How are you feeling?:
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure?
Baby is the size of a(n): not sure - i clearly haven't been keeping up
Any appointments? Questions?: Had an ultrasound last friday. Doctor wanted to make sure my placenta moved up, and it did. She did a 3D ultrasound as well. Our little girl looks like DD! Everything looked great with baby!
Rants/Raves?: To save money on the house renovations, I'm redoing the fireplace myself. I plan on repainting it. I'm 2/3rds the way done. It's a long project, I'm excited to see how it turns out!
How are you feeling?: Feeling a lot more kicks! I'm slowly starting to feel swollen, I think this time last pregnancy I stopped wearing my wedding ring.
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? Trashy TV! I love the real housewives, vanderpump rules, 90 day fiance. Heheh. I love watching the shows, then going on line and reading the blogs.
Baby is the size of a(n): Lettuce (foot is apparently as long as a wine cork?)
Any appointments? Questions?: Next appt is on the 11th. So crazy that I'm down to the every 2 weeks appts already!
Rants/Raves?: Rave - passed my 2nd 1-hour glucose test last Thursday!
Rant - the realtor has listed our house (went up yesterday) & they already have someone coming for a walk-through Wednesday morning. I'm so stressed out about our house looking a mess (toys, clothes, boxes everywhere) & now I get to stress about strangers walking through my house & looking at my stuff. Ugh.
How are you feeling?: Sore. I've been taking Tylenol before bed & it has helped me to sleep a little better, but my hips are so stiff when I get up in the mornings.
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? Say Yes to the Dress! Also, several HGTV shows, but I've been more into binging NCIS lately. And now Season 3 of Santa Clarita Diet is on Netflix, so I'll likely be binging that later this week!
Baby is the size of a(n): acorn squash
Any appointments? Questions?: 30 week appt. this Wednesday
Rants/Raves?: We finally set our closing and moving date! What a relief! I've been so anxious to get this process moving.
How are you feeling?: Pretty good, I sleep better some nights than others but overall not too bad!
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? The Bachelor & Bachelorette
Baby is the size of a(n): I'm going to go off the 31 weeks cause that's tomorrow - a lion cub 😍
Any appointments? Questions?: Next appointment on the 11th as well. Also booked in my hospital tour for the 8th of May week is smack on 36 weeks, so hopefully I last that long!
Rants/Raves?: Rave: 16 days till my fiance is homeeeeeeee and 17 days until I go on mat leave!!!! 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻 Going to Sydney this weekend to catch up with some friends & have a look at my rental property. Forgot to get my doctor to sign the airlines approval to flight form so hopefully if I wear loose clothing I won't look pregnant (I don't have an overly round bump so I do just look a bit fat unless I cup my belly), and if somebody asks I'm just going to say "ummm no, that's a bit rude!" hahaha. Rant: none!
How are you feeling?: I've not had any pregnancy issues since moving back so I think everything I was feeling was just brought on my stress. I'm feeling quite good apart from typical 3rd tri issues; back pain, swelling, general uncomfortableness & lack of sleep, now can't sit at the dinner table & eat over my plate. Feel like I'm starting to get a cold so just trying to rest as much as possible. STARTING TO GET SO EXCITED! 6 weeks left until I'm at term!
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? Napping, eating chocolate or ice-cream, binge watching Netflix
Baby is the size of a(n): eggplant or her toe is the size of a chocolate chip lol
Any appointments? Questions?: glucose on the 15th which I feel like is really late to be having my 1st.
Rants/Raves?: Raves: I love feeling her move around more and more. Rants: I'm starting to get stressed and have dreams about my maternity leave.
How are you feeling?: besides not sleeping well and still having to take nausea meds every day, I feel pretty good.
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? Blue Bell ice cream! I can't let myself eat it often but it's the best! I do love a good nap on the weekends while my 2yo sleeps!
Baby is the size of a(n): lettuce or as tall as a three hole punch
Any appointments? Questions?: had my normal check up with the OB on Monday and all is looking well next checkup in another month. Then 34 week scan. Didn’t think I’d get any lore scans so pretty happy about that.
Rants/Raves?: rant is that it’s hard to maintain fatigue levels. I feel like I’m fine and then suddenly I sit down for a minute and feel like I want to snooze 😴 the other night after work hubby woke me to tell me dinner was ready and I must have been out for 90 minutes 😳😂 I should do that more often to get my dinner cooked haha!
Rave: Planning a baby shower and then a baby moon shortly that I’m super excited about. Been working fulltime for what feels like forever so cannot wait for a few days off, I’ve ordered everything on layby so will pick it all up after our few days away and get organised so I can go back to work for the past few weeks and feel organised if anything happened earlier than expected.
