  • What's your EDD6/22

     

    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? :D I didn't know that was a thing last time I was pregnant.

  • 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.

    How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately?

     I'm currently sick and miserable. DH is doing a great job taking care of me though 

    Any appointments this week/coming up?

     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.

    Rants/Raves?

     Being sick blows but it's made this week fly by. Next week we'll be up north for Thanksgiving. Another short week!

    Questions?

     

    GTKY: If you could tell your 16 year old self anything, what would it be?

     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.

  • I hope it is okay i join you lovely ladies!  My EDD was pushed back at my ultrasound Monday (which i expected) 

    @oneblessedmess I did not expect a "push present," however he did buy me a ring with DD birth stone later on for Christmas or something.  I figure, if he at least goes out and gets me food, we good haha
    @galactickates I hope you feel better soon!

    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.

    Rants/Raves?

    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."

  • What's your EDD?

     It's technically 6/30 but realistically I'm now looking at the first or second week of June.

    How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately?

     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!

    Any appointments this week/coming up?

     I have an u/s today and my next appointment is on the 29th.

    Rants/Raves?

     Lush cosmetics lotion in the scent Sleepy is heavenly and calms my nerves better than valium ever did. 

    Questions?

     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?

  • @fitzandgiggles - I'm definitely a little jealous that we're not as close to being in 2nd tri as others, but, on the flip side, I'm happy knowing that so many of the lovely ladies here are hitting that milestone, and I know that they'll celebrate for us like we'll celebrate for them. :smile:

  • @fitzandgiggles - yes definitely jealous of the 11+ ladies. Now that we're dating a week behind I feel like LO is going to stay the size of a raspberry forever. 

    @izza2 I feel the same way.  I'm really happy for them.  I just wish I was apart of it.  

    What helps me is realizing I'm still ahead of July!

    Hey Ladies! 

    EDD 6/18

    I'm a ftm, and was wondering if any of you have been arguing more with your husbands? I have. I feel like he drives me nuts and I only want him to keep quiet and snuggle. Lol.

    I have been having horrible nausea at night. Usually my mornings are pretty good. Also, I haven't been able to sleep flat since week 8. Does anyone else have this problem?

    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 EDD6/22 (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. 

    Questions?


    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. 

     

    Questions?

     

    GTKY: If you could tell your 16 year old self anything, what would it be? It's allllll going to be ok.

  • @sunshineandwhiskey - did you end up getting the new Furniture?

    @oneblessedmess - on the push presents note - I might mention it to DH but.... he just bought me a new car the day after we got our BFP. He says the two aren't connected but..... ok... By the time I deliver though it will be right after my birthday and right before our first wedding anniversary.  I would like a piece of jewelry with our kiddos birth stone,  or even with all three of our birth stones.  Are you going to ask for something or have him surprise you?

  • What's your EDD? 6/29

     

    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.

  • What's your EDD?

    6/26, although I’d love to have a July 1 baby 

    How are you feeling? Any specific cravings/aversions lately?

    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. 

    Any appointments this week/coming up?

    Next Tuesday first US!  

    Rants/Raves?

    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.  

    Questions?

    What are the chances my first baby bean comes a few days late to deliver on July 1st? 

    GTKY: If you could tell your 16 year old self anything, what would it be?

    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 :)

  • @fitzandgiggles
    I am totally with you on the all things cheesy comment. Sounds so weird but McDonalds sausage breakfast burritos have been the thing I could just about eat any time any day right now because of the cheese sauce.  I wish I were craving salads and healthy foods instead! 

    EDD is June 26th 

    Feeling exhausted and generally nauseous in the afternoons.  No real getting sick but I just don't feel great.  I have also been sleeping constantly. Last night we went to a comedy show that started at 8 and by 9:30 I was falling asleep in my seat. 

    My next appointment is December 1st.  I can't wait to hear Baby B's heartbeat! I had an US done at 6 weeks but they could just see it at that point. It will make it much more real to hear it!

    Can't wait for Thanksgiving week! We decided we're telling family on Thanksgiving and the day after which will be so much fun.  My MIL made a comment to DH the other day that she didn't think we'd ever have kids at this rate so she should be pretty surprised :) 

    Has anyone dealt with babies and jealous pets? My puppy was super upset when I just held my friends baby so I'm worried about how she'll adjust when Baby B arrives. 

    My 16 year old self wouldn't have listened anyways.  Lol. I was pretty stubborn - and still am. 
    izza2
  • 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. 

     Questions

     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!

  • Have thoroughly enjoyed everyone's GTKYs this week. We were all exactly the same, huh? And yet so convinced our angst was ours alone. 

    @oneblessedmess So glad for the successful doctor's visit! No, I'm not expecting a push present. Just the undying gratitude of my husband for the rest of our lives. He doesn't get to buy his way out of the guilt. ;)
    @sunshineandwhiskey So fun that you're almost done with the house! And the rooms you have left are going to be fun.
    @izza2 Happy belated birthday! Hope the hunting trip was a success. Is this deer season that just opened for you or something else?
    @fitzandgiggles YES. Jealous both of the relief they must feel becoming lower risk and as they get to find out boy/girl (even though I still don't know that we'll find out at all). Our turn is coming, though!

    What's your EDD? 6/29

    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.

  • @lovetakesworkman, I’m sure there is a good chance. My due date is actually July 1 but RCS will be in early to mid June 
    @ashleymar1e, that is pretty low. Had your doctor said anything? 

    1. July 1st but RCS will be sometime in early to mid June
    2. Honestly, I’m feeling like complete crap. I can barely keep anything down. I know I’m super dehydrated but can’t do anything about it. Plus I have a UTI so currently being treated for that. I have a class on Weds so I’m hoping they will go over nausea meds and I can be put on something. 2 water bottles a day and at least half coming back up is not going to cut it.
    3. Appts- I have my Ob orientation class this Wednesday. Not really sure what it’s all about but hopefully will be informative since we are overseas and I’m sure the process here is different. 
    4. Rants/Raves: does anyone feel so hungry that they are nauseous and then as soon as you eat, you are even more nauseous? That’s where I’m at right now. I’m trying to stay positive and tell myself that symptoms are a good thing but going on 3 weeks of nausea/vomiting is miserable. On the other side, DH is an absolute saint and has seriously picked up all the slack in the house and taken care of so much. 
    GTKY: I would tell myself to speak up and not be so scared of everything.

  • @profmcgonagall I've only seen a medical assistant thus far, and my reading in the office was normal (100/65 or so). I did ask her about it, and she seemed unconcerned and said low BP is normal with pregnancy. I suppose I should start tracking it with some regularity and call my OB if it's not getting better. I hope you feel better soon dear, sending you some steel stomach vibes!!

    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.

  • @glitterfingers Glad you love the couch! I'm convinced furniture purchases are triggers for big life events. I pulled the trigger and bought my dream dining room table (I know that sounds weird, but it was) two weeks before my husband proposed. I was so pissed, immediately switched gears to saving for the wedding and didn't buy any dining room chairs until two years later ;)

H saw a huge one on Friday, and we had plans so we didn't go hunting over the weekend. We're planning on going together Thanksgiving day, I'll go with my dad on Friday, and then probably going together again on Sunday.
