Symptoms - Well still mostly the same except with the additon of the awful headaches!! uggggg... so gald I can still take tylenol although I try to hold out if I can. It looks like I am starting to show for real now and not just bloat. My belly isnt much bigger but its getting rounder and is there weather I have just eaten or not. I feel like I just look chubby not preggo lol.
other - my next OB appointment is next Thursday!! I will be in the 2nd trimester by then yea!! almost past the danger zone!! If all goes well I will feel pretty confident we are actually going to get through this one. I may even start buying things for the nursery

s/c: I get tired easily now when chasing my DS around, and my hips and sides hurt at night so I'm constantly having to roll from one side to the other to stay comfortable. Feeling lots of baby movement, loving it! Lots of heartburn. Not loving that. LOL
other: Definitely got the nesting bug, but trying to suppress it. We can't afford the extra organizational stuff I want to buy just yet!
Next d/a: Monday the 4th for a follow up u/s! Yay, more pictures!

Hello! I'm rejoining this board after learning last week we're expecting again! Cautiously optimistic...as always with pregnancies now. Our full story is in my member stories if anyone wants details. I've been off and on this board since 2008. Here's my first "Monday Update":
L & Baby 4 wks 3 days
WG: None that I know of.
Symptoms: Very tired! A little queasiness if I don't snack. Tender & tingly breasts. Feeling a little bloated but that could be because it's been 90 degrees in MI the last few days!
Other: On 400 mg progesterone daily since BFP on 5/23 which was day 26 of my cycle. Earliest BFP of my life! Hoping that's a good thing. 3 HCG beta draws: 5/24 (70.6), 5/26 (181), 5/28 (343). Moving to weekly draws, doc is happy with what we have so far. Next draw will be next Monday. 1st ultrasound will be scheduled when we hit 10,000 for HCG
Crossing our fingers!!!
Me (28), DH (30), DS-PAL Grad (16 months). 3 Angels-2008
s/c: everything still lol. I wake up several times a night to pee, my hips are starting to go out, I am still on modified bed rest which helped stop the contractions, but I have been having a lot of menstrual like cramps.
other: I made it past 36 weeks which was the goal, so anytime now I am ready to go! And Dr. will feel safe to deliver, so bring on the baby already!! lol. I am beyond ready. My hubby has signed in officially here at Fort Huachuca and has gone back to work It was nice having him around the last month, but he cant stay on leave forever. But his paperwork for paternity leave is ready!
next d/a: June 5th
