@PurplePumps: my nausea comes in waves, so I’ll have a good day and a bad day and on the good days I freak out. I’m telling myself I’m fine, it’s just my body getting used to having a passenger.

@Ms.Mermaid: That's good to know. It hit me last week and hadnt stopped so it was really weird this morning to eat and then feel normal. I kinda liked feeling sick, made me feel like something is going on.

@PurplePumps: Confession: I have been lurking on the IVF board for the past couple of years and am so stinking excited to see you here. I can only imagine how scary this stage of pregnancy is for you, but I am so hopeful for you! As far as symptoms go, mine totally come and go. This past week, I felt so great and was actually going on walks and this weekend I am back to morning sickness.

@PurplePumps: Congrats! Welcome. Today is the first day in a week I haven't felt sick, it is weird and nice. Still so tired though.
I feel like I'm looking 3-4 months preggo by the end of the day. It is going to be hard to hide this long at this rate.
Had my first appointment today! Heartbeat was good and dating matched what I suspected, so my due date is staying the same. Overall happy with how everything went, but now I’m nervous about needing to tell all of our parents, not sure why.

@coopsmama: congratulations! I just joined the October board, but its so very early and I'm feeling pessimistic. Hope your 1 1/12 year old (!!!) is doing well

@Silva: Congrats to you, too! sorry about the pessimism! I hope you feel better about it, soon. I saw your post on the October board and I know you said your symptoms are minimal at this point. Mine were super minimal early on this time, too, but now at 8w3d I'm nauseous nearly every second of every single day. I know symptoms aren't always fun but I hope you get some soon to reassure yourself - and I hope you have a very happy and healthy nine months on your way to baby 3!
The nausea, y'all... 🤢 so so bad the last few days. I just want to climb into bed and sleep to be able to escape it for a bit!

The big "we are pregnant" announcement was this weekend at my son's second birthday party. We kept the party to close friends and family only. It was really nice to tell everyone that I am close with. Everyone was excited for us. I was nervous to tell one of our close friends as they just announced their pregnancy and I thought they would feel we were stealing their thunder. But, I should have never doubted them or their friendship. After a few sarcastic jokes that we were copycats, etc... they couldn't be more thrilled for us. We are going to be pregnant buddies. We are not ready yet to make it "facebook official" or anything like that yet, but telling everyone was really nice and I finally got to feel the excitement with people.
@coopsmama: Are you taking anything for it? Some people swear by seabands if you are opposed to meds. I felt GREAT last week, like amazing, and then this weekend sucked.
@JLC53: That's great! We told our parents after our nearly 9 week scan and then will be cool with it being "public knowledge," after the 12 week scan. Once we find out the gender, we'll probably make an announcement on facebook and the like.
@JLC53: That is awesome that it went well. We are hoping to wait a few more weeks to tell anyone besides parents/siblings. DS will be the next to know and I'm sure he will spread the word!

@crazydoglady: That’s what we’re doing in terms of timing. I have my first appointment (8 weeks) on Tuesday, and if everything looks ok, we will announce to parents and siblings. We will wait until 12 weeks to announce to everyone.
I legit only want to eat starbursts and skittles...
@JLC53: girl I hear you. My diet has been atrocious but I’m goig with it. Total preggo combo of cheese and pickles over here has been a fave.
I just started B6 4x day to see if that will be enough to curb my barfing, which started up again yesterday. If not I’ll be adding unison, but I’m feeling decent-ish today so we will see.
Last night I had a very vivid dream that this baby is a boy. I'd love to have second boy.
@JLC53: cheese, ginger beer, Haribo happy colas.
8 weeks today, and felt nauseous for the first time. Was kinda hoping I dodged the morning sickness, but apparently not.
@greencraftycello: hopefully it will be shorted lived. The mornings I'm feeling nauseous I have a cup of peppermint or ginger lemon tea and it usually helps a bit.
@MrsBucky: @Ms.Mermaid: Isn't it funny how cravings work... I would never eat starbusts or skittles before. And it is jelly bean season, I'm done for...
