How many weeks are you? 18w2d
Have you had your big ultrasound yet? If not, when is it scheduled for? We had our gender u/s last week, but still have our anatomy u/s (and gender double-check ;)) tomorrow morning!
How are you feeling? Pretty good! I got a burst of energy a couple of weeks ago, though I still get tired out on long days. Still, much better than 10-15 weeks!
Have you settled on a name yet, or are you still working on it? I have a list of names I like (or don't hate), but I still want to go through one more baby-name book before talking the list over with DH. He's not a list-maker, so he probably will just start from my list too. Smile
Any projects you're working on for baby? Still working on switching the rooms around. DS's new room now has a closet organizer in it, still need to install closet and bedroom doors (it was an open-doorway office). Still need to clean some stuff out of that room. I'd say we will move DS in by the end of March at the latest. Then we can put the crib back in DS's old room and get that ready as a nursery.
Anything else? I'm only teaching 4 out of 15 students this week (the rest have conflicts), so it will be nice to have a bit of time off. I have a performance tonight, so today is a relaxing day so I can focus and memorize some last minute-changes, and then tomorrow I will start actually writing my dissertation!

How are you feeling? Large! running out of breath while just sitting down and talking, having trouble slepeing even though i am tired...
Have you settled on a name yet, or are you still working on it? NOT AT ALL! So freaking out over this - we have a bunch of girls names we love but can't think of even one boys name that we both don't hate!
Any projects you're working on for baby? yes - still have tons to do, but mostly throwing out old stuff in our attic while locating and brining out the baby stuff (bouncer seat, swing, newborn & 3 month old clothes, etc...), setting up crib, maybe buying a changing table or other device for storing baby's clothing that can't be hung up, getting out bottle, nursing, pumpong, newborn supplies, rearraging and making space for everything...
Anything else? not really - just totally stressed right now over the name situation and feels like i have ot hurry up and get all the above stuff done ASAP b/c I am also Maid of Honor in my SIL's wedding on May 12 - need to book / plan a bridal shower for March and Mom of bride is dragging on picking a date and venue! So I know in the next few weeks I will have tons to do! AHHHH Thank God I am stopping work in about 4 more weeks!

Name/age: Nicole/35 (but my birthday is on Thursday!)
DH/SO/age: Joshua/41 (we're the oldest parents so far)
Other kids? DD Sierra who will be 4 in May
How many weeks are you? 19w5d
Have you had your big ultrasound yet? If not, when is it scheduled for? Yes, all was great and we're on team green!
How are you feeling? Pretty good, just some hip pain that sadly my sister (a physical therapist) says will only get worse until I deliver. I have to work on my pelvic floor and do lots of kegels.
Have you settled on a name yet, or are you still working on it? We have two girl first names. We really cannot agree on any boy names.
Any projects you're working on for baby? Yes, we are working all over the house to get it ready to put on the market in a year, so doing all kinds of stuff. We need to get rid of stuff we moved and have not used in the past 7 years in our finished attic and set up an office and play area up there so we can get the baby's room organized (our current office/guest room). DD will stay in her room but get a big girl bed (she's in the convertible crib now) and a bookcase and we need a dresser for the baby. Lots to do for sure.
Anything else? I really want an ice cream sundae right now. I will not eat one, but I want one! I am trying so hard to eat healthy so I don't have to battle so hard to lose the weight afterwards. And the baby is kicking right now - I love that!

How many weeks are you? 18w3days
Have you had your big ultrasound yet? If not, when is it scheduled for? Yep and it's a BOY ( finally got a confession from DH that he had thought it would be a girl too, he is too cute!)
How are you feeling?No more nausea thank goodness, no cravings yet, but sleeping has been increasingly difficult. If it's not my hips or back then it's having to pee every two hours, but mostly a backache.
Have you settled on a name yet, or are you still working on it?We have had names for both boy and girl picked out before we were preggo, we both agree that we like the girls name better so we might be reconsidering our boy choice, we'll see.
Any projects you're working on for baby? I am researching everything, travel systems, cribs and a kazillion nursery ideas of which I still cannot decide, I think I want to do the oh so popular sports theme, but want it to be different then what i can find in stores so still searching
Anything else?
Doctor says no exercising due to marginal placenta previa so a little worried that it gets worse instead of better and I already feel like I have to watch everything I do and DH just walked in the door with a whole box of apple fritters! Hello preggo weight gain, hoping for good news with our next ultrasound.

Have you had your big ultrasound yet? If not, when is it scheduled for? No, and its still not scheduled. I am trying to schedule a dating ultrasound, have called twice, and both times they have told me they are unable to make my appointment yet! I am getting really frustrated!
How are you feeling? Mostly just tired, although that has gotten better since I gave up carbs. At least I am not falling asleep every afternoon anymore!
Have you settled on a name yet, or are you still working on it? Haven't even thought about it yet!
Any projects you're working on for baby? Need to get the bunk bed set up (dont have a mattress yet, and move DS into DD's room, so that the baby can use the crib in our room, but mostly right now I am just trying to organize the house and get all the mess cleaned up that accumulated when I was feeling so tired and crumby.
Anything else? My union is taking a walk-out vote this week, which means I could be off work for awhile and caught in the middle of an illegal strike. I am worried that since I am a sub they might try to ask me to cross lines (as a walk out would be illegal) Sad On the other hand, at least I just dont have to answer the phone, and I could spend the time home with my kids.

Have you had your big ultrasound yet? YES and it's a BOY!
How are you feeling? I've not had a great week- both my stomach and back have been aching. I've also had restless leg syndrome BAD at night. It's hard to find a comfortable position to sleep during the night. Sad
Have you settled on a name yet, or are you still working on it? Still working on it. We like Carter, Jackson and Luke.
Any projects you're working on for baby? Painting the nursery this weekend and have already ordered the bedding. Putting together furniture after the nursery is painted.
Anything else? Have a follow-up appointment for my cerclage tomorrow. Hoping she doesn't put me on bed rest!

Have you had your big ultrasound yet? If not, when is it scheduled for? We have it scheduled for this Thursday.
How are you feeling? Not too bad. Back is already starting to hurt and catch but that is about it.
Have you settled on a name yet, or are you still working on it? Haven't even looked or discussed. We didn't agree on a name with DS until I was in the hospital having him so I haven't even started. Since we both are finding out now it will make it easier since we will only have to pick one name.
Any projects you're working on for baby? We are working on getting the nursery/guest room painted and cleaned. Trying to get a crib. Have order one twice now and both times has come broken. That has been it right now. I'll do more once we find out what we are having.
