Hello everyone.  My name is Mel, I have two LOs and DH and I are planning on TTC again in the fall.

I have been on here before, it took us 16 months to get pregnant with our 2nd child.  I am trying to do all of the right things before we start trying this time. 

Although it was a long road it tought me alot about my body and to be greatfull for all of the things that you have now and appreciate the new things as they come. 

Good luck and baby dust to all.

Hi, I'm Jaime and I'm new to the group.  I'm still trying to find my way around the website.  Are our comments what make up the group?  I just want to be sure I understand.  Thanks.

@ Jaqui - Antibacterial soap is very bad for our health and the environment. It creates super bugs that cannot be killed. Not all bacteria is bad, but that stuff kills even the good bacteria, so it can actually MAKE you sick. Very bad stuff. Here's a link:

@ Emily - CONGRATS!! Wonderful news (: Hope for a healthy and happy 9 months <3

@ Jenny- Thanks for sharing all your baby knowledge with me I appreciate it a lot! I'm also having a hard time eating I just seem to have no appetite at all. Just curious why you suggest to wash my hands with soap and not antibacterial?

@ Jaqui - I am almost 10 weeks and I still don't have energy! My hubby has been cooking and cleaning pretty much every day. You are growing a human being in there, it's very exhausting (: As for being sick, I've already been sick twice. Once was just bad allergies I think. I also got my first cold sore since I was 12 years old. Eat as healthy as you can, continue your prenatal vitamins, maybe add some vitamin C and D. I'm still having a hard time eating much, so I am making sure to supplement.  Our immune systems are a bit weaker during pregnancy, so it's common to get sick. Make sure you wash your hands frequently with REGULAR soap and warm water. No antibacterial! Hope you start feeling better momma!

Thanks Jenny!:) I was wondering if anyone out there knows if it's a bad sign if I'm 6 weeks pregnant and if I have a cold and just feel like I don't have much energy?

You are very welcome! I've had tons of questions too. I am like you, I want to make sure I'm doing everything right!

Cramping is totally normal. I was freaking out when I started cramping! As long as you aren't bleeding, it's normal. There's a lot going on in there! I am a little past 8 weeks and still get occasional cramping. It's just the uterus getting bigger (:
