How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately? The past few days I've felt great, pretty much no symptoms. This morning some nausea returned but nothing crazy. Now that we've seen the heartbeat I'm less anxious about the no symptoms thing. Still loving ALL the food.
Any appointments this week/coming up? Had one on Monday and it went well! Baby measured two days ahead. Still keeping the same due date although I'm having a c-section at 39 weeks so doesn't mean much.
Rants/Raves? Rave is for Thanksgiving being next week! So excited to spend time with family. We're also taking DD to see Daniel Tiger Live so that should be fun. Rant is I had to adult and pay bills this morning.
Questions? Are any of you here expecting a "push present" from your SO? I didn't know that was a thing last time I was pregnant.
GTKY: If you could tell your 16 year old self anything, what would it be? "You're not going to marry him, calm down."
What's your EDD?
Not sure at the moment, my US yesterday dated me behind but we'll see what Monday says. Based on LMP I should be due June 26th.
I'm currently sick and miserable. DH is doing a great job taking care of me though
Monday we go back for dating and do the long appointment. DH will be there this time I'm happy it will only be a couple days until I can hear and see little Bear.
Being sick blows but it's made this week fly by. Next week we'll be up north for Thanksgiving. Another short week!
Relax and have fun, don't worry about the future. You'll meet the man of your dreams and everything will work out just the way it should.
What's your EDD? 6/23
How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately? The nausea is still pretty relentless. I need to figure out a good unisom/b6 regiment because my Diclegis isn't covered by insurance.
Any appointments this week/coming up? Nope. My next one is 12/4 which is the first tri screening.
Rave - I think we're going to go get new bedroom furniture and a new sleeper couch for our front room today or tomorrow. Our one local furniture place is running a super good Black Friday deal, as well as 0% interest for like 5 years. I am so excited! Our bedroom, and the kitchen, are the last two rooms we need to "fix-up."
GTKY: If you could tell your 16 year old self anything, what would it be? "It is okay to not have a relationship with your mother. Everything will work out."
How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately? Feeling better. Nope.
Any appointments this week/coming up? Tuesday
Rants/Raves? Went out to breakfast this morning for my birthday, going hunting tomorrow with my dad for opening day, getting my hair cut at some point this weekend, and we should be going to dinner with friends... Hopefully it'll be a good weekend!
GTKY: If you could tell your 16 year old self anything, what would it be? It gets better...
It's technically 6/30 but realistically I'm now looking at the first or second week of June.
I still want all things cheesy, but I've noticed less and less craving of sweets, which is out of character for me as I have a crazy sweet tooth!
I have an u/s today and my next appointment is on the 29th.
Lush cosmetics lotion in the scent Sleepy is heavenly and calms my nerves better than valium ever did.
Does anyone else feel a little jealous of the ladies that are 11+ weeks on the board and inpatient for it to be your turn to be leaving the 1st tri?

What's your EDD?6/22
How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately?I think I freaked myself out a bit by googling too much. To date, I have had no nausea or morning sickness. And then I did a little research and saw that morning sickness can actually be a sign of a healthy pregnancy. Trying not to read too much into it as my doc said it's perfectly normal to not have nausea and my mom doesn't remember feeling sick with me at all... But your mind definitely plays tricks on you when your hormones are raging... Still craving cheeseburgers all the time. No real aversions
Any appointments this week/coming up?I am meeting with a new doctor, so now that appt is 11/21. Nervous, but happy to be changing to a doc that is affiliated with the hospital I'd prefer to use.
Rants/Raves?I'm gonna rant on myself. I've just been doing too much online reading and basically scared the crap out of myself over concerns of miscarriage. I think having the bleeding/spotting early on just made me feel insecure, so I googled to compensate and feel more knowledgeable. Sometimes knowledge is power, but sometimes it just makes you feel more overwhelmed.
Questions?Why is the first trimester so hard?
GTKY: If you could tell your 16 year old self anything, what would it be?DO NOT PLUCK YOUR EYEBROWS. THEY WILL NOT GROW BACK THE SAME EVER AGAIN. And one day, full brows will be trendy again.
@oneblessedmess DH and I joked about a push present with our first (like, isn't the baby the present?!). I wasn't really expecting anything but he ordered me a little bracelet from etsy with our son's name engraved on it. The smartest/sweetest part with that he gave it to me about a month before the due date (so not technically a push present) but he knew I needed a little encouragement cause I was feeling rough.
What's your EDD? 6/22 (there's a lot of us!)
How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately? Feeling surprisingly good this week. Craving all the carbs...this week I bought everything bagels and cream cheese and it was everything I dreamed it would be haha.
Any appointments this week/coming up?Had our first u/s on Wednesday. Reassuring to see the little gummy bear because I've been feeling so good and freaking myself out. First Dr appt not until 11/29.
Rants/Raves? Kind of both - my hubby is working swings for the next few weeks (2pm to 2 or 3am). At first it was kinda fun, having him here during the day for a couple hours with DS , then having some "me time" at night (aka crafting and watching the Great British Baking Show...I know, wild). But after a couple days, he's wiped out, I'm trying and failing to keep a 1yo quiet until he gets up and I just want him home to cuddle at night. But it's temporary and I'm just being a baby. Not to sound cliche, but single parents and military spouses (or others whose partners travel a lot) are amazing.
GTKY: If you could tell your 16 year old self anything, what would it be? Do not stress about every.little.thing...You will get through it all.
@cheerfuld8 I could have written that one word for word! I think it to myself every morning as I fill in my poor over tweezed brows. Lol
What's your EDD? 6/27 (my birthday!)
How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately? Feeling okay-ish, but the fatigue is super bad. I have a toddler to keep up with, and see clients several days a week out of my house, so the exhaustion of it all plus pregnancy is brutal lately. Feeling waves of nausea everyday, but still haven't thrown up (yay!) Cravings: vegetarian Indian, Thai, Vietnamese and Mexican food. And allll the pasta and cheese in the world. Aversions: meat, and cooking itself isn't appealing lately, which is weird.
Any appointments this week/coming up? Saw the nurse and had 1st ultrasound this last week, baby measuring right along and heartbeat going strong!
Rants/Raves? Just. So. Tired.
GTKY: If you could tell your 16 year old self anything, what would it be? It's allllll going to be ok.
How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately? Eh, ok! I've got acid reflux first thing in the morning, but only real vomit a couple times so far. Super super tired all the time, thankfully my sweet husband is doing EVERYTHING. Aversions are most meats (so strange, I'm usually a big carnivore), and cheese (wtf, cheese is the best!!).
Any appointments this week/coming up? We had an ultrasound last Friday where we measured exactly 7 weeks (at a fertility clinic because I had IUI), and an intake at the obgyn yesterday (Friday the 17th). Next ones not til mid December.
Rants/Raves? My husband is amazing. He makes me whatever food I want and made chocolate cake today. We also have a puppy and he gets up with him every day and lets me sleep.
Questions? Anyone else have low blood pressure? Mines generally lower than the 90/60 cut lately and it's freaking me out a bit.
GTKY: If you could tell your 16 year old self anything, what would it be? oh my god, settle down. Go to a damn yoga class.
6/26, although I’d love to have a July 1 baby
I’ve been feeling great today! I have been soooooo nauseous, and went a few days without being able to hold anything down. Ugh. At my first meet-and-greet OB office appt yesterday the Nurse Practioner prescribed Zofran. I know there’s controversy out there over this, but ultimately my goal is to keep nutrition and hydration down for baby. So I’m feeling a thousand times better today. Now I’m craving, and eating and keeping down all the comfort foods I’m craving: cheesy mashed potatoes, Wendy’s JBCs, spaghettios.
Next Tuesday first US!
