EDD: 12/5

How many weeks are you? 26! Woot!

How are you feeling? Beside feeling ginormous, pretty good! Walking and adjustments are helping with my back.

When is your next appt and what is it for? Sept 14. Regular check in and will do my GD test that day too.

What are your biggest surprises with this pregnancy? That I didn't have any morning sickness! That was a huge surprise! As is the astronomical weight gain.

What pregnancy side effect are you actually enjoying? I am enjoying my thick, full hair! I will until I start going bald after the baby is born! Wish it would stick around.

When you found out you were pregnant, did you completely eliminate caffeine from your diet? If not, did you limit it? This is a hard one for me, so I thought I would ask and see how you other ladies are doing. I try to only have a cup and a half of coffee a day and water for the rest, but I occassionally will have a soda or something.

What was a highlight from your weekend? Hmmm, just the weekend itself! It didn't go by too fast like they usually do and I had a great time hanging out with my family and friends.

Something good? I'm under 100 days now until my due date!! WOOHOO! And it is a short week as my vacation officially starts on Friday and we leave on Saturday to Florida. Looking forward to it!

Something bad? Nothing really bad right now, besides my severe lack of motivation at work. :confused: Which is probably why I'm sitting here doing this instead of working.

When you found out you were pregnant, did you completely eliminate caffeine from your diet? If not, did you limit it? no, but i don't drink alot anyway. I drink a soda maybe 3x a year. Coffee really turns my stomach this pregnancy.

What was a highlight from your weekend? well I worked all weekend, but we did have an awesome family walk on Sunday night after the hurricane passed. We walked to see the creek and river to see the flooding. It was exciting Smile

Something good? I'm about to make a frosted brownie ice cream cake, and I've only gained 8-10lbs so far depending on the day.

Something bad? I haven't been getting to the gym nearly as much as I'd like

Name: Carrie

EDD: December 13

How many weeks are you? 25

How are you feeling? Great!

When is your next appt and what is it for? End of September...regular check up and then I have to get my GTT. Blah.

What are your biggest surprises with this pregnancy? Just the fact that it happened. Sometimes I still can't believe that I'm having a baby.

What pregnancy side effect are you actually enjoying? I must have "the glow" because people tell me how cute/adorable I am at least 1/2 dozen times a day.

When you found out you were pregnant, did you completely eliminate caffeine from your diet? If not, did you limit it? I didn't eliminate it...but I try to stick to one cup of coffee per day.

What was a highlight from your weekend? Even though it sucked, getting my kitchen all painted.

Something good? We're having a family picnic at our new house this weekend.

Something bad? My mom hit a deer on her way home from helping me paint yesterday Sad

EDD: December 14

How many weeks are you? 24? Is that right?

How are you feeling? Like shipoopy. I just got home from my first day of school and it was utterly exhausting. I also have a skull crammed in my sternum and I can't slouch at all because of it, but that's kind of hard considering the other skull crammed in my pelvis.

When is your next appt and what is it for? Sept 10 checkup and orange drank test.

What are your biggest surprises with this pregnancy? Uh ... the fact that there are TWO!!

What pregnancy side effect are you actually enjoying? Really? Ok, I'll try. Um, I guess it's pretty nice that some of my coworkers have really gone out of their way for me. Like I needed two more chairs in my room so I emailed everyone in my department and two other teachers were in my room with chairs in hand not 5 minutes later.

When you found out you were pregnant, did you completely eliminate caffeine from your diet? If not, did you limit it? Mostly. I have a soda or an iced tea maybe once every 1-3 weeks.

What was a highlight from your weekend? I slept a bunch. My boyfriend had a job interview.

Something good? My boyfriend got the job.

Something bad? My boyfriend's new job has lower pay, a bigger commute, and far more responsibilities than are really ok. I know it's the time to just accept anything and be thankful for work, but it took a lot of stress and talking it out for him/us to decide it was best to take it. I hope it works out ok.

How many weeks are you? 26 wks 2 days

How are you feeling? Not bad, but I tire easily and my belly is feeling so heavy already!

