LOL @ the black yoga pants for work clothes! I have 2 pairs of maternity jeans and cant afford more. I asked my grandma to get me 2 more pairs for Christmas. So she ordered them when motherhood online was having buy one get one half off of maternity pants last week. The flu is def. going around! I cant imagine! Hope its gone for good from your house! Izzies school has a chicken pox outbreak. I hope she doesnt get it. So we have settled on def. NOT taking our vacation. We are trying harder to budget. And we are just going to do fun stuff as a family here. We may just do our trip in Feb for our birthdays. Hows everyone else doing!?! Are we having anyone else have gender scans coming up? the May due dates should be having scans anytime now?

Hi Ladies!  I sort of fell off the boards, they were just driving me so crazy, I couldn't stand it.  I still can't :(  But I wanted to stop by and say hi!  The WTTG FB group is nice, but it really isn't the same as the boards - at least not the way they used to be.  I really miss it and all the women here, we had a good thing going.  Such a shame they decided to make such drastic changes just one too many times - they finally drove just too many away :(

ANYWAY, sorry to be a debbie downer there!! Everything is going great with the pregnancy so far, and I couldn't be more grateful.  Our first & second trimester screening results came back looking great, so that was reassuring. We have our anatomy scan two weeks from today; we are so excited!  I'll be sure to pop back in and update you all after the u/s. 

In non-baby-related news, I took a PT job as an instructor at the University where I went to grad school (and just left the PhD program last summer).  For now I've only signed on for the Spring '13 semester; we'll see how that goes and then talk about possibly continuing after baby.  It's just an adjunct position, so there's no contract or benefits, but also no advising responsibilities, so that's nice! :)

So glad to pop back in and see everyone's updates - I am going to try to overcome my annoyance with the boards and come back more often!!

Ella - Congrats on the PT job! And I cannot wait to hear what you're having! 

Suzie & Mandy - I have tried a few times now to update your ticker but iV is giving me problems with updating the front page so I will try again. Thanks for your patience!

Suzie - I have absolutely no inklings either way with this baby. We are officially "out" with the news! Went FB official about a week ago and I told my coworkers right before we left for break. I'm planning to tell my students after we come back from break but have no idea how or what to say. I just feel weird about it and since I teach K-8, I'll have to tell each age range differently, you know? Or I might not tell the youngest ones and just see if they notice. :-P

Mandy - Congrats on the BOY!!

Erin - Where's that belly pic? ;-)

Waving "HI" to everyone else!

AFM - I am so sorry to have been MIA lately. The 1T is kicking my butt in terms of nausea and exhaustion. And I've been having problems with my neck that are exascerbated by PC use so I've really been trying to limit my PC time at night. I'm on break for the next two weeks though so hopefully I will have more time to login during the day. I do still check from my phone frequently for updates.

I will be 12 weeks tomorrow and have my next appt on 12/31. I'll finally get to see my MW, last time I had to see the PA and I didn't agree with some of the things she said so I'm looking forward to seeing my MW finally. They wanted to do another U/S at my next visit for no particular reason and I have to call our ins. to see if they'll even cover it but I'm leaning towards just canceling it and waiting till the 20 week U/S.

I've been feeling pretty strongly about green teaming it this time but my DH still wants to find out. So I decided to give him a little incentive since he's started job hunting recently - find a job by the U/S and we can find out! LOL Hopefully it will light a fire under his butt. ;-)

Wishing everyone a blessed Christmas and New Years!

Hi ladies!  After roughly 10 positive pregnancy tests, I guess I belong here!  It's so good to be back.  I re-introduced myself a few months ago when we started thinking about TTC #2, but I'm Mary and I posted here a lot in 2009/2010 when I was TTC our son and pregnant with him.  I got my BFP after one month of TTC this time so I consider myself very lucky!  My EDD is 9/12/12.  That was not the case when we were trying for our son.  Here's my stats:

Name/SO Name:  Mary/Joe

How many weeks are you? not quite 4

Any exciting dates/appointments this month?  I'll call tomorrow to get the ball rolling with my OB on appointments.  I probably won't see her until late Jan./early Feb.

Do you feel like you will go early or late?  Who knows.

How are you feeling physically?  Okay for now.  I know MS will probably be here soon.  :(

How are you feeling emotionally?  All over the place.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month?  Tell a few folks our news, but otherwise nothing yet.

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue?  I'm thinking pink this time, but it's way too soon to tell.

Hi ladies! Mary - congrats and welcome! I remember you :) Christine - exciting about going public with your news! Telling students will be fun, I bet. So you don't want to find out but DH does? Remind me, I forget - did you find out when you were pg with Selin? AFM - well, we found out we are having a girl! We are so excited, and just so SO thankful that she is looking healthy and growing well. She weighs 11 ounces already and I can feel her moving and kicking all the time. I LOVE pregnancy :) So now the name search begins. DH and I tend to agree more readily on girl names than boy names, so hopefully it shouldn't be that hard...? :)

Mary - Congratulations and welcome back to the boards! So good to have you around again. Wishing you a H&H 9 months! I created a ticker for you. I assumed you're finding out the gender but if not, let me know and I'll change you to team green!

Ella - Congrats again on the girl! I know Eliza must be so excited and she's going to be an awesome big sister. I can't wait to hear the name you pick out! Yes, I would like to wait but my DH wants to find out. I'll post more about it in the Jan chat!

January thread has been setup ladies! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! :-D
