    Sorry, forgot to post last week. I'm writing this from SeaTac airport and trying not to be angry about my very delayed flights. 
    1. I'm 10 weeks today! 
    2. I've actually been feeling somewhat better. My nausea comes and goes throughout the weeks though, so I'm not sure yet that I'm past the MS period of the pregnancy. Still very tired though. 
    3. No appointments this week, but last week I went to my OB for the first time and met with the nurse for initial health screenings. I'm excited to hear the baby's heartbeat next week at my appointment!
    4. Other than flight cancellations, no rants. Rave: my mother is coming to visit us this week, and we are going to surprise her with the pregnancy. I can't wait!!
    5. I love being able to do outdoorsy stuff again starting in the spring. Hiking, biking, swimming, etc. It is all so much more fun when it's warm!

  • 1) How many weeks are you? 8 weeks.
    2) How are you feeling? 
    Nauseous, tired, have a headache, literally thought I was going to have to go to the hospital with stomach pain, it was just built up gas, never had that with my first, heartburn like every day, and my regular jeans are already feeling to tight to be comfortable even with the hair elastic trick. So still in the middle of feeling pretty gross.
    3) Any appointments or tests this week? 
    Not this week. They don't schedule anything around here until about 10 weeks. But after that I am trying to decide whether to go with the midwife I went with my first too or the doctor since we found out with my first that I'm O- and my husband is A+ and I want to to covered for everything.
    4) Rants/Raves/Questions? 
    Still hate insurance, it's practically useless depending on the one you pick, since you still have to pay the deductible. Sometimes I really hate living in the USA.
    5) GTKY: What is your favorite thing to do in the Spring? 
    I just can't wait for the lilacs to bloom but that probably won't happen until around my birthday in May. I'm hoping it starts warming up soon so we can start taking afternoon walks though. 16 inches of snow the other day means no walks still for a little while.

  • 1) How many weeks are you? 11! Woo hoo
    2) How are you feeling? 
    feeling better now in the evenings, can function like a normal human being. still have headaches and bloating. 
    3) Any appointments or tests this week? 
    The only appointment/test i have this week is a visit to an endocrinologist to have my throat u/s done. boo. i have a slightly elevated levels of some T3 or T4 thing and they want to rule out any more serious thyroid issues. even though I have never had this problem, it can happen during pregnancy it seems.

    4) Rants/Raves/Questions? 
    this is same rant as last week. when will i actually start showing so i can stop sucking in my stomach lol I'm not in a rush or anything...i want to be at a point of sharing the news but want to have the bump first.

    1) 8 weeks  
    2) tired and nauseous. It's getting a bit worse as the days pass but that's par for the course for my pregnancies. 3) first ultrasound tomorrow -- I'm so excited.
    4) Not sure if it's a rant or rave or what but we just bought a 15 passenger van and I'm having a hard time getting used to it.
    5) celebrating Easter!

    1) How many weeks are you? 9 weeks

    2) How are you feeling? 
    pretty much the same. Nauseous, tired and really gassy. 

    3) Any appointments or tests this week? 
    nope. I won't have another until mid-April. It seems like forever away!

    4) Rants/Raves/Questions? 
    I'm finding myself really anxious to get past first tri. I'm hoping I'll start feeling better, I'll feel comfortable telling people and I won't have to try and hide my bloat anymore. I feel like I should be taking it all in, since this is my last, but I'm over it. Bring on second tri!

    5) GTKY: What is your favorite thing to do in the Spring? 
    Honestly?  Open my windows and get some fresh air in here! I open them sometimes in the winter when I find it too stuffy, but it gets too cold really quick. 
  • 1. 8 weeks
    2. Nauseous only at night time, after dinner.
    3. Growth appointment on Tuesday.  Fingers and toes are crossed.
    4. People in general annoy me right now.  No clue why.
    5.  The sun, feels like forever since we have seen it.

    1) How many weeks are you? 8 weeks! 

    2) How are you feeling? 
    So sick and exhausted. My boobs hurt, my cramps won't stop, and the smell of anything makes me feel ugh. 