When is your next appt and what is it for? Just a midwife checkup on Sept 20 (my last 4 week appt!!!!)

What are your biggest surprises with this pregnancy? Nothing really! It's been pretty uneventful! Well, aside from finding out it's a girl when I was convinced she was a boy haha

What pregnancy side effect are you actually enjoying? Thicker hair Biggrin good hair days happen much more often now!!

When you found out you were pregnant, did you completely eliminate caffeine from your diet? If not, did you limit it? I tried to totally cut it out, but I snuck a few coffees here and there. Plus, 7-11 slurpees were sometimes the only thing I could stomach, and if they didn't have a caffeine free option I'd have a small coke. Then as I approached the second tri I really started drinking coffee again. Maybe 8 oz four or five mornings a week!

What was a highlight from your weekend? Getting our carseat!!! Sunshine Kids Radian XT on sale!

Something good? Tried prenatal yoga last night and LOVED it. Wish I had started sooner!

Something bad? I would loveeee to have my pre preg energy back just for even one day! So tired Sad

When is your next appt and what is it for? This Thursday for GD test

What are your biggest surprises with this pregnancy? People doting on me and always asking how I'm doing. People offering to carry things for me at school, like I'm not capable of carrying a few books, lol

What pregnancy side effect are you actually enjoying? I am still so fascinated by feeling and seeing her move around in there Smile

When you found out you were pregnant, did you completely eliminate caffeine from your diet? If not, did you limit it? HAHA, no. I had to quit it for a while because of the heartburn but now I can't function without Diet Coke on a daily basis.

What was a highlight from your weekend? I got to see my mom:D

Something good? Only 14 weeks left!

Something bad? Almost everything gives me heartburn again, and if I eat to late at night I always end up throwing up my dinner. And if eat too early I get heartburn from the empty stomach. It's a vicious cycle.

What are your biggest surprises with this pregnancy? Just getting pregnant without fertility help.

What pregnancy side effect are you actually enjoying? My hair and nails are looking amazing

When you found out you were pregnant, did you completely eliminate caffeine from your diet? If not, did you limit it? I totally cut it out. I read that it could cause miscarriage. By the second trimester I stole sips from Dh soda. Yesterday I drank a can of Dr. Pepper. I feel slightly guilty lol

What was a highlight from your weekend? Dh and I were in great moods and just hung out Smile

Something good? My Aunt bought us a new crib, mattress and bedding for Connor and said it was from my Mom Smile So amazing.

How many weeks are you? 23 weeks 1 day

How are you feeling? Doing great. Fatigue is starting to creep back in and my back aches can really take me down some days.

When is your next appt and what is it for? Sept. 6th for a checkup

What are your biggest surprises with this pregnancy? No real surprises thus far.

What pregnancy side effect are you actually enjoying? Bigger boobs...lol

When you found out you were pregnant, did you completely eliminate caffeine from your diet? If not, did you limit it? I couldn't eliminate caffeine with dying. Or so I think. But I have taken drastic measures and have limited to myself to usually one can of Pepsi per day. I now drink orange pop (we call it pop instead of soda here) which doesn't have any caffeine.

What was a highlight from your weekend? Going to a cookout and seeing some family that I haven't seen for a long time. My aunt is getting ready to have heart surgery so she came up from TN so she could see all of us before she had surgery.

Something good? Hopefully we will be getting DH's car back in the next few days.

Something bad? Lots of drama with my step-sons Mom and her BF. Doesn't really affect us directly as she has no contact with Billy but it does affect his little brother which makes my step-son worry. Billy is very tender hearted and worries himself to death about stuff. In this case rightfully so.

What are your biggest surprises with this pregnancy? How awful I feel already.

When you found out you were pregnant, did you completely eliminate caffeine from your diet? If not, did you limit it? No not this time. I drink 1 diet soda/day and don't go over that. That is my "usual" amount anyway so it isn't much of a change.

What was a highlight from your weekend? Surviving hurricane Irene

Something good? I move groups on Friday at work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Something bad? Have some damage that we need to get fixed from the hurricane. Not even sure who to call for it.
