What have you done that is superstitious w/ this pregnancy? I know Linda had her lucky box of Tampons.

A few things I have done vs my m/c is I didn't join a DDC right away, now that I joined, I didn't bookmark it (I go to one of the other JM boards I have bookmarked first), I peed on a stick every day until I got my bloodwork, and didn't just take my positive for granted.

I know there is more, but of course now that I started this thread, I can't think of them. lol

I did not start working out until I was probably 10 or 11 weeks. I did not lift anything, no matter if it was heavy or not, had dh clean the house, and I did not tell my family or friends (those friends that are not as close) until I was 12 weeks.

I stopped lifting anything heavy at all. Made dh carry the laundry basket and didn't dtd at all in the very beginning. I also won't wear the shirt that I wore the day I found out Abby didn't have a heartbeat. Other than those I can't think of too many.

I haven't bought one single thing, I just can't bring myself to do it. I also put everything I already had in a bin for the local consignment sale, I don't want to touch any of it. I didn't tell people for quite awhile too, only my very closest girlfriends who were following my cycles with me. (teehee, my mom was PO'd that I didn't tell her right away) Oh, and my Grandmother, who I finally told at 12 weeks, refuses to say the word pregnant. She calls as says very quietly, are you still p.g.? Makes me laugh, because I'm finally getting around to saying pregnant, myself.

I can't think of anything else.

That's cute about your grandma, I also told my grandma when I was 12 weeks and her respond was, I wou;n't say anything until you get to three months, Itold her that 12 weeks was 3 months and she said, oh ok that's ok them. She takes the credit for me being pregnant because she went to pray to some saint that people go to for getting pg, fertility and that kind of stuff.
