I'm 26+6 (May 22nd) with the first little un for myself and my partner. After three traumatic miscarriages I am still in disbelief that we have managed to get this far, and my pink bundle is definitely already a loved little miracle!
Fairly easy first trimester, very mild sickness and few other symptoms. Second Tri has been harder, been suffering with awful carpal tunnel/rsi shoulder pains which have resulted in me being signed off work much earlier than I would have liked. I can't even put makeup on or dry my hair properly without it kicking in and being cry inducingly painful all day. That said, much rather that I was suffering a bit than baby was.
We have an idea of the name, (currently thinking of Evelyn) but I'm worried about how popular the name Evie is in the UK at the moment. I know that realistically thats what people would call her day to day, and I don't want her being one of three in the class, even though I know its probably a silly thing to worry about. Other name we are considering is Sienna, but still not as sold on that one yet. No middle names yet, although my OH would like his childhood dogs name.... still trying to talk him out of it!
My prediction is that she'll be early, by a week, and be around 8lb3oz. My sisters and I were all big babies, and my two nieces weren't small either!
Not necessarily a regular poster, but always a reader, so it'll be nice keeping up with you all.
I'm 27 weeks exactly and moving over today but feeling a little like I don't really belong yet!
I'm due May 21st with a little pink bundle. OH and I both have older children but this is our 1st together.
We've managed to narrow names down to a choice of two but think we'll wait until she's here before we make the decision
Haven't had the easiest time of things, still suffering morning sickness and had bleeding from a low lying placenta but keep telling ourselves she's worth every minute of it
Due to the placenta we think I'll be having a c section early, so I'm predicting she'll be here on May 7th weighing 7lb 4oz
Can't wait to meet our little pink princess now
Ok folks, first post is updated with everyone's information and predictions (if given). If I missed anyone, you want to make a change, or I messed anything up, just let me know and I'll fix it! I had to do some due date calculating when a specific date wasn't given, so chances are I messed someone's up. I will also add new people as they come.
I love this! The 3rd tri posts were starting to scare me!
28 + 3, EDD of May 11th, Mothers Day! FTM, little girl, Molly Elizabeth. My husband has a daughter that is 10.
First tri was rough! Bad pains starting at week 5 until about 10, MS was around week 8 to 15. 2nd tri was much better. Now starting to get really achey, my hips hurt and reflux/heartburn is a nightmare! Plus my boobs are HUGE, not that they were small before, but seriously! Whats after DD!?
Ultrasounds have been perfect and she has been measuring right on schedule.
My prediction is May 8th, 7 lbs. I hope she has arrived in time for me to enjoy mothers day with her!!
[QUOTE=Perseids;31717903]I agree – great thread idea!
I'm 28 w + 2 d. Due May 11 with my first child – a boy! I think it is adorable that my estimated due date is Mother's Day this year. I have a strong feeling that my little guy is going to make an appearance before his due date, though. He was measuring further along at the last ultrasound. For being a complete surprise, I'm having a pretty healthy pregnancy.
Seems a good number of us are suffering from hearburn/reflux... has anyone found anything effective for treating it? Mylanta/Tums don't even touch it for me. A family member suggested papaya tablets, but I haven't tried them yet.

I've been leaking since about 20 weeks! I have to wear breast pads already. If I forget them, it's guaranteed I'll leak through my bra at the most inopportune time. (In the middle of a church group gathering )
