    How many weeks until 2nd tri?: 

    3 weeks and 1 day

    Weight gain/bloat: 

    -2lbs on gain but I feel twice the size as far as bloating goes

    Unpleasant Symptoms:

    Cold symptoms, cramps and pains, boobs still sore, horrible skin, constantly exhausted, leg cramps at night, and horrible mood swings/moodiness.

    Any pleasant symptoms?:

    No nausea so far!

    Cravings: 

    Pizza Hut breadsticks dipped in marinara sauce. Chocolate. Fruits

    Next appointment & what will happen during: 

    March 12th, get to hear the little heartbeat!!! Yay!!!

    Any upcoming travel plans (babymoon?), or where would you go if you could?:

    No plans but I really want to go to a beach and lie in the sun and sleep/read all day long if I could. I know you’re not supposed to lie in the sun though so really just a week off from everything and not be at home so I don’t feel obligated to clean or get stuff done, or feel bad when I don’t.

    Yay, thanks for setting this up!

    How many weeks until 2nd tri?:  3 weeks and 2 days

    Weight gain/bloat:  I’m feeling especially bloated, especially at night. I seem to be up somewhere between 1 and 2 pounds at 9 1/2 weeks.

    Unpleasant Symptoms:   I’ve been pretty lucky overall.  Some nausea, but it’s very manageable and no puking so far.  Some breast tenderness, hungry, moody, achiness in my hips and back, and lots of hair growth.

    Any pleasant symptoms?:  My boobs have finally grown a little! πŸ™‚

    Cravings: Nothing really specific, I’m just hungry all the time.  Sweets sometimes make me a little sick though.

    Next appointment & what will happen during: On the 27th, so 13 more days.  I don’t know what all they’ll do then, but we are scheduled to get our first u/s and should get to hear the heartbeat.  Cannot wait to see the little peanut!

    Any upcoming travel plans (babymoon?), or where would you go if you could?: Nothing specific planned yet, but I’d like to do something this summer.  Maybe something beach-y and relaxing, while I can still fly.

    @cowgirlace:  Awww that’s so sweet what your Darling Husband did.

    I just have to take a second to say how lucky I am to such such a wonderful man as well. He has been nothing but patient and caring and loving and amazing so far!! I seriously don’t know what I’d do without him!

    @cowgirlace:  I calculated when I would hit 13 weeks, but I’m not sure if that is right.  I agree that the counting is confusing!

    Cravings: dill triscuits, macaroni, colby cheese, sour patch kids candy

    @cowgirlace:  Thanks for the new thread!

    How many weeks until 2nd tri?:  Five more weeks!  Seems like an eternity.

    Weight gain/bloat:  Neither

    Unpleasant Symptoms:   Gas, heartburn, mood swings, sore boobs, food aversions, some nausea.

    Any pleasant symptoms?:  I can pretty much get away with anything with my husband.

    Cravings:  Carbs, especially macaroni and cheese and cereal.  I can’t get enough milk.

    Next appointment & what will happen during:  February 25th for my first ultrasound and blood work!  I can’t wait to see my baby and hear the heartbeat.  

    Any upcoming travel plans (babymoon?), or where would you go if you could?:  My husband and I booked a trip last night to San Antonio, TX.  I went when I was a little kid but he’s never been.  We’re going at the end of March during his spring break.  We’ll probably try to get away again during the summer if we can, maybe overnight to Atlantic City.

    How many weeks until 2nd tri?:   4 and a half to 12 weeks; 5 and a half to 13 weeks

    Weight gain/bloat:  lost about 5 pounds through MS.

    Unpleasant Symptoms:   MS has subsided a lot, or I have gotten it under better control… not sure which.  Sore boobs; horrible skin

    Any pleasant symptoms?:  That’s funny…

    Cravings: Chocolate (all the time)!  

    Next appointment & what will happen during:  March 6 – 10 weeks appointment.  We heard the heartbeat at 6 and everything was checking out well, so she said not to be back until then.  

    Any upcoming travel plans (babymoon?), or where would you go if you could?:  We are actually moving in July from TN to FL!  Eeeek…. not looking forward to that! However, we both have a week off from work in May that we are taking to look for a new place to live.  I’m hoping we can find some time to relax in there and go to the beach as well… so, sort of for finding a place to live and maybe combine with mini-babymoon.

    How many weeks until 2nd tri?: 3 weeks until 12, 4 to 13. After the dating scan last week, looks like my exact due date is Sept 20, which means I’ll prob have the babies in the 1st week of the month at very latest.

    Weight gain/bloat: No weight gain, but I’ve got bloat out the wazoo. Literally, it’s going out the ‘wazoo’. All the time. Shame.

    Unpleasant Symptoms:  gas, weird pooing (nothing for a week, then poo’d 3 times in the last 36 hours), emotional, NAUSEA, headaches, dizziness, exhaustion, and crazy dreams. 

    Any pleasant symptoms?: My rack is looking pretty legendary.

    Cravings:  changes every day, but I have been craving a BLT for the past 2 days. I think it’s because of the Helman’s commercials on The Taste. Last week it was Tuna salad. Tonight it was frozen peas in a cup. Mmmmm. 

    Next appointment & what will happen during: Interview with a vampire and medical history on March 4th, then scans for Fish n Chips on the 13th. 

    Any upcoming travel plans (babymoon?), or where would you go if you could?: We’re planning to head to Switzerland this summer, though I don’t know if that’s a baby moon since it’s more just a cheap driving/BnB holiday with my brothers. We may take the train to Paris for a few days when I’m closer to the due date, but nothing major.
