    Upcoming appts: 7 week US August 27, 1st prenatal August 30

    How are you feeling?: overall pretty good, but it comes in waves. One minute I’m starving, the next minute I’m gagging. I’m exhausted all the time, taking 1 1/2-2 hour naps daily... ugh. But this is good need to me, so I’m trying not to complain!

    Rants/Raves: headed to see the Backstreet Boys tonight... that will be fun! My first time since I was a kid going to a concert and not drinking... so that’s fun. Lol. But hey, baby’s first concert! 

    Questions: has anyone else thought about journaling through your pregnancy? I kind of want to... 

    GTKY: What are your hobbies/interests? Reading, taking bubble baths, and listening to music! Currently into binge watching Netflix and taking naps. 🤣😂

    EDD/W+D:  4/11..I think 5w2d?

    Team finding out/pink/blue/green:  Id like to be surprised but I think DH wants to find out. 

    Baby is the size of a(n): black peppercorn

    Upcoming appts: first prenatal visit Thursday. 

    How are you feeling?:  Nervous.  *TW* Ive had 3 early MC in the last year...one was just 4th of July weekend, so I honestly cant believe I am pregnant. I was about to throw in the towel. Gave away a bunch of baby stuff , cancelled the appt I made with a fertility dr and was ready to move on. So now I am a ball of confusion and emotions! 

    As far as symptoms go, my boobs are sore and I am soooo tired , but otherwise ok!

    Rants/Raves: Nothing at the moment that I can think of? 

    GTKY: What are your hobbies/interests?  I love being with family at the beach! Thats my favorite thing about summer. Also love working out, cooking, reading and going out with friends. 

  • @littleredm I’m so excited! I’m really an NSYNC fan, but I love 90’s boy bands in general! I keep saying “baby’s first concert” today :) I really feel connected to this pregnancy... weird. Lol. 
  • EDD/W+D:  4/12  5w1d

    Team finding out/pink/blue/green: definitely want to find out

    Baby is the size of a(n): an appleseed. Bump says my baby is as tall as the M on an M&M. That cracked me up.

    Upcoming appts: Aug 30 for my 7 week appointment, but i badly want to move it up to see how things are.

    How are you feeling?: not feeling much symptoms wise. I think my sleep cycles are a little messed up and i'm more tired during the day because of that. I get very full when i eat normal amounts of food, so i think i'm bloated. No MS yet. Overall, i feel pretty normal, no major complaints.

    Rants/Raves: I'm mostly excited as this is my first pregnancy, but sometimes worry about the stats around early pregnancy loss. I also personally know several ladies who have miscarried and know how common it is, so have the worry at the back of my mind. I think it is because i had to go through fertility treatments to get here, and thought of re-doing the treatments worries me.

    Questions: Have you ladies been sexually active and do you worry? Any thoughts or advice? I know it should be fine, but i do worry at times.

    GTKY: What are your hobbies/interests? I'm currently binge watching The Crown and Madame Secretary on Netflix, love political dramas. I'm looking forward to watching Once upon a time in hollywood cos i'm a big Brad Pitt fan. I enjoy going on long walks. I'm waiting for my copy of expecting better.

  • @sanpelligrino we have been sexually active this time. Last pregnancy, I had pretty much no desire. I knpw it's generally safe unless your OB tells you otherwise.

  • @sanpelligrino I have not yet this time. I’m just too tired lately. It is generally safe unless there’s a concern. It can cause a little bleeding by irritating the cervix. That freaked me out in my last pregnancy.

  • @Kathryn0903 ; @mercury94 - thanks, we have been active, but i'm trying to be super careful. I think in general i'm nervous about anything "going in" except for my fingers (thanks Progesterone suppositories lol ) . I know i'm super excited for my 1st ultrasound but also nervous thinking about that ultrasound wand going in. I know i had some pain during my ultrasound monitoring in a couple of my iui cycles because my right ovary wasnt cooperating and hiding, causing them to really push on my pubic bone to visualize things. *Sigh*

  • @sanpelligrino I hear you on the ultrasound wand! During my IVF monitoring they did the same thing as my left ovary likes to hang out directly behind my uterus always.   I have to stay away from Gilmore Girls right now cause I always want to be drinking a large cup of coffee watching that show!!!
  • @mandarenee898 so true!!! coffee and all the other junk food they keep eating :sweat_smile:
