Mommies to be check in

You must be so relieved now that you got your results back! We've been getting calls from my docs office offering genetic counseling. My DH little brother has down syndrome and the nurses feel it would benefit us to speak to someone about the risks and possibilies of us having a child with it as well. I'm not sure how I feel about going to counseling and stress myself out before I even get tested. I just feel that I want to take it day by day. If my test comes out positive, I'll deal with it then and begin the genetic couseling. But for right now, we opted not to go to the counseling until we find out the results. I'm very nervous about taking the test! How soon did you get your results?

I think I'm pregnant. I'm tearing up just writing this.
I have all the symptoms (swollen and tender breats, nausea, some cramping, tired, and of course I'm a crying wreck). I've been on the pill forever though. Except I missed a pill this month and didnt take it until 2 days later to catch up. Which according to all the websites about conception, that day I missed the pill is basically during my "fertile" time. I'm just nervous about the idea. I still have 9days until my I'm suppose to get my period. I'm afraid to take an at home pregnancy test and get false results because it's too soon.
At first I really didn't think this was the right time to have baby. I wanted to wait a year and enjoy married life. Now, I secretly hope I am.
See, I told you I was a wreck!
Atleast, my husband is being supportive. So I guess we'll see what happens.
It's been a few weeks since I posted, I wanted to share that I'm NOT pregnant. It seems I was going through a lot of stress and plain PMS.
I am sad about the situation because we became very excited. I know things happen for a reason, so when the time is right, we will be blessed with a beautiful healthy child. Who knows, maybe next year!
In the meantime, I'm pleased to report we are buying our first home. It'll be perfect to raise kids in. We are excited and maybe the year will come quicker than we know it!

No worries about the eating part. I'm sure it's fine if you're craving it! Just stay as active as you can for your own sake and for the sake of your baby! I absolutely don't recommend you take up an intense exersise routine, especially if that wasn't your lifestyle before but, walking daily will make you feel good!!! Good luck and let me know if I can help in any way!
To everyone else who wrote about the screening: congrats to those whose came back negative! Both of mine were negative which is great! It's absolutely a relief. To those who haven't had them yet, no worries!!! I hear of a lot of false positives happening out there so I'm sure everything will be fine!
I'm sorry but, I can't agree about the sex thing! I can't say that I turned into a nympho maniac LOL but I am a lot more sensitive and am really really really enjoying pregnanat sex since day 1! So is hubby! Hang in there girls, I keep hearing that it gets better for everyone in the second trimester.
So here are my updates: We found out Friday at our anatomy scan that we're having a healthy boy!!!!!! Both DH and I didn't care either way but I had a very strong feeling from the very beginning that I'm growing a hot dog in there and I guess everyone likes being told they're right
I'm 20 weeks and I think my stomach grew overnight tonight. All of a sudden, my sweaters are all a little too tight! I tried on like 4 different ones this morning before finding something that fits! Everyone kept telling me that will happen! LOL I can't say that I popped yet but it's deffinitely bigger today. Maybe I'm just bloaded!

Kelly my doctor hasnt even brought up the tests yet. I'm still early i guess to be having that discussion. I'll let you know when it comes up.
Thanks for keeping me in your thought Angel. That's sweet of you.
the docs office said i should get the blood test results back in a day or two so i'm patiently waiting to hear back from them.
