Boy, girl, surprise: Baby GIRL!!

Names picked out: Yep pretty sure we have it...but you will have to wait it is a surprise

How are you feeling: Pretty good except for the pelvic pain and lack of sleep

Any stresses about the PG: I am just stressing a bit about BP...thought I would have stressed before this but nope not until now

Are you ready for LO to arrive: For the most part I have everything she will need, clothes are all washed. Need to set up bassinet. Her room is mostly set up just have not done the crib as we put a bed in there for mom who will be staying with us to help me heal from c-section

If you have other children...are they excited for LO: I think DS is...he does not talk...but when you talk about him being a big brother he always smiles and he always smiles when his hand is on my tummy and she kicks

What is the one thing you will miss most about being PG: feeling her move and the tummy

What is the one thing you are excited to be over when you are not PG: I can't wait to be done with all my appts.

When is your next appt and what is it for: NST on Wed

Something bad you need to vent about: happy to report that my previous stress about DS and school is getting better and all is well with me so nothing to vent about. Although some comments lately have made me shake my head...people...keep it to yourself!

Something good you want to share: I am pretty much set up for baby for clothes for 6-9 months at least...and all is washed and put away.

Just for fun....do you usually try to match your bra and underwear: I try to on days I go out...don't usually care if I am home. Which is weird...when I am out no one sees but when I am home DH sees. But now with PG it is what every underwear and bra fit Smile

ETA: Holy cow, sorry I wrote a novel!

First Name: Sandra

EDD: Nov 16

Boy, girl, surprise: Boy

Names picked out: Not for sure, but we are thinking Oliver Benjamin. We never decide for sure until baby is born.

How are you feeling: Not too bad. I have a bad pregnant waddle because of pubic bone pain, back pain, and rib pain :confused: but I'm making it through! Only 2 more months, only 2 more months....

Any stresses about the PG: I am going to be dreadfully big this time, just like last. I'm worried that babe will be over 10 lbs, but I've already successfully vaginally birthed a 9 lb 7 oz baby, so I'm sure I can handle the extra half pound! My poor stomach skin is going to be super taut though! I carry way out in front, and my skin gets pulled extra tight!

Are you ready for LO to arrive: Not yet. Just starting to make my list and start checking things off! Lots to do still.

If you have other children...are they excited for LO: DD (4) is SO excited. She kisses my belly every day and always asks questions about the new baby. She will be a great big sister! Last time she was only 18 months when DS was born, so it was a lot different. This time she will be so excited and helpful! DS (2.5) on the other hand, has no idea what's going on. He's in for a shock!

What is the one thing you will miss most about being PG: I do love the belly, even though it gets huge and uncomfortable by the end. I still love it though, and will miss it!

What is the one thing you are excited to be over when you are not PG: I want to sleep on my belly sooooooo bad! Can't wait! I'm ready for the rib and pelvic pain to disappear too!

When is your next appt and what is it for: On Wednesday I see my OB to discuss my U/S last week and have a regular 2 weeks check up.

Something bad you need to vent about: DS was SO bad today at the library. I eventually dragged him out of there by the arm screaming without getting any of the books or movies we picked out to borrow. He was whiny, selfish and bratty all morning! He was SO LOUD. I was terribly embarrassed.

Something good you want to share: I'm always excited on Mondays because I have choir and it's my favourite night of the week! I'm also excited for a girls night coming up this Friday. My IL's are out of town so I'm hosting the girls night over in their empty condo. We're having potluck snacks and watching a musical.

Just for fun....do you usually try to match your bra and underwear: Not really. To tell you the truth I'm pretty boring and most of my bras and underwear are white, so everything matches! I do have some colored underwear but I never make an effort to match. That being said, I do have nice underwear that I save for nights with DH. I don't really wear my sexy stuff during the day. TMI (especially now when I have so much discharge! Don't want to wreck the nice stuff)

First Name: Nicole

EDD: 06/11/11

Boy, girl, surprise: Girl

Names picked out: Aubrey

How are you feeling: Tired, It's hard keeping up with everything

Any stresses about the PG: Nope, everything is smooth, no worries.

Are you ready for LO to arrive: Basically, all we have to get are the basics and pick up the bassinet from mil.

If you have other children...are they excited for LO: I'm not really sure DS gets the whole idea yet, he does point and pat my belly excitedly saying baby - usually it's yelling baby.

What is the one thing you will miss most about being PG: All the belly kicks, oh and being able to put on weight without people scowling at you!

What is the one thing you are excited to be over when you are not PG: Being able to move a lot more freely, wearing my normal clothes again (will be summer too, so no dealing with a huge belly and heat)

When is your next appt and what is it for: Next week Wednesday, MW appt 34 weeks .

Something bad you need to vent about: My uni grades are shocking! We have been given 7 assignments for one paper, but only 2 will be marked randomly - I did a half *** job (scuse my language) last week and of course Murphy strikes and that assignment is going towards my course mark - UGH every other assignment has been really good, why couldn't the lecturer pick one of those ones!! VENT OVER

Something good you want to share: We are going to see our parents this weekend and DS and I are spending a night at my parents lake house - We haven't been before so it will be fun! I will try to take some pictures and share them next week

Just for fun....do you usually try to match your bra and underwear: I honestly don't have a lot and at the moment it's all boring maternity stuff. If I'm feeling sexy I'll try to match but that doesn't always happen either.

First Name: Krystal

EDD: Dec 1

Boy, girl, surprise: It's a boy!

Names picked out: Trystan Magnus

How are you feeling: Besides the constant backache, just fine!

Any stresses about the PG: Nope, just how I'm going to afford another child, and how I'll have to go back to work 2 weeks after he comes...

Are you ready for LO to arrive: Pretty much, with the exception of the above comment...

If you have other children...are they excited for LO: Very much so!

What is the one thing you will miss most about being PG: Everything, this will be my last baby...

What is the one thing you are excited to be over when you are not PG: The constant back pain... and waddling!

When is your next appt and what is it for: 9/27, just a regular check-up.

Something bad you need to vent about: I'm so done with this job. I'm commision only, so two days this week I haven't booked any tours and have worked for free. I'm so over it, because I'm a concierge, so I'm still working all day even if I'm not booking any tours. I'm so sick of working my butt off and being away from my kids and not having any money to show for it. And it will be all the worse when Trystan comes because I'll have to leave him for this crappy job when he's only 2 weeks old... which will pretty much make my milk all but dissapear...

Something good you want to share: I guess that fact that I have a job in this sh*t economy is good news...

Just for fun....do you usually try to match your bra and underwear: Lol no, especially not pregnant! I couldn't care less, and I don't think DH cares either!
