  • @mdogan29 - it hurts me in the same areas, but it's not prolonged pain.  The pain comes in sharp bursts that last a few seconds at most.  My OB seemed more concerned than I was about it.  I think she expects me to develop back pain later on so she wants me to start wearing a maternity girdle.  I would at least mention it to the OB at the next appointment.
  • @Samuelismomma -- that would be cool, I'm in! :)

    @NeonNoon - Okay, so it doesn't really hurt much when I'm sitting, it's when I stand up & walk after sitting, but it doesn't really go away while I'm walking, but then when I sit again I feel fine. It may just be b/c I'm overweight too - just more weight to carry around w/ it... thanks for letting me know!

  • @marijaa333 I'm the opposite. MH really wants a Rottie and I'm like nope. We both work 10/11 hr days and no way would I keep a dog home alone for that long!! He's jealous because I have my cat :) Guess we could get a dog walker but my answer is still no. Lab maybe but my cat is one spoiled cat. He will not tolerate a dog!!

    Happy to hear YH is coming around. Mine was like that in the beginning. He is getting a bit better. Hopefully a lot better when baby comes!!

    ME:46 MH:44 DE IVF 2014

One of her tests came back positive.  Waiting for another donor. Donor picked!! (1/18/14)

  • @BeckyP005 I understand the anti-dog argument, and am willing to wait until we have at least a tiny yard (we're in a condo now). Cats are invariably the boss, though, so I can see how yours would have final say in the dog matter!  Glad to hear your husband is also coming around. "It's a process," as the cliche goes. :)
  • Thanks @mandyreads, @MsMacual, @mdogan29, and @BeckyP005.  I think the interview went well - she has a few other candidates to interview but I should hear feedback and any next steps towards the end of this week.  I told my recruiter to call me even though I will be in London (we travel overseas a bit so I have an international plan)

    @MsMacual - thanks for the tip.  My recruiter, who does know I am pregnant, advised me not to say anything in the first round.  He said why give them a reason to not consider you.  If I make it to the next round, I will likely want to disclose but will follow his guidance.  

    Will keep you posted!  Off to London on Weds morning - can't wait!

  • 1. Due date? How many weeks are you? What size is baby? April 2015, 12 weeks, Plum

    2. Age at delivery? (optional) 40/41

    3. Any other children? Furbabies? DS 2 years old, 2 dogs and 2 cats

    4. How are you feeling? It's weird.  I have really good days with little to no M/S, then the next day I feel just okay and the following day, it's bad.  I think overall it is starting to lessen.  At least that is what I keep telling myself.

    5. Any upcoming appointments, milestones, rants or raves? I have my NT scan/bloodwork Thursday, if we decide to do any other bloodwork tests, it will probably be that day as well and then I have my regular OB appointment later that afternoon.  Thursday will be busy.

    QOTW:  Who, aside from your SO (if you have one), has been the most supportive thus far in your pregnancy?  If you haven't told many people, who are you the most excited to tell? We have only told people at work and my parents and a couple of close friends.  I can't wait to share with DH's side of the family, especially my SIL.  She will be super excited.  She wanted to know when we were planning to have our next one back in August.  Little did I know I was already pregnant at that time.  :-)
