Are you going to find out the sex, do you have an u/s date set: Nope! We're not even having a 20w u/s!

Where are you birthing? Home, hospital, birthing centre: Home!

Do you have symptoms still? (morning sickness, bloating, etc..) : Every now and then I get waves of nausea and I'm exhausted all. the. time.

Good thing to brag about: I got to hear the heartbeat thursday, and call me crazy but I've also felt some flutters. I'm still not 100% it was baby, but it sure felt like it! Just seems too soon so I'm nervous to say "I FELT MOVEMENT"

Bad thing to gripe about: I'm still super tired all the time Sad I hope the 2nd tri energy burst happens soon!

Anything else you want to add: I'm loving being pregnant. I love everything about it, I just wish I'd get a belly soon!!! I want people to look at me a KNOW, not look at me and wonder lol

Name/age: Christa, 32 but turning 33 a week from Tuesday (gah!)
DH(SO)/age: 39, 40 next month

Due date: Aug 20th ish (I can't ever remember the exact date he gave me)

Any other LOs: DD1 is 13, DS is 3 and a half, DD2 is 16 months

Are you going to find out the sex, do you have an u/s date set: No and no

Where are you birthing? Home, hospital, birthing centre: Not sure yet. My midwife had a baby a couple weeks ago so not sure if she will be doing any births. If she does, it'll be at home, if not it'll be in the hospital.

Do you have symptoms still? (morning sickness, bloating, etc..) : not really except a small bump and some tiredness.

Good thing to brag about: I've felt some fluttering lately. Yay!

Bad thing to gripe about: This point in pregnancy where I'm not big enough for maternity to fit right but I've gained enough for regular clothes to be too tight. I hate this part!

Anything else you want to add: I'm really really going to miss being pregnant and never getting to experience all this again. I'm also very nervous about getting a newborn. I don't do well without sleep and obviously there's not as much of that with a newborn, it was so hard on me with DD2 and since I'll be 2 years older this go round I can't imagine it'll be any easier this time.

What bout a belly pic: Not yet, I feel like I still just look fat.

Any other LOs: This LO is our first!

Are you going to find out the sex, do you have an u/s date set: Yes - no appointment booked.

Where are you birthing? Home, hospital, birthing centre: Hospital.

Do you have symptoms still? (morning sickness, bloating, etc..): The only symptom really obvious to me now is the heightened sense of smell leading to lots of gagging instances! I still haven't had a major burst of energy, yet; but, I'm definitely not as fatigued as I was in the beginning. I also still have really tender/heavy breasts that KILL if they aren't in a bra! The kicker is that they haven't grown at all! haha

Good thing to brag about: I'm just glad the nausea is completely gone!

Bad thing to gripe about: I can't think of anything...

Anything else you want to add: I see a lot of women mentioning that they've felt the baby move! I haven't, yet; but, I don't really know what I'm looking for since this is my first pregnancy! I hope it becomes obvious to me soon, though!

What bout a belly pic: I still just look like I have a muffin top! haha I'll post one when it actually looks like I have a baby belly!

Any other LOs: DS Kaden 3 years

Are you going to find out the sex, do you have an u/s date set: Yes! Tuesday, March 6...2 weeks to go!!!!

Where are you birthing? Home, hospital, birthing centre: Hospital

Do you have symptoms still? (morning sickness, bloating, etc..) : Mostly I'm great now. Occasionally something will upset my stomach, but they are few and far between now!

Good thing to brag about: Feeling a lot better. The second tri is really kicking in. I've noticed the last few days when I shower that I'm shedding a lot less now too.

Bad thing to gripe about: Lots of mucus still. Between the extra my doc says to expect, plus trying to battle regular winter congestion I get it's horrible.

Anything else you want to add: I expected this pregnancy to drag on but I feel like it's flying by. Hard to believe I'm just a few weeks shy of halfway through!! The other night laying on the couch I could feel little flutters finally! I thought I was nuts, but every night since then when I lay really still and relax on the couch I can feel it again.

