Name: Katie

Due date/how far along are you: My due date is April 23,2013. Tomorrow I will be 29 weeks! YAY!!!!!

Are you working?: Nope, only have one car and my hubby uses it for work. So I am getting ready for the baby.
If so, When do you plan to start maternity leave:N/A

Most recent appt: Thursday January 31, 2013
What did it entail: got my rho-gam shot and talked with doctor, checking up on everything. That shot hurt! And I am pretty darn good when it comes to needles.

Next appt: Thursday February 14, 2013 what does it entail: im guessing another check up.

Bag packed?: not yet but I need too. Never can be too prepared!
If not, when will you?: once I get back home from my parents , I am going to make sure the bag is packed and by the door.

Any signs of labor?: nope not that i know of.

What, if anything, are you doing to get things going: I have been trying to go to the gym/ exercise at least six days a week for at least 30 min to 50 min. If I had my way I would be at the gym everyday but I was told it is good to have a break. Don't want to overdo anything but want to try and stay as healthy as I can for the baby.

Is your house ready for the baby? Getting there. My hubby painted the baby's room and put the crib and dresser and storage shelves together. WE have washed and disinfected most of what we have so far. Waiting for the baby shower before I can continue to nest.
If not what do you have left to do? Just baby proof the house, make his baby blanket, paint the baby's letters , and organize and set up room more. And buy a mattress!!!!

Anything else you want to add: I am so excited and so anxious at the same time. Trying to take control of my ocd and not let it worry and stress me out.

Name: Rebecca

Due date/how far along are you: Um, 28 weeks? Due April 22

Are you working?:Yes
If so, When do you plan to start maternity leave: When the baby arrives. I am working until I go into labor.

Most recent appt: Last Thurs.
What did it entail: Glucose test, otherwise standard appt.

Next appt: Feb 28
what does it entail: Standard appt. plus U/S to check on my placenta location.

Bag packed?: No.
If not, when will you?: Hopefully before I go into labor-I think last time I ended up packing while in labor.

Any signs of labor?: No, unless you count BH but I had those from 20 weeks on w/ DD1 so I don't count them as an impending sign.

What, if anything, are you doing to get things going: Nothing yet, if I haven't gone into labor by my due date, I have no doubt that the running around I will be doing at my job will be enough to do the trick.

Is your house ready for the baby? Sort of-it is ready in that we have all the baby stuff we need and set up.
If not what do you have left to do? We have to move DD1's stuff out of the nursery which means I would like to get her some nice new furniture for her big girl room, but have to convince DH. Otherwise baby 2 will be living out of the plastic storage bins I put all of DDs outgrown clothes in, which is not what I want to have happen.

Anything else you want to add: This pregnancy feels like it is both going super fast and super slow.
