  • How far along are you? 19 weeks

    How big is baby? a mango, a Gameboy, a pair of sunglasses, a hot dog, an adipose, a tomato

    Upcoming appointments this week? Just with the endocrinologist next Friday for a monthly check-up.

    Any new symptoms or changes? I'm happy to say that the cold is gone, but this nasal congestion is not my favorite thing. I also get pelvic twinges when I sneeze. 

    Rants/Raves/Questions? It's a work rant...contractors that don't review their own reports for grammatical errors before they submit it to the client (i.e., me). I had 154 comments on a 22 page report. A large majority of them could have been non-existant if someone had done an EDITORIAL REVIEW on the stupid report. And now I get to be a b***h about it. :)

    GTKYWhat's your favorite family recipe? I call it the "Death by Chocolate" cake. So much chocolate. My grandmother requests the cake from my mom every time she's in town. It has to sit for 24 hours before cutting.

  • How far along are you?
    19 weeks

    How big is baby?
    A pair of mangos, though the anatomy scan yesterday puts them at 10oz and 9oz respectively (measuring a couple days ahead).

    Upcoming appointments this week?
    Not till the 21st.

    Any new symptoms or changes?
    Constipation. I'm over this ones already.

    Rants/Raves/Questions?
    Nope, all quiet on the Western front.

    GTKY: What is your favorite family?
    I'm not sure I have a favorite. My dad makes some insane baked Brie, and his homemade Irish stew is out of this world. Anything with potatos and cheese, haha. Oh, and the ice cream cake he makes for my brother's birthday.

    Rants/Raves/Questions?

    Rant: 
    people that dont know when to shut up and walk away.  

    Rave:
    DH is so excited it makes me cry. I knew he would be a great dad someday but how wonderfully supportive he's been has made me fall in love with him in a whole new way. 

    GTKYWhat's your favorite family recipe?  our Christmas cookie recipes.  We've been making the same ones for 30+ years.

  • @SquirttheTurtle I love your comment about your DH.  I feel the same way.  My DH told some work friends this week, and he came home and said "I told so-and-so that I'm going to be a dad!"  The joy on his face when he told me this... I'm feeling teary just thinking about it.

    @ktewart I'm on my computer for once and just noticed in your signature that your son's name is William Alexander.  That was top of our list if this one had been a boy... until I realized that the initials would have been "WAR" which I wasn't ok with.  I still love the name though.

    How far along are you? 
    16 weeks

    How big is baby? Avocado

    Upcoming appointments this week? Nope

    Any new symptoms or changes? Not really.  RLP is a little more frequent but not too bad yet.  I'm feeling more energetic, which is wonderful.

    Rants/Raves/Questions? Nothing at the moment.

    GTKYWhat's your favorite family recipe? Hmmm... my grandmother used to make this amazing cake with homemade fudge frosting.  I've never tried to make it myself, but I should get my mom to teach me.

  • @ktewart I thought the constipation was over but this week has been brutal for me, too.  I don't understand how it can be possible to be constipated when you're drinking 100oz of water a day.

  • @GreenBean, that's so funny! It's a family name for us that we had picked out before we even started trying. My husband's family has had "William" in the name of the oldest son for something like seven generations (it's my husband's middle name) and when my family immigrated from Scotland in the 1800's, it was five brothers who came over. I am descended from the third, who's name was William. Alexander is the middle name of my father and brother. Luckily for us, though, the initials are WAT, which is just a funny sound, haha.

    @SquirttheTurtle, yes!! It's so annoying! I feel like I drink my weight in water every day and actually am living on a TON of fruit and other potential colon friendly food, as it were, and yet! I am so frustrated with it - it's definitely unique to this pregnancy for me. Skipped this one with my son.  :/

  • @BusyZee I have acrylics and have gotten my nails done the whole pregnancy. Obviously I don't think it's anything to worry about, but that's a choice everyone has to make for themselves. If you need permission, I grant you mine! Haha

    RLP is real in my left hip/pelvic area for the past couple of weeks, to the point where just standing was bothering me for a couple of days. Better today, but who knows.

    I can't believe it's already the half way point! AHHHHH!
    GTKYWhat's your favorite family recipe?
    There are several things my mom makes that are pretty amazing - chili, fruit salad, sweet potatoes. I had taken pictures of the recipes for these awhile back, but lost them, so I'll have to grab them again next time I get a change.
