    Name: Katie

    How far along are you? 31 1/2 weeks

    How are your other kids doing? Are they excited?
    DD1 is real excited and impatient (but I'm sure she'll wish LO was back inside me once he's born lol). DD2 doesn't quite understand, but I'm sure she'll be excited a baby lives with us once he's born since she loves babies right now.

    Boy/Girl/Surprise baby? BOY!

    Names picked out? Yes, but we're keeping it a secret until he's born

    What do you have left to get for your new arrival?
    We've pretty much got everything. I want to get him a new mobile for the crib since DD1 has her own and I thought I'd let DD2 keep hers (you know, for when they're older they can have their mobiles to use for their kids). Oh and we need to make sure DS's carseat is going to fit in the back seat with the other two lol because if not then UH OH!

    Any symptoms still sticking around? Nausea off and on. I'm exhausted off and on too but can't sleep. Too much to think about!!!

    How's DH/SO doing with it? DH just takes it one day at a time. He was happy I cleaned the room yesterday, but felt bad that he didn't help.

    Favorite foods at the moment? Granola bars have been my friend lol. Also I'm craving chips but I've been holding off eating too much junk food!

    Anything else you'd like to share?
    I'm getting impatient waiting for him lol. But at the same time I'm nervous about his arrival because I'll be going from 2 to 3 and DH and I will be outnumbered! However, I really want to start cooking and freezing meals already (ha ha weird huh?) just so I can feel like we are fully prepared for him to get here! Also I've been making sure to check for preterm labor signs or anything that seems "unusual". Can't wait to meet the little guy!

    How far along are you?29 weeks

    How are your other kids doing? Are they excited? Lexi is super excited about having a baby and is always talking to and playing with my tummy. Zayne really has no idea what's going on BUT since he's TOTALLY into babies right now I think he'll be thrilled once baby get here

    Boy/Girl/Surprise baby? Boy

    Names picked out? POSSIBLY...I think it's been narrowed down

    What do you have left to get for your new arrival? UMMM...well lets see...currently baby has no bassinet, only 3 pairs of pajamas, and 2 onesies. Oh yes and baby also has a car seat and a crib. So....yeah I need a LOT of clothes and a bassinet. I also still need to get Lexi a new dresser so zayne and baby can share a dresser!

    Any symptoms still sticking around? The exhaustion has returned. Otherwise HORRIBLE heartburn is the only other symptom...oh yes and multiple trips to the bathroom

    How's DH/SO doing with it? Honestly I think he forgets that I'm even PG half the time

    Favorite foods at the moment? At this exact moment I'm loving some Doritos...later I'll be loving some Girls Scout Cookies

    Anything else you'd like to share? I just realized that I only have 11 weeks to get ready for this baby and I have absolutly nothing done. BUT at the same time I literally just thought "I still have 11 weeks, that's pleanty of time"

    Name: Nicole

    How far along are you? 31 wks

    How are your other kids doing? Are they excited? Coleson is and Sarah talks about the baby but she really has no idea what is going on. I think it might take her awhile to adjust once she realizes the baby does not go home and that she has to share.

    Boy/Girl/Surprise baby? Surprise

    Names picked out? Emerson Paul and Emma Nicole

    What do you have left to get for your new arrival? Wash the baby clothes, clean out the nursery and get it ready.

    Any symptoms still sticking around? Tired all the time

    How's DH/SO doing with it? Good, he just goes with the flow but I know he is looking forward to this pregnancy being over (he is great with the kids but does not really enjoy the pregnancy part).

    Favorite foods at the moment? Not really

    Anything else you'd like to share?
    . Looking forward to a quick 9 wks and holding this baby.

    Name: Joy

    How far along are you? 28-29 weeks. What does my ticker say?

    How are your other kids doing? Are they excited? My 15 month old is clueless and driving me batty since he has a cold. My 6 year old is excited but less than he was during the last pregnancy.

    Boy/Girl/Surprise baby? Suprise

    Names picked out? I'm still trying to get through one of our name books and have only make it to 'E' in one gender. Poor kid might not have a name ever...lol. We do know that if its a girl then Rose will be the middle name.

    What do you have left to get for your new arrival? We've got it all. Need to wash the carseat though and move DS2 out of it.

    Any symptoms still sticking around? I've been lucky and not had any really this time. Starting to slow down a little though.

    How's DH/SO doing with it? He's a pro at this point.

    Favorite foods at the moment? I'm not really into anything. Drives DH crazy when he wants me to help pick a place to eat out at.

    Anything else you'd like to share? Just started my 2 night classes this week. Plus I go to chiro appts. 1-2 nights each week. I'm wondering how I'm going to do all this for the next few months. DH is being a trooper getting DS1 to Karate each night and feeding/putting kids to bed.

    How far along are you? 30 weeks today!

