    s/c: some days he seems very heavy and everyday he seems very squished in there. i have had more discomfort from the ECP. my dizziness has gotten better but still hits sometimes.

    other: the baby shower is this weekend but the boys still dont have a room. We leave for vacation next week and are hoping to get everything finally set up when we get back. I am running out of time to get ready for little one and just pray that he doesn't decide to come before everything is ready.

    Nxt app: tues - 7/31, then it goes to every weeks once we return from vacation....

    Melinda and Baby Gavin


    Weight Gain: 24lbs

    Symptoms/ Conditions: Pressure now that little man turned head down yesterday. Contractions from time to time that are controlled with Procardia. EVIL EVIL EVIL Crotch pain. Exhausted at the thought of getting out of bed in the morning!

    Other: Had my doctor appointment today to check growth and position. Baby is finally back head down thank goodness! He is estimated at 6lb 2oz as of today. Doctor is estimating a 9lb baby which is fine by me. Everything is almost set up in the house which is a big relief. Sitting back and waiting is the hard part!

    Next Appointment: 7/30 and on a weekly bases!

    37 weeks 1 day

    W/g: 20lbs

    S/c: Braxton hicks almost every 30 minutes for the last 48 hours, and evil crotch pain form the baby dropping I am so ready to start trying to induce myself naturally ( please don't judge , I am been measuring almost 2 weeks ahead since the beginning so I figure I am close enough )

    Other: Made pickles on Saturday and then yesterday I helped my mum make most of my freezer meals so after the baby is born I will have 42 meals just sitting in the freezer for me so I don't have to cook.

    Next D/a: Tomorrow at 3pm and if I want to they will check to see if I am making progress yet

    w/g: 9 lbs

    s/c: RLP, fatigue, SOB, sore hips if I stay in one position for too long, peeing all the time, lots of baby movement

    Other: Have day care tours scheduled at 2 centers on Wednesday. We're going to put DS1 in day care 2 days/wk next month, and transition to full-time around the end of the year when I go back to work. Am a little freaked out by the whole thing, but it frees up my mom to watch the baby, which is nice.

    Next d/a: Routine OB this Weds morning @ 8:30
    Julie (28), DH (35)
