I guess it's only just a title per say but still! I'm so excited. I'd have to say at this point I'm feeling the best probably bc obviously there are no more early pregnancy symptoms, baby's movements are off the charts when she is dancing in there and I can see my whole belly move, and sooner than we think we will be able to meet these kids! How are you all feeling? I know we do have time, but anything left to do that HAS to get done before baby's arrival? Like I have to get her carseat, haha. I think I can manage to swing that in the next 12 to 13 weeks. How are you feeling about labor/delivery? I'm EXCITED honestly because it's just an amazing thing. I know it hurts, but I know what to expect mostly so I don't have that unknown fear. When do you THINK you will go? I'm hoping before my due date. Nothing crazy early of course, but Chloe was 5 days before hers and Oliver was about 2 weeks (water broke @ Chic-fil-a :), both naturally, so a week before would be perfect I think! It's all up to Miss Ella though so we will see :) I'm getting a nb Thankgiving sleeper just in case!

How are you all feeling? I'm feeling great overall. My tummy feels like it's stretching which sometimes itches and sometimes I battle insomnia for an hour or two at night but in general, I feel pretty good. I have a doc appt tomorrow for my glucose test.

I know we do have time, but anything left to do that HAS to get done before baby's arrival? My biggest MUST DO is take an infant CPR class. This weekend we got the crib put together and bought the mattress. We still need a carseat, which I'm hoping we get at one of our showers. Our showers are Oct 15th and Nov 12th so we'll see what we still need to get after those. We've started decorating the nursery but since we're not going crazy that shouldn't be too difficult.

How are you all feeling? I'm feeling pretty good. I'm tired and somewhat achey but that's all I can complain about right now.

I know we do have time, but anything left to do that HAS to get done before baby's arrival? Like most of the other ladies I'm waiting until after my shower to get everything REALLY going. We did go ahead and buy the crib but it's on back order so I don't see myself going crazy on the nursery until I get it.

How are you feeling about labor/delivery? I honestly haven't really thought about it much. I'm a ftm mom so I'm sure as it gets closer I'll start freaking out.

I am feeling pretty good but having sleep issues because my hips are so achy and I literally have to switch sides and pee every 90 minutes! I am also feeling the shortness of breath because I am carrying high!

I need to get the room organized and purchase necessities but waiting until after my Oct 30 shower.

Not worried about labor and delivery with this being #3 but I do have a fear of c-sections so hopefully this will be vaginal like the other 2.

My first 2 were late so I expect to meet baby around due date of Dec 7!

Jayla I had to laugh bc I swore I wouldn't waddle. Never have really and I KNOW I do......don't dare tell anyone I know lol! It's bc of my back. It's nothing awful but I guess it's the weight in the front and it makes it harder to stand up tall and straight and it leads to a waddle. :( Oh well. Long as no one points it out we will all be jussssst fine.

I'm nowhere near the third trimester -- only hit 23 weeks yesterday, by my count, and not officially until Tuesday.

I hit T3 on my daughter's 6th birthday. I'm just starting the nursery today so that's exciting!

I really hope I make it to Dec 20-the day I have my c/s scheduled. My daughter was almost a month early and, though she was healthy, I don't want to do that again. My body hasn't given me any warnings that he's coming early. I hope my intuition kicks in with this one, too.

I'm still nervous about a c/s. Instead of focusing on my safe and successful 1st one and all my friends who have been fine, my mind keeps going to the girl who died after hers in Dec.

I'm feeling pretty good. I get tired easier and achy when I exercise too much which is kind of annoying, but other than that am doing okay!

Not sure that I have anything that HAS to be done other than maybe find the box in the attic that has my pump in it. There are quite a few things I would like to do though. For example, I still haven't hung anything on the walls yet in the nursery. I also need some more clothes for her but have been holding off until after my shower.

Not in the least bit concerned about delivery. I had a c-section last time and will have another this time. Last time was a great experience so I can't complain.

My c-section will be scheduled 7-10 days ahead of time. I guess my only fear is that she decides she wants to come sooner. For some reason I have a strong feeling she will. I would just assume not have to experience contractions at all so hopefully she'll wait until her planned birthday!
