Name: Jessica
Weeks: 33w 5d

How are you feeling: At this exact moment? I just woke up, drenched in sweat and so now I'm freezing and trying not to think about the dream I had.

What is one (or more) thing you can't wait for after the baby regarding yourself: I wanna be able to EAT without getting sick and poo correctly and my Hoo-hah not hurting and being able to bend over without sounding like a whale in heat LMAO

Any big stress right now regarding baby: Yes, everything.

Nesting?: I wish

Name for baby yet: Julie Frances
Does name have a meaning?: Julie DH picked out and I loved it. Frances is DH's dads middle name and since he passed away, DH wanted to honor him.

How is DH handling the stress of upcoming baby: I tend to think DH doesn't think about the upcoming baby.

What will you LO call their grandparents: I have no idea. I've thought about this recently. People close with their grandparents have nicknames for them, like nana (or my cousins called my grandmother LouLou), but I've never been close to my grandparents - so they've always just been Grandmother. LOL My BIL has "kids" (they aren't his, they're his girlfriends) that call MIL nana, so I dunno if I want to go the same route or not.

Anything else? Not right now.

Name: Aimee
Weeks: 34 weeks today

How are you feeling: ehhhh. Sore and really tired. Standing at my grandmothers wake for that long on Monday kicked my butt. Calling the chiro when it opens at 9 today to try and get my SPD in check and hoping it helps.

What is one (or more) thing you can't wait for after the baby regarding yourself: there are two that come to mind... Sleeping on back and belly because me and the side sleeping are not friends and getting myself to a good weight and fit. I know this is my last so we are really focusing on that after...i want to lose 60 or mor lbs in the next year Smile

Any big stress right now regarding baby: the biggest is that I want to make it until my scheduled date for c section. I got really anxious about this with my first too just because the thought of it being an emergency and stuff freaks me out because I want the c section and my scar to be fixed.

Nesting?: a little. Despite all the craziness with my nana passing I was able to get the decals in Rylees room almost done and her nursery is just about set. I am "thinking" of cleaning the kitchen in a few before I have ball practice at 10 lol

Name for baby yet: Rylee Jeanne
Does name have a meaning?: well we had chosen this before but the middle was going to be Jean... It was always after my nana and my aunt/godmother Jeannette but after she passed and I was writing my eulogy I decided spelling it closer to Jeannette was better (I don't like how it sounds to use the whole name)

How is DH handling the stress of upcoming baby: he is usually really awesome but last few days making me a ill nuts. I know he is sad about my nana too because she meant a lot to both of us and then with me being so tired and stuff I think he is worried but he handles it crappy so last night my daughter slept crappy and he was so grumpy

What will you LO call their grandparents: my parents passed away so my kids never met them. They call DHs parents nana and papa. My fil mother is still alive and she is Grammy. They called my nana nanny Mac until she passed for her last name

Anything else?

Weeks: 32 weeks today!

How are you feeling: Ok. I'm starting to get more and more uncomfortable though as each day passes.

What is one (or more) thing you can't wait for after the baby regarding yourself: To have a regular Pepsi again! I've only had a couple this entire pregnancy as i've been trying to stay away from the caffeine. Also knowing this is our last, i can't wait to start working on losing weight.

Any big stress right now regarding baby: Mmm..nothing huge. Just the normal financial stuff for after baby..like diapers and formula stuff.

Nesting?: Sort of...

Name for baby yet: Right now, her name is going to be Kylie Marie.
Does name have a meaning?: Nothing special with the first name, but Marie is my moms and my middle name.

How is DH handling the stress of upcoming baby: Awesome! I feel like he is so much more involved this time, then he was last time. Of course he was active duty Navy when I was pg with my son, so I know that is a huge part of it. But I also think because this time it's a girl...he's already wrapped around her little finger and she isn't even here yet. lol

What will you LO call their grandparents: My mom and dad will be Grandma and Grandpa. The inlaws are Granny and Pappaw.

Anything else? Nope don't think so.

Name for baby yet: Henry
Does name have a meaning?: Nope, we just liked it.

How is DH handling the stress of upcoming baby: He's worried about being a dad and lack of sleep and not being able to go out as much, but he doesn't "stress" I don't think.

How are you feeling: Ok, just uncomfortable and grumpy.

What is one (or more) thing you can't wait for after the baby regarding yourself: BEER! I miss beer. Won't be able to have a tall glass until the baby is sleeping long stretches at night.

Nesting?: I go back and forth. I have the desire, just not the energy.

Name for baby yet: Emma Elaine
Does name have a meaning?: Emma we just like, Elaine is MILs middle name that she goes by.

How is DH handling the stress of upcoming baby: He's doing well with it, but is worried about the timing of delivery and his school and wether the timing will work out with him mom's visit. He hates that we can't have it planned out.

What will you LO call their grandparents: My mom and dad are Grandma and Papa. The inlaws are Nana and Grandpa. It gets confusing.

Anything else? Nah, just counting down the days till I'm done with work.

How are you feeling: Uncomfortable. My lower back is achey a lot now, and there is the whole "gigantic baby sitting on my bladder" thing now.

What is one (or more) thing you can't wait for after the baby regarding yourself: CARBS. I already told DH that he has to bring me lasagna and garlic bread and a brownie as soon as I'm done giving birth. LOL

Any big stress right now regarding baby: We have nothing done. Seriously. Nursery was supposed to get done last wekeend, but then DH had to help my brother move, and then his grandma died, and so literally nothing got done. Also, no name. We are NOT on top of things at my house. LOL!

Name for baby yet: Hahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa Does name have a meaning?: *eybrow twitches*

How is DH handling the stress of upcoming baby: By pretending that it's totally NOT probably happening in like 4 weeks. All of the time in the world. Totally.

Alissa, love the crazy laugh. You will pick a name. Don't worry. Does your DS have any suggestions? I loved the laid back parents that wait til the end to pick a name and do everything. I wish I weren't such a nut about planning.

Katie, You would think being a host I would know how to delete a post...but I don't. I've been just editing my post and saying "double post" when it happens to me. I can do it to yours to. I will have to reseach more on how to delete posts when I'm at my computer.
