How are you feeling? Pretty icky, got the first trimester blahs... Just the general tiredness, nausea and some headaches. But I'm happy to have symptoms!!

How far along are you? 4 weeks and some change, LOL, so early!!

Any baby updates? none at all. I'll probably have a scan done at 7 weeks... after my ectopic in May, I'm sorta anxious to know everything is ok.

How is the preparation coming or not coming along? no preps being done, we have a long time.. I did however call my midwives and book them for June! LOL

Doing pretty good. Baby is moving, but not really uncomfortable yet.

How far along are you?
28 wks as of yesterday!

Any baby updates?
Nope. She's just growing!

How is the preparation coming or not coming along?
She has clothes, though I still need to order some prefolds for her, and I may splurge on some new covers. Cleaning and purging, so I don't have to do everything last minute. Hoping when I get the bedroom rearranged that the tub will fit! Only other thing is that I need a bassinet, but I haven't been able to motivate myself to go yardsaling yet.

How are you feeling? Feeling rather large although all my weight is in my belly. Having some low back crampiness...and some random nausea lasting 5 minutes then disappears. I am not dilated or effaced tho as of yesterday..just soft with a very far back cervix.

How far along are you? 39 weeks 2 days

Any baby updates? He's in good position and is running out of room!

How is the preparation coming or not coming along? All of the babies things are done and ready to go....as are the birthing supplies. My house on the other hand can't seem to get cleaned all the way. I start, do a little, get tired and crampy and have to sit. Gotta get it finished tomorrow tho as I could technically go anytime.

Hi. New here...

For our pregnant mamas:

How are you feeling?
Good. Happy. A little tired most days, but no major issues or complaints.
How far along are you?
28 weeks
Any baby updates?
We're having a boy and all is well so far. Have an appt with the midwife today. He's a very active baby and I'm just enjoying feeling him squirm around in there.
How is the preparation coming or not coming along?
Haven't prepared much yet (besides having tons of clothes for him). My shower isn't until Nov, so I'll wait for that before I buy most things.

This will be our first baby and we're hoping to have a homebirth.

For our pregnant mamas:

How are you feeling? I'm feeling pretty good. Starting to have more back discomfort if I stand for long periods of time. I've also had alot of insomnia, which sucks.

How far along are you? 20 weeks!

Any baby updates? I've been feeling tons of movement lately, which is nice. I had a midwife appointment yesterday and measuring a little large, but no big deal. My ultrasound is scheduled for next friday, 10/9. Totally excited about that.

How is the preparation coming or not coming along? LOL. What preparation? I've been re-reading some books, but otherwise, I just can't make myself do anything else yet. I'm sure the nesting will come sooner or later.

Dare I step out of lurkdom? I guess, lol! I don't know if anyone remembers me - I'm Stephanie, I'm a UCer, my DD's birth story is up in the unassisted subforum I haven't been around since the boards were hacked however long ago, but I'm back and pregnant again after a loss last December.

How are you feeling? Tired and nauseous.

How far along are you? 8 weeks and some days.

Any baby updates? Nothing interesting going on yet.

How is the preparation coming or not coming along? I'm just getting started; rereading midwifery texts, trying to track down some new book, telling myself affirmations and belief suggestions that I trust my body (a big thing to tackle after a loss), and going over my old supply lists. Oh and I've started knitting sleep sacks and spinning yarn to knit diaper covers. I think I'm off to a good start