How are you feeling?: pretty good overall, just on countdown mode really. Feels like time is going by much quicker now and I’m getting bigger by the day!
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? I’ve become addicted to Ben and Jerry’s icecream lately. I normally don’t even like icecream but gimme, gimme, gimme. Haha 🤣 @griffin5431 I’m hearing ya about icecream!
@wiseh I would love to join a Facebook group. Count me in! And glad you are feeling better now you are back home.
@jacksonbears good that the placenta has moved up. I’ve just been reading about that recently. They will check that for me at my next scan.
@tickledpink123 good luck with the move! You are a brave woman!
@lovemylittlelucy I can’t wait for my full day birthing class in May. Also intrigued to see how hubby will handle it because he won’t even watch or look at anything to do with birth and isn’t good with blood or anything medical. My mum has already asked if she can be my ‘backup person’ when he faints in the delivery room 🤣
Baby is the size of a(n): a size 12 shoe? (weird one)
Any appointments? Questions?: Yesterday, 4/12 and 4/22
Rants/Raves?: third trimester is so freakin close
How are you feeling?: Not bad, but a little off. OB told me yesterday that my first appt next month we will be offically scheduling my c section date for approx 39 weeks and I've been feeling kind of sad ever since. I'm so excited to meet her but the fact that she is going to be out of my body soon and I can't "protect her" as much is throwing me off and I'm a little nervous too of how I am going to juggle toddler and newborn motherhood in the best way for both girls.
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? also a trashy TV person
Baby is the size of a(n): length of a football
Any appointments? Questions?: April 8
Rants/Raves?: nursery is just about done and my sisters are throwing me a baby sprinkle at my house this weekend. So excited for everyone to be here (one sister lives in CA and the other 4 hours away in MI)
How are you feeling?: out of breath a lot and super tired if I forget to rest or sit down in the afternoon. Otherwise no major complaints
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? I like drama reality tv. Right now it’s a Netflix series about selling homes in Hollywood Hills.
Tagging is being super strange for me, but I’m down for fbook.
Also, congrats on the positive glucose results and scans! @tickledpink123@bubbaclose
@BlondePeanut the end is so bittersweet. This dude has been soooo visibly active. Neither of them the girls were like that. I’m going to miss this as much as I want it done
Baby is the size of a(n): Eggplant or as long as a load of wonder bread (I think she’s probably longer if she has her dad’s legs)
Any appointments? Questions?: I just had my forst third trimester appointment yesterday, and now I go back every 2 weeks. I’m just so excited! This is the homestretch!
Rants/Raves?: RANT: All we’ve done so far is work on invitations but I’m already ready for the baby shower to start and finish, i’m over it. At this point i’d rather have a few friends/family over and we all just watch tv in our PJs eating cupcakes and then i’ll open all our gifts.
RAVE: My hubby is so awesome. He’s so supportive and I don’t even have to ask for anything.
How are you feeling?: Walking gets me winded but overall I feel great. I’m just anxious to see my baby girl!
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? Snacks! My goal is to gain no more than 3-8 pounds in these 11 weeks until baby girl is born but ugh! I just really want to take advantage of being pregnant and just eat everything.
Baby is the size of a(n): Eggplant. Her palm is the size of a postage stamp. 📬
Any appointments? Questions?: I have my next appointment tomorrow, and because I failed my 3-hour glucose test, I have SO many questions. I’m not sure if this means I’ll get extra appointments now, and I don’t know what it means for my delivery. I’m also wondering if it’s why baby girl has been measuring so big (or if that’s just a coincidence because DH is bigger and was the smallest baby of his family at 8 pounds 😳). I have an appointment with a Gestational Diabetes nurse next week to learn how to test my glucose 4x a day.
Rants/Raves?: Even though I haven’t met with the GD nurse yet, I’ve already changed my diet and started reducing the carbs I eat—it’s not fun, especially for a girl who likes bagels and pasta!—but I don’t think I’ve put on any weight (and might have even lost some weight) in the last few days since I started the diet. I’m also feeling baby girl move a lot, which is fun.
How are you feeling?: Still overwhelmed and anxious about the GD diagnosis, both for what it means for baby girl (now and in the future), and what it means for me in the future. And still sort of in denial that I have this, because I’m generally a healthy eater and I exercise pretty regularly. But, starting to accept it, and I’m not crying about it every day at least!
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? Does rewatching Grey’s Anatomy, from the beginning, for like the 4th time count?
Baby is the size of a(n): Eggplant
Any appointments? Questions?: No appointments until the end of this month. No questions.
Rants/Raves?: Third trimester! Woohoo! Also, finally feeling better after my fall and the flu. AND my bestie went into labor today. Can’t wait to meet her little one. AND we accepted an offer for full asking on our house today! Anyway, keeping it positive with just raves this week.
