Re: Group 1 (3/1-3/8) Weekly Checkin 10/7

  • EDD/W+D: 3/3; 18+6

    Team finding out/pink/blue/green: Pink

    Baby is the size of a(n): artichoke... as tall as string cheese lol

    Upcoming appts: A/S 10/16! I’m getting impatient!

    How are you feeling?: Good! Feeling baby girl every now and then, I can’t wait until it’s every day. I officially feel “heavier”. Working out is getting really difficult but I’m loving my little belly. Also, cramps/ Braxton Hicks every now and then. 👎🏽

    Cravings/Aversions: Don’t even talk to me about grilled chicken or turkey. 

    Rants/Raves/Questions: Rave: had my OB check in last week and baby girl’s heartbeat was strong, that sound will never get old. Rant: What is “sleep”? I got a body pillow and it’s very comfy but so big it barely fits on the bed with my husband and I. I feel like it’s only making things worse.

    GTKY: Do you believe in ghosts/have you ever seen a ghost? I believe in spirits that may or may not be in the form of “ghosts”. But if I ever saw one I think I’d pass out from fear lol.
  • EDD/W+D: 3/7; 18+2

    Team finding out/pink/blue/green: finding out 10/21....feels SO FAR AWAY

    Baby is the size of a(n): artichoke

    Upcoming appts: 10/11 for a sonogram and 10/21 for anatomy scan/gender

    How are you feeling?: I'm finally feeling better!! No more nausea/vomiting or constipation. I've had more energy!

    Cravings/Aversions: none

    Rants/Raves/Questions: I'm worried about weight gain! My doctor hasn't said anything so I'm sure I'm fine. It's just so weird to see the steady gain. 

    GTKY: Do you believe in ghosts/have you ever seen a ghost? I believe in spirits..

  • EDD/W+DMarch 7, 18 + 2! Due date twins @vrstrawn!

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

    Baby is the size of a(n): Disposable camera

    Upcoming appts: Anatomy ultrasound the 18th, then regular checkup the 25th

    How are you feeling?: So much better!! I finally have that second tri energy everyone says exists. Actually managing to do housework and cook dinner, which I basically haven't done in 18 weeks, lol.

    Cravings/Aversions: Taco Bell 4lyfe. PSA not a fan of their new chalupa, if anyone was looking to try that  :D

    Rants/Raves/Questions: Starting to get stretch marks on my lower belly. Just using regular lotion, but is there something else that works better to moisturize? Also I'm starting to build my registry and it's so overwhelming. Loving all the product spotlights and trying to keep the list lean and mean, but there's still so much to consider!

    GTKY: Do you believe in ghosts/have you ever seen a ghost? I'm with @slimjoco - I definitely believe in spirits!
  • EDD/W+D: March 8, 18+1

    Team finding out/pink/blue/green: Green!

    Baby is the size of a(n): Croissant, artichoke, sweet potato. 

    Upcoming appts: Oct 23 for A/S! Kind of jealous y'all are next week, @slimjoco and @lemonlove86

    How are you feeling?: Decent. Finally getting over a cold I've had for a week. I'm still the bump-less wonder though, so feeling a little weird about that. 

    Cravings/Aversions: Nah, back to normal eating. 

    Rants/Raves/Questions: Nothing on my end, but @lemonlove86 -- Bio Oil is pretty great and definitely keeps any itchiness down. Also, even though it's mostly genetics, putting lotion/oil on twice a day is supposed to make a difference. Also also, I've found googling minimalist registries is pretty great -- every product feels quality and thoughtful and there aren't a ton of extras. This one was pretty helpful:

    Also @vrstrawn, I found this calculator helped me! It's a week-by-week and takes into consideration where you started and tells you if you're in a "normal" range.  

