    Upcoming appointments: Not til the first week of October

    How are you feeling?: Eh. So apparently I've got what my doc thinks might be gastritis which caused me so much pain last week.  I'm on a daily pepcid ac now which is helping.  I still have to eat like every 2 hours and also limit how much water I have at once (no chugging) otherwise, I either get pain or throw up.  It's been a fun week.

    Rants/Raves:  Rant: above. Rave: the temperature dropped over the weekend and it felt like fall was here -- it was glorious.  

    Questions:

    GTKY: What is your favorite thing about Fall?  Hoodies, fire pit weather!

    How are you feeling?: like garbage. Headaches daily, weekly migraines, nausea still going strong. 

    Rants/Raves: rave- I got my first workout in since I was about 8 weeks pregnant last night!! I felt like garbage yesterday, but after my workout I felt like better garbage so that’s positive at least haha.

    Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of:  Magic 8 ball

    Upcoming appointments:  None for another 5 weeks! But I am very, very grateful everything has looked good so far and I guess there really hasn't been a reason for more appointments.

    How are you feeling?:  Still pretty tired and getting frequent headaches, which I think might be linked to lying down - is that even possible? Like blood pooling at the back of your head or something? My appetite is returning, but only for candy and carbs :O

    Rants/Raves: Rant - Ants all over my bathroom! And is the foundation on my house shifting?  Bolts and bumps are starting to protrude from the walls where I've never noticed them before. Ugh, I cannot deal with a major house issue right now.  Rave - I'm about to finish a major part of a huge project at work, which is so satisfying.

    GTKY: What is your favorite thing about Fall? Being cozy, and the feeling of new beginnings!

    Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: Babies are the size of chipmunks (not including their tails) lol

    Upcoming appointments: MFM Thursday! Can't wait to see how my babies are growing and hopefully, finding out the gender!

    How are you feeling?: Feeling the same...sick, migraines and insomnia started.

    Rants/Raves: Didn't have internet for 5 days and the app is soooo slow on my phone...what did we do before internet and cell phones?  It's amazing how much we depend on these things.  Sometimes I just want to live off grid and not worry about silly things like the internet.

    Questions: GTKY: What is your favorite thing about Fall?  I love everything!  The jeans, boots/uggs, hoodies, warm apple cider, campfires, the amazing leaf colors and the cold weather!

  • @manillabar my appointment went well,  thanks! My baby was bei g uncooperative  and the ultrasound tech was getting really annoyed but we ended up getting what we needed in the end :)

    Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Waiting on NIPT results now. 

    Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: lemon

    Upcoming appointments: October 8th

    How are you feeling?: Better! Not nearly as nauseous anymore and getting more energy.  

    Rants/Raves: Wow, sorry I wan't very interactive this past week. Life has been really busy for me recently. I finally had my OB appointment last Thursday to confirm, once again, that baby is doing fine. Unfortunately my bleeding started again last night but I'm just trying not to stress about it because this may be an ongoing issue for me. Thankfully I just got a Doppler! So I have been able to hear the heartbeat. :) Other then that, I just started a new role at work this week, had my annual review with my supervisor and broke the news that I am pregnant. So that was all a bit stressful. We also finally closed on a home refinance yesterday and I have been in the process of car shopping. My current lease will be getting inspected this Friday and then I plan to drop it off next Monday and go pick u my new ride! I'm excited to actually own my vehicle again because I have leased for the past 8 years and I'm sooo over it. Also really looking forward to finding out the sex of the baby soon so I can start making plans for the nursery. 

    Questions: None at the moment. 

    GTKY: What is your favorite thing about Fall? I love fall clothes. I grew up in Michigan but I have lived the past 5 years in the South. So I don't get to wear my fall/winter clothing much and I love a cozy sweater and some Fall boots. I also love the comfort food that comes with the Fall.

    How are you feeling?: so much better this week, savoring my last Tuesday at home as I’m adding Tuesday to my work hours next week. 