How are you feeling?: Feeling good.
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? Gummies! I love them all.
Baby is the size of a(n): Acorn squash or the thumb is the size of a honey bee.
Any appointments? Questions?: Had my hematologists appointment yesterday and I got my first iron IV scheduled for next week. They told me it was going to take 2 hours. 😧 Not looking forward to that, but since they are in the same building as my OB she wanted me to come in directly afterwards for a NIPT. Kinda makes me worry about the whole thing but worrying would make it worse so I’m trying to stay as positive as possible.
Rants/Raves?: Fiancé put me on his phone plan so I got a new phone! My previous phone had a battery that died really quickly so it’s nice to have a phone that can last pretty much all day without having to have it plugged in every 2-3 hours.
Also got my baby shower invites all sent out. My uncle is hosting it but since he didn’t know who I wanted to invite, he gave that job to me. I’m doing a coed baby shower because I wanted to get the fiancé involved as well as the family and friends to meet my future step son. It would be a great way to get them all together.
How are you feeling?: Feeling the usual fatigue I’ve got going now but hopefully after the first iron IV I will feel much better. Other than that usual aches here and there. Still got that left hip pain that won’t go away. I was going to address that to my OB next week when I see her for the NIPT.
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? Trashy tv is just the best. Also donuts and anything sweet for me. I rarely had sweets before this pregnancy, but my body has been craving a whole lot of it now. I’m limiting it to once a day if at all.
@wiseh I’m down for the fb group. Probably an easier platform that this forum here. I know some of us have had issues on this site/app.
@magpie87 That sucks that they aren’t giving you enough time before showings. It’s like they want to get rid of you ASAP and get the new tenants in.
@tickledpink123 Good luck with the move! At least it’s ASAP!
@griffin5413 Throughout this whole pregnancy I haven’t had any major issues with nausea but it started up yesterday for me. I could barely eat because i felt like I was just going to throw it all up. I’m like really? In the 3rd trimester it wants to act up? 😩
@ajbook Yay for nursery almost done! I’m don’t feel anywhere close yet to finishing. I’m also looking forward to seeing family as well during my baby shower. I haven’t seen a lot of them in a while because of how busy everyone is with work and school. Our family didn’t have a thanksgiving or Christmas party last year so it’s been over a year since I’ve seen everyone.
@ajel46 A pj party sounds amazing. Just do it!
Baby is the size of a(n): eggplant
Any appointments? Questions?: 28 week checkup, nothing else exciting.
Rants/Raves?: exercising has been relatively successful, despite recent illnesses, and most days I feel good and despite a huge belly the rest of me hasn't changed size too much! I guess it's easier to figure out the second time. Talk to me in 3 months and see if I'm still doing it, lol
How are you feeling?: heartburn. I feel heartburn.... makes me want to eat more for temporary relief, but makes me regret eating at all.... any suggestions welcome!
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? Decaf lattes from starbucks at work. I feel so guilty. But they just make my day.
Baby is the size of a(n): eggplant
Any appointments? Questions?: Just got my results back for my sugar test, and I am in the clear!
Rants/Raves?: I love feeling the baby move, it's the coolest feeling ever!
How are you feeling?: Still feeling the 2nd trimester high, hoping it lasts.
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? Sweets, although baby girl is making me crave savory foods.
Baby is the size of a(n): According to an app- a puppy. I like this because it's so variable. (bub is measuring bigger than average)
Any appointments? Questions?: Weekly visits with MFM and Physician, fortnightly growth scans,
Rants/Raves?: Not really. Just getting super flipping excited now. And whoop whoop no GD!
How are you feeling?: Sore, tired and a little grumpy. I've been given a new medication for the reflux and omg I wish I'd asked sooner. The stuff is a miracle worker. No more breathing in fire and coughing for 3-4 minutes ending up with teary eyes and embarrassment at work!
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? Nutella for breakfast. Every morning. And Iced Chocolates/Milkshakes.
@wiseh + one for the FB group Definitely a better platform and I'm much more likely to be more active considering I have to actually use a laptop to access TB.
Baby is the size of a(n): Eggplant 😆
Any appointments? Questions?: My next appointment and GD glucose test is this coming Wednesday.
Rants/Raves?: We aren't moving, but we are remodeling! Our kitchen, dining room and living room have been inaccessible and non existent for 3+ weeks. Still have a few to go. We took down a wall and had the kitchen all stripped to the studs. Currently having new hardwood floors installed throughout. Can't wait for it to be over so we can settle back in and I can start really nesting! Right now the nursery is our makeshift kitchen and my home office.
How are you feeling?: Pretty good overall! Big and round, heartburn and insomnia .... But not too bad!
GTKY: What's your guilty pleasure? Donuts! And Love and Hip Hop reality show 😝
