How are you feeling? To be honest I feel pretty crappy lately! I've had this horrible cold for a week already and my nausea kicked in about the same time. I never get "morning sickness" - I get all day sickness Sad It's a viscious cycle of nothing sounds good to eat, but if I don't eat, I get even more sick. It's a chore to put food in my mouth just to hope that my stomach will feel better. BUT, this is likely my last pregnancy, so I'm bound & determined to try to cherish every moment of this pregnancy!
How many weeks are you? 7 weeks 1 day
Have you been to the doctor/had an ultrasound yet? Wasn't planned, but yes, had an u/s earlier this week d/t some spotting - everything looked fine!
Do you have any names picked out? Not at all!
Who have you told/haven't you told? We told our immediate families right away. DH & I have started telling coworkers yesterday.
Any cravings yet? No, more so aversions - nothing sounds good!
I am nervous/anxious/scared/worried about: So scared to have a preemie again!!! Also, can I really handle 3 kids??!!
I am excited/happy about: Just happy to be pregnant again and trying to enjoy it!

Anything else you would like to share? I have been able to get back to exercise this week and I am so happy about that. But I secretly worry that exercising and not gaining weight is bad for the baby. I am officially obese so I am not supposed to gain alot though. I want to be all baby this time.

Stephanie, I'm obese too...and I don't exercise except for what walking I do at work. When I got pregnant, I got m/s. I'm 28 weeks tomorrow and still have m/s. I've lost weight from when I first got pregnant, I'm 17 lbs down total. My OB seems completely unconcerned about me losing weight. She said that the baby is going to take what the baby needs, regardless. Only recently have I even felt like eating sometimes - and DH and the OB said I need to eat more meat.. which I just want to throw in their face..LOL

Do you have any names picked out? DH has picked a name, but I'm not sure I like it. Or rather, I like it, but I don't know if it works with our older daughter's name.
Who have you told/haven't you told? We told DH's family and a few friends. My parents aren't speaking to me right now, so I'm not going to bother telling them. They'll either have to stop being so immature and petty, or they'll have to find out on facebook when we make our big announcement.

I am nervous/anxious/scared/worried about: I'm sure if I sat and thought about things to be anxious about, I could come up with a list. But I learned the past few years that there is no use worrying about something until there is a problem sitting there in front of you. So no... I'm not worried about a thing! And I refuse to be! Biggrin I've been caught in that cycle of fear, and it's no way to live.
I am excited/happy about: That there's actually a real live baby inside me!! After all these years of nonviable pregnancies... this one is for REAL! And it's surreal at the mo'...
