Re: 2nd Tri Check In- Sorry its late

  • Not much of an update here just chugging along waiting for our next OB appointment at the end of the month.

    QOTW:  The heat is hitting me hard!  I find that it completely wipes my energy if I am out in it at all.  It doesn't help that our A/C doesn't want to work properly due to our electric company...someone got a piece of my mind this afternoon.  I try and drink as much water as I can and just staying in the air conditioning as much as possible.

  • thanks for doing the check-in, hunterjumper!

    Hope all the 2nd tri ladies are doing well!

    How are you feeling? Feeling good except that I can't get comfortable in bed at night. Also, I wake up early in the am due to the early sunrise and seem to have too much energy right now in 2nd tri! 

    Any exciting news or updates? Went in for my 24w appt today and everything is going well.  Not exactly exciting, but I'm happy to see that I've kept my weight gain on track so far.

    QOTW: It seems to be hot lots of places around the country this year, how are you dealing with the heat?  Do you have any tips to staying cool or are you lucky that the heat isn't bad where you are? I live near Boston so I know it's nowhere as hot as most of the rest of the country, but still, I don't do well in the heat.  We are in the mid-90s today and humid.  Luckily I'm home most days and I just stay out of the heat, except for my exercise walk in the AM.  I make sure I drink A TON of water all day (even when I'm not thirsty) b/c I had really really bad BHs a few weeks ago when I wasn't drinking enough.  That totally freaked me out.

  • How are you feeling?  Feeling OK. Having a rough time sleeping with the hip pain, acid reflux and RLS but other than that, feeling pretty good. Any exciting news or updates? We've (and by "We" I mean DH) started moving furniture around and painting. We're moving our guest room into a smaller room and will be using the old guest room as the nursery since it's a bit larger.
    QOTW: It seems to be hot lots of places around the country this year, how are you dealing with the heat?  Do you have any tips to staying cool or are you lucky that the heat isn't bad where you are?The heat here is baaaaaaaad. I had to get a Rx for an inhaler because the air gets so heavy in the afternoon and makes it tough to breathe. I can hardly stand being outside for more than 2-3 minutes these days so I've been chilling out in the A/C!!!

  • How are you feeling?  Overall, pretty great.  I am still on Zofran off an on, and don't really think I ever got the alleged 2nd tri energy burst.  Otherwise, feeling happy and good. Any exciting news or updates?  We found out last week that we are having a little girl :)  She didn't cooperate too well at our a/s, so I'll be going back in a couple weeks to hopefully finish that up.  We also booked our baby moon for next month to Bermuda, can't wait!QOTW: It seems to be hot lots of places around the country this year, how are you dealing with the heat?  Do you have any tips to staying cool or are you lucky that the heat isn't bad where you are?The heat here is no joke!  The only relief we've had lately has been from some crazy storms the last week and a half.  It has cooled things down, but unfortunately caused lots of severe flooding.  Otherwise, it's a/c or the pool, because it will be dreadfully hot until October.

  • How are you feeling? Doing pretty well. We just moved over the weekend; I was so much more tired and useless than I expected. I actually had to lay down and nap each down in the afternoon. Just couldn't handle off of the constant packing and upacking!

    Any exciting news or updates? We had a check-up last week. No u/s, but everything they checked looked good. It was a first for us....we've never actually made it 4 weeks between appts; every other time something (usually bleeding/spotting) has come up and I've ended up in an extra appt with my OB, MFM or at triage. It felt good to actually make it the full 4 weeks this time!

    It seems to be hot lots of places around the country this year, how are you dealing with the heat?  Do you have any tips to staying cool or are you lucky that the heat isn't bad where you are? Luckily, in my little corner down here, it's still pretty cool. It gets up in the 100's inland some, but I am less than 5 miles from the beach, so "hot" here is 80, and it's been cooler than that recently. I was in AZ for 5 days a couple weeks ago....no cooler than 108 the entire time. Lots and lots of fluids, and then when I thought I'd had enough, I"'d drink some more. Feet elevated as much as possible, and definitely staying in the a/c. I was definitely MUCH, MUCH more swollen there though than I am at home. DH picked me up from the airport and my feet looked like sausages...took a few days to get them back down to normal!

