How are you feeling?

How far along are you?

Do you have any news or appointment updates?

Do you need any T&P's for anything?

QOTW: The name game! Naming a LO is such a big responsibility...where are you looking for (or have you looked if you've decided on a name) for inspiration? Family names? Honoring culture or ethnicity? Unique names? Literature or art inspired?

Re: >>>Thursday Ticker Change

  • How are you feeling? I'm feeling good! I've been having trouble sleeping in the last few days...I find myself wide awake before dawn so I've been trying to get to bed early!

    How far along are you? 25 weeks

    Do you have any news or appointment updates? I have my monthly appointment today. Yay!

    Do you need any T&P's for anything? Just that my Dr doesn't yell at me for gaining 8lbs since my last visit!

    Our last name is very German so we've looked at some German names and Lukas (German spelling) is one of our top boy names.  We've also considered family names as MNs and lean towards classic names that aren't overly popular.  Our goal is to have 2 top names per gender going to the hospital...so far we have 1 of the 4.  I guess we have some work to do still!

  • How are you feeling?

    Starting to have a bit more energy which I appreciate

    How far along are you?

    10 weeks

    Do you have any news or appointment updates?

    Monthly appointment today and an extra u/s because my OB is awesome and said he may not be able to hear the HB with the Doppler so to ease my PGAL brain he said to have another u/s

    Do you need any T&P's for anything?

    That everything is great with LO and also for my friend who I found out is in in-patient treatment right now for PP depression

    Haven't thought much about it but will probably re-visit the list we had with Corbin.  If this baby is a boy I'd like to use Corbin as the middle name.

  • Yay, Nola!  Can't wait to hear your updates!

    Congrats to all the ladies hitting milestones today!  I love seeing so many! 

     

    How are you feeling? At the risk of jinxing myself- I feel great.  Physically, the 3rd tri has been a breeze. 

    How far along are you? 31 weeks

    Do you have any news or appointment updates? I had my 3 hr GTT and 30 wk OB appt last Friday.  I passed the GTT!  Everything went great at my appt, so great news all around!  Our shower is this weekend!

    Do you need any T&P's for anything? For baby girl to keeping growing and for the safe travel of my friends/family to the shower.

    QOTW: The name game! Naming a LO is such a big responsibility...where are you looking for (or have you looked if you've decided on a name) for inspiration? Family names? Honoring culture or ethnicity? Unique names? Literature or art inspired?  We chose the name Gemma Violet for our LO.  Gemma is Italian and means precious as stone.  DH is Italian, but was adopted by a non-Italian family.  He has always wanted to know more about his "roots" and the Italian culture, which unfortunately his parents didn't necessarily encourage (they didn't discourage him either, I guess they just didn't give him much opportunity).  His heritage is very important to him, so using an Italian name honors that.  Her MN is in honor of my grandmother.  Violet was her FN.  We also looked for names that weren't terribly popular, but still easily recognizable.

    How are you feeling? Feeling pretty good. My boobs are killing me and I had to wear a sports bra to bed last night. Other than that I'm just tired.

    How far along are you? 5 weeks today!

    Do you have any news or appointment updates? I scheduled my first u/s for May 17th!

    Do you need any T&P's for anything? Just for time to fly by for me until my 1st u/s!

    QOTW: The name game! Naming a LO is such a big responsibility...where are you looking for (or have you looked if you've decided on a name) for inspiration? Family names? Honoring culture or ethnicity? Unique names? Literature or art inspired?   I'd like to use family names for middle names. Other than that, I'm just thinking of names that I like and that H and I might agree on!

  • How are you feeling? Tired, Sore, and Cranky

    How far along are you? 35/35!

    Do you have any news or appointment updates? Next appt is May 8th.  Hoping DD is head down.  Otherwise we'll have to start talking options.

    Do you need any T&P's for anything? DD to be ready to go!  I'd really like to avoid a RCS with 2 bigger girls in the house and a busy summer ahead.

    QOTW: The name game! Naming a LO is such a big responsibility...where are you looking for (or have you looked if you've decided on a name) for inspiration?

