Due date check-in- forth week of May 5/20-5/26 (1/29)

It's been awhile since we had one!

How far along are you? When is your due date? What's the size of your LO?

What's going on this week? How are you feeling, any rants or raves?

Any upcoming appointments?

Any big updates since our last thread? Big purchases?  Nursery got painted? Name got picked?

  • How far along are you? When is your due date? What's the size of your LO?
    24w1d, May 20th
    So excited we hit viability yesterday. Now every week I can breath a little easier.

    What's going on this week? How are you feeling, any rants or raves?
    Nothing too much this week. DD kneed me in the stomach last night and I had a bit of a panic. I immediately took out our heartbeat monitor for peace of mind. I know she's basically too small to do any damage, but still a little scary.

    Any upcoming appointments?
    I think I have a checkup next week and we'll probably schedule my glucose test for the week after that.

    Any big updates since our last thread? Big purchases?  Nursery got painted? Name got picked?
    We finally decided on the nursery theme and bought the crib. This next weekend is a little crazy, but hopefully the weekend after that we can start to clean out the spare room and decide on wall colors.

  • @suchaglencoco I'm sorry for the panic!  My sister-in-law said that basically my darling niece would kick her in the tummy all the time while she was pregnant with #3 but there is so much cushion around them, the doctors told her not to worry!

    How far along are you? When is your due date? What's the size of your LO?

    We are at 24 weeks today!  Technically, we are due 5/21 but they are expecting a 5/7 date for us since it's twins!  

    What's going on this week? How are you feeling, any rants or raves?

    Eh, it's a silly rant.  Mommy friends of mine that feel the need to question items on our registry.  "Did you know you have 2 pack n plays?"  Yup, we sure do!  We are having twins and they can't always share.  Or "you don't need 2 diaper bags".  Well, I decided we do.  Again, eventually one kiddo will go with one parent or family member and the other kiddo will stay home or go somewhere else.  But ultimately, I want to say, "How does my registry affect you?"

    Any upcoming appointments?

    We have an appointment on Friday so we will see our little ones again!

    Any big updates since our last thread? Big purchases?  Nursery got painted? Name got picked?

    We actually scheduled the kiddos' baptisms last week.  On Saturday, I got letters in the mail confirming the dates and it had the kids' full names.  I basically squealed when I saw it!  It seemed so real.

  • Sucha I get how that's scary! Glad everything's alright! It's so exciting to be getting the nursery ready :) and thanks for starting this! The board has been deathly quiet. 

    Nhardler I can only imagine how excited you are for Friday!! Are you willing to share your names for the little ones? 

    How far along are you? When is your due date? What's the size of your LO? 23w3d! Due May 25th but measuring for May 20th! The fruit sizes get to me because some comparisons seem smaller than earlier weeks? 

    What's going on this week? How are you feeling, any rants or raves? Rant: my tailbone hurts :( I go to a chiropractor but still get back pain daily. Also, increased cm! Crazy how much and how often liners need to get changed! Heartburn is making its return and I was feeling out of breath today. 

    Rave: baby kicks! 

    Any upcoming appointments? Next scan Feb 15th and will do GD test  

    Any big updates since our last thread? Big purchases?  Nursery got painted? Name got picked? We are moving next month so we're only buying big purchases after that. In the meantime I made my first big shop for baby necessities this past Saturday. We don't have much space where we live but I was getting anxious to start since there's so much to get. After infertility and a loss I found myself unexpectedly scared walking towards the till... what if I buy all this stuff and we don't get to take baby home? I had to talk around a bit and breathe. It was hard but I went through with it! Reaching viability soon will hopefully help me to believe we'll take baba home.

  • @suchaglencoco I'm happy I'm not the only one who looks forward to viability! My husband things I'm so weird because I always celebrate hitting that point in pregnancy, but it really is a point when I start to breathe easier. 

    How far along are you? When is your due date? What's the size of your LO?

    24+0 today, due 5/21. Baby is the size of an Atlantic puffin

    What's going on this week? How are you feeling, any rants or raves?

