Any other children/how old: DS1(5 almost 6) DS2 (3) DD (22 months)
Due date: November 21st
Whens you're next appt?: June 12th (16 week quad screen)
Are you finding out the Baby's Gender/when: Yes, hopefully at our 20 week appt July 6th
Names yet?: Have only found 1 girl name we can semi agree on, Phoenix Marie. We shall see
How are you feeling?: Pretty good. Starting to get some energy back, nausea is now just a general gagyness. In a pretty good place emotionally. Still have my down days, but can usually snap myself out of it
Cravings: Sweets, subs, tilapia (very bland, no major meaty taste/smell), Hu-Hot's peanut sauce.
Adversions: Milk, the smell of meat cooking, strong meaty tastes, bad smells
What are you most excited about: That I am starting to feel the baby move. Seems like this baby is a much quieter baby than my other babies. Also, just getting to know this LO as she/he grows. Watching my belly grow. The kids kiss and try to feed the baby through my belly button. Really cant wait for Daddy and the kids to actually feel the baby move. Also, finding out the baby's sex.
What are you most nervous about: The fact that the dr thinks that I am already starting to have BH contractions... makes me worry about having the actual pre term contractions that I have had in my other pregnancies... I am really hoping not to have them this time
Anything else you want to add? So excited for everyone as we get further into our pregnancies. Now, let the real fun begin
How far along are you: 17 weeks plus a few days
Any other children/how old: yes, a son named Leo. he is 21 months.
Due date: november 6th
Whens you're next appt?: i need to make an appointment for the big ultrasound within the next two weeks.
Are you finding out the Baby's Gender/when: no, not this time!
Names yet?: no, we are in the midst of moving and have been too busy to talk about names.
How are you feeling?: great except i have severe hip and lower back pain due to a previous injury and aggravated by pregnancy. will see an orthopedic doctor on monday and hopefully will get in some PT and chiro.
Cravings: anything fattening and high calorie
Adversions: nothing really
What are you most excited about: i am very excited to meet the little baby!
What are you most nervous about: hoping the pregnancy goes smoothly without any surprises. last pregnancy, my water broke at 28 weeks, was admitted to the hospital and was told i needed to be on strict bedrest for remainder. my son was fine and was finally born at 38 weeks but i don't want that to happen again.
Anything else you want to add? i'm glad to be writing on here!
How far along are you: Almost 19 weeks
Any other children/how old: Brody, 3.5
Due date: Oct 26thish- Hopefully not too late into November!! (I went so late with DS)

Are you finding out the Baby's Gender/when: Found out GIRL yesterday. Still doubtful, gonna get a 4d scan just to make sure in a couple months hehe
Names yet?: Ugh, I have some, but none that we agree on
How are you feeling?: Fat, but good for once!! Back hurts, but no more sickness and getting more energy
Cravings: Nothing really. Just food. haha
What are you most excited about: Finishing the room, were remodeling so Im anxious to have a room for baby and for DS (hes switching) and decorate and it'll feel REAL
What are you most nervous about: Ummm finding out its not a girl now that i've gotten my hopes up. Getting too sore to work (my back KILLS me at work.. idk how long I'll last)... Stretch marks... gaining too much weight...
Anything else you want to add? Umm I just started shopping and love finding deals! if anyone sees any online or in store they should post great deals!
How far along are you: 14w1d
Any other children/how old: Kostas, almost 5
Due date: Nov 28th-29th, something like that LOL
Whens you're next appt?: June 27th
Are you finding out the Baby's Gender/when: Definitely! I can't wait!
Names yet?: Yes, DH and I have settled on both our boy name and girl name.
How are you feeling?: Pretty good most days. The last couple days I've had a bit of nausea again but hopefully its short lived.
Cravings: Nothing really.
Adversions: I never know what it will be until its right in front of me LOL
What are you most excited about: Feeling bigger movement!
What are you most nervous about: Gaining a cr@p load of weight :S
Anything else you want to add? I wore my first bump showing off shirt to work today! I still kind of just look fat, but most people know I'm pregnant by now and think I looked cute, so I'll take it
Mama to Kostas with the Mostest, born 07/10/07
and Marek "Cricket" Joshua, born 12/07/12
How far along are you: 14w 3d
Any other children/how old: 1 DS (5)
Due date: 11/27/12
Whens you're next appt?: 6/11/12
Are you finding out the Baby's Gender/when: next appointment (6/11) we might find out the gender YAY! XD If not then 6/19 I'm doing a 3D sneak peek.
Names yet?: For a girl it will be Elizabeth or Sophie for a boy Carson or Luke - DH doesn't really get a say this time and he seems actually kinda ok with that lol
How are you feeling?: Pretty much the same as my 1st trimester but even more exhausted. MS has not gone away and I'm a bit disappointed by that I have my good days and I have my bad ones.
