    6. Rants/raves/whateverRant is about back pain and having to watch what I eat because of GD. I'm ready to be done.

    7. Anything else on your mind? I complain about how long I have left, but really the weeks are flying by. It's getting close!

  • 2. how far along are you? EDD? Team green, pink, or blue?: 34 Weeks, Pink

    3. How are you feeling (pregnancy symptoms): Increasing pain levels, including BH and RLP. A lot of low back pain now. Lightheadedness when I go more than 2 hours with out eating, which is annoying as I don't get hungry at all any more.

    4. How are you feeling (anxiety wise): Not great, I had to do a non-stress test this morning and while baby is doing fine (strong HB, lots of movement/kicks), the OB is concerned about preeclampsia

    5. When is your next appointment?: Just had one this morning, next one is in two weeks if the test results come back OK.

    6. Rants/raves/whatever: Raves for my youngest sister who is staying with us and helping my husband paint and put together baby stuff.

    7. Anything else on your mind?: I'm trying to be excited about my shower on Saturday but I'm very anxious about my test results. I've been feeling worse and worse physically lately and I know I don't have nearly enough done for her to make an appearance... 

    8. GTKY - What is something about yourself that makes you feel beautiful?: my tattoos

  • Anyone else PGAL that still is worried something will go wrong? :(
    (My worst time of anxiety/worry was mid second trimester, since that's when my twins were born prematurely and died. I know I've been doing better since the 3rd trimester).
    I don't think my negative thoughts are obsessive or totally crazy, because realistically bad unexpected things can still happen.
    Sorry, I'm not sure the point of my post. Maybe I just think other PGAL mamas will understand?
    Prayers and good thoughts for healthy babies for all of us!

  • @FreshBakedBrownies I totally understand how you're feeling. I'm really trying not to think about it but I'm nervous about something going wrong too. TW - my SIL lost her daughter shortly after birth and I know it has nothing to do with me but it freaks me out. Plus I'm nervous about being induced and that causing something to go wrong. I'm praying that everything will be ok for all of us!

  • @FreshBakedBrownies I definitely am. My best friend lost her baby around the same time as me and we both got pregnant again 20weeks apart. She was always worried just as much as I do now. It's hard and I don't think (at least for me) that that feeling will go away until she's here in my arms. Thankfully it's getting towards the end for us now, but I told DH I literally don't think I can do this again. The anxiety has just been too rough this entire time. 

    He did comfort me by saying that there are percentages for survival rate and at this point now, there's not a percentage anymore just an assumed 100%. I know things can still happen but we're all getting to that point where everything should be ok. Hugs momma! I know it's hard, but we're really close to being done now

    Thanks @becbec28 and @Aussie45, I know chances are great that all our babies will be fine! I guess I just needed to share my PGAL worries with someone!
    TW- I too have had two friends whose babies had no known issues found before birth, but didn't make it long after birth. So true though that it has nothing to do with me! But it does remind me how fragile life can be abd there are no guarantees. 
    Hugs & prayers ladies!

  • @FreshBakedBrownies It definitely makes it harder when you know of or hear stories like that. I feel it's hard to be positive after a loss just because you're almost expecting the worst. Even though there are loads of women who's babies make it through pregnancy and grow up, it's hard to picture that right now. We WILL get our rainbow babies.
