Congrats on your baby girl. I'm really glad to hear your son is doing well with the transition too. I'm afraid my Anna is going to have a hard time with the new baby once he gets here. She is really thrilled now but I'm still worried. Afterall she has been the baby for 13 yrs now.

You can lose that 60#. Take it one day at a time. I have to have a csection as well with mine. I'm hoping to get the doctors approval to start working out again a few weeks after he is born - however lightly. Better than none at all.

Have a great day. I'm off to get some much needed work done.

I'm back, it's been a week and a day since having my Daughter. I am feeling pretty good, I have lost 16 pounds of the baby fat, only counting 2 because I weighed myself for the first time after arriving home from hospital and again this morning. I had a c-section and am suppose to take it easy all month but honestly feel good enough to start walking on a treadmill at least but have to wait til Thursday for Dr. approval. Life with my daughter isn't near as hectic as I thought. My Son is almost 3 and so independent he practically takes care of himself when I am busy with baby, but I always include hum so he doesn't feel neglected, I worried about that! I am so ready to do this, I want to lose these 60 once and for all and this time I am having a tubal, no more babies after I lose a little weight again! At 44 I think I am as blessed as I could hope for with my beautiful healthy children! :)

Waiting for my mom to come over to go walking. I am giving her 10 more min before I leave without her. I missed the last two days due to weather and a my Anna's bday party at my moms. Tracked my food today and am in range and am impatiently waiting to get my walk in now.

IT'S A BOY!!! Looks like we are having a baby boy this go round. I was excited after I found out for sure its a boy I went and bought gender spacific clothes for him. How happy I was looking for clothes for my new little man. Now I'm washing and puting them in the drawers according to size. I only bought newborn and 0-3 months so far. Now that I know what we are having it will be harder not to buy things but I'm going to try to refrain since my friends will prob buy some and I don't want to many. I found a few other things here and there that I decided that I want now too. Since my mom and SIL are going to throw me a shower I can put some of the things on the list for them to pick up too. This will help me alot.

Talk to you later. Hope you are enjoying your day.

Hi everyone. Just poppin in to see how everyone was doing. I am happy to say that I have started a streek of walking finally. I got in 5 days now and I have gotten 5 days of tracking my food. I have alot of issues closer to the evening after dinner nibbling. I will have to watch that. I am now 20 weeks come Tuesday and Monday I get to go to the doctor and see the baby. Hopefully the baby will cooperate with us and show if its a boy or girl. Anna so wants a sister. She said it took 13 yrs for me to have another one so it shuold be a girl. LOL ( I wasn't planning to have anymore I was content with what I had) This week I"m going to aim to get in atleast 6 glasses of water a day. It is 3 more than I normally do.

I hope you all have a nice relaxing Sunday. emoticon

Hows everything with everyone? I got in a 36 min walk today and it felt good. I was really hot by the time I got home. Still drinking water can't seem to get enough at the moment.

Hope you all are having a great evening!! emoticon

ASEXYWITCH - How have you been feeling lately? Hopefully everything is going well with you.

I'm super excited and have to tell someone....I ordered baby bedding that was lost and then put on B/O without a ship date. I canceled and found a better deal the other day. I got confirmation with tracking number and today looked at progress.....it will be here today instead of Wed. YIPPEE!!! I'm super excited. Next week I'll be taking kids to do their school clothes shopping and while we are I'm going to go and take a peek at a few places for my prego clothes. I just need a couple pairs of jeans maybe one pair of shorts and a few tops. I may even go and look at the tops Walmart has in the bigger sizes.

Have a great day!!

That would be cool if I get more than 4 ultrasounds. I'll let you know what goes on tomorrow at the dr office. Glad to hear you are healing well. My babies heart rate is 166 currently. I'm hoping to hear it tomorrow. Guess we will find out then.

We have our grandson (4) for a month and boy is he a handful. He is adjusting well to the difference in households. I'm excited to have him. I haven't seen him for a year. Hoping to get him again next summer as well. Hubby has been wishing for a girl from the get go and now that we have Gabriel I figured he would have changed his mind but he hasn't. He still wants a girl. My Anna is excited she wants a girl too. LOL I'm so hoping to see what the sex is as soon as possible.

Drove the Jeep a few places today since I had to take today off....works just fine now. Still going to trade Jeeps just incase. Don't want to get stranded on the high way. Have a good evening!!

