Melissa here checking in. 1st, for those who missed yesterday, I got my raise! YEAH! It's only 5%, but definately better than nothing. I think Monday or so I'll tell them I am pg.

Ok, tonight DH and I have a dinner with the Marine Corp. League. It should be fun. We've been to others like it. It's a nice evening out.

Tomorrow I only work 1/2 day, and won't be around much then till Monday. However, keep me in your thoughts for sure because I have my first apt. tomorrow. We should get to hear the heart. I'm so excited.

I've been getting a lot of headaches lately. Not sure what that's all about. Sometimes one dose of Tylenol works, other times I need more. If anyone has any thoughts on what could be causing this I'd appreciate it.

So, that's me for now. I'm back to not taking my pre-nates. They made me nausious yesterday morning, and I took them the night before. Maybe I'll go back to the brand I had pre-m/s. Those are broken down into two pills (AM pill and PM pill). Maybe they'll be nicer to my stomach.

Well, have a great day ladies.

Hi all, Paula here, I went to see my doctor yesterday,

My baby is due around Nov 10th.

I am tired, have nausea, and have terrible pains in my back

and stomach. My doc said that it was perfectly normal as my body

was probably expecting AF, but should it get worse to go right back to see him.

Also I was worried because I am coming over to America in

May, and it's a 10hr flight. But he told me that I should be o.k

and to see my midwife before we fly out.

Paula.

P.s I dont care to much for this new board either.

Hey Melissa,

Glad you are doing good! I can't wait to hear how your appt. goes! I hope everything is Great! Have fun at the Marine Corps. dinner! Take care! BTW: I don't know what to say about the headaches but I have seen on a couple of websites that they are a PG symptom so that makes sense since you are indeed PG!

Andrea, here, 4w1d LMP, stressing because a judge asked the lawyers to provide our available dates for trial right when I'm due and will be on maternity leave! Too early to tell anyone yet!

That is really stressful. I don't know what I'd do. I wish I had advice for you. But, this kind of thing does happen (people *do* go on maternity leave and have babies), so even if you go along with it and don't disclose your pregnancy now, they'll have to deal with it later without causing you grief. It doesn't seem like you should have to tell this early if you don't want to. I don't know much about the legal system, but I hope it works out ok.

I wanted to thank you for your messages yesterday about the nursing and ttc. I found your last message in our exchange this morning--don't know how I missed it earlier. I think I may be weaning today (should I say may have weaned!), and reading your message was helpful.

Thanks and good luck with the judge!

Good luck tomorrow, Melissa! I hope you are able to hear the HB! One of our friends bought a doppler when they were pregnant. They had promised to let us use it, but they had lent to another couple and just got it back. He's bringing it to us tonight, so I'm excited that I'll be able to hear that sweet sound whenever I want!

About the headaches....I'm getting them every day now. I can't tell if they are sinus or pregnancy related, but I really don't like taking medicine. Tylenol wasn't touching them, but I started cutting a Tavist Sinus in half and only taking half at a time. That really helps mine. It's acetamenaphine and diphenhydramine, which is a decongestant - it's one of the safe medicines according to my dr. Or you might try drinking a little caffeine, b/c that is said to help dialate the blood vessels in your head and relieve the pressure. (Always works for me). Good Luck!

Here we go again......Baby #3!!

I told the partner, he pledged to keep in confidential & said congrats and told me to take my leave out as available dates. So we'll see.

Good luck on the weaning front--hope it goes as smoothly for you as it did for me. Get ready to have a little food piggie on your hands, though! :) And good luck with the TTC!

Sounds like you handled that well. We wouldn't mind a little food piggie--at 2 years she's only 20.5 lbs, so she could stand to eat a lot more!

Take care,

They found a heartbeat!! The last u/s there was only an empty sac and it was measuring a wks small. Yesterday 8 wk 2 days you could see the h/b and he/she was measuring 8 wks!! The u/s tech (Chip is her name ~ I love her!) turned it on so I could 'hear' it too. I started to cry. She said that it was nice and strong - a good sign. Same with my nausea. It looks like it's a high implantation, which the dr. said is a good sign too!! Of corse there are no guarntees until I'm holding my little one that this will be a sucessful pregnancy, but so far so good! The u/s puts my edd 11/6, according to my lmp it's 11/4 but I told the dr. I O'ed cd17, which would put it at 11/7. So I said "Can I just say I'm due around the first week of Nov?" He said that's probably more accurate anyway.



Thanks for the happy thoughts and positive prayers! ~ Jacquie
