Just for chatting

HEY. I so figured I would make a thread for random chat Smile

I was talking to my sister today and sent her a picture of me during the day... asked if she felt like it was more than just bloat. She said she didn't know... I just my mom told her that she thinks my body is already changing.. that even my hips are bigger already.

I feel that way too. I walk upstairs funny now. :/

Lol. I've been worried if I've gotten bigger or not. I'm pretty big already before pregnancy. I was excited to show early this time, since last time I didn't until 6 months or so. But now I just feel like I am big on top of big Sad DH says I look pregnant, but he's just too smart to say differently I think.

Lol I asked DH today if I look pregnant or just fat... And he said... "it's hard to tell." HAHA. I was like "Baaaabe." He immediately said I look pregnant.

Ugh i took some Zofran earlier today.. and it's starting to wear off... I feel super nauseous again. I wanna take another but I don't wanna get too constipated.

Shame! He was trying to figure out which answer would be the safest Wink

I half want to show early and I half don't. If I do then it means I get to tell people earlier but at the same time I don't want to jinx it by having too many people know too early.

I can feel that I'm filling out in the waist and I can't pull my stomach in as much as I used to so I feel like everyone must think I'm getting fat.... I feel fat too - weighed in at 140 lb yesterday. I was 133 last time they weighed me in Jan.

I am in some capri sweats today... And they are suffocating my stomach Sad I have to go get maternity pants/short/capris (i have some at my parents house I need to pick up and i need to buy more).

They hurt so bad today though. And I get the little sweatband indent marks on my stomach.

So I'm not imagining that my pants feel tighter, even though my weight has stayed exactly the same? Smile I'm behind all of you - only 6 wks today.

I haven't gained weight (I think). I definitely felt bigger at 6 weeks. It's only 5 days ago after all. lol

Oh the bloat! I am not showing yet, but i feel so squishy. I wore a size bigger pants today- mainly cuz I didnt have clean jeans and they were OK but I am still in my regular pants with a tad bit being uncomfy towards end of the day. I unfortunately lent out all my Maternity pants after DS, and well I never got them back. Now the friend lives in VA so I wont be getting them back. I weigh less than Pre DS, so I have a storage tub of jeans and pants that are 1-2 sizes bigger. Will likely have DH get those for me prior to our move in a month. I just want to make it to see the heart beat before anyone asking if I am pregnant. And no weight gain here...... yet.

So we sold DH's truck so we are down to 1 vehicle... It's weird. Its like now that I know I'm stuck at home I want to go out but when I could go out I never wanted to. HAHA.

@Sara- sounds like a good plan. I can fit into some pants that are typically to big for me... It makes me feel fatty lol.

I got rid of all my maternity clothes after my last pregnancy so Ive got to buy some more. I need stuff for work. Ive got my pj pants and sweats and a few shorts I can wear at home so thats no problem.

Atleast with me packing for us to move in a week (omg) I get a chance to go through everything I own. If only moving with kids and pregnant was easier.

Is it grumpy husband day?? Thats going on at my house today too! Boo!

We are also moving in June!!! I am seriously pretending its not happening in hopes it just happens on its own, magically! One can hope right?

lol yea but hoping that it will do it on its own isnt good. Ive tried that. Bad thing about this move is I still havent told my parents and my dad is helping us move. Although I did help my brother move a few weeks ago but that was easier to get around because we had 2 of my 3 kids plus my friends 18 year old and my brother had his 4 kids so I stayed on kid duty. I wont be able to get away with it this time. Ug. Moving sucks...

I ALMOST bought some clearance maternity clothes tonight from Target...hmmmm....still trying to convince myself its a good idea.

I'm really excited about having a baby belly again...just as long as its all baby and not a foodie belly too!! I remember last pregnancy I showed FAST...like people were guessing before I planned to tell. Smile

This time I'm so stinkin' excited because we've been trying for so long. I'm telling as soon as all my family knows on Mother's Day! Its going to shock everyone because they have all began to assume that we can't have any more; even going so far as to try to convince me that I should just give up, I must not be meant to have more kids. This is going to the most fun pregnancy reveal!!

soooo..... yesterday i had to unbutton my top button on my pants yesterday afternoon, after i ate some ice cream...LOL.... I got super bloated in the begining, and then the last 2 wks i was doing good, and now i'm bloated again...doah..... i did step on the scale and have not gained any weight, so that's good. With DD i didn't gain weight til 20wks...... i doubt i can do that again - i also didn't get a belly until like 23wks....when i was crampy and uncomfortable for like 3 days and then BAM!! -- belly.

