    1) Name: Elizabeth

    2) EDD: April 25th

    3) What are measuring? Ahead, Behind, right on target? I'm always a week or 2 behind. No biggie though.

    4) Do you have a guess when the baby will be here? I think May 4th.

    5) Will you have a baby pool where people try to guess the baby's info? I think I might get my family to do this just for fun. We did one at work for my ex-coworker, it was fun. Someone at my office guessed the sex, the weight off by only an ounce and the time off by only 10 minutes. Pretty amazing.

    6) Have you packed a hospital bag? Nope

    7) What is going in your hospital bag? For you? For baby? For DH? Hoping to get some answers from some BTDT moms. I have no clue. For the baby, probably just 2 outfits, one tiny one and one slightly bigger one in case for some reason he is over 8lbs. The hospital should have everything else right? For me, a change of clothes, nursing tops, pony tail holders, fuzzy socks, a sweater, not sure what else. DH, a change of clothes and a swimsuit maybe in case he wants to jump in the shower to help me labor.

    8 ) Hungry for anything in particular these days? Peanut Butter and chocolate, even better if they are together!

    9) What is one thing you want to do before the baby arrives and newborn sleep deprivation sets in? I want to go to a movie and finish a couple of my architecture tests.

    10) Will you photograph or video tape your birth? I would like some photos of the baby when he's first born and me holding him, but not continuous taping or anything or any crotch views.

    11) Any St. Patti's day plans? We live a block away from Greenville Avenue in Dallas where they hold the parade. It's nuts around that time, and we won't be able to drive anywhere, so we are having DH's wild friends come over for drinks and BBQ! I will skip the parade though. The crowds are too much.

    12) Anyone taking a spring break? Ha, I wish. My bosses are though. One of my bosses is a professor so they are taking a week off! I can't wait to have them gone! Haha.

    13) Any other March plans? Well its my birthday month, so hopefully some dinner plans! And my friend shower is on the 23rd!

    14) Seen any good movies lately? We saw Skyfall, I wasn't a fan. We rented "Safety not guaranteed," it was a weird one, but I liked it.

    15) Anything else you want to add? Staying home sick is dangerous for me, I did too much online shopping today. Bought some cloth dipes and nursing friendly tops!

    Yes, Elizabeth, online shopping will get you!!! I don't have to stay at home for it though, I sit in front of a computer all day at work!

    Name: Joan

    2) EDD: April 6th


    3) What are measuring? Ahead, Behind, right on target? I'm always a week ahead, just like I was with DS.

    4) Do you have a guess when the baby will be here? I keep thinking Apr 5, though I keep telling people I'm sure I won't go at all early.

    5) Will you have a baby pool where people try to guess the baby's info? My friend had the ladies at my shower fill out cards with guesses on it. I got a LOT of guesses for Apr 4!

    6) Have you packed a hospital bag? I've started it.

    7) What is going in your hospital bag? For you? For baby? For DH? For me? I've got an eye mask, back massager, nursing tanks, robe, slippers, gonna add some gatorades, a few mementos for comfort, mp3 player and headphones, tablet or laptop. For baby? Some clothes for coming home and for pictures, one of the blankets her nana knitted for her. For DH? Snacks.

    8 ) Hungry for anything in particular these days? I had a taste for noodle soup the other day, but usually no. I'm running out of room in there.

    9) What is one thing you want to do before the baby arrives and newborn sleep deprivation sets in? Nothing in particular. I'm ready to meet her.

    10) Will you photograph or video tape your birth? I hope to get some pics, but I'm not sure who'd take them. DH is not great with the camera and will probably be freaking out. No video though and NO GRAPHIC SHOTS.

    11) Any St. Patti's day plans? I'll probably make corned beef and cabbage at home.

    12) Anyone taking a spring break? Oh no. Hubby will be off for a week since he's a student. Hopefully, he'll get some stuff done around the house.

    13) Any other March plans? DS's soccer season starts Mar 9 and he's got a sibling class at the hospital Mar 16. Other than that, just getting the rest of the baby stuff ready.

    14) Seen any good movies lately? No, I go to bed with DS, so no time for movies.

    15) Anything else you want to add? Woke up with a sore throat this morning, hoping that turns into nothing. I'm also starting to get nervous about wrapping stuff up at work even though I have 4 more weeks. Oh, and only 4 more weeks of work, WHOO HOO!!!

