Team Boy/Girl/Surprise: SneakPeek says boy! I don't put all my eggs in that basket until the genetic bloodwork comes back.
Interesting baby fact / Baby is the size of: A blueberry
Upcoming appointments: First official OB visit (we've only had our dating US and quick followup) at the end of the month, and then a consult in April to scan so we can proceed with a cerclage for cervical insufficiency.
How are you feeling: So.Sick. Everything makes me sick. I feel like a slug.
Rants / Raves: It has been a nightmare dealing with my local MFM hospital trying to schedule the consult and appointment for the cerclage surgery. I have a history of second trimester losses, one of which was a direct result of one of the high-risk doctors brushing my and my OB's concerns about a short cervix under the rug, so I'm definitely feeling defensive and sensitive to having to explain myself over and over again as to why I need to schedule this procedure.
Questions: Just a shoutout to how incredibly strong everyone is who has to navigate being pregnant and working at the same time and/or having a kiddo at home and/or just existing. I'm definitely just surviving and not thriving at the moment.

Upcoming appointments: 3/29 first appt
How are you feeling: exhausted, always hungry but always kinda nauseous too.
Rants / Raves: I love my toddler so much, but being pregnant is already a lot. I wish I had his energy 😪 but I already feel bad because I'm feeling to tired to do everything we usually do. Playing on the floor with cars, taking him to the potty, bath time, helping him change... I'm trying to encourage him to follow directions to walk where I need him to go. He can walk and run, but he likes to run away from me around bedtime, and I'm used to just picking him up after he runs down the hall.
Questions: any advice from STM+, help being pregnant and parenting a very active toddler?
GTKY: What skill would you most like to learn? Hmm. I wish I knew how to do makeup. I feel so lost with match colors and all the techniques I see. Or maybe French braiding.
