@traceyjoy:  Thanks for starting our new thread! 🙂

I’ve been MIA for WEEKS as finishing up the school year was ridiculously crazy for me. I kept up on reading everyone elses posts and updates when I had a free moment, but now that schools out for the summer I can join in again! Yay!

How far along are you?

17w2d — can I get my gender scan already?! lol I’ll be 20 weeks on my birthday, so we’ve got to wait all the way until some where around July 8th or later- BOO

What have you purchased so far?

Not very much, we’re sort of waiting to find out the gender. So far we have a changing table pad, a diaper & changing station organizer, and a pack n play that we’ll probably use as our “crib” for a good while in our little apartment.

Where are you/will you register?

 We will register, but just not sure where yet. I’ve started a private wish list on amazon to get an idea of items, but nothing too serious.

What are you researching right now?

TMI time? Sure if you’re down to read it, if not then you can skip ahead to the next section. I’ve been trying to look into information about the mucus plug because I’ve been worried that I’ve been loosing some of mine every time DH and I have sex. I read about women spotting after sex, which has never happend to me, but I do get this weird stringy sort of discharge the day after we’ve done it. I don’t know if it is mucus plug or what, but I’ve read about how it can “regrow” so I’m not too worried. I’ll bring it up next time I’m at the doctors.

What are you loving about your pregnancy?

I’m loving when DH talks to my belly every night before going to bed. I’m also happy that so far I’ve had an easy pregnancy and fingers crossed that that is a continuing trend. i love reading about baby’s new developments. 

I will say that I’m NOT loving my regular break outs on my chin or my bump envy. I’m a plus size girl to begin with so I figured that it might take longer for me to show, but I’m really not feeling the weeks its been where I’m just feeling increasingly fat. I have virtually no bump, but a few people have awkwardly tried to touch/ rub my tummy and they rub way up high where stomach is, not baby. 

How did you meet your DH or SO?

We met online. At first we sent some messages back and forth, but nothing became of it. Then about a month later we came back to one another’s profiles. This time we met up for our first date. 


Also, I’ve been thinking- what do you ladies think about the possibility of also creating a closed Facebook group?

How did you meet your DH or SO?
This is so embarrasing.. I met him while he was on a date with someone else, I was a bartender at the resturant they were at. He kept checking me out… I swear I was trying so hard not to give him eye contact! BUT HE WAS SOOO CUTE! He took his date home early, and came back and proceeded to flirt with me the rest of my shift. Instead of giving him my phone number…. I gave him my facebook info ::hangs head in shame::…. but I’m glad I did! the rest is history!

Well, just came back from my lastest appt. and I’m afraid to say we’re a little disappointed. Since I’m 18 weeks today, I thought we would be able to see the gender so DH flew into town even though he is CRAZY busy at work. But my OB didn’t even do an u/s. Just a quick listen with the doppler and we were out of there within 5 minutes!

She said I’m supposed to schedule a seperate anatomy scan, which I did for this coming Friday. I just felt so bad because DH was already having guilt about missing things and he REALLY wanted to be there to find out the gender. Also, I talked to the u/s people and apparently DH is not allowed in during the scan, only right at the end so it’s not even worth it for him to fly down again in 5 days. Sigh. Instead we decided to have the tech put the gender in an envelope that I will open with him over facetime.

How far along are you? 

18 weeks exactly

What have you purchased so far?

Glider, pack n’ play that will be baby’s crib for the first few months, a few onsies, a pair of baby converse, and an economy pack of size 1 seventh generation diapers – they were less than $9 when we signed up for amazon prime!

Where are you/will you register?

We are going with Amazon universal registry so that we can add things from whatever website we want. But for potential return purposes, we are linking most of our items from Babie R’ Us and Target instead of registering with Amazon directly.

What are you researching right now?

Strollers! We are trying to decide if it’s worth it to take advantage of the Free Ride event that Britax is having or to just hold out and buy a cheaper system.

What are you loving about your pregnancy?

Feeling the baby move! Or at least, trying to figure out if it was the baby or not. Oh, and not feeling any shame when my gut hangs out!! Because I’m pregnant gosh darn it! Just don’t ask me how far along I am….

How did you meet your DH or SO?

