Baby is the size of a(n): mango (although I'm kind of attached to last week's sweet potato - DH have taken to referring to the fetus as a sweet potato)
Any appointments? Questions?: Anatomy scan is tomorrow.
Rants/Raves?: Heartburn / lots of energy, finally!
How are you feeling?: No complaints at the moment, other than that I'm gaining weight too fast and having heartburn.
GTKY - What is your favorite go-to weeknight meal (stolen from group 4)? I've been doing a lot of soups and stews lately, but I can't seem to tolerate tomatoes any more.
Baby is the size of a(n): four toed hedgehog
Any appointments? Questions?: Still waiting for my specialist appointment. Actually going to call them as soon as I post this to see how much longer they're going to make me wait.
Rants/Raves?: Rant: Why did my specialist want to see me the day after receiving a referral for a cystectomy but now that I'm having complications he's taking forever to get me an appointment! Rave: I'm going out for ribs with a few girls from work tonight! I also mustered up the strength to change a leaky tap so I can get people over to wash our 50kg dog! She's so stinky and her dog washer is on their way over now
How are you feeling?: Average. Yesterday was good, today was particularly bad. Just taking it day by day.
GTKY - What is your favorite go-to weeknight meal (stolen from group 4)? satay chicken or green chicken curry
ETA: I just called my surgeon's office and they told me they've not even showed my referral to the specialist and I'll just have to come in at my post op appointment. Like, did they not even read the referral saying "since surgery she has had severe nausea and fatigue, and abnormal LFTs. I'm not sure of the cause of this and would appreciate your opinion. She is due to see you in February but I believe she should be reviewed earlier". I'm literally in tears.
ETA2: My surgeon's office just called me back saying "sorry we were confused about your referral and thought it was just a letter" and have booked me in for Friday which is the earliest appointment they have as he is still on holidays and that is his first day back. Feeling somewhat relieved now.
Baby is the size of a(n): ping pong paddle (funny side story - my Bf’s daughter found a ping pong ball and attempted to throw it in a cup. I told her nope and she was like but that’s where it’s suppose to go 😂 she’s 3)
Any appointments? Questions?: January 31st is an extensive ultrasound and the anatomy one. My BF’s siblings have a history of heart problems so we are getting a super extensive one done.
Rants/Raves?: Rants - I really hate having placenta previa. I feel like I never have any luck at all. It’s super hard to refrain from sex with my guy because we are just that attracted to each other and well we both love it lol. Raves - I’m finally getting excited about being pregnant. I don’t have any cravings but just being excited is a game changer.
How are you feeling?: wonderful even though I’m trying to find a job.
GTKY - What is your favorite go-to weeknight meal (stolen from group 4)? Anything - I don’t have any cravings sadly.
Baby is the size of a(n): banana
Any appointments? Questions?: Anatomy Scan scheduled for Friday. I'm annoyed because I was at my OB a few weeks ago and they told me I would have to do the scan this week but wouldn't give me the number to schedule it or the formal referral. So when they did give it to me, I called right away because it has to be done this week. Sure enough the hospital said, "oh, we are all booked but you have to come this week so we will fit you in." I just KNOW i'm going to be sitting there for over an hour waiting to get in to be seen in what is already long visit. I'm annoyed with my OB that they wouldn't just give me the referral a few weeks ago.
Rants/Raves?: See above (Rant);
How are you feeling?: I feel alright. I got to go swimming over the weekend which was a good way to get some low impact exercise. I'm trying to stay more active in general.
GTKY - What is your favorite go-to weeknight meal (stolen from group 4)? Well tbh I don't do the cooking in my house, my husband cooks and plans all meals. He likes to cook every part of a meal (like down to making sauces or seasonings that I would just buy in a jar) so I just let him do his thing...but when I'm in a rush I'm queen of making a tuna melt (though less so during pregnancy) but it's so quick and easy!
Baby is the size of a(n): As long as a slice of bacon?
Any appointments? Questions?: Anatomy Ultrasound is next week!
Rants/Raves?: This pregnancy has been super different than my last. I got PUPPS at 17 weeks last time and was hospitalized with an unknown pain at 19 weeks! This time has been a little easier physically, but I've been waaaay more emotional.
How are you feeling?: At 19 weeks, I feel like it hit me full force. I started showing and automatically started walking differently and having to take more breaks.
GTKY - What is your favorite go-to weeknight meal (stolen from group 4)? Anything I can put in the slow cooker and have done by the time I get home from work.
Baby is the size of a(n): Banana, but she's also like 10 oz
Any appointments? Questions?: I had my anatomy scan last week and I just had an OB appointment. Everything seems to be going really well, so I don't have any questions. My next appointment won't be for about 4 more weeks.
Rants/Raves?: Rave - so glad to be done with the worst of my MS!!
How are you feeling?: Much better. Sometimes I just seem to be really tired out of nowhere. This past weekend I was pretty useless and just laid around most of the time napping. It was wonderful, but also very unproductive.
GTKY - What is your favorite go-to weeknight meal (stolen from group 4)? Spag-bol (spaghetti bolognese). I usually make a huge batch of sauce and then freeze it into two-night increments. All I have to do is pull it out in the morning and by the time we get home for dinner, it's ready to be heated up and I just cook up some pasta. Yum!
