My right nipple feels like a billion fucking sharp pains right now I want to cut someone.
Prenatal vitamins - no more taking that shit in the morning. Gummies are supposed to cut back on the nausea and yesterday was a bitch. Going to start taking that shit before I go to bed.
On the other hand, the constipation has largely gone away - its just the gas now.
For lunch I had cheddar cheese, grapes (OMG SO EXCITED ABOUT THE GRAPES), and a cupcake. My coworker is like lets go to lunch and all I could think was 'what doesn't have a lot of smells?' so we went to a cheese bar and I ordered a plate of cheddar and the waitress was like 'it comes with grapes and nuts' I'm like dude fuck the nuts please give me twice as many grapes (which they charged me two bucks for but I didn't care). One of the cheddars sucked but I still have parts of the other two (I couldn't eat a lot in one sitting BEFORE being pregnant...now its like I'm lucky to finish a mcdonalds cheeseburger) and some left over grapes - then I got a vanilla cupcake with strawberry icing.
It was the best lunch ever.
Grapes mess with CYP3A4. Have an orange / lime instead, Madam

It is very rewarding having children. Giving birth is another story. I wish you the best. Going the know the sex route?
There is no way I would have not found out the sex of my kids. The first pregnancy is so overwhelming that I found it so much easier to know exactly what to buy. Just helps relieve some of the stress.
Plus I think being able to do names early really helps you bond with the little creature in your stomach. I think it is so cool that you can start getting a peek at their personality as early as the tummy, recognizing the reasons for them kicking at you and such.

the fuck is CYP3943?
I mostly eat a lot of pineapple.
I love veggies. LOVE them. My parents never had issues getting me to eat them and I think people who need to put things like cheese on broccoli are sad - broccoli is awesome just by itself! But I've never been a fruit person. All I want to eat it seems like is fruit, especially pineapple. Going by the old wives tales about cravings and the chinese baby calendar I'm supposedly having a girl. And to be honest I kinda feel like its a girl. I keep subconciously slipping and saying 'she' and I've had dreams that its a girl. We'll see!
But we're not going to find out the sex. Just fun that way and I've heard that it kind of makes folks who want to gift give give you things you NEED instead of wants. Plus we already have names picked out (family names). Have for a long long time, even before setting a timeframe for trying to conceive.
Lillian or Michael.
But for now and until delivery, we are just calling the baby 'peanut'. Peanut gave (haha I just typed her) dad an xmas present - will let you all know exactly what it was after xmas.
Lost in translation there - Danes simply call grape fruits 'grapes', and it was 4 am, apologies.
By all means, eat as many grapes as you please, stay away from grape fruits if possible though
CYP3A4 is an important liver enzyme for metabolism of xenobiotics:

My wife's advice is to take the epidural. If you are one of those people that want to "feel" the birth, the doctors offered us a half dose and my wife said she felt everything except the pain.
Or you can skip that and potentially be one of the crazy screaming women scaring all the other pregnant women who arent as far along in the delivery process.
We just had our first last Sunday. I was looking down the barrel of the gun the entire time. Cannot be unseen...
Take the epidural. Maybe then you won't slap your husband in the face for helping you breathe. Then when you look calm he says "doesn't that feel better" and then you slap him. Later you tell him it's because you wanted to slap your mom but the damage is done. The damage is done!
Fuck that shit, for thousands of years women risked their lives in natural childbirth. By going natural you are initiated into that history of our species on this planet. Getting an epidural is like your boyfriend powerleveling up a wood elf druid for you and then you just jump right into his raid guild with no gear once he has you at max level and some poor wizard has to sit so you can pretend you know how to heal or anything else about the game. Yes, its exactly like that! Not at all bitter, just saying. Don't be a cheater. Deliver the baby like your great great grandmother did.
From reading stuff....why would I need a comforter or bumper for the new baby? Seems like add on marketing stuff.
Is fitted sheet plus receiving blanket all I really need and maybe a crib skirt? I might not even need the crib skirt because I have under crib storage in the one that I want.
