  • @pajamstagrams welcome!! I'm so excited to have someone else besides DH to talk to! We decided that we're going to tell put families on Mother's Day. But no one else knows and have such a hard time keeping secrets. I'm most excited about telling our son, but of course we can't because a)I need to be much further along b)he will tell everyone!

    I'm with you on feeling crazy about feeling things when you're not even 4 weeks PG. That's definitely how I feel.  I've noticed I definitely feel hungry right away in the morning, whereas normally I don't care about eating breakfast. No major morning sickness...yet, just a little bit of queasiness in the morning. I was terribly nauseated the first 12 weeks of my 1st pregnancy.

  • @magalina_h I had bad nausea last time. Never really went away, but at least once I hit middle of second tri I started gaining weight. Never threw up though!

    Not sure when we're telling family. I imagine my immediate family (parents & siblings) will know soon enough because they've been in our quarantine crew so we see them on the weekends, and it's going to be obvious when I'm not drinking or when I'm not eating any food, or start losing weight lol. Or if DD somehow picks up on me not feeling well and decides to just spout off random things like "mama sick?"  :s

    @pajamstagrams we see my in-laws every weekend too. That's why it'll be so hard not to say anything. And I talk to my parents who live out of state multiple times a week. 

    I'm definitely going to miss my summer moscow mules and Trulys. I literally picked up a multipack of them the day before I tested positive, lol. 

    I had terrible food aversions last pregnancy and basically lived off of pasta and bagels/cream cheese because I couldn't stomach anything else. I can't remember when that started. So far I've been okay!

  • @lisa3379 👋👋 hi and welcome! I'm also trying to enjoy my coffee while I can. This morning my first sip was only "okay" and I got worried, but thankfully it got better.

  • @Lisa3379 Hi and welcome! I'm glad I'm not the only "older" mom  ;). What subject did you used to teach? 

    I've never been much of a coffee drinker (except for the occasional sugary Starbucks ones), thankfully. I hope you can continue to enjoy yours for a bit longer!

  • @magalina_h Yeah for old moms!  :D  I taught US History and AP Microeconomics predominantly, and a bunch of other stuff. I started the WWII elective class at my old school. Ugh, I miss it so much! I'll get back to it eventually, when all the kids are older. I'm sure you're excited to get back to your classroom! I can't imagine how hard the past year has been. Teachers are such unsung heroes (not to pat my own back in the process but it's true ;)

    @LJMoon6 Yay, you're here too! Congrats on your positive! Isn't that crazy how things work out sometimes? After all that effort, and then boom. It just happens. 

    @amanda690373 Nice to meet you! I hear you about the nerves after losses. This whole process is such a roller coaster.  <3

  • @pajamstagrams. Congratulations!!! 🎉

    @LJMoon6. So nice to see you again!  Congrats!!!

    @Lisa3379 lol I had a hunch when you said you had a, "good feeling," about tomorrow, you might be up to some thing.... Congratulations!!!!
  • @BusinessWife Haha! Yeah... while I'm stoked about the test, I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that my numbers are good and keep progressing, so there's the optimism but trying to keep it tempered thing. 

    Hi, Knottie! Glad to see you here. You should give yourself a proper handle, it makes it easier to get to know you. I think you have to do it through your account on The Knot? Maybe someone else has better instructions to do that, haha.

    @MrsJessS and @AshleyGemini24 welcome! Looking forward to getting to know you both!

  • Hi @MrsJessS & @AshleyGemini24 yay for getting some new members on birth month club! 
  • Lisa3379Lisa3379 member
    Welcome, Knottie! So happy to see you here! Suggestion: give yourself a handle. It makes it a lot easier to recognize and get to know you. :) 

  • I've tried to change it multiple times, and save it... but then it still says this!
  • Lisa3379Lisa3379 member
    @Knottieb5c7085731bdfb62 I think you have to do it through The Knot's website, not The Bump. It's been a long time since I had to do that, if I'm wrong, someone let me know.

  • Lisa3379Lisa3379 member
