    Welcome @jennynp and @daphodil!

    @cyoung325 yes that will be very nice to get some help. My MIL is so helpful with our toddler. Hope it works out for their move!

    My confirmation appointment was this morning, I didn't realize how nervous I would be about my blood pressure, but it was fine. The OBGYN also said I could take a low dose aspirin daily due to my history of gestational hypertension--studies show it can help prevent preeclampsia..that was news to me, I thought I had to totally avoid aspirin in pregnancy! So learned something new. Baby was in the uterus, only one baby, heartbeat was easy to find, and measured 8 weeks exactly which doesn't surprise me with the date I got my bfp and my 30-day cycle prior to getting pregnant. Ironic @cyoung325 because that moves my EDD to 10/4 which is the day before my son's birthday! Although I will be surprised if I make it to my due date. I hope they don't share a birthday! The OBGYN mentioned the Harmony test and I just found out my insurance covers it so I might be able to do that this time around instead of the NT test. If not, we got the NT scheduled for next month.

    Hope everyone is doing well! I have been very exhausted the past several days but am hoping to get back to my exercise routine this week after the good news at the appointment and I only work 20 hours this week

    Hi ladies, how are you all doing? I'm 7+1 weeks today and have been feeling pretty nauseous these past days. Thankfully no vomiting, but I have to eat constantly to keep the nausea at bay. The days are going by very quickly, but this time I have an active toddler to keep my mind occupied

    It's been a while but nothing really changed this last week. I had my first prenatal appointment today and all is good. Apparently they won't schedule my c section until near the end of the 2nd trimester which is a bit disappointing. I was hoping to know the exact date soon. The only thing my doctor suggested was starting to wean my daughter since the high levels of prolactin can somehow affect this baby. I never heard that before but she's almost 10 months old and I was already thinking of dropping a feed or two soon. I'm not feeling too bad yet. Just some nausea here and there and I'm exhausted, but that could be from chasing 2 kids around all day!

    Anyone start talking about names yet with your SO? We have two great boy combos, but I can't get on board with any girl names. I love Alice & Clara and I want to love this name too yet everything is either a complete no or just meh to me. DH likes Mary, Daisy, and Lucy and I'm just okay with them. I also think I decided not use Audrey as a middle after my SIL because of our rocky relationship. I want another honor middle but the only girl name we have is Elizabeth which is my middle. I'm starting to think maybe Danielle or Daniella after my brother I'm close to, but then I'm walking right into offending my SIL. Ugh it feels so much harder this time around! We like to pick names early on so we can refer to baby by name as soon as we find out the gender so I'm feeling some pressure to find THE NAME asap. I realize there's plenty of time and yet I don't think time will help any. Sorry for rambling! I just feel I have no one to vent to and DH isn't great with name advice.

    Cautiously joining! I'm 4 weeks and have gotten 2 BFPs. Scheduling an appointment with the midwife this morning. Based on my ovulation day and 32-day cycle, my EDD is November 13. This is my 3rd and I have been ready for a LONG time, lol. This will be my husband's first. When he caught up to My being ready, we had to put our plans on hold for 2 years due to an unexpected move, but here we are finally... BFP on my first cycle after removing my 10 year old IUD. I'll take that luck but I will feel better after hearing a heartbeat. I am overly anxious about everything developing normally - there is so much fear mongering towards "older" parents - husband is 37 and I am 34 - and this just all felt so easy. I'm terrified of it being an EL but really trying to remain positive (and mostly succeeding!) It's just too early for me to announce to my kids or my Facebook world, lol. I knew NB would understand

    My other 2 are much older. Oldest will be 15 when this one arrives, and youngest just turned 10. Funny enough, they are getting a baby sister over at their dad's at the end of April, so I'm a little worried they'll be unexcited by the prospect of having to deal with babies at both houses. I'm hoping this will be the first baby of 3 for us. I'm a planner, have it all mapped out. Hoping to wait 16 months between each, so all you mamas with 2 or 3 or more under 5, I'm hoping I can learn a few things from you!

    Congratulations everyone!

    Glad to hear everyone is doing fairly well

    Welcome @bluedanube! Best wishes for continued smooth sailing. I'm more calm now but before the first appointment I was also much more nervous than with our first due to increasing age and therefore risk of complications. The fact that more friends have experienced MC as I get older probably had something to do with it.

    We're not set on middle names but have a good idea on first names. If it's a boy, we'll probably go with my husband's favorite "guilty pleasure" name. For a girl it will likely be Vienne. I hope we would go with Vienne Irene. Oh and @cyoung I love Clara!