    Rants/Raves: Raves-feeling like the 2nd trimester energy is here and I haven’t been nauseous in a few days. Rants-still dreading telling my boss, planning on doing so next week once the NT bloodwork comes back. 

    Questions: None

    GTKY: What is your favorite thing about Fall?   Everything haha cooler weather, pumpkins, foliage, and apple cider!
  • @treebagel I really hope your test works out for you! Congrats on your new job!! 
    @princessjenney I just took my first bump picture too! I'm definitely showing now and I feel like it happened over night. 
    @juliebeannn Are you having acid reflux? I had it BAD throughout 3rd tri with my DD and I ended up taking Prilosec everyday. 
    @jfcmomoftwo I was able to work out for the first time in 2 weeks on Saturday. Haven't worked out again since then but I'm hopefull now that I'm in second tri things will continue to improve. That is until 3rd tri when I know it all goes downhill again.  :D 
    @kloe818 I must have missed a previous post/update from you somewhere... what's going on regarding the Amnio? 
    @travandas Are you hoping they will be able to tell the gender from an u/s?

    Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Finding out, hopefully in just a few of weeks!

    Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: Lemon or daisy

    Upcoming appointments: Just had one yesterday, next one is October 1st

    How are you feeling?: Ehh. The nausea got worse this week out of nowhere. I’ve been waking up during the night nauseous, and I’m having trouble falling back asleep after getting up to pee at like 1am. I’m also getting more headaches/migraines.

    Rants/Raves: Raves—I had an ultrasound yesterday and baby was moving like crazy! I filmed the whole appointment for my husband this time and we can’t stop watching it. Also, I finally got my bloodwork done yesterday and ended up getting a great phlebotomist which is nice for someone who tends to pass out easily during blood draws haha (I didn’t pass out this time, she was really good!)

    Questions:

    GTKY: What is your favorite thing about Fall? Everything! We tend to still have hot days here until November even, but the nights start cooling down in the fall which I love. 
  • @jenotontx Ugh I'm sorry to hear the bleeding came back! I know it's hard not to stress, even though you know everything is ok.  No, it's not acid reflux, but it's acid related. I think it's overproduction of acid in my stomach that doesn't come back up but just festers in my stomach causing irritation to the lining or something. So it's like heartburn/acid reflux pain but just in my actual stomach, not in my chest.  I'm on a daily dose of pepcid ac for the time being.  I hope it goes away.  Keeping my meals small helps, but having to eat every 2 hours is really annoying since I'm not normally a snacker.  Sigh.

  • @jenotontx Our NIPT came back inconclusive/not looking good. Geneticist said it was likely due to being over 220 pounds and being on blood thinner (Lovenox specifically) because that actually eats the baby's DNA. Instead of doing all the other screenings just to see if amnio is a good idea, we're going straight to amnio. No point in possibly getting MORE false positives on top of what we got saying we had a 1 in 17 chance of the baby having an abnormality. The NT scan came back pretty normal so we're breathing a little easier but Monday is coming fast and I hate needles. And this one is gonna be a BIG ONE. 
  • @kloe818 Oh gosh, I’m so sorry you have to go through all of this. I really hope the test is just off and nothing is wrong with the baby. The NT scan sounds like a good sign. I will be crossing my finger for you on Monday that everything goes as smoothly as possible. 

    @juliebeannn Really hope things improve for you soon! I remember as soon as I had my daughter it was a night and day change for my acid reflux. I really hope you don’t have this your entire pregnancy! 
    juliebeannn
  • @jenotontx It was likely a false positive for the 1 in 17. The company took my age and the low fetal DNA into account when it came up with that number and didn't take into account the other stuff. As soon as the results come back I'll share.

    Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: orange

    Upcoming appointments: next Tuesday and blood work this weekend for quad screen 

    How are you feeling?: I'm not feeling amazing but its probably my fault at this point. I'm just not a big eater or drinker while I'm home and I only work friday through Sunday so I get weak and dehydrated through the week get better over weekend then drop again. I'll figure it out it's just frustrating.

