Hello! Expecting #1!
Tue, 01-29-2013 - 12:19pm

Hello ladies! I'm currently expecting baby #1!  We are very excited to welcome our first baby.  We've been TTC for a little over a year and it was getting a little disheartening.  This is the first grandbaby on both sides of the baby so we'll have a spoiled little one I think!  Looking forward to getting to know all during this amazing journey!

Congratulations on expecting your first! This is such an exciting time for you and your family, especially after the time it took to concieve the LO. How are you feeling?

I just had my first baby on December 30 and while we got pregnant after one attempt each time, we had two miscarriages before this pregnancy. Our son is the first grandbaby on DH side, but he's an only child so our kids will be the only grandkids anyway. On my dad's side he's the 8th grandkid and on my mom's side the 2nd. All the other grandkids on my side are 3-5 years old, except my SIL, who had a baby on November 1, but my son is still the "baby."

Pregnancy seems to take forever, especially the last month when you're so over being pregnant, but enjoy every minute of it from the first time you hear the heartbeat, see the baby, find out the gender, feel the baby move, etc because you will really miss it. During labor and the first couple of days after delivery, I kept saying I would never do it again, but now I can't wait (but still 2-3 years from now)!

Congrats on expecting your first and welcome to the group!  How far along are you right now?  I'm 37 weeks right now and pretty much feeling ready for this baby to come! Our baby is the first grandchild on both sides as well. We've got a lot of excitement going on right now with the baby coming so soon!  My dad and my mother in law are the two who are really going to spoil this child.  They've already bought way too much and are just getting started! 

Welcome again to the group and we look forard to getting to know you better!

Congratulations on conceiving! You're beaming every day, I'm sure. I too am in my first trimester, a little frightened and excited at the same time. In addition these wonderful boards, my friends and family, I decided I needed some consistent advice, and signed up for some daily pregnancy tips to get on my phone: http://bit.ly/VSHOtg Please be sure to keep us updated on your journey! Hope this helps!
