OK, I'll go first:

- Are you pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or did you recently give birth?
Oh, I'm definitely pregnant. I'm getting fat, am irritable, my feet hurt, I suffer from restless leg syndrome and insomnia while pregnant, and I'm waddling instead of walking. All the weight I gained went right to my thighs and bum. Ugh, how I hate being pregnant (don't mistake that for not being thankful, I just physically HATE the way I look and feel while pregnant!!!).

- Was this pregnancy (or baby/ies) planned or a big surprise?
Pretty much a surprise. We tried for about five months then decided to stop trying about two months before I wound up pregnant. Isn't that always the way it happens???

- How far along are you?
I was 24 weeks yesterday. Still have three months to go. Oh how I wish I could make those three months go by faster...

- How are you feeling?
Fat and icky. Still having occasional bouts of nausea, too. That's supposed to be over with by now!!!

- Are you having a boy, a girl, or keeping it a surprise?
A boy.

- Names???
We're stuck. DH wants a junior but I don't like my DH's name. I want to name him after my late G'Pop with whom I was so very close. So my vote is for G'Pop's name as FN and DH's name as middle name; DH's vote is for DH's name as FN, G'Pop's name as MN. So far, neither of us are willing to budge. So where do we go from here???

- Random thoughts you'd like to share?
Did I mention I HATE being pregnant???

It was a surprise, but one I wasn't trying very hard to avoid.

Just into week 12


How are you feeling?


Still sick as a dog in the a.m. Starting to get a little bump already- is that normal this early???


Are you having a boy, a girl, or keeping it a surprise?


I'm not sure yet, but I'm hoping to find out next week when I go for my Ultrascan. I'm not sure what, if any, info they'll give me

This one was a surprise although we don't try at all to prevent pregnancies.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. Everyone shows at different times. I wouldn't say I was actually "showing" by 10 weeks, but I definitely couldn't button my pants anymore. By 12 weeks, I was definitely starting to sport a baby bump so I think you're right on track. You have a great outlook about this pregnancy; thanks for all the positive energy! Keep it comin'!

I'm sorry to hear you've had a cold. It's tough to suffer through a cold while pregnant, for sure! But I'm so glad to hear of someone who's feeling well during pregnancy otherwise! You're certainly in the minority (at least based on the people I know)! How fabulous (I'm so jealous!!!)! Please let us know how announcing your news goes -- I love to hear of people's reactions. : )

Congrats on entering T2 -- hopefully you'll stop feeling nauseous and so tired soon. How exciting for this baby to be the tie-breaker! I just weaned my two year old the week before Christmas; I started getting my periods back last February. I'm pretty sure they came back so soon because I night-weaned Eva two Decembers ago (Dec 2008). I'm pretty sure that was the key to my cycles returning. I had planned to tandem nurse Eva with the new baby but my nipples became so incredibly sore and sensitive from this pregnancy that I decided to wean her. Although I wish she still had the nutrients and antibodies from breast milk, I must say, I'm enjoying the extra time I have. : ) How awful that you had a stomach bug. I hope you're back to normal soon and start feeling a return of energy that T2 often offers.

Hello there. I'm glad to see you posting! Congratulations on your expected baby girl! What a wonderful surprise. It's amazing how many of us wind up pregnant after stopping trying (myself included). Expecting your first child is such a thrilling experience. Of course expecting subsequent babies is thrilling too, but the first is filled with such wonder and mystery -- not to mention a bunch of other wonderful yet overwhelming feelings. You should introduce yourself (officially) in the "Welcome and Intro" section of our board; I bet a lot more ladies would see your intro there. : )

Wow, only 7 more weeks to go (+/-)! Oh, how I envy you for gaining only 12 lbs! I'm only 24+ weeks pregnant and I think I've gained about 40 so far. I refuse to look at the scale when I go to the doc's and I refuse to weigh myself at home. I'm usually pretty thin but when I'm pregnant, I get downright BIG (I gained 60 with my first daughter, lost all but 13 lbs, then gained 70+ with my second daughter, lost about 80, and now I'm well on my way to hugeness once again... YUCK! So I can totally relate to how you feel!

I love the name you chose! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us. I look forward to seeing you posting around more regularly. BTW, I'm Joan, am 42, and am expecting our third baby in May. Best wishes to you.