My rant is the confusion among all the options for moms. I researched so many conflicting articles about Zofran. But ultimately I want to make the best decision for me and my baby, so it’s tough wading through choices and still having to feel guilty no matter what you choose.
What are the chances my first baby bean comes a few days late to deliver on July 1st?
Life is not gonna happen like you think it should, but don’t get caught up in that, there’s still so much to love and enjoy
What's your EDD? 6/27/18 - will be scheduled for a c-section 1 week prior due to health issues. I also anticipate going early since that is what happened last time. I will be sure to have my bags packed and nursery ready by June 1st.
How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately? Some days I don't feel pregnant which really messes with my head while other days I struggle to stay awake and eat a normal meal. No vomiting but nausea/hunger feeling that can last all day. On bad days I eat bland and multiple small meals which seems to help. Food aversions are meats and cheeses. Carbs, fruits and eggs seem to work the best right now.
Any appointments this week/coming up? Nope. Had my 8 week ultrasound last Wednesday. Baby is measuring perfect with a heartbeat of 179. Next appointment is genetics on 12/1.
Rants/Raves? I'm so tired I fall asleep at 8pm to then wake at 1am having to pee. I then struggle to fall back asleep for an hour or two. I swear this has gone on since I found out I was pregnant.
GTKY: If you could tell your 16 year old self anything, what would it be? He is not worth it. Move on, you deserve better and will find someone who will never want to let you go!
How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately? I'm feeling alright. Really tired, and I've started getting little bouts of nausea. Nothing severe, but not fun. Whenever I feel off my impulse is to stuff my face (probably a learned behavior from too many hangovers in my 20s), which I need to get under control.
Any appointments this week/coming up? Not until early December.
Rants/Raves? We went to a friendsgiving celebration last evening and had a great time. We told our hosts privately about the pregnancy at the outset (as my turning down wine would otherwise be a big, awkward to-do) and they were sweet but followed our lead in being a little muted about the news after we stressed how early it was. And that would have all been fine, except we got to dinner and did our 'go around the circle and give thanks' routine, and another couple took the opportunity to announce that they're expecting their first in May! I'm thrilled for them and extra glad we kept our announcement semi-private so they had their chance to shine, but it was still unexpectedly hard to watch all that joy and support get directed toward someone else and keep quiet on the sideline. We tell my brother our news on Thanksgiving, though, so we'll get our moment
Questions? We got test results back from our first appointment and everything checked out, except that I got an abnormal result on my thyroid test (indicator of hypothyroidism). My OB seems completely unalarmed and asked only that I go back in for a repeat test ahead of my next regularly-scheduled appointment, but I still worry a bit. An issue for anyone else?
GTKY: If you could tell your 16 year old self anything, what would it be? Be nice to the nice boys. I came to my senses and ended up with one, but I feel ashamed to this day about some great guys I treated really poorly over the years.
I just did a whole post and it got half deleted (grrr) so now it’s abbreviated.
What's your EDD? 6/28
How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately? Craving almonds and hummus, averse to red meat or any food after 7 pm.
Any appointments this week/coming up? Next Monday - can’t wait! Making DH come to this one.
Rants/Raves? I’m in love with my new Joybird couch. It’s so comfortable and well made. Now time to save for baby (didn’t get the BFP until after I bought the couch).
Questions? Anyone else super stressed at work? I try not to let it follow me home but the deadlines are killing me.
GTKY: If you could tell your 16 year old self anything, what would it be? Relax ... and don’t hook up with a guy just because he looks like John Cusack.
What's your EDD? 6/26
How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately? Pretty good besides tired & my back hurting
Any appointments this week/coming up? One on 12/14 for 3 month FU and 12/19 for high risk doctor
Rants/Raves? RANT:My husband has suddenly gotten extra annoying
RAVE: i love fried rice, fried fish w/ hot sauce, cold cut from subway, cran-mango juice
Love yourself just the way you are! You don’t have to dumb yourself down to fit in
