Name: Jules

EDD: 12/5

How are you feeling: Feeling fat, and very stiff... in that I can't move very easily. Can't turn or bend my body! And the sciatic nerve pain continues.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Regular prenatal check up tomorrow. Hoping to get that referral to go to the PT.

When you go grocery shopping by yourself or with your other LO, do people seem to go out of their way to help? Do the cashiers seem more insistent on sending someone out with you to help with the bags, and have you taken them up on it?: I was shocked when someone randomly came up after I finished unloading my cart and my DS and asked if I was done with my cart. I thought they were going to use it, but they just pushed it to the cart thing for me. That was unexpected. The cashiers are super insistent on helping with the bags, but being the stubborn, independent person I am I haven't taken them up on it. I probably should though!

In your most recent dreams, are you always pregnant? Always not? Sometimes are and sometimes not?: In my most recent dreams, I am usually always pregnant.

What is the hardest household chore for you to keep up on now that you are getting bigger and slowing down even more?: The DAMN dishes! The bain of my existence! And vacuuming. I don't remember the last time I made my bed either.

Are there things that never bothered you much before you were pregnant, but now are the most annoying things ever?: I hate to admit it, but I can't stand my pets when I'm pregnant. They drive me absolutely crazy and I have to try really hard to tolerate all their nuances. My DH reminded me that I was the same way when I was prego with DS. It's hard as I feel bad for the animals, but they drive me crazy!

Something bad?: I have 8 weeks to go.

Something good?: I have 8 weeks to go! haha

How are you feeling: Good. A bit sleep deprived but overall not feeling too shabby!

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: October 25th for a checkup

When you go grocery shopping by yourself or with your other LO, do people seem to go out of their way to help? Do the cashiers seem more insistent on sending someone out with you to help with the bags, and have you taken them up on it?: Actually no I haven't. I even picked up a 20lb bag of dog food yesterday with two guys probably in their mid-upper 30s standing right there watching me pick it up. Chivalry is dead...lol

In your most recent dreams, are you always pregnant? Always not? Sometimes are and sometimes not?: When I dream I am almost always pregnant in my dreams because I find myself having references to the baby in all of them.

What is the hardest household chore for you to keep up on now that you are getting bigger and slowing down even more?: Laundry. All the bending to get it in/out of the washer/dryers, folding, and putting away makes me exhausted.

Are there things that never bothered you much before you were pregnant, but now are the most annoying things ever?: Everything? LOL I do find myself getting very easily irritated these days over things that normally wouldn't bother me.

Something bad?: My step-sons mother is in jail

Something good?: I found out today I passed my 3 hour GTT. Also yesterday my parents gave me a hutch (it has a matching table but they haven't brought it over yet) that belonged to my grandmother that passed away when I was 10. I was so happy to have been given those items and they look so nice in my kitchen.

EDD: 12/26 now

How are you feeling: I'm ok - off and on. For the most part I am just a little winded but still hanging in there

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Oct 24, 30 week appt

When you go grocery shopping by yourself or with your other LO, do people seem to go out of their way to help? Do the cashiers seem more insistent on sending someone out with you to help with the bags, and have you taken them up on it?: Ha, no! No one helps, no one takes my cart - as they see me taking it back into the store, nada. I had one guy cough as he walked by me, without covering his mouth. So that was definitely NOT helpful.

In your most recent dreams, are you always pregnant? Always not? Sometimes are and sometimes not?: not pregnant, ever

What is the hardest household chore for you to keep up on now that you are getting bigger and slowing down even more?: laundry and picking up after DS. Its just ahrd to bend over these days.

Are there things that never bothered you much before you were pregnant, but now are the most annoying things ever?: everything. people's attitudes, bad breath, bad drivers...pretty much everything sets me off - and like Julie - my dog drives me up the wall

Something bad?: stupid weight gain is out of control

Something good?: my csection date was moved up by 2 days.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: 10/17/11, 34 week

When you go grocery shopping by yourself or with your other LO, do people seem to go out of their way to help? Do the cashiers seem more insistent on sending someone out with you to help with the bags, and have you taken them up on it?: My DH does the grocery shopping Dirol

In your most recent dreams, are you always pregnant? Always not? Sometimes are and sometimes not?: Always pregnant!

What is the hardest household chore for you to keep up on now that you are getting bigger and slowing down even more?: again, DH does the chores, but I am having a hard time shaving my legs!

Are there things that never bothered you much before you were pregnant, but now are the most annoying things ever?:stupid questions and the stares I get!Just because I'm pregnant doesn't mean I want to talk to complete strangers about it!:rolleyes:

Something bad?: I have green poop now, WTH???

Something good?:I've decided not to work up until my DD. My work has awesome disability coverage and I can take up to 4-weeks off, pre-baby, at full pay w/o it affecting my 20-weeks maternity leave!

EDD: Dec 14

How are you feeling: Like crap. Tired and annoyed.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Friday. I don't know. Cervical check for sure and I always get ultrasounds and they'll check their weights and measurements again. Uh ... I don't know about NSTs though or anything. I don't know. I just have to freakin' drive ALL the way out there and I don't want to.

