Christine - no worries!  Will do.  :)   Right now it looks like the cruiseline isn't offering an Istanbul tour and then the online Roll Call we're on has ppl doing private tours. So our plans there are up in the air!  I'm glad your nausea is getting better.  How did mat-clothes shopping go??

Mandy - thanks, I'm glad I'm not alone!  I was ADDICTED to Diet Coke for years - I had cut back to a can a day and now I honestly miss it!!  I told myself I wouldn't have it til 2T but I still have a sip of DH's once in a while.  Oh, but I'm still totally frigid - LMAO. Poor DH.  How did Izzie like the decorations??

Oh and Jules had Baby Girl Elizabeth / Lizzie on Nov 19th!  

AFM - I had a mini meltdown yesterday because of my weight gain. (I'm already pretty overweight and have lost 20 this year but had a LONG way to go.)  I know there's nothing I can do it about it now, but I can't believe I'm gaining so fast already.  I usually try to eat mostly gluten free but with the nausea I was devouring salty carbs - saltines, bagels, fries.  No more!!! I also need to get my butt in gear with the treadmill, but by the time I'm done work & chores I just have no energy left for it. I'm sure you all can empathize!  I just want to do half an hour a day but even that seems daunting.

Oops, forgot a few things from my last post...

Cassie June - Re: your weaning question - Seln actually weaned herself this summer so she ended up nursing for about 2-1/2 years. She dropped her morning session earlier this year and then was pretty much down to just bedtime and then started weaning from that. I was so worried I was going to have to wean her before I got PG and it was actually a lot easier on me emotionally for her to do it herself. You can nurse through pgcy, I know a few moms who have done so, but definitely do what works best for you and Ben! 

Alyssa - I'm so sorry for your SILs loss. :-*(

Mandy - Yay for the 3D U/S! And just in time for Christmas!

Re: gender preference - part of me wants another girl, mainly because I would love for Selin to have a sister and the practical side of me wants to reuse all of the clothes we already have. I know my DH wants a boy but would be happy with another girl as well. If this one is a girl then I think I have a good chance of getting DH to agree to a third. ;-)

Hope everyone is doing well. I unfortunately have been feeling crappy all weekend. Blech. I'm sure my DH is getting sick of me sitting around complaining about how awful I feel but by my calculation, I should be feeling better by New Years, if not sooner.

Alison- A cruise sounds amazing. :-) I get you on the guilty nervous feeling. I just finally started to let my guard down a little this past week. I have had some Diet Coke, and I ate salami (not sure if that counts as lunch meat- lol). And I am slowly giving into the idea of sex. Even though it still scares me... lo. Hopefully after my next appt when I am 14 weeks I will be feeling a lot less nervous. (Its just a week away.) Christine- Glad your bloating is supsiding. I hate the nausea but I also dont mind that it has gotten me out of a few things I really didnt want to do anyways lol! Hi to everyone else!! We have had a busy busy week. And today we are gonna set up the tree. We have a fake one and I cant wait to get it up! We normally have it up by now.

Cassie June - CONGRATS on the GIRL!! I can't believe how many girls we have coming up (6!!)

Alison - Ah, your cruise! I still have to ask my Turkish friends about places to see in Istanbul. Please remind me if I don't get back to you by then!

Waving *HI* to everyone else!!

On the topic of telling people, we still haven't told Selin yet but have told both of our immediate families and only a couple of close friends. I haven't told my dad yet because he lives out of the country and I figured I might as well wait until after our first appt. since it's easier to hide from people we don't see on a regular basis anyway. 

My bloating seems to have subsided a bit so I'm hoping it will make hiding it at work easier as I still have another  4 weeks until I was planning to share the news. Getting dressed in the morning is a huge hassle now as I have to try to find outfits that will conceal my bump. My SIL and I are going resale shopping tomorrow so hoping to pickup some new mat. clothes as I really don't have a whole lot from the first time around.

My nausea has been much better this week than last week and I think it's the whole eating something in bed and sitting up in bed as long as possible before getting up that really determines how nauseous I'm going to be. Although I was fine yesterday morning and then on our way to my parents for Thanksgiving I got nauseous and developed a slight headache. Thankfully that got me out of going to my ILs for tea in the evening. Pregnancy does have it's perks. ;-)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Cassie J - thanks! i thought i 'made it up' on my own but when i realized it's pretty common (as charis & karis in greek as well) then i was all over it. i adore the nn carey too.  i totally agree about cousin thing - it's not like the 2 will EVER be confused!!  and yeah, i guess because we've waited SO freaking long to announce, we're both antsy.  i've now told 3 friends IRL but not families - i know very well that if one of my sisters finds out, the entire family will.  and if my MIL knows, their entire TOWN will know within a week.  lol

Alyssa - wow, the DAY of the bfp!!  well you make a great point, of who i would want to know if i need them. hmmm...  anyway. i'm with you on the 7/8 bedtimes. couldn't imagine functioning with a toddler and working FT outside the house.

