I'll cautiously keep posting in this thread...

Name/SO Name: Alyssa/Kyle

How many weeks are you? 9 according to LMP, less according to recent u/s (see below)

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? I have a midwife appointment on the 21st. I'm guessing I'll have another u/s soon.

Do you feel like you will go early or late? Not sure.

How are you feeling physically? I'm still queasy a lot, and very tired.

How are you feeling emotionally? Horrible. See AFM below.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Nothing at this point.

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? No and not thinking about it.


AFM - update on my u/s: the baby is measuring small (7w1d) and HB was only 86, so not great news. I can explain away the dates because I might have ovulated up to 6 days later than I thought I did, but a low HB like that is not reassuring. However, I haven't talked to a doctor OR midwife about the results, which is really frustrating to me. The results came back Friday afternoon, and of course no one works the weekend. So, I'm spending this weekend in limbo, going between convincing myself the bean is okay, to checking for bleeding a billion times a day. I'll be calling both my family doctor and my midwife on Monday to hopefully get some expert opinions. My guess is they'll send me for another u/s to see how the bean is growing and if the HB is higher.

UGH...so here it is December and I'm still pregnant!!

Name/SO Name:  Em & M.

How many weeks are you?  40w6d

Any exciting dates/appointments this month?  Well EDD came and went last month so the day she's born should be here soon.  Non stress test tomorrow and every other day after that, MW on Tuesday.

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

How are you feeling physically?  Actually pretty decent still.  Not sleeping well at all, but other than that still fine.

How are you feeling emotionally?  Impatient.  But trying to take advantage of and appreciate our last few days just the 3 of us. 

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month?  Just give birth ;)

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue?  It's a girl, apparently a stubborn one.

Alyssa - huge (hugs)  I hope tomorrow brings you good news.  What terrible timing to have to wait all weekend.  I really feel for you.

Name/SO Name: Cassie and Matt

How many weeks are you? I'll be 9 weeks on Tuesday

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? I have my next appointment on the 14th with an u/s

Do you feel like you will go early or late? Not sure. I want to say pretty close to my edd but not major either side. 

How are you feeling physically? Better. Stomach is still annoying at times but getting it better under control. 

How are you feeling emotionally? ehh... at times I forget and at times I'm worried something will go wrong. 

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? We got Simon a big brother shirt. So between that and hopfully an u/s picture that will be our Christmas cards. 

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? I go back and forth. I say blue just because of DH's family. DH is calling Pink. 


Alyssa - thinking about you girl! I hope you get answers in the morning!

Name/SO Name:  Ruby and Robert

How many weeks are you?  22

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? An ultrasound on my abdomen that doesnt involve baby.  Just to get it checked out, I have some symptoms but there really isnt anything they think it could be yet so we'll see.

Do you feel like you will go early or late?  Not sure,  went 2 weeks early with Maxim

How are you feeling physically?  Fine.  Sore when I sleep but nothing out of the ordinary.

How are you feeling emotionally?  Good, very happy and getting excited to meet her

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month?  Not much, DH brought in all the early baby gear from the shed just so we knew we would have it accessible (snow often blocks the door to our shed) but honestly I think that any sorting and cleaning can wait until after Christmas.

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

Do you feel like you will go early or late? Not sure How are you feeling physically? fine. I'm still not as big as I was with my son and everyone said you are bigger with your second.

Selling the rest of his clothes and getting the mess of that bedroom cleaned up so we can move David in there and her into David's current bedroom Do you know the gender yet?

Name/SO Name: Mandy and Randy How many weeks are you? 14 1/2weeks. Any exciting dates/appointments this month? YUP!! Dec. 21st is our special ultrasound. We are paying to find out what the baby is because I want to know before Christmas. :-) Do you feel like you will go early or late? Early. I just have a feeling with all my added somplications thus far that they will not let me go late and will likely just induce me because of one thing or another jsut like last time! How are you feeling physically? Still super tired a lot. But I have more energy. Thats kinda of an oxymoron I suppose but I need my naps still yet I am getting tons done around the house. I also have TERRIBLE back pain that I dont remember with DD. If I do too much or sit too long and such it starts. How are you feeling emotionally? Up and down. Defineltly more emotional than any other time including last pregnancy. I just get upset super easily and cry over everything. BUT I am happy to say that I am finally feelign a little more relaxed now that I am in the 2nd tirmester and just saw the doctor this week and we had a nice strong heart beat again. :-) I am also finally connecting more with DH and we had SEX! :-) What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Find out! :-) Other than that not too much. I started a target baby registry online today. :-) Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? I have no idea. Everyone wants a boy so I am thinking that it will end up another girl. I dont have a preference. But I really want to just know NOW!

Good Monday morning ladies!

Alyssa - Thinking of you today and hoping for the very best.

Em - Hang in there!! Hope your baby girl is here soon!

Cassie - yay for 9 weeks! Glad you're starting to feel a little better!

How is everyone else doing?

AFM - I have been eating super clean and healthy (aka boring), tons of fruits and veggies, very low fat, and my gallbladder has not had any pain in about 5 days now. The area is also getting less sore/tender. So hopefully through eating I can control the issue. Surgery while pregnant, or right after would be terrible! :( So I want to avoid it at all costs. DH is dying though, he's very sweet and trying to be supportive by eating similarly to me, but he's not going to make it much longer! ;) I need to get back into the habit of cooking at home more, but that's always a challenge as I'm a vegetarian and DH is not. Do you ladies (or your DH's) cook at home often? It's such a great way to eat healthier and save money, I want to get better at it before the baby comes!

Have a good Monday all! :)

Mandy - I can't believe you're in your second trimester!!! :) Wow! Can't wait to find out what you're having on the 21st too, so exciting.

Name/SO Name: E & S

How many weeks are you? 21!

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? Our next check-up is not until the 27th, then I think my glucose test will happen in early January.

Do you feel like you will go early or late? No clue! Wish I knew! If I could control it I'd go a little late so I'd have more time to prepare ;)

How are you feeling physically? Since I started paying more careful attention to my eating, much better. Also feel like my belly has grown a ton recently! It's huge!

How are you feeling emotionally? Good.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? I feel like I have so much to do, but most of it will probably wait until after Christmas.

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