So my mom tells me that I'm carrying the baby in my hips! Because my bump has grown, but not much, while my hips are all over the place!

Definitely more oval like a watermelon. My sciatica is starting to act up.  It's going from the right butt cheek down into my leg.  Happened with all 3 of my previous pregnancies.  Oh joy! :smileyindifferent:

Yes, a lot of us have been sick!  Bleck. 

This comes from my experience, but with my boys, I was nauseous for a couple of weeks in the first trimester and that was it.  I had great pregnancies with them, even had the 'glow."  LoL  This time, I'm just plain ugly!  I even started throwing up before my missed period.  How are you suppose to feel beautiful when you are nauseous or throwing up all the waking hours of the day?!  LoL  It really has been night and day for me! 

I hated waiting to find out the gender, too!  My husband and I found out early because I'm high risk.  I have to have ultrasounds every two weeks.  We found out for sure she is a girl at my 16 week u/s! 

Do you have your u/s scheduled yet?!

Welcome to the board!  I had horrible morning sickness right up until about 16 and a half weeks!  So I have very recently been "better."  I still get nauseous in the late night right before bed.  Hopefully you'll be the same! 

You do meet some of the wives tales criteria for carrying a girl.  :smileyhappy:  I'm carrying very high, have been sicker than I have ever been with my other pregnancies, and my face looks like I am constantly on my period.  LoL  I "knew" I was having a girl with this pregnancy, because it has been so different than with my boys.  Sure enough, she is a little girl!   Oh, and like I said in my previous post, DH and I both had girl dreams before we found out.  It's so cool!

Anyways, welcome to the board!  :smileyhappy:

Hi Everyone!  Just wanted to introduce myself first, as I'm new to the board.  My name is Kris.  A co-worker told me about ivillage so I decided to sign up.  I'm 15 weeks today with my first baby, and I have no idea how I'm carrying, lol.  It seems high to me, and there doesnt seem to be anything in my hips.  I've gained about 3 pounds, however my pants havent fit for a long time- probably week 6-8.  My face broke out in the beginning, but now seems to be under control.  The sickness has been TERRIBLE, and I hope I'm turning a bend soon.  Yesterday was my first day with limited nausea so I'm hopeful :smileywink: I've hear thats girls make you sick, although I dont seem to be carrying like they say girls carry.  What does everyone think??
