      Hi everyone I think the last time I posted I was about 4 weeks and today I am 11 weeks and 3 days. We had our first ultra sound last night and it was amazing!!! At first the baby was very still but then it went crazy, kicking and moving it's body. I couldn't feel it but seeing it was unbelievable the doctor warned me that our baby will most likely be very active and I should feel in the nexy month or two. We are sticking to the original due date which is August 1st. We are so excited. Congratulations everyone.
      Does anyone have any weird cravings? I don't know when it starts I read as early as 2-3 weeks but I really want to eat mayonnaise. Isn't that nasty, the thought of it on a blt makes me soooo hungry. I don't eat it often because it's not that healthy but once and a while I give in it's really yummy!

        Congrats Bisha on your baby boy!!!!
        I had my appt today and everything was great. I told her that the Ultrasound Tech already told me it was a girl and that I wasn't convinced. She said there is no way she could have at 12 weeks. Exactly what I expected. So I will find out for sure in 5 more weeks.
        GeminiLibra how are you feeling? Hope everything is going well. Glad to hear your ultrasound went well. It is amazing when you see the tiny little baby. Did they give you any pictures? And the only thing that I am craving is salty stuff. I know it's not good so I'm trying to stay away as much as I can.

          Has anyone heard from Sarah? I think she was about 2 weeks ahead of me, so if it hasn't happened already, it has to be any day now.

          I had an appt. this morning.... I am not dialated yet, but my cervix is softening. She also mentioned that the baby's head is really low... I don't know if that means she "dropped"?
          She also said my cervix is really high.... for some reason I thought that dropped too nearing the due date. Oh well... .I guess I can expect another 2-3 weeks before she decides to make her debut!

            As of yesterday Sarah had not had Lucon yet. She has a doc appt. today. I think they are going to induce next week sometime if she hasn't had the baby.

            That's great that your cervix is softening...your body is working...how are you feeling?

              I feel good... not sleeping the best though. I am just really anxious! I think I just need to relax, and enjoy these next few weeks by myself, as I know everything is about to change. It is so hard though!

              Luke is so cute!

                Hey girls. I did get the results back for the blood tests and they were good but unfortunately over the weekend I started to miscarry. But we will be trying again probably in the summer. I'll be checking this thread to keep track of how y'all are doing. Thanks for everything.

                  I am so sorry to hear that Danielle... a few of us have gone thru that (I for one) so if you have any questions... feel free to ask.
                  Take care.

                    I have a question....
                    Are any of you ladies receiving paid maternity leave? I am taking off 12 weeks, but they are all unpaid. I have mentioned that we do not receive any paid time off for maternity to a few friends, and they thought that was crazy. But, our office manager said that a lot of places don't offer paid time off. I can use my vacation time, and sick if I choose.
                    I did read online that about 39% only receive it paid.

                    I get 6 weeks paid and then I can take an additional 6 weeks not paid. I know a lot of people who have to take it all not paid though. I think I'm one of the lucky few.
