Re: Fabulous February Weekly Chat | 5/29 - 6/4

I'm tired too! Busy day today.. we had a bridal brunch this morning and then I went to an old friend's baby shower today. We haven't told everyone yet just immediate family and our closest of friends, so it was really hard to go to a shower today and talk "baby" for 3 hours and not say anything. So many times I almost said, "Yea, with this one...." , and I'd have to catch myself. Pretty sure it's bad etiquette to announce your pregnancy at someone else's shower hahahahaha! Oh and answer me this... why at only 4.5 weeks pregnant do I look like I did at 12 weeks last time? ahhhH!

You need to get some nonalcoholic beer and fake it

She's a little young for it right now, but we may save it for her 2nd birthday.
Aww that's sweet! We have the same doll ergo carrier too.

Wow those babies are close!

I've heard the more you have the earlier you show.


AFM-I'm leaving on Monday for Maryland. I'm so excited!!! My youngest DD 21 months is teething and oh my gosh I've never seen a baby in so much pain. She is barely eating a thing crying and whining all day and isn't sleeping so great at night either. I'm doing the motrin and tylenol and it doesn't even seem to help. I'm wondering if I hsould get her into be seen but I don't know if they can do anything for her.

I've heard that too, but this is only #2 for me. I guess I'm just shocked, but also very happy. I mean, who doesn't love a bump? I am so sorry that your DD is in so much pain. Poor baby! Hope she feels better soon!

Re: Fabulous February Weekly Chat | 5/29 - 6/4

Our local consignment store has a new items area and they sell the doll ergos there. I'm saving up my credit to "buy" Felicity one for her birthday in Sept. They only have the grey with white print one so I'm going to ask the owner if she is willing to request other prints so I can get Felicity a matching one to the one I have. I can't wait. She sees the posters advertising them every time we're in the store and she points it out every time! My other goal is to make her a baby waldorf doll to go in it. I have been wanting to make her one for a while, even have a book, and keep putting it off. Don't know why I'm nervous about it. ???

Thanks. I know its normal for SOME women to spot during pregnancy, but, for me, it has never been a good thing. With my first pregnancy I lost the baby within 24 hours of the first spot of pink. With my second (DS) I spotted at 13 weeks and discovered that I had a couple of small blood clots in the placenta and placenta previa and was on bed-rest for 6 weeks. With my last pregnancy I spotted at 8 weeks and everything seemed fine on u/s, but baby was dying. I spotted for about a week and baby died toward the end of it. Then I didn't bleed at all for 3 weeks and went to the doc for my regular 10-12 week ultrasound and baby was gone and had stopped developing just a few days after I was there. I carried until 15 weeks and started spotting again about 48 hours before I miscarried. So, bleeding during pregnancy totally freaks me out and even if everything is okay this time, its still going to freak me out every time I see it! What is comforting about it this time is that it is not associated with any pain (at least not any more pain than is normal in early pregnancy cramping) and that it is NOT getting darker at all. Even when it comes and goes, when it comes back it is the same as it was previously. So, as long as it stays like that, I will probably avoid going insane. Either way, I'll keep you gals posted. It just scares me because I spotted last time and baby died and I had no idea baby had died until I went in for my ultrasound so it just scares me that this little one has stopped developing and I don't know it yet. With the last one I even kept my pregnancy symptoms until around the day I miscarried (so 5 weeks after baby stopped growing). So, I just have to try to be relaxed and hope for the best (and try to talk Nurse Deutch into harassing a doc into seeing me sooner )

Can you train my kid to entertain himself while I rest on the couch? I only have one now, so I don't get a break. I'm looking forward to having two for the "go entertain each other for a bit" aspect----although, if this one is a boy I'm sure every stick of furniture in my house will be in tatters and there will be dirty socks covering every surface of my house...men just can't help it, I think

TRUE STORY!!!

Here's my early shots:

9 weeks with my son in 2008---



9 weeks with Caleb (the baby I lost in April 2011)---


Baby only developed to 10 weeks with my last pregnancy, so I don't figure I"ll get that much bigger this time around, but I start showing EARLY.

And people like to tell me its ALL bloat this early in the game...and I just laugh---once your body has done this it goes "INCOMING! Make room! She's got another giant baby on the way, MAKE ROOM DANGIT!"

So sweet! If I'm going to start showing like that at 9 weeks, I don't think I can keep it a secret until the second tri....which means we might have to announce it at DD's bday party the beginning of July !

Yeah, that's the other reason why I don't bother not telling, haha. I show early (my 9 week with my son is definitely a little "showing" compared to the pre-pregnancy. By 12 weeks there was no denying I was knocked up with him.

However, my son was almost 10lbs at birth and CONSTANTLY measured 2-3 weeks over via ultrasound, (even though I knew conception date and he was 4 days over, so his due date was probably pretty close to right!), so having a giant baby stretches you out more and makes you get bigger faster anyway, multiply that by 2 for future pregnancies and there ya go

Maybe you won't s how quite that fast