Bummer on the car situation, especially in this hot weather, you don't want to be pregnant and stranded in it! I am surprised if you are over 35 you aren't having more Ultrasounds, with my Son at 41 I had 10 and with this baby at least 6 already even before my complication, which is healing and the bleeding has stopped, had a US today and baby was really moving around, My Dr. actually got a kick out of it and made me feel like she was expecting something bad instead! :( Well I don't go in again for 2 weeks rather than twice a week another good sign Doc must think things will be ok. However I am on bed rest still for these two weeks and will have to remain very careful the remainder of my pregnancy. I'm thinking this is a girl with all the myths I read and the difference in this pregnancy than my with my Son, for instance with him I craved Jalapenos, this one sweets, with my Son his heartbeat stayed around 130 I believe, this one upper 150's. ;) I don't care either way what I have as long as it is healthy, but I am curious to see if these myths somewhat come out true.

Looks like I will be driving my hubbies Jeep to work tomorrow. I was on my way to work this morning and it overheated on me. He had to rescue me last night as well. Last night he fixed the hose that blew but we never did look inside the radiator. This morning it took a jug of water (empty milk jug) and a jug of antifreeze to fill up the radiator and overflow. It could have been ugly. So far hubby thinks I didn't blow the head gasket since there didn't seem to be water in the oil. Fingers crossed I was smart and listented to the sounds of the Jeep and my instincts to turn it off when I did.

Tomorrow is my 12 week check up. What do they do at this appt? Do I get to hear the heart beat? I don't think I get a ultrasound since I will have one at 16, 20, and 24 months. I was hoping to get the bedding I bought today since I had to take off but NOOOOO!!! If it isn't here tomorrow I will have to call. They took the money but I haven't seen anything yet. I'm a bit bummed. Well I'm off to get some cleaning done in the house and maybe some weeding (in the shade).

ASEXYWITCH - How are you doing?

Thank You! As expected, Doc has me on strict bed rest and hormones to help strengthen my Placenta. I am now calling around for a Nanny/Housekeeper to come three times a week to help me do things hubby can't or wont. ;) Will keep you posted, I am going to the OB office twice a week now til healed and bleeding completely stops. And, yes, please do not lift anything over 15 pounds! Stay healthy! emoticon

O my. I'm sorry about what is happening and I'm glad you went to the ER. When you go to the OB let me know what they say. I'll be thinking of you. emoticon Makes me realize I shouldn't be lifting my 4yr old grandson anymore. He prob ways close to that. I don't lift anything overly heavy anymore at work either. Hang in there and try to keep your spirits up.

Yesterday I had a gush of blood come out when I went to the bathroom! Went to ER, found out I have a tear in my Placenta probably from picking up my sleeping 45 pound Son up off the floor. I am on strict bed rest for a long time! The US tech said to me "Well, your baby is still alive and his/her heartbeat is 157" He said it just like that, can you believe it?! I am 15 weeks along and have a 50/50 chance of carrying to term a healthy baby! I now have a chance also of getting blood clots, infections or my baby losing oxygen or nutrients along with tearing it more if I am not very careful! I have been lightly spotting all day today. I can't even describe how I am feeling at this point, I cried enough yesterday to last a life time! Sorry to share such scary sad news! :( I have an appt. tomorrow with MY OB and will learn more.

Mowed part of the yard yesterday and planning to walk to the park tonight to see my friends daughter play softball and see my kids. They hang out with them most of the summer which was fine but lately since I'm all up and down alot I feel alittle bummed that they aren't with me. Then I think theyd just be fighting so I'm better off. LOL Not sure really how I feel about it.

Next weekend we are going to visit the in laws and pick up my grandbaby. I can't wait!! I miss him lots. They moved to Arkansas this past summer again and his other gma will have him in PA so we will be picking him up there instead of them dropping him off at the house. Makes only sense to me. Fingers crossed everything goes smoothly. I'm planning a stop at Penns Cave on the way there or on the way back hopefully hubby will be able to take a day off so we can do so. Other than that I'm planning a day trip with kids and Gabriel to the Safari Wildlife Park a few hrs away from where we live. Never been there so I think theyd get a kick out of it.

