I'm laughing at all the adoption idiocy. My daughter is mixed race, so I get asked if she's adopted, if it upsets me that she doesn't look like me, how lucky she is that she'll never need to tan,...

Thanks for the support, everyone. I think the first time around the idea of a baby is wonderful, and then you go through labour, post-partum complications, the one long day of the first six weeks,...

@halloweengirl - I've been getting terrible migraines, too. My doctor has told me it's safe to take paracetamol (acetaminophen in the US). Just no aspirin or Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, and Nurofen). ...

I did not announce my first pregnancy on FB, but I did announce her birth. I think I will probably do the same this time around. First, the cutesy pregnancy announcement is just not my style...

We had our dating scan yesterday, and there's definitely a tiny person in there doing cartwheels. I would swear that I'm feeling movement already. Even though I know that I was exactly 13 weeks...

I'm loving all the husband name suggestions. Mine wants Bradley for a boy "because he'll be cool and not bullied." I'm like "1982 called and wants its name back."
I think my nausea is getting...

Daphodil, I'm so, so sorry. I'm very proud of you for remaining hopeful for the future.

@ anyagreenwich I love Willa. Would you go with a longform, or just Willa? I'm feeling Wilhelmina today.
@adelina and tiannarose Leonie is a guilty pleasure name, but I worry about pronunciation...

@adelina Antonia is actually an Annie, so we definitely would like a vintage nn option with this one, too.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions!

I am struggling to find a girl's name that complements Antonia. I want something that is traditional but not popular (Antonia is outside of the top 1000), that is serious without being boring (my...
I voted for Tess Marigold, because it's lovely. I think Tess is sleek and romantic. Great name. I was trying to brainstorm names that "go" with classic names Clare and Grace as a middle:
@shilo - how did you know that your progesterone was low? I'm currently 10 weeks pregnant from a frozen embryo IVF cycle, and have just stopped progesterone supplements. So of course I'm anxious...

@scarlett I've been waiting for your return! It's exciting to see them doing flips in there. I'm very much looking forward to you getting fatter and happier with this pregnancy.
@daphodil good ol'...

There was a high likelihood of twins with my first pregnancy, since we did IVF and transferred two embryos. I was excited by the idea. After actually having a child, I was terrified this pregnancy...

@saracita - oh man, you are not having it easy this pregnancy. And I'm so sorry to hear about your MIL. Bed rest is miserable. My sister was on bed rest for three months with her daughter and a 1.5...

@daphodil - those are amazing maternity benefits. Where do you live? Congrats on wrapping up your thesis. What programme have you applied for? (I love school pretty much more than anything in the...

@bluejuniper - congrats! I'm an IVF mum, too. My daughter was from my second fresh cycle (Day 5 blastocyst), and this nugget is a frozen Day 5 blastocyst from the same cycle (my husband jokes that it...

@singlemom3, welcome, and congrats! You'll need to change your handle now to singlemom4 :) What a cool story. Three live in babysitters?

@luckystar, a boy! So exciting.
April 16th, 2015, 09:42 PM
I've heard our bodies are really efficient at extracting the nutrients our baby needs, and so long as you're taking a prenatal vitamin, I wouldn't worry too much. My food aversions are so strong this...

@greyer, I've been in touch with @scarlett, and all is going well. I think she just needs a mini break from this board while she gets on top of her anxiety. I'm sure she'll be back soonish.

We had our first scan yesterday at exactly 8 weeks. There is definitely something resembling a prawn in there with a very strong heartbeat. It was measuring 8+3, which is not possible as I did IVF...

@greyer and luckystar – congrats on Easter baby announcements! We told family and a few friends right away, and then I guess we’ll tell people more generally after 12 weeks, but I...

Nothing seems to ease the morning sickenss other than eating, and the relief only lasts for about five minutes. I have to be really on top of eating, because one minute I'm just generally feeling...

Morning sickness is utterly kicking my ass. No vomiting, but relentless, all day nausea. It started at four weeks, and is getting steadily worse (I'm now 7+3). I'm trying very hard to be grateful,...