    The girls' first names are all just ones we've liked but not terribly popular.  DD2 was easy since her fn was the other front runner for DD1's name.  Our last name is very traditional Irish so DH asked for a more Irish/Gaelic sounding name for DD3.

    Middle names are all family names.  DD1's mn is the same as mine and my Grandma's.  DD2's mn is my Great-grandmother and favorite Aunt's mn.  DD3's mn will be DH's Grandma and Aunt's name.  Aunt passed away of cancer in January.

  • Thanks for running the check in!:) 

    How are you feeling? I've been feeling a little better the last few days, but just recently my boobs have started killing me. I've never had that before. I had to wear a sports bra today.

    How far along are you? 10 weeks

    Do you have any news or appointment updates? I have an appointment on Tuesday.

    Do you need any T&P's for anything? That my appointment goes perfectly. I've been really nervous about everything. I'm praying that everything goes good and that my doctor can give me more answers to help me calm down.

    QOTW: The name game! Naming a LO is such a big responsibility...where are you looking for (or have you looked if you've decided on a name) for inspiration? Family names? Honoring culture or ethnicity? Unique names? Literature or art inspired?  We're just going to pick a name that we love. We have a really short last name so it's hard to find names that sound good with it.

    We had an u/s this week and we saw a strong healthy heartbeat. We have our next appointment 2 weeks from today.

    Do you need any T&P's for anything?
     
    We lost our last LO at 7w1d, so prayers that tomorrow comes and goes peacfully.

    DH and I have a few names that we both just love, we choose not to do family names. I would say they are classic names.
     
    Hope everyone has a great week!!

    How are you feeling? I feel great, however I have had some minor back pain in the evenings which makes getting comfortable a real treat.

    How far along are you? 26w

    Do you have any news or appointment updates? My next appointment is Monday. I haven't gained any weight yet, so I'm anxious to see how much I've really packed on in the last month. Love feeling baby more and more.  She is having a dance party in my belly right now.

    Do you need any T&P's for anything? Just a h&h 14w.

    QOTW: The name game! Naming a LO is such a big responsibility...where are you looking for (or have you looked if you've decided on a name) for inspiration? Family names? Honoring culture or ethnicity? Unique names? Literature or art inspired?   We were looking for a classic name, something that wasn't too trendy.  We have a very American last name and wanted something that would go well with that.  We have decided on Scarlett for the first name and are still contemplating what the middle name will be,

  • How are you feeling?

    Yesterday was rough. It's May. My angel baby was due in May and that's all I could think about as soon as I woke up. That I should be having a baby in the next week or two and instead, I'll never ever get to meet him. It wasn't a good day. I have a wall calender in my kitchen with inspirational sayings for each month and when I changed it yesterday, I saw that May's saying is, "Everything will be ok." Simple and a little cheesy under most circumstances, but exactly what I needed to see yesterday.

    Today I'm third trimester pregnant and irritable, but other than that, I'm doing ok. This morning I actually went out and bought some nursing bras and tanks, a duffel bag, and some travel sized toiletries and started packing my hospital bag. I needed to bring back my focus onto the healthy kicking baby that is currently occupying my belly.

    How far along are you? 28 weeks

    Do you have any news or appointment updates? I never got a call back about my GTT from last week so I'm assuming I passed. Yay. My next appointment is in two weeks.

    Do you need any T&P's for anything? That I survive the next few weeks with minimal breakdowns.

    QOTW: The name game! Naming a LO is such a big responsibility...where are you looking for (or have you looked if you've decided on a name) for inspiration? Family names? Honoring culture or ethnicity? Unique names? Literature or art inspired?  
    We chose the first name when I was pregnant with DS, but he was obviously a boy so we didn't use it. One of our favorite songs is Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls and we both really love the name. Her middle name is Wilhelmina, which was my grandmother's name who passed away from breast cancer when I was a child. I'm a huge fan of classic "old lady" names as you can see.

    Congrats to Dmalone and Kklamb today!

     

    How are you feeling? Feeling pretty good, just a little tired.