My MIL gave us a PB gift card - thinking of just getting a couple of fitted sheets a la the below:
You should get a mesh bumper, ht yeah those bedding sets are huge wastes of money. Blankets of any kind are just suffocation hazards for like the first year. Mesh bumpers protect your kid's feet and arms from getting stuck in the railing without being a suffocation hazard.skirts are worthless Imo, just something else to collect dust in the room.
Stokke works well - Sleepi Cot, Tripp Trapp chair and Care nursery are very nice. We got them used, never looked back.
You swaddle for the first several months so don't bother with blankets. And yes as Chaos said, bumpers are necessary because as soon as they are not swaddled, or can get out of the swaddle, they will be sticking their arms and legs out.
I started using a regular blanket at about 4~ months, but they were all in a bassinet beside me at that point so I felt comfortable with it. Some babies do better than others about not covering themselves up, you'll just have to wait and see.
My youngest didn't want to be swaddled when he was newborn but now at 9 months he loves it. But yeah you just use a blanket don't bother with a comforter.
Morning sickness: you should sneak some Diclectin in from Canada
Supplies: You can't have enough wipes, diapers (of all sizes - just start stockpiling them), receiving blankets, and facecloths.
Feeding: You gonna be a teat nazi, or are you open to pumping and/or formula? Costco has mega cheap formula.
Already picked up some pampers newborn diapers that were part of a black friday thing at toys r us. Along with a fisher price high chair thing that isn't a high chair/attaches to a regular kitchen chair (gogo space saving!). Saved about 60 bucks between all the items.
Mesh bumper. Got it.
I've got some receiving blankets in my cart at amazon - including those ones with the velcro you all recommended. Planning on doing this in slow little increments over the next 7 months so that it feels like less cash outlay (chaos if you have any good stuff send it my way!)
Had sushi tonight - really needed to get some protein in my system because I threw up most of the protein I ate yesterday (throwing up my stomach acids this morning before even eating anything was SUPER awesome - haven't done that since being hungover last year).....husband made a comment this morning that I looked like I had lost more weight....up to 7lbs negative at the moment. (Was I really this much of an alcoholic?? LOL)
I'm planning on grabbing a couple of ebooks and one of those belly band sound things and hooking the baby up to that in a few weeks. Hoping that theres ebooks of Colbert/Stewarts stuff with them narrating.
Remember that actual raw sushi is not good during pregnancy because of the possibility of bacteria. Cooked sushi totally fine though as long as you stay away from fish high in mercury.
Everything that isn't cooked is flash frozen - everything dies. So the only risk of contamination is the exact same at any other restaurant - during preparation. This is obviously assuming you go to a place where the stuff is fresh/hasn't been sitting around for days wherein the airborne bacterium that again would impact any protein overtime hasn't had time to start eating it. The fish you get in the supermarket is more likely to be a risk unless you thoroughly cook it through very well. You run the same risk of your microwaved olive garden pasta touching a contaminated surface (or say an unwashed hand) and getting food poisoning from that.
The mercury thing you're right on - I cut down on predator fishes starting about 6 months ago but the sushi/raw thing is a common misperception. I asked my OB just to confirm and she said the exact same thing. The good news is that this misperception often results in good sushi places being so clean you can eat off the floor.
I also eat subway and jimmy johns. Those guys can't afford to be known as listeria factories. The sheer motivation to protect onesself from a lawsuit and damage to reputation is good enough to convince me that their preparation and supply chain practices are probably safer than say mcdonalds (from which my sister contracted a very nasty food poisoning).
No one thought that cantelope would cause one of the biggest listeria outbreaks in recent memory either.
I might not know a lot about pregnancy but foodborne illness I know. Extensive cooking experience + background in immunology, virology (less relevant really except when it comes to virulent prions which aren't true viruses but w/e), biochemistry = that's the one thing I understand. There's a whole bunch of "OMG DON'T EAT THIS" that isn't related to a particular toxin (ie mercury - which is a legit concern for almost total avoidance), but is related to risk of foodborne illness. I feel comfortable enough to make those decisions for myself. I discussed this with my OB and she agrees that I have a pretty good handle on the situation - or at the bare minimum that I fully understand the risks I'm taking, and fully understand that everyone takes risks they don't know about with 'safe' foods. And again she told me that sushi's completely fine - she was pretty jazzed that my favorite thing is salmon sashimi. mmmmmmmm good omega3's!

