For PG mommies

EDD: Nov 5th

How long until you think you will deliver: 9 days...c-section on Oct 26th

How are you feeling: Pretty good. Pelivc pain in intense and I am pretty tired but otherwise really good. I am going to miss being PG.

Do you have swelling: Here and there...if I get enough rest nope.

How are you sleeping: Well it is 3am and I am on the computer Smile Thank god for daily naps.

Is you belly button and innie or an outie: Still an innie

Are you having a boy...girl...or surprise: Sweet baby girl...I love buying pink!

What is the craziest thing you will take to the hospital: I can't think of anything that is on my list that is crazy.

Does baby move alot still: Yep...she moves none stop...I love it!

Something good this week: Last of the tests as we are delivering next week

Something bad: Just that my BP is going up. I know it is not pre-e but it still worries me for what it will do after delivery. Doc thinks that is when we will struggle with it more. Last time it was so high the day I came home it was the first time I was really worried about me.

For PG mommies

EDD: Nov 16

How long until you think you will deliver: I'm hoping to go early, but will likely go late. So I'll say another 4 weeks at least.

How are you feeling: Sore.

Do you have swelling: Not really. My feet sometimes feel heavy and big by the end of the day, but they don't look swollen at all.

How are you sleeping: Terrible. I used to just wake up to pee and to roll over, but now my hips are giving me so much trouble! I can't believe the hip pain I am in! How am I supposed to lie to be comfortable?

Is you belly button and innie or an outie: Ha, been an outie for month and months!

Are you having a boy...girl...or surprise: BOY

What is the craziest thing you will take to the hospital: LOL, I can't think of anything crazy. I might venture to say "my husband" though, because if he participates in Movember again this year, he will have a creepy moustache when he accompanies me to L&D. Now that's crazy. He looks so creepy with a moustache! I've been begging him not to grow one this year!

Does baby move alot still: Oh. My. Gosh. My child is a ninja. He never stops moving, and it is PAINFUL!

Something good this week: Only 6 days until my weekend alone at home!

Something bad: My DS has dreadful diarrhea. It's revolting. I need him to get better ASAP!

For PG mommies

EDD: Dec 14

How long until you think you will deliver: About a month. Section will be scheduled for mid-November.

How are you feeling: Meh

Do you have swelling: I can't tell, I just lie around and don't wear shoes, so ... no?

How are you sleeping: Not too great.

Is you belly button and innie or an outie: It looks like it's desperately trying to remain an innie.

Are you having a boy...girl...or surprise: One of each.

What is the craziest thing you will take to the hospital: TWO carseats!

Does baby move alot still: Yeah, they're nuts.

Something good this week: Everything is looking up! The babies are healthy and such fatties.

Something bad: Weekends are my exciting time of human interaction during bedrest, so Mondays sort of suck.

How long until you think you will deliver: Fingers crossed after the 27th Oct

How are you feeling: Relatively good, BM have increased to 4/5 a day :eek: and having a bit of cramping.

Do you have swelling: I did have one fat foot, that has gone down and I have my ankles back

Is you belly button and innie or an outie: Innie

Are you having a boy...girl...or surprise: Girl

What is the craziest thing you will take to the hospital: Nothing crazy in my bags

Name: Julie

For PG mommies

EDD: 11.23/11

How long until you think you will deliver: Who knows! Probably at least another few weeks, but I'm guessing early.

How are you feeling: Not bad today, thankfully.

Do you have swelling: Nope

How are you sleeping: Like crap. I am constantly turning over, and its so hard because my belly is so big!

Is you belly button and innie or an outie: Outie

Are you having a boy...girl...or surprise: Suprise! Well, we know.. but its a suprise for everyone else!

What is the craziest thing you will take to the hospital: Not sure. Haven't even thought about my hospital bag- I should get on that!

Does baby move alot still: Insane! Yesterday during church, baby did not stop moving the entire time. I was so uncomfortable! Today has been somewhat quiet, but I've been busy cleaning, organizing, running errands and packing. Now I'm taking a much needed break.

Something good this week: Having some girlfriends over Thursday evening to hang out!

Something bad: I have a ton of packing to still do, and not much energy. Thankfully I have 4 weeks (just under actually) until we move, but its getting harder to do. I might have to call in some help.

Name: Rae

For PG mommies

EDD: Nov 1

How long until you think you will deliver: Thinking (okay hoping too) 2 weeks

How are you feeling: I alternate between feeling lazy and anxious

Do you have swelling: Hands and feet, I've been wearing my engagement ring on a chain since last week. My wedding band is a thin band and comfort curved so does not seem to bother me even though I can't get it off at times.

How are you sleeping: I'm sure better than most. Peeing once in the night again instead of twice as I was last 2 weeks. Alternate sides often after that due to hip pain, every 45m or hour. So far it's not disturbing DH too much, I still get 7-8 hours. I put puppy-training-pads under my sheet last night to protect if my water breaks, but think I'll add a towel on top because the plastic feels a bit hot. On bad nights I either dream about labour/delivery etc that I'm not ready for - or I lie awake thinking about all the stuff I need to do to get ready.

Is you belly button and innie or an outie: Used to be an innie, lol, now it's flat

Are you having a boy...girl...or surprise: BOY!!

What is the craziest thing you will take to the hospital: A properly packed bag, lol

Does baby move alot still: Yes he is a kicky squirmy lil guy

Something good this week: Today is the start of my first week off work!!!!! YAY!

Something bad: I`ve got no complaints, just hoping I can shake the laziness and get myself and this house ready!!!

Anne

EDD: 11/21/11 scheduled c section

How long until you think you will deliver: I don't know--I'd like to get this baby out of my belly asap, but know she needs to bake a bit longer.

