How far along are you?
26 Weeks today!

Next appointment?
We’re at 2 week appointments now! Next one is July 15th.

Baby is a GIRL!

Total weight gain:
I don’t share this anywhere–I’m creeped out by how closely women follow their pregnancy weight gain–it’s NORMAL!

Maternity clothes:
I LIVE in my Motherhood Maternity shorts! SO COMFORTABLE!

Okay, but I have to pee three times a night!

She moves all the time! I love it! She has middle-of-the-night dance parties that make me smile!

Food cravings:
Chocolate, and lots of it! Too bad, I can’t eat caffeine!

Anything make you queasy or sick?

Baby milestone of the week:
Absolutely perfect checkup at the doctor! We had her big ultrasound and got to see her in 3D…such a pretty bebe already!

Labor signs:
NO! Stay away!

Belly button in or out:
In, but it looks like it wants to come out and say “hi” at night. Strange!

Wedding rings on or off:

Happy or moody most of the time:
I’ve been super happy this week!

Looking forward to:
The 4th of July, having 2-week appointments, our baby shower at the end of this month and our childbirth and Boyfriend or Best Friend classes!

How far along are you? 26w 6d – 3rd trimester tomorrow!!

Next appointment? July 8 – GD Test, Blah!

Gender: Team Green (though every single person who has guessed says boy)

Total weight gain: 14 lbs at my last appointment. Wouldn’t be surprised if I gained another 4-6 this appointment.

Maternity clothes: I’m exclusively in maternity pants now, but I can still wear lots of my pre-pregnancy shirts, skirts and dresses!

Sleep: Sleeping great so far. I miss sleeping on my stomach, though πŸ™

Movement: Lots of movement in the AM and PM and after meals/snacking. It also likes to kick me when I’m in boring work meetings. 

Food cravings: Nothing out of the ordinary

Anything make you queasy or sick? Ever since MS faded, I’ve been doing good in this department!

Baby milestone of the week: I am starting to feel a distinct butt or head sticking out of my right side and I think I felt a foot poking out as well. It’s so fun to guess what’s sticking out.

Labor signs: Nothing yet!

Belly button in or out: Still inny, but getting shallower

Wedding rings on or off: Depends on the day. If it’s humid and I’m active, it’s off. But Darling Husband got me a replacement band that’s 1 size bigger that I can wear those days.

Happy or moody most of the time: Ridiculously happy almost all the time. Darling Husband thinks I’m sneaking “uppers”. I’m really feeling great, and I can’t stop thinking about how fortunate I am on so many levels. Also, I get such a kick out of feeling and seeing the baby move. I sit and stare at my belly when I’m home with this stupid grin. It’s just SO cool, I want to soak in every minute!!

Looking forward to: Buying all of the baby gear (probably end of August) and then finding out the sex when the little one is born!

I am not on the listing, but I am team blue due 10/10
How far along are you? 25w 6d 
Next appointment? July 5
Gender: Team Blue
Total weight gain: 17 lbs at my last appointment but I am pretty sure I gained about 20 before having that first appt. 
Maternity clothes: I have been wearing maternity pants since like 9 weeks. I carry my weight in my stomach so I actually had a few pairs on hand from before I was pregnant… Those are actually getting to small for me πŸ™
Sleep: I so miss sleeping on my back or stomach. 
Movement: I finally starting feeling consistant movement only like a week or so ago. Hubby has only felt him 1x and the response was lackluster at best (but that is a whole different post!)
Food cravings: No cravings, but a lot of stuff doesn’t sound good
Anything make you queasy or sick? Um, not that I can think of
Baby milestone of the week: Nothing ?
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: I have a super deep belly button (again, weight in stomach) so it is still in there. I really dont think it will pop out
Wedding rings on or off: On but I have another set of stand-ins for when the time comes
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy most of the time. Tired and I loathe my job so that puts me in more of a crappy mood then the pregnancy I think
Looking forward to: We are starting to paint the nursery tonight! Hubby got me a respirator so I could help out. My shower is a month from today, also looking forward to that.

How far along are you?  27w5d

Next appointment?  July 24th and then I start every 2 weeks

Gender: A beautiful little girl

Total weight gain: No idea – I haven’t been keeping track and or asking the doctor.  As long as she’s happy with my weight gain (which she is) then I’ve been fine.

Maternity clothes: Skirts, jeans, shorts, tanks and underwear.  I’ve been wearing my Lululemon racerback tops A LOT!

Sleep:  Pretty good.  I get up once or twice a night and I wake several times a night to shift from one side to the next.  
Movement: Due to an anterior placenta, I don’t feel her ALL the time, but I definitely feel her regularly, especially when i’m relaxed.

Food cravings:
Cherries and sushi

Anything make you queasy or sick?  

