Re: Weekly Check in 11/14

  • @iiirene lol at the in laws.  Mine are great, but also a bit much.  Mil and I had some serious tension when our first was born, but she has laid off and gotten much better.  She has the best intentions but just the way she goes about things is not exactly helpful sometimes.  I hope you do enjoy yourself while in FL.  Glad your son is loving the beach!

  • Rant: my husband just got laid off…
  • @iiirene oh no, I’m so sorry! What kind of field is he in, do you think it’ll be hard for him to find a new job? That’s just the worst timing too. Hugs!
  • @etnyah wow that's amazing regarding your son!  How fun to see his sense of humor even more now!!!  Sorry about needing more Zofran 😞 

    @iiirene oh no!!!  I'm so sorry.  What stress!  So uneccesary during pregnancy  😢
  • @iiirene oh no, I'm so sorry! Hope it doesn't put too much of a damper on your trip

    @scaredunprepared you guys just can't catch a break with these illnesses!

    @etnyah that is so exciting about your son! 
  • @iiirene lol wait until may...yep that sounds about right!  

    @etnyah aw how cute and funny!!!  I actually had a little boy i worked with who was nonverbal for a long time, who actually used to do something similar with animal sounds and laugh when he did the wrong one!  It was so awesome seeing his personality shine through when he was being silly like that!!!  He also started talking one day, when he was about 6!  It was so cool!
  • @scaredunprepared I'm sorry for the extra worry. I used to work in pediatric cardiology, and have sat in on 100s of fetal echos. Even if there is something wrong it may not need immediate attention/may resolve itself. The fetal heart is kind of crazy how it functions in utero vs after baby is born. I'm glad the dr was reassuring. Praying for good news and peace for you!
  • @scaredunprepared I’m sorry you didn’t get the AS experience you wanted! I’m glad they sound proactive at least, hopefully it’s nothing and it’ll resolve on its own. Definitely doesn’t help when you’re already worrying though. 
  • @scaredunprepared aww I'm sorry there's additional worry at the moment. I hope everything turns out ok and LO's heart finds a way to right itself. 💛
  • @v_flowers that’s so nice of your husband! I hope the massage eases some of your discomfort
  • @v_flowers aww, kudos to your H! I hope the massage helps!

    I’ve also felt some BH contractions recently. I didn’t notice them at all last pregnancy, but yeah, they can be pretty uncomfortable when you do notice them.
  • @iiirene Thanks! I hope so too. I’m sending all the good vibes your way. I hope your husband’s interview goes well! 

    @etnyah I totally agree with you about BH. Such a weird sensation. It does make me feel better to know that they are harmless and fairly common. 

    EDD/Weeks+Days: 17 weeks 

    Baby is the size of: pomegranate 

    Team blue/pink/green: green 

    Upcoming Appointments: Check up next Wednesday. I can’t schedule my anatomy scan until that appointment which is stressing me out. 

    How are you feeling?: Okay! I have thrown up in a week which has felt amazing! 

    Rants/Raves: I’m a teacher and this time of year just gets so busy and crazy. The kids are driving me a little nuts- or maybe it’s the hormones 🤷🏼‍♀️

    @scaredunprepared yay for the party going well and boo for the extra stress from the anatomy scan. I hope everything works out OK!

    @iiirene sorry to hear about your husband’s job; hope he finds an even better one ASAP (and maybe even starts in January so he has down time for the honey do baby prep list and can enjoy the holidays while still receiving severance payments 😉)

    EDD/Weeks+Days: 4/12; 19 weeks tomorrow 
    Baby is the size of: 🤷‍♀️
    Team blue/pink/green: we know 😊
    Upcoming Appointments: Anatomy scan is on Thursday! 
    How are you feeling?: Pretty good other than an urgent visit for an eye issue that’s caused a terrible headache and inability to wear my contacts. Apparently my entire eye is inflamed (and red) and I’m starting steroid drops tonight. 
    Rants/Raves: I am anxious for the anatomy scan on Thursday. I had a nightmare about it last night and woke up nearly in tears. Thank goodness it was a dream. Still praying for good results on Thursday. 🙏 

  • FTM/STM/TTM+: stm

    EDD/Weeks+Days: 19 weeks 1 day, April 12th

    Baby is the size of: no idea lol

    Team blue/pink/green: I'm thinking it may be a boy but I don't feel as certain this time. We will find out at our anatomy scan

    Upcoming Appointments: AS on December 3 (the tech is out of the office next week so I'll be like 21 weeks and a few days) and then another prenatal visit on December 8th

    How are you feeling?: I've been really good actually. I feel like this pregnancy has been so much easier than my first, but somehow thay gives me more anxiety lol. 

    Rants/Raves: my rant is way too much to type but basically sometimes family sucks lol. Toxic people just aren't worth the stress. My rave is that I'm finally caught up so much with work I've actually been able to work shorter days and even half days and spend more time with my daughter!
  • @firsttimemamafromboston I don't know why people think it's ok to make comments about a pregnant women's body (whether they are joking/mean well or not!). One of my pet peeves!!
  • @firsttimemamafromboston argh that is so incredibly rude! Pretty simple test: Just ask yourself "Would I say this to/about someone who wasn't pregnant?". If the answer is no, don't say it to someone who is pregnant either! And then getting upset when you stand up for yourself is the icing on the cake. I'm sorry you have to deal with that.
  • @acleverusername That's all great news! And the extra anatomy scan will probably be nice. I had extra scans last pregnancy, and I liked seeing the baby further along. 
  • @acleverusername sounds like a great conversation! 
  • @acleverusername so glad you got some answers and info! 
  • @etnyah thank you, I totally agree! It’s hard enough to deal with pregnancy, no one needs to make us feel worse with rude, unnecessary comments! 
  • @nsk489 it’s so strange that EVERYONE seems to feel entitled to comment on our bodies! Only one person has touched my belly so far. Thankfully most comments are positive/ neutral, but even friends saying “wow, your bump is getting bigger!” could make some people feel bad! People need to err on the side of caution, especially when dealing with people who are hormonal!
  • @firsttimemamafromboston Last pregnancy, there were concerns  for IUGR for my son. People kept telling me how small I looked. I know they meant it as a "compliment", but it just reminded me that things might not be going well.
