    The baby is doing great. I can feel how big she's getting. She is so strong! She's very active now. At night I can lay ther for an hour or so and just feel her move.

    I went swimming a couple of times this weekend. It was exhausting but fun. I can tell it was good exercise because my legs were a bit sore. I'll probably keep it up all summer. Its a great relief from the heat! I'm counting down the days here at work. I only have three weeks to go. Only about 2 more months before the baby arrives. I am so excited!

    I can't wait to start getting some good sleep again!! This has been a healthy pregnancy but its been hard as hell on me. DS's pregnancy was easier. It was also healthy.

    I'll write back later.

    30 weeks

    10 to go!! I've been on an emotional rollercoaster lately. DH hasn't helped. I chalk most of it up to pregnancy hormones for both of us! I've tried to stop being so sensitive but its tough these days.

    The baby has dropped. I'm breathing much easier. I'm also going to the bathroom a lot more so I'm pretty sure that she has turned head down. Also, I get pretty sore when I walk for a long time.

    Nothing much to report. I have a doctor's appt on Tuesday. I should get the results from my GD test. Otherwise, I expect a pretty uneventful visit.

    Well time is winding down. I bought her a bunch of cute outfits yesterday. I've been praying that the u/s tech was right and it trully is a girl. I feel that it is. I hope that it is. Another u/s would sure comfort me!

    until later

    30 weeks 4 days

    I had a docs appt today. All is well. Glucose test is fine. I gained 5 lbs in 3 weeks. I weigh 163. My total weight gain is now 24lbs. I've been having round ligament pain and indigestion. I got some Alka Seltzers though. Hopefully that'll do the trick.

    The baby is doing great. She's doing so good.

    We had quite a scare yesterday. I was bleeding when I peed. We went to the hospital and had another u/s. The baby is perfectly fine and she really is a girl!

    This morning I found out that I have a bladder infection. Thank God its not preterm labor!!

    My mom took me to the doctor and shopping today. We got basically everything. We just have to get a carseat and some other odds and ends. I need to wash all her stuff and get it organized. It feels so close. 4 weeks and I'll be full term.

    Well that all for now.

    On Sunday I washed most of Summer's stuff. I did two loads. I still need to do about two more. All of her essential stuff is washed so if she were born today we're ready. I also put all of her care items away in the kids bathroom.

    My sister's Godmom is going to buy her carseat. Other than that I need to get a nursery organizer for her first few months.

    I'll be full-term in about 3.5 weeks. I can't wait! I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. I'll update after.

    My doctor's appt went well yesterday. My infection has cleared up. I have to finish the antibiotics today and tomorrow.

    The baby is doing great. She was moving the whole visit. He said her heart rate was excellent. My fundal height was good too. I didn't ask what it was.

    I have to go back in 2 weeks. Then every week. We're getting close.

    I'm real tired and pretty irritable. This heat is terrible. My back has been hurting a lot lately too. I can't wait to have her.

    We're ready for her now! I still have to get her dresser from my dad's but everything is washed and waiting. I finished up my hospital bag today. I went to Wal-Mart and Target to grab the last few things I needed. I need to get fresh batteries for the camera. I better not forget the camera! In about 2 weeks she'll be full-term. I can't wait. I think she's coming before her due date. My neighbor predicted that she will come 8/25. That's a bit too early but I hope she comes anytime after 9/4.

    I'm just waiting now. I will probably try to grab a few more packs of diapers and nursing pads before she comes. But if I don't its o.k. If breast feeding works out, I'll have to buy a pump. I'll get a cheap hand pump from the hospital. That'll be o.k. since I need to BF exclusively for a few weeks to establish a good milk supply.

    That's it for now.

    We're just counting down now!!

    I gained 4 pounds in 2 weeks. She's putting on weight. That makes me happy.

    I've been having a lot of pain lately. Mostly pelvic pain. I've had some contractions but now real labor yet! Its still a bit early anyway.

    Well its on to another week!!

    According to my doctor, I'm 37 weeks today and I'll be full-term in 1 week. That's a bit different than this site's timing but he's the doctor! Lately, at night it has felt like she's trying to push her way out! I can feel her hands literally pushing against my bladder. It also feels like she's pushing against my cervix!

    I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. I'll update after.

    I had my doctor's appt on 9/3. I was having contractions on Wed. but no real progress. I was only dialted 1cm. I haven't had contractions since. According to this site, I'm full-term today. The doctor says I'm full-term on 9/9.

    I don't have much to report. Nothing has happened. I need tons and tons of easy labor vibes so send them my way!
