03/17/2014 at 13:04 PM

I am a mom of 3 already. Ages 5,3, and 1 1/2. I am pregnant with my fourth child. My due date is October 20th, 2014. Any other moms out there with October 2014 due dates????

Hi! I'm due October 16th with my first! I've had one miscarriage (blighted ovum) about 6 years ago, so I'm a little nervous with this one. I'm really excited and praying all goes well! I have a doctor's appointment on Friday and hopefully will have good news to share. In the mean time, dealing with a horribly disgusting taste in my mouth, nausea, mood swings, fatigue, and just an overall sense of restlessness. How about you?

I haven't had the horrible taste this time around. is it like metallic? Because i had that with my first. I found that drinking lemonade took that away pretty quick for me though. I've had lots of nausea and I'm also super tired all the time!! Restlessness for me only comes at night. How exciting its your first!! Congratulations! I'm sorry about your miscarriage. I hope all goes well at your first appt. My fingers are crossed for you :) I'm sure all will be well. if you have any questions or just want to talk, I'm always here!

Hi, I'm due Oct. 2. MrsT2U, congratulations! I've found that symptoms are a positive sign. Good luck with Friday's appointment. I'm going onto 12 weeks tomorrow and my symptoms have started to calm down. Thank goodness, but now I'll probably be wondering if the baby is ok every day! Can't win either way. Wishing you both a happy and healthy pregnancy.

Hi everyone! This is my first baby! I'm due October 11. I am a week and a half away from telling the world that I'm pregnant. I have a big gala function to go to this weekend and I'm having trouble with my dress selection.... I have a wee baby bump. very noticeable in a dress!!! How do I eliminate the stress of worrying about people knowing??? Congrats to all of us gals due in October! I am super excited about this journey :)

Flipper- You're always going to have that subconcious fear of how people will react. I'm sure most people will be as excited as you are that you're expecting. Just take a deep breath and relax. and make sure you don't make the announcement until you are 100% ready. You shouldn't have to stress over something so minute, which i know is hard to think since we all do. I'm sure everything will be fine and that everyone will be just as excited as you! Best of luck to you and all of us due in October!

Thank you Kfrazier! I appreciate you taking the time to read my post and respond. I will be able to come out with my news next week.... when I know Im fully safe. I guess my question is... is telling people one week before my 2nd trimester starts safe to do? I understand my stressing is really over something minute... And once I come out I will be able to strop trying to 'hide it' lol

Flipper, i suppose that really depends on you. I've had to tell people before my second trimester because of my symptoms. But i know a lot of woman that have suffered miscarriages and losses are more hesitant. It just depends on you and what makes you comfortable. I don't believe there's a "right" time to tell people. It just has to be the "right" time for you! And you're very welcome! My fingers are crossed for you :)

Hi ladies. I hope everyone is doing well. I have my appointment today at 1pm, but I woke up this morning to some light spotting that has become a little darker the last time I checked. I'm so worried. I have had a few twinges and cramps here and there, and last night I felt like I had gas pains, but I just don't know what's normal and what is not. Has anyone else had any spotting? It's not bright red but more brownish dark red, and only when I wipe (sorry if TMI). I've been looking things up online, but I think I'm just a nervous wreck right now! My doctor's appointment is in an hour and a half....so.... I guess I'll just sit here and stare at the clock until it's time to go. lol I'm just praying that this is normal. :(

MRST2U- generally spotting is normal as long as its not heavy bleeding, has clots, or is bright red or along with menstrul like cramps. However i would still consult doctor as its beter to be safe than sorry. M

Thanks for the response Kfrazier! I appreciate you! I went to the doctor and everything looked great! I saw my growing peanut! He (for some reason it just seems like a he to me) was so cute! He had little legs and feet and a nose and a perfect little heart beat of 165bpm. I was so relieved! The doc says I was actually measuring at 10 weeks 5 days instead of 10 weeks, so he's growing strong! She also said the blood was old blood and could be anything from left over implantation bleeding to just a little blood due to my body stretching and growing. Either way, we're all good! How's everyone else feeling and/or doing?

Hi peeps! Well I have been able to find a dress that hides my wee bump... stress??? what stress??? Thank you everyone for letting me vent. I am slowly getting ready for my evening out! Here's hoping I can hold off another week with my baby bump secret!

Mrst2u- you're very welcome. and that's great!!!! So glad to hear everythings going well! 165?? That's what my oldest daughters was at around this time! Usually they say the faster the heartbeat, usually its a girl. but you never know! I'm feeling better. most symptoms are subsiding, although my breasts seems to be getting worse, very very sensitive breasts. They've never been this bad, its horrible! I don't know about you ladies, but I'm kinda hoping for a boy. i have 2 girls and a boy already, so hoping for one more boy to round out my family!!

Hi all, Will be 13 weeks tomorrow and MS came on full force this weekend. I got sick for the first time. And now I'm also having very loose stool. I'm constantly bloated and look 5 months pregnant. I had a few days leading into week 12 where I felt great. Is anyone else's symptoms coming back?

