I was down 3 lbs from my last weight check which was pp with #3. Then up 1 lbs from that on my last visit..

have you already thought about labor and delivery? I'm always in an emergency situation, so prob a hospital birth....

have you or when will you start making baby purchases? If it's a girl, we have it covered, boy (find out july 9th), then it's time to start shopping! I loved those huge consignment sales that pop up!! I do have some diapers that #3 gre out of, aka the kids neglected to give me the pack when I asked them to get diapers out of the closet.

are you planning a registry?
I just need diapers, there done! Oh crap, forgots about a double stroller. I prob won't have a shower. Only had one with #1.

when it comes to swimming this summer will you be baring the belly or covering it up? I bared it last year and plan to do the same. I never get big, so i just look fat. I'm going to look super funny all preggo and a 7 month old on my hip. I still have my cute maternity bikini from #1

I was up a few pounds at my first appointment but that scale reads higher than the one I have at home. I think it's all just bloat/water weight as I always go back to my pre-preg weight by the mornings.

Natural birth in the hospital like last time. May hire a doula this time around especially if things aren't complicated like before.

have you or when will you start making baby purchases?
I have picked up a couple of neutral sleepers at a consignment sale and a couple when I needed to spend a few more dollars at Carter's to use a coupon. Other then that we're just listing out the things we need until we find out the sex.

are you planning a registry?
I don't plan on it. Not expecting a shower and barely anyone shopped by the registry we made for DD anyway.

when it comes to swimming this summer will you be baring the belly or covering it up?
When it's obvious that I have a baby bump and don't just look fat, I have no reservations about showing it off as far as wearing tanks and things like that, but I won't be sporting a bikini.

Good questions!

Where is everyone with weight gain?
I think I have gained maybe 3 pounds so far. I think I am going to start piling on the weight quickly now that I have reached my second trimester though. I already feel bigger than last week.

have you already thought about labor and delivery? a home birth..hospital...water..will you use a midwife or doula?
I am still thinking about doing a natural childbirth. The last 2 times I had an epidural, I had bad experiences with it. I really don't want another one or any drugs that might make me feel loopy either. I still want to do it at the hospital with my OB though because I love her and I love our hospital. I am exploring options on how to make that happen because I honestly think it would be easier to do it at a birthing center or at home, but I trust/love my Dr so much that I don't want anyone else to deliver this baby.

have you or when will you start making baby purchases?
We haven't made any yet, but I will probably start after my 20 week u/s.

are you planning a registry?
Yes because DS is 6 now and I have NOTHING left from when he was a baby except some of his baby clothes. I still need everything. My mom wants to throw me a shower in September so I figured I would register for a few things we really need.

when it comes to swimming this summer will you be baring the belly or covering it up?
I plan on wearing one of my current bikinis as long as possible because it seems to fit nicely in the bbs & bottom even though I am starting to gain weight. I have no problem showing of my pregnant belly, but if I start to look like a whale in the bikini then I will probably purchase a maternity bathing suit or tankini. We'll see.

I am up 2lbs so far, but it depends on the day, sometimes I go back to normal, sometimes I'm up those 2lbs.

We are having a hospital birth because I am having a repeat c-section.

have you or when will you start making baby purchases?
I'll wait to find out (July 6th!). If it's a girl I'll just need a coming home outfit, nothing else. A boy and I'll need everything.

are you planning a registry?
No, I had a Baby shower for my son, but not for my daughter. My step-mom asked if she could throw me on this time and I said that I would love just a diaper shower.

I'll be covering it up! My stomach looks like a road map.

oh wow, I'm SO jealous of all of you and your tiny weight gains. I've been piling on the weight. UGH! I had done so well losing weight this last year and got down to a teeny 9% body fat, but it's all coming back! I'm up (gulp) 7 lbs already!

have you already thought about labor and delivery? a home birth..hospital...water..will you use a midwife or doula?
i will be doing a hospital birth with my OB, but I'm considering a natural delivery.

have you or when will you start making baby purchases?
hmm... not sure yet!

are you planning a registry?
probably not. I love the idea of a diaper shower, but I have had 3 baby showers in the past so I would feel bad doing another one.

when it comes to swimming this summer will you be baring the belly or covering it up?
I cover up anyway because I have stretch marks (a road map! haha love that!). I wear a strapless, polka dot tankini with a solid mini skirted bottom--wearing it right now since we just got back from swimming!! It's pretty cute. I also just purchased a tankini from Athleta. After I outgrow those, I will just buy a maternity suit from Target.

down about 4lb, was underweight to begin with so the midwife is not very happy with me Sad I have honestly been doing my best!!

i will be planning a VBAC in the hospital. Would have preferred a birthing unit but none of them will take a VBAC around here, I suppose If anything goes wrong its not a bad thing to be right there.

have you or when will you start making baby purchases?
A bit later... I think extra storage will be our first purchase. Our house has no laundry/storage cupboards so we have no where to store baby stuff.

are you planning a registry?
No, its not really the 'done' thing here in NZ.

Well considering that the loose skin I hide when I am not pregnant looks normal for once, I will definitely be baring my belly!!

So far up about 2 lbs. I can't complain though, b/c with DS2 I think I was up about 7-10lbs by now.

have you already thought about labor and delivery?
Oh yes. I'll be having another medicated hospital birth, but the unknown always scares me. Eeeee!

have you or when will you start making baby purchases?
This will def depend on if the baby is a boy or girl. We have everything possible for a boy and NOTHING for a girl. If it's a girl, helloooooo shopping spree!

are you planning a registry?
No. No baby shower for this little one.

Haven't thought about that one. I only have a one piece right now, so either way, looks like I'll need some kind of swimsuit. Or better yet, stay away from the pool when I become huge! LMAO!

I honestly don't know. I have been avoiding the scale...before I was prego and since. At my dr. appt. I didn't look. I'm sure I am up--I NEVER lose weight while pregnant, just gain (prob cuz I have to eat so often).

have you already thought about labor and delivery? a home birth..hospital...water..will you use a midwife or doula?
I will be doing a natural hospital birth.

have you or when will you start making baby purchases?
It all depends on what we are having. If it's a girl, we are set. If it's a boy, I need to go through all of ds's old clothes and go from there.

are you planning a registry?
No, it's my 6th and I would feel bad since we have so much stuff already.

when it comes to swimming this summer will you be baring the belly or covering it up?
Considering the fact that I blow up when I am pregnant, I will be covering it up--I liked the "road map" comment haha, that sounds a bit familiar! I already have a maternity top to wear, but I think I will be able to wear my normal suit for a little while.
