Are You Having A Boy/Girl/Surprise?Boy

Baby's Name? *If you're willing to share*:No name yet

Any Appointments This Week:I have an nst on Tuesday and Friday

How are you feeling:Ok. Tired and achy but ok.

Something Good:My parents are coming to visit this weekend

Something Bad:We tried talking about names yesterday and it was a big bust...nothing feels or sounds right

How Is Your Appetite?I definitely don't have as big an appetite as I did before. Not really feeling meat right now either, but I'm still loving my coarse sea salt

How Active Is LO?He's still pretty active, mostly just stretching and trying to get comfy, not so much kicks

Weight Loss or Weight Gain?+32 but I've held steady the last month or so

Have you started making any progression yet?To my knowledge, absolutely none. The machines haven't recorded any contractions and I don't feel like I've had any

Anything Else You'd Like To Share?They moved Brandon's first day of school to September 12. I'm hoping I make it that long.

Random Weekly Question - Are you trying anything to help progression along or labor to begin?I'm only 35 weeks so I'm not quite ready for him to come out just yet. I don't think we would do anything to try and help things along unless I was pushing 41 weeks which is the longest my OB is comfortable letting me go.

EDD: 9/2!

How Far Along Are You: 39 weeks, 3 days

Are You Having A Boy/Girl/Surprise? boy

Baby's Name? *If you're willing to share*: baby B

Any Appointments This Week: mw on Wednesday, I'll get my first cervical check then!

How are you feeling: great! Not sleeping super well, and VERY stiff/sore in the morning, but once I am up and moving, no major complaints.

Something Good: my due date is FRIDAY!!

Something Bad: people are starting to do the 'is he here yet' calls/texts/facebooks

How Is Your Appetite? just fine, but EVERYTHING gives me heartburn

How Active Is LO? not super active. Just lots of stretching and practice breathing going on now. Every night around 9:30 he has an awake time where he moves more.

Weight Loss or Weight Gain? gain - 24 pounds total

Have you started making any progression yet? I find out on Wednesday!

Anything Else You'd Like To Share? It seems like baby will drop for awhile, then move back up! It's driving me crazy! My crazy belly button will be pointing straight out, then down (and I get all excited that he dropped), then later it will be back to sticking straight out. I'm ready for him to drop and let me breathe already!

Random Weekly Question - Are you trying anything to help progression along or labor to begin? Not this time. I was super-impatient with DS and did everything I could think of/google to get labor going (including castor oil - yuck!) This time I am much calmer about it...but ask me again in a week if I am still pg! Smile

DH/SO Name/Age: DH, 34

LO Name(s)/Age: Abigail, a couple weeks shy of 4

EDD: 9/4

How Far Along Are You: 39+ :eek:

Are You Having A Boy/Girl/Surprise? Surprise

Baby's Name? *If you're willing to share*:

Any Appointments This Week: tomorrow

How are you feeling: Super tired. Thinking my iron is low again.

Something Good: Finished my scheduled shifts at work, and am now officially on maternity leave!

Something Bad: No baby yet.. don't want to use up my maternity leave on pre-baby time! I may pick up a shift or two this week, depending on how I'm feeling.

How Is Your Appetite? Generally low.

How Active Is LO? Still constantly rolling/stretching. I joke that s/he is trying to find an exit near my ribs, since that is where s/he keeps pushing against!

Weight Loss or Weight Gain? Gain of about 17 as of last week. We'll see what it is at the dr tomorrow.

Have you started making any progression yet? Dr hasn't checked me since 36w (when I had the GBS done). At that point I was 1cm and 50%. I don't feel much different, so I doubt I have progressed much from there.

Anything Else You'd Like To Share? I'm trying so hard to enjoy these last baby-free days, but I'm getting anxious to meet this little one and get on with the next phase of our lives! It would be nice to know what day s/he will be arriving!

Random Weekly Question - Are you trying anything to help progression along or labor to begin? No, though DH has offered to "help". So not in the mood for that! Maybe I should just make plans for the rest of the week.. that is a surefire way to guarantee baby arrives soon and dashes plans, right? Wink