    This week is the 2nd week of my schedule change at work, and I am here 2 hours later on Mondays now, which really sucks. But I still get off fairly early, so there's that.

    Any upcoming appointments?

    Next Monday I have a routine check up

    Any big updates since our last thread? Big purchases?  Nursery got painted? Name got picked?

    This is my first 4th week check in, so I can't say it's new, but still, we finally picked a middle name! Naming our second boy has not been as easy as naming the first, and I really hated not having a name. It doesn't quite feel as real until they have a name. 

  • How far along are you? When is your due date? What's the size of your LO?

    - DD of 5/23 so 23w6d, size of a grapefruit

    What's going on this week? How are you feeling, any rants or raves?

    - Ready to not be pregnant anymore. Lol I don’t hate it but I don’t love it. I was a little more into it with my first but still nowhere near how most women are about it. Other rant of the week is the 2yo tantrums...oh boy! The wrong color, the wrong shape, you looked at him, etc. And lastly, wtf happened to people’s manners?!

    Any upcoming appointments?

    - 24w doc appt on Thurs.

    Any big updates since our last thread? Big purchases?  Nursery got painted? Name got picked?

    - I’m still hating all boy names (my son’s name was the one and only that I loved). But I think we have agreed to a name finally, though I still won’t commit 100%...poor unborn baby boy, sorry. Lol My husband made me do a gender reveal this time around so I’m making him keep the baby’s (almost official) name a secret from EVERYONE until birth which I know is bothering him. Lol

  • @babydreams88 I feel for you on the tailbone pain and heartburn. I’m in the same boat though I swear this time around it showed up sooner than with my first. Uhg!
  • @suchaglencoco thank you for starting this! 

    How far along are you? When is your due date? What's the size of your LO? 24 weeks today.  5/22.  Garden Eggplant

    What's going on this week? How are you feeling, any rants or raves? Busy back at work, also working on potty training with DS.  We started on the 20th and he is actually doing great! He has a few accidents every now and again, but I know that's going to happen.  

    Any upcoming appointments? GD test tomorrow morning. 

    Any big updates since our last thread? Big purchases?  Nursery got painted? Name got picked? We bought the crib this weekend, and it is being delivered today, we still need to fix our ceilings in the bedrooms upstairs before we paint, so we still have lots to do to prepare for baby sister.  We decided on a name, and we think it will stick... Taylor Joyce.  

    nhardler
  • @babydreams88 You are not alone!  I know how terrifying it is to make the purchase.  It seems like it might be jinxing it all.  We have held back on so many big steps in preparation for the kiddos because we were nervous.  Then we finally said, "We are going to embrace this!  Because WHEN everything turns out perfectly, we will wish we had enjoyed this time a little more."  It's not always been easy and there are still times when I can feel myself holding back, but I'm trying!

    I never see one for the following week in May so I'm jumping on here lol 23 weeks today 5/29. A grapefruit or an eggplant depending on the app.

    What's going on this week? How are you feeling, any rants or raves?

    Battling a cold still. Just tired and my lack of patience for everyone is really shining through! Rant-I'm tired of everyone asking what I'm having. I kinda don't ever want to say anything to further annoy people lol I wanted to take a cute pic but my son and I have been sick and I have no desire to do anything.

    Any upcoming appointments?

    2/6

    Any big updates since our last thread? Big purchases?  Nursery got painted? Name got picked?

    No major purchases or nursery but we do have a name-Aiden Luke but will be known as Baby A because after a few arguments with my mother on previous name choices I've learned to just keep it to myself!

  • Congrats on reaching viability to some of you ladies!! I can't wait to join you on Friday:) 

    @duck_duck_goose what's your boy's name?? 

    @hcrish poor hubby  :D mine doesn't want to commit to a name either until seeing baby, though I wish I could commit to something sooner so that it feels more real! Sorry about the toddler tantrums and that you have to commiserate with me on the sucky symptoms:( 

    @bwow615 Yay for DS! Let us know how your GD test goes! Just love baby girl's name!! Beautiful:) 

    @nhardler I'm sorry you feel the same way... I'm trying my best too! 