A mutual friend wanted me to check him out for her so we all went out to get vietnamese food. By the end of dinner, I thought he was kind of boring and definitely not her type and he thought I talked too much. 3 weeks later that same friend invted us out for bowling to check out ANOTHER guy she was interested in and that’s when DH and I realized we actually have a lot in common. Plus, I think he was checking out my butt all night while I bowled. 😉

How far along are you?  21 + 3

 

What have you purchased so far? just a few clothes

 

Where are you/will you register?  Was registered at Babies R Us, but I deleted it because of all my shower drama

 

What are you researching right now?  Nothing – did all my research last month

 

What are you loving about your pregnancy? Love feeling my baby boy move & kick!

 

How did you meet your DH or SO? To make a LONG story short – He is the ex-husband of my former BFF.    I met them both almost 8 years ago.  In 2010, she was caught having an affair and used my dad’s death & funeral as a coverup.  In the days after the funeral, my now H called me to offer condolences and everything came out…I was going through a separation and divorce in 2010, then they were.  We leaned on each other for support.  We really did start out as friends but it grew into so much more.

How far along are you?

19 weeks + 3 days 

What have you purchased so far?

Stroller, exersaucer, baby bjorn and tonight we’re picking up the crib.

Where are you/will you register?

We’ve started a registry at Babies R Us.  Once we know the gender we’ll add more items to the registry.

What are you researching right now?

Nursery furniture.  We’ve decided on a white crib from pottery barn so now I’m looking into dressers and gliders that will coordinate.  I’m planning to use the dresser as a change table and I want to buy something that will last a number of years.

What are you loving about your pregnancy?

I’ve had a pretty great pregnancy overall.  My favourite thing would have to be feeling the baby move.  I can’t wait for the movements to get stronger so DH can really feel them.

How did you meet your DH or SO?

We met online.

@traceyjoy:  thanks for starting a new thread!

How far along are you? 17 + 6 

What have you purchased so far? A couple onesies, a pack of NB diapers, a pack of size 1 diapers, a case of wipes… and the crib bedding/change table cover/matching blanket. Oh, and 2 pack and plays from garage sales for the grandparents.

Where are you/will you register? Babies R Us… probably in the next couple of weeks. 

What are you researching right now? Strollers! My gosh.. strollers. I’m so overwhelmed. 

What are you loving about your pregnancy? Everything! Love feeling some super strong kicks yesterday and excited for lots more of those!  

How did you meet your DH or SO? We actually have known each other since grade 6 lol. We went to elementary and high school together. In high school we were both always dating other people, but ALWAYS flirted… I had a crush on him for as long as I can remember, and apparently… so did he lol. He stayed with HS girlfriend on again/off again through university (we went to seperate universities, never kept in touch…) and then broke up a couple years after that. I had just broken up with a guy after a coupe years and our sisters, who are the same age schemed to get us out for a date. Had I known he had a crush on me since like grade 9 I would have dumped all the losers I was with before him! ha ha ha. It all worked out 😉 He sent me a facebook message in Jan of 2009 asking if I wanted to go out for dinner… we were engaged in April 2010, married in June 2011 and now baby on the way! He is my price, that’s for sure. I’m one lucky girl. 🙂 🙂

How far along are you? 18 weeks today! Smile

What have you purchased so far? Just a few onsies, a blanket and a sleep and play outfit. Nothing major.  I think I am finding that I am a bit superstitiious and I didn’t know it.  We’ll probably only get the crib and some other furniture before the shower. 

Where are you/will you register?  Babies R Us and Buy Buy Baby.  I haven’t started adding to them yet. It’s so overwhelming!  Hoping to get started this weekend. 

What are you researching right now? Child care, what to register for, cribs, paint colors.

What are you loving about your pregnancy? It’s been really easy so far.  Just minor things here and there.  You won’t catch me complaining! Also, it’s so nice to see DH in a totally different light.  He is completely smitten with the baby.

How did you meet your DH or SO? At work.

Where are you/will you register? Already registered at Babies R Us – DH and I had a blast doing so!

What are you researching right now? My strange aversion to eggs, lol… ever since I got pregnant I can’t stand the thought of, smell of, or taste of eggs!

What are you loving about your pregnancy? Feeling baby kicks and flutters! 🙂 Can’t wait for our anatomy scan tomorrow!
