First Name: Jasmine

EDD: 1st November.

How far along are you: 35 + 6

How are you feeling: I know he needs at least another 1.5 weeks, but I would much rather be a Mama than an expectant Mama. I've got loads of pelvic pain since he has dropped so low. Plus, I'm having trouble sleeping because my hips ache like I've got a bowling ball wedged between them!

What is one pregnancy sympton that you would get rid of if you could: My difficulty moving around!

What is one part of pregnancy you will be sad when it is over: Feeling him move.

Are things ready for the baby: Laundry will be finished by tomorrow!

Do you have your hospital bag ready: I can't believe the answer is still no. I'll have it done later today!

How is DH-SO doing with LO on its way: He is getting ridiculously excited.

Did you buy anything new for baby last week: Not really? Just some breastfeeding tea, a yoga ball and some recharge (all-natural gatorade) for the birth bag.

When is your next appt and what is it for: Probably next tuesday - 36 week visit!

Have you been happy with your care during PG: YES! Biggrin

How often do you take belly pictures: Not often enough, haha. I guess it has been a month!

Do you talk to baby: Of course!

Something good: I'm beginning to think he actually may come between 37-40 weeks Biggrin

Something bad: I can't imagine going another 5 weeks without going crazy :eek:

How are you feeling: Ok-ish but the girl's positioning is KILLING me

What is one pregnancy symptom that you would get rid of if you could: This elbow or whatever it is that's just about piercing my innards!

What is one part of pregnancy you will be sad when it is over: I'm bored being off work now but it'll be really hard going back once the babies are here, I'm sure.

Are things ready for the baby: Ha! No.

Do you have your hospital bag ready: No and I JUST looked up a checklist online. I have nothing! Nursing bras? Granny panties? It's online shopping time.

How is DH-SO doing with LO on its way: He's excited but also very insistent that I do absolutely nothing and keep them in for a lot longer.

Did you buy anything new for baby last week: No. Are there things I should be buying? I'm so unprepared.

When is your next appt and what is it for: This Friday for my weekly cervical check and ultrasound.

Have you been happy with your care during PG: Yes. It's both annoying and reassuring to be going in so often.

How often do you take belly pictures: Every couple of weeks.

Do you talk to baby: Woah, no way. It still freaks me out that there are small people in there.

Something good: My cervix is back to looking crazy long and strong.

Something bad: To keep my cervix that way, I'm still stuck on the couch.

First Name: Sandra

EDD: Nov 16

How far along are you: 33 weeks this week Smile

How are you feeling: Uncomfortable!

What is one pregnancy sympton that you would get rid of if you could: Rib pain! It's probably my worst pain. Or pubic bone pain...that's bad too!

What is one part of pregnancy you will be sad when it is over: Feeling and seeing baby move inside my belly! *

Are things ready for the baby: NOPE!

Do you have your hospital bag ready: Nope. I'll probably get it ready around 38 weeks.

How is DH-SO doing with LO on its way: Good - he's super busy at work trying to get things done before baby comes, so he's not much help, but I know he'll be a fabulous Daddy, cause he already is!

Did you buy anything new for baby last week: No. I have only bought 1 new thing for this baby -a blanket I had custom made. The rest (furniture, clothes, etc) we already have or are getting handed down from family.

When is your next appt and what is it for: Next Monday the 3rd I see my GP. He and my OB "share care" this month because my OB is so busy. I'll go back to my OB on the 18th and see her until the end.

Have you been happy with your care during PG: Yep! I like both my GP and my OB, and my GP is also my kids doctor, so I know I will be happy with pediatric care afterwards too. Sometimes the wait time sucks, but that's what happens when there are so few OB's in my city!

How often do you take belly pictures: I try to once a week! Sometimes I go 2-3 weeks without a picture, but it's usually once a week. Here is one from last week at 32 weeks!


Do you talk to baby: Not really, actually. I'm sure he loves to listen in to bedtime stories and lullabies for my other kids each night though! And I spend 2 hours every Monday night at choir, I'm sure that's fun for him too!

Something good: My SIL said she finally has all the baby boy clothes ready for me to have! She still has to drop them off though.

Something bad: Everyone in my house is getting/got a cold this week. Runny noses!!!!!!

EDD: 11/23/11

How far along are you: 32wks2d

How are you feeling: Exhausted!

What is one pregnancy symptom that you would get rid of if you could: Peeing all the time.

What is one part of pregnancy you will be sad when it is over: Feeling baby move!

Are things ready for the baby: Ummm... no.

Do you have your hospital bag ready: Ummm... no.

How is DH-SO doing with LO on its way: To be honest, I feel like he could care less about this baby. Wait, that came out wrong. At night when I'm lying in bed and babe is very active, I ask him to look at my belly to watch, or put his hand on it, and he never does, stating "It's our third!"... silly guy.

Did you buy anything new for baby last week: Nope. Oh wait, this week I bought a soother and new clip holder. Oh yes, last week I bought 5 Carters sleepers and 4 Carters 2pc. outfits second hand for $15. Good deal!

When is your next appt and what is it for: Next Wednesday. Standard 33wk appt. at the midwives.

Have you been happy with your care during PG: Yep, I love my midwife.

How often do you take belly pictures: I think I've taken 3 this pregnancy. Not good. I should take one soon though!

Do you talk to baby: Yup. I remind the baby on a daily basis I do not like his/her knee or elbow sticking out of my belly button! Ouch!

Something good: We sold our house!!

Something bad: Our closing date is Nov. 15th. I'm due Nov. 23rd. I have yet to start packing, and as of right now we don't have anywhere to move to. Can we say stressed??
