  • just stopping in to say hi to all my IFVs!  been super busy with stuff so I have not had time to respond to many posts lately. But am always reading everyone's updates. 

    But update on Cassie, the neurologist is super happy with her progress so far and her milestones.  We are currently watching her weight since she is a very petite little lady.  Has always been in the 3rd to 5th percentile but now she has fallen off the chart, so we just have to see how things go between now and the next appointment.

  •  How are you doing? I am doing well. I feel like I may get a few good weeks in, before the uncomfortableness of 3rd tri hits. (Everyone keeps trying to tell me how bad it can be...I think I can handle anything if I'm not vomiting 4-6 times a day!!Stick out tongue)

    I've been packing lots. We start moving tomorrow into our new place! Party!!!

     How far along are you? 24 weeks 2 days!

    When is your next dr's appt? In 2 hours. Just a regular old check up with my OB.

    Have you had any food aversions? Pretty much everything until a few weeks ago!

    food cravings? Not many yet. Nothing specific at least; but it's nice to finally feel hungry at lunch and dinner time...I've put on about 8 pounds since my last OB appt. Guess that's what happens when you actually eat!

  • Q'sOTW: 

    How are you doing?  I have psychologically good and bad days.  I can't shake the bleeding scare I had at 20 weeks.... Physically, I'm a little tired and lower back pain is starting to get to an annoying level.

    How far along are you?  I'll be 22w tomorrow, each day closer to 24 makes me happy.  Then I'll be counting the days until 28w, then 32w, then 36, then c-section day.  

     When is your next dr's appt? I see my OB next Monday and my peri the week after that.  So two weeks until I get to see my little girl again.  AND I really want to see MY peri.  I have not seen him since the day before my bleeding scare at my a/s.  Not that I don't trust the two that I've seen (hospital and his partner) but I don't trust anyone as much as MY peri.  Is that crazy?

    Have you had any food aversions? Not really - I get in moods where I'm hungry but I don't feel like eating anything.  

    food cravings?  Anything I can put sour cream on. . . like nachos and tacos!!

    How far along are you?  A little over 17 weeks

     When is your next dr's appt? We go tomorrow to meet with the OB and have an u/s.  I get nervous every time.  They also said they might be able to tell us if it's a boy or girl tomorrow.  Eeeek!

     

    Have you had any food aversions?  I still can't eat most meats and fish.  So strange. 

    food cravings?  Carbs

  • I'm doing well!!!  I think Wolfie dropped a bit so my reflux is feeling much better, yay.   I've finished moving and am settling in, and still exercising.   So no complaints, other than the fact that I got pregnancy spider veins :(. Need those zapped ASAP.  

    Im 26w1d and back at the dr next Friday.  

    I have had an aversion to chicken.  Unless its like a shredded Mexican chicken, but it's turning me off.

    Im highly interested in bagels (most carbs) and watermelon.
