@virginiaunicorn11 Hope you have a good visit for your grandmother’s birthday
@satsumasandlemons I feel you on the work stress. I’m just pretending it’s all going to work out fine, but I guess I need to start realistically planning.
How far along are you? 22 weeks
How big is baby? Coconut
Upcoming appointments this week? Nope
Any new symptoms or changes? Nosebleeds came back with vengeance this past week. Probably partly due to the swinging temperatures, but still super annoying
Rants/Raves/Questions? Semi-Rant: My MIL was originally not planning to come for the birth of the baby. She lives in another country, so logistics are a bit tough. But now she has changed her mind and wants to come. At this point I’ve at least got it to where she will come a couple days after the birth instead with booking a last minute ticket. But the idea of her coming so early still stresses me out a bit. My husband is firmly in the camp of doing whatever I am comfortable with, but I feel like saying no to her meeting her first (and probably only) grandchild as a newborn is not reasonable. Thinking having her stay in a hotel or someone else’s house rather than ours will be the best way to make it work. Trying to not dwell on it too much as there is still plenty of time to figure out logistics, just wasn’t expecting this.
GTKY: Which of your parents are you most like and why? Looks-wise I’m a pretty even blend. People think I look like whoever I happened to be standing next to. Personality-wise, I definitely favor my mom. Although athletic ability definitely comes from my dad’s side.