Cravings: Orange Juice, Pickles, Olives, Soft Pretzels, cold cut sandwiches on rye, cheese, and sadly margaritas/sangria (which I obviously can't give into).
Adversions: Coffee, kiwis, hotdogs, and a few other things that I know of but don't come to mind at the moment.
What are you most excited about: Finding out the gender, I'll be so happy no matter boy or girl but the suspense to know which one is killing me. I also can't wait until DH and DS can feel the baby move on the outside of my tummy.
What are you most nervous about: I keep worrying that this won't last (still) and that something is going to go wrong, I dread having my 20wk u/s because even though I'll find out the sex they'll also check for birth defects which I'm worried about because of the fertility drugs.
Anything else you want to add? nope, just wishing Nov would come faster!
How far along are you: 16 weeks
Any other children/how old: Aiden is 19 months
Due date: 14th, but fully preparing to go to 42 weeks
Whens you're next appt?: June 13th - 18 weeks. Will also be my anatomy scan!
Are you finding out the Baby's Gender/when: Telling them the same thing I told the tech with DS - if they're certain tell me at the u/s, otherwise I'll wait till birth! This should be my only ultra sound and I'd rather not know than get the great switch at birth!
Names yet?: None. We've halted all discussions until after the u/s.
How are you feeling?: Better, but still the occasional nausea. Some days I have energy, some I have none. Had to believe that at this point with DS I was out clubbing on the Vegas strip (we lived there at that point) until 3 and 4 am! I felt great with him.....definitely not so this time!
Aversions: Just to garbage, bad foods, etc.Those bad smells are bothering me more now than a month ago!
What are you most excited about: Feeling the baby move! I heard a lot of placenta noises last night on my doppler, so wondering if I have an anterior placenta.
What are you most nervous about: Getting my VBAC. I'm really nervous about getting bad news at my u/s that would prevent me from a vaginal birth.
Anything else you want to add? I'm glad we're all getting into the 2nd tri! This is when I finally started to really get to know people on my son's BB.
~Jackie, mommy to Aiden (11/2/10) and Zoe (VBAC 11/27/12)
How far along are you: 16w4d (I think?)
Any other children/how old: DD, 3 years old next week
Due date: November 12 or 13
Whens you're next appt?: June 11
Are you finding out the Baby's Gender/when: Hopefully at my ultrasound on June 26
Names yet?: Not really. DH and I have different tastes, for one, and for another the middle name will be Korean and FIL refuses to pick names until he knows the gender. It's kind of hard to throw around first names when the middle name is still up in the air.
How are you feeling?: Lots of headaches and dry heaving. Frequent low blood sugar (shaking, sweating, etc). Other than that I'm feeling much better than in previous weeks.
Cravings: Not much food sounds good to me.
Aversions: Not really. I can eat pretty much anything, just nothing sounds very good.
What are you most excited about: Only a few weeks until we (hopefully) find out the gender
What are you most nervous about: The long drive to the hospital
Anything else you want to add? I've been having BH, too. I didn't get them until just a few weeks before DD was born, so this is very odd for me. Hopefully it's normal?

6w5d on 6/19/07 hb of 107 bpm 10/1/07. Lost at 7w6d
How far along are you: 17w1d
Any other children/how old: Drew 9, Brinley 7, Rowan 4, Eleanor 2
Due date: Nov 8th
Whens you're next appt?: June 5th, doc said I would have an u/s at that appt even though I'll only be 17w5d
Are you finding out the Baby's Gender/when: Hopefully on Tuesday!
Names yet?: None yet...
How are you feeling?: Meh...mornings suck. I feel so nauseated and I gag on yogurt, bananas, etc. I'm not a big cereal person either. The neasea pretty much goes away after that though. I'm having really bad allergies lately, especially at night. Ugh..
Cravings: I crave things I know I can't have. Like a salad from my favorite restaraunt (Cafe Rio), and it's a good 40 minute drive to get there so I rarely indulge!
Adversions: Still struggling a LOT with chicken. I can do beef hamburgers, but in spaghetti sauce or tacos - YUCK.
What are you most excited about: Finding out the gender, painting...making it seem more real. It's still not real to me yet, but we just mailed out our announcements to our families, so it's going to become real pretty fast!
What are you most nervous about: That something might be wrong. I still feel a little uneasy about my 13wk u/s and the fact that my OB wants to do another one at my next appt.
Anything else you want to add? I'm going to force DH to take me shopping this weekend. I've never been preg in the summer (my babies are allborn in the spring), so I only have 2 short sleeve shirts and it is getting HOT here!! And with 4 kids home for the summer, I can wear a shirt for about 2 hours before it's dirty and unwearable outside the house!
