Work is slow for me today too, so I’ll play along!

Due Date:  04.13.2013

First child?  Yep

Team Pink/Blue/Green/Undetermined:  Team Blue!

Oddest pregnancy symptom to date:  I know it’s common, but the crying.  Once I get started I can’t stop.  DH accidentally bumped his head into my lip and teeth the other day and you would have though someone killed my dog by the way I was crying.  The bump brought tears to my eyes, but after that it was ridiculous!

Feel any fetal movement yet:  None yet, darn it!!

Best pregnancy moment so far:  Seeing our little acrobat flip and turn then show us HIS goods at my cervical measurement ultrasound

Any words of advice for fellow April mamas?  Embrace the maternity pants!  There is nothing more glorious than an elastic waistband!! :)

and for giggles, post a funny picture of yourself (if you like):

This was after a long day of fun and beverages on the lake at my in laws lake house.  Plus, almost everything that’s there is super 80′s-tastic! That’s an origianl Member’s Only jacket!

I’ll play!!

Due Date: April 14, 2013

First child? Yes

Team Pink/Blue/Green/Undetermined: undetermined – we should be finding out November 15th! CAN’T WAIT!!!

Oddest pregnancy symptom to date: nausea/indigestion after meals – happens frequently to the point where I often feel worse after I eat than before. 

Feel any fetal movement yet: sometimes I think I might be feeling little flutters but its so faint that I can’t tell for sure that it isn’t all in my head. 

Best pregnancy moment so far: sharing our exciting news with friends & family. 

Any words of advice for fellow April mamas? I keep trying to do everything that I did before my bfp without cutting myself any slack, so my advice would be to SLOW down and let someone else pamper/take care of you once in a while.  

and for giggles, post a funny picture of yourself (if you like):

Due Date: April 12-14th 2013, u/s said 14th but they didnt want to change the due date from what the midwife said

First child? Yes

Team Pink/Blue/Green/Undetermined: Undetermined will find out on the 22nd Nov

Oddest pregnancy symptom to date: pins and needles in my legs, i have poor circulation anyway but jeeze they hurt sometimes

Feel any fetal movement yet: the odd bubble and flutter

Best pregnancy moment so far: First Ultrasound and the moment i told me mum, she was over the moon

Any words of advice for fellow April mamas? dont google everything before you eat it to see if its safe- chances are there is a website that says no eg herbs. i know they are fine to use in food but every herb is apparently a no no in high doses.

and for giggles, post a funny picture of yourself (if you like): i will find one later!

 

but speaking of photos here is my slightly early 16 week pic

Due Date: April 22nd. Today we’re 14 weeks + 3 days

First child? Yep!

Team Pink/Blue/Green/Undetermined:  Not sure yet – a few weeks should tell us, hopefully.

Oddest pregnancy symptom to date: No really odd ones.. but having a constant stuffy nose is weird.

Feel any fetal movement yet: None yet. :(

Best pregnancy moment so far: Seeing baby, hearing baby. Love this little bub so much already.

Any words of advice for fellow April mamas? I’m trying to be calm about everything being ok.. so I guess to just slow down, relax, and remember how lucky you are to be pregnant!

and for giggles, post a funny picture of yourself (if you like): How about a stupid outtake from the 14 week bump pics? I didn’t realise hubs had taken this. I was grinning like a loon at the cat, who was trying to gatecrash the pics!

Everyone’s bumps are looking so great. More like baby’s than eating big meals!

Due Date: April 3 – 17 weeks today!!

First child? Yes

Team Pink/Blue/Green/Undetermined: Team Green

Oddest pregnancy symptom to date: Having an aversion to beef for a couple weeks

Feel any fetal movement yet: A few bumps and nudges. Can’t wait until DH can feel them too!

Best pregnancy moment so far: First ultra sound a couple weeks ago when we got to see the baby dancing up a storm. That was amazing.

Any words of advice for fellow April mamas? Rest and let people do things for you when they want to.

Due Date: April 14, 2013

First child? Yup!

Team Pink/Blue/Green/Undetermined: Undetermined. .will find out in November!

Oddest pregnancy symptom to date: I’m not sure if its odd, awesome, or an inconvenience, but the whole boobs thing through me. I knew they would get bigger, but I didn’t know how fast and big they would grow! 

Feel any fetal movement yet: Nothing that was a for sure movement. I have been feeling vibrations in my hips, like if you were to have your cell phone in your pocket and it was on vibrate.

Best pregnancy moment so far: Telling friends and family and hearing the heartbeat. 

Any words of advice for fellow April mamas? Maternity pants are much more comfortable than any “big” pair of jeans that you have, go ahead and make the leap. 

and for giggles, post a funny picture of yourself (if you like): This was taken during our ten week photo shoot. . a few days before I took a spill playing co-edkickball (so much fun). Both of my knees were banged up too :(

I just got home from my last ever class for my masters program!  Thank God that’s over with!!

 

Due Date: 4/4/13

First child? Yes

Team Pink/Blue/Green/Undetermined: Undetermined – will find out on 11/21

Oddest pregnancy symptom to date: Had a few days where my ears were stuffy…like when you go up and down in a plane.

Feel any fetal movement yet: I don’t think so, but I lay in bed every night hoping to feel something.

Best pregnancy moment so far: Getting to see our nugget on the ultrasounds and hearing his/her heart beat at appointments.

Any words of advice for fellow April mamas? Try not to wish the weeks away.  I find myself wanting it to be the next day or the next week closer to the next appointment.  Pretty soon the pregnancy will be over and I’ll wonder where the time went.

and for giggles, post a funny picture of yourself (if you like): Can’t find one right now.  Might update later.