Starting to get icky feeling when i don't eat every few hours and yesterday when i did eat, it would be fine for like 30mins, and then it'd start up again, so i finally got ice cream and that for some reason helps and it went away for the rest of the afternoon, same thing happened with my DD, but it was MCD's ice cream cones, this time it's baskin robbins oreo ice cream....i don't think that's going to stay off much longer if i keep up with the ice cream...lol

My super-low work pants are now too tight on my belly so I have to go get maternity pants. I'm a little superstitious about that tho, like I might jinx the whole pregnancy by getting maternity clothes too early. Stupid really.

Yesterday everything I ate made me feel ill and last night all I could stomach was some corn-on-the-cob and an acorn squash. Now today I'm feeling great!

If you dont want to buy maternity clothes yet Id buy a size or two bigger than you normally wear in regular pants. Might get you by for a little bit.

I don't think that would work because the waist bands would still be sitting on my belly. Plus I hate saggy bums on my pants. I'm just being superstitious and silly. DH is coming to Old Navy with me tomorrow so I'll have some comfy pants soon. Thankfully I'm working from home today so I'm in my pj pants.

I feel the same. Every time I look down all I see is BELLY but DH says I'm just looking a little thick around the waist. I don't know what my job situation will be seeing as I'm contracted to the company so I don't think it makes a difference when they know. I will be telling them once we've made it fully public.

I kind of want everyone to be able to see it already because then I would have an excuse to tell people early Smile

Me too! My skirts don't fit right, I'm sticking out past my boobs, which even at my biggest non-pregnant I don't do. Buuuutttt, so far, no one suspects...hehehe...we're telling our families on Mother's Day. I can't wait!! I even work with family, so there is literally NO ONE to tell it to that won't spill the beans to family. My hubby on the other hand has already told all the guys at work, all the guys on his district ministry team, etc., etc., etc. NO FAIR!!

On another note, the MS has completely gone away for the past several days, but now the girls are starting to get sore, which had't happened up til now.

Aaaannnddd, on another totally random note, I bought a little NB winter dress on clearance for $1 this week!!!! Wahoo!!! We are so hoping for a girl...even DS...so here's to hoping!! I've already bought so many little girl clothes over the past 3 yrs, hoping and praying for another child, even when the doc told me that they thought it was a "fluke" we ever even got pg w/ DS.

How early can you find out the gender of boy vs. girl reliably? We saw on DS at 13 wks, but I know that won't happen again this time, especially if it is a girl, which DH and I both think it is. I get lots of ultrasounds usually b/c of being high-risk, so just wondering!!

I am totally wearing like... 2 pairs of pants lately.. and they are maternity. I have more but they don't fit yet (too big).... I saw my friend today who is 14weeks and she's got a cute lil baby bump.. it's her first. I feel like I have one.. but it doesn't really show to other people.. I just walk funny (got the pregnant waddle already)... My HIPS HURT! :/ Ugh.

Jana- ONE DOLLAR!!! Oooo That's awesome. I waited to purchase anything for Kamdyn until I had my 20 week ultrasound.. which was good because we decided not to buy anything for him after the ultrasound because we didn't think he'd make it :/ We will probably wait until the 16-20 week area to buy anything again.. I just get too nervous..
ALSO- i think they say reliable at about 16 weeks.. Smile

I am starting to look thicker. Ugh. I won't last until 12 weeks without people asking and I am not good at lying. Good luck moving Katie. Anyone else spilling the beans on Mother's Day ?

We thought about it but 8 weeks is still a little too early for us to tell the family, given our history. Plus we didn't get a copy of the u/s last appt and I'd really like to have something to show them. We're going to do it on MIL's birthday, May 24.

What a happy/sad day!!

Happy b/c we're excited about telling our 'news' tomorrow and b/c DH, DS, ans I had a really enjoyable day together out running errands.

But sad b/c my 93 y.o. mamaw passed away tonight. Sad She had dementia really bad and I know she's in a much better place, but I'm sad b/c we were going to see her tomorrow for Mother's Day and were going to tell her about the new baby. Now its too late. I miss her already! I really regret not going to see her more often. Sad But there is peace even still, knowing she isn't in a confused state of mind any longer and is now at long last with my pawpaw again. I've got another reason to make sure heaven is my final home!!

Jana, I'm sorry about your grandmother; it's so conflicting when they're ill. I know I was so sad when mine passed, but also grateful as she had not been able to enjoy her life for many years. In my mind, she was finally the sharp, witty person she'd been in my childhood, instead of the frail, confused person she was at the end.

What did you ladies get for Mom's Day?
I got a platter from my Gma, a charm bracelet from DH, a precious moments figure (a little boy with holding a sign saying I love you mom) from my DS. My friend from church brought me these flower pens she made and some magnets. It was nice. DH spent wayyy to much money on the charm bracelet.

