    Default Jan. check in!

    Can you belive it's Jan. already??? And we already have so many babies in this board born! For those of us still waiting, it won't be long now.

    For those still pregnant:

    How are you feeling??
    Do you have a date in your mind that you think you'll deliver on?
    Is your bag all packed?
    If you have other LO's at home, what do they think about adding a new baby into the mix?
    Are you dilated/effaced at all?
    Are you doing any natural things/old wives tales to get labor going?

    For those who had their babies:

    How are you feeling??
    How is baby doing?
    Are you breastfeeding or formula feeding? How is that going?
    Is baby a good sleeper?
    Did you get any kind of "baby blues"?
    If you have other LO's, how are they adjusting to having a new baby in the house?

    How are you feeling??
    Not so great. I got either influenza or an influenza like illness this week complete with difficult to manage fevers, body aches, severe hacking cough, etc. I think my working days are done because I was still fevering yesterday and my symptoms are kind of unpredictable at this point. I was going to be done Friday regardless.
    Do you have a date in your mind that you think you'll deliver on? I am guessing January 10th since I think my induction day will be that day. I am hoping January 9th.
    Is your bag all packed? Ha ha still no. I did go over what I wanted to be in there with DH in case he had to come back home and pack it. We are not too far from the hospital. I might be able to do that today.
    If you have other LO's at home, what do they think about adding a new baby into the mix? My DS is old enough to be excited and worried, because "babies cry a lot."
    Are you dilated/effaced at all? Yes, 1.5-2, but I don't give any credence to that. In my first labor I went from 2-10 in a few hours. When my body is ready to have these babies, it will go into high gear.
    Are you doing any natural things/old wives tales to get labor going? We did, and then I got sick. Now I really don't want to bring labor on because I want my babies to be protected from whatever badness I am dealing with.

    How are you feeling?? tired of being pregnant and ready to have this baby!
    Do you have a date in your mind that you think you'll deliver on? I am thinking Jan 7th but I hope any day now
    Is your bag all packed? yes it has been for a while
    If you have other LO's at home, what do they think about adding a new baby into the mix? Dylan is getting excited but wants it to be a boy even though he keeps calling her baby sister.
    Are you dilated/effaced at all? 1.5 and 50%
    Are you doing any natural things/old wives tales to get labor going? I DTD, walked the mall for 5 hours, got a pedi, and ate spicy food.

    How are you feeling? Feel ok nights are the worst, I feel pretty good during the day
    Do you have a date in mind? No, just wondering if I will go overdue with this one too....I had a great induction with dd but I really want to go into labor on my own!
    Is your bag packed? It's mostly packed! Will have to add last min things that I use daily but I have a list on my iPad
    What does other lo's think? DD is so excited for baby sister to get here, I hope it stays that way
    Are you dilated? 1 cm
    Are you doing any natural things? Just DTD. wish we had a mall or something I could go walking in too cold and icy to walk outside

    How are you feeling?? Pretty good! My emotions have been great which is a big relief as I have a long history with generalized anxiety disorder, depression and PPD. None of that this time around. Physically things take a toll on me really easily so I'm not used to that.
    How is baby doing? Great! He's such a mellow guy, hardly ever cries. Has days and nights backwards but that's about it.
    Are you breastfeeding or formula feeding? How is that going? EBFing! Getting easier every day. His latch is great and he's nursing both sides more consistently which is great.
    Is baby a good sleeper? He's pretty good. He does anywhere from 2-3 hours, we just have to get his nights/days back on track.
    Did you get any kind of "baby blues"? No thankfully!
    If you have other LO's, how are they adjusting to having a new baby in the house? DD is adjusting as well as I'd expect a two year old to be. She gets jealous sometimes, but her ability to tell me that she wants me to put the baby down or do something is a huge help.

    For those who had their babies:

    How are you feeling??Really good, a little sleepy and a little chubby.
    How is baby doing? Really good. Hardly ever cries, has quite a bit of quiet awake periods which I'm enjoying.Her first dr. appt is tomorrow.
    Are you breastfeeding or formula feeding? How is that going? Nursing well, although I think we still need to work on her latching technique.Having some pain during breastfeeding that I'm working to resolve.
    Is baby a good sleeper? Sleeps good but hasn't been falling into a deep sleep at night until 2-4am.
    Did you get any kind of "baby blues"? Had a slight meltdown yesterday morning after only 2 hours of sleep. Cried when my oldest son (1 texted me from his dad's house to tell Emily he misses her
    If you have other LO's, how are they adjusting to having a new baby in the house? All of them are in love, all of them wanting to hold her. My 3 year old is adjusting pretty well although needing a little more attention.

    How are you feeling?? Pretty crummy....I only got 1 1/2 hours of sleep last night between the heartburn, upset stomach, and painful BH. (TMI) I'm also extremely gassy....my stomach is always upset and it is so frustrating. It makes me feel like I have no room in my stomach, and the days that I feel downright awful are the ones where she is super active! I'd rather feel her move though, so I just deal with it!
    Do you have a date in your mind that you think you'll deliver on? January 21, but I'd love to go a bit earlier!
    Is your bag all packed? Yes, except for a few last minute things. I will put those in the night before.
    If you have other LO's at home, what do they think about adding a new baby into the mix? The girls are so excited. They are counting down the days with me. I don't think Cameron realizes what is going to happen. It won't hit him until he sees her and we bring her home.
    Are you dilated/effaced at all? No, but my cervix is softening.
    Are you doing any natural things/old wives tales to get labor going? No...not really. I'm not 37 weeks yet, but I'll start doing a lot of walking this weekend. I've got a busy week at work next week, but then I'm all go for baby!

    How are you feeling?? Good! My pelvis, hips and back constantly hurt but Im weird and LOVE being pregnant lol and this pregnancy has been a BREEZE compared to the others
    Do you have a date in your mind that you think you'll deliver on?Not really. =/ 15-17 are off limits because of Rowans Birthday. 1.21 was my mommas birthday and idk how I feel about that day yet.
    Is your bag all packed? Yes! Added nursing pads and my flip flops a few days ago!
    If you have other LO's at home, what do they think about adding a new baby into the mix? Rowan is going to not handle this well. He is Mommas baby and doesnt like to share me. Im very nervous about that and I even felt so bad about it at the beginning I thought about adoption! Kaylee is excited, but she said she doesnt want the baby to sleep in her and bubbys room because they are best friends lol
    Are you dilated/effaced at all? 2cm & long
    Are you doing any natural things/old wives tales to get labor going? Walking, sex and taking red raspberry leaf.Nothing drastic lol