    3) Any appointments or tests this week? 
    Nothing until next week. 
    4) Rants/Raves/Questions? 
    Anyone else gone years between pregnancy and feel like it's kicking their butt this time? The first time I was 25 and all was fairly well. I hardly got sick, I was fine to go to work all the time (and I waited tables so it was brutal!) and I just felt like a functioning person. This time... I'm a big ball of useless and I wonder if it's being 32 instead of 25. 
    5) GTKY: What is your favorite thing to do in the Spring? 
    Most springs it's garden and get the fire pit out, but this year I'm packing and cleaning to get ready to move so I don't want to sink a ton of time in a garden that I either can't move with me, or is in huge containers that will be super hard to move.

    1) How many weeks are you? 12 weeks!

    2) How are you feeling?  
    HEADACHES.  ALL.  THE.  TIME.  

    3) Any appointments or tests this week?  
    I have a check up with my OB tomorrow and my NT scan on Thursday.  I had two ultrasounds (6 w and 9 w) due to some bleeding, and both times they were on short notice.  Since my DH works an hour away from where we live, he couldn't come back in time.  He'll be joining me for the NT scan so he gets to see our peanut for the first time!  

    4) Rants/Raves/Questions?  
    I teach High School Juniors and Seniors and I told them that I was pregnant last week.  They were SO EXCITED for us.  I think I would have waited longer to tell them, but I really really love my kids this year and wanted to share my good news.  They now ask how I am feeling every day.  What nice people! 

    5) GTKY: What is your favorite thing to do in the Spring?  
    Not wear so many darn layers/coats/etc!  I grew up in south Louisiana and now live in Virginia.  It never really got THAT cold when I was growing up, so I really hate winter.  I'm looking forward to opening up the house and feeling excited about taking our dog for a nice long walk after dinner.

    1) How many weeks are you?  11 weeks! \o/

    2) How are you feeling?
    Feeling much better during the day now, but still dealing with a little bit of nausea and vomiting at night.

    3) Any appointments or tests this week?
    Not until next month.

    4) Rants/Raves/Questions?
    Feeling excited that I'm getting close to starting my 2nd trimester, really hoping the nausea and vomiting go away for a change, the nausea medicine my doctor prescribed doesn't even work on me, ironically I get more nauseous and start throwing up right after I take it. 

    5) GTKY: What is your favorite thing to do in the Spring? 
    Hibernating less, going out more often and longer!

    I'm a day late, but piping in!
    1) How many weeks are you? 9 weeks yesterday!
    2) How are you feeling? 
    Seem to slowly be getting some of my energy back, but that could be because I slept pretty well all weekend, when I wasn't in pain.   I did find out yesterday that I have a bladder infection.  yuck.
    3) Any appointments or tests this week? 
    Nope, just the unexpected visit yesterday to see why I had been cramping for 24 hours.  I got to see LO and he/she is right on track at 9 weeks. 
    4) Rants/Raves/Questions? 
    Small rant.   Have to make a 17 hour trip this coming weekend.  I'm sure it will end up being closer to 20 with all the extra stops to pee.  
    5) GTKY: What is your favorite thing to do in the Spring? 
    Spend time outdoors with my boys!

    2. Nausea is still here and there, but not too terrible anymore. Feeling human again is lovely

    4. Rant: Had to come back from vacation today. Which wouldn't have been so bad, had the day not started off like shit. And at 230am

    5. I just like hanging out outside and enjoying the very, very little amount of days of truly nice weather before the humidity sets in.

  • 1)10 weeks!
    2) Exhausted, hungry, excited and clueless.
    3) None this week. 
    4) Rant- I want my bed.
    Raves- made it to week 10 before morning sickness hit!
    Questions: (1) are any of you guys into natural or holistic approaches? (2) is anyone other than me completely paranoid of all toxic chemicals in your makeup and beauty products? I'm starting to feel insane haha but mostly Im just a first time mom and extremely cautious.
    5) Gardening.
