It's May (or it will be in a few hours) - Holy cow - can you believe it? How's everyone feeling? Any new pains? Concerns? Anyone have their baby shower yet?

hi, i'm due june 7th, and although am very uncomfortable, i swear i felt worse than this when i was at this point w/ my son! lol, i don't know, my hubby says i just haven't gotten to the point i remember yet, but i guess it's better i don't feel as horrible as i remember! no really new pains, all symptoms are fairly mild, but my huge concerns are finances after she comes and not being ready to welcome her into the world... i have so much to do, but can't get anything done because i work so much... and BELIEVE me, not because i want to... just need the money and it kills me to stand 8 hours a day!! i was supposed to have a shower on april 23, but had to cancel it because my mil forgot she couldn't come because of a previous engagement (she lives 5 hours away) and i can't travel to my family (also 5 hours in OTHER direction) for a shower due to a complication that prohibits me from travel :( i'm so depressed! so, my major concern is that i'm going to lose it and completely fall apart from stress...

Hi, I have a scheduled section for June 8 due to previous sections. I have two daughters and this is son #1. We are pretty ready. The nursery is done and items bought. I just need to find a day to do my freezer cooking. I like to fill my freezer with many different dinners so I can pull from those the first couple of weeks. We are doing the cord blood banking this time around and just got that all set up. I preregistered with the hospital tonight and plan on packing my hospital bag in the next week or so. Good luck!

I am due June 8th, but would love my little girl will come a few day early. I am feeling great right now. I am still carrying relatively high, so no pressure or discomfort in the pelvis. The main thing is I can feel her gaining weight.....its getting harder and harder to sit up when I've been lying in bed. Once I am up....everything is fine though. My husband and I are pretty much ready. I will have my shower mid-May, and then play the waiting game there after. I actually have a weddding to go to this next weekend, and am trying to figure out what to wear b/c my belly is big enough now that my shirts are getting a bit tight and riding up...lol. I may have to go buy a new dressy shirt just for the wedding.....oh well. Since this is my first pregnancy....maybe I will get more use out of a new maternity top with my next pregnancy, I just hate to buy a nice top and wear it once. anyway, good luck ladies!

Tillie - May 1

Hi June girls. I'm so excited that it's May!! Lindsay, that's terrible you have to stand all day!! That must be horribly painful! I feel very lucky to have gone on maternity leave already. I'm due June 15 and my right hip is killing me lately--what is this? Anyone else? As some of you June mommies know from the old thread, I moved last week from Ma__sachusetts to New York and currently my husband and I are renting a ROOM--literally, a room--and searching tirelessly for an apartment in the city. And because he works so much, really I'M doing all the searching...and not having great luck. All I want to do is set up a baby room! And get off my feet! And nest! It's so weird to be spending my last 6 weeks here, in this small room, without all the adorable baby things people got for her...I had a shower last weekend and was really showered with amazing gifts. Lots of little outfits, tote bags, diaper creams, hooded towels. It was great! Someone got me a "peanut" sling. Can't wait to try it.

I'm due June 29th. I haven't really gained any weight in 3 - 4 weeks, which is kind of nice for a change. I think I gained most of my weight in the beginning and he's slowing down a little now. I am actually feeling really well for the most part. I get BH contractions quite a bit still. It's hard to roll over in bed or bend down to my knees and then get back up. I have had a few sharp, shooting pains really low lately. I'm not sure what this is??

 

tlew - May 1

Hey June mommies. Im due June 11 and so far things are going good. no new pains, just the same ol stuff. My shower is May 20 and I really can't wait. I am sooo looking forward to my last day of work which is MAY 12. TWO MORE WEEKS!!!!! I think my co-workers were planning something for me this morning:) I drive about 2 and half hours everyday, so I really need to go on leave early cause its not really safe to be driving so far pregnant. But its really crunch time and we are all on a serious countdown. good luck mommies!!

