Rants/Raves?: day naps this weekend were literally heaven.
How are you feeling?: excited and anxious, I feel like it’s going so fast but at the same time not fast enough!

Any appointments? Questions?: today - going to ask my ob about chiro recommendations.
Rants/Raves?: So thankful that my back is feeling a little better this week! We are re-doing some of our backyard this week so I'm super excited to have more livable space. Plus it will be nice to have it done before it gets too hot. (I say "we" but we are having it done so I am not doing any of the labor. lol)
How are you feeling?: I'm kind of worried that I'm not more stressed out about this next one. maybe more like b/c we already have so much of the stuff from our son that that I'm missing something that I need or waiting too long to figure it out.
I can’t think of a GTKY so how about things your pregnant self is thankful for? - I'm so thankful for weekends! I really need a break by the end of the week.

Any appointments? Questions?: Nothing this week!
Rants/Raves?: Rant: I still have the tail end of H’s cold. And he was out of town for part of the weekend to go to a hockey game. He felt bad leaving me but really there was nothing he could do to make me less sick! So I told him to find some way to make it up to me lol I’m just grumpy because he was away part of this weekend for a guys trip and he’s away for almost a week next month for a golf trip, and with my surgery happening very suddenly we didn’t get a babymoon (for the record I hate that word, no idea why) so I’m annoyed that he’s getting 2 trips and we aren’t getting any time away by ourselves. He doesn’t go away like this a lot, it’s just been bad timing because I’ve been cooped up at home for weeks and we were hoping to take a week away together this winter before it stops being just the 2 of us!
Rave: Contradictory to the above, we’re actually in Florida right now 🙈 It was sort of a last minute decision, I was cleared to travel and MIL/FIL/SIL and her kids are down here for an extended March break so we came down for a few days. Not exactly a babymoon since it’s more of a family vacation, but it’s definitely better than nothing!
How are you feeling?: Reasonably good! Baby is happy and active, I’m way less uncomfortable from my surgery, and now that I have that band for sleeping I’m more comfortable at night too. If I could stop having to pee in the middle of the night that would be great, but I don’t see that happening...

1 - Large sleep shirts, sooo comfortable! I don’t care that I look schlumpy.
2 - Living close to an Ikea. This is a good thing and a bad thing 😬
3 - That I should only have 10 weeks back at work before I start my mat leave!!

Any appointments? Questions?: I have both my hematologist and OB appointments on Wednesday.
Rants/Raves?: Excited for spring weather! I’m totally ready to put away the boots and the winter coat and trade it in for some cute spring outfits. I’ve also getting over the sickness I had last week so there is that to rave about. Still got a hoarse throat but with time it should heal up. I did spend my time off binge watching Netflix shows like Yummy Mummies and Working Moms.
How are you feeling?: Feeling okay this week. Little one has been on my left side since the beginning and I can’t lay on my left side anymore. Left hip kinda started hurting and the lower back pains are real. Other than that he’s been quite active still.
I am thankful for my fiancé for being completely understanding and dealing with my pregnant self this whole time. I have been giving him lots of sass and attitude lately because of how terrible I’ve been feeling. He just tells me it’s okay and that he doesn’t mind “taking one for the team”.
I too love wearing larger tshirts to sleep. They really are comfy.

