    Name: Aimee
    Due date: April 2 but csection march 29

    How are you emotionally this week: ehhh not too bad overall but I have my moments lol. It's like sadness to anger to fine in minutes and then I have no reason why!!!

    How are you physically this week: sore... Sore... Sore... It sucks! When she moves it hurts most the time and she has these spurts (of course right when I get home to relax) with 2 straight hours of moving. Also tmi but my hemmorhoids are awful... I can't stand that either... And this pregnancy I have so much swelling that I did not have before... My feet are sausages!!!

    If you are still working how is it going: pretty good. This week and next week are both pretty easy weeks that are good for me and since all my planning is done for when I am out I can really focus on daily stuff. I try to correct and organize everything before I leave each day so that nothing hangs over my head. Today was the only day it didn't work because I had to rush out for the docs

    Anything you need to accomplish before the baby that is stressing you out: not really. The major stuff is done. A few little things like installing the car seat and getting the pack and play and cosleeper set up but those are easy

    How are your loved ones doing with the upcoming arrival(siblings, DHs, your parents, your inlaws etc). DH is great... More just worried about me! My daughter is excited but I don't think she gets it will happen so soon. My
    Arenas are both passed away... My in laws are great... My mil is excited!!!

    Anything else you want to add: I wrote my grad paper and got it done tonight!!! 18 pages whoo hoooo now the sideshow this weekend for basketball!

    Aimee - when I was getting my Masters, I had to write a 90 page screenplay. Ugh. It SUCKED. Haha. Good luck with your paper!


    Name: Jessica
    Due date: April 5th

    How are you emotionally this week: Sucky, actually. I'm up, then down, then up, then down. I'm having a lot of crazy dreams about DH leaving/cheating, so that's not helping.

    How are you physically this week: Better than last week, thankfully. Last week I was almost in tears at the end of the day from work. This week has been better, so I'm not freaking out to get taken out of work so soon...haha.

    If you are still working how is it going: It's going. I'm looking forward to baby girl coming so I can have some time off. I know everyone says it's not a "vacation" but this is my first baby and I'm going to ENJOY her and not being at work.

    Anything you need to accomplish before the baby that is stressing you out: I really want to finalize my plans for daycare. Other than that, things are slow going, but they're getting accomplished. The car seat is in my car... it WAS installed, but we un-installed it until the big day gets here because it takes up a lot of room.

    How are your loved ones doing with the upcoming arrival(siblings, DHs, your parents, your inlaws etc): DH is semi-excited. I think he's still in denial, just like me. My mom is SUPER excited about her! My dad and my brother could care less I think. My MIL is excited too, but only because it's a girl, not because her son is having a baby.

    Anything else you want to add: When the freak is my nesting going to start??

    Jessica, what is it about pregnancy dreams? DH's are such cheaters in pregnancy dreams. It sucks.

    Name: Elizabeth
    Due date: April 25th

    How are you emotionally this week: To be completely honest...I'm a wreck.

    How are you physically this week: Decent. I think the chiro is helping with the SPD. Although hemmoroids are becoming a problem and the frequent peeing has me waking up and not going back to sleep, so I'm tired.

    If you are still working how is it going: Works sucks. Not much else to say about that.

    Anything you need to accomplish before the baby that is stressing you out: I need to accomplish a lot of things, but I have time still, so I'm not stressed about baby stuff. My friend shower is on the 23rd and I just ordered sandwiches today (my dad is buying). I need a car seat and a baby monitor, but those are my only 2 big items I need. We are going to wait until after the shower in case we get gift cards. I need to accomplish a lot for work however. My boss said 6 more weeks, are you going to be done? I said well actually its anywhere from 3-8 more weeks, bc babies aren't born on their due dates. Good news is, I think we are hiring someone next week!!!

    How are your loved ones doing with the upcoming arrival(siblings, DHs, your parents, your inlaws etc) DH is super excited. He has also started to get very nervous. My brother and SIL are excited, they are also expecting in May. My dad and inlaws cannot contain their excitement.

    Anything else you want to add: I got a speeding ticket today while driving my co-worker to a meeting. I swear I wasn't trying to speed, I had just gotten off the highway and had lead foot. Total pregnancy brain. Cop didn't seem to care. What a turkey.

    Name: Adriana

    Due date: 5/3/13

    How are you emotionally this week: Not too bad.. we're having some decent weather so the seasonal depression stuff is starting to disappear!

    How are you physically this week: Contractions like nuts.. will be discussing this at the Dr's today.

    If you are still working how is it going: It's going.. my boss is a jerk so it won't let up until I'm off. Oh well..

    Anything you need to accomplish before the baby that is stressing you out: Just daycare confirmation.. that's it! All else is done.. whew!!

    How are your loved ones doing with the upcoming arrival(siblings, DHs, your parents, your inlaws etc): I think DH is gearing up.. My mom is determined to get into the hair dresser before he arrives. Other than that, eh.. I don't think anyone is overly excited.

    Name: Jill
    Due date: April 17th

    How are you emotionally this week: Emotionally, i'm doing pretty good this week. We haven't had anything major or negative happen yet so that really helps. lol

    How are you physically this week: Sore, tired, and not a whole lot of energy...the usual for this time.

    If you are still working how is it going: N/A

    Anything you need to accomplish before the baby that is stressing you out: Just getting the car seat is the major thing. But my parents said they will be going next week to pick one out if we don't get the one we registered for at the shower this weekend. My dad is set that we need one of those three wheel jogging stroller because we do a lot outside during the summer and he thinks having one of those will be easier for me to use. If he's buying he can pick. LOL My only two requirements are that the infant seat that comes with it is not huge and bulky to begin with and that the stroller folds up fairly easily and small. Otherwise he can have at it.

    How are your loved ones doing with the upcoming arrival(siblings, DHs, your parents, your inlaws etc) My 13 year old step son is pretty indifferent. I don't think he really cares much. But that's his attitude coming out. Our 6 year old son cannot wait. He is so dang excited. Asks a few times a week if shes done baking yet. He is very concerned that there is no pillow in her crib so he has made sure to tell us that if she can't have a pillow she has to have a blanket. Thats the typical big brother coming out. LOL Between my DH, dad, brother, and son this poor girl has no chance. LOL
    DH is pretty excited and ready for her to be here as well. This pregnancy has been different with him. One because it's a girl I think, and two because he has been able to be here for everything and every appt whereas with our son, he was active duty military so he missed out on a lot.

    Anything else you want to add: My shower is this weekend!!!

    Name:Katie
    Due date: April 23, 2013

    How are you emotionally this week: I have been a wreck too. One minute I have been fine and dandy and the next minute I'm annoyed and aggravated. Getting mad over the littlest things. And then feeling bad for getting upset and mad to begin with. Raging hormones everywhere!

    How are you physically this week: Wow! I could write a whole book on how horrible I have been this week physically. Not only am I tired and exhausted but I have started experiencing swelling. It is absolutely dreadful. My hands are as big as mickey mouses and feet and legs look like elephants. And I am constantly peeing more than I ever have before. My back and who hah are aching and sore. And I have heartburn and indigestion almost daily. My legs have been sore also and achey.

    If you are still working how is it going: N/A

    Anything you need to accomplish before the baby that is stressing you out: I just need to get a few last minute items and finish some touches up to his nursery. And we need to install our car seat and baby proof the house. And train the kitties to stay away from the bassinet. So we got a good bit left to do.

    How are your loved ones doing with the upcoming arrival(siblings, DHs, your parents, your inlaws etc)
    Both of our families are so excited and can;t wait to meet the new addition to our family.

    Anything else you want to add: My shower is tomorrow!
