Bed rest and doctor appointments

Itchy and backache, but thankful to be pregnant with a healthy baby.

Baby boy is good. We decided on a name (Carter Ryan) and he's measuring almost 2 weeks ahead! I have another round of steroid shots this week.

Pretty good, I don't have too much for DH left to do. Wink

Everyone ready?
Ready as we will ever be; I don't think DH has any idea what's coming.

Pack your hospital bags yet?
I have started a list of what I will need and have a stack of stuff going in the closet right now. Nothing is packed yet.

What is everyone up to these days? Not much. Getting ready for DD's 4th birthday (tomorrow) and her party on Sat.
How are you feeling? Fine. Working on my feet all day is getting tiring.
Hows the babies doing? Great, was head down last week and I still think so. Kicks/jabs often and I love feeling the hiccups.
Hows the baby preparation coming along? Okay, we are moving stuff up to the finished attic. We got DD settled in a big girl bed this past weekend so the crib will be ready to go for this LO. Still lots to do but we are getting there.
Everyone ready? Not really but I still have 10 weeks.
Pack your hospital bags yet? No. I still haven't finished all my paperwork to mail into the hospital and fill out for work for my leave. i am just focusing on DD's birthday.

I just finished The Hunger Games series and I'm looking for more books. I love reading. Trying to stay off my feet is really hard. I have 3 other kids that need me! What are you doing?

What is everyone up to these days?
I've been pretty busy...I have a 4 week training I am facilitating for work. 2 more weeks to go, I can't wait to be done, even though I also love it. I'm just feeling ready to be totally focused on getting ready for the baby.

How are you feeling?
By 9 p.m. I feel like an 80-year-old woman. I've just been going to be at 9 because I'm so uncomfortable! Doing pretty good, but I am ready to have my body back. I'm not one of those women who loves being pregnant, even though there are things I like about it.

Hows the babies doing?
As far as I know, baby is doing fine. He is moving around like crazy. I have a feeling he is on the big side, or at least bigger than DS (but DS was only 6 lbs at birth, so that isn't saying much).

Hows the baby preparation coming along?
It isn't. I just started yesterday with washing the newborn stuff we had in storage and clearing some space in DS' room for baby gear (which DS is not so thrilled about, lol). I still need to make a list of everything we need, and then of course I still have to get all the stuff. My prediction is this kid is coming on the early side, so I am feeling like I need to get my a** in gear.

Everyone ready?
Nope. I mean, part of me is totally ready, but I mostly just don't want to be pregnant anymore. As far as having stuff ready and being mentally prepared to have a newborn, I'm not quite there yet, but I will be by the time he arrives. I'm a little nervous about the birth. I know it will be FINE but I can't help it.

Pack your hospital bags yet? No! I probably won't get to that for a few weeks yet. I keep thinking that if I go into labor now, it will be an emergency because it's too early, so packing a hospital bag seems like preparing for the worst case scenario, and I don't want to think like that Smile BUT, I plan to have the car packed and ready to go at 38 weeks because when I go into labor, it is going to go fast and we won't have time to waste getting things loaded in the car.

Thanks for the updates, it is nice to hear how everyone is doing.

What is everyone up to these days?
Cleaning house, getting it decluttered for babys arrival.

How are you feeling?
Pretty good most days, although my sinuses have been on the fritz lately. Been having horrible ligament pain lately too. Feels like the underside of my belly has been cut open Sad That usually only happens when I move to quickly. Contractions have also started. Ive been getting a couple everyday.

Hows the babies doing?
Baby is fine. Doc said I'm measuring a week ahead. So he's growing good. Had an ultrasound last Thursday to measure growth and to check his kidneys. Won't find out the results til next Monday. Hoping they found the other kidney.

Hows the baby preparation coming along?
Good. I have everything we need, just need to set everything up and wash everything, that won't happen til next month though. Just concentrating on getting my house clean and in order for now.

Everyone ready? If the baby came today, I'm confident I have everything ready.

Pack your hospital bags yet?
Totally thinking about it, or at least get my lists ready.

Great idea!

What is everyone up to these days? Recovering from BIL's wedding extravaganza last week, various appointments and errands, trying to finish rough draft of dissertation before baby comes, teaching 2-3 students a weeks instead of 15.

How are you feeling? Right now I feel queasy because I did the 3 hour glucose test earlier today, but overall, I feel really good. Still a fair amount of energy, not feeling too big, not feeling too achy yet. Then again, I'm almost 4 weeks behind some of you. Smile Still, I feel WAY better than I did at this point last pregnancy.

Hows the babies doing? Doing great, measuring right on track!

Hows the baby preparation coming along? Almost done! Crib and changing table are set up, clothes are out of storage and washed and sorted by size, stroller/carseat are ready. Still need to do: Go through one more storage bin, get DH to get the rest of baby gear out of storage, decide on name.

Everyone ready? Not quite yet but feeling confident that we will be ready in the next few weeks, so I can take it easy in the last 2 months or so.

Pack your hospital bags yet? Nope, but I still have 8 weeks till full-term and 10 until my c/s, so I'm not too worried. Smile I have started putting things aside for the hospital and postpartum, but nothing has been packed yet.

Oh, I loved the Hunger Games! I just started A Discovery of Witches. The librarian at my school says it's her favorite book she's ever read and I like it so far. Other than that just working on his nursery and watching TV. I hope your kids are being good to you and letting you rest.

What is everyone up to these days? Working full time at a desk job which has made me very antsy lately. Have my glucose test tomorrow so we will see how that goes.
How are you feeling? Restless...my legs feel very restless every time I sit down even when I am tired, but I am getting used to this whole belly getting huge and don't feel nearly as huge as a few weeks ago although I do think I am starting to waddle a little.
Hows the babies doing? Good as far as I can tell. He is very active...I swear if he could only move to the left side every once in a while I would be so grateful. I hope he is still measuring on target because I don't feel like I have been getting much bigger these last couple of weeks (I know I will regret saying that in a few more weeks).
Hows the baby preparation coming along? Great. Just built the crib this weekend, which was the last piece of furniture for the nursery, have a huge stock of diapers of every size and brand and wipes
Everyone ready? I am not sure this is a possibility for new parents...can we really be ready, mentally or physically for what is to come our way in the next few months?
Pack your hospital bags yet? Haven 't even looked up what I am suppose to put in it yet.

What is everyone up to these days? Kids, work, and trying to sort and dung out the house.
How are you feeling? Old Smile Tired, sore. I told DH the other day that if he wants more kids he needs to get himself a younger wife, cause I am done!
Hows the babies doing? Great! Very active, big, but not overly large.
Hows the baby preparation coming along? Ummmmmm........its not really :/ Finally got the bunk bed set up for DS and DD, but the mattress is still airing, so they arent sleeping in it yet. Clothes are sorted by size and gender, but nothing is washed yet. The spare bedroom is stuffed with outdoor gear that needs to be sorted by gender, so I can toss half of it when baby comes....... I am pretty much entering panic state here.
Everyone ready? Not at all! I still dont even know where the kids will go when I am in labor, or if DH will be able to be there at all (he is a cop and has to attend a murder trial the week before I'm due). I am also in a battle with my Drs over whether I should be induced or not, (I say not) and it is making me wish I could just stay home and have this baby by myself...... Add that to my nesting panic, and I am not a very happy person to be around these days, just ask my kids!
Pack your hospital bags yet? Oh god no! If baby came now, I would get drugs to stop it and then be air vacced south. I wouldnt be able to take anything with me anyways and would have to leave my other babies behind. I am keeping my legs crossed until that possibility is over Smile
