I am just wondering if anyone else has been suffering with Migraines? I never had them until I had my youngest son, and even then, I would only get them once every couple of months. Since I have found out I am pregnant, I have had 2 in 1 week! It is just miserable trying to work and deal with migraines and nausea, and my crazy hormones that make me want to cry all day. This is not fun at all!
I am trying to keep my pregnancy quiet around the office until I am at least 12 weeks, but all this sickness is causing people to ask me a bunch of questions. I am kind of worried they wont hire me on permanently (I am a temp but they have said they plan on hiring me permanent soon) if they find out I am pregnant before the hire date. :(
I have so many emotions right now...this is so stressful!
But on a positive note, I am going to the doctor today! Hopefully they will do an ultrasound or try to hear the heartbeat or something! :)

Good morning ladies! I'm doing pretty good so far, but I am kind of thinking I'll end up with GD again, as I had pancakes for breakfast, and it kind of made me queasy until I had some protein. Guess I just need to deal with the fact that I can't really have a carb heavy breakfast anymore. :D



For the C/S mommies, if you really want to try for a VBAC, I'd recommend looking for a Dr who will agree to a trial of labor. I know with a lot of Drs it depends a lot on the cause for your first c/s. I've had both my babies via section, (the first got stuck, and I planned a repeat with the second, but she was breech, so it would have been section anyway) I plan on planning another section this go round. My Dr was willing to let me try for a VBAC, with the last one, but I decided not to. Also, the overweight thing I think is bologna! I'm 5'3", and weighed 220 when my last one was born. Anyway, I hope you're able to find someone willing to allow VBACs for you!

Quoting CLC 7 weeks:" <blockquote><b>Quoting LindseyLou+1.5:</b>" IVF favors boys :)"</blockquote> Why is that? They injected the sperm into the eggs so its a little different."


I don't know the science behind it... I've read it somewhere on the internet and Amelia from our other thread mentioned it at some point.

Oh brother... please help me! I've been up for an hour and a half and I'm dead tired already. I've done laundry, dishes, made beds, went to starbucks for DH. DS school is closed today so I'm entertaining a 5 year old all day on top of my first prenatal appointment. Yikes... it's gonna be a long day.

My aunt did three rounds of IVF and had two girls and one boy. My other aunt had three girls and one boy.



I think the reasons boys are more common is because in IVF they pick the fastest swimmers and usually the male sperm is the "better" swimmer choice.

Oh goodness I just indulged in my second real good craving. Gluten free chocolatechip pancakes and a cold brew coffee. And I got some awesome mom points for the sweet pancakes. I havent drank any coffee since finding out but gosh this morning I wanted a cup sooo bad. One cup of coffee once in awhile isnt the worst thing in the world.

There was no swimming bc they injected the sperm into the egg.

I wouldn't mind multiples myself! But one is all it takes right? :-) I am sure that little bean cost a lot to get even this far! It's such a miracle! I think my mom wouldn't really care about multiples if we had more money growing up. She was 15 when she got pregnant with me so by the time she wanted more she was only 20 years old and her and my Dad didn't have much. One was pushing the bills as it was. Oh well, all happens for a reason right?

The male sperm deposit gets put into a petry dish. The best swimmers in the dish get picked.

I had my first prenatal appointment today! It was pretty uneventful. I saw a midwife. She wants me to see an OB from this point on because of my history (ectopic) and fertility treatments. She did an in office ultrasound --- yep! That makes 3 weeks in a row I got to see my jelly bean :) We actually got to hear the HB this time :) :) :) It was beating away at 180 bpm!

I met a midwife and expected a nice little chat about pregnancy stuff. Ended up crying in her office about what the first birth did to my body. Had to be addressed sometime, but I really unloaded. Hormonal me.

Thats a good thing! Things like that can hold progress back during pregnancy and birth I hope you get that healing birth you want!
My public bone broke during labor and I wasnt on drugs I left everything but my midwife and nurses had be pushing in this stupid butterfly pose and they kept yelling push push pusssshhhh at me and I pushed her too hard out and tore the tendons that hold you public bone together. It was awful thats why this time Im hoping I can birth at home.
