Due anytime Summer 2012

Hi ladies.  I know it's kind of early for me, being only 7wks 5days along, to start this, but I wanted to start sharing this journey with others due around the same time as me.

I know many of us (me included) are afraid to put ourselves out there this early, afraid that something might go wrong, but I have known so many of you for you long, that I just couldn't wait any longer to start sharing experiences with you.  I have never been this far along in a pregnancy, and am so sure I am going to have tons of questions.

I am expecting twins, and am still in shock! :)  We have a due date of Aug 9th, but It will probably be more like July 26th, due to it being twins
I feel pretty good most of the time,  but if I don't eat every 2-3 hrs, the babies let me know it!

Just wondering how everyone else is feeling, and wondering if anyone else has questions we can help each other with....

Hugs!!!

That is AWESOME that you got pregnant with twins! Congratulations! I'm due June 7, but will probably be induced a few days before then, since I'm on blood thinning medication. At least that's what they did last time when I had my daughter. This time's it's a boy! Found out early at my 15 week appointment. I'll be 18 weeks tomorrow. :-)

Thanks for replying :)

Omg!  I cannot believe you are 18 weeks already!  That is awesome :).   What kind of blood thinner are you on??  I take a baby aspirin.  

Awww, a boy :). Do you have a name yet?  I am sure hubby and I will have long discussions over that!! Ha!  


I sure hope others join in :).

I guess I'll jump in here too, the more the merrier! RE said EDD was 8/4, OB at last U/S said 7/29. I have another appointment & U/S scheduled for 1/10 so I'll update if anything changes!

Great or see you join!!!!  How exciting!! The 10th is right around the corner!  Gotta love the u/s's.  We don't have one until the 16th. Systems like a lifetime away!!

Girls, it is so nice to have others to share this experience with!  

How are you ladies feeling?  I feel good all day, then start feeling really crappy around 5pm.  Boy, it can take a girl down!!  But, it lets me know my babies are there! :).
1203557 tn?1345853860
Doing well, had some more spotting, nurse said it was ok...Never had this when I was pregnant with my girls (20 & 14), think it's probably the meds... At least I'll be done with those on the 19th! Running out of usable belly space for the estrogen stickies.

Oh yes, I have been dealing with the spotting since dec 18th...off and on.  My nurse said they believe it is from the progesterone meds we are on.  I am down to every other day on the shots, and it has lessened.  Hopefully it will stop soon.  
Are your daughters excited about the pregnancy?  I sure hope so :).

I got my BFP on boxing day, so I'm 5 weeks 3 days along. So yes still very early, and every bit afraid as you are. We're not sharing our pregnancy news with anyone until we're out of the "danger zone" (first trimester). I haven't even told my mom yet!

I go to the doctor next week for the blood work (beta), and hopefully I might be able to get an ultrasound done at the same time.

Symptoms are showing up early with this pregnancy. I'm already looking pregnant from the bloating. And nausea is hitting me early too. We had a son 6 years ago. So this time around we're hoping it's a girl.

It may be crazy, but we've already picked out a girl's name. Haven't come up with a boy's name yet. If this is a girl, her name will be Addison Natasha

Welcome!

Glad to see your having symptoms already! : ) That just means baby is growing! :)  I hope they do an u/s for you w/ your bloodwork.  That would be re assuring.  

I love the name Addison!  Love it!!!  We may be using it too :)  of course, it will take a lot of discussions :)  For a boy name, I like Grant and Greyson, but, again, I'm sure there will be discussions : )

We haven't told our parents either.  I hope to soon, but as of now, only a few people know.

Let us know how our appt goes!!!!

Hey, Ladies!
I decided to join you (mhv- thanks for invitation:-))). According to the latest u/s I am 7w 1 d today. I had 2 miscarriages before and try to believe that this is IT!!! I am pregnant with 1 adopted embryo and already love her/him:-)))
My next u/s is on 1/10 (Tuesday) and I really hope and pray that my baby's heart will be strong and healthy.
So far, so good; not too many pregnancy symptoms- just tired, a little nauseous and bloated. God is good:-)))

Juana~Yay!  Welcome, my friend :). I am so glad to be getting some ladies to lean on during this process :).  We have all worked sooo had to get here.  I hope our group continues to grow, and that we can share our questions, fears, and joys :).  

