Introduce yourselves and lets get chatting!

I'm 27+3 today, due may 17th with #1 and it's a BOY!

How are you all feeling? I can tell that I'm coming out of the "honeymoon" trimester... starting to feel heavy, tired, and generally uncomfortable much of the time. Heartburn is atrocious, I get it for hours after every single meal no matter how big or small. I had a peanut butter sandwich for lunch and 5 hours later, I'm still very full and acid-y. But despite all of that, I'm feeling so lucky to be here that I feel bad even complaining. Lol
I figured I would participate in this thread as I will be entering third tri in 1+2! I am thoroughly excited. This is my third baby which will also be my third BOY!

I am not very tall as I am 5 foot even so I feel like my baby and uterus is crushing my lungs and my asthma is really bad along with it! I have horrible back pain and heartburn too. I eat tums like they are candy this baby had better have a ton of hair! Of course I also had the horrendous heartburn last time too and Tommy was bald. LOL. I feel very happy and very blessed and even though I have lost my pap last Thursday I feel very happy knowing he at least got to know about the baby and that we were using his middle name for the baby's middle name. We will be naming him Zachary Herbert.

Do you all have names picked yet and if so what are they?

Aww Proudparent, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Big hugs. I am using my grandfather's name as our son's middle name as he and I were very close. Thinking Elliot for his first name, though we are not 100% yet.

So so sorry for your loss...

We are thinking Elliot James if its a boy, and Adilynn (no middle yet) for a girl. We have a couple names written down for each so that we can really feel it out once we are holding the baby, but those are our favorites for now.

Ooh I like this.

I am 26+6, We are team yellow, expecting our 3rd baby on May 21st, which is coincidentally my 2nd daughters birthday. We are thinking it will be a third girl, but we'll be super excited either way!

The first trimester was miserable- so sick and tired, plus worried after a loss, so I was quite pleased with 2nd trimester until the heartburn came around. It's the worst I've ever had it. I seriously didn't have enough empathy for people suffering with it before. I do now!! I also have SPD, but it's been WAY better than with my 2nd, so I can't complain much at all. Plus, weight gain has been pretty manageable.

So, I'm excited for 3rd trimester. We're just starting to get to the point of realizing it's really happening and soon, it'll be all over!! Ahh!!


My prediction is that baby will arrive on my due date, because my first was a few days early, my 2nd a day late, and I never guess anything right, so I am hoping I am wrong, so this one isn't born on my daughters birthday!!!

I also guess 9 lbs 3 oz, because my other two were 8 lb 8 oz, and 9lb 2 oz. But seriously, they can't get much bigger, right??

Hey ladies! I would love to join! I am due May 8th with our 2nd! A boy this time. We have an almost 19month old daughter who is our world! I am feeling somewhat ok...very different pregnancy than my first. I was more sick this time and have felt pretty sluggish but so happy to be pregnant and feel so blessed! I am predicting and hoping for my site date to be the day! My dad was born on his grandmother's birthday and my brother was born on my grandfather's birthday so it would be fun to carry on tradition as my mom's birthday is May 8th! I am guessing an 8 pounder!

Great thread! I am due May 17th with our first, a little boy! His name is Gavin . We are so excited for him. I am LOVING the beginning of the 3rd trimester. I absolutely hated the 2nd trimester. It was the longest 13 weeks of my life. I have been carrying him VERY low, so although I have had NO heartburn or anything like that, I have had intense pelvic pressure since I was 16 weeks. My cervix is nice and long still, so no worries there... but he spent majority of 2nd tri kicking my cervix daily and he is FINALLY getting big enough to where is he moving up high toward my ribs and even though it feels yucky, I much rather prefer that feeling to the intense pelvic pressure! Sleeping is getting difficult as in I wake up about 4x per night to pee, but I am totally happy with that since the end is coming I just cannot wait to meet my little guy and I am so excited to experience this whole situation, even though I have NOT been a for the last 3 months lol.

Oh, and my predictions are: May 3rd and I think he will be around 7 lbs. First baby, so I have no idea if I make big babies or not

Hey ladies!! I am an early bird I am 26+1 and I officially have bump envy lol. I cannot wait to hold this little girl. But I absolutely can not complain, the first two trimesters have been pretty go with the flow. I am soooo ready to be on maternity leave. This 50+ hours a week stuff is for the birds.

I absolutely love you guys names!! Its nice to see them as many people on the site don't reference until birth (totally understandable). Especially the names that have family ties. We are still groveling over names. I have a few favorites, Lander Aubrey, Brynn Leigh, Leah, and Myer. But my OH is not committed to any...womp womp... :P

We are due May 26 but my predictions would be June 1st. Hopefully naturally water will break. Thinking maybe 21' long and 7'11 lbs.

This is so great! I love seeing all the early 3rds coming out of the woodwork.

MrsGax, hooray - a due date buddy!

MacNYellow - how funny! Elliot was supposed to be my name if I had been a boy so I am a bit attached to it. Love it!

Should I update the first post with our date and weight (and gender for team yellows) guesses so we can look back later and find them?

Hi Ladies!

Great idea for a thread!

This is my first baby, and my due date is May 19 (27 weeks +1 day). We're team yellow, but we think we're having a boy! My guess is that baby will be 7'8 lbs, and will come on May 23.

Reading a lot of your posts makes me feel normal! I felt so wonderful for the first two-third's of 2nd trimester, but now I have heartburn (this seems quite common now!), and I'm starting to get more achy and uncomfortable in general. I'm on sick leave due to an "irritable uterus", so since about 4 weeks ago I get off and on painful contractions in my uterus. It's ruining all my plans to stay active and prepare for the labor of labor! I can't even go for a walk as it's sets the uterus off into "angry mode". And suddenly lately I am craving sweets like no other! Sigh....

Excited to be in third tri, but still have a good chunk of the big "to do list" to get through. Lots of it I find is fun stuff though .