Any appointments? Questions?: 28w appointment is this Thursday afternoon
Rants/Raves?: I love feeling this little guy moving around and kicking! I can't believe how close 3rd trimester is.
How are you feeling?: Pretty good! My back hurts a lot at night, but I can usually arrange my pregnancy pillow to at least make it tolerable.
-my husband...he does so much for our family. He is currently in charge of all drop off and pick up duties for our toddler and he is such an amazing dad.
-our new house...I can't wait to close and move in! I'm feeling thankful that my husband agreed to the house I liked best and that the process is moving quickly. I'm getting so impatient to actually move.
-naptime! Our son has been so hit or miss with his naptimes lately that every time he actually falls asleep I'm thrilled!
Baby is the size of a(n): Kale
Any appointments? Questions?: No appointments until 28 weeks!!! 3rd trimester is around the corner!!
Rants/Raves?: I am just so excited. Everyday I just wake up excited to feel her moving & bond with her.
Also, thanks to everyone who motivated me to try a chiropractor! I am soooo happy with the results!
How are you feeling?: I feel great. I feel like i’m more tired than usual and my latest lab work came back that I was anemic so i’m attributing the fatigue to that.
My fiance, my family, my friends, my doggy, and i’m so thankful for my daughter for kicking me in my tummy everyday. Sometimes it hurts but i love it!
Baby is the size of a(n): Rutabega/cauliflower
Any appointments? Questions?: GD test on Thursday. Not super excited about it, but I feel like baby girl’s movements have slowed down a lot in the past few days, so I’m anxious to check in on her.
Rants/Raves?: Rant: I’m having round ligament pain while I go on my walks, making that difficult, and I already can’t run, so that’s a little frustrating. I’m going to try some kinesio tape tomorrow, I think.
Rave: Though baby girl hasn’t been as active the past few days, I still love every kick/roll/jab I feel!
How are you feeling?: Pretty good! Finally really loving my pregnancy belly!
I can’t think of a GTKY so how about things your pregnant self is thankful for? My husband. He has literally been a rockstar for this entire pregnancy, from easing my anxieties to picking up the extra slack around the house. We’re also planning on cloth diapering, and he is 100% on board with it. Just feeling extra grateful for him!
Baby is the size of a(n): not sure
Any appointments? Questions?: Next week have a 28 week ultrasound. They want to make sure my placenta moved up. Last time it was too low for comfort. I'm short, and think its because of that.
Rants/Raves?: We're finally in the new house, but still unpacking. Its going to be like this for weeks!
How are you feeling?: Feeling more kicks and rolls. I have an active one! At times I get panicked, then at times I'm ready for her to come.
I can’t think of a GTKY so how about things your pregnant self is thankful for? Thankful DD is a sweet, kind and awesome sleeper! I need another one of those! Its helpful having a sweet toddler when you're preggo.
Baby is the size of a(n): not sure, about 1.5lb based off last u/s
Any appointments? Questions?: Glucose tolerance test, ugh, have to get that scheduled. Other than that nothing until 28 weeks.
Rants/Raves?: Being sick and preg sucks.
How are you feeling?: Still sick but fever is down to 99.1 without needing tylenol (so not a real fever anymore), so hopefully better in a few days.
Blueberry rooibos tea.
This board to keep me from losing my mind while stuck indoors.
My meditation app.

Any appointments? Questions?: 2nd Glucose test next Thursday
Rants/Raves?: Just excited for some nice weather & a more chances to take walks.

Any appointments? Questions?: had my first appointment at my new OB today. It’s a clinic at the hospital and being a first timer there they were pretty rude - they have these kiosks you scan in and I didn’t know so went to reception and the chick berated me for not going to the kiosk. The OB I saw today seemed pretty lovely. She’s decided to keep me high risk but only so she can monitor liver & iron levels. She’s not changed my appointment frequency (next one is in 3 weeks) but has asked for two more ultrasounds, one at 30 weeks and another at 34. Not the worst thing in the world!
Rants/Raves?: rave: we are FINALLY at our end destination and it is sooo glorious being able to relax somewhat. We’re collecting our furniture tomorrow so that will be the icing on the cake having my mattress back. Rant: this is the nursery right now. My partner goes back to work for 4 weeks on Sunday, we’re collecting our furniture tomorrow which is a 7 hour round trip and we have our birthing classes on Saturday & Sunday so won’t get to do anything with it before he leaves. It’s honestly stressing me out so much! 😩 the room we’re in is pretty much the same and I have no idea where my parents have accumulated all this furniture from! When I left my room only had a bed and a chest of drawers in it, now it has several shelving units, two chest of drawers & the cupboard is full of dresses and Christmas decorations! So we haven’t been able to settle into our room either and most likely won’t be able to before my partner leaves for work cause I can’t do it on my own 😞
How are you feeling?: bit tired and sick from the drive and being in aircon for 7 days straight, but other than that I’m feeling fabulous
I can’t think of a GTKY so how about things your pregnant self is thankful for? Family support and my darling fiancé. I’ve been a bit of a grumpy arsehole and he’s taken it all on the chin and not let much turn into an argument, just accepts my snappiness and moves on haha.
Baby is the size of a(n): I cannot remember after reading everyone’s check in’s
Any appointments? Questions?: had an OB Monday, US Tuesday and my second GD test yesterday
Rants/Raves?: Babies have gained over a pound since last month. Also excited to have a final end date if they don’t come early
How are you feeling?: large but overall not terrible
Yes to Amazon Prime as so many of you have said.
Also warm pools bc floating and feeling weightless is amazing right now.
I’m also in the camp of can’t wait for warm weather. So many are sick so I hope you feel better and not putting on boots and coats would be nice as my coats don’t zip up anymore.
@ami500 I am so with you! Bring on the spring weather! I love being able to go outside and play with my dog or just soak up some sun! Also congrats on passing your glucose test!!
@jacksonbears I have a very active baby as well. She is constantly moving and it’s a bit unsettling to have her moving so much. Especially when I am doing things like driving or trying to teach.
Baby is the size of a(n): an acorn squash

Rants/Raves?: I am loving the warm weather! Spring is my favorite season and I love when everything turns from brown to green; it just makes me feel a little happier!