I was aiming to get up at 6am to see if I can get a small walk in this morning but NOPE slept in again. So now I have to move my unmotivated rump tonight. I feel sleepy today but I have been sitting in front of the computer all day here at work. I need to get up and walk around. Todays goal is to get a small walk in if I feel up to it but absolutly need to mow atleast the front and side yards before we get overgrown with weeds and grass. LOL

Didn't do much yesterday. Picked up one of the kids from my friends and left the other to spend the night there. The oldest is babysitting all day today until tomorrow afternoon. Then we are off to our friends for a cookout and swim. Sunday we are planning to go to Baylors Beach (man made beach) with the kids. Monday relaxing and Tuesday gonna see the baby for the first time. Goal is to take a walk today for awhile sometime after dinner. Maybe my Anna will come along she can ride her bike while I walk. We will find out later I guess. Better get back to work.

Have a great day!!

Feeling better every day. I need to get off the computer more than I do while I'm here at work and walk around to keep me energized. Last night I got alot of good cleaning done. I am in the process of moving toys for the grandbabies to invade hubbys space in the basement and my scrapbook things up to our bedroom. So last night I had to clean up and move around somethings in the bedroom to make room for the things that need to go in. Tonight I will be attempting to move some things in so that my stepdaughter can start working on the spare room. She is getting evicted so baby doesn't have to stay downstairs and since she is the oldest she gets to move. Hoping by Sunday she will be starting to move her things in. Then off to the next project.....lol

Hope you have a great day today. I'm taking Tuesday and Friday off next weeks so I only have a 2 day week next week. YIPPEE!!! I really don't want to work anymore but I need to keep the money rolling in for awhile then we have to have the big conversation later.

Afternoon. Just wanted to pop in and say Hi!! I'm at work wishing to be anywhere but here. I'm alittle tired today but still feel much better than I have the last couple weeks. I believe I am 8 weeks along now with a tentative due date of 2/10/12. I will have to have a CSection so I will be able to get ready in advance this time. No suprises hopefully this go round.

Have a great day!!

I haven't been active on Spark at all this past week, I have had a bad sore throat and cold now for over a week! I have tried everything that is safe for me and baby, on 2nd round of antibiotics still no progress, I am getting worried! How much is too much Vitamin C while pregnant? a Friend suggested taking 3-5 500mg tablets a day! I was drinking boiled lemon juice for days since I read lemons have more c than any other fruit.

Ok so while getting my tooth extraction today, tornado sirens were going off! They quickly yanked it out and we went to the basement/garage! My husband and Son were in the car and they came in the office building because police were driving down the street with their megaphones saying take cover immediately! Very scary! Finally home safe 3 hours later!

I love the new Add a food section on the Nutrition tracking page! Especially the add favorites where you can check off more than one at a time and actually post them individually as breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks! Brilliant!

Still amazed at the news I received on Friday! Every morning I wake up I think it was all a dream. This is going to be the longest week, waiting for my first actual Dr. visit. Friday I just peed in a cup, got a script for pre natals and that was it, I was out the door!

I was formally goodriddance 60 who started this team years ago. Then became minus60byo6 just in Jan. this year, only to recently reevaluate my goals and dates to Halloween and became asexywitch. Now today I found out I am pregnant again at 43, almost 44 years old! So, I realize this team has been inactive for some time, but I'm here now if anyone is needing support! emoticon

Thanks. When I turned 40 and basically gave up, that is when I got the shock of my life and my little blessing. Don't stress, have Faith and if adopting is your calling that is fantastic. I wanted to adopt after having my son, but unfortunately my husband and I are no longer together. I guess me getting pregnant at my age and especially his, 51, it took it's toll. But, he is still a big part of my sons life.
I wish you well!

No one wanted to take over as Team Leader while I was MIA? My son is now 9 months old! For those about to be or are first timers you'll see the little ones will keep you busy 24/7! I don't think I have slept in almost 2 years now. Didn't sleep while pregnant because I just couldn't believe I was and was so scared I would do something wrong. And now just don't sleep because it is all about my Angel, I stare at him while he sleeps most of all! ;)

Hi Lori, Wow sounds like you have been through a lot. I did the hormones with my first husband and all that happened was I grew hair everywhere, seriously and had to stop. I miraculously and finally got pregnant at 41 on my own, after losing 40 pounds here on spark. Wishing you well and success at all your goals.

Hi everyone,

I'm new. I just turned 36. I have a 12 yr old girl and have been on the sperm donor hunt for 2 and a half years to try for a 2nd child. Finally found a donor... went through a fertility clinic to help regulate my cycles (they used to vary from 4 - 6 weeks). The hormones seemed to regulate them to between 4 weeks 4 days to 5 weeks 5 days (mmm not much regulation). Anyway I was on hormones for 5 cycles and inseminated for 2 (unsuccessfully). While on hormone treatment I found I started putting on weight and when I stopped hormone treatment my period went really weird (One 7week cycle which I had to use other hormones to then end the cycle and the last one (without any hormones) was 10 weeks). It is very frustrating as I'm not sure whether to try again with hormones or give up.

