    Hello ladies! Please reply so we can see how each other is doing!

    wg - up around 18 pounds and now I have stopped looking lol.

    s/c - Crazy heartburn still but also having some upper rib pain and the bottoms of my feet hurt. Some minor swelling both nothing to bad yet. Mostly just starting to feel uncomfortable. Went to the doctor last week and everything is looking good. Only thing is my docotor is pregnant (i did not realize as she was hiding it under scrubs) and is going on maternity leave so she will miss my whole 3rd trimester and possibly my birth if she dosent come back on time or if I deliver early. I am bummed about this. I wish she would have told me in the beginning but not much I can do about it now.

    Hope all you ladies are doing well!

    w/g: 15 lbs

    s/c: Overall tired and sore. Sometimes my legs feel like they're tired of holding me up after I've been standing for a while, LOL. Hip pain at night, occasional heartburn, major bladder pressure (but no accidents!).

    Other: This little guy feels bigger than my first son, which has me nervous. Or maybe I just notice his movements more? Either way, I'm preparing myself for another 41-week pregnancy and another 8.5 lb baby!

    Next d/a: Thursday, the first of my weekly appts!!
