hi July mamas!
I am 23 weeks on Monday and we have done nothing so far to get ready. have not even picked names yet. I guess we have some time but we really have to sit down and just get to it. I am feeling pretty good right now. I just have a little congestion that is keeping me from sleeping well but other than that all's good!
DD keeps lifting up my shirt and kissing my belly because I told her there is a baby in there. its so cute but I dont think she really gets it yet.
I want to start looking for a double stroller and gathering little bits and pieces of things I know I will need. Maybe pick out a coming home outfit just so this baby gets something new.
Hope everyone is feeling good!

About to start week 24. OB appt. on Weds but no more sonos til June (Boo!). No more tickles/flutters. Now it's more like bubbles popping. DH felt the baby for the first time the other night. We have the crib and dresser in the house but have not started the nursery at all. As far as I know (thanks to 2 people telling me they are unable to go) my shower invites have been sent out. We do not know the sex so it's been fun having people guess. MIL says a boy (She says she is usually 99% accurate). So, we shall see! We're talking about names but nothing "official". I just can't believe this is really happening!

PS: Physically feeling pretty good. Still a little heartburn if I have sauce, etc. Sometimes a little lower back ache if I'm on my feet for a while. But otherwise nothing to complain about. Chat Icon

Hi ladies. I just turned 25 weeks this past Friday. I can't believe how fast it is going. We just ordered our furniture. That should be here end of May beginning of June. It is so exciting and getting so real. I feel good besides the lower back aches and bloody noses in the morning. I do have to be on moderate bed rest because my cervix is a little short. So are fingers are crossed for that but other that doing great and can't wait to meet my little man :Babyboy: Hope all is well with you girls.

Re: <3 <3 Official July 2011MommyThread<3 <3

you're all right, this pregnancy is FLYING! DS1 is just about 20 mos and I can't believe there's almost 2 of them!

I also got a double stroller - got a great deal on a maclaren on craigslist with all the accessories (foot muffs, rain cover, headrests, hanging mesh bag) and it's an adorable navy, too. Perfect for my boys!

External Image

I know I can't snap an infant seat in, but it's OK. DS1 was only in the infant carrier for 3.5 mos, so we'll deal! Chat Icon

DS2 will come home from the hospital in the same outfit as DS1 - a little ralph lauren madras romper. I bought DS1 coordinating madras shorts, a navy polo, and a STRAW FEDORA. omg i can't take it. Chat Icon

Hi!

How is everyone doing? We are almost there. C-Section date has been set- July 12th @ 10:00am! (Although I have a feeling I will be going in a lot sooner than that)

I'm feeling okay- depends on the day though. Definitely slowing down quite a bit.

We just bought the nursery furniture this weekend, I ordered the wooden letters to decorate the room.. Got most of my basic necessities. Still shopping around for a double stroller though.

What has everyone been up to?

i'm feeling pretty good - just getting tired a lot earlier in the day compared to the second tri.

the nursery is pretty much complete except for the furniture. that should be delivered in a couple weeks. my shower is in 2 weekends so i cant wait to wash everything and set things up!

i bought some pj's for the hospital this past weekend and i'll pack my bag in mid-june. for now it just seems like a waiting game! can't wait for our little girl to get here. Chat Icon

I feel pretty cr@ppy. Short of breath all the time, heartburn, can barely get out of bed from fatigue. On Meds for high bp and just took the 3 hr glucose test....just praying for a not too early delivery!

We bought the crib and are painting the nursery, that's about all ive done so far which is probably not too good since Im not likely having a shower. Gotta get moving!

I really have to get moving on preparing for LO's arrival. We went stroller shopping yesterday, but didn't make a purchase YET. I still don't have anything except for binkies & a blanket I picked up in Target one day on a whim. I do plan on using most of DS's stuff, AND we're team Chat Icon again so probably that's adding to my procrastination. Been thinking of the room situation but it's in standstill rt now b/c we have work being done in the home and DS "big boy" room is now being used for storage so we can't get working on that yet, once we do, than I can get to the nursery (prob won't get done until the baby's born anyway since we're teamChat Icon ) Like pp said just praying that LO doesn't come earlier than expected!

Hi J Chat Icon

I really can't believe how quickly this pg is going. It doesn't hurt that there's something to do every single weekend from now til my due date. Chat Icon

I had to get the 3rd tri bloodwork done again on Saturday, apparently my white cell count was on the higher side last time. I must've been fighting off a bug or something at the time i was tested.

I went through all of DS1's clothes over the past couple weekends and it seems we have everything we need for DS2. Here's hoping he's the same size! I don't have any NB things, everything is 0-3m and up.

I'm working on their bedroom right now - the room has been rearranged and DS1's bed is assembled. I just have to fill some holes, touchup paint a few spots (they weren't exposed before, now they are. crib placement hid them!) and hang some new art. DS2 will be in our room til he sttn, but i'll have the room ready for both of them for naps, etc.

