I have a scale that not only measures fat but water as well. I noticed that I was starting to retain alot of water, and 2 days later I had what seemed to be an unusual amount of saliva. Soon after (like a few more days) I started to feel sick and achy all over. At this point I hadn't even missed my cycle. I decided to go out and buy both regular and digital tests. The regular one only showed 1 dark line, and the other I had to really look for like a ghost line. I thought it was just my imagination, so I waited until the next morning to take the other regular test with my first morning urine. But same thing, only this time, the other line was more like a shadow. The next day (which now would've been 5 days before my missed period) I decided to take the digital, and it read clear as day, PREGNANT! I called my doc took another urine test and also a blood test. They called that night to tell me congratulations. I was still 3 days before my missed period. I was literally only 3 weeks along. Now I am 37 weeks. It was a great thing to find out so early, but it has made for a super long pregnancy. LOL!

They immediately start getting bigger and your nipples will darken as well.I started getting bigger glands probably about 3 weeks after i found out i was pregnant and my breasts were a dead give away they got huge quick! I went from a 34 D to a 37 DD and now i can no longer fit i a double D with out hanging out and i am 24 weeks pregnant and petite! They are out of control and i am often asked if i have implants! It angers me when i am asked that! The breasts are definitely the first sign then the missed period! If your breasts hurt even to be touched or bumped then you are more then likely pregnant and it only gets worse the further along you get! Mine feel like rocks.Just make sure when you take a pregnancy test t use first morning urine because hcg levels are higher in the morning because your urine is not diluted with things you drank through out the day.
good luck to you!

I totally hear you!!!! I am 34 weeks with a girl and my son is 23 months old. This second pregnancy was so much more difficult. I was sick more at the beginning, I had to go to the emergency room twice with bleeding in my first trimester.... I can't sleep, I developed restless leg syndrome, my back is killing me (I think I will be crippled after this), and yes, I am huge - definetally bigger than I was with my first one (I can't fit in any of my old pregnancy clothes by now)... I am also waddling like a duck and I am terrified of the labor...looking at this pregnancy - what else is going to happen???? (scream....ripping my hair out...lol)

The first one is about the short term disability and the second is info on the FMLA. Each employer has their own forms though so you may want to contact your HR dept. for the proper forms. I am 34 weeks and my last day is the 28th of Dec. I just filled these 2 forms out myself. My company goes through a certain financial group for the short term disability that they had to file the claim through. As for the FMLA, I signed a customized form that my company made for themselves. Every company is different so I don't think you can find a universal form for either of these two, but hopefully this info on these forms could help.

I also just had a miscarriage so I feel your pain. I am so sorry for your loss. I was 8 weeks. I have a 4 year old little girl:) Well I would say you have a great chance of having a great pregnancy after a misscarriage. My Dr. told me that 6 out of 10 pregnancies end in a misscarriage so you are so not alone. What I think is just keep taking your prenatal vitamins and eating right. Before you TTC again though you might want to try to lose some weight since you said you was obese. Just to make sure you are healthy yourself when you get pregnant .
