How are you feeling?:
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal babymoon?
Due date/W+D: 5/28, 5 weeks tomorrow
Baby is the size of a(n): Poppyseed today, appleseed tomorrow
Any appointments? Questions?: Not until 10/16
Rants/Raves?: DS has a cold and it's making me sad. He's totally happy and fine but poor guy is coughing, can't breathe through his nose, and is dripping snot. He hasn't had a cold since he was maybe 4 mo (10.5 mo now) so I kind of forget the drill. I'll make H use the nose Freida tonight and I think I'll sit with DS in a steamy bathroom.
How are you feeling?: Fine. I get kind of nervous sometimes due to lack of symptoms but my pregnancy tests are still getting stronger (test line is really dark, control line is light) and I'm not having any sign of bleeding so that makes me feel better.
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal babymoon? First time around it would have been an all inclusive resort in Bermuda. Short flight, a hammock in the ocean, people to deliver food and drinks to me. We actually went to Europe which was fun but I underestimated how tiring it would be to walk miles and miles. This time around I'd love to go to Banff but likely we won't have one. We will be going to Hawaii sometime in late winter but that's not by choice and will most certainly not be a babymoon (visiting ILs)
Baby is the size of a(n): sesame seed
Any appointments? Questions?: Apparently my doctors office likes to confirm the insurance and will call tomorrow with all of the details and schedule.
Rants/Raves?: My boobs are gigantic and I am so bloated. My clothes were already tight and now I feel like a whale.
How are you feeling?: Mostly okay except my sleep schedule is all out of whack. I can't keep my eyes open at 7:30 and then I am wide awake at 3 am
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal babymoon? Not sure if we will take one or not but something spa like or warm with a pool would be nice!
@DuchessOfCambridge I'm jealous of your trip to Hawaii. I'd love to go this winter- we had to cancel our trip to Charleston this month b/c of the hurricane, so we have enough frequent flier miles and credit card hotel points to do it for cheap, my issue is leaving DD. I am certainly not bringing her on the 8 hour flight from Chicago. We have yet to leave her for more than 24 hours and that was just once. Between my parents, my ILs, and my husband's cousin, we could string together enough help, but I worry that I will be too sad without her and the trip won't be fun for us.
May 27th (I think) 5+0 today
Baby is the size of a(n): appleseed!
Any appointments? Questions?: my betas doubled well last week and my first appointment is October 5th where we should get an u/s to make sure all is okay.
Rants/Raves?: Ugh my dog got skunked last night for the 2nd time in 2 weeks. I was already in bed, so I made DH deal with it. There is a actually a guy who runs a service deskunking dogs in the area. He is fantastic and got to our house quickly, but damn he is expensive. DH needs to turn the light on out side when he lets te dog out at night.
Ughm I had the WORST sour stomach and heartburn Saturday night into Sunday. I barely slept and was vomiting. Barely ate yesterday, but feeling much better today which is anxiety-inducing.
I would say Hawaii but I had an awful experience flying 4 hours to Las Vegas at 20 weeks with DD, so I would keep the flight under 3 hours this time. Maybe an early spring trip to Florida to sit at the beach, now that the Zika warnings are a bit better. My parents live in Orlando so we could bring DD and leave her with them while we chill at the beach and read books.
Due date/W+D: May 30 / 4wk 4 days
Baby is the size of a(n): poppyseed
Any appointments? Questions?: October 12th is my first appt. Q: this is my first pregnancy so should I still be taking HPTs? I only have one left and I haven't had any spotting or bleeding to date.
Rants/Raves?: We told our parents this weekend. Everyone was surprised and very happy.
How are you feeling?: OK - still having br issues and I am SO tired by 8PM. Also, it feels like my bbs are getting more sore by the hour. But on the upside no signs of nausea!
GTKY - what is your ideal babymoon? I really want to go to Hawaii but not sure we can commit the travel time to do it.
Due date/W+D: May 26/ 5+1
Baby is the size of a(n): appleseed
Any appointments? Questions?: nope. Still deciding on whether I want to go with a midwife or OB. I need to hurry and make that first appt
How are you feeling?: Tired. Nausea is starting. Random triggers and aversions starting too.
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal babymoon? Somewhere quiet. No people. Lots of fresh air. And a huge comfy bed.
