EDD: Nov 5th

How long until EDD? 9 weeks but we will be doing c-section in 7 weeks for medical reasons

How are you feeling? Pretty good. Wish I had more energy though. The pelvic pain is alot to take at times but that is about it....oh and I wake up alot at night

Boy, girl or surprise? Baby GIRL!!

How is it going with names for LO? DH picked out her first 2 names when we were 18 weeks PG but we need a second middle name and we are stuck on it. Baby name is a surprise.

How was your weekend? We still have one more day...it is a long weekend here. It has been OK. Trying to get alot done at the house...wish I had more energy to do it. Hopefully tomorrow we will get to finish everything we started. Got some good visiting in with friends and family so that was nice.

Something good? I am so happy to be at 31 weeks and still doing good...I am loving getting things ready for LO.

Something bad? It has been a hard transition for DS in grade 1. I tell you...having a child with special needs is truly a blessing but at times like this it is pretty hard and stressful. I am really hoping with me working so closely with the school it will get better quickly.

What color of hair do you think LO will have? I am thinking darker brown...and hoping she will have some hair. I was bald until I was 2

Do you have everything ready for LO? Nope...just now figuring what I need. Hopefully tomorrow I will get her room cleaned out and ready for her so I can start putting everything I have in one place and then I can see what I still need to get

When you have LO...do you want people to visit you in hospital or wait until you get home? Well I will be in the hospital for 3 days so I don't mind if people visit me there.

EDD: 06/11/11

How long until EDD? 9 weeks

How are you feeling? Pretty good

Boy, girl or surprise? Confirmed that she is still a girl at our scan last Friday

How is it going with names for LO? Name has been picked since 20 weeks, Aubrey.

How was your weekend? Very busy, on Sunday it was father's day so we traveled across to see both families and spent a lot of time down at the beach. This weekend just been was the first official one of spring and the weather was so nice!

When is your next appt and what is it for? Mw appt next week some time.

Something good? I'm looking forward to my plunket meeting on Thursday night, an excuse to catch up with my lovely mummy friends and eat junkfood while SO looks after DS

Something bad? Test tomorrow for university Sad Boo

What color of hair do you think LO will have? DS was born with brown hair which has fallen out and has been replaced with blonde, either that will happen again or the hair will stay brown. Both SO and I had blonde hair as babies and eventually it darkened as we grew older.

Do you have everything ready for LO? Almost, just need to buy wipes/nappies/bathroom stuff, new diaper bag and double stroller.

When you have LO...do you want people to visit you in hospital or wait until you get home? Finger's crossed we will be only staying a night at the birth center so i think I'd rather wait for people to visit us at home.

EDD: Nov 16

How long until EDD? Just over 10 weeks!

How are you feeling? Not too bad. Lots of soreness still, and discomfort, but I'll make it through! Biggrin I'm getting excited to swap this belly for a newborn!

Boy, girl or surprise? BOY

How is it going with names for LO? Not bad. DH and I are discussing it every once in a while, slowly coming to agreement! My choice for first name is growing on him, and he suggested a middle name that I actually like!

How was your weekend? Good! DH was out of town, so I was a busy "single momma" for 4 days, but we had lots of fun and I enjoyed my evenings alone.

When is your next appt and what is it for? Sept 9th, routine prenatal. On 2 week appts now!

Something good? DH comes home today! And my choir starts back up today! I'm soooo excited! Also, DD starts preschool tomorrow!

Something bad? My house is a mess! Time to get caught up!

What color of hair do you think LO will have? Both kids were born with lots of brown hair. It's usually a medium brown at birth and fades to a light brown pretty quickly. DD's hair got tons of blonde streaks in it this summer! I wonder if I will EVER have a child who inherits my red hair??? DH is dark brown and I am red - both our kids are light brown, nearly blonde!

Do you have everything ready for LO? Nope! Not even close.

When you have LO...do you want people to visit you in hospital or wait until you get home? I don't mind visitors in the hospital. All the family will visit for sure (both DH's and my family) and I don't mind if some friends stop by too. I like company!

What color of hair do you think LO will have? I think it will be black at birth, very dark brown as a child and black as an adult.

Do you have everything ready for LO? My to-do list is dwindling, which is positive. Just need to move around some furniture and wash his clothes.

When you have LO...do you want people to visit you in hospital or wait until you get home? Assuming everything is okay, we'll be sent home 12 hours after birth so at home, please!

My parents are fine (all of DH's family lives in Idaho) but anyone else would just bother me as those few precious hours after I have the baby I'm very selfish about!

EDD: 11/25/11 (c-section will be at 39 weeks, so about a week prior than the 25th)

How long until EDD? 11 weeks?

How are you feeling? All right. I have a little more energy, which is sapped up by DS's being a toddler.

Boy, girl or surprise? Supposedly girl.

How is it going with names for LO? Picked out. Trinity Margaret Smythe S...

How was your weekend? Eh, okay. DH scared me friday night. He's fine. But still frightening (see my post about the ER visit). Other than that, it was a good weekend.

When is your next appt and what is it for? Tomorrow. Routine. Finding out if I passed or failed the 3 hour glucose tolerance test I took yesterday.

Something good? I dug through DS's newborn clothing and found a bunch of stuff that works for a girl (either GN or not too horribly boyish).

Something bad? Its raining today.

What color of hair do you think LO will have? Probably blonde, but I'd love a little redhead.

Do you have everything ready for LO? Nope. I should probably dig stuff out of the attic and storage soon.

When you have LO...do you want people to visit you in hospital or wait until you get home? Um, maybe in the hospital, after the first day. I'll be there for 3 days I think because of a csection. Too much pressure to have a clean house when people come to visit at home.
