Re: Tuesday Ticker Change 5/1

  • How far along today? How big is baby? 30 weeks - a large cabbage!  

    New/Interesting/Festering Symptoms I have no torso, so baby is officially all up in my ribs now. My feet and legs have also started to retain water so I bought 4 new pair of compression socks from Amazon.

    Appointments/US this week Nope, not this week.

    Random Questions Has anyone else had crazy dry skin and itchy on your bump?  This did not happen with my first and I'm not sure if I'm using crappier coconut oil this time or what. 

    Rants/Raves This baby is going to be nameless because DH sucks at baby names.  I wish he would just let me name him without any input. 

    GTKY: What's the #1 food or drink that you miss and can't wait to have when no longer pregnant? 
    Definitely beer.  I've even taken 1-2 sips of DH's occasionally lately.  I didn't miss any alcohol with my first, but this one I keep really wanting a beer!  I was so concerned about drinking when nursing after not drinking all pregnancy that DH bought me the little 6 oz baby beers after DD was born.  Hahahaha.

  • How far along today? How big is baby? 27 weeks baby is the size of a head of lettuce 

    New/Interesting/Festering Symptoms: leg cramps! I’ve been getting the worst Charley horses in my calves at night. Sometimes they happen consecutively—record has been 4x in a row. Trying to get more potassium/magnesium in my diet. Unfortunately not much I can do and apparently it’s common if you are active. Still get random rashes in my armpit area. Also my blood work last week showed I’m slightly anemic so I’m now adding iron pills and worried about how my body will react. 

    Appointments/US this week: no appointments this week. 

    Random Questions

    Rants/Raves: ranting about those terrible leg cramps! 

    GTKY: What's the #1 food or drink that you miss and can't wait to have? SUSHI! I thought I would miss wine or cocktails a lot more but they actually kind of turn me off since being pregnant.

    Random Questions
    Has anyone else experienced being tired the entire pregnancy? With my daughter I had energy mid way and felt good, but not with this pregnancy. 
    Rants/Raves
    Rave we just purchased our new home and we are excited. Rant due to being so tired I have little energy to help get out home ready to put on the market. My husband has been pulling all the weight and I feel really bad. 
    GTKY: What's the #1 food or drink that you miss and can't wait to have when no longer pregnant?
    I would just prefer to eat a decent sized meal. I can’t each much but always feel hungry and it is so annoying.

  • @MichelleAG05 Yes I have little red bumps on my bump. I attempt to keep it moisturized which has helped. The bigger it gets the itcher it is. Last pregnancy I had PUPS which was torcher. My stomach itching is a cake walk compared to having PUPS. 
  • @ssthomps - yes, I don't think mine is PUPS so I shouldn't complain!  I've been tired this entire pregnancy too.  I'm chalking it up to being borderline anemic and chasing after a toddler this time.  On days when I up my meat/iron intake I don't feel like I need to go to bed by 8:30, which is nice.

    Sushi, which I know I can technically eat (especially because my favorite is deep fried LOL) The occasional glass of wine would be nice too.

    Now that shandies are coming out for the summer, I would have to say beer.  I got my husband a pack of pink lemonade shandy beers at the grocery store on Sunday and I'm sad I can't have them too.
