- Wedding: July 2009
hi ladies, wondering if i can join you? im not due til around March 7th though (gues im right around 4 weeks) but i figure its prety close to Febuary. i just found out today! im so beyond excited!it still doesnt feel real to me. its crazy! my symptoms are just very light cramps (is that normal??) and super sniffer, smells smell horrible. everything SMELLS bad. urghh. I am starting to get a little sick after i eat certain things but other then that i feel kinda normal… Its all still so surreal
Congratulations!! Of course you can join us! I’m technically not due til march 1st either but since it’s leap year my doc was like, oh, well, either one! (feb 29 or march 1). She might be more definitive when I get an ultrasound or have an appointment. I think your symptoms are normal. I myself haven’t really had any cramps besides minor lower back pain but I have heard/read a lot about cramps in the first few weeks being normal. I agree that it is very surreal and in fact I feel like it won’t feel real until I see the little bugger on a screen. I’m also very worried about miscarrying, not sure why so worried, but I guess that’s normal too. I’m also a worrier so there ya go. Anyway, welcome again!! YAY!
Of course! You could be early, or any of us could be late, so I think its fair.
Thanks ladies! Im sure i will have tons of questions lol since this is my first baby 🙂 this is so exciting, esp since we will all be expiereincing the same things around the same time. kinda cool! im glad i have some girls to tallk to, most of my friends dont have babies yet ( a couple do but not really super close to them) so this is nice. I have been reading what to expect when your expecting but im prob gonna get some other books to, i love to read. I havent really wrapped my mind out that im pregnant yet. lol.
@avantlaletter: i hear ya about the misscarrying. im so afraid of that also, its one of my biggest fears. I totally understand where your coming from. Were only telling close family/ maybe 2 friends until after the first trimester.
Is this everyones first baby?
K I have no idea when my due date is… I am still trying to find a doctor over the holiday weekend for cryin in the night!! But wanted to join you ladies.
So the flakey skin is no joke… woke up this morning with big boobs and a flakey face : /
How old are you? (if you don’t mind me asking) – I’m 21 and AvantLaLettre is 29. I think it’s cool to hear the different ages women choose to have their first baby 🙂
and YES cramping is totally normal. My fourth-fifth week (basically the first week I found out I was pregnant) I had cramping like crazy. At first I thought it was menstrual crampings, til it didn’t come. But it’s normal because the baby is attaching to the uterine wall, and the development of the placenta begins, so that’s why it hurts.
I have been reading like crazy too! Glad to hear someone else is an avid reader. I love knowing what’s going on haha.
I am really liking The Pregnancy Book by Dr. Sears, as well as his “Baby Book”. Both are very good. A friend of mine gave me “Eating Expectantly” which helped with the diet of being pregnant. Somewhat unrelated to pregnancy, but I am also reading “The Green Smoothie Revolution” which is REALLY good! Since being pregnant, I’ve been drinking a green smoothie every morning to help me with my folic acid intake (super important for pregnancy!!). So I recommend those :):)
Can I join too?? Based on what I figured out online, my due date is March 12th! I went in to the urgent care center today for a blood test and will find out all the details tomorrow when the blood results are back. I didn’t realize they take a whole vile of blood from your arm vein. Ouch! I guess I better get used to that :/
Who have you told yet? Right now only my DH and I know. I am going to tell my parents soon, but I kind of like having it a secret. If this is anything like our wedding planning, my mom is going to go cookoo bonkers bananas over everything and I’m not in the mood for it.
How are you ladies feeling? I am SO BLOATED! We didn’t do anything over the holiday weekend as we are going out of town next weekend to celebrate our first anniversary, so it wasn’t as though I binged on food and wine, but I seriously have never been this bloated before. Ugh.
@miss-spunkin.- i just turned 24 🙂 What type of smothies are you drinking? do u buy them inn the store or do you make them homemade? im curious to know bc i want to try to incresase my folic acid, ive been taking gummy prenatals (vitacare or something like that name) ive been on them for a couple months while we were trying to concieve and so far they dont upset my stomach since ive been pregnant.
i think i will be five weeks on friday. i had my first doctors apointment with my GP yesterday and go for blood wrok today then i have my first obgyn appointment august 2nd. Im excited but nervous just want everything to be ok.
@mrs.loubouton: i am alsso starting to feel a litle bloated. surpisngly by boobs only hurt a little but i can feel that they are changing. Also the gagging while smeeling certain foods/things sucks adn happens frequently. ive noticed ive been getting mroe tired too. Other then that i feel good.
Of course my hubby knows. And we told my immediate family over the weekend (parents, sisters, brothers & grandparents) and then a couple really close friends know. Otherwise no one else. We’re telling his family over skype this weekend (they live on the East Coast) and then we’ll be waiting to tell anyone else until the first trimester is over.
Alright, question for you ladies.
As a “symptom” of pregnancy, are any you experience “hair loss”? Like while you’re showing and you’re shampooing or conditioning your hair, is more of it coming out than normal?
I know this is so weird haha, but mine is!
Now, I do have a history of “hair loss” when I’m really stressed. It started as a teenager, if I was really stressed about something, whenever I was showering, my hair would fall out. Not enough to notice, but a lot for me…
Anyhow, the last week or two, every time I condition my hair I get so much hair stuck between my fingers and I know this sounds so gross lol but just wondering if it’s just me or not?!
Now, I don’t feel stressed at all about the baby, so I don’t think it’s just stress, but I could be wrong…
We have only told both sets of parents, I have told 1 friend, and 2 people I work with every day who I always go to drinks with and it was impossible to hide. DH has been good and not told anyone else. I wish I didn’t have to tell them, but I’ll only be working with them for another month so I guess it’s not a big deal. It’s just so hard being the one who not only has to carry the secret, but also, not drink, stop getting coffee together in the mornings, etc!!
Do your partners all feel like this is real? I think it’s hard for mine since he doesn’t see any changes and I still look “normal” (minus the bloat which I haven’t really showed him!) My DH keeps saying… “I still don’t really believe it.. ” although yesterday I was soo sick and soo tired he was like “Sorry, but I think I’m starting to believe that you’re pregnant.” 🙂
