That's weird - I could have sworn I posted a message to this thread yesterday! Maybe I'm going nuts.
Anyway, thanks for starting it, Adrienne!
Not much going on with me, though I can definitely see/feel a difference in the size of my tummy. I'm totally getting into that stage where people will start to wonder if I'm getting fat or if I'm pregnant! LOL
DH is away (he left Friday for a week), so I'm in this big ol' house on my own. It hasn't been so bad, but it does seem empty without him around.
I'm looking forward to a massage tomorrow! I had to cancel the last one because I was feeling so ill, so it's been about 2 months since I had one last. I can certainly feel it. By the end of the day my shoulders and neck are SUPER tight. I've been stretching and putting heat on it, but even that doesn't help as much anymore.
Adrienne - oh too bad, you're EDD isn't on Eliza's bday anymore!! Of course I notice this - lol :)
I know you were planing to tell your families on mother's day, how did it go???
Well, we've been pretty quiet! I guess Adrienne will be moving on to the 2T thread, or has already!
I sent out an email announcement today to all our family and friends. I also posted a note on my blog about being PG. It's kind of scary getting the news out, because I worry that I'll jinx it or something! It's also nice in a way too though, because I can freely talk about it without having to remember who knows and who doesn't.
How is everyone else doing?
Wow I totally forgot that I could technically "graduate" to the second trimester thread, LOL!
I'll probably just stick around here until the end of the month, though, because I'm pretty attached to you ladies!
I can't believe how far along we all are suddenly!! I'm so happy!
Kim and Grace, how are you feeling?
Alyssa--About the sex, I totally hear you, I'm not in the mood at all! I posted on Jess' "In a Funk" thread about it . . . :-P But that is really exciting abotu "announcing it"! I feel like it's crazy that we're already at that point, it will be November before we know it!
You're so funny Adrienne!
I'm glad that you're out of the first trimester and can finally relax. I think I'm way too relaxed about this pregnancy, but it's hard to be worried about m/c when you're nauseous and crappy feeling all the time.
I have my first midwife appt. on Thursday, I'm really hoping they'll do an u/s so I can get a more firm dd In my mind I'm due Jan. 1st based on O, but according to LMP it's Dec. 27th so that's what everyone goes off of, I really don't want to end up getting induced at 41 weeks or something, and have that actually just be my proper due date.
I had my thyroid and my progesterone checked last week and both we're bad, so I'm trying to be better at taking my thyroid medicine and I got prometrium to take. My progesterone was borderline so they didn't give me the suppositories, which is good because I HATED the suppositories last time and I would hate to go through that again if it's not necessary.
Anyway, I've been feeling pretty bad. I haven't thrown up, but I find myself gagging and dry-heaving a lot, and pretty much all food sounds totally disgusting to me all the time, which is not so fun. I feel more stressed about getting enough food this time too because I have to feed myself and the baby and James. Luckily my milk supply still seems OK.
Anyway, there's my update... I think Kim is still at Disney. Hopefully she'll get back and update soon.
Grace--So good to hear from you! I think it's a good sign that you feel crappy, hehe--I think the main thing for you and James and the wee one at this point is making sure you are drinking plenty of water and taking your prenatal vitamins.
Hopefully everything ends up okay with your thyroid and prog levels--I can't believe you are 7 weeks already, Wow! I am still so excited that we're all pregnant together. Eeek. LOL!
I'm back from Disney, so I can pay attention to the boards now.
I'm feeling pretty good - so I guess that means it's a boy ;-)
