Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

We told IL's over the weekend, they were excited.
I told my dad over they phone, his exact words were "are you nuts?" but then he back tracked and said congratulations, wow, that's great, etc. It still hurt though.
I haven't told my mom. I'm not sure what kind of sarcastic mean thing she is going to say, but I don't really want to know.

I told lots of people I just met at story time, and one of my neighbors.

I'm getting nauseous, but no barfing, which would be fine with me. With ds I never threw up, with dd I threw up a few times. I did have all day nausea with both though, which wasn't all that fun either, but still better than throwing up. I am so tired, I can tell this one is sucking the life right out of me, but in a good way. Anytime I sit down to read to ds I start to fall asleep.

Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

Lame. That must suck. I've had the opposite problem... I've been harassed about having a baby since we got married (11 short months ago). To the point where it actually verged on cruel... like saying you don't know what love is until you have a child, etc.

Can they give him something for his stomach so he can take the pain meds? I'm like him, heavy meds make me super sick Poor guy.

Dh is going to stage an intervention if I don't get it together. Anyway, I hope your husband feels better soon and stops moaning!!!


And apo_katie... glad to hear your spotting stopped too!

And random thought... so far our group is half team green/ half finding out. That kind of surprises me... I thought team green was kinda unusual. And it is in real life... but apparently not here!
I wonder how many of us team greens will actually make it...

Glad to see so many Mamas with symptons As of now we have no newborn fluff... not that I haven't been looking but this will be our first time doing cloth on a newborn so we have nothing on hand from before. I'm doing ok so far today as long as I don't move too much and eat as soon as a feel nasuaes. The not moving thing is hard with 2 kids under 2 in the house but I've stationed myself on the couch (a central location) and only move for diaper changes and getting food for them and myself. For the most part they are doing pretty good. Hoping we get good news from the appointment. A little worried but trying not to focus on it. Heyperemesis would suck but I'd be ok with it, I'd also be ok with a multiples pregnancy as I was secretly hoping for twins. Twins don't run in my family but they do run in my husbands family and he is the generation for it. I don't know how that works though. Well, back to the couch I go... don't want to push my luck.
((hugs)) I can totally relate to feeling that way. But I've heard that really bad morning sickness is a really good indication that the pregnancy is healthy.
I'm pretty sure your DH doesn't have anything to do with twins. Fraternal are the genetic kind and that depends on the woman hatching more than one egg. I could be wrong... but that's how I remember it.

Sigh. This is such BS. It seriously makes me mad that people think this way... and even more mad that they would say it out loud! So what, they don't love their SOs? Or do they just not love them until AFTER they have children with them? Grrr.

I should add that I am horribly hormonal today. I want to throw stuff at people.

I'll give you full permission to hunt these people down and throw things at them. I'll even give you names. One is in the US right now so it's perfect... I get my vengence (they made me cry) and you get to relieve your hormonal pregnancy anger

And in retrospect, I feel bad for them. Since apparently they didn't find out before they had children and that is actually probably the saddest thing imaginable. I couldn't imagine having a child with someone who I wasn't madly in love with but that's just me I guess.

Oh and my ob is on vacation so no appt for me this week. It's okay. I think a) that I'm fine and b) that if I'm wrong, there's not much they can doing at this point. So I'm taking it super easy right now and dh is really resistant to me doing anything. You should have seen his face when I told him I was spotting like the last pregnancy. He looked so heartbroken that I wanted to die on the spot. So yeah... I guess I'll be taking it easy until my ob gets back.

So we broke down and told my dad about expecting baby #4 (since he watches my kids the weekends I work) and I didn't get the reaction I expected. I spent the night crying myself to sleep. I'm not looking forward to telling anyone else so I think we'll just wait until they ask. I think dh and I figured our schedules out so no one has to watch them expect for every 3rd Saturday for like 6 hours or so. We plan to hire a babysitter so family can't say anything. So the quest starts for someone who is competent/capable to watch 4 kids ages 5 and under. Luckily we have almost a year to figure it out and try some out!
Ugh I am so sorry you dad wasn't more supportive and excited.

Yes! I have a friend who is due Sep 1st and just posted a pic to her FB of her cute little baby bump. Gah! She looks sooo stinking adorable!! I can't wait until that is us! Right now I just have an unattractive bloat going on. Lol!
IMO, we can start the fluffy chat at anytime. I bought two pairs of longies off spots last week

I think at this point it's not as accurate. In the beginning generally HCGs doubles really quickly, but as the numbers climb higher it slows and eventually declines a bit (at least I'm fairly certain) My tests have looked almost the exact same for days now. PLUS, the tests only have so much dye in them. ((hugs))

The more experience I have with FRERs the less I like them. I know everyone just LOVES them... but the pink handled Wondfos are so sooo much better it's not even funny!

