I have recently joined this club of expecting (and hopefully will be here for 8 more months!) But I am still in that oh crap, really? phase. I got my IUD removed the 1st week in August and although I was told I should wait a few months to let my uterine lining build back up.......I am now about 5 or 6 weeks along. oops. I guess my OB thought I was a little more informed about fertility. So, even though I attempted to wait, it didn't work out that way..
so...spring chicken...be careful if you aren't looking to get pregnant right away! I was planning a few months from now, but oh well..now is a good a time as any. With any luck I will give birth before my birthday. My EDD is 5/11/11, but I don't think that is quite right.
I go to my 1st appt next wednesday and can't wait. Come on next wed!
I have to say though...I felt like a jerk yesterday when I told everyone at work. There is a lady I work with that really wants to have a kid (she is 40 yrs old) and they are having a super hard time. Then here I come along, not even trying. Turns out her man is shooting blanks..she found out yesterday about 2 hours after I told everyone that that was the case. Poor girl. I still feel bad.
I just hope that the baby survives, I worry about miscarrying. I've not been pregnant before so I have been trying to relax and not do any real crazy exercising.
Including my favorite sport...horseback riding my poor horse is gonna miss me. I wish she had a relationship, like she does with me, with someone else so they could take over riding her. She is crazy though and I can't chance it ( and most other people won't chance getting on her not pregnant) . I may sit on her back for a little bit today and walk around. But no jumping or cantering for me. She is gonna be quite the handful next year when I can get back to business. I need to find something to replace my riding so I can still be active, as tired as I am.
I wonder if there is a pregnant aerobics class or something like that. Will have to check that out, bet my OB has some ideas. I am really ready to see her with my book of questions
I wish everyone here good luck! Anyone on here expecting with a bulged lumbar disc? This concerns me...hurts now, what happens in the 3rd trimester when I am huge?
