GTKY: Who was your first celebrity crush? (Stolen from S21)
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: sugar glider; he can now yawn, hiccup, and swallow
Upcoming appointments: 5/20 for anatomy scan
How are you feeling?: Sore and tired. Went to the zoo yesterday and ended up walking up and down hills for 6 hours, so I'm beat.
Rants/Raves: Took DS and DH to a boutique ultrasound place over the weekend and DS was so excited to see his baby, and they had a dance battle because the baby was moving around so much
GTKY: Who was your first celebrity crush? Devon Sawa - all my friends were into JTT, so I think I was trying to have better odds.
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: as a fist bump with a newborn thanks for that link @noprobalo
Upcoming appointments: not until 20 weeks in June
How are you feeling?: I've been ok, but have had some rough nausea this morning. Had to run to the bathroom twice. DH had to take me to work because he is working on my car, I road in the back with DS, so that probably has something to do with it.
Rants/Raves: We had a really great Mother's Day weekend, wish we could've seen MIL, but she's moving and had movers in and out. Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's day!
Questions: Nothing right now.
GTKY: Who was your first celebrity crush? (Stolen from S21) Hmm, probably the guy that played Oliver Wood in the HP movies, or Josh Hartnett.
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: a large onion
Upcoming appointments: next week
How are you feeling?: Good, just tired! The weather has gotten really hot, which really takes it out of me. I have to be careful to stay hydrated and not overdo it normally, and extra so with a pregnancy!
Rants/Raves: We did a family day at the beach Friday. It was so fun. My daughter (almost 2) loved it and I loved seeing how much fun she had playing in the water. Then of course I spent too much time that evening looking up beach cottage rentals 😅
GTKY: Who was your first celebrity crush? Child King Arthur from The Sword in the Stone. I thought he was so cute 😆
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: a postcard 😳
Upcoming appointments: My anatomy scan is next Friday 5/21! So excited
How are you feeling?: pretty good. Low back still hurts but what’s new. I’m starting to feel some anxiety as I reach the 20w mark. After my anatomy scan my plan is to choose our child care plan with hubby and get started on the nursery. DH has been working sooo much (he does taxes) that he hasn’t been around much. Next week he will finally slow down!
Rants/Raves: I’ve posted this in a few other threads but- Friday at my appt my midwife found the baby with her hand over my tummy and I got to literally like, cup the baby with my hand. It was soooo cool but I went home after and cried because I was overwhelmed 😂😂
Questions: where are you guys signing up for classes? And what types of classes?
GTKY: Who was your first celebrity crush? (Stolen from S21) Paul walker. I was so crushed when he passed away 😢
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: a Hass avocado 🥑
Upcoming appointments: next Monday for 16w
How are you feeling?: meh. I caught my DD's most recent daycare cold and my throat is feeling scratchy. Normally no big deal, but I gag so easily during pregnancy that the scratchy feeling makes me constantly feel like I'm gagging/going to vomit 😭
Rants/Raves: my mother's day weekend was so awesome! We spent tons of time together just my H, DD and I, and we had dinner on a restaurant patio for the first time in 14ish months. It was fantastic!
Questions: have any of our STM+s had GD before? Just curious what protocol is for others. I had GD with my first and I'm really hoping to avoid it this time 🤞
Leo DiCaprio ala Jack Dawson. Jack, I'll never let go!!!
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is as tall as a grande Starbucks cup.
Upcoming appointments: today! Got to hear baby's heartbeat, which was SO reassuring since I haven't felt movement yet. Everything else is on track.
How are you feeling?: good. Still have boughs of low energy. I think I need more exercise to help with that.
Rants/Raves:I tried to book my glucose test and visit 8 weeks from now, but they can't book out that far in advance. Frustrating because I really only want to stay with my doctor, and hate risking her not being available!
Rave: DS starts soccer today and DD starts tomorrow and everyone is excited for it. I hope it goes well.
GTKY: Who was your first celebrity crush? (Stolen from S21) definitely Zac from Hanson. Can I get an mmmBOP!?
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: baby is size of a artichoke
Upcoming appointments:Anatomy on 5/24, check up 6/2
How are you feeling?: pretty good. The morning nausea has pretty much subsided but I feel it here and there
Rants/Raves: had my appointment Wednesday, heard the heartbeat and then the baby decided to move away. The cool part was I could hear it move around on the doppler.
Questions: none at this time

