Very late Dec Roll call

I just realized I don't think I ever posted a December roll call!  I'm so sorry I've been a little MIA lately.  I think I've been really worried about getting ready for Christmas and getting ready for this baby.  I have been working so hard on getting the nursery done along with trying to get Christmas things done that I didn't realize how absent I'd been.  Hope you will forgive me. Well, better late then never, lets check in and let everyone know how you're doing.

Name/Location?

Age?

How far along are you?

Any weird symptoms lately?

Are you ready for Christmas?

Name/Location?  Dina/ Iowa

Age? 29

How far along are you? I'm 30 weeks this week and ready to start counting down my weeks in single digits!

Any weird symptoms lately? I've had a lot of leg cramping when sleeping a few days ago.  My doctor had me load up on water and potassium and last night I didn't have any, so let's hope it continues.

Are you ready for Christmas?  Not at all!  I'm off to finish shopping today hopefully.  I have barely decorated, but I have the baby's room all painted which is more of a relief to me than having the Christmas decorations out.  I may keep it simple on the decorations this Christmas!

I can't believe the two of you are in the home stretch! I hope everything goes smoothly for the rest of the pregnancy! I am actually missing being pregnant and feeling my little Aibhlin moving around inside me, enjoy the rest of it as much as you can!

Here is my very late December post...getting in under the wire!  iVillage would not let me sign on for months so I have only been checking in every once in a while and SO wanted to respond a few times but...no luck.  Today, after one final attempt, voila!  Here I am!

So, Name/Location: Tess, Philadelphia; Age: 34

I am now 20w2d pregnant and we are TEAM PINK!!!  I think I know most of the people on this board from TTCYFC which is awesome to see so many of you so far along.  Diane, you are SO close!!  I have been feeling pretty good lately except I'm tired all the time.  But, I was kind of a sleepy person before the pregnancy too :).  I have been feeling kicks for about a week and they are getting more frequent.  DH has felt it once despite me grabbing his hand constantly and putting it on my belly.  Our 20 week US went well and the doc said everything looks perfect.  Little jelly bean weighs an estimated 12oz which I think is pretty average.  All the bits are there and seem to be formed well.  I am starting to let myself get excited which has been so hard after going through so many months of ttc with failed IUIs and IVFs.  I actually walked into a Babies R Us and looked around for the first time.  

Congrats and Happy New Year to everyone!  Keep the updates, stories, and advice coming!!!
