Re: Group 1 (May 1-8) Check-In: w/o 9/2

  • EDD: 5/3

    Pink/blue/green: Not sure yet but definitely finding out! 

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

    Upcoming appointments: I have appointment this Friday to check hcg levels and an ultrasound. *TW I was admitted to the hospital over the weekend due to pain in my left ovary. They said I have a corpus luteum cyst but didn’t completely rule out ectopic as they couldn’t find an embryo, however, said it may be too early to detect so I’m going in Friday for a follow up to make sure everything is okay. Hope to see baby where he/she needs to be! 

    How are you feeling? Feeling pretty good just some cramping here and there 

    Raves/Rants: 

    Questions: 

    GTKY: What state do you live in? Texas currently but we’re supposed to move sometime in December to Georgia (DH is in the Air Force). Or possibly Nebraska, so who knows but most likely Georgia!

    EDD: 5/7/2020 (hoping 5/4 so we can have a May the Fourth baby)

    Pink/blue/green: Dunno yet, but will for sure be finding out when we can.

    Baby is the size of a(n): Sesame seed. Will be the size of an apple seed come tomorrow, though.

    Upcoming appointments: Beta this afternoon, and possibly again on Friday morning. Will also run my blood for other prenatal screening stuff since I'll be 35 soon.

    How are you feeling? Great! Besides some nausea that comes and goes, I'm feeling awesome. I was able to get a 2 mile run plus some yoga stretching afterward this morning. I don't feel as exhausted as I thought I'd be post-workout. Trader Joe's ginger chews have helped with the nausea.

    Raves/Rants: September has always been an awesome month for me. It's my birthday month! And I found out yesterday that I will for-sure be advancing to E7 next year. 

    Questions: Nope, not yet.

    GTKY: What state do you live in? Virginia! Coastal area on the peninsula, kinda between Colonial Williamsburg and Virginia Beach.

    @sbishop426 Hey due date buddy!  I really hope everything checks out okay on Friday!  Man, Nebraska and Georgia are very different places!  When will you find out?

    EDD: 5/3

    Pink/blue/green:  Not sure whether or not we're finding out this time. We didn't for DS, but might this time.

    Baby is the size of a(n): apple seed

    Upcoming appointments:  3rd beta draw next Monday, then first u/s mid-late next week!  Nervous and excited!

    How are you feeling?  So far, so good!  My boobs are sore, but otherwise good symptom-wise.  I did get diagnosed with shingles last week, so that has been awful, but I'm told it shouldn't be a big risk to the pregnancy.  I'm still anxious about it, though.

    Raves/Rants:  I cannot wait for this rash to stop hurting so much.  It's making sleeping difficult.  I finish up my week of antivirals tomorrow, and I'm not entirely sure they really did anything.  

    Questions: Not really!  

    GTKY: What state do you live in?  NH

    ETA I forgot to put my state.  :lol:

    @rebecca517-2 lurking from group 2- our DS’s have the same bday!  I also have the same concerns lol. I was due 5/2 with my DS and had him 5/10. My EDD now is 5/14. I hate to be overdue because it’s so miserable but I also want bdays to be farther apart, so conflicting. 

    ETA just to add to it- 5/10 this year is also Mothers Day  :p

  • @rocky0403 due date twins!! I’m also nervous about taking care of a toddler and a newborn. DD is so active- I’m worried about being able to keep up with her. 
    rocky0403
  • @thinkpositive2017 if you’re going to move the 2 year old, highly suggest doing it sooner rather than later. If you wait until he knows about the baby, it could trigger a bunch of jealousy/regressions/just unpleasant behavior. It may also be good to give him time to adjust to sleeping alone (it took DD almost 4 years to stay in her own bed!!!) before you also ask him to adjust to a new baby too.

  • @pascal86 Yeah... it's new for me too. In my last BMB it was based on the day of the week that you changed over. So you ended up being with people that were 0-4 weeks different! You must have gotten a really early positive!

