By some counts I’m in 2nd trimester (13 weeks which is closer to 1/3 of 49 than 14 weeks so I made an executive decision). I never got this far and I’m in that place where 1st tri symptoms are gone (what little I had) but I can’t feel the baby move yet so it’s kinda like… You actually in there bub?
Right now I’m just constantly hungry, but I’ve had that randomly in non-pregnancy before too so it still doesn’t feel real.
Currently waiting on the NIPT results which we should get within another week, then an appointment on the 13th where I suspect we’ll at least get a heartbeat but I don’t think we’re slated for an ultrasound then.
High temptation to get a private ultrasound just to confirm reality again.
I was crabby this morning and then I got a small decaf mocha with almond milk and now I’m in a much better mood. I think I need to work on my diet to carefully allow a little more sugar in within GD guidelines because the crabbiness is likely due to the food restrictions.
The dear incompetent and fumbling scheduler for the clinic the OB I want to try was amazed I knew my due date offhand. My friend. Do not underestimate an IVF patient of course I know the exact dates of everything.
(Seriously thought it took literally 30 min to make an appointment. That was painful)
It is so wild! Mine started at a very early point, like around 22 weeks the first time around. I was constantly leaking through my bras! It was so strange! The second time around I was nursing almost until giving birth anyway.
It sounds like waxing during pregnancy is fine, right? My very cooperative wife waxes my ‘stash for me, and I’m about due. Every professional waxer I’ve seen asks about pregnancy, but internet says it’s OK?
I feel this on a personal level….plus things are harder to reach and see with a belly in the way. It really is a health hazard and I’m just protecting myself? Keeping sharp objects away from the child seems like good advice for the next 7 years or so. Starting now is just good parenting practice?
