Hi girls. :) WOO HOO

 

aliciavr6 - March 1

I have a question for you girls. I know babies like to come whenever they want, so my question is when do we pack a hospital bag and have everything taken care of with the baby room, etc? I'm horrible at planning! I was talking to a friend yesterday who said his daughter was 6 weeks early, and it hit me... that's only in a month and a half!!

HI!!! LOL.... I am a___l so I have most of stuff for baby already (except carseat) and have already started to pack a bag for myself... I have watched to many baby stories on TLC where they waiting till the last 2 weeks and then of course the baby comes earlier and they are scrambling to get things....

I've been good with buying things that's for sure hahaha. It's just organizing I'm not so good with. I bought so much c___p, and we just pile it up in the baby's room, which is already filled with OUR junk. It's going to take a whole weekend to clean it out. At least the crib is put together. :) It's good you started on your bag!!! Geez, I dont even know what to take...

I don't know about the bag yet.. better safe than sorry.. but better to make a list.. make up, pads, bras, sweats, extra underware, pillow, slippers, baby clothes, camera, etc... that way you don't have it packed away yet.. but you know what you need. I plan to pack my bag around the 34 week mark.... I had to make three emergency trips to the hospital when pregnant with my son and we just threw some stuff in and sometimes my hubby had to go back to the house and get my stuff. Better if you have a list so they know what you want. We got dumped on last night with snow!! Schools just shut down.. not my luck that work would though! :) So we are cheating by moving over to third trimester a little early.. but we are close enough!

Well, anyone due on June 1st is in 3rd tri today so we may as well all move over, that's how I see it. ha. Yeah it seems like most of what I would pack to take to the hospital is stuff I use everyday, so I'm not sure how I'll pack ahead of time, maybe buy extra stuff I guess...

My nursery is far from ready, which makes me so nervous. I keep thinking that if the baby were to come early that we would never get it finished! I mean, I'm definately not painting with a newborn in the house. I keep pestering my dh to hire someone to fininsh his SLOW project, but he wants to do it alllll by himself. Men. I don't get it. It's going to be here so soon. In 10 weeks my lil one will be fully cooked (37 weeks)...and 10 weeks ago was Christmas, and that feels like a second ago!

Hey girls! I can't believe it's already time to move over to the third trimester!!! There is light at the end of the tunnel......and it's going to come quickly!!! I'm due June 2nd, so I think that means I'm officially in the third trimester Saturday, but today works for me : ). The doctor threw around something about May being the due date now after my last appointment...but I'm still sticking with June 2! I'll get to have one more u/s this trimester, so I'll be looking forward to seeing the boy again and how big he's gotten. So I say we stick with this thread since it's our original thread ; )...it's easier for me to spot that way. lol. So I'm getting together with my aunt and good friends who are throwing me my showers today and talking shower talk!!! I'm so excited. I know I shouldn't even be helping, but I told them I just want to get together with them the first time and see what they've got up their sleeve ; )...and to collaborate guest lists and such. I'm so excited! The first one is going to be April 14th, and the next one will be April 21st. It seemed like so far away last month, but now it's already March 1 and it's a little over a month until the first one! Oh my is time going this fast for everybody else? How's everybody doing today anyway? Sarah I am sooooo sorry to hear about your little poochie's eye issues, but it sounds like she's on the road to recovery. Talk to you girls soon!

This one works for me too!! Maybe this one is better due to t_tle...

Alicia- I always bought extra of what I use everyday and put that kind of stuff in my bag. Then, made the list of the things that I won't buy extra of so that I could throw it all in on the way out. I think that I will pack my bag at 32 weeks. That was when I made my first trip last time and I want to be prepared. I always think ahead! I guess because I will have to pack my bag plus a bag for all 3 of the other kids because they will go to their grandparents. Is anyone else freaking out and frustrated right now!? I want everything to be done - the babies room, the house clean, the laundry done, things bought, etc. I feel like I am being over controling. But, then I am so freaked out by the fact that this baby will be coming soon, that I am scared to death! I know I have done this before, but I am feeling so stressed about making sure everything is done.

Hi girls..I go to the Dr today after work, dreading getting on the scale, I can't beleive the last trimester is here already, my due date is June 2 also Kelly...our babies will soon all be here before we know it. The babies room is finished, MIL bought the baby her stoller and car seat that I wanted and a high chair and swing, getting it next weekend when we go there for the weekend..Hoping evrone is doing good!

Congrats, Ladies! We finally made it!!! I am really scared now! But also very excited! To mark the move to the 3rd trimester thread, I saw a dream tonight that I delivered my baby-boy myself. That was sorta weird but he was so perfect! This is the second time I see a dream that I had to deliver my baby-boy by myself with no one around me. Do you think someone is trying to tell me something?

I was just saying to hubby last night that I am getting ready for baby to be here and start our life with him/her. I am anxious about how life will be with 2. Can I handle another one.... will I have enough time, energy, patience.. MONEY!! :) It all works itself out somehow. For those of you who had preterm labor with other babies.. Are you starting to get nervous this go round that same thing may happen. I was really in alot of cramping pain last night and thought.. WHO CRAP.. not this again. But today is better.. Really trying to take it easy!! My goal is 36 weeks with no issues.. after 36 weeks... I won't be as worried. I was 25 weeks when I went into labor with son and doctors kept telling me there was a good chance baby would survive... but I didn't want that.. I want baby to be full term and fully developed.!!! Not wanting to rush this.. because it will go fast.. but getting anxioius to be with the little one and get back to my normal body, feeling good... etc.

Thanks momtbc - I can pick up those little trial things next time I'm at Wal-mart and start collecting extra makeup, god knows I'll need it. I'm also getting really impatient, I'm ready for baby to be here already. Well emotionally ready... but obviously not READY ready. ha. I also had a dream I gave birth last night, but I was still only 25w in my dream. And in the dream, (gross) I checked and could feel baby's head coming out, so I had my brother take me to the hospital but nobody was there so I went home, and that's when I woke up.

 

pebblesnbambam - March 1

Again last night.. no dreams.. at least that I can remember. I had soo many with my son.. and a few of the delivering my own baby dreams too... but nothing this time. Weird! It is exciting knowing that we are getting closer.. Is time going slower for you ladies now than it did earlier on??? Maybe with holidays and stuff it made it fly by..

 

aliciavr6 - March 1

ive heard time goes slower, but 2nd tri flew by for me!

 

Kelly11 - March 1

Pebbles I sometimes wish I could stop having so many dreams in one night!!! Last night I had a bad nightmare as well as the night before---and I usually never have bad dreams! Only weird ones : ). Haven't had any about delivering the baby that I can remember...seems like all of them are completely unrelated to my pregnancy. Weird. I am feeling so ready to meet this kid though! I hope the next weeks fly by because otherwise I might go stir crazy. A lot of my friends/relatives are having their babies right now or within the next few weeks so that makes it even worse! But at the same time I want this baby to be fully baked and ready to come out when he's good and healthy...so I'll try and be patient. : ) Anybody else dealing with some night sweats and insomnia? This past week I have been waking up completely drenched in sweat...which is really unusual for me! And pretty gross in my opinion. Then last night I had my first bout of insomnia. It seems like everything I'm experiencing is taking place in the night! I can't complain though because I've still been feeling really good and lots of energy during the day. I think I might go shopping for some more shirts this weekend though because I'm having a hard time fitting into a lot of mine......and that seemed to happen overnight! Anybody else having this problem yet? I was hoping I could hold off until spring was really here, but I guess since all of the spring clothes are out I'll go check 'em out. Anybody decided yet on which carseat they'll be getting?
