It's been a while since we've had one of these...
Baby is the size of a(n):
Any appointments? Questions?:
How are you feeling?:
GTKY - Have you made any New Year's resolutions?
Baby is the size of a(n): mango
Any appointments? Questions?: I have to schedule the anatomy scan for the coming 1-2 weeks. I am a bit anxious about it...
I'm a bit concerned about my weight gain, which is slightly over the
limit of the recommended range (by 3-5lbs). I'm trying to watch what I
eat, and I think going back to work will help, since I walk there and
How are you feeling?: I feel so much better than in
first tri, even my acne are now manageable. I still get some burps and
hiccups, occasional reflux (I'm sure this will worsen), and I'm a bit
more tired in the evenings than I otherwise would be, but I am
definitely enjoying that mythical second tri energy boost.
Due date/W+D: June 5 / 18w + 3 d
Baby is the size of a(n): artichoke
Any appointments? Questions?: No appt until the 21st, my anatomy scan
Rants/Raves?: Moving while pregnant = not recommended. Moving while pregnant and with a toddler = definitely not recommended. Also not recommended - moving two days after Christmas. It's been a challenging holiday season, but I'm hoping to get some unpacking done now that I don't feel awful all the time.
How are you feeling?: Less nausea. Baby is moving often. Still makes me jump, even though I'm expecting it and am at STM.
GTKY - Have you made any New Year's resolutions? I don't make these as much anymore, but I'm tired of living boxes. I am determined to get unpacked and will bug DH until it gets all done!
Due date/W+D: May 31, 19w2d
Baby is the size of a(n): zucchini
Any appointments? Questions?: Next appointment is on Jan 16....anatomy scan and then I'll meet with my midwife
Rants/Raves?: Starting to get annoyed that my husband literally doesn't acknowledge my pregnancy or the baby unless I bring it up. We weren't trying...but we also weren't preventing. I told him flat out I was done with birth control because of its negative effects on my body and had my IUD removed in May. Fast forward to September and I get pregnant. He's not unhappy or anything about the baby, but he also has made it known (even before pregnancy) that he was happy with just the one child we have. Well dude, you did nothing on your end to prevent this pregnancy. I've always wanted two kids, and he knew that, so when stopped using any form of BC I made it very well known that the ball was in his court. Anway...long rant but it's starting to just bother me that he never even mentions the baby, asks how things are going on my end, that I am starting to have some negative impacts in terms of soreness and tiredness, on and on.
How are you feeling?: Physically I am starting to have more frequent lower back soreness and aches. I've also got a nice case of insomnia so I can't really sleep well after 4-5am so I am more tired now than ever.
GTKY - Have you made any New Year's resolutions? I'm not a resolution person really
Due date/W+D: 6-7-19/18+2
Baby is the size of a(n): Hamster, by weight
Any appointments? Questions?: appt 1/11. Some days I FEEL pregnant (down to the waddle when I walk) and some days I just don’t. is that normal?
Rants/Raves?: my mother is driving me nuts but my husband is a literal angel. She’s acting like I’m 2 again and need to be told how to do everything I have to do. He’s always so supportive and sweet to me and he lets me sleep. He’s the best.
How are you feeling?: tired. Always so tired
GTKY - Have you made any New Year's resolutions?
The last one I made was to ask out a person I felt was way out of my league. Two and a half years later I’m married and pregnant because mr. “Out of my league” turned out to be my soulmate.
@Erin1510 sorry your DH is not recognizing your needs. My DH and I very much wanted and planned this baby and he touched my belly for the first time yesterday. So I kinda get what you’re dealing with. It’s frustrating for sure! Also YGPM
@battleangel I definitely feel more pregnant some days over others. Now that I’m feeling more consistent movement that has helped.
Due date/W+D: June 6th, 18w4d
Baby is the size of a(n): slingshot
Any appointments? Questions?: not until the end of this month.
Rants/Raves?: work sucks, I knew January would be busy but I wasn’t ready for this after few weeks off
How are you feeling?: not terrible, emotionally I’m doing good bc I’m feeling movement and I got a Doppler. Physically still the same (headaches, occasional nausea, and exhaustion)
GTKY - Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Nope, not my thing
Last day, I guess I should check in
Due date/W+D: June 5th, 18 weeks 6 days
Any appointments? Questions?: Check in tomorrow, a/s next week.
Rants/Raves?: My holidays at home went ok but it was great to be back home. DS got way too many toys, we are in need of better toy organization.
How are you feeling?: Rough day today, my anxiety is spiking.
GTKY - Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Not really New Years, have a set of want to get done before baby comes list.
Due date/W+D: 19w June 4th
Baby is the size of a(n): mango!
Any appointments? Questions?: Anatomy scan next week! I'm a bit nervous. Everyone keeps asking what sex I want, and I'm just like a healthy baby. And a truly mean that. I'd love a brother for DS to play with. But I'd also love a little girl. I'd be happy with either.
Rants/Raves?: Yesterday DH was able to feel baby kick. They were moving up a storm last night and I made DH feel. I had an anterior placenta the first time around so I didn't feel DS until 21 weeks.
How are you feeling?: Pretty good.
GTKY - Have you made any New Year's resolutions? To get out of debt. I can't afford to pay CC bills and a second child in daycare.
Due date/W+D: June 3/19+2
Baby is the size of a(n): Artichoke
Any appointments? Questions?: Appointment on Friday and will schedule my AS at the hospital after that appointment.
Rants/Raves?: Rants: I need more sleep! My son is a constant early riser (6:30am) and I'm just struggling every morning. It's not terrible because honestly we have to get up and out of the house but at the same time I'd love to just go back to the days of waking up when I want not on someone else's schedule (Yeah, right!)
How are you feeling?: Feeling fine in general, fewer headaches which is nice, but I started to come down with a cold today. I feel like normally I could muster the strength to just push through but being pregnant I just give up and say, "nope, not today."
GTKY - Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Not specifically. I'm all about getting more organized and cleaning out some toys. I've started hiding things in the closet to slowly get rid of them without my son noticing.
Due date/W+D: May 31st / 20 weeks 😊
Baby is the size of a: Banana 🍌
Any appointments? Questions?: I had an appointment with my midwife yesterday and got the results of our 19+4 ultrasound - all clear! Baby is healthy and on track!
Rants/Raves?: Belly is starting to get in the way, but nothing else really!
How are you feeling?: I have felt great throughout the pregnancy, and I'm so grateful. A bit of hip pain this week. A little trouble sleeping here and there but I really can't complain! So happy to have our first child on the way!
GTKY - Have you made any New Year's resolutions? Nope! Just anxious to declutter the house. 🙌🏻
Due date/W+D: June 3 / 19W + 4
Baby is the size of a: Ping pong paddle?? It's really the size of a baby

Rants/Raves?: No real rants or raves, other than just being happy everything is turning out to be good news so far!
are you feeling?: Still have some weird, lingering nausea, but at least no more vomiting.
