bossman's son's girlfriend's water just broke so we've got baby fever right now, which got me thinking that i need to catch up with some of you ladies! i'll start it!

Name:
How far along are you today?:
Baby's gender, name/s picked out:
Due Date/Scheduled Indcution/Scheduled C-Section:
Last item you bought or made for baby:
What's your current worst pregnancy symptom:
What's your SO/DH/etc feeling this days about baby?:
Are you planning a medicated or unmedicated birth?
At home, hospital, birthing facility?
Who is going to be in the room with you?
What are your absolute 'To-Do's before baby comes?
What are your 'nice-to-do's (that maybe don't have to be done before) that you want to have done:


Name: Rachel.
How far along are you today?: 32weeks, 2 days.
Baby's gender, name/s picked out: baby boy; Karson Curtis.
Due Date/Scheduled Indcution/Scheduled C-Section: due 6/10/14.
Last item you bought or made for baby: i bought white & blue muslin swaddles from target, but i have yarn just sitting waiting for me to crochet up a blanket and booties.
What's your current worst pregnancy symptom: besides the tatas? Karson has flipped downward, but is face out so his head is putting insane pressure on my spine.
What's your SO/DH/etc feeling this days about baby?: i had a lot of rectal pressure yesterday, and some back labor contractions the night before, so he's a little on edge thinking Karson is trying to make a break for it early.
Are you planning a medicated or unmedicated birth? medicated for sure. i have large babies and long labors.
At home, hospital, birthing facility? intending on laboring at home as long as i can, then trecking to the hospital.
Who is going to be in the room with you? just DH.
What are your absolute 'To-Do's before baby comes? i still have to wash the baby clothes, buy a diaper bag and pack it, pack me a hospital bag, pull out and clean up the bassinet, reorganize my yarn stash, buy a stroller. i'm sure a few other things in there too.
What are your 'nice-to-do's (that maybe don't have to be done before) that you want to have done: i'd really like to have the carpets shampooed, have to get crib bedding (not a rush because Karson will be in a bassinet for a few months), get some pre-cooked meals done, stock up on my coming-home essentials (witch hazel pads, etc).

What's your current worst pregnancy symptom: back pain on left side (strained rib from coughing too much with baby weight pulling on ribcage)

Are you planning a medicated or unmedicated birth? as unmedicated as possible...but only time will tell.
At home, hospital, birthing facility? Hospital - but only b/c there are no birthing centres near me in Ontario - two are currently being built, one in Toronto and one just outside of Ottawa I believe...but both are too far and not likely to be ready by my Due Date

How far along are you today?: 31w 1d
Baby's gender, name/s picked out: Boy, James Michael
Due Date/Scheduled Indcution/Scheduled C-Section: EDD 6/18
Last item you bought or made for baby: clothes?
What's your current worst pregnancy symptom: Oh, the pressure down there. I'm uncomfortable between round ligament pain, contractions, and the constant pressure
What's your SO/DH/etc feeling this days about baby?: He's so excited! At night he sits next to me with his hand on my belly. If baby isn't moving, he nudges him until he wakes up. It's so sweet.
Are you planning a medicated or unmedicated birth? I'm open to an epidural. I've never done this before, so I'm not ruling anything out.
At home, hospital, birthing facility? Birth center attached to hospital
Who is going to be in the room with you? Just DH
What are your absolute 'To-Do's before baby comes? I try not to think about it since I won't be able to really tackle things until 36-37 weeks, but still lots to do! We do need to get the car seat installed though! I'm not sure my new car will arrive in time for baby's arrival, so it's going in DH's car, like it or not!
What are your 'nice-to-do's (that maybe don't have to be done before) that you want to have done: I'd like to get a few meals prepared and put in the freezer, but I'm not overly worried about it. DH has learned to fend for himself between my MS and bed rest, so we will make do. Plus, we will have plenty of people around to help us out and cook.

How far along are you today?: 32 weeks 3 days
Baby's gender, name/s picked out: Don't know. Names are a point of stress at the moment.
Due Date/Scheduled Indcution/Scheduled C-Section: EDD June 10th
Last item you bought or made for baby: Just bought some hemp inserts to replace my microfiber inserts for Sprog's pocket diapers.
What's your current worst pregnancy symptom: Feeling pretty good right now. Just gettin' large
What's your SO/DH/etc feeling this days about baby?: He's in denial about how soon this baby will be here. Otherwise, he's good.
Are you planning a medicated or unmedicated birth? Unmedicated
At home, hospital, birthing facility? Stand-alone birth center
Who is going to be in the room with you? DH, DD, my BFF, the photographer, the MW, and a nurse. Quite the menagerie if I may say so. BFF is a necessity to watch DD and I really want this birth well documented since its my last and I hardly have any good pics from DD's birth.
What are your absolute 'To-Do's before baby comes? I'm pretty much ready. Just need to attach the crib side-carred and even that could wait.
What are your 'nice-to-do's (that maybe don't have to be done before) that you want to have done: I cleaned out the freezer today so that I can start a stash of freezer meals. My plan is to make double batches of a few meals each week over the next few weeks so we won't have to worry about cooking for the first few weeks. I'd also like to reorganize DDs toys a bit and make room for some of her old infant toys. But since the baby won't be needing those for a few months I'm not too concerned.