Good to know, thanks Etoille. I've never been into raw sushi so never really looked into.
After your first child none of this nonsense matters. You are not the first woman to give birth.
Here's a fun bit: Listen to everyone's newborn advice, but don't expect any of it to apply to your baby. Your friend may say "they'll feed every two hours" then your kid comes along and feeds every 30 minutes, or every 2.5 hours. I might tell you that the best way to get your kid to sleep at night is to keep him/her on a tight feeding and nap schedule during the day, but then your kid comes along and says 'fuck that' and does whatever the hell it wants. Babies have their own agenda; and sometimes it matches what those parenting books tell you, and sometimes it doesn't.
You may birth a content happybaby that you praise for being such a good newborn. You may birth the spawn of satan who never sleeps, refuses to eat, makes you cry, and if it wasn't for the fact that it's so damn adorable you wouldn't hesitate to cram it back into your babyexit for another 9 months.
It does boil down to this:

Feeling pretty guilty. I can't just not eat like I used to for long stretches of time. I'm going to have a big fat slice of pie to make up for it LOL. In a little while at least....I had to eat the soup (was also thinking it was good to have more liquid) in three batches - about 24 ounces.)
I'm not sure fat has as much to do with it as genetics. Just big babies in my family, both sides. Daughter was 10lbs 1 oz when she was born, less than 20lbs at 1 year. Whole family is pretty large babies, but overall fairly slim builds. Don't think they correlate too much.
My son was 8lbs 14ozs and newborn diapers fit him just fine. Maybe it depends on the brand /shrug
I lived on dry cheerios in my first trimester. Never left home without a baggy of them in my purse. Morning sickness freaking sucks.

You are however welcome to ask Ravvenn (who has met me IRL) her opinion if that's a source you consider trustworthy .
Gavin I would remind you of Draegan's words on the dad thread. You can be penisy/do whatever it is you try to do to act like the cool pretend neutral I'm the guy that trolls everyone/whatever this sandy vagina act it is that you have going with everyone but this is the adult discussion part of the forum and that shit is frowned upon here. Draegan's rules. Not mine.
Keep conversations civil here, getting infracted or banned because we cant act like adults in a single forum on the board would be a shame.
Edited first part out per tarrant.
Back on topic - has anyone played around with a fetal doppler monitor? I go back and forth between 'sounds cool, want' to 'sounds like a way to get frustrated, do not want.'
Last edited by Tarrant; 12-12-2012 at 03:54 AM. Reason: Not hard to understand
My wife had one for about a week Etoille before every single thing that "didn't sound right" freaked the fuck out of her and she threw it away.
As far as diapers go I will tell you this buy the target brand ones they will save you a shit ton of money, we have tried just about every brand with our 15 month old and those things handle his big shits better than any of the name brand ones have.
Ps: If you have not gotten a baby monitor stay away from ones with a camera unless you wanted to be turned into some sort of crazed worrying maniac anytime you travel without it. The wife wants to check on him every 15 minutes whenever we go to visit family because she cant see him sleeping its crazy.

They get a couple warnings, a 3rd sends them to the shaw, I don't want to be a dick about things and only care to send to the shaw is they are going full retard constantly. It's been decided that editing out content in posts causes less issues and is what mods want to so I am just following that.
Just talk about the discussion topic at hand in an adult manner and there shouldn't a problem, it's not overly hard and this is the only forum on the whole site where you have to do so.
At any rate, sorry for the disruption to the topic.

They work, just very badly. The one we bought caused us to panic when it took like 30 minutes to find the heartbeat. We would have been in the ER except that my wife could feel movement. They are huge pieces of shit, terrible purchase imo. We never used it again after that one night.
Have to post this because it is my 7 month old's absolute favorite food. She likes "eating" with us at meals but doesn't like purees so we have tried a bunch of finger foods - baby puffs, bananas, avacado, etc. She'll eat them all, but not a huge fan. I hit the jackpot with these ones however, she just gobbles them up.
