Hi Ladies,

So, I took a pregnancy test in the beginning of Sept. (3 of them) and they all turned out positive. I believe I'm pregnant however, I just am not feeling very pregnant. I'm still nursing my almost 2 year old - and my supply is way down - which is a sign - but belly wise - nothing. My uterus does not feel any bigger at all. My clothes are kind of tight but we just moved and I gained like 10lbs in the move. I don't see the midwife until next Tuesday....

Anyone else ever have the same issue with how many times you have been pregnant?

Thanks in advance!!

Congratulations! I am pg with #8, too, due next month.

I couldn't feel my uterus for a long time because of all the fat and skin leftover from the last 7 babies. I still have this coating of soft fat over the uterus. It would be funny if it were someone else.

I remember with #1 having this little lump just over the pubic bone. I haven't seen that pubic bone in 15 years.

Welcome to the large family board. You will love us.

I haven't had 8 (yet) but with my 6th, I never looked pregnant. I just looked fat. I didn't have many symptoms either. I could probably have hidden it from everyone. If/when I get pg with our 7th, I'm gonna see how long I can hide it for. I bet no one will even notice.

Thanks! and Thanks for the Welcome!

I'm just freaking out a little because I feel like I have a flat belly, like I can't really feel my uterus - and I keep thinking that it should be feelable.

Well, keeping my fingers crossed everything is ok...
Thanks Again!

It took me longer to show with #6 than the first 5 even though I was 45lbs lighter!

Welcome and congrats on your pregnancy!
Mummy to 7,
