hi! — The Bump
D.C. Area Babies

hi!

Hello, I am kind of a regular, but am posting under an AE because I'm not ready to "come out" yet.

I got a BFP earlier this week and I'm very excited, but it's extremely early. This is my second pregnancy and I have some questions. I'm just over 4 weeks right now and I feel like I'm having some pregnancy symptoms that either I just didn't have last time or that I'm having really early. Every morning (even just before my BFP), I've been waking up with a back ache. It usually goes away once I get moving, but I'm hoping that it won't get worse. And I totally forgot about having to pee all the darn time! Also, my chest is already bigger. This is really annoying and didn't really start until at least the second trimester last time.

Did anyone else have any of these issues the second time and not the first? (or not as early?)

And finally, I went to the OB yesterday to have the beta test and forgot to get the list of stuff you can't do/eat/drink. I know the major ones, but I want to make sure I'm not forgetting anything (tequila is okay, right? hee hee) Does anyone have a good link for this info?

Thanks!!

Re: hi!

  • congrats, I hope you later come out and tell us who you are!!

    everything happened a lot faster and a lot sooner the 2nd time around, including showing earlier. I was still BFing so can't answer your big boob question.

    I don't have a link to a list ready but there are a ton out there, try babycenter.com

     

  • Ooooh, I can't wait to find out who you are!! :)

    I can't help with anything except your list:

  • I agree with sofka, everything happened sooner the second time.  It threw me a little since I knew so much earlier with number 2 that I thought I would have more time before symptoms started.

  • I think it's someone with a toddler, closer to age 2

     

  • give us a hint!!! is your LO a girl or boy?
  • Dear Again,

    I'm guessing BH0938402380938r0w983. Not 100% sold on you, but the writing style seems similar. I'll have to go through the board to see who else it might be as well.

    Two and through,

    I don't know much about second pregnancies as I haven't had one :) But from everything I've heard from my 2-time mom friends that each pregnancy can differ vastly from each other. So unless anything is out of the normal then you are probably fine. The back pains may be from the uterus expanding?

  • I was going to go with BH2720 but now I'm leaning toward chchchchia...

  • I definitely felt the aches and pains during pg #2 a lot worse than #1.  You are running after the older sibling, not getting as much rest etc.  I also felt everything a lot earlier - bigger boobs (but they didn;t hurt as badly when growing the second time around) and I think I was in maternity pants by 12 weeks (also, I knew how darn comfy they were so why wait).
  • I don't think that's ch ch chia's writing style.

  • congratulations!! how exciting!!

    most of my symptoms came earlier the 2nd time, too. i also had some symptoms that were different (no food aversions, fewer headaches, more nausea and dizziness).

    At this point, I fully believe it's someone who already responded and is trying to pull one over on us. Can't wait to find out who it is!

  • Wow! I'm late to the party on this one. I also have to deny, because I wouldn't post under an AE. Anything I would say to the internet I would say under my own name. I'm intrigued for the big reveal as well! Big Smile

    Since you're not much of a drinker, I'd be shocked if you were talking about tequila to begin with!

    I'm also looking forward to the reveal :)

  • over 500 views!!!! please please please tell us!!!! and no its not me either, but I wish it were!!!
  • I cannot believe how this thread has blown up. I think you all may be very disappointed when you find out who it is, sorry about that!

    I need to wait a couple more weeks before the big reveal. I'm really not trying to build the suspense at all, I promise.
