    How far along are you/what size is baby? 31w; baby is the size of an otter (I like this comparison instead of to asparagus! What asparagus is 16.7 inches long??)

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms? Rant = I pulled something in my back/left butt-cheek last night. That, combined with LO hanging out super low for the evening, made it almost impossible to sleep comfortably/turn over in bed. Luckily whatever I pulled in my back/butt last night loosened up by morning, and LO moved up higher, so I'm not as miserable this morning. I definitely considered taking the day off to rest, though!

    Doing anything baby-related this week? At SOME point, we're going to paint this kid's room! I also need to break out the newborn and 0-3 months clothes to do some laundry and load up the dresser.

    GTKY: Feeling the urge to nest? What's on your to-do list? I made a big clothes purge and cleaned out/organized my closet and the laundry area in our basement... so far, that's probably been my biggest bout of nesting. On my pretty long to-do list = paint nursery, put up curtains, decorate (hang decals and prints), order and change light fixture, wash newborn and 0-3 month clothes to stock dresser, purchase rest of the items on my shopping list!

    How far along are you/what size is baby?
    29 weeks; Barbie's convertible, pineapple, and an acorn squash. 

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms?
    Peeing every 30-45 minutes is getting old. Acid coming up my throat is also starting to become a normal occurrence. 

    Doing anything baby-related this week?
    My baby shower is Sunday! I cannot wait. 
    And I just got a phone call that they failed to give me my rhogam shot last Friday and I need to get it before Tuesday so now I'm going in when they open before work at 8:30. Not too happy. 

    GTKY: Feeling the urge to nest? What's on your to-do list?
    We haven't done anything for the nursery. It is still full of boxes from our move. We need to kick it into high gear this weekend to make room for all of our gifts from the shower. Someone start saying a prayer for me! Haha

    31, pineapple

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms?
    Maybe have GD but I'm still in denial and waiting for them to call to go over results. I could call them proactively but I'd rather wait a little bit longer.

    Doing anything baby-related this week?
    Not really.

    GTKY: Feeling the urge to nest? What's on your to-do list?
    Paint DD's big girl room, furnish/decorate it, get a new changing table/dresses for the nursery, organize baby clothes. Endless list.

    30 weeks. A zucchini 

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms?
    Middle of the night back pain is my biggest complaint. But baby is moving all the time and I love it! 

    Doing anything baby-related this week?
    The crib is getting assembled this weekend. It's the last piece of nursery we need to do. 

    GTKY: Feeling the urge to nest? What's on your to-do list?
    Im doing all the nesting! The nursery is totally put together including clothes in the dresser aside from the crib (going up this weekend), I bought and put together gifts for the L&D nurses and the postpartum nurses. I've been slowly piecing together my hospital bag. All of my at home postpartum personal items have been purchased. I've washed walls, baseboards, and had the carpets cleaned. Next on the list is cleaning the basement, making room in a couple cupboards to baby bottles and pumping stuff. And the very last thing will be putting the car seats in the cars. But holding off until 36 weeks for that. My baby shower is next Saturday so I'm looking forward to putting all that stuff away

    How far along are you/what size is baby? 31 weeks: romaine lettuce, asparagus, foam finger

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms? The good: lots of kicks and rolls to remind me that baby is doing great. The ugly: rib pain, low blood pressure at work, getting up at night to pee a TON! 

    Doing anything baby-related this week? I have an OB appt today and our first week of childbirth prep classes (5 weeks total). 

    GTKY: Feeling the urge to nest? What's on your to-do list? Yes definitely! I've already done a lot of cleaning and now we just have to wait until we get a dresser for baby (at my shower) to organize everything. We are also still waiting to find out if we'll be in a new house when baby comes so that adds a whole new later of stress to the equation.

    How far along are you/what size is baby? 32w - armadillo, or some freakishly large untralistic fruit/vegetable I haven't even looked at yet today

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms?
    Feels like I got kicked in the crotch all.the.time. This LO moves a lot more gently /less frequently than DD did, which is kind of nice because she was a not-so-stealth ninja and kicked the hell out of me all the time. It doesn't hurt usually when this LO moves around!

