Re: Group 3 (April 16-22) Check in Week of 8/29


    EDD / Weeks + Days: April 16 estimated

    Baby is the size of a: blueberry

    Team blue/pink/green: finding out!

    Upcoming Appointments: This Thursday is my first ultrasound and I am so anxious!!! Praying everything is good but the not knowing is getting to me.

    How are you feeling?: Bleh, I was nauseous last week a little but not bad, but slowly all foods have started to be revolting to me. I am struggling to find anything to eat and I know it is beyond frustrating for myself and my husband because I just want nothing but I know I have to eat. Also stressing as I don’t really have nausea anymore, but my boobs are still incredibly sore and larger and so hoping all is still good!

    Rants/Raves: Rave! My husband has been the most kind and helpful person as I have felt so awful, he keeps making things trying to help and is being so generous. This would be so much worse without him.

    Questions: Does nausea come and go sometimes? I’m trying not to panic but so nervous for the ultrasound this week to see if everything is okay.

    GTKY: Are you ready for fall or still holding on to the last bits of summer? So ready for fall, this hot girl summer has been waaaay too hot and I can’t wait to start bundling up!
  • @cortsull0724 nausea definitely comes in waves for me! I had really bad nausea around the end of week 5 and then nothing the start of week 6. Currently also minimal nausea at almost 9 weeks after puking a lot last week. Had a US at 7 weeks and baby looked good, so it’s not an indicator of loss, although it definitely makes you more on edge!

  • @etnyah thanks so much, gives me a little less anxiety for the next few days haha! The not knowing is awful!
  • FTM/STM/TTM+: 3
    EDD / Weeks + Days: 7W, 1D
    Baby is the size of a: blueberry
    Team blue/pink/green: green?
    Upcoming Appointments: 8 week ultrasound and then discharge (🤞) from fertility doctor!
    How are you feeling?: Mostly fine, just occasional nausea and tired every afternoon. With #1, I would take afternoon naps then eat late dinner with my husband. #1 and #2 would not tolerate that now.
    Rants/Raves: Baby Shark is consistently measuring 1 or 2 days behind, which is freaking me out! Heart rate was 122 yesterday, 7W exactly, and no one else is verbalizing concerns. Both my previous pregnancies measured on target/ahead and were 9lb 10/9oz, so I don't know what to do with small babies. I am already worried about the month between my next two appointments, not having any more data. 
    GTKY: Are you ready for fall or still holding on to the last bits of summer? Love fall the season, but don't want to go back to school yet. 9th graders come in tomorrow. 👎👎👎
  • I had my worst symptoms at week 6. The nausea and stomach pain was crazy, nonstop for 12 hours, but I started eating ten really small meals a day and it helped so much :)

    Today just suddenly so tired. Thought I was going to fall asleep while walking my dog after work 🤪

    I wish I had more energy to connect with the baby. Trying to mentally connect and get in the zone but can’t seem to get the mental energy to do it.

    Side note: best investment so far is a sleep mask/ice pack I got on Amazon for cheap. Whenever I feel super hot, it calms me and makes me feel better overall.
