  • I'm ok with joining week 3!

    Estimated Due Date / Weeks + Days: May 26 (17+5)
    FTM/STM/STM+:  FTM
    Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out:  green
    Interesting Baby Fact / Baby is the size of: baby is the size of a video game controller  
    Upcoming appointments:  I just had an appointment last week, so nothing until my ultrasound on 1/20 and midwife appt on 1/21
    How are you feeling?  So emotional!! I cancelled plans to go home for Christmas because covid numbers in PA are getting insane so it's much safer to stay put in Oregon. I know it was the right thing to do but I'm still so sad about it--I haven't seen my family since Feb 1 (when we moved) and I'm just missing them so much. I'm also missing out on my little sister's drive-by baby shower (that I planned) so I am super bummed.
    Rants/Raves:  rant--my doctor sent in a prescription for me last week, to a pharmacy that I've used before. I called them 24 hrs later to see if it was ready to be picked up since I hadn't heard from them. They said they didn't have it in so they'd have to order it and it wouldnt be ready until today, and it would be $200!! I'm so irritated with this pharmacy (this is the 3rd issue I've had with them) because they didn't bother to call me to let me know--it sounded like if I hadn't called in, they wouldnt have even ordered the medication.
    Questions:  none right now
    GTKY: Describe your ideal relaxing day (or night). *Bonus: How can you (or a loved one) create some element of that for yourself in the next 2 weeks? Hmmm...probably lounging on a beach somewhere but that isnt going to happen 😂 so snuggling with my dog and not having to worry about any housework--no cooking, no cleaning, no laundry!

    Poll: Yes, most of us have been lurking on the other weeks anyways, it gets hard when they're separated into 4 groups, although sometimes there are some interesting side conversations. 

    Estimated Due Date / Weeks + Days: June 6th, 16w2d
    FTM/STM/STM+: STM
    Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out:  Finding out
    Interesting Baby Fact / Baby is the size of:  Philippine Tarsier
    Upcoming appointments: Still haven't booked it. We decided to wait until January instead of December, but that will be two months between appointments. I hope everything will be ok.
    How are you feeling?  
    Rants/Raves:  From appointments. This is when I wish I had a landline. I made the decision to rely on WiFi since we're at home all day for COVID, so I haven't renewed anything since March. But now that my husband isn't around I can't borrow his phone for a call. So I keep stalling in adding minutes, but I should stop procrastinating and do that tomorrow. (And reschedule our anniversary plans for when he gets back in February) Works out, everything is in lockdown pretty much, so I wouldn't have enjoyed being in a hotel this week with all of it's amenities cancelled. 
    Questions:  NATM
    GTKY: Describe your ideal relaxing day (or night). *Bonus: How can you (or a loved one) create some element of that for yourself in the next 2 weeks? Spending the day outside in the sunshine, eating some foreign take out food and/or going crazy in the kitchen without having to wash dishes or clean up after myself. I still have the Sushi Groupon from our anniversary plans that has to be used by the end of the month, so that and convincing my SIL to do the chores for the day. A nice long nap would be great to. 
    (I think my anniversary plans would've be the bonus. Spend the day alone at a hotel, no kids/SIL, with my husband. Lounge at the pool in the sun, WATCH, not join, my husband go work out at the gym and eat new foods at the hotel restaurant. Bonus points if it was at a hotel outside of the city with forest trails or paths. Maybe I can find a Groupon there next year.)

    GTKY: Describe your ideal relaxing day (or night). *Bonus: How can you (or a loved one) create some element of that for yourself in the next 2 weeks? this is hard, I would love a slow start morning with a feast of breakfast food, my favorite meal.

    GTKY: Describe your ideal relaxing day (or night). *Bonus: How can you (or a loved one) create some element of that for yourself in the next 2 weeks? for me to be able to relax, i need to know that everything i could be accomplishing is already done.  so if i have a productive morning and catch up on housework and then take the rest of the day to relax and watch a movie cuddling with DH and the dogs, i feel at ease. i should be able to do this next week at some point so i am looking forward to that!

    Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out:  Pink! Just found out yesterday actually with our NIST results

    Interesting Baby Fact / Baby is the size of:  pomegranate

    Upcoming appointments:  check in with my OB next week then AS Jan 5th

    How are you feeling?  I think I'm finally hitting that second trimester sweet spot, so pretty good. Other than some cramping and random urges to cry, I feel pretty normal this week. 

    Rants/Raves:  two good things happened this week! Got our NIST results yesterday and everything looks normal, so relieved! Second... The maternity store in our city was closing, so I got a bunch of things on sale! Flip side of that... Now there's no maternity store nearby...

    Questions:  NATM

    GTKY: Describe your ideal relaxing day (or night). *Bonus: How can you (or a loved one) create some element of that for yourself in the next 2 weeks?  Hmm.... Probably a nice day of hiking/ snowshoeing in the mountains with hubby and our dog followed by a cozy evening in a cabin with a fire and hot tub. With all the fresh snow were getting, I should drag the hubby out for a snowshoe over the holidays. There's a trail not too far away with frozen waterfalls that looks super pretty!