    1) Name: Jill

    2) EDD: April 17th

    3) What are measuring? Ahead, Behind, right on target? Right on target

    4) Do you have a guess when the baby will be here? Me, not really. The hubby thinks she will be early, if she takes after my DS she will be late. But...if I can't get some of this stress off my shoulders, i'll probably go early. Who knows!

    5) Will you have a baby pool where people try to guess the baby's info? No, DH has joked about doing one though.

    6) Have you packed a hospital bag? Not yet. I'm thinking once I hit 36 weeks, I will get one ready.

    7) What is going in your hospital bag? For you? For baby? For DH? A change of clothes for me(undies, socks, bra, all that good stuff), travel sizes of shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, shaving cream, my toothbrush. Brush, maybe some hair ties even though i've cut my hair so I might not need them. Probably a change of clothes for DH. Not sure yet for the baby as I think my mom will be buying the coming home outfit once she is born so she can size it better. So maybe a sleeper or two. We'll use whatever the hospital provides. We will also be bringing my Kindle for me to read and DH will be bringing his laptop to work on school work during down time since he will be starting another session of classes within a couple of weeks of her being born.

    8 ) Hungry for anything in particular these days? Fruit, steak, and chinese...not all together thankfully. lol

    9) What is one thing you want to do before the baby arrives and newborn sleep deprivation sets in? Finish getting the house cleaned so all we need to do is spot cleaning for a little while. Would love to have the house stocked with food essentials, so we don't have to do big shopping trips for a few weeks at least. Only problem with that is we don't have a big freezer so i'm limited in that aspect.

    10) Will you photograph or video tape your birth? No. I'm sure the hubby will take a few pics before and then definitely a bunch after, but thats it,

    11) Any St. Patti's day plans? My baby shower is that day at 1.

    12) Anyone taking a spring break? Nope. Just the kids from school. Would love too, but money won't permit it.

    13) Any other March plans? Meeting a friend of mine for lunch this Sunday, and then other than that taking it day by day.

    14) Seen any good movies lately? No, really want to see Identity Theft and there is one more coming out this month that we want to see but I can't remember the name of it. So maybe one day while the kids are in school DH and I will go see one, but we'll see.

    15) Anything else you want to add?

    1) Name: Jessica

    2) EDD: April 5th

    3) What are measuring? Ahead, Behind, right on target? They haven't said anything to me the last two appts, but the one before THAT I was measuring 3 or 4 days ahead.

    4) Do you have a guess when the baby will be here? I'm sure, knowing my luck, she'll come late. But I'm seriously hoping she comes early. Like March-early. Not NOW, but I'd definitely be happy with 37 weeks.

    5) Will you have a baby pool where people try to guess the baby's info? Nope

    6) Have you packed a hospital bag? Haha, no. I'm sure I'll be hollering for DH to grab stuff as we run out the door.

    7) What is going in your hospital bag? For you? For baby? For DH? I have no idea. I know I want my phone and probably my laptop. The baby will have some clothes as will DH.

    8 ) Hungry for anything in particular these days? I can't stop eating Mexican. It hurts my stomach AND if I go to sleep soon after eating it, I have really vivid BAD dreams. DH won't let me eat Mexican for dinner anymore LOL

    9) What is one thing you want to do before the baby arrives and newborn sleep deprivation sets in? Get the house clean. I'd love to make some meals so we can just heat them up...and we JUST bought a deep freezer, so that would be possible.. except that I lack motivation.

    10) Will you photograph or video tape your birth? I'd like to have some pics, but not sure who's going to take them. I really want my mom there, but unless we have a set "date" to induce or something, she won't be. She lives three hours away and she said she'll come down for a short time to meet the baby and whatnot, but..she works two jobs and can't just up and leave - which I understand. It'd be weird with DH's mom in there taking pics of boobies and such, so...we'll see.

    11) Any St. Patti's day plans? Nope

    12) Anyone taking a spring break? DH is off from school next week, yay!!!!

    13) Any other March plans? Hopefully having this baby. I have to finish getting my relief trained - she's not the um..quickest person ever.

    14) Seen any good movies lately? Nah, I'm not a big movie watcher.

    15) Anything else you want to add? I have to pee.

    So cute/funny that your hubby helps you with the questions Elizabeth!


    1) Name: Vicki

    2) EDD: Apr 20/22 (my calculation/midwife calculation)

    3) What are measuring? Ahead, Behind, right on target? I was a bit ahead this past time but generally right on target.

    4) Do you have a guess when the baby will be here? Probably between the 22nd and the 27th.

