Name/SO Name: Cheryl/Kevin

How many weeks are you? 34 weeks, 2 days :smileyhappy:

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? Weekly apts from here on out starting with this Friday :smileyhappy:

Do you feel like you will go early or late? Probably Late. Baby #1 was born on his due date, baby #2 was 3 days late, so the chances of this baby coming early are slim to none.

How are you feeling physically? Like crap. I have horrible pain almost constant, in my back, hips and neck. It has gotten to the point that I have been in tears the pain is so bad. It takes me forever just to get out of bed, which is not a good thing when you have and 19 month old screaming his head off in the middle of the night.

How are you feeling emotionally? Pretty good. I have my moments.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Pack the hospital bag, put baby clothes in dresser, put car seat in car, bring bassinet in from barn. Now that I think about it, I have LOTS to do this month!

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? Baby boy :smileyhappy:

**What's the best/worst thing about being PG? :-D

The best is feeling the baby move around ( before it becomes to painful) and just knowing that there is a a little life growing inside of you. The worst- The pain at the end of PGcy.

Name/SO Name: Jules/DH

How many weeks are you? 32 weeks 1 day

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? I have the slew of appointments of late pregnancy coming down the pike.  Starting Friday!

Do you feel like you will go early or late? I certainly hope a little early.  I've never made it to my due date, so we shall see.

How are you feeling physically? Like utter crap.  Pregnancy has always and will always treat me like a red-headed stepchild.  I can't breathe.  I can't move.  I am so swollen that I wonder if I will ever have real toes again!

How are you feeling emotionally? It varies.  I have these people that count on me to take care of them and feed them, so I try to keep it together. 

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Get situated.  We don't have anything in the house beyond clothes and diapers yet.  I need to get stuff out of the shop/barn and get them cleaned up.  Or replaced. 

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink orblue? It's a sweet baby girl!!

**What's the best/worst thing about being PG? :-D I don't love being pregnant.  It's hard, but I enjoy knowing that I have the opportunity to be a mother from the very first breath.  I also enjoy knowing that it isn't permanent!

Name/SO Name: Liz and Sean

How many weeks are you? 38w6d

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? I expect I'll have a baby. :smileywink:

Do you feel like you will go early or late? Who the heck knows? I've already been pregnant a week longer than I was with Peter.

How are you feeling physically? Pretty miserable. I'm taking tylenol around the clock just to function through the rib pain. They say there's nothing to do other than have the baby. Otherwise it isn't too bad unless baby twists and hits a nerve. I have yet to swell, though I have removed my rings pre-emptively, just in case I get an IV at the hospital.

How are you feeling emotionally? I'm just done. Nesting hit so hard yesterday that when Sean tried to convince me to go to the park, I broke down sobbing that our house was too dirty and I needed to clean. Peter's also been really clingy, so I'm sure that doesn't help at all.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? We want a new infant car seat, but it's not a necessity. At this point, I'm as ready as I can be.

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink orblue? I feel pink, but who knows? Peter says it's a sister girl.

**What's the best/worst thing about being PG? :-D I love feeling the rolling movements, but I really hate the end when you hit the miserable point. And it's tough with a toddler who only wants mama and has to touch me all.the.time.

Name/SO Name: Jessica & Mike

How many weeks are you? I will be 34 weeks this friday

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? Just more ultrasounds weekly on Monday and going through my MW appointments. I am going to discuss the "plan" with my midwife next week to see what she is thinking for how long she is going to let me go. my OB talked about inducing at 39 weeks.

Do you feel like you will go early or late? probably early.

How are you feeling physically? I am actually feeling pretty well. just some heartburn and hip pain at night. I have started the waddle everytime I walk now :smileyhappy:

How are you feeling emotionally? a little freaked out realizing that I only have 6 weeks until my due date...but I know this work will be done. and the nursery is almost complete.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? We just have to move the crib and the dresser. and finish washing a few things. I have to get a coming home outfit, but I think I know what I want just need to find the right size now. OH and my BFF is planning a shower for me even though it's our 2nd baby. She is so sweet, so I need to finish up the registery. 

