For PG Moms

Name: Melanie

EDD: Nov 5th

How far along are you? 38w 2d...wow!

How are you feeling physically? Up and down but not to bad. If I rest I feel much better. The pelvic pain is actually alot better, no swelling unless I am on my feet alot. It is getting harder and harder to do things with this belly and it is so hard to sleep. BP is still high but thankfully not high enough to head into l&d - which is what I have to do if I hit the magic number

How are you feeling emotionally? Up and down as well Smile I am so torn. I am so happy to have made it this far and can't wait to meet my little girl but am sad that I will never be PG again, I LOVE being PG. I feel so not ready and like I know nothing about babies...then I remember if I did it before is those kind of circumstances I can do it again. These crazy hormones

Do you think you will go early, right on due date or late? I know I will be 1w and 3d early...c-section on Wed...yep Wed...two days away!!!!

Any worries about delivery? I am nervous about the c-section and the healing. I am worried what my BP will do - it went crazy after delivery last time. I am hoping the Gestational Diabetes leaves as soon as I deliver with no complications. I would have love to have seen what my body could do if we vaginally delivered - I know it is not safe so we made the right decision

Any new purchases for baby? Nope - I am going to go and get a Fisher Price Rock and Play Sleeper tomorrow and last week I bought some new headbands and hair clips

When is your next appt? What is it for? No more appts... pre-op on Tues and section on Wed

Something good this week? I am having my baby!!!!!!! I made it to my planned c-section!!

Something bad? My Uncle died on Thurs and his funeral is the day of the c-section and is 2 1/2 hours away. I am sad not to be with my family and am sad my mom can not be here when we have the baby. But thankfully she will be here about 9 hours after and then will be staying with me. And I am freaking out about being away from my son for 3-4 days while I am in the hospital. I really hope it is only 3 days. DH will bring him daily to visit but it will be hard.

Name: Sandra

EDD: Nov 16

How far along are you? Nearly 37 weeks Biggrin Full term!

How are you feeling physically? Uncomfortable. Baby is hanging so low I think he's going to fall out.

How are you feeling emotionally? Not bad. I will feel better once my house is really cleaned up, but it's a work in progress. I am really anxious to hold my new little boy in my arms!

Do you think you will go early, right on due date or late? Probably late, but hoping for just a few days early.

Any worries about delivery? Not really. I'm a bit scared about doing this all over again but I know I'll make it through- I've done it twice before! I hope my labour is a bit shorter this time. And I hope baby is no bigger than DS!

Any new purchases for baby? My MIL should be bringing my brand new Petunia diaper bags home this week! Eeeek! (But let's face it, those are for me, not baby Wink )

When is your next appt? What is it for? Nov 1st, 38 week appt. My OB said I was doing so well she didn't even need to see me this week.

Something good this week? Off to the spa in an hour! Can't wait!

Something bad? I've enjoyed my time alone this weekend. I'm a bit sad to go back to the grind tomorrow once the kids gets home, but I do miss them!

Name: Sheila

EDD: Dec 14

How far along are you? 32 weeks

How are you feeling physically? Exhausted from zero sleep with a hugely heavy uterus full of too many babies.

How are you feeling emotionally? Unreasonably devastated over my first little stretch marks.

Do you think you will go early, right on due date or late? Early. They're measuring BIG, which is apparently a rarity with twins and so my OB wants to c-section them pretty early.

Any worries about delivery? Of course. The epidural scares the crap out of me because of a spinal surgery. And then the fact that there will be BABIES coming out of there is insane. Oh and recovery while trying to breast feed two babies. None of that seems in any way real or possible.

Any new purchases for baby? We're picking up a used co-sleeper next weekend.

When is your next appt? What is it for? Thursday for more ultrasounds, cervical check, and a c-section date.

Something good this week? Still pregnant.

Something bad? Still pregnant.

How are you feeling physically? Rather large....

How are you feeling emotionally? Good...

Do you think you will go early, right on due date or late? I am thinking early, but who knows!

