6. Have you made any recent baby buys? How are you feeling about where you are with your baby preparations?Graco Snugride 35 car seats with extra bases. We are going to get the Snap n Go double stroller. I think it has been discontinued so I need to get that ordered ASAP.

1. Name Mia
2. EDD January 3rd
3. How many weeks along are you?33 weeks, 4 days
4. Next appointment date? NST & BPP this morning. Both went great despite the news that my bile salt levels went up. Besides the u/s we just discussed doing an amnio at 37 weeks and inducing once we know his lungs are good though we all seem to doubt we'll see an amnio. Upped my ICP meds to help with the symptoms. Next NST is Friday.
5. Cravings/Aversions? Eating has been a real challenge, but anything ice cold, sweet or chocolate sounds great.
6. Have you made any recent baby buys? How are you feeling about where you are with your baby preparations? We picked up some boyish receiving blankets last night. We use them for burp rags when they're too small for swaddling. I feel okay but we need to order a new co-sleeper as soon as we can afford to, which should be this week. Smile
7. Thanksgiving plans? Dinner at the in-laws. Second dinner or sandwiches and deserts with my family.
8. How is DH/SO feeling about the pregnancy? Are they excited, in denial, anxious? I'd say mostly excited. He is very nervous at how my contractions have been lately and the huge spike in my ICP levels, but he has total faith in me and my med team.
9. Gripes/Complaints? The ICP makes it extremely difficult to eat. I also have been having awful insomnia and DD hardly naps anymore so it makes for really long days. I wish the contractions would stop, but if I can get a good chunk of rest in each day they aren't patterned.
10. Share something fun that's happened recently! My mom sent up a HUGE box of clothes for the kids that she ordered online. We were not expecting it at all but it was a great surprise as it will easily get DD to/through the spring and this LO won't need any clothes until 3-6 months +. Today's u/s was so amazing. He looks so healthy and content. It made me feel so good!

2. EDD January 11, 2013
3. How many weeks along are you? 32 weeks 4 days
4. Next appointment date? Ultrasound tomorrow
5. Cravings/Aversions? All the stuff I can't have, but especially Lindor chocolate truffles
6. Have you made any recent baby buys? How are you feeling about where you are with your baby preparations? Bought a few more blankets, bottles, pacifiers and my nursing bras last week so I'm feeling pretty prepared. Still wanting to buy a new cover for the carseat I was given by a friend.
7. Thanksgiving plans? Cooking the whole meal at my house and having a few family over.
8. How is DH/SO feeling about the pregnancy? Are they excited, in denial, anxious? DH is super excited for our little girl to get here but since he just had his vasectomy 3 days ago, he will be waiting a while to put together the crib. Good thing we have a bassinet:) That is also making him a little sentimental about this being our last baby.
9. Gripes/Complaints? Heartburn, pain all over, waddling like an old person, not sleeping...I could go on and on but I won't. Just counting down the days until she is born!
