Then he said, very seriously, "I am going to get you an innertube to sleep on so that you stop bouncing around the bed." ass. But I laughed. He went through a whole plan of how it was going to work. He's such a dork. But sweet in his own way.
Bouncing around bed...lol. It's always nice to have a sense a humor about things with your DH. Makes experiences a lot more fun.

That is a great story! I keep moving towards the center of the bed...good thing we are getting a king size bed! I think that will help. My cousin swears by her body pillow...don't know if I want to spend money on one...although if it helps me sleep, it may not be a bad idea...

Oh, and someone asked about buying maternity clothes. Since January, I actually lost about 35lbs (between walking the dog and not eating as much). As a result, my pants that were big back in October, are JUST starting to fit almost normally again...I bought one dress at a consignment shop because it was only 5 dollars andI don't really have any good dresses (I usually wear a skirt and top if I need to dress up...). My MIL is coming at the end of the month and it is rumored that she wants to take me shopping for maternity clothes...I totally can't justify it!

Amusing bra shopping story: I went to Lane Bryant to buy a couple of regular bras since I am not happy with the ones from Motherhood Maternity (I returned all but the one I took the tags off and tried again after pulling out the underwire). Anyways, I ask the woman to measure me and tell her I am pregnant so that she can measure with anticipation of growth! She does the math, looks at me and says, "Would you believe that you are measuring a DDD????" I replied "Yes!" My boobs were sooo sore for such a long time and I can tell they are significantly bigger...but she was surprised that I went from a D(borderline DD) to a DDD! She was sweet though. Had to order them because they didn't have any in store with the next band size up in order to allow for growth.

I have been in sports bras for the past month. I plan on going shopping Friday for new bras that fit and I am scared of what size they may be.

Do any of you ladies use dopplers? I have the sonoline B one and use it about once a day. I love hearing my baby's heartbeat. I plan to continue to use it until I can feel kicks. Or maybe a bit longer, until my DH can feel the kicks since he loves using it as well. Only question I have is whether there are any safety issues with using one. I asked my OB and she advised me not to get one, but she said that was because people don't know how to use it and may not hear a heart beat and then get unnecessarily worried, call their doctors, drive to the ER etc only to find that everything is fine. That wasn't enough of a reason for me so I got one.

As far as maternity clothes, I don't want to talk about it. I'm still bitter about that. I lost 40 pounds before I got pregnant through diet. But I knew we were going to TTC so I didn't get anything altered thinking I can just wear them for a little while so that I don't have to get maternity clothes. WRONG! I was down to a small 8 in jeans when I got pregnant. Within 4 weeks I couldn't wear my size 14 pants. My damn ass spread to twice it's normal proportions. It looks like the giant pillsbury dough boy in the Ghostbuster movie. I am 16 1/2 weeks and I've only gained 4 pounds but I have had to wear dresses since I was like 8 weeks. Now I'm at least starting to look pregnant rather than fat which is nice.

As for Doppler. I didn't get one. Mostly, because I knew I would be the crazy lady who couldn't work it and then freaked out. Plus, I was so sick that I was pretty sure everything was going ok in there. I haven't read or heard anything saying they are harmful though so I feel you are fine. Let's just say with the people I represent in court, I figure as long as I am not baking the little bun in meth or any other drugs owlet will be just fine. Although, now I wish I had a doppler because I'm starting to feel better so now I'm wondering if everything is ok in there. I really hope that I start to feel it soon.

Last night, and even a couple of times today, I have felt what I would probably call "kicks"! It's way more than a flutter but not painful, just definitely there and very isolated. I go for my anatomy scan tomorrow!

Every once in a while, I feel like my stomach drops like I'm on a rollercoaster. Dr. said it could be the baby doing somersault. But that's all I've felt so far.

I'm so excited for our first gender!

Reggie - before last night, all I felt was flutters/vibration. In fact, the other day I was in a patient's room and felt a strong vibration that I am pretty sure was NOT my phone...and I said out loud...something just vibrated and I have no idea what it was! LOL. My patient was very confused! Of course, I was too, at least at first!
