Name: Jackie

How far along are you: 11 weeks and I don't know how many days, that's why I have a siggy Lol

Any other children/how old: Aiden will be 18 months Wednesday

Due date: Nov 14-28

Whens you're next appt?: Next week on Wednesday

Are you finding out gender?: If it's easily known at the anatomy scan, we'll find out. Otherwise we're okay with waiting.

Names yet?: We haven't started discussing names at all.

How are you feeling?: Today I've felt way better! Hope it's a turning point and not a fluke.

Cravings: None.

Adversions: All food.

What are you most excited about: Getting the birth that I wanted with DS! I'm so excited to BW a new squish too. Biggrin

What are you most nervous about: DH may be gone for 2 weeks in November and if he's gone, he's gone no coming back if I call in labor. I'm also really nervous that there's the potential that we could be moving in December; even more nerve wrecking is that it could be overseas, which means DH would leave me here with two kids alone for the time it'll take me to get the baby's passport and medical screening done.

Anything else you want to add? Just counting down till the 2nd tri.

Name: Harmony

How far along are you: 12 weeks even

Any other children/how old: DD, Pearl, will be 3 in about a month

Due date: November 13, +/- a week or two

Whens you're next appt?: May 14, I believe

Are you finding out gender?: We hope to!

Names yet?: We've got a few that we like, but that doesn't really mean that much this early on.

How are you feeling?: I was feeling great last week, but this week has been kind of rough. The morning sickness was basically gone, and now it's back and the things that usually help aren't helping as much. I also had a lot of energy last week, and it seems to be disappearing these days.

Cravings: They change daily... but mostly meat, fat, and salty foods.

Adversions: These also change daily. It's usually what I was craving the day before. Blum 3

What are you most excited about: The prospect of Pearl finally having a playmate other than me... in 2 or 3 years.... Wink

What are you most nervous about: I think it's a tie between the drive to the hospital (45 minutes in good traffic, 1.5 hours in bad traffic) and having to manage by myself during the days with two kids and a dog. :eek:

Anything else you want to add? not that I can think of

How far along are you: 11 weeks

Any other children/how old: two girls ages 5 and 4

Due date: Nov 19th

Whens you're next appt?: End of this month

Are you finding out gender?: NO, we found out with both girls and are choosing to keep it a surprise this time.

Names yet?: I like Elizabeth for a girl but not set on it. We have no idea for a boy.

How are you feeling?: Lazy, tired, fat.
Cravings: Anythign sweet. I normally eat very healthy however, this pregnancy I feel sick just thinking about a salad. :question:

Adversions: Most healthy food. And some smells such as cocoa butter.

What are you most excited about: Looking pregnanty, and not feeling like a blob. I am also excited to feel this lil one move.

What are you most nervous about: finances. and having complications such as IUGR like I had with my other two.

Anything else you want to add? I'm glad this seems to be a small group of nice ladies. I am part of another group on another board on a different site that Is chalk full of entertainment. No, really those women are bat **** crazy. It's pure entertainment but I don't understand why so many people are so nasty to each other. That is why I'm glad pg.org is smaller. However, I agree that it has been incredibly slow. I know I would be on here a lot more if I could get it to work from my phone.

How far along are you: 12w4d

Any other children/how old: Drew 9, Brinley 7, Rowan 4, Eleanor 2

Due date: Nov 8th

Whens you're next appt?: May 8th

Are you finding out gender?: Most likely. We didn't find out with the last two, but I am DYING to get sewing for this little one and gender neutral fabric isn't all that cute!

Names yet?: Nope...we have a few in mind, but nothing that sticks out.

How are you feeling?: Pretty good. I'm finally pulling out of the exhausted phase! I've made dinner and skipped a nap over the past week. That's a huge improvement!

Cravings: I really want a donut. Other than that...I'm loving pickles - we canned homegrown ones last year and they are the best! I'm also loving laughing cow cheese wedges...such a yummy snack with whole grain crackers and fruit!

Adversions: Chicken & beef! Blech...I can't do it. I unless it is disguised well in something. But I still gag on it and have to choke it down.

What are you most excited about: Holding the baby, nursing. I'm also excited about the delivery. I LOVE labor, its such a spiritual experience for me.

What are you most nervous about: Complications that won't allow me to deliver naturally. I'm also afraid that my labor will be too quick and I won't make it in time. DD4 was born 4 minutes after we arrived at the hospital and we left 1hr after contrax started!

Anything else you want to add? One week until 2nd tri!! woohoo!!

Aversions: A lot of things actually. Mainly straight milk or creamy soups. Beans, red meat, eggs, hotdogs... I'm certain this list could never end.

What are you most excited about: Finding out the gender, feeling the baby kick, DS's reaction to having a baby in the house.

What are you most nervous about: DS starts kindergarten in Sept, I'm really dreading having to drive him to his school 20 mins away when I'm in my last trimester Sad I'm also really nervous about the birth itself, I almost had a c-section with DS and I do not want to have one this time either.

Anything else you want to add? 3 weeks until 2nd trimester!! EEK! Biggrin