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink orblue? Pink 

**What's the best/worst thing about being PG? :-D One of the worst is the fact that everyone seems to think I can't do anything.....but it is nice to get help :smileyhappy:

AFM - I had my 2nd BIophysical - fluid went up a little but still good. She was sticking her tongue out and had the hiccups this time. so darn freaking adorable!!!

Name/SO Name:  Shawn/KJ

How many weeks are you?  31w4d

Any exciting dates/appointments this month?  Just regular OB appt this week, then I'm on bi-weekly appts.

Do you feel like you will go early or late?  Early, should be November 20th as long as baby doesn't have other ideas!

How are you feeling physically?  Ok.  Back is starting to hurt off and on and my hips still hurt pretty bad at night.  Starting to make even more bathroom trips and it's definitely harder to bend over :smileyhappy:

How are you feeling emotionally?  Also ok.  Is it weird that I'm only 7 weeks out from delivery and still haven't really had that "a-ha" moment.  Like holy cow, we're really having another baby?

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month?  I need to get the bassinet from my grandma's house.  Pick up a couple of breastfeeding supplies.  Nothing major (I don't think, unless I'm forgetting something!)  Finally finished most of the nursery!

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink orblue?  pink!

**What's the best/worst thing about being PG? :-D  Best thing is movement, for the most part anyway :smileyhappy:  Also the anticipation that comes with baby and your growing family!  Worst part is just the general discomforts that come with pregnant, both at the beginning and at the end!

Name/SO Name: Suzie and Joe

How many weeks are you?  6 weeks-ish

Any exciting dates/appointments this month?  10/17 first u/s!  :smileyhappy:

Do you feel like you will go early or late?  Early, I guess

How are you feeling physically?  Whine, whine, whine.  I'm tired and my back aches.  I want to eat or throw up- there is no in between... :smileywink:  But I am eating well and exercising and my hubby rubs my back so overall, I'm okay! 

How are you feeling emotionally?  I'll feel better in 16 days after my u/s, knowing that "Tot" will be sticking around.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month?  Nothing yet.  Just keep taking care of myself.  :smileyhappy:

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink orblue?  I've been saying 'he' but I really want a 'she.'

**What's the best/worst thing about being PG? :-D
BEST:  Knowing you are growing a person, feeling the baby move and having that bond of unconditional love so quickly (I loved you when you were a rapidly multiplying ball of cells...)

WORST: Uncertainty and discomforts of 1T.

Cheryl - Yay for weekly appointments!  Just another sign that you're in the home stretch! 

Jules - I'm sorry you're feeling crappy :smileysad:  Hang in there mama, getting closer!!

Liz - I'm sorry you're feeling crapp, too :smileysad:  Youre, so, so close!!  Can't wait to find out what it is!

Jessica - Glad the ultrasound went well!  Hard to believe so many of us are towards the end now!

AFM -  As noted above I almost finished the nursery this weekend.  Waiting on some bedding to be delivered yet and need to get some blinds for the window, but that's minor, espcially since she won't be sleeping in there right away.  I need to do her name letters for the wall, but that would require choosing a name.  We're still deciding between two, although I think we're leaning about 60/40 toward Stella.  We'll see, though!  Other than that things are chugging along!

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? I have my next ultrasound October 27 and we will fin out what we are having. can't wait

Do you feel like you will go early or late? have no idea

How are you feeling physically? Ok except for the stuffy nose and headaches.

How are you feeling emotionally? I would be better if we could find jobs but otherwise good.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? don't really have anything. I know we need to start working on the bedroom soon but waiting until we find out.

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink orblue? see above. I have no idea. My husband thinks it's a girl since we have an attic full of boy clothes. David thinks it's a boy so we'll see.

**What's the best/worst thing about being PG?  I do miss my sushi and sometimes drinking but I'm not a huge drinker anyway. I am excited now that I am finally starting to show and not looking fat but starting to look pregnant. I'm trying to enjoy it since it's my last time.