1 cup of baby's fav fresh fruit, pureed
2 cups plain or vanilla yogurt
Blend pureed fruit and yogurt. Line a cookie tray with wax paper. Fill an icing bag (or ziploc baggie with the corner cut off) with the mixture and place dime sized dollops onto the cookie sheet. Put the cookie sheet into the freezer until firm. Store the frozen yogurt drops in a freezer bag. Serve to your baby frozen.
Most babies can have yogurt at 6-8 months, but you can always check with your pediatrician first.
Huh. I will try that. So you just put them in a little bowl in front of her and she grabs them on her own and eats them?
I also have a 7 month old daughter. She's a very good eater, pretty much eats whatever we've tried but we havent done finger food.
I also wanted to do that strainer thing that you can put fruit and stuff in and they basically suck it out as mush. My 4 year old loved that thing.

I nazi-modded this thread to be the pregnancy thread aka Etoille's personal blog & advice on how to deal with your fat pregnant wife thread.
So far we've been lucky when it comes to morning sickness but Saturday was rough for my wife... she only got out of bed to throw up all day
First trimester sucks. Second is the best IMO. Usually no morning sickness, woman is more often than not horny as hell with all that extra blood running around and not too big to be uncomfortable. Third trimester similar but the size of the baby starts to get annoying for sleep+sex+general comfort.
My wife did 32 hours labor without epidural, only reason she got it was because she needed assisted delivery (he was upside down) and they were considering c-section given how long had passed since her waters broke. Epidural is known to increase your risk of tearing + all interventions (forceps, ventouse, c-section).
Wife was perfectly happy laboring through the pain and would have done it all natural until we found out he wasnt gonna come without intervention given his position.
Last time I congratulated was on MN and probably not seen, so grats again on the podling labybro.
had 10wk appt yesterday - doctor found the HB just fine - around 160 bpm. NT scan scheduled for 4 January. Biggest symptom I have right now is burping. Its completely insane. My husband says that he's heard me burp more in the last 2.5 weeks than he has in 6 years - and he was out of town all last week. Asked the doc if there was anything I could take like beano or something she's like yeah you can try but no. Second biggest (literally) symptom...nipples are sore as fuck and huge. Boobs are slightly bigger than they were pre pregnancy....areolas are only slightly bigger but christ in a cartoon WTF nipples.
Eya - sorry to hear about the M/S - mine didn't start either until like 2 weeks ago which I thought was weird too - I was like wtf this late in the first trimester? You know whats getting me through it now? Candy canes. Haven't eaten those things in YEARS and now I'm always sucking on one. But I'm almost always throwing up in the morning at this point - my stomach acids only. *shrug*
I always liked hearing the heartbeat. Sounds like you're inside a UFO or something.
So my best friend found out Wed (she's 10 weeks ahead of me) that she's having a boy. All the old wives tales said girl. She wanted to eat sweets only (she is not a sweets person), she had dreams it was a girl, chinese birth chart said girl, mayan even/odd thing said girl.......everyone around her thought girl.....she wanted a girl.....
Only her husband, her aunt and cousin thought boy.
She's happy of course regardless. Now she told me that I must have a boy LOL. We're waiting to find out the sex until labor/delivery which drives her crazy...its going to be 7 months of WHY WONT YOU JUST FIND OUT??? We personally don't care what the sex is. We're planning on having more than just one and obviously since its our first we have more chances. I think they were planning on maybe only having one though. We'll see. I think its a girl based on old wives tales and dreams but obviously that's complete BS.
She also found out she has placenta previa, which means the placenta is low instead of high where its supposed to be. If it doesn't move up over the next few months it means basically mandatory c-section for her.
So for Christmas the baby gave my husband a Pentax K-30 and a diaper dude bag with an orange dragon. There was other stuff that I got him but this was the baby related stuff.
For Christmas the baby gave me blood laced vomit. Yay! LOL
That's all fine and dandy, but I think the question on everyone's mind is how are your nipples?
Sir please pay attention!Second biggest (literally) symptom...nipples are sore as fuck and huge. Boobs are slightly bigger than they were pre pregnancy....areolas are only slightly bigger but christ in a cartoon WTF nipples.
