I can't believe we're already in November!
So, as we're entering the home stretch, how is everyone doing?

How far along are you?
How have you been feeling?
Had any recent or upcoming appointments?
Feeling any new movements?
Any names decided on or being considered?
Any baby buys? What are you doing to get ready for baby?
Any cravings or aversions?
Have a new pic to show?
Anything else?

How have you been feeling? I've been better. The shortness of breath/dizziness/near fainting are really affecting my life
Had any recent or upcoming appointments? I have an appointment soonish but I still haven't found a new provider so I'm not looking forward to it at all
Feeling any new movements? Baby boy is all over the place Smile
Any names decided on or being considered? Possibly Austin.
Any baby buys? What are you doing to get ready for baby? We haven't bought anything yet.
Any cravings or aversions? Not really right now.
Have a new pic to show? I really need to get the pics off of Ed's phone but he seems to be forever working lately.

How have you been feeling? Not too bad. Still pretty exhausted, but I'm on iron supplements now and they seem to be helping a bit. Other than that, I just feel like someone kicked me in the crotch. With steel toe work boots.

Had any recent or upcoming appointments? Nov. 15th is my next one, and then moving to appts every 2 weeks after that!

Feeling any new movements? I think I felt baby's hiccups for the first time! didn't last long, but it was so cool to feel!

Any names decided on or being considered? Still have a pretty long list that we keep adding too....

Any baby buys? What are you doing to get ready for baby? We're actually doing pretty good in this department. All our nursery furniture got delivered and DH is slowly putting it together, I've started buying some extra food each week and putting it in the freezer, and I've been doing a lot of shopping on craigslist & other second hand sites picking up clothes, bassinet, etc.

Any cravings or aversions? Still nothing much. I can't say I've really had many cravings at all this pregnancy (so far...)

Have a new pic to show?

Anything else?
I had a minor panic attack the other day when I realized it was only 14 weeks until my due date! Hopefully I've got 12 weeks of work left, but the count down is officially on! I think with the holidays coming up, the last few months are going to fly by!

How have you been feeling? Round ligament pain no longer as bad. Starting to have to pee more. Enjoying the last bit of the second trimester Smile

Had any recent or upcoming appointments? I have my first appt with my OBGYN this Thursday (switching from the midwife I was seeing).

Feeling any new movements? All the time! His kicks are sometimes painful and he usually waits until I am just about to fall asleep LOL.

Any names decided on or being considered? Maksim Aleksandar (his nickname will be Max). DH's name is Aleksandar and his nickname is Alex.

Any baby buys? Surprisingly no! Not one thing LOL. By this time I had a travel system and half a bedroom FULL of stuff for my first LO. I am waiting for Black Friday and Cyber Monday to start picking up a few things.

What are you doing to get ready for baby? Eating healthier, sleeping more, relaxing and keeping calm, exercising, and talking to my DD about how lucky her brother is going to be to have such an awesome big sister.

Any cravings or aversions? Junk food grosses me out and I crave fresh fruit and veggies.