I went to lunch at my Gmas house and saw my family and stayed there for a couple hours. We then went to a dinner at SIL's house and spent time with him family. I hated being there. Normally I love being with his family but I just felt completely ignored. It was kinda crappy.

I got my Gma some scent oils for her house, my mom I got a $10 gift card to starbucks, and I got MIL a BurtBees Sampler pack. Each got a card as well. I also got DH's gma a card but didn't get a gift because 1) we NEVER see her and 2) I have NO idea what to get her.

Ours was a non-event seeing as I'm not a mom yet. We skyped his folks, and I texted my mom.

DH did make me a teeny little postage stamp sized card that said "Happy Mom's day, Love Squishy Bump". It made me cry Smile

Maddie sounds like a great day for you !!

I got to sleep in. DH got me a card and a gift card, which will likely go toward maternity clothes
Lol. We went to dinner with the whole family do 16 of us. Then over to my parents for swimming. We were all thoroughly wiped
Out last night. Still tired today. It was a very nice day though.

Sad Okay, the wonky emotions are starting to happen. I'm noticing myself starting to swing over things I usually don't find funny/sad/upsetting/etc. Ugh!! I hate this part!

But other than that, this pregnancy is so far easier than the one with DS. Smile Hope the trend continues.

And to answer your question, Maddie, I got a $25 gift card to Macy's and a big bouquet of GORGEOUS flowers that my husband arranged for me himself. My DS made me a candy bouquet and a handprinted hand towel. Smile I also got the satisfaction of FINALLY being able to tell about beanie baby!! Smile

I got a apron with my sons hand prints on them that he made at school and a packet of flowers attached in home made wrapping paper. From my oldest I got a questionaire about me and some home made cards I can use. I also got a necklace. We spent the day with my family had a cook out with my parents, my brother and his wife and 4 kids, my other brother and me and my 3 kids. We all had a blast. Ate outside but was a little cold.

so, we have a 2 bedroom+loft townhouse and we are debating turning the loft into a bedroom. It'd be DD's room and i'd keep hte nursery as is. We also want to move, so i'm not sure what to do..... i know we will never get the money back that we put in to build the room - however, i think we could sell it at a higher price cuz ti would have the 3 bedrooms instead of the 2 bedrooms, like most the models around us. We have a lot of foreclosures around us so that will def. hurt us in the selling price. Now the baby will stay with us in our room til probably 6-8months....so we do have time to think about it..... and i'm wondering if the kids could just share a room at that time and then we move ........ i feel like if we build the loft into a room, then we have to stay a few more years, but honestly i just don't want to anymore....we were only suppose to be here for like 2-3yrs, ya know the 1st place then you move to bigger and better....it's a beautiful place that we built, but we're running out of room....we are just busting at the seams....7 yrs later.... We found a great home - 4bed, basement, fenced yard, deck - like 3 houses down from my parents....which i'd love to move to ....obviously it isn't going to happen, but it's really made me start thinking about what we should do. I made a call to our mortgage guy to find out if we could even afford to buy a house or at least how much we can..... i just don't know if we should turn the loft into a bedroom or not....no matter what if it's a bedroom, it's not like i'll be like -- oh man, i wish we hadn't done that..ya know.... i just don't know if it's worth doing it, if we are only there for like a year or two.....

Hmmm Idk Jules. I wouldn't if I were you. I would be one of those people who say, "why did we do that again?" I think it depends on your mortgage guy and what he says though. Good Luck dear!

My sister is going to skype my family today to announce the gender of the baby with us (she goes today and they are going to write it down). I am so excited for her. She is due Oct 8th. It's nice to be pregnant at the same time as she is and we are only a few months apart.. but we live 5 hours from each other. I am nervous for her appt today.... It's her *BIG* Ultrasound y'know.. and that's when I found out about Kamdyn's heart defect. I am praying that her appt will go great. I'm sure it'll be fine.

Maddie how did your sisters appointment go today and the big reveal? Everything ok with the baby?

I think I waited too long today to eat dinner I feel HORRIBLE. Plus Ive barely been eating till late in the day. My work still doesnt know and neither does my parents and one brother. I spend alot of tonight with him and couldnt really explain why I felt horrible. So Im laying in bed while my oldest lays next to me watching under cover boss and the other two be buttheads and not listening to me. Great night. Not.....

Thats awesome for the baby. Took my oldest brother 3 girls to get his boy. As for me telling people Im not sure. I have my year anniversary at work on Tuesday so sometime after my review I think I will tell my job. As for my family Im possibly thinking at my daughters birthday having her wear a shirt that say Im the big sister or something along those lines. But my parents wont be there so Im not sure. lol
