Spring/Summer 2012 Baby Bumps!

How is everyone?

I thought we could have a catch up as there are so many new BFP and we can learn what to expect from you mummy's to be that are further along.


6weeks 6 days


Tiredness has hit but not too bad I am also glad I am not working so can plod along at my own rate.


Couple of waves of MS but nothing to worry me.


Still spotting each day but think getting less and brown, no clots or red for 10 days.


My sight has altered!! I have had glasses for my 40th Bday and hardly ever wear them but am finding I need them more and more.


THE WORST SYMPTOM YET is nipple pain. I had this twice over the weekend my nipples went white then blue and back to red, the pain feels like burning and brings tears to my eyes. I have had this before maybe 2-3 times a year max before AF and last 10 mins, these lasted 45 -60 mins and I didn't know what to do with myself. The only thing that helped was heating my wheat bag up and holding to me. I think its vasospasm caused by Raynaud's and could recur during pregnancy and breast feeding owwwww!!! I will definatley tell midwife when I see her.


 


So how are you? H x

Hello FarmBride!!!


I will be 12weeks tomorrow!!! :)  I'm so excited!  DH and I have our 12 week appt today and are hoping to hear the heartbeat.  If everything goes as planned and everything looks good we're going to post on FB tonight!


My m/s was way better last week but then this weekend I started feeling sick again and now i'm dealing with a sinus infection or a cold...DH has it too.  Thank goodness I got my flu shot a month ago!  But it's pretty miserable.  My throat hurts and teh drainage doesn't help with my tummy. 


The m/s is better but the fatigue is still there...I notice that when i'm alert it way better than at 8 weeks but I still bite it pretty hard when i'm tired and try to take a nap everyday during my lunch break.


The biggest thing i'm seeing a problem with is motivation.  My house is a mess right now.  DH and I decided that after our appt this afternoon we need to dust our bedroom, change the sheets, and clean the kitchen...I think we're both thinking if we clean that some how that will make our sickness go away...lol.  But I know we're sick from all the rain we got over the weekend and the cool fronts.  I'm also starting to feel some slight tugs in my abdomen along with some itching along my stomach!  So i'm hoping that means i'm shifting and will slighty pop soon!


I hope everyone is doing well!!!  I have to say that I'm very excited about getting closer to the 2nd trimester.  I'm really hoping that I get some more energy (i'm ready to rearrange my house and get it organized like everyone talks about during the 2nd tri) and i'm hoping to not be a bump on a log!  Also i'm hoping for more of a bump, i'm super excited about finding out the gender, and i'm more excited about not having to keep it a big secret anymore!


Also I think i'm most excited that almost all of us will be in our 2nd trimester during all of the holidays which will be nice for us and our families! :)


We're going on a cruise the day after christmas thru new years...we're going with my parents (it was their christmas present to us) but we're using it as a babymoon too!!!

Good morning, ladies!


9 weeks tomorrow! I just want to hit second trimester soo bad...first tri has been very hard on me and I feel like I've been in this stage forever. Although I went through a couple of really bad weeks of m/s, I've finally figured out how to beat it. If I take half a pill of Unisom a night, I'll feel pretty ok the next day. I can finally eat a meal now, although not a full one...so excited about that :)


That seems to be my only complaint, as far as symptoms go. Everything else seems so mild to me when compared to the nausea. I think the one weird thing I've noticed is I haven't had an increased need to pee. I know that's a popular symptom but I had only gone once during work yesterday and I'm drinking/eating plenty!


I've also noticed that I'm getting a teeny tiny bump. I can't suck it in and it's somewhat hard. Dh gave me a light belly rub last night and he noticed it, too. My jeans are pretty uncomfortable when I'm sitting down so I've started using the elastic band trick. It's really helped! Maybe I'll be an early popper??


Also, my MIL is flying in tomorrow so she'll get the good news at dinner :) I can't wait to see her reaction (Which will be crying. She always cries, lol) and hope to get it on tape.


And ditto, Julia on being in our second tri for the holidays!! I'm so very thankful I'll be further away from the crappy feelings (hopefully) and actually be able to enjoy the festivities! I can't imagine how crappy Christmas would be if it was spent between the couch & bathroom :(

Karen - I totally sympathise with the m/s. I'd gladly take the other symptoms if it meant I didn't feel sick constantly!


Good luck telling the MIL. We are hoping to tell my mum tonight :)

6 weeks and 4 days. 


And I feel fine!  I haven't had any m/s and I'm not really anymore tired than I normally am.  The only thing different is I start to get a little queasy if I don't eat as soon as I realize I'm hungry and I wake up in the morning starving.  That's about it.

I'll be 12 weeks on Friday! How did that even happen? I'm still tired, but feeling much more able to get things done. I did some serious decluttering in the kitchen yesterday, and it felt really good to be cleaning up after weeks of being too tired and busy to even think about it. I get stressed when the house is really messy.


I've also been on a new recipe kick. I've always been a bit of a susie homemaker, so I'm glad I feel good enough to do the things I enjoy again. The bellies of my family are glad, too. lol I've learned that I can't satisfy my sweet tooth as much as I could before getting preggo. Now I get headaches if I eat too much. Boo! I made this amazing blondie, and I couldn't pig out.


