    • How far along? 27 weeks 4 days
    • How are you feeling this week? Feeling good, just worn out with the daily family plans this past week and still battling a lingering stuffy head. 
    • Rants/Raves? Questions? Rant: Had my glucose test Friday...yuck! Rave: Had a fun family bay shower on Saturday. I think this little girl has 10x the clothes I have already! Thankful for lots of nieces with cute hand me downs!
    • Any upcoming appointments? Friday had my OB check-in. Still waiting on glucose results, but excited to start going in every 2 weeks now. Growth scan is next month which we can't wait to see LO again! 
    • GTKY: Any fun plans for New Year's? Going to MH's uncle's house. He throws a big NYE party every day and my MIL is in town. Trying to figure out how I can get home before midnight lol

    • How far along? 21 weeks 
    • How are you feeling this week?  Feeling less anxious- still tired easily. 
    • Rants/Raves? Questions?
    • Any upcoming appointments? Anatomy scan was on Monday and OB check up today. Anatomy scan went well- he wouldn’t cooperate fully so have to go back in 4 weeks for better pictures of his heart but they said from what they saw they don’t expect any problems. 
    • GTKY: Any fun plans for New Year's? Low key- stayed home.



    Griffin5413Bababatty
  • @bpietronicco Glad the AS went well!! I had the same issue, baby was wild and couldn't get a clear picture of the heart, so went back a couple weeks later. I was shocked how much they can change in such a little time. Plus, you should get better pics the 2nd round and it's totally worth it, if nothing else an extra u/s :)

  • Happy New Years ladies!
    @kristimh80 - congrats on 3rd trimester! 
    @uterusdreams what a cute pic! 
    @bpietronicco - glad your AS went well! I am so anxious for mine to finally get here. 
    @bkatp  - I agree that we need new puppy pics. You are brave for adding a new puppy right before baby! 
    • How far along? 15w 4d - we're having a girl
    • How are you feeling this week? - I'm grateful for a semi quiet house after the holidays! 
    • Rants/Raves? Questions? - I feel so much more nervous this pregnancy than with my son. my ob doesn't want me to gain much weight which was the same as last time. I've only put on 2 pounds but now I am freaking out b/c I don't have AS until the 21st and my next ob is the 14th. Plus I have an anterior placenta so I prob won't feel movement for even longer so I have freaked myself out that everything is ok. lol
    • Any upcoming appointments? Ob on teh 14th & anatomy scan the 21st
    • GTKY: Any fun plans for New Year's? - we went a friends for dinner, were home by 7:45 and asleep by 9:15. I feel so old!
    • Feel free to share a HDBD or nursery progress pic if you've started! - no real progress yet. We are converting our office into the new nursery and the guest bedroom will become an office/playroom/guest room. hopefully we'll get the ball rolling in a month or so. lol

  •  Hello ladies, I think I'm in the 2nd tri now :smile: Happy New Year! Nice to meet some new people.
    6/29 baby girl  <3
    In the same boat as @uterusdreams - only really use the app on a real computer and was blissfully unplugged for the past week but back to work today!


    @kristimh80 ;Thank you for getting this started and congrats on 3rd tri!
    @bpietronicco yay for movement!
    @bkatp what kind of puppy did you get? Your child is so lucky to get to grow up with a dog - our pup gives us endless joy (and was my only form of exercise while activity restricted!)
    @Griffin5413 hello friend!
    • How far along? 14w4d
    • How are you feeling this week? lots more energy! I swam, I cooked, also have a yummy recipe to share below
    • Rants/Raves? Questions? I finally learned about anterior placentas a couple of weeks ago and then was a little bummed to find out I had one at my NIPT - anyone else with the same experience? When did you feel your little one?
    • Any upcoming appointments? 1/4 I think it's just a regular check-up/doppler
    • GTKY: Any fun plans for New Year's? went to a chef's table tasting with some friends and then a low key house party - our friends either just had babies this year or are pregnant so we were all pretty tired early on an excited to make it to midnight!
    • Feel free to share a HDBD or nursery progress pic if you've started! We are waiting to move into our new place so we have a pastel green picked for baby girl (yay - results from our past NIPT!) with maybe some sort of jungle theme in the works for the future. If anyone has suggestions for must-haves, please do share!  <3

  • @uterusdreams Best of luck on your glucose test! I was fine with the 1st sip and thought "this isn't too bad," then about died at the end from the sugar rush lol

    @bkatp Yes, we want puppy pics! I didn't feel anything either for awhile due to anterior placenta. For a long time I only felt little flutters and randomness. But sadly, it felt similar to gas so was always wondering. +

    autumnlvs I don't think until around week 22-24 with an anterior placenta did I feel much. Still wasn't a whole lot, but by week 26 it was a lot more noticable. I feel LO daily now punching and kicking.