Nita_ - May 1

Hello June mommies!! I can't believe time is flying by soo fast!! But Renee- I'm SOOOOO happy for you! Glad you got the OK to do some small errands. But don't go overboard! Who knows if you take care, maybe by next appt, your dr might say you can do other things as well. :) Well, we finally made it to babiesrus last wednesday and setup the registry(at least part of it!) There's just way too much choice for even the simplest things! So needless to say by the end of it, I was tired and was scanning everything and anything (it seems like!) We haven't even started with the essentials i.e., crib, car seat, stroller etc which we'll buy on our own so weren't planning for the registry. Need to pick out the bedding set and finalize the pain color, else my dh is going to drive me nuts! hehe. Yday, we did go into target and entered the 'baby zone'. Oh boy, couldn't resist but buy 10-15 outfits for our little angel! I bought items from NB to 9 months caz they were all soo cute! Tillie - am glad your move is over and good luck with the search for new apt!!

Hi all, I'm due June 17th. It's nice/comforting to read what everyone else is feeling at this time! This is my first, and up until a couple weeks ago I was feeling grand. Now can hardly walk faster than say, a snail, without experiencing a sharp pain very low down....I always halfway expect to glance down and see a foot hanging out. Also it's hard to get walking again after sitting/laying down for any period of time. Otherwise, just very excited to be in the home stretch, so to speak. Best wishes to all for a safe delivery!

 

Jenn - May 1

Hi Ladies!! Well, the date for me is set!! JUNE 1ST!! 8:00am I will be meeting our newest addition! I am sooo excited and everyday I look forward to this pregnancy being over with. I am having a lot of lower pelvic pressure and swelling!! But, the end IS finally near!!!!

 

Nora1 - May 1

So, those of you that talk about pain down low, what is it like that you're experiencing? Have you asked your docs about it and what did they say causes it if so? I have been having sharp pains very low and have 8 weeks to go, so am wondering what is causing this new pain! I know there are lots of them that come and go, but this is a brand new one! :)

 

Dia_ - May 1

Hi ladies! It has been a little while since I have been on here. I am actually feeling pretty great...especially compared to the hell of the first 6 months (morning sickness). I also JUST went on maternity leave...well, I am actually unemployed, but mat leave sounds much better :) TILLIE ~ I know you work for a university like me. My a__sistantship and cla__s just ended and I am not picking up anymore for the rest of the year...how about you? You are also another mover! We are moving about 3 months after baby is born. We THINK we might be going to South Carolina...ugh! Otherwise I am doing good. I am 34 weeks tomorrow (DD June 13th). Can't wait to meet Hunter, but also not sure I am ready to let him out yet :)

Allie - May 1

Good morning ladies. I am due June 21st, and this last week things have gotten unbelievably harder! My feet are constantly sore, and over the last 4-5 days apparantly the baby has started dropping...I am carrying lower now, and it is causing a lot of round ligiment pain. We almost have the nursery completed - painting was finished yesterday, now we just need to get the furniture where we want it...this was a long process for us, b/c I insisted we do all of the kids rooms at the same time, so we did my daughter's room first and then my son's, and now the babies. I had one shower May 22nd (only 3 guests), but work is also giving me one on Thursday, and my neighbor's are giving me one on Saturday, so I'm pretty excited about all of that. I am supposed to work through June 8th, but am wondering if I will be able to make it that long with the discomfort...hopefully I will, b/c we really do need the money.

 

MooBaby - May 1

Hello all you June Mamas! Nice to read this thread and get caught up with you! Allie, my feet are killing me too, by the end of the day I can hardly walk. Really strange... I went to get a pedicure the other day and it was pure heaven, I fell asleep!! HA! Anyway, my baby has been head down for weeks, but lately he is doing all sorts of weird acrobatics and its been painful. Very strange... anyone else experience this? I am due June 13th, but the whole time I thought it was the 16th! Dr. has me on the 13th. LOL! I had my first of 2 showers on Saturday and it was very fun with lots of baby clothes. This is our first, so me and DH will have to gets lots of baby stuff after the showers! (I am the first of my friends to have a baby, so most people want to buy cute outfits!) :) Anyway, nice to know you are all hanging in there and doing well. Good luck Tillie with finding your new home... I totally understand about wanting to NEST NEST NEST!
