I am!!! My reason is so so simple. I just think that the world is no longer filled with many surprises, and this is one of, if not THE, biggest one you can have. I want to go through these 9 months and have that “reward” so to speak at the end of it all with the doctor saying “It’s A….!”

I’m offiially 7w+0d today = wootness! Again, no morning sickness…how long will this madness last!? lol. The runs are guaranteed for me though, daily, without a miss. I know, gross.
I don’t think I can be team green…I need to know! lol
Hope your blood pressure comes down! I was extremely tired in the beginning. Now I feel like I can last a little longer at night. My only symptoms now are a bit of sore boobs (definitely less than two weeks ago) and the runs, as I mentioned above. lol
Wow girl – I haven’t noticed my boobs getting bigger at all!

We had agreed to be Team Green when we were first seriously discussing TTC. But the moment I got a BFP, DH changed his mind.

I have always known that I couldn’t be a team greener. I am counting down the days til we can find out! I figure it’s still just as big as a suprise finding out at 20 weeks as it is at 40. I’ll still be just excited at the birth regardless of whether it’s a boy or girl.
@MrsKitchenQueen I’d be up for it.

MrsKitchenQueen: I’m willing to try this! Sounds delicious. 🙂
LuluH: Since I have an 8 year old daughter already. I’m willing to be team green, but the husband is not. If he knows, I want to know too! LOL

we are on team green. Mainly because we don’t want people to buy us a lot of stuff because it’s a boy or girl and we don’t want to buy a lot of stuff because we know it’s a boy or a girl. We also want the surprise.

Does anyone else have the overwhelming feeling that they are having twins? I dream about it a lot and always automatically think of the baby as “they”. Not sure that I’d want twins I just think its strange. Guess I’ll find out in four weeks!

Funny you ask that…. YES! I’m really not sure why I have that feeling and obviuosly I won’t know until my first u/s. I’ve just have a feeling, been thinking how i would fit 2 cribs in the nursery … All kinds of crazy thoughts. You have to let me know if your feeling is a reality.

Nope! Even with all the little symptoms, I still can’t wrap my head around the idea that I’m even having one baby! Definitely not feeling like twins. 🙂

lol, no I can’t say that I “feel” that I’m having twins, but Dh would love that lol.

Absolutely not! I NEED to know – I’m actually planning on getting an elective gender scan done (I found two places near me that offer them – one does them as early as 14 weeks; the other at 15 weeks). I’m also a person that hates surprises, especially if I know they’re coming (like I would never be able to handle being told my DH was taking me on a trip somewhere and not telling me where – completely out of the blue surprises are nice sometimes). Since I obviously know this baby is coming, and will be either a girl or a boy, I need to know what it will be. LOL, I’m awful, I know!
I had a dream that I was having twins about a week ago, but I don’t really feel like I am otherwise. Other than thinking it might be nice to only have to be pregnant once in my life and still have the two kids we want, I don’t think I want twins – seems like so much work! Not to mention the double cost of daycare and everything else all at the same time.

I am happy to share about the tea. The nurse said black tea is fine along with ginger tea and peppermint tea. She also suggested if I just need to get a warm drink fix to try hot water with lemon in it. I should have already thought of the hot lemon water…I’m sure that will satisfy me 🙂
Oh yeah…the other thing she told me. She said not to work out on an empty stomach. She said doing so causes your liver to release chemicals that aren’t good for our little embryos.
As for finding out the sex…we are planning on team green. DH is definitely starting to waiver. It seems like if we knew now we could save $ by buying things on sale ahead of time. Maybe I’m starting to change my mind too! I agree with the others who have said it’s nice to have a surprise!!
I’d be willing to partcipate in a private FB group too.

Hi ladies! 🙂 I *think* I get to join you. I have tested positive on two tests…
EDD: May 28-30, 2013

How long TTC: We got lucky first time not using protection. It still seems a little surreal. I am hoping that is normal and that I will feel better after seeing the doc.
First Child: Yes it is 🙂
Boy/Girl: Would be so happy either way.
First doctors appointment: Literally sitting here waiting for the office to open so I can call.
How do you feel: Not totally awesome. Trying to stay calm, eat healthy. I definitely have a lot of symptoms!
Who have you told: Only DH. I made him come in the bathroom and shut the door. (Not like anyone else was there except the dog!)
Cravings: Dairy! And nachos 🙂
