    How's everyone feeling? Been kinda dead here lately so I thought I'd do a check in to see how everyone is doing!

    1. How far along are you / how much longer -

    2. What do you still have left to do?

    3. Anything really stressing you out in the baby department?

    4. How's DH / your SO doing with the final countdown?

    5. Are you other kids getting excited?

    6. Tell me one thing you did over the weekend that was different than any other weekend.

    1. How far along are you / how much longer - I like to look at it as glass-half-empty in this case I have 4 weeks and 4 days left!!

    2. What do you still have left to do? Nothing! We have like 2-3 onsies to wash but nothing else.. we're ready!

    3. Anything really stressing you out in the baby department? Just day care.. We haven't settled on a place yet and I feel like I'm waiting till the last minute!

    4. How's DH / your SO doing with the final countdown? I don't think he cares lol.. He's a very black and white person so baby is either here or NOT here. In his eyes, there's no countdown. lol..

    5. Are you other kids getting excited? I think she is! She really has no scope of what's going on.. well, more than a 9 year old who's never had a sibling really can.. But I think she's excited!

    6. Tell me one thing you did over the weekend that was different than any other weekend. We went to Easter Mass!! And wouldn't ya know the fire alarm went off in the middle of communion! The look of " " on almost 2,000 people's faces was a little unnerving! Yikes! Good thing all was a-ok..

    1. How far along are you / how much longer - 31+5...I have 2 days til I can have the baby at my hospital (goal #1), 2weeks 2 days til 34 weeks (my drs goal), 4 weeks 2 days til 36 weeks and they won't stop labor, anything more is bonus in my case

    2. What do you still have left to do? We have everything done that needs to be done. I need to order newborn diapers but I may wait til she gets here. If she has Nicu time I will have plenty of time to do things, but we have the essentials at this point.

    3. Anything really stressing you out in the baby department? Just the whole preemie thing. I really wanted a "normal" experience this time and I keep finding myself dwelling on the awful things from last time.

    4. How's DH / your SO doing with the final countdown? Well Dh would really like to ummm Be able to uh you know...I think that is all he is concerned about/missing at this point. He would really like his wife back. But he has been amazing for the most part so I can't complain.

    5. Are you other kids getting excited? Jack will still talk about Emmy and he knows what stuff is hers. He is very territorial about things at the moment. Is that normal for a 3-year-old?

    6. Tell me one thing you did over the weekend that was different than any other weekend. Ummm...I let Jack's grandparents give him a bath. I have control issues. Bed rest is forcing me to let go and it is hard!

    I'm ok, getting more and more uncomfortable as the days go by.. LOL

    1. How far along are you / how much longer - 33w6d and I'll have him at 39 weeks, so 5w1d left!

    2. What do you still have left to do? Yikes.. I have to wash all his clothes LOL But that's mainly it. I've been waiting until I get all of his baby shower stuff. I am having my second and last one this Saturday.. so then I'll be in washing mode for sure.

    3. Anything really stressing you out in the baby department? I can't think of anything right now.. just hoping for a good delivery

    4. How's DH / your SO doing with the final countdown? I think he's as ready as I am.. it's approaching fast! Can't wait to meet Lucas!

    5. Are you other kids getting excited? Oh yes.. he has been super excited but I don't think reality has kicked in yet. We will see what happens when he is finally born. I think Noah will be a great big brother

    6. Tell me one thing you did over the weekend that was different than any other weekend. We spent the weekend in Helen, GA.. it was awesome.. the kids had their Easter egg hunt on a mountain!

    1. How far along are you / how much longer - 34 weeks, 4 days.

    2. What do you still have left to do? Get a few supplies we didn't get at our shower, wash some sheets, wash my new ring sling. Lactation consult next Tuesday. Get work squared away for my absence...they are going to be so screwed with out me. Teach my friend to use Harper's car seat and pick her up from day care in case I go into labor before my mom gets here on April 20th...really should have done this by now. Pack a hospital bag. ...ok, going to stop thinking about this question so I don't start stressin'!

