1. I found out on the day I was supposed to get AF.
2. He was there when the test was +, and I told my mom to sit down about 2 days after (this wasn't a good time for me)
3. I started to "feel" pg on the first day of week 12 when I began throwing up, but got EXCITED when I saw and heard his heartbeat.
4. The most amazing/wonderful/joyful part is feeling him move, buying baby clothes, planning our future.
5. The worst part was throwing up for 28 weeks straight--up until delivery, followed by gallstones, bronchitis, and hospitalization for the gallstones. Constipation is pretty bad, too.
6. I had one really weird craving every night for about 4 months. I ate a jar of the greek pepperonchinis (like banana peppers, but hot) and about a quart or more of milk. It was rough on my mom when we were out!
7. Gender.... I was told by 2 different doctors at 5 and 7 months that I was having a girl. I had a baby shower for 85 people and everything was pink. Blankets were pink, everything was washed, and tags thrown away. It was a bit of a shock to the system when the doc said "ITS A BOY!!!!"
8. Other information....I had an extremely hard pg and birth, but I wouldn't trade my son for an easier time of it. He was completely worth everything that I went through for all those months. Personally for me, I DO remember all the pain of birth, but some don't. Some women really have a great time being pregnant and giving birth is a breeze. My friend is happiest when pg, and I envy her a little for that
I truly hope for you that you are that way. It really is miraculous that we can carry such wonderful little people inside of us.
Good luck to you!