Baby milestone of the week:
I’m pretty sure I felt hiccups for the first time today

Labor signs:
Heck no, and it better stay that way for a while

Belly button in or out:
In, but not as deep as normal

Wedding rings on or off:
My fingers normally swell in the summer due to the heat, so because of that, and the pregnancy, they have been off for a few days now.

Happy or moody most of the time:
Happy for sure!

Looking forward to:
Our next appointment, our furniture to come in so we can work on the nursery, my two baby showers and meeting our little peanut.

Hi Ladies! 

 I’ve been a  long time lurker on the bee. Planned my wedding quietly and been through half this pregnancy quietly due to the fear of lose. Was diagnosed with Graves Disease in the begining and was not sure if my LO was going to make it. We are in the clear now and I’m so tired of doing this alone. Hoping to make some amazing friends here.

How Far along are you: 23 weeks & 3days.Due Oct 28th 2013 right smack in the middle of my Darling Husband annual hunting trip oops! lol  116 day’s to go.

Next Appointment: July 5th At Hospital to finish the Anatomy Scan, baby would not co-operate. July 17th With OB. 

Gender: Beautiful Baby GIRL! Team Pink

Total Weight Gain: About 18lbs mostly in the boobs and belly. Went from a 40D to a 42DDD.

Maternity Clothes: Yuppers, about 7 pairs of shorts, 8 tee’s, 2 capris, 4 tanks. some new underwear and 3 new bras.

Sleep: What sleep? Bought a body pillow and fight with it all night, only to wake up to Darling Husband in a deep full body embrass of said pillow. Little good it’s doing me.

Movement: Sporadically, but often. Laughed out loud a couple times when she’s caught me off guard. It truly is an amazing feeling.

Food Cravings: Sweet Tea, Strawberries OMG Strawberries

 Anything Make You Queasy Or Sick? Not to food anymore thank God, just when she boots me from behind the belly button. Makes me gag!

Baby Milestones of the week: More movement that I can feel and see from the outside

Belly Button In Or Out? Still in but on the verge of coming out.

Wedding Rings On Or Off: Unfortunately they have been off. It’s been Hot and humid and I swell.

Happy Or Moody Most Of The Time: Both 50/50 But it seems like when i’m happy, everyone around me is bitchy, so that makes me bitchy too. You can’t beat em, join em

Looking Forward To: This 7 year wait to meet this little girl being over. My Darling Husband reactions during/after her birth. Baby Shower, Mat Leave and being off work for a year. Been working a long time and so need this break.

@BelleriverBride:  Welcome! We’re always happy to have another mamma on board, and I love seeing other Ontario bees on here. πŸ™‚


How far along are you? 24w 3d. 

 Next appointment? July 17. 

 Gender: Yes. lol. Team green for us. Most people are guessing boy though, since I’m carrying forward and low. Darling Husband might be getting his hopes up a little too much on that. It’s a long 16 weeks to go.

 Total weight gain: 10lbs. I was really slow putting on weight at first, so I’m happy that I’m starting to gain a little.

Maternity clothes: Some. I’m still managing to wear some skirts and tops from before. I needed pants and bras, but otherwise I’m too cheap for a bunch of maternity clothes.
Surprisingly good. Some nights I don’t even wake up having to pee.
Picked up a lot this week. I feel him/her throughout the day now.
Food cravings:
Haven’t really had any this whole pregnancy.
Anything make you queasy or sick?
Chicken and eggs. Also, anything really sweet like icecream.
Baby milestone of the week:
Darling Husband felt him/her move! AND viability. What a good week. πŸ™‚
Labor signs:
Braxton hicks daily, multiple times a day. I just keep telling our LO to stay put. It freaks me out a bit.
Belly button in or out:
Totally flat right now. I have a feeling it’s going to be coming out soon.
Wedding rings on or off:
Off for the last few weeks.
Happy or moody most of the time:
Happy. I’m so totally fascinated by my belly though that I feel like it’s making me a slob at home. I could actually sit for half-an-hour and stare at my belly while LO kicks. (I try not to though, haha).
Looking forward to:
Painting Meatball’s nursery next week, reaching third trimester in a few weeks.

@BelleriverBride:  Welcome to our happy board! Wishing you a healthy rest of your pregnancy!!


@bunnymama:  Ice Cream makes you queezy? I would die!! I love nothing more than a yummy ice cream run on a hot summer night!!


I actually discovered the best late-night snack the other day. We had a bbq last weekend with a bonfire and we had lots of leftover graham crackers, marshmellows and Hershy’s chocolate bars from the s’mores. Well, I discovered that you can assemble a s’more and heat it in the microwave for 10 seconds and get the best treat ever!!!

Here’s my 27 week bump picture. 3rd trimester, here we come!

P.S. – I was a 32 A pre-pregnancy!! Not anymore :