How are you feeling: all right. tired.

Do you have swelling: not yet!

How are you sleeping: horribly one night, okay the next night. on bad nights I am up every 45 minutes to an hour to pee or roll over.

Is you belly button and innie or an outie: its becoming flat. It never popped with DS, so I don't think the "turkey timer" is going to pop this time either.

Are you having a boy...girl...or surprise: girl, we think.

What is the craziest thing you will take to the hospital: my satin pillowcase and perhaps my tempurpedic pillow--I am very tactile and have to have my "lovey" in order to fall asleep (just the pillowcase, not on any pillow).

Does baby move alot still: yes, a few times a day she feels like she's trying to break outta jail.

Something good this week: hopefully hubby's raise hits this paycheck, on friday.

Something bad: I have no motivation to do anything, and have a house full of sickies. I feel like I am getting it next.

How long until you think you will deliver: I have no idea!!

How are you feeling: MISERABLE. I am feeling so fat but can't stop eating b/c I am hungry ALL THE TIME. I am running out of clothes and refuse to buy more maternity stuff. Tired, I cannot sleep at all.

Do you have swelling: some on hands and feet.

How are you sleeping: Awful, I get up every 1-2 hrs to pee.

Is you belly button and innie or an outie: I have no belly button left!

Are you having a boy...girl...or surprise: BOY!

What is the craziest thing you will take to the hospital: Might take my sock monkey slippers!!!

Does baby move alot still: Yes and it is painful...he is very active

Something good this week: Off work tomorrow and this weekend. Ds is going to daycare tomorrow so I can sleep and catch up on a few things. We have an u/s for babys kidneys and regular appt tomorrow.

Something bad: DS has a cold, I hope I don;t get it!

For PG mommies

EDD: Nov 4th

How long until you think you will deliver: Thinking that I'll be close to the end, but maybe a bit early!

How are you feeling: Tired and uncomfortable

Do you have swelling: Nope! I have had very rare occasional swelling with this pregnancy, unlike my last where my feet and toes were always swollen.

How are you sleeping: Not so great. The first few hours are incredible, and then it's pretty much non-existant after that.

Is you belly button and innie or an outie: Was an innie, now an outie.. So outie that I actually have a huge dent underneath it. Sad

Are you having a boy...girl...or surprise: Girl

What is the craziest thing you will take to the hospital: My big vibrating massager

Does baby move alot still: Tons and tons, and it's very uncomfortable.

Something good this week: The husband will probably only be working a couple more days, and then he's home and at my command...

Something bad: Baby is facing the wrong way so I have tons of back pain (our spines are together) and it feels like there's so much movement because she has a hand and foot on each side of me.

For PG mommies

Name: Krystal

EDD: Dec 1

How long until you think you will deliver: 6 weeks (I've had all of my babies in the 39th week)

How are you feeling: Pretty uncomfortable. My back is killing me, and now if I walk around for more than a few minutes I get lots of pressure "down there" like he's falling out!

Do you have swelling: Yes, my ankles... or should I say cankles!

How are you sleeping: Sleeping OK, just hurts a ton to roll over from side to side.

Is you belly button and innie or an outie: Now it's an outie!

Are you having a boy...girl...or surprise: Another little boy!

What is the craziest thing you will take to the hospital: DH...

Does baby move alot still: Yes, but it's more rolling around than it is kicks now. He also gets the hiccups at least twice a day!

Something good this week: Tomorrow my baby shower plans are being finalized!!

Something bad: DH is acting like a real jerk right now... I kinda wish I could go home tonight and he wouldn't be there to be a d*ckhead lol...

Something bad: I'm working on being POSITIVE.....but well baby's room isn't done and I haven't settled on a NAME....but all in all those aren't major things in the grand scheme!

EDD:

How long until you think you will deliver:We will set the induction date at my next appt (9 days away) due to my blood pressure creeping back up and the fact that childcare for 5 is hard enough to find and trying to do it on the drop of a dime is even harder lol.

How are you feeling:[COLOR=navy]Like crap.Tons of contractions all the time,headaches and my BP is up which is causing some blurry vision and dizziness.

Do you have swelling:[COLOR=navy]Feet and hands

How are you sleeping:Whats sleep? Between the headache,heartburn,contrations and going to the bathroom I might sleep 2 hours at night.

Is you belly button and innie or an outie:Innie,mine never pops thank goodness

Are you having a boy...girl...or surprise:Boy

What is the craziest thing you will take to the hospital:Nothing crazy really

Does baby move alot still:CONSTANTLY! I dont remember my other kiddos moving this much this far in.He still kicks like crazy sometimes for 30 minutes straight he will be moving. It hurts alot of the time but I am taking in every kick and treasuring it.I hate being pregnant but knowing I will never feel that kick or hiccup ( which he gets every night between 8-9 lol) has me a little sad.

Something good this week:Well it was techincally last week but the weekend was GREAT!!!! We took all 5 kids plus my nephews and met with my cousin at the local pumpkin patch.Then we went riding 4 wheelers and the kids had a blast.I was bummed I had to skip the 4 wheelers but it was a great day.Then Sunday went and got the kids new clothes and did some grocery shopping and went to dinner.

Something bad:I am so behind on household stuff. Laundry is never ending and I just cant seem to stay on top of it.I did 9 loads yesterday and have 6 to do today. I feel like I am drowning in housework and noone around this house thinks it is a mess so they wont/cant clean it like I want it. So annoying.My DBF is the typical man and if he can walk through it then that means it is clean regardless of the mess that is there lol. I just want a clean house when this baby comes, I dont want to be in labor trying to hurry and clean so I know it is done lol.
