This thread moves so quickly. It's good to know I'm not the only one that looks pregnant from being bloated😂😂. What I suffer from lately is insomnia, tender breasts and frequent urination and I'm only 4w5d pregnant. Today I got my results for my second beta, which was done on Saturday and it is 378. It has doubled from the 115 of my first beta. I'm excited.
Butterfly, that's cute, my brother is a Charlie & he's an adorable cheeky 3 year old, it suits him well
We have 2 girls names and 2 boys names picked already, but I'm too scared to share them with anyone in case they get ruined. It was so hard to get hubby to agree to any!
n8ie your scan is so soon, how exciting! I am also amazed at how often I have to pee already, especially at night!
I LOVE the name Charlie! Although my son is a Charlie and very cute and chatty which just suits him down to the ground. So I'm a bit biased.
I want to buy maternity clothes soon lol. They are so comfy and can feel the bloat pressure on my jeans already. I really don't want to gain as much weight as last time. People thought I was having twins. And now I have a lovely kangaroo pouch to show for it. Even though I'm Dow to a pre pre go weight. Will really give swimming a good shot since my DS is in school now.
I already bought a blanket that has moons with little moustaches on it. It's so cute and soft. I am itching to decorate our small bedroom already and thinking elephants to be a theme. Not sure yet.
We've told our close family and friends. Even if something happens we can rely on their support and my mother in law has had a miscarriage before so is very good and comforting to talk to giving me some reassurance. Another 3 sleeps on my next scan to check for growth and so hoping to see something in my little sac.
I can't think of names right now but we're thinking maybe Max for a boy so far. We can never decide on anything. We have am odd surname. So making sure we don't have any funny nicknames.
Sis4us just let me know when you feel comfortable being added to the front page. I'm really praying that this is a very lucky group. I think most of us have had losses or have been trying for a while so you are in good company.
Butterfly we love the name Charlie for either gender as well. We have talked that if we have a girl we'd like the name Charlotte, but would call her Charlie as it flows well with our other daughters' names.
N8ie so happy for good beta results.
I'm a bit jealous of you ladies having your scans so soon.
Mumstar elephant themed items are so adorable.
For those of you finding out genders will you have a large party to reveal? Since we have always been team yellow I kind of miss out on this so I will be living vicariously through you ladies!
We did the whole gender revealing thing with dd so for me staying team yellow is an absolute must lol!!! I want to experience both ends of the spectrum!!!!! We have several names we like!!
I had a dream last night that we found we were having triplets, 2 boys 1 girl, the boys were identical, and we were to name them Elijah, Roman, and Elizabeth!!!! When I woke up I told my dh and he looked dizzy haha!
Thanks busy tulip I will be stalking and reading until I feel stronger about my Lil Jelly Bean!! Hoping to hear a HB Friday maybe that will help but most likely I won't feel relaxed EVER just might ease up when I pass First TRi!!
I will be 40 by the time baby comes so We r starting all over my DS1 graduated last year!!
Flossie - your bloat bump is adorable! I hope the bloat subsides for all of us soon!
pink - I am beyond exhausted most days, and usually take a nap with DD. I'm not getting a lot done right now!
Butterfly - I love Charlie/Charley; those names are perfect
Mum - I went out and bought some maternity clothes as soon as I got the positive. I think I'm just going to stay in them now since they are so much more comfortable! I like Max as well!
Lou - Evie is my favorite girl's name
Boy's name is easy, we're sticking with David William (FIL and step-FIL, David is the traditional son's name in hubby's family). Girl's is more difficult, since we've already used our favorite. Middle name will be Elizabeth after MIL's middle name (DD has my mother's), but we're struggling with the first name. I'm torn between Katelyn and Esme, but I don't think hubby is keen on either of those. So we'll see!
I think I'll be around 15-16 weeks for Thanksgiving, so I'm thinking we'll do the private gender scan and do the big reveal at the family dinner when we're all together. I might have to wait and find out with everyone else so I don't blab it beforehand!
Welcome the new ladies, and good luck to everyone having appointments and scans this week!
busy - I did! The geeks on my friends' list were all thrilled, and one of hubby's Army buddies has already said he's going to steal the idea when he gets around to having kids.
A lot of us have scans at the end of the month; can't wait to see all the little babies!
