    I can’t believe we’re already on part 2! Can we add a poll or something? Not sure about what so clearly I’m super helpful haha.

    I just like the privacy of the fb thread, and it’s easier to get notifications and use from my phone rather than Wbee at work haha.  When everyones ready that’s cool 🙂 Serves the same purpose as here!

    @FMM:  Thanks for starting the thread!  You can do a poll about when you plan on sharing the news with friends &/or family?

    @BellaDee:  I may hop onto a FB group but I think I’m going to wait until I’m a little bit farther along 🙂

    @NLbride:  Woohoo congrats! I’m hoping to get a 3+ on Saturday, I’ll be 5w4d then 🙂

     

    As for the poll, we’ve already told immediate family and best friends. We’ll tell grandparents/generally become more relaxed with the news after we hear a heartbeat. I’ll be exactly 12 weeks on my birthday on March 5th, so *if* we do a big FB announcement, I feel like that’d be the day. Still on the fence about whether I even want to do that.

    @FMM:  thanks for the new thread 

     

    I think I’m in a minority, I peed on the one and only test I had in the house, and haven’t felt the slightest urge to take another. I did have betas drawn though that almost tripled in 48 hours so maybe that’s the difference.  🙂

    @terpalum10:  I have a lot of people who do FB announcments.  I’ve decided not to post on Facebook.

     

    Is anyone rediculously hungry?  If I am not eating, I get queasy.  There is a sweet spot for about half an hour after I’ve eaten  that I am not queasy or hungry, but that goes away REAL fast.

    @amandasf:  Yeah I don’t know about them either. Inevitably there’s always someone you forgot to tell, etc. We’ll see how I feel when it gets closer.

    SO. RIDICULOUSLY. HUNGRY. My only real symptoms are increased hunger and fatigue. Like you, I only get nauseated when I haven’t eaten lately or gotten enough protein. I’m usually not a huge eater and I measure out my meal servings, so it’s blatantly obvious that something is out of the norm for me. I can also feel something in there when I try to suck in my tummy – I’m sure it’s things shifting around, but still, weirdly encouraging!

    @amandasf:  I am in the same boat. I feel like I am constantly stuffing my face so I don’t feel sick (not that it works). Over the weekend I felt my stomach growl for the first time in weeks and it felt weird. I am almost having to force myself to eat though. At dinner last night I just didn’t feel like eating but made myself have a little bit. Halfway through I started feeling better and went back and got seconds.

    Has anyone made comments about you looking sick? My mom told me over the weekend that I looked a little “green around the edges.” Kind of like I was hungover. I said that is exactly how I feel. No one else has said anything, maybe she is the only one comfortable enought to say something like that.