    5) Will you have a baby pool where people try to guess the baby's info? I actually mentioned doing that at my shower that's in a few weeks. I've never done it before but it sounds fun, especially since we don't know the gender.

    6) Have you packed a hospital bag? Nope! Probably do that next month.

    7) What is going in your hospital bag? For you? For baby? For DH? I have to bring a specific list of stuff for the birthing center - some prescription meds and random things. I'll probably bring my laptop and birthing clothes, my sports bra for being in the tub, MATERNITY clothes for afterward NOT a normal t-shirt like last time that I looked SO fat in lol!, toiletries, etc. For the baby - basic things, I'll have to bring a girl outfit and boy outfit, g/n swaddling blanket, hat, socks, diapers etc. For hubby - change of clothes, swim trunks, books maybe...

    8 ) Hungry for anything in particular these days? I was craving salty stuff tonight... sweet stuff usually makes me feel ill. I've been feeling more yucky again lately like I did in the first trimester and it's annoying because even if I eat healthy stuff I still feel that way.

    9) What is one thing you want to do before the baby arrives and newborn sleep deprivation sets in? Only one thing? haha! I want to get a massage!

    10) Will you photograph or video tape your birth? I just asked DH about this one - I thought I remembered him saying something about it being cool if we had a video of one of my births. I told him that and he said he said nothing of the sort lol! My midwife took some pretty graphic photos last time and I don't mind something like that again for our eyes only. A video is sort of a different ball game though; not sure I want live action tv of me pushing out a baby...

    11) Any St. Patti's day plans? DH is in a 5k race the day before and I think we might have some people over for dinner on the actual day... but that doesn't have much to do w/ the holiday; we don't really celebrate it.

    12) Anyone taking a spring break? What's that?

    13) Any other March plans? Lots! I feel like all of our weekends are getting filled up already. My shower, dinners, races, etc. Plus, I have made it a goal to get the kids' room done this month which includes getting/setting up a bunk bed, moving some furniture around and consolidating all of their toys and combining their clothes in a new dresser so we can clear out the nursery for the baby. THEN working on getting baby clothes and stuff out and setting up the nursery so it's ready for baby!

    14) Seen any good movies lately? We've been going through the Star Wars movies w/ our son. We've watched the first two new ones and we have four more to go.
    Oh and we watched this movie... The Switch w/ Jennifer Aniston which was... entertaining at least. I just haven't seen any movies lately that have looked good enough to see.


    15) Anything else you want to add? I'm hoping my energy level stays where I can live with it and get everything done that needs to be done. honestly the nursery doesn't have to be perfect before baby comes but I do need to move the kids beforehand and get them adjusted to sharing a room before another huge change happens. And trying to appreciate my pregnancy and remember that it's SO much easier to take care of them inside of you than outside of you!!

    1) Name: Rebecca

    2) EDD: April 22

    3) What are measuring? Ahead, Behind, right on target? Right on target at my last appointment which was surprising as I usually measure behind.

    4) Do you have a guess when the baby will be here? Guessing April 15 or so, hoping she'll wait til April 20

    5) Will you have a baby pool where people try to guess the baby's info? No.

    6) Have you packed a hospital bag? Not yet.

    7) What is going in your hospital bag? For you? For baby? For DH? For me clothes, toiletries, for baby a going-home outfit, for DH snacks and the camera.

    8 ) Hungry for anything in particular these days? Chocolate and Lucky Charms.

    9) What is one thing you want to do before the baby arrives and newborn sleep deprivation sets in? Get the house cleaned.

    10) Will you photograph or video tape your birth? I'll have DH take some pics and shoot some short video clips with our camera. I would actually like a video of the baby coming out for my personal viewing only later on, but I don't think that will happen since it is against hospital policy to take any crotch shots and DH will probably be too busy helping me/watching to try to sneak a video. I alos think it would be neat to hold the camera myself and video record as the baby comes out to have a video of her birth from my perspective, but again, probably not going to attempt that as I will be kind of distracted with pushing when the time comes, lol!

    11) Any St. Patti's day plans? Nope.

    12) Anyone taking a spring break? I wish but I am not taking off any time between now and my maternity leave unless I or DD get sick.

    13) Any other March plans? Visiting my family next weekend which will be our last out of town trip before the birth.

    14) Seen any good movies lately? No, I don't watch a lot of movies.

    15) Anything else you want to add? Its getting hard to breath, baby is crowding all my innards, lol!
