How far along are you?

How are you feeling?

Are you prepared with everything if you're farther along?

Are you starting to get a mental list if you're not that far along?

Have you had an appointment this week? How did it go?

Any belly photos?

Anything else?

How far along are you?
I am 22w2d.

How are you feeling?
Really good! I still need my occasional nap but not nearly as bad as 1st tri!

Are you prepared with everything if you're farther along?
Well we have most everything we need since this is #3. There are just some "wants" that I want! And we need little girl clothes since our DD is older and I got rid of all her clothes.

Are you starting to get a mental list if you're not that far along?
I have a list on Amazon of things I want! My mind isn't capable of holding a thought longer than 10 seconds! lol

Have you had an appointment this week? How did it go?
Nope! I meet with a midwife on Jan. 27th and then potentially my last OB appt. on Feb. 11th.

Any belly photos?
I believe this was at 21 weeks.


Anything else?
Not that I can think of! Just waiting on my midwife meet and greet to make my final decision!!

How far along are you? 39 weeks

How are you feeling? Great! I have the start of a cold or sinus infection though...

Are you prepared with everything if you're farther along? Yup, we're completely ready! Just waiting on baby...

Are you starting to get a mental list if you're not that far along? I still have a mental list of food stuff that is available for everyone.

Have you had an appointment this week? How did it go? Good... Had it on Monday... Hemoglobin was 10.9 so they want me to get that up to at least 11 but said that it wasn't that big of a deal since it was almost 11.

Any belly photos? Not lately, I should have DH take a picture tonight just in case...

Anything else? Nope, don't think so... I have an appointment with my natural healer on Saturday to make sure my hip isn't "locked" and I have another midwife appointment on Monday at 11a CST.

How far along are you? around 17 weeks

How are you feeling? pretty good!

Are you prepared with everything if you're farther along? n/a

Are you starting to get a mental list if you're not that far along? yeah, but there isn't much I need this time around.

Have you had an appointment this week? How did it go? my appt. was last week, so the post got lost, LOL! Next appt. is day before Valentine's day

Any belly photos? my 15-week pic is stuck on my camera for now... not much to see yet at all, really.

Anything else? think I maybe felt first movements after lunch yesterday. today I'll try to lie down after I eat and see if I was right.

How far along are you? Almost 15 weeks

How are you feeling? Pregnancy wise I'm feeling good. I've got an awful cold that is just hanging around but once that is gone I'm going to feel great

Are you prepared with everything if you're farther along? N/A

Are you starting to get a mental list if you're not that far along? I know I need some small cloth diapers but really that is all baby *needs*. Well, that and I do need to get another car seat.

Have you had an appointment this week? How did it go? Had an appointment on Wednesday and it was great. Baby has a nice strong heartbeat and is already a big mover.

Any belly photos? Not yet

Anything else? I can't believe next month I will be at the halfway mark! This pregnancy is going by so quickly and since we know it will be our last I am sad about that. On the flip side I am SO excited to meet the little person who will complete the family and the kids can't wait to have a newborn to cuddle with again.

How far along are you? 7weeks 2days

How are you feeling? Pretty good...the nausea comes and goes, but hasn't been horrible.

Are you starting to get a mental list if you're not that far along? Yeah, I guess...I'm still pretty early, but I am a planner, so I am always thinking on it!

Have you had an appointment this week? How did it go? haven't even decided on a midwife yet.

Any belly photos? No, I haven't taken any yet...though I should before I get a belly!

Anything else? I really need to quite being such a chicken and call the midwife!!

How far along are you? 21 weeks

How are you feeling? pretty good, honestly no real complaints but the lack of sleep.

Are you prepared with everything if you're farther along? n/a

Are you starting to get a mental list if you're not that far along? yes I am, and its overwhelming to me. The "nursery" is a complete dumping ground, and I really want that taken care of.

Have you had an appointment this week? How did it go? had an appt 2 weeks ago, have an u/s next Tuesday and an appt in 2 weeks.

Any belly photos? i should take some!

Anything else?

How far along are you? Was "due" yesterday

How are you feeling? Really tired, a little edgy, half just completely over this pregnancy, half wanting to hang onto it since this is my last.

Are you prepared with everything if you're farther along? Everything's as ready as it's going to get!

Have you had an appointment this week? How did it go? I'm 4-5cm's, 60% and -2. Which is all perfectly normal for the way I do birth. Baby looks and sounds perfect!

Any belly photos? Cameras run screaming in fear from my belly!!

Anything else? Wondering if I'll get snowed in this weekend- we have a big storm coming. I'd feel pretty bad if my midwife has to come by snowmobile!!

How far along are you? 22 weeks

How are you feeling? Tired!!! What is with this; I got sooo much sleep last night. I thought I was supposed to be to the part where I have tons of energy LOL

Are you prepared with everything if you're farther along? I don't think we're there yet

Are you starting to get a mental list if you're not that far along? Yes, we're starting to think of what we want to do with Jonah, if I want my mom to come during the first week to help etc. We're still discussing our options of home vs the birth center, but I'm starting to get things together for if we choose to stay home. I think we wont know for sure until I go into labor to be honest. If we go to the birth center, I dont think we'll need a whole lot. Everything is already there, including a fridge stocked with food and juice etc. I've already got the waterproof sheet for the bed in case we decide to stay at home.

Have you had an appointment this week? How did it go?
No, our next appointment is the second week in Feb. after we get back from our mini vacation

Any belly photos? I had DH take the first one last night, but it isn't on the computer yet.

Anything else? DH and I actually agree on the name! We went rounds with Jonah's name, and were still in the hospital "discussing" it. This one was the very first name we discussed and it's it... Evelyn Claire. We have been calling her Evie The whole family is already in love with her, and everyone agrees that the name is perfect (it's combining two family names) I know it seems small, but I am soooo relieved for this. It was really difficult to come up with Jonah's full name

Every time I take a picture of my belly, Hunter pulls his shirt up too! It's so cute.

How far along are you? 36 weeks and 4 days

How are you feeling? Pretty good. Just tired.

Are you prepared with everything if you're farther along? I have everything I need.

Are you starting to get a mental list if you're not that far along? n/a

Have you had an appointment this week? How did it go? I had my home visit Monday which went great. I had to go see my midwife and have a BPP today because I wasn't feeling him move. Of course, as soon as the sonographer put the probe on he started going crazy.

Any belly photos? I need to take one.

Anything else? I'm starting to get really excited. I can't wait until he's here and I can hold and cuddle him.

How far along are you? 29w,4d

How are you feeling? I'm getting over a cold and can't seem to shake the cough, but otherwise I'm doing fine

Are you prepared with everything if you're farther along? I think I just need to get the birth kit and then I'm good to go

Are you starting to get a mental list if you're not that far along? I tend to get things ready way ahead of time

Have you had an appointment this week? How did it go? I had an appt on Tuesday and it went fine. BP is great, urine was fine, baby is head down and low already

Any belly photos? I need to take a new one this week

Anything else? [b]Not really. I think we've settled on Violet Marie for the name. We need to pick her Korean name as well and are arguing over that. Lily's is "Eun-Ae" (grace with love) so following Korean tradition this baby's should start with "Eun" as well. We have it narrowed down to "Eun-Mi" (grace and beauty or grace and beautiful), "Eun-Kyung" (grace and honor) and "Eun-Sun" (graceful and good).
