What is baby's size? An eggplant (seems weird since eggplants vary a lot in size but ok)
Any appointments this week? Nope, we had an OB appointment and growth u/s last week and all was well so we're cleared for 4 more weeks.
How are you feeling? Not too bad. I've been having some sciatic nerve pain in my lower back if I'm on my feet too long but other than that I feel good.
Vents/Questions/Concerns: I'm just really anxious to get the nursery started because we've started receiving some gifts from our registry and I have nowhere to put things. MH keeps putting it off but he promised me he will paint when we get back from vacation next week.
Qotw: Are you doing anything special for Mother's Day? We're just taking my mil out to brunch. My own mom will be out of town but before she left she gave me a mother's day card and a box of chocolates. My first ever mother's day gift, it was so sweet!
How are you feeling? Like a hot mess. The weekend was crappy, felt lousy with stomach pain and then headache. I was worried with the headache because it wasn't going away but we do have a BP monitor at home and my reading was fine so I could stop being paranoid about preeclampsia. My right butt cheek is killing me (sciatica I'm assuming) so I'm walking weird and that has been about a week. Good times!
Vents/Questions/Concerns: I think I did enough complaining in the previous question
Qotw: Are you doing anything special for Mother's Day? So far my mother's day have been like all the rest before DD. Running here there and everywhere seeing my Mom and MIL. ugh

How far along are you? 25 weeks tomorrow.
What is baby's size? A popped bag of microwave popcorn.
Any appointments this week? Nope, not until the end of the month.
How are you feeling? Pretty good, just tired. We worked on organization, moving furniture, and cleaning all weekend. The office is now officially the nursery!
Vents/Questions/Concerns: Nothing at this time.
Qotw: Are you doing anything special for Mother's Day? We are combining a couple birthdays and mothers day celebrations with family on Saturday night. I'm not sure if MH is planning anything for just me on Sunday, but last two years, we've done brunch.
Any appointments this week? No but up to one every two weeks now.
How are you feeling? Pretty good, some days I have a ton of energy, others I can barely get to work. It is so weird, I don't remember this from my last pregnancy.
Vents/Questions/Concerns: My in-laws are still not understanding that they should not come before we have the baby. I have now been in the room twice when MH explained this to them on the phone, but they have decided that this is something they want to do. I think I am going to have to call my mother-in-law and tell her I will not let them in the house if they show up. They are nice people but too set in their ways and need constant entertainment. Plus, they are useless in terms of watching DD. They just want to play with her and never change diapers, think of feeding her, or let us get her to bed. It would not be helpful having them around at all.
Qotw: Are you doing anything special for Mother's Day? Not sure, I keep forgetting when it is. Maybe go to brunch or to the beach. I am just not into holidays that aren't Christmas or New Year's.
Any appointments this week? nope not til end of the month
How are you feeling? tired. got so tired this weekend, it hasn't gone away despite being off from work and sleeping. I took a 3+ hr nap on Sunday after being awake for only 3 hours!
Vents/Questions/Concerns: nothing really going on over here
Qotw: Are you doing anything special for Mother's Day? I have to work, but even if I didn't, I don't think so. I think it's going to be a shitty day for me because I *should* be celebrating with a 3 month old in my arms, but instead I'm not. And while I do think I'm already a mother, from loss baby and from this baby, I don't think my DH thinks of it that way - I think he's very much separated himself and removed from loss baby at this point, with new baby coming, so I don't think he realizes how much this mother's day will affect me. I could be wrong, but I don't think he will realize. Oh well.
What is baby's size? A bowling pin, or a butternut squash
Any appointments this week? Nope
How are you feeling? Tired, short of breath, achy. Starting to get some BH.
Vents/Questions/Concerns: Baby girl is so active in there, I love it. I don't remember DS being as active, he was pretty chill in the womb.
Qotw: Are you doing anything special for Mother's Day? I told H I want to go to either the aquarium or the zoo on Saturday and then out to dinner, so I think that's what we'll do. Sunday who knows. I'll probably have H take DS to do the grocery shopping and maybe I'll go get a pedicure or something.
How far along are you? 27+4 What is baby's size? lantern lol Any appointments this week? Nope How are you feeling? Exhausted amd huge like my stomach can't stretch any more. And rib pain that extends to my back. Vents/Questions/Concerns: failed my 1 hr glucose screen. Don't want to do the 3 hour so I'm taking my blood sugar 4x a day starting tomorrow for 2 weeks. I gained 3 lbs in a week and feel tired and bloated. I feel like something is off :/ Qotw: Are you doing anything special for Mother's Day? Bbq at our house with our families
yoshijo28, sorry about failing the 1 hr, I did also with my first and had to take the 3 hr ugh. I didn't realize you could opt to try the 2 week method, hope it goes ok for you. My stomach also feels huge and so uncomfortable ☹️
addymac ((hugs)) I felt the same way last year and asked MH not to do anything but did do something for Father's day for him since our daughter was actually born by then. He was very nice about it all even though he felt differently. He asked if.i wanted to do anything this year before making plans which I appreciated
@yoshie28 yep. I am at the point where I am going to have to say something myself which I had hoped to avoid. I get they are excited but WTF!
Any appointments this week? Today! Regular appointment plus the glucose test! Fun fun
How are you feeling? No too bad - tired, but getting the nesting feeling!
Vents/Questions/Concerns: none really -- my BP has been great! I am a little concerned about glucose. I did fine last pregnancy but I have a feeling that I won't this time!
Qotw: Are you doing anything special for Mother's Day? Out to breakfast is pretty standard! Massage/spa day. My hubby said he would give me the day to relax, but I am thinking I want to hang out as a family! So I need to figure it what I want to do - weather will be crappy so idk!

How are you feeling? Tired but alright. My c section scar is bothering me, but there's not much that can be done.
Vents/Questions/Concerns: I need this weather to clear up so we can get some painting done!
Qotw: Are you doing anything special for Mother's Day? I thought we were just going to relax at home but DH is taking us out for a low key brunch and I'm getting a prenatal massage, foot rub, and nap! I'm excited