I'm having tons of braxton hicks, some are painful... and the shooting pain in the vajayjay has begun, depending on the baby's position. Nothing too unusual!

I am feeling really good. The baby's butt is in a spot where it can get uncomfortable but totally tolerable. I do get out of breath sometimes but I just sit down and take a few deep breaths and that helps. I am still able to sleep at night. Felt the baby kicking last night a little but I was able to fall back asleep quickly. Went for a sono the other day and the baby was sticking its tongue out and opening its eyes. Very cute. The sono tech lady says the baby has a lot of hair. She tried showing us and I couldn't tell....haha Got a 3D picture of the baby yawning. So adorable.

We ordered the baby's crib and furniture a couple of weeks ago from Bellini. It will be delivered the first week of July. We are just ripping the nursery apart now trying to get it ready. We are going to have the floors sanded and a few things worked on in the room. My brother is going to paint for us so hopefully we will have everything done soon. Its ok if it isn't because the baby will be sleeping with us in a bassinet at first. Still trying to pick out bedding though. I think I have picked one for each gender so I just want to go see them in person.

I can't believe how fast it has gone. Only 48 more days til my due date. Its crazy. I am hoping to go early. The doctor told me the baby is on the large side of normal...haha Hope everyone else is feeling well.

I'm feeling really good at 33 weeks! Like other people said, I just get tired more quickly than I used to and I fall asleep pretty early these days but I am still sleeping well :)

Right now the baby is breech. We decided not to do a version and the dr. is scheduling a C-section. I spoke to the lady from the office today she was going to call Winthrop and try and schedule the section for July 5th or 6th. She said I'll hear from them tomorrow morning to let me know. If the baby flips, then we can cancel the c-section but she said as I get further along, it is less likely for the baby to flip and since it's my first pregnancy, my uterus isn't really streched out so changes are the baby won't flip BUT you never know!!!!

I had my shower 2 weeks ago. We have started putting some thigns together (swing, rock and play sleeper, etc.) which has been fun. The nursery is done we are just waiting for the furniture!!!

I'm getting sooo excited about 6 weeks to go!!!!!!!

Are you team Chat Icon ? Or will you find out? We are having a boy!

Is this your first pregnancy? 2nd? 3rd? 1st

What ails you? Just feeling big these days! Still throwing up/dry heaving every morning, so that makes heartburn worse later at night.

What are you loving these days? Feeling my little one move around!

What is on your agenda? ( saving up so that you can quit your job? house hunting? working on nursery? reading books about how to care for a baby? etc) Right now we are purging all needless stuff to make room for the baby. So we've been doing some serious cleaning!

Re: <3 <3 Official July 2011MommyThread<3 <3

I am feeling good, I get bursts of energy, and bursts of exhaustion. Sometimes sitting makes it difficult to breathe, and theres no way I can lay on my back, I would suffocate lol.

The baby is still moving, less than before, but she thinks she can stick body parts through my belly, shes so cute already !!

The nursery is finally ready to prime, paint, and carpet, got a call today that the furniture is delayed so i won't be getting it until the beginning of July which stinks since I am due the 14th but they said it will def be delivered before the 10th, so if she comes early her room will not be ready, but that's OK cause she will be in the bassinet anyway, I just can't put away drawer stuff or set up the bedding.

My shower is in 2 weeks, can't wait for that!! Other than that I am just anticipating her arrival, I talk to her every morning and know she will recognize my voice when she pops out.Chat Icon

Re: <3 <3 Official July 2011MommyThread<3 <3

I'm feeling ok. I had major back problems before getting PG and the day I hit 30 weeks they started flaring up. So I've been struggling with lots of back pain. I barely sleep at night.

My shower was earlier this month, which was really nice. We have LOs furniture set up, but still need to get some things and set everything else up.

I'm still waiting for my c-section date. My OB said he'll prob do it at 38 weeks because he doesn't want me going into labor, so that puts us at the week of July 11th. Hopefully I'll get my exact date this week.

I can't believe how fast time is flying!!Chat Icon

ME: I'm 31 weeks and feeling great! I do feel some lower back pain after teaching or doing anything for long periods of time but it's tolerable.

LO Chat Icon She's so beyond active, I could never imagined that anything would move this much I even notice it when I'm active as well which shocks me. I've video taped my stomach moving on several occasions it never gets old feeling it...It seems that she never sleeps in there lol!!! I've also been dreaming about her almost every night!

Nursery: The nursery is painted and the furniture my parents bought us is set up. I'll be able to finish her room after my shower because I've been given specific instructions to not buy Anything until I see what I get for my shower...I can't wait Chat Icon

Other preparations: We signed up for Lamaze...we're doing the 1 day, 8 hour super course because our schedules didn't work well with the weekly classes. That's about all the prep so far!