    Hi ladies, sorry for being MIA as well. We’re wrapping up our two weeks in the U.K. tomorrows our last full day and I’m so excited to being going home. It’s been nice to check out new places but incredibly exhausting. I’m the planner so all the trip planning usually falls to me. Normally I don’t mind but I’ve been so tired that we’ve been having to plan as we go. Plus, my DH wanted to come to England/Scotland (I would have preferred sun and sand) so I’m wanting him to take more ownership of the intinerary. In any event, it’s the most exercise I’ve gotten this pregnancy and I think the brown discharge from the SCH is finally subsiding so hopefully that means I can tick up my exercise once home.

    In any event, congrats to all the 3rd tri graduates! Time is flying by now! 

    • How far along?  18w, June 5
    • How are you feeling this week?  Tired but happy. Counting down until I hit 20 week scan and being officially 50% through pregnancy. 
    • Rants/Raves? Questions?  RAVE:  found out one of my old coworkers whose gone through 5 IVF cycles is also finally pregnant and her EDD is two days before mine. So excited for her bc her journey has been crazy! RANTS: still waiting for visible bump that isn’t just fat! And also noticeable kicks. I am the least observant person so it’s possible I’m feeling things but attributing them to feelings of gas. I vaguely remember my MFM saying I had posterior placenta so I keep thinking any day now (Shrug) 
    • Any upcoming appointments? Anatomy scan on Jan 16 
    • GTKY: Any fun plans for New Year's?  We were so tired but made our way to a local pub down the street from our air bnb. Drank an orangina and toasted at midnight then immediately walked outside to catch fireworks in Edinburgh and then walked home. Lol so old.

  • @bkatp - what a cute puppy!!! makes me want puppy snuggles and kisses. my furbaby is 10 yrs old so he is too grumpy for a puppy. He does great tolerating a 2 year old though. lol Our next dog will be a big one b/c my son absolutely adores big dogs. 
    @autumnlvs - yay for 2nd trimester friend! my ob said that with the anterior placenta I may not feel anything until after 21 or 22 weeks. 
    @northbeach3 ; - sounds like an awesome trip even if it was exhausting! I'm too nervous to take that long of a trip before baby. maybe it's just leaving my son for that long. We are trying to figure out a long weekend that we can do sometime in March before 3rd trimester.

    @bkatp cute dogs!! MH would love a big dog too but it’s too much for me as I will have to do most of the training. No thanks! :)

    @northbeach3 your trip sounds great! Hopefully, you’ll get some rest when you get back. 

    @kristimh80 @Drove2u congrats to moving over to 3rd tri.. well see you guys in a couple of weeks time.

    • How are you feeling this week? Good just busy. 
    • Rants/Raves? Questions? I had my 2nd tri ob visit this morning and oh gosh I love this ob. Hopefully, I’ll get lucky and he will also delivery my baby-the Obs at this office have on-call rotations :( but anyways, my anatomy scan isn’t until 1/[email protected] with a different office and I’m not so patient as to wait because who wants to wait to find our sex? Very few!! With this ob all I had to do was ask for a sneak peak and he jumped up with excitement as well since he also didn’t know that I haven’t found out sex yet!! IT’S A BOY!!!
    • Any upcoming appointments? 1/23 anatomy scan. 
    • GTKY: Any fun plans for New Year's? Relax & sleep more before baby comes! Complete my baby registry sooner than later?!

    My other dog Sasha is very calm and matured even though she is just 2+. This little boy is irritating her and she is getting jealous of him. She is taking all his toys and spoiling them. It takes sometime for them to get used to I guess. Hoping they both will be ready for the new baby boy in May. 

    AFM, I am not sure but I think I felt my first kick today morning. Felt like a flutter. Forgetting that I was pregnant, I was running around like crazy to squeeze in additional impromptu work in my morning rountine before heading to work. Suddenly I felt something in my stomach, I might have over analyzed it to be a kick not really sure. I felt happy though

  • Hello, I’m joining in here for the first time. I haven’t been on the bump in about a month due to a bad cold coupled with PNV which still hasn’t subsided so I had to go get IV fluids and just want to stop feeling sick all the time! With my first pregnancy the sickness ended right at start of 2nd trimester so I was surprised it’s hanging in this time. Anyhow, I’m looking forward to hopefully feeling normal soon and sleeping again! And of course, being back on here again - congrats to everyone moving to third tri!

    • Any upcoming appointments? Just had sono last week and met ob for first time. I really like her. She said to prepare for a c-section as the placenta previa hasn’t moved since last sono. Next appt is anatomy scan at 20 weeks.
    • GTKY: Any fun plans for New Year's? We just had my parents in town. So tired we didn’t stay up.
