How are you feeling?: Right now? WIPED. My SIL got married this weekend and I spent three days running around getting everything prepped. Between set up, decorating, rehearsal, and coordinating on the day of, my poor, tired, pregnant body is not happy with me. At one point, DH forced me to sit down and drink a bottle of water. He gets so frustrated with me when I push myself so hard, but I’ve made up for it today. Literally haven’t left the couch, and took two solid naps! 😂
Rants/Raves: Rant: See above. Rave: We’re going to Disneyland on Thursday!
GTKY: what’s your favourite TV show from childhood? Hmmmm...anything on Nickelodeon. Doug and Rugrats are standing out from early childhood. Pre-teen years would have been Alex Mack and Clarissa Explains it All.
@mrspants0809 91 days! Double digits! 😱 so exciting.
@litzi-2 what are you doing for your kitchen reno?
@emily1052 GL with the glucose test tomorrow! I am also drawing a blank on my favourite tv show. I’m running out of GTKY question brain power so I just look ideas up on Google and then regret my choice.
@cyanope have an amazing time at Disney!
@pickle-chips we're just opening up the wall from the dining room to the kitchen, taking down most of the upper cabinets, tiling, new shelves. replacing lower cabinet doors and painting everything. Trying to stay calm about it and know that things just never go smoothly, regardless of how much planning you do.
@pickle-chips oh no! Does he still nap? Sounds like you might need one when he does if possible.
@mrspants0809 sorry your anxiety is so high. Is there a chance you can get different meds? Hope therapy helps.
@emily1052 hope your appt goes smoothly!
@cyanope sounds exhausting! So glad you were able to relax after. Have a great time at Disney!

Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: romaine

Rants/Raves: See above
GTKY: what’s your favourite TV show from childhood? Legends of the Hidden Temple, no question.
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: aug 19/ 26+4?
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: 💕💕💕
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: baby weighs 2 lbs! (Is that all 😒)
Upcoming appointments: had one today after almost 3 months! Things look mostly good; OB thinks my upper left quandrant pain is just gas etc because the digestive tract gets squished and so on... so that was good news. The not so good news is that my BP was through the roof 150/100 🤦🏽♀️ He wants to start me on low dose hypertension meds, but I think it was a combination of doing the US taxes last night, plus stressful few days of dealing with student theses and I also walked briskly for 10 min to my appointment... have my GT test on Wed (ugh @grogu I feel you; not looking forward to it). I see him again next Monday to monitor my BP...
How are you feeling?: tired/stressed. Work is so damn busy now that it’s the end of the semester.
Rants/Raves: DS turns 5 this friday! He’s so excited, it’s very cute.
Questions: anybody has/had GH? I did have it with DS but it was much later in 3rd tri and then they just decided to induce me... I guess the benefits of the meds will outweigh the risks, but I also don’t know if I should wait to start them...
GTKY: what’s your favourite TV show from childhood? Tom and Jerry when I was young; also Captain Planet! And pokemon during my tween years 😅
team: Green! And I’m happy to see how many greens are in this group!
questions? If I failed the 1 hour glucose test in my first pregnancy, will I probably fail it this time??
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: 25+ 2
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: pink
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: I don’t even know anymore
Upcoming appointments: June 7. 3D is scheduled for 6/17!
How are you feeling?: pretty well. Bloated most days, especially this evening.
Rants/Raves: I graduated last weekend with my doctorate and had a small party. I went to a friends graduation out of town over the weekend and stayed in a crappy hotel. Now my body is all sore. We had fun but it wasn’t the most restful weekend!
GTKY: what’s your favourite TV show from childhood? Pippy Longstocking! I bought my daughter the book and she loved it. We also watched the 1980s movie a few months ago.
Team Green/Pink/Blue: Blue
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: a baseball glove and has a distinct hair color already?
Upcoming Appointments: Dentist next Monday, Chiropractor on Wednesday.
How are you feeling?: Still feeling good, and trying to take advantage of the energy. I do feel like the more I slowly add on, the more energy I’ve had. I’m kind of half expecting to eventually hit a wall, but it definitely helps me handle my rant below better.
Rants/Raves: I’m stressing about space. SIL has been looking for a house for awhile now while living with us, and it doesn’t seem like she’s trying too hard. Meanwhile, we can’t do anything for a permanent nursery until she’s moved, and buying stuff is problematic since there is no room to get it organized in. DD will move to her room and DS will eventually be in DD’s old room.
GTKY: What was your favorite tv show from childhood?
I guess the Smurf’s? I remember running around the playground all the time with my BFF singing their theme song? Then I really got into Little House on the Prairie since it was on one of the handful of channels we could get with just an antenna. I even read all the books, lol.
@cyanope, have a blast at Disney!!
@emily1052, I hope your glucose screening goes well tomorrow! @bourbonbiscuits, same to you for Thursday!
