How far along are you?:
How are you feeling?:
GTKY: What is the worst gift you have received?
How far along are you?: 26+2
Upcoming appointments: nope
How are you feeling?: pretty good. Did a lot of walking yesterday and definitely felt that. I'm back to falling asleep on the couch most nights while watching TV so that's awesome-ly annoying.
Rants/Raves: Rave- DS had his 1st day of school today. I'm so anxious to get home and see him and hear all about it!! Rant- I have a conspiracy theory cousin who is driving me INSANE with her anti covid posts. Today's is about the woman who had her parenting time revoked due to not getting the vax. Her comment was basically "I told you so" and I'm all 🙄🙄 sure there's a bigger story that's not being shared but whatever....
GTKY: What is the worst gift you have received? DH once got me a papermache/piniata monkey in our early days of dating. No reason for the gift. I don't like monkeys. He for some reason thought I'd like it. I didn't pretend and it hurt his feelings but like, come on man, I have butterflies everywhere and you get me a monkey 🤔
How far along are you?: 26 weeks today
Upcoming appointments: @ 28 weeks
How are you feeling?: Rough physically. I’m so uncomfortable already and little things are becoming difficult. Ugh. I also feel huge, and to top it off my grandmother keeps asking me if I’ve “gained a lot of weight.” 😑
Rants/Raves: Comments about weight gain, ugh why do people have to do that?!? Side note, we’re the beach for a couple of days and it’s DD’s first time going. She doesn’t love it, haha. Kind of glad this is a short trip because of that and covid. At least we get a few days off.
Questions: Anyone else just feel terrible?!?
GTKY: What is the worst gift you have received? It wasn’t a gift, but on my birthday one year we had to put our cat down unexpectedly when she became deathly ill in a matter of days. It was terrible.
How far along are you?: 24w2d
Upcoming appointments: nothing until 9/27
How are you feeling?: Same - tired, sciatic pain, lots of braxton hicks
Rants/Raves: I am SO over this heat. I hate hot weather not pregnant. It's extra bad pregnant and it's been highs of 90-100+ for weeks now. I am so so ready for fall weather and everything that goes along with fall (sweatshirts, college football, closer to meeting baby...) Also rant - at my 23 week appointment last week I mentioned to my ob that I had GD with both boys (they weren't planning on doing my test until 28 weeks which I thought was very late with my history). She was like you did? We should have done it already then. Yep, that's why I brought it up.... frustrating that I feel like things fall between the cracks because the office is way too busy. She said I could take a test then (It was almost 5pm, I'd waited an hour for a 5 min appointment already) or check my sugars for 3 days and if I had two high ones we'd just call it GD. I opted to test my sugars because I was pretty sure I'd have it again and of course I do. I have PCOS, had it with both my boys, and I'm a little overweight. It was pretty much guaranteed. I'm hoping it will be diet controlled again and not too terrible.
GTKY: What is the worst gift you have received? Hmm I don't get completely terrible gifts typically but my MIL usually gets me little things that I will never use (tacky holiday dish towels come to mind). With DH we pretty much just buy what we want through the year and don't exchange much for gifts otherwise.
How far along are you?: Today is 25+6. Each week feels like such a milestone...
Upcoming appointments: Nothing for two more weeks! its a long wait it feels like. But then after that I will go at 30, 32, 33, 34, etc...
How are you feeling?: I also feel alot bigger this time. Overall feel pretty good, except for heartburn and swollen calves if I sit too much at work
Rants/Raves: hmm we are working on the nursery and that makes me happy. its a good distraction from all the scary stuff. I still have good and bad moments. I was at a wedding this weekend (masked of course haha), and one of the wives of one of the friends works as a nurse in the Cardio ICU at the childrens hospital we are going too! So we had a good talk, but it definitely made me think about what the first 1-2 months will be like. I just have waves of sadness that baby girl, and us, have to go through all of this. Hard to imagine how I will hold it all together and not just cry every day when she is here when we are in the hospital, but I am sure I will find the strength to be brave for her.
