Just found this community, so I thought I would join:

Name? Melissa
Location? Maitland, FL (near Orlando)
Baby's name & birthday? Arianna Marie, 3/31/2008 (induced a week early)
Baby's birth stats? 6 lbs 14 ozs, 21.5 inches long
Baby's current stats? 8 lbs 3 ozs...do not know length measurement
Is he/she your first baby? Yes
How are you enjoying motherhood? SO HARD, but glad I still had her!
What do you most hope to get out of this community? Support from other mothers that are dealing with the same things I am.
Anything else about yourself we should know? I have been married since 4/24/05, and am not sure if we will try for another one in the future since I am already 32 years old.

EDIT: Had her length wrong...corrected it.

Kevin Robert


One month stats

We just got back from our one month appointment, and Kevin is growing like a maniac. He was a big baby anyway, but all the breastmilk must be paying off because he's now 11 pounds 6 ounces and 24 inches and the doctor says he's perfect. It's nice to hear that every now and then. :)

First update!

How far along are you?
30 weeks! I am probably the least far along here.. :)

What symptoms are you experiencing?
Oy, the mood swings..

How are you feeling?
Great pregnancy wise. All of the map in other terms. We still have yet to find a house after 8 months of searching. My college is really being in a pain in the butt.. and my toddler just *loves* to push my "crazy pregnant lady!" button. Which is probably due to this new found winter tundra we are going through. dear calgon, please to be taking me away

Any Dr. Appointments / ultrasounds / tests this past week and how did they go?
I really do need to get a hold of my midwife..

Any Dr. Appointments / ultrasounds / tests this coming week?
We'll see! I've been doing my own prenatal care because both of us have been so busy. I've been trying to schedule an appointment for soon, but have been unable to reach her so far. She's extremely busy.

Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc)?
Still looking for a house. Since I moved with my first son when I was 9+ months pregnant I was pretty strong that I didn't want to do it this time . So naturally... keep your fingers crossed for us please!

Any questions you want to ask?
Have any of you gathered stuff for your birth yet?

I know we have a few home birthers here, but this can apply to the hospital too. ;)

And, are any one of you having trouble picking out a name? We've got one solid for a boy.. but for a girl we are totally clueless...

(no subject)

I am 17w4d and I havent felt even a lick of movement yet.  Is this odd?  I have been reading for the past 2-3 weeks that I should feel movement "anytime" and I havent at all.  First thing the nurse asked me on Wednesday was if I've felt anything and I said no, she was surprised and said "oh... well I'm sure you'll feel it soon."  I dont know... this is my first pregnancy and I am not overweight so there isnt a ton of room to move around in there and me miss it.  Perhaps I'm just paranoid.  Has everyone felt their baby move but me? 

Thanks so much for the help everyone.  I dont want to be one of those paranoid first time Moms but I guess I am just kinda anxious to feel it so I know its there... idk... I'm weird like that.  Anyway, thanks again for all the advice and help.  I really do love this community!
