@the_most_happy I believe you were talking about induction at 39 weeks last week? I was medically induced at 37 weeks with my first pregnancy which was advise sure to possible IUGR. I arrived at L&D to sign a paper saying I was being induced by choice and I had the right to leave. I personally would push back after having my experience, but I would clarify with the Dr their reasons for an induction and do what you are most comfortable with. But no, they can't make you get induced.

Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: i guess a mango, lol
Upcoming appointments: anatomy scan next monday (the 12th)
How are you feeling?: I'm doing OK. No particular discomforts as far as pregnancy is concerned other than I'm sleeping pretty poorly and am therefore tired all the time.. I did have a horrible stomach bug about 2 weeks ago and I've been battling a cold for the past week.
Rants/Raves: I felt a little tiny bit of movement last week, I think, but not much since. I'm hoping to start feeling something consistent soon!
GTKY: What’s your favourite seasonal candy? hmm... If we are talking about Easter, my MIL gave me a bag of black liquorice jelly beans and some white chocolate covered almonds and those are fab! Yum! I need to stop eating so many sweets though...
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: August 15th, 21+3...but I'm measuring a week ahead (and have been from pretty much the beginning).
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: GREEN!
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: An endive, but technically a coconut.
Upcoming appointments: Telehealth appointment today.
How are you feeling?: Good! I feel like myself...finally! I still get gaggy from time to time, especially if I haven't eaten in a while. But my energy levels are up. I'm even going for a hike today.
Rants/Raves: DH and I bought three day tickets for Disneyland last year. We went for two days in January, but still had one day left on our pass when COVID hit. I just got an email yesterday that they're opening up ticket reservations for existing ticket holders on the 12th of April, and then for the general public (only Southern CA residents for the first little while) on the 15th. I am SO giddy to be able to go to D-Land. And to have priority registration. I have missed it so much, and am looking forward to experiencing it with only 25% capacity. I mean, I won't really be able to go on any rides, but I legit don't even care!
GTKY: What’s your favourite seasonal candy? Not a candy, but I love the cranberry bliss bars from Starbucks that they have in the Fall. I also love Starburst jelly beans. And the tootsie roll eggs.
@pickle-chips I'm also trying to up my walking after not moving much this winter. Definitely easier when it's nice out!
@emily1052 I just started Prilosec too, I'm hoping it helps! Tbh, even though I have a healthy diet in general I do tend towards foods with lots of spice and am dreading having to dial that back lol. Yay for feeling baby move more though!
@grogu my sleeping troubles are ramping up a bit too, I hope this doesn't persist all the way until the end! For me it's more insomnia than physical discomfort, though I'm sure one will segue right into the other lol.
@Kenneylynn3 yep that was me, thanks for sharing that experience! I think I will push back if I get to that point and truly show no signs of high BP or fetal distress... I do understand them wanting to not let it come to that if they can avoid it, but I can monitor closely at home and obviously will take action at the first sign of trouble. Was your induction at 37 weeks planned all along or a surprise?
@loloyoyo26 hope your shot went okay yesterday! My second one was a little rough but nothing unbearable.
@mrspant0809 bahaha, that's what the home office is for my guy!
@jarethinafrock ugh, sorry you've been dealing with so much sickness recently. One of the only upsides to the pandemic is I haven't gotten so much as a cold in the past year because I haven't gone anywhere (and don't have kids or anyone else bringing germs into the house), that's really unlucky for you!
@cyanope aww that's exciting about your Disney trip! I'm excited to go to my local theme park too. Even though I can't ride anything, it'll be nice just to walk around and soak in the atmosphere.
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: August 27/19 + 5
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Pink
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: A bowl of cereal? Whatever that means lol.
Upcoming appointments: AS soon.
How are you feeling?: The same- good, normal.
Rants/Raves: I have two bachelorette weekends coming up, which I'm both excited for (yay going places and seeing friends!) and trepidatious about (is it going to be any fun with everyone else drinking/smoking and me sober?). Always knew this would be a challenge of being the first one in my friend group to get pregnant, but it'll definitely be nice when some others catch up lol.
Questions: None right now (that I haven't already asked in the Questions thread at least, haha).
GTKY: As I've mentioned on here before, I'm not a sweets person normally but omg... I have been CRAZY for jellybeans this year. The Starburst ones, specifically. Can't get enough of them. I literally have some by the bed (which my dentist husband just loves, lololol).

Rants/Raves: my lovely MIL and her fiancé bought us a new infant car seat I know it’s a little early but I’m grateful for it and now that color is sold out on Targets website (probably due to the sale).
GTKY: What’s your favourite seasonal candy? I like the mini milk chocolate Cadbury eggs
