I know some of you are up for this and some of you really love the month by month. I had a couple people contact me about the Fall board idea and I figured why not. I am so used to the constant updating of the TTC boads and the Sept board is a little slow. I figured I would create a board for every one to mingle. To share how we are feeling and anything else that comes to our mind. Even just to chat when we are bored 🙂 And if you are creeping this board and you are at a different stage or not even trying feel free to comment!
Estimated Due Date: September 10th 2012
How far along: 10 weeks and 2 days! Whoo Hoo!!!
Next Appointment: March 6th for my u/s and then March 12th for my next appointment with my Doctor.
How are you feeling: Alive and Pregnant. I have been pretty sick and still get sick in the morning but I am surviving.
Is it what you expected: Kind of but not really. I didn’t think it would be so draining.
What are you researching: Not too much mostly looking into conditions of my Mat leave right now.
What have you bought: Nothing baby related yet. I am holding off until the 2nd trimester. But I have window shopped a lot! And I cannot wait to find the perfect diaper bag! Oo and stroller!!
Have a great day!

Welcome Ladies! And Congrats to all! I am so happy to see you guys here!
We haven’t told our parents yet, but tomorrow we are breaking the news to hubbies parents! I am so excited! I got them a valentines day card and we are going to put “To Grandma and Grandpa. Love S, K and baby Q.” we also got a box of chocolates with a soother in it. I am so excited! We are going to tell my Mom and Step Dad Thursday, I am not so excited for that one. We are getting together for my Grandma’s funeral. I am hoping this cheers my mom up a little. I have a card and box of chocolates for them too. Hopefully this puts a little sunshine in her day.

Estimated Due Date: October 3rd 2012
How far along: 7 weeks today, the midwife I saw today shifted my date from 07/10 to 03/10 so we pretty much lost a week.
Next Appointment: Not sure, I’m still sussing out a midwife (I met with one today and meet with another on Friday)
How are you feeling: Ill (but without any vomiting), mega sore boobs and patches of fatigue
Is it what you expected: Hard to say! It doesn’t quite seem real yet, we haven’t told a lot of people so we only really talk about the pregnancy amongst ourselves.
What are you researching: Maternity clothes
What have you bought: Nothing at this stage

I’ll join – looking forward to seeing the other momma’s to be!!
Estimated Due Date: October 15/16, 2012
How far along: 5w1D
Next Appointment: Feb 27 first U/S, March 2 first prenatal
How are you feeling: I’m feeling great!! I have sore boobs to touch and that’s about it. Of course, I’m nearing the dreaded six week mark, but I’m really hoping m/s won’t be so bad. I’m currently working 70 hours a week. I’m a tax accountant.
Is it what you expected: No, I thought I’d feel different, but feel mostly the same (right now anyway!)
What are you researching: Newborn essentials, costs of daycare
What have you bought: Crib, changing table, swing, two baby bathtubs, pregnancy book, and diaper genie. We found some stuff at a great price so went ahead and got it. Looking at a rocking chair tonight! After that, I think that is it for quite a while!!

Nice to see so many fall babies! How exciting!
Estimated Due Date: My Ob’s office went with my LMP which puts it at Sep 6th.
How far along: 10 weeks 2 days
Next Appointment: February 24th. We saw the heartbeat at 7 weeks, but i’m kind of hoping we’ll get another ultrasound!
How are you feeling: I’m feeling waaaaaaay better than i did at 6, 7 and 8 weeks. My random nausea has gone away. I got sick yesterday, but it was only because I was trying to do the dishes. I have to stay away from certain triggers and I’m fine. My boobs are still sore, but other than that I’m totally fine.
Is it what you expected: Not really. I thought that my morning sickness would last way longer. I got kind of worried that it went away, but certain things still trigger me. Other than that, I really don’t feel much going on. Occasionally I’ll have a random pull or tug in my uterus.
What are you researching: Nothing really at the moment. I’m kind of just waiting around until my next appointment. It’s been hard for me to get too excited. I think i’m cautiously holding my breath until the second trimester.
What have you bought: Nothing! Like I said, we’re just waiting until the second trimester. Only a couple more weeks! I think that’s when i’ll really start getting excited. Plus we have to move in a couple of month, so there’s no need to buy extra stuff we’ll have to move around.
So far we’ve told my husbands immediate family…who let it slip to the entire extended family. That was kind of annoying, but I sort of expected it. We haven’t told anyone in my family yet, but will in the next couple of weeks.

Ahhh! I’m so jealous of this Fall board! We tried a summer babies board, but everyone is so active on their monthly boards that it just didn’t work. 🙁
Have fun!!!!! I’m over at the August boards: 14wks2d today! It’s so weird to think that we will all have a baby next year at this time celebrating St. Valentine’s day with some adorable outfit and passing out Valentine treats to their little baby friends. 🙂

@PennyLainne: the thread title is amazing.
Estimated Due Date: October 13, 2012
How far along: 5 weeks, 2 days!
Next Appointment: More bloodwork tomorrow, first ultrasound on February 22nd (but hopefully moved to the 21st, my Birthday!), first prenatal appointment February 29th.
How are you feeling: Nervous. Every day I question this moving forward, everyday I stay as positive as I can, but sometimes it’s hard to not let nerves and memory of last month’s loss. Pregnancy symptoms? Not many. Bloated in the evenings (you can see my belly have a little “spot” down low at night, it’s funny. Occasionally fatigued, sometimes feel pukey -but haven’t puked! That’s about it!
Is it what you expected: I didn’t expect to “feel” pregnant as much as I have. I thought it would be all mind games, but there’s some stuff physically that I am just like “woah”.
What are you researching: After my bad fall off a horse on the weekend, posting here to the October ladies and doing a lot of googling about riding and pregnancy, I want to let you ladies know that I am not going to be riding anymore. I am going to be working with the few horses I committed to from the ground until other riders fill the time I was taking care of. Other than that, I really just try to stay here on wb and not get caught up in too much else! Oh! I have googled a lot of what’s safe to eat versus what’s not -mostly on the Health Canada website. Don’t want to miss anything.
What have you bought: Nothing, and likely won’t for quite a while.