  • @m6agua yup. I LOVED my group the first time around, but last time I joined around 6-7 weeks pregnant, and being due at the end of the month, I felt sooo lost with all the people and couldn't really connect, so thought I'd get in early this time even though it seems a little risky.  :D

    Pink/blue/green: What does green mean?  

    Baby is the size of a(n):  an orange seed

    Upcoming appointments: Lab work next week

    How are you feeling? Not too bad.   Coffee makes me throw up and I've been peeing like crazy since about 7-8 DPO.    TMI issues-  My breasts are starting to look like a road map and I'm kind of constipated.   

    Raves/Rants:  Thank goodness for water.  It helps me feel so much better.  

    Questions: Why does my period app say I'm 6 weeks pregnant and my pregnancy app say I'm 5 weeks pregnant?  Which is accurate?   Both go by the same LMP info.   

    GTKY: What state do you live in? NY

    @thinkpositive2017 - yes we live in a 1 bedroom apartment.  We actually just renewed our lease for 2 more years.  This was 1 month before we conceived.  Luckily it's nicely  sized and we should be fine.  We just have to get creative with space.

  • EDD: May 4th

    Team green! I have wanted to do this the other two times and I just couldn’t hold out, but this time I’m going to do it much to the dismay of my family.

    Baby is the size of an apple seed.

    Upcoming appts: on my to do list, we moved so I have to find a new Dr this time around. 

    How you feeling: nothing thank God. I have had HG with both previous pregnancies so I am happy to be fluffy as long as possible.

     Pink/blue/green: we have two boys and a girl already so we wanna go green this time! Hopefully I can last that long 😂
     Baby is the size of a(n): apple/orange seed Upcoming appointments: first one will be sept 19, I’ll be 7.5 weeks.
    How are you feeling? pretty good. Tired all the time (but that’s nothing new), my sense of smell is super heightened so I smell everything ha! No nausea yet 🤞🏻🤞🏻
    Raves/Rants: None at the moment besides my kids took forever to settle down and fall asleep tonight 😒

    Pink/blue/green: I have two boys already, so crossing my fingers for pink. 😬

    Baby is the size of a(n): Apple Seed.

    Upcoming appointments: Sept 27

    How are you feeling? My boobs are huge and swollen, I’ve had a good bit of cramping and afternoon naps are a most. 

    Raves/Rants: DH decided to tell the kids already and now I’m freaking out that they’ll tell everyone and I wanted to wait for a while. 

    Questions: 

    GTKY: What state do you live in? GA. 
    shamrocandrolllaurasauruss
  • @lizm1234 Green means you won't find out the sex of the baby ahead of time.  You don't know until they are born.  Also, the first day of your LMP is day 1 of your cycle, so you would be 5 weeks pregnant 5 weeks from that day.  Not sure why different apps are giving you different dates.

    Pink/Blue/Green: I want to go green this time since we already have one of each but DH wants to find out so I guess we'll see who wins.

    Upcoming Appointments: I just had a blood test/ nurse visit yesterday, won't got to see the doctor until Oct 24 (12wks) 

    How are you feeling?: So far I'm feeling nothing which makes me very anxious.

    Raves/Rants: I wish I could run away from work, why are people so annoying?

  • shamrocandroll thank you for explaining the green thing. Now that I know what it means, I'm not sure what DH and I will decide.  

    It's strange, but I guess my period tracker says week 6 because this begins the 6th week.  But technically,I'm 5 weeks and 4 days pregnant.  My LMP was July 29th.  The things we learn along the way :smile:

    Baby is the size of a(n): Appleseed  

    Upcoming appointments: 9/30 first US

    How are you feeling? Insanely tired. Some nausea and occasional vomiting but it was 24/7 with DS so this is more than fine with me!!!!

    Raves/Rants: my body does not do “hide pregnancy until you’re ready to announce” and the blump is ridiculous right now. Annoying, I feel like I need to call my best friend and get our joint maternity clothes stash back (we are trading maternity and non maternity back and forth during our baby years)