Perusing this thread initially felt like being forced to read Redbook magazine at the doctor's office because someone else grabbed the National Geographic and Time. An odd and worrying compulsion to read further has now resulted in me closely monitoring this thread for tales of lady farts, burps, and sore nipples.
Booked my appointment at the shrink today, wish me the best.
My wife's nipples are now like 3/4 of an inch long from 4 weeks of breastfeeding. Strange as fuck. Baby needs to stop sucking on my damn tits =/ Especially since daddy ain't getting none.
(just for you Cut)
Speaking of....just picked up some breast pads from Amazon. No change really though in terms of nips. Least that I've noticed. Still big. Still puking in the am - mostly water and stomach acids, followed by about 5 mins of dry heaving. Sometimes there's traces of blood, sometimes not. Doing better on getting protein into the diet but I'm still losing weight for some reason *shrug*. About 12lbs lost now.
Found out a good friend who watched another good friends kids (paid) is pregnant with her second - basically childcare has been 100% solved probably at this point. Awesome timing is awesome.
Definitely have a small bump - can feel the uterus above the pelvic bone at this point. So ready to be done with 1st trimester. Counting the days until 2 week from tomorrow.
My wife just hit 12 weeks yesterday and she's lost almost 15 pounds so far.
Saw this while looking for a gift for a niece. It was more than I was looking to spend, but it made me think of this thread. It looks pretty awesome, and I want one for when I have kids.
PS I love the fact that you were already like one of my favorite people on here being a Chicago foodie and nice guy to boot but I think its crazy awesome on top of it that you and your wife are expecting your first at the exact same time we are. I'll have to snag your address so I can send you stuff if I find any foodie baby things when it gets a bit closer to July.
@ ToeMissile - thanks for the link! I'm going to be in Chicago next summer and this might be a good idea in case of cold or snow!
Unless you are going to be taking your baby hiking in the mountains, you'll never need one of those bunting suit things. They are bulky, hot, and make it difficult to fit them into carseats. Most people won't have their kids that young outside in the winter except for to and from a car. Here in VA, we just use blankets. We even bought one of those things that fit over carseats, but never use it. I do realize that Chicago in winter is literal hell on Earth so it is a bit different, but I wouldn't spend the money on something like that, you'll just end up regretting it and unable to unload it on craigslist a year from now.
I live in the land of cold and ice and I agree with Chaos, those things are a giant pain in the ass. I used on eon my first and that was it, after that it was a warm coat and a shit ton of blankets and a cover for the car seat. Works just as well, if not better imo and it's way less of a pain in the ass to get them secured into their seat.
She hasn't had many aversions but doesn't have that much of an appetite at all. Smells seem to be the worst for her. She can't be in the kitchen when anyone is cooking any kind of meat but she is fine with eating it usually. Christmas Eve/Day were pretty rough for her with all the cooking. As far as cravings go, Portillo's Chopped Salad has been about it. When she gets hungry and has an appetite, that is the one thing she always wants.
July is going to be a busy month for babies... you, my wife, Kate Middleton, and now Kim Kardashian!
I went to boot camp in Great Lakes in Dec of 2000. The blizzard actually delayed my flight in. I wouldn't recognize the area without a foot of snow on the ground. Fuck Illinois forever after that shit. It was like 20 below one day, we weren't allowed outside, shit was crazy.
Another thing we bought for our second kid was a DOUBLEWIDE diaper bag. First kid we had one of those regular sized ones, and that was okay. But we bought a bigass diaper bag for our new little one and it's waaaay more handy. It basically becomes your outside-the-house baby survival bag...filled with bottles, food, soothers, diapers, wipes, backup sleepers, bibs .... .. .. .. .. .
Edit: ... .. .. . blankets, washcloths, baby crackers, bowls, spoons ... .. .
Yeah, that is the thing we have. We used it for our 2 year old but haven't so far with the new baby, but it only now got really cold here.
With diaper bags, meh, my wife and I are not really organized people I guess so we didn't fully utilize the diaper bags. More recently I insist on using it because we paid for the damn thing and I am making an effort to be more organized, but previously we just used one of those little freebie/cheap reusable shopping bags that they have everywhere these days. For me, it is one of those things that everyone says "Oh you HAVE to have one" but you really don't, if you want to save money.
