How far along are you? How big is baby?
How are you feeling this week? Any new symptoms?
GTKY: What kind of person do you hope your LO will grow up to be?
29+3 (that feels like a lot!); Baby should be 2.5-3lb, since the u/s last week said she was 2lb 10oz
Feeling not bad, although yesterday my back was really bothering me. A good night's sleep seemed to help. Also, I think my legs are starting to retain water - nothing crazy, but I can see imprints of my boots all over, which isn't normal.. It may be time to invest in some compression stockings..
I think I felt the baby flip yesterday! (sorry if you read this in the quickening thread). It felt like an earthquake in my belly. Later in the day, I felt hiccups down low, which I assume means she is head down now.
Above all, I hope she is kind The world needs more kindness. I hope she is strong and independent and knows to stand up to her beliefs, but at the same time is willing to listen and understand others, even if she doesn't agree with them.
29+5, around 3 lbs.
I feel you @ab_canada I am also starting to see more impressions in my legs from shoes or crossing them. Honestly, the world is great as long as I am regular. The bigger baby gets, the less room I have (obviously) to hold all the poop. Also, I prefer to eat 3 meals and 2 snacks a day, so I am now being forced to eat smaller meals and more often because after 1.5 bowls of chili last night I couldn't move I was so uncomfortable. It's so ironic to be getting so big, yet my stomach space feels small.
I constantly go back and forth between wanting the next ~10 weeks to go fast & then not wanting it to come at all. I don't know if I'm ready for all the changes, but will I ever be?
I want him/her to know the love of God & Jesus. To be kind & compassionate, yet stand up for themselves & what they believe in.
29 weeks 3 days; baby is probably around 3 lbs. Won't get an actual approx. weight/height until growth scan at the end of October.
Sleeping seems to be a little better- I've had a couple of decent 5-hour stretches each of the last 2 nights. Hopefully that will keep up. Just feeling worn down at this point.
DH and I have this plan to get rid of our (loads of) credit card debt. He worked on it all weekend, following the advice of Dave Ramsey, and went over everything with me on Sunday. I was really super impressed with him b/c he rarely takes initiative himself. He is so excited about our plan which made me really excited! If we stick to it, we should be debt free by the end of 2020 (excepting my student loan), which will be amazing!
I hope he is independent, loving, and passionate!
How far along are you? How big is baby? 29 + 2
How are you feeling this week? Any new symptoms? Just so very uncomfortable. I feel like there is no room left. I'm short with a short torso, and ugh. Other than that and peeing 4x a night, I guess I'm good lol
Rants/Raves/Questions/Dear Diary? I mentioned yesterday that I'm going to get a cleaning lady, and I contacted the one my SIL uses, and she agreed to start soon! I'm so very excited.
GTKY: What kind of person do you hope your LO will grow up to be? Well rounded, information seeker, kind, not self-conscious.
@temmetime although I don't want a premie, I am so ready. I mean the baby's room isn't ready, at all, it is still an office, and I have no clothes or diapers. But I am so very over pregnancy.
@mag1cbeli3ver yay for getting out of debt!
@ab_canada I've noticed my feet are beginning to swell. But it's supposed to get chillier so hopefully that goes away a little
@activebaby I feel you on the finances. I started this job in December so I don't have any time saved up. We put aside our tax return for the sole purpose of paying for maternity leave. But it will suck when I have to pay for my health insurance retroactively when I get back on payroll
29+1! An acorn squash, says TB.
Ummmmmm..... good question. Symptoms, I'm fine. But everything else, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. Like I'm kind of floating by at work yet I have an ever-growing listing of things I want/need to be working on but I'm not feeling super motivated. I am in full-on nesting mode - all I want to do is read, plan and organize all things baby.
Rant: I feel so silly saying this but my GD education class was a blow to my ego this morning, haha. I wish the nurse could've just shown me how to use the monitor and let me go. I was trying hard not to take her seemingly patronizing tone to heart because I am hormonal and I know she must deal with a lot of mamas who just don't know.
Rave: On the bright side, she walked through the monitors with each of us and my blood sugar was well within where it needed to be.
I was looking at my registry yesterday, and the dresser and the tandem stroller have been purchased! The registries were for me to get the completion discounts, but my family really wanted to have a shower. Wasn't expecting the big things!
GTKY: What kind of person do you hope your LO will grow up to be? Oh wow. Empathetic. Strong. Fearless. A change-maker.
29 weeks and 3 days - think I saw butternut squash on a website!
The constant peeing is getting out of control - like everyone else there’s no room left in there!! I have a regular check up tomorrow so going to ask them check I don’t have a UTI. Often can’t get comfortable relaxing and going to bed which is super annoying.
I had my interview this morning and it went really well. I don’t think I could’ve done better, fingers crossed I get it!
So many wishes for this amazing rainbow girl in my belly. I hope she is brave and never gives up in what she believes in like her Mamma and all the women in her family came before her. I hope she loves playing outside and won’t be afraid to get dirty. I hope she loves the Lord and grows to have a grateful heart. I hope all her dreams come true!
28+4, and a bowling pin or something I think?
Not really any new symptoms. I did get a prescription for a steroid cream at my appointment yesterday, which will hopefully help with the at times uncontrollable genital itching. Pregnancy is so lovely.
@ab_canada Glad to hear about the baby flipping! There are times I think my baby has, because I'm feeling more kicking under my ribs, but next thing I know it, she is back to dancing on my bladder.
@temmetime I pretty much feel the exact same way. I'm so ready for the baby to just be here, but at the same time, I know things are going to drastically change and I do not feel any where near prepared.
@mag1cbeli3ver That is awesome about coming up with a plan to get rid of credit card debt! By chance, have any advice? Credit card debt is the worst.
How far along are you? How big is baby? 28+4; baby is as big as an eggplant
How are you feeling this week? Any new symptoms? I've also been feeling worn out, which I didn't expect to be going through that already. I vacuumed my apartment and it seriously felt like I just got done deep cleaning every nook and cranny. As far as something new, I've definitely been feeling the muscles in my stomach stretching. Last night at work, I was walking around and the left side of my stomach felt tight. Makes me wonder how much worse it's going to become as I get closer to my DD.
Rants/Raves/Questions/Dear Diary? Im not sure who saw my post on another thread that my husband is getting laid off from his job at the end of next week. Financially, I'm not too worried at the moment since he will be getting a severance package. I think I'm just more worried about the lack of stability, if that makes sense. Also, I feel bad for my husband, because it's really bumming him out. He hates having to look for a new job and has no motivation. Also, it bothers him that he was going to get three paid weeks off after the baby arrives and now he is afraid whatever job he finds, won't have paternity leave. I just hate seeing him so down and I don't feel like I can do anything to make him feel better.
GTKY: What kind of person do you hope your LO will grow up to be? Above all, compassionate toward others. Also, for her to know that you get what you earn by working for it.
