Hey y'all! I'm combining these threads this month because I'm submitting us for the top 50 again for March, and I noticed that not all the preggers signed into the roll call as well.

I hope you are all doing well!

Kids ages and names? Due with my first, a son, in 5 weeks!
What's been up this past month? Not a whole lot, continued bed rest but only for 2 more weeks!!
What are you looking forward to in March? Baby shower on the 10!! I can't wait
Any plans for Saint Patrick's Day? Nope

Preggers Check in:

EDD: 4/6
Team Blue/Pink/Green: Blue!
Planning to birth at home, hospital, or birth center: home birth
How are you feeling? Really good. Lots of rib pain and my skin is on fire but I'm so happy to still be pregnant after all the scares this little boy has caused. Bet after all that he won't come out!
Anything exciting or that concerns you lately? I'm concerned I won't realize early labor and my midwife won't make it in time. She thinks I'm going to go really quick based on how low baby is already and being dilated. I'm starting to get a little scared when I think about labor pains..

What's your name? Veann
Where are you from? Buffalo, New York area
Kids ages and names? Lucius, 4 and Orion, 22 months
What's been up this past month? Lucius' birthday was in February. Other than that, I've just been waiting on a new baby.
What are you looking forward to in March? Any plans for Saint Patrick's Day? I will be having our third and last baby this month. No plans for Saint Patrick's Day, though I will drink if I am not pregnant by then.


Preggers Check in:

EDD: February 21, 2013
Team Blue/Pink/Green: Green
Baby name if known: Not chosen and wouldn't share until birth
Planning to birth at home, hospital, or birth center: Home
How are you feeling? I'm feeling heavy, crampy, sore, beautiful, and stressed. I don't mind the going "past due" except for how antsy and pushy the midwives become, which robs me of the serenity I feel. I am confident that the baby is ok and there is nothing wrong.
Anything exciting or that concerns you lately? I am concerned that my midwife will drop me because she wants me to have bi-weekly post-dates testing and I am only able to go once per week, and grudgingly at that. We've already paid her, so that would be extra stress to get our money back if she dropped us. Also, my husband is not comfortable with going unassisted, but I cannot accept going to a hospital unless absolute dire life-and-death need arises.
Any belly pics to share?!

You look wonderful PP!

I don't know how to quote the questions, so I'll just answer some, hehe.

We have 9 kids, DD 12, DD 11, DS 7, DD 6, DS 5, DS 4, DS 3, DD 2, DS 17 months, and we are due May 4ish with number 10. I have went anywhere from 38 weeks-42 weeks........but this would be our 4th baby in the beginning of May .

They said a girl, but not real confidently, so we are planning either way. We don't pick names until after birth, so she's nameless so far. I'm 31 weeks and outside of a little fatigue, pretty good. Took a walk in the snow and played with kids in it this afternoon.

We birth in a hospital but have had great experiences. Mostly, because we don't do interventions and show up when it's time to push

What's your name?Kaite
Where are you from?St. Louis, MO
Kids ages and names?Madeline 3, Cooper Michael due 3/9
What's been up this past month? DH was finally offered the job he's been doing as a temp. He gets immediate(awesome) insurance, 3 weeks vacation, and is making 20,000 more than his last job. Its such a relief, and now I don't have to go back to work!!
What are you looking forward to in March? Any plans for Saint Patrick's Day?
Having this little guy! He will be here this month no matter what!! I've got one week of work left and 2 parties to go to on my due date, so at least I will busy if I'm not in labor!

Preggers Check in:

EDD:3/9
Team Blue/Pink/Green:Blue
Baby name if known:Cooper Michael
Planning to birth at home, hospital, or birth center:home
How are you feeling?I have good times and bad...for 39 weeks, I think I'm doing alright. My pubic bone feels like someone punched it, which in turn makes it hard to walk, but other than that I'm ok. I'm ready to have him, but I know it could easily be at least 2 more weeks.
Anything exciting or that concerns you lately? I'm getting a little nervous about labor. I'm also concerned about DH's insurance going into effect before we have him. He's still doing the paperwork and of course no one else seems in a rush to get it through.
Any belly pics to share?!Ohhh....I'm way too tired to get off the couch!

What's been up this past month? My sweet baby turned one!
What are you looking forward to in March? We are flying to VA to visit family from the 14th-28th. I am really excited because we haven't seen most of our family since October but I'm worried about flying with Claire now that she's so active.
Any plans for Saint Patrick's Day? I totally forgot that St. Patrick's day was this month until I saw it here lol. So no, no special plans. I kept thinking Easter was the next holiday since it falls in March this year.

--My name is Jennifer.
--Live in Oregon
--Kids are named alphabetically. So far we have A, B, C, & D. Expecting Baby E any time now. Ages range from 8 years on down.
--This past month we've been homeschooling, hanging out with friends, and waiting for baby E.
--Looking forward to the baby being born.
--No plans for St. Patty's Day...though hubby might wear his kilt...



Preggers Check in:

--I prefer to share my due "window" rather than a due "date". My kids are never born anywhere near the estimated "date". So, our due "window" is sometime in March.
--Team Green. We purposely want the gender to be a surprise. I feel it gives me something more to look forward to while in labor.
--Going alphabetically so this baby is Baby E for now.
--Home birth!
--I am at the point where I am sooooo ready to have this baby out. I'm ready to be done with this pregnancy!
--Ah, the thought of childbirth pain niggles at the back of my mind and sometimes concerns me. But I've done this 4x before so I just keep reminding myself that I CAN do it!

What are you looking forward to in March? Any plans for Saint Patrick's Day? Nothing really important happening in March. I never even notice St. Pattys day exists. Lol. We hope to get outside more this month, since it should start to get more temperate around here.

Baby name if known: Josephine AnnaLee
Planning to birth at home, hospital, or birth center: Hospital
How are you feeling? Not bad physically. I am carrying very small, so nothing rewlly uncomfortable has hit yet. But I am so anxious this pregnancy and I can't quite figure out why. I just feel so nervous about her being healthy and safe in there. It's a lot worse than my last pregnancy. I wish I could stop worrying about it.
Anything exciting or that concerns you lately? Not much. We saw baby on Friday and she looked great. Fluids were good, blood flow was good (checked because of the blood thinners I have to take), baby was measuring in the 33rd percentile for age, so a healthy size. She also was putting on a show of moving her arms and staring at the probe. So I enjoyed seeing her again.
Any belly pics to share?! Haha, I did take one last week, but I'll have to upload it when I am on a real computer. It's still not that impressive, but it at least is starting to look pregnant to me.

America

Kids ages and names?
Age 7, 6, and almost 5.

What's been up this past month?
Everything! I'm so overwhelmed. I am about half through this pregnancy (for me--I have always gone at 36 weeks on average) and feel like I'm not half done preparing for baby. We're behind on homeschooling. Well, technically my daughter is ahead, but not because of how things have been recently! And she has all these team practices for gymnastics and competitions. I'm behind on my writing to get my second book out. Have a ton of stuff I need to ship and the packages aren't ready. Just behind in every way.

What are you looking forward to in March? Any plans for Saint Patrick's Day?
Getting my advance! Which I SHOULD get in March but who knows.

Preggers Check in:

Planning to birth at home, hospital, or birth center:
home or birth center. Haven't decided. Our birth center allows both.

How are you feeling?
Sick Overwhelmed

Anything exciting or that concerns you lately?
Get some concerning cramps sometimes, but try not to read into it and drink more fluids, which seems to help.
