I'm sitting here at my desk, munching crackers and sipping ginger ale. (Somebody in the office next door decided to pull all the rotten food out of the staff refrigerator.... its not doing good things for me) Hopefully I'm not getting too many crumbs in my keyboard. It is 15 minutes until lunch, though! (Eastern time) While I'm still in love with weekends as much as I always was, I now count time between appointments where I hope I will get an u/s! Just 18 days to go!

hey girls - just pulled sick card (heheheh) - will be taking off shortly but wanted to say hi... just curious, D, Robyn, and stephanie - how far along is everyone again? i think being pregnant is making me dumb because we've probably all said how far along we are about a million times...

 

Robyn - March 29

LOL, but its a good excuse. Blame the absent mindness on the pregnancy...I do! LOL Im in my 10th week on wednesday! YAY ME and I am totally scarfin popcorn right now as we speak. Next closest saltiest thing to peperoni stix...lol. Tastey...lol, hey you go girl! Go home and take a nap for all of us! I pulled my sick card the week before last and I am gonna be pullin an Im moving card here soon and take two days off! YAY ME!

I've been using the pregnancy excuse for my pathetic memory too, Robyn! The only problem with me is, the absent -mindedness started when I was about 10 years old. My mom had me fold the laundry - I folded it nicely, then came to reality just as I was putting the nice clean stack of dad's white t-shirts in the kitchen garbage can! -------- rb - I'm in the 11th week. I feel like I must be the most boring person on the site, because it seems like I'm telling the same symptoms, etc etc over and over again on every thread! So far, I've just figured that if I don't recognize the name (ha ha! with a memory like mine...) that they are new here, and if I can help relieve their stress by repeating my experiences, so be it. -------- I don't think anyone here would believe me if I told them I was sick... I've come in looking like I've been run over by a truck the last month, and this week IS a bit better!

yeah - i fully intend to go home and rest, but what will probably end up happening is i will end up shopping - it's quite inevitable with me... i'm need help, really...just had about a million crackers and a peppermint tea... i will also probably seek out some sort of mexican food today since i have thought of nothing else since you guys were talking about it yesterday. oh yeah - i just checked americanbaby.com and it said that starting today i am in week 12!!! i guess they count forward from the day of your last period - which is weird since i thought we conceived 1-2 wks after that... but what do i know.. week 12 tho!!! i haven't let myself get too excited thus far, but you'd better believe that once i get to week 13 / 14, it WILL be a national holiday, and there WILL be a round of pepperoni stix.. on me of course...here's a ? - how's your bf/dh with the pregnancy thing? mines been pretty good - and he gets so excited... he suggested we go shopping for baby stuff this weekend which i said no since it's too early... but i have been wanting to buy a little tiny pair of baby socks and shoes...they're just too d__n cute... but at the rate i'm growing, i may have to buy two pairs of each... i don't get an u/s i don't think till my 4th month - i don't know why they do it so late up here!!! so i guess i won't know!??

 

Robyn - March 29

My boyfriend is so extremely excited but he doesnt understand the pregnat partof it....thats always fun, but whatever. Feed me and let me sleep and we will get along just fine...lol. I havent bought anything ('cept fat pants...cried in the dressing room) and my boyfriends mom has already gone out to start buying 2 of everything since we're having two little peanuts. I swear she has been stocking up or something like she has a bomb shelter full of baby socks...I went to the store with her and looked in the back seat of her car and oh man...socks like you wouldnt believe...tee hee hee, doesnt look like I am going to have to buy anything for these peanuts...between her and my mother man they are battling to the death about who can buy more stuff. I was like LADIES! Im only 10 weeks....lets take it down a notch...lol. No one listens to me. Tee hee.

 

rb - March 29

well it's good to know they're excited.. there are some ppl on this site that have been fighting with their bf's parents / inlaws and i feel so awful for them... it's gotta suck to have to deal with other ppl's sh*t when you shouldn't be stressed out right now... as for us, i've not allowed any shopping yet - you know what's just occured to me... nobody's gonna buy US presents anymore... just baby stuff because i guess it takes the pressure off us having to buy it... but still, a girl likes her presents... hubby saw me watching an episode of SITC (i know, i'm a geek), but there was a silver baby rattle on there from Tiffany's - he wants to buy it... i suggested something else from Tiffany's, like a new tennis bracelet... and he laughed like i was joking - i was not joking, my friend....

 

Stephanie - March 29

Hey guys and good morning from California... I'm not feeling so hot though. I feel so sad today and all I really want to do is cry :o( I'm still spotting from last Sunday and cramping comes and goes. I'm scared too bc I don't know whats happeninng. This is different from my last two misses soooooo....... I don't know but when I saw the Dr. 3 weeks ago he told me this was normal then it stopped but the cramps stayed now Im spotting again.. What do you think?? I don't want to call the Dr. bc I know that there is nothing he can do if something happens. I feel that the baby is still okay too I can feel the baby growing. Okay this is gross but when I cleaned out the colored discharge this morning I did'nt feel the cervix...... I mean that area is now deeper. Does any of this make sense?? I need some really good advice right now.

