    1) Due date? How many weeks are you? What size is baby? Mar. 16, 35 weeks, coconut.

    2) Age at delivery? (optional) 37

    3) Any other children? Furbabies? Nope.

    4) How are you feeling? New symptoms this week? The feet have suddenly started to swell (don't worry, everything else checks out fine). I'm not too happy about that, but suddenly happy for this lousy weather that lets me hide them!

    5) Any upcoming appointments, milestones, rants or raves? Appointment: next week; milestone: next appointment is first internal and start of every week appointments (!); rant: nursery is in terrible shape (grr DH!) and work is not much better; rave: friends are throwing me a shower this week.

    QOTW: Do you and your significant other have any plans for Valentine's Day? We don't bother making plans since we usually have a casual dinner out (wings!) and there's no need to plan ahead (which is part of the plan!).

    AMA & SAIF. TTC #1 since Oct. 2010. DX: Unexplained. BFP on break after 32 months trying and 2 med cycles. Baby girl born at 40w0d!

    1) Due date? How many weeks are you? What size is baby?
    8/8/14, 14w4d, lemon

    2) Age at delivery? (optional)
    39

    3) Any other children? Furbabies?
    One dog

    4) How are you feeling? New symptoms this week?
    I am MOODY beyond belief. I have wanted to scream and cry all day today. {blush}

    5) Any upcoming appointments, milestones, rants or raves?
    I go back at 16 weeks for some more blood work.

    I have a more obvious belly now, and I have told a few more people. I called my grandma and told her last night, and she was really happy for us. :) 

    QOTW: Do you and your significant other have any plans for Valentine's Day?
    We're going to a jazz show, and we'll eat there. It's a pretty low-key place, so I think that will be perfect.

    1) Due date? 3/9/14, officially less than a month to go! How many weeks are you? 36 weeks What size is baby? A honeydew melon

    2) Age at delivery? 36

    3) Any other children? No Furbabies? 2 pups who are loving me being home full time. I'm working from home the rest of my pregnancy due to some issues and doc wanting me off my feet as much as possible.

    4) How are you feeling? New symptoms this week? Still feeling like crap. Constant back pain, contractions daily, unable to be on my feet for more than 10 minutes. Oh and just for fun after getting over one hemorrhoid 2 new ones have emerged!

    5) Any upcoming appointments, milestones, rants or raves? Next 2 week visit isn't till February 20th.

    QOTW: Do you and your significant other have any plans for Valentine's Day? Due to lots of extra expenses with the impending arrival of the LO and significant decrease in my pay while I'm on maternity leave we have decided to skip presents or anything this year. Besides the best expression of our love will be here in less than a month!

    2) Age at delivery? (optional)  41

    3) Any other children? Furbabies?
        Sadly, we're down to one dog.   We sad goodbye to my sweet girl this weekend.  We shared 13 wonderful years together.  It is so hard.

    4) How are you feeling? New symptoms this week?  Ok, physically.

    5) Any upcoming appointments, milestones, rants or raves?  No appointments or milestones this week.   My rave is that since last week's check-in: we've selected paint colors for the nursery, the crib has arrived, we started our birthing class, we selected a doula, we started baby prep training for our remaining dog and we started investigating the nanny/day care options (this one I feel very behind on).

    QOTW: Do you and your significant other have any plans for Valentine's Day?  
    He always cooks dinner and we stay in.  It's a nice tradition.

    QOTW: Do you and your significant other have any plans for Valentine's Day? DH is planning to cook for us at home. He is a great cook but hasn't been in the kitchen much lately so I am excited.

    Hi everyone - sorry if this gets mushed together from typing on an IPad.... 1. Due date - 9/7/14 - 10.5 weeks / prune 2. Age at delivery - 37 3. Children / fur babies - One delicious 2 year old black lab mix who is spooning me in bed as I type. 4. How are you feeling? The nausea is really kicking my butt right now. No puking, just constant worry that I am going to at any moment. 5. Upcoming appointments / milestones / rants: appointment next Monday to start some genetic blood work and I guess discuss NT scan. So I'm a little nervous and excited. Rant - I'm in the middle of moving so I am feeling really overwhelmed right now. And the nausea and exhaustion are not helping. 6. Valentines day? Hubby is getting a major pass since we are moving the next day. So no flowers, etc. Maybe something belated once we are settled in.
