Re: TTGP Grad Thread Week of 12/7


  • How far along are you? 7 weeks!

    How are you feeling? Gross. Throwing up, nauseous all the time, hit with a tired stick, smells make me ill. Woohoo, first tri! And I still have so far to go in the first tri, plus I was ill all the way to 18 weeks last time, so no close end in sight for me! 

    Any recent/upcoming appointments? Today, just with the birth center, it'll be short. Not much happening today. 12/28 with the hospital midwives, it'll be a 2 hour appt. 

    Rants/Raves? Potty training is my life right now, and everyone was like, CANDY BRIBES DO IT. And in my head I was like, no, he's fine going to the potty I don't even have to prompt. Enter, wearing actual underwear. Now I see why candy bribes or bribes in general work...he will gladly go in his underwear without even thinking about it. I went through all our underwear yesterday! Gonna have to get more of that, lol. 

    Questions? 

    GTKY: What is one gift you’d love to have this year under the tree with your name on it? A bookstore gift certificate. Or a foot massage package from this local spa...its an hour long foot massage. Oh man that would be so great.

  • @smashjam I hope you aren’t sick that long! Good luck with the potty training. I’m not sure if we’ll do that before the new baby is here or not. I have my doubts.

    How far along are you? 4 weeks tomorrow 

    How are you feeling? Pretty good, just hungry and thirsty.

    Any recent/upcoming appointments? My first appointment is 1/2. They actually wanted to make it sooner (they think I’m farther along based on LMP) so I pushed it out to be sure we have a chance at seeing something on the sono.

    Rants/Raves? Having a hard time not spilling the beans.

    Questions? Not today 

    GTKY(stolen from July): What is one gift you’d love to have this year under the tree with your name on it? I already know I’m getting what I want :lol: But DH is getting me a new record player, so I’m excited about that.

  • @SmashJam I feel you I was sick up to twenty weeks with my first. So for potty training we did naked and then pants with no undies then added undies. We still have struggles but going from naked straight to undies didn’t work. Neither did bribes, maybe I didn’t find the right bribing item though.

    @lalala2004  I record player sounds cool!

    How far along are you? 4wks

    How are you feeling? Pretty good. Hungry, thirsty and been getting dizzy at the gym. Oh I have been having some crazy back pain though. 

    Any recent/upcoming appointments? I’ll call later today.

    Rants/Raves? Rant-Pregnancy insomnia already. This has been the case with all three of my pregnancies. As soon as hormones start to change my ability to sleep goes out the window. Hoping like with my first it ends by 2nd tri, until it’s back at 3rd lol. Rave-Just happy to be here.

    Questions? Naw

    I’m pretty sure I know what I’m getting, a new keurig since mine died, and I know DH is tired of hearing me complain.

  • How far along are you? 5w3d

    How are you feeling? Not bad. 

    Any recent/upcoming appointments? Not until after Christmas

    Rants/Raves? Not pregnancy related: My H is worthless and a detriment to my life some days. I needed to be at work by 7am. So I get up, shower, dressed, kids changed+dressed, and breakfast ready by 6:30. He is still in his underwear. 

    Questions? Nope

    GTKY(stolen from July): What is one gift you’d love to have this year under the tree with your name on it? I'm not sure exactly what its called, but an external hard drive that doesn't need its own power source. Like it just plugs into the computer and thats the only cord.

  • @SmashJam I am so sorry about Potty training. I gave up this summer, and am entirely too content to let DayCare handle it. 

    @lalala2004 Are you able to find many records these days? or I am thinking the wrong kind of record?

  • @princesslockness oh yeah, tons of artists put their albums on vinyl, now. And I have a lot of used records as well. I have over 200 albums and a few 45s as well.

  • I only participated in the TTGP board for about 2 months, so I hope it's okay if I chime in here!  If not, no biggie, someone just PM me and I won't participate.

    How far along are you? 4w1d

    How are you feeling? Not bad so far but it's still soo early.  I don't think I even knew I was pregnant this early with my first.

    Any recent/upcoming appointments? No appointments until 1/5.  Seems so far away!

    Rants/Raves?  My first appointment is 1/5, and that's just the general intake appointment (which I can't believe I even have to do, since I just had a baby less than a year ago).  My first appointment with my doctor isn't until 1/30 - I'll be almost 12 weeks at that point!  That seems crazy to me.  How am I ever going to wait 12 weeks to hear a heartbeat?!

    Questions? I got nothing.

