  • Est Due Date / Weeks + Days: Aug. 11/ 31+1

    Baby is the size of a(n): Asparagus/Coconut

    Team Pink/Blue/Green?: Blue

    Upcoming Appointments: Next check-up is later this week

    How are you feeling?: Starting to get swollen to the point that my wedding ring no longer fits!  :( I'm wearing it on a necklace, but its still distracting not actually having it on my finger.

    Rants/Raves: Rave- had my yearly review last week and it was extremely positive! They gave me my new goals, but with the understanding that some measures will be pro-rated based on the time that I'm out. 
    Rant- A relative told me that they will be buying our glider and giving it to us at the shower. I'm extremely grateful for their generosity, but this means we'll have to load it in our vehicle, transport it across the state, and likely need to ask for help in unloading it. 

    Questions: Not that I can think of... 

    GTKY- (Borrowed from Group 4) If you could eat one food/meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?: Probably tacos, as long as it's not confined to one specific variety!

    @MamaK225 ;Ratatouille sounds like a great way to get in your vegetable servings. I think I ate maybe 2 servings of vegetables all weekend. :neutral:

  • Est Due Date / Weeks + Days: August 8th, 32 weeks tomorrow

    Baby is the size of a(n): Asparagus evidently? Must be a big asparagus...

    Team Pink/Blue/Green?:  Team Blue

    Upcoming Appointments: 32 week appointment next Thursday 

    How are you feeling?: Grumpy, painful and exhausted 😩 

    Rants/Raves:  Rant: My diastasis has gotten so bad that I can hardly stand to move and my back is screaming for relief. My OBGYN felt the need to tell me that she can’t feel and muscle behind my bellybutton anymore, basically it’s just skin and uterus. She didn’t seem at all worried though.  😩 And that info makes me feel really confident! My daughter  just started dance and gymnastics classes for the summer and my husband seems to expect me to do the brunt of the driving despite the fact that i can barely manage to pull myself into the Jeep at this point. Also I still need to finish setting up the nursery but husbeast refuses to move the heavy furniture when i ask. And i woke up today with a fever blister to top it all off. 

    Rave: My mom came to stay a week with us and help me out with my three year old. It has been amazing to have the extra help, as it seems my
    toddler is trying to regress, and my friend just hooked me up with so much baby boy stuff that her little boy outgrew that i basically dont need to buy anything anymore, which is awesome!

    Questions: 

    GTKY- (Borrowed from Group 4) If you could eat one food/meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?: Pasta, any kind of pasta!

    Baby is the size of a(n): foam finger

    Team Pink/Blue/Green?: Blue

    Upcoming Appointments: OB appointment tomorrow

    How are you feeling?: Large.  Lol.

    Rants/Raves: DD passed her hearing test today, which means we can finally get referred to speech therapy.  It took us four months to get that appointment.  I feel like we just wasted so much time.  I could have told you her hearing was fine.

    GTKY- (Borrowed from Group 4) If you could eat one food/meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?:  Ramen, pho, or any form of Asian soup noodle, really.

    Est Due Date / Weeks + Days: 8/12, 31 weeks today

    Baby is the size of a(n): asparagus

    Team Pink/Blue/Green?: Pink!

    Upcoming Appointments:  next Thursday, regular check in with midwife, ultrasound and a group class about L&D

    How are you feeling?: nervous. Ultrasound will officially determine if I will be allowed to give birth in the birth center or if I have to transfer to the hospital setting. We need one tiny measurement to be increased by 5% and it just occurred to me that that measurement could come back great and another one could change and I’m ready to pull my hair out. Having to transfer invites a whole lot of other issues due to having no medical insurance. 

    Rants/Raves: I miss my ankle bones. 

    Questions: 

    GTKY- (Borrowed from Group 4) If you could eat one food/meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?: I love to eat and I feel like it’s just rude to make me decide! Jk...I go through phases but I’d be really bummed if I could never have a good steak again.
