I thought we would combine both our pregnancy and baby check in so we can all she what everybody is up to on the same thread.

Pregnancy:
How far along are you?
Any milestones passed?
Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)?
How are you feeling?
Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc)
Are you wearing maternity clothes yet?

Rainbow Baby:
How old is your Rainbow Baby?
What size clothes is your rainbow baby wearing?
What food/drink is your baby eating/drinking these days?
What is baby up to these days?
Share a picture of baby?

Jacob will be 13 months old this Saturday. It is amazing how fast time flys. He weighs 20 lbs and is in the 25% in weight. He's a little guy but his height is 30 in which is 50%. He is wearing mostly 12 month clothes and 18 month pj's. We just went up to size 4 diapers. He is eating basically the same foods that we eat. The only thing I have found that he doesn't seem to like is pineapples. Spits them out every time. I am still breastfeeding and trying to get him switched to whole milk during the day. I'll keep nursing at night until he is ready to wean. He is trying to learn to walk and can walk with his little walker but hasn't let go and walked on his own yet.

I took these pictures this weekend.



playing in the dog bed which is his favorite thing to do..lol.

Marsi turns 19 months on Friday! She is so huge. At the smallest, she is in 2T and some things are 3T. She is in the 90th + percentile in all of her measurements. She loves chicken right now. The biggest thing she is doing right now is language development. She is starting in on 3 word sentences.

Pregnancy:
How far along are you? 6.2 weeks.

Any milestones passed? I get to see this baby for the first time today!

Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? I have been really hormonal lately, in a mean way, and it seems to be letting up a little. Yesterday and today I've actually been able to smile, laugh, and joke around with DH. I hope my attitude can stay like this. FX!!

How are you feeling? Okay. The nausea hits every now and then but it's no where near as bad as it was with my son so far.

Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) My first appointment is today actually! As far as I know I'm getting "the works"... Sonogram, bloodwork, pap, everything.

Are you wearing maternity clothes yet? No maternity clothes yet but I sport around my pj's 24/7 when I'm at home.

Rainbow Baby: Regan Page
How old is your Rainbow Baby? 5.5 months
What size clothes is your rainbow baby wearing? right now she's mostly in 12 month stuff, with some 9 month and some 18 month! Little booger is 28 inches and about 22 and a half pounds... over 98th percentile for both!
What food/drink is your baby eating/drinking these days? We're still just breastfeeding... she's starting to act interested in food and is getting better at manipulating things with her hands so we'll like start baby led weaning soon.
What is baby up to these days? Regan loves to jump and be upright... she's just starting to teeth a little so we're having some grumpy times, but for the most part she's a sweet, happy baby. We just got back from a week in NY and she travels great! She hates tummy time and has only halfway rolled over from tummy to back, but she is very verbal, has taken a few assisted steps and loves Big Bird.

I'm so excited to be able to respond to both sets of questions!

Pregnancy:
How far along are you? 23w1d
Any milestones passed? 22wk scan with high risk OB last week went great - baby's heart, brain, etc all looked perfect
Any thing new to report (hb, u/s, etc)? high risk OB wants me to have monthly growth scans from now until birth to check blood flow & baby's growth...kind of bums me out that he thinks I need the extra monitoring, but who can argue with 4 additional sneak peeks at my miracle?
How are you feeling? Still a bit nauseous but doing better
Next appointment and what for? (ie regular, u/s, bloodwork, etc) Next Tue is 24wk appt with OB - routine, nothing exciting (I hope)
Are you wearing maternity clothes yet? Yep, broke down I think around 16wks and went to maternity clothes...so much more comfy!

Rainbow Baby:
How old is your Rainbow Baby? Miss Savannah is recently turned 3 1/2...going on 16 I fear her teenage years
What size clothes is your rainbow baby wearing? My tall girl is solidly in size 5 clothes and moving rapidly into size 6 (she's about 43" tall)
What food/drink is your baby eating/drinking these days? She loves fruit (cantaloupe & watermelon are big favs right now), salmon and mac & cheese (not together) are also big favorites
What is baby up to these days? We're finally declaring potty training success (!!) and she's taking both gymnastics & swim, we held ballet & tap classes out as carrot for potty training success and she's already demanding to know when she gets to start those (in Fall)
Share a picture of baby?
Here's Savannah at her school's luau end of year party a couple of weeks ago:


And here's her baby sister @22wk appt:
