CONGRATS! How did the delivery go? How is your LO? You must be in heaven right now! What's her name? My little girls name is Emma.
I'm feeling better, I think the feeling of sadness/emptiness is because I lost a little boy six years ago. I came home from the hospital without him. I remember looking in the mirrior at my body, no longer pregnant, and feeling this huge void and emptiness because he was gone. I think thats why I have felt a little off this time, just lingering feelings of loss.
We are wanting more. Emma is almost 4 months, and we aren't doing anything to stop pregnancy. We have gone back and forth on what to do and we decided that we are just going t leave it up to God and if we conceive again soon, then we'd be happy. I find myself already paying attention to CM and ovulation. I think I will always want to be pregnant. lol.
But enough about my sob story.. I hope you are well! I know it was a long time coming for you! Congrats again and I'd love to hear how it's going!View Thread
I know I'm not pregnant anymore, so why am I posting? Well, because it's about pregnancy. I have just been feeling so odd lately. I'm not sad or depressed... I just feel... empty. Like I'm missing something. I love my little angels, but I feel empty now that I'm not pregnant. Like I said, I'm not sad or anything, so happy with my new LO.. but I miss being pregnant and knowing that there is a little life inside of me. I didn't feel this way with my other DD. This is so weird and I feel kinda crazy! I feel like I want to TTC, when she's only 3 months old!! What is wrong with me?!View Thread
Oh my gosh!! CONGRATS!!!! So happy for you! Girls are so much fun!! Sorry about the tear! Hopefully next time around it won't be so bad! So glad to know your LO is healthy and happy! Love the name and am so happy for you!!View Thread
Hey! Wow! Already almost out of the first trimester! That's amazing! How are you feeling? Are you showing yet? Wearing maternity clothes? Who have you told you are expecting? How did they react to the news?
Sorry so many questions, I just know that this is such a huge deal for you and your DH!!
I was actually kinda sad to not really be pregnant, but I know it would have been very stressful to deal with at this point with me working and my DH working all the time! I still am excited about having another one, God willing, when the time is right.
Brooke LOVES her little sister. She has never been jealous at all, which is something I worried about - her being an only child for so long. (she's four and a half). But she just dotes on her and tells her how much she loves her. It is so cute. She also helps me go get things that I need when I ask her too. I was always sad that Brooke was getting older and didn't have another sibling but now that it's all worked out, I love the age difference. Brooke is also at this point pretty indpendent. It's a nice age gap.
I'm OH so happy for you!! I LOVE hearing the heartbeat! So fun!!! I started feeling better around 11 weeks, so not far away from where you are now. I didn't feel bad till 6 weeks, either. Are you just jumping for joy at this point? Over the moon exctied beyond belief??
I'm not pregnant afterall! A big relief! We were going to be happy and everything, but whew! That would have been nuts! My symptoms were caused my another hormonal imbalance I'm dealing with - and the tests, well, the tests were positive - but they were cheapo .25 cent ones from offline that I bought along time ago - must have expired. lol. So funny. We are waiting until Emma is nine months, then we are going to try again.
Emma is doing great. She is "talking" all the time now. Really cooing up a storm. She's a pretty easy going baby and just fusses when she's tired or hungry. She is so beautiul. My daughter has my big brown eyes, and we are thinking Emma might end up with my husbands beautiful blue eyes, since her's are alot lighter than my DD's were. We will just see! Life is great for us right now! Only sad thing is I go back to work in two weeks. Emma is 10 weeks old today!View Thread
Well, it took 16 mos to conceive Emma, so when we talked about having more kids we decided we would leave it up to God and see what happens. We figured we would get pregnant in a year or two. Well, today I took three pregnancy tests and they were all positive. They were the very early result ones, and I know it's still very early, and anything can happen. We are happy, but shocked, and cautious. I went in to have lab drawn to confirm and check levels. We did the "babydance" at 4 weeks after delivering and Emma is 6 weeks and two days old today. I was having symptoms similar to when I was first pregnant with Emma. I was doubtful and just took a test on a whim. Well, I was so shocked to see a positive. I was actually shaking, lol. We are still happy that our family is growing, but we are cautious as it is still early and my body is also still recovering from Emma! Will post with lab results on Monday.View Thread
Being a mom is hands down, no contest, the best job in the world.
So glad everything is going well!! It must have been so nice to see your LO! I bet you can't wait to see him/her! That's my favorite part of having a newborn, the snuggling. Have fun decorating the nursery! I bet it will be so cute when it's done!
My friend had trouble gaining weight with her pregnancy too (ended up gaining 23 lbs) and so she added a "donut tuesday" where she'd get a coke and a donut, when she didn't usually eat stuff like that. It's not healthy though and not exactly substaintal - lol. I ended up gaining exactly 25lbs. I never got that big, but my little girl is a little healthy chunk! I was so happy! (She weighed 8 lbs even). With the twenty five pounds that I gained, it was practically and literally almost all baby. I only have a few pounds to lose to get to prepregnancy weight.
I'm so happy for you! I will continue to wonder about you and look forward to hearing your birth story in a few months!!View Thread
