Re: ~*~ Monday Ticker Change Monday Due Date Check in ~*~

  • Here's mine :)

     

    How far along are you? 36 weeks today! 28 days until LO's due date!


    How big is baby?

    "Your baby's the size of a honeydew!

    She's still in the 17.2- to 18.7-inch and 4.2- to 5.8-pound range and continues to beef up."

    "Your baby at 36 weeks: She's getting closer and closer to being able to breathe on her own. Her skin is getting smooth and soft and her gums are rigid. Her liver and kidneys are in working order. Circulation and immune systems are basically good to go, too."

    This is amazing to me... so many of our July babies are already outside and breathing on their own!


    Any changes or "signs" happening lately?

    I've been having mild menstrual cramps and slight nausea off and on through the day. Not sure if these is "impending labor" signals or just "normal pregnancy" symptoms that I just didn't have before now.


    How are you feeling? Big and slow, pretty tired.


    GTKY: What's been bothering you most lately? My super sensitive smeller is driving me nuts. I have to cover my nose and back away from people with cologne or perfume on and my DH says that he can't even smell it! Gag! Anyone else this sensitive to smells?

    How far along are you? 35 weeks!

    How big is baby? size of a coconut I think... Whatever it is, she feels huge

    Any changes or "signs" happening lately? More pressure and crotch soreness but nothing else. A few BH here and there. 

    How are you feeling? So tired and uncomfortable. The bottoms of my feet have been aching any time I'm on them for more than an hour.

    GTKY: What's been bothering you most lately? People. Just all people around me and that they talk and do things. It's ridiculous and irrational but I feel like people at work and in stores should be quieter lol.

    This cracks me up and I can so relate. All my senses are more heightened. Noises are too loud, lights are too bright, smells are too strong... :D

  • I've been watching for this!!!

    How far along are you?
    37 weeks... So excited to be considered full term :D

    How big is baby?
    Bump says winter melon but I'm thinking a little bigger because I have been measuring big. DH was 10lbs9ozs when he was born so I blame him.

    Any changes or "signs" happening lately?
    I have been having the lovely cramps and diarrhea for the past two weeks. Not fun.

    How are you feeling?
    Pretty good for the most part. Hip and back pain getting harder to deal with and when baby stretches I feel like I suffocating.

    GTKY: What's been bothering you most lately?
    When she stretches. It hurts and I feel like I am going to have a panic attack because my air supply gets cut off.

    How big is baby? durian fruit??

    Any changes or "signs" happening lately?   Went in for my 32 week check up and told ob about all the pressure I am experiencing so he did a quick check and found I am already 2 cm and 30% effaced...freaks me out!  I still have 6 weeks till my induction date.  He said I probably wont make it that far, ugh and ever since then my stomach has been very cramp/tight which the nurse told me is most likely irritable uterus,,,  It hurts really bad when I try to roll over or switch positions in bed, like a crunch sound in my pelvic region.  I just hope to keep it together until I am at least at term.  They said to keep my feet up and drink a lot of water,  This is tricky when I live 800 miles away from my family and have a 18 month old!  Hoping this week goes by fast.  I think I will feel a little less anxious at 34 weeks....

    How are you feeling?  anxious

    GTKY: What's been bothering you most lately? my pelvic pain

  • How far along are you?  36 weeks! Wow I can't believe how close it is!

    How big is baby? The size of a honeydew...but I can't wait to find out how big she's measuring my apt. next week!

    Any changes or "signs" happening lately? I'm feeling quite crampy today but it comes and goes...other than that not much.

    How are you feeling? Bloated, poofy, uncomfortable, hot...BUT so excited that i'll meet my little girl soon so I'm trying to stay positive.

    GTKY: What's been bothering you most lately? WORK. By the end of the day I'm EXHAUSTED. I wish I could just stay home most days but I want to save my time for after Charlotte is born. Sad face.

  • How far along are you? 33 weeks. 

    How big is baby? Durian fruit (which I admit I've never heard of!), 4.2 to 5.8 pounds, 17.2 to 18.7 inches. I'm guessing he's closer to the higher side of that. When I saw my OB last week I asked her how big he was and all she would say is "he's a good size." She doesn't like to guesstimate size based on fundal height because it is not very accurate. I'm having an ultrasound in two weeks to check his position and size. He has been stubbornly in the head up, foot down position for the last six weeks at least, when my OB started checking his position.

    Any changes or signs? I've been having period-like cramps periodically. They don't last very long, usually come at night, and are enough for me to notice but not be too uncomfortable with.

    How are you feeling? Tired. I am having trouble staying asleep at night and wake up to pee and can't go back to sleep for a few hours. Which makes the day feel long and exhausting! My lower back and hips are starting to hurt a lot. The good news while my feet and ankles are still swollen, they don't seem to be getting any worse.

    GTKY: I am not sure what's bothering me the most.My mother is visiting so she's annoying me with her constant explanations of her child birth experiences and memories of things as kids, which she has told me 18 gazillion times already. And every time I tell her that medicine and obstetrics has evolved maybe just a little in 37 years, she just ignores me. Also just the waiting now until he's here I guess. I only have 15 more days of work including today until I'm off on vacation before I go on maternity leave. And it's going to be a long 15 days, as each day I find dragging my butt into the office a little bit harder and the days are really busy which is good for time passing quickly but bad for being so tired.

