@gpsp2B:  I’m a October mommy lurking on the December boards. Saw your comment about your belly and your first ultrasound and wanted to give you a heads-up. Your ultrasound before 12 weeks or so is probably going to be transvaginal, not stomach. Just want you to be prepared so you’re not shocked when they stick the wand up your hooha!

@MrsHoneyC:  I agree 100% that I don’t want to tell and then have something happen ๐Ÿ™  It’s just getting harder and harder to not tell.

@esqbee:  by my calculations I’ll be 9 weeks next week.  I guess it’s too early to tell.  I’m just getting really antsy… it doesn’t help that there is a friend of ours who announced last week and she was 8 wks…. but this week she posted again stating she was 12 wks and they already knew the sex????  I was like “huh”?????? 

Either way you are both right, I need to wait… it’s just going to take all my will power!  Why am I so antsy?

@sn2bmrsmntgmry I totally hear you, for me I just know it would be worse for me if everyone knew or didn’t know and then said the wrong thing to me. For myself I am happier to wait & be excited to tell people than sad and disappointed I told everyone. I am sure nothing will happen to your LO xoxox

@sn2bmrsmntgmry:  We both told our best friends the day I tested positive (one each). Friday, my brother and I are visiting our dad– I’m going to tell them both then, and I’ll be about 9 weeks. My doctor said she thought it was totally fine. We invited my Mother-In-Law to visit during week 12, so we’ll tell her then.

For my dad, I took a picture of my dog (his granddaughter, totally) reading What to Expect When You’re Expecting and put it in a frame. He just moved to a new place, so I’m going to tell him it’s a housewarming gift, and I’ll send another picture for the frame in December. I’m going to show the photo to my brother at the airport on the way– that way they don’t have heart attacks at the same time (we weren’t trying). My niece will be with us, and I haven’t decided if she should know yet (she’s 4). My oldest niece (7) is dying for me to be pregnant, so she might be upset if her sister knows first.

Everyone else will know when I’m damn good and ready at 13 weeks. We’ve already heard the heartbeat, so we should be good to go, hopefully!

@SouthernSunshine:  YES! I think it’s just fatigue setting in, though. When I get exhausted (which happens at the flip of a coin), I’m just cooked. Don’t ask me my name; I won’t know the answer!

Has anyone else started looking at baby gear? I looked today, and my heart started racing! There’s so much. It was way too overwhelming. I know you don’t need it all, but some of it is so cool!

@ExcitedScaredBee:  HAHAHA omg !! My best friend just informed me of this. I had no idea!! In case you hadn’t seen earlier posts, FI and I were not TTC so I’m clearly still learning what’s ahead of me. My what to expect when you’re expecting didn’t say that though! Up the hoohaa on a full bladder, this is what I have to look forward too!!! It will be worth it to hear that little heart beating so fast though! Next Tuesday at 4:20 pm I have my first ultrasound at 7 and a half weeks. We cannot wait!!! The RN said its to find the heartbeat and to acknowledge I truly have a bun in the oven, and then the provider can see me! Definitely feeling blessed my body is handling pregnancy great so far. Just some minor cramping and pulling, and some kinda big bloating.

 

EEK i just cannot wait til this ultrasound! Tmrw I get to set up my apt for about 9 weeks with the RN to go over health history in the family. Then at 10 weeks they are going to let me see the OB GYN a little early because I may have been exposed to some radiation at about 4 weeks, a week a before my period I had some procedures done to help with liver problems. However the RN is not too worried about it she said I would have had to be under some extreme radiation. I’m not having any worrysome symptoms so thats good! I was under anesthesia two days in a row and had a catheter placed in my liver to my small intestine. Luckily the Liver specialist said I’m doing a lot better and we can just sit tight until my christmas present is delivered! I’m feeling a lot more relaxed now.

 

EEKKKKKKK I just can’t wait. Hope all the rest of you bees are doing great today :]

@esqbee: I’m glad I’m not the only one but I think Mrs. Gremmlin may be right about the fatigue. 

On another subject, I ran into my future mother-in-law today while out shopping and it was so hard not to tell her about her future first grandbaby. And it also didn’t help that she asked what I bought…oh you know some sweaters that were on sale…(maybe a size or two bigger). And also a new bathing suit, which was a one piece to which she commented “why would you buy that? You don’t look like you wear one pieces!” I can’t wait for our doctors appt Thursday so we can tell them.

Oh and I got a little daddy gift in the mail today that I ordered off Etsy this weekend for my Duck Dynasty loving man. How cute is this?

@harperlynn:  Wait is this your first baby? Hubby is the 3rd child or bun in the oven is the 3rd? That is too cute! I am the same way I am very happy with a happy healthy baby :] I have two girl names picked out already haha. I have always loved one and the other we found together and I’m pretty set on one or other other. Boys we havent narrowed at all. We decided we would have 2 or 3 picked out and not decide for sure until baby comes. We want to see baby before we name it! We call baby the bun right now. And if I accidently say my bun, he corrects me and says, OUR bun. I love it :]

Just got back from the Dr’s office. My HCG level on Friday was 85, the nurse said we caught the pregnancy early. My progesterone was 6000. She said that they want it to be at least 1300, so my progesterone levels are golden. I did a redraw today and I’ll get those results tomorrow to see if my HCG is increasing as it should. We’ll continue checking it until the HCG hits 3000 then we can schedule the ultrasound.

Gah it’s all so exciting!! I’m going to be a nutcase until I get my lab results tomorrow!
