Name: Jules

EDD: 12/5 or 6?

How are you feeling: Besides this damn cold, I am feeling pretty good. Actually the best I have felt for the whole pregnancy! But I'm sure that will change in the next few weeks as I continue to get bigger and more and more uncomfortable.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Sept. 28, bi-weekly prenatal checks now. Hopefully will hear the results of my GD test then too.

For working mom's, how close to your due date do you plan on working:Since I have a desk job that I work from home, it really isn't much of an issue to work up until I go into labor, so that is the plan

For SAHM's, are you making any plans leading to baby's birth for help or to slow down?:

If you have other children, are they excited for LO: I think so?! Some days he seems really excited and others he could care less. I am jealous of those of you whose little ones felt the baby move, as I can't even get my DS to keep his hand there long enough to feel anything. He was laying on my belly one day and felt the baby kick and seemed somewhat amazed. I'm not sure he knows exactly what it all means, but in a way I think he does bc he has been extra cuddly lately.

Are you already slowing down a lot or still keeping yourself pretty busy?: I have so much to do all the time, it is hard to slow down, but I definitely am going at life at a slower pace

What is one thing you look forward to doing/eating/whatever after you aren't prego anymore?: I'm looking forward to being able to bend over and see my toes!

What's your sign? Your DH/SO sign?: I'm a cancer and DH is a sagitarrius. The cool part is my DS is a cancer, and this baby should be a sagitarrius!

Something bad?: I'm STILL sick! It has been well over a week and a half. Although I am feeling better, I'm still sick... sound sick too. Hoping to be better 100% by the weekend. OH, and I lost my driver's license. DOH

Something good?: Got the dang GD test out of the way. That drink made me feel lightheaded, and then when I had the sugar crash, I was so tired, and got a terrible headache and heartburn. Glad that is over. Hopefully I passed and don't have to do the 3 hour!

Name: Sheila

EDD: Dec 14 (but no later than Nov 30 in reality)

How are you feeling: Exceptionally tired, requiring 12-16 hours a day of sleep.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Sept 24 for the weekly cervical check and ultrasound

For working moms, how close to your due date do you plan on working: I was taken out at 26 weeks.

Are you already slowing down a lot or still keeping yourself pretty busy?: Slowed to a halt!

What is one thing you look forward to doing/eating/whatever after you aren't prego anymore?: Exercise. Swimming especially, but even just walking down the driveway would be nice.

What's your sign? Your DH/SO sign?: I'm very much a center-of-attention Leo and my boyfriend is absolutely a homebody Cancer.

Something bad?: The house is getting so gross. I didn't realize all the little things that just wouldn't get done now that I can't do it and my boyfriend's time is completely taken up by his new job and taking care of absolutely everything for me (all our dishes, laundry, cooking, shopping, random errands, etc.) It's just all the little things that don't really matter but that are adding up ... neither of us have watered the front lawn in two weeks, the stove hasn't been wiped down, the dishes haven't made it back into the cupboards in a while ...

Something good?: I get to spend another day napping with my dog.

EDD: December 26

How are you feeling: Pretty good. Being tired is slowly creeping back up on me. Also I get winded pretty easily so normal tasks like cleaning are taking longer and needing breaks which drives me crazy.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: 27th for a check-up and to schedule my Rhogam shot and GD test.

For working mom's, how close to your due date do you plan on working: I am praying I get to work right up until he is born because the only maternity leave I get is the paid leave that I have accumulated. Unless DH lands an amazing job or we win the lottery in the next few months...lol

For SAHM's, are you making any plans leading to baby's birth for help or to slow down?:

If you have other children, are they excited for LO: My daughter is crazy excited to meet her brother. She talks to and kisses my belly everyday. At night she lays in bed with me so she can feel her "bubba" (as she calls him) move. I hope this enthusiasm stays after he gets here. My step-son being the 12 year old boy he is doesn't really show much interest at this point.

Are you already slowing down a lot or still keeping yourself pretty busy?: I have to stay busy but it definitely takes me longer to accomplish what needs to be done. At work I am constantly on the move and then at home I have to do all the normal housework. Thankfully my hubby has started to help a little but he only does what he needs to do so that I don't gripe at him too much. But that's better than nothing.

What is one thing you look forward to doing/eating/whatever after you aren't prego anymore?: I look foward to not having to eat so frequently. It feels like I just get done eating and then in no time it's time to eat again. I have to eat small, frequent meals or I get super uncomfortable and sick feeling.

What's your sign? Your DH/SO sign?: My b-day is February 19th so for me it depends on which magazine/newspaper you go by. Some have me as an Aquarius and in others I am a Pisces because I am at the cut-off date. My hubby is a Sagittarius.

Something bad?: Knock on wood nothing really bad going on at the moment

Something good?: I am finally getting my house back in decent living conditions! Been working my butt off the last two days and it's finally gettng cleaned.

How are you feeling: Hit the gym yesterday so pretty good.

When is your next appt. and what is it for?: Oct 10 - Monthly & GD test

For working mom's, how close to your due date do you plan on working: All the way baby! Since Christmas & New Year's both fall on Sundays we get "roving" vacation days. I plan to work until Christmas w/end & then take vacation days so I can get the 2 paid holiday days & then start maternity leave the first week of 2012.

For SAHM's, are you making any plans leading to baby's birth for help or to slow down?:

If you have other children, are they excited for LO: YES! Idk about Ed's 16yo son, he isn't really one to share what's on his mind, but my little girls are really excited.

Are you already slowing down a lot or still keeping yourself pretty busy?: What's slow down? I never slow down, even when I want to.....who's going to do all the stuff that needs to get done?

What is one thing you look forward to doing/eating/whatever after you aren't prego anymore?: Are you kidding?!?! Almost everything...roller derby, soccer, back to running, losing weight, drinking beer or anything else I choose when I want.... Oh ya, finally getting my 1/2 sleeve on my arm completed.

What's your sign? Your DH/SO sign?: Both of us are Gemini's. Weird thing? My ex was a Gemini too. They are usually the calm twin & I am the freak. lol

Something bad?: I'm already sick of making brown bag lunches & Phoenix is only on her 3rd week of kindergarten. Sad

Something good?: I actually feel good today even tho I know it's going to be a long week & this is just becoming the norm. I am officially a soccer mom w/ a girl in grade school, a girl in preschool & a girl on the way.....YIKES!