  • Update: I am doing ok. Definitely feeling better in 2nd tri! We had an ob appt this morning...nothing too exciting. The babies weren't cooperating well with the doppler and kept squirming away.

    QOTW: The heat hasn't been bothering me too much. I work indoors all day and the office a/c is permanently set on frigid...I often end up having to use a space heater! A/c is on at home and in the car, so I'm not exposed to the high temps for long.
    After 5 TI Clomid cycles, 5 IUIs, and 2 IVFs we finally got our BFP!

Not quite as hungry all the time, but I need to snack more since I get hangry around 7 if I haven't had dinner (which is most nights).

  • Doing well but getting tired again. Not as bad as first tri, but it seems 8 hrs of sleep (of course with interruptions to get up and go to the bathroom) isn't enough anymore. The heat's been really tough - no pools in my area to cool off in, and it's stupid hot today and my office AC doesn't seem to be working. Lots of ice water and as few pieces of clothing as possible is all I can do.

    I've had some minor acid reflux around the same time late afternoon every day. Almost feels like a gas bubble way up in the top of my throat. One TUMS and I'm good. 

    I had a checkup at the OB last week and the little guy sounds fine. Still haven't felt movement so I'm looking forward to that. I have my 20 week u/s this week so I can't wait to see baby again on screen.

  • No real updates here.  I'm starting to feel the babies move more, which is exciting because my placentas are anterior so I have not been feeling too much up until this point.  I am looking forward to Saturday because most of my nursery furniture is being delivered.  I just hope I can get everything ready in time!

    QOTW: It seems to be hot lots of places around the country this year, how are you dealing with the heat?  Do you have any tips to staying cool or are you lucky that the heat isn't bad where you are?

    It is very hot where I am, but I can't complain because I am spending most of my time at home in the a.c.  I'm a teacher so I'm off for the summer, so during the week if I'm not home I am usually walking my dog or at a doctor's appointment.  I just try to drink lots of water and stay inside most of the time.


  • Hi there! I'm new to 2nd Tri. Could you please add me to the list?

    QOTW: It seems to be hot lots of places around the country this year, how are you dealing with the heat?  Do you have any tips to staying cool or are you lucky that the heat isn't bad where you are?

    I'm lucky because I live in San Francisco where we don't get a "real" summer. It usually stays in the 60s and 70s, although if you venture outside the city it can get over 100. I'm from the East Coast originally though and my tips for dealing with the heat are going to the movies or the pool.

    OMG, I love the word "hangry." That is hilarious - I'm going to have to steal it. I definitely get hangry these days...don't come between a pregnant woman and her food!

    I was in Scottsdale last month on vacation and it is HOT there. I don't know how you are coping with the heat full time - a few days by the pool was perfect for me but I can't imagine going to work and having to run errands in 100 degree plus weather. You are a trooper!

  •  How are you feeling?  Pretty good, I think. I'm surprised by how much energy I have at this point! Although, I am really struggling with some of the size issues: swollen feet, leg cramps, achy legs/back, and heartburn. I'm still throwing up, so I finally got some Zofran! Yay! Any exciting news or updates? We had our 26 week ultrasound this week. Fluid levels and cervix look great, but my previa seems to be back (or it never really went away??). Also. Baby B has a mildly prominent bowel, which the MFM said should just fine. They will continue to watch him for any signs of a bowel obstruction, although she doubts it will be a problem. I know I should trust that everything is okay, but I'm still a bit worried!
    QOTW: It seems to be hot lots of places around the country this year, how are you dealing with the heat?  Do you have any tips to staying cool or are you lucky that the heat isn't bad where you are?The heat here is really rough. It just exacerbates my nausea, so I've been throwing up  more lately. We invested in some mega fans, so I'm trying to stay inside as much as possible.
