  • Due date? June 25

    How’d you find out? In retrospect, bizarre implantation cramping that felt like my uterus was being squeezed by a rubber band. ALL DAY. I then came down with both a UTI and shingles later that week so I convinced myself the UTI must've been related to the "bladder" pain I had been experiencing earlier in the week. When I didn't get my period after light spotting for a day, I took a test (well 3 actually) and it was positive! 

    Other children/pets? One amazingly sweet 13 yo Yorkie.

    Job? Health Psychologist

    Spouse/partner? Married 11 years, together 14. 

    First appointment? Was 11/1. Everything looked good for early 6 weeks, we go back for a higher res US to hopefully see the a heartbeat on 11/9. 

    Any symptoms? Shingles apparently was the first sign my body was freaking out. Now that that's resolved, it's mostly exhaustion that occasionally comes in waves in the afternoon, some car sickness if I'm hungry, some food aversions (my husband is now forbidden from eating peanut butter when I'm home), sore boobs, and I stopped losing hair in the shower!

    We have the same due date ☺️@rachelinspain
  • Hello Everyone !
    I just discovered the discussion boards on this app and I've had it since the begining 😅
    I have really enjoyed reading your comments on the thread thus far

    Due date? June 22, 2022

    How’d you find out? I was 12 days post ovulation and I thought I had food poisoning. In the end it certainly wasn't. (I hope this is not my body's way of telling le I'm prégnant for any future pregnancies 😬) I was feeling nausea still 16h after being ill but thought it was too early to test. Used a digital at home test and was supprised to see the results! I was experiencing hormone imbalances and cysts at the begining of 2021 that led to not having périods for a few months. Doctors told us that concieving would be difficult so we were both shocked that we had concieved on our second month of trying !

    Other children/pets? None

    Job? I am a Head Hunter in the engineering and national defense & énergy sector in France.

    Things you like to do? Yoga, hiking, wine tastings (now only in my dreams), travel, diy

    Spouse/partner? My fiancé and I have been together almost 6 years. He is French, I am American.
    We met 6 months into my solo backpacking trip. The intention of this trip was not at all to find love, but when you meet a good one, you can't let them go !

    First appointment? I was so lost with the whole appointement processes and what to do when. I think I've got it now, and finally have a midwife. Our second trimester ultrasound is february 22 when we will find out the sex. The anticipation is too much !
    Will any of you find out the gender or will you wait until the birth ?

    Any symptoms? I had nausea and vomiting during my first trimester. I was put on médication because it was hard to function puking 6+ times per day. I am 16 weeks (from the date of my last period) not on médication anymore but still have vomiting once per day à few days per week. I really hope that will stop soon.
    I had awful fatigue as well during my first trimester. Had to get minimum 10 hours sleep.

    Second trimester, I pee every 30-60 mins lol it's crazy, I have lower back pain, and My sex drive in through the roof.

    When did/have you start(ed) to feel baby move ?
    Have you bought à pregnancy pillow to sleep ?
  • Welcome @frenchtoast22 and congratulations! I’m a FTM (first time mom) as well with a due date just a few days behind you. Take a look at the “Read this first!” post to get a feel of how we try to semi-structure the board and let me know if you have any questions - it can be a little confusing if you haven’t been on a The Bump board before. A number of us are talking about finding out the sex in “The big sex mega thread” and movements in “First movements” so I’ll let you check those out there. Feel free to jump right in! No pregnancy pillow for me - I have an adjustable bed and am hoping that’ll mean I don’t need one. On Mondays we have a weekly check in post (you don’t have to respond to it right on Monday and feel free to respond to the one from the this week if you’d like) and us a spot to ask questions. Welcome aboard!
  • Sorry I'm late to the group!

    My poor husband's name is Gery. We bought a house that needs a lot of work about when we found out that I was pregnant. Been nonstop work since then and he is very protective of me and baby, so I couldn't even help move. 

    First appointment? 
    Wasn't till I was almost done with my first trimester. I had just started a new job right before getting pregnant and my benefits didn't kick in till my 90 days. 

    Any symptoms?
    I had all day sickness the second two months of my pregnancy. No actual sticking up, just not feeling good ALL THE TIME.
