EDD? There was a bit of confusion over my O date, but I’m pretty sure it’s October 11th.

How long did you try before your BFP? Second month; 11th cycle charting.

Do you have any other kids or is this the first? First one!

Do you have any symptoms yet? If so what? Do you feel pregnant? My main symptoms were that my nips WEREN’T sore. And I’ve gotten weird “hot flashes” on a few days, but I just blew those off as me being a weirdo. 

I don’t feel pregnant at all! I have some cramping today and they feel just like AF cramps. I don’t think it’s going to feel real for a while. 

What are you the most excited about? A baby! haha. I’m super excited to feel Baby Lemondrop move and to see DH’s face when he can feel baby move.

What are you the most nervous about? The obvious. Oh yeah, and debilitating morning sickness. And I’m a bit worried about telling my family – that seems like it could go either way in terms of support.

Thanks for starting this!

 

Roll Call!

EDD? October 2, 2014

How long did you try before your BFP? 14 cycles, finally got pregnant thanks to IUI!

Do you have any other kids or is this the first? First!

Do you have any symptoms yet? If so what? Do you feel pregnant? Not really. My breasts have been tender and I have some occasional cramping, but that’s it. I definitely didn’t think I was pregnant this cycle and even bought a box of tampons the night before my positive test!

What are you the most excited about? Everything. This baby has been so long awaited. When we first started trying, I had all these books and stuff thinking it would happen right away and when it didn’t, I put all that stuff away. It’s been fun to pull it out and really get into it. I’m excited to have a bump, buy maternity clothes, buy baby clothes, plan a nursery, and I am very, very excited to experience childbirth!

What are you the most nervous about? The anxiety that something will happen to the pregnancy or the baby’s health…I think most newly pregnant moms experience that, thought.

Roll Call!

EDD? October 11 based on O date, October 12 based on LMP

How long did you try before your BFP? 2 years and 3 months – first cycle on clomid!

Do you have any other kids or is this the first? This is the first!!!

Do you have any symptoms yet? If so what? Do you feel pregnant?
I have some nausea, but that is hard to tell if it is from anxiety or not!  I have had bad back aches, cramps and bloating, as well as sore nipples.

What are you the most excited about? Everything!! Telling our families is pretty high up there too – first grandbaby on all sides, and this LO will have 10 aunts and uncles (plus lots of great aunts and uncles too).  It takes a village!

What are you the most nervous about?
The obvious – I feel like I can’t relax and enjoy it yet.  Also, breastfeeding, just because I want to do it so. bad. but I am worried that it won’t work out.

@Tomato22:  I think you may have to just keep posting an updated list… That’s why it seems like on the POAS threads anyway!

It’s so exciting to have the first grandchild!  I am very excited to tell them 🙂  I have already ordered some clearance onesies from old navy that say ‘I heart Grandma’ etc.

Congrats to all you October mommies! I can’t believe we are there already. This is going to be an awesome year. 🙂

@Tomato22:  After a certain amount of time you can’t edit a previous post. If you want to add everyone’s dates you will have to copy the original post and add the dating there.

When I was running the August Momma’s board I found it helpful to keep a sticky note handy with everyone’s updates. That way I only had to post an udpate every couple of pages.

@princessbelle:  Well, heartburn is a good sign isn’t it? I have a new symptom, PEEING. I actually went to m. OB yesterday just to check if it’s not a bladder infection and she did an US and everything looks fine. The little embro was 2mm, unbelievable!!! When is your six weeks appointment? Are you still POASing?

@Tomato22:  Thanks, he is getting better and better, it was a scare indeed, we got the diagnosis two months before our wedding… I am happy that you got pregnant quickly too. It feels so unreal, doesn’t it? My sister has been struggling with infertility for 1,5 years and I am not sure yet how to tell her.

@misshydra:  We haven’t told anyone yet. We have an US 12/2 and want to tell my parents on Valentines Day, other than that we wann to wait till the second trimester… It’s soooo hard though 🙁

@maggierose:  It feels so strange, I have never been an anxious or fearful person but I love this little seed so much already that it would break my heart to loose it. How are you doing today?

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  Yay! Congrats, I am so happy for you! I was stalking you on the POAS Board and I am excited to see you here now!

Roll Call!

EDD? According to LMP October 3rd, but I must have ovulated later and my OB said October 6th 🙂

How long did you try before your BFP? Lucky first 

Do you have any other kids or is this the first? This is our first!

Do you have any symptoms yet? If so what? Do you feel pregnant? Peeing constantly, sore boobs every other day and some cramping that feels like AF. Oh yes, how could I forget, TIRED 24/7.

What are you the most excited about? Seeing the heartbeat, getting a bump, enjoying pregnancy, telling family & friends and having this miracle together with my hubs.

What are you the most nervous about? Miscarriage 🙁 We’ve had a family history and I am scared of it. Other than that I am anxious that something can go wrong in general but I try to stay positive…

Ladies, I am so excited for this journey. Wishing you all a wonderful and relaxing weekend. I hope many girls from the February POAS board will join this fantastic group!
