  • How many weeks are you?  Fruit Size? 30 weeks--cucumber...??  Umm a 16" 3lb cucumber is quite frightening lol

    How are you feeling this week?  Symptoms/Rants/Raves? Feeling great! I'm not overly thrilled with my weight gain--I'm at 32lbs so far.  I know everyone gains differently, but I reeeeeeeally don't want to hit 200 (an arbitrary scary number to me) and it's getting closer and closer.  I was vegan pp and in my first trimester I was so nauseous that I pretty much survived on mac n cheese, mashed potatoes, and caesar salad.  I think that didn't help my cause. haha

    When is your next appointment? I'm on every 2 weeks now, I go again on the 10th

    Have you had your GD screening yet?  How did it go? Yep, passed with flying colors!  Supposed to be under 140 (I think) and I was a 95.

    GTKY:  How have you found is the easiest way to relax while pregnant? Laying on the couch doing absolutely nothing.  I do that pretty much every single day after work.

    4 years TTC including countless tests, 2 surgeries, and one failed IUI
    Scheduled IVF for April 2013--SURPRISE, don't need it! DD 9/7/13 


  • How many weeks are you?  Fruit Size?  28 weeks, eggplant

    How are you feeling this week?  Symptoms/Rants/Raves? Not too terrible.  I get uncomfortable at nighttime but trying to keep my energy up by walking every morning.

    When is your next appointment? July 11th, doctor decided to push back my 28 wk appt. due to the holiday.

    Have you had your GD screening yet?  How did it go?  Yep.  I passed the 1 hr.

    GTKY:  How have you found is the easiest way to relax while pregnant? A warm bubble bath

    How many weeks are you?  Fruit Size? 31 weeks and a pineapple

    How are you feeling this week?  Symptoms/Rants/Raves?  Not bad. Tired from not sleeping great due to DS's molars and my sore arm from the Tdap shot, but other than that things are good.

    When is your next appointment? July 10th

    Have you had your GD screening yet?  How did it go?  Yep, two weeks ago and it went fine.  Passed with a 122.

    GTKY:  How have you found is the easiest way to relax while pregnant? With a crazy 2 year old running around there really is no easy way to relax!  Probably the best way for me to relax is for DH to wrangle the toddler so I can take a long hot shower.

    How are you feeling this week? Symptoms/Rants/Raves? Feeling great! Getting slightly harder to breathe though.

    When is your next appointment? Monday. We have an ultrasound to check growth, fluid levels, and the positions of the girls.

    Have you had your GD screening yet? How did it go? I actually had the three hour test done before my RE would even touch me for the IVF, since diabetes runs in the family. I failed. :(

    GTKY: How have you found is the easiest way to relax while pregnant? I'm generally relaxed to begin with. But, compared to going through the stress of "what if the IVF doesn't work?," pregnancy is a breeze.

    How are you feeling this week?  Symptoms/Rants/Raves? I threw up once in my sleep, the heartburn is slowly getting worse, and I'm tired all the time. Overall I feel better than I anticipated feeling though, I'd like to think that I'm a trooper...

    Have you had your GD screening yet?  How did it go? I did my GD test close to 2 months ago I think, all went well. The drink wasn't nearly as bad as everyone makes it out to be

    GTKY:  How have you found is the easiest way to relax while pregnant? I love to lay on the couch with my feet propped up on H and my shirt up so that my belly is bare. Nothing better than relaxing with my hubby. Big Smile

  • How many weeks are you?  Fruit Size? 

    27 weeks - rutabaga!

    How are you feeling this week?  Symptoms/Rants/Raves?

    Still feeling pretty normal - yay! Definitely feel the protruding belly more and more (yay maternity belt) and am beginning to notice mild heartburn more often, but really can't complain. Baby boy is also much more active in the past week or so - the occasional movement or kicks have both become more frequent!

    When is your next appointment?

    July 16; I'm now starting to go every 2 weeks. Gulp.

    Have you had your GD screening yet?  How did it go?

    Yep! Read the "Glucose screening: Go Big or Go Home" post from Wednesday of this week to read the full story. I don't know the results yet, but I passed out twice after they took blood. Basketcase, right here :)

    GTKY:  How have you found is the easiest way to relax while pregnant?

    Putting my feet up and knitting helps, but a bath is always the answer. Unfortunately, I think it'll be harder and harder to get out of the tub in the coming months!


  • How many weeks are you?  Fruit Size? 30 YAY and cucumber.. lame.

    How are you feeling this week?  Symptoms/Rants/Raves? Soo much BH and I just had an appointment today where they told me my baby is head down which she wasn't last time so I'm happy about that (yes I know she can move still..) they also said I was measuring at 32 weeks so they will keep an eye on that. 

    When is your next appointment? In 2 weeks!

    Have you had your GD screening yet?  How did it go? Yes I had it and failed the 1 hr but passed the 3 hr :)

    GTKY:  How have you found is the easiest way to relax while pregnant? you can relax???? :P

  • Sorry it's been so long since I posted - I feel so out of the loop and soooo much has happened since my last check in!

     29 weeks - size of an acorn squash.  But since baby is registering in the 95th percentile for size, I'm guessing baby is more the size of a baby seal at this point. 

    Recently loving watermelon.  Been out of breath for over a month.  Started having feet/ankle swelling this past couple of weeks but not sure how much was caused by the severe sunburn and cellulitis I contracted at a girls trip to FL.  Infection and calf swelling finally gone and antibiotics completed but man if I don't have my feet elevated 20 hours a day they look like feet from someone who weighs 400 lbs.

    I have a midwife appt Tuesday, July 2nd and then my next US July 10th.  I think that will be the US where they decide whether or not I need a C-Section due to placenta previa.  Midwife appts will now be every 2 weeks.

     Had the 1 hour glucose screening test and just barely passed.  Cut off is 129 and I was 125.  Since baby is soooo big and usually small babies run in my family, I'm going to ask the midwife if it's worth me keeping a food diary and checking my blood sugar frequently for a week or testing my HbA1C or doing both in the slim chance I have a mild case of GD.

    Haven't had any trouble relaxing during pregnancy but I guess maybe watching TV?
