When is your next appt and what is it for? Sept 13th...the norm. Prob for my ob to tell me I'm gaining too much weight. Grrr.

Are you considering having more kids after this one? Wasn't even considering having this one until my BFP so, no.

What do you do for a living? I do advertising/flyers/catalogs for a mom & pop company. Am currently enrolled in HTML programing so I can try to get a new job.

What are your biggest pet peeves/things that bother you while being pregnant? Can be related to pregnancy, hormones, or neither! That I can't relax w/ a beer & barking dogs....OMG, just make them shut-up already!

When is your next appt and what is it for? Thursday, repeat anatomy scan

Are you considering having more kids after this one? yup!

What do you do for a living? DH and I are both physician assistants. I work in trauma surgery

What are your biggest pet peeves/things that bother you while being pregnant? Can be related to pregnancy, hormones, or neither! my pet peeves aren't pregnancy related. It annoys me when people use the nominative case instead of the subjective case. Example: "She went to the park with the dog and I"... it should be the dog and ME. Everyone seems to think as long as they say "I" it must be grammatically correct. Everyone also says "I could care less" when it should be "I could NOT care less." :rolleyes:

How's the progress on the nursery (for those who have one)? I wish we had one!! Baby will be in with DH and me. We did just get the crib though Smile

Something good? Its a GORGEOUS day outside! and I got two big cleaning projects done

Something bad? Life is good Biggrin

I love the responses so far! Lesley, I know the feeling about the next appt. and what it is for Wink and the ***! oh man, evil thing back there.

Carolyn.. so cool that you are a PA. I always prefer PA's or NP's over docs. AND OMG, yes! The grammar thing! I have my degree in English and that drives me batty! Especially when it is my boss that does it!

Pain Jenn? Where? Back??? And I can't tolerate certain personalities even non-pg ha.

How are you feeling? Some days I feel pretty good! Like today! Other days I feel tired, sad and completely unmotivated... well, I guess the unmotivated is really every day.

When is your next appt and what is it for? Need to call and set it up, but MW said to make an appt for Sept 13 for a reg. check up (and to hear I have gained too much weight haha) and for my GD test.

Are you considering having more kids after this one? Two and through!

What do you do for a living? I work in public relations. I currently do mostly media relations for various outdoor clients with an agency. I work from home though, which is great.

What are your biggest pet peeves/things that bother you while being pregnant? Can be related to pregnancy, hormones, or neither! Ugh.. my DH NOT listening to me! Or telling me he will do something and then doesn't! Driving me nuts!!!

How's the progress on the nursery (for those who have one)? I still need to get decorations and clean and put clothes away and that sort of thing, but not a lot of work left I don't think.

Something good? I have a vacation to Florida with the family in less than 2 weeks!!!!!!

You're the pregnant one, you're never a waste of space or not fun. Everyone else just needs to shut up & get out of the way. lol.

Name: Sheila

EDD: December 14 (really, early to mid November)

How many weeks are you? 24 tomorrow

How are you feeling? Like absolute shipoopy. I barfed ALLLLLLLL over my car and myself this morning half way to work (so 35 minutes from home or office). I had to clean up with baby wipes, arrived 15 minutes late for a meeting, and got to take credit whenever someone asked, "Does it smell like vomit to you?" Why yes, yes it does smell like vomit. That would be me, thanks.

When is your next appt and what is it for? Friday for my big anatomy scan. We should find out the sex of baby A.

Are you considering having more kids after this one? You have got to be kidding me. Well, wait, yes, I mean, after the first one I'll have a second but that's just a few minutes later, hopefully.

What do you do for a living? I'm a geologist turned teacher.

What are your biggest pet peeves/things that bother you while being pregnant? Can be related to pregnancy, hormones, or neither! Constantly having to smile and say, "Thaaaanks!" when people congratulate me. I LOVE LOVE LOVE when people are all, "ZOMG pregnancy? It's awful and disgusting." And then we have big discussions about how gross mammals are (and plesiosaurs too, I guess).

How's the progress on the nursery (for those who have one)? Uh...

Something good? I got two new shirts by mail today so once I do laundry I'll have enough to keep one in the car in case of a another stealth vomit.

Something bad? My car smells like fish oil vomit and needs to be professionally cleaned because it's effing disgusting.

EDD: December 26

How many weeks are you? 22 weeks 2 days

How are you feeling? Stressed. Life is throwing us some curve balls right now and I don't like it.

When is your next appt and what is it for? Sept 9th for a monthly checkup

Are you considering having more kids after this one? I personally would love one more because I have always wanted 3 kids. But since we have my 11 year old step-son I don't think financially we can do another baby.

What do you do for a living? I am a nurse and work with substance abuse patients.

