    EDD/W+D: 3/7; 25+ 2

    Team pink/blue/green: Blue

    Baby is the size of a(n): As long as a standard brick... surely that isn't right?! That seems so big.  

    Cravings/Aversions: I've been eating a lot of pre-made, bagged salads, which is so random for me. I love salad but usually make my own! 

    Upcoming appts: 12/9 for a regular checkup, but with my new doctor! I am excited. The interactions I've had so far with her staff have been AMAZING and so much better than my last.

    Rants/Raves: I had my glucose test on Friday but haven't heard anything. No news is good news, right?

    Questions: None.

    GTKY: What (if anything) are you shopping for on Black Friday? Anything for baby? I'm getting my husband headphones and we are getting our stroller/car seat from Target!
  • @vrstrawn, thanks for kicking this off! Also, headphones (especially if they're noise cancelling!) sounds pretty clutch with baby on the way...

    EDD/W+D: March 8, 25+1

    Team pink/blue/green: Green

    Baby is the size of a(n): Catcher's mitt, eggplant, cauliflower 

    Cravings/Aversions: Nope! Definitely getting hungrier when I wake up, but I can't say anything is too different. 

    Upcoming appts: Dec 13 for glucose test and regular check-in. Unfortunately, the appt is right after our holiday breakfast, so I'll probably have to hold off on the cheesecake bites and french toast. 

    Rants/Raves: Long weekend, amiright??

    Questions: Not today! 

    GTKY: What (if anything) are you shopping for on Black Friday? Anything for baby? Already bought a couple things -- big art and rug for nursery. I'll probably get a few gifts for family, and I think we might get the travel crib and carrier I've been eyeing. Also, I think I'll benefit from yoga passes and ~maybe~ Barre3 online subscription for a year from Black Friday for Christmas gifts.

  • EDD/W+D: March 7, 25+2 (so crazy!)

    Team pink/blue/green: Team pink!

    Baby is the size of a(n): Zack Morris' brick phone

    Cravings/Aversions: I can feel my body wanting food with more nutrients, but nothing still sounds good. 

    Upcoming appts: December 16th with another new doctor in the practice. I'm doing my "rounds" in my OB's practice and I LOVED the last doctor I visited, so I'm really looking forward to meeting this next one! Glucose screening came back good from last week... soo happy I passed! Blood results showed I am slightly anemic so I've been taking SlowFe Iron. 

    Rants/Raves: I'm with you, @pdx2020! This long weekend has come at a perfect time! I only work today and tomorrow, and DH is taking off work Wednesday so we get to spend some quality time together before holiday festivities this week and weekend.

    Questions: I was thinking of using the bassinet from our stroller as the bassinet in our room each night, but am rethinking it because DH and I both have pretty bad outdoor allergies and I don't really want to bring all that stuff inside. Any bassinet suggestions that won't break the bank?

    GTKY: What (if anything) are you shopping for on Black Friday? Anything for baby? I'm definitely keeping my eye open for baby stuff! Hoping to get some inexpensive clothes for the newborn stage, basically just looking at onesies/pants and footed rompers. Otherwise looking for some skincare for me- my skin has been SO dry and winter just started!

    @vrstrawn DH got me headphones a couple years ago and they are the BEST!! Good choice!
    @pdx2020 yay for getting stuff for you!!  Treat yo'self!
  • @lemonlove86, are you getting a pack n play/travel crib? Most come with a pretty $ bassinet. I think the Graco ones can be <$100. We’re getting the Guava Lotus crib + bassinet which is $300 right now - $100 off of usual price, but will be using that as primary sleep area, work playpen, and travel crib for grandparents, so want to make sure it’s a light, easy one to move around. 
  • DD/W+D: 3/5/20, 24w 5d

    Team pink/blue/green: still GREEN! 

    Baby is the size of a(n): I just don’t keep track anymore 😂  

    Cravings/Aversions: not much of either really 

    Upcoming appts: at my appt today my OB told me I have abnormal or eccentric cord insertion and she’s referring me to a high risk OB 😣, I of course went home and googled too much. now I’m worried as it can lead to - worst case- placenta rupture and restricted uterine growth. Trying not to think about it too much until I see the high risk OB 😒 

    Rants/Raves: thankful for a healthy baby and my two healthy toddlers I have right now , also Blanqi leggings really are amazing ! Just received mine from their sale 

    Questions: anyone car shopping ? We’re on the hunt for a minivan now that we’ll have 3 in car seats !  

    GTKY: What (if anything) are you shopping for on Black Friday? Myself ! 😂 and our kiddos
