Hello! I'm Dawn, 29 (for now - I'll be the big 3-OH! on April 16th), and I found out last week that I'm pregnant with our third child. Dh and I are very lucky when it comes to the "getting pregnant" thing, and have gotten pregnant the first cycle off of BCP's all three times we've attempted. We currently have a DS, Brendan who will be 4 in April, and a DD, Halle, who will turn two in March.
I'm a member of the Nov. boards, and love the ladies over there!! I thought I'd start this journal to keep up with the happenings of my pregnancy, and also because everybody always says the more kids you have the less you "do" for each child, so here's what I'm "doing" for our third that I didn't do for the first two!
I'm 5 weeks today - I've been feeling very good. I'm tired, and am peeing alot, and also feel pukey off and on if I don't keep my stomach happy. I have been experiencing some cramping low down off and on for the last week or so, and I have to admit, it's making me nervous. I didn't experience this to this extent with either of my other two pregancies, and while the doctor assured me all is normal, I just wish it would stop! I've had no bleeding or spotting, whatsoever, even after my pap on Monday, so I'm sure all is ok, but it is still a bit strange. The one other strange thing I'm finding with this pregnancy, is even though I'm not very far along, when I lay on my tummy I can feel the "bump" down low. My uterus is probably just larger after carrying two large babies, but it's still crazy to be able to feel something there so early.
Whew - this turned into quite the entry! I will be MIA for the next week or so as I'm flying to Hawaii on Friday for work (YAY!!!). I'll be back with an update next week!