What bout a belly pic: I'll get one posted in a few days when my camera quits acting up. Time for a new one!

Any other LOs:
Nope..just a pair of cats!

Are you going to find out the sex, do you have an u/s date set: We are going to find out. I had a gender scan set for March 26th, but since I switched from my OB to a midwife they have to set up their own. So now Im in limbo waiting for them to call me and set up my appointment. I want to know NOW!!!

Where are you birthing? Home, hospital, birthing centre
: Birth Center if all goes well!

Do you have symptoms still? (morning sickness, bloating, etc..) : Im doing pretty darn good right. Occassionally I get a small round of nausea and Im still feeling lots of stretching pain and absolutely have an itchy tummy from the growing. At night the baby must roll to the back and sleep on my sciatic nerve because it kills me! Thankfully a pillow between my legs seems to be helping with that.

Good thing to brag about: As of right now I have not gained a pound!! WOOHOO!!! Im being really good about what I eat and walking 4 times a week. Im 5lbs down from my start weight and because I was heavy to start with my midwife says I can stay where I am now I will be golden. So I am working hard to make that happen. She says my baby has everything it needs to carry to term just fine. I consider myself very lucky that I haven't had any increased appetite.

Bad thing to gripe about: Just the little pain here and there. Sometimes my uterus feels so heavy!!

Anything else you want to add:
Ive started feeling some movement! Flutters here and there and some definite poking from the inside! I think it will be a while before it is regular or before DH can feel it, but everytime it happens, I go all goofy with the smiles because I know what it is. I don't want to shout to everyone that Im feeling it until they are some definite hard kicks, but knowing your body, even the little ones are simply amazing!

What bout a belly pic: Will try to update with one tomorrow so check back if you want to see it!

Any other LOs: not so little any more... Sad Gabby and Isabella are 8, will be 9 in a month, and Deborah is 7.

Are you going to find out the sex, do you have an u/s date set: OMG, I am DYING to know! We will find out. Hopefully at a quick gender scan on 3/14, but if not, our big u/s is scheduled for 4/11.

Where are you birthing? Home, hospital, birthing centre: Hospital

Do you have symptoms still? (morning sickness, bloating, etc..) : I have no morning sickness anymore, but I definitely have to make sure to eat a good breakfast or I feel horrible. And my energy, while still not 100%, is mostly back. I still have days, though, when I am simply exhausted.

Good thing to brag about: I am finally back to sleeping through the night, and my sex-drive is back! YAY! LOL (Believe me, my DH is very happy!)

Bad thing to gripe about: I'm definitely feeling the stretching and pulling of my muscles in my abdomen, and I am so tired of only being able to eat a little at a time!

Anything else you want to add: I'm in that loverly in between stage between normal clothes and maternity clothes. I really can't wait to just jump into the maternity clothes all the time!

What bout a belly pic: When I finally stop looking fat, and start looking pregnant, I'd be happy to oblige. Wink

Any other LOs: Nope, this is our first one!

Are you going to find out the sex, do you have an u/s date set: We'll find out March 15th!

Where are you birthing? Home, hospital, birthing centre: Still deciding between home and hospital, leaning more towards home.

Are you going to find out the sex, do you have an u/s date set: Yes--not set yet but will probably be the first week of April.

Where are you birthing? Home, hospital, birthing centre: Hospital

Do you have symptoms still? The week before last I felt terrible--headaches, nausea + vomiting, exhausted--it was the worst I'd felt this whole pregnancy. Now all that seems to have vanished. I guess it was the first trimester's last hurrah!

Good thing to brag about: I've been easily picking up LO's HB on my Doppler and it gives me peace of mind.

Bad thing to gripe about: Hmmm...our sex life has been pretty nonexistant (poor DH).

Anything else you want to add: I am dying to find out the gender so I can plan, plan, plan (which is something I love to do!)