Kfrazier - I'm actually hoping for a boy too, but EVERYONE says I'm having a girl & I have three cousins right now that are all pregnant with boys. The odds are not in my favor. Question: When I went for my US the doctor said the CRL was measuring 4 or 5 days older than the date the doctor had originally determined from my LMP. Does that mean the due date changes? Does that mean that I bump up 4 days as I'm counting down? According to my LMP, I'm currently 11 wks and 5 days. But if I go by what the doctor said during the US I'd be 12 wks 2 days (i think). I'm sure it doesn't really matter... I'm just curious (anal). lol

Ynoble - I'm at around 12ish wks now and my MS (really all day sickness) kicked in STRONG at 10.5 or 11 wks. I was gagging NON STOP for 4 days straight. SO GROSS. But today has been my absolute best day so far. I'm hoping the little peanut isn't playing an April Fools joke on me! Because I really want to be able to enjoy food again. My boobs still feel huge, but they don't hurt so bad any more & the horrible taste that had moved into my mouth has now just about vacated the premises. The latest thing is constant Burping. Non-Stop. Hubby is so disgusted with me. Haha. He says "you can control that". lol But i swear I can't. & I'm bloated. I have no idea how to tell what's the beginnings of a baby bump & what's watermelon belly. Ppl keep asking me if I'm starting to show yet, & I'm like.... uh... not sure?? lol

Mrst2u- generally they say all babies grow at the same rate until 12 weeks. However, since its only a couple days it most likely won't matter. Every baby I've had, even before 12 weeks all grow at their own pace. some are going to be right on by the due date, some will be bigger, and some will be smaller. I wouldn't sweat it, and i don't think the doctors do unless its off by a lot, like months. You'll see at your 20 week ultrasound as well that the baby may not be measuring to the exact due date, its nothing to worry about and completely normal!!

Mommy Loves Sire 1, I am pregnant with my fourth. I'm sure with this being your first pregnancy, everything has already been so exciting. Expect pretty much the unexpected lol. Everything from the first time you hold your daughter to the first poop will amaze you. I know with me, with every one of my children, every first was amazing, imagine the looks I got for crying from the first smile to the first time my oldest rolled over. Having a choild also gives you a love that nothing can compare to. Every day with your little one is a blessing. I am also expecting a girl, my third girl actually lol. were you hoping for a girl? How has your pregnancy been thus far, seeing as your due only a day after me? My doctor actually changed my due date about 4 weeks ago when i got the actual date of my LMP from the calender i had previously lost lol.My new due date is Oct. 19th :) Have you thought of any names yet?

Hi there! It's been a while since I posted. I am soooooo excited and sooooo ready to have this baby girl! Yes... as predicted by everyone but me... I am having a little princess. :-) My due date is Oct 15th, so I have just about 4 weeks to go. I have our little nursery finished and my bags packed already. All I need is a baby! How's everyone else doing and feeling? Kfrazier? Are you still hanging in there? How have things been?

This has been the most complicated pregnancy I've had though! From 28 weeks I've been alternaring between my regular OB and a High Risk OB ( maternal/fetal specialist) because the baby is too small. Last ultrasound was thursday and baby only weighing 3lb and 8oz when the norm at this point is about 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 lb. But other than that I have a healthy little bundle. Due to the weight complications they are recommending I have a repeat Cesarean section.Congrats on your little girl! So my little girl will be born on Oct.16th. Yes, I said little girl :) I too am being blesses with a little princess! I was hoping for a second son but as long as she's healthy I am happy for girl number 3. She is definitely. the most active child I've had lol. Have you thought of a name yet? My daughter will be Allison Annemarie. Annemarie came from a combination of my husbands mothers middle name and his youngest sisters middle name.

Congrats on your little girl! Glad to hear you're hanging in there! Sending up prayers for little Allison Annemarie & a healthy delivery. What a pretty name! I initially wanted a boy too, but as soon as I found out it was a girl, I was thrilled! Funny how your perspective changes when you learn the gender. I think I'd be happy either way. We decided on the name Kennedy Marie. Daddy picked Kennedy & I have 2 grandmas who are Marie & Maria, so we think Marie adds a nice girly touch to Kennedy. I have an appt on Wed (36 wks), so we’ll see how much she’s grown. Last ultrasound was 4 wks ago & she was 3lbs 11oz. Dr said she was a little on the big side then. Surprisingly, I've only gained 21lbs so far. I totally expected to pack on the lbs. I have friends who gained like 50+ lbs! I plan to breastfeed & hear that it assists w/burning off weight, so we'll see how that goes. More than anything, I'm just looking forward to meeting my little one face to face. This has really been amazing!

It is funny how it all changes. I thought id be upset if i didn't have a boy, but as soon as they said little girl i was just as excited as i was with my first child. Kennedy Marie is a beautiful name as well. My husband and i actually just picked out a name for her like 3 weeks ago. We couldn't agree on anything before that lol! As for weight gain, i gained 100 lb exactly with my first ( a lot i know lol), i then gained 45lb with my second, 40 lb with my last and this pregnancy I am 35 weeks and have only gained 15 lb thus far. I actually didn't even start gaining anything until i was 30 weeks. Be sure to let me know how your appt goes! I'm sure you'll have a beautiful healthy little girl :) it has been a crazy 35 weeks, for me anyways! Ill be praying for a safe and easy delivery for you and little Kennedy!