    GTKY(stolen from July): What is one gift you’d love to have this year under the tree with your name on it?  DH and I just bought ourselves a new bed, so I guess I already got what I wanted!  We aren't exchanging gifts because the bed was so expensive, so I'm just happy to know we have a bigger more comfortable bed now!  Also, RAVE, we got an adjustable one so I can elevate my upper body if I get heartburn again.  I had HORRIBLE heartburn during my first pregnancy, so I'm glad to know I have this option if I get it again this time.

  • @juliebird6 I am pretty sure its ok you participate...I was only active two months on TTGP and didn't post in the grad thread there, but I participate here! Unless everyone in July has just been DYING to tell me to go away and can't find the heart to do it. :smile:

    @kindbytealikat interesting idea....he is having a real hard time with underwear and pulling them down in time. I'll have to try it!

    @princesslockness if only I had day care to help! I'm stuck with myself.

  • So glad to be joining you ladies here! Nice to have some familiar “faces” around!

    @SmashJam ugh, I’m sorry you’re feeling gross. I hope you start to feel better soon, first tri can be the pits. Ugh, we struggled with potty training for a bit. M&Ms for pee and lollipops for poop worked for us. I had DS in nothing at all for a few days before we started putting him in underwear. Good luck! 

    @lalala2004 awww I can’t wait for a sono! Have you told anyone at all yet? I have that beef and beer tomorrow so my coworkers are all going to notice me not drinking. 

    @kindbytealikat ugh, sorry about the insomnia. Mine kicked in during second tri last time. Hopefully you manage to get some naps in!

    @princesslockness bahaha sounds like my H most days. 

    @juliebird6 ugh, I am so jealous of your adjustable bed!! I had heartburn with DS too, it was the worst!


    How far along are you? 3 weeks 6 days or 4 weeks depending on if I use O day or LMP

    How are you feeling? Shocked. I really thought I was out. I’ve only had cramps, which I thought were AF coming on. I’m pretty hungry, but I can’t say that’s completely abnormal for me. 

    Any recent/upcoming appointments? I think I’m going to call tomorrow.

    Rants/Raves? I finally made it back to the gym yesterday! Hoping I can stay active this time around, I was a lazy blob with DS. 

    Questions? Nope.

    GTKY(stolen from July): What is one gift you’d love to have this year under the tree with your name on it? An instant pot and a spiralizer.

  • @mrs_drc_rn I haven’t told anyone other than DH and DS (who has no idea what is happening) and all my internet peeps. Hoping I can keep my mouth shut until Christmas!

  • Hi Ladies! So happy to see so many new momma's! 

    How far along are you? 4w3d

    How are you feeling? Pretty good, headaches daily and sore boobs, but otherwise great! 

    Any recent/upcoming appointments? January 15th is my first appointment.

    Rants/Raves? Rave, this is my last week of work before I'm off the rest of the year!! Christmas shopping is just about done, only a few more small things to get. I can then spend the rest of my time off immersing myself in all things baby! 

    Questions? Nope

    GTKY(stolen from July): What is one gift you’d love to have this year under the tree with your name on it? A new washer and dryer, especially now that there is a baby on the way! 
  • How far along are you? 4w6d

    How are you feeling? Pretty good this week, I had cramps the last two weeks but they have really lessened. My boobs are still pretty sore, but other than that no major symptoms lately. Not nauseous yet and hoping that doesn't come until 7 weeks (when I get back from Hawaii). 

    Any recent/upcoming appointments? Had blood drawn on Thursday and am officially pregnant and had good progesterone levels.Have my first u/s on 12/28 and should be able to detect the heartbeat then!

    Rants/Raves? I have had to shift into pregnancy meal planning mode as opposed to my usual "diet" mode, which has been weirdly hard. I guess I have never just focused on health as opposed to losing weight/etc. But I assume it will get easier as I get used to it. Also this is probably me being a special snowflake but I am kind of hurt at how one of my best friends has reacted (or not reacted) to my pregnancy news. I told my close group of college friends and most have been really excited and supportive, but my closest friend (she was MOH at my wedding) has seemed completely disinterested. She has three kids of her own and has been excited about other friends' pregnancies so I am really at a loss. 

    Questions? Not right now!

    GTKY (stolen from July): What is one gift you’d love to have this year under the tree with your name on it? I really need a new purse but DH just bought me a really nice new coat (I needed one) that was an early present for this year so I think the purse will have to wait. 

    I'll return for tags!
