Baby Berries due January-March 2022

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] mamas! Sorry for being MIA - I hope you all are well!

Don’t worry about baby size right now. Ultrasounds are very unreliable for size, and babies have growth spurts at different times. Also, big babies are awesome! :smiley: I’ve had 3 so far and they have gotten a pound bigger each time! (My last just shy of 10 pounds).

We have decided on [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] if this baby is indeed a girl. [name_f]Pretty[/name_f] sure she will be [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] <3, she will join siblings [name_m]Abel[/name_m] [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u], [name_f]Olive[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and [name_f]Fern[/name_f] [name_f]Mabel[/name_f].

I’m 24 weeks today!

How is everyone doing!??


[name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] [name_f]Eloise[/name_f]! How gorgeous! Your kids have wonderful names.

I’m officially 3rd trimester now! Glucose results were fine and I have my first bump measurement tomorrow so it will be interesting to see how that looks on the chart, I always measured weeks ahead last time. Generally feeling well but struggling a bit with pelvic and rib pain. (Both ends of the bump!)

How is everyone doing? [name_f]Hope[/name_f] you are all feeling well :heart:

To snowsuit or not to snowsuit??


Today I went to my favorite consignment store and found these 2 super cute snowsuit/buntings.

I am iffy about keeping the hot pink one. It’s a [name_f]Columbia[/name_f] Snuggly [name_f]Bunny[/name_f] bunting in size 0-3 months. It is for sale on the website for $65 right now but I found this one for $9

It does get cold here around 15-35 farenheit most days in [name_u]Jan[/name_u] and Feb but I know I can’t use this in the car seat. Since we are starting with a convertible car seat we won’t be using a stroller right off either - she will be carried in a baby wrap or carrier. I do plan on taking her on daily walks after a few weeks but that may be well in to [name_u]February[/name_u] before we start that (due at the end of Jan)

[name_u]Will[/name_u] this thing get any use or should I return it to let another baby who may be older get more use out of it??

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! I love reading these topics and just saw this. I’d return it, personally. Babies should not wear snowsuits in a wrap/carrier anyway as they will overheat so it probably won’t get much, if any use. Which is a shame as it is so cute!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] all! I was just checking in and wondering how everyone is doing? Most of us should either be in our third or second trimester now. I’ve just entered my third trimester, doing well in general. I do feel absolutely HUGE and it’s nowhere near as big as other pregnant ladies I’ve seen. Feels like a lot can still happen in these last two and a bit months.

I have horrendous pelvic pain and am being referred to physio. Very much hoping that it will help because sometimes it’s almost impossible to move without crying out in pain. I feel bad for my husband trying to sleep haha.

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] @aielbereth ! [name_f]Glad[/name_f] you’re doing well!
Agree feeling very huge now. 8 weeks to go for me (plus or minus a couple?!)
Feeling you on pelvic pain, and the very uncomfortable sleeping. I have found a bit of relief in a very gentle prenatal yoga video, some stretching seems to help even though I thought it would make it worse. Also a support band if I’m going to be walking or on my feet for a while.
@spark those snowsuits are adorable! Did you keep them?

How’s everyone else doing? Xxx

Thank you so much!!! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

@aielbereth @greenleaves [name_m]Ah[/name_m] can’t believe we’re getting so close!! I’m also in my 3rd trimester now too!

[name_f]My[/name_f] main complaint is a pinched nerve causing my outer thigh to be numb. It’s been going on for about a month. Most days I do a decent job of sitting/standing frequently or sitting on a yoga ball… But some days are pretty bad when I let the numbness get too intense before trying to ease it. Then it turns to pain and I’m absolutely miserable for the remainder of the day. Fortunately, getting a good night’s rest temporarily cures the pinched nerve and I wake up feeling fine.

If I didn’t have this symptom, I’d be having an easy-breezy pregnancy :rofl: I’m thankful everything else I’m experiencing is either positive or mildly uncomfortable, but dangit sometimes I just want to rip my leg off :woozy_face:

Whoa, CONGRATULATIONS! :tada::tada::tada::tada:

And congratulations to all the mother berries in this group. I hope you are all having a smooth pregnancy so far. :heart::heart:

Not expecting, just here to give my congratulations.

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] all! [name_m]Just[/name_m] popping back in for an update on how everyone is doing! We recently found out that we are having boy!! :blue_heart: So excited! This little guy is a mover. Has been since we first saw him on an ultrasound and every one since then has been the same. He really likes to make the techs work for it since he moves so much they struggle to get decent ultrasound pics :joy:. And now that he’s big enough for me to feel some of those movements it’s like having a little alien inside me!

@Elle1 - I have the same issue with the pinched nerve making my legs go numb and then becoming painful after awhile! I’ve found that doing a shallow lunge to stretch it out really helps release the muscles and alleviate the pain. It hurts like crazy at first, but once it releases it’s sooo nice! The other thing that has helped immensely is using a foam roller on my thighs at night. [name_m]Just[/name_m] for like 1-2 minutes per leg. Again, it hurts a lot at first but if you get in the habit of doing it every night it’s a game changer!