    How are your other kids doing? Are they excited? Depends on his mood. Sometimes he acts as if he couldn't care less and others he's trying to give baby a pacifier through my belly button!

    Boy/Girl/Surprise baby? Baby Girl!

    Names picked out? I think we are settled on Avery Elizabeth

    What do you have left to get for your new arrival? Um...she's pretty much set on clothes up to 6 months. We have all the big stuff still from DS. I think the only thing I want to buy is a swing and a high chair when she's a little bit older.

    Any symptoms still sticking around? Major hip pain and exhaustion.

    How's DH/SO doing with it? Ok..he does a good job giving me back rubs at night! And he does help a lot with DS.

    Favorite foods at the moment? Junk unfortunately...but I try to moderate.

    Name: Shelly

    How far along are you? 28w3d

    How are your other kids doing? Are they excited? My 3 year old seems into it. She talks about her baby brother a lot, kisses my belly, talks about being a big sister. Not sure how she'll adjust to the reality, though!

    Boy/Girl/Surprise baby? Boy.

    Names picked out? Not yet.

    What do you have left to get for your new arrival? Will re-use DD's stuff for the most part. Except for several big ticket things - need a new car seat/infant carrier/stroller/stroller system. Her's is outdated so can't use those this time around. I haven't prepared anything yet, though, so I still need to dig out old clothes, my pump/supplies, nursing gear, crib stuff, oh gosh everything.

    Any symptoms still sticking around? Some breathing issues that I seem to get while PG. Leg cramps. Tiredness, as expected.

    How's DH/SO doing with it? Ok. He's had to take on a lot of the work associated with our 3 year old, so he's more tired than usual. But, he's not really complaining, besides in a general way like I do too.

    Favorite foods at the moment?
    None. Pizza, I guess, which is my fav anyway. Don't have much of an appetite, actually.

    Anything else you'd like to share? I'm surprised at how much harder this pregnancy seems to be for me, than the one with my first LO. I was hoping it'd be easier. Oh well!

    How far along are you? 31 weeks

    How are your other kids doing? Are they excited? My girls (ages 5 & 4) are doing well, and are beyond thrilled to have a little baby to help take care of & love on!

    Boy/Girl/Surprise baby?
    Boy (90% sure, based on previous u/s. We have a growth u/s scheduled for next week)

    Names picked out? Elijah Nathaniel

    What do you have left to get for your new arrival?
    My family is throwing a baby shower this weekend. Afterward, we'll know what things we still need to purchase. We still need a stroller, more cloth diapers to add to our stash, and all the toiletries, but the rest is pretty good. We'll be doing laundry for sure!

    Any symptoms still sticking around?
    Some new and excruciating RLP, ankle swelling, the sneeze/pee maneuver, and the basic exhaustion, out of breath, etc... haha nothing major.

    How's DH/SO doing with it?
    He's offered his services as my personal slave, and jumps when I even mention getting myself something. It's a stark contrast to my first husband.... but on the other hand, I have to remind him I'm not on bedrest and I am capable of doing things for myself sometimes.

    Favorite foods at the moment?
    Arby's BLT, anything with protein, fruit, chocolate..

    Anything else you'd like to share?
    My birth plans might be changing, because I'm underwhelmed with the attitude my doctor and hospital have been having with me. Apparently they think bullying a parent into what they want is going to work. I am sure most times, it does, because they act like they are in charge. BWAHAHAHA We shall see about that... I have a very close friend who is a doula/midwife with local connections, and she's going to try to see if I can switch care providers, instead of this crap I'm dealing with. OK /endrant

    How are your other kids doing? Are they excited? This is our first baby!

    Boy/Girl/Surprise baby? Girl!

    Names picked out? Camille Elise

    What do you have left to get for your new arrival? Well, my baby shower is at the end of the month and since this is our first, we're hoping to get most of the neccessities taken care of then. We need crib, car seat, stroller, bassinet (pack and play), and all the other baby stuff. Whatever I dont get from the baby shower, my mom is going to take me shopping for the rest. Plus I'll need to wash all the baby clothes and get everything set up in her room. Basically, we've got her room painted and her dresser and a vanity that we're using for the changing table, and that's it.

    Any symptoms still sticking around? Terrible congestion in the mornings and going to the bathroom every 30 minutes

    How's DH/SO doing with it? He's doing great! He's going to make a great daddy!

    Favorite foods at the moment? Peanut butter cookies with Reese's pieces from our grocery store bakery

    Anything else you'd like to share? I woke up this morning with a sore, scratchy throat.. .I'm hoping it's not going to turn into a cold!

    What do you have left to get for your new arrival? I've got most everything ready to go. I need to get some diapers and do some more organizing, but otherwise everything is ready to go.

    Anything else you'd like to share? I'm terrified of what I'm going to do with an 18 month old and a newborn, and I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has gone by!
