How's your mood these days? Pretty good as long as I'm not too tired.

Age? Just turned 33, ahh!

How many weeks pg? Almost 27

Midwife or OB? Don't even know at this point.

Home, hospital or birth center? Loosing my mind over this currently. Might just birth under a nice tree in our yard.

Fears/anxiety about having this newborn? Not really birth fears. Just anxiety about finding a place and person to birth with. Also a little fear about having a 17/18 month old and a newborn.

How's the family? (crazy, supportive etc.) All happy and good.

Current symptoms? Nothing really. My Chiro is making everything feel awesome!

Do you have and food cravings? No

How's your mood these days? Somewhat good. I've been totally upset and frustrated though about stuff going on and its making me cry a lot.

Do you prefer wood, tile or carpet flooring? I would love wood as it gives a little. We have tile all over downstairs and its extra hard and cold.

Favorite flower? Dahlia

Name? Amanda

Age? 29

How many weeks pg? 29 weeks preggo

Midwife or OB? OB, but both are at my OB office

Home, hospital or birth center? Hospital. Between insurance being a pain, and already had 2 c-sections, my options are limited. Not 100% sure if I am up for a battle to get what I actually want though. I have a lot else going on.

Fears/anxiety about having this newborn? I am a student, this time around. WILD!

How's the family? (crazy, supportive etc.) Supportive, loving, helpful... all the things I didn't have with my other 2 pregnancies! Smile

Current symptoms? Lots of night-time belly acrobatics, RLP, some BH, out of breath, tired, stomach is squished so I have many small meals a day... the list goes on... it's alright though Smile

Do you have and food cravings? Arby's BLT sandwich, Chinese food, fruit smoothies

How's your mood these days? Alright, for the most part. DH has Asperger's, and I have patience issues sometimes, so it can be stressful when communication styles clash. That definitely brings my mood to a screeching halt... but things are always improving.

Do you prefer wood, tile or carpet flooring? Tile possibly in the bathroom or kitchen, but hardwood floors with huge area rugs. Until I can afford to buy a house, I have whatever an apartment comes with, and just bring my few rugs along with me. Smile

Favorite flower? Yellow/orange/pink roses or tea roses. My middle name is Rose, so it's always kind of been my thing. The ones I like are because they have the best scent. Who cares about the color! Wink

Age? Uhhh... I should know this.... 33

How many weeks pg? 29 weeks

Midwife or OB? OB same as with my daughter

Home, hospital or birth center? Hospital .. my daughter wasn't breathing when she was born, so I was happy to be in a hospital setting last time and am happy to do it again

Fears/anxiety about having this newborn? My only fear is the exhaustion... I was so tired in the first few months with just my daughter and now I have two older (4 and 3) .. so worried about being too tired to clean the house!! (If I am exhausted that is the first thing to go...)

How's the family? (crazy, supportive etc.) Family is good... my daughter is really wanting a boy, she said she needs a prince!! Hope that she is still into dancing by the time the new one is ready to be her partner (assuming this is a boy!)

Current symptoms? Not much... a little bit of heartburn.

Do you have and food cravings? I think because of the heartburn I must be the only pregnant lady who is not at all excited by eating!

How's your mood these days? Pretty good! Hoping I get all the things done before baby arrives so that I have no projects to do once the new one arrives. When I was pregnant the first time our foster little one was in the transition to his mum so it was a huge emotional rollercoaster. Just hoping that the little one we have now stays with us through the first bit because the emotions of having a baby plus the emotions of transitioning a little one was overwhelming!!

Do you prefer wood, tile or carpet flooring? Definitely wood!!

Favorite flower? Marigolds... I've loved them ever since I was little because of their bright bold colour.

How's the family? (crazy, supportive etc.) Very supportive, my husband is working in SC still so is out of town during the week but back in VA on the weekends. Other then that everything is great!

Current symptoms? BH's!!! Heartburn no matter what I eat and not makes it go away Sad

Do you have and food cravings? Not really. I will get a certain craving every once in awhile and that is all I will want until I get it but other then that nope!

How's your mood these days? pretty good.

Do you prefer wood, tile or carpet flooring? Wood but currently have Carpet which I will be upgrading soon!

Favorite flower? I actually hate flowers! I don't like the way they look and hate all flower smells. Hubby use to buy me roses all the time and I despise roses, Smile Now he just sends me edible arrangement's! Much better and tastier Smile

Midwife or OB? OB

Home, hospital or birth center? hospital

Fears/anxiety about having this newborn? just hoping that people don't bombard on me too often while breastfeeding. I would like to limit the amount of visitors that come around for the first couple of weeks.

How's the family? (crazy, supportive etc.) Family is being supportive, but I do get annoyed with my fiance's family at times. Mostly because they are younger and don't listen very well.

Current symptoms? Lots of braxton hicks, tired, back and rib pain, feelings out of breath.

Do you have and food cravings? Mostly those cuties (clementines), salad, and orange sherbert. Oh yeah, and cucumbers with vinegar, salt, and pepper!

How's your mood these days? Mood has been pretty good, just always very tired.

Do you prefer wood, tile or carpet flooring? For myself, carpet. I actually love vacuuming. It calms me down. For everyone else that is over, I prefer wood/linoleum because it never seems like anyone is able to keep messes up off of the floor.

