STM+ check-in 6/29

I know there are already several moms here who are on their second, third, etc. pregnancy so I thought I'd get this thread started.

How far along are you?

How old are your other kids?

Rants/raves/questions?

Is there anything you want to do differently with this pregnancy compared to your other(s)?

    How far along are you?
    5 weeks today

    How old are your other kids?
    2.5 and 4.5 year old girls

    Rants/raves/questions?
    Nothing yet

    Is there anything you want to do differently with this pregnancy compared to your other(s)?
    Maybe try to not worry so much? I doubt it though.

    How far along are you? 5w1d according to my ovulation and temp

    How old are your other kids? 8 month old son

    Rants/raves/questions? I'm super pumped to be pregnant again, but it makes it a bit overwhelming when I think about the fact that I haven't even gotten to sleep straight through the night once yet with my current baby...(currently side-eyeing my son who is screaming in his crib because he does not want to take a nap, even though he is OBVIOUSLY tired)

    Is there anything you want to do differently with this pregnancy compared to your other(s)? Eat healthier and be more active. I did great at the beginning last time and then kinda fizzled out (so I feel ya, @bookishbaker )...so I'd like to actually keep it up this time.

    LMP puts me at 4w6days but I am fairly certainly I ovulated much later than normal so I'll wait until my dating scan. 

    How old are your other kids? 3.5 year old girl

    Rants/raves/questions? Nothin yet, not looking forward to the inevitable "we knew you could get pregnant again" comments. 

    Is there anything you want to do differently with this pregnancy compared to your other(s)? I want to try to remember the early days more and enjoy it.

    I am so tired... I went to bed at 8 last night. Like @KristinUM12 we are not sleeping through the night regularly so I hope I survive the next few weeks! Also in the shoes... We wanted to be pregnant again and have kids close together but I do feel a bit guilty DS won't have more time as an only. I can't wait to see him as a big brother though!!
    Is there anything you want to do differently with this pregnancy compared to your other(s)?
    Not really... maybe document more of the pregnancy in writing to remember more details.

    @Everycol0r people would really say that?!?!? How rude!!!

    @scoogy19 that would be some of the more polite things said... the things that come out of people's mouths astound me.

    @mdfarmchick I hardly took any pictures with my first and it kind of makes me sad! I was better with my second and I am hopeful that trend continues. I was in my third trimester in the summer with both, which means more bump opportunities due to fewer layers, so I'm interested to see how my winter trimester style will impact bump pics :wink:

    @bookishbaker Have you tried heat/ice in intervals on your lower back? Or using a foam roller once or twice a day? I also find doing some yoga stretches geared towards my back helps. 

    @heatherdubrow if you find out the secret to not worrying as much, will you let me know?

    @tosh24 I completely agree. Here's to all the sticky beans!

    @Everycol0r People are rude. Have you come up with any smart retorts to that one yet?

    @LiveNLove44 I didn't even think about winter/spring third trimester v summer! Haha. That will be fun!

    relax more. I was nervous about miscarriage and stillbirth the entire 1st pregnancy. I bled most 1st trimester, and we hardly ever made kick counts. I even had to go in several times and my daughter would sleep through monitoring and a nurse using a vibration device on my stomach so we had to get extra ultrasounds to make sure she was ok... she is just a deep sleeper. :/

    No rant, my husband though has been stepping up a lot this pregnancy and really checking in with me on how I feel.. He also snores SOO BAD but has taken it upon himself to sleep on the couch every now and then so I can sleep at night.

    Is there anything you want to do differently with this pregnancy compared to your other(s)?
    My first pregnancy we did not do a gender reveal and I just kind of kept it low key.. I didnt buy clothes for me to wear while HUGE really and didn't announce to anyone we were having a child. In fact the majority (except those close to us and the people we spend time with) knew we were having a baby. The rest found out after she was born!!  I'd like to do the opposite this time around

    Nothing specific I can think of. I'm hoping to work out just as much with this one. I'm trying to decide if I want to switch OBs.

    4 weeks last week but they're still unsure and get blood work results back Monday.  I missed 2 weeks of birth control while waiting for my mail order to arrive so we're not really sure when anything happened!

    How old are your other kids?
    Daughter turned 2 last week.

    Rants/raves/questions?
    Rant because we're supposed to be going to Mexico in two weeks with four friends so clearly this pregnancy is unplanned (was going to try after!) but cancelled due to threat of Zika still.  So, we're flying to Vegas instead and lying to our families until the next 8 weeks go by!  Good times 

    Is there anything you want to do differently with this pregnancy compared to your other(s)?
    I was very active last time and hope to do the same.  Nothing different, hope I stay on top of writing memories down second time around.

    @slr1229 That sucks to hear about your Mexico trip but I hope you have a great time in Vegas.

    5w 1d, according to my cycle. First appt. is Friday, though, so we'll see! 

    How old are your other kids?
    She is 22 months. 

    Rants/raves/questions?
    I had a really hard time breastfeeding with my daughter due to breast surgery. I was able to do it from one side, but had to use a supplemental nursing system. I didn't figure that all out 'til she was 6 months old, and those first 6 months were filled with pumping, crying, picking up donated milk from friends, weight check-ins, praying, and guilt. Once we figured out the miracle of SNS, we nursed until 15 months! This time, I plan to use the SNS from the start. I would be curious to see if anyone has any tips with a newborn on an SNS? 

    Is there anything you want to do differently with this pregnancy compared to your other(s)?
    I would like to be less secretive. Last time we were very "don't tell anyone the name, don't tell anyone we are pregnant, etc." This time, we are feeling much more laid back about it all and already telling family. We will tell everyone our name choice when it's finalized, too.

    Rants/raves/questions? I'm just in shock still. 

    Is there anything you want to do differently with this pregnancy compared to your other(s)? I couldn't have asked for a better pregnancy last time but I would like to stick to some version of my exercise routine as long as I can.  


    On our way to baby #2!

    Rave! Went to the U2 Joshua Tree concert in Cleveland last night and it was amazing! Last saw them 20 years ago in Detroit, so it was fantastic to see they can still put on an incredible show. Not going to lie: my PgAL brain had me text my husband at the start of the show worrying if the really loud speakers could in some way harm the pregnancy. Not proud of it, but there it is.

    Is there anything you want to do differently with this pregnancy compared to your other(s)?
    I'd love to not have to deal with hyperemesis for a third time so I can actually enjoy being pregnant. We're on the fence about baby #3 being the end of the road when it comes to kids for us, so the thought of this possibly being the last time I'll be pregnant really makes me want to slow time down and try to enjoy each day as it comes.

    Rants/raves/questions: "Rant" Secind pregnancy but my husband still seems to think that it's too early for morning sickness and being so tired! I can't even sit down for 5 minutes without him saying "you can't use the pregnancy card already. It's too early for that!" He doesn't believe me when I tell him my hormones are all over the place. Uggh so frustrated with him. 

    Is there anything you want to do differently with this pregnancy compared to your other(s)? I want to eat healthier this time around. I'm still really active like I was with my first. I just want to eat healthier.

    This will be our last, and so I'm tempted to "go all out." I had a shower with my first, but we've never found out the sex before baby was born (so no gender reveal), no clever public announcement, etc. It's not really our style, but I kind of want to see what it's all about.

    For some reason the symptoms are happening much sooner and more intense than last one did. I don't remember ever being this nauseated
