Yeah, children tend to have active mouths lol. I told my son there's a baby in my belly (after he was running around with my pregnancy tests in his eyes, oh boy lol), but he doesn't get it. He said he has a baby in his belly too :) Once my belly is big he will understand, because he knows what pregnant bellies are all about.
I can't wait to start seeing ultrasound pictures!!!!
I think we'll wait until after our 11 wk appointment to be sure things are going ok (assuming I can hide it that long!). I had a M/C in March and DS knew about the baby already, so it's been hard to field questions from him about it.
Today was an insane day. I forgot to set my alarm so I woke up 10 minutes before I needed to be out the door. I have never gotten ready for work so fast in my life. :)
I am paranoid...with 2 m/c in one year, I am really trying my best to do everything right. Knowing already that I am pregnant, I still tested again yesterday. Paranoia just won over my common sense. I mean I have not gotten my MS and even if anything bad would happen, I know the test would still show a + due to lingering hormones. In any way, I am excited.
I am a little annoyed at DH, for not mentioning anything about the situation. When I told him he just smiled and has not addressed it (a week ago). I get it, he is afraid of us going through the whole process of a loss again and D&C ...but I am too. We won't be telling others until the first trimester is over. I just didn't think that included us not speaking about it! At the same time, I can't be thinking negative. We were TTC and have gotten that opportunity again, so I am just praying for HH9M.
With my 1st M/C, I had already told DS about having a sibling and he was all excited. He was 3 yrs old and after the M/C he remembered and asked me a few times about his "brother" in my belly. He would bring a baby rattle near my stomach. After a few months DS just forgot. The second m/c, I didn't tell him anything just in case anything went wrong. This time around he will also find out after the fist trimester, just in case the worst goes on. In the past two months or so, DS has been obsessed with babies. Every time he sees a baby he makes comments about how cute they are,and will start playing peek a boo with them. Last weekend we were at a department store and he saw a baby in a stroller. He tells me, "mommy we need one of that." Puzzled, I asked him what is it that we needed. He says, "We need a baby, we don't have a baby. I already told you, we need a baby for us." Yes, he left me speechless and with tears in my eyes. I just hugged him and after a few seconds told him that he was my baby. Hopefully he gets his wish
My back has been killing me, to the point were I kept on waking up, tossing, and turning all night for the past 3 nights :( In the bright side, no nausea or :puke2: as in my previous pregnancies. I also feel really sluggish, and don't feel like doing anything.
I can't wait for my appt on the 18th :)
I'm sorry to hear about all of your losses :( I personally have never had one, but for some reason I am very paranoid this pregnancy, whereas with my son I was not at all. I've had spotting since the day after I got my BFP, but it's literally like a spot here and there and when I wipe maybe twice a day. It's unnerving though :( It's like a peach kind of color. I talked to the midwife on the phone about today when she called and she didn't seem too concerned, but it still freaks me out!
Aurora, when was/is your appt today? Any news?
I had my appt today. It went well, had a vag U/S and everything looked good. He prescribed me some Prometrium, since I have a history of miscarriages. My progesterone levels were not tested, but he prescribed it just in case my levels are low. So now I am on prenatal vitamins, extra 800 mcg of folic acid, DHA supplement, and the prometrium.

Yay I scheduled my first appointment! It is next thursday the 26th!! So excited!
My appt is Oct 2nd at my normal OB. I'm going there first to make sure there is only one baby in there (and that it has a heartbeat) before I go to my birth center appt on Oct 23rd. I don't want to do paperwork and contracts etc with the birth center if I don't have to.
My first ultrasound is next thursday. They'll just be checking if it's ectopic. I'm not sure what they'll see at 5 weeks gestation.
We haven't scheduled our first midwife appointment. She wants to wait and see what the ultrasound shows.
If all is well, I'll have my midwife appt and have my iron and progesterone tested.
At the moment I'm using a progesterone rub every 3rd day.
I still haven't heard from my midwife about a first appointment, but I did get a letter in the mail about my first ultrasound. It's schedule for Nov. 13th! My husband and I are antsy though so I think on Oct. 10 or 11 we are going to go to an independent ultrasound place for a scan. And shortly after I should have my first in home consultation with the midwife. I'm excited!
