  • 1. How many weeks are you? How big is baby?

    7 weeks, blueberry

    2. How have you been feeling?

    Ok, definitely better than my pregnancy with DD. Nausea is intermittent. Hoping that I can keep it at bay when I start work next week.

    3. Any appointments coming up? 

    Not until 9/18

    4. Rants, raves, questions?

    Got to see baby last week and he/she is measuring a bit ahead. DD always did, but came late so I'm taking my EDD with a grain of salt. I do have to start thinking of maternity leave (I'm a teacher, we need a sub). Would you work until you went into labor or work until your EDD? The week I am due begins two weeks of our state standardized testing. 

    5. GTKY: what's your hidden talent?

    I don't really have one? Seriously, nothing I can think of.

  • 1. How many weeks are you? How big is baby? 

    5 weeks, appleseed 


    2. How have you been feeling?

    okay, besides a cold I'm getting over

    3. Any appointments coming up? 

    Not for a while. My OB doesn't do appointments until 8 weeks

    4. Rants, raves, questions?

    nothing comes to mind right now. 

    5. GTKY: what's your hidden talent?

    I make fairly decent art but I'm not patient enough to do it more. So I put it to use as gifts to friends/family and what not, but otherwise don't put my skills to use. I sometimes dream of makin an etsy shop, but then self doubt sets in.

  • @toorahloorah with DD I had complications and left last minute with no notice at 37 weeks. With DS I had no complications, but I left at 39 weeks. I worked in retail and was so swollen I couldn't put my shoes on. My boss had okayed me to wear flip flops, but I was just too uncomfortable (I can't remember the medical term, but my hits had fallen apart and I was in a brace) and honestly, pretty useless. 
    I think having a plan set in stone, and leaving on your EDD, especially so close to testing, will be less stressful on you and the school. Vs planning stuff last minute when labor starts.

  • 1. How many weeks are you? How big is baby?

    Mostly just exhausted. I've been sleeping a TON! No morning sickness yet *knocks on wood*

  • 1. How many weeks are you? How big is baby?

    7 weeks, blueberry

    2. How have you been feeling?

    more nauseated then I had been.

    3. Any appointments coming up?

    4. Rants, raves, questions?

    I was hoping to get a few more weeks with my normal jeans closed with a hair tie, but it looks like that will not happen.

    I am a pretty decent hand quilter.

  • 1. How many weeks are you? How big is baby? 
    4+6 and according to Glow, a red lentil... super tiny!
    I forgot to add it in my intro but my EDD is April 23.

    2. How have you been feeling?

    Pretty decent. Intermittent nausea, dull cramping, and what I think is super mild RLP. Also, holy elevated HR. Mildly concerned that I may be tachycardic so monitoring closely on my own.

    3. Any appointments coming up? 

    First appt at 7 weeks-ish on September 8th and again at 10ish weeks Sept 26.

    4. Rants, raves, questions?

    Nothing really... just super pleased with how mild my nausea has been. My SIL had hyperemesis with her first and I'm terrified to say the least.

    How early are you telling your boss?? I feel like I need to now because I work in healthcare and can't be near certain diagnoses, but if the issue doesn't come up, I'd like to wait at least until I hear a heartbeat... 


    5. GTKY: what's your hidden talent?

    Hmmm... I have no idea. I have OCD-like tendencies for organization and cleanliness so that may be a talent?? And I think I have a bit of a photographic memory.

  • 1. How many weeks are you? How big is baby? 
    6 weeks - sweet pea
    2. How have you been feeling?

    pretty normal mostly anxiety over the early stage and trying to keep it a secret  

    3. Any appointments coming up? 
    Meet with maternity nurse 9/18 then decide on an ob to get me through December when my doc comes back from maternity leave. 
    4. Rants, raves, questions?
    I'm trying to figure out nutrition balance that works for me. I lost 90 pounds since having ds and I desperately don't want to get that big again. 
    5. GTKY: what's your hidden talent?

    I swear pregnancy brain is kicking in already and it's losing the remote or keys!!

