How are you feeling? (Cravings/Symptoms): Ugh, the itchy legs thing has come back in waves. I was free for a bit, and then it came back a couple of days ago. All I can think is that it must be an allergy to something, possibly gluten, which I’m sensitive to but have never had to avoid so completely. Otherwise, just dizziness, still sometimes stomach sensitive (usually in the car), really sleepy by mid-afternoon. After that list, I would still say I’m doing well overall, though! 😆
Rants/Raves: I’m not a soda girl, but coke slurpees have been one of my cravings lately. I think it’s the heat and the need for water! Also, a rave for myself- I taught at a new yoga studio last week, and I’m starting a regular class tonight that goes for the summer! I’m proud to be doing this while pregnant❤️
Questions: Favorite baby wearing device? I’ve researched a lot of the ones mentioned in the baby gear thread, but I’d like this group’s second opinion. Also, we’re planning to go crib free and just use a pack n play for everything this time. Any thoughts or favorites? Coolest features for doing everything?
GTKY: What is your favorite vacation destination? Maui- for me, it’s such a spiritual, natural experience. My photo is from our last trip and a night where we sat on large rocks at the beach watching the sunset. I used the time to meditate, and it was amazing. We’re actually considering moving there, but our second favorite vacation spot (Southern California) will probably win 😉❤️
EDD/Weeks + Days: 12/5 16w4d
FTM/STM/TTM+: Already mom to 8yo ds
Team Finding Out/Blue/Pink/Green: Finding Out in 4 days and 45 minutes. But whose counting 😉
Upcoming Appointments: 6/28 for gender!
How are you feeling? (Cravings/Symptoms): My moodiness has been unreal. I’ve been feeling so badly about my snappiness and overly emotional responses to everyone.
Rants/Raves: A Below 5 store just opened here and I went. Big mistake. Did you guys know they have a HUGE candy section?! Like good candy I can’t find at the grocery haha I hid the candy I bought and I’m not ashamed.
GTKY: What is your favorite vacation destination? Pensacola Beach. The sand is white, the water is gorgeous, and it’s only a 10 hour drive. This time next week I’ll be beached whale status down there and can’t wait 😎
@cpk3535 we are going to Maui for the first time in August for a babymoon and your answer made me very excited 😊 would love any recs!
EDD/Weeks + Days: 16w 5d
Team Finding Out/Blue/Pink/Green: pink 💕
Upcoming Appointments: 20 week 3d anatomy ultrasound 7/15
How are you feeling? (Cravings/Symptoms): so much better than a few weeks ago. more like myself and i am in a good mood generally. really enjoying being back in pilates and having more focus with work. i do get really tired around 3 or 4 in the afternoon and it tends to bum me out. i’m trying to remind myself it’s normal and i need to rest. i feel like i’ve been forgetful too. oh and super hungry. i am eating a snack every 2 hours for sure. trying to keep it healthy but definitely craving chocolate soft serve a lot in this heat! doing superfood juice and fruit protein smoothies instead (mostly 😉)
Rants/Raves: i love fashion and i hate that so much of my wardrobe doesn’t fit right anymore. i’ve been shopping for maternity-friendly clothing and some actual maternity pieces (pants/shorts mainly) but it’s a process because most stuff is online and never fits right and doesn’t feel like me. it’s such a frustrating feeling like you have nothing to wear! and feels dumb to spend money for something you only wear for a short time. grr.
Questions: anyone else experiencing back pain and hip pain lately? also, when will you stop lying/sleeping on your stomach?
GTKY: What is your favorite vacation destination? Belize or Paris, for totally opposite reasons!

Team Finding Out/Blue/Pink/Green: Pink
Upcoming Appointments: 6/26 for 16wk OB appointment
How are you feeling? (Cravings/Symptoms): I'm still struggling with nausea on and off and have had some mild headaches. No matter what I eat or when, I've been getting heartburn every night before bed. 2 Tums and a cup of milk does the trick. I've been craving salad, but I think mostly just as a vehicle for ranch dressing and croutons.😳
Rants/Raves: We found a daycare that we love and they have a spot for us! It's a lot more than we'd hoped to spend, but it is a huge relief to have that sorted out. The waiting lists and tours were making me super anxious recently.
Questions: Is it rude to pass on a baby shower if a friend or family member offers to host one for me? I don't want to be ungracious and I do appreciate the generosity, but we have a tiny apartment and need to keep our gear to a minimum. I know I could register for gifts, but in my experience, people like to bring clothes to a shower and I'm worried we would end up with mostly things that we won't need or use.
I like exploring new cities. Some favorites are Paris, Tokyo, Boston, and Seattle.
@cpk3535 I liked the Moby wrap when DS was little. It was comfy and looked complicated enough that not many people asked to hold him at family gatherings last winter! As he's gotten bigger I love my meh dai, but DH likes the Ergobaby.
@blueskychicago12 I thought I felt one when I was sitting all scrunched up one evening! But it may have been my imagination - nothing since.
EDD/Weeks + Days: 12-3 /17wk
Team Finding Out/Blue/Pink/Green: Finding out
Upcoming Appointments: 7-10 for anatomy scan
How are you feeling? (Cravings/Symptoms): I thought I was feeling enough better nausea-wise to stop my B6 and unisom so I skipped them for a day. BIG mistake. I felt so sick I had to take 2 of my carefully rationed Zofran. What gives?! Guess I'll be taking them a little longer.
Rants/Raves: sick of being sick
GTKY: What is your favorite vacation destination? We went to Jamaica for our honeymoon and that was really nice. Other than that we haven't been on any trips recently other than visiting family.
EDD/Weeks + Days: 15w + 6d
Team Finding Out/Blue/Pink/Green: Team Green!
Upcoming Appointments: Pre-Natal on July 5th, Anatomy Scan on July 23rd
How are you feeling? (Cravings/Symptoms): Feeling a million times better than 1st tri. Feel like myself, which is nice. Been able to keep up with my workouts and I don't feel nauseous anymore. I've been a little tired in the evenings but that could also be because we've been spending a lot of time at the pool. I also noticed my weight gain has really slowed down this month, which is a nice change!
Rants/Raves: None at the moment.
GTKY: What is your favorite vacation destination?Family vacation..... KauaiRomantic getaway.... Either Santorini or Turks & Caicos
EDD/Weeks + Days: 12/4 17 weeks 1 day
Team Finding Out/Blue/Pink/Green: BLUE!
Upcoming Appointments: 7/17 20 week ultra sound! Seriously, can't wait.
How are you feeling? (Cravings/Symptoms): I haven't posted on here for awhile... but I've been feeling great (for the most part) my nausea has gone away. My only problem is my horrible headaches. They were so bad one day that I ended up throwing up... I was in tears. Doctor told me to take Benadryl, which has helped so much. I'm still eating really bad. I'm very aware of it and am trying so hard to eat my veggies and grilled chicken, but you know....pizza is life.
Rants/Raves: I felt my first flutters today where I knew it for sure was baby boy! Felt like he was fist pumping in there. Probably saying, "More pizza, more pizza!" So here I am eating pizza for lunch, again.
Questions: Are you all having gender reveals? I had mine last Sunday! We did "Wheels or Heels" and my husband did a burnout with his truck. So much fun! It was also a diaper keg, so we have a whole room filled with diapers now! I recommend doing a diaper keg/drive for sure!
GTKY: What is your favorite vacation destination? ARUBA! My family has a timeshare because we love it so much. My parents are trying to convince us to go in March and have sent me so many articles about how easy it is to travel internationally with a 4 month old.... but idk! Also, I'm not sure how my bosses would feel about me taking a week off after maternity leave.
