1. I’ve been meaning to join this thread for awhile but have been coo-coo busy…and now i’m super excited to be here:)

2. CONGRATS to all the ladies who came from the 6months&up boards! I am so so so happy to see you here=) reunited and it feeeells so gooooood!

How long TTC: 8 months.

Brief TTC Background Refresher:  It was nothing. Thank goodness. Basically i’d been on BC since I was 16 and it took 6 months for my body to even ovulate. At the 6 month mark, I ovulated. For some reason or another I didn’t get pregnant that cycle…cycle 7: hmm, nothing. So, I started to be a anal about it. I started having sex like 2x a day and hanging my legs in the air and BOOM…cycle 8=BFP

First child?: Yes.

How far along/EDD: 21w2d DD: OCT 12

Gender: Baby Boy!

Milestones:  SO.MUCH.MOVEMENT! Also: now my stomach is actually super hard and very apparent. From here on out its just boring and waiting until birth! AH…

Struggles: Physically: sleep is tough because my belly is hard. nothing else, really…Emotionally: I’ve stopped worrying as much but I still am obsessed with reading and googling which I know I need to slow down at this point.

What are you most fearful/concerned about: actually….not having enough time. I’m due in 4 months and although we have everything planned…I havent actually executed anything yet. I think in a week or 2 i’ll order EVERYTHING at once for his room. Then my shower will a month from now….I think by my due date I would have barely finished.

@Running Elley:  Your crystal light idea was great. I actually was going to get some, but then I saw this Rasberry Lemonade and it was heaven. I think we are going to use our shirts for my DDs that I had bought before I had my MC and make a Father’s day card for our Dad’s and Grandpa’s. I am not 100% I can though, the shirts might be a jinx.

@Running Elley:  ok so I can’t remember if it was here you mentioned it or on Fall Babes but you said you worry about premature labor. Is that because of progesterone? Because I read up on how women with low P can go into early labor and I’ve read how women who walk into the hospitalw ith early labor are oftentime injected with P and sent home because P can allow the body to labor at its due time. I don’t know enough about it though…..how early are we talkin?! *yikes*

@dodgercpkl:  Sorry πŸ™

Girls, I’m getting sick! As in nausea. It’s nearly unbearable for a few hours at a time butOno puking yet. Today is the first day I thought I might.  I’m starving at every moment but literally nothing sounds appetizing. Any advice?

@JaneyD:  Toast, fruit, soup, mashed potatoes, crackers, cereal, jello. Stick with bland foods. Small frequent snacking helps keep the stomach settles. The best thing I have tried is shakes/ice cream- it is tolerated well in the stomach (we actually recomed it to chemo patients) and counts as fluids:)

@Running Elley:  Ok gotchya. Phew!

Question for all: does preterm labor automatically mean c-section? God forbid a mom goes into labor at say…27 weeks….does that mean they will actually let her labor for hours and with an epi and all that if the baby is that tiny? I fear c-sections JUST AS MUCH as I fear an early labor. Well, nearly as much….

@JaneyD:  omgosh i’m so sorry. That feeling is terrible…and from my experience: nothing helped me. So, I have no advice BUT I have words of hope: it.gets.better. I Swear. I was suicidal when I was in my first tri and I told my husband I hated pregnancy …but now:) hehe…i’m back to my old self. It’ll get better!

@JaneyD:  So, I’m sorry you’re feeling sick, but YAY! Such a good sign :o) Things that settled my stomach were ginger ale and anything citrus…like lemonade watered down. Crackers of course…I found that keeping a snack on hand at all times just to keep my stomach slightly full helped. Of course there were times that I never wanted to eat anything!

@TurtleDoves:  I don’t think pre-term labor necessarily means c-section. My DH’s friend’s wife went into preterm labor at 30 weeks b/c they couldn’t stop her cervix from dilating. She had the baby naturally.
