because I really want to tell them in person.

Edit: I should also add that they didn't even know we were trying, and their last update on that subject was that DH really wasn't sure about children (which was true 3 months ago!).

We aren't going to tell my grandparents (great-grandparents-to-be) until after the 12 week scan, so that's going to be another challenge. I Skyped them yesterday and they were like "so, what's new with you both?", and I was like "oh, you know, nothing new really, everything's fine"... (Snort).

It's all so exciting and scary. So much to look forward to, so much to worry about!

Thats amazing how quickly you have fallen pregnant again - be lovely for your little one to have a sibling so close in age, theyll get mistaken as twins as they get older.

I waited 6 years for my first after fertility treatment but he ended up being natural and wasnt expecting this little one so quick - I must say it does scare me a bit having 2x two and under.

Ladies, I hopped on the scale this morning and it says I've gained 12 lbs since my bfp 4 weeks and 4 days ago!!!!!! Is that really possible? I have extreme bloating and I can't drink much water due to nausea. My clothes are certainly tighter in the belly and boobs but I don't feel like I have actually gained that much! What do you guys think? Normal? Call the doc? Wait until my appt next week? I'm horrified!!!!

Just stopping by for a good monday morning hello!

Still excited for my scan.. 15 DAYS TO GO!!!!!! Just ordered my traditional medicinals tea and I'm all set to go for the week Other than the sickness I had this morning (which was cured by a hot chai and pretzels) things are going pretty swell over here!

BRENN09- NO! Don't worry! In the beginning things happen fast, it could be your body's way of reacting to it all. Plus you retain more water easily! I say if it continues (like another 10 in a month) I would ask a doc, but I'm sure your body is just making some changes.. & I see this is your FIRST so that may also be playing a tiny role in things..

I gained ten, but the bloating went down this week and 5 came back off. It's probably the bloating and the lack of water. I bet it will even back out.

Wamommy- Congratulations! What an amazing story. This baby was definitely meant to be!!

Ttclou25- Congratulations! So excited to add another mommy to April.

Morgan- I can't wait to see your scan in 15 days! That will be so exciting! My next scan is September 26th for the nuchal translucency.

Snowywarren- that is so amazing that you fell pregnant so quickly. I have pcos and my second daughter took me 2 1/2 years to conceive. I was on fertility drugs for many many many months. I didn't get on bc after her, we just used condoms, because bc really has negative effects on me. (probably because of the pcos). We decided to ttc and didn't use condoms for one month and I got pregnant. Absolute surprise. I would have never expected it to happen so soon!

AFM- I need to start eating healthier. With my other two I ate and craved healthy foods. All I wanted with my second girl was salads and clear drinks. With my first I wanted nothing but lemons. I would eat lemons like oranges. With this one I want nothing but carbs and crap. I feel so run down and I know it must be the vitamins I'm missing. Thinking of a salad makes me gag, and I love salad! I decided to try and force myself to eat healthy. I made a smoothie with frozen strawberries and plain non fat greek yogurt for breakfast. It was really good and I don't feel as tired today. I just need to find fun ways to eat healthy until this first tri is over. I decided to drag my booty to the gym yesterday and that really upped my energy. It's crazy what kind of effect pregnancy has on a body. I hope you are all doing well. I can't believe I am 8 weeks tomorrow!!! All of my m/c's were before 8 weeks, so this is a huge relief.
