Baby is the size of a(n): coconut
Upcoming Appointments: 8/12 for 24 week checkup
How are you feeling?: so tired (and subsequently irritable) because i can’t sleep through the night!! between not being comfortable laying on my side, arranging 5 different pillows just to get into a sort of comfy position and getting up to pee 3 times a night, sleep is rough. ugh. i miss a good all night sleep. i also still have back and hip pain
Rants/Raves: *rant* why do people think it’s suddenly acceptable to comment on a woman’s body size when she’s pregnant? this week alone i’ve had different people tell me i look too small to be 21 weeks and another say look big for 21 weeks! literally a day apart. like wtf, shut up? let the dr be the judge on all of that. as if it’s not awkward enough for me to deal with/dress my growing bump and changing body... i don’t need your random, uneducated opinion!! especially if you’re a man. (can you tell i’m irritable? lol)
Questions: any sleep suggestions.... please send my way. also curious what movements feel like to each of you? they are still pretty soft for me but getting a bit stronger. curious how, how often and where you are feeling?
GTKY: What is something you wish you were good at or talented at? i wish i could play an instrument really well! i took piano as a kid but never stuck with it.
@moonriver_and_me Movements have definitely been getting stronger and (fortunately) a little higher up! I would estimate that I'm feeling something every few hours. I know they say that the baby is sleeping 10-12 hours at a time like they do when they're born, but I feel like I get way more shifting around than every 10 hours.

Baby is the size of a(n): Eggplant according to Pregnancy+
Upcoming Appointments: This Thursday for 22 week check-in with my OB/GYN.
How are you feeling?: Also extremely exhausted! Also still having a hard time adjusting to how I should eat with my uterus expanding and feeling like it's pressing into all of my internal organs so much. Digestion seems slow, too. I just feel backed-up! Also, my lower back is bugging me today- I had a heavy work weekend, and I'm worried I lifted or twisted in some weird way. Ugh.
Rants/Raves: Rant- what's up with the sizing on the Bump site? It's such a load of CRAP! After being told yesterday that my baby was as big as a football and weighed in at about a pound, today I'm told that my baby is as tall as a pencil. I don't have any football length pencils at my house! Rave- my daughter has a birthday party this weekend, and I decided to order for pick-up at Target so we don't have to wander around the store forever. Some technology is so nice!
Questions: Not too much at the moment! How is everybody's bump developing? In the morning when I'm more "empty", I can definitely feel the firm bump in there. At night, it's lost under a lot of bloating and daily exhaustion :P
GTKY: What is something you wish you were good at or talented at? I wish I was good at painting or illustration. I've never been much of into drawing, but I think it would be really theraputic now!

Baby is the size of a(n): I'm also confused about this. Endive? Starbucks Trenta cup?
Upcoming Appointments: 24 wk OB and glucose test on 8/20
How are you feeling?: A little worn out, but mostly good. My belly is getting quite large and beginning to be a bit cumbersome. Getting up from laying down and bending over are more challenging. I get heartburn, mostly when I eat something unwise, but so far it's minor enough that Tums does the trick.
Rants/Raves: I'm not feeling too ranty nor ravey tonight. Pretty even keeled at the moment. I haven't been super emotional, but I should note that I take an antidepressant, so that may be what is keeping me stable! Without it, I would probably be a nervous wreck all the time. So maybe this is a rave for my antidepressant, after all😄
Questions: Anyone noticing swelling yet? So far it's just a little in my hands if I walk a lot in the heat, and one of my ankles swells slightly from an old injury if I'm on my feet a lot. Anyone order a breast pump yet? I just started the process with Aeroflow. It seems super easy; they contact your insurance and doctor to take care of the logistics.
GTKY: What is something you wish you were good at or talented at? Sometimes I wish I were better at hiding my emotions and opinions. My face always gives it away and it gets me in trouble sometimes. But I've never been accused of being fake.🤷♀️

Baby is the size of a(n): Toothbrush? Wtf is up with these sizes?!
Upcoming Appointments: Thursday for my 22 week checkup
How are you feeling?: Pretty good. My stomach is so tender and seems a lot worse at nice so I’m not sleeping that well which has me feeling run down.
Rants/Raves: I started out the pregnancy with 2 pairs of jeans and 2 pairs of denim shorts. I’m on the verge of outgrowing them already and I’m highly annoyed at the thought of buying more over priced shorts to use for another month or so.
Questions: Is anyone else still struggling with skin issues? It’s gotten a little better but I’m always rocking at least 2 good sized zits and I’m over it.
GTKY: What is something you wish you were good at or talented at? Doing my hair. Superficial but it’s either air dried and put up or flat ironed. I’d love to master the wand or pretty beach waves.

