Quoting Mrs. Brightside:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Madi's*Mama:</b>" Congrats! I'm jealous lol I changed my degree ... [snip!] ... start work as a nurse and also slow down a bit in school! Lol. This week I was at school for 43 hours. Soo long and draining"



Wow that's intense! I don't miss school at all. In Oregon you are required to get your master's degree within a certain time frame as a teacher and I knew that if I took a break from school I would never want to go back, ha. So I found the shortest program possible and powered through. I really admire the people who put in all the years at school for their careers - that's no piece of cake!!!

Is anyone else having the irrational fear that you will show up at your first appointment and somehow find out you're not even pregnant at all?? I'm so nervous about that for some reason!

Haha I've thought about that... I'm hoping 2 immediately very dark pos tests wouldn't lie lol. I'm dying for an US :( I think I'm going to end up paying the 60 to get one done.

Haha.....yeah the positive tests, nausea, growing/sore b**bs, super nose, etc......you'd think I'd be confident in knowing I'm pregnant but somehow I still doubt it. I need the proof of an ultrasound!! I would definitely pay for one if I wasn't already going to get one soon just for my own piece of mind, haha.

I'm trying to be patient, I called the welfare office quite a few times todaytoday, but it was either busy or I got through and then it said it's too busy, try again later. And now its closed for the weekend :(

I'm 8 weeks and my feet are already a little swollen :shock: Should I be worrying about this? I had no high BP issues with my first (if anything my BP was low) and my BP is usually just normal..

Yes! I took ANOTHER test yesterday just to make sure it was still positive. I haven't found the heartbeat with my doppler yet so, I'm not gonna lie, I'm getting a tiny bit concerned. Hopefully it's just a tad too early.

I was! When I had my ultrasound last week I was like "Oh wow! I really am pregnant!"



Even still though, I do not at ALL feel pregnant.

My fatigue is starting to go away a little. Definitely not back to normal, but getting there! Thank God!

With my fist my BP didn't start going up until after 30weeks. But with my second it was high from 9weeks on. And this one it was up a little my first appointment at 4weeks but at 7weeks it was fine. So I am hoping it is fine my next appointment and that it was just nerves the first time.

With my first I went to my family Dr. to be sure I was pregnant because I wanted to tell people.

I'm hoping to have that moment at my appointment! I want it to feel real for me....but that might not happen until I can feel movement or at least start truly showing. Right now it's all just bloat but I am actually needing to rubber band my jeans together at the waist because they are uncomfortable. Lol.



I just keep feeling afraid that either I will find out I was never pregnant at all, or that I lost the baby but didn't know it. Yikes! I just really want to go in and see the baby moving around and hopefully let things sink in a little bit......
