How many days left? 9 days til due date!

Any appointments this week? I see my OB tomorrow for my 39 week appt.

Are you dilated or effaced at all? Having contractions? I'll have my first internal check tomorrow, so we'll see! I've been having occasional contractions, but nothing regular or too painful.

How is your to-do list? Anything you still urgently need? Feeling pretty good about my list! Just a few odds and ends to pack in the hospital bags, finish washing the carseat cover and install it in the car....and I'll be done! (Besides the never ending house cleaning!)

Are you feeling DONE? Would you rather have a newborn now than cart around your big belly??? Now that my choir concert is over (it was last night and went FABULOUS!) I am ready for him to arrive any time. I think I may get more sleep with a newborn than I do now! I am still sleeping terribly, just so uncomfortable.

Anything you want to share? Belly pic? We got snow over the weekend! Actually pretty good for this year, we normally get it in October. I just have to make it a few more weeks with a jacket that doesn't button! LOL!
I'll be taking a new belly pic tomorrow.

How many days left? two weeks till c-section

Any appointments this week? yup. 37.5 week appointment and Chiro on Wednesday

Are you dilated or effaced at all? Having contractions? Nope-they checked me last week, nothing. Felt like my cervix was in my throat by how far she had to reach!!! I have contractions, nothing too painful or regular though. Mostly at night.

How is your to-do list? Anything you still urgently need? Nope, not really. I installed the baby seat in my car today-its staying there till we head to the hospital. I also organized my pantry and cleaned my kitchen pretty well today. Smile

Are you feeling DONE? Would you rather have a newborn now than cart around your big belly??? I really don't know which I would prefer. While sometimes I feel DONE, I know life will be really crazy with two kiddos. I am cherishing the time I have with little Jack right now, he's been so affectionate lately.

Anything you want to share? Belly pic? No new belly pic. I've got to measure my belly though. Two weeks ago it was 48 inches around!

How many days left? 16

Any appointments this week? Just had two appt's this morning-OB and midwife. I no longer have to see the OB, and am back to full midwifery care-hurray!

Are you dilated or effaced at all? Having contractions? Not sure about dilated or effaced, but having contractions all the time.

How is your to-do list? Anything you still urgently need? Well, considering we are MOVING this weekend.... there is so much that needs to be done! Pack pack pack! Everything for baby is ready I think...

Are you feeling DONE? Would you rather have a newborn now than cart around your big belly???
Ugh, I am so feeling DONE! I am so very uncomfortable as my belly is so big (I'm ALL belly).. I can't sleep, or roll over (which I do about 30 times a night).... I am really looking forward to meeting baby!

Anything you want to share? Belly pic? Nope!

Baby's Name: Aubrey

How old is your LO? 6 Days

Are you getting much sleep? Trying to, we are co-sleeping much to my surprise as it works for us. Aubrey is a cuddler and she despises her bassinet.

Anything you want to share? We are totally in love with our new baby girl. DS is being so good and 'helping' out with everything that is baby 'aubrish'.

Share a picture of baby please!

For Preggo Mama's:

Name: Krystal

How many days left? 24 according to my ticker, but am measuring two weeks ahead, so I'll know more tomorrow after my appt!

Any appointments this week? Yep, tomorrow morning!

Are you dilated or effaced at all? Having contractions? Finally had a few contractions here and there over the past couple of days, not sure about any dialation though... that's also something I'll find out tomorrow!

How is your to-do list? Anything you still urgently need? Just another car seat...

Are you feeling DONE? Would you rather have a newborn now than cart around your big belly??? If I could have it my way, I would stay pregnant about another two weeks. I'd love to have him right before Thanksgiving, so that I could be home with baby for the holiday instead of at work.

Anything you want to share? Belly pic? Just that I'm really going to miss being pregnant. It makes me want to cry knowing that I'll never carry another child, never go through another pregnancy... but I feel blessed with my four babies. No new belly pics... I'll try to work on that!

nicole that baby is too cute! need more!!

Name: Nancy

How many days left? about 2.5 weeks until due date

Any appointments this week? yes, tomorrow...wonder if i've changed at all from last week. you know, other than gaining at least 5 lbs in a week.

Are you dilated or effaced at all? Having contractions? braxton hicks contractions big time!

How is your to-do list? Anything you still urgently need? i'm still in denial. lol. the car seat is in the car though so that's a start

Are you feeling DONE? Would you rather have a newborn now than cart around your big belly??? i don't want to be pregnant anymore but i don't want a newborn! lol! i would like to wait as long as possible - i want a bigger baby. my son was so small and i feel like a bigger baby would just be a little easier! also, my son has decided to scream nonstop instead of sleeping. it's bad. he hasn't slept in days and we are so exhausted.

Anything you want to share? Belly pic? i have recently started writing for a disney fan blog. i attended a special private event at the disney store in times square on thursday and wrote the following: http://www.chipandco.com/2011/11/disney-store-holiday-event-in-times-square/53392/
there was a ton of press and some celebs there and thomas and i were in the back of a bunch of pics, including http://www.blackcelebkids.com/2011/11/04/lala-and-family-at-a-disney-store-event/
LOL! my belly is in the first and fourth of the little pics at the bottom

How many days left? around 17

Any appointments this week? Weekly apt is Thurs this week

Are you dilated or effaced at all? Having contractions? Don't really know. When doc did my GBS at 36 since I was already undressed he checked and baby was "right there" and I was soft. Last week I opt'd to not get checked, this week I may skip it again....I find it kind of pointless

How is your to-do list? Anything you still urgently need? We need to get the car seat in the car and I could probably pack a bag.....but I'm not too worried about anything major

Are you feeling DONE? Would you rather have a newborn now than cart around your big belly??? I think I'll be totally ready after this week. I have odds and ends at work and I need to do that but once done I want him out Smile

Anything you want to share? Belly pic? I'm a little bummed that my doc heads out on vaca next week through the 25th so likely won't deliver me. Not much I can do and the doc that covers him is a fine doc but I'd love to go early and have MY doc
