Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: Kale. But like what? Haha
Upcoming appointments: dentist today! Have had some awolen gums so its good timing. Also bloodwork for iron and GD. They're just doing a blood test here so no orange drink for me! OB next week.
How are you feeling?: Pretty good. I think some of the illusive fire crotch started last night. Not excited. If it continues I'll call my PT.
Rants/Raves: Our covid numbers keep increasing. Think first wave in the states. We locked down pretty hard and weren't hit very badly, so our "herd immunity" is super low. I also overheard my boss talking about me the other day. I didn't hear anything bad, but like just don't talk about me. 🙄
GTKY: What celebrity would you like to meet for a cup of coffee? I don't really know... basic bitch in me says Ryan Reynolds or Taylor Swift.

Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: one app says butternut squash, the bump says kale. All I know is he is so strong... his kicks are crazy these days lol
-glucose test next Wednesday, and I am dreading it because sweets are the one thing that still make me nauseous 100% of the time. I am afraid the sugary drink might make me throw up. Also worried that me feeling sick after eating something sweet might mean I have GD... Anyone else experience this?
28 week ob appt May 19th (and my last monthly visit! I start ever other week after this appt). It’s starting to feel very real now and the nerves are def kicking in.
How are you feeling?: super tired allll the time. Allergies have been awful and I can’t take the extra strength sinus medicine I would normally take when my sinuses get this bad 😩 I’m getting anxious about baby’s arrival. The nerves are definitely setting in.
Rants/Raves: we are just about done baby’s nursery! I’m super excited about it because I couldn’t come up with a theme but somehow I was able to throw something together 😂
Questions: only the one I asked about about GD if anyone has any insight to whether or not my aversions to sweets may indicate GD/ if anyone has experienced similar. Just trying to prepare myself mentally for what may be to come lol
GTKY: What celebrity would you like to meet for a cup of coffee? Tim Tebow for sure. I was never a fan of him while he played football, but I love love LOVE what he stands for as an individual, and who he is as a husband and man of God and how he impacts the lives of everyone around him. I especially love what he does for those with special needs, and the efforts he puts into the fight agains human trafficking. He just has such a beautiful love for God and every single person in our world, it’s just very inspirational to me in a time when we are seeing so many bad things happening, and in a world where there’s so much hate. Please note that I do respect other people’s beliefs about God and I am in no way trying to push my personal beliefs on anyone
The brown spots are more eye pleasing to me than overgrown weeds and brambles! But yeah I'm hoping the seeds will take and we can get some nice grass growing over there.
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: Aug 10/25+6
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Blue!
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: Cauliflower.
Upcoming appointments: End of the month for monthly midwife appt and likely glucose test.
How are you feeling?: Feeling fine, with normal pregnancy aches and pains.
Rants/Raves: I miscounted how far along I would be and have been scheduling work things into the end of July. Since my last baby was induced due to pre-e at 37 and change, that was not a good idea. One particular event is something I really can't miss so I'm just going to try to hang in there as long as I can.
GTKY: What celebrity would you like to meet for a cup of coffee? If posthumous appearances are allowed, Anthony Bourdain or RBG. I'd also be fine with my girl Michelle Obama.
@ashsowers2020 I don't think that means you have GD. I had GD with my son and my daughter and didn't have an aversion to sweets at all!
Since I had GD with my last two, I'm hoping if I fail this time we can skip the three hour and just assume I have it. I don't know if that works with insurance though. Who knows..
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: C-Section scheduled for August 2nd - 25 +1 now
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Team Green
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: Acorn squash - whatever that is!
Upcoming appointments: 4 week check up on May 5th, and doing my glucose test on Monday the 10th
How are you feeling?: Awful. So nauseous the last few days. I'm okay before I eat, and then as soon as I do it's all over for the rest of the day.
Rants/Raves: MH keeps leaving the basement door unlocked. It's making me so mad. I've asked 400 times to make sure he locks it after he goes out or in. JUST LOCK IT
GTKY: What celebrity would you like to meet for a cup of coffee? Even though he's dead, I'd like to meet Benjamin Franklin. He's my great great great x4..... grandfather. I think that would be cool.
Rave: MH started and finished the flooring in our bedroom this weekend. It feels amazing to step out of bed onto a clean floor. 2 more bedrooms to go...hoping to get it done by the beginning of July.
@claireloSC, Yes! Yard work always feels therapeutic to me. I'd rather sweat outside than clean house any day.
ETA- if you still want to go epidural free, you should look into whether your hospital offer nitrous gas. I know some are offering that as a pain management option during labor.
and thank you for the advice about nitrous gas! I am trying my hardest to go epidural free this go around (although I will let them know I’m not opposed to it if the pain gets to be too much). But the nitrous gas may help me to accomplish that. I didn’t know there was an alternative to epidural for pain management.
@ashsowers2020 here you can also opt for intravenous drugs, but I have had friends who had bad experiences with them. During the "natural" labor class I took way back when, the nurse also said that she'd recommend an epi over intravenous drugs if we chose to use pain management.
@claireloSC, I hadn't thought about changing positions often. My other hesitation is that I felt better when I was able to walk and move while I was in labor, which may have helped speed things along and I know with the epi I'll be confined to the bed. Decisions, decisions.
