Name: Jules

EDD: 12/5

How are you feeling: Eh... ok. Pregnant and done.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Just had one today. Regular prenatal check up. Next one is on Tuesday next week.

Last week I asked what was the most worthless gift... Now, which is the favorite gift you have received so far for baby?: My mom bought the baby a beautiful dresser with a removeable changing table on the top. Should last her forever! By far the best gift.

Knowing that babies could be here starting in two to three weeks, do you plan to put holiday decorations up early?: Yep. Probably will put them up next weekend.

Something bad?: My BP is up apparently after my MW visit today. Sad Had to get lab work. Hope everything is ok. Apparently I have been having anxiety attacks too. Great. Guess it is time to slow things down to a snails pace.

Something good?: My family! They are all so there for me, from my DH, to my DS to my parents and sister. So glad they are my family.

EDD: Dec 14

How are you feeling: Miserable and useless. Right now I just started getting sharp painful cramps, too.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Nov 11 check-up, ultrasound and cervix check

Last week I asked what was the most worthless gift... Now, which is the favorite gift you have received so far for baby?: Oh wow, that's hard. I have to say the outpouring of generosity from parents of multiples has been incredible. A woman I used to work with (and mother of twins) gave us the car seats and double snap-n-go along with loads of other goodies, a couple I have never even met from the parents of multiples club (and parents of twins) gave us two swings and more goodies, and a friend of a friend (and mother of triplets) gave us all of our preemie and newborn clothes and a twin breastfeeding pillow.

Knowing that babies could be here starting in two to three weeks, do you plan to put holiday decorations up early?: Nope. We won't do a tree or anything. We'll go somewhere else for Christmas.

Something bad?: My dog passed away this weekend.

Something good?: Pass.

EDD: Dec 30th

How are you feeling: Just OK

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Tomorrow- ultrasound and 32 week appt

Last week I asked what was the most worthless gift... Now, which is the favorite gift you have received so far for baby?: Clothes! Tons of them Smile

Knowing that babies could be here starting in two to three weeks, do you plan to put holiday decorations up early?: DH talked me into waiting until Thanksgiving weekend. I'll be 35 weeks then so hopefully manageable then. We have started wrapping our Christmas presents already though and have 99% of the shopping done.

Something bad?: Pissed off because I found out I will have to pay a specialist co-pay for all of my endocrinologist visits. They want to see me every 2 weeks so I am going to ask the OB if there is another way someone can monitor my sugars because I can't afford this!

Something good?:Getting excited about my baby shower this Saturday Smile

How are you feeling: much better today

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Monday - u/s

Last week I asked what was the most worthless gift... Now, which is the favorite gift you have received so far for baby?: I love all the personalized gifts I've received. Its hard to claim a favorite because everyone has been awesome to us and we have received so much great stuff.

Knowing that babies could be here starting in two to three weeks, do you plan to put holiday decorations up early?: Nope. My DH does all the decorating so I don't plan to do any. Every year he does it the day after Thanksgiving. However, he will be recovering from surgery so I'm not sure if he will be up to it by then.

Something bad?: Dh has to have surgery

Something good?: I have another shower this weekend.

Name: Krystal

EDD: Dec 1

How are you feeling: I'm so done. I hurt all over thanks to this horrible back labor...

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: This Tuesday, just a routine check-up.

Last week I asked what was the most worthless gift... Now, which is the favorite gift you have received so far for baby?: One of my co-workers made a blanket for Trystan... it's so beautiful!

Knowing that babies could be here starting in two to three weeks, do you plan to put holiday decorations up early?: No, I wait until the day after Thanksgiving to put up my Christmas stuff. So either way (unless I happen to be in the hospital on that particular day!) that's when I'll do it!

Something bad?: It's my first day back to work since having three days off in a row, and now I have to work six days to get to my next set of days off!

Something good?: Nothing right now... my back hurts too much lol!!