When you go grocery shopping by yourself or with your other LO, do people seem to go out of their way to help? Do the cashiers seem more insistent on sending someone out with you to help with the bags, and have you taken them up on it?: I'm insanely jealous of your trips to the grocery store! I'm surviving off of the random crap my boyfriend brings home, which is entirely influenced by how hungry he is when he goes to the store. Yesterday's loot included almost entirely pure sugar. Brussels sprouts and waffles and cookies for breakfast, anyone? I broke out of house arrest for lunch on Saturday. I had to. I really did. And maybe I ate forbidden cheese, too! And it was the best decision EVER! And people were definitely moving far out of my way as I waddled to and from the car. Women avoided eye contact and men all smiled and said something nice like a "Good work, mom!" and a "Looking beautiful!"

In your most recent dreams, are you always pregnant? Always not? Sometimes are and sometimes not?: It's always something that comes up at the end. Like, "OH CRAP! Maybe I should not have done that medical trial with the giant syringe of mystery brown liquid injected into my arm, I'm pregnant!"

What is the hardest household chore for you to keep up on now that you are getting bigger and slowing down even more?: Picking up dog poo.

Are there things that never bothered you much before you were pregnant, but now are the most annoying things ever?: Everything in the universe?

Something bad?: Two babies in one belly is the stupidest thing ever. Who invented twins? No, no, let's take that a step back in evolution. Who invented live birth? It's gross and stupid. I say we just lay eggs. Oh wait! You know what else is stupid (for those of you in LA)? Porto's changed some of their recipes without consulting me and there were giant chunks of peppers in the potato balls and no raisins in the empanadas. Sad

Something good?: My dog is still with me and enjoying his final days.

How are you feeling:just ok

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Oct 21st, 30 week OB checkup

When you go grocery shopping by yourself or with your other LO, do people seem to go out of their way to help? Do the cashiers seem more insistent on sending someone out with you to help with the bags, and have you taken them up on it?: I don't go grocery shopping...DH does since he is the SAHD.

In your most recent dreams, are you always pregnant? Always not? Sometimes are and sometimes not?: I can't remember my dreams anymore!

What is the hardest household chore for you to keep up on now that you are getting bigger and slowing down even more?: vacuuming. It takes all my energy so I don't even bother but every other week now.

Are there things that never bothered you much before you were pregnant, but now are the most annoying things ever?: I'm a little more irratable, especially with DH which sucks.

Something bad?: Hating this GD crap. I wish I didn't have to look at every single label before I eat something. I even have to pass up on some stuff because I'm not quite sure the carb content and I am borderline paranoid about going over my limit.

Something good?: vacation starts Thurs and I haven't failed a blood sugar level yet.

When you go grocery shopping by yourself or with your other LO, do people seem to go out of their way to help?

I haven't really thought about it, though- I don't do any heavy lifting (I take DH when we have to get heavy stuff like dog food and bottled water).

In your most recent dreams, are you always pregnant? Always not? Sometimes are and sometimes not?: Sometimes I am, sometimes not.

What is the hardest household chore for you to keep up on now that you are getting bigger and slowing down even more?: I thought I couldn't hate unloading the dishwasher any more than I already did, but yes, it is possible. Smile

Are there things that never bothered you much before you were pregnant, but now are the most annoying things ever?: I wish they would finish the dang road construction in our area, the exits I normally take are blocked off and I almost had a wreck yesterday because of the idiot way they have narrowed the highway down to one lane in some places, GRRRRRR.

Something bad?: Nah, I just like to vent.

Something good?: Very blessed to have made it almost to 32 weeks, yay!

I think i put off an aura of Don't talk to me. lol

Are there things that never bothered you much before you were pregnant, but now are the most annoying things ever?: I used to have the patience of Job. Now I'm leaning over dh while he is driving to honk his horn because he's too slow.

Something bad?: My MIL keeps talking about how HUGE Connor is and that I shouldn't bother packing newborn diapers and clothes for his take home. I guess he's just going to come home ready for college.

Something good?: The nursery is almost done.

EDD: Dec 14

How are you feeling: Uncomfortable. Lots of contractions. :confused:

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Tomorrow! Routine midwife visit.

When you go grocery shopping by yourself or with your other LO, do people seem to go out of their way to help? Do the cashiers seem more insistent on sending someone out with you to help with the bags, and have you taken them up on it?:

Not really. They always offer anyway, because I always have the 2 kids with me. They don't seem to be more helpful or insistent now that I'm hugely pregnant.

In your most recent dreams, are you always pregnant? Always not? Sometimes are and sometimes not?:

I never remember my dreams. Sad I only remember one recently - and I was pregnant, giving birth to a girl.

What is the hardest household chore for you to keep up on now that you are getting bigger and slowing down even more?:

Um, all of the above. Washing dishes are the the hardest since they're the most frequently done chore, and it kills my back to stand so far away from the counter with the belly in the way.

Are there things that never bothered you much before you were pregnant, but now are the most annoying things ever?:

I'm just more easily annoyed by random little things, or things that shouldn't be such a big deal.

Something bad?: Too many contractions the last 2 days. They go away when I lay down, but I can't really lay down all day. :confused:

Something good?: Maternity photo shoot this weekend! We still have some nice fall colours around so I bet they will turn out nice.
