GTKY: What is the strangest dream you've had this pregnancy so far?
Due date: March 24
Any appointments? Questions?: Appt. w/ GD dietician Thursday and 32 week appt. on Monday. I’m so excited to see baby on ultrasound for the first time since 20 weeks!
Rants/Raves?: Rave - Snow day today!! I plan to get started on preparing for my maternity leave sub.
How are you feeling?: Pretty good overall. When I read about how uncomfortable some of the ladies in the group are I feel pretty fortunate that I am not experiencing much of that yet. Still 8 more weeks to go though, so it could still be coming!
GTKY: What is the strangest dream you've had this pregnancy so far? I know I have had strange ones, but I can think of them right now. I did have a naughty dream about my college boyfriend the other night though. 😳
Due date: 3/28
Any appointments? Questions?: Growth scan this Thursday. Excited to see this little girl again. Hoping I'm right and she's head down as for what I've been feeling lately.
Rants/Raves?: Rant: Sleep, breathing and eating can be a pain in the butt lately. Rave: Babymoon is next weekend so I'm excited to escape for a few days of rest.
How are you feeling?: Feeling good. Wearing my old lady compression socks today. Work was so busy yesterday due to the holiday and didn't sit for 3 hours and my feet told on me!
GTKY: What is the strangest dream you've had this pregnancy so far? One I can remember was one with a Lion in it. It was just weird all around!
Any appointments? Questions?: appointment yesterday, actually. Baby was measuring ahead for fundal height and is now right on track at 30 weeks. Was anyone offered optional NST's? I was because I'm in the gray area (AMA but not over 40) and just wondering if anyone else was in that same boat. Everything else has been terrific so far in the pregnancy so we're both thinking we probably don't need to do it, but wondering if I'm missing something by not taking advantage of it.
Rants/Raves?: My provider is due a month after me (which is a yay!) but she will be cutting back her call schedule right around my delivery so if I go to 40+ I will have less than a 20% chance of having her at delivery (there are 5 docs in the practice). Definitely now need to meet a couple of the other docs so it's not so "hey, nice to meet you, let me check your cervix" in one breath. The provider I feel like I'd connect with the least is who my next appt is with. Hoping she's a little different one on one, she's very aloof personally.
How are you feeling?: So much joint/SPD pain. Like hurts to walk pain, and forget standing on one foot to put on pants/socks.
GTKY: What is the strangest dream you've had this pregnancy so far? I've had some weirdies, but I can't remember a lot of them. I had one where I was back in school and was participating in a spelling bee.
Due date: 3/29
Any appointments? Questions?: Next appointment is in February.
Rants/Raves?: It’s really hard to stay motivated at work right now. I just want to be home getting ready for baby plus knowing I’ll be out at the end of March until the the next school year makes it hard to motivate myself to do anything!
How are you feeling?: Tired, sore, acid reflux...the usual
GTKY: What is the strangest dream you've had this pregnancy so far? I’ve had some weird ones, but twice I’ve dreamt about baby talking to me like 2 days after she was born. I can’t remember now what she said, but it felt strange when I woke up.
Any appointments? Questions?: 30wk last Friday, got told baby is measuring 33-34 weeks fundal height. Never been told where I was at based on that measurement before, let alone that I was measuring ahead, so that was strange to hear.
Rants/Raves?: Ranting about my back the last couple days. I need to find the perfect mix of activity - on my feet all day Sunday and my back was killing me, sitting at my desk all day yesterday and my back was killing me. I feel so finicky! Raving that my rings are still fitting - found a note from my 1st pregnancy that I had to go down to just my wedding band at 27 weeks - so far I'm almost 4 weeks longer rocking my rings Also raving about this kid moving a ton more than I remember DD moving.
How are you feeling?: Other than my back and some severe indigestion over the weekend I'm still doing pretty good considering how far along we are.
GTKY: What is the strangest dream you've had this pregnancy so far? Last night's dream prompted me to ask you ladies what your strangest dream is because jeepers...I have weird dreams anyway but add pregnancy and they get out there! Last night I helped deliver a friend's baby via c-section and shortly after was in labor for my own baby. Fast forward and I'm at a waterpark with a newborn (not sure the gender) and I'm rocking it in a bikini. Not only are there coworkers of mine there (company outing maybe?) but there's a super hunk of a blonde guy that turns out is my husband & baby's daddy?? Say what? I think I might know who the dreamboat was supposed to be and if he looks like that shirtless in real life I need to reach out and say hi hahahaha.
Due date: March 25
Any appointments? Questions?: Next appointment is next Tuesday, January 29
Rants/Raves?: I'm boring today
How are you feeling?: Tired, huge and having trouble breathing still
GTKY: What is the strangest dream you've had this pregnancy so far? Oh I can not remember them to save my life!
Due date: 3/25ish
Any appointments? Questions?: routine OB appt Friday, chiro next tuesday. I feel like this baby dropped and I had lightening, and then he un-dropped, is that a thing that happens? DD never really dropped, I dont think, so I didn't experience lightening the first time around.
Rants/Raves?: none atm.
How are you feeling?: anxiety is currently getting the better of me, I plan to start sertraline (Zoloft) immediately after delivery.
GTKY: What is the strangest dream you've had this pregnancy so far? Oh man, I don't think I've had any normal ones I can remember. The most vivid one was of hookung up with the character Daredevil from the most recent incarnation on Netflix, so sad they cancelled that show.
@catlady2105 , the nurses did 99% of checking my cervix, and I didn't know any of them before going in, lol. I did end up with a different Ob for my unplanned cesarean, but I dont blame her for us not having a vaginal birth. DD came out 9lb8oz at 41w2d with a 98%+ head. I suspect I just didn't have a 98%+ pelvic opening and I feel like I got the same care I would have from my original Ob (she was out on vacation).
Due date: 3/25
Any appointments? Questions?: I feel like I should have another appointment but I don't think I do until 34 weeks.
Rants/Raves?: My goodness, I have MN winter. Every year I wonder why we can't just move.
How are you feeling?: Actually, pretty ok. The different belly bands and compression things are helping. I'm trying to sit down off and on, which helps, too. Energy could be better, but for sure could be worse. Not too much to complain about over here!
GTKY: What is the strangest dream you've had this pregnancy so far? I wish I remembered. I'm not good at recalling dreams
Any appointments? Questions?: Had one on Tuesday, everything is good. Doing at ultrasound at the 34 week mark.
Rants/Raves?: I'm sorry I've been so busy and neglected the bump! Hopefully things will be calmer here soon.
How are you feeling?: Like a punching bag, still. Ribs are in pain, back, pubic bone. Have stopped taking the stairs at work, wearing compression socks, leaky boobs, you know, sexy things, hahaha.
GTKY: What is the strangest dream you've had this pregnancy so far? I was leading a dog sled team and we were racing against wolves and polar bears. Then we started to get chased by buffalo.
Any appointments? Questions?: Last Friday the baby is measured between 33-34 weeks at 34 weeks so he’s doing well.
Rants/Raves?: I have an anterior placenta so I love finally being able to feel him move. I can see my stomach moving and it’s crazy.
How are you feeling?: Feeling great for the most part! Heels actually feel better on my feet then flats these days, but with the winter weather I make sure to wear flats on days where parking lots could be slick. I can’t wait to get my pre-pregnancy energy back, but hoping I still feel at least this good for the next 6ish weeks.
GTKY: What is the strangest dream you've had this pregnancy so far? So many strange and graphic dreams. I can’t remember many specifics right now except for the one where all of the diamonds fell out of my wedding and engagement band...I woke up angry lol!