Any worries about delivery? Nope, just get it over and done with so I can hold my baby!

Any new purchases for baby? Nope.

When is your next appt? What is it for? Wed-midwife, Thursday-OB

Something good this week? Renovations have begun on our new house!

Something bad? I woke up with hives on Friday morning, and they haven't gone away! They are EVERYWHERE! Soooooo itchy! I have been taking Benadryl and putting oatmeal cream on, and it doesn't help much. I am so uncomfortable! Oh, and we move in 2 weeks, and I'm on moderate bed rest and cannot pack or clean... so I am feeling pretty useless these days. I hate asking other people for help Sad

EDD: 11/1/11 same as Jasmine

How far along are you? 38 +6d

How are you feeling physically? Good, very mild sciatica, baby hasn't dropped far

How are you feeling emotionally? Good! Off work 4 a week now has done wonders

Do you think you will go early, right on due date or late? On time, or maybe couple days late, I think I can will him out before induction heh heh

Any worries about delivery? The usual.. will I be strong enough, I wonder if I can deal without epi, what if I faint, what if epi goes goofy like with DD, what if my bags aren't packed, what if DD feels left out, what if DH is 2 hours away when I go into labour, lol I guess there is a few...

Any new purchases for baby? Big Sister shirt coming for DD... haven't got baby stuff this week but a couple outfits from eBay last week it's a steady habit Wink

When is your next appt? What is it for? Thursday (same as Jasmine again) 39 wk checkup!

Something good this week? Had a fantastic weekend, weather is beautiful, got some DD with belly shots yesterday, went to a great rock concert last night, starting to feel a little more 'domestic' with cooking and cleaning etc

Something bad? I'm still being mostly lazy and unmotivated which means I am moving so slowly to get anything productive done, I blame it on enjoying being off work a little too much :D. Oh and the home PC is broken again, DH has ordered another $100 part so I can't upload photos like normal until after he gets it fixed & he's all grumpy he already spent money on parts we apparently didn't need However I try to remind him it could have been a lot worse we could have lost data!

EDD: 11/24

How far along are you? 35 weeks heading to 36 Smile

How are you feeling physically? OK. I'm trying hard to stay really active - walked a couple miles twice last week and helped DH paint the nursery. But I do get sore fast!

How are you feeling emotionally? Fine, I did find myself feeling a little emotional when going through the baby clothing....emotional that we'll have another and that our first baby is so big now....sigh....

Do you think you will go early, right on due date or late? I've really been hoping early all along but trying to prepare myself to be late

Any worries about delivery? Not really my only silly fear is my water breaking at work. OMG I'd want to die!

Any new purchases for baby? Not really we did paint the room though!

When is your next appt? What is it for? Friday -- and every Friday until I deliver now! Just routitne

Something good this week? Room is painted! After work I'll organize it!

Name: Krystal

EDD: Dec 1

How far along are you? 34 weeks, 4 days

How are you feeling physically? It's starting to get uncomfortable no matter what I'm doing. Sitting at work hurts, walking for more than 10 minutes hurts, rolling from one side to another in bed hurts... my back hurts... I hurt lol!

How are you feeling emotionally? I'm doing pretty good here, not nearly as weepy as I was in my 6th and 7th month.

Do you think you will go early, right on due date or late? I think he'll come in the 39th week just like all of my other babies.

Any worries about delivery? No, mine seem to get easier and shorter with each one. I'm wanting to try to go natural, but since DH isn't much support in that department, I don't know how the delivery will go, so I have like six birth plans lol!

Any new purchases for baby? Finally got his bassinet off of craigslist. It's a hardwood Eddie Bauer, so beautiful, and retails for $165 but I got it for $45!

When is your next appt? What is it for? Tomorrow morning, just a routine check-up... but my last one before she'll start the cervical checks to see if I'm dialated!

Something good this week? DH has the whole week off, so I'm hoping that we can tackle our filthy house and finally get it in order before this LO arrives!

Something bad? Don't want to jinx myself lol!
