  • Due date/W+D: May 2, 8+4

    Baby is the size of a(n): Raspberry 

    Any appointments? Questions?:  Friday we have our first ultrasound with our OB office!  

    Rants/Raves?: So much weepiness this time around.  I cried because I saw a service for selling misshapen produce and I felt bad for the cucumber.  BUT we are going to Disneyland Thursday!

    How are you feeling?: Super anxious for Friday, and nausea on and off.  Freaking exhausted and weepy.

     Chris Pratt

     Jared Padalecki

     Ryan Reynolds

     Evan Peters - it makes me feel super weird to admit this one because he does such dark stuff. Also, for anyone watching the current season of American Horror Story... Cody Fern is climbing the ranks quickly.

  • @mrsdee15 ;Thanks for starting the thread! I have also been so weepy. Even random Facebook posts about people I don't know make me cry more lol

    Due date/W+D: 5/1, 8 weeks 5 days! 

    Baby is the size of a(n): gummy bear :)

    Any appointments? Questions?: first ob appointment Wednesday, hoping to be able to hear a heartbeat on doppler! 

    Rants/Raves?: not really...

    How are you feeling?: still tired, waking up at 4am every night so I haven't been sleeping very well lately. Also vomited today at work and wasn't able to make it to a bathroom so I had to use a garbage can right in the middle of everything... embarrassing! 

    GTKY - Way back in season 3 of Friends, Chandler mentioned having a "freebie" list - a list of your top 5 celebrities to sleep with.  Who is on your list? Hm... don't think about this a ton, but definitely Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans! My husband has a similar look, so I definitely have a type ;)

  • Due date/W+D: May 5th/8w 1d

    Baby is the size of a(n): Raspberry or Lego

    Any appointments? Questions?: My first appt and dating scan are Friday! I'm so excited and nervous!

    Rants/Raves?: Bought some side panel maternity pants and they are way more comfy than I expected! Last time I did full panel only. Hopefully they stay comfy.

    How are you feeling?: I feel like a bag of asses. Awful cold thanks to my wonderful offspring and I'm sad that I can't take the good drugs. The runny/stuffy nose is making my nausea way worse and I just want to lay down, but can't :(

    I have been trying to get back to this all day!

    Due date/W+D: 8w1d

    Baby is the size of a(n): a raspberry 

    Any appointments? Questions?: meet with my first midwife Wednesday. I am super excited. My backup OB appointment isn't until 10/8. 

    Rants/Raves?: none really. My childhood best friend just confirmed his flight details to Washington about an hour ago so yay for seeing him for the first time in 6 years, even if it's not for great reasons (his mom's in the hospital with leukemia) I guess I could rant about cancer lol. 

    How are you feeling?: I'm feeling great. A little insomnia but that could be due to the chainsaw that has replaced my fiancé at night...

    Jason Momoa


    Chris Hemsworth


    Kit Harington

  • @MalonT23 So glad your ultrasound went well!  

    And for all of you that mentioned Chris Evans, you're right.


    Thank you all for humoring me with this GTKY - it started out as a joke with my best friend, we've kept our running "lists" since we were about 14.

  • @mrsdee15 so accurate. All the lists are pretty spot on😂 It was so hard to get only 5
    mrsdee15
  • @fuscok88 My best friend and I started also keeping a top 10 in case something happens to make one of the top 5 fall out of the list a few years ago... it is hard to narrow down!

  • Due date/W+D: 5/5, 8wks, 2 days

    Baby is the size of a(n): raspberry, but the bump app also said he/she would fit on a dime, so it must be a little raspberry.

    Any appointments? Questions?: First appointment is tomorrow.

    Rants/Raves?: I cannot wait to be "out" so I can start wearing maternity pants to work. I have like 3 pairs of "fat pants" in a size up that I'm cycling through right now, and none of them are really any good.