Cassie - so true!  i can't imagine not finding out, and having to buy gender-neutral everything in advance. i understand that "it's a ___" surprise is so special, but i would rather be prepared than surprised. 

Ruby - thank you! and welcome back yourself!  what are your MNs?  congrats on the halfway point!!!!!!!!!  :D   i love the music theme idea!  maybe adding/finding some charcoal gray would help?  so glad to hear you're feeling great though. :)

AFM - still no clue on what we're doing about the announcements.  we did decide though that we are definitely still going on our cruise in february!  so that's still exciting.  that would be the perfect time to announce 'publically' too - "oh, did we mention our trip is also a babymoon??" or something.  :P      still feeling the same, and still feeling super-cautious (okay, plain paranoid).  DH made something with canned tomato soup and i felt guilty for eating it!!!    grr.  i've also had random emotional cries. i almost immediately cramp afterwards and then i feel like i'm such a failure.

Wow this thread really exploded...I\m going by memory here so I'm sorry in advance if I forget you.

CassieJune, congrats on Team Pink!!  Glad to see you again

Alyssa and the other first Tri ladies...the MS/Nausea is the worst.  Also, I still dont really want to eat anything but candy, and other junk food...nothing else really tastes good. 

Sandy, enjoy your turkey day.

Alison, welcome and congrats again!  Love your name choices.  We have our middle names and those wont change but still havent really discussed a first name yet.

Sex disappointment...I think that was partly my motive for finding out this time as we did not find out with Maxim.  I was convinced alst time it was a girl so when he was born I was surprised but not disappointed.  I just loved him instantly and he is such a blessing, I cant imagine not having him,  DH's family has no girls on his mother's side so girls are like unicorns.  So this time, because I have always wanted a daughter so bad and know DH's family track record for more boys, I found out this time to prepare myself if I needed to get into a mental headspace about having another boy when I wanted a girl.  Thankfully, the universe is looking out for me and DH and we have our girl now so I didnt have to maybe go through it.

AFM, my PG is already more than halfway over and thats just crazy to me.  Trying to figure out how to decorate her room.  I'm doing a music theme but findng bedding in red black and white is challenging.  My MIL is going to buy her bedding so thats nice.  Other than that, not much to really report.  Feeling good, PG is good to me.  Found out at my ultrasound I DO have an anterior placenta so I dont feel her very much but last week I had a very random jab from her and then nothing, but this week I'm starting to feel her more which is fun and reassuring.  Busy at work and with Maxim and most days I'm just bushed.

I don't know if I posted this last time or not.. because right now I am really torn on the whole gender idea. Part of my really wants a baby girl. But part of me wants another boy as well. I though boy names for us are really going to be difficult as I have two I like, one of those I really like and Dh just isn't into it. Girl names I keep going back and forth as we have the middle name. I thought I was set on the first name but now I'm not so sure. I think it was Ashley that made the comment about if she had two boys she might be able to get a 3rd child... which is kinda of how I feel as well. But, I don't know. I keep calling "fireball" a he and DH keeps telling me its a she. 

I think it is hard because there are so many things you can plan out... even to an extent when you have children but the sex of the child only God has control over! And I'm sure for some of us planners and preppers that is hard. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I have felt pretty decent for most of the day.

Alison - the timing of the announcement is such a personal choice. I've been telling the news to a few select people, but not everyone. If things do go wrong, there are certain people I want for support, and so they know already. Otherwise I'm in no rush to tell anyone. We told our parents the day I got my BFP :)

Cassie - I've started taking Diclectin and it's helping a bit. It's not gone totally, but I kind of appreciate that :) It does make me SO tired though! Did that happen with you? Also, I can understand having gender disappointment either way. I also keep thinking about how fun it would be to have brothers - we don't have any 2-boy families in either of our families, so it would be very cool, but not very likely. It's hard not to picture your life one way or the other, I guess.

AFM - I'm going through the really hungry + feeling ill stage, which is always fun. I want to eat all the time, but I don't want to eat ever...LOL! I'm also getting so exhausted at night. By 7-8pm I'm seriously straining to keep awake.
