When's that baby coming out? Tomorrow would be good. I am so done being pregnant.

What are you wearing these days? Whatever I can find that fits...lol

When's that baby coming out? Whenever they feel like it, I guess.

Any signs baby is on its way? Loads of signs that mean nothing, apparently.

What are you wearing these days? The pink shirt comes as close to "fitting" as is possible. When that's dirty, the purple shirt covers half the belly so it gets paired with an undershirt. Pants don't fit but I do wear some when I'm outside anyway.

Anything left to do before baby comes? Nope.

Is your name choice finalized? I think so.

Something you want to share? We did a little extreme nesting yesterday and replaced a 20 year old car with a brand new one.

When's that baby coming out? Edd is Jan 1st...might induce, guess I'm not really sure yet.

Any signs baby is on its way? Nope. My babies like to stay put. They have to be forced out.

What are you wearing these days? I hate maternity clothes so I've mostly stayed away from those. Just some pre-preggo pants that were a little on the big side & skirts/dresses.

Anything left to do before baby comes? Isn't there always? I still haven't really packed a bag or set up any clothing in drawers, etc. Still have car seat installation & need to wash swing, etc.

Is your name choice finalized? No, so far we are leaning towards Ruby Boots, but we have already leaned there & moved on....we are now full circle.

Something you want to share? The baby....I want her out & able to pass around. Biggrin

When's that baby coming out? Due on December 19, but I'm hoping she arrives sooner. Smile

Any signs baby is on its way? Nope. Not a one.

What are you wearing these days? Same old crap, day in, day out. I make myself presentable for work and as soon as I get home, I break out the comfy clothes.

Anything left to do before baby comes? Not too much. I have most of it taken care of now. My newborn prefolds are due to arrive in the mail today, so I will need to prep them (wash them multiple times). But mostly just trying to get crap done at work before she makes her appearance.

Is your name choice finalized? Yep...it has been for several months now.

Something you want to share? Not really. My brain is a little foggy these days.

Yes, the joyfulness is overflowing! I especially love the comments about what people are wearing. I swear if I could I would just be naked because fabric against my stretched belly skin just burns! Most of the time, I sit around the house with my shirt liftd up and my belly sticking out to get some fresh air. LOL.

Oh my gosh Carrie me too!! Whenever I am on the couch my shirt is pulled up over my belly. My son has been walking around pulling his shirt up so his belly sticks out all week... Can't imagine where he learned that!!

I'm usually wearing a tank top at home & the bottom always rides up so my belly is exposed. It feels so good, but unfortunately I now live w/ a 17yo boy & feel kind of weird w/ 1/2 my body hanging out. He's going to have to get used to it when nursing begins tho. If he thinks I'm going to sit around the house w/ a cover whenever I'm nursing he is sadly mistaken.

Yes, I suppose the nakedness will probably extend to my boobs after the baby gets here. Glad I don't have any teenagers around to gross out.

When's that baby coming out? C-section Dec 22nd

Any signs baby is on its way? Nope. Not that i would recognize it lol never have been in labor.

What are you wearing these days? Yoga pants and a scrub top to work, then when I get home my comfy sweats and a tee- I also let the belly hang out, feels good to let it hang out !

Anything left to do before baby comes? Tons! baby shower on the 3rd so after that I will get the rest of the baby shopping done. The room will get done in the next few months as the bassinet will be in our room and we need to do some shuffling.

Is your name choice finalized? Nope- not all all. I like one name Dh likes another- and we can't come to a conclusion. We will have to figure it out soon.

Something you want to share? Start my Mat leave on wed!!!! Yahoo

How old is baby now? 2 weeks!

How big is baby? We'll find out for sure at the midwife on Wednesday, but I'm guessing around 6 lbs 10-12 oz

Any exciting milestones? He's starting to wake up more and look around at us more. Such a sleepy baby, as apparantly early babies are sleepier than full term ones.

How long is baby sleeping at night? He's a great sleeper, see above! Amazingly, he is giving us 4-5 hour stretches at night so that's fab.

Anybody already having fun with DH in the bedroom? Bahahaha! Um, no.

Something you want to share? I'm still processing the birth. I'm still a bit in shock over how things happened and how different they were from what we planned. I had a feeling he was going to come early, but not *that* early. It was such a fast labour. I'm still sort of shell-shocked over it all!

I can't believe your tinsel tots are two weeks old already!

I love to have my belly hanging out too. But I usually hide it from DH because he always has some sort whale like comment for me. :roll: come on! I'm not that big! He's always kidding around.

What are you wearing these days? Still same old maternity clothes since I'm still working.

Anything left to do before baby comes? Pack the hospital bag is the main thing.

Something you want to share? Like most of you, ready to be done. Ready to start maternity leave and ready to have my baby here.