I have stopped for now and am focusing on trying to lose the 10kg I put on since starting fertility treatment (I have gone from 61kg to 71kg).

Anyway I'd love to chat to anyone else who found they put on weight after starting fertility treatment. What did you do?

Hi and Welcome. My story, I wasn't regular because of my weight, was told I wouldn't have children, lost 40 pounds and boom pregnant on my 41st B-day! Best wishes to you.

Sorry I have been MIA again, rented out my house so I am moving, seperated from husband AGAIN but for the last time. So I have tons going on but managing to not overeat, don't have time to eat. :(

Hi everyone I see my last post I said I would be MIA and even then I didn't see how much time and energy it would take to keep my Lil Darlin happy! ;)
Sleep when he sleeps, hmmm, then when does anything else get done? I have been spending time getting it all worked out and a schedule where I can make everyone happy and now it is time to add myself in the mix again. And, as I say on my Spark Page, it is time to get real, I can no longer use the excuse I just had a baby after 31/2 months, now can I? I almost weigh what I did at 9months pregnant!! I went to a family gathering with my son for the first time yesterday and everyone was taking pictures and showing them to me. I was so disgusted and depressed with myself. Also, I have no pics of me and my son because I hate taking pics and that makes me sad that Rylan wouldn't have any of me and him but of him and everyone else. Well enough is enough, I am back on this wagon because it isn't just about or for me now!

Well since my last post I had my little one on Groundhog Day! 2-2! at 6:22pm. He weighed in at 8lbs. 7oz. Since then I swear he weighs 20 pounds, really given Mama's arms a work out! I had to have a emergency C-section because he was coming and I was only dilated to 2 after being induced. I currently have an infection where my stitches were, they have since dissolved but now I am set back in healing time! I did lose the 22 ponds I gained during the pregnancy though that is the good news. So getting back on track to lose my original goal before becoming pregnant as soon as I am off bed rest. Anyway I was wondering if anyone is interested in becoming a Team Leader with me since I am basically MIA for awhile. Let me know and I will add you. Thanks!

Hi everyone! Wow this team has really grown! Well I am officially 9 months pregnant today! Due to being high risk though I will find out Monday when I will possibly be induced or can expect to have my little guy. Before we were thinking in the next couple weeks if all stays stable. I have been going to the Dr. twice a week now for awhile. I have 2 NST's a week in Labor and Delivery and then see my Doc for reg. check ups once a week. I have had 5 sonograms and having my last one Monday. I will stay in touch til delivery then get back to you all asap after that. Wishing you all well! Take Care.

PS: When I stopped thinking and stressing about getting pregnant, that's when it happened for me! Good Luck to you!

I know what you mean. You chart so you will know when it's supposed to come and when it does, you get disappointed and start feeling like you are setting yourself up for failure. At least that's how I feel when I see it. I think I'm going to just stop looking for it.

HI! Hope that you all doing well.
I am always very nervous before I have my period (for about 10 days). This is a period of time when I am hoping that I am pregnant and imagine that I feel sick, that my tummy is strange and things like that.
And then I get my period! And next mounth the same things all over again. emoticon

Well I am on round 2 of antibiotics! They now gave me Ceftin which has had some reactions to persons allergic to penicillin, which I am, so I was very weary of starting but I did as I just want to get rid of this congestion so bad. On day 2 and doing ok so far. Went to the Dr. yesterday and they hooked me up to a monitor and again the baby just moves and moves, but I was finally able to distinguish the baby moving vs other feelings. ;)

Are you taking any multi-vitamins? Elevit are meant to be really good? Maybe they will help give you a bit more energy? Get lots of bed rest. I hope you feel better soon. emoticon

I have a cold and don't know what to do for it but liquids and bed rest. I am so tired all the time, coughing and sneezing, my poor LO probably isn't feeling to good either and I am worried about that!

Boy do I have pregnancy brain! This morning I forgot my customers home alarm code after 10 years of service so the alarm is blaring, the security company is calling and finally the cops show up and I have to clear everything up. My mind just went blank! Then I am in the drug store and go to use my savings card on my key ring and no keys! I locked them in the car and had to have my husband come open the doors for me! I think I am going to go crawl in a hole and stay there til my appt. Tuesday just to be safe! Goodness!

