    38w 6d

    s/c: not much she's just not showing any signs of wanting to join us here (don't blame her it's cold out here). She still hasn't dropped. I only get minimal cramping and then only when I walk or am on my feet for long periods of time. I have a feeling we are going past the 40 week mark

    joys: DH started his new job today, yeah life is starting to get back on track

    Pam and baby N

    17w 6d

    s/c: All good on the pregnancy front...this cold finally is showing signs of abating and my rib / muscle pain is ever so slightly better. Happy to be feeling human again.

    other: Not much. Wanted to get more done this weekend, but it was tough feeling so cruddy. Got lots of sleep though. I can't believe it's November!

    w/g: 8 lbs - more than I'd like, but certainly not horrific. Especially considering my cold / flu / bronchitis has had me basically immobile for the last three weeks.

    d/a: Wednesday is the big anatomy scan!

    w/g: I lost a bunch of weight in Hawaii b/c of all the walking we did, so I'm now down 10 lbs from pre-pg weight. Heck yes!!! I'm overweight to begin with so I'm only supposed to gain 20 lbs MAX... I'll take all the help I can get losing it now b/c I feel like I won't be able to stop the gain in the 3rd tri

    s/c: Felt baby move for the first time while in Hawaii! Must be that baby knew they were in their "home" state :) Feeling little "blurby" feelings now daily that I recognize as baby

    Other: Had a GREAT time in Hawaii, but a week is perfect. I'm definitely not ready to pick up and move there, no matter what DF says

    Next d/a: An ultrasound on Thursday!! Still hoping we'll be able to tell baby's sex!

    w/g: not sure honestly.. Forgot to check the scale at home this morning.. i was down as of my last Doc Apt cause of how sick i was.. and like julie i'm already overweight and know 3rd tri will be a killer so i'm not worried about losing anything.. as long as my baby is healthy :) Hubby says my face looks thinner too.. and my MIL said she looked like sickly durnig her PG with my SIL.. she was already skinny and was just all belly cause she didn't gain any weight caus she was so sick.. i gained 80 pounds with DS and I can't.. CAN"T do that this time!!! sigh..

    s/c: I do feel the baby Flipping around no "kicks" unless there is a doppler there for it to kick against. But definilty have the fllutters and things too i know is the baby.. I guess its easier the second time around to feel this :) but i Love it and can't wait till its more visible or for DH/DS to feel/see it :) I'm still experiencing some nausea but able to hold down my food thank goodness.. Still dealing with Extreme constipation and all the issues that come from that plue Massive Heartburn!! AMEN for tums! : LOLOL I should take stock out in them! DH say's i'm more snippy with him probably am and don't mean it :( so guess ineed to be more cautious..

    36 weeks

    w/g: 32 weeks before all of the halloween candy entered the house!!!

    s/c: Well, it's baby #3 and I'm finally feeling BHC's! Something I never felt with #1 and felt, but didn't realize that's what it was with #2. Maybe some occasional real contractions, but nothing that's made me raise an eyebrow!

    Other: Realizing that we have done almost nothing to prepare. We have everything we need, but it's still in the attic! We did get a minivan last week though, so at least he'll have a way to get home! :)

    next d/a: tomorrow!

    Sarah and Gabriel


    w/g: about 20 I think, I'll find out tomorrow at the dr

    s/c: Ugh... I am so ready to get this baby out of me!!!! He dropped about a week ago so I have major pressure down below. I can't get comfortable no matter what I do- sit, stand, lay down. Sleep is a thing of the past I guess. Between not being able to get comfortable and having to pee almost constantly, sleeping is just impossible. I really only sleep after I get so exhausted that I just pass out. My back and hips are so achy, and I've had some sciatic nerve fun in my legs- which is new since the dropping. Good news though- dropping has provided the ability to breathe, eat more, and has really helped my heartburn to not be so severe.

    thankful: For DH!!! He has been so helpful around the house, tells me how beautiful I am (even though I think he's crazy!), and thanks me everyday for going through all this. I can't wait to see him be a Daddy! He's going to be the BEST!

    next d/a: tomorrow, my first exam! Say a prayer that there's progress down there!!
    Sarah (25) and DH (27) We lost our first little one in Jan 2010 at 7w, but were blessed by a BFP after just one cycle. EDD 11/28/10!!! We're on the BLUE team! Praying each day for a PAL grad.

    Lindsey & Skelator!

    40 WEEKS!!!!!!

    w/g - 17-18lbs

    Sorry that I've been mia for a while - i've been trying to following along with everyone - my computer at home really doesn't like webmd and I have a hard time staying logged in...ugh.

    WE INDUCE TOMORROW! I went in early last week for contractions - which turns out they were BH or being caused by too much pressure on the ole bladder. Is that what the whole ECP thing is because if it is, then it IS evil! Anyway, have been dilated 1cm for a few weeks now and NO progress. None. Dr. says little Skelator is not going to be so little and weighed in at atleast 8lbs last week. YIKES! So excited for tomorrow - can't wait to finally meet this little guy or gal!

    Next D/A - TOMORROW! Getting induced at 7:30cst!
    Me 31, DH 36 - MC's 3/4/9, 4/6/9 and 10/26/9 at 12w2d. BFP 2/18!!! Stick little one stick - Due 11/1/10

    w/g: 10lbs, down 3 since I've been watching what I eat more closely since the elevated 1hr glucose test. I go for the 3 hr tomorrow.

    s/c: beginning to have leg cramps, but nothing too bothersome. My bp was up at my appt today, 139 over something. OB wasn't too concerned but I have to monitor it every day now.

    I am feeling rested for the most part, the frequent bathroom trips in the middle of the night are getting old, but nothing I can't handle.

    Today's dr appt was awesome. She is measuring in the 60th percentile, 3.4 lbs and has lots of hair(like momma) and long legs(like her daddy). Today it felt like she was real and this is going to happen. 10 weeks to go or less is what the OB said. :)

    Next dr appt: next Monday. I get to go once a week now. In week 32 or 33 it will be twice a week. They are doing a fetal non-stress test for every appt. :)
    Me (41) DH(48) I will be induced sometime the 1st week of January 2011 We're on the Pink Team! M/C 6/08(unknown) M/C 8/09(trisomy 15)

    Anywho, here goes:

    Susan and Gabriel:

    20 wks 6 days

    w/g: 14 lbs!

    s/c: not much pregnancy related, though my fibromyalgia has decided to flare up again :( Oh, and I'm irritable and short tempered most of the time. I don't remember feeling this way with my girls, so I'm blaming it on the fact that I'm having a boy this time around :D

    I'm so grateful for everything these days. My husband is over the moon about having a boy and has really been taking more of an interest in this pregnancy since day one, which is so awesome to me.

    I found out at my appointment today that my Dr. doesn't want me flying past 28 weeks, so I will spend the next few weeks in a fight with the Army about my husband's orders. Wish me luck!

    next D/A: November 29th, 9 am, @ 24 wks 6 days

    And i'm thiking Ahh we have till April.. LOL but you know that will be here before we know it! LOLOL

    Perhaps we are more relaxed with 2nd and consecutive babies.. I remember with DS we were like prepared by the 6th month and still FELT unprepared when 9th month came around and then after the baby was born, realizing things we forgot...