Questions: For STM+, are you doing a registry and what is going on it?? We are, but just for the completion discount. I'm finding we really dont need much, but do want that 20% off for the crib, mattress, etc.
GTKY: What is the worst gift you have received? Hmm i can't think of much! We don't do a ton of gifts, much more into experiences!
@JamieH2000 I have an amazon registry, but it only has a few things on it like a new monitor and another Hatch sound machine. We already have a crib and furniture and all the big baby stuff so we don't really need much.
How far along are you?: 23 weeks
Upcoming appointments: in 2 weeks
How are you feeling?: I have a cold. Boo. I got covid tested just in case, but luckily it was negative.
Rants/Raves: DD did great with her ear tubes and adenoid surgery yesterday. Although her ENT did say that it probably won't be her last ear surgery based on her ear anatomy. Poor thing.
GTKY: What is the worst gift you have received? I honestly don't know. DH is great at giving gifts even if he can't wait until birthdays/holidays to give them.
How far along are you?: 27 weeks
Upcoming appointments: next Wednesday
How are you feeling?: Good. Still have some high anxiety and I've started to do kick counts. Nothing else really going on besides eating all the cupcakes and peanut butter cups and eating my anxiety. I feel like this baby will be 10 pounds.
Rants/Raves: rant... our bathroom renos are still not started and our air conditioning is not in yet. Hopefully this coming Tuesday. Gingers crossed.
GTKY: What is the worst gift you have received? Well one year DH didn't get me anything for Christmas do probably that. Let's just say I don't think he will let that happen again.
How far along are you?: 23+1
Upcoming appointments: Sept 9
How are you feeling?: Overwhelmed and angry at work. Back in N95s and PPE (not fun not pregnant). Starting to admit COVID recovered and the ages are scary young.
Rants/Raves: This baby is much more active than my first so it’s fun to feel the kicks.
Questions: How did potty training go for those who’ve done it? Wish us luck this weekend!
GTKY: What is the worst gift you have received? My grandma is the queen of awful gifts. She got my dad a blooming onion kit one year. I don’t remember specifically but everything she gets me has lots of sequins and sparkles. Not my style.
How far along are you?: 26 weeks 3 days
Upcoming appointments: Glucose test next week 😑🤞🏼
How are you feeling?: Physically, decent. Emotionally, drained.
Rants/Raves: Wellll ranting. Where do I start? (Please don't feel obligated to read, legitimately just venting!) My son started school Wednesday in person. His Dad called me Wednesday morning to let me know 2 of his coworkers tested positive and he was showing symptoms and getting tested. Long story short, he tested positive and my son was with him Tuesday night. It's a mess. My son is over there, not showing symptoms but because I told him if he came back here he'd have to avoid us for a few days until we know he's fine, he said no. So that basically puts me at not seeing him for probably 3 weeks, if not longer, and on top of that, out of school for the same amount of time, being his first week of middle school. I'm heartbroken and have been an absolute mess for the last 2 days about it. Today was better, he got tested and was negative so it doesn't change much quarantine wise, but at least peace of mind. My Mom ended up having 2 surgeries on her brain for the newly discovered tumor. She's home and doing well considering but I had high hopes when my aunt stopped to visit Wednesday and said she was totally herself, totally coherent and back to normal. I stopped today, and she most definitely was not. Very confused, lots of repeating herself. Just not what I was looking forward to. Emotionally draining week is putting it fricken lightly. I'm hoping for a good weekend, get my kind off things and freaking recharge!
Questions: When is life gunna cut me some slack here?! 🤦🏼♀️
GTKY: What is the worst gift you have received? Not the worst but my mother in law is really good at if we give her ideas or a list for Christmas, that's usually what she buys. This year for my birthday, I told my husband to tell her about this HidrateSpark water bottle I wanted so I could track my water intake. She ended up getting me a manicure and massage gift certificate, which don't get me wrong is wonderful! But I had my hopes set so high on this water bottle. 🤣🤦🏼♀️ I ended up buying it anyways so I guess I made out with a better deal.