I keep losing weight! I know I am getting enough calories I just don't think they are healthy ones. I lost my motivation to cook like I use to so the easier the meal the better, but also the easier the junkier it is! I also, although my stomach is protruding quite a bit keep waking up sleeping on it! UGH! All these things to be concerned about are adding stress on top of them!

Into my 2nd Trimester and I am bored! The only thing telling me I am pregnant is my tight fitting clothes! I am full of energy and don't know what to do with it. I can't get down and dirty and really clean,(move furniture and such) I can't paint, all I can really do is organize cabinets and drawers. It has been raining here 48 hours straight now so walking to burn energy is out and frankly I am scared to do any other exercises. I clean houses for a living but will probably have to quit by the end of next month as I have a bad right knee and can't bend down and soon won't be able to bend over. Then what will I do with my days? I have started working on my registry for my shower but that is a whole other topic I will be starting soon, because it isn't as easy or fun as you might think or as it should be.

I am having a real hard time with constipation. I am not going to the bathroom but every 4th day if that! No wonder I feel so bloated and am losing my appetite. Don't want to put in what isn't coming out!Going to have to get something OTC today! My Prenatal's even have a SS in them not doing any good! I am also feeling really stuffy and have a slight earache. I was really hoping this 5th month would ease up a little on symptoms, no such luck so far.

That is good to hear more positive news. They always told me I wouldn't get pregnant because of my weight and cysts. But they were wrong! I have come across articles about herbal therapies, can't hurt right! I am wishing you well! Keep in touch!

A pretty much non existant SC from DH. My side I'm expecting some issues too. My sis is going into surgery on Monday re: missing ovary etc. I've still got to get my tests done to see how I'm going. But as I said upon my last visit to the docs they were a lot more positive. I'm just going to get all the basics sorted out as the doc's won't give anything extra to boost our chances until at least 6mths of trying. I've got a friend though who can probably get her hands on some herbal therapies that might help. I'm looking into this too.

What reason/s did the Doc give as to why you couldn't conceive? Also don't let them scare you by saying your age makes you a high risk! I am 41 and I am refusing all the tests they are trying to throw at me now that I am pregnant. Need some more support I have a team on babyfit.com too. My Id is maidenlane on there. There are also alot of other great teams!

Good morning, thanks for the welcome prezzie. My husband & I are trying to start a family. I'm a bit nervous about the problems to be expected at my age. I'm 36 and I know there are more risks involved. The doc's are checking both of us out to see what they can do as recent tests told them it was not possible for us to have kids, but on our last visit, they changed their mind and said we now probably could. So we are going to give it our best shot! I can't answer any of your questions below yet, but hope to in the near future. I'm trying to get myself into the best shape (nutrition/fitness) possible so that when I fall pregnant I can give our baby the best possible chance. Hop you have a great day! emoticon

I think I am feeling a little fluttering! ;)I have been extremely tired again and sleeping up to 12 hours. 5 days til my next sonogram so excited I can't stand it! I had to call for a different prenatal script because the one I was taking made me burp up the worst metal taste! I tried taking it with food, without food, as prescribed nothing helped. I know it is my vitamins too because when I switched up and took the sample ones they gave me that taste went away. I requested one with a gentle stool softener which is very much needed!
Questions:
What symptoms are you having?
What cravings are you having if any?
Anything you use to love, turning your stomach now?
As for me, my current symptoms are highs and lows, lots of energy or totally wiped out to where I barely make it to the bed and I am already asleep.
My weird cravings have been really spicy foods, for instance Jalapeņos which before I wouldn't go near and sweets, which before getting pregnant I would go for a bag of chips before anything sweet.
Nothing ever has really turned my stomach,I can eat or smell just about anything, but everything tastes so bland, guess that's why I am craving the spicy stuff to get some flavor going on.

In my 15th week. Looking foward to my next sonogram, Mmaybe finaly it will all become more real when I see little arms and legs. I am still in shock that I am pregnant at all! Most possible members for my team are probably on Babyfit.com but I wanted to stay in touch with everyone on Spark, because it keeps me on track to eat healthy and soon enough I will need to lose the baby fat!

Didn't sleep well at all last night! Can't seem to find a comfortable position and it doesn't help my bed is terrible! I'm thinking about buying a pregnancy pillow to support my back when I sleep on my left side which I have read I should be doing. It's tough because I have been a stomach sleeper my whole life. They are around $50, but will be worth it if it actually helps! I'm hoping other Spark members find my team and join soon! ;)