Baby is the size of a(n): baseball hat
Upcoming Appointments: Next appointment is 8/6 and I know it'll be with the nurse practitioner since my doctor is out of town.
How are you feeling?: This week I've been having more body aches, but I'm thinking they are heat related. I'm working on pushing more fluids to see if that helps.
Rants/Raves: I'm ready to feel this baby moving around more. I'm sure I'll regret saying that in a few weeks, but I love feeling baby kicks and punches and feel like it's taken a while this third time around to feel baby movements.
GTKY: What is something you wish you were good at or talented at? I would love to be a really good singer and would love to be willing to perform knowing I am a good singer.

Upcoming Appointments: 8/14
How are you feeling?: mentally and emotionally, things are good to day. I’m so exhausted though!
Rants/Raves: The last week and a half have been so rough. Being diagnosed with vasa previa has been really hard, but as of yesterday I have been feeling more like myself. I haven’t cried as much the past 2 days. I found a Facebook group of women who have also been diagnosed or have in the past. I’ve seen more positives than anything and have really realized how truly lucky we are to have had this diagnosed when we did. Still counting down the days until I’m hospitalized at 32 weeks. I’ll really feel like we’ve made it then! I’m really missing “loving” on my husband. I’m on total pelvic rest, no “Os” either, until baby is born. My libido is through the roof right now 😬🙃
GTKY: What is something you wish you were good at or talented at? Singing! I’m so tone deaf 😂
@cpk3535 I've had more back pain recently too! Sorry to hear about yours. No fun.
@k_mama91 I'm not breaking out this time but last time with my boy my skin was the absolute worst it's ever been. I actually started suspecting it might be a girl this time because my skin was so much better than the last pregnancy.

Baby is the size of a(n): coconut? Pencil? 500-ct bottle of ibuprofen 600mg? Has the pencil ever been sharpened and does it have an eraser? I don't even know.
Upcoming Appointments: next Wednesday
How are you feeling?: I think the nausea is *knocks on wood* basically gone at last. I've felt mostly good this past week and have been cleaning a lot. Nesting maybe?
Rants/Raves: Rant and Rave: DS has definitely been embracing his toddler side recently and fighting us on EVERYTHING. Tonight he actually went through his bedtime routine fairly smoothly and there were no tears when I put him in his crib! For the first time this week! He usually loves going to bed but this week he has been in hysterics when I put him in his crib. And the dog's resistant-bacteria-infected injury has finally healed over thanks to 2 weeks of her fancy antibiotics. No more cone of shame! Tonight was really nice!
Questions: anyone else noticing major RLP during basic exercise (i.e. walking) or am I just that out of shape? I've been noticing much more this week.
GTKY: What is something you wish you were good at or talented at? Something athletic or cleaning? Either would be nice.

Baby is the size of a(n): Endive
Upcoming Appointments: 8/12
How are you feeling?: Feel good. I had awful round ligament pain every time I moved on Sunday, but thankfully that’s gone now.
Rants/Raves: I had an ultrasound today, and I am pretty sick of this terrible sonographer. My doctor’s office has a few that are all great, but the last few times I’ve gone I got this one sonographer whom I do not like because she rushes. Today when I went in, she didn’t say one word about what she was looking at, didn’t show the baby’s face or head, and then tried to say we were done without giving me a single photo! I had to ask to get even one photo of my baby! Ughhhh I really, really don’t like this woman’s sonograms 😡
Questions: anyone else starting to feel like their baby is a kick boxer? I feel her bumping around inside there *all day* long.
GTKY: What is something you wish you were good at or talented at? Piano. I always wanted piano lessons as a kid.
