I hear ya! Though tbkittycat is right, it certainly seemed like I was showing a lot sooner the second time around! I was only about 10 weeks when I found out and I had to bust out the belly band because it was just too uncomfortable to button my pants!
Of course, my oldest was 3 and I didn't totally get back into shape from before. The funny thing was I was actually doing the Jillian Michaels 30 day shred and was about 2/3 of the way through the program and instead of noticing results, I noticed not being able to button my pants! I was really miffed, and of course, come to find out, I was prego.View Thread
First, you need to make sure you and your husband are on the same page - otherwise it will be a losing battle. There were many times where my MIL knew I would probably say no to something, so she asked DH first (who is a lot more easy going than me) and later on, DH would let me know, "oh MIL is doing such and such with the kids, I said it was okay." So, DH and I had a little talk after that happening a few too many times for my liking and he has to discuss with me before saying yes to something!
Anyway, after you have established that you and DH are on the same page. You BOTH need to sit down with MIL (or not, it doesn't have to be a formal meeting, keeping it as casual as possible can help lighten the mood) and explain that while you appreciate her making her home baby ready - it will be quite a few months before baby will be spending the night away from home without mom and/or dad and you would hate for her to inconvenience herself over a few baby items that can easily be transported when the time does come for baby to stay with grandma.
I won't go into a lot of specifics, but DH was an only child as well and MIL and FIL divorced when he was very young, so its pretty much been the two of them for a long time. She seemed to want to step in and play mommy to DS and I had to kind of step up and let her know that she was not mommy, she was grandma. While she wasn't exactly happy with it, I don't think DS stayed the night with her until he was almost 1, or at least pretty close to it. He may have stayed with her overnight for our anniversary at which point he would have been 10 months old.
In any event, you have to set clear boundaries and you need to do it sooner rather than later. Best wishes!! and Congrats!!!View Thread
You can try searching "pregnancy tracker" in your phone's app store.
Currently, I have a babycenter.com app (there is also a coordinating website). It gives little updates on what to expect each week and things like that and every week on the appropriate day you get a little reminder tell saying "your baby is now "x" weeks old!"
I would be giving your doc a call. I've never been on Depo, so I dont have any personal experience with it. Of course there is always a possibility of pregnancy when having unprotected intercourse. Good luck.View Thread
Hi there! Everyone is different, but with my last pregnancy I noticed that towards the end of the pregnancy, the baby wasn't moving around nearly as much as in earlier months. When I asked my doc, he said, well - the baby is a little cramped in there, so he doesn't really have as much room to move so that could be your case here.
I also noticed that in general, his active times tended to be when I was at rest. I worked a job where I was on my feet most of the time, so I guess you could say that I was "rocking" him all day, so of course he wasnt moving much then! But at night and in the evening, when I was just sitting down (or sleeping) the baby wasnt being "rocked to sleep" so he tended to be up and moving around.
I think as long as you are still feeling her move, then it shouldn't be a huge concern, but if you are really worried, then give your doc a call and see what he/she says.View Thread
Anytime you have unprotected sex, there is always a chance that you could become pregnant. And, whenever we suspect we might be pregnant, any and every little thing looks like it might be a sign or symptom of pregnancy.
Your best bet is to wait to see if you have missed your period, and if you do, then take a HPT first thing in the morning (the pregnancy hormones are more concentrated with your first morning pee). And then go from there.View Thread
I'm sorry, you are using so many abbreviations I'm finding it a little difficult to understand - but I think I got the point.
You took a few home pregnancy tests (HPT) and they said you were negative. You took one at work and it was negative, but you came back 10 min later and it was positive. No HPT should be read after 10 minutes - chances are that the positive you saw was false. Usually it will tell you this in the instuctions.
You then scheduled a blood test with your OBGYN and later that night you took another HPT, which also came out negative. And then, this morning you took 2 more HPT which both gave you 2 faint lines. It sounds like you might be pregnant, but you should know for sure after your appointment with your OB. Good luck.View Thread
