What is baby's size? A bunch of grapes (how random, I mean a bunch of grapes could be twenty or fifty, lol)
Any appointments this week? Yes, finally! Its on Friday
How are you feeling? OK, was doing better because the spotting stopped but then had it again today after a week without so that was sucky. So glad I'm seeing the OB on Friday
QOTW: what will you miss about being pregnant? Um, absolutely nothing, lol...Probably the kicks although I haven't been feeling a bunch early on with both pregnancies having an anterior placenta. I will say being 39 and pregnant (just turned it in March) has been tough, especially wrangling a very busy toddler
What is baby's size? A water bottle or an ear of corn
Any appointments this week? OB on Thursday
How are you feeling? I'm doing ok. Achy at night and constipated. And irritable. I threatened to throw all the toddler's toys away because I'm done bending down to pick them up constantly.
QOTW: what will you miss about being pregnant? I'll miss the stomach at this point. Big enough to look pregnant, not huge, and the flab left over from last time is stretched out enough to look decent. And the kicks. DH finally felt them last night.
Any appointments this week? No, but I saw OB last week. I have to teach my blood sugars for two weeks and we will discuss it at my next appointment. I take Metformin every day, so last time I didn't do the glucose screening tests and was just referred to an endocrinologist. I think if my tracking is good then she won't refer me, yet.
How are you feeling? I'm ok. I told my OB that I've been depressed, but I declined any medication at this time. I've been feeling a little better emotionally the past few days.
QOTW: what will you miss about being pregnant? I don't think anything. Last time I said the same thing, then I missed it. But, this time it's harder for me. They are a lot easier to care for when they're inside babies, though - I'll miss that.

How far along are you? 23 weeks
What is baby's size? Double mangoes
Any appointments this week? Nope
How are you feeling? Large and exhausted, with hip pain and shortness of breath. I'm excited that I can feel both babies moving, but when I don't feel one as often, I get freaked out. I'm counting down to V-day so I can start purchasing things.
QOTW: what will you miss about being pregnant? Nothing really; I don't pregnant well at all. Since this will be my last pregnancy, I'll likely look back and wonder how the hell I did this with twins while dealing with a toddler, but I'm looking forward to having my 3 babies in the (not too near) future.
Any appointments this week? Nope, nothing til next week.
How are you feeling? Just weird. My body doesn't feel like my own. Also I feel like my butt is growing at the same rate as my belly but my boobs have stayed pretty much the same. All in all it is not a good look and I feel uncomfortable in my own skin and cannot find anything to wear that I feel good in.
QOTW: what will you miss about being pregnant? Everything and nothing. We had such a long journey to get pregnant that it's hard to think about not being pregnant and physically I've felt pretty good. But I'm always anxious about what's going on with baby in there when I can't see her and I'm ready to have my body back to being my own.
Any appointments this week? OB check up on Wednesday!
How are you feeling? Eh. hungry all the time. occasional hip pain but i honestly don't know how much of that is pregnant vs our shitty mattress...
QOTW: what will you miss about being pregnant? I *think* feeling the kicks. I don't know. I hate PGAL brain. I hate the nausea/vomiting. I have some anxiety about the weight gain and seeing the number go up on the scale even though I haven't gained a lot and I *know* it's for a good cause. But I think, mainly bc of the n/v and the PGAL brain, I might be OAD. which, makes me sad because I always wanted 3 kids and now I think I will stick to one. maybe a second in 3-5y but not any time soon. Having a bump is pretty cool, though.
What is baby's size? A GI Joe or an eggplant. I thought GI Joes were a lot smaller than an eggplant but ok.
Any appointments this week? Had my monthly appt this morning which included the GTT and tdap shot. I hope I pass!
How are you feeling? Super tired. I'm ready for bed at like 8 every night. Heartburn is getting worse too.
QOTW: what will you miss about being pregnant? Everything? lol I seem to be in the minority here but I love being pregnant. I loved it with DS too. I mean sure, ms and heartburn and those last few weeks are rough. But feeling those kicks are everything. People in general are nicer to you. And I feel beautiful with my bump. Now, I might be singing a different tune in early August when it's 95 degrees outside and i'm super swollen, but for now I love it 😄

What is baby's size? A box of macaroni and cheese
Any appointments this week? Nope, next week though.
How are you feeling? Meh. My emotions have been all over the place. I go from stressed, to sad, to happy, to mad, to whatever else. I hate it. I plan on talking to my OB about getting on some meds. I hate to take them, but I can't stand being so all over the place and I know it's mostly due to anxiety. Physically, I'm doing ok. Just trying to take it easy but also trying not to sit on my butt all day. I've taken up quilting and I'm working on some nursery projects, and that's helped me both emotionally and physically.
QOTW: what will you miss about being pregnant? The movement and not having to suck in my tummy all the time.
