Woohoo! I’ll play ๐Ÿ™‚

Number of Children, Ages, and Sexes:  DD#1 is 3 years old

Current Due Date: June 11th

How Far Along?: 8+ weeks

Sex (if you know it):  Too early to tell yet

How Has This Pregnancy Differed from Previous Pregnancy/Pregnancies?: So far it’s definitely not as easy in some ways, in others it’s better. My first pregnancy I had clear glowing skin, my hair and nails were amazing, I slept really well and was hardly ever sick. Also I was working full time and had plenty of energy. But I also fixated on the pregnancy a lot and was terrified about childbirth.

This time I am more just sort of going along, life is as it always is but I’m pregnant. I’m focused on having a good pregnancy but not dwelling. I haven’t bought any baby books yet, not really considering the sex of the baby. This time I’m breaking out badly and my hair is greasy. YUCK. I am also nauseated all day and have no appetite. I have no energy and have actually lost a little weight too. I really hope my second trimester gives me that much anticipated energy boost. Also I’m already showing. With Dirty Delete I didn’t actually show until about 18 weeks.

@Mrs. Spring: I tried to warn you about seconds. They just pop out there to say “hi” to everyone before the first trimester is even close to over.

I get to play to!

Number of Children, Ages, and Sexes:  Two Dirty Delete 9 and 3

Current Due Date: July 16th

How Far Along?: 4 weeks

Sex (if you know it):  Too early, but want to be team green.

How Has This Pregnancy Differed from Previous Pregnancy/Pregnancies?: I was suprised seeing the line even though we have been TTC. My boobs are sore, but that has really been it. With the other two I “knew” before I took the test. It sounds weird, but I always have baby dreams wake up and take a test and know it will be positive. I had a baby dream two nights ago, but I just didn’t feel pregnant.

@Mrs. Spring: I know! I wonder if she will move up as time goes on, but I am already about 6 months! DS is very excited! He went to our first appt with us and got to hear the baby’s heartbeat, to which he looked at the dr and told her that he loved her! And he went to the gender/anatomy US with us. He doesn’t understand why he can’t have the baby right now though, he doesnt want to wait!

How is everyone else’s kids doing with adjusting? i have noticed DS pretending to be a baby lately, and he started to have quite a few accidents with going to the bathroom. I didn’t know if it was just coincidence, or if becuase he knows another child is coming?

Just wanted to say that I hope to be joining this thread soon.  We’re in month 2 of trying.  Dirty Delete is (crazily) 9.5 months old.  But after my disappointing BFN last month, I at least know that I’m on-board with trying.  We were Team Green with the first one but I think I’ll want to know the second time around.  And I’m all about a small gender reveal party.
