    This. But I'm also back to being freezing alllll the time. Sleeping in sweats and hoodies. But then waking up sweating. So fun.

  • @serenity13 That meme is the story of my life! It's not like we'll magically forget to tell people the baby's here!

    @kjd291 Thst is my fear.... I accidentally stock piled more size 1s than I thought and the closer I get to my due date the more nervous I'm getting since I'm measuring 2 weeks ahead as it is.... Haha 
  • I have the opposite problem @kjd291 - I have very few newborn clothes and I'm pretty sure baby girl will be in them at least two more weeks. I do laundry every three days, lol.

  • Ugh my baby is between NB/0-3mo & I had to have my mother pick up some mitten shirts from Carters as the sleeves aren't long enough on the NB stuff in some of the other brands and she ends up with curled wrists.  NB footies present a similar problem but at this point a shit & a swaddle for pants works.  I love the A&A swaddles.
  • @kiyamurph haha I almost wish I could have my baby secretly & not have a few people know until he's at least a few weeks old.

    @disneybaby84 awww!!! So cute!!

    I'm also starting to worry about the size of diapers I stockpiled being too small...I only bought 3 things in "newborn" size but I might be returning them if he's gonna be as big as I anticipate. I haven't had any growth checks/measurements since around 24 weeks (when they told me he was ginormous & measuring 3 weeks ahead) so I'm pretty excited to find out how big he's actually gonna be. I think I'll feel less nervous about breaking him if he'll be a bigger baby.

  • I'm in @longliveregina's boat. DS1 stretched out the NB clothes we have, so A is swimming in everything. And I keep having to buy NB diapers, too. But he has gained 10 ounces in the past week! Up to 6lb9oz now.

    I thought LO was going to be way bigger than she was (especially at my last OB appointment I was measuring 2 weeks ahead) so definitely didn't have enough newborn diapers...had to get more. Thankfully have enough newborn clothes, had to buy some more pants because it's too cold right now to just wear a onesie...don't think she will be ready for 0-3 clothes or size 1 diapers for awhile! She has gained over 8 oz in 1 week so hopefully will chunk up in no time :)

  •  :D :D  

    The other benefit of the shirt & swaddle is the ease of access to the diaper  ;)

    Same here! I was in denial that Dean needed premie sized clothes even though ALL of his NB sized clothing was baggy and a pain to dress him in. He was 2 weeks early and weighed 6lbs9oz, but now that we own a few premie sleepers.. my life has been made 10x easier!

    Same here. My baby was swimming in newborn clothes so she's basically just wearing the same few smaller outfits in rotation

  • add me to the cold lady with the night sweats club. i wake up drenched!!  :s

    DD skipped newborn size too, well she was in them for like  2 days haha. she still fits in NB diapers though so hopefully we will go through the leftovers my neighbor gave us and we can move on to my box of 1s ..but that sounds too convenient haha

  • Do your worst Stella! All I can hope is the worse the storm is the more likely this child will make her entrance! Only 5 days past due date, but I'm done.

    DS has always been a pretty good sleeper. He's also a rather cautious child and doesn't do much climbing or getting into things although that's starting to change. So, at 2.5 he has still been sleeping in the crib. Until now. He learned how to climb into the crib. Of course, I'm not going to wait until he figures out he can climb out of it too. Now I'm due in 4 days and transitioning the toddler to sleeping on a mattress on the floor. I hope this doesn't mess him up too much:(

    That's so scary @longliveregina I'm so glad you're ok.

    Rest ladies. Your family depends on you. This is a marathon not a sprint. Put the chores on hold. It's so hard to sit still, but this story is scary!

  • I hope all is ok @longliveregina!
    TW as well -

    A week after my MMC and D&C last year the same thing happened to me. I thought something was seriously wrong. I was gushing blood and giant clots filling a pad each gush. I went to the ER and they did an ultrasound and didn't see anything at all. It stopped and everything was fine again. Very weird and scary. Hopefully it's nothing for you as well!

  • @longliveregina One of my biggest fears is something happening to me and it just being me and the boys home. That is so scary, but I'm glad it's slowing down. I'll be thinking about you!

    @silverbulletband Yes! I hate it! My DH asks me all the time "anything?" as if I would forget to mention that something has changed...

    My due date is the 25th and DH just told me he has a very important meeting he'll have to fly to utah for the day on the 29th. He's in sales and trying to close a big deal before he can devote his full time to his paternity leave, which Inrationally understand but selfishly I'm just not cool with this. Even if baby is here by then these crazy bleeding stories have me worried I shouldn't be alone for even a day in case something happens. I could probably find a friend to come help but not sure I'll be up for that either so soon Post partum. I did not need this stress right now. For those that have given birth could you have handled things solo for a day 4-5 days postpartum?

  • @BaylieGirl  depends on vaginal or csection delivery, but either way, it would be extremely difficult.  C section sounds like it would be impossible.
  • @longliveregina that sounds so scary! I'm so glad it slowed and you are OK!

    @BaylieGirl That would be a hard no from me if my DH wanted to plan a trip that close to my due date.  You could still be pregnant at that time and he might miss the baby's birth!

  • @silverbulletband - I've had some on/off contractions, but I'm not calling my midwife every time. I'll mention it at my appt this week, but I don't think its weird for them to ask. 

    I've started to get the pity greetings at work. "You're still here? You poor thing!". Yes, I'm still here. I could still be here for 3 more weeks.
