Hey guys!!


My name is Jenny and I am 27 years old. My husband and I started trying to get pregnant in January and were blessed to already have a little bambino on the way!! According to the internet I should be due around October 7th but I will know more after my first doctors apt on Friday! My sister joined a board when she was pregnant and said it was wonderful to be able to talk with people who are going through the same things as you are!! I am super excited for the next 9 months:)

Hi Jenny, Congrats on your new baby. I'm pregnant as well. I have 2 months to go until my little bundle of joy arrives. So far I have been very thankful that I have not had any morning sickness or difficulties with my pregnancy. (Yey :) ) How about you?

Hey Yesi!


Congrats...I bet you are so ready!! Is it a boy or girl? So far I have felt fine...I have had a couple of headaches but other than that I have felt normal. I have been on the October expecting board and it seems like I am the only one who is not feeling many symptoms; I am glad but at the same time I wanna feel something just so I know the little tyke is in there, lol! Thats great you have had a good pregnancy...any suggestions? I go for my first apt Friday so I am super excited:)

Hi Jenny,
As far as being ready to have my baby, i'm totally not. I'm scared of the labor. I'm suppose to be taking two Childbirth Classes in this up coming months, so I'm getting ready for that. Its always good to know whats to come. :) As far as being ready with baby clothes, dipers and such, yes. I have bought so many cute baby outfits. I'm actually planning on going to the Ralph Lauren outlet where they have these super cute baby clothes. 3.

I'm having a little baby boy. It took me and my husband such a long time to agree on a name for him but we finally did agree on one name which is "ERIC". I bought a one of those books with a kabillion baby names and I would go over the names for days and days until we finally agreed on one.

Maybe its just me but this month I have noticed that I am more sensitive (emotional) when my husband talks to me. I cry easily now, when before it wasn't so easy for me to cry. :) He could be joking around with me and I will take things in a different way.
Have you experienced that tiny side effect yet?

Advice: Do keagles, they will help you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
What I did the first time I went to the doctor for my prenatal visit was that a week before my apt. I wrote down all my questions, and as soon as I got there I asked my doctor.
I also bought the book " What to expect while expecting" !! I REALLY RECOMMEND THAT BOOK...SOME GOOD INFO IN THERE.

Aww, I love the name Eric! Very cute! I cant only imagine the fun in buying all sorts of baby clothes and goodies...Im super excited about that! Hopefully the child birth classes will help ease your mind. I am very anxious about that part too but I have a while so Im just trying not to think about it! I read somewhere to do Kegal exercises...I will get on that! You know, I think there have been a couple of times Ive gotten overly sensitive with the hubs...He was teasing me saying "Bye Bye belly, byebye butt", I was laughing one min and the next I was mad...I warned him that joking was ok for now but when I do start to get bigger that the jokes would not be a good idea, lol! I am getting that book this weekend...Im so excited to start reading it...I think I have been on every pregnancy website available so far:)


You only have 10 weeks to go!!!!! YEA!!

Hi Jenny,
Thers also another book I would recommend, Its called "your pregnancy: week by week" and its by Glade B Curtis M.D. That book also has a whole lot of great info on pregnancy and some cool pictures.

So are you excited for Valentines Day? I'm really looking forward to it. I keep hinting to my hubby that I want us to go back to the beach where we had our first date, only after a romantic dinner lol. :)

Do you still work? I'm currently not working anymore. I had a very bad experience with my boss after I told him that I was pregnant.

Hi Jenny!


Congratulations! I just found out I'm pregnant too! I'm due sometime in the first week of October as well, but won't get to go to my first Dr. appt until feb. 23rd. I'm surprised that I haven't had any symptoms either- so you're not the only one. I've heard horror stories about morning sickness!!


Good luck at your first appointment!

Congrats!!! Im so happy to hear you feel good too...not that I want to feel bad but its reassuring to hear we are both in the same boat...for now at least, lol! It seems like a lot of people have to wait several weeks for their first apt...I think it would drive me nuts, although Im sure they can tell more about the baby at that point:)

I havent heard of that book, I will def. look into it! I am excited about Valentines Day... my husband and I along with several other couples rented a cabin this year so that should be fun. The beach sounds awesome, that would be a great date! You must live near the beach? Im from KY so I can only dream of the beach this time of year...we just had 6in. of snow...if only I could have been basking in the sun drinking a margarita, LOL!!
