I just got an email saying that my DH's ship has arrived and he will be home tonight!! I am so excited! I have missed him very much and cant wait to tell him the news.. Geez, it will be so nice to finally be able to share my secret with everyone. I feel like a little kid at Christmas..
Hi everyone! I hope I am not the only one full of fears right now. Every little pain I worry about and I think it is mostly just gas at this point! My tummy sure is bloated! So happy your DH is coming home and you can tell him the wonderful news! This is going to be such a wonderful journey and I am glad I have others to share it with <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
My first appt. is on Feb. 25th, but its just to talk with one of the nurses. But on my second appt. I will get my first ultrasound! That appointment is on March 18th and I'll be almost 12 weeks. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
My EDD is Oct 1. I have already had 2 ultrasounds, but that is because I am "full of scar tissue". I was not supposed to be able to get pregnant, and we were all booked in for Invitro next month! We were not trying, since we knew it was impossible, but 2 months after we went off birth control we got pregnant! So, due to the scar tissue, they had to verify the "baby" was not caught in my tube (ectopic), and it is in my uterus! We are so excited. Anyhow, I am going the 13th of Feb, and that will be my 7 1/2 week mark. They feel they should be able to hear a heartbeat at that point. I need another, just to ensure it is in my uterus, even though they are 99% sure. You always develop a cyst on one ovary (or almost always) when you are pregnant, which sends progesterone to the uterus to nourish the baby. Since I have that, they cannot rule out ectopic since that could be the baby. They have to wait until the black spot in my uterus is for sure a baby. Whew! This is so exciting being able to talk to other October girls. How did your DH react when he heard the news??? That is so exciting. You kinda feel like you are 5 yrs old again, don't you?
My DH was so happy when he found out we were pregnant. We have been TTC since September, so each month he felt the disappointment and heartache right along with me when old AF showed up. I made him look at the test results before me, and he was just beside himself!
I had intended on breaking the news to him by giving him a book titled "Congratulations! Your going to be a daddy!"...but at the last minute I changed my mind and wanted him to read my test results. I wanted him to be the first one to know so that he would feel importatnt! Our hubby's tend to be overlooked through our pregnancies (we get all the attention), so I thought it would make him feel good to be such a part of this from the beginning! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
EDD 10/3/03<p>[This message has been edited by HEAVEN-SENT (edited 02-07-2003).]
Hi everyone. How are you feeling today? I felt nauseous on my commute to work this morning. I don't know what I'll do if this leads to serious M/S. I'll be puking all over the train every day. LOL Anyone else having any problems with their appetite and sickness?
I've also noticed that my sense of smell is much more accute. I've never noticed how polluted NYC is until recently. All I smell when I walk outside is terrible exhaust and cigarette smoke (there are way too many smokers in this city). Makes me want to leave.
Hi! I just called my OBGYN's office and my first appointment is March 10th. I will get to hear my baby's heartbeat. I can't wait! This morning I am feeling quite tired. My right (yes, only one...go figure!) breast is killing me, but other than that I feel great!
I don't belong here, but...I just want to say "Happy Pregnancy" to all of you and may you feel good and have beautiful healthy babies! I wish I was here with you...but still ttc. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/heart.gif">
Hi automnleaves! I just wanted to tell you not to get discouraged. TTC is so hard emotionally. Keeps your hopes up and you will see, soon you will get your BFP! I hope that your turn will come very soon.
I am sending you a big hug and some BFP vibes!
Thank you for your message by the way, it was very sweet of you.
I may be jumping the gun here a bit, but I was looking at maternity clothes in the Sears Catologue in my office at lunch. Holy cow, are they expensive. Luckily there are a couple of second hand baby & maternity clothes places around here. I shall be frequenting them. I am due Oct 1, so I am thinking I will need them mostly in summer, and I should be able to make it with few pieces - or my baggy stuff through the early spring when it is cooler. I also have a couple of friends who can lend me things.
Sweet: where are you from? I noticed you are Canadian. I am in Ottawa. Where are you?
I am glad to hear everyone is doing well. This is such an exciting (nerve racking) journey. I am glad we all get to share it together. I cannot wait until the so called "golden" trimester when the sore boobs, MS and exhaustion go away. Only 2 months to go...
Hello to you canadians, I am fom Calgary.,
Best wishes, Bon
