I've been to my sixth? seventh? ultrasound today (seriously can't keep track of them). Baby is measuring a bit small, but not too small it seems, and the placenta is still working alright. Going to see my doctor tomorrow morning, and then my midwife a couple of hours later.
I'm feeling sooo fat and clumsy, but the truth is that I haven't been this slim all my adult life (I've certainly been more fit, but it's hard not to lose muscles when ordered to stay still as much as possible by one's doctor) and I hope I will not gain a lot of weight during the breastfeeding period, as I did with my first child. (There was no end to my hunger and i ate, and ate, and ate...)

Are you having any issues too? What do you do to pass the time? I don't want to wake my husband so I moved to the living room and turned on the TV. Nothing good is on thogh :-/
By the way... it's not like i can't sleep because of any bladder issues... and I'm tired, but yeah. Driving me crazy.

So I haven't posted on here in a while, but thought I would let you know that my baby girl decided to come 5 weeks early. So on May 2nd 2013 at 10:29pm, after 14 hours of induced labor and an emergency csection, Liliana Rose was born at 5 lbs 14 oz and 18 inches. She is absolutely beautiful! We are still in the hospital due to her bilirubin levels being high. But other than that, all looks perfect=)

Mine is lemons. I'm eating one whole right now.
I just joined and would like to introduce myself. I'm Kathleen, 27 years old and from Germany. I had an appointment last week and the obgyn said I'm due on 29th June. It's pretty hard to tell as I had a really irregular cycle.
It's my first pregnancy and it tooks us about 2 years to conceive. At the beginning I was super nervous and pessimistic. I just couldn't believe why I should be pregnant now after such a long time and that everything will be okay with the baby. They also found out that I have hypothyroidism, which made me extremely nervous. But ever since I saw the heartbeat, I'm feeling much more confident that everything will be alright :)
So far I'm feeling okay. What's really weird though - on Mondays I usually feel like shit. It gets better which each day of the week though.
I'm also afraid of eating too much sugar. I try to keep a balanced diet and before the pregnancy I hardly had any sweets and no soda. But now... it's not like I eat everything in sight, but I have enjoyed a lot of sugar lately. Hopefully that will change soon though.
Even though we wanted to wait until Christmas, we already told everyone (except work). We just couldn't keep it to ourselves, especially since people knew we were trying and kept asking us about it (something I really didn't appreciate, but whatever). I don't mind anymore now.
I have one question for you by the way... what are your thoughts on prenatal testing? Our doc asked us to think about whether this is an option for us or not. Will you get it done? Why or why not?
