Hey ladies just wanted to let you know about the fantastic pregnancy book I bought. 'Im Pregnant!' by Lesley Regan is so imformative! She is straightforward and gives week by week information on how your baby is growing, how your body is changing and your emotional response. I find it comforting to know you are gtting in depth factual information over a wide array of subjects; breastfeeding, exercise, nutrition, care after birth, the list is endless! I would HIGHLY recommend this book!
I had originally got 'What to Expect WHen Youre Expecting' and threw it away!! It was alarmist and condescending! The cutesy language and puns really irked me as well, I prefer to be spoken to in an intelligent fashion. If you want to hear about all that can go wrong and what you arent 'supposed' to do then I say read this book but if you want a book that gives you factual information about this wonderful journey, 'Im Pregnant' cant be beat.. Hope this helps, I wish someone would have told me sooner!!View Thread
Actually there are things that tip off pregnancy with a pelvic exam. He should be able to feel your uterus, it should be the size of a grapefruit now. Also the appearance of your cervix, the color of your tissue down there. There should be very obvious signs of pregnancy down there.
I agree its weird he didnt do anything else though. Had he already confirmed your pregnancy with a urine sample? If not he should have.View Thread
The Good: Im starting to feel a little better, not quite so fatigued. Also they caught the dipsh!t who robbed my house and hes facing felony charges! Now if only the police can track down all the jewelry he stole.
The Bad: DF's little brother has been diagnosed with testicular cancer (hes 11) and he goes on Friday to see if its spread anywhere else and to have the testicle removed. Also DF's mom is back to being pushy and overbearing. gahView Thread
I was on BC and never missed a day or took antibiotics so this baby was just meant to be I guess! lol
My periods were very normal and my first tip off to pregnancy was the fact that it was 2 days late. My boobs were sore and heavy but felt like they did every time before my period. I tested and was positive.
