dragonbaby, that's exactly why I'm not going to go for a confirmation blood and/or pee test at my PCP's office. I don't want to deal with her comments. The midwife I'm going to see is awesome, though.
I can't wait for my first appt! I'm going to call on Friday morning.
And totally feel you on the family judgemental thing. I think people are way too quick to judge and tell people when the "right" time to have a baby is, which is completely different for everybody. I'm afraid my parents are going to disown me. -__- My mother a) thinks I shouldn't have kids before the age of 30 and b) thinks I need to be graduated/well into a career/married first. I'll be 23 a week from today, so I already missed the mark pretty far with her first requirement. I have a great job (as does my BF), great health insurance (my delivery will be 100% covered!), a nice, big apartment with a room for the baby, and I'll be done with school in early December, but none of that will be good enough for my parents because it's not what THEY see as an ideal time to have a baby. As for the married part, my BF and I talked about it before we started TTC and decided that we'd rather get married a little later, with older children, so they can be part of the wedding, and see how much mommy and daddy really love each other.
So yeah, needless to say, I completely dread telling my family.
We just told my BF's mom and sister today, though, and they both screamed and are so excited! I'm glad at least one family is happy

I've got lots of creamy CM, I seem to get hungry sooner after eating and my BBs are looking fuller than usual (though not very sore).
This describes me EXACTLY!!! I got no more than four straight hours of sleep last night. I kept waking up and couldn't get comfortable, it was awful. I'm so bloated as well - it looks like my belly is 11-12 weeks now, instead of 4 weeks! And yesterday at work, I felt REALLY wet (like how it feels when AF starts) and I ran to the bathroom freaking out, expecting to find blood. Turns out it was just massive amounts of creamy/wet CM. I almost cried from relief, LOL.
As for the pregnancy boards here, they have a different board for ladies due each month. I've been posting over there in the December due dates board, you should come join!
My login from here didn't work though, so I had to make another account. I just used the same username.
Also, how did the dr appt go?