    Rants/Raves: rant since covid my work schedule has been changed. First they were cutting us 12 hours a paycheck now I'm cut 12 every other paycheck. Only the xray department is doing this. Ultrasound and nuc med are still on the 12 hrs a paycheck and ct scan and mri are not cut at all. I was hired as the weekend imaging supervisor i am supposedly doing 5 department heads jobs Friday thru sunday. It is so frustrating being taken off the schedule when I'm supposed to be the only supervisor in the whole department. Like these people don't need a supervisor? It was every third Friday which friday stinks because it's the only day I have a few hours to touch base with my boss so I know what's gone on all week. Now my boss has told the xray week day supervisor who does the schedule it's too hard for me to be gone Friday. Well duh I'm literally doing 5 peoples jobs watching 5 departments work flows while taking xrays and you all thought it was a good idea for me to be absent. So now I'll be off sundays which cuts into my shift differential and now I'll be getting even less pay for my 24 hrs than previously. I don't think I'm better than anyone or more deserving but my job position shouldn't be cut imo. Ok rant over rave to my husband who has been really caring and affectionate recently and he installed a new router for the house making all the streaming tv stuff much h better. 

    Questions:

    GTKY: What is your favorite thing about Fall? The smell, Halloween, hoodies and leggings
  • Sorry about not being able to respond sooner.  Where I live we do not have any internet providers available so we have to use a rural internet company.  They recently made changes and my internet has been very spotty.

    @bcashaw I hope you start feeling better soon!  Thanks, I hope the babies cooperate!
    @treebagel BP meds are horrendous!  Congratulations on your new job and praying you have a great first day!
    @princessjenney You are feeling exactly how I am when it comes to pregnancy body issues.  I love that your husband made you feel beautiful!  It makes the pregnancy body completely worth it!
    @juliebeannn I hope you start feeling better!
    @kloe818 rofl @ *farts that could peel wallpaper* I've been known to clear a room...I just tell my kids it's the babies not me! lol
    @manillabar I fill a mug with half apple cider half water...heat it up in the microwave and top it with cinnamon. Sooo delicious!
    @cmortmain I hate ants...they are so hard to get rid of!
    @jenotontx Yes, I'm hoping the babies will cooperate! 
    @annanbby Just remember nausea/headaches or migraines mean hormones are doing their job and baby is growing!
    @Yiggle09 Hopefully, they will see that these departments need a supervisor.

  • @jenotontx I went to the OB internal medicine clinic in my city for my daily headaches and was pretty much prescribed daily exercise. Apparently cardio and strength training will help with the blood flow to the head and by extension my headaches!! Guess I don’t have any excuses now haha :D

    How are you feeling?: My nausea is almost completely gone but I am still have terrible acid reflux/heartburn at night. I am also just exhausted lately and cannot seem to get enough sleep.

    Rants/Raves:The past week has been crazy, between Tuesday and today I had 10 student IEP's since all of them had to be updated due to the closures and now that we are virtual until November at the earliest. It has been many late nights and many long days. Put that together with not sleeping at night I am running on empty. Looking forward to the weekend so that I can relax a little and enjoy the holiday weekend with my family.

  • @swbecca528 We have had our Ford Explorer for 5 years and I LOVE it! We currently have two little ones in it and have plenty of space when we go on trips but it is easy to maneuver/not bulky or difficult to find a parking spot for. It is especially nice for those with long legs as the area for your feet in the first and second row is lower than most vehicles to give some extra legroom. I occasionally look at what we may purchase as our next vehicle and always end up circling back to the Explorer lol
  • Hi @kloe818 , just wanted to say I'm thinking of you with your amnio today, fingers crossed all goes well!
    kloe818
  • @cmortmain Yeah it didn't happen. no one told me to stop my blood thinners. Rescheduled for during the anatomy scan in 2 weeks.  Thank you for thinking of me!!
