First Name: Melanie

How Long Until your EDD: 7w 5d....but since I am delivering by 38 weeks that leaves me 5w 5d

How far along are you? 32w 2d

Boy, Girl or Surprise? GIRL!!!

How are you feeling?I feel pretty good for the most part. Very tired...loosing energy quickly and alot of pelvic pain...ouch it really hurts and makes me waddle

How often are your appts with OB/midwife? Every two weeks for OB, 1-2 weeks for Internal Medicine Specialist and weekly for peri

When is your next appt and what is it for? Wednesday I have an appt with Internal Medicine then a non-stress test with Peri

What did you do this past weekend? Just cleaned and got things ready for baby

How ready are you for your LO to arrive? I have alot just need to finish getting it all ready and I need to make a list to figure out what I still need

IS DH/SO being a good help in getting ready? Yes...I have no complaints

What are you planning...c-section or vaginal birth? c-section at 38 weeks if things continue to go well...I am just really hoping it is not before 37 weeks

Something good? I am 32 weeks and my baby is growing so well...I am in awe that I am 6 weeks past where I delivered my son and things are this well

Something bad? I am pretty stressed these days with DS and school. I have had him in full inclusion and I just don't know that it is the right decision anymore but it is so hard to take him out of an amazing school with great teachers and kids

Do you have a coming home outfit for baby? What does it look like? Yep, we got it at Carters. It is pink and white, striped pants with little feet and a ruffle bum, white onsie with pink trim and a little pink jacket with a baby elephant on it and it has a matching little hat.

How Long Until your EDD: 8 weeks

How far along are you? 32 weeks

Boy, Girl or Surprise? Girl

How are you feeling? I feel like a whale!

How often are your appts with OB/midwife? Every 2 weeks, from 36 weeks they will be weekly.

When is your next appt and what is it for? MW, this Wednesday

What did you do this past weekend? We had a relatively quiet weekend, my parents dropped in to see us on the Saturday afternoon. We went onto the Marae yesterday afternoon and watched the All Blacks welcomed and then they performed the Haka - Really awesome!

How ready are you for your LO to arrive? If she was born tomorrow, we would be ready to bring her home. There are a few things to get but for the majority we have everything.

IS DH/SO being a good help in getting ready? Yeah, he is being really good about getting things done around the house in preparation

What are you planning...c-section or vaginal birth? Vaginal, unless she is still breech and then it will be a C section.

Something good? My parents have offered to help pay for the stroller, came out of the blue but greatly appreciated. It means we can get something a little more expensive, as both my parents will pay and so will we.

Something bad? I have had to drop one of my university papers because I was getting too stressed with the workload Sad It really sucked but the lecturer was so sweet about it - his wife is an OB and works with pregnant ladies.

Do you have a coming home outfit for baby? What does it look like? It all depends on how big she is going to be and what the weather is like. The top outfit is 0-3months and the 2nd one is Newborn size. I thought I resized the photos,maybe photobucket is playing up.

or this one

How far along are you? 31 weeks 3 days

Boy, Girl or Surprise? Boy

How are you feeling? miserable most days, ready for November

How often are your appts with OB/midwife? every 4 weeks. I know I go once a week after 36 weeks.

When is your next appt and what is it for? 9/19, ultrasound for dilated renal pelvis and regular OB appt

What did you do this past weekend? Took Ds to "A day out with Thomas", pizza dinner with neighbors and my parents made a visit.

How ready are you for your LO to arrive? VERY READY Smile

IS DH/SO being a good help in getting ready? Yes. He is great. Just not understading that this pregnancy is harder, more stressful and painful that DS

What are you planning...c-section or vaginal birth? We'll see what this baby decides. Currently he is head down.

Something good? We just bought a new DSLR camera and LOVE It!!!!

Something bad? Presentation for work on Wednesday at a regional meeting.

First Name: Sandra

How Long Until your EDD: 9 weeks

How far along are you? 31 weeks on Wednesday

Boy, Girl or Surprise? Boy

How are you feeling? Sore, stretched and painful!

How often are your appts with OB/midwife? Every 2 weeks.

When is your next appt and what is it for? I have an U/S on Wednesday to check baby's growth. Then I see my OB the following Wednesday.

What did you do this past weekend? DH was out of town again. The kids and I went swimming on Saturday, had dinner with my family last night out in the country - my kids helped pick all sorts of fun veggies from my mom's garden! It was a HOT weekend but thankfully it's cooled down again. DH got home last night.

How ready are you for your LO to arrive? Not at all. I'm still waiting on all the clothes my SIL is giving me. We have to set up the crib in our room, get a dresser out of storage for all baby's things, get the carseat out of storage....pretty much everything. September is a really busy month for DH, so I'm sure in October we'll get going.

IS DH/SO being a good help in getting ready? He's not in any hurry and is quite busy, but I know he will help with whatever I ask him to.

What are you planning...c-section or vaginal birth? Vaginal birth. There is some worry that this babe will be quite big, but I've already given birth to a 9 lb 7 oz baby boy and he had no shoulder distocia coming out, so hopefully my doc will let me attempt this one vaginally as well.

Something good? I've got choir again tonight Biggrin It's my happy time!

Something bad? DH won't be sleeping at home this week. He's got a 3 day test this week that he's been working towards for pretty much 7 years, so he's sleeping at his parents empty house (they are away) so that he can get good sleep and stay focused for his exam. He is writing his exam to become a Chartered Accountant. Not that I mind the bed to myself, but I'll pretty much be a single parent this week.

Do you have a coming home outfit for baby? What does it look like? I haven't decided what to do. I'm not sure if I will buy something new or put him in the same thing DS came home in....or there may be something cute in all the hand me downs I'm supposed to get from SIL.

IS DH/SO being a good help in getting ready? he's starting to. He's realizing I am driving myself nuts, and knows that is never a good sign. One of these days he's coming home to a newly painted kitchen, if I don't get the crib and furniture soon. Or something else will be painted or rearranged.

Something good? We escaped flooding again for the second time in two weeks. Our basement got about 5 inches of water this past week (thank you Tropical storm Lee), and about 4 inches two weeks ago (Thank you Hurricane Irene), but since everything is on blocks nothing got ruined, and our sump pumps worked.

Something bad? I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I am sad, annoyed, and mad about it.

Do you have a coming home outfit for baby? What does it look like? Oh yeah! Its super cute. http://www.carters.com/carters/Sleep-Play-4-Piece-Set/VM_121A061,default,pd.html?cgid=carters-baby-baby-girl-sets-giftable-sets That's a link to it, because I am too lazy to deal with photobucket.
