Due date: August 21, but I have c-sections so a week before that give or take whenever they can do it.
How are you feeling lately? Well not as tired, but still sick to my stomach all the time.
Are you showing yet and/or wearing maternity clothes? Not showing yet but starting to feel the bump coming up when I lay down:)
What are you most excited about now or in the next few weeks? Nothing really... I am anxious to start feeling the baby move.. just for reassurance
Are you finding out gender at the "big" ultrasound? Most likely, just cause if it's a boy then we need to get rid of all the girl clothes and start getting boy clothes.
Any cravings? Junk food and fast food. but it changes from week to week, so who knows.
Anything else you want to mention: I have had a headache for 3 days and my neck is sore so hopefully it goes away soon. other then that stuff is normal as can be.. besides the fact that I am trying to mentally prepare for 5 kids.

How are you feeling lately? Fine except for the fact that I have GD already and the diet is getting old!
Are you showing yet and/or wearing maternity clothes? I'm overweight and big in the belly already so right now I just look like I've gained weight.
What are you most excited about now or in the next few weeks? Feeling consistent movement!
Are you finding out gender at the "big" ultrasound? We're still undecided
Any cravings? The cravings are not too bad, but I miss pizza especially.
Anything else you want to mention: Everyone who matters finally knows about the pregnancy, and I love that I no longer feel like I'm living a lie!

Due date: August 4

How are you feeling lately? Pretty good except waking up at 2, 3, or 4 am hungry and can't sleep until I eat. Then I sleep so good I don't want to get up!! And I can't stay awake past 8:30 pm either.

Are you showing yet and/or wearing maternity clothes? neither, I have plenty of room in my clothes after losing 50 pounds and I am still overweight. I haven't gained any weight yet either.

What are you most excited about now or in the next few weeks? Feeling movement and finally going to the doctor. Also excited to try a new doctor and hospital this time!!

Are you finding out gender at the "big" ultrasound? Probably, although I wish we could wait a bit longer.

Any cravings? No bake cookies and sometimes I just get so hungry and eat two meals worth of calories for breakfast, ugh.

Anything else you want to mention: We have a girl name picked out and I keep referring to the baby by it, I am going to feel a bit bad if baby is a boy. We just can't find any boy names we like at all. So baby is probably a boy LOL

Are you finding out gender at the "big" ultrasound? Yes. Hopefully baby cooperates!
Any cravings? Last week it was banana nut bread. Nothing out of the ordinary though.
Anything else you want to mention: Held my 1 week old nephew on Sunday and I soooooo got the itch for my little one to be here. Don't want to rush the pregnancy, but I can not wait for august to be here.

How are you feeling lately? So much better! I still feel exhausted by the end of the day, but oh well.
Are you showing yet and/or wearing maternity clothes? I have a wierd LOW bump, but I don't think I look preggers yet. I did break out the maternity jeans.

How are you feeling lately? Exhausted, but otherwise good. I was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, but the pain has pretty much disappeared since I got pg, which is awesome.
Are you showing yet and/or wearing maternity clothes? Showing a little. I've been wearing mat pants for a few weeks but only because all my work pants are too tight.
What are you most excited about now or in the next few weeks? feeling movement, and my first U/S (NT) on Wednesday. I can't wait to see/hear the heartbeat.
Are you finding out gender at the "big" ultrasound? No.
Any cravings? Crunchy, acidic, salty & spicy. Pad Thai, grapefruit, salt & vinegar chips. Things I love when not pg like coffee, sweets and chocolate are not that appealing right now.
Anything else you want to mention: DS1 is talking incessantly about twins. I would like to think I would be feeling stronger symptoms or showing more if that was the case, but I'm looking forward to proving him wrong at my u/s. Of course I would be happy if that's how things turned out, but I really just want 3 kids at this point.

How are you feeling lately? Good for the most part - the nausea has worn off, although I still start feeling pretty exhausted about 930, when I used to be a total night owl. Had a little nap this afternoon so feeling pretty good now but just about ready for bed..lol
Are you showing yet and/or wearing maternity clothes? Not really showing, but it's starting to feel uncomfortable when I suck it in, and a definite little bump when laying down. Have been wearing maternity pants/jeans which are too big standing up but so much more comfortable sitting down - it felt really uncomfy wearing normal pants or jeans and sitting in class, etc.
What are you most excited about now or in the next few weeks? Scheduling our ultrasound and popping out and finally looking pregnant, not just normal too-many-chips-&-girl-scout-cookies chunk.. Wink
Are you finding out gender at the "big" ultrasound? We've decided NOT to unless it's pretty obvious/unavoidable. Biggrin
Any cravings? Not really anymore.
Anything else you want to mention: We've had our boy name picked out since we were first married but finally have settled on a girl name! DH is really wanting a girl now that the name thing is settled... still holding out for a boy tho Wink

Also - don't forget to add your space if you haven't already!!! Smile

I realize it is the last day of February, but I'll still check in:

Name: Dawn
Due date: 8/28
How are you feeling lately? better, nausea is manageable - worst in the evenings
Are you showing yet and/or wearing maternity clothes? i feel like I just started showing in the past week, pulled out my maternity clothes yesterday, although I'm in the awkward stage where you don't fit in your normal clothes, but don't really fit in maternity clothes either!
We haven't told the kids yet - but last weekend DD made the observation - "mommy, your tummy is getting bigger like there's a baby in there!" I just validated that yes, my tummy is getting bigger, but it wasn't the right time to discuss. She wasn't questioning me, she was just making an observation Smile Will tell her soon!
What are you most excited about now or in the next few weeks? excited to start feeling baby move!
Are you finding out gender at the "big" ultrasound? sounds like we probably are - didn't with the 1st 2 but I think we will this time
Any cravings? not really

How are you feeling lately?y thank God I'm not sick anymore! my main complaint is runny stuffy nose, which is a pregnancy symptom, just one I haven't really dealt with in my previous pregnancies.
Are you showing yet and/or wearing maternity clothes? I'm huge. I think I started showing before I got my BFP! #5, what can you do?? as far as maternity clothes... well, I've been wearing those since my last pregnancy 2 years ago!
What are you most excited about now or in the next few weeks? Next week we are flying to NY for 3 weeks to visit with my family! I can't wait!! I'm a little nervous for the flight, but otherwise, very excited!
Are you finding out gender at the "big" ultrasound? not finding out. I'm scheduling the u/s because if I don't do I won't have an appt, but I haven't decided if I'm even going to go...
Any cravings? Pretty typical - pickles! I also made an awesome batch of homemade saurkraut that I've been eating non-stop!! yum!
Anything else you want to mention: I'm going to post an update b/c we've had a bit of sad news in our family as well... but I'm not going to post it here...