    How far along are you? 24 weeks today Smile

    Do you have any news or appointment updates? Appointment went well today, everything is looking normal and average, Yay! Next time I get to do the Glucose test and turn in my hospital registration.

    Do you need any T&P's for anything? Not right now.

    We are considering some family names, but all the girl names in our families are pretty boring. Having a super common name myself I'd like for her to not have 5 other people with the same name in her class. We both like Peyton, but it's kind of weird that people will assume it would be because of Peyton Manning (we're both big Colts fans) although I have liked the name for years before he was famous. We keep paging through a book of 100,000 names and ruling some out, but we still have a ways to go.

  • How are you feeling?

    Well you know they say "be careful what you wish for" - m/s has shown up in full force. I find the nausea super reassuring so far, but I think that may get old soon!

    How far along are you?

    7weeks!

    Do you have any news or appointment updates?

    We had our u/s yesterday and we have a beautiful heartbeat! LO is measuring perfectly (slightly ahead even). The RE was so pleased that she's graduating us to the OB!

    Do you need any T&P's for anything?

    Next week will be our first appointment and ultrasound back at the OB. There's a lot of bad memories and old ghosts associated with that office.  I feel really good about this pregnancy, but I have some irrational fears about going back there. Just always need calming vibes!

    QOTW: The name game! Naming a LO is such a big responsibility...where are you looking for (or have you looked if you've decided on a name) for inspiration? Family names? Honoring culture or ethnicity? Unique names? Literature or art inspired?  

    We've had our LO's first names picked out for years...ever since we got pregnant the first time. But the middle name has now changed. We lost my Dad last March. He specifically left money from his life insurance for us to try IVF again. He so badly wanted grandbabies. So our baby will carry "Glenn" as his/her middle name, in honor of their generous and beloved angel Grandpa.

  • How are you feeling? Having some ms today but I'd been feeling great for the last week or so.

    How far along are you? 14 weeks so I actually graduated last week.

    Do you have any news or appointment updates? I don't have another appointment for another 2 weeks.

    Do you need any T&P's for anything? Just that my ms would leave for good!

    QOTW: The name game! Naming a LO is such a big responsibility...where are you looking for (or have you looked if you've decided on a name) for inspiration? Family names? Honoring culture or ethnicity? Unique names? Literature or art inspired?  DH and I actually picked out a boys name and a girls name before we started TTC and haven't changed out minds yet! The first names are both kind of unique and the middle names are both family names. We decided even when we find out gender we won't be sharing the name until LO arrives.  For our angel we went with the only gender neutral first name we liked and the only gender neutral family name we have.

    Congrats to all milestone ladies and Nola, who's rainbow baby is here!!

    Feeling pretty good except for the varicose veins down below...they make it hard to walk. :/

    How far along 37 weeks = full term!

    Update had appointment yesterday. All is ok! The only thing is the veins are "pretty bad" but doc thinks it should not be in issue with delivery unless they get worse. So appt bext week and ultrasound in 2 weeks.

    T P's that these veins don't get worse and don't interfere with delivery.

    Name first name is original and starts with letter "E" like his brothers and middle name is someone in our family. ;

  • Congrats, Nola! I'm so happy to see your miracle has arrived!

    And congrats for reaching such wonderful milestones, AmyM and Kklamb!

    I'm feeling very, very pregnant. She's so low, but I'm not having any consistent contractions or pains so no sign she's coming today. I'm so impatient... Been walking, doing the dirty, eating spicy foods... You name it, I'm trying it LOL

    40w today. I'm so grateful to have made it this far.

    We were originally scheduled for an induction this morning because of my elevated BP been dealing with it the whole pregnancy. But my BP, weight, and NSTs have been perfect so they decided to let me go another week. Great news! We had an AFI and NST today which were perfect. BP was the best it's ever been. They stripped my membranes and may let me go until 42 weeks o_O FX she comes before next Thursday so we don't have to induce.

    Pray she comes on her own! And that she's healthy and happy.

    QOTW: We went 1/2 original, 1/2 family name. The middle name is my middle name and my grandmother's. Her first name is one my H and I always loved.
