It looks like we have some ladies turning over to a new week!
@mummy2o Happy 18 weeks!
@OurLilFlu Happy 21 weeks!
How's everyone feeling? I'm good. I think I had some actual nausea yesterday morning and before dinner last night. (!!) My breasts have started to hurt more as well. (!!)
Does anyone have any Halloween costumes planned? I've seen some cute/funny/bizarre costumes for pregnant ladies. Any plans for pets or kids this year or any ideas for next year? I won't be far in and will not have told many, but I'm considering wrapping toilet paper around my belly to be a "mummy" for pictures with my husband.
I've had a good day so far, we got out to get to our play group / I got a workout in. I had raging morning sickness in the middle of it, though and spent ten minutes dry heaving on a bench, ugh. I am thankful, though, that the all day lingering nausea seems to be gone, so if I have to deal with dry heaving at random times it's okay, I am lucky compared to others. I just have to eat no less than every ten minutes.
My daughter is going to be both a bumble bee and a lady bug. I'm insane and couldn't resist buying the lady bug costume on Carters' website, even though I had already found a bumble bee costume on clearance last year. We'll go to a Halloween party with toddlers, then take her to our annual base Halloween party/trunk or treat. I don't have a costume, though. I should do something!
@Hopeful, costume is a great idea. I used to go all out with costumes, DH and I have had some great ones, but no where to really wear it this year. Since I'll be about 30 weeks I kind of wanted a shirt that says "Pumpkin Smuggler" as I feel like the size would be just about right, but hard to warrant $30 for a shirt I'll wear one time. I might just make a DIY verison.
I'm oldest will be Woody and the baby will be Buzz from Toy Story. OH may be batman and ill probably be a witch since its flowy dress and I'm not quite looking pregnant just fat We always dress up too even before kids as Halloween is a favorite holiday!
Hopeful- the nausea is a great sign! I always took a lot of comfort when I was nauceous...felt like things were progressing like they should! Mine kicked in around 5 weeks or so as well.
I've never really been into dressing up for Halloween...even when I was a kid I preferred to pass out candy. My DH and I always carve pumpkins watch the first harry potter and hand candy out...it's a great, low key, tradition for us!
@KatyW I'm glad you made it out of the house and was able to do some things today! Those are both super cute costumes! You should do a costume! Any ideas?
@melann13 That sounds cute! I'd love to see it if you make it! I won't wear the toilet paper for long or to anywhere, but I've always liked the idea of "mummy" and I don't know if I'll be pregnant on another Halloween so we just might do it for a picture.
@daddiesgift I think they will be so cute as Woody and Buzz! That's a neat idea!
@kksy9b I love to carve pumpkins. I always love looking at people's designs. Some of them are so intricate. Was your nausea off and on at the beginning? I don't always feel it, but I assume that's okay for now.
I've been looking at lots of announcements that deal with Halloween because we plan to announce to parents near then, although I'm not sure we will make it Halloween related. I'm attaching a couple of neat ones below. There was another of one pumpkin that looked as though it was giving birth to a smaller pumpkin. It's neat, but maybe a little creepy.
Hopeful- it was off an on again until about 6 weeks, then it was mostly just at night for a week. Around 7 weeks it kicked into all day every day nausea (so incredibly thankful that I was never sick). I learned to always have a light snack on hand and that seemed to help. It stuck around like that until around 11 weeks before it went back to on and off again. Now at 15 weeks, I just get it every once in awhile or if I take my prenatal too early in the evening (the iron is brutal for me).
I really like the pumpkin ideas! Especially the one with the little pumpkins inside the bigger one!
