Baby is the size of a(n): avocado
Any appointments? Questions?: Next appointment tomorrow.
Rants/Raves?: I’m pretty sure I’ve started to feel the baby move! It’s still pretty light feeling, so I won’t be surprised if I don’t feel it every day.
How are you feeling?: Still getting sick in the mornings before I eat and occasionally feeling nauseous at other points in the day, but I think I’m finally over most of the nausea.
GTKY - [Stolen from other groups] Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Not really.
Baby is the size of a(n): avocado
Any appointments? Questions?: level 2 ultrasound coming up this week
Rants/Raves?: I tried to cut back on the unisom I’ve been taking and my MS came back ugh avengance. I’m over it!! Also super anxious about my ultrasound after unsettling results from my NT Scan.
How are you feeling?: sick and anxious.
GTKY - [Stolen from other groups] Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Manage my anxiety. Not going so well.
Baby is the size of a(n): navel orange
Any appointments? Questions?: my next appt is Jan 31st. Have to wait until Feb 28th for the anatomy scan, though.
Rants/Raves?: We announced on Facebook on the 1st. It feels good to finally have it out there, especially since I have so many FB friends that are due within a few months of me & I almost slipped up several times & commented on their posts about my pregnancy.
How are you feeling?: Okay most of the time. Some food aversions still, but no major nausea issues. Also, I feel like I have been feeling flutters for the last 3 weeks or so. I'm looking forward to when H & DD1&2 can feel the movements, too.
GTKY - [Stolen from other groups] Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Just made a goal to focus more on family this year.
Baby is the size of a(n): Avocado!
Any appointments? Questions?: Monthly routine checkup on Jan24, I could have sworn she said we’d be doing a US but I have my anatomy scan in Feb so I doubt we’d do two?
Rants/Raves?: Rant: I cant seem to find any good maternity pants for work, although I’ve been using my Bellaband and prepregnancy work pants, it’s getting annoying having to pull them up all the time. I kind of want something that will go over my belly since I’m always so cold.
How are you feeling?: Good! Starting to get uncomfortable when I sleep since I’m forced to sleep on my left side or back. I usually sleep on my right (prepregnancy) but it’s been uncomfortable.
GTKY - [Stolen from other groups] Have you made any New Year's resolutions? A lot of work related resolutions but I definitely want to read more and spend less time on social media.
Baby is the size of a(n): lightbulb
Any appointments? Questions?: Just booked the anatomy scan for Feb 7!
Rants/Raves?: Rave!!! Doctor cleared me to go back to pole class (minus the inversions) and my first class back is tonight! Cannot wait to start moving again!
How are you feeling?: much much MUCH better! As long as I eat first thing when I wake up the nausea has mostly subsided. This insomnia though... it's a killer.
GTKY - [Stolen from other groups] Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Be a good mom?? I didn't make one.
Baby is the size of a(n): donut
Any appointments? Questions?: early anatomy scan Friday and bloodwork for maternal serum test
Rants/Raves?: I go to weekly checks since my NT scare, and my last 2 appts have gone really well. My nuchal measure is now normal so things are looking much better for my little munchkin.
How are you feeling?: M/S gone, just lots of headache and aches/pains
GTKY - [Stolen from other groups] Have you made any New Year's resolutions? To be kinder to myself and build my self esteem to where it should be
Baby is the size of a(n): Jar of Nutella
Any appointments? Questions?: I don’t have my next appointment until January 24th. It will be our anatomy scan, so we’re really excited! I’m anxiously awaiting the results from my Horizon genetic screening, though.
Rants/Raves?: My taste buds are super strong, and I’m kind of over it. I was making fruit salad a few weeks ago, and the melon tasted like it had gone bad to me, but to everyone else it didn’t seem ripe. The worst, though, was I put some cookies in a container I had used for leftovers over the weekend, and even though the container was clean, the cookies now taste and smell like the leftovers, but only to me! My husband thinks they’re perfectly fine.
How are you feeling?: I’m simultaneously happy and worried because I feel normal! About a week ago, I thought my morning sickness would never end, but now, I feel better all around—fatigue is better and no nausea. But the baby is very comfy on my left side (I can feel a bump there), and I haven’t felt any definitive movements (maybe flutters, but it could definitely be something else); plus I get cramps on the left side for the most part (just growing pains, I think) so I’m worried something’s wrong. The nausea and fatigue sucked, but it made me feel like I was definitively pregnant, at least!
GTKY - [Stolen from other groups] Have you made any New Year's resolutions?: For the first time ever, no, because I already feel like I’m going through enough changes right now!
Baby is the size of a(n): App says CD today but avocado yesterday and those seem to be VERY different sizes so...?
Any appointments? Questions?: Had an OB appointment Monday that went pretty well! Nothing really extraordinary there -- peed in a cup, checked my BP, listened for the heartbeat, talked to the OB. My homework is to start finding out what I need to do to get a breast pump through insurance, sign up for online birthing classes through our hospital, and if I'm feeling ambitious, start researching a pediatrician. HOW IS IT POSSIBLY TIME FOR THESE THINGS ALREADY?
