  • How far along are you? 11 weeks

    How big is baby? Lime

    Upcoming appointments this week? I have an appointment this afternoon.


    Any new symptoms or changes? Still experiencing nausea, and terrible fatigue. I also still have lots of acne, although my back seems to be clearing up just a bit.

    Rants/Raves/Questions? Planning to do some maternity shopping this weekend, I don't really NEED to wear maternity yet, but I'm getting really antsy feeling like there's nothing to really "do" to prepare for baby yet.

    GTKY: What was the best gift you received this holiday season? DH got me a gift certificate for a really nice spa, the package includes a massage, facial, and foot massage/treatment. I am so excited to use it!!

  • How far along are you? Finally 12 weeks!

    How big is baby? Plum

    Upcoming appointments this week? Not this week, but I found out that I AM getting to see the little bean on u/s again next week, and I can't WAIT. The last time I saw him, he was just a little jelly bean. Now he'll look like a human!

    Any new symptoms or changes? M/s and fatigue is getting better, but not gone. I've been getting headaches. It may be related to water and food consumption, or it may just be hormonal. Starting to have leg discomfort. 

    Rants/Raves/Questions? Rant: a lot of people keep commenting, especially over Christmas, about what and how much I'm eating. I'm having a hard enough time knowing I'm going to gain so much weight, and my body is going to change so much. I really don't need the comments. I had body image issues in high school (doesn't everyone?), and while I haven't had problems for years, they're coming back now that my body is going to change so much. 

    GTKY: What was the best gift you received this holiday season? We got so many amazing and needed baby gifts, I can't choose just one. Highlights: bassinet, car seat, Moby carrier, and adorable swing/play chair.

    How big is baby? a lemon

    Upcoming appointments this week? no, but I should be getting the results from my bloodwork.

    Any new symptoms or changes? my boobs are back to normal size. Backstory: I was a 32g since 6th grade, through both pregnancies no change in size. After bfing my second I dropped almost 2 sizes. But, they're baaaaack.

    Rants/Raves/Questions. My sil is pregnant and keeps trying to tell every one that she will have her baby almost 3 weeks early bc she's so big. Her last US baby boy was 7 lbs 8 oz. My boy was 8lbs 3oz at delivery, she twice my size and "about to pop" she's due Jan 29. 

    GTKY: what was the best gift you received this holI day season? I got a Copper Skillet! I can't wait to use it!

    Thanks for starting this, @CrystalPDX !

    How far along are you? 13 weeks

    How big is baby? A jalapeño or lemon

    Upcoming appointments this week? Nope!

    Any new symptoms or changes? My bra size has gone up a whole cup so that's really fun. Also, I can no longer zip or button a single pair of jeans that I own. I haven't buckled down and bought maternity pants yet, still tying to make due in leggings. But it's hard. 


    Rants/Raves/Questions? Can I rant about how I HATE sitting near stinky co-workers who smell like stale cigarette smoke all day? Ugh it's driving me crazy. 

    GTKY: What was the best gift you received this holiday season? Somehow my DH managed to find my absolute favorite perfume online, after I thought it had been discontinued months ago!!

    Rants/Raves/Questions? Symptom rant. I've been having back pain, but last week it was so bad I couldn't get up or walk. Went to the doc and I have a sciatic nerve. Waiting for a physiotherapist appointment. In the meantime lots of stretching and heat pads. It really really sucks, and I hope it doesn't stay like this.

    GTKY: What was the best gift you received this holiday season? I know it's simple, but a white bathrobe. Now it feels like I'm in a spa at home :)

    GTKY: What was the best gift you received this holiday season? My father in law made us shelves and these Mason jars that hang on a piece of wood on the wall. I love homemade thoughtful gifts! I saw them on etsy and instead of ordering, they made them! Also got cute onesies and swaddles and random little things that made me so excited!!!

    Any new symptoms or changes? My appetite is back with a vengeance. Also, definitely experiencing weird dreams. 

    Rants/Raves/Questions? I went to yoga with my MIL today. The teacher was fantastic and showed me a few poses after class to help with the lower back and hip pain that I've been dealing with since getting my BFP.   

    GTKY: What was the best gift you received this holiday season? My in-laws got me fleece lined leggings. I live in the south so I have no cold weather clothes. We are visiting family in NY for the holidays and I am constantly freezing. Not sure if this is the best, but definitely the most useful for me at the moment.

    How big is baby? Plum

    Upcoming appointments this week? None this week.
