    w/g: 24 lbs

    s/c: Increased lower backpain and pressure to the point I can barely walk anymore. Contractions started kicking in yesterday and I was up for three hours last night with them. They never got worse and were gone by 4 am though. Had my GD appointment today and my doc finally put my on glyburide for my fasting levels. I now have twice weekly NST's.

    Other: Nursery is 80% complete! Crib and dresser are together and I hung the wall letters up this weekend! Starting to look cute!

    Julie & Little Dude


    w/g: 15-16 lbs

    s/c: RLP, SOB, BHC, near-constant bladder pressure, still seeing bits & pieces of the plug but nothing pink or bloody yet. His movements have calmed down a little except for right after meals.

    Other: I just can't shake this head cold! Feels like a sinus infection, really, and it settles into my chest at night so each morning I cough stuff out. So gross.

    Next d/a: Thursday afternoon for my weekly checkup

    Beckie and Blue Team

    36 weeks

    w/g: 8 lbs

    s/c: Had contractions all night last night so I didn't get much sleep. Baby is sitting on a ligament causing sharp pain in my abdomen. I'm 3 cm dialated and 70 % effaced. My doctor thinks i'll have my baby pretty soon. I sure hope so.

    Other: Still don't have a name picked out and getting worried that my little boy won't have one. My boyfriend and I decided on the name Gavin but one of my SIL's is upset because it's close to her sons name Kaven. And the two will only be a year apart. She needs to realize that it's my child and I can name him as I please and that i'm not naming him Gavin because of her son or after anyone else.

    Next d/a:
    9/27 NST
    10/1 OB & NST if I don't have my baby before then.

    40w 2d (as of today)

    w/g: 14 lbs

    s/c: Too many to list. LOL. I am now overdue and ready to meet this little girl. I don't sleep for more than 30 mins at a time because I have to pee and now I have to deal with pregnancy induced hemorroids. (Sorry, TMI.) I am miserable, but glad she is still healthy. Also, bummed that at my appt on Tues I was only 1 cm and 50%. She's still so high up they didn't even give her a station. It's going to be a long week!!

    Other: Not looking forward to leaving DS while I'm in the hospital. I know he will have a blast with Gram-Gram and Poppy, but I'm a wreck just thinking about it.

    Next d/a: Check into hospital 9-30 at 5pm to prepare for induction on October 1st.

    Good luck to everyone. Hope you are getting better news than me.
