  • Yay @rhubarb123 !!! Can't wait for details :)

    1) how far along are you?  34w5d

    2) any appointments this week?   Not until next Monday when they are doing my group B strep. Thinking I may be at the point where they will be doing "checks" down there from here on out.. oh boyyy

    3) how are you feeling? Any raves, concerns, or gripes?  Starting to stress about the baby coming early, and I have absolutely no reason to think that it will. I'm just so physically and mentally unprepared at this point that even the thought that it could happen is sending me into a panic.

    4) gtky: if you could be on any reality tv show would you and which one?  Haha, I doubt it.

    New sensation is my hip feeling like its coming out of join sometimes (I figure ligaments stretching), tired, hungry but also so over GD. Wanting to eat all the cake, ice cream and baked goods possible...and not doing it. Not sleeping awesome...and all the peeing at night. Plus trying to get everything squared away with work as we get closer and closer. Also not wanting summer to end...fall weather has started creeping its way in and its like we just started having summer. I would love a warm and long fall (like no snow until November)

    Starting to realize there is a handful of things that I still need to buy that were on my registry that no one got (which is fine) but I now need to make sure to order on amazon. 

    Raves: I had 2 showers this weekend and feel super super loved and supported. Its so nice to be surrounded by your community of people.
