How far along are you: 32 weeks tomorrow

Any recent cravings: Yesterday I had a craving for a Shamrock shake from Mcdonalds

Did you give in to the craving: I mentioned it to DH and he brought me home one after his doctors appt. It tasted DELISH

Are you feeling more tired or the same lately: I am exhausted the last two days. I think part of it is that I had a super busy week last week and then we worked all weekend on my daughters room and we just did not stop all weekend so it all caught up with me yesterday and today. I fell asleep at 6:15 last night

If you have other children how are they taking the impending arrival: She seems to be excited and took mocing into her new room this weekend really well. My cousin came over with her 3 week old baby and she was ok with both DH and I holding her but she wanted nothing to do with holding or going near the baby so it will be interesting lol

Do you want to go early, on time or late (Interested to see if anyone wants late haha): I hope to make it until my scheduled c-section. I have huge fear of going early and it being an emergency surgery rather than just scheduled. I was the same way with my daughter.

How are you sleeping lately: AWFUL for weeks now... I am not a sidesleeper and it is KILLING me. I really just need to get some good sleep and not have to go the bathroom every hour or so.

Do you sleep in the bed, on the couch, in a chair etc: I am in the bed with pillows but I just told DH i may need the recliner brought up from our basement... I am not ok sleeping in the basement and it is cold because we only have space heaters down there but I just can't take it anymore

What is the nursery theme if you have one: It is a pink and brown with some birds and branches on it. nothing really too wild but just something to decorate a little.

Anything stressing you out lately that you need to get done: So much I feel like... I will be in the hospital for Easter morning so I want to have my daughter's basket and all that ready and then her brithday is a month after the baby so I also want all that taken care of before I have the baby. I know it will all work out but I am a planner and just want things done. Also finishing up all my maternity planning for work which I am doing pretty good on just need to get it DONE

Name: Jill

How far along are you: 30 weeks tomorrow

Any recent cravings: Nope, still going strong with wanting Sherbert
Did you give in to the craving: Almost every day!

Are you feeling more tired or the same lately: This last week I feel like i'm slipping back towards needing a nap every day, but i've been able to hold of so far.

If you have other children how are they taking the impending arrival: The older one(13) is just kind of like it is what it is as long as he doesn't have to change any diapers. The younger one(6) is so impatient and can't wait. Asks a few times a week if she's done yet and will be here soon...i'm sure that will change after she is here though. I don't think he fully understands that she's not going to be able to play right away.

Do you want to go early, on time or late (Interested to see if anyone wants late haha): In all honesty, I wouldn't mind a few days early if she is ready. But I would love to go on time as my son was a week late and had to be induced.

How are you sleeping lately: Really crappy.
Do you sleep in the bed, on the couch, in a chair etc: Sleep in bed and try to stay on my left side as much as possible since they say that is better, but I so much want to sleep on my back. I wake up sore every day now. Not to mention the up at the very least 2 times a night to pee.

What is the nursery theme if you have one: Don't have one, she will be in our room. But we are going to try to do something cute above where her crib will be. We will see.

Anything stressing you out lately that you need to get done: Just some financial stuff that snuck up on us and is causing some grief(child support issues with DH's other son that lives with his mom-but she isn't the cause of it the states are-go figure lol-because of him being out of work). We are hoping to have it all resolved by the end of this month beginning of March at the latest, but it's going to be a pain in the meantime. Other than that, things are going smoothly right now.

If you have other children how are they taking the impending arrival: My son is pretty excited. He's been great with us starting to get all of the baby stuff out and ready.

Do you want to go early, on time or late (Interested to see if anyone wants late haha): I'd love for her to come right on her due date or the day before! Dh doesn't have school Fridays or Saturdays and it'll be right at the end of DS's spring break so I'd get that week with him, then have the baby. I'm nervous about her being late because we have a history of large babies in my family.

How are you sleeping lately: Better
Do you sleep in the bed, on the couch, in a chair etc: In bed, I've been able to stay on my left side lately, which helps.
