Hi ITSABOY! I responded to your post regarding weight gain. If you want to chat, just write back. I am 26 weeks and also having a boy. It's my first pregnancy and we're very excited!

Hey ladies, I'm 25 weeks...so we should all be around the same size/symptoms. How are things going for you? I'm officially off of work (I had gallbladder surgery and some complications, so I've gone on short-term dissability) so I have a lot more time on my hands and since this is our first I'm home all alone! We found out it's going to be a girl, who we're naming after my late mother and mother in law (her name is Audra Maria) so I've been trying to keep myself busy preparing. For some reason, I recently realized that the baby is almost here and now feel compelled to get everything in order. I think it has to do with the books I'm reading. I read what to expect when you're expecting and just started what to expect the first year and OMG! It stressed me out to think of all the things I don't know and don't have yet. I think I was in denial for a long time, just trying to get to this point, and now that we're almost in our third trimester, it just hit me one day that this is for real! She's really coming! How about you gals? How are you dealing with everything?

Room for another? I'm 25 weeks, too. This is my 5th pregnancy, but will only be my second child. I haven't made it this far since my son. I had him at age 22 and now a whopping 10.5 years later - I am doing it again - with another little boy. I have realized that I have truly forgotten everything. Last night my 10 year old was so kind as to remind me that in 10 years when I was forcing his little brother to eat green beans - he would be eating pizza at college. I think I was fine until that point - now I'm just scared to death!

Hi Ladies, after a day of running around like a chicken with my head cut off, I'm zonked. Do you gals find you're starting to slow down? Recently my stomach has really expanded and I'm starting to feel it. I'm much more tired now and feel heavy and lethargic a lot more (kinda like my first few weeks of pregnancy). I read somewhere we're supposed to be feeling GREAT! at this point, but I find I'm starting to get tired more easily, can't last as long while shopping, my feet hurt more during our nighly walks and my stomach is getting HUGE! Am I the only one?

Yourtrish - I actually heard that around 25/26 weeks was when some of the tiredness started to return. I'm getting big myself and by 9pm my eyes start to droop - just like in the beginning. I just came home early from my son's baseball game because I was so uncomfortable. I think I'll just turn on the b___b tube and catch up on some reruns. You're not the only one!

Hi Ladies! Sorry it took me so long to write back.I am now 27 weeks (as of today) and VERY excited to be approaching my due date (August 24). That's exactly 3 months from today! YAY! Waiting is the hardest part.....I'm ready to hold and cuddle my new baby! I was extremely sick & nauseated up until just a few weeks ago, so now I am just enjoying waking up and feeling good! But I understand what you're saying about feeling tired and uncomfortable, mcatherine. My belly has recently expanded and my biggest problem is trying to get comfortable. My husband & I went to the movies Friday night....and let me tell you, whoever invented the chairs in that movie theater definitely DID NOT have pregnant women in mind. It was extremely uncomfortable. At least I'm not the only one feeling uncomfortable these days! :-) So, where does everyone live??

Hi ladies I'm @25wks. w/ a little girl this is my first and I must say I'm starting to get a little scared. I've had moments of this, but it is apparent to me now that I'm going to be someones mom. It freaks me out a little, it comes in waves. My hubby and I are super excited I just am like wow, we're not going to be alone @ breakfast, we're going to have a baby w/ us. We've been together for 12 yrs. and decided it was time to have a child and bam I was pg 1st try. I can't wait to hold our baby in my arms, I'm just a little overwhelmed by this. At least my hubby can be my voice of reason he is so calm that when I freak out he's like everything will be fine, we're on a new horizon and it's awesome. My due date is Aug 31. Hope it was okay to join. Take care all.

I too am a little confused as to which date to go by. My LMP tells me my EDD is Sept.6th, but my u/s said the 9th, so I'm sure it will SOMETIME around there, but given the fact that this is our first, I'm expecting to go a bit longer (better to expect the worst...). I guess it's the fact that we are all getting bigger, because I'm not as comfortable as I was even a week ago! Sleeping is more of a challenge now and the baby seems to like to kick my bladder this week, so I've been in and out of the bathroom 20 times a day (isn't it the worst when you think you have to pee sooooo badly and you finally find a washroom, only to hear a 2 second tinkle come out!!!). Our baby shower is June 10th, since I'm a___l and wanted to get it over with before I was too far into my third trimester. I've always had it in my head that I wanted to be able to relax during the third and not have to stress about anything major. But alas, I'm sure I'll stress just the same. I realized this weekend that I still don't really know how to change a diaper or swaddle or bath a baby...so much to learn....so little time! Ha! Of course, my friends all tell me it's normal to hit the "panic" stage around now and that I will calm down and my maternal instinct will kick in and everything will work itself out, so I'm trusting their words of encouragement. We're also starting a pre-natal cla__s (dh and I) in June, so I'm sure just meeting other pregnant woman and asking my silly questions will help ease the anxiousness. One thing for sure, I now appreciate my Mom so much more knowing what she went through for my sister and I! Pregnancy is no where near and blissful and glowing as I originally thought! But, I would still never give up this experience for the world...it's an amazing feeling to know you have a life growing inside of you, especially when I visit those online sites about fetal development and you can actually imagine what your baby looks like in there!

clare - May 24

hi everyone!! im 25/26 weeks dont know what im having as i was told a boy then a girl lol how is everyone? is anyone else not sleeping at all?? its killin me! xxx

 

mcatherine - May 24

I am so glad to hear I am not the only one that isn't sleeping. Well, sad for you guys, but happy I'm not alone. I had to take a nap already and it is just now noon! I know that I'm lucky I don't have to work - uugghh - I can't imagine how I would make it through the day with no sleep. (I guess we'd all better get used to it). And YES, all I do is go to the bathroom - I have even gone from once a night to twice already. I am due September 6th - 25 weeks today! I guess this is everyone's first except mine. Clare - How about you? I can remember how to change a diaper and trust me, by the time you've had your baby a week, you could all win compet_tions at it! Yourtrish and Itsaboy - you both have selected beautiful names. My mother and father have both pa__sed, but they both have two children each named after them - so we are going original. We are naming our son Hudson. No middle name picked out yet!

 

clare - May 24
