I wouldn't worry about not feeling pregnant yet, it is still early to have any symptoms. With our second baby, I didn't even begin to guess I was pregnant until about 6 weeks. I didn't have my period, but was under quite a bit of stress at the time so I chalked it up to that.
With this pregnancy, I "knew" I was pregnant about a week for my expected period. I would cry easily, nothing tasted good, and would get an upset stomach whenever I would eat. The further along I got, the more evident the symptoms got.View Thread
Has anyone else not found out what the gender of their baby is? I had my ultrasound on Valentine's Day, but I chose not to have the gender revealed. We didn't find out with DS, we did with DD, but I didn't want to know with this one.
My husband did want to know, so he has the ultrasound picture that shows the gender. He hasn't told anyone what it will be, not even his friends that live 800+ miles away. I have no doubt he will be able to keep it a secret the remainder of the pregnancy.View Thread
I understand your problem. It is such a sensitive subject and you don't want to do or say anything that would bring more hurt and pain to the situation. I'm sure even if the baby turns out to be a boy, your SIL will be so touched that you wanted to carry on her daughter's namesake. Is there a derivative of your niece's name that could be for a male? If so, you might be covered either way.
By the way, our kiddos are all the same ages. My son was born 6/05, my daughter was born 10/07, and my EDD with #3 is July 1.View Thread
Does anyone have any suggestions for a natural cough remedy? Every winter I come down with a nagging cough that lasts for weeks, and usually I can suppress it with various types of cough medicines. Being pregnant, I try very hard to avoid medications and was wondering if anyone had any ideas for a natural suppressant?
We did not find out the gender with our first (a son), but did with our second (a daughter), and will not again with number three. With our son I purchased a few outfits that were gender specific and returned the ones that were for a girl.
If you already have two sons, chances are you have the "stuff" (crib, cradle, pack-n-play, ect.) and would need a few updated items once the baby gets here. Could you wait until after the baby arrives to have the shower? It could be fun for the people you invite to me your new little person?View Thread
Be honest and open with your mom. Ask her what you can do to help ease her burden.
Do you plan on staying with your mom for a while? If so, I would probably talk about splitting expenses and what share of the rent/house payment, grocery, utilities bills would not only be fair but economical for you and your mother.View Thread
The quality, and what is shown in ultrasound pictures, all depends on the angle of the ultrasound and the angle of the baby. If you have concern, take the picture back to the doctor and ask them to interpret it for you.View Thread
