    EDD/W+D:  4/3 6w3d (but it might change)

    Team finding out/pink/blue/green: Definitely finding out. 

    Baby is the size of a(n): ladybug

    Upcoming appts: Not until 8/22. The wait is killing me. 

    How are you feeling?: Kind of terrible, which I’m taking as a good sign. No vomiting yet, but a good bit of nausea, sore boobs, exhaustion, heart burn, etc. 

    Rants/Raves: Rave: Finally saw the new Lion King yesterday and it was much better than I thought it would be. Mostly I was thinking how much DS would love it. We went to the zoo Saturday and he was obsessed with all the animals. 

    Rant: Got up at 2 this morning to pee and didn’t get back to sleep until 5. This is super difficult to sustain without caffeine.

    Questions: Nope. 

    GTKY: What is the one thing you'll miss while pregnant? Soda. Also, we are going to Disney in November (my first trip there ever) and I won’t be able to ride most of the rides. Not too upset about it, though. I’d rather have a baby than ride Space Mountain. I just knew this was going to happen when my family insisted on booking the trip. 

    Edit: Typo.

  • I wanted to watch the new Lion King and someone told me they were very disappointed, so I never went. I think i'm going to try and catch it before its gone from the cinemas.
    I got up to pee at 5 and couldnt go back to sleep either. It does suck!

    @sanpelligrino I hadn’t been in a hurry to see it, because I’d heard it wasn’t very good, but I actually liked it. Not gonna day it’s better than the original, but they did somethings really well. The voice cast was great, too.

  • EDD/W+D:  4/6/20 6weeks today!

    Team finding out/pink/blue/green:  TEAM GREEN!

    Baby is the size of a(n): pea :)

    Upcoming appts: had my intake appt today, ultrasound and followup OB on 8/23, can't wait!

    How are you feeling?: some pretty intense nausea this week.  Trying to parent three littles while feeling this way has been hard.  Hoping to get some relief soon.

    Rants/Raves: My belly is definitely larger already! Having a little issue with my weight this pregnancy, I wanted to lose about 10 lbs before we got pregnant, and that didn't happen.

    Questions: 

    GTKY: What is the one thing you'll miss while pregnant? Wine and definitely sushi!

  • @masters1010 Oh man, nausea with 3 kids sounds tough. I get the larger belly. This is my second and I look like I did at 12 weeks with my first.

  • EDD/W+D: 6+3, EDD 4/2/2020

    Team finding out/pink/blue/green: Finding out!  But possibly not sharing.

    Baby is the size of a(n): sweet pea!

    Upcoming appts: First scan and meeting with the NP on 8/21

    How are you feeling?: Been up and down - had a really bad day with nausea and headache on Saturday, felt just sort of generally out of it yesterday, and today I feel fine.  I have a huge work day tomorrow in preparation for going back to school in a couple of weeks, so I anticipate feeling like crap within the next 18 hours.  

    Rants/Raves: My skin is DISGUSTING.  I remember it being kind of gross with my first, but never so oily.  I feel like I had JUST found the secret to success with my old lady skin - I've been using a vitamin c serum, and it's worked wonders!  But suddenly I have the skin of a teenager again, plus wrinkles.  YAY.

    Questions: I always hated BTDT moms for being such know-it-alls the first time around, but man, you'd think I'd done this a hundred times for how much it feels like old hat this time around.

    GTKY: What is the one thing you'll miss while pregnant? Beer.  I love beer.  My husband and I are huge beer nerds.

  • EDD/W+D: 4/3/20 6+3

    Team finding out/pink/blue/green: Team finding out. Planning on doing a gender reveal later on down the road, which I'm really looking forward to.

    Baby is the size of a(n): sweet pea

    Upcoming appts: Sept 6th ultrasound and appt with NP. It seems so late, my OB office schedules at 8-10 weeks. And to get it on a day my husband is off, I'll be almost 10 weeks. Bummer.

    How are you feeling?: Nausea has definitely kicked in the last few days. Also, super tired. Had some light tan spotting and a little cramping earlier today which freaked me out. So far, it has stopped. It's still making me anxious though.

    Rants/Raves: DD (2.5) wants to wake up 2-3 times a night again and it's KILLING me. Definitely doesn't help with already being exhausted. I guess she's getting me ready for the future months.

    GTKY: What is the one thing you'll miss while pregnant? Definitely beer/cider. Also, a medium rare steak would be nice.

    Questions: 

    GTKY: What is the one thing you'll miss while pregnant? I'll miss my wine on the days my kids our driving me insane and I just need a moment of relax and a nice drink lol. I myself still eat sushi and deli meat after speaking with my doctor the first pregnancy he explained it's safe and jus avoid high mercury fish and deli counters so I buy packaged meat instead.
