Random Weekly Question - With only a couple months to go before our first babies start arriving, how prepared are you? Not very! Today I finally started sorting through clothes (most are what I had boxed up from DD, but there are a few boxes of stuff SIL gave me recently). Holy crap, we have a ton! All I've done so far is sort into piles by size (I'll wash the smaller stuff later), and this kid is going to have a new outfit with every diaper change, I think!

The nursery is set-up, the pnp is in our room ready to go, coming home outfit purchased. We still need the carseat, stroller, and another pnp for the living room, as far as big things go. We have a few more smaller things to buy but I'm waiting until after my "sprinkle." Other than that I need to pack a hospital bag and schedule our Maternity Tea & Tour and we'll be all set. I'm not due until the end of the month though so I have a bit more time than most of you.

How are you feeling: pretty good

Something Good: had an US on thursday.. baby looks good. fluid level great and my A1C is within range

Are You Having A Boy/Girl/Surprise? girl

Baby's Name? *If you're willing to share*: no idea yet

Any Appointments This Week: no Sad

How are you feeling: pretty good other than losing feeling in my fingers and toes

Something Good: I have way more movement with this one than with DD1 so I feel like everything is ok

Something Bad: We are still waiting for Dh's visa info to be entered so he can get his SSN so his work can submit his medical insurance paperwork. I thought 2 months would be long enough. The insurance company says they will reimburse us for any expenses we inccur at this time but the OB/GYN office says they will charge us the full amount for a pregnancy so I'm trying to hold off on another appointment until it is sorted out. I had my last appointment right before we moved so I am only at the 4 week point between appointments but I'm starting to get nervous now that I'm entering the 3rd trimester!

How Is Your Appetite? too good

How Active Is LO? very. her kicking/punching wakes me up at night

Weight Loss or Weight Gain? +25 lbs. Thinking positive I weigh less than in I did with DD1 at this point even though I started 10 lbs heavier.

Anything Else You'd Like To Share? I can't believe how much better I feel this pregnancy than with my first

Random Weekly Question - With only a couple months to go before our first babies start arriving, how prepared are you?
We set up the furniture in the baby's room and DD1 has moved to a real bed and her toddler bed was converted back to a crib. Probably in the next 1-2 weeks I'll start washing the newborn clothes and putting them in the dresser. The baby's room has also become a storage room for things that need to be moved to the basement once the basement is organized.

Weight Loss or Weight Gain? +9
Anything Else You'd Like To Share? I have taken a bit of a step back from the boards. After my scare last week and the number of ladies having trouble, I was getting anxious

Random Weekly Question - With only a couple months to go before our first babies start arriving, how prepared are you?
After my scare last week, I have done all the important things but we haven't even started DD's big room (I can't get a hold of the lady doing her bedding - luckily I have shelled out any money yet), DH still needs to find a job (he is currently a SAHD but will go to work while I am off on mat leave), and we need to buy another crib mattress.

Any Appointments This Week: I am supposed to have an U/S sometime this week but am waiting to hear when.

How are you feeling: I am feeling better than I was a few days ago. They said it was an infection I had, more than likely a kidney infection. Serious stuff I guess. But am now on antibiotics.

Something Good: Baby is still doing great and I can tell she is growing stronger!

Something Bad: I failed my 1 hour GD test! UGH! So now I have to do the 3 hour!

How Is Your Appetite? It's stable. I am still eating a lot of fruit.

How Active Is LO? She is pretty active! Especially during her once a day NST's.

Weight Loss or Weight Gain? Weight Gain

Anything Else You'd Like To Share? I am feeling very optimistic now about this pregnancy. I can't believe I've survived being in a hospital 24/7 for 2 weeks today!

Random Weekly Question - With only a couple months to go before our first babies start arriving, how prepared are you? [COLOR=Black]This question totally made me laugh! Needless to say, I don't feel prepared at all! I do have tons of clothes for her because that's the only thing I started buying early. But I have nothing else! I am going to have to start online shopping soon and some family has mentioned having a baby shower here in my hospital room. The staff has already given the go ahead for that too. However, I would like to wait until August now. Anyway, now I am rambling...:)

EDD: 9/21-ish

How Far Along Are You: almost 27 weeks

Are You Having A Boy/Girl/Surprise? boy

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

Any Appointments This Week: Yep, have a midwife appointment on Wednesday with my glucose test, I think I'm on to every 2 weeks then?!

How are you feeling: Pretty good actually! I have noticed more contractions, at least 2 an hour or so, but that's pretty normal for me. Honestly though other than that I am surprised at how good I feel. I've had bad heartburn and some things are getting harder but overall no swelling yet and still have a good amount of energy ***knock on wood*** so very thankful for it

Something Good: Appointment this week, ordered the crib and mattress, got fabric for the baby's bedding Biggrin

Something Bad: Some health concerns for my DS1

How Is Your Appetite? pretty normal, starting to feel full a lot faster though

How Active Is LO? Definitely pretty active, I love watching my belly these days, he's really started with hiccups now and with the big movements where one whole side of your belly sticks way up for a second or two and then goes back down Lol

Weight Loss or Weight Gain? Gain, not sure how much since I haven't been weighed in about 4 weeks...but I'm sure it's plenty Lol

Anything Else You'd Like To Share? Not much, pretty boring week for us for the most part

Random Weekly Question - With only a couple months to go before our first babies start arriving, how prepared are you? Not really prepared at all...I'm really not that worried, so long as I get the big stuff done by 32 weeks and the rest done by 34 weeks I'll be fine and with 5 weeks until 32 weeks I'm not feeling much of a rush yet.

29-ish weeks

Are You Having A Boy/Girl/Surprise? Boy!

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

Any Appointments This Week:
I have my 3-hour glucose screen on Wednesday. Still waiting to hear if I can use their wireless so I can work during the test. Otherwise I have to take the day off! (which means one less day of maternity leave)

How are you feeling:
SO much better since I have cut out most of my carbs and focused on eating tons of protein. I didn't even realize how sluggish I was feeling until I made those changes. night and day!

Something Good:
Someone sent me a gift card for baby things, so I am SO excited to use that!

Something Bad:
3 hour glucose test on Wednesday. yuck!

How Is Your Appetite?
much more steady since I've upped the protein. I didn't realize how much eating lots of starch was affecting my appetite

How Active Is LO?
Pretty active, still breech and totally stubborn about moving into any other positions.

Weight Loss or Weight Gain?
Net gain, but a 2 pound loss from last week. All water weight from changing my diet.

Anything Else You'd Like To Share?
I'm really starting to get nervous about the breech baby thing. He really isn't even flipping back to transverse now. I'm going to have my mw check his position again on Wednesday when I go in for my GD test, and if she agrees that he is still breech, I will start weekly acupuncture to try and help him flip.

Random Weekly Question - With only a couple months to go before our first babies start arriving, how prepared are you?
We're getting there. We still have some work to do in the nursery, but most of the big stuff is accounted for (car seat, bouncer, bassinet, etc) The last big thing I am hoping someone buys for us is a swing. I still haven't washed anything, and I have new cloth diapers that will need repeated washing before use, so I need to at least start those soon!

We still have a lot of rearranging to do to accommodate Thalia in our bedroom. I'm just waiting for the baby shower to see what we are missing and still need to buy. I know my family is getting the crib and that is the biggest item that will take up the most space in our bedroom. We'll work around that.
