Congratulations to you and Trey!!
Sending all my thoughts and wishes to you for a wonderful, healthy pregnancy!!
All the best!!
Wow!! Congratulations Jamie!!
Oh Jamie! I know you have no idea who i am... but I know your story and wanted to say Congrats! You have a world of people pulling for you.
Rebecca, thanks so much for bravely posting your birth experience. I'm not pg yet, but, due to TTC and it seeming like all my friends are pg, I think about what kind of birth I want. My friends in town have had great experiences with epidural/hospital birth and my cousins swear by home birth. Your experience is definitely something for me to think about. I have yet to read about/hear a women who regretted her homebirth (although I'm sure they're out there) but, due to my cousins, I hear all sorts of hospital stories. TFS!
In Atlantic Canada, midwives are not yet regluated, which makes a homebirth near impossible, otherwise I would have LOVED a homebirth. If I wasn't staying with my DH's parents, who were very "on edge", I would have put off going to the hospital. I wanted to stay at home until I felt like pushing! lol! And this is precisely my plan for the next birth. I'm going to buy a standard hospital doppler and I'm not leaving home until the baby is ready to come out.
OMG!!!!!!!!! Jamie....congratulations!!!!!!! That is a truly beautiful sight!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey Jamie - you found out on my birthday I found out about Zack the day before my birthday 6 years ago and he was born in mid-December, so I think you're looking at a December baby yourself!! Congrats, I'm thrilled for you!!!!!
OMG Jamie I am so so happy for you right now!!! That has to be one of the best news pics I have seen in a while!!
Thanks everyone! :bighug:
Total stranger here, but Oh-My-God, I had tears spring to my eyes when I saw your post, Jamie! If I hadn't been at work I would've jumped up and shouted!
congrats Jamie!! I'm soooo happy for you!!!
CONGRATULATIONS JAMIE!!! I am so happy for you!
jamie, I am so thirilled for you!!
Congratulations Jamie!! I am sooooo thrilled for you!!
Mr. Coffee heard me scream for joy for you. He said, "Tell Trey he's a stud! Heh heh!"
I'll tell him. He'll get a kick out of that!
Wendy, I have been there too. Please be patient with yourself. You can be envious and happy for someone all at the same time.
Oh Tea that is too funny, Still have my fingers crossed tightly for you Jamie. I guess I will be that way until your Ultrosound. I am still very very excited for you!!
Jamie, Sorry about the nausea... I threw up all over the city for the first 17 weeks of my pregnancy, so I feel for you! lol!
Just had to come check on you jamie, I'm loving the m/s! Sucks for you I know but it is still a good thing!
You have no idea who I am, I rarely post. But I really need to tell you how happy I am for you. Tears come to my eyes everytime I read your posts. Good luck with your pregnancy, can't wait to hear more!!
YAY Jamie!!! Once again, here I am congratulating you!!! Something tells me that you aren't getting tired of that though!!!! I love you girl and I am SO excited for you and your family!!!!
Ginger is a HUGE help. I drank TONS of ginger ale and sucked on ginger candy quite a bit. Hope the morning sickness lifts soon!! HUGS!
Congrats Jamie!!!!!!! I am so happy for you!!!!
Jamie!! Congrats! It always happens when you stop trying, right? Here's to a happy and healthy nine months!!!!
PS. what a beautiful name you have
Jaime-- I bet you throw up-- with a smile on your face! I m/c'd years ago and hadn't had morning sickness so when I had it the next time, I would run to the bathroom then afterward holler, "The baby is healthy!"
Happy anniversary, Jodie! :bighug:
Cathy, I wish you the very best, I hope the journey goes as easily as possible for you with a successful outcome!
Great news, Jaime!
When I got pregnant afetr an ectopic, around one month (when the ectopic became a problem) we could just see a swollen tube. You can't see fallopian tubes and the u/s tech told me that she wasn't supposed to tell me that I had to see my doctor the next day and why (had she not told me I wouldn't have bothered. I was a busy college student and sick of doctors making me run in for nothing.)
In subsequent pregnancies I'd make sure we couldn't see a tube and they'd flip out, "We can't see anything in the sac!" A midwife tried to convince me I had a blighted ovum and I was like, "Hold the f--- on! You can't see it this early! I'm here to make sure you can't see a tube!"
I'm glad that you saw the yolk and heard the heart beat, but sometimes they freak out not being able to see something when it's just too darned early!
Congratulations Jamie!!! :bighug:
I hear you, Jodie! TTC can be fun sometimes but there's also a time to just let it happen. ((((HUGS))))
Tea, where are you?
Thanks Wendy, I am a little worried about telling the Dr who is taking us through this course that we have not followed the instructions. But at the same time, it felt right. But I guess if we do fall pregnant it is going to be a blessing not a problem.
:goodluck: Cath!! I am very proud of you for taking this step. It takes a lot of courage.
Congrats, Jamie, I am so excited for you!
Jodie, I bet they hear that all the time. The only reason they have you abstain for a cycle is so you can learn your CM without anything confusing it. I would just do the kegels as soon as possible after BD and chart the next day like normal. No worries! That said, it's probably best to abstain for the rest of the cycle so they know you're trying to learn and so you can get accurate with it. Once you master the system then you can bend the rules
Thanks Wendy. I guess we can only try!
I started to put too much info in my journal-- someone could fins me out too easilly with all the rantings of school and people. I have to come up with a different name to post under!
(PS: Thank you for noticing!)
Tea, why not make it private & just invite those that you feel comfortable with? That is what I did, but I just haven't made the post about adding people!!! I will get around to it though!!!
Tea, I agree with Diane's Idea. I private journal is great for keeping things together. All of my Loveablebubbles81's journal has been moved to a private journal so I can go over it but no one else, unless asked that is.
Moved from rmacburn's journal
i TOTALLY understand...Amaya was a section too and I'm hoping for a natural birth next time around. I'm worried about labeling too and people being ready for the section to start before labor has even begun. Good luck to you! I wish bfing would have worked out better for me, but we did it for 4 months and though I'm not satisfied...I'm happy with that!
4 months of breastfeeding is still great!
Wendy, I really like your idea. I think if I was near you I would love a night out to the movies or to share a nice bottle of wine with women who are focussed on enjoying their husbands or just being a woman.
Hello everyone -
I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I have been keeping my journal here for about 4 months now, and just realized that this thread existed. I knew the journal was available for everyone to read, but had no idea that people could comment on it. So... THANK YOU to everyone who has commented on my journal and offered support. I apologize for never commenting back - I had no idea anyone was commenting. :oops:
My name is Rose and I am expecting Julia Rose on 6/23/07.