    How are you feeling?: Nausea has struck. I threw up for the first time a few days ago. Hopefully the last time too. Also, apparently I'm getting a cold, so I'm sure that will be a wonderful addition to my general not-good feelings.

    Hmm... never thought about this before. I'm gonna go with

    Ryan Gosling

    My sex drive must really be nonexistent because I can't even think of anyone else.

  • Due date/W+D: May 7 / 8+0

    Baby is the size of a(n): 2x2 Lego brick 

    Any appointments? Questions?: just had our first ultrasound today! Everything looks great and right on schedule!

    Rants/Raves?: I managed to throw DD2 a nice 2nd birthday party this weekend at our house for about 30 people, despite nausea and fatigue that made cleaning and cooking twice as hard.

    How are you feeling?: Nauseated and exhausted. The usual. 

    GTKY - KRIS BRYANT. ❤❤❤❤

  • Due date/W+D: May 7th. Yesterday I was 7w+6 (now 8w)

    Baby is the size of a(n): pygmie seahorse (thanks for the random animals, Ovia)

    Any appointments? Questions?: No appts still. Just waiting for 2 weeks! Ugh...

    Rants/Raves?:  Rant: heartburn blows. Raves: my in-laws are here for two weeks to help with DS while my husband is at sales training in Ohio for 12 days (he might earn Rookie of the Year! FX!!). Thank goodness for dedicated grandparents! 

    How are you feeling?: Eh. Could be better but could be waaaay worse. Beyond heartburn, I have zero complaints.

    Gosh, I wish I was better at this sort of thing. But I don’t know many celeb names. Awful, I know. Super lame.  I looked at all your gifs though and I’m kind of drooling over some of your picks.  Huge fan of @zuuls_mom picks for sure. OMG the hotness of those men! 😍

  • It has taken me forever to get around to checking in. It always seems to involved for the few minutes I can steal to jump on at work and I've been passing out at 7:30 with DD2 every single night this week.

    Due date/W+D: May 4, 8w4d

    Baby is the size of a(n): raspberry

    Any appointments? Questions?: October 9.

    Rants/Raves?: I am currently underemployed. I have my Masters in Library and Information Science, but I'm working as a library technician, which only requires a 2 year college diploma. Today, one of my coworkers told me that a librarian position is probably going to be opening up at the local public library. I would be an excellent candidate for it, but considering I'll be visibly pregnant by the time the position is listed and interviews come around, I think I've missed my chance. They're not supposed to discriminate, but since I'll have a full year off, I'd be shocked if they didn't.

    How are you feeling?: Like garbage, but that's nothing new.

  • @k2k2tog Go for it!! Both my coworker and I were visibly pregnant when we were hired on (a few years apart)! Unfortunately for our boss this time around we have the same due date 😳.  It's totally possible you'll still be counted in the running.
    k2k2tog
  • @k2k2tog I say you try for it too. If it’s a dream job and what you have a passion for, it’s worth a shot. Sure, you may not get the position but if you are the right fit, the right person for their team, they will make it work on their end too.

    Two years ago we hired the science teacher for our team when she was 5 months pregnant. She started the new school year with us and two weeks later was out for 4 months for maternity leave. We hired her because she was the best for our team and we didn’t care if she was pregnant. Best decision we’ve made as a team ever.
    brie_and_almondsk2k2tog
  • @fuscok88 @MaggieG183 thanks ladies. I probably will submit a resume. I have heard of people being hired just before or even during their mat leave. One of the (few) downsides of the Canadian maternity leave is that I do think it makes a woman in family-creating years less attractive to employers because they pretty much have no choice but to hire someone to cover the longer leave. 

    Aaand, I’m not 100% sure I want to get back into public librarianship. So much of a children’s librarian’s job happens on Saturdays.

  • @k2k2tog I bet! The day we hit the library is Sunday! Best read aloud is on Sunday morning and then we can get stocked up on books for the week’s bedtimes and nap times. Makes it hard with a young family at home.
