November 2013 - Due Date List

    We haven't told anyone yet. I'm just 4 weeks (exactly) today, so we're going to wait until I go for my appointment on the 20th--I'll be 6wks 2days (approx., if all of my dates are right!) then. Once that's done, thennnn we're finally going to tell our parents!

    It's the FIRST on my side and my DH's parents have 3 other grandkids from DH's brother/SIL.

    No clue how we're going to tell them, probably nothin' too fancy/cute/adorable!

    @T.H.O.U.: We won't tell anyone else before then, but it will be very hard not to tell our parents because we see them all at least once a week, and we want them to know what's going on with me. How soon did you tell them with your daughter?

    @Mrs. J: We had wanted to wait until out of the first trimester. But I had an U/S at like 7W6D and saw the heartbeat. Then we saw my parents around 8 weeks and we wanted to tell them in person so we did then. We told his parents around 9 weeks, close friends around 10 weeks, and other friends around 12 weeks. I waited to tell work until like 14 weeks I think.

    @Mrs. J: We're just inviting them over and telling them casually -- in STRICT confidence and with the understanding that it's really, really early. I normally wouldn't tell them but if we don't then I basically won't get to hang out with any of our friends until we do.

    And they would also know if things didn't work out, too, so I'm okay with telling them!

    We told both sets of parents on Saturday, the same day we found out. I also told my best friend and my husband told his brother.

    We had to tell them all on the phone (well, FaceTime for the parents) because we don't even live in the same state as any of them. I wish we could have told them in person! Everyone is very excited. First grandbaby on both sides!

    We're not telling anyone else for a while; the people we told are ones we would want to know if we had a miscarriage, and they know that we're not telling anybody else. It's already REALLY HARD not to tell our other friends! I'm bursting at the seams!

    @DigAPony: I agree!!! DH went out on Saturday with our friends/his sister and her husband/his parents and he almost couldn't contain himself! (I was home sick.)

    @Mrs. J: ooh, I hope not pregnancy sick already!

    Tonight a friend popped by unexpectedly and I just know she saw my giant bottle of prenatals sitting on the kitchen table...ugh! She didn't say anything, though, and hopefully she won't say anything to anyone else.

    I'm joining in. I have decided I want my due date to be 11/12/13. My official edd is 11/7 bc lmp was 1/31; however, since my cycles are so long, I think adding 5 days is ok. We will see what the obgyn says abt this. My DH is wondering if I can just choose my edd. Lol - well I am

  10. T.H.O.U.

    wonderful clementine / 24134 posts

    @ChitownRo: welcome!! You totally can choose a due date that you at least want to tell people. Last time my LMP put me at the 18th but by size he changed it to the 14th. I still told everyone else my edd was the 18

    THOU - November 3rd
    Digapony - Novermber 6th
    Mrs. J - November 7th
    Ms.JaneDoe - November 11th
    ChiTownRio - November 12th
    MrsDragon - November 14th

    Hi everybody! I'll join in - I think my due date will be Nov 13. I got my BFP yesterday, #2 on the way LO is 14 mos. No symptoms yet but the last time I didn't get a lot of the typical pregnancy symptoms so we'll see.

    @DigAPony: My birthday is Nov 6. I think it is a great birthday

    @Mrs. J: Our pictures are too much alike, ha ha!

    @shellio: welcome! i love that this board is growing so quickly
    @Mrs. J: love chicago - even on a snowy day like today. but i'm sure my 5 minute walking commute has a lot to do with that

    @ChitownRo: I've got a snow day today, so that probably helps!

    We haven't told anyone and will likely wait till after first tri. Or longer. We told our parents around 12 weeks with the last one, and most of our friends knew by 15 weeks. It is hard not to tell but also kind of nice to have our own little secret!

    @ms.janedoe: @shellio: @Mrs. J: @ChitownRo: @DigAPony: @MrsDragon: @maysprout:

    When are you guys going to start bump pictures? I think I may start soon because I can already feel the bloating coming on. Should we start a new thread for those?

