How are you sleeping? I've resorted to taking some sleeping pills in order to get sleep. Last week I had really bad insomnia. The pills are working.

How are you feeling?Very sluggish & sore from my fall
Is baby moving a lot?Yes he is. He is way more active than my first son ever was in the womb.
Moving more in the daytime or nighttime?I honestly feel him move all day long. There are hardly times when he isn't moving.
How are you sleeping?Sleeping isn't going too well. I'm totally uncomfortable. I usually fall asleep early and wake up really early too. Those in combination with the crazy pregnancy dreams don't leave me well-rested.
Favorite foods right now?Rainbow sherbert, salad, fruit. Pretty much anything light because I seem to get full so quick.
Favorite part of being pregnant?This may sound stingy, but I love having baby to myself lol. With my first son and my age, people pretty much tried to over run what I was saying and it seemed like we never had quality time.
Least favorite part?Not feeling as energetic and being in pain, but I'm glad baby is growing fine.
What are you most looking forward to in the next month? Looking forward to getting everything assembled and put together for the baby's arrival. Also, this isn't next month, but April 5th is tentatively my last day of work & I am so looking forward to that day.

Is baby moving a lot? Not always, but he does get active when I'm relaxing in the evenings.
Moving more in the daytime or nighttime? Nighttime, but I wonder if I'm just not noticing it as much during the day.
How are you sleeping? Okay, I guess. I wake up a lot and it's hard to get comfy, but I'm still sleeping okay overall.
Favorite foods right now? Oranges, orange juice and milk. I guess I need the calcium!
Favorite part of being pregnant? Feeling the baby kick.
Least favorite part? Not being able to bend, or do a lot of things I'd like to do. Fatigue and clothes not fitting at all.

How are you feeling? Not great -- I feel really slow, awkward and uncomfortable
Is baby moving a lot? YES! He's very busy.
Moving more in the daytime or nighttime? More in the night recently.
How are you sleeping? Badly. I woke up at 2:30 this morning and couldn't go back to sleep until around 5. I can't get comfortable -- I'm having BH contractions almost every time I move in bed and I keep having to get up to pee or get something to eat. Ugh.
Favorite foods right now? Ice cream!
Favorite part of being pregnant? My giant belly (as inconvenient as it is), feeling baby move
Least favorite part? Um ... everything else.
What are you most looking forward to in the next month? Getting closer and closer to having this baby on the OUTSIDE!

How are you feeling?like cr@p... my back is absolutely killing me - can hardly walk these days, I sleep badly, have had a cold/sore throat for what feels like weeks now... blah...

What are you most looking forward to in the next month? Hoping, hoping, hoping that baby will come a week or two early - she's already well over 6 lbs - and the thought of this back pain for another 5-6 weeks is NOT good...

How far along are you? 35 weeks, today
How are you feeling? Kind of miserable sometimes, and awesome other times. Aren't we all, somewhat? Blum 3
Is baby moving a lot? Yep. He was super active, slowed down a lot (probably from being squished), but now he's getting more and more cramped-feeling.
Moving more in the daytime or nighttime? Mostly pretty late at night, just before bedtime. Lately, he's getting more active first thing in the morning too.
How are you sleeping? I sometimes have waves of exhaustion, alternating with insomnia, which is really conflicting. On the other hand, I tend to get back to sleep after my multiple night-time restroom trips.
Favorite foods right now? Fruit, chicken, salty stuff, chocolate... pretty much anything that doesn't smell NASTY. Lately, frosted mini wheats, cooking brown rice, and other grain products smell really gross to me.
Favorite part of being pregnant? I'm just really trying to enjoy myself this last pregnancy, through all the end-of-pregnancy junk.
Least favorite part? Hip/back pain, exhaustion, electric stabbing feeling in some very sensitive lady spots.. lol
What are you most looking forward to in the next month? I have 28 days left til my scheduled delivery, so I would count that.

How are you feeling? Very tired. This pg is much more exhausting than when I was carrying DD.

Is baby moving a lot? Yes! Day and at night, too. He needs to take a chill pill.

Moving more in the daytime or nighttime? Oops - see above.

How are you sleeping? Eh. Not great but not too bad. DD was not sleeping through the night for a long time, which made things tough. She's been STTN for the past few days, so I hope she's back to that.

Favorite foods right now? None. I don't feel like eating many times. I have a lot of tummy discomfort (on iron 2x/day) and heartburn. Pizza, I guess.

Favorite part of being pregnant? Knowing there's a LO inside.

Least favorite part? The aches, pains, and fatigue.

What are you most looking forward to in the next month? Getting things in order, at home and at work, so that I am more prepared for his arrival. I am so stressed out right now.

How are you feeling? Really pregnant. Zero energy, some days it's difficult to get full breaths, aches and pains, etc.
Is baby moving a lot? Yep!
Moving more in the daytime or nighttime? Neither... pretty constant movement day or night
How are you sleeping? Decent. I think I'd sleep really well if I never had to wake up to pee, but that isn't gonna happen!!
Favorite foods right now?Anything-- I'm liking food way too much
Favorite part of being pregnant? Feeling the baby move and the anticipation of what's to come!
Least favorite part? Ummm... mostly everything else. This pregnancy is so different from my first, in terms of my perspective about it. With my daughter, I LOVED being pregnant and honestly felt a little sad when it was over. Though things are very similar this time around, physically, I find myself having very little patience for it all this time around. I just CANNOT WAIT to give birth so I can get back to feeling somewhat normal. I'm thinking the 3 year old has a whole lot to do with that, though. Wink Last time when I felt exhausted I had the freedom to nap or do whatever I wanted. This time, I'm constantly plagued by feelings of guilt because I'm not giving my daughter the attention she needs. I feel like I'm parenting at 50% because I just don't have the energy to give it any more than that. Wow. That was probably a longer answer to this question than anyone wanted to know!!
What are you most looking forward to in the next month? Ummm.... well, we're going to Breckenridge, CO for a ski trip for my MIL's 60th birthday next week. Of course, everyone will be skiing/drinking/hot-tubbing but me, so I'm trying really hard to not be a bit bitter about it. I will basically be spending those 4 days by myself, reading and playing on the computer. Woohoo. I'm just trying to remind myself that it'll be a nice break from our DD, but I can't help but feel like I'm majorly missing out on all the fun. Oh well. Other than that, I'm looking forward to touring the maternity center on the 17th and a good college friend is coming to visit the week after that!

Oh, and on Wednesday my partner and I got married... I think the marriage commisioner wasn't used to having three preschoolers hanging onto the bride and groom because she was out of here within 5 minutes of the end of the ceremony!!!!! It was fun, but I have to admit that I could have done without a little one in bed with us every night this week. Guess that is why people get married before kids!!!
