Big Grin Happy news!

It's already out at AMCF, but I'm very happy to announce that I'm pregnant! Just safely into the second trimester and due in mid-May. Luckily I'm over the worst of the nausea, although I'm still tired, usually in bed by 8.30...

On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."

Thanks for all the congratulations! Apart from the tiredness it's great now that I'm no longer nauseous. Even though I have to trim my fingernails once a week (normally every two weeks). My hair is in great shape and it's gone at least three shades darker. I don't much enjoy the cramps I get under the soles of my feet at night, though...

Granath...well...most of the uncomfortable parts will pass in a few months...then you will fell pretty good for a while, except that you will have an increasingly difficult time standing or sitting or laying down. Oh what the heck...lets just say it... you'll have an increasingly difficult time doing just about anything.... B U T...when its all over you will be the proud Mother of a beautiful baby, and that makes all of it, more than worth it....Good Luck and let us know how things are progressing!!!

You are lucky that your morning sickness has passed. Mine lasted ALL 9 months, and it was not just in the morning, but all day.

It will all pass quickly and before you know it the baby will be a teen. ENJOY!

If you get an attack of "the sleepies" and you're not at work or your house is not on fire, lay down and sleep. I think it's natures way of preparing for the months when you will have to grab your sleep a couple of hours at a time.

Thanks again. I'm hoping for an uneventful pregnancy as well, so far it's been far easier than I expected, even with the nausea. And no, it wasn't only in the morning, but any time of day if I didn't make sure to eat small portions and often, at least every two hours. Luckily my live-in bf didn't object to getting me breakfast in bed when I needed it most!

It's funny though, I haven't had any mood swings or weird fancies, at least not yet. The only weird thing is that I feel very insecure if my bf is on a business trip or spending time with his friends without me... I'm glad he's so understanding!

I know some people get really odd fancies and mood swings but not everybody does. I don't think I did but it's hard to remember everything about something that happened so long ago. Just take care of yourself, especially when you go outside in the cold. This is not a good time to be slipping and sliding on ice!

I did have a very short lived yen for Chili with lots of corn in it...YUCK!!! For a while my Martin, could hardly watch me eat it...as that is when he would get nauseas...LOL
No hormonal shiffts...well other than I did get very frisky when I was about five months along...good thing my husband really enjoyed my bulging baby body looks....we had a ball. I never did have the backaches, or morning sickness, only the difficulty sitting, standing, or lord help me...getting out of the car. That seemed to take the whole family to get me in or out...
