    Nikki, could your weight gain be water weight or possibly GD? I had bad water retention issues with my last pregnancy, I gained about 40 pounds all together! I seem to be on track this time, but I am coming up into the GD testing now, which I expect to have again.

    I def have noticed by the end of the day my feet are swollen and it has been really hot these past couple weeks so I'm hoping to maybe just walk extra at night when it's cooler out .. I don't take my GTT for another mth but never had GD with my others ( although I realize it can happen for any pregnancy ) ... My last baby was 9.4 lbs and each baby usually gets bigger for me so not sure if he's just big on top of water weight ...still disappointing I've been so proud of how great I've been doing that it hit me like a ton of bricks : (

    Tuesday update for me...

    Julie & Little Dude

    26w3d

    w/g: 2 lbs

    s/c: Lots of movement from dude! He seems more restive than K was in utero, but he kicks harder when he does kick. Some RLP when getting up and down, belly definitely "popped" out. My boss was on vaca all last week and today she said "Wow, your belly grew a lot in a week!" I neglected to mention that I'd also been eating like a HORSE. LOL.

    Other: Kawika is having a hard time teething. His last front tooth is coming in, 1 molar just broke and another is working its way through. Poor little guy is miserable

    Next d/a: 7/25 for a routine OB
    Julie (28), DH (35)
    DS Kawika 4/25/11
    Due 10/7/12 - blue team!

    Thursday update for me. Been on vaca. Hope you all had a great 4th!

    Taryn & Blue Team

    17w6d (pretty sure the OB got my due date wrong though)

    Weight gain 2 lbs

    Symptoms - pulling/pain when I move too fast and fatigue

    Other: Picked out nursery theme - jungle animals playing sports.

    I have come to believe that the OB got my due date wrong. Baby boy has been measuring 8-9 days big on the last 3 u/s. Based off LMP, my due date was supposed to be on 11/25. After the first u/s they gave me a DD of 12/7. Going off a due date of 12/7, conception date would have been around 3/16, but I got my BFP 3/15. OB refuses to change the due date. Not happy at all with my OB for many other reasons and looking to change.
    Me (24), DH (31), DD (2) Expecting again! EDD 12/7/12. Blue team!
