EDD: December 13

How are you feeling: Feeling pretty sluggish today and I have an upset stomach Sad

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Thursday...just a checkup.

Do you already have a take home outfit for the baby? Want to share?: Not yet. I am going to wait to see what I get at my shower.

Do you or SO/DH have any cute or funny nicknames for the baby? Other relatives?: Well, since we told everyone we are calling her Evelyn, people already ask me, "How's Evie doing?" I call her thumper because she is constantly thumping me in there.

Are you planning on dressing up for Halloween? If so, are you doing anything that is thematic to your "big" belly?: I'm normally not a fan of dressing up, but since we were invited to a party, we have to come up with some costumes. I would like to incorporate the pregnancy, but I'm having trouble coming up with an idea that I really like.

What is the next thing you plan to get/hope to get for baby?: Furniture for the nursery.

Does it feel like you have a long way to go to the finish line, or does it feel like it is coming up too fast?: both!

Something bad?: I dropped my phone in a glass of water (don't ask)!

Something good?: I think I had some BH contractions today. I know that doesn't necessarily sound good, but to me it means my body is finally starting to prepare for childbirth!

What is the next thing you plan to get/hope to get for baby?: Paint her room and decorate the nursery!

Does it feel like you have a long way to go to the finish line, or does it feel like it is coming up too fast?: Fast, and that's good!

Go as a watermellon smuggler!;) (That's what I tell my students when they ask if I am having a baby- I say "No, I really like watermellons and am smuggling them over the North Carolina border one at a time!":)

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Next week for a cervical check and growth measurements.

Do you already have a take home outfit for the baby? Want to share?: We got piles of used preemie, newborn, and 0-3 outfits that we need to sort and wash. I'm sure we'll find something cute in there! And I'll toss in a few different sizes just in case. Babies come big in my family but, y'know, twins come early so they might be little.

Do you or SO/DH have any cute or funny nicknames for the baby? Other relatives?: My friends and I all call them the babbies from the "How is Babby Formed" thing (http://www.somethingawful.com/flash/shmorky/babby.swf). There's a lot of jokes about them not being able to frigth back and them being on the news this mroing.

Are you planning on dressing up for Halloween? If so, are you doing anything that is thematic to your "big" belly?: I really hope to still be pregnant for Halloween! I bought a shirt iron-on skeleton with twin skeletons in the belly.

What is the next thing you plan to get/hope to get for baby?: I am building a giant Amazon cart full of boob gear, mostly.

Does it feel like you have a long way to go to the finish line, or does it feel like it is coming up too fast?: Uh... yes.

Something bad?: There is no escaping a VERY scary scale number that is coming up probably at my next appointment.

Something good?: My boyfriend went out for groceries yesterday and couldn't find the frozen vegetables that I wanted so he bought frozen pizza and ice cream instead. Good boy!

Name: Julie/Jules

EDD: 12/5

How are you feeling: I was feeling pretty good up until this weekend. Now my hip and lower back hurt every night, I wake up 2 x a night to EAT, I am having a lot of BH and basic uncomfortable feelings in my belly. Feels like there is a big, concrete brick sitting in there. And she is head down pushing on my bladder. That is a horrible feeling! I'm starting to feel down that I have 2 months left and already feel so bad.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Next Weds, just a prenatal visit.

Do you already have a take home outfit for the baby? Want to share?: You know, I never even had an official take home outfit for my DS. I think I just put him in a onsie... I kept the little shirt and hat and blanket they gave him to me in. Smile For this one, I have a few cute outfits, including the one DS picked out for her. I will take a couple of options since I don't know how big she will be, but if she fits in DS's outfit, I will probably bring her home in that.

Do you or SO/DH have any cute or funny nicknames for the baby? Other relatives?: My DH and I still just call her the baby, since no name is fully decided yet. My mom insists on calling her Harriet, and my Dad hates that so he calls her Juliet.

Are you planning on dressing up for Halloween? If so, are you doing anything that is thematic to your "big" belly?: I LOVE halloween... it is my fave holiday. But... I'm not sure I will do anything special for dress up. If I fit into my witch costume, I might wear that to pass out candy... DH is going to have to take DS trick or treating as I don't think I will be up for it.

What is the next thing you plan to get/hope to get for baby?: Hmmm, I only need a handful of things. Maybe a curtain for her room, but I'm in no hurry for that. Maybe a new sling?

Does it feel like you have a long way to go to the finish line, or does it feel like it is coming up too fast?: I still feel like I have a long way to go, although it is going relatively fast. I think since I became so uncomfortable, it seems so far away.

Something bad?: Just feeling like poop and barely able to function in the evening hours. So much stuff needs to get done around our house and I can barely cook dinner.

Something good?: Last week at my doc visit, I found out I passed my GD test, my blood pressure was the lowest it has ever been, my weight gain is waning so she is thinking I will hit 32 lbs at the most, and baby is measuring more on track. Smile Just a week and a half ahead, which would be a perfect time for her to come. OH, and my DH is FiNALLY getting relief at work and they will cut back his hours from 55 to a more normal 40 a week. He gets Fridays off and can help with all the house stuff that never seems to get done... that and we get to see him more. Yahoo

How are you feeling: exhausted, stressed, and extremely uncomfortable.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: tomorrow...just a check in

Do you or SO/DH have any cute or funny nicknames for the baby? Other relatives?: surprisingly, no! Sometimes I call her "monkey" if she's acting up and bouncing around in there, but I call my cats by that nickname too :rolleyes:

Are you planning on dressing up for Halloween? If so, are you doing anything that is thematic to your "big" belly?: my daughter and her half sister are going as a jedi and queen amidala, so I was going to order a giant Jabba the Hutt costume... lol. But probably wont actually dress up....

How are you feeling: Depends on the day....lol Some days I feel fantastic, others I feel like dying.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Monday for my 3 hour GTT.

Do you already have a take home outfit for the baby? Want to share?: Not yet.

Do you or SO/DH have any cute or funny nicknames for the baby? Other relatives?: Nope, no nicknames yet. Brynna calls him "Bubba" most of the time.

Are you planning on dressing up for Halloween? If so, are you doing anything that is thematic to your "big" belly?: Everybody keeps asking me if I am going to paint my belly. If the weather looks like it won't be too cold then I just might. If not then I planned on getting a pumpkin shirt and wearing that. My belly is big enough so I'd look like a jack o lantern....lol

What is the next thing you plan to get/hope to get for baby?: Hoping to get his travel system too. That's really the only big thing we need.

Does it feel like you have a long way to go to the finish line, or does it feel like it is coming up too fast?: It's a mixture of both. I can't believe I am 28 weeks already and then at the same time can't believe I have 12 weeks left!!

Something bad?: Failed my one hour GTT so next week I have to do the three hour. That makes 3 GTTs this pregnancy!! UGH.

Does it feel like you have a long way to go to the finish line, or does it feel like it is coming up too fast?: Definitely coming too fast, I just don't feel prepared yet as far as baby stuff goes, because I don't have his bassinet or stroller. I'm ready as far as the whole mom thing/new baby goes for sure!

Something bad?: It's my Monday...

Something good?: It's raining and cool finally here in Vegas, so when I get off work, I'm going home to nap!! (God willing, if the kids can stay quiet lol!)
