Baby Dropped
I didn't have this happen with my son, but suddenly I feel this weird discomfort around my pubic bones I guess.... it's hard to explain. It feels like the insides of my thighs are sore way, way up high....

Felt baby hiccups for the first time
I had been waiting to feel baby hiccuping for litterally WEEKS, and nothing. I'm thinking it might have to do with my anterior placenta? Anyway, I had sort of given up when FINALLY, while watching TV, I started feeling the regular movement of hiccups!

Prental Tests: Glucose Challenge Test
On March 9, 2015 at 28 weeks 2 days pregnant
Baby confirmed head down!
I was awake in the middle of the night the previous week and suddenly felt a HUGE movement in my belly. I was actually certain for a little while that baby had just strangled himself with the cord! When it became clear he had not, I started wondering if he might just have turned head down! Sure enough, in the following days I noticed kicking in my ribs and no more kicking in my bladder.... Today my doctor confirmed she felt the head down low!

On February 16, 2015 at 25 weeks 2 days pregnant
Bought Baby's First Outfit
I was ordering baby clothing online with a friend and we were missing just over 3$ to get free shipping. That's when she suggested I buy something for baby-to-be! I quickly consulted my boyfriend and we ended up buying a cute little romper.

On February 4, 2015 at 23 weeks 4 days pregnant
Went on Babymoon
We spent a week in Cuba with some friends and their daughter. It wasn't a babymoon per se as our son was with us, but it was our last trip together as a smaller family!

Announced Baby's Gender to Family
Maybe not to family, but to my Mom. She called on Saturday night to ask about the ultrasound and what gender the baby was.
We also spoke to my MIL, but she didn't ask what the gender was and we didn't tell her. We spoke to my FIL over the weekend as well and my boyfriend said he'd rather we wait until after the MRI to announce the gender...

On January 8, 2015 at 19 weeks 5 days pregnant
Husband/Partner Felt Baby Move for the First Time
I had been able to feel baby's kicks from the outside for about a week, but baby seemed to quiet down as soon as my boyfriend was around. (Which is something I'll remember when he's born!!!) That night we were watching TV and I put my boyfriend's hand on my belly, just in case, because baby had been quite active just a few minutes before. And when baby kicked - my boyfriend felt it!

On January 7, 2015 at 19 weeks 4 days pregnant
Found Out Baby's Gender
I was convinced it was a girl, and during the ultrasound I kept looking to see if I could see boy bits... and suddenly I did!!! I exclaimed "Hey, that's a baby boy!" and the tech said "Yes, I think so!".

On December 10, 2014 at 15 weeks 3 days pregnant
EDD changed from May 31 to May 30
On December 7, 2014 at 15 weeks 0 days pregnant
Announced Pregnancy to Family
We sent family photos to the members of our families by email... the last one was split in four and showed my boyfriend's shoes with his birthdate underneath, my shoes with my birthdate underneath, our son's shoes with his birthday underneath, and then baby's shoes with my EDD underneath.
Funnily enough, my sister-in-law was the only one to get it immediately. My mother-in-law had to be told to look carefully at the last pic, and my Mom actually had to be told clearly that she was going to have another grandchild!

On December 6, 2014 at 14 weeks 6 days pregnant
Started Wearing Maternity Clothes
My current weight is only two pounds more than my starting weight when I got pregnant with my son.... but my bump is so big, my pants definitely aren't comfortable anymore!

On December 2, 2014 at 14 weeks 2 days pregnant
Felt My Baby Move for the First Time
I was on the bus and felt a sudden throbbing in my stomach. I wasn't sure it was baby, but the following days I got that bubbles feeling down low, and some more throbbing. How exciting!

On November 20, 2014 at 12 weeks 4 days pregnant
First Ultrasound
We had the NT scan. I was terribly nervous, but one of the first things the tech said was "There's the top of baby's head. We can see the ventricles, and they're normal." Of course it doesn't mean everything else was fine, but it's a start.

Baby was 6.5 cm and heartbeat was 156.

Wore bella band for the first time
So I've gained only 2pounds, but I look like I'm 3 or 4 months pregnant! The dress pants I wear for work still fit fine, but my jeans, not so much. So I gave up and went for the bella band over the weekend.

First Prenatal Appointment
On October 19, 2014 at 8 weeks 0 days pregnant
Heard Baby's Heartbeat for the First Time
I bought a doppler when I was 12 weeks pregnant with my son, so as to keep sane until I could feel him move. This time around, being the paranoid person I am, I couldn't bring myself to leave the poor doppler in its box until 12 weeks. So although I knew I stood very slim chances of catching the heartbeat, I figured I'd try. (I had already tried at 7 weeks with no luck.) After a few minutes, lo and behold! There it was, that chugging train heartbeat sound! I rushed to the bathroom where my boyfriend was shaving so he could hear it too!

On September 25, 2014 at 4 weeks 4 days pregnant
Told My Boss About My Pregnancy
I was meeting my boss for my mid-year review, although I had only returned to work after mat leave two weeks before. At the end of our meeting she asked if there was anything I wanted to mention so I said that I was pregnant again! She burst out laughing and exclaimed: "I knew it! I told everyone you'd come back and be pregnant already!"

On September 17, 2014 at 3 weeks 3 days pregnant
First Positive Pregnancy Test
From 3DPO I had cramps and was certain I was pregnant. I tested at 6 DPO and obviously got a BFN. I wanted to wait 10 DPO and test with FMU, but I couldn't keep myself from testing in the afternoon of 9 DPO. It was a faint line, but it was a line!

On September 17, 2014 at 3 weeks 3 days pregnant
Told Husband/Partner
After seeing the BFP in the bathroom, I went downstairs where my boyfriend was playing with E, our 13-month-old. E was sick and had refused to sleep the previous night and during the day, so he was in a dreadful mood. So I walked into the living room and told my boyfriend: "You know what the bad news is? We're getting another one like this one."

I have never been in natural labor so I keep having "signs" that its close now.. for two weeks haha! I will probably end up over due!! :D crazy.. one preemie and one over due.

Aww! I love little boys! I was totally rootin' for a cowboy this time around, but as you said - girls are my specialty. lol :)

Thanks for the response on the forum. I'm lookin' for another Preggo buddy! Have you found out your baby's gender, yet? Or are you keepin' it a surprise until the end? :D

Comment from knicole27 » Posted Jan. 14, 2015 6:46am
i have been kind of nervous off and on. Especailly being 30 weeks and my symptoms began around 31 ish weeks. soo yeah ... I am trying to remain optimistic about every thing. So far this one doesn't have any signs of being growth restricted like liam was by this gestation so thats good. This baby supposedly weighs as much as liam did at birth which is cool . especially since i am only 30 weeks and i had liam at 34. I am trying to prep my mind for the labor and birth I wanted before and keeping my mind clear and optimistic.
