  • @JustAnotherUsername16 aww, thanks so much! Boo - wish you could be fully remote. On the plus side, I think some universities are going to offer vaccinations to staff. Not because everyone is in the priority groups, but because apparently we have so few organizations that are in a position to efficiently vaccinate large groups. 

    @emeraldduchess oh my gosh! I lurked a lot on ttgp and was so sad for you after that cycle. How exciting!! 

    @sawasap Congratulations!! Glad you have a scan so soon. :)

    @chewie5990 - We have similar interests! I love cooking and binge watching Netflix too! Though, my desire to cook has really been bad the past couple weeks. 

    We go skiing/snowboarding every month too, bc we have a place in the mountains. But we found out before I used any days on my annual pass, so going to let it roll
    over. I have friends who have skied throughout their pregnancies, but I’m too nervous for that.

  • @aebrown061289 - Aww were dad twins and our kiddos are about the same age! Have you told them?  I think DH will spill the beans soon bc he isn’t careful talking about the baby around them. But my DD cannot keep any secrets, so I want to wait until the first trimester.

    @wiseh Ahhh hi!! Round two together! I’ve been stalking this thread since I saw you post in the board organization hoping you were September too lol
  • @calimama88 yeah I'm not comfortable with OB said she usually says if you are an expert skiier/snowboarder she would feel comfortable going during your first trimester..but I am definitely not an expert! Also I worry a lot about other people losing control and running into me which I can't control at all. It just really stinks because we got DS1 a snowboard for his birthday this year and I only got a chance to go with him 1 time and I was sooo looking forward to seeing him progress and having fun with him! 
  • @chewie5990 - bummer! Hopefully he can just take classes this year. I’m not expert either, definitely scared of other boarders and skiers.
