  • How many weeks/ Fruit Size? 24 weeks adn the size of a Cataloupe.  That seems pretty big.... Hopefully the head circumference doesn't get that big...Symptoms/Rants/Raves?  Just getting bigger and bigger.  I don't even pee that often.  I am going to rave that I am excited to get some new maternity clothes, as I am getting to the point where I cannot blend maternity/not maternity outfits together.  I am going to rant about the need to buy new clothes.  Double edged sword maybe?When is your next appointment? July 1 - The 1-hour glucose test day.

    GTKY: What is your go-to breakfast during the work week? What special breakfasts do you save for weekends and special days?

    Nice question.  Breakfast is my all-time favorite.  During the week I have two staple items: Cereal (currently obsessed with the Kashi Go Lean cereal with the twig things) or Egg White Omelettes with all the veggies under the sun and a little garlic.  MMmmm.

    As for the weekend... I long for the weekend when I can cook a big breakfast.  A few of my favorites are Eggs Benedict, Pannekoekens, Swedish Pancakes, or Whole Wheat Waffles with Berry Sauce.

     I will talk breakfast anytime if anyone is interested!

    During the week is either a bowl of cereal, or I'll stop at DD or BK to get an iced coffee and either a small cinnabon or a bagel with cream cheese.  One weekends, it's usually pancakes and bacon.

  • How many weeks/ Fruit Size? 25 weeks and the size of my childhood plastic lunchbox (I am tired of the fruit thing)Symptoms/Rants/Raves? Lots of movement, except on rainy days which are few and far between....RANT I am so tired of being told "Oh you are having a girl/Oh you are having a boy" the whole reason we didn't find out the gender is because we are going to love the baby just the same...I don't want your guesses yes the odds are good for you to be right but keep it to yourself cause frankly I don't give a damn...it is a baby and the only thing I want is for the little one to be healthy.When is your next appointment? June 24 GD test (ick)

    GTKY: What is your go-to breakfast during the work week? I am back to my childhood poptarts or cereal with applesauce on the side.... What special breakfasts do you save for weekends and special days? My husband and I make breakfast together bacon eggs hash and hotcakes or pancakes depending on our mood :) here recently I have passed on the hotcake and went for pancakes because I like to add the semisweet chocolate chips and skip the frying...

    GTKY: What is your go-to breakfast during the work week? What special breakfasts do you save for weekends and special days?

    I've been baking a loaf of breakfast bread about each week, and the DH and I take a big piece for our drive in. So far, it's been banana and zucchini breads made w/ whole wheat pastry flour and flax meal. YUM!  On days when I'm home I'm obsessed with granola cereal - maple pecan is currently on the docket. On weekends I may make waffles or pancakes, but we're bad sometimes and buy cinnamon rolls. When we're really bad, we go out and get eggs, hashbrowns and toast! :) I crave donuts, but have been pretty successful in resisting them.

  • How many weeks/ Fruit Size? 27/rutabaga

    Symptoms/Rants/Raves? Insomnia and fatigue, great combo right?

  • How many weeks/ Fruit Size? 25 Weeks; Cauliflower
    Symptoms/Rants/Raves? Heartburn...booo! Loving feeling baby move, but so ready for my poor husband to feel him too.
    When is your next appointment? 28 weeks...between my last appointment and then, I have to also go do my blood work and 1 hour glucose test. I did an early one because of my weight, but that came back perfectly. Hoping for the same result. Now that I'm out of school and off for the summer, I'll probably take care of it next week.

    GTKY: What is your go-to breakfast during the work week? What special breakfasts do you save for weekends and special days? My go to is usually cereal or oatmeal (which I love with walnuts and fruit in it). On weekends, we're more likely to cook eggs or pancakes or make smoothies to go with our breakfast.

    When is your next appointment? July 1 - another glucose test. Did 1 hr with ob - failed. Did 3 hour with ob - passed. Have now switched to a midwife - their idea of a 1 hr glucose test is for me to eat a regular breakfast and then test!

    When is your next appointment?  Had my monthly appointment today.  Going for another US on Wednesday and then another US the following Friday.

    GTKY: What is your go-to breakfast during the work week? What special breakfasts do you save for weekends and special days?  I either do a bagel with cream cheese, cereal, or those egg and cheese wake up wraps from Dunkin Donuts.  When I work from home, I manage to make myself some scrambled eggs and waffles or eggs and french toast.  Sometimes I just do tea and toast or hot cocoa and toast or coffee and jelly bread.
