Re: Group 3 (Oct 16-22) Check-In Week of 3/11

  • Est Due Date / Weeks + Days: Oct 17/8w4d

    Baby is the size of a(n): Raspberry

    Upcoming Appointments: Had my first appointment last Thursday. Baby was measuring right on track at 8 wks with a 165 heartbeat.

    How are you feeling?: So exhausted and lacking any motivation. I even read an article this morning on how to make it through your first trimester at work.  Bottom line was step up your game....not the answer I wanted to hear. I want to quit so bad.

    Rants/Raves: Along the lines of work, my boss is really ticking me off. I took off Friday to get some personal stuff done, but before I left, gave her a full rundown of where a certain project stood (its become a mess thanks to the TX Secretary of State screwing up the paperwork). Later that evening (same day as the update) she emails me and asked for an update.  Then our CFO emailed me the next day and asked the same question, which I knew she contacted my boss first and guarantee my boss told her I was the one supposed to be working on it, but I was out/gone. Then today, I get in and she sends me an email asking if something else had been done, which she knows full-well was done because she received the confirmation email back in January and forwarded it to me telling me thank you and that she was removing it from the task list. Makes me want to punch her in the face. 

    Questions: Any tips for getting through this first trimester without losing my job from laziness lol?  I need energy and coffee gives me heartburn.

    GTKY: If you could make one rule that everyone had to follow, what rule would you make?  Mandatory classes in critical thinking.

  • @scuba_chic That is really frustrating with your boss. Second trimester is almost here. You got this!!!

    Est Due Date / Weeks + Days: Oct 16/8w5d

    Baby is the size of a(n): Raspberry 

    Upcoming Appointments: March 21 for another Ultrasound 

    How are you feeling?: Like poo. 

    Rants/Raves: Not much here, I want to stop working but DH is wanting me to continue until May. I only work twice a week as is but I just don’t want to.

    Questions: 

    GTKY: If you could make one rule that everyone had to follow, what rule would you make? Chewing with their mouth closed, because gross.

    Baby is the size of a(n): Pygmy Sea horse, or the phone icon on an iPhone. 

    Upcoming Appointments: 3/18

    How are you feeling?: Blah... I’m finally feeling mostly better from my stomach bug. My boobs are hurting again, I’m either starving or can’t even look at food, and raw meat still turns my stomach. 

    Rants/Raves: My DH has been really good about helping with bed time this week so that i can go to bed earlier. 

    Questions: None right now

    GTKY: If you could make one rule that everyone had to follow, what rule would you make? Clean up any mess that you make. For my kids, that would also include doing chores without whining.

    Upcoming Appointments: this Thursday and it can’t come soon enough

    Rants/Raves: I have Thursday and Friday off this week and I am so happy to have a short work week 

    Questions: 

    GTKY: If you could make one rule that everyone had to follow, what rule would you make? Cover your mouth when you cough/sneeze/yawn!!

  • Est Due Date / Weeks + Days: 10-18/8W2D

    Baby is the size of a(n): Gummy Bear

    Upcoming Appointments: 3/13

    How are you feeling?: Exhausted all the time.

    Rants/Raves: Bad drivers

    Questions: who is and isn't finding out the gender of their baby

    GTKY: If you could make one rule that everyone had to follow, what rule would you make? 
  • EDD/Weeks: 10/20  8W2D
    Baby is the size of a: Lego brick
    Upcoming appt: March 26th. This is a little different than last time. I only had appts once a month for first and 2nd trimester. This time I have this extra appointment to meet with the nurse practitioner. She'll do a lot of education and answer any questions (don't have any really since this is 2nd baby), do all the blood work, then sit down with the financial department and I'll know how much is due for the entire pregnancy + delivery.  I'm scared to find out! Deductibles are so much higher than they were even 3 years ago! It's ridiculous.
    How are you feeling?: So tired, but otherwise fine.
    Rants/Raves: none at the moment
    Questions: none
    GTKY: If you could make one rule that everyone had to follow, what rule would you make?: Hmmm, I'm not sure, this is a tough one.

    Oh yeah, that should TOTALLY be a check in question: Team blue/pink/green, especially now that some of us will find out the sec through blood tests! Hopefully we remember to add it next week. (BTW, we are team green--not finding out)

    Hello! This is my first post and first pregnancy, so happy to finally get to this stage, been a long road!

    Est Due Date / Weeks + Days: 10/17, 8w5d

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

    Upcoming Appointments: 4/2, first pre-natal (ivf/fet patient so have had 2 us so far)

    How are you feeling?:  big relief this week! Otherwise very tired. Eating more than usual, lots of saliva! 

    Rants/Raves: a little more annoyed with things than usual! Work has been hard with fatigue and being distracted waiting for each appointment. I also work in wine industry so it has been hard to be around wine constantly, the smell!!  

    Questions:  any other fets out there?  I am wondering how First OB may differ from non ivf...

    GTKY: If you could make one rule that everyone had to follow, what rule would you make?  Not sure... maybe just be open to others?

    What's getting me through (almost 3 months) is knowing the time I'll have off once I have the bubs (time off meaning just from work...obviously it will still be hard work). I then plan on looking for a new job! I feel your frustration. The last few weeks I've had so much rage I've never had before. No patience for bad drivers or people being incompetent when normally I'm very patient and understanding. Here's hoping the 2nd semester is better :) sorry about the shitty situation at work... the extra stress osmt needed when you feel so shit

    Also lurking...

    @wintersong ;I agree! I suggested a few weeks back that we add team blue/pink/green and also FTM/STM/TTM+ because I can never remember and I feel like it would help me get to know people.
