Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: banana?
Upcoming appointments: in a month
How are you feeling?: good. I’ve been super tired in the afternoons and getting achy/cramps in my back sometimes
Rants/Raves: We are getting snow again Tuesday night through Thursday 😭😭😭 I’m so over snow and cold. Also I need to update DDs clothes to stuff that will fit her and why is it so expensive?? I’m good news we are starting our big fence install tomorrow!!
GTKY: What’s your favourite Disney/Pixar movie? I love so many of them. Loved the Little Mermaid growing up now I love Coco, Moana, and we just watched the new Raya and the Last Dragon and I thought it was great.
@Kenneylynn3 we are getting snow too. 😭
EDD/Weeks + Days: August 26, 20w3d
Team: Finding Out! Maybe this week??
Baby is the size of: sweet potato
Upcoming appointments: Anatomy scan today! I’m nervous, stressed, excited. It’s not until 2:30, so it will be a long day. I have my follow up with my doctor on Thursday, I think.
How are you feeling?: OK if I take my Diclectin. I don’t have much of an appetite.
Rants/Raves: My 2yo has just started his clingy, mummy-only phase. My 4yo is copying. I would like to go to the bathroom without having someone barge in and that means MH needs to do more (than current nothing) to intervene when they chase after me. I’m flattered, but I’m also at the end of my rope and it’s not like when the baby arrives it will get any easier.
The weather this weekend was so nice. It was great just being able to toss the boys outside in just a jumper to play in the yard.
GTKY: What’s your favourite Disney/Pixar movie? Growing up Hercules, Mulan and Robin Hood were favourites. Influenced by our 4yo, I think Wall-E might be my new fave. Or Moana.
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: 8/15, 22+1
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: coconut
Upcoming appointments: next Thursday for a regular check-up
How are you feeling?: good! More energy. Also though feeling like this dude is going to fall out of me, so still trying to figure out some sort of support belt/tank to get me through. He's just so much lower than the other two were
Rants/Raves: my bestie thinks she's in labor with her second, but I think it's just her body getting ready. I remember feeling the same way with my second - almost like since you know what to expect, you're more sensitive to it? Idk, anyway, I just want to meet her baby girl!!
GTKY: What’s your favourite Disney/Pixar movie? Beauty & the Beast was my favorite as a child. I love both Frozen movies now though - that sister relationship reminds me a lot of my relationship with my sister.
@Kenneylynn3 wow, now I really want a root beer! Definitely my favorite soda, haha. What kind of car are you getting?
@grogu sorry to hear about the PP, I hope you get some good info from others (and also that it moves)!
@mrspants0809 that is nuts that you and @Kenneylynn3 are still dealing with snow, what a pain. Hope it doesn't interfere with your fence installation!
@pickle-chips you are probably just finishing up your AS as I type this, hope everything is going/went well! Sending all the good vibes.
@BourbonBiscuits that's exciting about your friend! Is she close to her due date or would this be a bit early for her to be in labor yet? I can't wait until I have more pregnant friends to compare experiences with.
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: August 27/20 + 3
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Team Pink
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: A Banana
Upcoming appointments: AS tomorrow, I'm excited/nervous!
How are you feeling?: Great for the most part! Been having some more minor complaints like acid reflux, mild aches and pains etc., but mentally and energy-wise I'm basically on cloud nine lately.
Rants/Raves: My rave is that I had a nice time on my BFF's bachelorette trip last weekend, and it was definitely an extremely pregnancy-friendly event so that was a relief! Even got a massage, which was awesome. My rant is that my husband put all my clothes from the trip into the wash when I got back yesterday, including several new silk garments that definitely are hand-wash only... I can only be so mad because he does 100% of the laundry in our household and I appreciate that immensely, but I'm really not happy about having to replace those items!
Questions: None this week.
GTKY: I'm not a Disney/Pixar fanatic and don't have kids yet so I don't get exposed to much of it in general... from my childhood it's probably Pocahontas? I always tended to really like the ones that have a bittersweet ending, like that one or The Fox and the Hound or The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: 8/28; 20+ 3
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: pink
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: I’m not sure.
Upcoming appointments: not again until May 6
How are you feeling?:I think I’m getting Braxton Hicks already. I got them early with my daughter but it still wasn’t until like 26-28 weeks. I want to call my OB but I’m sure it’s dehydration.
Rants/Raves: acid reflux— ugh. Also, someone called me late at night, which woke me up, so now I’m awake!
GTKY: What’s your favourite Disney/Pixar movie? Maybe Moana or Beauty and the Beast
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: 20 weeks
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Pink
Upcoming appointments: nothing til 24 weeks
How are you feeling?: mentally good, AS yesterday was normal and cervix length is good. And anterior placenta is blunting movement. first pregnancy without complications maybe? physically my back is giving me the most trouble. trying to stay on top of it as much as possible but its definitely getting worse already.
Rants/Raves: Minneapolis. In the news again.
GTKY: What’s your favourite Disney/Pixar movie? I think the Incredibles 2 is very very well done.
@Kenneylynn3 and @mrspants0809 ugh snow! everything for us today was covered in frost, and i remember seeing snow in the forecast last time i looked. really needing that warm weather to start (and stay!)
@grogu i feel so bad that you're still that sick. this is what i found on previa: Approximately 90 percent of placenta previas identified on ultrasound examination before 20 weeks of gestation resolve before delivery. The more the placenta extends over the internal os, the more likely it is to persist until delivery. Although available data are insufficient to make precise predictions, pooled data suggest that, at 18 to 24 weeks of gestation, when the placenta extends:
•<14 mm over the internal os, there is a very low probability of placenta previa at delivery.
•≥14 to 15 mm but <25 mm over the os, the probability of placenta previa at delivery is approximately 20 percent.
•≥25 mm over the os, the probability of placenta previa at delivery ranges from 40 to 100 percent and is 100 percent at >55 mm.
@pickle-chips my 2 yo is also very needy right now. which is kind of cute, but hopefully he outgrows it soon. and yeah, it would be nice to pee in peace.
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: x
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: ?poor second kid
Upcoming appointments: Friday for AS and ob visit
How are you feeling?: nausea much better and off my doxylamine. Unfortunately fatigue is still terrible and I'm knocked out every few days. Heartburn starting.
Rants/Raves: count me in for needy toddler!
Questions: STM/TTM - how much stuff did you need new for the 2nd baby? Anything that was helpful to buy new vs just reuse? We finally dug out some of the baby stuff from storage and I AM OVERWHELMED
GTKY: What’s your favourite Disney/Pixar movie? Ummm whatever I saw last. But probably Up and Moana?
Estimated Due Date/Weeks + Days: 8/15, 22 + 3 (I have mentally moved my due date to 8/8 because I've been measuring a full week ahead from almost the beginning)
Team Green/Pink/Blue/Finding Out: Team green!
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: a coconut
Upcoming appointments: not until May 7th
How are you feeling?: Great! That second trimester energy is helping me sail through!
Rants/Raves: I booked our Disneyland trip for next month! We had tickets that we weren't able to use before the shut down, so we were able to make reservations before they opened up to general public (they open up for CA residents tomorrow). With 15% capacity and strict social-distancing rules, I'm feeling pretty comfortable with it. I won't be able to go on my favorite rides, but I'm SO EXCITED to take my kids. A year without Disneyland has been too long for them. They're used to going a couple times a year.
GTKY: What’s your favourite Disney/Pixar movie? Haha...where to start? Disney classics: Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Mulan, Aladdin. Modern Disney: Moana, Frozen. Pixar: Up, Toy Story, Coco, Onward, A Bug's Life.
