    For ENA moms and moms-to-be!!

    Over the last few months, I have noticed that I am by no means the only pregnant ENA member

    So, I thought it would be nice to have a central topic for us 'moms-to-be' to talk about all kinds of pregnancy related stuff. From nausea to first kicks, from shopping maternity clothes to decorating the baby room.

    Welcome mommies!

    I am so excited for you SamiJayne!!

    I have to deliver in 16 weeks??? OMG lol. Time is flying!! First I was counting days and now I am starting to get a bit... nervous!

    No swollen ankles so far, I think at this moment the back pain and ligament pain are my worst complaint, I am much happier than I was in the first trimester (the nausea... Still very tired though.

    No, we don't want to know the gender before the bean is born. We have nice names for both. It's good we have similar taste, because finding the boy name was very difficult. But I dreamed of having a toddler boy with honey-blond hair like me and big eyes like my husband But I have no clue whatsoever...

    My only advice is to get your rest before the babies born. I never knew how much a person can be deprived of sleep the first couple of months!

    Congrats! In the end it is all worth it!

    It's funny because here at work, all I get is "be sure you finish most of your dissertation BEFORE the baby is due". Which excludes the getting rest option all together.



    Ah, Ac, I hope for you it will never come. I know plenty of women who really had a relatively easy first trimester. I wasn't one of those, but it could be soo much worse. I never had the 'executive' kind of nausea, I just thought that everything smelled horrible (omg supermarkets, cooking smells,... people in general... and that made me feel very sick.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for ya!
