What trimester are you in? I'm 27w,3d so just about starting 3rd
What are your current symptoms/complaints/etc..? Might be TMI but I have to go to the bathroom about 30 minutes after I eat every single time. I guess I get the opposite of pregnancy constipation
Have you met with your midwife yet? What are your appointments like? Yep! They're great! We usually talk for the first 30-40 minutes about questions I have/how I'm feeling/etc. then do the actual prenatal stuff
What are some upcoming pregnancy signs that you are looking forward to? I'm looking forward to the extreme movements where your stomach pops out a ton because baby's stretching its leg, etc and it looks like an alien
Any names picked out? We are leaning towards Violet Marie
Can you share a belly pic? Here's one from Monday

What trimester are you in? Second

What are your current symptoms/complaints/etc..? None a the moment, at least none related to pregnancy.

Any names picked out? Some maybes... I'm so finicky, one minute I love it the next I hate it. The name I'm considering is Felix, and at the moment I'm hating it.

Can you share a belly pic?? I'll have to update with one later on!

What trimester are you in? Second as of this weekend

What are your current symptoms/complaints/etc..? Still feel a little sick off and on, fatigue but otherwise feeling well

What are some upcoming pregnancy signs that you are looking forward to?
Feeling the baby move and having DH and the kids feel movement.

Any names picked out? We are set for a boy but undecided for a girl. There are a few we like and will probably just wait until after s/he is born for a final decision.

Can you share a belly pic??
I haven't taken any yet

What trimester are you in? 2nd
What are your current symptoms/complaints/etc..? back pain has been pretty bad.
Have you met with your midwife yet? What are your appointments like? I've had 2 appointments, and a homevisit for spotting. The appointments are great, like visits with old friends.

Any names picked out? DH and I don't agree...
