s/c: Feeling OK this last week. Some back soreness/stiffness, esp in the mornings. Lots of movement; I love watching him roll around in there! Tired, but what else is new?
Other: Decided against turning the 3rd bedroom into a nursery for now. Reorganizing it and making it a better office instead. Baby will be in our room to start, anyway, and we need the office space. Feeling much more relaxed about the whole thing.
Next d/a: 8/13, routine OB

Well I haven't been posting in so long! It has been a really busy summer. But since the end is near for me I should give an update!!
Hannah and Baby Boy 37w4d
w/g - I don't care anymore
symptoms - Just plain uncomfortable, and hot! Sometimes have nausea if I haven't snacked. Swelling has definately been an issue, but seems to go down if I elevate my feet. Gone are the days of being able to wear my wedding ring. I have sausage fingers now! Exhaustion is what is getting to me these days. I feel tired all day long! Definately don't feel bad taking naps anymore.
Other - Baby has been measuring and weighing very large. I have another ultrasound on Wednesday to check his weight. A month ago he was coming in at six pounds! EEK!! And my belly has not stopped growing. Tummy has gone from basketball to beach ball! Doctor thinks he will be between 9 and 10 pounds. As of last week I was dilated to 2 cm, his head was at -2 station, and my cervix is really soft. Hoping by Wednesday to have some more progress. But not too much progress as my Husband won't be back till next week! He has been working away for almost six unbearable weeks and comes home next week. I am so excited for him to be home I can hardly stand it!!
I hope you ladies are all doing well and enjoying your summers
s/c - m/s still. I'm so over it by now. Some heartburn. Lots of movement which makes me happy. I finally have a little bump! Although I still don't look almost 20 weeks, lol.
other - I currently have bronchitis. I could really use a break. I'm so exhausted and not feeling well, plus DH's schedule is HORRIBLE right now so over half the week I'm a "single mom" to my other 3. We decided to go to visit family in California just for a change of pace (and hopefully some help!) so we're leaving Thursday for 3 weeks! Now I just have to get up the energy to get us all packed...
s/c- achy hips and legs. Gotta drink more milk as doctor is pretty sure baby is stealing calcium from me. Went to the doctor on Monday and baby's heartbeat was superimposed with mine so I ended up having a quick ultrasound to track babys heart. Baby's heart rate was 146 and baby was quite active .Tried to find out sex of baby but baby was sitting on its bum not allowing anything to be shown. Feeling baby move quite a bit lately, hubby was actually able to feel it when he was "playing" with baby so that was pretty exciting. Get to go for 20 week ultrasound on the 14th. Hopefully baby will cooperate and we will be able to find out what he or she is .
other- not much else going on. Kids are getting excited to see baby on the 14th and pretty much just trying to keep them involved.
