EDD: Oct 10
How far along are you: Almost 11 weeks
What pregnancy # is this: 2
Other children/ages: DS - will be 4 in April
What appts have you had?: Had my health history appt and an appt with my dr. to determine my due date - had an u/s at that appt.
When is your next appt?: April 5 we have our "12 week" appt and are doing the sequntial screen so another u/s!!!
How are you feeling, better, worse?: I'm not feeling horrible but worse than I did with DS. I get nauseous a lot more often but have only thrown up once. I never threw up with DS.
Favorite thing about pregnancy so far?: I don't mean this in a bad way but there really hasn't been anything yet. Once I start feeling and seeing the baby move that will be great. It's my absolute most favorite part.
Least favorite thing?: Waking to pee in the night
Will you find out gender? when?: Yes - we'll see if they have an idea a couple weeks. Otherwise in May at our 20 week appt.
What gender do you think/hope?: I have a feeling it's a girl and the baking soda test said girl but have no preference. There are pluses to both and negatives to neither.
Do you think you'll be early, late, or on time delivering?: I'll be a repeat c/s so it wil be scheduled a little bit early.
Cravings?: Not major cravings but things here and there. One night it was a cream filled sweet roll. Pepsi or coke and chocolate.
Adversions?: I'v found this pregnancy most ofent nothing sounds good. Usually everything sounds good - now nothing sounds good.
Anything else you want to add?: Just hoping for a healthy pregnancy and baby. It's something that's so easy to take for granted.

EDD: 10/13

How far along are you: 10 weeks couple days

What pregnancy # is this: 2

Other children/ages: Christopher 10 months in 2 days Smile

What appts have you had?: I've had an appt with a nurse for my pap and ultrasound, a few blood pressure check appts, a dating ultrasound, and 1 OB appt with an ultrasound

When is your next appt?: March 27th

How are you feeling, better, worse?: With this pregnancy I have had very minimal symptoms. I "feel" pregnant in my stomach area and my boobs, but no morning sickness. I thought I was having some, but after I stopped taking my blood pressure meds I realized the sickness I was having was side effects of the pills. The major thing I have in common with both pregnancies is fatigue. I go to bed at 7 everynight...if I can even make it that late lol

Favorite thing about pregnancy so far?: no morning sickness? Smile

Least favorite thing?: no morning sickness lol. To be honest it has made me SOO paranoid. And one thing that has been driving me nuts is people saying "every pregnancy is different" I want to say "Thanks but you saying that isn't going to make me feel any better. I'm still going to worry!"

Will you find out gender? when?: YES!! Either May 11th or 14th. They wont let me schedule until 18 weeks, but that will be on a saturday. So I will try to get an appt the friday before (the 11th) or the monday after (the 14th)

What gender do you think/hope?: We are hoping boy since the kids with be about 15 months apart. I would love for my son to have a little brother. But I am thinking girl just because my pregnancy is polar opposite from last time.

Do you think you'll be early, late, or on time delivering?: Last time I gave birth 3 weeks early and my son had to stay in the NICU for 10 days. So I am just hoping for as close to my due date as possible with out going over. I remember being miserable right before I had Christopher.

Cravings?: I have had a craving for 1 orange everyday for the past 3 weeks / month I would say. Plus for the past week I have craved doritos.

Aversions?: Mostly meats.

Anything else you want to add?: Just hoping for a healthy baby Smile

What pregnancy # is this:2

Other children/ages: Hailey Jean/ 18 months Smile

What appts have you had?: I had my initial intake appt with the nurse and the financial director. I love my dr office just because I know exactly how much I have to pay out of pocket after insurance by the time the baby is born. Makes me a lot less stressed lol I have also had my first ultrasound.

When is your next appt?: April 17th. Its a week later than it should be but Hailey and I will be back at my families for a weeks vacation the first week of april, my sister is having a baby next week so we will be down to see her therefore I can't schedule my appt for that week. Which I hate because it moves everything off a week Sad

How are you feeling, better, worse?: M/S wise i'm feeling a ton better, I get nauseous if I don't eat periodically but other than that my m/s is pretty well gone. As far as my emotions, they are worse. I'm crying a lot all the time for no reason.

Favorite thing about pregnancy so far?: so far my favorite things is the fact i'm pregnant but other than that i'm having a hard time getting pumped up about this one. Probably because its so different than my first.

Least favorite thing?: the m/s I had, the crying all the time, the fact that I feel fat ALL THE TIME, just the fact that I can't seem to get excited about it as much as I want to.
Will you find out gender? when?: Oh yes! Hopefully end of June early July ....as soon as possible Smile

What gender do you think/hope?: We are both thinking and hoping Boy. I think its a boy because i've been having boy dreams, and this pregnancy is so so different than my daughters.

Do you think you'll be early, late, or on time delivering?: I am a repeat c/s so I will be a week early. Actually my dr already told me we will deliver about the 10th. But i'm thinking I will try to schedule it for 12th so its a friday .

Cravings?: nothing really just all food.

Adversions?: I tried to eat BBQ the other day and it gives me heart burn. Nothing that i can't really see without getting sick or anything like that.

Anything else you want to add?: I can't wait till i'm out of the first trimester, hopefully my emotions regulate themselves and I feel normal again. Oh and My baby sister is having a baby on Tuesday (hopefully they are stripping her membranes on Monday) I'm so stinking excited!!!!!!!!!!!!
