Massive congratulations! So happy for you! Really hope this is a sticky bean for you
How are you feeling? Any symptoms started yet or is it too early? X

Thanks! I don't have any major symptoms this early. I feel slightly queasy momentarily when I first wake up or if I wait too long to eat and I'm very,very irritable. It feels like PMS x 1000000! I'm also extremely tired so I've been going to bed super early every night. I am hoping some more promising symptoms (ie sore boobs) kick in soon!

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats, Literati!!!! Hello, 2014!!!!!

This news made my day!

Cloe, I'm so jealous. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes a week ago (wonderful during the holidays by the way) so my diet has done a 180. Mind you my baby shower is in 5 weeks at an Italian restaurant. Wheat pasta? Really? Ugh.

On a better note, I'm not sure if you all recall but I lost my job earlier in the fall and was devastated. Well, it looks like my prayers were answered as I was offered a better job with much better pay and a higher title. They also know I'm 6 1/2 months pregnant and will give me full maternity leave with a temp to cover until I return! God is good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh no, I am so sorry to hear you were diagnosed GD!!! A change in diet is probably the healthiest step you can take for your and your baby's health at this point.
With Lo#1 I wasn't diagnosed with GD, but I have a feeling I will this time. This pregnancy feels so very different and I am overall much heavier than I was with my first. I really don't know what determines whether or not you have GD. Is it really just a matter of bad diet???

I am really excited to hear about your new job offer! This is really amazing!!!

Amber - Sorry to hear you were diagnosed with GB. That would definitely not be fun in pregnancy when all you want to do is indulge a little! I hope you are able to keep it under control so that you and baby are healthy as can be.

That is AMAZING news about your new job offer! That is just terrific! You deserve it so much and I'm so glad that you can even go on maternity leave and have it waiting for you when you return!!

Cloe - GD definitely isn't just a matter of bad diet. A lot of it is genetic factors and I don't think it's anyone's fault for getting it. I hope you don't have GD even though you think you might.

Amber - amazing news about your job!
Sorry to hear about the GD though

Literati - how's the pregnancy going?

I can't believe I'm in the third trimester now! Starting to get tired and fed up already and still have to work until Feb! Thank goodness I only work 2.5 days a week plus DS is starting nursery 2 mornings a week in Jan so that will be a little break.
I'm getting all the bump size comments that really annoyed me last time! Why does everyone have an opinion and want to discuss your size?! It would be acceptable if I wasn't pregnant! Ha ha!
Hope you're all well ladies and organised for Christmas xx

Moolia -

My pregnancy is going well (to my knowledge, anyway). Morning sickness kicked in this past Thursday so now I have all day nausea. Yay! I'm actually quite relieved as I never got a chance to get sick last time.

Wow, I can't believe you're in the 3rd tri already either! Sorry to hear you are so tired out and not wanting to keep working! That is very understandable. Are people commenting on your bump being so "big" or so "small"? It really is unacceptable that people think they can comment on the size of your stomach (or body) when you're pregnant. I wish people would just buzz off! I try to just tell pregnant people that they look great.

I'm definitely looking forward to Christmas! Do you all get any holidays? I get a week and a half off which will be lovely.

Hope everyone had a great holiday! A lot of us are in the home stretch now!!!! IT's crazy how this time has flown. I am on bed rest now as I have been showing signs of pre-eclampsia. Yikes. Hoping I can carry him at LEAST until 35 weeks.

Amber - Yikes! That is scary that you are at risk of pre-eclampsia. Pregnancy sure isn't easy, is it? I hope you are at least getting some enjoyment from bed rest. I always sort of thought that a short amount of bed rest as long as nothing was too serious would be kind of nice. I hope you're watching lots of fluffy tv/movies and maybe getting some reading done if you enjoy that! I'd imagine it's frustrating now being able to get out much. Do you have all your baby stuff already? I certainly hope you can last until at least 35 weeks as well! I hope you and baby stay healthy, safe and sound in these last several weeks.

AFM - As far as I know, things are going well. I had my first u/s last Wednesday and we saw a nice, steady heartbeat and the baby was measuring perfectly. That doesn't stop the anxiety, of course, but I am very thankful for the good news. We should get to hear the heartbeat on the 27th.

How is everyone else doing on this home stretch?
