  • @rnstudentbsn 8-13 weeks for a first appointment is pretty normal. My OB's office starts at 10 weeks. With my last pregnancy I wasn't able to get in until 12 weeks for my first appointment. I get not wanting to wait though. I also want to find out sex asap to purge DD clothes if I can. I have a niece who is 1 year younger in the same season so I plan to give them the clothes if I am having a boy.

    Pink/blue/green: will be finding out 

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

    Upcoming appointments: Sept 30 for confirmation of pregnancy. I switched practices and this one does the first appt later (but still earlier than some, I know!), so it feels like forever. 

    How are you feeling? Good. I didn’t feel too sick last time and that seems to be the case this time, so far, but I did feel exhausted/achy. So just waiting for the exhaustion to hit. 

    Raves/Rants: short work week! And chipotle chicken Mac and cheese for dinner tonight - yum. 

    Questions: How long are you all waiting to tell family or friends? We waited a long time last time - not sure I can hold out as long this time. 

    GTKY: What state do you live in? DC right now. Hopefully MD soon.

    Pink/blue/green: we find out sex because picking names is hard

    Baby is the size of a(n): poppyseed (almost)

    Upcoming appointments: none scheduled yet

    How are you feeling? Anxious, had a late miscarriage in April.  I have two living children,  all 3 were girls.  Praying for a healthy baby and praying I will be accepted into a new OB office that delivers at a different hospital than where I delivered my Angel.

    Raves/Rants: faint lines on pregnancy tests suck

    Questions:

    Pink/blue/green: we will definitely find out. We did not last time and I would never do that again. 

    Baby is the size of a(n): poppyseed

    Upcoming appointments: Sunday I have my screening appointment because the last nugget was IUGR. We will see. I would like more appointments but not if it’s because of something g bad. 

    How are you feeling? All my belly fat is bloated AF. If I put on my pregnancy clothes I look pregnant. Oh well. I can lose the fat after this one I suppose. 

    Raves/Rants: just happy to be having another one. Hoping the nausea doesn’t hit me this time around. 

    Questions: nope

    Baby is the size of a(n): Poppyseed

    Upcoming appointments: Waiting for midwives to call me back to schedule first prenatal. Have a back up appt. Sept 11th with family doc though in case they are too long of a wait. 

    How are you feeling?Mostly good. Bit of Nausea, but totally manageable so far. Boobs just started getting heavy and sore.   

    Raves/Rants: None yet!

    Pink/blue/green: We will be finding out. I’m way too much of a planner and shopper to not know.

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

    Upcoming appointments: I have to call around today and see what I need to do. I don’t have a doctor right now and there’s typically a 2+yr wait list for one where I live. 

    How are you feeling? Just very tired!

    Raves/Rants: Nothing yet!

    Questions: None yet but I’ll have a lot soon

    GTKY: What state do you live in? BC, Canada
  • @Linsbins I'm also curious to know why you didn't like being Team Green.

    EDD: May 14th

    Pink/blue/green: Green? Maybe? We'll see...

    Baby is the size of a(n): cupcake sprinkle

    Pink/blue/green: finding out as soon as possible :smile:

    Baby is the size of a(n): round sprinkle

    Upcoming appointments: first appointment is 9/17 but I believe it's just an office visit not US

    How are you feeling? pretty good for the most part.  I have a little nausea in the mornings and afternoons but nothing too bad yet.  I'm also feeling really bruised today.  At first I thought my bra and pants were just too tight hurting, but it's actually like all of my skin is one big bruise and so anything touching it hurts.

    Raves/Rants: My husband is working on making a backyard playground area for DD this weekend to put her swingset, play house etc so he doesn't have to move them every time he mows.  I'm excited imagining next summer when I can sit outside with baby and watch her play :smile:

    Questions: Nothing yet

    Pink/blue/green: Definitely finding out. We were really happy finding out with DD, so we're planning to do that again.

    Baby is the size of a(n): I'm not even sure, since I literally found out this morning and haven't looked at an app yet! Lol

    Upcoming appointments: None scheduled yet. I'm going in today for my first beta draw, and if everything looks good after round 2 I will have a phone appointment probably next week. First ultrasound will probably be at the end of this month.

    How are you feeling? It varies. The thing that tipped me off that I was pregnant was a constant stretching/full feeling in my lower abdomen, combined with some round ligament-like cramping, boob soreness, and waves of nausea on and off throughout the day. This morning I felt super nauseous while sitting at my desk during my prep period, but as soon as students started coming in I was able to distract myself, which made me feel better.

    Raves/Rants: Nothing really, I'm just really happy to be pregnant and trying to appreciate the symptoms as reassurance before they get too annoying.

    Questions: None

    GTKY: What state do you live in? California! @Linsbins and @ruby696 where are you? I work in San Jose but live in the Santa Cruz mountains.

    Pink/blue/green: we will find out! We found out with DD and I was glad that we did. 

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

    Upcoming appointments: nurse phone call on Friday the 13th since I’m a STM they said I didn’t need to come in. I’m grateful to not have to wrangle a two year old quite yet. First ultrasound scheduled October 3. 

    How are you feeling? Energy is gone and lots of heaviness in my uterus. Last time I was sick around 6 weeks so I’m expecting that to start at some point. 

    Raves/Rants: none yet 

    GTKY: What state do you live in? Michigan!

    I didn’t feel like I bonded with baby and I ended up having a very hard time with her first six weeks so it would have been helpful. We were both kept a week after birth due to complications. I’m also not a baby person in general so I really needed that extra bond. Dh loved it though and would do it again. I told him no more children until it’s my way. Plus with a second I have a ton of girl clothes and I would rather organize them while KU than with a newborn. 

    Hey CA ladies!!! Not sure I want to say where just yet. Creepers be lurkin.

  • @Linsbins That's a good point about bonding. It's definitely something to think about...

    Yeah! What do you teach? I’m freaking exhausted by the end of the day after being “on” all day.

  • @soprano19 I teach kindergarten. They are a hot mess. I only have three that went to preschool so they don’t know anything, and I have three that run away. Two just aren’t used to someone telling them what to do, and one is undiagnosed but mom and principal suspect autism (suggested by the doctor, mom was shocked when I suggested she do the testing). Luckily I’m not too tired at work yet but we are an open concept classroom so my aide and the next door teacher can see me all day. I don’t know what I’m going to do when morning sickness kicks in. Last pregnancy it was from 6+1 until the day I delivered. What do you teach? I taught 4th last year and it was so much more sitting and resting and I enjoyed that, haha. 

    @ruby696 I just think then I would have been able to imagine this little person instead if feeling detached. Probably not for everyone I guess. 
  • @Linsbins I teach high school music, so I spend a lot of evenings and weekends at school. Right now it’s marching band season, so I’m really teaching 6 days a week. It’s a ton of work and often feels more like running a business than teaching, but at the same time, I don’t know how you teachers of younger grades do it. I definitely don’t have the patience required to teach kinders.
