@emmaaa I am so sorry for your loss. Sounds like you and your DH had to make a hard, compassionate choice.
@kls123 Glad Teddy is doing better, my 8-year-old pup has about 1 emergency a year and you’re right every time is a roller coaster! Glad it was just a stomach flu/something antibiotics are clearing up.
@leighbrek I think people in general need to STFU with unsolicited advice. There are SO MANY ways to be a wonderful parent, and I think what you’re doing sounds incredibly thoughtful towards both your dogs and baby. Kudos to you.
@BitterBetty12 No AC? I think I would strike. Do you at least have a fan?
@kaf1788 UGH sounds like you have a crazy week – hopefully Cape Cod will be nice and relaxing, and the fridge/sink will be fixed ASAP when you get back.
EDD? Jan 6th
Symptoms? Most of my symptoms have subsided the last week or so, which is great.
Upcoming appointments? Had my anatomy scan yesterday (everything looked good but LO was moving a lot, so having another scan in a month); next midwife appointment Monday. Also found out I have an anterior placenta during the scan yesterday, which explains why I only feel her about every other day, and only towards the bottom of my uterus.
R/R/Q: Rant and Rave are the same thing – Mom visited this weekend and we did maternity clothes shopping, started a registry, and are doing all sorts of things that make this pregnancy feel more real. This has kicked my PGAL anxiety into high gear and the night before my a/s I was reading all about the process and procedure and causes of late miscarriage/stillbirth, because I am a crazy person. I kept thinking the longer I was pregnant the less anxious I would be about loss, but that has not turned out to be the case. I find myself enjoying these events in the moment (registry, for example), but then later driving myself crazy about it (now that I’ve registered I’m def having a m/c because I’m being too cocky acting like this is real). Anyway, love to all my other anxious/PGAL mamas out there!!GTKY: Do you have any pets? What kind and what are their names? We have a rescue lab mix named Higgins. He’s 8 ½ and will always be my first baby. Here’s a pic his daycare sent us for Easter which is too cheezy and perfect not to share
Getting short of breath walking up the stairs, probably pregnancy related but I also have not been to the gym in months, I'm starting to get more energy back so I need to make it a priority to up my activity level Upcoming appointments?
I have my anatomy scan tomorrow! R/R/Q:
I'm thinking about starting to potty train DS again, he seemed interested a few weeks ago but now when I ask him if he needs to pee on the potty he yells No at me lol so we will see how it goes.GTKY: Do you have any pets? What kind and what are their names?
I have a cat that's both inside/outside, his name is Hendrix. He wandered into my husbands work 6 years ago and he just brought him home. We have 2 dogs, both lab mixes. Blue is going to be 6 and Gus just turned 4, I think? They drive my nuts sometimes and I hate vacuuming up the hair, but I love them to pieces !
