Pregnant
Due date/how far along are you: EDD Wednesday, so 39+4
Are you working? Or maternity leave?: SAHM
Most recent appt: Last Wednesday
How did it go?: completely boring other than confirming that I do in fact have PUPPS.
Next appt: This wednesday.
what does it entail: Just the usual stuff - BP, pulse, weight, checking on my PUPPS, HB, measuring.
Any signs of labor?: Zoe dropped this weekend! From self checks I know my cervix is slowly getting lower.
Have you tried anything to get labor going?: Nope. Just doing what I've been doing - taking my supplements, using my birth ball, walking, and watching my posture and such when sitting.
Induction or csection date set?: Not till 42 weeks! Smile
How are you feeling these days: TONS of downward centered pressure (quadrupled overnight!), so walking is more difficult than ever. However, no back issues or anything else! Well, just the PUPPS itching that's driving me NUTS.

Anything else you want to add: Just doing my best to be patient and positive about my VBAC.


yesterday - 39+3........................................................Sunday night - 38+4
(Wish my latest belly pic was with a different shirt - one that shows off how funky the top of my belly looks because it's flat!)

Pregnant
Due date/how far along are you: 37w5d
Are you working? Or maternity leave?: Just started my maternity leave because I had to leave town for delivery.
Most recent appt: 11/7
How did it go?: Great heart rate for baby, great BP for me, GBS negative!

Next appt: 11/13
what does it entail: Not really sure. Probably a lot of talking since it will be my first appt with the midwife I will be delivering with.
Any signs of labor?: Tons of pressure and here and there contractions... That's about all.
Have you tried anything to get labor going?: No. I'm actually trying to avoid labor for at least another 4 days because that's when DH will be arriving...
Induction or csection date set?: Nope.
How are you feeling these days: Pretty damn uncomfortable...

These are my most recent, from Halloween.
Anything else you want to add: I'm just glad to be where I'm delivering, it is a huge relief. I'm definitely ready to have this baby be born... LOL

Pregnant
Due date/how far along are you: 11/27 - currently 37w 6d
Are you working? Or maternity leave?: Neither, but I'm a sahm for the time being so I still don't get much rest.
Most recent appt: Wed Nov, 7th
How did it go?: Good, pretty boring. I didn't think they were going to check me but they did - sadly I was only 1cm and not effaced at all. My total weight gain is only 11lbs and both my BP and the baby's heart rate were great. Also my Strep B came back negative. (woot!)
Next appt: Wed Nov, 14th
what does it entail: They'll probably check me again - depending on if I've made any progress we might discuss induction options because of Carson's size but idk if I want to go that route.
Any signs of labor?: TONS of bh (especially at night) but nothing else
Have you tried anything to get labor going?: not really, we've been trying to DTD more often in hopes of it stirring something up - plus poor DH will be without for a few weeks so it's an excuse for him to get some while he can so he doesn't mind. lol
Induction or csection date set?: not yet.
How are you feeling these days: Tired, uncomfortable. I'm finally to the point where I just want my baby! (though I'm sure I'll regret wishing for it to end so quickly when I can't get any sleep with a newborn!)
Anything else you want to add: Nope, I don't have any belly pics because I haven't taken any in a month or so. I'll have to get a new one.

Postpartum
What was your due date?: 11/21/12
Baby's actual birth date?: 11/7/12
How far along were you when you delivered: 38 weeks to the day
Delivery method (induced, section, or go into labor on your own?): Labor augmented ie. was contracting and dilating, doctor broke my water to get things to go a bit faster
Baby's weight at birthbirth: 6lbs 1oz
Baby's weight now: 5lbs 14oz
General baby update: Kellen was dicharged from the hospital at 5lbs 11 oz, and at his dr appt today was 5lbs 14oz. Doctor was happy with that. Right now I am sitting in the childrens hospital with him. He was addmitted this afternoon for an infection in his eye. He was fine this morning. Then, around noon his eye started to swell and ooze puss. I tried dripping some of my milk into it, and then layed down for a nap while DH had some bonding time while the middle 2 napped. Then, a bit before 2pm DH woke me up because his eye was getting worse. I brought him into the urgent care. They took some of the puss to culture, and then the doctor came in to talk to me. She said that given his age/size, how fast the infection came on, and the fact that at that point the swelling was to the point that they couldnt get it open enough to see his eye ball, that the safest thing to do wad admit him, put him on iv antibiotics, and wait for the cultures to come back. So, DH is at home with the older 3, and I am here. Luckily my aunt is going to be able to watch the middle two while DH is at work (DS1 will be at school). I am really hoping that we will be out of here by the time DS1 needs to be picked up.
