    What's your prediction: Going to be early, late, or on-time? I went into labor 3 days after DD's due date. I'm hoping for earlier than that So being in labor or delivering by the 5th.

    How are you feeling physically? Tired, Run Down, Sore, Big

    How are you feeling mentally? Exhausted

    How are your appts going? Really well. I started talking about delivery plans with my midwife last week.

    Any new baby buys?
    I've been getting little things lately that aren't really "needs" but instead are splurges

    Are you starting to think of labour and delivery yet? Yes ! I'm hoping not to need pitocin this time around and labor naturally as long as possible. The Pit made my contractions go from not able to feel them to excruciating pain with no in between. It was really not what I was expecting so I'm hoping to avoid it. I've started talking to my midwife about options if my water breaks again or if I just start contractions.

    Any new cravings or aversions? Today my boss made a cake for her son's birthday. It smelled so good ! I stopped and got stuff to make funfetti blondie bars.

    Have a new belly pic?
    This is a comparison of me pregnant with our daughter and now with Nolan. I'm freaking huge !

    What are your plans for the Holidays? We are spending Christmas Eve with DH's family. We will do Santa and our presents at the apartment in the morning and probably make breakfast. At some point we will go to my mom and my dad's houses to spend time with them opening presents and eating

    Anything else?

    How far along are you? 31 Weeks

    What's your prediction: Going to be early, late, or on-time? Well, my Dr said I'm at a 'slightly increased' risk of going early and she'd giving me extra monitoring, so with all of that, I'm assuming I'll go late!!

    How are you feeling physically? Ugh. The pelvic/SPD pain gets pretty bad sometimes, and trying to find a position I can sleep in that's not painful seems to be the biggest challenge.

    How are you feeling mentally? OK-ish. I seem to alternate between feeling pretty excited and like I've got this, and then the next I'm scared I'm going to screw something up!

    How are your appts going? Good. Up to appts every 2 weeks with the Dr, but it seems like so much more!! Every 2 weeks there, every 2-3 weeks at the GD clinic, NST at 32 and 36 weeks, anesthetic consult a couple of weeks ago.....I'm starting to think I spend more time going to appts than I do working!

    Any new baby buys? car seat! So now we've got a bassinet, nursery furniture, and the car seat. And I've been shopping on craigslist and 2nd hand sites for clothes, a swing, etc.

    Are you starting to think of labour and delivery yet? Yah, since I have a severe (potentially fatal) allergy to Anesthetic medication, I had to go for an anesthetic consult. I had planned on getting an epidural at some point, but because of this, I was pretty much told that when I hit 4 or 5 cm's, they have to place the epidural line then. So I'm really not looking forward to potentially still having another 6-10 hours of labour where I'm trapped in the bed b/c of an epidural!

    Any new cravings or aversions? No, really nothing. However not going crazy with all the Christmas goodies and baking is going to be a challenge....

    Have a new belly pic?


    What are your plans for the Holidays? We are spending Christmas day at home! We see my dad and his wife on X-mas eve (which is also my brother's B-day), then we're finally spending Xmas day at home together and hosting dinner with my mom & step dad coming over, then my mom's on Boxing day, and then DH's family have invited themselves down for 'their' xmas (and xmas dinner) at our place for the 29th! So, at nearly 8 months pregnant, I'll be making 2 Christmas dinners! I was totally looking forward to doing the first, now I'm just pissy about doing the 2nd for DH's family! (especially since they had said they were coming down on X-mas day, but then changed their minds)

    Anything else?
    We started our prenatal classes, and go for the hospital tour next week.
    .....And I just realized that this is a very long post!

    How far along are you? 31 weeks tomorrow!
    What's your prediction: Going to be early, late, or on-time? Went early with my first, late with my second, so I have no clue!
    How are you feeling physically? Starting to get tired, and achy. Baby feels like she is trying to get out!
    How are you feeling mentally? Pretty good
    How are your appts going? Great, up 23lbs total, BPs always perfect. I can't complain
    Any new baby buys? Need to get car seat soon! We have been procrastinating getting ready really bad.
    Are you starting to think of labour and delivery yet? Of course. Can't wait!
    Any new cravings or aversions? I eat everything. I can't eat salads anymore, when I used to crave them really bad. Nothing really makes me sick. I love chocolate and sandwiches and cereal.
    Have a new belly pic? No, I hate having to deal with photo bucket just to upload a pic on here. If anyone has any better ideas, let me know!
    What are your plans for the Holidays? I work Christmas, but will Eve off, so we will do Christmas then. Just relaxed time at home I hope.

    How far along are you? 29 weeks

    What's your prediction: Going to be early, late, or on-time? My other 2 came on their own at 37+6 and 37+2, so I'm guessing this one will be similar.

    How are you feeling physically? Really, really tired. Pelvic/SPD pain is worse this time and can be hard to sleep.

    How are you feeling mentally? Fine, starting to panic that I need to get our birth kit stuff ready (planning a home birth)

    How are your appts going? Fine. My next 2 appointments are 3 weeks apart (because of Christmas) then I'm onto every 2 week appointments!

    Any new baby buys? No, we don't need much. I'm going to make some hats, a car seat canopy, and maybe a blanket.

    Are you starting to think of labour and delivery yet? Yeah, I'm using Hypnobabies and started the program a while ago, so I guess you could say I'm practicing for it every day. lol

    Any new cravings or aversions? Nope.

    Have a new belly pic? I have been REALLY BAD about taking belly pics.

    What are your plans for the Holidays? Both our families live nearby, so we'll be busy with that, but not traveling far

    Anything else? We bought a used minivan last week

    How far along are you? 31 weeks 5 days

    What's your prediction: Going to be early, late, or on-time? I have no clue!

    How are you feeling physically? I've been sick with a cold for about 2 weeks and I think I'm finally getting over it. I also have pretty bad sciatic pain.

    How are you feeling mentally? Good. I'm both excited and terrified at the same time. I'm terrified of change...it's been just Hubby and me for 12 years so adding another human being to our household scares the cr@p out of me! BUT, at the same time I'm extremely grateful since it wasn't exactly easy to get to this point and I know Hubby will make an amazing father.

    How are your appts going?Boring. I'm seeing my OB every 2 weeks and so far everything's been great. I'm anemic but other than that everything's good.

    Any new baby buys? TONS! We're buying everything ourselves so we have tons left to buy. It's been really fun picking everything out. I need to quit buying decorations and go back to buying the essential! lol The nursery is about 75% done...I'm having a hard time finding curtains and a lamp that I like. I might just buy some temporary curtains for now so I don't keep stressing about it.

    Are you starting to think of labour and delivery yet? Not really. I'm not ready to think about it quite yet. We have a private birthing and newborn care class on January 5th. The instructor is coming to our home to give us a crash course so I'm just going to not think about it until then!

    Any new cravings or aversions? I crave everything!

    Have a new belly pic? 31 Weeks!



    What are your plans for the Holidays? We're going to celebrate at MILs house.

    Anything else? We're all getting so close! Eeek!
