Hello Everyone! Hope you ladies are all having a good day!
Arrow - I hope you feel better! That sounds painful and unsettling.
I'm back to hardly any symptoms. No nausea today. Just slightly sore boobies and some fatigue.
Starlight - Oh, I'm sorry about nosebleeds hon.
I'm not sure whether it's a boy or a girl... I think it might be a girl. I had two early guesses for girls based on our BD timing and having cold-like symptoms during the first week after O. We'll be finding out the gender so we'll see what the yellow bundle decides
Good morning ladies!! It's great to see this thread getting busy
Starlight - I felt different in a few ways while pregnant with the boys, so much so that with DS2 I initially thought it may be a girl. This time is different again, so I guess each pregnancy is different. I had a migraine for the first time with this pregnancy and I don't have the massive sore boobs yet. Can't wait to fin out what we are having Will you be finding out? Sorry to hear you're having nose bleeds, I had one with each pregnancy, they can be quite bad can't they. But as you say, it is another good sign
Holliems - Interesting that you say people are saying boy, is it just a feeling they are getting? I agree about being cautious with the news until after the 12 week mark. I see some people announcing pregnancy on social media at 5, 6 weeks and it always makes me so nervous for them.
20YR 1st Baby - Do you feel better after an early night? hope the nausea subsides for you. Have you tried ginger? I have heard it helps with feeling sick. I have finished my xmas shopping now, just have a few gifts left to wrap I do as much as possible online as I hate being in the shops with all the stroppy xmas shoppers! plus you get things much cheaper online if you hunt around.
Holliems - I have just realised I mirrored exactly what you said about xmas shopping
Mrs. MB - Interesting that you say you had gender guesses based on BD time, we conceived this time by doing it 4 days before ov so I too have been wondering if that means more chance of a girl. I had coldlike symptoms with both boys though. Exciting not knowing and guessing isn't it, I love it!
Arrow - ooh you're thinking boy? are you going to find out? not long to wait for your scan.
I am very tired today. DS2 hardly sleeps and it is starting to take it's toll on me. He just wakes every few hours for seemingly no reason and wants to stay awake. It takes us 20-60 mins to settle him and I am getting 4-5 hours sleep in 2 chuncks most nights. Have asked in first tri if anyone has advice but I feel I am just going to have to hope he changes his sleep pattern by himself. Other than that I am happy. my tummy bloat is starting to look like a little bump already which is funny. Think where I am slim it notices more.
20 Yr 1st - I am almost all done Christmas shopping! Similar to Hollieum, I like to get it all done as fast as possible. Later this week, I just need to pick up some items for my Mom, then that is it. Still need to wrap a few things though!
Arrow - what did your doctor say you needed to stick to for your diet? Just 2 more days till your ultrasound!!!
honeysuede - we found out the gender with our DD, as I really wanted to know the first time around. Then I started to think maybe we would just "surprise" ourselves with the second and not find out, but I was talking to my hubby the other day and now he said he really wants to find out, so we will be finding out the gender, if the baby cooperates we dont' find out here till about 20 weeks. Although my sister in law who lives in the US had found out with her daughters at about 12 weeks, which is so early!! Around when will you be able to find out? Poor you with not great sleep - hopefully your DS settles into a good sleep pattern soon so you're not up in the middle of the night. Is he in his own bed already? We have been starting to think about when we should transition our DD into a big girl bed.
The other day, we told our daughter that she was going to be a big sister and she looks at us nods and says yeah like she was saying "so what else is new??" haha. I guess no surprise to her. although she is 20 months old so hard to say sometimes what she understand and what she doesn't, but I think she gets the idea!!
So what did I say about being able to muster through my fatigue? Last night I was so busy I didn't sit down to eat dinner until almost 9:00pm. At 9:15 I sat on the couch and my body went to sleep. I woke up at 11:20pm and moved to bed. Guess I'm not in charge
Arrow - so excited for you ultrasound. Can't wait to see pictures!
Honey - we BD'ed one/two days before O. Interesting with your colds... I also hear there's less ms with girls. I'm back to zero symptoms as far as nausea or cravings or smells.
DH and I always wanted a boy. Once we found out we were expecting we just said - as long as it's happy and healthy it really doesn't matter. We are going to love our little one no matter what she/he is... Just want it to be alright.
I still have to buy a present for my MIL. My DH bought presents online for everyone else. He was stellar this year - really impressed me. Still need to wrap everything though.
I am pregnant with my 3rd and final baby hoping for that baby girl! As of today I am roughly 5 weeks 5 day but will find out exactly where I am in at my first doctors appointment at the beginning of January but so far so good tired, hungry, gassy, lil bit of nausea, and an emotional wreck
Hi honey suede, I live in Dorset, South Coast! I had to have an emergency section due to lack of progression after being induced. Was a bit gutted and I heammoraged badly afterwards and ended up in intensive care. I think planned sections are much easier recovery wise. Ooh have a lovely time in Rome!! We've been before and it's one of my favourite places, I just loved it!! The colosseam is awesome!! I feel bad for you not getting much sleep, are you bfing ds2? Does he have milk in the night?
Hollims- another shop hater over here.... Online all the way!!
Starlight - I've booked my early scan for 30th dec so 2 weeks to wait!! Yes I think my dd will be an amazing big sister when baby comes, she loves babies and will be so excited assuming all goes well. We won't tell her until 12 weeks. Sorry to hear about your nose bleeds lovely. What a pest. I haven't had bloating yet but it's been a symptom in previous pregnancies so just waiting for that joy!!
20yr sorry you are feeling so awful with nausea. Nice to have symptoms and signs that all is ok but awful to feel so ill at the same time. I'm pretty much done for Xmas, just need to wrap everything!!
Mrs mb - ugh... Fluctuating symptoms, I have them too. Some days there, others not. It makes it so easy to worry but am trying to stay positive!
Arrow - wishing you heaps of luck for your scan!! Why did the Dr say you had to go on a diet? What do you need to eat?
Welcome jac and moggy!! Congrats
I don't know if we will find out... We didn't with dd and I did enjoy the surprise although I was quite ill after her birth so some of that was lost on me. I don't think I want to find out though. With my dd we did 2 days before of so the theory worked for me, I got a girl. This time is IVF so doesn't apply!!
Feeling a bit worried about symptoms coming and going. I was feeling sick a lot and haven't since Sunday so a bit stressed about that. Got sore boobs, tiredness and feeling weak when I get hungry and suddenly feeling starving.
