    I hope to God this is my last update post

    Jodi and Baby Girl


    w/g: Lots

    s/c: Swollen feet and a real lack of patience for this little girl to make her debut

    other: Had my 40 week appointment on Friday. Still no more progress and no signs of anything to come. On a positive note, my new doctors are great and are still optimistic that I have a chance at a vbac and haven't asked me to schedule a c-section yet.

    Next d/a: 5/23 for NST and u/s to check fluid, then meet with my doctor and discuss my options.

    w/g: 20#

    s/c: I have been having a lot of problems with my hips, but after a month of physical therapy and propping myself with more pillows at night it is doing much better! My heartburn is in full force, but I am still able to manage it with Tums and Pepcid.

    other: I was finally able to set up a registry last week and it was fun to pick out all things pink.

    Next d/a: June 6

    Saundra and Baby Girl Natalie Rose


    w/g: about 12lbs

    s/c: Very sore 'down there'...she likes to push an hit my bladder all day, so I am constantly going to the restroom in fear of having an accident.

    other: Get light headed at home more often now. Very tired ( I have a 9 1/2 month old son at home to take care of after working all day ). Just had my baby shower and we are all ready for my daughers arrival! All-n-all, I feel good. Just ready to hold my baby girl!

    Rebekah and Baby Boy

    35w (today)

    w/g: 20

    s/c: heartburn everyday after lunch and dinner. It's getting a bit old. I am starting to feel huge.

    other: finally started thinking about getting the room ready. We seem to be procrastinating this time around. Its not the "first baby" feeling where you have to have everything ready 3 months in advance. Haha. And I don't have my shower until next weekend so I'm waiting for a bunch of it anyways. Lets just hope this little man doesn't make too early of an appearance!

    next d/a: Friday 6/1. GBST and an exam if I want it. Then every friday until the end...