Due date/W+D: 5/30, 4+4
Baby is the size of a(n): poppy seed I guess?
Any appointments? Questions?: Calling to set up an appt at a new doctor in a few minutes
Rants/Raves?: I really wish I felt more pregnant so it felt real, right now I feel like I'm just kidding myself when I think about being pregnant (but I know I should be grateful for feeling relatively normal now). But DH made a silly joke last night about the "crazy pregnant lady" which means he's no longer stressed like he was when I initially showed him the test
How are you feeling?: Mostly fine, only noticing tiny changes because BTDT, nose bleeds are apparently a thing early now, I feel my uterus stretching, and insomnia but not overly tired?
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal babymoon? I'd love to go to a cabin in the mountains that has a gorgeous view and a balcony with rocking chairs, the temperature would be cool early fall-ish so we could sleep with windows open and drink coffee on the porch...and DDs at the grandparents of course!
Due date/W+D: May 22/5+5
Baby is the size of a(n): The opening of a straw
Any appointments? Questions?: Making my first appointment today!! Hoping to get in earlier than 8 weeks as I'm concerned with the possibility of another miscarriage.
Rants/Raves?: My only complaint is that I can't join hubby for a beer during the game anymore.
How are you feeling?: Sleepy mostly, my back aches more than usual after closing the bar, nervous, apprehensive, excited
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal babymoon? I'd love to make it to Europe or SE Asia before baby comes, but that's way out of the question! We do have a trip planned to go visit my fam for Thanksgiving, but it'll be bittersweet as we're going to celebrate my late father and scatter his ashes.
Due date/W+D: May 25th/ 5 weeks + 2 days
Any appointments? Questions?: First OB appointment and ultrasound are scheduled for the afternoon of 10/10. Hoping we get to hear a heartbeat!
Rants/Raves?: Not really. Hubby has been looking for a new job for a very long time, and praying something works out ASAP now that we have this third little one on the way!
How are you feeling?: A little crampy and bloated, but pretty good overall.
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal babymoon? Napa! One of our favorite trips we have ever taken. However the whole not being able to drink situation does put a damper on things. LOL. So I guess we will have to settle for a weekend away in the Poconos this Spring before baby arrives if my in-laws are willing to watch the kids.
Due date/W+D: May 23rd/ 5 weeks 4 days
Baby is the size of a(n): pencil eraser
Any appointments? Questions?: I need to force myself to go to the Navy clinic tomorrow so they can confirm my pregnancy and get me a referral!
Rants/Raves?: My husband will be away for the week so I'm a little grumpy about having to do everything around the house.
How are you feeling?: feeling pretty good. Some mild nausea in the mornings, tiredness, and sore boobs.
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal babymoon? We are on kid #3 so I doubt we will take one since we never did before. We do want to go to Ireland someday though.
Baby is the size of a(n): fleur de sel
Any appointments? Questions?: First midwife appt on Nov. 1. It feels like an eternity away right now, but I know the next month and a bit is going to fly by.
Rants/Raves?: I mentioned it the other day, but it snowed here Saturday morning. The girls wanted to build a snowman so DH was helping them make a monster of an Olaf yesterday afternoon. The snow is obviously really wet, heavy snow at this time of year and the middle snowball was so massive he couldn't lift it on his own. I tried to help, still couldn't budge the darn thing. But I did budge something, in my hips. Holy Hanna, I can barely walk today. Neither of us thought it was going to be that bad, otherwise we wouldn't have tried.
How are you feeling?: Aside from my old lady hips, I'm feeling pretty good.
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal babymoon? I would love to go to the Blue Lagoon in Iceland for a relaxing getaway. If DH takes the job in the Netherlands I will definitely see if the grandparents can cover the kids for a week or so, then he and I will leave a little early and take a baby moon/before new job holiday on his way over. Then I'd come back. If we stay, we will probably just go to Jasper or Banff for a few days.
Baby is the size of a(n): An orange seed
Any appointments? Questions?: No schedule appointments but I ended up leaving my work meeting today to go to the Immediate Care Center due to asthma. The doctor I saw was pregnant, herself. 7 months and she was so tiny!
Rants/Raves?: I wish I hond just stay home for the rest of this pregnancy. Im immensely pooped.
