Updates/Appointments: nada this week. 16w check up with the MWs on 11/11; A/S and next MFM app on 11/30
How are you feeling? Better. Day 2 of no zofran and so far, so good. Had a sugar drop earlier which I forgot about is a fun side effect of pregnancy. Constipation has finally subsided for the most part so hopefully that'll help with not having as much weight gain or being as bloated this time around
Rants/Raves/Randoms: my boobs. They're huge. I hate it. I miss my small, albeit sad, boobs
GTKY: In honor of November, what's your favorite food from Thanksgiving dinner?? I don't like any of them... I don't eat turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes or mashed potatoes. It's probably one of my least favorite holidays and I'm not big on celebrating it due to MIL (she's a holiday only catholic and it drives me crazy)
Updates/Appointments: Nothing until anatomy scan 11/18 and 24 week checkup 12/19. I love this appointment free time.
How are you feeling? Less puking, but more food aversions (like, only one thing sounds remotely good for days at a time) and more physically exhausted by chasing around the 14 mo and the dog.
Rants/Raves/Randoms: Got asked if my toddler was still nursing "a couple times a day." I think we had one day where she only nursed 5 times? Mostly it's a lot more. Which is fine when her latch doesn't suck, but teething is a bitch.
GTKY: In honor of November, what's your favorite food from Thanksgiving dinner?? Usually apple pie, bread with gravy, southern style green beans. None of that sounds good right now though.
Updates/Appointments: A/S Nov 10 and 20wk appt Nov 14.
How are you feeling? Not to bad, other than bleeding again tonight. I'll have to call tomorrow. And the numbness/pain in my right hand
Rants/Raves/Randoms: excited but nervous for the scan.
GTKY: In honor of November, what's your favorite food from Thanksgiving dinner?? How about dessert?! I love love love pecan pie. My favorite. Otherwise at dinner, the turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy, yummy!
Updates/Appointments: my NT came back great. However my Dr wants me to have an MRI on my brain. I'm waking up with headaches daily and all urine and blood tests are coming back clear. So I'm kind of freaking out.
How are you feeling? Besides the headaches? Pretty good.
Rants/Raves/Randoms: everyone in my office now knows, and has been really supportive. I've been able negotiate my contract back to part time so I can have time to rest and catch up on everything else. I feel less stressed already.
GTKY: In honor of November, what's your favorite food from Thanksgiving dinner??
Tough question! My family has some weird recipes including an asparagus dish that sounds disgusting but is really really yummy. Also a stuffing or "meat dressing" recipe my grandmother used to make. And proper southern sweet potato casserole with candied pecans.
Had my monthly midwife appointment. Full NT results came in, risk profile 1/9500, normal is 1/1000, so that was a good update. Baby's heartbeat still in the 150 range. And most excitingly for me, my blood platelets are still above 100, they actually went up a tiny bit.
Anatomy scan Friday! Super excited.
How are you feeling? All the tired again. Not sleeping well.
GTKY: Thanksgiving is already well over here but I love pumpkin pie.
Updates/Appointments: I had an appointment last tuesday. They can NEVER find a heartbeat on the doppler(it happened with #2 until birth), so another ultraultrasound. everything looks good HB 160. still team green.
How are you feeling? Starting to feel better. Some weird things going on that I've never delt with before, my toes going numb.
Rants/Raves/Randoms: this pregnancy is SO different than both of my others it's WEIRD.
GTKY: In honor of November, what's your favorite food from Thanksgiving dinner?? I'm totally looking forward to the turkey!
onesweetworld I love the colors you chose! heisenberg My A/S is right before yours - also counting down! raven sorry for the nausea, hope it lightens up from here on out. sympkin congrats on the great results! lilmonk glad you're able to take some extra time for yourself. I hope the MRI shows that everything is normal with your head. Hopefully the migraines are just some very unpleasant side effect of pregnancy and that they go away soon
Weeks/Due Date: 18w4d (EDD 4/1)
Baby's size: Sweet potato
Updates/Appointments: A/S in 2 weeks from today. 16 week one was pretty thorough but it'll feel reassuring to have a successful and healthy anatomy scan.
How are you feeling? I'm feeling pretty good. Just some foggy brain sometimes, and kind of tired, but over all I don't feel that off. Oh, almost forgot I have a heightened gag reflex. I had to pee so bad I went into the student bathroom and saw someone smeared boogers on the wall and almost threw up. I mean, boogers are gross but that's an overreaction, don't you think body?
Rants/Raves/Randoms: I'm feeling baby move so much! It's awesome! Today H even felt it from the outside (though if you didn't know it could easily feel like a rumble in the stomach). From the inside it's obviously baby and it's so reassuring and crazy and exciting.
GTKY: In honor of November, what's your favorite food from Thanksgiving dinner?? Mashed potatoes and gravy.

Weeks/Due Date: 16w1d
Baby's size: Avocado
Updates/Appointments: Saw the OB yesterday. Baby had a good heartbeat in the 150s and was moving around a lot. A/s and next OB appointment is on 12/5, which seems so far away!
How are you feeling? A lot more energetic. Hungry all the time.
Rants/Raves/Randoms: I feel baby a little bit every couple of days and I love it! Can't wait to feel more.
GTKY: In honor of November, what's your favorite food from Thanksgiving dinner?? Almost everything. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and all the pie- I bring it every year and usually make French silk, pumpkin, caramel apple, and pecan. Yum!
Updates/Appointments: Saw my midwife this week. Heard the heartbeat, pretty uneventful appointment otherwise!
How are you feeling? Pretty good the last few days. But the last time I wrote that here I jinxed myself so I'm actually "feeling terrible".
Rants/Raves/Randoms: I got nothing.
GTKY: In honor of November, what's your favorite food from Thanksgiving dinner?? Thanksgiving is in October here, but I do love vegetarian stuffing and pumpkin/pecan pies. This year we had a spiced pear pie and that was amazing too.
