    1. How far along are you? What is your EDD? What size is baby? 32 weeks due Sept 24th

    2. Age at delivery? 37

    3. Any other children or fur babies? 2 little girls and 2 dogs

    4. How are you feeling?  Any recommendations for dealing with MS, aches, pains, etc? Feeling really good. Lots of energy and previous aches and pains I was having in my crotch and hips have eased off. Fingers crossed that lasts.

    5. Upcoming appointments or milestones? Rants or raves? Just got diagnosed with gestational diabetes, so am feeling a bit anxious about how that might play out. Means induction is more likely, which makes me nervous about other possible interventions, but I understand all the reasons so will just have to go with whatever happens.
    I have a 2 hr session tomorrow on the ins and outs of what GD is and nutrition etc. I'm hoping it's valuable because I've been reading up a storm so feel like I have a pretty good handle on the basics, and have had to take the afternoon off work and organise other people to pick up my girls, so am really hoping I learn new stuff.

    QOTW:  What is your favorite summer activity? Picnics in the garden. I'm a teacher so having the summers off mean the girls helping me in the kitchen to make lunch and then lazy meals on a rug under a tree, looking at clouds and flowers and birds.

    @sonpetitlapin hope the echo goes well for you!

    How far along are you? What is your EDD? What size is baby? 31 weeks, Oct 1, a Pineapple, a big Pineapple...

    2. Age at delivery? 43

    3. Any other children or fur babies?  DS 2, 3 cats

    4. How are you feeling?  Any recommendations for dealing with MS, aches, pains, etc? Definitely moving slower these days, achy legs and hips are making it difficult to sleep or feel comfortable, and major fatigue lately!

    5. Upcoming appointments or milestones? Rants or raves? Drs every 2 weeks now, she's happy with how everything is going. I'm going to schedule my C Section date at my next visit as well. We're considering either 9/26 or 928. So weird to be able to determine DD's birth date with absolute certainty, unless of course I go into labor before then.  Fingers crossed it doesn't happen because that will throw all of our coordination with childcare out the window! Starting to get weepy about being away from DS for a few days after csection :(

    QOTW:  What is your favorite summer activity? Beach for sure and enjoying meals al fresco!

  • 1. How far along are you? What is your EDD? What size is baby?

    I'm 8 weeks and 5 days! EDD is March 7 and doc says baby is the size of a thumbnail.

    2. Age at delivery?

    I'll be 2 months shy of 37.

    3. Any other children or fur babies?

    One very spoiled kitty. We are anticipating jealousy! This is my first time pregnant.

    4. How are you feeling? Any recommendations for dealing with MS, aches, pains, etc?

    Not bad. Left shoulder aches from trying to get used to sleeping on the left side. Persistent mild nausea and, much worse for me, persistent moderate constipation :-/ Prenatal yoga has been really helpful for keeping my energy up and body comfortable--I was much more sluggish and fatigued beforehand.

    5. Upcoming appointments or milestones? Rants or raves?

    We are in the process of moving from New Orleans to Toronto! This is major move was planned before I got pregnant, but being pregnant has added all kinds of fun complications (sarcasm intended!)

    QOTW: What is your favorite summer activity?

    It's too hot in New Orleans to enjoy anything much more ambitious than lemonade and a good book in the A/C. I'm looking forward to exploring more outdoor activities up north!
  • @Jalom I am jealous you're moving to Toronto! It's is just too hot here ... We just moved to Alabama (from CA) and my husband is from New Orleans ... Spent some time there in the way. I loved your answer to the QOTW b/c I was feeling jealous of the other mommas having picnics & going to the beach!! LOL

    1.
    19w & 3d
    Mango
    Due Christmas Eve

    2.

    3.
    DS 5
    DD 2

    4.
    Still incredibly exhausted. It is very frustrating and I haven't really found a solution :(

    5.
    Had our anatomy scan Monday and the tech said everything looks perfect and that she's very picky ... So sounds great so far!

    QOTW: And like PP, It is unbelievable hot (95 + and 80% humidity) and humid here. Just walking out to the car or out in the yard for a few minutes makes me queasy. Not to mention the daily lightning & thunder storms. Lightning hit our neighbors house and burnt a hole straight through their attack into the garage! So we've been building forts and legos in the house and getting take out so the oven doesn't heat up the house :) We ventured to the Y last week for their kiddy water park but man it was too hot to stay more than 20 min.
  • 1. How far along are you? What is your EDD? What size is baby?

    26w
    11/10
    Head of lettuce

    2. Age at delivery?
    38

    3. Any other children or fur babies?
    1 teen dd
    2 pups
    1 cat

    4. How are you feeling? Any recommendations for dealing with MS, aches, pains, etc?
    Feeling okay, good energy but not sleeping well at all. I just can't get comfortable and it takes me forever to fall asleep every night. Then the inevitable trip to the bathroom wakes me up and it starts all over again.

    5. Upcoming appointments or milestones? Rants or raves?

    Next ultrasound is in a week & a half. The next day is my glucose tolerance screening.



    QOTW: What is your favorite summer activity?
    It used to be the beach, but with this pregnancy I can't stand being in the sun. It makes me physically ill and I burn super fast. It's very unusual for me because I'm normally a huge heat/sun fan and have the kind of skin that tans easily. So no summer fun for me this year. :(
    This summer I'm enjoying sitting in the A/C and reading a lot (I'm a teacher on summer break!).
  • 1. How far along are you? What is your EDD? What size is baby?
    6 weeks and 1 day, so the size of a sweet pea. My EDD is 3/28

    2. Age at delivery?
    36, but turning 37 a month after.

    3. Any other children or fur babies?
    We are fostering two kittens for the shelter I volunteer at.

    4. How are you feeling?  Any recommendations for dealing with MS, aches, pains, etc?
    I've been feeling pretty good so far. No MS at all. I'm out of breath faster and tired too. I also have to go to the bathroom once of twice every night. Fortunately, I can fall asleep really easily.

    5. Upcoming appointments or milestones? Rants or raves?
    Will see my doctor only on 8/24 because I'm going to London next Saturday for 11 days and my doc is on vacation after that. Can't wait to have my first u/s to see if everything is okay. We had a MC last March and I'm pretty nervous about the first appointment.

    QOTW:  What is your favorite summer activity?
    Here too in Jersey City it is really warm, so I stay close to my a/c. But I've been to the beach.

  • I was a member of TTC after 35

    We had a FET of two CCS normal blasts on 7/23/15.

    I had a positive FRER on the evening of 3dp5dt.

    Beta 1= 408 on 9dp5dt

    Beta 2= 1014 on 11dp5dt

    My first u/s will be 8/20.

    1. I am 4 weeks 4 days, EDD likely 4/09/2015, not sure of the size, poppy seeds?

    2. Probably 39

    3. Twins heading towards age 6

    4. Crampy still and some spotting, please see history as to why this makes me so apprehensive, lots of previous IVF failures.  For morning sickness lemon drops or other sour candy, ginger, ensure shakes if feeling weak, a pregnancy wedge pillow for sleep.

    5. First ultrasound on 8/20 and weekly P4 and E2 checks

    QOTW:  I am odd and absolutely love winter.
