I guess with the 30+ inches of snow we got here last week it was a good thing I didn't have to try to rush to the hospital : ) So I am just sitting at home, on leave from work already and waiting. I scheduled a C for a week after my due date just in case. So, if Shayne decides not to arrive on his own, then he will be welcomed into the world via C on 2/22. Good news is I am almost finished the nursery with all the time on my hands. Hope everyone else is doing well. I'll be sure to check in.
    Congrats Margie, that's so exciting! Are you going to post some pics of your nursery?? I know we'd all LOVE to see them =)

      Hi ladies!!! first of all CONGRATS to all of you!!!! :)

      so I went to the doc for a pre preg exam and she gave me a bunch of prenatal vitamin samples...i've heard horror stories about them, and from searching on here, it's mostly true. doc wants me to start taking them now even though we're not trying till after the wedding in sept, but i know of so many people that start them after they find out theyre pregnant and with all the side effects i just don't know? what do you think?? which one's are easiest on your tummy? thanks!

        I have just a few paranoid questions - like, shouldn't I be feeling/responding in some way by now? All I have are thse kind of weird cramps (which worry me!) occasionally, but no nausea or sickness or bloating or anythign! Do any of you remember what it was like your first few weeks??

        don't worry about it!!! I didn't really feel any different until about 4-5 months. had no sickness no cravings..nothing. every women responds to pregnancy different. you just might be the lucky one. also some women get sick later on down the line...so don't rush it.

          What horror stories have you heard about Prenatals? I never had any problems with them. I hope you don't either. I started taking them two months before I got pregnant but they say you should start three months so that you have the build of of folic acid etc in your body when you get pregnant.

              I think those are normal side effects of pregnancy... I've taken prenatal pills for almost two years now I'm not planing but my Doc told me to take them because there the best womens daily vitamins out there and I'll be ready if I change my mind or if something happens haha

              But they have never made me feel icky just have the extras you need

                Same thing with me, I took prenatals for 2 years before I got pregnant and I never had any side effects. Fish oil pills, however, made me feel completely sick to my stomach. i would take those right before I fell asleep so I wouldn't feel like throwing up as much.

                Margie- get that baby out already!!

                I LOVED my prenatals! They made me feel really good, and probably because I was then getting all the vitamins and things that I needed.
                I used Walmart's Nature Source (or something like that) brand. LOVE THEM!!

                  I've been on prenatals for over a year without any concerns. I switched over because the prenatals were less expensive than my regular multi-vitamin, and I figured when the time comes for us to pull the goalie I'll be all set to go in terms of Folic Acid. I use the Costco generic, Kirkland.