Now I'm just waiting for the holidays to begin. This is seriously my favorite time of year. I live for Nov and Dec. To me, putting up the Christmas tree is ok anytime after Halloween. lol

I'm 16w1d and feeling pretty good.  Definitely showing and rockin' my maternity pants!  The 2nd trimester has been great so far, the m/s has mostly subsided, and I started feeling the baby move.  It really feels like bubbles.  I'm still tired all the time though.  My new favorite pastime is napping.

I love this thread. I hope you guys start to get better soon (nausea, colds and all!)

I am 12w2d today. I have an appt with the maternal fetal specialist tomorrow for an u/s. They will be checking for things like down syndrome indicators(nuchal scan), encepholy (sp?), etc. and to see how I am progressing.
Yesterday was my birthday and DH and I finally DTD! TMI, I know, but it has been about 2 months since the last time. It was awesome. Happy Birthday to me! ;)
I now have a raging case of motion sickness. Planes, subways, cars. everything :(
Also, even though I had no ms before I am getting queasy if I don't eat as soon as I'm hungry or eat too much and I actually wake up at night with hunger pangs. crazy...
DH is on his way to Nashville right now to look at some houses and hopefully sign a lease while I stay here to go to my appt, keep packing the house up and show the house to prospective renters.
We are planning on making our FB announcement on Monday or Tuesday. :)

Yay Jady! I'm not the only one DTD now. LOL Happy belated birthday, too! I've got one coming up soon...I so hate bdays now. I started referring to it as the anniversary of my 29th. People seem to enjoy that, and nobody asks how old I actually am anymore. :)


So, when is the big move? Nashville would be so much fun! I love the drive down south. We actually drove all the way to FL a couple years ago. It stopped being fun when we hit Georgia. The scenery wasn't good, and I made the mistake of trying boiled peanuts. lol Who thought that was a good idea?!

Hahahaha, I swear we both felt like we had forgotten how to do it but it all kicked in about 3.2 seconds into it :) I slept better last night than I have this entire pregnancy.
Thank you! Anniversary of my 29th? Love it! Totally stealing that from you ;)
When is your birthday?
I made the drive from Ft Lauderdale to NY years ago. never again. The worst part is getting out of Florida. Most other areas you go through 2 -3 states in the time it takes to get out of FL. Boiled peanuts are horrible. A lot of people in the south love them and since I love peanuts I made the mistake of trying one when I first moved to FL and saw them. Ugh,disgusting. My BIL loves them and DH likes them every so often.
Depending on the move in date we can secure it will be the last week of this month or first week of November. I am hoping for this month. I happen to have a client in Chattanooga the first week of Nov and if we move in Oct I can drive to it from Nashville instead of flying.
If I can ignore all of the crap we still have left to do I am getting excited about this move. I am a city girl so the idea of TN scared me at first but I have heard nothing but good things about Nashville. New baby, new city, what next?!?! :)

You thought you'd forgotten how to do it...too funny! I've been trying to tell y'all that being preggo actually makes it better. It's weird but true.


My bday is Nov 6th. The only good part is that it's the only time I can get my mom to make me fried chicken. It is the best thing on the planet. :)


We didn't go all the way through FL, just to WDW. My favorite place! I'm such a big kid. If it didn't cost a bajillion dollars I would go 4 times a year. lol GA was the only snoozefest take forever state. It didn't help that I was sick from those stupid peanuts.


So, you get to spend Christmas in TN! The mountains looks so beautiful in the winter. I'm big on seasons, so I could never live anywhere that didn't have them. We've been talking about moving to the carolinas just to have more scenery, and maybe milder seasons. IN is just not pretty. Unless you like flat unchanging land. I've never lived in the city at all, and I can't imagine myself there. I took the test on findyourspot.com, and my ideal place to live is Mt Airy, NC...the birthplace of Andy Griffith. lol It's actually the town that the show is based on. So...clearly I'm a small town girl. :)

Congrats on DTD, Jady!! :) We got the green light from my midwife but I'm just too queasy to do it. Dh keeps trying to make his move but I just give him a look like, 'if you touch me, I'll barf on you' lol. I'll have to make the effort soon. Poor guy is in agony...


And Julie, fried chicken sounds AMAZING!! Omg I want some now! *drooling*

It's nice to know you're right where you should be! I was just watching a Man vs Food in Seattle...I want to come eat there! I torture myself with food tv far too often. I now officially want to travel to every major city just to eat. Maybe that will be my retirement plan. lol

I'm either eight weeks or seven weeks and four days depending on which doctor you talk to. I feel like horrible. I was in the ER over the weekend. Ended up being a waste of time and solved nothing. So I went back in yesterday to an actual OB doctor. Found out I have hyperemesis again with this pregnancy. So I was sent down for IV fluids because I was beyond dehydrated. He is switching the kind of Zofran I am on in the hope to find a good combineation for me. So I hopefully do not end up in the hospital again like I was with daughter. Today I feel better but not a hundred percent. I caught the cold that has been going around. Have my fingers crossed that I don't loose anymore weight. I thought I was doing good and putting on a little weight but when we went in yesterday I had lost seven pounds. On Monday we meet our midwife and have our first appointment. We're really excited to go.
