Name & DHs Name (ages too if you want): **Alyssa (30) and Kyle (28)

Location (be as specific as you want): **Southwestern Ontario

How long did you TTC for? **3 cycles

How far along in your pregnancy are you? **6 weeks and 4 days

Have you had any symptoms? Which ones? **Initially I had slight cramping (not AF like, but kind of like gas), and morning sickness. I think my breasts are starting to get larger, because they hurt a bit when I am up and about for a while.

If you've had morning sickness, how have you dealt with it? **I got a prescription for Diclectin, and it's WONDERFUL! I feel pretty good most of the time now, but do still get queasy from time to time.

Have you thought about baby names yet? What are they (if you want to share of course!)? **We have! Boy will be Carter Michael; girl will be Violet Marie.

What are your plans for Christmas? **Going to the ILs from Dec. 24-28th, then to my parents from 28th-1st. Should be fun, but exhausting!

AFM - I posted this in the general chat too, but we found out last night that SIL is also PG!!! This was her second time trying IVF, so we are so happy that it worked, because this was their last chance to have a biological child! She sounds ecstatic, and she was happy to hear that I'm PG too.

I think her due date is about 2 weeks after mine, so it'll be fun going through everything together :)

Name & DHs Name (ages too if you want): Jennifer (35) and Geoff (30)

Location (be as specific as you want): Southern California

How long did you TTC for? 12 months

How far along in your pregnancy are you? 11 weeks

Have you had any symptoms? Which ones? Queasy all day long, really tired by 8pm and some constipation. I am starting to pee more now so I know the bathroom very well!

If you've had morning sickness, how have you dealt with it? I eat more smaller meals throughout the day and always have my salted pretzels close at hand. I found I like smoothies and milk always coats my stomach.

Have you thought about baby names yet? What are they (if you want to share of course!)? Kathleen Louise for a girl and Henry Bruce for a boy.

What are your plans for Christmas? We plan to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas morning with my parents and Christmas dinner with Geoff's parents.

I also got to see our baby again at 11 weeks. It has a strong heartbeat at 146 which is normal for 11 weeks and it should stay around that range the rest of the pregnancy. The u/s tech said anything from 120-160 is normal for pregnancy. It was kicking it's arms and legs everywhere so our pictures are a bit blurry but I am just so happy it is so active and moving all around. We have a very active little baby that I think will be providing lots more kicks as it grows. We have the NT Scan next Wednesday which will give us a more detailed look and my insurance covers the tests so that was a relief. I am so glad to see more girls joining this thread I love it!! Hope everyone is having a great week!! Hugs to everyone!!

Guess I am here now!
Name & DHs Name (ages too if you want): Jessica (30 - on Dec 27th) & Mike (29)

Location (be as specific as you want): Twin Cities, MN

How long did you TTC for? 2 cycles

How far along in your pregnancy are you? just found out today, so I think it's about 3 weeks or so.

Have you had any symptoms? Which ones? I started feeling sick yesterday, but other than that nothing.

If you've had morning sickness, how have you dealt with it?

Have you thought about baby names yet? What are they (if you want to share of course!)? DH and I haven't talked about it, but awhile ago we were throwing around Elling James for a boy or Rudy James and Raina Marie or Ava Marie for a girl.

What are your plans for Christmas? we have three christmas' to go to, and my birthday, December is my favorite time of year! I LOVE IT! so it seems only fitting that I found out I am pregnant in December. DH and I have to talk about it, but I am thinking of telling our families at Christmas!
