Anything else you want to share? I am so emotional right now. In church the other night the priest said we have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season and all I could think about we my little bean. I felt so silly crying in church like that. Then after church we showed DS's shirt which said Big Brother (since I had told my family earlier that day) and asked if he could figure it out. He quickly told us that we had figured something out Wink This is the same priest that married us three years ago and has baptised our two kiddos since then.

Age: 28

Due Date: July 18

Other children: Just my kitties

How are you feeling? Tired, emotional and like I have done 500 crunches but used my uterus intead of my abs!

Cravings or aversions? Apparently this baby likes Balsamic Vinegar because its going on just about anything and everything.

What is your worst symptom? Thankfully my nausea has been pretty minimal (with a few momentary exceptions), but my boobs are KILLING me, I've had a few moments of overwhelmed panic where I just need to take a minute and cry, and if I don't get my mid day nap, watch out!

Are you exercising? I'm walking 4 times a week (2 times with my mother and 2 times with my husband). Its more my time to bond with each of them over these big changes than anything else.

Do you plan to find out the sex of the baby? Oh yeah. Lots of inquiring minds around us want to know.

Anything else you want to share? Just really hope my medical hurries up and goes into a effect because I feel so helplessly limited right now Sad

Name: Andi

Age: 34

Due Date: 7/22 via u/s, 7/28 via my chart, will confirm next week with dr.

Other children: John, 3.5

How are you feeling? Really pretty good! I was so sick by this point with my first pregnancy that every morning I wake up so happy that I don't feel as bad! I do get really hungry mid-afternoon, which does make me feel a bit nauseous, but then I eat a few things and it's fine. I get pretty tired if I have too long of a day but normally I'm not tooooo bad.

Cravings or aversions? No aversions except this one restaurant sounds bad to me. Really craving pizza and Mexican food.

What is your worst symptom? Been really tired the last few days because I had a long day (5:45am-2am) on Saturday. Also not a fan of the bloating. Or being nauseous ever, even though it's not that bad.

Are you exercising? Kind of. I'm in a show right now and I do have one fast cardio-ish dance, plus I'm pretty much on my feet for the whole show, and some days I have two shows. Otherwise, not a chance. No time!

Do you plan to find out the sex of the baby? Of course! I can't wait!

Anything else you want to share? Not really, I'm happy to be pregnant and excited for Christmas!

Name: Rachel

Age: 25

Due Date: July 27th, have yet to confirm with dr.

Other children: Nope, just a 2yr old pup that doesn't leave my side.

How are you feeling? Nauseous day and night, finally got some relief with seabands that came in the mail today! I didn't think they would work, but so far they are the only things that are making me able to breathe and not as nauseous.

Cravings or aversions? Aversions to everything, but every once in a while I will want something like the other night a bean and cheese burrito and I am eating anything that makes me more hungry than nauseous.

What is your worst symptom? Nausea, one morning it was so bad at work that I left early, went home and cried on my DH's shoulder and he made me go to bed and then made me some top ramen which I ate all gone!

Are you exercising? I try to take a walk when I feel good, maybe 3 times a week. Other than that, too tired and just lay around.

Do you plan to find out the sex of the baby? No, I don't think we will, like people say it's the last suprise on this earth.

Anything else you want to share? I am so lucky to have my DH, he is so supportive and takes care of me. I am trying to take comfort in the nausea because its proof that something is growing, but some days its hard and I am already saying no more kids. I can't wait to be over with this first trimester and start to feel more energetic!

Name: Carissa

Age: I will be 29 in 11 days...

Due Date:July 10th, (by US dating)

Other children: DD Ixannah, (9) and DS Mason, Diablo

How are you feeling? Pregnant......Nauseated, tired, sometimes dizzy. Basically sloth like....

Cravings or aversions? It really depends on the day. I have waaay more aversions than cravings. I have been living off of frozen mango, and sour stuff, (pickles, green olives, Suddenly Salad, salt and vinegar chips, etc) which is weird because normally I hate sour stuff...

What is your worst symptom? The nausea.....

Are you exercising? I wish. I was running about 12-17 miles a week before I got preggo, but I just can't seem to find the energy right now, maybe once the 2nd tri hits???

Do you plan to find out the sex of the baby? I cannot decide....DH is game either way, although I think he would more prefer a surprise. I am such a planner though that the thought of not knowing might drive me nuts!!! This will most likely be our last though so it will be the last chance for a surprise...Sigh I don't

Anything else you want to share? I am just so excited to be here, some of you know my story, and it has been a LOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNGGGGG and painful journey to get here, so I am just grateful to be able to share all of this with you all Smile

Name: Maggie

Age: 33

Due Date: July 2

Other children: DS, Griffin, will be 3 next month--he is awesome!

How are you feeling? OK, but kind of blah. I have days where I feel great and happy, and other days when I feel so down and just yucky. Not too nauseous, luckily, and usually eating something takes care of it. Although the last couple days it has been worse...but was getting better before that. I was feeling really tired, but I've been feeling better the last week or so, like my body is adjusting.

Cravings or aversions? Extremely averse to spaghetti (I think its the smell of the meatballs actually) and fast food sounds really gross, but basically craving everything else, especially protein and, Mexican, etc. Also fruit and yogurt. I cannot eat enough fruit and I have been downing yogurt like they are taking it off the market. The last couple days I craved salad, which is good! Finally something healthy.

What is your worst symptom? I've been on a pretty short fuse, which is tough because I keep losing me temper with DS and I feel bad because it is totally my fault. He's just being a 3 year old. I've also been saying irritable things out loud to DH that normally I would just keep to myself, which has been getting me in trouble. I'm just tired of feeling so yucky in general.

Are you exercising? Occasional walks and I went to one yoga class. I want to exercise more. DH and I used to take a walk every night after work, but lately it has been dark so we haven't been.

Do you plan to find out the sex of the baby? I was thinking not for a while, but DH wants to and I don't really feel that strongly about not finding out, and part of me wants to know, so we probably will. My feelings about it started to change when I realized I really want a girl. For a while I felt like I didn't have a preference, and so not finding out was easier since I just didn't care which it was. Now that I care, I want to find out more so that I can be excited about getting the girl or have time to readjust my thinking and get excited about a brother for DS!

Anything else you want to share? I have a contract I'm working on and have been really unmotivated to work on it. I'm trying to get back into it because I want to get as much done early on as I can so the organization doesn't worry that I won't finish. But I am really excited for the baby. Also nervous!