  19. Mrs. J

    pomelo / 5132 posts

    @T.H.O.U.: I was just thinking about that this morning! I can't decide what I want to do with the pictures. What did you do with DD? Once I get dressed today (I am still playing the sickly lounging card), I'll probably take one to be the "before/first" picture, but I don't know if I want to go every week yet or every 2-4 weeks.

    Also, I'm torn on having our own thread for bump pictures. Does that seem weirdly exclusive from the other bump thread?

    I took pictures every week the first time around, but haven't done anything with them. I took them with just a sports bra and black pants so I could really see myself growing - but then I realized I didn't want to show them to anyone, ha ha. I really don't mind people seeing my belly skin but I just don't want to make others feel awkward. I think I might try to do every other week this time - with my shirt on

  21. Turd Ferguson

    pomegranate / 3160 posts

    @T.H.O.U.: I guess you could say I "started." I did a half/half picture for "3 weeks" , one of my "before" and the other half was a pic of the "pregnant" test. I don't plan on doing another one until 6 weeks I think...then probably weekly after that.

    I don't think it'd be awful to have a November thread, too, I'd still post in both. I'm easy though, I'm good with whatever is decided!

  22. Mrs. J

    @ChitownRo: I miss the city--we bought a house in the burbs this past summer. I will say I don't miss my old commute!

  23. Mrs. J

    pomelo / 5132 posts

    @ms.janedoe: I'd post in both too, I think!

  24. mrsmacandcheese

    blogger / clementine / 985 posts

    @ChitownRo: Congrats! I didn't even realize that due date would be a possibility -- that's really fun!

    @shellio: Congrats to you too!

    @T.H.O.U.: I decided I want a picture a week so I've taken two so far (hit 4 weeks today and I took one at 3 weeks 5 days for fun!). I'm just wearing whatever I have on, though... I don't really want to put my bare belly out there quite yet.

    @Mrs. J: I hear you on commuting. We are both lazy and hate commuting so will likely stay down in the city for the foreseeable future. But, ahhh - suburbs -- yard, square footage

    We had so little snow downtown. The heat of the cement always melts it Hope you enjoyed your snow day.

    @T.H.O.U.: I haven't taken a bump photo yet... or weighed myself to get a baseline. I should do both tomorrow. It's just so crazy that I am growing a baby right now - I literally don't feel different at all

    It's so exciting to see a November 2013 board! I am from the November 2012 board and can't believe how quickly time flies. In fact, it was exactly a year ago today that I got my BFP and started my pregnancy journey. My son was born on November 7th!

    Congratulations to you all and wonderful wishes coming your way!

    So, we told our families this week, and they're over the moon! For Dh's family, we pretended to take a picture, but we were actually taking a video. DH said, "Everyone say Mrs. J is pregnant!" It took a second for it to sink in, but then my MIL started screaming haha. We told my parents at dinner last night, and again, it kind of took a minute. My grandma looked pretty confused!

    @Mrs. J: That is so exciting to tell them! I can't wait for my appointment next week and telling family over easter.

    I just got my BFP yesterday, and my EDD is Nov 2nd. This will be my second LO. My first will be turning 2 in April. I am thrilled to be part of this thread of awesome November mamas. Hope everyone is feeling well this week.

    My LO is turning 2 at the end of May, I'm hoping 2-1/2 years will be a great spread between the 2 kids.

    @HLK208: @Maysprout: Thank you! 2.5 years sounds like a good spread to me too. My LO is great with his baby cousin, and I'm hoping he is just as caring with a little baby brother or sister.

    This is the first time I've been back on HB since my missed m/c in July. It was just too hard while we were trying again especially since it took 7 more months, but... I found out a few days ago that I'm pregnant again!!

    After a digital BFP and positive blood tests, I'm feeling pretty good! From my calculations, I'm due around Nov. 17. Hoping and praying for a sticky baby this time around!
