June 2019 Mamas!

    Things are going well. I seem to finally feel better with almost no nausea. I still feel very full after eating dinner, even if I didn't eat that much. I don't feel baby much at all. I'm betting that I have an anterior placenta this time. I didn't feel DS early, but did feel DD early.

    I'm glad to get back into a routine. Daycare started up again today. I enjoyed the time with the kids, but it's so hard to take them out by myself in this cold weather. We didn't really do a lot during the off days. Mostly just played around our small apartment.

    I unintentionally managed to empty the crib for the next baby. I have been mentioning to DS that I should put sheets on the top bunk of his bed. I finally did on New Year's Eve, and DD decided to have her nap on the lower bunk. She then went to bed on the lower bunk and we have moved out of the crib. My only issue now is that they want to play after bedtime and DD is no longer confined. I caught her yesterday calling "Mom" and she was at the door. I kissed her head and told her to go back to bed. I tried to put her in bed, but she refused. She did sleep in the bed though.

    Now, I only need to worry about potty training. I tried minimally one day, but DD is only 23 months, so I have plenty of time. I'm not sure if I want her trained before or after baby comes.

    @Mrs. Toad: That's great news about the nausea! Interesting about feeling full - I feel like I'm starving all the time and I don't remember being this hungry with my daughter.

    Today is our first day back to work/daycare after about two weeks off. I was getting a little stir crazy so I'm glad to be back.

    When did you potty train your oldest? I think it would be easier to deal with a still-in-diapers toddler than a newly potty trained toddler with a newborn.

    @skinnycow: He trained when she was 10 months. We didn't have to train him for daycare until he was moving up to the three year room - Jan after an Oct birthday. He also was slightly delayed speech and had minimal interest in using the potty.

    DD already asks to go on the potty and is put on the potty by daycare. She already has that interest and is much more verbal than DS. It was easier having two kids in diapers, but I'm already having to take DS to the restroom, so I don't know which I'd prefer. On the other hand, DS is completely restroom independent.

    @Mrs. Toad: My daughter showed signs of readiness around the same age and we procrastinated and trained at 2.5. It clicked super quickly for her and she didn't have accidents at all. Hopefully yours will be the same and it won't be an issue with a baby!

    @skinnycow: Thanks. I'm thinking that it will probably happen before, probably during the Easter break. Daycare is off for five days then.

    Hello! Sorry for my long absence. I take a few weeks off of all social media at the end of each year. I'm finally feeling better too. I haven't been sick in a week (knock on wood) and seem to have found a prenatal I can keep down (my fourth brand to try). A bump has definitely appeared! So I'm trying to learn how to dress myself for this new changing body.

    @foodiebee: This stage is so awkward because you're not obviously pregnant to strangers. People probably just think I have a beer gut

    Glad to hear you're feeling better!

    Hope everyone had a great new year! I can't believe it's 2019...

    While it's great to get back into the swing of things, I totally miss all the down time I had with my babies! The next week and a half at work is killer for me, but after that, should be smooth sailing. But now that I'm back at work, the kids can't start school fast enough (next week thankfully).

    My son is turning 3 in a few days and he's STILL not potty trained! But, he is peeing and pooping on his little potty by himself, just not 100% of the time. I do think he'll be potty trained fully soon enough but will let him take the lead. We've loosened up on potty training after trying boot camp two months back and he ended up holding in #2 for two days! And had major anxiety. I was hoping to have a decent break from diapers between baby #2 and baby #3 but it's cutting close now. I've been doing diapers everyday for the last four and half years if you count my daughter.

    I'm still in that mini bump / bloated phase at 18-19 weeks. I only seem to "pop" if I've had a big meal which isn't often due to nausea. I've been feeling okay but I'm still taking B6+Unisom. I skipped a couple of days during the holidays thinking I was out of the woods completely and paid for it severely.

    Hope you're all doing well mamas!

    I had my 16 week appointment late last week and I had gained five pounds since my 12 week appointment! I had barely put on any weight at this point with my daughter so I'm a little worried I'll gain a lot more this time around.

    Also - I've had several comments at work that my belly has popped. I look clearly pregnant (at 17 weeks). I feel like I'm going to be huge by the end of this!

    @skinnycow: I feel like my weight gain fluctuated a lot throughout my second pregnancy. I gained rapidly some weeks, and then nothing for another week or two. I think it all evens out by the end, I wouldn't worry!

    @skinnycow: I wouldn't worry too much. I started my second pregnancy at a higher weight and ended up at about the same weight as my first. I think it will happen again this time.

    I have no idea on my weight gain. I had an appointment at almost 14 weeks and was only up a few pounds. My next prenatal is at almost 20 weeks. Anatomy scan is next week at 18.5 weeks.

    Hello ladies. Glad to see all the good messages.

    Can someone remove me from the due date list when you have a moment. Sadly at my monthly appointment today - our little guy didn’t have a heartbeat. Our doctor warned us so we weren’t shocked but it is so gut wrenching. He looked so peaceful on the ultrasound that I’ll carry that memory with me forever.

    Best of luck to all of you and I really mean that! - I won’t be on hellobee I don’t think but who knows - this pregnancy wasn’t planned and my DH swears (still even today) we are going to have a healthy beautiful baby girl before I leave my current assignment. There always hope.

    @bhbee: @Sams Mom: @Mrs. Toad: @skinnycow: @foodiebee: @LabradorLover: @crazydoglady: @MamaBear87: @Kaohinani:

    Thank you all for taking the time from your day to think of me, my DH and our little boy.

    I can be honest here that I am crushed - the grief has been nearly overwhelming today. But I know that as time goes on, I’ll learn to handle this loss better. I don’t know what the future holds for me as it relates to a rainbow child but I honestly wish you all the best in your own quests to have healthy babies or to raise adorable kids.

    @MrsJBeeG: There will be easier days and harder days. I hope you and your DH are able to take solace in one another as you shoulder this journey. I can't imagine what you're going through, but I know HB is a wonderful community to lend support whenever you feel you need it.

    How's everyone doing? I can't believe we are all around the halfway mark of pregnancy! I hit 20 weeks yesterday and have my anatomy scan on Friday.

    If you were/are TG, did you opt not to see 3D images of your baby? In my daughter's 3D images, she actually looked like a girl, and my DS totally looked like a boy. I'm trying to avoid any clues yet I'm so curious what the baby looks like, not that the images are always accurate. I know for a lot of babies, you can't really tell with the 3D image either way. Not sure what we'll do on Friday...

    @SupernovaJ: I'm doing well. I hit 18 weeks last Saturday and am having my ultrasound tomorrow. I've never had 3D images of my ultrasound, so I can't say what I'll do.

    I'm looking forward to making sure that everything is ok with this little one.

    @SupernovaJ: Also doing well! I'm 18 weeks and this pregnancy is really flying by. I started feeling distinct kicks a few days ago and now I can feel them from the outside. It's very sporadic, though, and I can usually only feel her when I'm in bed at night.

    I have my anatomy scan tomorrow and am excited to see her looking like a real baby and not just a little blob.

    @skinnycow: @Mrs. Toad: So exciting your utlrasounds are tomorrow. Hoping everything goes smoothly, baby cooperates and is healthy.