    Welcome @desguti023! Hope you feel better soon, being sick is the pits:( really love your name choice too! :) 

    AFM also excited as a friend offered to do a baby shower for me after thinking I wouldn't have one! It's not that popular in South Africa so I wasn't exiecting one but it'll be fun!

  • How far along are you? When is your due date? What's the size of your LO?

    23+5 due 5/26! Baby girl is the size of a bunch of grapes @babydreams88 I read somewhere that the sizes are sometimes based on weight and sometimes based on length so it can seem so different week to week

    What's going on this week? How are you feeling, any rants or raves?

    I officially can't cross my legs without getting uncomfortable anymore.  And I keep forgetting can't really bend down the way I used to so that has been uncomfortable too.  

    Any upcoming appointments?

    Regular check up on 2/9

    Any big updates since our last thread? Big purchases?  Nursery got painted? Name got picked?

    We've done nothing at all!  We're hoping to move out of this house before the baby comes so I'm not doing any planning until we know what our situation will be.

    * 24 weeks on the nose. Due 5/24! Size of a ... cantaloupe? I think that’s what the app said, anyway.

    * I’m feeling okay. I can definitely tell I’m hitting the back end of trimester two. I’m starting to have some hip pain in the morning and finding a comfortable sleep position is hard. Also my breasts have gotten huge And it’s starting to cause some significant shoulder pain and occasional numbness in my left arm. So that’s fun.

    *Had my 24 week appointment yesterday. I’m measuring two weeks ahead, which I think I did with my girls too. 28 week glucose test is scheduled (...yaaay) 

    * I’ve been MIA for like a month! But I can’t think of any updates. Still no name  :#  but we have her car seat and cosleeper so that’s exciting! I’ve also been busy buying way too many clothes  :#

    Ahhhh who are thesec people who are analyzing your registry lol. Twins means double the babies.  Which means double the stuff.  Seems logical to me!
    bwow615nhardler

  • How far along are you? When is your due date? What's the size of your LO? 24+5. 5/21, week veggie if a csection. Um i think they said cantaloupe lol

    What's going on this week? How are you feeling, any rants or raves? exhausted. Not from the pregnancy per se, except for the 2am wake up calls from baby rolls. But work is crazy,  i have no time for everything,  and I'm anxious to just get the nursery done andDH is just oblivious lol

    Any upcoming appointments? had appt yesterday.  Baby is good.  Glucose test next week.  And i have to schedule an appt with my cardiologist to check in to see if i need medication for SVT and palpitations this pregnancy. They have been nuts!:(. and I'm prob going to schedule our 3d US soon too. 

    Any big updates since our last thread? Big purchases?  Nursery got painted? Name got picked? still no name.  Still no nursery.  I've slowly been purchasing stuff while i am out and its on a pile.  Have i mentioned my DH is oblivious and a procrastinator. :s and its driving me nuts 

    bwow615nhardler
  • @angleyes989 We must have the same DH!  :smile:  Maybe yours will feel the need to "nest" soon?
  • @fraufarbissina Thamks for that explanation! Makes more sense. Now every week I'll be wondering whether the fruit is for size or weight  :D

    We are also moving in the next 2 months and to be honest I'm getting so antsy as I really want to start nesting! I'm afraid I'll be too big and tired near the end! Eeek. I couldn't sleep last night thinking about everything that needs to be done. 

    @pandakov yup the hip pain and sleeping :( sucks. Yay for an awesome appointment and baby clothes!! I couldn't help buy two cute hooded bath towels for my boy ❤️

    @angeleyes those palpitations sound nasty :( hope it's nothing serious. Also, I don't think my hubby is nearly as worried about what needs to be done either.... they seem so ignorant.

  • @babydreams88 I went and got a prenatal massage yesterday it helped soooo much with my shoulders and hips. I’m thinking I might make this a regular thing! 
    sandbar517
  • @pandakov that sounds heavenly I'm so glad it helped you! I would love to go often for a massage but with the costs of baby and regular chiropractor visits and tax season here I don't think I could justify the additional expense :( hard to get time off too as I work Monday to Saturday.
