Quoting LoveMyBubbaBoy:" Actually no for some weird reason. lol. Also my ds sat and only ever kicked on my right side... This ... [snip!] ... lo is on the left side (judging by the hb and where I feel pokes... :)) So nothing can be easier the second time for me. lol."


oh true! yeah, i'm having issues at times laying on my belly. i'm assuming it's where the baby is laying that makes it difficult. but it feels uncomfortable. ;[ horrible headaches too. my "morning sickness" hasn't faded either.



any suggestions on prenatals? The smaples my dr gave me are all HUGE HUGE HUGE pills. Ever since I had my tonsils removed as a teen, I cannot swallow pills. So I need to find a smaller pill for a prenatal.

My prenatals are over an inch long. lol. They are HUGE... I've been taking them since August of 2010 though. lol. So I'm use to it now. I got pregnant with DS then and took them while bfing and that was the new prescription I got this time again. So I don't know much about the world of vitamins because I tolerate the huge DHA ones well. :/

lucky. ;[ my insurance won't cover the "mini" one there is. so i guess my next step is heading to walmart and asking if they know of any i can make into a liquid, any chewabes, or anything small. lol.. the gummies make me gag now.

You can take Flinstones vitamin's. I told my dr how sick pre pills make me and he suggested that. He said take 2 of the iron ones.

Quoting GlamChic:" How is everyone doing weight wise? I lost 10 pounds in the beginning and have remained that weight so I haven't gained a pound. Which I'm very happy about and wish it could remain this way LOL!"

I am still at my PP weight. I gain/lose 1-2lbs here and there. but nothing major. even with that, I cant fit into my pre pregnancy pants anymore.

Quoting katxo[12wks]:" I feel like I felt a flutter this morning. But it was higher than where I normally find the heartbeat so I just don't know. I'm going to leave it to being gas lol"


last night, I woke up and had a sip of ice cold water, I laid back down and felt a little flip just below my belly button, to the right of where they find the heartbeat. if it's gas, a fart usually follows, haha!! but it was so not gas!! i swear it was baby!!! two weeks earlier than I felt my second and 6 weeks earlier than my first, so i am skeptical, too. but who knows.

am I horrible for not ever taking prenatals?? I have had HG with all three so far, so I never bothered with them, this time around it is not so bad, but I hate taking such huge horse pills! I just don't take them at all.
How is everyone else's morning sickness??
I thought mine was going away but the past few days it is coming back again and I hate it!! It usually fades at 12-14 weeks, so hopefully within a couple weeks it's gone. I hate constantly feeling like i am going to vomit. I am so over that!

My m/s pops up at the worst times! I was starving tonight so I ate dinner like there was nothing wrong and BOOM 5 min's later sicker then a dog! I didn't have any m/s with my other pregnancies so I guess b/c this is my last baby he/she has to lay everything on thick, lol!

Quoting Daesey:" Nope, don't worry about that --- I think I take the title on the oldest one here. Sigh.... I'm 38. Will be 39 in a few wks (March 4th). Yup, 39 and having my first baby. I feel sick now... lol"


I'm right behind you - 36 now but I'll turn 37 a month or so before my LO arrives. I don't feel old, so it doesn't bother me at all. Plus, I have more friends having babies now than at any time in my 20's or early 30's, so we'll all just be old parents together. :wink: haha



Sorry, I've been doing a bit of lurking, but to catch up...
I've gained 10-15 lbs so far. I gained 50 with my dd, but I was actually kind of trying to. This time I'm not, so I hope I can keep it under 40, but we'll see. It all came off the first time and I was fairly thin to start with so it's nbd really.



I can't remember if I already posted this or not, but I had my first trimester screening on Monday. Everything looks great and there's a very, very low risk for Down Syndrome or Trisomy 13/18, so that's exciting. I had the option of taking the DS blood test (maybe because I'm over 35?) and I went for it just to be sure. Plus it's a dna test, so I'll find out the gender for sure without the guesswork of an u/s. I should get those results in a week or two, and I'm excited but part of me isn't ready to know yet. Idk why. I'm hoping for another girl, dh wants a boy but expects a girl, dd doesn't care whether she gets a brother or a sister.



Oh, and I've had some flutters for about two weeks now, but over the past couple of days I've started feeling little tickles, like teeny tiny kicks. Love it.

Hey ladies! ultrasound monday ! still super excited!. And as far as the weight question, I've gained about 3-5 lbs. Currently at 115.5. I get a HUGE belly soon though. Usually gain about 35 lbs all together..
l have been feeling the baby move a lot today! I * think * l even felt a tiny Kick from the outside!. I Know I'm probably crazy, but I swear I felt it when I was checking the heartbeat earlier! :)

I have HG as well. I had it with my daughter and now have it again. It's debilitating and very depressing. I started home health care two weeks ago and have a zofran pump. it's a God send. I've only been sick once since I've had it. But I have to poke myself with a needle in my stomach everyday to change the site
