Name/Age: Lesli / 32
DH Name/Age: Russ / 30
Siblings: Savanna /almost 4
How far along: 36 weeks
Prediction: I think either on time or late for me...I was a week late with dd (and I was so disappointed) this time around I am expecting to go late and hopefully will go on time Wink
Feeling?: physically I am slowing down I can't do much, nights are hard with heartburn and backaches and the last few days a sinus headache Sad emotionally I'm fine, I get really grumpy with dd and dh but I hope they don't hate me forever
Appt: last appointment was great, next appt is on Friday dr will do GBS test...not sure if he is checking me or not? Will have weekly appts from here until baby!
New baby buys?: I bought my boppy! (I had a borrowed one with dd that I had to give back) all I need now is my carseat, I have some friends (Bunco group) who are buying this for me, hope they get it soon! Otherwise I am ready for baby!
Labor/delivery: really not thinking about it, I really do think I'm in denial oh we'll it will hit me one of these days
Hospital bag packed?: see above....no....I need to start my list. I know my pillows (body pillow) are a must, my iPad, and books to keep me occupied are important
Anything else?: DH will be home next Monday (17th) I miss him but it has been nice to not be pestered for S-E-X every freaking night! Lol
Belly pic?: I will have a new one on FB tomorrow....it is too hard for me to get one on here! If we aren't FB friends, then we need to be! Lol

Do you predict you will go early, late, or on time?: Desperately hoping for early!
How are you feeling physically and emotionally?: Physically, this has been the hardest pregnancy for me! I don't know if it's because I have 5 other children I am trying to keep up with, the fact that this is my 6th pregnancy, or my age, or what, but I ache all the time and I can hardly walk by the end of the day. The heartburn is beyond annoying, too... Emotionally, I'm grumpy. I hate it, but it's true! I'm trying to be better, but it's REALLY hard right now.
How was your last appointment /when is next appointment?: My next appointment is on Thursday. I will have my GBS test, then go to weekly appointments. YAY!
Any new buys for baby?: Nope...just need to buy more diapers!
Are you thinking about labor/delivery?: Yes, but trying not to...it's kinda freaking me out this time.
Is your hospital bag packed? Name 2 important items in said bag: Almost packed...I still need a few things for me, but baby stuff is all packed. I have babies going home outfit and blanket.
Anything else you want to share?: Not that I can think of right now. I'm on here enough during the day...
Belly pics?: I will try to take a new one tomorrow or Thursday...I just dread using PB!