Heather~ ok, fill us in on what we have to look forward to in the coming weeks :)

Stargazy~ how is the spotting?  I hope it has stopped.  Mine is still present every now and again.....maddening!!!

Shannon79~ hope the pregnancy symptoms are treating you well
As for me, I am starting to get hungry. :). Finally!  Finding something that sounds good to eat is getting just a tad better :)

1203557 tn?1345853860
Still spotting on and off...last on Friday. Someone mentioned that DHA may have something to do with it... Will stop taking that for now and see if that makes a difference.

Thank you for making this group for all of us.  We have been thru the HARD process of getting pregnant together so we deserve to have this group so we can talk, ask and enjoy this so wanted pregnancy

As for me I am 10w3d and my due date is aug 3rd but do to my incometent cervix I might go a little earlier then that, hopefully the cerclage will work for me.

I am not having many symptoms.  It scares me sometimes.  When I was about 6, 7 weeks I had more but not now.  A little tired and my boobs hurt in the morning when I get up from bed a lot, then during the day they get better

I have an u/s tomorrow 1/9 at 1pm with my high risk ob and then my first visit with him is on Thursday.  Im excited to hear when wil my cerclage b put in.

Im super excited to be able to share this experience with youl.  Im praying for us all to have healthy and happy 9 months and baby.

Believe and you WILL be blessed!!!

thought I'd chime in although as with some of you .. I'm still very aware that it is so early for me!  

I am 7 weeks 2 days today and saw a beautiful hb with perfect growth 3 days ago .. we have had 3 pregnancies with subsequent miscarriages so it was good to get to this point .. lost our first bub at nearly 12 weeks after seeing the hb 3 separate times so trying not to get too excited.

I have been feeling sick on and off since I hit 6 weeks and finding that quite hard but it is a reminder that bub is still there so not really complaining!  bbs are not that sore .. they were more sore early on in this pregnancy .. but the tenderness comes and goes now.  Very tired .. having to nap in the middle of the day. oh and I'm due August 25

Hey:-))) I feel very happy but nervous at times, too... My history of miscarriages doesn't help + I recently watched 2 girls loosing their babies after seeing their heartbeats. I am trying to take it minute by minute, day by day - still holding my breath a little and I believe it will stay this way til the end of first trimester.

sisi2399:
I am 7w2d and also worry from time to time because my symptoms come and go....recently they mostly go away. On the other hand I am grateful to God that he's not making my life miserable;-) I am excited for you and send lots of positive vibes:-)

tones99:
We have same worries, doubts and fears and the same EDD!!!
It is still early and we are not in control, but let's face it: seeing the heartbeat really lowers risk of miscarriage - let's repeat it as our mantra:-)
When is your next u/s? I am praying for you!!!
1580318 tn?1550254481
Are you ladies predicting when we're having our babies? I wouldn't predict mine early. When I was pregnant with my son, he was 9 days late.

Pregnancy symptoms are doing okay. Get really nauseous in the morning. Eases off some during the day. No vomiting though which is a good thing. I hate vomiting. BB's are still tender, and getting the nipple tenderness now. Can't even brush a towel against them after getting out of the shower, or they hurt.

My appointment is in 2 days!
1580318 tn?1550254481
And I've always loved the name Addison too!

DF has his heart set on the name Natasha, so I compromised with him, and we'll use it as the middle name. And the more I hear it, the more I like it

Shannon79:

It's so re-assuring to have pregnancy symptoms, even if they are pain in the butt sometimes;-) I don't have too many symptoms lately, except extreme sleepiness/tiredness, bloating and mild boobs soreness.
Hang in there!!!:-)

mhv:

I woke up at 8 today, drank tea with lemon and hot chocolate and went back to sleep. I woke up again at 11:45...!
I don't know if I should be worried, but my nausea is almost non-existing these day. My appetite increased, though and I mostly crave spicy and sour food. We will see tomorrow how my baby is doing:-)

Have a wonderful week, everybody and enjoy every minute of your pregnancies:-)
1340863 tn?1366641084
