    How far along are you? Officially 13 weeks today :)

    Symptoms? At this point, what few I had almost completely dissipated.  The only one that really stops me in my tracks is fatigue.  I hit 3pm and want to close my office door to catch a few zzz's.  I'm still particularly picky with my food, but I'm better than I was a few weeks ago.  My appetite is back and I'm not sure that's a good thing. 

    Any appointments this week?  Not this week but on Monday I have the CVS test (anyone with experience, I'm curious about this) or maybe it's an NT scan (I keep seeing folks post about this and my doc wasn't too clear) and an appt with my OB next Thursday.  I haven't met with him in a month so I'm so excited for my 14 week appt.  I can't wait to see them, hear they are doing well, and hopefully it's just full of good news. 

    GTKY: At which store would you be most likely to max out your credit card? Ooo.... probably a tie between Target and Ulta. Target is just the best (when the clothing section doesn't look like a bomb dropped on it.)  Ulta is just my jam.  I usually roam those aisles making a wishlist I never fulfill.

  • How far along are you? 
    13 weeks, 3 days
    Symptoms?
    Mild headaches, and everything is annoying me, but that could have something to do with the fact that I need a vacation. 
    Any appointments this week?  
    Not until we get back from Florida in a week. 
    GTKY: At which store would you be most likely to max out your credit card?
    Any store that sells books or yarn.

  • How far along are you? 
    13 weeks 2 days
    Symptoms?
    Still have nausea/major food aversions. Really getting old. 
    Any appointments this week?  
    Nope...next one is Oct 21st. I wish I had more because it makes it feel real, but I realize that I am lucky to be low-risk and that is why I am not having more appointments. 
    GTKY: At which store would you be most likely to max out your credit card?
    Hmm...there are a few lol. Definitely Target (that would be easy), REI (we are really active/outdoorsy and gear is so expensive), and probably Michael's or Hobby Lobby (I love crafts).

  • How far along are you?
    11w5d. US yesterday said I was about a week ahead, but I'm going to keep my date.. mostly so I don't have to update my tracker. 

    Symptoms?
    I'm hoping they're going away. I had three great days, and then a horrible one. Today is good again. Fingers crossed.

    Any appointments this week?  
    US yesterday! It was amazing. The baby was going crazy, doing headstands, and wiggling all over the place.

    GTKY: At which store would you be most likely to max out your credit card?
    I haven't wanted to shop at all! I don't know what's wrong with me. Yesterday my mom wanted to do something nice for me, so she took me out and told me to buy whatever I wanted. I couldn't find anything! I ended up getting a pair of yoga pants.

    Symptoms? Nausea, fatigue, insomnia, aches in uterus. 

    Any appointments this week?  Yesterday--heartbeat sounds good!

    Symptoms? RLP, headaches, tired, sorta cranky.  :D 

    Any appointments this week?  Nope, not until 10/20

    GTKY: At which store would you be most likely to max out your credit card? I am not a huge shopper but maybe HomeGoods and/or Costco. Most of our furniture is really old and in a perfect world I'd replace a bunch of it!

  • How far along are you?  12 + 1

    Symptoms? Between 5pm - 9pm I become so bloated that I look 7 months pregnant. It's not very comfortable. I am still getting tired pretty easily but that's getting better. 

    Any appointments this week?  We have our 2nd US + OBGYN appointment tomorrow. 

    GTKY: At which store would you be most likely to max out your credit card? Container Store. I know that's ridiculous but I've spent a fortune there in the last 6 months getting our home organized. I just finished our pantry and it's so beautifully usable, I could cry. Next up is our laundry room space. Everything has a place, people!

  • How far along are you? 10+6 (due date changed today)

    Symptoms? Acne, gas, constipation; all things I suppose I'd prefer over extreme nausea.

    Any appointments this week?  Had an appointment today. Couldn't find the heartbeat on the doppler so I got an ultrasound, baby looks great and was wiggling around. Did bloodwork for NIPT, we'll get results in 8-10 days. Got my anatomy scan scheduled for black Friday :)

    GTKY: At which store would you be most likely to max out your credit card? Home Depot
    KirstinH88Omie_Wise
  • How far along are you? 13+2

    Symptoms? Mostly subsided... lulled me into a false sense of security and I decided to not take my diclegis last night. But threw up again this morning. Still have sore boobs and heartburn. Also feeling lots of fluttering which is pretty cool.  

    Any appointments this week?  Not until Mid October. Next U/S is on Halloween. 

    GTKY: At which store would you be most likely to max out your credit card? Always Amazon. But Costco and Target are also strong contenders. 
    KirstinH88Omie_Wise
  • How far along are you?   13 + 6

    Symptoms?  Tired at night and going to bed super early, sore gums.

    Any appointments this week?  None until the middle-end of October

    GTKY: At which store would you be most likely to max out your credit card? Definitely Target! I go in with a few things on my list and come out with my arms full.

  • How far along are you? 
    12+2
    Symptoms?
    I have had relatively few symptoms overall. Starving, a few motion sick type feelings, sensitive smell weeks 5-9, but now I feel almost completely normal except I second what Super_Sam said... 3PM comes and I feel like I got hit by a truck and have to lay on the couch for a bit. 
    Any appointments this week?  
    No appt. until Oct 21. The waiting is so hard! I want to hear the heartbeat again!!
    GTKY: At which store would you be most likely to max out your credit card?
    Definitely Amazon.com 
    KirstinH88Omie_Wise
  • How far along are you? 11 weeks today  :)

    Symptoms? Fatigue and heartburn. The heartburn seems to be subsiding some.

    Any appointments this week?  Not this week. Had my NIPT on Tuesday and got to see baby do a complete flip from back to front  <3 Next appointment is scheduled for Oct. 14th

    GTKY: At which store would you be most likely to max out your credit card? Definitely Target, Hobby Lobby, or Amazon, depending on what I'm looking for!

    Congratulations to each of you! Can't wait to read more updates and find out what we're all having!

  • How far along are you? 
    10 Weeks and 6 days today

    Symptoms?
    Waves of nausea hit me now and then and I start to dry heave, but its been a few days since I've thrown up.  I keep preggie pops with me all the time now.  Tired all the time and of course hungry.  I am either started to get a bump or I'm already putting on some weight from overeating.  

    Any appointments this week?  
    No :( Next appointment is the 13th for a NT scan.  

    GTKY: At which store would you be most likely to max out your credit card?
    Probably Amazon or Target

    @TheJerilu @Holzie  How did the NT scan go?  



    KirstinH88Omie_Wise
  • @aboxofchocolates
    Unfortunately, Seamonkey was sound asleep and refused to change positions beyond wiggling their hands and feet a bit, so they couldn't get the u/s results they needed.  They were able to see all major organs and HB, though, just not the NT at the correct angle. I'll be getting another scan on Wednesday.
