@Mrs. Oreo: Yay for February babies! So excited for you.
When is everyone planning to take their maternity photos?
I’ll be doing mine alone. We’re waiting for some good snow and hope to take pics near a body of water also. Hoping it all works out!

@Mrs. Oreo: we are doing ours in January. Photographer said one month prior to birth so hopefully all goes as planned!
@LabradorLover: I’m thinking I’m gonna end up doing mine in Jan just cause of the weather. Hopefully I have the energy!

Just drank some "fruit punch." GD testing today... fingers crossed it comes back fine!
As for maternity photos, my mom is going to snap a couple of my sister and I at Christmas time since she is due in January and I'm February... but I doubt we'll do anything else. Sorry baby #2; I had two sessions with DD1.
Just as an update, passed the GD test! Feeling relieved about that.
Everyone else doing OK?
@Miss Sarah: that is great! I remember it being such a relief!
I’m doing good, 31 weeks tomorrow and it still in good shape, no uncomfortableness. Hoping it stays that way!!

@Miss Sarah: Congrats for passing!!! I did not. Which I expected since I failed with DS as well. I've been checking my blood sugar for about a week now. Nothing out of wack so far. Part of me thinks I just don't handle a large bolus of sugar well in the morning period, and I guess if that makes me a "diabetic" well then so be it, but time will tell if my numbers are as easy to control this time as last.
@Miss Sarah: Yay for passing!!!
I've been feeling pretty good overall, but definitely have more daily crotch pain. It makes me feel like I get kicked down there several times a day, but baby is a major wiggler so that's a good distraction.
Had my "32 week" ultrasound yesterday (I am 31+4 days today) and baby looks great! She is head down and 4.0 pounds. They said if she continues to grow at the rate she is, she should be right around 7.5 pounds if she arrives right around her due date. She even has some hair! I can't wait to meet her!
How is everyone else doing?
@LabradorLover: that's awesome to hear!! i don't get any more scans after the 20 week one as long as things are looking good, but I'd be so curious what baby looks like now.
I think I had Braxton-Hicks contraction last night. It almost knocked me on my ass because I wasn't expecting it, but it didn't last more than 30 seconds and it went away after I shifted. But holy hard uterus!
Oh my gosh, I feel like I've been neglecting this board!! But honestly, I've had a LOT on my plate lately, personally, at work, with grad school, and all of my days are getting jumbled up. But less than 10 weeks to go - so I need to STOP stressing so I don't force myself into early labor.
While I tested negative for GD (yay!), my OB still wants to do a growth scan on baby at my 32/33 week appt. since my first was 9 pounds 2 ounces. So I'm super excited to see baby girl again in a couple of weeks!
@Mrs. Oreo: BH contractions are so weird!! They definitely can get intense, but nothing like the real thing!
Hope everyone is doing well!!
Happy New Year mommas! We can officially say our babies are due NEXT MONTH! How are we all feeling?
@Miss Sarah: happy new year to you and our fellow mommas!!!
I’m feeling achy and sore almost all the time. And today I got to say I was due next month lol, which was kind of freaky!
Sorry I’ve been absent, I feel like time is flying and so much is going on! I’m doing great, 35 weeks and change now and cannot believe it is so close to the time we get to meet our daughter!!
I had my shower this past weekend and being the crazy person that I am, already out everything away and washed whatever I could. I am so ready for this baby!!
Hope everyone else is doing well!

@LabradorLover: so excited for you!
Had my 36 Week Appointment today (technically 36 weeks this upcoming Saturday) and they said that due to my high blood pressure (even though I take medication and it’s totally controlled) they will most likely induce me at 39 weeks. I wasn’t aware of that so I was caught off guard but so excited! Crazy to think that I will have a baby in my arms in just 3 weeks!! They didn’t give me an actual date but holy cow!
@LabradorLover: Whoa! I would totally be super excited too! I've got 5 weeks yet to go, and I'm already over it and want to meet the little one so badly!
@LabradorLover: @Mrs. Oreo: OMG I can't believe we're getting this close. Except I'm totally over it (pregnancy), so I can believe it at the same time. I just bought a glorified pool raft with a belly hole in it on amazon because I can't get comfy on my side. I'll be 34 weeks on Saturday but DS came at 38 so I'm keeping my fingers crossed this one's the same.
I've been in slight panic mode because we went in for a "special" private 3d ultrasound before Christmas and she was frank breech. Not only did it cue the "breech panic" in my brain, but we couldn't see her face because her arms and legs were in front of it. Then we went back for a rescan last week and she was equally uncooperative in showing her face and her head moved from down by my right hip back up and over to my left ribs while the tech was trying to get a good picture. We go in for our last ditch effort rescan on Saturday... Good news is, I've confirmed with US on Monday and Tuesday that she is head down now. So all the fingers crossed she stays that way and we get some good 3d pics.
Sorry I’ve been MIA! I feel like the days are super slow and flying by at the same time if that makes any sense!
@BadgerMom: how did your scan go? Did you get good pictures?? Glad to hear that she is head down now!
@Mrs. Oreo: I’m surprisingly not over pregnancy yet but can’t wait to meet my little one, too!
I've been MIA for awhile! Whoops! My newest nephew was born last Monday and then sickness (RSV and strep) has been circulating our family. My DD is now dealing with the brunt of it, but hopefully we'll all be better soon!
I had an unexpected 3D two weeks ago and attached the pic. Have another ultrasound in two weeks to confirm size. DD#1 was 9lb 2oz, so they are watching this one's size. I'm feeling ok, getting achy-er down below and starting to have some back pain. But mentally, I am NOT ready yet. Feeling overwhelmed actually by my "to-do before baby comes" list... hoping to feel more ready soon!
