I am 6 weeks and 5 days and praying for a healthy baby (gender does not matter!).
I've been joking for about six months that I would get pregnant with a due date in May because we've been planning a trip to Disneyland (driving) in May of next year and it's been in the works for a year: sure enough, I'm due May 19! Coincidentally the same day we would've gotten to Anaheim! That trip is now postponed indefinitely for the happiest of reasons!
Congratulations!! We are due right around the same time - I'm due May 16th. This is my 5th
So far we've only told my sister and one of my close friends. I'm holding out for our Disney trip next month for some good photo ops! This may well be our last time, and we've always just spit it out to people, so I want to do something a bit different this time.
How are you ladies feeling? I have been SO nauseous, and this morning I was lightheaded, and ended up dry-heaving. I hadn't eaten yet, or I know it would have been worse. The heart burn (which I've had issues with for all of mine) has also started already.
It's a curse for the women of my family!
Feeling so rough has made keeping it a secret from my older two kids (8 and 7) and everyone else even harder!
