    Sarah and Pink Team baby

    27w 2d (My last week here!)

    weight gain: 16lbs at last appointment, haven't weighed since

    Symptoms/Conditions: I'm happy to report that part of my hip pain has been resolved for the most part with my PT, the tight muscles in the joint seem to be relaxed. I was having bad pelvic pain again, especially in the pubic bone area when I would lay down though. Last night it dawned on my that I had some lower back pain with DS when I would sleep and resolved it by wedging a pillow under my belly bump as I slept. I tried it last night and sure enough the pelvic pain was not as bad !

    Other: We had a great weekend and wonderful Mother's Day. We went to Zion National Park and it was packed, but a friend told me about an unmarked trail so we did that and only encounter two other people, so it was perfect. The trail followed a little stream and we saw tadpoles and waded in the water. Then we went and had an awesome lunch, I feel so loved!

    Next appointment: May 16

    s/c : nothing new to report, tired alot but i do get spurts of energy which is great with my crazy kids running around. I feel my belly is bigger than it was with my other pregnancies, belly pain is under control for the most part as long as I take it easy.

    Melinda and Baby Boy Gavin

    24w 1d

    Weight Gain: 10lbs

    Symptoms/ Conditions: Hip pain and pelvic pressure are starting to get to me. It feels like this baby weighs 20 pounds at times!!! I found it's really important to use a pillow in between my knees at night to survive.

    Other: Mothers day wasn't what I had planned. My DH got really drunk the night before. So I was up after only 4 hours of sleep with my DS while the DH slept all day. My DS made me a little flower pot with a picture flower in it. I love it!!!

    Next Appointment: Glucose test 5/19 and OB Appt 5/21

    Christina and Yellow Team baby!

    15w 1d

    Weight gain: still holding at 0 (lol, will change with my next d/a!)

    Symptoms / conditions: nothing too major, some hip pain, results from my beginning-of-pregnancy pap smear show elevated yeast cells (oh goody) so get to start a 7-day tx

    Other: I've been working in the yard but have to go slow - everytime I bend or squat down and stand up I have a major head rush! Oh well. We're moving from Washington State to Wyoming in 2 months and put our house on Craigslist to rent since we haven't been successful in selling it, and had overwhelming response! Yay! So hopefully we will be leaving our house in good hands as we set out on our new adventure.

    N/A: June 4th u/s and June 6th d/a

    13w 6d

    weight gain: 2Ibs

    Symptoms: The morning sickness is getting much better. I have been having mood swings. I just feel like I want to be left alone and then I feel like crying. Only some of the time so its not too bad.

    Other: My first Mothers Day was good. My husband suprised me by buying me one of my favorite book series for the Kindle. I also recieved a few cards so that was a little cool but wierd. lol Felt the baby for the first time last Wednesday at church. I have felt it a few times now but only little flutters here and there.

    If you want to know, but just aren't far enough along then you are actually green team. I had the same confusion when I was about as far along as you are.