Favorite flower? Lily's.

Midwife or OB? OB, we dont' have CNMW here

Home, hospital or birth center? Hospital, home birth is illigal in Neb and there is only 1 birth center, it's 3 hours away.

Fears/anxiety about having this newborn? I'm with Kasey, 3 kids..3 year old, 2 year old and newborn :EEK:

How's the family? (crazy, supportive etc.) I think we kind of forget I'm preggo sometimes. It's really hard for the kids to understand that they can't jump on my lap or lay on my stomach. Snuggles are getting harder.

Current symptoms? No real symptoms. I tear up more easily than I used to, some days I'm super tired, but the biggest "symptom" is the constant moving...I forgot how much it feels like the movie Alien, trying to get out! ROFL

Do you have and food cravings? Not exactly food cravings but I"ll get hungry at odd hours. Like last night at 10:30 I decided that I HAD to have a bowl of Peanut Butter Cheerios even though at 9:00 I had eaten a handful of Pringles.

How's your mood these days? Depends on the day, actually it depends on the hour....maybe minute. Hmmm, I guess that means I'm having mood swings.

Do you prefer wood, tile or carpet flooring? Depends on the room. I like tile in bathrooms and laundry rooms, wood in kitchens and dining areas, and carpet in bedrooms and living rooms.

Favorite flower? I really don't have a favorite flower. I like the fake flower clips that I put in Lexi's hair LOL!

Midwife or OB? OB

Home, hospital or birth center? Hospital

Fears/anxiety about having this newborn? Some because then they will outnumber us, and when I'm home with all 3 of them alone, I won't have enough arms ha ha.

How's the family? (crazy, supportive etc.) DH is a little stressed about work because a build up is starting in Feb but our girls are doing good!

Current symptoms? Just real tired

Do you have and food cravings? Cherries.

How's your mood these days? It'll be calm and then I'll just get real irritated and be mean to poor DH then feel like crying...ha ha yep typical preggy!

Do you prefer wood, tile or carpet flooring? I like tile if it's actual tile and not the kind that pretty much rolls out and sticks (like what we have) because apparently it can get destroyed easily (that part was here when we moved), But I do like carpet in the bedrooms. Everywhere else I would rather have either wood floor or tile.

Favorite flower? Hmm...I guess my favorite is roses although I like any flower!

Midwife or OB? Neither, I am using my family doctor.

Home, hospital or birth center? Hospital. I am very lucky that my town has a GREAT hospital -- I'm excited to birth there!

Fears/anxiety about having this newborn? Not having enough support in the first few weeks. I am hoping my mother in law and/or sister in law will be able to come stay, but I don't know yet!

How's the family? (crazy, supportive etc.) Great! Very supportive and excited. This is the first boy on my side of the family (I have 4 nieces) and the first baby in my husband's family since his last nephew was born 7 years ago.

Current symptoms? Some heartburn, but it's not bad. Mostly having to pee a lot.

Do you have and food cravings? Not really. Sometimes I'll get a random desire for a random food (the other day it was corn on the cob) but it hasn't been overpowering.

How's your mood these days? Pretty good!

Do you prefer wood, tile or carpet flooring? Wood. We have almost all carpet in our house, though. Sigh.

Favorite flower? Tulip.

Home, hospital or birth center? Hopsital

Fears/anxiety about having this newborn? Surprisingly, no, not right now at least. I'm pretty at peace with anything and everything.

How's the family? (crazy, supportive etc.) All very supportive, this is the first grandchild, so I think everyone's mainly in awe that it's happening!

Current symptoms? Extremely bad congestion that started when the morning sickness left. Also having to pee almost every 30 minutes!

Do you have any food cravings? Nothing that I want consistantly, just when something sounds good I want it then and then I'm done with that craving.

How's your mood these days? Not too bad, although sometimes out of nowhere, I get an attitude with DH. Ooops!!

Do you prefer wood, tile or carpet flooring? Wood! We just finished putting wood laminate throughout our whole house, its great! And by laminate, I dont mean the kind that rolls out, its interlocking pieces.

Favorite flower? I dont really have a favorite. Any that smell good!

Fears/anxiety about having this newborn? Fear that I won't be able to have a successful VBAC and will end up with a repeat C.

Home, hospital or birth center? Homebirth please!

Fears/anxiety about having this newborn? Having to end up in the hospital.

How's the family? (crazy, supportive etc.) Insanity, but that's normal for my family! LOL DH and the girls are super excited and supportive. Mom is supportive in her own hysterical way.

Current symptoms? The baby MOVES all DAY and NIGHT and it hurts sometimes. I can no longer get up from things like the couch without some help. I have sporadic nausea and extreme hunger. (well, at least for me, I'm not used to being hungry all the time!)

Do you have and food cravings? I mostly crave vanilla shakes, or hot coffee. I have more food aversions than cravings.

How's your mood these days? I am a psychotic freak. Enough said lol

Do you prefer wood, tile or carpet flooring? I prefer wood and tile floors for comfort. Carpets gross me out, but they are safer. I am always afraid I will slip on the wood floor or tile and kill myself or the baby or whatever.

Favorite flower? Well, I'm a florist by trade (used to be anyways) so I pretty much love all flowers, just depends on the occasion. If I have to pick one I would say it's the bleeding heart. It's just SO BEAUTIFUL.
