Team: finding out
Baby is the size of: a dill pickle! 💚
Upcoming appointments: I have a mental health check-in with my family doctor this week—just a phone call.
How are you feeling?: Today was a good day physically. I had a lot of energy and power cleaned the house. But I’ve been so irritable, I just want my incredibly annoying family to leave me alone (I love them, but go away please).
Rants/Raves: daylight savings is also grinding my gears today, but I am so excited that it’s almost spring. Longer, warmer days!
GTKY: What is the best concert you’ve been to? Or what band/singer would you like to see? Snow Patrol at the Greek Theatre in LA is probably the top of my list, Hot Hot Heat opened so that was a bonus! I also thought Tegan and Sara were really fun to see live. The most random concert I’ve been to was Aqua (as in Barbie Girl, Aqua) when I was maybe 10 years old. I was supposed to see Jimmy Eat World last April, but obviously it was cancelled 😞.
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: August 27/16 + 2
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Team Pink
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: Yesterday the daily "your baby is the size of" update on the Bump app was "a CD," and for some reason it's really cracking me up thinking about a very flat baby.
Upcoming appointments: End of the month for a regular check-up.
How are you feeling?: Good!
Rants/Raves: All raves this week- physically I feel great, I'm enjoying being able to talk more about this pregnancy now that I'm solidly in the second trimester, this spring weather is awesome, I'm so psyched for longer days, I'm fully vaccinated as of this past Thursday (two weeks since my second shot)... just feel like a lot of stuff that I've been eagerly waiting for is all coming about at once.
Questions: A pregnant celeb I follow on Insta did an ad for cord blood banking recently (lol)- is that something I should be looking into more? Don't know anything about it.
GTKY: I'm not much of a concert person, I went to lots as a teenager but I'm struggling to think of many I've been to as an adult/that would reflect my current taste in music. I saw Lady Gaga freshman year of college, that was pretty cool I guess? But overall just not my scene.
@pickle-chips sorry about your family, I know that feeling though! Are they doing anything in particular that's driving you nuts?
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: 8/15, 18+2
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Team green!
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: An artichoke.
Upcoming appointments: A/S next week!
How are you feeling?: Pretty good. Still gaggy sometimes. Still have days where I’m really tired. But, mostly...pretty good.
Rants/Raves: Rave. I’m camping for the week. I LOVE camping.
Oh, man. How to choose. Pre-kids, I went to a LOT of concerts/music festivals. So, I’ve seen a lot of artists/bands. But, I’m too old now! The last time I went to Coachella, I was like, “yeah...I think I’ve outgrown this scene.” 😂 But, I still try to get to concerts pretty often. My favorite artist of all time is Dallas Green (City and Colour). I’ve seen him SO many times, and I’m always blown away. Not my typical genre (I’m not a big country fan), but Garth Brooks is probably the best performer I have ever seen live. Also, Justin Timberlake was phenomenal. Fleetwood Mac was a bucket list concert, and they did NOT disappoint. I also love Kings of Leon live. Okay, I could keep going, but I’ll stop!
@pickle-chips, we have similar tastes in music! I LOVE Tegan and Sara live. I’ve seen them several times. They’re fantastic. And Snow Patrol! I was just listening to them today! 😍
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: 8/28, 16+5
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: pink!
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: an orange I think
Upcoming appointments: 4/5 with MFM for AS
How are you feeling?: better these last couple of days. I’m still sick in the evenings occasionally and mild headaches daily, but it’s much improved this week.
Rants/Raves: it’s been a crazy busy week at work. I asked for a few vacation days for spring break. We can’t go anywhere officially but I need some days off! I hate using PTO knowing I’ll need it for FMLA but oh well. My sanity needs it!
GTKY: What is the best concert you’ve been to? Or what band/singer would you like to see? Anything country. Probably Toby Keith. We were in Panama City Beach in college when Kenny Chesney through a surprise free concert. That was fun! We all thought it was a crazy rumor!
