    1) Due date? How many weeks are you? What size is baby? March 9th, 38 weeks, baby is a pumpkin

    2) Age at delivery? (optional) 36

    3) Any other children? Furbabies? 2 pups that got groomed yesterday to prep for their little bro or sis

    4) How are you feeling? New symptoms this week? Still feeling like crap. Honestly so over being pregnant. Thank god I only have 3 weeks tops to go. My doc said he won't let me go more than a week past my due date.

    5) Any upcoming appointments, milestones, rants or raves? Lost my mucus plug on Saturday so hopefully it means my body is prepping for labor soon. Weekly appt. on Wednesday.

    QOTW: What is your dream job or career? To own and operate my own doggie daycare. I went college for pre-vet medicine and was a vet tech for years but the happiest I ever was was when I had my own part time pet sitting business. Unfortunately don't have enough savings yet to give up the day job and focus totally on watching pets. Some day though!

    1) Due date? How many weeks are you? What size is baby?  5/7; will be 30 weeks tomorrow.  So apparently an acorn squash today (week 29) and a cucumber starting tomorrow.  Which makes no sense at all.

    2) Age at delivery? (optional)  38

    3) Any other children? Furbabies?
      2 cats

    4) How are you feeling? New symptoms this week?
      Actually feeling pretty good.  Knock on wood!  Getting a little freaked out about how much (work and baby-prep) has to get done in the next 10-ish weeks, though!  

    5) Any upcoming appointments, milestones, rants or raves?
       Not really ... I have a couple weeks off now then the calendar gets nuts with fititng in way too many appointments since I think after 32 weeks I'm supposed to start getting weekly BPPs in addition to the checkups with the midwives.  

    QOTW: What is your dream job or career?   Hmm ... not sure it exists.  It would be something where I actually only have to work 35-40 hours a week (or even 30 would be OK even with proportional pay cut) but get a decent salary for that, along with it being interesting work (something science or nature and/or education related would be ideal) with some autonomy but no responsibility for writing anything and no fundraising.  Also, no dressing up required.  And, I'd like a couple weeks off in May/June and again in September/October, and really a week in the winter for skiing would be good too but not a school vacation week (at least until LO is school-aged) so that we can get decent prices for travel and not have things so crowded.   Oh and there should be good job security.  

    That's not asking too much, is it?  

     Teaching (what I do now) is lovely except for that it takes over way too much of my life - I cannot keep up with it in anywhere near 40 hours a week - and the busiest times of year are the same times I want to play hooky and just be outside, and only being able to take time off or travel during school vacation weeks.

    We've got quite a few ladies getting really close to baby time! So exciting! @Melissa72777 @jbelle @Beachgal72

    @QOTR sorry about failing the GTT, hopefully you'll pass the 3 hour!

    1) Due date? How many weeks are you? What size is baby? May 29, 26 weeks, I can't remember the fruit!

    2) Age at delivery? (optional) 37

    3) Any other children? Furbabies? 19-month-old daughter and 2 grumpy old cats.

    4) How are you feeling? New symptoms this week? Feeling pretty darn good. I started going to a chiropractor for my hip pain and it's really helping me.

    5) Any upcoming appointments, milestones, rants or raves? I had a growth ultrasound yesterday because I have GD and the little guy is measuring right on track in the 68th percentile. Third trimester starts Thursday!!

    QOTW: What is your dream job or career? I like the idea of traveling the world and taking photos, but those Nat Geo photographers get in some crazy situations. I've always wanted to run my own business. Not sure what it would be though, lol. Actually, I like @springbeduk2 's dream job, I'll do that too!
