How far along are you?

How are you feeling?

When is your next appointment?

As you get further along in your pregnancy, are you becoming more anxious?

How prepared are you?

Anything else?



I know we have some mamas who are close! Jackie and Kim I believe are our closest to having their babies.

Let us know how you're doing!

How far along are you?
38wks 5 days

How are you feeling?
Absolutely dreadful - I have a bad tooth infection that is rather painful and I cannot stay awake. My sleep schedule is getting all screwed up and so is Kaileys. I have NO energy.

When is your next appointment?
Today. I'm 1-2cm and 50% effaced.

As you get further along in your pregnancy, are you becoming more anxious?
I'm more irritated. I thought we were supposed to go sooner with our subsequent pregnancies.

How prepared are you?
Completely, now the kid just needs to get out.

Anything else?
Not that I can think of.

I went later with my subsequent pregnancy. I had my first at 40 weeks 5 days, I went into labor at 40 weeks and 3 days. My 2nd was born at 41 weeks exactly.

I hope Nola gives you a break and comes sooner rather then later! She just wants to bake to perfection for you

How far along are you? 13 weeks today!

How are you feeling? Great. Getting some evening energy back and still haven't had any morning sickness at all.

When is your next appointment? 4 weeks because I just had one this morning.

As you get further along in your pregnancy, are you becoming more anxious? Not more anxious for the birth. I do get a little 'anxious' about being 8 months pregnant in August but am feeling calm about the birth.

How prepared are you? Not very. I've got a long time to go.

Anything else? I heard the heart beat today and finally feel like I'm truly pregnant. It was only for a few seconds but soo cool!!

The world today is upside down because there is so very little love in the home, and in family life. We have no time for each other. Everybody is in such a terrible rush, and so anxious…and in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world.

How far along are you? Over 25 weeks.

How are you feeling? Great, but exhausted. EVERYTHING tires me out.

When is your next appointment?
First Thursday in April

As you get further along in your pregnancy, are you becoming more anxious? Nah.

How prepared are you? I dunno. I'm not ordering my birth kit until like 34 weeks and my Bradley class starts in the first two weeks of April. So not very, yet.

How far along are you? 16w4d

How are you feeling? Having some round ligament pain which freaked me out yesterday because I had only come off bedrest a week and a half before that for pulling the same ligament while we were moving. Otherwise, I feel so good I sometimes forget I'm even pregnant.

When is your next appointment? In 2 weeks

As you get further along in your pregnancy, are you becoming more anxious? A little. Only because this is our last pregnancy but our first homebirth (we have 4 girls)

How prepared are you? Are you kidding?! LOL I haven't gotten anything yet for the birth, but I do still have some time.

Anything else? Just waiting for my 20w u/s so we can find out what this bean is (havent decided if we're telling others or not)

How far along are you? 12wks, 3days

How are you feeling? Tired, hungry (seriously, hand over the food and no one gets hurt) and a little overwhelmed. We had to find a place to move and now everything is in boxes waiting to be moved to the house we found which we still don't have the keys too but should have today or tomorrow then we have to call the movers cause DH has to work and I can't move anything all knocked up....ugh. At least everything is ready to go.

When is your next appointment? May 7th

As you get further along in your pregnancy, are you becoming more anxious? More excitied then anxious right now. I can't wait to find out the gender and start buying stuff (we wait) and feeling the babies move and all that fun stuff.

How prepared are you? Eh, haven't really started preparing yet. So far I know which room will belong to the new babies...once we move in.

Anything else? I just wanna move into the new house!!!! It's awesome and gorgeous and amazing. It's 5 bedrooms, four baths (more then we planned for but pleanty of room to grow into), only 15 minutes from where we live now, and totally in our price range. The babies' room and Rain's room connect by a jack and jill style bathroom which will be nice when they get older. And the kitchen is amazing, I never dreamed we'd be able to afford a place like this, we are so lucky and blessed. I'm just so excited to move into our new house!

How far along are you? 9 weeks

How are you feeling? Great, I have had absolutely no pregnancy symptoms (didn't have many with my last pregnancy either)

When is your next appointment? May 20th will be my first pre-natal appt. with the midwives

As you get further along in your pregnancy, are you becoming more anxious? I'll just be glad to hear the heartbeat for the first time so I can feel like this is real.

Anything else? Nope
