Name/Age? Dawn/33

How far along/Boy/Girl/Surprise? 24 +5/GIRL Smile

Do you have names picked? I think we are leaning toward Bailey Michele, but the runner up is Samantha Michele. This has not been decided for sure yet, but we're getting close. Although it could totally change between now and her birth. LOL

How are you feeling? Hot, tired, slow and this week very emotional. Gotta love these hormones. I'm also really starting to get uncomfortable in bed and turning over is becoming an olympic sport. Smile

Any summer trips planned before LO arrives? We are going to the Outerbanks of North Carolina for a week in September with my BFF and her family. I'm really looking forward to it, however, I'll be 33/34 weeks at that point and probably very slow.

Any vents? The potential for my kids to have the same/very close birthdays. DS was born on Oct 24 and I'm due on Oct 27. I'll have another CS, however, the hospital won't let us schedule before 39 wks and that is Sat the 20. I just know they are going to call and tell me they've scheduled it for Monday the 22. My.kids.cannot.have.the.same.birthday! Sad I'm struggling to come to terms with this. Also, finding a good time to celebrate DS birthday. I was thinking Oct 6 - because any weekend to follow will really be risking me being in the hospital having this LO. DH thinks that it is ridiculously early. Ugh!

Celebrations? My BFF is hosting a baby shower for me on Aug 25.

What have you accomplished to get ready for LO? The nursery furniture was delivered last weekend! Makes me happy. Now we need to paint her room and shampoo the carpet, among a million other things. LOL

Recent baby bump pic: I'll take one tonight and update later.

Name/Age? Chaise/ 26

How far along/Boy/Girl/Surprise? 25 weeks...26 weeks on Saturday GIRL!!!!

Do you have names picked? Alexis Mae L. DH actually named her, we never discussed another name. With DD we almost named her Alexis but there was name drama and we decided on Hailey Jean. So when we found out this was a girl I asked DH what he thought and he said i still love Alexis and that was it Smile Mae is MIL middle name.

How are you feeling? Tired a lot, fat, hot, uncomfortable. I am ready for bed by 930 most nights but then when I lay down i'm so uncomfortable I can't sleep or I get this energy and can't sleep so I lay there or toss and turn. Needless to say I don't sleep well.

Any summer trips planned before LO arrives? Nope nothing exiting. We will go visit my parents and some family i'm sure but they are only a few hours away.

Any vents? I hate this heat Sad I really with baby would move so DH and DD can feel her. My job is driving me crazy and DD not only had a cold and allergies but she's also getting her 2 yr molars in....which makes for a cranky needy 2 yr old and an agitated preggo mama.

Celebrations? No baby shower for me. DD is only 2 and she was born in September so this baby being born in October they will be in the same season cycle. I kept everything from DD. It'd be nice to have one and feel special for this baby but I'm not gunna dwell on it. I think maybe after baby is born we will have a "meet the baby" party at our house.

What have you accomplished to get ready for LO? I have the nursery almost done. I have the bedding, diaper stacker, valances etc. I have the room painted and decorated and the rocker in there. I need to get a new crib mattress/dark light curtains/dresser. Once I get the dresser I can start washing all the clothes and get them put away. I have an itch to get the bottles and everything cleaned but i'll hold out till beginning of Sept then i'll get the bottles washed and the swing/bouncer/baby toys/pack n play etc brought upstairs and wiped down. DH keeps telling me to calm down....he obviously doesn't understand nesting Smile

Extra::::: We have a 3d ultrasound on Saturday and i'm so excited. DH MIL SIL my sister mom dad BIL and niece will all be there. Its going to be really special for MIl who hasn't ever been to an u/s so she's super excited.

Recent baby bump pic: ugh I hate pics lately...i'll have to take one my last is 2 weeks ago.

Where is everyone?!?! This board is dead. I agree this board is DEAD! What is the deal?

Name/Age? Regan/34

How far along/Boy/Girl/Surprise? Girl

Do you have names picked? Not yet.

How are you feeling? Overall - good.

Any summer trips planned before LO arrives? Nothing too far. I get so uncomfortable after sitting for long periods of time. The furthest we'll go is a zoo a few hours away.

Any vents? Just the heat. I liked being pg in the winter better than I do the summer. It's been soooo hot here. This week has been much better but the two weeks prior were 105-110 degrees F. TOO EFFING HOT!!! Smile

Celebrations? Almost to the 3rd tri!!

What have you accomplished to get ready for LO? The nursery is very close to being ready. I've hit some great garage sales for clothes. Still have a few things to get but not much. We have all our big stuff from DS.

Recent baby bump pic: I have one but no time to post yet. I wish it were easier to post pics on this site.

Name/Age? Jennifer/44

How far along/Boy/Girl/Surprise? 27 weeks, Boy & Girl twins

Do you have names picked? Kinda...secret for now

How are you feeling? Struggling, carrying twins is really rough for me.

Any summer trips planned before LO arrives? Nope, on couch rest.

Any vents? I have extra amniotic fluid, makes the pains, weight, backaches, reflux, and sleepless-ness even worse. Tired of constant scans but I know it's for the best, I can't drive so I'm grateful my Stepdad's been my chauffeur. I am sure the fluid is just a "fluke" since babies look perfectly healthy.

Celebrations? Glad to be close to 28 weeks, major milestone of viability.

What have you accomplished to get ready for LO? Nursery is all done, everything bought except debating on getting a Bugaboo Donkey or seeing how much the Valco Spark Duo weighs, etc, and compares to the Donkey. Donkey's getting a new chassis in Sept, so basically waiting.

Recent baby bump pic: Do not want to scare anyone, haha, I am so huge, I'm even up 2 sizes in maternity clothes.
