  • Est Due Date/Weeks + Days: 15w5   1/1

    Team Finding Out/Blue/Pink/Green: Green

    Baby is the size of a(n): Mixed Tape

    Upcoming Appointments: Tomorrow!!!!! (midwife appointment finally)

    How are you feeling?: terrible, not sure what's going on. I'm nauseous all over again, started vomiting and dry heaving again. I feel that at the end of the day my V is swollen! hahaha Also I believe I am feeling flutters, this is usually at the end of the day or right before bed when I'm relaxing, so that's exciting!

    Rants/Raves: We had such a good weekend, DH and I took DD on a surprise to an amusement park near by, she was so excited to go on some rides and the big water park they have there too. DH had to mainly go on all the rides with her, all I did was the carousel. She's not even 3 and was asking when she can go on the big roller coasters  :D

    Questions: Anyone else feel like they are regressing back to 1st trimester, I am even more exhausted now then before (in bed by 8:30 every night) and the nausea is back

    GTKY: If you had to leave your current country, to what country would you choose to move (pretend language wouldn’t be an issue)? Finland! or somewhere on the Mediterranean. Anywhere in Europe to be honest...one day we'll make it happen

  • @c1kc1kpol1cn1k yes on the exhaustion! I've never been this exhausted in my life (including with a newborn). It's getting really hard to function. 

    EDD/weeks: 1/6/19, 15 weeks

    Team Pink

    Baby is the size of a navel orange

    Upcoming appointments: Next will be next week

    Rants/raves: Summer is so hard with all the weekend commitments. I feel like there's never time to rest and get caught up.

    Questions: Are people shopping much yet? I'm so tempted but I have overshopping tendencies that I'm trying to keep in check.

    GTKY: New Zealand. Hands down.

  • @Xstatic3333 right! I feel like I wasn't like this last time hahah. I'm not doing any shopping yet but a lot of browsing. I think I want to get a Halo Bassient or a 4Moms MommaRu, I'll most likely get them "lightly used" on Facebook Marketplace since so many new moms put them on their registry or buy them full price and use them either never or barely ahah. With DD I refused any type of carrier/swing etc other than me holding her or a wrap haha this time I won't be able to do the same with having a toddler around.

  • @c1kc1kpol1cn1k So glad to hear you mention regression! From about weeks 12-15 I was feeling that glow they say comes with the second trimester, but for the last week or so I’ve felt back to the exhaustion/food aversion. Full on nausea isn’t back but generally feeling so blah.

    EDD: 1/2/2020

    Upcoming appointments: This week is my next usual appointment, then just one month until the A/S!

    Rants/raves: So overwhelmed with researching/touring daycares. And totally shocked at the cost. 

    Questions: I would have asked if anyone feels like they’re regressing but that was answered for me!

  • Est Due Date/Weeks + Days: 8th January / 14+6

    Team Finding Out/Blue/Pink/Green: Finding out

    Baby is the size of a(n): a donut, a playing card or a troll doll depending what app you look at. this always annoys me a little me given that none of these things are the same size

    Upcoming Appointments: nothing this week, next appointment is 24th at the twin clinic

    How are you feeling?: pretty good. i havnt thrown up in 10 whole days! & friday & monday were public holidays here so i was at my parents and i was able to nap and really rest so i feel like i have more energy today than i have in a long time! 

    Rants/Raves: Rants: i officially have GD which is annoying as its so early but better that i know now and its being treated and managed but also a literal pain with checking blood sugars 7x daily & insulin twice daily so far.
    Raves: DD is staying at my parents til friday so we are taking full advantage and going out for dinner tonight & to the cinema on thursday night!
    Also, we started potty training dd on friday past & whilst the first 1.5 days were a disaster, since saturday afternoon she has only had 1 accident which was when we were at the park and she was too busy playing to tell us she needed to go!

    Questions: nothing atm

    GTKY: If you had to leave your current country, to what country would you choose to move (pretend language wouldn’t be an issue)? i did a round the world trip when i was younger & lived and worked in australia for a few months and they had such a nice work life balance. i also really liked new zealand.

  • @knotsurewhattocallmyself I totally had that 2 week grace period, now back to square one haha, Glad I'm not alone but hope it passes soon for us!

    @leprechaunlady Yay on not throwing up for so long!!! I was wondering why it was so quiet here yesterday, I didn't know it was a holiday. Have fun with DH  and the alone time :)

  • @c1kc1kpol1cn1k im in Northern Ireland & its a pretty random public holiday that i dont think happens anywhere else tbh
  • Est Due Date/Weeks + Days: 14w

    Team Finding Out/Blue/Pink/Green:  Green

    Baby is the size of a(n):  Nectarine

    Upcoming Appointments:  Next week, couldn't come soon enough.

    How are you feeling?:  Ok, lots of worry about this one.  I felt feverish this morning, but maybe it is just the crazy heat.  

    Rants/Raves: Rave:2nd trimester!  
    Rant: This heat with a barely functional swamp cooler.  

    Questions: 

    GTKY: If you had to leave your current country, to what country would you choose to move (pretend language wouldn’t be an issue)?

    Ireland, absolutely.

  • Est Due Date/Weeks + Days: 1/8, 14w6d

    Team Finding Out/Blue/Pink/Green: we'll find out at the 20 week ultrasound next month 

    Baby is the size of a(n): nectarine

    Upcoming Appointments: first appt with an MD on 7/25 (all others have been with a NP) 

    How are you feeling?: Ok, like others I feel like I'm regressing. I felt great from weeks 11 to the first part of this week but now I'm exhausted and my stomach is iffy again. I'm sure the heat isn't helping- it's been 90 degrees with super high humidity for awhile now

    Rants/Raves: Days with unpleasant symptoms suck but then on days I feel "normal" I wonder how I'm supposed to know everything is ok in there when I'm not feeling any movement yet (sometimes I think maybe I am but it's my first and can't tell for sure). Also looking at daycare/just all the options for everything has me overwhelmed! 

    Questions: 

    GTKY: If you had to leave your current country, to what country would you choose to move (pretend language wouldn’t be an issue)? Sweden or Norway maybe. Or Ireland?
