EDD: April 10
2nd trimester begins: October 4 - can't wait!!
Next appt: October 3 for a regular checkup & then the NT scan
Do you want to know the gender?: Yes! I am totally going to ask if they can see at the NT scan, though obviously I don't expect anything!
Started working on names?: Sort of. We have girl names narrowed down, but we aren't seriously discussing names until we know what we're having.
Have you spilled the beans yet?: To a select group who have known since I got the BFP! Other people are starting to notice though, I think.
Best part of pregnancy so far?: I don't know. Honestly, I guess just ... being pregnant? This is my third pregnancy and not only am I dealing with first trimester symptoms, but I'm incredibly anxious about everything too. So I can't say it's totally awesome yet, apart from just being pregnant.
Worst part so far?: See above! Plus the all-day upset stomach. Sigh.
Most looking forward to: Feeling the baby move and getting a real baby bump!

EDD: April 1, 2012 (ha April Fool's Day)
2nd trimester begins:SUNDAY! So excited! So Sept 25th (I think that's Sunday)
Next appt:Oct 11th at 8:40...just a regular check up, but then I get to schedule my big u/s appt!!!
Do you want to know the gender?: YES!
Started working on names yet?: We have the boys name picked out and I have no clue about a girls
Have you spilled the beans yet?: I was going to tell family 2 1/2 weeks ago at a big family reunion, but since I began having bad cramps over that weekend (I was actually crying because they hurt so bad), I backed out in fear of losing the baby (it was actually dehydration we think). I'm horrible...so no I haven't. My parents are going to Italy at the end of the week and I want to wait until I'm in my 2nd trimester, so I will tell them when they come back, then I'm going to announce it on Halloween on FB with my costume! Although a few friends around here know because their husbands are friends with mine and he had to tell his higher ups after it was confirmed. Shew that's a lot.
Best part of pregnancy so far?: Ha I'm pretty miserable. My boobs are killing me, I can hardly sleep now (can't get comfy!) so I'm always tired, I'm very fatigued (I hardly got up the stairs last night ha ha) and I'm nauseous. Gah.
Worst part so far?: Ha ha, see above.
Most looking forward to?: When I don't feel blah all the time (soon hopefully) and finding out the sex of the baby and getting to feel my LO move.

Have you spilled the beans yet?: Yep, with my boys I was SO sick by 6 weeks everyone would have known anyway and with this one we thought it would be the same way, so we went ahead and spilled the beans. Guess what??? So far, I have been pretty much OK. :rolleyes: Figures!

EDD:4/16/12
2nd trimester begins: I had to look up when that is. I always thought it was 12 weeks, but according to thebump.com, 14 weeks is the start of the 2nd tri. Whatever. Going by that, it'll be 10/17.
Next appt: 1 week from today
Do you want to know the gender?:Definitely!
Started working on names?:Nah. Some names have popped in my mind, but we haven't had any real discussions about anything. I doubt we'll start thinking seriously about it til we know the gender.
Have you spilled the beans yet?:Yep. Many of our friends and family know. I look very obviously pregnant, so there's really no hiding it to anyone who sees me. We'll probably go Facebook official with the news after my appt next week.
Best part of pregnancy so far?:The bump! It's fun to look pregnant and get comments from friends. Smile
Worst part so far?: Well my nausea seems to be calming down a bit (thank GOD) but I'm still tired and just don't feel great. The main annoying thing at this point is that I've been sleeping terribly. Very frustrated with that!

Most looking forward to?:Short term? Finding out the gender!
