    Babies Due Jan, Feb, Mar 2013

    Since our support thread got closed I thought we'd start a new one. I decided to condense the babies due period so mothers/mothers to be who are at similar stages in pregnancy can support each other. I probably left out some really awesome ladies by doing so but of course everyone is welcome!

    So my update... my belly is huge already haha I'm 17w4days. I feel my sweet baby kick and especially wiggle all the time. The day we turned 17w I felt the first kick from the outside! I've been feeling movement since 13w ish but it's only become very distinguishable lately. My next appt with the midwife is Monday and we can finally get the referral to the u/s tech for the anatomy scan and find out the sex! I'm almost positive it's a boy so I'll be shocked but equally happy with a girl

    @crunchy, I just wanted to comment about your scan. I know you thought it would be girls anyways but I think gender disappointment is still normal. I know you'll love the twins the same regardless and on the bright side you can start your own cheerleading squad!!! xox

    If you do want any girl baby dust... I can probably help there!
    Glad you have an appointment with your midwife soon. It will be fun to hear the heartbeats again! It's one of my favorite parts of doctor's visits.

    It's just so odd because a few months ago, DH and I were talking and we said if we somehow got to pick the genders we would probably choose a girl. So why was I disappointed with girls? I don't know! I think it relates to some other things this pregnancy and our lives in general this year. It's been a pretty intense year with lots of twists that I didn't see coming!

    One thing I didn't mention yesterday was that my blood pressure was a little elevated. I'm not happy about that. It's an ongoing problem in pregnancy for me. It's not in a danger zone or anything yet, but from experience, this is how it starts. So I'm trying to rest and stay off my feet a little more.

    I turned 15 weeks Friday. Still feeling sick (normal for me) and my belly is out enough now that depending on what I wear you can tell I am pregnant. I can still hide it though wearing something baggy if I want but can only wear drawstring/maternity pants for sure.

    My last MW appointment went well. I had a UTI a few weeks ago and am supposed to do a pee retest to make sure that its gone etc to be sure.

    We are not going to find out the gender, I am getting nervous as time goes on since I did have a son born at 21 weeks so I do not think I am going to really be of the mindset that all is well until there is a screaming baby in my arms. But I do think that after 21 weeks or once I am feeling regular movement I will relax just a wee bit...

    The kids are of course excited, my older two keep talking about babies etc its cute. None of us are leaning one way or the other with gender, we are all just hoping for a sweet baby in March although my oldest daughter wants boy/girl twins. The US we had done a few weeks ago says there is only one in there, sorry.

    crunchy, my husbands wants a boy (5 in fact lol not happening) so no worries on the dust! Whatever will be, will be . We always get an audio recording when we go for our appts.

    jemama, today I realized I can't event wear my comfy yoga pants! I had worn one pair of maternity capris for a few weeks out of comfort but otherwise it's been dresses and jean shrts unbuttoned with a belly band. The tummy is hard too! You can clearly tell I'm preggo now but it's surprising I've only gained 4lbs. It's all belly, thank god haha. I gain weight really easy so I make sure I eat the right things and the right sizes. Keeping my fingers crossed for your little one I'm sure it'll feel great once you pass that milestone!

    I can still wear my yoga pants, for now. The butt is getting tight in them and I dont like them quit as, um, expressive but they work, lol. My lululemon ones with a drawstring waist are not going to fit another week, but my "regular" (from Target, their yoga pants are *awesome*) ones should be good to go for a wee bit longer. Never had a belly band if you can believe it. are they comfortable? Thanks for the crossed fingers, I know statistically baby should be fine, but it is of course in the back of my mind as you can imagine.
