    Asparagus?? 

    I have an appointment in two hours and im pretty nervous bc up until last week everything seemed so normal and then last week was a whirlwind or dr visits, hospital visit, and problems. Now we have to check b's fluid again and of course their sizes, so I'm just hoping for everything to show up normal. 

    It seems strange to complain about bed rest, but I'm not the type to enjoy sitting around so it's been a little emotional for me.

    I had my in laws come over the weekend sip they could babysit while we finished our to dos and whatever i couldn't do, dh got done with them later while dd napped. So everything is finished incase these girls decide to come early.

    I believed in a fairy that brought presents to sleepovers If you left a little cash under your pillow...

    How big is baby? Plastic scooter board (whatever that is)

    Any appointments this week?  yup, tomorrow growth ultrasound

    Symptoms? having trouble sleeping, I just can't get comfortable

    Rants/Raves/Questions? We found a rocker/recliner for the nursery this weekend. I am super excited. It gets delivered on Thursday!!

    What's your progress or plans for your baby to do list? So far so good. Waiting on my shower until I can finish up the nursery...which is making me anxious because I really want to get that item done off the list. But alas I will just need to wait

    GTKY: What was the strangest thing you believed as a child? 
    I thought when you had x-rays done a little guy jumped in through your ear to take pictures.

    @Jkp7749 good luck on your appointment later this morning. Sending good juju your way!

    How big is baby? Coconut

    Any appointments this week? Next week

    Symptoms? Upper back pain mostly in the evenings.  I also feel squished... Like nothing else can fit in my belly after I eat. Sometimes I have the shallow breathing too @kns1988 try raising your hands above your head when it happens... My doc suggested this and it helps me.

    Rants/Raves/Questions? Snowstorm tomorrow is not making me happy. Snowdays  means more make up days at school which potentially shortens my maternity leave. Not happy. 

    What's your progress or plans for your baby to do list? The nursery is almost done which is a huge accomplishment since it started off as a gross wallpapered room with an old light fixture and drop ceilings. My husband did an amazing job removing the wallpaper, painting, wainscotting, and drywalling the ceiling.

    GTKY: What was the strangest thing you believed as a child? 
    I believed that Santa was real, but I knew the Easter Bunny and tooth fairy were my parents.

    How big is baby? Acorn Squash, apparently

    Any appointments this week? Nope this is my week off

    Symptoms? Heartburn continues, starting to get a little low back pain, but I'm hoping it's just because I had a very busy weekend at work. 

    Rants/Raves/Questions? Nothing too exciting this week! 

    What's your progress or plans for your baby to do list? This is a big week! I'm on spring break from school and took a PTO day from work so I'm off work AND school until Monday! MH unfortunately has an out of town conference this week although that means I get to do/eat/watch anything I want in the evenings. My dad is coming over two days this week to help me out new hardware in the nursery closet and assemble our dresser :) I'm planning to do some nursery decoration as well. I'm excited that I'll have somewhere to put all our cute little clothes and diapers etc! 

    GTKY: What was the strangest thing you believed as a child? 
    I'm struggling to think of something even though I know there must be several. I believed in Santa until way too old to be normal - probably 4th grade! Also, in kindergarten, my dad used to drink a can or two of Diet Coke in the morning and a can or two of BudLight or something similar in the evening. I told my kindergarten teacher that my dad drank "red beer" in the morning and "blue beer" at night. Yeah... my parents got a phone call from my teacher.  :D

    How far along are you? 33 weeks

    How big is baby? Ferret

    Any appointments this week? Short, regular visit on Wednesday. 

    Symptoms? RLP, insomnia, mild lower back pain started in the last week

    Rants/Raves/Questions? After 3 weeks of a bad sinus infection, I was able to finally run again this morning. Not fast at all but still got 3 miles in which is great because my body had been feeling sore from not working out. On Thursday DH and I get to go on our little baby moon! Going to the mountains for 2 nights while my mom watches our kids. I definitely need this break and can't wait! 

    What's your progress or plans for your baby to do list? Bought the infant car seat and diaper bag this past week. Also pre-registered for our hospital stay. I wanted to pull out the kids' clothes this past weekend (changing sizes) but I didn't get to so will probably try to do it this week. I want to get a to-do list written up to make sure I miss nothing and set up an appointment to have the car seats checked at the hospital. If I have time, I will try to order a nursing gown and/or start packing my hospital bag. 

    GTKY: What was the strangest thing you believed as a child? 
    We didn't believe in santa but we believed in the three kings (wise men) and I apparently was too naive and my parents too convincing because I believe until I was almost 12. 

    @Jkp7749 - FX for a good appointment! Keep us updated.

    How big is baby?
    A zucchini? 
    Any appointments this week?
    Next week
    Symptoms?
    After my mad dash after DS my pelvis is really messed up. I can barely walk but I think it's getting better. 
    My energy is still really good- probably because I'm finally taking my iron pills. 
    Rants/Raves/Questions?
    Should I be packing my hospital bag and installing the car seat?  It seems early. My baby shower is 4/1 so I was going to get everything set up after that. 
    What's your progress or plans for your baby to do list? 
    I have moved DS to a big boy bed and moved some furniture into the nursery. I Still need to move the chair up from the basement and wash everything, receive and install the car seat, pack a hospital bag- pretty much everything! 
    GTKY: What was the strangest thing you believed as a child?
    we believed in santa for a looooooong time at our house. *christmas magic* I guess.

  • How far along are you?
    31 Weeks! Down to single digit countdown

    How big is baby?
    The size of a foam finger

    Any appointments this week?
    No OB appointments, however I do have an allergist appointment!! 

    Symptoms?
    starting to have a hard time sleeping, not much else right now other than the usual...

    Rants/Raves/Questions?
    We had our baby shower this weekend! IT was over the top beautiful and amazing! What have other people done to thank the host? I want something sweet and sentimental...

    What's your progress or plans for your baby to do list? 
    We painted the room, set up the crib, and rocking chair!! We are getting the dresser this weekend

    GTKY: What was the strangest thing you believed as a child?
    I didn't think I had a grandma, I even went home crying about a grandma tea at school and I had noone to go... We called my grandma  Yia-Yia.... umm yep, my mom was like well Yia-Yia will go with you, that made me cry even more since she wasn't "grandma" hahaha

    How big is baby?
    Motorcycle Helmet or zucchini... which seem like vastly different sizes! 

    Any appointments this week?
    None this week!

    Symptoms?
    Lots of movement (mostly towards my bladder!) at night. My sciatic pain seems to be returning unfortunately and insomnia. 

    Rants/Raves/Questions?
    DD1 and DD2 both hung out super high and I always got painful jabs to the ribs. This LO is hanging out super low and I get most jabs to the bladder. I'd gladly take the rib jabs back then have the sudden urge to pee! 

    What's your progress or plans for your baby to do list? 
    I had a minor panic attack thinking about all the things I need to get done/but the other day but I made a list on my phone (thanks insomnia) last night that I think helped me visualize. The list is a lot longer than I was hoping but I think it's manageable. 

    GTKY: What was the strangest thing you believed as a child?
    This is a good question, and a hard one! I was pretty naive as a child so I probably was one of those kids who believed in Santa far too long. Although I secretly hope my kids believe in him for a long long time as well! Seeing Christmas magic through your kids eyes is so fun!

  • @ShadeofGreen816 I have a list of baby items and I made my own list for hospital bag stuff (taken from your spreadsheet!) I have so many lists saved on my phone for various things, I love lists! 

    Here's the baby items to buy (keep in mind this is LO#3 so I still have a lot of useable items from the previous two!)