Rants/Raves?: Kind of both in one story: I'm finally at the point where my normal jeans are uncomfortable. I've lasted a while in them because I'm pretty hourglass-y, so I always have to size them to fit my hips, which leaves a ton of space in the waist. But it's finally to the point where the button is starting to dig in (and forget a belt, that sucker hurts when I'm sitting at my desk all day). My mind wandered there for a minute during church on Sunday, but it was a "file this away for later" thing -- I'd just as soon buy maternity clothes used because I'm cheap AF, and don't want to get something that I'll have to replace in two months anyway (if things keep growing), but my town has crap for thrift stores. Rant: I hate wearing real pants, and I hate that we don't have better thrift stores in a city with a quarter of a million people. After the service, a semi-friend (her older sister and I lived together in college, but she's about 10 years younger than we are) came up to me and asked if I might have any use for her old maternity clothes -- she had given them to a friend, who unexpectedly gave them back, and she didn't know what to do with them, but since we're about the same size she figured I'd ask. WHAT?!?! Clearly this is my rave -- how does that even happen? YAY!!!
How are you feeling?: Pretty much fine...still feeling not very pregnant (despite the tummy, which is finally starting to look something akin to a baby bump instead of the morning after a gorgefest at the local Pizza Ranch) so that's kind of a mind-bender. I just don't feel much of anything, but I'm hoping that next month, getting to see Baby on an ultrasound again (since it's been FOREVER since the last one...haven't had one in two months) and finding out gender so we can give him or her a real name will help make this a little more real.
GTKY - [Stolen from other groups] Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Pfffft, what's a resolution?
Baby is the size of a(n): CD
Any appointments? Questions?: Next week
Rants/Raves?: So much gas! Also, I stopped discussing names with people when asked because I was getting unsolicited negative feedback. Seems like everyone has an opinion on names. 🙄
How are you feeling?: Overall I feel okay. Waiting to see my baby bump! I am struggling to train myself to sleep on my left side though. I’m a back sleeper. I bought the Queen rose pregnancy pillow on amazon hoping that it would help but I seem to wake up on my back still more often than not.
GTKY - [Stolen from other groups] Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Not really but I have decided to try to be more mindful and actively try to manage my stress better. My work is a stressful place and I’ve been having issues with a coworker. Prenatal yoga has helped a lot. I’ve also started diffusing stress relieving essential oils in my office and I do the breathing technique where you inhale through your nose as long as you can then exhale through your mouth for as long as you can when it gets really overwhelming.
Junior bacon cheeseburger (LOL that's not what my bump app told me - either an avocado or a CD, so it says - but I figure we're all working with the same foods here so I wanted to throw something else in. PS: I'm a vegetarian)
Had an appointment today - first time I saw a male doc (which I specifically didn't want but he rotates in my practice.) I actually loved him! Very to the point and easy to understand - I feel like I've been rushed through my last few appointments, and also felt like I wasn't given the clearest direction on what's elective and what's required. (FTM and I don't know my head from my butt in these appointments.) But he was great!
Loving my skin. I've suffered from acne most of my life and not only did it clear up, but I've got a rosy blush going on. It's kinda nice because I feel like the blush+extra weight has taken some years off my face. Thanks baby boo! (And now I'm internet blushing for sounding so superficial, lol)
I hate dealing with the red tape of healthcare: calling my insurance, sorting paperwork, arguing charges, trying to make sure I'm in-network, wondering if I'm being tricked into stuff that makes the hospital/insurance money but doesn't actually help me - the list could go on and on. Argh. But today's appointment was good - so there's hope!
Tired...anxious...goofy...bloated...grateful...snippy at SO...tired.
Yes- I'm reading one book/week until baby comes. I LOVE to read and know that time will be quite precious for months (years?) after baby's arrival - so trying to dive in and get some books knocked off my "always wanted to read, but never have" list.
Baby is the size of a(n): Avacado
Any appointments? Questions?: I have my first scheduled appointment at the hospital rather than the GP in a couple of weeks. Will be meeting with the MFM and Obstetrician. Should also be referred for my anatomy scan on Monday. Feeling pumped, excited, nervous. A myriad of emotions really.
Rants/Raves?: Not really. I'm feeling pretty sedate these days compared to the beginning where everything annoyed me. So not much is rattling me at the moment.
Raves though: Easter is around the corner. Here that means Hot Cross Buns. The local supermarket does a chocolate version and... lets just say I have ingested many of these already. Link is to a recipe, although I love baking I just buy them. https://www.delicious.com.au/recipes/chocolate-hot-cross-buns/Qo1QxWhz
How are you feeling?: Tired. I sleep in till 7:30/8 then take a nap again around lunch time, then my eyes are closing by 8pm. I also think I might be feeling baby? Particularly right before bed. I don't know. FTM=I have no idea what I'm feeling down there. Could still be gas! However I can find him on the doppler all the time now. Figured out where he likes to hang out so that has been reassuring.
GTKY - [Stolen from other groups] Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Theoretically to keep the house cleaner than I currently do. Looking at the state of my floors currently, I think that perhaps I've already failed.
@ki1244 I think I still look like I ate a lot of cake (or hot cross buns!) rather than pregnant. Hoping that this changes before I go back to working with teenagers. They can be blunt! I hope you get to see your LO soon