  • 1) 7 weeks and baby is a blueberry

    2) I'm feeling sickly. I never had m/s w my girls and this baby is kicking my butt. Today is my first truly exhausted day which i am thankful for (but also sooooo tired haha)

    3) Tuesday the 29th

    4) like @riversdoctor (you go girl!) i lost a nice bit of weight after i had my second. I'm scared of unhealthy weight gain bc i can only stomach carbs at the moment. I'm also petrified that having a newborn won't allow me to get back into shape. I had some ppd after dd2 and I'm scared of all of this making it worse this time. I need to take a deep breath and cut myself some slack.

    5) umm...being awesome? Lol i don't know.

    7w 1d // blueberry

    2. How have you been feeling?

    Nauseated, exhausted and super bloated

    3. Any appointments coming up? 
    In about 2 weeks!  <3 

    4. Rants, raves, questions?

    I really wish my husband could be pregnant for a day. Seriously. Mama needs to some rest and TLC! And why do the doctors prescribe us B6 for nausea when it NEVER works?! 

    Question for third time mamas: When did you start showing with your second??


    5. GTKY: what's your hidden talent?

    Finding good parking spots! I think I inherited it from my mother! No joke.

  • 1. How many weeks are you? How big is baby? 5w4d; chocolate chip

    2. How have you been feeling? Super tired, I need to pee constantly, my boobs hurt (worse at night), slightly nauseous. But overall not terrible.

    3. Any appointments coming up? Yes! My first scan is this Thursday, at 6w2d. I'm so nervous but so excited. 

    4. Rants, raves, questions? I have taken a million tests to make sure I'm still pregnant. It all feels so surreal; after years of trying and so much work to get here, it's hard to believe I'm actually pregnant. I can't wait to see the heartbeat and see my bump grow.

    5. GTKY: what's your hidden talent? I am great at my job, my marriage and my closest friendships, and not much else ;)

  • 1. How many weeks are you? How big is baby? 
    8 weeks! 


    2. How have you been feeling?

    Nausea isn't super bad, but enough to make food not appealing and I have to force myself to eat. For some reason I've really been worrying about mc with this one so I'm ready to hear baby's heartbeat to help calm my nerves. 

    3. Any appointments coming up? 
    On Tuesday! But, it's more of a consult, see if I like the midwife then if we do decide to go with her I think we make our first appointment that day. 


    4. Rants, raves, questions?
    These cramps are driving me batty. I know theyre normal and I had then with my first, just so much more parinoid this go around. 


    5. GTKY: what's your hidden talent?

    I can sew? Idk if it's hidden, but people are always surprised when they found out I sewed my own baby slings.

  • 1. How many weeks are you? How big is baby? 
    6 weeks!! 


    2. How have you been feeling?

    Today I feel great. Just a little heartburn and gas. I've had a tiny bit of nausea and I've been so exhausted. Figured I was tired from traveling solo with both kids. Until I finally decided to test.  

    3. Any appointments coming up? 
    I neee to call my ob soon and schedule something.  


    4. Rants, raves, questions?
    I can't believe I'm actually pregnant. I'm really hoping the baby sticks and everything works out. I don't want to spend the whole pregnancy anxious like I did with my first one. 


    5. GTKY: what's your hidden talent? 

    Idk

  • Sorry im posting a day late, I forgot to yesterday... I'm still tentatively going by when I got my bfp/two weeks from when we dtd.

    1. How many weeks are you? How big is baby? 5 weeks, size of an apple seed!

    2. How have you been feeling? Probably my worst "symptom" is anxiety over something going wrong... but besides that, kind of run of the mill symptoms, but no morning sickness yet! Crappy sleep is making me a bit spacey lol

    3. Any appointments coming up? Sept 7th for a initial visit... maybe

    4. Rants, raves, questions? I put maybe above because I'm debating on switching my provider. I think I jumped the gun... it's kind of a long story, but, before, I had a midwife through the hospital. This time, (I moved or I would have gone back) I called an ob/gyn who I wasn't that crazy about from a previous experience while we were ttc, (I also called a midwife, but their hours were wonky so I was nervous about making it work), and now I'm kind of regretting that decision. I hope to speak with the midwife today on the phone and see if they'd be a better fit. I don't know why but this sort of thing makes me feel bad, like I'm firing someone lol...