How are you feeling?: meh same old same old
Rants/Raves: So when scheduling my anatomy ultrasound, my midwife said we should do it with MFM instead of just a regular tech because “insurance will cover it” since I’m advanced maternal age)...and I’m sort of annoyed. Yes I’m 37 but I’ve had two very normal pregnancies in the last 3.5 years, one of which i was 35 for, my NIPT is low risk, AND i had an extra U/S at 14w because of the midgut herniation (which wasn’t an anatomy scan but she took pics of everything and the doc who read it said everything looks perfect). I mean, I guess if something showed up on a “normal” U/S I’d end up with an MFM scan anyway...but I can’t help but feel like it’s a push for $$. My birth center midwives wouldn’t have scheduled this but the hospital midwives did. Once I get through the A/S I’m transferring to the birth center assuming all is well. This stuff annoys me— yes insurance will cover it but this is part of why our healthcare costs are stupid in the US.
GTKY: Who was your first celebrity crush? (Stolen from S21) there was a major rivalry between the 90210 and Saved by the Bell fans when I was in like 3rd grade. I wasn’t allowed to watch 90210 so I was mark paul gosslear all the way.
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: Baby can hear and sense light/size of a cootie catcher
Upcoming appointments: Anatomy scan on June 10 😭😭😭 So far away.
How are you feeling?: Actually really good. It’s been a very nice change!
Rants/Raves: DH epically failed Mother’s Day. He didn’t say anything to me until after I said I hurt I was that he didn’t acknowledge Mother’s Day. No card, no post, no wish, no gift, no sleeping in, no special meal, nothing. DD is 2, she can’t do it in her own and he has to be the one to do it and teach her to do it. So that sucked. Rave was that we met our newest niece this weekend and DD was amazing with her. So gentle and thoughtful, kept asking to hug, hold, and kiss her (hugging and holding only allowed). Made me so excited to see her become a big sister!
GTKY: Who was your first celebrity crush? (Stolen from S21) Aaron Carter (did I give away my age? 🤣)
@noprobalo by yourself, slime. With help, easily!
@madiirosee we had signed up for the newborn essential class for our first, but ended up being induced before I could take the class. I don’t feel like I missed out on anything major, but I’ve also been surrounded by kids and babies since I was 6.
Me: 26 DH: 27

Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of:View-master!
Upcoming appointments:May 17th I've got my anatomy scan and 18th I've got my 20w US follow up with my OB. It was supposed to both be the same day but I guess she's out of the office on the 17th. -_-
How are you feeling?:Great! I'm feeling like myself these days and excited to be almost halfway there!
Rants/Raves:I bought myself a Cricut Explore Air 2 for mothers day (I had the Cricut Joy to start out with) and I cannot wait to be able to do more with it! I have some decor I want to make for the new baby!
Questions:None right now
GTKY: Who was your first celebrity crush? (Stolen from S21)Lance Bass (bahah, never stood a chance!)
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: Cucumber!
Upcoming appointments: Midwife 20 week check-in and anatomy scan on 5/26!!!! I am so excited
How are you feeling?: SEXY! My boobs are huge and I am loving it. I've been definitely showing off the fact that I'm growing a human and have been telling everyone I see that I'm pregnant hahahaha especially the people who work at McDonalds because I feel like I basically live there now with how many breakfast burritos I eat hahahaha
Rants/Raves: None this week which is ODD
Questions: Got nothing this week.
GTKY: Who was your first celebrity crush? (Stolen from S21) Ohhhhhh probably Justin Timberlake? Freddie Prinz Jr?
Interesting Baby Fact/Baby is the size of: I have no idea 🤣🤣🤣 #thirdbabyproblems ??

FTM/STM/TTM+: STM—I have a 5 y/o DD.
Upcoming appointments: June 1st anatomy scan and OB on June 4th. I’ll be getting home health to come out to start another IV in a few days.
How are you feeling?: I feel like all I do is complain on here but having a second HG pregnancy has firmly cemented that this baby will be last. It’s hit or miss; some days I can’t even take a shower and some days I can actually make it through a quick Target run (the small wins). I’m dizzy, severely constipated, have painfully dry skin, am depressed and anxious, and exhausted. I want my body and my life back so bad I’m about to cry right now. Yet, this little girl is worth every single moment of it all.
Rants/Raves: It was my birthday yesterday an my SO did a lot of really nice things.
GTKY: Who was your first celebrity crush? (Stolen from S21) Brandon Boyd, the lead singer of Incubus.
