Turkey Babies Chat 4/13-4/15

Thought I would open up the new chat board hope it is okay mama's!!!

And also we do have a FB page for anyone who is new. Ask here and we will get you set up and going on the FB...

SO! New appointments coming up and most of us mama's are almost into our second trimester! Bumps are starting to develop and I believe most have been to their first appointments! WOOT!

Remember to take care of you!

Also we have a couple of mama's who lost their bean's last week and it has been a very sad time for them and us too! Keeping them in our thoughts and prayers

Re: Turkey Babies Chat 4/13-4/15

We had our first confirmation appt. about 2 weeks ago and our first official prenatal appt. is this Tuesday

That rude nausea is no longer subject to mornings, it has turned into all day nausea! The only upside is it means bean is nice and sticky. I have a nice baby bump going, my pants no longer button so today is the first day I am wearing maternity pants at work...so much more comfortable! We should start a thread for baby bump pics!

Congrats to everyone who finally hit the 2nd trimester, I personally cannot wait to get there myself!

Re: Turkey Babies Chat 4/13-4/15

I'm so envious of people who have already had their first appointment, even if it was just a confirmation! Our first appointment is still next week, and I'm going to be using MWs for the first time and I don't know if they'll have an u/s in the office or not. I was tempted to use my OB just for the first appt and get the u/s then switch I'll be 9 weeks tomorrow and both the MWs and my OB won't see you until after 8 weeks. It's been such a long wait because I found out so early about new bean (5 weeks). Last time I was 6 or 7 when we found out and only had to wait like 2 or 3 weeks for the first appt.

That must be SO hard! We got lucky because we had NO idea if I was 6 weeks or 10 weeks along so they did an US to confirm and I ended up being 6 weeks. It would drive me nuts waiting that long! If your midwife is like mine she has a doppler but not a US machine so she works with a local OB to do the US for her. Maybe call ahead and ask so you know if you will get one or not, I would be so so so disappointed if I went to my 1st appt. and didn't get a US.

Re: Turkey Babies Chat 4/13-4/15

bad nausea ALL DAY! i'm just trying to survive for the next 3 weeks, which seems like forever. i asked Dh to stay home from work today. yesterday was BAD i was sick and depressed all day. i know it's a good sign that i'm sick, i just can't handle it anymore. i feel like a weakling pregnant woman. the worst is when im so hungry but nothing sounds good to eat and makes me gag thinking of it. i would be happy not to eat until 12 weeks.

just make it through the next three weeks! crying it out seems to help.

Sorry mama, I hear that! I have had bad nausea for the last 2 weeks. Today was a semi-good day. The only thing that has worked is to eat every 2 hours or so and very bland food like a bagel. Ginger helps too. It just sucks

I'll be getting an u/s soon enough anyway because I have a "history of cysts". I had a ginormous one with DS that we found too late to do anything about until after the birth (I ended up losing the ovary because it got bigger instead of going away). When I took the birth center tour I asked what they would do for me and the nurse was like, "oh we'd just make sure that you got a 20-week u/s" (which was when we found the last cyst and that was TOO LATE). So I came home and told DH that even if insurance didn't cover them, I'd pay for extra u/s's myself so that we can find out early enough to have it taken care of. I'll be talking to the midwife doing my first appointment about it and if I don't get a satisfactory answer then I'll just go back to my OB because ultimately if it comes down to keeping my last ovary or giving birth in a birth center, I'm totally keeping the ovary

Glad to see everyone is doing well!

@twin : Your bump is just adorable! You are so lucky to be a mama of twins and be so slim! I think most of my bump is post first baby. I am on the other hand filling in the extra skin but that is about it.

ATM:
Feeling very tired again today... AND SUPER HUNGRY! What else is new right? my belly is getting tighter and tighter so I guess my uterus is starting to expand more and moving stuff around in there. I have days where I could eat a cow and wind up bird picking because I get full so fast... ahhh

How is everyone doing?