My wife has been going through our baby stuff and putting it up on craigslist to sell, so maybe I am more sensitive to clutter right now. We have like 3-4 diaper bags, over 500 pieces of clothing (that is just so far) from newborn to 6 months, toys and swings and shit everywhere, it is a mess.
I think that is the exact one we have, of course it was like 15 bucks more expensive back when I bought it, but meh whatever.
So....for those of you old school zul'jiner's.....went to Moqui's last nite for new years eve like we do every year. No one in the group knew we were pg.
We walked in and he had spent all day making italian beef sandwiches....the smell made me feel ill the second we walked in but I was like ok suck it up power through. Until we got to the kitchen 2 second later to drop off the stuff we brought wherein Moqui proceeded to lift the lid off the pot, exposing more smell and the sight of it....I gagged, tried to get a hold of myself, failed, and ran for the bathroom and threw up.
Husband just looked at everyone and was like "So. We're pregnant." (Apparently - obviously I was puking elsewhere).
End of the first trimester this weekend. Cannot wait for the morning sickness to leave permanently. Was out with the CEO of one of the small businesses I work with for drinks and oysters....told him I was pregnant. This was helpful later on when I had to excuse myself to puke my guts out in the restaurant bathroom. Husband and him are new BFF's though so at least I could just get up for like 10 mins and he was occupied. But I'm just really fucking tired of the aversions and 50% chance that no matter what I eat I'll be seeing it in an hour or so.
Told work a week ago - that went just fine/no surprises. Had NT scan last fri as well - the ultrasound part went well so thats why I decided to tell work. Blood work component results came in wed....lowest chance possible/best score possible on chance of trisomies 18 or 13 (think Bella Santorum) (1:10,000) and another great score on trisomy 21 (downs syndrome) (1:9,000). So they've officially declared me at such a low risk that insurance likely wouldn't even cover further testing even if I wanted it and the labs doing the new Materni21 tests won't even take samples if I wanted to.
On a different note - anyone have experience with the Britax B-Agile travel system? That's what we're looking at/the one I really liked. Love how easy it folds down and its SO light! Would welcome any feedback.
Only thing I can come up with. Thank fucking god I'm not a woman. Toughest thing we have to deal with during a pregnancy, is not being strangled for leaving the toilet seat up, or for being blamed for the crisis in the mid east.
Remember to get iron supplement from week 10'ish if you're not already - Pica is an obvious indication of iron deficiency. This is in addition to your regular vitamins + folic acid + Calcium

My wife is around 25/6ish weeks and we can actually see the baby kicking. So awesome.
Draegan I can't remember - did you guys find out the sex?
We aren't finding out the sex on ours. Figuring it is one of life's few genuinely unique surprises and we like it each and every time.
We are finding out and I don't feel bad about it
Same here, we are going to find out in about a month(right at end of first trimester now). Mainly for planning/budgeting purposes. My wife's brother has a 3 and 7 year old boy, and they have TONS of hand-me-down clothes and toys and such for boys, but nada for girls, so we want to budget ahead of time how much money we are probably going to be spending for this whole ordeal.
It's not a very romantic idea or reason, but fuck it, I want to be responsible and prepared and not spending money that I don't need to.
My brother in law and his wife have 3 girls and have almost an entire dresser full of unused girls clothes with the tags still on them... it would definitely be a boon to us if we were having a girl (which, for what it's worth, is my preference)
Those of you with pregnant wives (esp first timers)....
Call your insurance and check to see what your breast pump benefit is. Starting in 2013 Obamacare required insurance providers to provide some sort of benefit. It can range from the company covering the cost of a rental to a 50 dollar reimbursement to a partial payment on certain pumps.
Our insurance fully covered no deductible the cost of an electric breast pump (double). In my case I have to go through one of their approved durable medical equipment (DME) suppliers but that's now 350 dollars that I don't have to spend.
The issue is that because of this change a lot of the DME's are actually experiencing shortages. I found this out when I started doing research so I ordered mine to get out ahead of the crunch.
I just had my 2nd little one 2 months ago as of yesterday ( well my wife did!) Little man is night and day different than his sister.
