  • What's new with baby? (how far along, size & development?)

    10 Weeks!! The babe is the size of a prune or a kumquat and is about 1.5".  

    Even though it's early, is there anything you're doing to plan/get ready for the baby's arrival?

     I am going to email the doula today!

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms/Questions?

    Rant: I am over the heart palpitations. Rave: From here on out, this is all new to me. I haven't ever made it to the 10th week! So excited!!!

    When is your next appointment?

    I go in tomorrow for a blood draw for the harmony test. My first official appointment with my OB is on July 11.

    GTKY:  If you could only eat one style of food, what would it be? What is your favorite dish within that style of food?

    I think I would go with Asian. I know that is a VERY broad category but I could survive on all types of Asian food - Thai, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Indian, Middle Eastern - to name a few! Deciding my favorite is so hard!! I absolutely LOVE sushi, but all time favorite dish would be a Thai soup, probably Tom Kha Gai... it is actually what I am having for lunch - left over from Tuesday's dinner (the only dinner I have made in 2 months!!!)

  • What's new with baby? (how far along, size & development?)

    12 weeks today! The size of a plum, so crazy! Officially into the 2nd trimester (according to half of the websites) or 1 week left according to others!

    Even though it's early, is there anything you're doing to plan/get ready for the baby's arrival?

    Finally told my boss yesterday and HR sent out an announcement so I'm just having fun sharing the news with everyone today!

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms/Questions?

    Nausea and dizziness are both new to me. I just carry around a granola bar at all times now and make sure I eat every few hours or I feel sick

    When is your next appointment?

    Today! NT ultrasound scheduled, can't wait to see how much the little chipmunk has grown!

    GTKY:  If you could only eat one style of food, what would it be? What is your favorite dish within that style of food?

    That's tough but I think Mexican. I love cheese and fresh fish and veggies so I think I'd go with that! I love quesadillas and anything with beans!

  • What's new with baby? (how far along, size & development?)

    13 weeks today - baby is the size of a jalapeño or meyer lemon.

    Even though it's early, is there anything you're doing to plan/get ready for the baby's arrival?

    We've started making a list of girl's and boy's names that we like.  Pinning some nursery ideas, but probably won't buy any furniture until we know if it's a boy or girl.

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms/Questions?

    Part rant, part rave...I'm not sure how so many people manage to wear their regular clothes for so long.  I kept reading all these posts about FTMs who were able to wear their normal clothes until 20 weeks or later, and it was making me feel soo bad about myself!  I finally had to go buy some maternity pants because I was MISERABLE in my dress pants at work.  And now, with these amazing maternity pants, I literally feel like a new woman.  Honestly.  I should have gone shopping way sooner!

    When is your next appointment?

    July 8 - I don't think it's going to be a very exciting appointment since they told me it would only take about 15 minutes.

    GTKY:  If you could only eat one style of food, what would it be? What is your favorite dish within that style of food? 

    Italian. Cheesy pasta.  All the time.  And right now, that is exactly what I am doing.  :#

    What's new with baby? (how far along, size & development?)

    10 weeks today! Baby is the size of a strawberry and I was so excited when the app told me baby's internal organs were developed and he/she was starting to grow hair! Too cute!

    Even though it's early, is there anything you're doing to plan/get ready for the baby's arrival?

    I have been researching OBs/Hospitals like crazy to find someone/somewhere conducive to my natural birth ideas. Already spoke with 2 doulas I will be meeting when I get to our new place in AL. I also started reading Ina May's Guide to Childbirth and started a registry with babyli.st just so I can add things as they come up. Love that they have a button (similar to the pin it button.)

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms/Questions?

    Nausea has eased up from being most of the day to just the evening now accompanied by severe heartburn but I'm proud to say I'm slowly becoming more productive every day. I am having some vivid nightmares also, especially about baby's health (think it's internal anxiety due to delay in scheduling appts.)

    Anyone else in the January Club hoping to go natural? Maybe interested in a weekly post for natural birth plan mamas? I know there's a separate board for natural birth but it's not as active or current. 

    When is your next appointment?

    Due to our move, I've had trouble scheduling something yet. We get to AL from NC on July 6, hoping to schedule ASAP when we arrive.

    GTKY:  If you could only eat one style of food, what would it be? What is your favorite dish within that style of food?

    That's SO hard! I'd say American cuisine, I love burgers, hotdogs, and southern fried deliciousness.

    @susykat77 I see we are both 10 weeks and you are going the doula route too. Look forward to hearing more about your birth plan and journey. Maybe we could chat sometime about it. See my post, I am interested in starting a board.

    @juliebird6 Don't feel bad! I've felt so bloated and uncomfortable for a while already. I broke out the cotton sundresses and bought some of those new, cute stretchy waist loose shorts that are popular now. This is my first, but I'm big on remembering that everyone is on a different journey, all of which are beautiful <3

    10weeks! Baby is size of strawberry 

    Even though it's early, is there anything you're doing to plan/get ready for the baby's arrival?

    Not really. Throwing around baby names is about it. 

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms/Questions?

    My MS has seemed to gotten worse last couple days even though I assumed I would be heading towards the finish line. So that's a bummer. 

    When is your next appointment?

    Today. Pretty nervous. This is my first appointment meeting doctor. Will also hopefully be my 3rd ultrasound. Got first ultrasound at 6wks and was pregnant with twins. Had another ultrasound around 8weeks and was told baby "a" no longer had a heartbeat. So pretty apprehensive what will be done today. Also very nervous to see if 2 babies or only 1 will now show up on ultrasound. Getting emotional.

  • @susykat77.   All went well! Existing baby is healthy and was squirming all around!  Could make out spinal cord, arms and legs so was a relief! 
    @AriBo8 thanks!

  • A doula seems like a great idea. I keep going back and forth on it if its worth the extra money right now.

    What's new with baby? (how far along, size & development?)

    10 weeks.

    Even though it's early, is there anything you're doing to plan/get ready for the baby's arrival?

    Nope, and not for a long time.

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms/Questions?

    Not really. Still have pretty darn bad headaches. Otherwise ok. And a silly amount of anxiety.

    When is your next appointment?

    8/1 because i'm uninsured for the next month because my "benefits" people went on vacation and wont be back for another week (and didn't reply to me last week before they left for vacation). wtf.

    GTKY:  If you could only eat one style of food, what would it be? What is your favorite dish within that style of food?

    omg indian food. curries. palak paneer. holy yum, ate some today!

  • What's new with baby? (how far along, size & development?) 13 weeks baby is a size of a peach, I got to see most limbs and development at the NT scan, baby was moving all around.  Also got to hear the heartbeat at the regular check-up which was sweet!

    Even though it's early, is there anything you're doing to plan/get ready for the baby's arrival? Just trying to get my head around some names, I have no idea

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms/Questions?  Just some normal back pains but pretty good, very tired

    When is your next appointment? July 29th, regular check up

    GTKY:  If you could only eat one style of food, what would it be? What is your favorite dish within that style of food?  American, I love southern style food and fried green tomatoes are my favorite.
