Re: First Time Mom Check In - 8/30

  • 1) When is your EDD/how far are you? April 7 - 8w4d

    2) When is your first (or next) appointment? Next appointment is 9/22 - I will be doing the first trimester screening so I think we get another ultrasound? I forgot what she said. 

    3) Symptoms? Now that I've started taking diclegis, I'm feeling so much better and can actually function again. Still have waves of nausea, sore boobs, and going to the bathroom all.the.time. 

    4) GTKY: What has been your most memorable vacation? As much as I loved sitting on the beach in Mexico, San Fran was my favorite. We went on a 20 mile bike ride across the bridge and back. I was crying by the time we were done my legs hurt so badly. I also loved the history at Alcatraz. That day, a former inmate was there doing a book signing and speaking with people and it was so neat to meet someone that spent time there.

  • Hahaha! That GIF made me laugh.

    1) When is your EDD/how far are you? 4/5/16 (8w6d)

    2) When is your first (or next) appointment? 9/22/16 - we'll get to listen to heartbeat!!  Plus another u/s and bloodwork if we are doing first trimester screening (not sure if this will happen yet, waiting on pre-authorization)

    3) Symptoms? Nausea and shakiness both better since starting Diclegis (except at night). Conspitated, bloated, still some food aversions, tired.

    4) GTKY: What has been your most memorable vacation? I've had lots of great ones with DH, but my most memorable one would have to be Germany with my family before DH and I were married. My mom spent a good chunk of her childhood in Munich as an Army brat, so we went to visit family and tour beautiful Bavaria.  Lots of beer drinking, pretzel eating goodness :)

  • 1) When is your EDD/how far are you? April 15th. & 7w3d

    2) When is your first (or next) appointment? My 1st appt is next tues, Im so excited!

    3) Symptoms? Fatigue but that is letting up, sore boobs and very mild nausea if Im hungry. I know I sound crazy but I wish I had raging morning sickness, it would make me feel so much better. 

    4) GTKY: What has been your most memorable vacation? This is a tie between my honeymoon to the Dominican Republic or a Cruise with all of our close friends that went to Cozumel, Grand Cayman Island and Jamaica. My honeymoon was amazing but theres nothing like being on vacation with all of your best friends!

  • 1) When is your EDD/how far are you?
    Apr 11 / 8w0d
    2) When is your first (or next) appointment?
    Yesterday was my first ultrasound!  I already had my confirmation/first appointment, so I don't think I actually have to go in again for a while.
    3) Symptoms?
    Aversion to meat, vegetables, and some fruits, nausea, and fatigue, although they're all starting to wane a bit.
    4) GTKY: What has been your most memorable vacation? 
    Probably backpacking/canoeing through Isle Royale.  Partner proposed when we were halfway across the island.  The next day I got a bad pump of water and have little memory of the rest of the trip due to fading in and out of consciousness, even though we still had several more miles to hike and quite a few (dangerous) lakes to canoe through.  Remember kids!  Always keep your equipment clean and don't get sloppy when it comes to preparing sustenance.

  • 1)how far/Edd - according to app I am 7w6d and due 4/12

    2) appointment - official first appointment is Sept 1, had some concerning spotting(I got paranoid lol) and went to Dr.- hcg is "lower than it should be, but still rising"

    3) symptoms - sore breasts, fatigue almost to exhaustion, spotting but thankfully no cramping, loss of appetite, aversion to jelly and super soft fruits, heightened smell.

    4)memorable vaca- hands down my honeymoon cruise, it was my hubby's first time on a ship that large and he couldn't get over it all! Went to Bahamas and private beach...never wanted to leave, still trying to find the big comfy oversized floating mats for our beach trips

  • 1) When is your EDD/how far are you?
    4-1-17, 9 weeks 3 days
    2) When is your first (or next) appointment?
    Actually, had an appointment today. Baby is right on track and we got to hear the heart beat :)

    3) Symptoms?
    Super hungry! Already gained two pounds. Sore boobs and craps. Also sore abs and peeing more. 

    4) GTKY: What has been your most memorable vacation? 
    A tie between Puerto Rico for our honeymoon and our European trip this summer. Visited Ireland, Spain, and Germany.

  • 1) When is your EDD/how far are you?  4-17-17, 7w2d (since I'm a day late on this!)

    2) When is your first (or next) appointment? First appointment's next Wednesday, 9/7 - I think same day as @SDSwenson

    3) Symptoms?  Super tired, tender nipples, so much bloat...and always with the peeing.  Just confirmed with my mother that she didn't experience morning sickness with my brother and me (we're twins) so that makes me feel a little better about the lack of nausea to date.

    4) GTKY: What has been your most memorable vacation?  I'll go with the recent (this past June) Australia honeymoon - it was actually the first time DH and I flew together.  We'd gone on trips together but flying separately due to scheduling, or one of us would fly/drive a leg and we'd drive together for the other.  Antarctica with my mom was super cool, but it's hard to beat the newly wedded bliss and just not working for a few weeks!
