I know we have several mamas due here in the next month or so, and quite a few who have just had babies! How are you all doing?? I'd love to see some final belly pics and pics of those new squishy babies!

I'm not due until December, but I've had tons of spotting this pregnancy. I've had two ultrasounds showing me a heart beat, and yesterday's ultrasound the tech told me I had quite a few little blood clots in between baby and my cervix and that I should expect spotting throughout my pregnancy, but it's still stressful

Other than that, not a whole lot to report..I'm only 7 weeks

Oh man, that would be stressful! Are you having any cramping or discomfort? I hope not!

I'm due in about a month. I met my delivery doctor this past week and although I couldn't get a midwife for this pregnancy, she is as close to a midwife as I could possibly hope for!! I am really excited how pro-natural birth she is and how willing she is to do whatever I want.

I'm 38 weeks and feeling pretty good . My babes have come anywhere from 38-42 weeks....so you just never know. I'm expecting another week or two. The BH are starting to pick up. Today we are getting out clothes and I should start packing a bag for the hospital, but it's usually when I'm in early labor that I do that. I'm such a planner it surprises me that I wait that long to pack

23.5 weeks and doing good! I'm starting to have occasional BH, which are annoying, but not a big deal. Not much new to report.

Not much to talk about here. I am guessing I have about 2.5 weeks, based on previous babies...and what the midwives say. Although I am not putting all my eggs in that basket I have some BHs this time around, which I hope will mean a slightly shorter labor! My others I never had any and they were/would have been long labors. Baby looks good, passing NSTs with flying colors, measuring right on track. I am hoping I am GBS neg at my appt this week. It's my last "hurdle" before the thoughts of induction (blah). BUT, baby is NOT permitted to come before April 30th (I doubt she would), my folks are in Hawaii and I already feel badly that my mom will be worrying about her coming the whole time. She doesn't want to miss it (and I need her there!) So I hope we aren't looking at a similar gestation as my older boy (36w). We can do the 37w one of my younger son though

I didn't realize so many babies were so close to making their arrivals How exciting!

I'm not one of those due soon; not until July, though who knows when baby will decide to come. Here's a belly snap from today though. If only it was all baby! Or even mostly baby :/

Just entered the second trimester and thank goodness I'm getting my energy back. Man that first trimester drains you!!!! It literally is like a light switch and bam I'm starting to feel normal again other than the occasional nausea/dizziness. I am getting my headaches again. I usually take Topamax for migraines when not pregnant or nursing but I can't right now. I had bad headaches last pregnancy and knew that they would come back. Other than that nothing new. We find out the sex early May!

I have 18 days left...but whos counting? I was put on modified bedrest last week for BP issues but it has since been stable thankfully. I was checked last week and was 2-3 cm dilated. Had to have an US to make sure baby was ok bc of my BP hiccup and I have tons of fluid and baby measured 7 lbs. Sooo im just anxiously waiting for him to come now.

I'm 25 weeks (or whatever my ticker says). Pregnancy is flying by! My kids have come at 36, 35, and 37 weeks, hoping to make it 38 weeks this time. I am SO not prepared yet, though.