    5. GTKY: what's your hidden talent? Hmm... I don't know if people like my coworkers know I love to cook and bake? It doesn't come up that often I suppose. My husband loves to tell people about how many cookbooks I have (ive actually weeded them out this past year!), so overall its not that secret.


  • @shouse11 my abs were shot after i peed on a stick.  :p seriously though, I'm 7w2d and showing. It's been noticeable to me and dh since 5w. And i thought i popped early w dd2!

  • 1. How many weeks are you? How big is baby? 
    8 weeks - raspberry (I spaced and forgot to update yesterday)

    2. How have you been feeling?

    Pretty shitty for the most part. Nausea is there most of the time, sometimes mild and sometimes awful. Heartburn/indigestion, headaches, mild cramping here and there. Super exhausted in general and I toss and turn most of the night. Come onnnnn 2nd tri!

    3. Any appointments coming up? 
    First appointment is FINALLY tomorrow. This is a new office for me since my GYN does not do OB, so she referred me. They have you meet with the NP for the first appt, and no u/s until 10-13w. Praying they do the heartbeat Doppler because I'm not sure how much longer I can wait to know this baby is really actually in there. 


    4. Rants, raves, questions?
    Suggestions for good maternity bras? I'm busting out and kind of over the whole underwire thing. 


    5. GTKY: what's your hidden talent?

    I got nothin'. This is one of those questions that would give me heart palpitations in a real life icebreaker thing in a class or at work because I'd be stressed about trying to come up with something!! I'm always the first to find spelling or grammatical errors on wedding invitations, printed company literature, signage, etc because they drive me insane - does that count?

  • @frenchiekinplusone not a maternity bra, but a nursing bra that doesn't have underwire and comes in sizes like S/M/L is the bravado nursing bra. I have been wearing it and sports bras since I found out.

  • 1. How many weeks are you? How big is baby? 6 Weeks/a Ladybug

    2. How have you been feeling? Like crap, a physical and emotional mess. Tired, headaches, slightly nauseous, nipples kill.  Zero motivation.  Walking around like a zombie. 

    3. Any appointments coming up? Had bloodwork done on Friday bc I called and asked for it.  Wanted to see if my levels were ok since I'd been spotting (brown) and doc wanted to make sure I wasn't RH negative.  Everything came back great.  Have my first US on Sept 5. 

    4. Rants, raves, questions? Can I just crawl up into a ball and hibernate? I dont want to be around people.  Everybody irritates me lol.  I'm not handling this as well as I thought I would.  Ive been eating like crap lately and really need to stop.  Want to workout but need to find something low impact.  Dr. said nothing strenuous right now. I just feel like a sick, emotional sloth haha. 

    Another rant, when I initially found out I was pg, my sister was staying at my house and I HAD to tell her.  This is my first child and my mom and I are really close.  Before I even had the chance and my moment to tell my mom, I get a text from her asking if I was pregnant.  :s  My sister swears it was an innocent conversation and she didnt say I was, but the fact is, something she said made my mom think I was and it completely ruined my moment.  I'm frustrated with that, but I can get over things with time.  Husband on the other hand cant, and he saw my facial expression when I found out my mom knew.  Now he's in full protection mode and wants nothing to do with my mom and sister. Added stress!

  • 1. How many weeks are you? How big is baby? 

    5 weeks, size of a peppercorn, lentil, you know, little food things.

    2. How have you been feeling?

    Tired. I also have some pulling feelings in my abdomen when I get up too fast. That uterus is starting to make itself known.

    3. Any appointments coming up? 

    If I could get my stupid doctor's office to pick up the phone!

    5. GTKY: what's your hidden talent?

    I'm a DM for D&D. :D

    6 weeks. Ladybug

    2. How have you been feeling?

    I am off and on tired and off and on nauseous. I'm afraid I'm going to randomly gag in front of my boss and she will suspect.

    3. Any appointments coming up? 

    Next Tuesday the 29th. They were concerned about my low progesterone so I guess they want to do intake and ultrasound in one appointment.

    4. Rants, raves, questions

    Im going to be a FTM and I'm so scared of losing the baby since we have been trying for a year and a half. My doctor told me not to get my hopes up. So I'm trying to not be excited but it's kind of hard. 

    5. GTKY: what's your hidden talent?

    hmmm. Nothing I can think of