  • How far along are you? 34 weeks!

    How big is baby? The bump says he is the size of a butternut squash and at my dr appointement this morning she said he was measuring right on track.

    Any changes or "signs" happening lately? Other then being more and more tired, sore and swollen lately not really.

    How are you feeling? I have came down with a nasty cold so I am not feeling the greatest today - hoping to shake it by the weekend so we can finally get our house organized. We moved in about a month ago and have been gone every weekend since and we really need to get things organized!

    GTKY: What's been bothering you most lately? People -- just people in general its like no one around me these days can think before they speak most of the time.

  • How far along are you? 34 weeks

    How big is baby? butternut squash I think

    Any changes or "signs" happening lately? Well, I haven't slept since I woke up at 6am on Sunday. Total amount of sleep since waking up Friday morning is about 10 hours including some haphazard naps over the weekend. Off and on nausea- can't tell if that's from the heartburn or something new.... and the period like cramping has been going on inconsistently for.... well about 3 weeks now. At the last appointment on Friday the np checked me out for the discharge and said that my cervix is closed and she said the pressure, cramps and pelvic pains are probably just stretching and growing.... nothing seems DRASTICALLY different... but... still I am glad I took today off to rest just in case. I have over 25 sick days that I will be losing when I make it official that I am not going back to work after this school year.

    How are you feeling? SO beyond tired. Crampy, nauseous. Stressed because I am nervous about telling the principal that I am not coming back (she is quite the bully and not a fun person to talk to... she's already being quite the B**** to me and all of the other pregnant ladies about our absences...) and that my doctor is most likely going to give me a note on Monday to stop working for the rest of the school year (we go right up to the last week in June... I just can't handle the commute anymore!)

    and right this minute I am keeping an eye on my symptoms just in case. I am sure it's just regular pregnant and over tired things... but... I guess it is good to be cautious, right?

    GTKY: What's been bothering you most lately? Well, see above. The whole leaving my school thing is bothering me. On the one hand, I feel bad because I am such a responsible, overachiever type of person and I don't like calling out sick at all normally, yet this year, because of the pregnancy and how far away I live (therefore how far away my OB is and limited office hours) I have been using up those sick days- not to the point of irresponsibility, but at least once a month at first, now more like once a week at least. It bothers me the way the principal is so unprofessional and truly is quite the bully. Not a good work environment. Super stressful even without living this far and being pregnant.

     

    And... I wrote a book... oops

    How far along are you?33 weeks

    How big is baby? honeydew

    Any changes or "signs" happening lately? increased pelvic pressure, longer lasting BH, and I started the penguin walk.

    How are you feeling? hot and bothered, but thankfully alive and otherwise well.

    GTKY: What's been bothering you most lately? People, work. I feel like all of a sudden there's been an influx of morons in my life.eh. I think if I pray for them instead of talking about them, the end result might be better.

    How big is baby? The size of a honeydew

    Any changes or "signs" happening lately? I feel like he is attending a rave in my stomach. Moving like CRAZY

    How are you feeling? tired, uncomfortable, tired....

    GTKY: What's been bothering you most lately? WORK. I have NO motivation to be here... I have 3 more work weeks left.. I don't know if I can take it!

  • How far along are you? 34 weeks

    How big is baby? The size of a butternut squash

    Any changes or "signs" happening lately? Not really. Just seems as if my belly popped out a lot more in just the past few days.

    How are you feeling? Overall I've been feeling well. I just have a little more trouble breathing during workouts so I have to be more cautious. Also after long walks my feet and lower back hurt so much.

    GTKY: What's been bothering you most lately? All of my annoying little cousins or friends that feel the need to post several pictures of themselves on Instagram and Facebook all day. I love them and like to keep in touch with them but it is at the expense of having to scroll through newsfeeds full of self portraits. I think SIL is the worst. She will post pictures of herself in underwear and other provocative pics and I think 'really? What exactly are your intentions with posting this picture on the Internet?' Anyhow, it just annoys me but I deal with it.

    How big is baby? Durian Fruit

    Any changes or "signs" happening lately?  More swelling

    How are you feeling?  Crappy.  I just spent 3 weeks in the hospital. I have gestational hypertension that turned into pre-e, just diagnosed with GD two weeks ago and my hips/pelvis hurts so bad I can't walk to the bathroom without ending up in tears.  I just want to make it 4 more weeks but I have a feeling I won't make it that long.  :(

    GTKY: What's been bothering you most lately?  Repeat questions.  People keep asking me several times in a hour the same thing over and over again.  Or when I was in the hospital I had to give my birthdate every time I ordered a meal/snack.  I know it's just protocol but it got on my nerves big time lol.  I can't wait to be in control of my body again!

    How big is baby?
    According to TB, he's a coconut, I will have a growth ultrasound next week but he was 3.1 lbs and in the 70th percentile at 28 weeks so I'm thinking larger than a coconut.
    Any changes or "signs" happening lately?
    Menstrual cramps; and, my belly has dropped, according to others.
    How are you feeling?
    Wicked fat and super tired
    GTKY: What's been bothering you most lately?
    That I shied away from joining the crowd here, I think I have posted less than 5 times, this is my first ever check in, and now it's almost over and I'm wanting to share things but feel like I totally missed the boat!
