Hey girls! How are you all doing?

How far along are you now? Do you have everything ready? How are you feeling in general?

I'm still here, 38 weeks.

I'm starting to feel done. I'm huge, uncomfortable, crampy, tired, grumpy and ready to meet this baby. Oh and I have today and tomorrow left to work before I'm off. hhm, I sound really negative here, I'm really not, I'm actually very excited about the upcoming birth, I'm just ready for it to be here now.

Everything is ready except for my bag, I still haven't packed my hospital bag. I really should do that soon.

I'm 30 weeks. I'm already tired of bedrest and hoping that i only have another 2 weeks of it but i won't be surprised if it's more like 6.. in the extra time i have i've been reading more about high-risk babies and childbirth and everything. it's made me more certain about what i want for a childbirth but also more concerned that i won't be able to have the birth experience i want.

i don't have much ready at all except for a huge stash of clothes, a carseat, and an unwashed cd stash. and unfortunately, there's nothing i can do to get more ready (besides get myself mentally ready) if the baby does come early! that's a little stressful, but i also realize that if he comes this early then he'll probably be in the hospital a for a while so i'll have more time to get ready.

it'll work out!

Hey there ladies

21 weeks today and feeling really good apart from the fact am starting to get that super tired feeling again. After work yesterday went home and crashed for two hours before getting up and making dinner !!

Very happy to be over the half way mark and to be feeling baby (first) moving around on a daily basis now !

Have crib, carseat and changetable organised but am waiting to do a lot of other things in the nursery cos we are having a surprise baby!

Am really looking forward to this whole experience - am totally excited to give birth and feel totally in control and not scared at all right now. Am really happy that I have found you ladies at JM to talk with - you keep me feeling powerful and content and excited ! And not so strange as a person for wanting to do the things i want to do !!
I am wondering if anyof u have any suggestions or comments on baby slings and the ones that worked best for you though??
Much love xx

I'm about 38 1/2 weeks now. I am feeling pretty big and uncomfortable. I can feel my hands and feet swelling as I sit here! LOL I am anxious to have this baby, but I keep telling myself not to have this baby until my family gets here next weekend!

I don't know what I'm having, so I have my son's newborn clothes washed and folded and I have baby girl clothes that were given to me ready as well. I have the car seat from my second son, who is almost two, and I have my bag partially packed.

35 1/2 weeks! Only a few more to go! I am getting excited! I had my shower yesterday, but I am still missing a carseat and a stroller. But I got some money and gift cards, so that should be remedied soon. We still need to build one of her bedroom walls, but that sould be mostly done on Sunday. I was putting clothes away today, and DH is almost done with the crib. Still so much to do! But we'll get it done somehow!

I'm 27 almost 28 weeks. I've started having this crazy UPPER back pain which is making it hard to sleep at night. Baby is an active little one...which I love since it reassures me that he's doing okay.

I have a cosleeper, crib set, clothes, and a prepped cloth diaper stash. My breast pump is in the mail. Dh and I need to go pick up the carseat from the store.I just need to order the "extras" like my mei tai, baby monitor, breast milk storage rack,etc.

I have another U/S this upcoming week to make sure that my previa has resolved and to make sure that my cervix isn't doing any more funneling. I also have my GD test.

She's 37 weeks so we're almost there. He could come at anytime now.

We have the labor bag packed and in my car and the car seat's there too.

Cesar, whenever you're ready, so are we.

I'm a proud father to a bouncing baby boy!

I'll be 27 weeks on Monday, and I'm feeling pretty good. I still have some sciatic problems, but I'll be fine. I don't have anything ready. We're going to have my mom's friend come over and help us organize the kids' room (where my daughter sleeps now; baby brother will join her in that room about 2 months after he's born in August).
