Any Appointments This Week: Yes, I have a video conference with the delivering Dr Friday morning.

How are you feeling: Sore & tired. And FRUSTRATED!

Something Good: Getting closer to the end, and the weather isn't so hot today.

Something Bad: The kids are acting up soooo much and I'm seriously losing everything - patience, sanity, temper... you name it. I really hate it and it really, really sucks Sad :(

How Is Your Appetite? Off and on. I actually indulged in some ice cream last night without passing what was left over to hubby lol

Random Weekly Question - How much does LO hiccup? She hiccups ALOT! As of the last week or so, that's ALL she does. I think once an hour she has a LONG hiccup spell, sometimes I notice it more than once an hour. She's really practicing her breathing to come out. I keep reminding her though that it's ok to practice but she can NOT come out sooner than 36/37 weeks!

How Active Is LO? this baby is totally a night owl. DS was very active in the afternoons at this point. This LO waits until about 8:30 to get crazy. He is a wild thing when he gets going too! I'm a little scared that he is going to be my wild child.
