Okay, I'm up for a challenge ;)

First question: Do you ladies have any symptoms?

I don't know if I'm lucky, but I actually don't feel pregnant AT ALL. Occasionally, I get tuckered out before I think I should, or I feel hungry when I know I've had enough to eat, but I'm not having the normal pregnancy symptoms I thought I'd have. I'm not even weepy like I was with my other pregnancies (m/cs included). I hate to wish for m/s cause I know how awful it is, but it would be nice to FEEL pregnant, you know??

Second question: Are you wearing maternity clothes yet?

I am only 4 weeks 5 days. My normal pants are pretty darn tight. I wore maternity pants to Target to buy pants in one size larger than my normal size. So now I have 2 pairs of khakis that I will wear as long as I can before moving back to maternity pants. I'll also be wearing my work out pants/yoga pants/house pants whenever I know I won't be going out of the house. This bloat is killing me, ladies!

I am with you Kate nothing but heartburn here. Last week i was alittle sick feeling but it went away quickly my bb's are starting to hurt alittle more and the heartburn comes and goes but today its here full force. Besides that nothing. I actually wore my maternity pants yesterday cause i had nothing else that i felt comfortable in. Everything seemed tight on me and i just had to feel comfy.

With my first pregnancy, I was so sick from 6 weeks to 14 weeks that I actually lost about 14 pounds. Then when I gained, I only went about 30 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight. I think it's totally normal to lose a little weight at first, especially if you're sick.

Yes, Julia, I'm nervous about hiding it from people. I am not sick now, but I know if I get m/s, I will not be able to hide it from my other mom friends. I also will have a hard time hiding it from childless friends because our socialization centers around drinking and they will be suspicious when I don't even have one beer. Then again, I haven't seen any of them in several months, so maybe it won't be an issue.

I think the hardest part will be trying not to post anything telling on FB like "I've been sooo tired lately" or "sick of praying to the porcelain goddess." I guess I just have to complain here instead of FB ;)