    GTKY: Do you believe in ghosts/have you ever seen a ghost? No. My imagination is way too active and I would never be able to sleep again if I let myself. 
  • EDD/W+D: 3/1 19w2d

    Team finding out/pink/blue/green: pink

    Baby is the size of a(n): dollar bill

    Upcoming appts: So I completely missed my regular OB appointment yesterday!! So embarrassing and unlike me!! I am seeing a prenatal specialist for AMA, which I had last week for anatomy scan, so I guess I put my OB on the back burner. Didn't even realize until looking through my calendar yesterday evening. Need to learn to set alerts for events!!

    How are you feeling?: Pretty good, some sort of hemorrhoid feeling already which is way too early and makes me worry for further along!! Some RLP but seems to be subsiding if I take it easier.

    Cravings/Aversions: I'm always a sugar monster, and that was intensified for a bit, but also seems to be leveling out. Pretty much anything I hear of, I want, a chalupa sounds great and I just ate. 

    Rants/Raves/Questions: THE APP, WTF!!! I've seen a couple people mention this, but the community will not load. And while I don't post from my phone or hardly at all, I do like to follow along with everyone!!

    GTKY: Do you believe in ghosts/have you ever seen a ghost? Haven't really seen anything that would make me hardcore believe. Have had like two instances of dream paralysis, one where I thought I saw a person and even called 911 after coming to. That was creepy, and made me wonder. But I've chalked it up to a dream. And my kids will also make me go hmm once in awhile when they smile and/or wave to 'no one' behind me!! 

  • EDD/W+D: March 1st, 2020/19+2

    Team finding out/pink/blue/green: Blue

    Baby is the size of a(n): Mango

    Upcoming appts: A/S and monthly appt on Oct. 11! 

    How are you feeling?: Mostly calm and excited to meet our little guy. Tired all the so tired... 

    Cravings/Aversions: I still can't do crunchy, fresh veggies (peppers, cukes, etc.) which is SO frustrating! My cravings are all over the place, but I've had a special place in my heart for steak and cheese subs, french fries, and anything sugary.

    Rants/Raves/Questions: My insomnia is SO bad! I am comfy at night, get all settled in, and BAM I'm awake for hours. So annoying. Also, why do people that barely know you LOVE to immediately comment on your size? My mother has friends that don't even say hello, they just immediately comment on my size/how I'm carrying...God I hope I'm not annoying when I talk to pregnant women. Maybe I'm just a b***h now, who knows. LOL

    GTKY: Do you believe in ghosts/have you ever seen a ghost? Spirits, absolutely. I have never "seen" one, but I have felt their presence before. 
  • EDD/W+D: 3/1 19w4d

    Team finding out/pink/blue/green: FINALLY finding out on the 14th! (We don’t do genetic testing) 

    Baby is the size of a(n): mango

    Upcoming appts: 10/14 our 20 week ultrasound and appointment with midwife 

    How are you feeling?: wonderful and extremely emotional

    Cravings/Aversions: craving anything salty and no real aversions for now. 

    Rants/Raves/Questions: I’m in the process of finding a new job and extremely nervous that I have to disclose that I’m pregnant. I feel like I have to tell prospective employees that I am because I feel wrong not telling them until after I’m hired! Anyone else experience this?

    GTKY: Do you believe in ghosts/have you ever seen a ghost? I work in a small ICU and have seen many people pass away and I often feel a strange presence afterwards. We also have a lady in a red dress that haunts the unit.. which is super creepy when you’re there all alone 😳
  • @claireeliz, I work in HR/recruiting and usually advise candidates not to disclose until they have an offer. It sucks, but if the company tries to rescind an offer you’ll know it was because you disclosed you’re expecting which is very illegal, thanks to the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (which applies to most workplaces!). I’ve seen how disclosing too early in the interview process leads to some really pretextual reasons why a great candidate is suddenly “not the right fit.” However, if it’s super obvious that you’re pregnant, you might want to bring it up proactively and talk about your plan to return and how you’ve dealt in the past. Just my two cents though 🤷🏼‍♀️ The modern workplace is garbage for women, generally. 
  • @pdx2020 I work in HR too and was about to say the same thing! 👌🏽 @claireeliz I would wait to disclose until you have an offer in hand.