    Doing anything baby-related this week?
    No nursery here, but hopefully getting DDs area ready so LO can take her spot on my side of the bed. 
    Oh, and I ordered a bunch of postpartum stuff that should be here this week, so I will start packing my hospital bag soon.

    GTKY: Feeling the urge to nest? What's on your to-do list?
    I have been cleaning the most random non-baby related things. Kitchen is clean, my office is clean, baby stuff....not so much. I am still in denial!

    @soberkfell - your a rockstar for doing this on time so often too! ;)

    How far along are you/what size is baby? 31w - head of romaine lettuce, asparagus, foam finger, some pastry thing I've never heard of...

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms?
    Dull pain in the right side of my stomach where baby has camped out for the majority of the last month, but still feeling pretty good. I had an ultrasound on Friday to check fetal size because I am measuring big according to fundal height but haven't heard anything.  I'm going to assume no news is good news.

    Doing anything baby-related this week?
    Not this week!

    GTKY: Feeling the urge to nest? What's on your to-do list?
    No urge to nest, but I have been walking around my house making lists of things I want cleaned / fixed/ put away before the baby comes.  I don't have the desire to do these things, but rather to hand the list to my husband and Mom... haha!

    @SparkySunshine Thanks! It's just because I'm so over work at this point... basically the first thing I do when I log on in the morning is hop on TB.

    31 weeks; otter, romaine lettuce, foam finger, crocembouche, asparagus

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms?
    hip pain, discharge, lots of movement... I feel like this has been the same for months! Haha. I'm waiting for more, but definitely very lucky and thankful that I haven't experienced anything too terrible :)

    Doing anything baby-related this week?
    My work shower is Thursday! Very very apreciative, but I can already anticipate the awkwardness!

    GTKY: Feeling the urge to nest? What's on your to-do list?
    We unexpectedly decided to change OBs, delivering hospital and prenatal classes due to the fact that while we could still be seen/deliver at the hospital we orginally chose, it was going to be a couple thousand dollars more than we expected. If we go to the hospital covered, we will pay nothing. So, it's been stressful but I'm glad we'll be saving that money and use it for the baby/house projects we need it for so desperately! 

    Nursery is as done as it can be until we have our showers. Then we'll go buy more clothes/items we still need. I need to get my act together in packing a hospital bag :)

    @SparkySunshine My nesting is the same way - everything non-baby is clean as a whistle, but the place where baby will actually live is a cluttered mess!

    How far along are you: 32w, size of a naked tail armadillo

    Rants/raves/symptoms:  The evening acrobatics are crazy now. I basically spend my nights watching my belly move around. He's so active!  Ribs are still sore from his headbutting and I don't enjoy when he pinches the nerve that makes it feel like my tailbone is shattering/ right butt cheek is pulled

    Doing anything baby related:  Growth scan tomorrow. My bump has been ahead since the half way mark and he measured 92nd percentile three weeks ago. I'm super curious to see if there's a pattern and he's a little monster or if it was inaccurate. 

    GTKY:  And how!  We moved a month ago so there's been a lot of getting the place set up and figuring out what furniture we need. This last weekend we got the last of things he needs for the nursery except a diaper pail/garbage can. Now it's on to art and fun touches!

    Its a day late, but oh well. No internet at home yet.

    How far along are you/what size is baby?
    30 weeks - size of a zucchini

    Rants/Raves/Symptoms?
    Getting use to the needing to pee all the time, but the heartburn I have had since day one has really gotten old. 

    Doing anything baby-related this week?
    My baby shower is Sunday and then the day after I have my next ultrasound! :smiley: 

    GTKY: Feeling the urge to nest? What's on your to-do list?
    Pretty much no urge to nest yet. Lots of stuff to do still, but a huge lack of energy to do any of it. It takes just about all I have in me to get to work and make it through a ten hour day. Hopefully my baby shower will spur me into wanting to rearrange my apartment and set everything up.

    @Weville In case you didn't see it over the weekend, there's a sale going on at Target right now. If you buy their diaper pail (by Munchkin), priced at $70, you get a $15 Target gift card. The sale goes through this Saturday, I believe!

    @soberkfell It makes me sad every time an awesome deal is talked about here. The version of Target we had really sucked though. It was always empty and trashed