((Hugs)) So sorry about your dad. We got similar reactions when we told family we were pregnant with my first angel baby. And I still get "the population" talk from my G-pa all the time. Sigh. I find it hilarious coming from a raging Republican who doesn't believe in eating organic and does only the very very bare minimum of recycling... Lol! OKay, I'm off on a tangent now...In the end when your baby is here things will be different. Sometimes parents worry for us- but who can help falling in love with a squishy newbie?

AFM, not much is going on. My boobs hurt like hell, which is a new symptom for me. Still dealing with that stupid yeast infection Though, it's barely noticeable at this point. Bloated, tired, and while I'm not nauseous at this point, my stomach is really sensitive to smells. I wish my MS would just kick in full effect so I could quit worrying about this bean.

Has anyone heard from apo_katie?? She was having some spotting too and I'm just hoping things are okay for her....
I am with you on the bloat yay for a new strong symptom!

Amber, sorry you're freaking out. I think you're OK. The color of the line depends on so many factors; dye, urine dilution. Can you go in for some bloodwork and see what your betas are doing before your ultrasound?

Corey - sorry you got such a lukewarm reaction. We told my MIL and mom and they were excited but I told one of my best friends last night and she didn't seem thrilled. She's got some personal things going on so I'm just blaming it on that. For now.

Sheena, sore boobs are no fun!! I don't have them at all this time. So weird. I keep pushing on 'em to see if there's anything and NOPE. I am just tired and queasy - that's all for now I guess!

Kim, I already bought some fluff to add to my stash. I can't bring myself to buy maternity clothes though which is weird. Normally I have a shopping problem...

I have an ultrasound on Wednesday. I am supposed to have another appointment with the doc I saw last week on Thursday but BIG SURPRISE I am canceling that one. She's wack.
Hoping your U/S goes well.

Awwe, I hope they can give your DH something that doesn't upset his stomach so much. You are a good wife for taking such good care of him and keeping amazing control of your hormones. I tend to catch myself after the fact.

Yay So glad to hear the spotting is gone and that your bfp was so strong!

I have always found out gender so this is my first time being on team green. This is my last baby (for sure) and i wanted to experience that surprise just once in my life so i am going to do my darndest to stay strong and not find out. I am however having the gender put in a sealed envelope and having the ob's office mail it to a friend. She wants to knit gender specific items and will ship them with the u/S pic of the baby bits after baby is born.

the love between a spouse and your child is different. They are both totally awesome. That's just mean for people to say things like that


AFM, I bought some tiny little side snap tee's today....just couldn't resist. I am bloated, crampy and utterly exhausted. Having Chipotle for dinner If AF doesn't show tomorrow I will finally be officially late

Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

Alice, again, you crack me up. I can just see you drooling as you make your mac and cheese. If I had your address, I'd flat rate you some mac! I just went gluten free a week before finding out I was preg. Guess what I want to eat? Yep, nothing nut carbs. UGH! I haven't failed yet, and plan not to since I'm doing gluten free to try to control my thyroid so that hopefully, this preg will last.

I got DH some new meds today...vicodin, which he has been fine with before. First dose on board and hoping this will be a turning point for him. Pain PLUS utterly sick is no good. Hard to watch him. I took my daughter to target to pick up the meds and get sprite for him and it was good to get out with my girlie and get away for just a min. I'm in a much better mood now that we are back. I also got a preg test. I took it this afternoon...couldn't wait for the morning. Just HAD to see a nice DARK line. Wanna see?



YAY!
My DH said something to me when I showed him the test. I thought he said, "why do you keep testing? Its positive!" And I burst into tears! He didn't say that by the way. I heard him wrong. Anyways, just goes to show how hormonal I am....and scared to death. I thought it was just in my head and I was controling it well (other than being quiet and distant), but I was pretty surprised by the sudden burst of tears. Its gonna be a long few weeks.

Alice, home made Mac and cheese is the best! I have a really good recipe that is actually semi-healthy. I'll PM you later if you want.
The thought of it makes stomach turn. I wish I was craving something, instead NOTHING sounds good. I'm not sick, per se, but anything that smells makes my stomach turn

Jenny, that is a beautiful beautiful test!!!
Glad your DH is feeling better and you got some time with your girl.