What are your biggest pet peeves/things that bother you while being pregnant? Can be related to pregnancy, hormones, or neither! Pregnancy related would be this darn mid-back ache. It is driving me insane. Also I have a no BS tolerance right now. Even the smallest thing can pi$$ me off and I will just sit and dwell on it.

How's the progress on the nursery (for those who have one)? We won't start on Ryan's room until after the beginning of the year when we convert our garage into a master bedroom.

Something good? We are all alive and healthy.

Something bad? Lots of financial stresses at the moment. We are a middle income family and I am trying my best to get my daughter into preschool. However, we make too much money to qualify for headstart but I also cannot afford to spend lots of money on preschool either. So that is tearing my heart out. And also my DH's car officially kicked the bucket (it has over 200,000 miles on it) and now needs a new motor. It's always something.

How many weeks are you? 24

How are you feeling? Pretty good. I have been having a lot of headaches lately and that sucks though.

When is your next appt and what is it for? Today, It's my 24 week checkup

Are you considering having more kids after this one? Umm, no not really. This is number 3 and I am already 35, so I think we are done. I am not really feeling okay with it yet though.

What do you do for a living? I stay home with my babies

What are your biggest pet peeves/things that bother you while being pregnant? Can be related to pregnancy, hormones, or neither! Umm, Nothing really. My normal pet peeves lol, but none more so than usual.

How's the progress on the nursery (for those who have one)? No nursery for us. In fact the only thing we have for the baby yet other than hand-me-downs is a new carseat.

Something good? Going to Gatlinburg this afternoon with my FIL and MIL for a few days.

Something bad? Hmm, other than these headaches, nothing really bad going on.

How are you feeling? OK
When is your next appt and what is it for? August 26th (FRI!) for a repeat u/s and general check-up

Are you considering having more kids after this one? Nope, 2 and through.

What do you do for a living? I'm a chemist at a pharmaceutical company.

What are your biggest pet peeves/things that bother you while being pregnant? Can be related to pregnancy, hormones, or neither! when DH asks the same questions over and over.

How's the progress on the nursery (for those who have one)? Looking good! Just gotta get things organized.

Something good? I'm moving groups at work on Sept 3rd!!!

Something bad? my boss' boss is giving me a really hard time that I went to HR (over her head) about my work situation. She is such a vindictive person she will probably hold it against me for a while but I feel all of the changes that are happening now wouldn't have happened if I didn't go to HR.

EDD: Dec 1

How many weeks are you? 26 weeks

How are you feeling? Good overall, my back is really starting to bother me, and sleeping is becoming a big problem as I can't get comfortable.

When is your next appt and what is it for? September 12, just a regular checkup... and after that appt I go every two weeks!!

Are you considering having more kids after this one? ABSOLUTELY NOT! DH will be getting the snip either right before or right after this baby!

What do you do for a living? I'm in the timeshare business. I'm a "concierge" at a resort here in Las Vegas, so I sell show tickets, book Grand Canyon tours and things like that, but it's all really a cover as my real job is to get people to do the tour of the resort!

What are your biggest pet peeves/things that bother you while being pregnant? Can be related to pregnancy, hormones, or neither! The fact that I can't sleep, sitting in a movie hurts my @ss, I'm starting to waddle, and I cry when the day ends in "y" LMAO!

How's the progress on the nursery (for those who have one)? Nothing yet, because DH hasn't gotten all of his crap out of the baby's room... but I already have the crib and dresser for baby!

Something good? DH's birthday is tomorrow, and we're going out for a date night to dinner and a movie!

Something bad? It's my Monday...

EDD: December 14ish

How many weeks are you? 24 weeks!

How are you feeling? Kinda lousy. Sciatica & tailbone pain was KILLER yesterday. To the point that I could barely walk from the couch to the kitchen. I desperately need to see my chiro and/or my acupuncturist.

When is your next appt and what is it for? September 20, I think? Regular prenatal visit.

Are you considering having more kids after this one? It's up in the air. DH would love a 4th. He keeps joking that we have to have another one to get our money's worth out of the infant carseat we have to buy new for this one. I would be happy to be done at 3. I think. :confused:

What do you do for a living? SAHM

What are your biggest pet peeves/things that bother you while being pregnant? Can be related to pregnancy, hormones, or neither! The thing that is annoying me the most now is how to rearrange our house and bedrooms and stuff to make room for the babe.

How's the progress on the nursery (for those who have one)? See above. :rolleyes:

Something good? I am 6 months pregnant and it still seems a bit surreal since we tried for a year for this one, and had m/c along the way. We are just so grateful to be at this point!

Something bad? Um, not really bad, but kind of hanging over my head - we still have to decide whether to drive or bus our DD to Kindergarten. She starts one week from today and we still haven't decided. Kinda have anxiety about either choice. :confused:

Ughhhhh, sorry the colour code got messed up. I'm way too lazy to go back and fix it though!
