How far along are you? How big is baby?
26 weeks today I don’t know about fruit or vegetable size, but yay viability!
How are you feeling this week? Any new symptoms?
Irritable, puking, and my hip/SI joint is getting bad. I can’t get in to PT for 2 more weeks.
Rant: I have to do the 3 hr GD tolerance test tomorrow morning. Really hoping I pass. And even more, hoping I don’t throw up and have to do it twice. I hate that I am giving up my one morning this week that I have time to get caught up at work squandered on this.
Rave: I am so melty-hearted about my big girl who is getting so grown up. Today she asked to see “pictures of the skeletons of the stars and moon like from a spaceship.”
GTKY: What are your maternity leave plans? (How long, will your SO take time, too? etc.)
I’m taking 12 weeks off. Almost half will be paid. I’m contemplating (dreaming about) seeing about doing part time for 6 more months. Probably not going to be able to, but I can dream. At work I think they realllly don’t want to lose more people, so I think they would work with me. But it depends on budget.
DH will have the 3-4 weeks off without having to take leave, because it’s semester break. And then he’ll take 2 weeks as primary caregiver at the 3 month mark when I return to work.
How far along are you? How big is baby? 26 weeks and I think she’s not going to be small!
How are you feeling this week? Any new symptoms? Doing ok but not happy about the huge and sore varicose veins in my right leg.
Rants/Raves/Questions/Dear Diary? Had a nuero follow up for DD yesterday and she reported that DD’s delays are now minor and she is starting to close her developmental gaps!
GTKY: What are your maternity leave plans? (How long, will your SO take time, too? etc.) 12 weeks of leave for me. About 4 weeks of leave for DH maybe a little more. Hoping my STD insurance isn’t as cumbersome/late to process this time around. I’m the breadwinner and maternity leave will def impact our family finances. But the healing, bonding and establishing BFing are all so important.
@mcgeeva Do I have a long torso? I feel like every part of me is short. That support belt does sound like a pain! I am going to see my chiropractor today, I wonder if he has any recommendations for support while running.
@Katzalia Have good luck with your GD test! I wish I could go part time for a while too. I'd love to go part time for the first year, but I don't think we can afford it since I am the primary bread winner.
@Erinka That's great news!! I bet that was such a relief for you.
@katy0990 thanks for the honesty. I know the BF journey can be rough, but I guess I don't fully understand it. I didn't think about how demand dictates supply, so I'll need to pump even if SO bottle feeds MOTN. Ugh, so much responsibility! Lol
