  • 1. How many weeks are you? What size is baby?

    30 weeks 1 day. Kon, Celery, some other random things

    2. How are you feeling?

    Mostly pretty good, my back gets tired pretty quickly these days though which is super annoying. And some crusty boobs some mornings. Not a fan of that, but I guess it can be normal?

    3. Any appointments this week?

    Had one today. Got lectured about my weight gain, because I needed to feel worse about it. The upside is they said the boob thing is normal and that baby is currently head down, we'll see if he stays that way. Currently he seems to love to jam his butt right into my belly while doing a handstand, it was funny at first, but getting old really quick! He did it today at my appointment and the midwife stated laughing because it looks super funny.

    4. Rants/raves/questions?

    Um, I'm tired of being pregnant, and still 10 more weeks to go. Tired of my back being tired, tired of having to pee all the time, and tired of being sweaty when I sleep. Clearly I'm going to be a peach to be around as baby continues to grow and I become more uncomfortable the closer we get to the end. :#

    5. GTKY: What's your favorite summer or warm weather activity?

    We hike a lot, and I love that but won't be able to do much this year so we're a little bummed. Otherwise I like to lay around in my hammock and read or watch baseball and be lazy.


    @zombiehoohaa I love fennec foxes, so cute!

    I'm gonna be 30 weeks tomorrow! Can't believe it. 

    I'm feeling pretty good. I'm tossing and turning a bit more at night but I'm still going all night without peeing which is pretty amazing. I'm sure it's gonna hit me hard soon. I still have a decent amount of energy but I get tired of walking a bit faster and bending over is completely out of the question. I miss my range of movement so much! Appetite is also decreasing as there isn't as much space for food. Still not feeling too big.

    Had an appointment on Wednesday and everything is looking good, baby is 2.9 lbs and right in the 50th percentile for growth. Taking iron every other day.

    I miss my exercise routine a bit. More like being able to move freely without worries. And I'm settled in this routine where I'm active but not as active as before which is still a little weird. But overall I'm trying to embrace it. Getting anxious about biyibu everything on the registry and really can't wait for the shower to be out of the way, I'm not planning it but for some reason I'm a bit nervous about it.

    Summer means beach beach beach. It may be hard this year with a brand new baby! But if he comes on time we may still be able to go end of August through September which is the best time in Southern California.
  • 1. How many weeks are you? What size is baby27+5, baby is the size of lettuce

    2. How are you feeling? I'm feeling okay, I was just telling DH how my back/hips/feet haven't been hurting lately but I really think the storm is coming (hello 3rd trimester).  Heartburn is here to stay, in a big way.  I'm slowly starting to figure out what the trigger foods are, but sometimes there is no trigger and it just appears.

    3. Any appointments this week?  None.  The group of docs who will be delivering the babe are finally taking over my prenatal care on the 8th so I'm excited and nervous to start meeting them.

    4. Rants/raves/questions? @noideawhatshesdoing I second that!! I'm so tired of sweating so much...and the pee.  Just all the fluids, I'm tired of all the fluids!!!  I'm also tired of not sleeping, which is making me tired LOL.  50% of mornings I struggle to get out of bed because I've been up most of the night tossing, turning, peeing, and drinking water because my mouth gets so dry; the other 50% of mornings I'm up at 4:30am due to unexplained preg-somnia.  

    5. GTKY: What's your favorite summer or warm weather activity?
    I just love being by the lake or ocean, it's been tough moving to the prairies from the coast - I've really noticed the lack of water in my life.

  • How are you all getting baby's weight and size info? Do you do an ultrasound at each Dr visit? Just curious because no one has ever offered me any idea of weight/size, even at my ultrasounds.
  • 1. How many weeks are you? What size is baby?

    31 weeks on Sunday, baby measured at 4 lbs. 4 oz. at my ultrasound on Wednesday!

    2. How are you feeling?

    Okay overall, better than I thought I'd be at this point. My sciatica flares up if I walk too much or bend over too often, I did a bunch of yard work the other day and was limping by the end of it because my lower back hurt so bad on the right side. 

    3. Any appointments this week?

    Nothing until the 9th

    4. Rants/raves/questions?

    Baby is frank breech and I've started doing the spinning babies exercises and I get light headed so quickly from being upside down, I feel like my brain is going to explode from the pressure, not sure if this is a pregnancy thing or if I've always been this sensitive but I have to have DH with me to help me get back up after or else I'd probably get stuck and pass out lol

    5. GTKY: What's your favorite summer or warm weather activity?

    We love having bonfires, hiking, going to the lake (5 minute drive), cook-outs etc. I won't be doing any hiking this year but I'm excited to wear LO hiking next year

  • 1. How many weeks are you? What size is baby?

    I'm 29 weeks and 5 days.  I'm crossing my fingers for some more growth.  He measured at 2 pounds 11 ounces at my growth scan last Friday.  They said that was 28th percentile.  They weren't super concerned because I'm very petite, but I was still wishing for 50th percentile.  @ckmb_knottie Not sure about the other ladies, but they told me his weight/percentile at my growth scan ultrasound.  It's an extra ultrasound we had to get based on our initial NT scan/ first tri results.  

    2. How are you feeling?

    Feeling good, just a bit sore in the hips when I wake up.  Definitely getting winded more often.  Beginning to get anxious about the birth, but hoping that our birthing classes help!

    3. Any appointments this week?

    Next week for my 30 week check-up!

    4. Rants/raves/questions?

    Wondering if any of the other moms were recommended another growth scan after the first growth scan.  When we initially scheduled the one for 28 weeks, we got the impression that it was going to be a one time check-in, but we are going back at 32 weeks for additional growth scan.

    The doctors also said my iron is slightly low and I could go on an iron supplement, but of course, this was in a voicemail.  The week got away from me and now I feel so guilty that I haven't called back and got my prescription for it yet.

    5. GTKY: What's your favorite summer or warm weather activity?

    I love going to the beach!  We live by a lake and I am so excited to put my feet in the sand!

  • @julybabybear I have us every 4 weeks because of a marginal cord insertion which sometimes causes less growth. So far baby has always been between the 48th and 50th percentile. We will continue the us just in case. I wouldn't be too concerned, unfortunately baby weight measurements are often off! I was told I needed iron and I just went to buy some, I'm usimg the rainbow light brand.

    @ckmb_knottie I was always told the baby weight at all the us I've done, they told me that as well as the growth percentile for the head, femur, etc. At my last us all parts were literally on time or a day behind, except the head which was of course 2 days ahead (help!) Lol
  • @kissableviv Oh!  Maybe I'll just go pick that up instead.  I didn't realize it was something I didn't need a prescription for.  Thanks! :)
  • 1. How many weeks are you? What size is baby?

    29 weeks 1 day - acorn squash or pineapple 

    2. How are you feeling?

    Tired,anxious, frustrated at being tired, trying to get it all done at once, then having more anxiety. Hello vicious cycle. 

    3. Any appointments this week?

    No, not until next week

    4. Rants/raves/questions?

    Sleeping is becoming an issue. I have like 5 pillows I sleep with. The ankle & foot swelling is getting annoying, anyone have nice wide stretchy shoes they can recommend?? 

    5. GTKY: What's your favorite summer or warm weather activity?

    Staying indoors with the a/c blasting! I live in Miami where the summers are awful.
