Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: Aug 4/22+5
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: 🦖
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: Babe has eyebrows now!
Upcoming appointments: pelvic floor PT tomorrow, 24 week apts next week!
How are you feeling?: still going strong. My lower back and hips are starting to hurt a bit, but I'm blaming work for that. I got an SI belt last week which was glorious when it stays on right.
Rants/Raves: We went out this weekend and bought our stroller, car seat and a rocker. That was a big trip, but I'm glad to have it done. Its going to take a lot of time and effort to desensitize my dog to these new things, so I'm glad we're doing it a little early.
GTKY: What’s your favourite seasonal candy? I love mint, so I'm going to have to go Christmas, like candy canes and stuff. Mini eggs are solid, but cream eggs are so gross.
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: 21+4/Aug 12
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Finding Out (3 more weeks!)
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: a pomegranate
Upcoming appointments: April 23 for Anatomy Scan take 2
How are you feeling?: Good, I even did a 4.5 mile jog/walk yesterday!
Rants/Raves: People keep asking us about names and we really don’t want to share just yet. We don’t want anyone’s opinions or suggestions. I know they are just curious/excited but it annoys me plus I don’t like lying every time someone asks and saying we don’t have names picked out when we do (for a girl at least, still working on a boy name)
Questions: none at the moment
GTKY: What’s your favourite seasonal candy? Starburst Jelly Beans - I don’t know if they are seasonal but I feel like I can only find them around Easter.
Estimated Due Date/Weeks+Days: August 1st/ 23+1
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Green
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: A grapefruit
Upcoming appointments: Gestational Diabetes screening on the 22nd
How are you feeling?: I feel fine. This really is the sweet spot of pregnancy. I have my typical amount of energy, and MH keeps having to tell me to stop doing "dangerous" things (yesterday I was standing on the edge of our raised flowerbeds to hang a hanging planter up) because I feel like myself and I don't think about why I might need to be more careful about falls.
Rants/Raves: Our doula just opened up spots in June for birth classes, so I have those dates on the calendar! They offer monthly classes (currently in 2 parts due to COVID, with the main class being virtual and then an outdoor hands-on overview on another day), and it's weird to see that they have multiple dates that would be after my due date!
GTKY: What’s your favourite seasonal candy? I used to love the creme eggs, but I haven't had one in years, so I probably wouldn't like them now. I agree with @dancingnarwhal about the seasonal jellybean flavors. I am much more of a gummy candy person, and the starburst jellybeans are so good!
@dancingnarwhal For your name dilemma, I know this might be too confrontational, but I have known many people who said "we have a name picked out but we're not sharing it". It probably annoys people, but I always understood (except when my sister did it, but then she ended up letting me guess it on my own with hints )
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: Aug 13/21+3
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Green right now but maybe finding out? We've been Green 2x already, but I kinda want to know this time
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: a large banana
Upcoming appointments: I'm meeting my OB for the first time (lol) on Wednesday. I had my anatomy scan already, but in the shuffle of everything I'm not sure which doctor is getting results or when I'll hear what they are.
How are you feeling?: Still in shock, but accepting it. Still getting triggered for morning sickness which is BS because I literally had none in the 1st trimester (hence not knowing I was pregnant until so late)
Rants/Raves: I just started a new job about 6 weeks ago, and I'm still in my 3m probation period, and I have no idea how I'm going to tell the boss that I'm not only pregnant, but that I had no idea when I started and that I'm due in August already. Its going to sound so unbelievable.
GTKY: What’s your favourite seasonal candy? I love After Eight mints, which i believe are a Canadian item, but are available at Christmas. Think peppermint patty but thinner and creamier.
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: Aug 10/ 22+1
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: 💙
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: coconut 🥥
Upcoming appointments: End of April
How are you feeling?: Braxton Hicks contractions are here with a vengeance. Yesterday I was actually concerned I was going into preterm labor because they just wouldn’t let up despite all the water and sitting. I had these with my last pregnancy and went to the OB ER many times for monitoring only to be told to drink more water and billed $900 for the visit. 🙄 Trying to avoid that this pregnancy unless they get really bad. I will feel very relieved once I am further along and the episodes occur, but right now with only being 22 weeks they are really scary.
Rants/Raves: See above re: annoying and painful contractions.
GTKY: What’s your favourite seasonal candy? I’m not a candy person. However if I can rewrite the question to include seasonal foods/flavors, I am obsessed with anything pumpkin flavored. (I’m such a basic B. 🤣)