@obsessedwithoranges, you won’t necessarily automatically fail this time. I can’t remember who exactly now, but someone here I think had failed in a previous pregnancy or pregnancies, but not this one.
@loloyoyo26 that is indeed stresssful. I hope your husband can drop some strong hints to her about space/baby etc. Or maybe you can send her some solid leads of you have the time. Good luck!
@litzi-2, awesome on the kitchen reno! We're planning on tackling the same thing before baby comes. Along with new flooring throughout the house and a few other minor fixes. I keep telling DH he better get on it, because I want EVERYTHING perfect before baby arrives!
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: August 30/25 + 1
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Team Pink
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: A Head Of Cauliflower
Upcoming appointments: I've got a regular monthly check-up and an additional growth scan (due to my history of high blood pressure) in a few weeks. Will also be doing the GD test at that one, what a fun day lol.
How are you feeling?: Definitely noticing small discomforts starting to creep in, like how it takes extra effort to sit up after lying down, but nothing major. My SI pain has definitely dissipated a lot over the past week with just some mild stretching, which is a big relief! Just riding this wave of feeling pretty great as long as I possibly can.
Rants/Raves: My rave is that our babymoon trip to Turks and Caicos was so amazing... my rant is that I'm back to reality now, haha.
Questions: None this week!
GTKY: I watched a lot of Nickelodeon as a kid, so probably something that played a lot on there... maybe Hey Arnold? Haha.
@Kenneylynn3 I remember us talking a few weeks ago about potentially going against our doctors' advice and refusing induction if it doesn't seem like the babies are in distress... I've definitely been trying to adopt the mindset of not worrying about it until I need to, it sucks to have hanging over you though!
@mrspants0809 I have a countdown to my due date (which I am very stubbornly refusing to adjust to the date by which they say they'll want to induce me, haha) on my phone, I'm so excited to hit 100 days this week! Must be so cool to be down into double digits.
@litzi-2 that's so exciting about your kitchen reno! We're getting new countertops and an induction cooktop next month- not as big a project as yours, but I'm so pumped. Hope everything goes smoothly for you!
@emily1052 I also think it's really cool that our babies can hear us now... kind of want to start talking to mine more but I feel a little absurd, haha.
@cyanope what kind of flooring are you putting in, and is your H doing it all himself? If so, kudos to him... my H installed hardwood in exactly one room in our house last year, and he did a great job with it but it quickly became apparent the time/money trade-off was not worth it for us, haha. We ended up hiring professionals to redo our whole upstairs this past spring, and I love how it turned out but it definitely drove me a little crazy to have to be on someone else's schedule.
@grogu oh man, I'm getting scared for the GD test now! I used to be really squeamish about blood draws- I've gotten over that a good bit in recent years, but I saw someone in another thread mention that if you end up having to do the three hour test that involves four separate draws... that is such a nightmare to me. Glad you got yours over with at least!
@BourbonBiscuits I never saw that show but my H loved it as a kid, the first present I ever got him was a t-shirt with the logo for the red team (Red Jaguars?).
@moerae sorry about your BP! I'm on two (pregnancy-safe) meds due to unexplained high blood pressure prior to pregnancy that thankfully has been extremely well-controlled so far... I had to go through several different dosages and combinations to actually get mine under control originally, so from that point of view it might not be a bad idea to start something ASAP, in case it takes time to find something that works for you.
@obsessedwithoranges was your weekend funny-nutty or stressful-nutty? Hoping it was the former!
@emmylou78 that is so amazing, congratulations! What an accomplishment, especially while pregnant. Glad you got to celebrate/see friends this weekend, even if you're dragging now because of it.
@loloyoyo26 you've just reminded me that I really need to get in for a dental cleaning... which you'd think I'd be more on top of, since my husband is a dentist, haha. I always excitedly tell him when I see an article about the importance of oral hygiene in pregnancy, and he's always like "Yeah... which is why it's not great that you're so overdue for a checkup."
@mrspants0809 ahhh double digits! I think I am around 100 days out from my due date. Sh!t is getting real!
@emily1052 good luck with the glucose test! I just did my 1 hr and it was horrible. I can't imagine the 3 hr.
@cyanope naps are a necessity in my house now. I am exhausted all the time... I just got my bloodwork back and my ferritan is at 7, so that explains it
@the_most_happy I'm glad you had fun on your trip! I am so jealous. Everything is still locked down here I just don't enjoy the test at all. I managed to make it home before getting sick and *barely* passed. If she recommends the 3 hr test I will likely just get a glucose monitor and do a curve at home.I am not going through that again.
@emmylou78 congrats!!! Being pregnant while in school is bloody exhausting. Way to go!
@grogu, I was taking daily naps during the 1st trimester, but was able to phase them out. I have a feeling they will be re-implemented soon, though. That third trimester drag is starting already!
@BourbonBiscuits, I can't believe I didn't think about Legends. Definitely in the top 5 for me!
we need before and after pics!
