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

    15 weeks today! Baby is the size of an apple!

    2. How are you feeling? 
    I am feeling alright! I have had a couple of doozy headaches over the weekend. That caught me by surprise.

    3. Any appointments coming up? 
    We have the 3D gender scan next Thursday before the party on Saturday!

    4. Rants, raves, celebrations, questions? 
    I had an AWFUL dream over the weekend that I lost the baby. It was devastating and I woke up crying. Pregnancy dreams are no joke, y’all. It was so vivid and scary. 

    5. What are you looking forward to the most this pregnancy? The least?
    I can’t wait for the pregnancy kicks and all of the movement. That was my favorite thing with both kids! My DD made herself known during the Christmas service during prayer. That was an incredible feeling. It still gives me goosebumps when I think About it! 

    The least: to see if I will be on bedrest. Both of my babies tried to come early (and they tried a few times) and I had preeclampsia with DS. I’ve been taking the baby aspirin religiously to try and reduce the risk! 
  • 1. How many weeks along are you? How big is baby? 
    16 - Avocado
    2. How are you feeling? 
    Good. I get tired easily still at night and very winded at times. But other than that...don't really even feel pregnant.
    3. Any appointments coming up? 
    I had one yesterday. Just a quick checkup. Got to hear heartbeat and scheduled my ultrasound for November 21. 
    4. Rants, raves, celebrations, questions? 
    Nothing really. Just keep going back and forth on whether or not I'm going to find out the gender. It shouldn't be this hard of a decision. I have one month to decide!
    5. What are you looking forward to the most this pregnancy? The least?
    I think the biggest thing for me right now are the kicks and having an actual baby belly and not just a little baby belly that's pushing up all my guts!!! The least is probably just finding clothes that fit as I go further along in this. I am having the worst time finding maternity clothes and refuse to spend an arm and a leg on stuff I won't be wearing very long.

    I totally understand! I have been shopping the local Facebook garage sale boards and Kohl’s has some very reasonable prices on jeans and leggings. For me, it was only online, though, so that pissed me off! I have super long legs (35” inseam so it’s hard to find jeans that fit!
  • 1. How many weeks along are you? How big is baby? 
        16 - avocado or dill pickle!

    2. How are you feeling? 
         Usually good.  More tired than 1st tri.  I've been getting headaches and had bp issues...hopefully it's getting under control.

    3. Any appointments coming up? 
         Friday :)

    4. Rants, raves, celebrations, questions? 
         
    I've had a dream about 3 times so far (each time it's different, but the "theme" is the same) where I have my baby, but have no memory of it.   It's like I wake up one day and I have this baby.  I hate that feeling. I had this same type of dream the whole time during my first pregnancy.

    5. What are you looking forward to the most this pregnancy? The least?
          
    Feeling the baby!  I think MAYBE I felt a few tiny taps.  I can't wait until DS can feel it...he's been asking and it's so cute.  I know he'll be excited. And wearing my new maternity clothes now that my belly is getting bigger!

  • 1. How many weeks along are you? How big is baby? 
    15 weeks - an orange!

    2. How are you feeling? 
    Not pregnant, lol. The first tri was ROUGH with nausea and fatigue, but I’m finally starting to feel somewhat normal! My boobs are still tender and it doesn’t look like this heartburn is going anywhere, but other than my small bump, I feel like myself. Finally!

    3. Any appointments coming up? 
    Nope, had one at 13 weeks and don’t have another one til 17 weeks. The wait is hard!

    4. Rants, raves, celebrations, questions? 
    Rant: this heartburn is killing me. He’s going to come out with a full heading of hair at this point.
    Rave: finally starting to “show” versus just looking fat, haha!

    5. What are you looking forward to the most this pregnancy? The least?
    I’m really excited to feel him for the first time! Also my baby showers and definitely the week off before my maternity leave starts, though I’m not counting on being very productive, haha. I’m not looking forward to labor, but I just keep telling myself that after it’s all done, no matter how it happens, we get to meet our son!!! 
  • 1. How many weeks along are you? How big is baby? 16 avocado 

    2. How are you feeling? 
    Still not well in the mornings. My hip sends shooting pain up my back.

    3. Any appointments coming up? 
    I had one yesterday.
    4. Rants, raves, celebrations, questions? 
    My foot has been bothering me, so I asked my DH for a rub. He was terrible at it, but at least he did it. Then my 2yo DS came up and rubbed my foot. In the end my foot still hurt, but I loved my family l little bit more. 
    5. What are you looking forward to the most this pregnancy? The least?
    I set up my anatomy scan yesterday for the 22nd. So we are going to do a gender reveal with all my family the day after thanksgiving. 

    With my 1st I had steady but not consistent contractions for 3 days. I am hoping it's true that the second labor goes faster. So I am not looking forward to a long labor.

  • 1. How many weeks along are you? How big is baby? 14 weeks, a lemon or peach

    2. How are you feeling? Feeling good. Nausea has let up but I still gag really bad when I brush my teeth which is annoying. 

    3. Any appointments coming up? Had one this morning at 14w1d. Baby is growing wonderfully and all test results are great. Measuring at about 3.5 inches. I love seeing the baby!

    4. Rants, raves, celebrations, questions? nothing really

    5. What are you looking forward to the most this pregnancy? The least? I cannot wait to feel this baby start kicking. I feel like it's taking forever!

  • @mikkimikey I still think he Christmas service appearance of your baby is the cutest story.

    @all the vivid dreams are no joke.

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

    17 weeks! Baby is as big as a turnip :)

    2. How are you feeling? 

    My chest X-ray came back clear and so no pneumonia! hooray! The bronchitis is going away slowly, still coughing. But pregnancy wise, I feel great.

    3. Any appointments coming up? 

    We have another appointment with the midwife on Monday. I’ll be excited to hear the heartbeat again and see how my weight gain is progressing!

    4. Rants, raves, celebrations, questions? 

    I am finally starting to feel pregnant :) My uterus is now high enough that I can feel it when I press on my stomach, and I have a real mini-bump. Y’all I’m so excited. This morning I woke up and the bump was ALL on the left side of my abdomen. Like my right side was completely flat and my left side it was like you could grasp a football underneath the surface of my skin. Apparently the round ligaments are stretching out and preparing for growth upward… my husband and I were laughing hysterically. Felt like an alien baby. 

    Major celebration. I went from a few “popcorn popping” feeling movements every couple of days to feeling the baby move all day long. It feels like ants are crawling all over my belly - he/she must be SO ACTIVE in there. Can’t wait for the ultrasound in a month or so to see whether we have a girl or boy gymnast!

    5. What are you looking forward to the most this pregnancy? The least?

    I’m looking forward to learning something new about my body, this process, our baby, every week with my husband. He’s been so supportive and excited, and it’s really just such a miracle and gift I can’t get over it.

  • A little behind this week! Definitely have pregnancy brain! 

    1: 16 weeks! Avocado!

    2: Sick again! Seems like the whole house is sick then better then sick again! Otherwise just exhausted and trying to take care of myself and take it easy! I have been dropping and knocking over everything!! The struggle is real to keep dry pants all day!! Joys of motherhood! 

    3: OB on the 9th and Anatomy Scan on 16th!

    4: Super overwhelmed with everything I have to get done! Stressed, exhausted, and in need of help and support! It is so difficult keeping up with all your responsibilities while growing a baby!! 

    5: I am excited for the bond my DD will have with the new baby and having her talk and sing to her sibling as they grow inside! She is already so sweet with mommy's belly!
