We have some babies around here!! Let's see where we are this week!

How far along are you/ how many days or weeks postpartum are you?

How are you feeling?

What is the hardest thing right now?

What is the best thing right now?

What is going on with your body?

Looking back on the last week (pregnant or not!) what did you enjoy the most and the least?

We have some babies around here!! Let's see where we are this week!

How far along are you/ how many days or weeks postpartum are you? 37 weeks last Saturday!

How are you feeling? Like I'm chronically pregnant.  I'm just so done!

What is the hardest thing right now? working around this LOW belly.  It just gets in the way.

What is the best thing right now? My husband is being super helpful!

What is going on with your body? Lots of contractions, wiggly baby - ready to move on!

Looking back on the last week (pregnant or not!) what did you enjoy the most and the least? Just knowing that every day puts me one day closer to having this little girl in my arms.  Or in DH's - which might actually be better.

How far along are you/ how many days or weeks postpartum are you? 39 weeks tomorrow!

How are you feeling? Feeling really pretty good....sleeping when ever I have a chance

What is the hardest thing right now? Picking things up! And this waiting game!

What is the best thing right now? We are all ready

What is going on with your body? Lots of soreness in my hips...saw a chiropractor to put my pubic bone back in place. At least now I can walk.

Looking back on the last week (pregnant or not!) what did you enjoy the most and the least? I have had a great pregnancy and seriously enjoyed it.

How far along are you/ how many days or weeks postpartum are you?  38 Wednesday

How are you feeling?  Good. Just tired.

What is the hardest thing right now?  moving.  lol  Getting up from lying down. picking stuff up.

What is the best thing right now?  Still just love to watch and feel her move around.

What is going on with your body? I'm looking and feeling like a beached whale!  Other than, nothing much.  A few BH, maybe on occassion.  Her head is on my cervix.  That kind of hurts.

Looking back on the last week (pregnant or not!) what did you enjoy the most and the least? The way my step son is starting to be more aware that there'll be a baby soon.  He's excited to see what she looks like.  If I walk a little slower or take a deep breathe, he asks if I'm okay.  The least- just feeling like I can't move.  The back pains.

Now IV is letting me on. Tongue Out 

We have some babies around here!! Let's see where we are this week! 

So excited that we have had at least 4 babies born on the board now! Wow!

How far along are you/ how many days or weeks postpartum are you?  I will be 39 weeks on Wed.

How are you feeling?  This last week I have a few days where I feel great and get a lot done, and then other days where I feel like I am going into labor any second and am in  a lot of pain.  My hips and ribs are killing me!

What is the hardest thing right now?  Just trying to be patient.

What is the best thing right now?  Feeling him moving around.  He isn't a very active baby, but just squirms around at times.

What is going on with your body?  Doctor checked me today and as soon as he started the check he says "Whoa! You've been contracting".  I am a "loose 2" and 70% effaced.  The doctor said I can wait another week and then he would need to start me.  Since I haven't made it past 39 weeks on the dot, I doubt I will this time.

Looking back on the last week (pregnant or not!) what did you enjoy the most and the least?  The least is waking up in the middle of the night with an aweful contraction and having two things going through my mind- #1- What have I gotten myself into?! This hurts!  and #2 So excited to have it be "time", but then have it stop. Ugh!

" What have I gotten myself into?! This hurts!" I've had this thought a couple of times, but not from contractions. Lily's head is laying on my cervix...and that hurts!

"Lily's head is laying on my cervix...and that hurts!" I know what you mean! Between the headbutts to my cervix, the contractions, and the fact that my legs feel like they are falling out of my hips, I'm in pain pretty much all the time. Even my husband is sympathetic this time around!
