    Korin and Khloe Madison!


    w/g: 23 lbs

    s/c: Still got the ECP going on. But my herniated disc is by far the worst atm. Had a kidney stone Tlast week so I was in the ER all night. Still have not passed it...too big...So I am hoping it breaks itself up or else I will have to wait to get it blasted after I deliver. As long as it doesn't move it doesn't bother me.

    Other: Had my GD appointment today. I was against taking the class since I did my prior two pregnancies but WOW this class was much better. I got some outstanding information about my diet and hopefully with these minor tweaks I won't be put on meds! Working on the nursery this week!

    Julie & Little Dude


    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!). Lots of baby movement; I can just sit and watch him move around now and it's a trip!

    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!!

    Christina and Yellow Team Baby!


    W/G: 10 lbs? I lose track.

    S/C: besides a growing belly? BHC, easily out of breath and heartburn! Hard to believe baby still has around 8 weeks to grow! Starting to nest, I'm afraid, which will just bring on more BHC but my house will be all shiny!

    Other: Spent a day last week searching for options to our in-town hospital and whopping 2 local providers...turns out there are 8 licensed midwives in our state...yes, I meant to type 8...however I keep getting great reviews for the doctor I'm seeing so I'm sure everything will be great!

    N/A: 9/11 OB / size and position u/s

    Beckie and Blue Team (thinking of naming my little guy Jaxon Mark, but won't know for sure until after he's born)

    34 weeks

    w/g: 3 lbs

    s/c: Having more painful contractions but they aren't regular. My hips pop when I do too much walking which becomes pretty painful at times, Heartburn and acid reflux is killing me. My chest and throat feels like it's on fire. Swelling in my feet and legs.

    Other: Non-stress tests show that my baby is doing very well and is getting plenty of oxygen and has plenty of fluid. Doctor says that according to all the tests that if my baby were to be born today all would be well and he'd do just fine.

    9/17 Non-stress test, ultrasound, ob-gyn
