Name/SO Name: Jessica/Mike

How many weeks are you? I will be 38 weeks on Friday EEK!

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? Just expecting our baby girl! 

Do you feel like you will go early or late? Not sure, I am hoping not in the next week, because DH is gone from Friday to Monday afternoon hunting. 

How are you feeling physically? Physically I feel like Crap. there I said it. I have reached the freaking end of this pregnancy and I want it over....I can't sleep at night because between getting up to pee, hip pain and now back pain added last night (I laid in the tub too long) no amount of pillows or position is good enough. I totally waddle with this big tummy hanging out (see picture below)....Sorry I am just done! but she can't come for another week ;)

How are you feeling emotionally? Emotionally I am okay - we are dealing with a lot of outside stuff - see below.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Just having the baby. We have her room all ready, and set. my baby bag is 90% packed.

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

More of an update: So  we are still battling with our contractor. Turns out there has been some shady/fradulent stuff going on by our PM, so the owner fired him. We are meeting with the owner today to see what's up. but there have been no payments as of yet made to the plumber, electrical, and HVAC. We are estimating that 50K of the work hasn't been paid for, but we have paid 40K of that already. so we are a bit nervous and scared. I really hope he remedies it....so that's been my main stressor. I just can't believe how betrayed I feel, how stupid I feel. We did our homework and yet this is how we were treated.

Work is going well though, it's actually nice to be home, if I wasn't home I would go crazy because I literally have NOTHING to do. I have some reviews and some final touch up stuff here and there, meetings to attend, but that's it. so the days get long.

I can't remember if I updated after Monday's appt. so if you already heard about that, skip this last paragraph - blame it on pregnancy brain...

I had a good appt I am 2cm and 50% effaced, but she said the baby was still high. If she isn't here by the 15th we are either going to induce on the 16th or that following Monday. I might just push for the 16th but it would be nice to have an extra day and if we went with the 19th then Gabby could be in daycare while we were at the hospital which would be easier for my parents. so we will see what happens. I am going to talk to my mom about it and see what she says....

Hope everyone is doing well!

Name/SO Name: Jules and DH

How many weeks are you? 36.5 weeks today. 

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? Just the usual weeklies to check progress.  We are having an ultrasound next Thursday - our last one EVER. 

Do you feel like you will go early or late? I know I'll go early.  I'm already 2cm and baby is low.  Doc thinks in the next 10-14 days based on the contractions I've been having and my general appearance. 

How are you feeling physically? The last part of pregnancy is rude.  Just plain rude.  I'm uncomfortable and ready to be done.  I'm also dealing with a miserable head cold - and so is the rest of my household. 

How are you feeling emotionally? CRANKY.  I keep trying not to talk too much because I'm going to say something mean if I do!  I'm a little weepy and overwhelmed.  I expect that will go away in the postpartum period.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? We still have so much to do, but I just don't care.  If the baby showed up tomorrow, we'd make it.

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? It's a girl!  And she might finally have a name, but I don't dare share it until she's born because DH will change his mind if I do!

Name/SO Name: Cassie and Matt

How many weeks are you? 4w 1 day 

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? I am trying to hold out on telling to many people will Thanksgiving. That will put me just over 7 weeks which will put me past when I MC'ed. I'm not doing a very good job though. I have told a few people but not my parents. I have yet to call my provider, partly for the same reason and partly because she wanted us to wait three months and we only waited two. 

Do you feel like you will go early or late? Simon was right on time.. so I assume close again. 

How are you feeling physically? If I let myself get to hungry I get to feeling cruddy. Little stomach sour at times but otherwise not bad. 

How are you feeling emotionally? Scared... but doing my best not to worry. I'm being optimisitc but at the same time... worried. 

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Just waiting to make sure baby sticks. I will probably call towards the end of the month about getting an appointment. 

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? I figure blue right now. We will see.

Jules - I hear you, I like how you said the last part of pregnancy is rude, that's a perfect description of it. 

Cassie - Congrats again!! I hear you on waiting but know its hard. Hope you don't get MS too bad.

Name/SO Name:  Em & M.

How many weeks are you?  36

Any exciting dates/appointments this month?  Onto weekly appointments now

Do you feel like you will go early or late?  Not sure, probably a little late

How are you feeling physically?  Good other than a lingering cold.  Still pretty comfortable although I had to take off my wedding rings finally.

How are you feeling emotionally?  All over the place.  Excited, anxious, stressed that we're not organized, a little sad that DS won't be an only child for much longer.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month?  Set up the crib, move my dresser to her room, set up my new dresser and the bassiet in our room, install the car seat, pack a hospital bag.  I think that's all the big stuff.

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

  • Wow, I've been away for a while and the boards are so different.  And what's with the super-old ticker I have in my siggy "Baby N is 1", lol...yup, he's actually almost 3, but whatever.  I can 't believe we're at November and the baby boom is about to begin. 
  • Jessica and Jules, sorry you're feeling so rough.  I haven't quite hit that phase yet, but I know it's coming soon!

Cassie - congratulations!

I feel like I'm missing someone.  Sorry if I did!

As I said in my first post, we still have a ton to do.  But like someone else said, if she comes tomorrow we'd deal.  This is my last week of work so I'll have time to get stuff done soon.  I'm technically on vacation for the next 2 weeks and then my mat leave starts a week before she's due.  I'm hoping to get organized and then have a couple of days of down time before she gets here. 

So I started typing this post about 3 hours ago and then our power went out.  Now I can finally hit "post", lol.