    Hi everyone! Just like @bluedanube I'm coming over from the TTC 2019 thread. I found out I'm pregnant this week, I should be about 5 weeks along and baby is probably due around November 8. I made an appointment with the obgyn yesterday, my appointment is in 3 weeks, so I should know more then.

    This is my second, but the first one for SO. So it's all familiar and completely new at the same time. This is my first planned pregnancy, my son Hjörtur was a surprise. I'm feeling optimistic and hopeful, but a little frightened at the same time. It's all very early. When I found out I was pregnant with Hjörtur I was already 10 weeks along (I suppose I was in denial), so this early stage thing is new to me.

    @cyoung: SO and I have been discussing names for months, and we've managed to come up with a shortlist of three (first) names for each gender. There's no guarantee it won't change. Right now, the names on our list are Greta, Lavinia and Magdalene for a girl, and Vincent, Magnus and Ellis for a boy. Vincent and Lavinia are our top runners. I feel some pressure to find the right name early on too, because I just want this out of the way so I can focus on other things (I worry a lot).
    I find girls names so much harder! I do love Lucy from the names you mentioned. I can understand you don't want to offend your SIL, and it can be tricky. Does she really expect you to honor her with baby's name?
    Mother to Hjörtur Emmanuel & baby due November 2019

    @bluedanube Welcome and congratulations! How lucky you were on your first month of TTC especially after that long wait. I hope all goes well!

    @orchid_lover I really like Vienne. Is Irene a family name is just one you like? It's really pretty, but I never see it mentioned even on this website.

    @rosebeth Congratulations! The first trimester definitely is the most boring and it feels like it's just a long waiting game. Waiting for that first appointment, waiting to start showing, waiting to feel baby. And while you wait you get to feel sick and tired. Definitely not the most fun, but it'll pass soon enough!

    I love the names on your shortlist! I wish I could convince DH to use Greta but sadly he's pretty particular about names and it's been a hard no for both girls so far. I don't think my SIL expects to be honored with this babe, but she's super easily offended and using my brother's name is likely to upset her. To give some perspective, she literally wouldn't talk to us for weeks when we told her we were pregnant with Alice because she wasn't the first person we told.

    Regardless of how anyone else feels, we *think* we decided on names! We had Ruby on our short list for both girls but my mom ruined it by saying she refused to call a granddaughter Ruby. It's the only name that feels right though so I think we're settled on Ruby Danielle for now and David Frederik for a boy. This way I don't have to choose which of my brothers to honor and the baby's gender will decide for us haha!

    @cyoung... I'm so sorry you have such touchy people to deal with. That is hard. I had a lady yell at me when I announced my daughter's name (at my baby shower!) about how much she would hate that name and how could I do that, etc. Pissed me right off, I had to leave the room. I think Ruby is lovely, and goes perfectly with your older two. Don't see why what she is named is up to anyone but you and your husband! Grandma should call her Ruby if that is her name!!

    @orchidlover Vienne Irene is really pretty! Curious, what is your husband's GP name for a boy?

    @rosebeth I love Lavinia and Vincent! My friend just named her baby Lavinia, as well. Magnus is also nice.

    I have been thinking about names for years, lol. Huge lists. I play Sims 2 and have neighborhoods full of wonderfully named sims just to relieve some of the tension, lol. Husband and I settled on a girl name when we were ready a couple years ago - Veridian Elora Luna - and that is still the one for both of us. Boy names have always been harder for me. I love Ulysses, he loves Valen (VAY-lin). I like Valen, just not as much as Ulysses, and it feels kind of match y to Veridian. I told him if we have a boy, this one can be Ulysses, and if we have another that one can be Valen. Lol.

    Welcome @rosebeth!

    Everyone has such nice combos in mind! Some of my favorite names mentioned are Magdalene, Ruby and Veridian. I actually know of a little Valen but was always curious about his unique name (I still don't know the story behind it) Irene is a family name on DH's side but it's always been among my favorites of the more classic names, probably because the meaning is similar to that of my own name. I compromised with DH that if he would agree to TTC one last kiddo we can name it Geddy if it is a boy. He asked for Geddy Lee, which I laughed and said was too much, so he sold me on Geddy Alexander since Alexander (like Robert) is classic, common, has many nickname options and therefore seems like a good "fall back" name in case Geddy hates his first name. Then a couple of days later I realized that Alex Lifeson is the guitarist in Rush. LOL.
