Smile First timers?

Hi! I'm 8 weeks and this is my first pregnancy. I was wondering if there were other first timers out there, maybe even with August due dates? I am very excited and nervous and would love to compare symptoms and feelings. I feel very fortunate tohave gotten pregnant so fast... we just started trying the beginning of November. I hope everyone is doing well and really look forward to hearing from other new Mommies-to-be!!! Michelle

Re: First timers?

Hi I am a first timer. I am due June 8, 2006. I am 18 weeks and 2 days. It feels like yesterday though that I was 8 weeks. Very excited. I wasnt as lucky as you to get pregnant so easy.

Re: First timers?

Great to hear from you all! My due date is August 20... just a day after yours binker! I'm glad to hear everyone is doing good. Hope to hear more about your dr. appointments and anything else you care to share about your journeys to motherhood! I wish I could fast forward to the summer sooooooo excited! I haven't gone to my first appointment yet though..... Is it true you get TONS on blood work done in the beginning? I am like a 5 year old when I have to get blood drawn! It's so pathetic!!!!

Re: First timers?

This is my first time also. I am currently 26 weeks and I am due on April 9th with a baby girl, Alexa. I haven't experiened much pregnancy symptoms during this pregnancy. From week 6 to 8 I had some mild nausea and recently I have some rib pain but overall it isn't bad. The worst part of pregnancy for me was being too big for pre-pregnancy clothes and too small for the smallest maternity clothes. I wanted to look somewhat pregnancy and it seems to take a long time to get to the point where people can tell.

Re: First timers?

GSX,
I personally didn't have alot of blood drawn in the beginning, maybe twice. The first time they did take A LOT of blood out, but I was only stuck with the needle once and they kept switching out tubes. I go to a military hospital and I am not sure if there are any differences, but I also volunteer for all the tests to be on the safe side. I also don;t like my blood drawn and I usually get sweaty, lightheaded, but I let the tech know and they usually distract me by asking alot of questions and then it is done. No worries.

Re: First timers?

Congrats to you all, I too am a 1st time mommy due August 24th! So far I've just been nauseous...when I get too hungry...tired, my bb's are pretty tender and some of my pants are starting to get uncomfortable, probably b/c of the bloating.

Re: First timers?

I'm a 1st timer! I just found out 2 days ago that I'm pregnant. I have not been to the doctor yet, so don't have a due date, but I'm assuming late August to early September. This is completely unexpected and I'm very, very excited but nervous of course! I'm estimating that I'm about 5 - 6 weeks pregnant. My husband and I were not TTC and my cycles are so irregular. A gyno even told me I was not ovulating during my cycles, so I never expected to even be able to get pregnant. I am kind of in a daze!!

So far my symptoms have been nausea, dizziness, sore BBs, and cramps that felt just like menstrual cramps. This morning and last night I've felt a little bloated, too.

I'm hoping to get into the Dr early this week.

Re: First timers?

Hello....It is my first pregnancy also. I'm about 8 weeks. I just found out 4 days ago. We were trying to conceive for about a year. I wanted to get prego more then anything in this world, and now that I am, I've been scared and worried ever since. I wish I could feel the excitement all of you are feeling. Hopefully it will come later in my cycles...


I've been nausiated and very tired...sucks cause I will be a working mom and I'm not looking forward to juggling work and the baby.

Re: First timers?

here4support,

I have wanted to be a mom more than anything too but had believed it just wasn't going to happen for me because of my cycles (I would go months without a period, and when it finally came would only last a day or two). It was a devastating thought. My husband and I also TTC ~2 years ago for about a year and were unsuccessful. Even though this pregnancy was not planned, I also thought it was impossible and so I'm also scared and worried. Every cramp I get I run into the bathroom to make sure I'm not bleeding. I am very excited, but also very scared that it's too good to be true. So, you're not alone there!

Laura
