Name/SO Name:  Sandy & Jason

How many weeks are you?  6w 3d

Any exciting dates/appointments this month?  my first ultrasound is Friday. I'm pretty nervous about it but my DH says I have nothing to worry about

Do you feel like you will go early or late?  No idea. I was induced with David.

How are you feeling physically?  tired, sore breasts, constipation (sometimes) eating all the time and sometimes heartburn.

How are you feeling emotionally?  Excited!

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month?  nothing yet. Hoping DH gets a job here soon so we can start making over the guest room to David's new room and his room to the baby's room but won't know anything until he finds a job.

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue?  Hoping PINK, no feeling either way yet. 

**What tricks have you used to stay cool while PG in this unbearably hot summer?  Luckily I'm not too far along yet and by the time I have it will have cooled down. 

 

Also since I hadn't time yesterday---Congrats Ruby!

Name/SO Name:  Jamie & Donny

How many weeks are you?  30 today

Any exciting dates/appointments this month?  Just regular OB checks - but after the next one (Aug 10) I go to two-week appts.  

Do you feel like you will go early or late?  I've been thinking early, but I have no reason for that really.  Being a first baby, it's obviously much more likely he'll be late.

How are you feeling physically?  Good.  Sore hips/low back/pelvis, but it's a lot better this week than last.  Still sleeping pretty well, all things considered.  

How are you feeling emotionally?  Right now, great.  Loving the belly, loving the smiles and attention from the belly.  Still have enough time that I'm not freaking out much yet....this is the nicest part of the pregnancy for me so far.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month?  Everything!!!  Baby shower is Aug 18 so we'll be getting the bulk of the stuff then and will get really into setting up and organizing.  We've already done some things - bought a dresser and reorganized our room to fit it in, cleaned out our closets to create more space, bought the infant seat & stroller....  But the big push will happen in the next month or so.

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? He's a sweet little boy!

**What tricks have you used to stay cool while PG in this unbearably hot summer?  Stay inside!  Hahaha.  That and do whatever you can in the early mornings/evenings when it's cooler.  Everyone has asked me how I've been doing in this heat and really it's not been bad.  I go from an ac'ed house, to an ac'ed car, to an ac'ed office and back again.  I've been grocery shopping and running errands early in the mornings on the weekends when I can.  Also, spending weekend afternoons out by the pool have been nice!

Ruby!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations girl! I'm so, so excited for you.  I love seeing NQE girls on this board having babies and stuff.  It's like we all started out together in such a different phase of our lives (I know you were already married back then, but newly so, so still in a very different phase!) and now here we are, having babies.  Our second babies even for some of you.  I love it.

Sandy - Good luck with your u/s. Seeing that little heartbeat fluttering away is just the best feeling in the whole world, isn't it?

Name/SO Name: Liz and Sean

How many weeks are you? 30 today (and it's killing me that none of the tickers are right; lilypie and baby-gaga are all screwed up. best guess is leap year messed things up?!)

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? I've got an appointment 8/1, then I switch to every 2 weeks. They should be pretty routine.

Do you feel like you will go early or late? My goal is to make it to October.

How are you feeling physically? I'm ok. Still throw up some, but it's not terrible. Stabbing pains in my stomach suck.

How are you feeling emotionally? I have my moments. Life in general is stressful right now.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Sort baby clothes. DH packed them all up after Peter, and didn't sort anything by size. *SMH* We also need to figure out a girl name.

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? Feeling pink, hoping blue. I don't really care though; I just want a healthy baby.

**What tricks have you used to stay cool while PG in this unbearably hot summer? Stay really well-hydrated. If we're outside, I try to stay in the shade.

Name/SO Name:  Shawn/KJ

How many weeks are you?  22w5d

Any exciting dates/appointments this month?  Regular OB appt next Thursday and glucose test (ick)

Do you feel like you will go early or late?  This will be a repeat c-section, 9 days early (unless of course baby has other plans!)

How are you feeling physically?  Ok.  Starting to get a little uncomfortable when I sleep already (how is that piossible?!), but overall not feeling too bad.  Haven't had to take zofran in almost two weeks.  Hooray!!!!

How are you feeling emotionally?  Fine.  Sometimes a little overwhelmed with DS, he's been a handful lately, but what 3 year old isn't, I guess!

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month?  We have a lot to do yet.  Have to empty out our spare room which will become baby's room.  We have a bed and our computer in there, plus a bunch of stuff in the closet.  We are leaving for vacation tonight through Sunday, plan on getting started when we get back so I can take my time and not feel rushed.

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

**What tricks have you used to stay cool while PG in this unbearably hot summer?  Ugh, unfortunately I've stayed inside in the a/c a lot.

Congratulations Ruby!!!

Sandy - good luck at your u/s Friday!! 

Jamie - that's great that your shower is coming up!  Hopefully that will help you feel a little more prepared for your little man's arrival!

Liz - glad the throwing up is better, but that'a huge bummer that it's still lingering around.  I can't believe you and Jamie are 30 weeks!!!

Name/SO Name:  Ashley

How many weeks are you? 36

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? My due date :smileyvery-happy:

Do you feel like you will go early or late? I do think I will go earlier then I went with Teddy, how much earlier I am not sure yet- I guess I will find out :smileyvery-happy: LOL

How are you feeling physically? Pretty pregnant! The comments from random strangers about looking very pregnant have already started which could make for a long few weeks. I also have been having some uncomfortable stomach pains, back pain, and trouble breathing which isn't surprising considering it is the last month.

How are you feeling emotionally? Really good. Just soaking up the last weeks with DH and DS as a family of three. 

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? I'm done! I've done everything I need to do before baby comes.

Do you know the gender yet? Another baby boy :smileyvery-happy:

**What tricks have you used to stay cool while PG in this unbearably hot summer? It hasn't been unbearably hot here- often not even in the 70s. It has been great! Now that it has gotten warmer I have a fan blowing on me at night, and during the day I do lots of fun stuff with Teddy outside.

Ruby- Congrats!! How exciting to see you here again:smileyhappy: 

Cassie- Congrats as well! I hope you have a nice 9 months.

AFM: I registered at the hospital today and I have a doctor's appt tomorrow. Everything is going well and Teddy was so happy to see his friends at the Tagesmutter. I can't believe we only have a few weekends left as a family of three!

I love my new doctor!! He is just fantastic. He said the CTG looked great, and he wasn't worried about anything. He didn't do a cervix check because as he said- why, what would be the consenquence? Obviously it wouldn't change anything no matter how it looked so no reason to look at all, very encouraging!
We also talked again about the size and while I won't be going too far over due date (we would induce a few days after) he doesn't see any reason to worry about it now. In fact when he did the ultrasound he checked only the fluid levels and didn't even measure size saying he would do that again in 2 weeks.

Plus at the end he did that, "If I see you in 2 weeks" which is of course highly likely but always a fun positive thing to hear when you reach the end of pregnancy :smileyvery-happy: Also he said at this point even though it is technically still 4days until "full term" he would have absolutely 0 worries about the baby coming and it's health so that is always nice to hear as well.

It is such a nice feeling to leave an appt feeling even more positive then when you came, and when it comes to this pregnancy I am already very positive and upbeat LOL.
