Re: ~*~*Friday Ticker Change Check-in*~*~

  • How many weeks are you today?:  12

    What size/fruit is your baby today?:  Baby is the size of a plum!  Mmmm....plums....

    Cravings:  Fruit, fruit and more fruit.  I love peach/nectarine season!  Mostly still having aversions, though.

    Any milestones or appointments coming up?  Anything you would like T&P for?:  My NT scan is this morning at 9:00!  Eek!!

    GTKY: What are you reading right now (or, if you aren't much of a reader, what is your current tv obsession)?  I just finished Unbroken: A WWII story.  Ohmygosh it was intense.  Seriously good, though.  I definitely want my children to read it when they are in high school bc it paints a side of WWII that schools don't really teach.  I'm planning on reading something a bit lighter next, probably the new Sophie Kinsella.

    DC - my EDD got bumped up a day to 2/7, so I'm a Thursday lady now. Sorry!

    Congrats to both my TTC buddies, Amberley18 and sb2006 on their beautiful babies!

  • How many weeks are you today?: 9

    What size/fruit is your baby today?: Olive 

    Cravings: Carbs: I just had a bagel with peanut butter but I also enjoy bagels with melted cheese, pizza and I've had a serious craving for grilled cheese. 

    Any milestones or appointments coming up?  Anything you would like T&P for?:  We met with our midwifery team yesterday and after a few q and a's, DH is totally on board (we agreed to go under their care immediately) and he's kinda super stoked for the idea that I could do a water birth (they're the only practice who have privileges at a hospital equipped for a water birth). He's also coming around to be more supportive of my want for a natural birth and we spoke last night about what classes to take so that we have the resources needed for that. They didn't try the doppler, but we also ran out of time. Maybe next week?! We booked our NT scan for August 7th (yay!) and then we'll tell the parents.

    GTKY: What are you reading right now (or, if you aren't much of a reader, what is your current tv obsession)? I recently read the Night Circus, which was excellent. Otherwise, I haven't really had time to read for pleasure, I'm mainly working on my thesis.

    My super all about me birth story:
    Then: Fraternal twins born at 26 weeks in 1983. Me: 640 grams. Brother: 840 grams. Family kept watch in the NICU for 5 months before being allowed to go home. On oxygen for a year and a half after being released.
    Now: Me: PhD student and married. Brother: Lawyer and married.
    Dad's wedding speech: Thank you to all the family who stood watch and prayed for our children's survival. Well now the little scrawny chicken is married. Who would've thought? (Thanks dad for making me laugh and cry at the same time).

    How many weeks are you today?: 10

    What size/fruit is your baby today?: A prune, I think

    Cravings: Oddly, yesterday I had no hunger pangs and no cravings suddely. So far today only a little. I'm worried! But of course I am worried about EVERYTHING. Ordinarily I've been craving fruit a lot and icecream. So I've been trying to eat fruits instead of icecream!

    Any milestones or appointments coming up? Anything you would like T&P for?: I'd love T&P that things are just going okay in there. We heard a good strong heartbeat and 8.5 weeks, so I should probably relax, but I just can't. I've been keeping all of us February moms in my thoughts and hoping that everyone's doing great!

    GTKY: What are you reading right now (or, if you aren't much of a reader, what is your current tv obsession)? This is crazy "behind the times" but I am reading the 6th book of Harry Potter. I never made it past book five when they first came out and have somehow managed to keep all my friends from revealing the plot twists yet to come.

  • How many weeks are you today?: 9

    What size/fruit is your baby today?: an olive

    Cravings: nothing really. I am just happy if something doesnt sounds gross.

    Any milestones or appointments coming up?  Anything you would like T&P for?: We have an u/s appt on Monday. I am getting really nervous for the next two weeks as it is leading up to when we lost the baby last time. I know there isnt anything I can do about it, but I just worry a lot.

    GTKY: What are you reading right now (or, if you aren't much of a reader, what is your current tv obsession)? Currently reading lame textbooks for a grad class... but I cant wait for the Bachelorette finale this weekend. Also, DH and I have been watching How I Met Your Mother on netflix and love it.
     
    ETA: To the ladies reading Fifty Shades, once youre done you should start Bare to You, it's similiar. It's the last book I read before my summer class started. The only major downer is that it is one book and the sequel doesnt come out until later this year.

    He's my fairytale, a dream when I'm not sleeping.

    Any milestones or appointments coming up?  Anything you would like T&P for?:
    NT scan is Wednesday of this week--SO ready for it to be here and get good news (and see the baby, because from what I can tell from other people's scans, it will actually look like a real baby!!!) :-)

    GTKY: What are you reading right now (or, if you aren't much of a reader, what is your current tv obsession)? I'm reading The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy right now....after that, I've bought some books for my kindle on the first year, breastfeeding etc. I know I have to read them now because once LO gets here that "free time" will be out the window!
