can you fit a February momma in there?  2/14 DD?  :)

Thanks, Bier! Yes Vanessa please join us!!!! My sister-in-law is also expecting a vday baby... her 4th. She has 3 boys and is hoping to have a girl this time :)

I think my due date will be ~April 15 but will need to confirm w/ my doctor. I am 4 weeks and 4 days today based on a chart online. YAY!

Vanessa, we have been discussing what to do with you ladies due in January/February. We may fit you in on the October/November/December thread, here or on a separate topic. Once we figure it out, we'll let you know. Until then, I've added you to the list!

April_bride, congratulations! I'll add you to the list with April 15th as your due date and can change it if needed!

WooHoo! :) Hey guys! Sarah here...happily pregnant 1st dr appt is 8-18 and due (by my calculations) April 7th 2011! I am 5 weeks tomorrow! :)

Congrads vanessa! How exciting, a vday baby!

Good to see ya April. Did you make that dr appt yet??

cool!  Thanks :)  i'm so glad i'll be able to have pregnant freinds here again!!

 

wow aprilbride-  4?  I coudn't imagine.  Lots of love (and tears) in that house!

I know. It was an unplanned pregnancy (she is older than I am, and I am 37) but they are very excited. I know she reallly wants a boy, hehe!

Sarah - not yet but plan on calling today. :) I am going to ask my doc when they want to see me due to my age and history. I am hoping they'll want me in around 6 weeks to do early ultrasounds and make sure everything looks good.

So far I have very few symptoms. My biggest one is the crazy dreams!! Like - CRAZY dreams! Some very mild queasy-ness and a full feeling in my tummy and bbs. My bras already are almost not fitting. ALREADY! My back pain did go away, thank goodness. I am wondering if that was around implantation - I had the strong back pain, and tugging/pulling in my abdomen - both on the lower right side of my body, for about 2-3 days. Then it stopped.

April, Glad you are calling today! I can't wait to go...I am sure you are the same way. Dreams? Really? I have heard that happens, but don't know anyone it has happened to. I am glad that your back pain is gone now.

My belly is soo full feeling today! I feel like I am super bloated...my pants even feel tight. I wear scrubs, so you know that they aren't tight! Haha... I still get that tugging everynow and again. Mine is lower right too! :) I think I told you that though.

Everyone have a great day! Gotta get back to work :(

This online thingy predicts my due date to be 4/7/2011.

I have always wondered how we are further along in terms of our babies' gestational age vs. the date of conception (ie, I know I conceived around 7/16-7/19 but the calculator says I am 4 wks, 4 days today). So here is what I found when I put in my last menstrual period and the length of my cycles:

Your pregnancy begins at conception. (Fri, July 16th ,2010) Your due date is 266 days (38 weeks) later. (Thu, April 7th ,2011) We will use the more popular numbering, starting 14 days before your conception. According to this, you are already 2 weeks pregnant at the time of conception, making your total pregnancy last 40 weeks, or 280 days.

Here's the site I used - FYI: http://www.pregnology.com/due-date.php

April bride: I just saw your name in that topic. I'm so happy for you!!!! I'm sure you will have a beautiful and wonderful baby! Enjoy your pregnancy!!!

Naturally, all the same to the other future moms in here!

April: My doctor (and I believe this is true for most doctors) simply counted 40 weeks ahead from the first day of my last period to calculate my due date. When I plugged my numbers from the pregnancy of my second child into that calculator, it gave me a due date of October 15th and my doctor predicted October 14th so it's pretty darn close!

OK so my dd for now is April 7 then.

Sarah - I left a voice mail for my Dr. office a couple of hours ago, no reply yet. They are so hard to get into! Hopefully they'll call me back today so I'll at least know when my first appt will be. I suspect the receptionist needs to talk to my Dr. about my history before she calls me back to say when they want me in.

Sarah et al - my first Dr. appt is this Friday (August 6). I was surprised they want me in that early but she said they want to do some bloodwork. I expect she will be monitoring my hormone levels. I will keep you all posted on the results!

Oooooh, I want to join too!   My due date is around Feb. 25th and I have my first real Drs appointment on Wednesday.  I had an initial prenatal visit with an RN to get my labwork done but I am excited for Wed. and the ultrasound.  This is my second and my wonderful daughter turned one last month!  I am so excited to follow all of your journeys.

Hello!  I'd like to join as well.  My due date is March 16, and this will be my first child. :-)  My first doctors appt isn't until August 17, and I'll be 10 weeks.  I can't wait! 

welcome, roo and averenee!! We have several first time mamas among us and a couple second time mamas too. Very cool. Nice to "meet" you :)

Amy

April_Bride! I was so elated to see your post, congratulations! I have kept you in my thoughts and prayers...... So very very happy for you. A happy very healthy pregnancy for you! :) Congrats to the rest of you as well, be healthy!

April: That's awesome that we both have the same due date! I will let you know if the Dr. changes mine. I am glad that you are getting to see the dr, can't believe it is soo fast! :)

Welcome Roo! :) I love having people to chat with about what is going on with us! It is so awesome, especially for those of us who aren't telling people just yet. It is a great vent!!

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