 

Robyn - March 29

I can feel ya on the cramping. I have a lot of it going on also and my doc said its normal because your uterus is growing and stretching beyond its normal maximum capacity. I mean it makes sense when you think about it, lol you have a small human in your belly. The spotting I have heard alot about but have not experienced myself. I have, however, seen it mentioned repetedly on this site so it cant be all that uncommon when 50 % of the women on here experience it. You should be fine, I would just call your doc and double check if youre really worried. Im sorry youre not feeling well today. I am more tired than anything. This to shall pa__s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! rb- what is SITC? Dont feel dweeby, I am sure we all have our embara__sing secrets that we feel cla__sify us as dweebish...lol. And yeah I am happy my boyfriend is happy, still fighting with his other extended family though. They bug me...everyone bugs me right about now though. Bug bug bug bug bug....d__n where is my hose when I need it? Crazy stuff man...I wish my man would buy me some stuff. I want some presents too....not greedy just rather be spoiled before peanut #1 and peanut #2 get here ya know?! Wheres my romance? So what if I am fat and moody...give me some romance and mybe you will get something outta it...ha ha ha ha. Bribery...I love it.

 

Stephanie - March 29

Thanks for the advise although I am still very scared. On Sunday it had a small amount of red to it and that's what scared me the most. I'm gonna call my Dr. the next time I spot bc I am super freaked out about this and I'm already so in love with my baby I can't afford to loose this one. My hearts already cracking

 

Robyn - March 29

Try not to stress, thats probably the worst thing you can do right about now. I know thats really dumb advice, like you can help it right? But seriously try to get your mind off of it and somewhere else. Doesnt your doc have a nurse line or something you can call so you can at least get a little reasurance? I know your will feel instantly better hearing a professional tell you that youre fine! We're here for you though!

 

Stephanie - March 29

Your right I should keep myself busy right now bc my cramps have gotten stronger since I cried and I'm probably bringing them on. Im so glad I can talk to you guys bc it really does help.....Thanx

 

rb - March 29

stephanie - you have to calm down because it makes you worry more... if you would feel better about calling your dr., do it right away - that's what they're there for....i wouldn't worry about the cramping too much - i get that a lot as well... as for the spotting, it seems so common on here like Robyn says... try to take a deep breath and don't let your heart do anything just yet.. is there any way you can leave work today? i think you need to get into another headspace or else you'll worry yourself silly...like i said... if it will make you feel better - call... i'm one of those ppl who have to be comforted by someone other than myself, so i would personally give them a call... try not to worry to much and hang in there! we'll be here for you.... Robyn - SITC - S_x in the city... i am addicted to it... well ladies, i'm taking off for the day but will try to check in in a bit... Stephanie, you and baby are in my heart... don't worry - you'll be marvelous as always!!

 

rb - March 29

I just called my Dr.s office and they want to see me today @ 1:30 I know the nurse can't give any info but it kinda makes me even more scared that I have to go in. This reminds me of the miscarriage I found out about through u/s. The tech would'nt tell me anything and I wondered why her looks were so puzzled and now this nurse could'nt say anything. I can't wait to see the Dr. and to hear the lil ones heartbeat. This will make me so so so very happy

 

steph - March 29

Sorry rb I put your name in the above box and I was writing to you so I put your name. :o)

 

Robyn - March 29

I agree I think you should take the day off. Your work obviously knows that your preggers so tell someone the situation and there is no way they would argue with you. Go home take a nice (luke warm and not to long...lol sounds real nice eh) bath and then get into your most comfy jammies and curl up in bed or on the couch and watch a good flick. Youre fave movie or even rent one. Pay Per View is my new best friend when I cant move off the couch lol. It you do what you can to be comfy and then take your mind off of it as much as you can you should be fine. Stress is the worst, I know how ya feel though. I had to put myself in a different mind set recently too and its not easy. I might have cervical cancer and they cant do any tests or anything until after the pregnancy. I found out about it and then by the time my next appointment came around to get some tests done they found out I was preggers. Nice timing eh? I hate to be a downer but more often than not things happen for a reason. I think right now though your body is telling you WOAH....chill there lady! Put your feet up and just chill. Dont ever ignore what your body is telling you. You hurt...take care of yourself. Try not to have any worries though, youre gonna be fine! As for you rb...HA if youre calling yourself nerdy for being a s_x in the city addict we are in the same boat! I love....LOVE that show. I used to watch it all the time until I moved and didnt have HBO to watch it anymore. I am totally on the way to getting them on DVD though...tee hee hee. I missed all of the last two seasons....I am having withdrawls and need a fix...lol