    3. Anything really stressing you out in the baby department? Gestational diabetes. Breast feeding.

    4. How's DH / your SO doing with the final countdown? He's good, I think. We are enjoying sleeping through the night...soaking ourselves in it.

    5. Are you other kids getting excited? Poor thing really has no idea what is about to happen...

    6. Tell me one thing you did over the weekend that was different than any other weekend. had our "shower." it was a cook out with yard games and a few gifts that we took home to open. Mostly, just an excuse to hang out with our friends. It was really fun! Also, the Easter Bunny came!

    1. How far along are you / how much longer - 34w+3d... About 5.5 weeks to go, but not convinced I'll get that far.

    2. What do you still have left to do? Um... Pretty much everything. I haven't done a thing to prepare for this baby. That said, half the stuff is still sitting out from us having two other babies in the past 3.5 years or so.

    3. Anything really stressing you out in the baby department? I'm stressed about everything, but most of it isn't really baby-related. I'm stressed about my huge weight gain. I'm stressed about the fact that we'd really like to move. I'm stressed about putting my oldest DS into preschool this Fall for the first time ever, and where to do it since we want to move, but have no immediate plans to do so. Shoot... Newborns are easy.

    4. How's DH / your SO doing with the final countdown? I think he's doing okay. I don't know. He's irritating me lately. He's all woe is me because my libido is non-existent. I basically don't want to be touched. Period. He's taking it personally, and I'm like dude... I'm 8 months pregnant, I stand on my feet all day at work with no breaks (sometimes 14 hours), I drive a hour both ways each day, you (DH) sleep at LEAST two hours later than me EVERY morning, I'm exhausted and in pain. Back the F off, ya know? Thank you for starting me on a DH rant, hahaha.

    5. Are you other kids getting excited? My oldest seems excited. He's still not quite 4, so I don't think he fully understands what it will mean to have a baby in the house. But he kisses my belly and talks to the baby, asks when baby will come out, etc.

    6. Tell me one thing you did over the weekend that was different than any other weekend. Saturday, we went to the zoo with the IL's. It was a relatively nice day compared to others we've had lately. Sunday, we went to visit my family for Easter. Got to see lots of my aunts/uncles/cousins/etc.

    YESSSSSS! Stressed out about weight! I figure, oh hey.. I'm pregnant, for once I don't have to watch what I eat. HAHAHAHAHA.. yeah, right! Then I gain 3 lb in 2 weeks and my doctor is shaking his finger. Sigh.

    Oh and DH.. yeah, I just really don't think they understand how tiresome and uncomfortable it can be. Everything in general.. when I get in bed I just want to get comfortable and sleep and that's still impossible. I mean, I miss my DH but geez.. lol

    Adriana - cut it off, stuff it and use it yourself! ... erm.. don't do that really! Just kidding! (sorta)

    1. How far along are you / how much longer - 2 days 'til my due date

    2. What do you still have left to do? ....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. What DONT I have left to do?

    3. Anything really stressing you out in the baby department? No, but I tend to not think about it ... yeah, that's my awesome way of coping with things.

    4. How's DH / your SO doing with the final countdown? He's fine. We don't talk about the baby much at all. I keep trying to get him to say something like he's scared or worried or nervous, but he just acts like he's peachy keen. And, I haven't held out at all in the sex dept. Sometimes it's not the most comfortable thing...but most times it doesn't bother me.

    5. Are you other kids getting excited? I don't have other kids, but I'm 100% sure that my dogs will be super jealous because they LOVE their daddy and if he's got a little baby in his lap, then they can't be in his lap

    6. Tell me one thing you did over the weekend that was different than any other weekend. We sat outside because the weather was beautiful and DH cooked BOTH nights of the weekend. ...say whaaaa?? lol
