We are getting so close, many of us in the 3rd Trimester already!!

So, lets check in and see how everyone is doing!

How far along? 27w4d

Weight gain? 4 lbs since my initial 10 lb loss

Breast changes? Bigger, definitely heavier and lots of leaking at night.

Sleep patterns? Fall asleep quickly, but wake up at least twice a night to pee! Staying comfortable is difficult

Next appointment? August 27th for my GD check

Have you had a baby shower yet? No, but planning one for Sept 27

New aches & pains? Lots of pressure down low & getting out of bed is a chore!

Do you feel ready? For the most part..........I need to get our birth tub ordered and then I will be more content.

How far along 27w 5d

Weight gain About 21 pounds

Breast changes Just bigger... lots bigger

Sleep patterns Sleep? What is that? I can't get comfortable, and when I do, it doesn't last long. For a while, sleeping on my back with my knees bent would get me through most of the night, but that's not working anymore.

Next appointment September 3

Have you had a baby shower yet Nope, one is planned for September 27

New aches & pains Nothing new. Still have the occasional blinding-pain calf cramp at night. BH contractions are frequent but not exactly painful. He is constantly moving, but not in a painful way yet.

Do you feel ready Not in the slightest. Still no word on the repairs to our upstairs, so the entire house is a wreck.

No weight gain I lost weight and have stayed the same.

They feel a little heavier and the color is changing a little bit.

Sleep patterns. Umm I sleep pretty good sleeping thru the night here and there but feeling exhausted.

I have my weekly ultrasound tomorrow and my GD appt on Thursday.

Baby shower. Im sad to say I don't get a baby shower it was scheduled or Sept 13th But I will be in the hospital and the baby might already be here.

I have been having some cramping and really sharp lower pains. And have headaches a lot The last few days but other then that nothing else new.

Am I ready? No not even close I didn't expect to have a baby so early I thought I would have a few more months so now I'm rushing to get things done.

How far along 28 w 6 d

Weight gain As of my appointment this morning 5 pounds

Breast changes They are huge. My nipples feel like they're tightening sometimes

Sleep patterns Sleep is still good! I get up to pee but that's it

Next appointment September 9th

Have you had a baby shower yet I don't have any family or friends in New Jersey so I won't be having one. It makes me very (selfishly) sad actually.

New aches & pains my left hip hurts at some point everyday but that's it. That and lots of pressure.

Do you feel ready Gosh no. We still have NO furniture or any of the big things. I'm not stressing it yet though. I'm ready in that I am SO STINKING TIRED of being pregnant!

How far along? 27 weeks today

Weight gain? Finally gained my first lb. Up 2 from pre-pregnancy

Breast changes? Sadly YES these girls got BIGGER again! I wasn't this big while BF'ing Ryan so this will be fun to see when the milk comes in again!

Sleep patterns? Up kinda late, enjoy the QUIET once my older ones go to bed. I am lucky my little guys still naps so I do too!! I get up to pee once or twice a night.

Next appointment? next week I think...

Have you had a baby shower yet? HA!! yes 12 years ago for my first. Nope baby number 5 gets nothing! LOL! My mom actually just payed for a big order or Carter's Stuff and she will be shipping it over soon. I can't wait!

New aches & pains? Not sure if it is pregnancy or age related but I can't sit on the floor to play with Ryan without sitting on a pillow. It just HURTS.

Do you feel ready? No I need to get the kids settled into the school year. Emotionally am I ready - yeah I think so. Ryan my last was a dream baby but my first three were HARD! I/ we are bracing for another hard one. I am not looking forward to Colic again but fingers crossed...

Mommy to Jack 11, Christopher 9, Kaitlyn 7, and

How far along? 26w4d

Weight gain? Total- 19lbs....I don't own a scale so I'll find out how much I weigh on Friday

Breast changes? they've been bigger for while, but thankfully have stopped I think. No leaking yet, and thankfully not hurting constantly anymore

Sleep patterns? I sleep pretty well....unless someone doesn't like how I'm laying

Next appointment? August 22nd for my Rh shot

Have you had a baby shower yet? Not having anything formal, made a registry mainly for family, getting together with extended family for a lunch "shower" some time in Septmeber/October.

New aches & pains? Joints...ugh mainly knees and ankles. Sitting up and stuff is also "fun" DH gets a good laugh at me every now and then

Do you feel ready? Personally- yes. Actually- no. I still need actual things that will have to wait until after we move in October.

How far along 26 weeks 4 days

Weight gain Around 20-25 lbs.

Breast changes Some days they look bigger; some days they don't. Some days they feel heavier; some days they don't. Some days the nipples have bumps; some days they don't.

Sleep patterns Sleep is getting more and more difficult. I'm up almost every hour peeing and changing sides because my hips get super sore.

Next appointment Friday, August 22.

Have you had a baby shower yet Not yet. It's planned for Sept. 27.

New aches & pains Hmm... Sometimes if I hold my bladder too long, it hurts when I pee. And if I walk too much, the bottom of my stomach starts hurting.

Do you feel ready I'm ready to meet him, and hold him, and kiss him. And, as soon as we get the nursery painted and and all of the furniture put in it, the room will be ready.

Baby #1 due to arrive mid-november

Weight gain? I think 10 pounds since initially loosing 10 pounds and gaining it back, so i guess total is 10 pounds. ... mind you i weighed myself last about 2 weeks ago.

Breast changes? Bigger, according to my step-mom. She kept mentioning it in front of my dad at dinner last Friday... embarrassing much !

Sleep patterns? Wake up about 3 times a night to pee. can't find a comfortable position to sleep in!

Next appointment? Sept. 14th - the first my husband will be able to attend!

Have you had a baby shower yet? No, mine is planned for Sept 21st

New aches & pains? Can't sleep. Hips hurt at night. Swollen feet. Acid re-flux. While moving i ended up sitting on the ground to empty boxes a lot... getting up from the floor is like the hardest thing ever now! ugh! Oh and goodness, i had the worst gas pain, felt like being stabbed (in mah butt lol) after our plane rides for about a week. I cried like a baby!

Do you feel ready? NO! we just moved and nothing is bought or ready. So i'm freaking out a little. I hope to start buying stuff soon and setting it up. My husband is way more laid back about it than i am!