How are you feeling?: Nebulizer only helped for a while. Still gasping for air if I move around even a little. So exhausted. Also, my nasal sinuses are inflamed so thayya's making breathing worse. Anybody else have this issue, yet? Everything swells up during pregnancy.
GTKY - What is your ideal babymoon? After having my daughter, i honestly cannot imagine going on vacation without her. I would miss her way too much.
Due date/W+D: 5/26 5 weeks + 1 day
Baby is the size of a(n): apple seed
Any appointments? Questions?: Made our first appointment for next Monday 10/1. Hoping for an u/s at that time.
Rants/Raves?: I woke up this morning with a sore throat and runny nose and it's gotten worse throughout the day. Blech. On the plus side we got beta's back last week 374 at 11dp5dt (16 dpo) and 1310 at 13dp5dt (18 dpo), and graduated from our RE's office.
How are you feeling?: Today having a cold is overriding any pregnancy symptoms, but lately some round ligament pain, sore breasts, exhaustion, dizziness and strong sense of smell making me a little queasy. M/S was awful with DS1 & DS2, so I'm both anxious for it to start so I can check that box, and dreading it.
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal babymoon? We have a trip to Puerto Vallarta area planned for early April (we're traveling with friends)... I was going to ask the OB if that's doable or if I'm out of my mind and need to cancel the reservation... If not there maybe Roatan or Hawaii between December and February. Now that we have a 1st grader we have to plan around school break. Haha! I would love to go to the Blue Lagoon it's on our bucket list.
Due date/W+D: May 25th 5w + 2d
Baby is the size of a(n): appleseed
Any appointments? Questions?: I have an appointment on Wednesday. I'm excited and anxious for it.
How are you feeling?: Exhausted, nauseous if I go too far between meals or snacks. I'm also still nursing 10 month old DS and feeding him is excruciating. Feels like razorblades on my nipples!
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal babymoon? Hmmm I can't decide...either Hawaii or Ireland.
Due date/W+D: 5/22 5+5
Baby is the size of a(n): idk
Any appointments? Questions?: first appt is Friday; just to confirm pregnancy. I'll be talking about whether I should continue current meds, whether to add iron to my vitamin regimen, and some concerning symptoms (see below)
Rants/Raves?: rant- I swear I'm about to quit my job, also... I gagged on my vitamins this am threw up in my hand and then had to explain to my director (who doesn't know I'm pg) why I was cleaning random places on the floor with windex and paper towels 😳 It was super fun.
How are you feeling?: very little nausea but breasts are still really sore, nightly indigestion, super emotional, scatterbrained, woke up every 2 hours last night to pee and I've had a couple runs of tachycardia >125 bpm lasting > an hour....I seriously though I was having a heart attack and no it's not anxiety.
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal Babymoon? Anywhere where my cell doesn't work and clients can't track me... I need a mental health week.
Due date/W+D: 5/26 5w2d
Baby is the size of a(n): lentil
Any appointments? Questions?: I set my first appointment and us for October 15th 😒 sounds like forever and a day!
Rants/Raves?: Is anyone else a little overwhelmed with catching up on all the threads? I'm so tired that I forget to pick up my phone and catch up with you girls!
How are you feeling?: Tired, nauseas, sleepy, can't sleep. Moody half the time but very excited still. I smile randomly when I think about LO
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal babymoon? Hmmm... Either Hawaii, Nashville (outskirts relaxing not bar hopping 😂), or big bear. Just somewhere to put my feet up and listen to nature.
aby is the size of a(n): the inside of a straw?
Any appointments? Questions?: Ultrasound and blood work tomorrow. I can't remember if 6 weeks has an ultrasound or not.
Rants/Raves?: I'm still pissed about open school night tomorrow. I have to be there 6-8:45, which is garbage. That makes it a 13 hour work day, and who wants to be at a school until almost 9:00 at night?!? Certainly not my non-English speaking parents!
How are you feeling?: Fine, other than occasional cramps, but those are less frequent. And tired, like we all agreed in that thread.
Due date/W+D: 5/26 5+2
Baby is the size of a(n): Not sure?
Any appointments? Questions?: I have a check up Friday. I don't know if they will do anything.
How are you feeling?: Pretty good! My husband thinks I have a glow but I'm not so sure about that.
GTKY - Stealing from another group last week - what is your ideal babymoon? Pretty much anywhere! I would be happy going to Hawaii or California again.