EDD: Dec 3rd

How are you feeling: very irritable and grumpy and sensitive Sad

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: this afternoon, just a checkup

Last week I asked what was the most worthless gift... Now, which is the favorite gift you have received so far for baby?: Our Bumbleride Indie stroller Biggrin it's still not here yet, but I know I am going to love it, haha

Knowing that babies could be here starting in two to three weeks, do you plan to put holiday decorations up early?: if I can convince DH Blum 3 his rule is no Christmas decorations before Dec 1 (what a grinch, right??) but this year I might be able to get it done a little earlier. We probably won't do a tree though....too much work.

Something bad?: DH is stressed and exhausted and isn't supporting me quite as well. He still helps out around the house (even with me off work!!) so I shouldn't complain. But I need more emotional support and I'm not getting it. He's teasing me and poking fun a bit at me...nothing that would ever usually bug me, but since I feel a bit unsupported (and crazy hormonal) it's actually bothering me a lot.

Something good?: I don't know. I guess the nursery is almost done, that's good!

EDD: 12-26

How are you feeling: Ready for this baby to get here! Sleeping is next to impossible now and my contractions are getting stronger and more frequent.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: November 8th for my ultrasound and November 14th for my checkup.

Last week I asked what was the most worthless gift... Now, which is the favorite gift you have received so far for baby?: So far it's our stroller. I love it!!

Knowing that babies could be here starting in two to three weeks, do you plan to put holiday decorations up early?: Probably not. I am not due until the end of December so I still feel like I have time to do those things. We more than likely won't do anything until after Thanksgiving. I like having a real tree so we can't do that too early.

Something bad?: Going back to work tomorrow. My patients are really starting to get on my nerves.

Something good?: Ultrasound next week.

Sheila... sorry about your dog Sad ((((HUGS))))))

Name: CArolyn

EDD: Dec 12 by calandar, Dec 6 by ultrasound

How are you feeling: aside from contractions, fine!

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: next week... but I have decided to call tomorrow. I am having a hard time convincing myself that all these painful contractions are "normal." I've mentioned them at all my appointments but I feel like they just brush it off. That coupled with measuring 3 weeks small is starting to make me worry that my amniotic fluid is low. I just want some re-assurance! I'm hoping for at least a NST tomorrow and maybe a quick fluid check. It would really make me feel better.

Last week I asked what was the most worthless gift... Now, which is the favorite gift you have received so far for baby?: We haven't gotten anything actually. I just bought him a really cute car seat blanket that I really like. I am hoping someone gets us one or two cute outfits Smile

Knowing that babies could be here starting in two to three weeks, do you plan to put holiday decorations up early?: We are all decorated for fall right now. We plan on getting our tree Thanksgiving weekend!

Something bad?: I'm at work right now. I was hoping to get to sleep soon, but a trauma alert just came over my pager for a fall with a brain bleed. Hopefully I get to sleep at some point tonight.

Something good?: A girl at work needed extra shifts and AGREED to take my Thanksgiving night shift!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy!!!! We get to celebrate the holiday like a family now

How are you feeling: Pretty good. I have almost constant BH contractions when I am standing or walking and the heartburn is awful, but still pretty good.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: I had one today. It was normal 35 week plus an u/s. I have another one next thursday and it will be an u/s to check fluid levels.. mine is low again. Plus she will check my cervix and do my group b test.

Last week I asked what was the most worthless gift... Now, which is the favorite gift you have received so far for baby?: The only gift we have gotten is a carseat.

Knowing that babies could be here starting in two to three weeks, do you plan to put holiday decorations up early?: Nope, We will still do it Thanksgiving night I think.

Something bad?: My fluid is low again. It was low with my dd too, but I was hoping it wouldn't be this time.

Something good?:Baby is measuring 1 day ahead, my MW is happy with my blood sugar numbers and everything seems to be going great except my fluid is low.
